TO END THE WAR. HORRIBLE HUNNISH PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
HORRIBLE HUNNISH PLAN". Albert Dorriugton, an Australian writer now visiting America, writes as follows to the "Freeman's Joar Here is an example of the Prus sian mind, which sees Kothing but military necessity in such deeds as the sinking of tbe Lusitania and the shooting of hospital nurses. Kerr Rudolf Keller, in a pamphlet entit led "War on Civilians," outlines hie idea for bringing peace. It is nothing more or less than a straight proposal to starve the inhabitants of those portions of France and Belgium now in Germany's .hands. " Of course there would be a fcre mendons outcry in the world's press against • German barbarity.- Bu.fc what of that P Our German skias are sufficiently thick to bear the abuse of our enemies. After a tisie England and France would feel that they could not expose several mil lions of Belgians and French to death by starvation, and then they would reluctantly consent to enter into ne gotiations.

THE GILGANDRA WEEKLY Gilgandra, Friday Feb. 4, 1916 SEVEN BROTHERS ENLISTED [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
SEIZE N BROTHERS ENLISTED When the Boomerangs^ arrived at Oowra- on route to Bathurst from Parkes a particularly gratifying re cruiting incident occurred, and one •winch goes to show that the true patriotic spirit is strong -within the hearts of the young taeii-of the out back. Mr Thomas Coe, well remem bered as an old coach driver in the district, has seven stalwart sons, and all.of fchem are now with the Boomer angs. Five of the boj's joined the recruits in Oowra, and the remaining two accompanied the contingent out of town for a couple of miles with the object of bidding them au revoir. Instead of doing so, however, at the last moment the two younger men j decided to join their brothers in the ranks, and did so there and then, continuing on the way instead of re turning to thei'' home. Nineteen men enlisted at Woodstock, and doubtless considerably more w-i]l join the corps prior to its arrival in 33athurst on Saturday. The distance that tlie men will have covered when the long ma...

THE WHEAT HARVEST MR. ASHFORD GRATIFIED. When returning to Sydney from a visit to the Castlereagh electorate, Mr. Ashford, Minister for Lands, said he had the first opportunity of looking,into the Government Statis tician's estimate regarding the wheat harvest. Mr. Ashford said he was very pleased to see that even if the esti mate was considerably reduced the yield would reach the amount he forecasted some months ago. His estimate of a million acres increase in the land under wheat had been I verified He based his calculations I on the amount of seed wheat which the farmers had got from the Go vernment, and which was enough to sow a million acres. Sin addition to that assistance there were the remit tals of rentals that were absolutely necessary owing to the unfortunate drougfit, and the assistance given in cash to 160 settlers who were thus helped until they were able to reap a reward, as they were doing this year with the bountiful harvest. '"That," ho added, "together with the \y...

IRISH SOLDIERS IN THE WAR. HEROIC INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 4 February 1916
IRISH SOLDIERS IK THE WAR, HEROIC INCIDENTS. The "New Statesman''" has a long article in the current issue on the Irish soldier, recalling ,,the Wild Geese, Cremona, Fontenoy,-' and re marking on "the amazing fact that this is the first war in history in which* the Irish soldier has fought as an Irishman on the - same side as England." The article proceeds :— "So far as the present war is con cerned, Irish soldiers are fighting as Irish patriots in a way in which they never fought before. They do nrt echo Sarsfield's cry, 'Oh, that this were for Ireland !' Apparently they take the view that, in defeating the Germans as at Cremona, they actual ly are fighting for Ireland. The chaplain of an Irish regiment,, writ ing after the first battle of Ypres, described a dying soldier whom he attended. His side .was torn with shrapnel, and . he lay in a pool of blood. After being attended to spiritually he raised his hand and exclaimed, 4 My life for old Ireland!' Nor is this an isolated exampl...
