The Downfall of Germany. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 21 October 1914
The Downfall of Germany* (By Bill Nte) One prominent feature of the war in which we are engaged is that amongst the indissolubly united peoples'of the Empire bracing'them selv-es to meet the menace to our sovereignly and the highest and best traditions of civilisation, there is discernible no note of jingoistic boastfulness. The true test of our Empire's greatness is not her wealth, her power, her earth-encircling do minion, her navy, her armaments and men. There is a more crucial test than these evidences of the ampli ivtde and solidity of her sovereign power, and that 'is the "calmness of spirit with which she meets the dark hour of adversity. This hour has now come, and with it the test of her fitness to hold the title of do minion which she built up in, the ye^rs of abounding prosperity. And the test has not found her wanting. The unitedness of all parts of the Empire in the time of trial, th6 quiet determination, the feeling of absolute trust in the final outcome of the conflic...

Women Councillors. [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 21 October 1914
Women Councillors. In the Legislative Assembly on Thursday further consideration was given in committee to the Local Go vernment Bill. Mr Cotter moved an amendment to section 52 of the prin cipal act in order to permit of .women becoming members of municipal coun cils. Among those not eligible for municipal office, he said, were insolv ents, persona of unsound mind, and he did not see why women should be in that category. He took the view that the inclusion of women ,£.moiig these persons must have been an oversight by legislators who were responsible for the principal act. Women, he declar ed, would be ideal municipal coun cillors, and should be giyen an oppor tunity to shoV? their capacity in that connection, if the electors desired them to act. Mr Lawson intimated that the Ministry would accept the amendment. "Although," he said', "I do not wish to talk abeut the emanci pation of women, there is no reason I why we should deny women the right to sit as councillors or deny the eiec...

Can Germany Win? [Newspaper Article] — Lang Lang Guardian — 28 October 1914
Can Germany WMP One of the best contributions to the literature of the.war is made by Dr Eitchett in "Life" for November. Treating the subject under three sec tione, he shows very clearly, first, hdw the challenge of Germany was met "; second, how the whole campaign is moving ; and third, the story of the batties. And his final judgment aeems to be that Germany, in spite of her magnificent fighting &ac&ma, and her wonderful organisation—to both of which tribute is paid—is fore-doom, ed to failure for reasons which He sets out plainly and very cleverly, Dr Eitchett's review of the war's progress is illustrated with many pages of fine pictures and accompanied by several special articles bearing on the eame Bubjecl—such as a per sonal view of the Kaiser by a leading Australian minister now in London ; an informative article 011 the geogra. phy of th'o war - and a description of the aerial navies of the Great Powers by W.
