SHORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINISH THEM. [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 March 1914

SlORT SENTENCES BILL TO DIMINIS?H THEM. Speaking last night at the annual dinner of the County of London Ma gistrates' Club (says "T'he Daily News' of December 5). Mr M'Kenna said that in the coming Session of Par liament he hoped to carry through a measure which would have nothing controversial about it. He expected that the Administration of Justice Bill would meet not merely with the approval of both recognised par* ties, but even with the approval of the recognised cranks. (Laughter). They hoped by an amendment of the admin istration of justice to reduce the num ber of prisoners. "We hope," he contiffued, "to get rid of many of the short sentences. Short sentences should be avoided. They do nobody any good. They are very ex pensive to the State, they are per fectly useless to the victim of them, and they don't protect society." A hardened and determined criminal must get a long sentence, and the dis cipline and the conditions of work which he would learn-useful work would enable...

PSYCHIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 March 1914

PSYCiIC SENSE MAGIC IN BUSINESS Is the psychic sense more developE in Americans than in Englishmen? The question is raised by the follo ing interesting letter by M.B.G. (Ham stead) to the editor of "The Express": I have seen Mr G. K. Chestert?ao play "Magic," and I am bound to adn mit that it interested and amrused i" as much as anything I have seen ?o? years. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of that, I have a strong objection to rmiJ The play deals with a professional cO~. jurer who, in addition to his trade, well developed on the psychic side, and able to make a modest use of black magic. Of course, the conjurer is if love with a lady. The fly in the oint. ment is the lady's brother, who repre. sents all that is crass, cheeky, ig0r. ant and bumptious, and is likewise vul. garly sacrilegious. Here is where my objection comes in. The brother is an English boy, and the reason he is so ignorant and so im. pervious in regard to spiritual matter5 is said to be that he has been Iving som...

AFRICAN KING DEAD [Newspaper Article] — Port Fairy Gazette — 5 March 1914

AFRICAN KING DEAD it may be assumed with some confi dence that the persistent- rumors of Menelek's death which have been cir culated periodically since his paralytlc seizure in 1908 are,- on this occasion,. well founded, says "The Times." The extent of the change in Abyssinian and North-East African politics involved by his death cannot yet be appraised. Menelek has been dead to the outer world and possibly even to Abyssinia. for some years. His stripling grand son and heir, Lidj Yasou, is little known, and has still to prove his. ability to cope with the peculiar prob lems of Abyssinian statecraft. During Menelek's reign of 20 years- the extremely primitive civilisation of Abyssinia has been overlaid with a Western veneer, though it has not lost its original characteristics. The coun try has telegraphs and telephones, and a railway, which stops short at a point near-Harrar. It has a limited but in creasing trade in which India shares. The main industries of Abyssinia are, however, ...

PUNISHED, BY KAISER ------------ MILITARY DESPOTS LOSE POSTS The Kaiser to-day had a long con -ference at Donaueschingen with the Minister of War and the chief of his military cabinet, at which it is stated (says the Berlin correspondent of "The Daily Express," December 2\ that the Emperor did some extremely plain talking about the events at Zabern, in Alsace, where the popu lation is in revolt against the ex cesses of the Prussian garrison. The trouble began, as has been told in "The Express," with an offer by Lieutenant von Foerstner, of the 99th Regiment, of 10/ for every "Alsatian vagabond" bayoneted by a sentry. This was resented by the peo ple of Zabern, and a series of inci dents followed, culminating on Fri day last in an outbreak by the mili tary and the arrest of twenty-six citi zens. Complaints of brutal treatment by the soldiers were made by the pri soners, many of whom were citizens of standing. A number of German newspapers to-night state that the Kaiser has ordered dr...

The obliga tions of 'marriage, what marriage meant, had thrust themselves upon her. She was- tempted suddenly to fling open the door, throw herself. out and let the traffic crush out her life. But the wild impulse vwas caught up. an instant later by a-. realisation of its selfishness; the misery and grief, and, possibly death, such- an act would in flict on others. She must go through with it somehow. "It's a bit early to begin showing off, isn't it?" The_ words: had been stung out of IThorne. "Don't touch me!'
