COMMONWEALTH ELECTIONS SATURDAY OF NEXT WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 28 August 1914
commonwealth elections SATURDAY OF NEXT WEEK. Tha Commonwealth elections will take place on Saturday of next week, September. 5, and every elector is urged to do his or her duty on that day and YOTE, Amongst Liberals it may be thought that there is no very urgent reason for them to vote in this electorate, seeing that the result of the contest for the House of Repre sentatives is almost a foregone con clusion. But it must not be forgotten that there is the Senate to be voted for, and if the Liberals are to win evety available vote in this and every other electorate mnsb be cast. The state of the parties existing during the last Bes-ion of Parliament musb be alien d, and the Labor party is leaving no stone unturned to return their representatives. A Liberal majority in the House of Representatives will avail little unless • it also gains a majority in the Senate, Or at least greatly reduces that held by Labor in. the last Parliament. Each elector should remember that his or tier vote...
AT THE SCHOOLS, [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 28 August 1914
AT THE SCHOOLS, A system of weekly donations has been initiated in the Victorian State sohools with signal success. The sys tem has already taken effect locally, and it is expected that a snbstantial snm will be contributed each week. Apart from the help that a penny a week from each of approximately 250,000 atten ding the sohools will be to the patriotic fnnd, the principle will have a great moral value, in teaching the ohiidren self-sacrifice, for the youngsters could easily be taught how much more noble it is to help those injured by the war than to spend their pennies on sweets.

ARRANGING FOR THE DEMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 28 August 1914
ARRANGING FOR THE DEMONSTRATION. A largely-attended meeting waa held on Monday evening, when arrange ments for the demonstration to be held on September 16 were made. There was a little discnssion as to the advisa bility of holding snob a gathering, some of those present being of the opinion that the present was not a time for jollity. However a majority took the view that any means of raising money shonld be adopted, and it was farther pointed out that by means of such a gathering subscriptions would be received from some from whom nothing would be gained in other ways. Then, too, even those who subscribed liberally would be prepared to pay for a day's amusement. The demonstration will take the same form as those held in past years in aid of the Mooroopna Hospital, and it is more than likely that a number of the goats that took part in the Wangaratta carnival re cently will be made available for the day. A procession will be the first item, and an attractive sports pro gramme will ...

THE EUROPEAN STRUGGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Numurkah Leader — 28 August 1914
THE EUROPEAN STRUGGLE. That Germany has for many years past been preparing for the present titanic struggle there can be no doubt. The populace has been fed on the thought that the day would come when Germany would come into her own ; her soldiers have been imbued with the idea that once the struggle commenced it muBt be continued regardless of con sequenoes of life or money. The war is really one of barbarism versus Chris tianity, for it not only challenges the freedom of nations, but the principle that freedom and love are things to be nourished. On one side are two nations that of all those involved allow their sabjeots the least measure of consti tutional liberty, the owners of property being the only ones given the franchise. On the other side are nations which have freedom of Government, and with the people at liberty to think and act for themselves. It is a fight between oligarchy and democracy. Should Ger many win democracy will have been given its death blow, and for those ...

Mr Teare supported Mr Harper, and Mr Baker made a characteristically modest reply, Auld Lang Syne and the National Anthem were sung, cheers were given, and the function closed.
