The Kaiser WILL HINDENBURG SHOOT HIM? NEUTRAL ATTACHE'S VIEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
The Kaiser . WILL HINDENBURG SHOOT HIM? NEUTRAL ATTACHE'S VIEWS. "If there is a revolution in Ger many, it will be led hy Hindenburg." This was the astounding statement made to a representative of the Mon treal "Standard" the other day by a neutral military attache with the Ger man army who has just come from German Headquarters on urgent pri vate business to London for a few days. "What I say is a fact," he con tinued. "If the Hohenzollern dynasty is to be overthrown, Hindenburg is the man who will overthrow it, and before the war is over you may see von Hindenburg the first President of the United German States Republic." I expressed my anxiety to hear his reasons for this astonishing forecast of events. Ripe for Revolt. "Well," explained the attache, "you see, Germany is ripening for a revolu tion. That you have heard; but Ger many is riper for a revolt than many people imagine. It is.not merely. that the mass of the people are suffering greatly, and are growing daily more discon...
Our Coalfield. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
Our Coalfield. By "The Pilgrim." The old Powlett district is still full of interest and some sad memories. Travelling to Wonthaggi by train, one sees the first of the coal country at Kilcunda and, a little the other side of it; the old embankment' where ,nany years ago the coal tramway ran. Kilcunda had two coal mines of its own-one in which the late Mr:. David Mitchell was interested and tihe other run by a co-operative com iany. They produ, d good coal, but broken, and not enough of it. The iirst still lives; the other is dead. The terminal statio: is Wonthaggi, a wonderful new town in a very old district, with suburbs, or subsidiary towns, scattered over miles of coun try. This has a most curious effect, much of the ground between the sub urbs and the town being vacant, and the explanation is equally curious. The town area was at first reserved by the Government from sale, and first-comers, refusing to take lease holds, 'bought the nearest freehold !rnd. Hence the existence of No...
THE REAL ANZAC. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
THE REAL ANZAC. There are plenty of slouch-hatted soldiers in town, Doughty and debonair, stalwart, and brown; Some are from Weymouth, or Salis bury Plain, Others have "pushed" in the Western campaign. Call them "Overseas Soldiers" or "Down-Under Men," Declare that each one is as daring as ten, Call them "Cornstalks" or "Fern leaves," all out for a fight But don't call them "Anzacs," for that isn't right. The Anzacs-their ranks are but scanty, all told-. Have a separate record, illumined in gold; *Their blood on Gallipoli's ridges they poured, Their souls with the scars of that struggle are scored Not many are left, and not many are sound, And thousands lie buried in Turkish ground; These are the Anzacs - the others may claim Their zeal and their spirit, but never their name. --London "Punch." There was trouble in a northern municipality one .day lately.. Candi dates were preparing for the annual election, and one worthy aspirant. was: particularly desirous of addressing the ratepay...

OPEN COLUMN. TRAMS V. TRAINS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
OPEN COLUMN. TRAMS V. TRAINS. To the Editor. Sir,-According to a statement by Mr. E. Jones, a commissioner, the loss of revenue to the Railway De partment caused by the Swan-st. tram between Richmond and Melbourne is from £8000 to £10,000 a month. Is Mr. Jones in any way surprised? I venture to say he is not. The fare, first-class, from Richmond station to Flinders-street, is 3d. single, 4½d. re turn; second-class, 2d. single, 3d. re turn. The distance is one mile. With out a doubt it is the most expensive mile ride on the Victorian railways. Take my own case. It is my practice to accompany my wife to the city three times a week. Formerly we used the train. My wife, very natur ally, would not like Mrs. Busibody to see her in a second-class carriage, and I, being a dutiful husband, re spect her feelings. I always pur chase first-class tickets. The three return trips by train cost me 2/3 a week. Now we travel tram, make the same nurberiof trips, the cost is 1/ a week-and all trams are...

