VERDUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 30 May 1916

VEfcDUN. ? , Verdun, the little city on the Meuse, will go? down to history as the scene of one of the fier cest battles of all time. His tory is repeating itself. In the '. days of the Prussian invasion, in the late summer of 1870, Ver dun was attacked, very gallantly defended, attacked again after the fatal battle of Sedan, again gallantly defended; and at last only taken when the surrender of Marshal Bazaine at Metz relea sed a hundred thousand Prussi ans to -overwhelm the little town. Then, -because of its heroic re sistance, the King of Prussia, not yet crowned Emperor of Ger many, gave it honorable terms of capitulation. In the present war it has formed the angle of the battle line almost from the first ; the ? invading Germans ben ding westward from that point, and swinging on Verdun, as on -s. pivot, in the first great drive towards Paris. At that time it was magnificently defended by General -Sarrail, now in command at Salonica, and it is said that General Joffre said to hi...

THE FIGHT FOR FORT DOUAUMONT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 30 May 1916

THE FIGHT FOR FORT DOUAU MONT. The 'Daily Mail's' correspon dent at Paris says the French weakness at Fort Douaumont lies in the tangle of ravines from Lavauche Hill, which terminate at the base of the north-western salient of the fort. When the French recaptured the fort the Crown Prince brought up 120,000 troops from Valenciennes and Cambrai. Ths attack was still a failure at dawn on Wednesday, when the Crown Prince ordered that the operation be hastened. Finally 50,000 Bavarians attack ed on a front of 3000 yards. The storming parties were so dense that they choked the ravines. The French had the exact range. Every gun within 10,000 yards was trained on the narrow cor ridors, the French Ineanwhile sheltering behind the. ruined cra ters and walls. The German ar tillery made it almost impossi ble to get supplies, and ammu nition was running low, so the French retreated to previously, prepared trenches on the south ern slopes of the fort, and are awaiting a favorable moment to sally...

THE IRISH PROBLEM. The House of Commons was crowded, and listened to Mr. Asquith's statement on the Trieh situation with the most intense interest. He rejoiced that there was overwhelming evidence that the araat bulk of Irish omnion. — — ^ — ? ? — — ? — j_- — — — j among all creeds and parties, had no sympathy with, the re cent ill-advissd undertaking. Mar tial law had been continued as a precautionary measure,- but he hoped it would b-i abolished speedily and completely. The composition of the Irish executive must for the time being be pro visional. Ry feared a general de bate now would tend to create an atmosphere unfavorable for an appeal which his colleagues and himself unitedly felt it their duty to make without delay. His visit to Ireland was inten ded to get a first-hand view of the whole situation. He saw with his own eyes the heartren ding desolation which these un happy and misguided men had wrought over a large area in Dublin.- He had visited, and talked with the utmost f...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. HOWARD VERNON CO. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 30 May 1916

LOCAL AND GENERAL HOWARD VERNON CO. This talented company played at the Literary Institute on Fri day night last to a small house. The unprbpitious , weather may pdssibly have affected the atten dance, but this paper is incli ned to tnuiK mat tne result was . due more to ignorance of the merits of the company. That those who remained away mis sed a treat is admittedly true- It was the best and most enjoy able entertainment this writer has witnessed in Braidwood for quite a while. Miss Vinia de Loitte possesses a very fine voice of considerable range, and her selections from a number of com ic operas were indeed gems, par ticularly her rendering of 'Poor Wandering One,' which in itself was worth the admission money. With Mr. Howard Vernon, she took part in a couple of musical comedies, which were most amu sing1. Mr. Howard Vernon is now ' creeping on in years, but the voice' which commanded such a large salary some years ago in Gilbertian opera in Sydney shows very little signs of Mr...

King George, in a message to the peo ple announcing the operation of the Act, expresses appreciation of the fact that by voluntary enlistment no fewer than 5,041.000 have been enrolled. A semi-official message states that the fighting at Verdun con tinues with ths fiercest violence. The fighting on Wednesday as sumed a desperation that has not been reached since the struggle began. The German command de termined at all cost to obtain a result, and was more than ever prodigal with the sacrifice of men. The Bavarians at Douau mont made repeated untiring des perate assaults. The French in fantry made a veritable massa cre, showing1 marvellous bite in their resistance against which the most furious assaults ?-were successively broken. Eventually the Germans at the end1- of the day penetrated the fort. -?- The present conflict surpasses all its predecessors. Really a general battle was bs?gun on the French init...
