CONDITIONS IN GERMANY. FINANCIAL TROUBLES AHEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916
CONDITIONS IN GERMANY. $ J ' j FINANCIAL TEOUBLES AHEAD. Dr Friedrich Faumann, a well-known mem ber of tlie Beichstag, and a leader of the Radical Party, has been lecturing in Ger many on the economics of the war (says the London "Daily Chronicle" of November 5). When we remember that Herr Naumann af firms his belief in the ultimate victory of Germany and her allies, we must admit that his conclusions are not very encouraging for ! his own patriots. i In his belief Germany has solved the bread and potato difficulty with a minimum of trouble, al^o the pork question. It is only when food is concerned which depends on free importation that real difficulties begin. These difficulties are already keenly felt in the mat ter of butter, fat, and" eggs, and will continue to be felt. There is al30 serious trouble ahead with regard to the milk supplies, and the growlings and mutterings among large bodies of the people about dogs and cats drinking milk in luxurious homes while the babies of the...

IT WORKS FAIRLY WELL. If the United States desires to aid Great Britain and her Allies, the honorable and manly course would be to join them openly in the war. —Springfield Republican. But isn't there a sort of equity in the pres ent working arrangement, under whicty the American friends of the Allies hei'p the Allies I all they can, and the American friends, of the Teutons help the Teutons all they can, while j Washington remains neutral? The United States is a corporation, and has no feelings. It is the people wao have feel ings.

GERMANS SUPPLY FREE ELECTRIC CURRENT TO ALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916
GERMANS SUPPLY FREE ELECTRIC CURRENT TO ALLIES. In the Electrical World there is a story of how the Germans supplied the Ailiesjswith cur rent for several months without being aware of the fact. When the German« first occupied Lille, while the Allied troops held possession of Armentieres near by, the soldier-engineers of the Kaiser's army discovered the abandoned Lille electric lighting plant, and, according to the story told by a British soldier in a letter home, shortly had the generators running and th« town again lighted by electricity. It was some months, however, before the Germans discovered that the Lille lighting system was also connected with Armentieres and that a good share- of the energy generated inside the Teuton lines was being used , to light the Allies' quarters and troop tents in the neigh boring city.

TURNING THE TABLES. BRITISH AIRMAN'S FEAT. An extraordinary story is related by the •Boulogne correspondent of the London " Daily Telegraph.'' During the early hours of a November morning a British flight commander went up in his machine on a reconnaissance trip. When over the . German lines his engine suddenly stopped, and he was forced to descend in the enemy's positions. 4 As soon as he came to a standstill on the ground he was surrounded by German soldiers, with fixed bayonets, and when he got down from his seat two German officers approached and told him in French, to give up his arms. He was then ordered immediately to repair his engine, and was given every assist . ance by the officers When the motor was once again in working order, the two German officers told the British airman to get into his machine. The aviator did as he was told, but took tlie precaution of strapping himself in. The officers proceeded to get into the ma chine behind him, each holding a revolver, and the...

CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 18 February 1916
CORRESPONDENCE To the Editor Sir,—A few items in "River's" letter call for remark, the balance is mere egotistic assertion which may convince "River," bat - logically proves nothing.. He says,'"He ('Ban dor') claims that Route Marches have been conclusively proved to be well known efficacious aids to re cruiting and in this ENTIRELY UNWAR RANTED assertion," etc. Every Route Mairch so far, has been acknowledged by the military, and the press, to have been highly successful, both as regards the number of recruits join ing the march, but, in far greater measure, in the enthusiasm engen dered, and the stimulus given to re cruiting. And this latter not be cause of the flag-waving- so decried by "River," but fey the sight of our lads of set- purpose, and volunteers all, marching off to fight our battles. Again "' Bandor ' appeal's to think the men engaged in a Route March are learning something." Yes, ."Ban dor" does, not only think it, but know it. As the 22 men swung out of Tooiaweenah,...
