#dailycolonist1914 - News out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago today:
- German advance toward French ports on the English Channel still stymied.
- Hundreds of thousands of Belgian refugees in England and Netherlands. Those still in Belgium [including my maternal grandparents] facing starvation.
- Trade negotiations for British Columbia to provide lumber to Australia at a preferential within-the-Empire rate going well.
