ADDRESS BY MR BALFOUR. TEARING OLD WOUNDS OPEN. "NEARING THE RAPIDS." LONDON, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914
ADDRESS BY MR BALFOUR. TEARING OLD WOUNDS OPEN. " NEARING THE RAPIDS." LONDON, Thursday. In addressing a Unionist meeting in the city yesterday, Mr Balfour said the Home Rule Bill, which professed to be a complete healing process for Ireland, : had torn ancient wounds open.. Ho warned the ,Government, while the plans are still malleable, not to com mit themselves to the fatal mistake of providing for a half measure-Home Rule within Home Rule. Mr Balfour,. continuing, said :-"It is the fixed desire- of Ulster not to paralyse the Parliament in Dublin;, but to be in the British Parliament on equal terms with us. We are now in the rapids; even to the dullest ear the murmur of the distant cataract is audible. Unless the Government made a clean cut they will find them selves in the remorseless current, and the ship of State will be dashed into irremediable disaster."

OLD AGE PENSIONER. FOUND DEAD IN HUT. Yesterday afternoon it was reported to the Ararat police that an old age pensioner named Charles Hodges, liv- ing in a hut on Picnic road, was be- lieved to be dead in his hut. A neigh bor, not seeing the old fellow about for a few days, went to the hut to see if there was anything wrong. Looking through a crack Hodges was observed lying down, and as he looked as though he were dead, the police were communicated with, and Constable &nbsp; M'Innes was despatched to the place. He found the old fellow lying down quite dead, and it was apparent that death had taken place at least a day previous.

It is believed that he had a slight sunstroke last Sunday. An inquest will be held to-day, and it is also probable that a post mortem will be made on the body.
