HOW BISMARK ORICEO PEACE In the autumn of 1870 Bismarck found himself face to face with a problem of tremendous difficulty. The German" armies had every where defeated the French. The French. how"ever, fought on. They refused to make pzaee; they put to hopeless confusion the ideasI of many officers on the. (icrman staff-Moltke ar.cng them-that France would hoist the white flag as soon as a German army appeared before Paris. Moltke's letters show that he expected to be shooting in .Silesia by the end of October 187u. Bismarck. then had to find some way of forcing peace upon a high spirited and defiant nation. And he found it quickly enough in the de cision to reduce Paris, the very .heart of France, by blockade. It was a slow method, but it was sure. .In Se.ptember the German armies Sbegan their movements to envelop the city. The iron ring closed in .upon a population of two million souls.

GENERAL WAR NEWS London, Feb. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
GENERAL WAR NEWS London, Feb. 1 The "Daily Chronicle" dee'ares that Mr. Wa'ter Long's declaration that the conquered coion:cs woa.d never be handed back to German rule is most important. It embod ies the decision of the Ministry, Like the Czar's declaration about Constantinople and Poland it clears up a point on which there was risk of ambiguity. The Empire is vit, ally interested in the Pacific colon ies and South-west and East Africa.' because a decision to return them would cause a grave breach be tween the mother country and three; of the five dominions, we are mor-i ally pledged to the dominions in the matter. We cannot imagine France and Belgium as willingly consenting to have Germany for a neighbour in the Cameroons. The Germans used Togoland and its great w:re less station to assist her Atlrntic cbmmerce raiders. Japan's reten tion of Kiao-chau may be taken for granted.. The Government should supplement Mr. Long's statement with a similar one regarding the Mesopotamian end o...

LEND YOUR MONEY TO YOUR COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
LEND YOUR MOMEY TO YOUR COUNTRY. While the Recruiting Commit tees are making a strong appeal to the manhood of the country for reinforcements, they ore also tak ing dhe opportunity of impressing on everybody the necessity for money to carry on the war as well.

Every War Bond you buy will help to bring victory nearer, and: perlaps to save the unnecessirgt Sacrifice of many lives

QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT'S EMBARGO Brisbane, Jan. 31. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
-QUEERRSIAD.D OBVERNMHEINT'S EMBAIRC Brisbane., Jan. 21. The belief that the Queensland Labour Government's embargo has engendered a desire for ret'aliation in other States is evident from a report emanating from Tenterfield (New South Wales), wherein it is suggested that the export of 'timber from the Mother State to Queens land be disallowed. It is pointed out that large quantities of tim ber are sent to this State from the northern districts of New South Wales, largely for use in the Darling Downs districts, and that the prohibition of .its export might serve to bring the Queensland Go vernment to its political senses. The matter was menetioned to the Minister for Lands this morning. Mr. Hunter said that he had heard nothing of the suggestion, and would make no comment beyond that it seemed it would not be in the interest of New South Wales to adopt the suggestion. If this tim ber were not exported to Queens land, the probability was that it would simply lie and rot in the forest...
N.S.W LABOUR PARTY Sydney, Feb. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
H.S.W LABOUR PARTY Sydney, Feb. 4. Mr. P. C. Evans general secre tae.ry of the Political Laboux League of New South Wales, announced to d Iy that a conference' of braanch delegates and union officials on Fri day a)greed upon a ca.mpaign for carrying on the organisation and propaganda of the Labour move ment. The proposal to form speak mng teams was well in hand, and shortly the objective of the party's platform would be exp!?ined to the people from 200 to 300 platforms every week. Mr. Evans aleged that the Parliamentary party led by Mr. Holman had retained control of the executive and practically directed the conference. The result was that any idea of reversing the opinion that the Labour movement had achieved its object was practically prevented by the influence they exercised in the only channel of attack. It was hoped that hence forth a militant executive and a conference free from baneful influ ence of party members would he able to safeguard the movement, and see that its repr...

STATE POLITICS Perth, Feb. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
STATE POLITICS Perth, Feb. 2. The defeat of the Government on several vital points in connection with the State Trading Concerns Bill in the Legislative Assembly last night caused considerable discussion in political circles to-day. The gen eral opinion is that the bill will be recommitted but, if rumour is cor rect, the Wilson Government will not then be out of their troubles, because, if the measure is recommit ted, it is known that at least two members of the Country party are strongly opposed to the proposal contained in the original measure giving the Government power to sell without first consulting Parliament. Then there is the possibility cf a dissolution for, in the course of his reply to the deputation from the A.L.F. which waited upon him to day in reference to State trading concerns, the Premier, Mr. Wilson, said he doubted very much whether the majority of the people of the State were in favour of those enter prises.

PATRIOTIC INVESTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
PATRIOTIC INVESTMENT. This third, and it is hoped last, I year of the great war is emphatical- } ly and pre-eminently a time for con centrating all our resources of men; money, and power for a knock-out finish. It is a period when the Empire needs, as Beaumont and Fletcher' phrased it three centuries ago, Victuals and ammunition,: And money too, the sinews of war. The Greht Napoleon was wont; to say: "An army marches'. on its stomach"-not that he miieant it was a. gasteropod, but that it would not move unless its collective sto mnachs were "filled 'and fed. This is a year of loans, both in Britain and the Dominions. England has, in a few days, been supplied by her people with . over: £200,000,000: for the victory loan ; and Australia is asking its citizens to subscribe *a fourth war loan to the ext.ent of .£18,000,000, out of an authorisa tion of fifty millions, of which £23, 000,000 was raised last June. These figures look' colossal in . financiala grandeur, but Australia .is, for ...
