THE GAYTHORNE HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 November 1914
THE GAYTHORNE HOTEL. Keiper's Gaythorue Hotel has been completely transformed. The old dining room was pulled down and replaced by a new- erection, a handsome apartment of considerable height and breadth, with a three-ply wooden ceiling, which will be cool in the hot months. Three new bed rooms have been erected, which open in ward, and a new passage just outside these rooms runs back into the yard. The kitchen, which possesses every con venience, is just behind the dining room, and a private passage lias been made ou the east side of the building. The bar, bathroom, in fact, every part of the building has been renovated, so that it would be difficult to find a country hotel possessing better accommodation. It is Mr Eeiper's intention to erect a motor garage at the back in a line with the stables. There is now ample accommodation fo j for visitors, a number of whom are ex I pected, and motorists and other callers will find all their wants attended to.

WAR NEWS. THE POSITION IN EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 November 1914
THE POalTlUiS IN EUKuPli, . The position in Europe, on the western frontier at all events, does uot appear to have under gone any material change. The main fact is, evidently, that the Allies are not only repelling the German at tacks, but are also gaining some slight advantages. This slowness ol I itie advance of liie Allies should not be discouraging, lor the repeated failure of these costly frontal at tacks must be affeuting greatly the morale of the Germans. It should ue of interest just now to remember that the famous battle of Malplaquet, a village in France, not far from the present battle ground, was fought under nearly similar conditions, when, in 1709, Mnriborough and L'rince Eugene defeated the French under Marshals Villars and de Boufflers. The armies "were nearly evenly matched, the French army numbering 95,000 men, and occupy ing a strong position, being attacked by the Allies, who numbered 93,000. The Allies .penetrated the French lines, but at great cost, losing 5 5-...

RIDDELL (From our Own Correspondent.) Tuesday. There was an unfortunate omis sion iu the report of the Footballers' bail ai. Riddell in the last issue of the "Gazette." U should have been stated that gold medals presented to the players by the club's president, Mr. F. Crow, were kindly donated by .Mr. Bran Gilchrist, and at the presentation three hearty cheers were given l'or that gentleman, who had assisted the club in so many ways during the past season. It; was he who was mainly instrumental in keeping the players together, a.nd in active training. .Mr. Gilchrist, amd Air. .lack Smith were mainly respon sible for the admirable decorations of the ballroom. A most regrettable and painful ac cident. happened to (Jr. \V, S. Rich ardson on Sunday evening last.

CORRESPONDENCE ■»—. | Wa do not necessarily endorwo the opinion? expressed by coi respondents in -tbis column.—Ei). &lt;7.G.| A i'HOXEST, TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. Sib,—Mr McGowan's election speech at Gisborne, as reported in your last issue contains statements regarding the honesty of middlemen, to which strong exception should be taken. As a class, they are scrupulously honest and straight forward in their dealings. To make a general statement as to the dishonesty of middlemen is base slander, and bespeaks either ignorance or something worse on Mr McGowan's part. T'ue illustration given savors of antiquity, and it would be interesting to have further particulars as to the name of the firm, day and date, etc. Mr McGowan imputes gross ig norance and busiuoss incapacity to the farmer; but if lie imagines lie (the farmer) is going to be duped by his blatant trumpetting of liis party's shib boleth he underates their intelligence. .Yes, we know how Victoria has pro gressed u...

ICE MAKING AT RIDDELL [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 November 1914
ICE MAKING AT RlDDELL Mr Frank Johnson, of Eiddell, has just added to his already extensive business as cordial and aerated water manufacturer, greengrocer and fruiterer, an ice-making plant, with cool storage. This addition will be of much general benefit, and, it is hoped, a source of profit to the energetic proprietor. Mr Johnson's establishment is now quite up-to-date in its varied character, and is an evidence of his enterprise and industry, which is proverbial. An oil engine of the latest type supplies the motive power for the ice-making and the. bottling of aerated waters. The making of ice is most in teresting, and it is refreshing to pay a visit to the factory on an intensely hot day, and see icicles and frost clinging to the various pi]jes, and to enter the freezing chamber for a time. The machine used is capable of turning out one ton of ice in 24 hours, and this is placed in the cool storage room awaiting delivery when a series of liot days occur, and when there is a big...

Woman as a Legal Personage. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 November 1914
Woman as a Legal Personage. o An interesting fieid for investigation lies in ascertaining the rights and pri vileges «njoyed by women in the . re moter times .ind among8t all nations, imd in tracing the gradual and • ear nestly fought for increase of their privileges, until at the present time ive arrive at the position where, under i»ur own law at least, woman is, with the single exception oi the poli tical sphere, regarded as man's co •mal. The earliest laws recognise tvomen as a legal personage only to j. very slight degree. They draw no distinction, as in the later English law, between married and unmarried >vo:nen. All are alike under perpetual subjection—unmarried under the tute lage of a parent or ancestor ; married under that oi their husbands. They imd no rights with respect to proper ty, and whatever property thsy might, it any time become entitled to passed at once to their guardiaBS or hus band. Gradually they acquire in creased rights.

THE BUCKJUMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 November 1914
THE BUCKJUMPEB. From the Sydnov Daily Teleirrare Now that tho death-kncll of * the horse, at* a means of land travelling1 appears to have been finally sounded by the advent of the motor car i-t, rr.ignt be interesting just now to re call that picturesque figure of the old days in Australia—the bueir jumper ana his rider, both of which are now practically extinct. Horse and rider were of no small importance in those days. They lent a spice of thrill to the comparatively dull life of the bufah, and held out a way by which the young- transplanted Briton might give vent to his itatur&l craving to dare and excel The age at which a horse felt his .first saddle often rested with tho mere caprice of the owner, or the nature of the season, or even the immediate state of the %veather at any given time. The breaking-in pro cess is a considerable strain upon the constitution of a horse, especially if lie is of a wild, refractory nature. Consequently owners preferred thai the grass be lo...
ITALY PREPARING. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 November 1914
Italy I'befasing. Action which is highly significant as an indication of Italy's intentions has been taken by the Cabinet at Rome. The Cabinet hag decreed |an expen diture of an additional £8,000,000 on the navy, making a total of £40,000.000 for the army and since Signor Salandra's accession as Prime Minister last month. The Government has also voted the sum gja^£250,000 for strategic railways on the Venetian frontier, and has authorised'the formation of five new artillery regiments. An interesting incident is reported from Triest, on the Adriatic, where, at night time, a number of Italian flags was secretly hoisted upon public buildings.
RIDDELL Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 27 November 1914
RIDDELL (From Our Own Correspondent.) Tussday. EiCDEit's Cbees WjlTer Supply— The Biddell* correspondent writes under Monday's date:—Alarm and indignation lias been created here by the proposal of the chairman of the Sunbury Water Trust to ask the Minister of Water Supply that, in view of the short age of the supply in Sunbury, a portion of the compensation water due from the Sunbury main to Eiddell's Creek be di verted to Sunbury. This is a most unfair and unjust proposal, and would be a breach of legal conditions and obligations. When the Minister of Water Supply visited this district last summer, he stated most emphatically that the due amount of compensation water to Eid dell's Creok would, in future, be main tained in full. The Sunbury Trust is to meet the Minister on Wednesday next in regard to this matter, and his reply to the trust's astounding proposals—in view of what Mr Hutchinson had already — stated—is awaited with great interest. Even now, with the full amount of com p...
