Angry Germany. FEELING TOWARDS ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 20 November 1914
Angry Germany. FEELING TOWARDS ENGLAND A correspondent has placed at the disposal of the London " Morning Post " a private letter written in Aix-la-Chappelle on August 27th. The letter is written by a German lady, and is exceedingly interesting in that it gives a clear account of what the civilian population in Ger many thinks and believes. The writer is convinced that all " educated and intelligent English men " must condemn the war, for which only the British Government aud its policy are responsible. Ger mans, she says, have for years feared that they would be driven into this war and that even their peace-loving Emperor would lose patience one day. Now it has coine, she adds, one can see what a strong, wonder ful Germany has arisen out of the apparent luxury. She speaks of tbe unanimity and enthusiasm with which the Reichstag voted the war credit, and the enthusiasm roused among the German people by the publication of telegrams exchan ged by the Emperor with the Em peror of Russ...
The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 20 November 1914
The Non-Advertiser. ? Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who uever to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such there be, go mark him well, ?or him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here le(. him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughlmay break his dreamless sleep, Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved bo well, And that the world may know its loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss; And on a stone above, "Here lies A chump who wonldn't advertise,"

Who Was The Owner. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 20 November 1914
Who Was The Owner. As to wbo was now the owner of tlie horse that played a prominent part in the Police v. Bibby. the horse being au exhibit in the lar ceny as a bailee a few days ago, came before Mr. J. W. W. Beaven, P.M., at the Courthouse yesterday. Mr. P. P. King submitted the Court had co jurisdiction in the case, as it was a matter between himself and Cricbton and not the police. He voluntarily handed it over. Superintendent Davidson said that Mr. King gave a written undertaking that the horse would be handed over, or the police would have been compelled to seize the horse. There were three parties to the claim, viz,, the previous owner (Crichton), the police and Mr. King. I D. O. Crichton, in stating bis claim, stated that he loaued the horse to Bibby and had not had it since. To Mr. King—In the first court he said he may have given Bibby authority to sell.

Correspondence. LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 20 November 1914
Correspondence. LIBERALS AND CONSERVA TIVES. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—A good deal of discontent prevails about the actions of the Liberals in giving preference to Conservatives. A rumour is in circulation that in that respect things are not as they should be. In fact;-the choice of a candidate was arranged by a few officers of the leagues without asking for nominations in the usual way. or, better still, to have left it open, as the preferential system of voting would have avoided a split vote, and would have giyeu any ambi tious true Liberai an opportunity of entering the field under circum stances that would have permitted of a fair field and no favour. I think it is most regrettable that electors who are truly Liberal should be compelled to vote on the one hand for a straight-out Labor man, or on the other hand a Con servative of the most reactionary type, chosen by a few aristocrats behind the backs of the electors. You can imagine the chosen one congratulating himself after nomin at...
Patriotic Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 20 November 1914
Patriotic Notes. " The children of my disrrict are fine, loya], generous, young British ers," so says Mr Lewis Thomas, B:A-, Inspector of the Warmam 'bool District. "They are doing all in their power," he continues, "to help the noblest of causes." One school of 10 pupils sent in ,£10 ; another of 40 pupils for warded j£2l to swell the funds of the Education Department Patriotic League. This work is going on all over the State ; no wonder the inspectors are proud of the work of children, patents and teachers. The Warrnambool district has ac cumulated £2i0, and the work is still going on. The purely voluntary surrender by the Public Service of a per centage of salary as a contribution to the war fund will mean a hand some contribution. The Teachers' Branch has adopted a minimum of per cent. A junior teacher earning £4 monthly subscribes 24s per year. Some of our Victorian citizens ought well ponder over this. The youngsters of the State are taking the war very seriously. At the Queen...

- - ^——w————— Mr. Carlisle on Carlisle. O His Excuses and Regrets. —2 o A Wonderful Things Done During His Regime. O Audacious Claims. Perhaps no stronger indictment against Mr. J. J. Carlisle, who has passed a happy ten years as the representative of the BenalU elec torate, could have been lodged than that which he launched' himself on Saturday night at the Shire hall. No doubt Mr.. Carlisle felt " truly thankful " to think that only 42 turned out to hear him saunter through a . miserably indifferent • stewardship of three years. It was a muggy atmosphere, and it had become a very palpable fact to our political brave that not only had the' audience felt it too hot to go and stew for even ati hour to listen to his tale of "little attempted, littlej done," but I hat. the nasty weather .jjrotra'C(C(j 0nd - blistering —had been reminding electors in various parts of the Benalla electorate of the great necessity of some such scheme as Nillabcootie.
