Death Result of Accident at the Naval Base. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

Death Result of Accident at the Naval Base. On the 22nd of May last, Frederick Odgers and Samuel Wells were thrown to the ground through a planking (3 x 1 in.) breaking, whilst working on scaffolding, at the Naval Base, Port Stephens. The distance the men fell was about 9 feet. Wells escaped without injury, but Odgers cut his arm and hurt his leg. He could not work for some days and was taken to his home at Teralba. Odgers came back to Port Stephens and worked until the 5th June, when he com- plained of his leg and had to go home again. He was removed from Teralba on the 14th June to the Wallsend Hospital, where he died on the 19th June. Deceased told Dr. F. G. Shallshear he had ulcers on one leg before the accident. The doctor was inclined to think that the exciting cause was the fall, inasmuch as it caused the veins of the leg to become affected by the ulcers, and so setting up general septicaemia (blood poison- ing). At the inquest held at the Wallsend Court House, on the 7th ins...

Picnic to Departing Soldiers. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

Picnic to Departing Soldiers. Ou Sunday week a picnic to Fern Bay was tendered to Privates W. Ross, O. Brown, and T. King who are going to the front. Arriving at the Bay the committee soon got to work and arranged the good things supplied, Mr. Butterworth being voted to the chair. After the usual loyal and patriotic toasts had been drunk, the chair- man called upon Mr. Watt to pre- sent a gold medal to Pte. Ross. Mr. Warner decorated Pte. Brown, and Mr. Plant decorated Pte. King each with gold medals. The boys responded in a feeling manner. Cheers were given for the Allies and those who are going away. A football match was arranged be- tween The Wowsers (Capt. Bill Watt) and the Eleven O'clockers (Capt. Abe Warner). The game was fast while it lasted and con- cluded in a draw. On the journey home, the captain took the boys out to the bar (this bar is never closed— at the time our boys thought it ought to be). This was the first day the boys have had a good chance to remain in the bos...

Fun at Waratah P.L.L. Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

Fun at Waratah P.L.L. Meeting. The general meeting of the Wara- tah Political Labour League was held at Manning's Hotel, Waratah, during the week. There were about 30 members present, all looking serious, but a few tried to look wise. The President (Mr. Markham) occupied the chair; he looked uncomfortable from the start, as if he could see trouble brewing. The meeting was larger than the two previous ones, as on both occasions only the President, Mr Jobn Markham. and the Secre- tary, Mr. James Baird, were present, but the resolutions they passed were never read, so they could not be con-   firmed. The best thanks of the meeting is due to Billy Lynch, the well-known athlete. It is said he was canvassing for members for a whole week, and be managed to rake in Arnie Ellis, who was a tower of strength to his party, all of whom sat on the opposi- tion benches , Just as they were all sitting down calmly, and the chairman thought he had things all his own way, he called on Mr....

Carrington Dry Hash. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

Carrington Dry Hash. A little excitement was caused early on Sunday morning, through a bomb exploding near the Basin. A number of residents ran to the scene, but found nothing but a few fragments of Holdmetite. Some of the nippers must have been having a joke. While travelling around with the "Argus," I heard the following re-   marks exchanged between two ladies. First lady: "The dearth of work at   the Dyke caused her husband to drink, and when he came home he could see green elephants!" "Is     that all?" said the other lady,   "you're a lucky woman. My Bill   can see green dogs, and he wants money in the morning to buy licenses for them." Kendall was the last man to ship   on the Chillagoe. A letter from a   shipmate just to hand states that the first thing he did, when getting on board, was having a good bath on both hands. By George ! The big fellow won a game of snooker las...

War Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

War Notes. The progress of the war is all in the Allies' favour. On the West- ern front the Allies are gaining ground. From Gommecourt to Chaulnes, a fighting line of about 30 miles, the Anglo-French have   done good work. The enemy has been pushed back on this front on an average of 3½ miles. The best gains have been in the Somme River region, where, in places, five miles of territory has been wrested from the enemy by hard fighting. The Allies' objective is the capture of Peronne. Our troops are within two miles of this dominating posi- tion. The Allies are confident. * * * It has been asked, if, as is stated, the Allies have a preponderance of men and munitions, why is the advance so slow ? To the outsider it seems strange. But it must be remembered the Allies have to feel their way. They have to avoid all sorts of traps. For instance, what is to prevent the laying of mines in a dozen places ; then put up a feeble fight and retire. A rush of Anglo-French would be eas...

