SPECIAL SERVICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 7 March 1914

SPECIAL SERVIOEBS. At the series of preaching services now being carried on in St. Andrew's School hall by Mr Ronert Robertson. of the Evangelisation Society, the Mis sioner has dealt in a fresh, racy and telling manner with suitable subjects. On Sunday evening, he took Peter's words to Elymas, the sorcerer, "Thy heart.is not right in the sight of God," and. dealt with the need for having something more than the mere form of religion. On Monday night he spoke of the "'Need for Repentance," on the part of many who considered them selves righteous enough. This was brought out from Christ's words when speaking of Galilians and others who had suffered greatly, as the Jews of that time thought, for their great sin fulness. Christ said to His hearers, "Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish." On Tuesday evening, he dwelt on the brightness and blessed.. ness of the Christian life when it is whole hearted and earnest, taking as his text "Be filled with the Spirit." At each of the ser...

CABLEGRAMS. REUTER'S SPECIALS. DEPORTED STBIKE?hS, REPORT OF THE COMMISSION. CAPETOWN, Thursday. The report of the Economic C~oisnis. sion finds that the cost of lhving on the Rand is 40 per cent. higher than in America, and 80 per cent. higher than in Europe. The wages are 40 per cent. higher than in America, and 225 per cent. higher than in Europe. But as the miners labor under many disad vantages their wages are not unrea sonable. The report declares that it is essen tial that the employers should recognise the trade unions, and recommends the protection of non-unionists. Strikes of white workers cause con siderable unrest among , the natives. Shorter hours are recommended, with iigher pay for overtime. The Commission describes the Fede ration of Trades Unions as the second inc of defence against industrial war, and urges employers not to refuse to neet the federation.

An appeal was made, but it failed, and a sentence of from 2 to 20 years was imposed. Miss Williamson executed a will before she left England for America, in which she gave several small annuities, and be- queathed the residue of her estate to her only sister. Before her death, how- ever, she made a codicil, revoking two of the annuities, giving an old gover- ness, Josephine Bell, £50, in addition to a bequest in the will of the same value, and giving £500 to her uncle, ...

SELF DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 March 1914

SELF DEFENCE. General Ian Hamilton liadsomeo good advice to give us when dealing with defence matters. He urgedithoedesira bility of people being trained to i.se.the rifle, going so far as to assert that num bers were of less imlportance than. the ability to shoot well. : This dietum:ne cessarily presupposes that. the larger number will not be so skilful.as the lesser. It, however, has to be delnon; stratel tlint in the defence of our land the rifle is the most important factor. Tnoe sharp shooter idea is reminiscent of Boerland, and is not quite :applicabit to Australia. The pbossible enemies of a country are still (notwithstanding the rapid cmans of transport we have) de tided by geography. No European power could send troops to invade Aus tralia, but there is a great deal ' it General IIamilton's assertion that the next great war will probably be fought in the Pacific, and the possibilities of Australia's enonmies lie in that great sea.

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. FEDERAL RETURNING OFFICERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 10 March 1914

OUB,{M3E1UR NE . LETTEB, FEDERAL. RETURNING OFFICERS, A sound move in the direction or the purification of the electoral system has been made by the Cook Administration, by the substitution of Federal return ing officers for the system hitherto pre. vailing. Under the old system dis trict postmasters were appointed, but necessarily they could not devote that time and attention to the work which is really essential. The new oflicer: will give their whole, time to the work, and they will be expected to exerciso close supervision over their electoratce. They will be required to also pay periodical visits to all parts of their district, and keep the rolls and electoral organisations in a state of continuous; efliciency. Seventy new officers are to be appointed, so that the change will involve a permanent addition to the ever-growing civil service list which the people have to carry, but this is after all a small niatter when compared with the evils which have grown up ini conection with...
