TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Tired After Long Walk, Councillor Would Say "Yes"—Tramp of Improvement Committee Over West Ward Streets. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Tired After Long Walk, Councillor Would Say "Yes"-Tramp of Im provement Committee Over West Ward Streets. Galvanised by the energy of Cr. J. Hugh Robinson, the hew West Ward representative, Richmond City Coun cil is showing definite signs of a re cognition of the necessity of putting the streets and pathways in some sort of order. Since the day Cr. Robinson was elected a councillor, without op position, he has continued to hammer out, before councillors, the policy he' promised the ratepayers. The fact that there has been a startling in crease in the number of cases of in fectious disease reported in Richmond has also carried weight with the council. A report was called for set ting out the number of cases in each or any street, and with a view to examining if their origin could be at tributable to defective drainage, rights-of-way or streets in disorder, etc., the city improvement committee was deputed to make a tour of the various wards. Cr. Robinson had pre pa...
HOW DARCY DIED. INEXPRESSIBLY SAD END. HIS REMARKABLE CAREER AND RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
HOW DARCY DIED. / INEXPRESSIBLY SAD END. HIS REMARKABLE CAREER AND RECORD. By W. F. Corbett. :Les, Darcy is dead! Only a few short months ago he was the idol of Australia. And when he left us and it became known that he had taken the first steps toward becoming one of another nation, excuses for him were plentiful, though he was roundly condemned in some places. Last Wrednesday week I published a letter which Mr. R. L. Baker had received from the Australian boxing wonder, apparently ostracised from his own country. The writing was that of a penitent, and it was so brimful of con trition and earnest desire to make all reparation possible that only a heart of stone could have been deaf to the boy's appeal. I strongly recommend ed it to the consideration of the re sponsible authorities, and urged that whatever offence against the laws of the land which might have been com mitted by him should, and could well be, in the circumstances, overlooked. I found a good supporter in Mr. Baker. A...

OPEN COLUMN. STATE OF RICHMOND STREETS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
OPEN COLUMN. STATE OF RICHMOND STREETS. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I notice that in reply to a let ter from the Richmond P.L.C. re the disgraceful condition of the Richmond streets that the council states the criticism is uncalled for, owing to the poorness of their funds. I under stand that Cr. Bell spoke at length in the council and declared that he was tired of the continued remarks to councillors by outsiders; that the as phalt gangs, drays, etc., had increased 100 per cent. or thereabouts since his advent to the council; that Church street and Bridge-road are a credit to any municipality; that we complain ers expect everything in a day; and that in four or five years our streets will be as good as any other suburb that has not the shifting nature of the soil. I readily believe that we have a "shifting" soil, for it is being shifted off the paddocks to the surface of the roads, to act as blinding, and in wet weather it is being "shifted" off the roads to the interior of the houses as...
How the Mouse Plague Began NEW FAMILIES EVERY EIGHT WEEKS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
How the Mouse Plague Began NEW FAMILIES EVERY EIGHT WEEKS. Mouse multitudes originate always in grain accumulations that have been left long undisturbed, writes "Monta lex" in the "Bulletin." About every eighth week sees a new mouse-family of six to 10, and these, in about an bther eight weeks, start reproducing in turn; so that, with constant food, shelter and safety, the figure soon runs into millions. The strangest fact about these mouse-visitations is that the plague sometimes totally disap. :.aars in one night. Many years ago, in north-western Victoria, a district that had foi weeks been swarming with the vermin found itself one morning without sign of a mouse, ex cept the hosts of slain.' Fantastic ex planations of this phenomenon are legion, but no reasonable theory has yet been advanced. Her husband had just come home and had his first meeting with the new nurse, who was remarkably pretty. "She is sensible and scientific, too," urged the fond mother, "and says she will allow...
