COMPULSION VERSUS CONSCIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

COMPULSION VfRSUS CON SCIENCE. Our Sydney correspondent writes: The suggestion that the growing lads of the State, in addition to be being saddled with compulsory military training, shall also be compelled un der penalty to attend the " continuan tion'u schools, has 'drawn' Dr. Snowden, an American visitor. who takes great interest in industrial and secondary education. In the States, he says, reliance is placed on awak ening the popular conscience to the importance of the question. Many ef fective devices, front picture snhow1 to platform speeches, are emnplyed with this .end in view. Compulsion, how ever, is n,.t so much spoken of. \hen outicial advocates of compulsion rea lise that a demand so utterly foreign to the spirit of a free country is, in the nature of the case, an abject con fession of their own incompetence, they will pruo ba ?ly change their tune. To propose to -addle mi re l oys with compulsory ubl,gations which, in many case., must plr.e crushing, whilst ad lilnistr...

LONDON NIGHT CLUBS DRINK AND DANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

LONDON NIGlHT CLUBS DRINKi AND DANCE. There was a time in modern English history when the nlight-bird was with out honor - a rather disreputable crea ture indeed, good enough illn a music ball song, but not nice in a drawing room. Twlo-in-the-morning courage might be all very well (for other people) but two-in-the-morning plea sure was only excusaible at a ball. The institution of the night club is beginning to change all that, writes a member of "The Daily News" staff w'ho is in-touch with West End life. As yet comparatively few people know, but everyone is talking. The night life of London is developing swiftly. Things have happend in the past few months that are going to leave a per n:anent mark on the social habits of the moneyed set, and may add a Gayest City to the gay cities of Europe. NEW IMPRESSIONS. A visit to one of the really smart night clubs that have sprung up re cently in the heart of the WVest End would be a revelation to the man whose ideas of metropolitan gaiety h...

HUMOR OF SERIOUS THINGS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

iUMIOR OF SERIOUS THINiS (13y Alec Johnston in "The Glasgow Weekly Herald.") The w\'or'ld is in da:-';cer of b9lng dlvid-d into the people who re;ard serious things seriously and pc.ple who regard them entirely as a Joke. Mi\lltary training, strikes. :ni;ri;agos, and other necessities of civilisation lha've attained permanent rank as serious, things; and .to treat them ac tively as anything else is to incur the displeasure of society at large - no doubt rightly, from society's point of view. But the difliculty about such matters, fromi the humorist's point of view, is the ridiculous way in which they .give themselves airs. Military training ties itself up in a peculiar brand of red tape, which lends sacru sanctity to its most trivial transac tions. The soldier iust, of course, "always keep his rifle and. himself just so." To this end our Govern ment, be it Liberal or Conservative -another of our serious aind neces sary jokes-spends sc:ne millions a year in equipping our skeleton arm...

MUSIC-HALL TONE ACTION IN LONDON [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

MUS!C=HALL TONE ACTION IN LONDON Once again there was a struggle be fore the London County Council for the Coliseum and Hippodrome drink li censes. and again they were refused (says "The Daily News' of November 29). The recommendations of the Theatres and Music Halls Committee were con sidered by the jcouncil; and Mr T. I. Healy, KIC., for' the Coliseum, asked that the restrictions should apply only to the auditorium. .The Coliseum, he maintained, was in what might be called- the pleasure ground of the metropolis-in clubland. in the district where tile large hotels were. It had no parallel in the world. That part of London had become al most. international in character. There was no allegation that there had been anything like disorder, demoralisation. or misconduct at this hall. M1r Hinde and Mr Blaiklock opposed on behalf of temperance societies. Mr Blaiklock said the success of the Coliseum was due to the Council's wise restriction,. which had created a new public. People who obj...

POLICE AND LAMPS CRESSET TO ELECTRIC TORCH [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 March 1914

POLiCE AND LAMPS CRESSET TO ELECTRIC TORCH The London policeman's "bull's eye" is, according to report, shortly to pass away (says the "Daily Tele graph" of January S). In its stead he is to have an electric torch, which will spread light before and around him, while he-himself remains un seen. At his bidding there will be light, though doubtless, there will be times when, .pressing a button with twentieth century-:. confidence in science, he will;call for light and none will come., But .that modern wizard, the electrician, may. be trusted to see to it that these occasions are rare. "Beloved Peeler" has become so much an institution with -us that we are apt to -forget there was a time when, so far from being thus affec tionately hailed in song, ,he was the target for hearty abuse aind ridicule. For in order that he might come an other :had to ' go, and though the eighteenth . century "Charley" was about as fit,:fo preserve order as a ruined keep:would'be to repel a siege train,. the...

As the purchaser of the Duke of Bedford's Covent Garden estate, he becomes a person of extraordinary in terest. What is he going to do with his purchase? That was one of the questions put to him by a "Daily News" representative last night. W\ould he sell the market to the London County Council? Hoe .replied that, if approached, he would be prepared to treat with the London County Council "as a willing seller and a willing purchaser." "I would rather sell it to a public authority than to a private owners,' he said. "It Is a property, I think. which would be better held-on account of its size and imlportance-by a public authority. But so long as it is in my possession I intend to carry it on in a public-spirited way. Naturally, I do not want to lose by it."
