YOUNG [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
YOUNG FELLOW MY LAD. "Where are you going, Young Fellow My Lad, On this glittering morn of May?" "I'm going to join the colors, dad; They're looking for men, they say." "But you're only a boy, Young Fellow My Lad; You aren't obliged to go." "I'm seventeen and a quarter, dad, And ever so strong, you know." "So you're off to France, Young Fel low My Lad? And you're looking fresh and bright." "I'm terribly sorry to leave you, dad, But I feel that I'm doing right." "God bless you and keep you Young' Fellow My Lad, You're all my life, you know." "Don't worry, I'll soon be back, dear dad, And I'm awfully proud to go." "Why don't you write, Young Fellow My Lad? I watch for the post each day; And I miss you so, and I'm audly sad, And it's months since you went, away.. And I've had the- fire in the parlor lit, And I'm keeping it burning bright Till my boy comes home, and here I sit Into the quiet night. "What is the matter, Young Fellow My Lad? No letter again to-day. Why did the postman loo...
Interest Keen for Positions in Richmond A.N.A.—Debating Party Wins Argument on Drink Traffic. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Interest Keen for Positions in Rich mond A.N.A.--Debating Party Wins Argument on Drink Traffic. The Richmond Branch A.N.A. met at the U.A. Hall, Church-street, on Thursday evening, May 10. Mr. E. Turner (president) occupied the chair. It was decided to donate £1 1/- to the Talbot Colony for Epilep tics. Mr. W. May, in giving a report of the R.U.F.S. Dispensary, dwelt on the possibility of a dearth of medi cine bottles in the near future. It was decided to notify, members on the quarterly summons of the urgent necessity of returning all bottles sup plied by the dispensary. It was also suggested, providing coupons are sup plied by the dispensary, that a "bottle night" should be arranged. Mr. J. WV. Finch reported that a debate against the "Four T's" Debating Club on the question, "Should the Drink Traffic be Nationalised?" resulted in a win for the A.N.A., who affirmed, by one point. Messrs. Higgs and Jeffers, of the Free Trade and Land Values League, were present. IMr. Jeffers was ch...
COMPENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
COMPENSATION. Out of the hurt may be born a smile; Out of the blow a kiss. Somewhere the sun shines all* the while, Could we remember this! Out of my tears may a rainbow shine; Out of the struggle rest. Somewhere God's hand reacheth down for mine, Giving me what is best. Out of the depths fair pearls are. brought; Out of despair hope springs; Somewhere the evil to good is wrought Deep 'mid eternal things. Out of the darkness cometh light, Out of the tomb new life. Somewhere I know it will be right Victory after strife. -R. W. Emerson. A brewery's profits for the last half year amounted to £23,253. Which once again shows that there is more money in selling beer than in drink ing it. A man who walked away from a Sydney bank with £700 of stolen money has been declared insane. Pos sibly the insanity consisted -of get ting caught. The other night at the J.C.W. panto. I saw a little man toiling upstairs to the gallery carrying an immens? book, which on investigation I found to be the Fami...

ONE OF THESE DAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
ONiE OF THESE DAYS. Prude and all as you are, my damsel, Prim and pretty, and all precise, One of these days the fires of passion, 1 Breaking their. crust, will melt your ice.

Why the Lady Wept—A Swan Street Tram Incident. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Why the Lady Wept-A Swan Street Tram Incident. It was between Punt-road and the Amateur Sports Grounds that Billy Higginbotham let the tram out at full speed. The lady with the fur boa and the bird of paradise plume gave evi dence of acute distress. In. answer to frantic appeals, the conductor, Dave Good, bent towards her a sympathetic ear. "Make him go slower," she gasp ed. "Make him go slower!" and then she wept into a cobwebby handker chief. The conductor suggested that people with weak hearts should not ride in trams. "I haven't a weak heart," came from the handkerchief. "My little dog Wopsy was running" alongside and now he can't keep up any more."
Black Eyes and Bleeding Lips Worn as Trophies of Tramway Encounter—Man refuses to Pay Extra Penny and War Breaks Out in Car. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Black Eyes and Bleeding Lips Worn as Trophies of Tramway Encounter -Man refuses to Pay Extra Penny and War Breaks Out in Car. Trouble continues to crop up over the minimum fare system adopted by the Hawthorn Tramway Trust on some cars between Melbourne and Hawthorn in the busy hours of the evening. The idea of the Trust in fix ing minimum charges was to provide better facilities for passengers wish ing to ride more than the first and second sections. It was hoped by it to ensure a more even distribution of passengers for the different route cars. Passengers for Richmond only were not expected to ride on minimum charge cars, the aim being to reserve them for passengers beyond Haw thorn. A similar practice has worked well in Sydney and Adelaide. Here, however, the reverse is the case. Pas sengers for Richmond only continue to disregard the oral warnings of offi cials and the sign-boards displayed on the cars. It is probable that in many cases both warnings are unnoticed. The trouble b...
