Kaiser will Abdicate. SO STATES AUTHOR OF "J'ACCUSE." Paris. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
Kaiser will Abdicate, SO STATES AUTHOR OF "J'ACCUSE." Paris. The abdication of the German Em peror is forecast by the fbrmer iGer' man magistrate who wrote the cele' brated book "J'Accuse" in an inter view published in "L'Oeuvre." He says; "The .Kaiser is obsessed by the thought that he is responsible for the war, a thought which poisons his whole existence. He feels that he is menaced by three enemies at home, without counting those abroad. First is the Crown Prince, the real author of the war; second is the junker Pan Germanist-who cannot imagine the smouldering hatred of the Emperor for those whom he believes to be maniacs who are driving him into an abyss; third, are the people, not the Socialist party, but the people who are starving and who he feels are gi'owing in number and rising little by little against those who organised the. war.

An Innocent Adventuress By CHARLES PROCTOR. Author of "The Dice of God," "What Shall It Profit a Main?" "At Dead of Night," etc., etc. Published by Special Arrangement. (Copyright.) CHAPTER VII. "Fooled." "If this is intended as a joke, Mr. Cramer, I fancy you are carrying it a little too far," commented Hector quietly. Cramer's threat nad startled him, but save that his bronzed face paled slightly he retained his composure. "The joke-as you affect to con sider it-has a serious side, Lieuten ant Ilampden" responded Cramer calmly. "You would do well to con tider what I have said, and to recog nise that I mean what I say. I have set my heart on having a look at those plans. I know it is useless offering you money, and would not in sult you by suggesting your accept ance of a bribe, but I also happen to know that you were responsible for the death of Captain Cosmo Jenkins. and I put it to you whether you think it is worth your while to run the risk of being convicted for mur der in ord...

FLUFF FROM "THE FAN." [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
FLUFFi FROM "THE FAN." "Reginald was one of those miser able dark men who have to shave twice every day while they are en gaged to be married."' "My companion wiped from his brow the perspiration which he wish ed me to believe had gathered there, called forth by emotion- consequent upon the impassioned recital of his wrongs. I noted the artistry of the touch. A man may control his voice and his manner, but not his perspira tion."-"The Fan and Other Stories," by William Caine. "If there is to be a cessation of 'shouting' in hotels, why not also in tea-rooms?" asks "Embittered Bertie" with a wry smile as he emerges from a fashionable Collins-street cafe ac companied by his sisters and his cousins and his aunts. The tea-room "shouting" trouble threatens to be come more terrible to remaining males as the war-call depletes their numbers. Unlike the common beer "shout" in a bar, there is no give and take about the tea-room "shout"-the man pays. In the hotel, where "shout ing" is promiscuo...

TORPEDOED ON HOSPITAL SHIP WOUNDED RICHMOND SOLDIER EXPERIENCES HUN SAVAGERY. HIS TRIBUTE TO THE NOBLE WORK AND BRAVERY OF WOMEN. WELL-KNOWN RICHMOND FOOTEALLER WOUNDED. THE GRAVE AND GAY SIDE OF- WAR. Private Eric Hibbert, son of Mrs. Hibbert, Newry-street, lies with other wounded men in the Welsh Hospital, Netley, England. He is the youngest son of Mrs. Hibbert's three soldier sons, being only 18 years of age, though he has seen 12 months' ser rice. One brother has returned after good service, and the other brother, an Anzac, is still fighting. The Hib bert boys were all three well known and esteemed down the east end. Private Eric Hibbert writes:-"I am in 'Blighty' at last . My experiences have been exciting and great. I was wounded in France on March 20, and was invalided to England.