The Beast Bared WARNING TO AMERICA. THE DEFILING PRUSSIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
'The Beast Bared WARNING TO AMERICA. THE DEFILING PRUSSIAN. As *though it happened yesterday, instead of thirty months ago, I can recreate in my mind the physical and the mental stage 'settings of that moment (writes Irvin Cobb, in the "Saturday Evening . Post"). I can shut my eyes and see the German firing squad shooting two Belgian civilians against a brick wall. I can smell the odors of the burning houses. Yes, and the smell of the. burning flesh of the dead men who were in those houses.. I can hear the sound. of the footsteps of .the fleeing vil lagers and the rumble of the tread of the invaders going by so count lessly, so confidently, so triumphant ly, so .magnificently diciplined and so faultlessly equipped. 'Most of all, I can see the eyes and. ithe faces of sundry German officers with whom I spoke: And when I do this I see their eyes. shining with joy, and their faces transfigured as though by a splendid vision; and i can hear them-not proclaiming, the justice of their caus...
Notes from the Churches. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Notes from the Churches. A busy bee was to be formed to cut the hedge of the Richmond Bap tist Church, but thanks to Mr. E. Mason and Ar. L. Woodhead, who de voted last Saturday to the work, it will not now be necessary. The Endeavor Society at Rich mond Baptist Church held its quar terly social on Tuesday night. A short programme was carried out, those assisting being Misses Ivy Brindly, L. Strahan, L. Thomas, New man and James, Rev. Thomas and Mr. R.. Fraser. The book competition was very interesting, and Miss R. Brindly received the prize, for the most cor rect answers. Supper was served, and a pleasant evening closed with "Auld Lang Syne." The Lennox-street Congregational Church will hold a special service on Sunday evening at 7 o'clock, in me mory of Lieutenant Frank iM. Mc Cutchan and of others connected with the church and Sunday-school, who have fallen in. the sacred cause of liberty. Special hymns and anthems will be sung,
Sterilised Kisses CHICAGO DOCTOR'S IDEA. LIP MASKS OF GAUZE. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Sterilised Kisses CHICAGO DOCTOR'S IDEA. I?P- MASKS OF GAUZE. In. the San Francisco "Chronicle" ofE March' 27 there appeared a notice to the effect that Dr. W. O. Nanes, chairman of the 'City Council Com .mittee.on Health, :had been. giving'ad vice :t .Chicagoans. "Ifa: kiss is necessary, kiss through sterilsed gauze,", said the doctor, and follgped. up with the, suggestion that qliicago should' stop its kissing alto. gether. or a time as a preventive against streptococcic sore throat, a few (ases of which had recently made their appearance in the city. Being interested in the. novelty of the -suggestion the writer interview ed a .maiden aunt who is well past the age of indiscretion. She agreed with Chicago's doctor entirely, giving him a. metaphorical pat .on the back, and saying that kissing.should be pro hibited by law, purely on the ground of its baneful germicidal tendencies. Then- she qualified the suggestion of prohibition :with the statement that of. cqurse in the matter of ...
The Mice Plague EXTRAORDINARY STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
The Mice Plague EXTRAORDfNARY STORIES. The mice in the wheat country are displaying a strange partiality for a certain class of bone-like buttons on clothing. The buttons are so hard that a hammer -would be required to break them, but the gnawing pests eat them:holus bolus. I heard of the case of a man who had all the buttons e.ten off his trousers. At Barmedman (N.S.W.), a black smith found his forge bellows occu pied by several hundred mice, who had crawled in through the nozzle. He blew some out, and the rest he had to poke out with a wire. SA..man who had wax matches in his trousers' pocket dozed off, and awoke to find his clothing on fire. The mice gnawed the veste.s and caused a fire, which severely b'-rned him. It is said that the plague is the cause of many fires throughout the country, and th.ere is a strong agita icn gr-owing a.gainst permitting wax matches to be used in the .country, at all. The mice are ea.ting candles, 'and tablecloths lcaft out on which any thing savor...