Star Film at Free Recruiting Rally in Cinema Next Sunday Night-Two Hundred and Twenty-three More Men Enlisted from Richmond in First Four Months of This Year. The Richmond District Recruiting Committee's executive is arranging a picture demonstration in the Cinema, Bridge-road, on Sunday, May 20, at 8 p.m. The film will depict the life of a soldier of the A.I.F. in camp.

The experience is the reverse. From January 1, 1917, to April 30, 1917, 118 Richmond men volunteered and 89 were accepted. The percen tage passed was 75.423; enlisted else where for Richmond, 134; total 223. The Richmond Recruiting Commit tee at its next meeting will consider the request of the State Recruiting Committee asking for co-operation in the disposal of war certificates.

An Innocent Adventuress. Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER III. "Find the Woman." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
4n Innocent Adventuress.' By CHARLES PROCTOR. Author of "The Dice of God," "What Shall It Profit a Man?" "At Dead of Night," etc., etc. Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER III. "Find the Woman." Hector Hampden felt as if he were living a nightmare as he stood star ing with dilated eyes at the body at his feet. There could be no doubt that Jenkins was dead. The ghastly, greyish-white face, the glassy eyes, and, above all, the bluish hole in the centre of the forehead and the dark nool of blood on the carpet, spoke eloquently, if silently, of death-of death that had come swiftly, instan taneously-from murder. "Murdered!" breathed Hector, moistening his dry, still lips and shuddering involuntarily as he said the ugly word. "Murdered," he re peated dully, still staring as if fas cinated at the ghastly face of the dead man. A clock on the mantelshelf chimed one, and the sound made him start. He jerked himself upright, shaking off the inertia of horror that had gripped ...

NATURE'S GENTLEMAN. Home is Happy When He's There. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
NATURE'S GENTLEMAN. Home is Happy When He's There. I wonder why's the reason? Yet too often it's a fact, Our manners when in company are best. At home we speak in churlish tones, unkind and selfish act; But pander to the stranger and the guest. We make ourselves unpleasant to the Sones we ought to cheer; In private life 'tis self we think of most: Yet in the social round we fetch and carry here and there; We smile and act the cheerful, cor flial host. I wonder why'.we: do it? Surely, if we only knew , The isorrow and the anguish that we cause By angrf-iWords and unkind acts to thosd':2nvbhd love us true, ' We'd ponder ere we uttered them and pause? Let's make-a point with courtesy to treat the folk at home; To those who love us give our very best:. We'll surely gain in' manhood and dispel" a heap of gloom By treating each one as an honor ed guest. 'Tis little things: that count so much that sniooth or mar the way O' those who're joined for better or for worse. And !ittler habits, go...

The matter was referred to the building committee for report, with a view to ascertaining if it would be advisable to include such provisions in the re gu!ations. HIawthorn Council have a grudge. They object to "spruikers" outside picture shows. They are nuisances, menaces, pests-what you will. The I-Hawthorn Council asked Richmond Council's opinion on the matter.

WOULDN'T BE HANGED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 12 May 1917
WOULDN'T BE HANGED. Mir; A. E. P. Weigall, who has spent many years in Egypt, tells an amus ing story of some natfive officials. A well-known' robber was arrested at. a small station ~in the Sudan, and was prbmptly sentenced to death. The solitary. 'English officer in charge of the post refrained from attending the execution, the arrangements for which 'were left to the discretion of his Egyptian colleagues. A gibbet was erected, and about nine o'clock on the next morning the condemned man was driven up to it in a mule cart. The rope was.passed around his neck, the hiule was whipped up, and the yvic ±tI ism ; left swinging in mid-air. The officer, however, had forgotten to tie the mnian's hands, and he promptly swarmed up the rope' to the cross :beam, there seating himself comfort ably in the piping-hot sunshine, while the troops stoodl' gaping around him, the officer mopping his" forehead in an ecstasy of heat anid"vexation. No one knew 'wht to do.: They could not shoot the'man, fo...