RICHMOND COURT Thursday, June 7. Before the Mayor (Cr. A. F. Fear) and Mr. J. R. Le Pine. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 9 June 1917
RICHMOND COURT Thursday, June 7. Before the Mayor (Cr. A. F. Fear) and Mr. J. R. Le Pine. Charged with having used obscene language at the Vine Hotel on June 4, Clifford Davis was fined £5, in de fault one month's imprisonment. Leniency for Man Who Stole Boots. Sub-Inspector Heaney is one of the fairest and most straight-going prose cutors around the courts. He never rejects what he considers is a fair appeal for "another chance," nor does he ever stoop to doing anything that might be considered as "putting the dirt in." Typical of the stand he takes up were his actions when Thomas Morley was charged with the larceny of a pair of boots from White's boot shop, Swan street. Sergeant Campbell was conducting the case, and it was evident that Mor ley was "simple." When the evidence was concluded he could make no defence. Then Healey took a hand. "Although I am not in this case I hope your worships will allow me to say a word. This unfortunate fellow is apparently not quite responsible. I...

Presbyterian Jubilee Celebrations Prove Successful. — Cantata in Town Hall To-night Marks Continuance. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
Presbyterian Jubilee Celebrations Prove Successful. - Cantata in Town Hall To-night Marks Contin uance. Diamond Jubilee celebrations of the Richmond Presbyterian Church are passing off successfully. Large congregations marked .the services last Sunday. Over 200 attended at the. united communion service, and a feature was the number of old folk. Two vehicles were employed to take them to the church, and as some of them had not been out for years they appreciated the compliment. Fine sermons at both services were list ened to appreciatively. The mothers' day gathering in the afternoon was particularly pleasing. All the chil dren wore white flowers in honor of mother, and the majority brought their parents with them. Standing, the children repeated the fifth com mandment, and waved their handker chiefs above their heads. Many old friendships were renewed at a social reunion held on Tuesday. The walls of the school hall re-echoed to a con stant buzz of conversation and re miniscence, an...
OPEN COLUMN. RICHMOND ROADS. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
OPEN COLUMN. RICHMOND ROADS. (To the Editor.) S:r,-Dr. Rosenberg's leter in your last issue is based on assumptions which, being incorrect, make his let ter valueless. Statements are set out in the town clerk's reply to the Rich mond branch of the P.L.C. which are. briefly as under: "The footpaths were originally con structed out of loan moneys. The cost of the work of reconstruction, which is very heavy, has to be borne by the municipal fund. The roads in the city are now better than at any time in the history of Richmond, and this result has been achieved by the council installing two stonecrushers, employing additional quarrymen, pur chasing stables, horses and drays and largely increasing its number of em ployes engaged in carting and distri buting metal. The council has now installed its own tar distilling plant. During the present financial year the council has expended £2000 alone on tar-dressing the surface of roads, and employs two asphalt gangs where in former years only o...

Rodriquez, on be half of himself and three brothers, was the buyer. While the sale - involves the pay ment of the highest sum paid for Swan-street frontage for some years, it is not a record.

Property at the corner of Swan and Church streets sold at £112 a foot, and another corner site, Moran and Cato's, ...
Flossie's Mistake. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 16 June 1917
Flossie's Mistake. The middle-aged millionaire entered the drawing-room where Flossie had artfully arranged herself against a pile of silk sofa cushions. He sat down beside her and took her soft hand in his. "Flossie, my dear, your mother has given her consent, and-" A dainty blush overspread her dam ask cheek at this honor; but was she giving herself away cheaply? Not likely! With a reminiscence of Bernhardt, she sprang to her feet. "No," she cried-"no! That can never be, Mr. Giltsock--never! I like you as a friend, but I can never be more than a sister to you!" "You're mistaken!" said Mr. Gilt stock politely. "You'll be a daughter to me. Your mother has just given her consent, as I was about to say, and has accepted me as her husband."

At a small country church the pas tor, whose congregation consisted chiefly of the poorer class, farm la borers, etc., was one Sunday morn ing during the course of his sermon trying to make his subject plain to them, and remarked that he had given them his opinion on the subject, but the commentators didn't agree with him.
