HOUSE OF LORDS BRITAIN'S HEREDITARY LEGISLATORS. AN INTERESTING BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 6 May 1910
HOUSE OF LORDS BRITAIN'S HEREDITARY LEGISLATORS. AN INTERESTING BOOK. A review appears In a "Westminster , Gazette" o£ "The Personal Story of the Upper House," by ICosmo Wilkinson, published by T. Fisher Unwin. The critic says:— It Is a book of pleasant and instruc tive gossip concerning the House o£ Lords, written, as the author puts it, | less in the spirit of a Constitutional • historian than from the point of view most likely to find acceptance with those who read to be interested as well as informed. Certainly there is no lack . of good material for a work conceived on these lines, and if the record be comes more humdrum as the chroniclei | i nears our own day, this must oe re- , Igarded as an unfortunate result of that • progressive respect for the injunctions ; of the Decalogue, which has been wit- ' nessed In the course of time. | Certainly the most amusing pages of this entertaining volume are those re- : latlng to earlier ages than our own, and Mr Wilkinson, It may be adde...

SHAKESPEARE THE MAN. HINTS FOR MR BERNARD SHAW. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 6 May 1910
SHAKESPEARE THE MAM. HINTS FOR MR BERNARD SIIAW. i Mr Bernard Shaw's, assurance that he has. repeatedly surpassed Shakes peare wo provisionally accept as blithely as it is given. But what is perhaps more cheering-, vand perhaps less susceptible of dispute, is Sir Shaw's indirect antl impersonal allir mation of the manilold imperfections of a poet who is, .in spite .of ■ thorn, .probably first among_ the-immortals. The wise uneusi nous oi ' Jien J onson, who wished that,, instead :0f novel blotting "a line, Shakespeare ;had blotted a thousand, has unfortunate ly been lost, in the idolatrous y.oal of the succeeding generations of his worshippers. . . . ■ " • We should lose half -the delightful^ ness of what Mr Shaw ' has said of Shakespeare as: a. rival-; poet- if- we took it altogether seriously, but wo think we may without so much loss allow ourselves to ..be more seriously, if still not quite seriously, interested in what he says of Shakespeare as a fellow citizen. - J.t ; was cert...

IRISH PASSIVE REGISTER. THE "ILLEGIBLE CHARACTERS.'"' 1 An amusing scene was witnessed in Little Green street, Dublin, when Alder man Cole, a prominent member of the Dublin Corporation, and an enthusiastic member of the Gaelic League, played the part of a passive resister in the-, most approved fashion. A fortnight ago the patriotic alder man was summonp.il by the, police for having his name and address painted on his cart in illegible characters, other wise in the Irish language, which, in cidentally, ho cannot speak.
