PEACE OR WAR? [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 26 August 1911
PEACE OR WAR? ) International arbitration is an idea so ethically glorious that words can- not do justice to it. lt thu mind with lightning speed skims irom thc re- ; mote past tu the present time, and thinks of the innumerable wars which have devastated mankind, retarding so enormously tho upward progress j of civilisation, and then comes to a j stop with the thought: "And all these 1 horrors can at last be prevented,'" , thc full glory of this ideal can be : realised. , A man or a nation who is against international arbitration must either ! be morally or mentally weak.

Derby Notes [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 26 August 1911
Derby Notes Miss Florence Moore, o£ Delor- aine is at present in the district on a visit to friends of this town. Ringarooma mine is progressing rapidly, and it should not bc very long before this part of the com- pany's workings becomes a source of revenue. The watar supply still continues favourable, and many small parties are making good money. The improvement at the Metro " pole, has made this popular coffee palace very comfortable, and reflects credit on the contractor (Mr Q. A. Rodman). People here are disgusted at the fares and freights on the Branxholm extension. The fact of goods cost- ing 3/9 per ton more to bring from Scottsdale, than before the line was built, is regarded as ridiculous. The new Dorset Hotel is regarded as a ve.y creditable architectural effort, and is a vast improvement on the old building. The result of ihe litigation be' tween Mr Donald Fraser and the Arba company is awaited with keen interest.

Current Events. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 26 August 1911
^ Current Events. Thc various problems which com- munities have to face vary greatly but at the present time it seems as if much more than the usual share are prevailing in different parts of the world. Judged by its national im- portance the great outbreak of what one might term . "strike fever" in Great Britain ranks easily first. It is not possible to estimate its effects nor yet the probable end. That it will produce a great advance in wages and conditions of labor seems likely judging by what has so far taken place. It has brought home tn th* renn'« ri'i-oady what cessation a tun,a.. ."vii..tes ivens !c -'.ens.lj populated lands a lesson which may be of the greatest value if put to practical use. But for all the gains obtained a terrible price will be paid unless some early settlement is obtained. Over in Canada a political cam- paign is being waged in which great Imperial questions are involved and upon the result of which futnre nav- al policy may largely depend. In this Domi...
