THE REV. R. J. CAMPBELL. DRIVEN INTO SOCIALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
THE REV. R. 3. CAMPBELL. DRIVEN INTO SOCIALISM. Last night (31st October) tne Bev. K. J. Campbell, addressing a crowded meeting at Fulham, said he had been asked why he had been driven to Socialism. He was driven to Socialism by the sheer weight of the Gospel which he preached. Socialism had proved itself the great est of the world's forces in the direction of International brotherhood. It had already done more than all the forces of diplomacy— 'Government of the people, by the people, for the people'— best de scribed Socialism. A Voice : 'That's tho Liberal plat form.' 'Exactly,' said Mr Campbell, 'and I claim every Liberal in the room for So cialism.' (Laughter, and 'Hear, hear'). Ho added that It was the ideal with which the Christian started; 'Thy. will be done on earth,' showed that for the same purpose primitive Christianity and modern Socialism were so near akin that they could regard ths two as the same movement. Let them take a leaf out of the book of the great combines, an...

CRAZE FOR THIEF DRAMAS. Theft Is not a particularly edifying crime; it has not even the romance of -murder and the crime passlonncl abiut It, ana yet Its glorification In the thea tre continues popular. Not only have we had hero. and heroine thieves in Raffles, Leah Klescnna, anj The Sins of ?Society, but U6w we are promised The Thief at the St James's.

TEMPERATE HABITS WHAT ARE THEY ? IMPORTANT ASSURANCE QUES TION. A man who was insured in the Britan nic Assurance Company committed sui cide. At the Exeter Assizes, where Mr Justice Walton presided, a special Jury awarded his widow, Mrs Leigh, the L200 which she claimed under the policy. The company's appeal to the High Court was decided on 23th October, when it was dismissed. Mr Foote, K.C. (with whom was Mr Simon), for the company, said the de fence was that the policy had been ob tained by making a false declaration and the suppression of material facts.

WHERE TO LOOK. A BOOK OF REFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
WHEBB TO LOOK. A BOOK OF REFERENCE. One of the latest attempts to wrestle with the complexity of the world, as some of our readers will be aware, is a book called 'Where to Look: An Uasy Guide to Works of Reference.' If you want to know how many uniforms the German Emperor has, or what Is the length of the Chinese Ambassador's pig tall, or how close President Roosevelt has ever been to a bear— anything, in fact, important enough to have a place in one of the two or three hundred refer ence books In our language— this volume tells you where to look for it '.Tie ./Ub lishers have now. sent us' a copy of the following -document Just received by |Uiem!^%'vV :\';- :-/r^-' y- ??-;? -,;, '?';?' ?

FORTUNES IN BIOGRAPHIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 15 January 1908
FORTUNES XR BIOGRAPHIES. Is It still possible to make a fortune out of a single publication ? The answer depends, in part, on the definition of the term 'fortune.' But if you are modest enough so to describe fi. sum of L20.000, that is the amonnt which Messrs. Mac mlllan arc reputed to have netted out of Money's 'Life of Gladstone.' Equal luck seems likely to attend Mr Murray as publisher of 'Queen Victoria's tet ters.'— 'The Sketch.'