Notes from the Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Notes from the Churches. A memorial service in connection with the deaths of the late Miss E. Bracher and the late Mr. Alfred Rowe,: two old residents of Richmond, was held at the Congregational Church, Lennox-street, on Sunday. The favor ite hymns of the deceased were chosen. The size of the congregation. bore testimony to the esteem and re spect in which the deceased were held. "Across the Bar" was rendered by the choir, and during the offertory the solo, "O, Rest in the Lord," was sung. The Rev. F. P. Joseland made feeling reference to the lives of the deceased, and stated that both of them had been connected with the ,church and Sunday school since in fancy. Ther services would be sadly missed by all members of the church. At the close of the service the "Dead March in Saul" was played by the organist. A meeting of the Church of Eng land Men's Society (St. Matthias' Branch) was held on Wednesday evening. Accounts for badges and certificates for new members were passed. It was ag...
Ladies' Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Ladies' Letter. The job of finding a suitable wife for the Prince of Wales (he will be 23 in Jane) is keeping a good many gos sipers .busy with their fountain pens just now. Mr. St. John G. Ervine, writing in the "Sunday Chronicle," asks the pertinent question, with which no doubt Prince Eddy himself will strongly sympathise: "Why should the Prince of Wales' range of choice be restricted to ladies of Royal birth? Why should he not be at lib erty, if he so chooses, to marry an English lady of noble family?" The theory that a Royal Prince can only marry a Royal Princess is, so far as England is concerned, a modern one, introduced by the German Georges in the eighteenth century. It is, indeed, essentially a German doctrine, this belief that a Royal personage must only marry a Royal personage, and a natural corollary of the faith so fre quently proclaimed by the Kaiser that he rules by Divine right. The pitiable and really dangerous consequence arising from royal inbreeding may be seen ...
Newspaper Famine. SCARCITY ALL OVER THE WORLD. EIGHT HUNDRED AMERICAN PAPERS STOP. INCREASED PRICES HERE CERTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Newspaper Famine. SCARCITY ALL OVER THE WORLD. EIGHT HUNDRED AMERICAN t PAPERS STOP. INCREASED PRICES HERE t CERTAIN. l No fewer than 800 newspapers in ( the United States have been forced to suspend publication owing to the .&lt; tremendous advance in the cost of paper. Conditions and circumstances, it i can readily be understood, are far more adverse to Australian news paper proprietors than they are in America. Save for a very small portion, used principally for station ery, the whole of the paper supply for the Commonwealth comes from over seas. Formerly, a good deal of news and art paper was imported from Germany. This source was, of course, cut off at the very beginning of the war. Reliance was then placed on supplies from Sweden, Norway and America. The hostile submarine cam paign has had the effect of diminish ing to the point of almost absolute extinction any paper or pulp ex ports from either Sweden or Nor way, and, as a consequence, the sole remaining source of su...
Plain English. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Plainr English. Podborough's populace, iz an odor of oranges and sawdust, was being s.irred to the depths by. a travelling zheatrical company in "t'e great Lon l0fi success "'Ravensmoor." On the stage the white-haired Lord Ravensmoor, with many murders to his credit, lay a-dying. "This is the end," he gasped. "I die wealthy, but hated; opulent but without a friend. What news, caitiff?" as a scared face appeared at ,the wings. "'My lord," the intruder gasped. "Lurid flames emerge from the cab riolet in the .court-yard. Disaster is upon us." "I fear me, knave," returned the dying-: man, "thou hast been over free -\ith the malmsey. Disturb iobt my.last moments by trifling ne-s, but speaktplaiiln should occasion demniand it. . Prithee, what .is't?" "The cabriolet in the court-yard hath ignited, my lord." "Tuish! Tush! I understand thee not, varlet."

Submarines and Shipping VALUABLE COPPER CARGOES LOST. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Submarines and Shipping VALUABLE COPPER CARGOES LOST. The "Engineering and Mining Jour nal" states that between the begin ning of December and the middle of March submarine attacks upon ship ping in the Atlantic, outward bound from the United States, had resulted in the sinking of as much as 27,670 tons of copper intended for use main ly by France, but in part also by Italy and Hussia. The market value of this would be approximately between £3,750,000 and £4,000,000.
When the War is Over. INDUSTRIES LIKELY TO PROSPER [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
When the War is Over: INDUSTRIES LIKELY TO PROSPER We are living in a rapidly changing world. Some industries may be ruin ed: others flourish exceedingly. It is not at all unlikely that we shall have 1 system of preferential tariffs, which might make the fortune of one branch of an industry, while seriously hand' -apoing another. Allowing for all these factors, we think that during the next few years, such industries as jron and steel, machinery makers, riculttilral implement makers, ship-. building, companies owning tramp steamers and rubber-producing com panies will do very well.