No More Daylight Saving MR. HUGHES WILL REPEAL ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
No More Daylight Saving MR. HUGHES WILL REPEAL ACT. We are to have no more Daylight Saving. The intention was good,, the idea seemd excellent; and at the out set many shrewd citizens favored the innovation. Buit it didn't work. Our conditions differ widely from the in sular English. The effect was to pro duce great hardship in the case of many worthy people, with no compen sating profit at all. And now Mr. Hughes is going to repeal thd Act. Daylight Saving has ended. I. - ' *

The Bright Outlook BLATCHFORD OPTIMISTIC. "ALLIES WINNING HANDS DOWN." HEARTENING US AGAINST HUN THREATS. THE "HONOR" OF AN EMPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
The Bright Outlook BLATCHFORD OPTIMISTIC. "ALLIES WINNING HANDS DOWN." HEARTENING US AGAINST HUN THREATS. THE "HONOR" OF AN EMPRESS. The following striking article by Robert Blatchford, editor of. "The Clarion," and British Socialist leader, appeared in "The Daily Chronicle":- I cannot set .out to write upon the present position and future prospects of the Allies in this terrible war without feeling a strong desire to delegate the task to one of those scornful critics who believe that a journalist lolls in, an easy-chair and "scribbles" about'- the world tragedy with a light heart. Any writer who, with insufficient data, with the painful remembrance of past' surprises and with the em barrassment- of a cloud of uncertain ties and suspicions, could face the knotty ploblems of the hour without a sense of deep . responsibility and kecn anxiety would be a mere con ceited fool. One has only to call to mind the early French reverses in Alsace, .the tragedy of the Dardanelles, the black and...
Fire that Would Not Die [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Fire that "Would Not Die A fire at Geelong has established a record for duration. On Easter Mon day night the Victorian Forage Press ing Co.'s stores in Corio-street, con taining 1000 tons of compressed fod der, chaff and grain, were destroyed by fire. The mass burned for a week. Three weeks ago a start was made to clear away the debris. Heavy rain fell, however, and delayed the clear ing operations. As soon as the rain ceased, the mass burst into flames, and although weeks had elapsed since the first outbreak, the fire burned fiercely. -, Germans want to remove all English words from their vocabulary. For all that, the latter end of Pots dam must be pronounced in plain English.
St. Stephen's Harriers in the Mud.—Billy Brown First in Teams' Race. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
St. Stephen's Harriers in the Mud. Billy Brown First in Teams' Race. Eighteen members visited Heidel berg on Saturday and found the "go ing" rather muddy in places. Led -by T. Thornton, .with:E. Gilbert as whip, the slow pack took things leisurely, and were caught by the "fasts," with T. Elkington in the van, after three miles had been covered. In addition to the individual run home of half-a mile, members were divided into teams of four, the first team to finish all its members winning. The innovation proved a success, and resulted .in a win for the quartette D. Bell, G., Baker, T. Thornton and G. E. Lang ford, who kept well together, finish ing fourth, fifth, seventh and eighth. F. W. Page's team," who obtained second, third, eleventh and fourteenth positions, was. second, and R. Holt's team third. The first three runners to finish were W. H. Brown, F. W. Page and T. Elkington. This afternoon the first of a series of races under special war condi 'tions will be held by the V.A.A.A...
Sir William Irvine. GENTLEMAN BEFORE POLITICIAN [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 2 June 1917
Sir William Irvine. GENTLEMAN BEFORE POLITICIAN Playing a lone hand in politics, Sir William Irvine refuses to "re spect the popular verdict" regard ing Conscription farther than to urcg the people to reverse it. He speaks on this theme with pas sion belying his reputation as 'an iceberg." Sir William Ir vine's most memorable political actions reveal him as a gentle man incapable of double-dealing, and as a Nationalist much more advanced in genuine Socialism tfan any clamant orator of the Trades Hall. Sir William Irvine--he was then Mr. W. H. Irvine-was once Premier of Victoria. He was not a good Pre mier. That is to say,-he was not a smart tactician making the Parlia mentary supporters of the Ministry feel confident that no matter what happened, they had a leader who would keep them safe in their con stituencies. That is the kind of leader whom the representatives of a free and en ligihtened democracy in their hearts prefer. A man playing too many tricks, forcing them to explain to...
