Hindmarsh was undoubtedly an 'officer of character and ability' in his own pro fession,' but ' his.' work , in England before the expedition sailed, and his administra tion of the colony, were distinguished neither by ability nor by success.

AUTHORITATIVE STATEMENT Progress Taking Place LONDON, January 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Register News-Pictorial — 5 January 1929

AUTHORITATIVE STATE MENT Progress Taking Plate - - LONDON; January 3.° An authoritative statement addressed to. the medical profession, for publication in The Lancet and the British Medical ournal. - was issued from the nalaca '. to- night. It reads:— . ? For a true understanding oi the posi tion, it must be emphasized that neither in its inception nor in its subsequent course has the King's illness conformed to what is called pleuro-pneumonia. Rather it was a streptoccal septicaemia, which by a fortunate happening was localized at the base of the right lung, at first imperfectly, 'later as an empyema— fixation. abscess— forming between the base of the lung and the diaphragm. In the second stage of the illness, vide report of December 22, the clinical pic ture—a dusky appearance, dry, cracked tongue, delirium subsultus ,and exhaus tion—was that of severe toxemia re sembling that of a case of severe typhoid fever. Now the picture is that of the aftermath of severe general infection. ...

"THE WORLD'S WORST." Communist on Russian Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Register News-Pictorial — 5 January 1929

'THE. WORLD'S WORST.' Communist on Russian Industry. The speech delivered by Stalin, secre ary-general of the Communist Party, behind closed doors' to the central ' com mittee, has been released for nublication. It is a dull speech, the obvious result of a negative temporary compromise over policy, which has been anticipated. It was always evident that this'central com mittee would give nothing new— only what Lenin caOed 'breathing space.' Stalin advances no new positive, con structive policy or idea, but he docs, none the less, make two highly important, aluiough negative, and, in his view, prob ably temporary' concessions to the Right vving, under pressure of the food prob em. Agriculture, he said, must be deve loped more quickly than industry; i-econdly, only 2 or 3 per cent, of the peasants must— under the name of Kuloki the well-to-do peasant class)— be squeezed by the super-tax, and the present habit of taxing 10 or 12 per cent, as Kulaki is a crime against the Political Burea...
