#dailycolonist1914 - News out of Victoria, British Columbia, 100 years ago today:
- Front page map of Kiao-Chau Bay [ Jiaozhou Bay / 胶州湾 ] and area around Tsing-Tau [ Qingdao / 青岛 ]. German fort expected to fall soon.
- North Sea officially closed to commercial traffic due to surreptitiously deployed mines.
- United States secret service warns the Canadian government of a suspected attack on the Welland Canal (the locks that allow ships to bypass Niagra Falls) [with wording that echoes the "terrorist" rhetoric of 2014.]