For the Public Good. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

For the Public Good. There is a matter which requires the serious consideration of the Newcastle Borough Council. It is some pro- vision for shelter and seating accom- modation for travellers by tram, from the suburbs, in the heart of the city, at the Plantation, Broadway. During the wet, rough weather experienced lately, it was painful to see women and children awaiting trams at this   section for the return journey home.       Most of the travellers are tired and footsore from long walks through the city over hard pavements ; and any standing under such condition for even a few minutes at this busy centre, is a severe physical test in ;??!,.? v, v.: .. ? -dim ' 1 1 ir. !?.. . :if*li-' '-, ?,-,': .-, j- j[iulatiiii. . r«fugi' ti.di-r , verandahs iu ti. ?? ..diate vicinity, then race across a muddy thoroughfare to catch a tram ; it is also unfair to impede pedestrian traffic; and the   shopkeeper, who relies on busines...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

Local and General. A whale-boat is for sale at the Pilot Station, Newcastle. The Newcastle Municipal Band have just donned their new uniforms of navy blue and red facings. The band looks spic and span, a la militaire. It is generally believed that the oldest native born Australian is George Robert Tuckwell, of Parra- matta. He was born Jan. 10, 1822, consequently is 95 years of age. Mr. W. M. Hughes, Prime Minister of the Commonwealth, touched at Capetown, S.A., en route to Aus- tralia. Mr. Hughes was enthusiastic- ally received, and honored during his few hours' stay in Africa, The local War Chest (Button) com- mittee held its final meeting on Wed- nesday last, Mr. W. A. Sparke presiding. The Hon. Treas. (Mr. Morgan) stated the total from all sources was £889. The balance sheet gave details, and was adopted.

The 14th of July. AUSTRALIANS JOIN FRANCE IN CELEBRATIONS NEWCASTLE TO THE FORE. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

The 14th of July. AUSTRALIANS JOIN FRANCE IN CELEBRATIONS NEWCASTLE TO THE FORE. Yesterday was the 127th anniver- sary of the Fall of the Bastille, July 14, 1789. It is the French people's national day, and peculiarly Australians joined hands with France in the celebration. The Bastille was erased in the cause of Freedom ; and   to-day the Anglo-French armies are   making an heroic effort to destroy the German Bastille which threatens the Liberty of Nations. But the Australians had a more pratical motive in celebrating July 14 It was to raise a fund for the French desti- tute, and punctuate British apprecia- tion of the gallant fight put up by the French at Verdun and other sectors. And right royally Newcastle did its share. The local promoters are to be congratulated for the manner in which the programme was handled and carried to a successful con- clusion. The weather in the morning did not look too promising. But as noon approached the sun shonee gladly ...

PRESIDENT POINCARE'S MESSAGE TO THE BRITISH NATION [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

PRESIDENT POINCARE'S MES- SAGE TO THE BRITISH NATION On learning that the British Em- pire was celebrating the French National Day, the French President (M. Poincare) was deeply touched, and sent the following message to the people of the British Empire : — "I   have learnt with feelings of deep emotion that France's Fete Day is being commemorated throughout the Empire. The French nation has watched with unbounded admiration the deed's of Britain's glorious navy, and the wonderful development of the Empire's mighty resources. Now, when the British Army, along- side the French and other gallant Allies, is paving the way to final mastery, France sends affectionate greetings of lasting brotherhood to the United Kingdom and her Dominions overseas."

A couple of members of the sect will be remembered when they preached at street corners in Newcastle. The man wore long hair and beard...

Notes from Westy. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Argus and District Advertiser — 15 July 1916

Notes from Westy. On Tuesday night a social was held in the School of Arts in aid of the institution. There was a very large attendance. If the public would turn out to every dance like on Tuesday they would soon help to rise   the funds. Charlo and Tommy are very fond of dancing for they travel the globe — as far as Youngy and Minmi. Cook's on Mon- day, School of Arts dance on Tuesday, Mugs' dance on Wednesday, Youngy on Thursday, Minmi on Friday, and Youngy again on Saturday. I think someone ought to get a surprise dance for Sunday for them. I see the two topers are still knocking about the town. They must put some beer away. I am sure they will be sorry when the six o'clock act comes in. Things are pretty quiet since Johnny went away. I wonder how be likes his new job. He is sure to be home this week end, as I think he has lost his heart. Why is Youngy like Zambuk? Be cause it is good for Burns.
