THE DRINK QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Corryong Courier — 6 August 1914
THE DUJKK. QUESTION. Drunkenness, whether troatcd as a crimo or (is a disease (says the Leader), presents difficulties almost insuperable). Guol is no remedy, to ripply to this subject a very notable saying, for ex perience shows that punishmont has raroly any deterrent influence. Tho habitual drunkard is impervious to nny perstiaaion of thia character, and siuli3 lower and lower in moral degradation, until ho accepts the lockup 01 prison cell as a natural and ineviublo co.'iMSquonce. As aoou as he obtains his release, ho roaumos hia customary habit and tho old process ia rupoated. The uiodicnl profession has accepted the conclusion that tho craving for drink is a symptom of disoaso, some times a lcgficy of inheritance, at othors, solf-iuducud through an exocsa of abandon ment. But the eradication of thia desire is not easy of attainment. Total abstinence may be olljetuiil if thoro is n sufficiency of will power to soetiro its onforcuuient, but unfortunately this re quirement is sel...

The official announcement that Great Britain has declared war against Germany, which was re ceived by the Prime Minister (Mr Cook)" yesterday and communi cated to the State Premiers sweeps away the last hope that Britain would be able to refrain trom active participation in the European em broglio. With France and Russia both engaged, it was difficult to see how Britain was going to re main neutral, for any improve ment in Germany's position would have created an intolerable situ ation later on. In one way it is a relief to know that the die is cast, and we now know where we are. Accident.—Charles Murphy, aged 56, an old resident of this district, is at present an inmate of Albury Hospital.

"THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER." [Newspaper Article] — Corryong Courier — 6 August 1914

In reference to .1 recent obituary notiee on John Riley, of Tom liroggin, "An Old Hand on Monaro" writes as follows in the issue of '-i7t.il ult. of the "Cooma Mer cury" :— In your issue of Monday last there ap pears ail obituary notice of John Kiley, who ii. is stated was the original of 1'at terson's "Mail from Snowy liiver." How many are there who claim to have been the one who inspired those lines? About half a dozen have died, and dozen* are slill living who claim this distinction, bike heroes in romance, 1 think '-The Man from Snowy Kiver" was a myth. Jiut if anyone was entitled to that dis tinction it was not Kiley, lor in his young days there were men on the Snowy Kiver who could loai; Jack ill rou^'h country, and lie never could ride a Uuckjuuiper.
