A CHARGE OF FAVORITISM To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 15 January 1919

A CHARGE OF FAVORITISM To the Editor. Sir, - I notice by "The Advocate"   report of Devonport Council meeting held on Monday that Mr. G. N. Levy, through Cr. Luck, complained that he had been prevented from putting in a narrow street, while Mr. J. W Bar- ratt had been allowed to do so. I would here state that I have not had a narrow Street put in any allotment of mine. Before the Government Sur- veyor received instructions to survey   the block in Parker street (the one referred to), I asked the right auth- ority, I hope (the Council Clerk), what width private streets had to eo in cut ting up a block; he said they must not be less than 60ft. wide now. The surveyor has made the new street men- tioned 60ft. wide according to instruc- tions (that means there will be about 100ft. from house to house across the street). Therefore I would point out that I have not ignored the regulat- ion of the council. J. W. BARRATT. Devonport.

HUNGARY'S DEMANDS. A PEACE BASED ON ATTLSON'S POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 15 January 1919

HUNGARY'S DEMANDS. A PEACE BASED ON WILSON'S POINTS. NEW YORK, Monday.-The United Press correspondent at Budapest, the capital of Hungary, interviewed Pre-   mier Karolyi, who said that the peace must be social and economic, as well as political, and based on Dr. Wilson's l2l points or there would be war   within a few years. Hungary's only hope is that Dr. Wilson's principles will govern the Peace Conference. Hungary's entire policy is Wilsonian. Budapest is on the verge of being Bol- shevic. Hungary can't do anything un- til it is recognised. The Entente, Hungary's erstwhile enemies, must as- sist. He advocated the formation of a commission headed by Americans to fix Hungary's political boundaries.

THE SHIPPING PROSPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 15 January 1919

THE SHIPPING PROSPECT The news in yesterday's "Advocate"   that there is hope of shipping space be-   ing available for blue peas was received   with genuine satisfaction by growers. The pea crop promises to be a big   one, except in those paddocks which suffered by the late frost last Novem-   ber, and should the market collapse, as had been suggested, it would prove a serious disappointment as well as finan-   cial set-back to the many who have staked so much this year on blue peas.   Peas from the new season's crop are   now arriving on the market, and the yields are excellent. "The opening price has been in the vicinity of 10' per bushel, but according to merchants   this value could not be expected to   hold in the event of no shipping space being available.

HOMAGE TO NURSES To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 15 January 1919

HOMAGE TO NURSES To the Editor.   Sir,-I was greatly interested in reading your article in Saturday's "Advocate," "Homage to Nurses." For a long time I have been looking for, and hoping to see, a repatriation scheme for those heroin women, the   Red Cross nurses, who too often return to these shores, their health under- mined,-their nerves shattered, by the   awful strain they have gone through during their invaluable services to the Empire for the last four years. Much more than a welcome home, a shake of the hand, or even a medal for ser- vices rendered is wanted to show our permanent gratitude to those who left everything to minister to our gallant boys. At the present time many sug- gestions are being put forward as suit able memorials for our never-to-be   forgotten dead. Memorial halls, clubs,   and reading rooms to bo erected in the towns are some of the schemes advo- cated. These will benefit more parti- cularl...

DEVONPORT.   Cadets' Association. - The annual meeting of the Devonport Military   Cadets' Association is to be held in the Drill Hall on Monday night. Parents   of cadets are specially invited, and it is hoped that there will be a good at- tendance. The business will include the consideration of the annual report and balance sheet and the election of officers. Post Office Facilities. - The Post   Master-General will be amongst the Federal party which is visiting Devon- port on the 30th inst., and it is the intention of the Warden (Cr. H'. H. M'Fie) to urge that Devonport be put on an equal footing with other impor- tant towns in regard to lettergrams and telegrams after 6 p.m.,at which hour the office now closes. It is con- sidered that a town of the sizo of De- vonport, which is the third in the State so far as the volume of business is concerned, should certainly be grant- ed this convenience. Mr. L.
