PRESIDENT WILSON AND CONGRESS [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914
iPRIIESIDENT WILSON AND CONGIRESS Congress *9IsOilon will prlobablv con tinue into the summer. ilow mlluch will be accomplished depends on Pre sident Wilson's relationship with Con gress. says "Tile Times" Washington correspondent. It is extraordinary how he dominates the situation at present. His popularity with the country, his fearlessness, and the adroitness of his political tactics have got legislators spellbound. A motion has been introduced in Congress au thorising the President to nationalise lands containing radium-bearing ores. By the casting vote of the chairman of the Worcestershire Standing Joint Committee, MIr C. H. Bird, deputy Clerk of the Peace of Devon, was ap pointed Clerk of the Peace of Worces tershire at a salary of £1000 a year. His rival was Mir H. J. T. AM'Ilveen, deputy town clerk of Birmingham.

IF HOME RULE PASSES. WHAT NEXT STEP WOULD BE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914
IF HOME RUL. PASSES. WH\'IAT NEXT STEP WOULD BE. In view of tile present crisis, a fore cast of what will happen if the bill is finally passed is interesting. The bill passed through the House of Commons in the two successive sessions of 1912 and 1913, and if it passes its third reading in the House of Commons this session it will come under the opera tion of the Parliament Act and be come law. Writing -on this question Professor Swift M' Neill, Professor of Consti tutional Law in the National Univer sity of Ireland, states:-" The very earliest date on which the Royal as sent can, under these conditions, be given to the Government of Ireland Bill will be (after its passing its third reading the third time in the House of Conunons) two years after May 9, 1912, when it first passed its second read ing in that House-that is to say, May 9, 1914-and after its subsequent rejection by the House of Lords, which might be approximately fixed in the first or second week in June, 1914.

EARLY LONDON MOTORS STEAM-DRIVEN 'BUSES [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914
EARLY LONDON MOTORS STI.iLiM-lIVEN 'BUi:'ES The motor (says "The Daily Tele graph" of January 15) has invaded many fields in triumph, but there is one extensive territory whjeh so far it has failed to occupy. The horse still trots merrily between the shafts of the tradesman's light van. Mr D. T. Smith, who, in a paper be fore the Association of Engineers-in Charge, at the St. Bride Institute, Fleet street. on "Commercial Motor Vehicles," last night, considered the position with regard to those, stated there was at present no vehicle of which he was aware that was a satisfactory suhsti tute for the tradesman's light van. When it was discovered, he added, its sales would be phenomenal. It was useless to offer the average tradesman who ran a horse and van a motor ve hicle at £350, to carry an equal load he could not, in most cases, afford the mlolney. For other reasons, it was not satisfactory to offer him a chassis, which was really designed for private work. On the development of the...
HOME RULE SITUATION. London, March 23. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914
HOME RULE 81TUATION. -4------- (Per Reuter.) London, March 23. The Home Rule crisis is still very acute, and the next step by the Gov ernment is being anxiously awaited. There have been other resignations of otlicers ordered to I lster, but the of ficial statement is that the majority agreed to go to Ulster on being told that they would not be expected to par ticipate in hostilities. Mr. Asquith, the Prime Minister, and Field Marshal Sir John French, have had interviews with the King, and there have been conferences among rMinisters. It is said that the Ulster leader, Sir Edward Carson, has conferred with other leaders regarding the mobfilisa tion of the Ulster volunteers. It is expected that a new line of policy will be declared by the Prime Minister when Parliament meets.
INDIA AND CEYLON ADAM'S BRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914

Of all the bridges of the world Adam's Bridge. between India and Cey lon, which is not a bridge at all-and never has been-is the most fa nlous: and now the strait is really going to be spanned-not yet, but sonme day soon. And meanwhile the ends of the steel rails will dip down within sight of each other, and ferry hoats \\ill plough backwards and forwards, and the misery anid sea-s:-kness of the long sea journey betwe n ('Colomllbo and futllii corin will be a th ng of thle past. On February 24 the two ends. will be for mally opened ,by the GovC\rnors of Madras and Ceylon. Exceplt in the very centre of the strait. where t: e larger coasting ships can-but very rarely do-go, there are no great enrgineering ditliculties.

RELIGION AND EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914
RELIGION AND EDUCATION. -4-- Wr\\'ites our Sydney correspondent:- The controversy respecting the place of religion in education is increasing in interest; and it is becoming of a practical,- rather than of a -theoretical, character. Many who stand aloof from the conflict between the Protes tants and the Roman Catholics, are be ginning to ask whether that ancient feud ought to be allowed to deprive the future men and women of the State of the benefits of religion. It is con tended, and observation seems to con firm the statement, that unless the re straints of religion are implanted in childhood and youth, it is comparative ly rare that they are acquired in later life; but, without such restraints, there is hardly any excess of folly or wickedness of which human nature, if circumstances favour, is not capable. Not merely religious, but the most commonplace ethical teaching, under present conditions, is often "shunt ed,'' as not being conducive to the "elfficiency" of the schools or t...
WORKER FOR LABOR ADVOCATE OF ARBITRATION [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914
-------?I?2?. .,i2 ? WORKER FOR LABOR ADVOCATE OF ARBI'IRATION It is unusual to find a man within a little of his eightieth birthday whose life has been one of labor intent upon new plans by which hie may be bur dened with duties to take the place of larger affairs that he is now hardly strong enough to carry (says "The Daily News and Leader" of January 14). That was the task a "Daily News" visitor found Mr Robert Applegarth, the veteran reformer, trade unionist, and educationist engaged upon yesterday. "Bob" Applegarth will never retire friom the trade union movement. Dur ing the last dock strike this little, frail man was looking after thle -Vwonded. IHe was asked by a famlous leader to speak on Tower Hlill on one occasion, and went there to do so. But the memory of the stricken back streets overwhelmed him, and he could nlot speak. Such is his sympathy. IN THE FOREFRON'T Robert Applegarth is one of tile greatest figures in the history of trade unionism and of the working class mo...

WHITEHALL HOAX [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 27 March 1914
WHITEHALL HOAX Between the hours of noon and threel on January 7, Whitehall and the neigh boring streets wvitnessed a rush for candles such as not been known within the memory of mortal man. IBanks. shops, clubs, institutions great anl small, cried, in the words of the dyi:ng Goethe, for "Light, more light." And all in vain. The cause of this unprecedented de mand Isays "t'he Daily .Mail") was a short, thick-set, clean-shaven mlan- a "respectable-looking man although wearing a brown overcoat." as one wit ness described him.