Wooden Ships. AMERICA'S EXAMPLE. CHANCES OF AUSTRALIA. SCARCITY OF SOFT WOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Wooden Ships. ij AMERICA'S EXAMPLE. CHANCES OF AUSTRALIA. SSCARCITY OF SOFT WOODS. A short time ago the news came through that the armed merchant fleet was being augmented by the building of wooden ships. It was stated:that seven vessels had al ready been launched, 10 more were being built, and others were under charter. The fleet was to consist of vessels of 3000 tons carrying capac ity, equipped with steam power, and were to be used for carrying timber from Canadian ports, and return car goes of coal from Newcastle and sugar from Fiji. It seemed strange to those outside the shipbuilding industry that such an opportunity should be missed by Australian shipwrights, whose work manship can stand with credit beside that of oversea builders. Inquiry proves that war conditions are re sponsible: for the sudden call for wooden ships-those of iron being no longer cheaply available-and that war conditions are also largely re sponsible for the . contention that Australia Cannot compete at pre...
Bunty in England. REMARKABLE RISE OF A YOUNG CANADIAN. PULLS THE STRINGS IN HIGHEST CIRCLES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Bunty in England. REMARKABLE RISE OF A YOUNG[ CANADIAN. PULLS THE STRINGS IN HIGHEST CIRCLES. There is much comment in Eng land about the extraordinary rise of one of the new peers, Lord Beaver brook, hitherto known as Sir Max Aitken, M.P. : People ask how it is that an unknown -. Canadian, barely over 30 years of age, can come to London and in half a dozen. years achieve a powver a'nd position gener ally withheld from most politicians after a lifetime of endeavor? Yet here is the new Lord Beaverbrook doing all the things which ambitious young men yearn to be able to do but seldom succeed in doing. He, it is said, made the Coalition possible; he, it is asserted, made it impossible. To him Mr. Bonar Law is said to ascribe his leadership of the Unionist Party;. and to him go men of all ranks and positions for guidance, en couraged thereto, perhaps, by the story that Lord Beaverbrook is as firm a friend as he is constant to hifs enemies (of whom. he -has the suc cessful man's fair shar...
Australia's Heritage. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Australia's Heritage. By Andrew Fisher (High Commis sioner for the Commonwealth). - Paper read at last meeting of the .Royal Colonial Institute, A. D. Steel MIaitland, M.P. '(Under Secretary of State for the Colonies), in the chair. The rapid evolution of the MDo0in ion nations of the British Empire within, the past score of historic-years has been demonstrated to the world by two . outward ,signs. There his. been developed in each..country :a distinct nationality-varied in type, though commonly rooted at the base to the old race-stock of the island kingdom. And each of the self-gov erning democracies has adopted for its title an ari-esting England word: Dominion, Union, Commonwealth. They are words that are already im pressed deeply uponthe minds of the people of Britain. It is of one of these .modern democracies - the Commonwealth of Australia-that it is my privilege to speak. The Australian, the Canadian, the New Zealander, as I have known him, lays no claim to be called a "Col o...
East and West. THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
East and West. THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY. The Kalgoorlie-Port Augusta line will be about 1,051 miles long. So far 946 miles have been constructed, and if the rails come to hand on schedule time (there has been a somewhat serious delay) the gap should be bridged by the end of August. But only about a third of the length al ready laid is ballasted. To be com pleted, the ballasting will take about two years, but in the meantime the Engineer-in-Chief proposes to run the trip at 30 miles an hour, working up eventually to 40 miles an hour. At first it is proposed to run two trains a week from Kalgoorlie to Port Augus "ta and' two from Port Augusta to Kal goorlie. Each train will consist of two second-class sleeping carriages, two first-class sleepers, one dining car, one first-class day car, one bulk mail-van, and one brake-van. A con ference of railway officers will be held in Melbourne shortly to discuss such questions as fares and connect ing trains. If a suitable time-table can be ...
Chemical Industry in Switzerland. SYNTHETIC DYES AND PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 19 May 1917
Chemical Industry in Switzerland. ;SYNTHETIC DYES AND PHARMA . CEUTICAL PRODUCTS. w:.Switzerland :is one of those cua.-::: tries which, although covered by a vast area of mountainous terrain, is exceptionally poor in all kinds of mineral resources. The main raw materials, coal and iron, are practic ally lacking and necessitate their im portation from the surrounding na tions. Water power is, however, available and is being developed to its fullest capacity. The war has to a great extent thrown this small country on its own resources as far as power for industrial purposes is concerned, but at the best this power source is insufficient to supply the 107 chemical plants at present in operation. The bulk of the coal, therefore, is at present obtained from Germany. Previous to the war coal was also imported from France. Practically all the chemical engi neers of the country are trained at-:- the polytechnicum of Zurich and the University of Zurich, both being in dependent of one another...
