LET US END WAR! To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
LET US END WAR! &nbsp; To the Editor. Sir,-"If we do not end war, war will end us," wrote Lord Kryce the other day, and the pithy saying may be an awful truth, because war as it is waged in these days is an immeasur- ably more murderous and devastating and disturbing thing than it was in the days of our fathers. The killed and disabled in this war amount to the ex- termination of the English people in, say, the times of the Tudors or are the equivalent in number of any one of sev- eral of the smaller European nations. The unborn, an English statistical au- thority has stated, probably are double the killed and disabled. So has life &nbsp; been sacrificed. And the suffering could not be expressed in figures or words. Yet we have no guarantee that we have seen the worst of war. Let war abide among the tolerated evils, and we may have conflicts in the fu- ture which will so far exceed the strug- gle of 1914-18 as to place it out of comparison, as all the old wars have &...
SMILES [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
SMILES &nbsp; A Detroit judge ruled the other day that a married man has a right to go down town two nights each week. lt is understood that shortly after the judge arrived home that evening tho ruling was reversed. Mr. Roosevelt is evidently no believer in the idea that this is a war to end war. "When peace comes," he said the other day, "we must remain so prepared that no country will dare to took cross-eyed at us." Prince Frederick of Hesse will only accept the Finnish crown if the people really want him. In fact, he prefers to be a king in Hesse rather than in posse. lt is estimated that since April 6, 1917, 483,000 poems have been written bearing the line "sadder and wiser" to rhyme with "Kaiser." Two negroes were discussing the pos- sibilities of being drafted. "Tain't gwine do 'em any good to pick on me," said Lemuel, sulkily. "Ah certainly ain't gwine do any fightin'. Ah ain't lost nothin' oveh in France. Ah ain't got any quarrel with a-n-y-body, and &nbsp; U...
The Advocate. FAIR AND IMPARTIAL SATURDAY, JANUARY ll, 1919. HOMAGE TO THE NURSES. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
The Advocate. FAIR AND IMPARTIAL SATURDAY, JANUARY 11, 1919. HOMAGE TO THE NURSES. When the history of this greatest of all wars comes to be written in calm perspective by the historian, nothing will stand out with more deserved pro- minence than the silent heroism of the women who shared its worst dangers and eased its awful sufferings. When the call came, this very noble band of women as nurses of the Red Cross answered it. In the motherland, and in each of the Dominions, with tender, womanly feeling, casting off all con- ventional restraint and moved by self- sacrificing love, they cheerfully enrolled and they went forth. They sought no reward; they asked only for the means to aid them in ministering to the wounded and the stricken. What man- ner of women they were, one and all of them, we know - Edith Cavell was the mark and symbol of them all. In the opening weeks of the struggle they appealed for the means wherewith to begin and continue their heroic work. "No heart in the Bri...

Brand, labor agent, as the re- &nbsp; sult of which Patrick M'Kenna, 54, &nbsp; ploughman, was arrested and now awaits his trial on a charge of shoot- ing with intent.

He was told there was none, and went off. He &nbsp; came back again when Brand's part- &nbsp; ner, Mr. Neilson, had gone to lunch. Opening the office door, he presented &nbsp; himself to Brand and again inquired if there were any work for him. Brand replied there was...

STATE'S DEBTS SIR ELLIOTT LEWIS' PLANS. REDUCTION" OF £327,473. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
STATE'S DEBTS SIR ELLIOTT LEWIS PLANS. REDUCTION" OF £327,473. HOBART, Friday. - Sir Elliott Lewis to-day informed "The Advo- cate's" Hobart representative that he had made considerable progress since the beginning of the year in the comb- ing out of proposals he had outlined in his financial statement last session for the reduction of the public debt of the State. He added: "The sum of £32,483 held by the &nbsp; Commonwealth Bank, and represent- ing a portion of the assets held over by that bank when the business of the State Savings Bank was transferred to it in 1912, has been absolutely re- deemed by monies received from the Commissioner of the Public Debts Sinking Fund, and a further sum of £5175, representing a special sinking &nbsp; fund has been invested at fixed deposit &nbsp; &nbsp; with the Commonwealth Bank for equivalent sums.

RAIN MAKING THHE BALSILLIE EXPERIMENTS. CAN THEY BE JUSTIFIED? [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
THE BALSILLIE EXPERIMENTS. CAN THEY BE JUSTIFIED? The meteorological experts of the older world are not disposed to give much credence to the fanciful claims that have been made from time to time on behalf of the Balsillie rain-making invention, on which the Commonwealth Government has been squandering the taxpayers' money for several years past. A cable message published in "The Advocate" this week indicated that British meteorologists regard such inventions as "humbug" and unless some tangible result is shown in the inmmediate future the people of Austra- lia, if they have not already done so, will endorse that view. The Balsillie invention was first tried under the aegis of the Commonwealth Government at Bookaloo, 52 miles from Port Augusta. In July, 1917, the Gov- ernment decided to purchase two more stations at a cost of £400 each, with an annual maintenance charge of £400. In the estimates for 1918-19 a sum of £400 is set down, and the actual ex- penditure on account of the ex...
"PROHIBITION WITH COMPENSATION" To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 11 January 1919
PROHIBITION WITH COMPENSA- TION" &nbsp; To the Editor. Sir,-The letter of "A Square &nbsp; Deal" in "The Advocate" of Janu- ary 8, deserves the careful attention of the Australian, and particularly of &nbsp; the Tasmanian public. Coming on &nbsp; the top of your report of the Ulver- stone drowning fatality, it greatly &nbsp; strengthens the case for prohibition &nbsp; with compensation. The Ulverstone &nbsp; case is that of a returned soldier. He exiled himself from wife and home, and fought for the Empire. He help- ed to win fame for Australia, and was spared to return.' One afternoon he &nbsp; is supplied with at least five drinks and a bottle of beer. The last person to see him alive says he was "very much under,the influence of liquor" &nbsp; at 8 p.m. He is determined to get home. After abnormally stimula- ting the heart's action with alcohol, he undertakes prolonged immersion in cold with violent exertion....
