PRESS COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
PRESS COMMENTS. ' The "'Daily ChroLicle," commenting on the Goverument's proposals, 'says that the time limit is not very material. It asks :--" Why should not Ulster have a referendum every three years ?" The "Daily News" declares that "the threat of civil war is being used to restore the supremacy of the Lords, and that the Ulster farmers are being drilled in order to deprive democracy of the fruits of victory won in 1910." Ths "Daily News" declares that "if the very generous terms offered by the Premier are rejected, the country will ask for the severe repression of the rebel movement." The "Daily Mail" says :-"General disapploitment is felt at Mr Asquith's proposals, which are not practicable. The defect lies in the time limit."
THREE ROADS CONSIDERED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
• THREE ROADS CONSIDERED. The Prime Minister proceeded to say. that the Government had considered three roads that might lead out of the difliculties of the position. The first of these was Home Rule within Home Rule, which did not commend itself to any? of the parties., The second was the inclusion of the whole of Ireland, with option for the Ulster counties to recede after a period,-but this w'ay out also possessed fatal drawbacks. The third road was exclusion 'for Ulster. The Government had decided that Ui+ ster should- be allowed 'to say whether she desired exclusion. -To this end a poll of, the electors of 'Ulster would be taken before the Home Rule -Bill be came operative.- If the -voting was in favor of:exclusion, the period of six years would date from the first meeting of the Irish Parliament. Mr Asquith added: that he- considered that the term decided upon would afford ample time to test the new Parliament, and the electors of the United Kingdoin would be able to say wheth...

MR REDMOND'S SUGGESTION. PARLIAMENT NOT TO BE OVERAWED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
MR REDMOND'S SUGGESTION. PARLIAMENT NOT TO BE OVER AWED. Mr Redmond said that "If Ulster frankly accepted the Government's proposals as a basis of peace, we will tccept them in the same spirit. It will be a tragedy if Sir Edward Car son and his friends refuse to assist in creating Government in Ireland, and they will live to see that that they have taken a wrong course.' Mr Redmond. coutiuuing, said: "If the Opposition, in a moment of unwisdom and passion, reject this far reaching, generous suggestion, they (the Government) owe it to Ireland andi the Empire to put the bill on the Statute Book without delay, and face witu firmness any movement to over awe Parliament and subvert the law by the menace of arms."
MR BONAR LAW'S CRITICISM. REFERENDUM URGED. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 12 March 1914
MR BONAX - LAW'S CRITICISM. REFERENDUM URGED. Mr Bonar Law, said. the Prime Min ister's proposals were equivalent to saying to Ulster :--' By organisation >xtending over three years -you have .alaced yourselves in." an, impregnable position. I, therefore, ldon't ask you :o submit now to. the National Parlia ment, but ask you to.destroy your or ;anisation, .leave. your fortress, and wvhen you are weak you, will be com Delled to do what you cannot be com pelled to do to-day."' Does -the Prime Minister consider that reasonable 1 asked Mr Bonar Law:. ".1-think the proposals are utterly futile. If the Government is unwilling to have a general election,-it can put the pro posals outlined to-day into a bill, and attach a- clause necessitating that the bill be submitted to the country for a plain yes or no. If the Government does this, I shall do everything pos sible to enable them to carry the refer endum n'into effect." ......

THE PUBLIC HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 March 1914
TIHE PUDLIC HEALTH. A; good wholesome public opinion is being Eteadily developed in connec tion with health matters and hygienic laws, but in this direction itis a re imarkable fact that progresss is'nvaii ably slow. Many old prejudices die slowly and there is more popular ignor an?e in connection with hygiene,than many will admit. The health 'Board is, however, endeavoring to.iiiake muni cipal authorities and the' public' gene rally recognise their. responisibilities,, both individually and collectively. At one time we looked on complaeeitlyh at common drinking cups at stieet "foib tains, railway stations, etc., but' now as a general rule these are shunnedtby: all buhit very careless people.' The oard is nos directing attention to.the filthy and dangerous practices which 'prevall at many public sports meeotigs..

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER A NEEDED IMPROVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 14 March 1914
0MBLBOURNE LETMEE.' A NEEDED IMPROVEMENT. During the recent hot weather (thn'ank goodness it is the recent hot weather) the travelling.publie, or at least a sec tion of it which has long distance journeys to make, have -had forced up. on them the necessity of some better provision being made for their comfort. Iced water is provided in the trains for those who care to indulge in it, but there are some people who do not carry drinking vessels with them in their lug gage, and who object to the common glass on hygienic and health grounds. All who travel either on tne Sydney or Adelaide express have, the advantage of tie dining car at their disposal, and this is so freely availed of that the doe partment shows a clear' financial gain. It may be contended that the running of a dining car on all long distance trains must involve the State railways in loss, and no doubt there are good ,,ounds for such an assertion. Such an equipment on all the trains is not necessary: but something more th...

NEW PROCESS OF STERILISING MILK. A new process of sterilising milk anud other foods has been intented by Mr A. Rutter, rccently scienco master at 'he Gordon College, Ocelong. The claim is made of the process that it destroys zornms by moans of nascent oxygen, and it is said to consist of adding min' inmised amounts of harmless peroxide of a metal to the food without producing :he elightest injurious action. The net e:rlt of the destruction of injurious mnicrobes in milk is said to give an arT ticle suited for infants and invalids, 'which can deteriorate slowly, even un. Icdr the worst conditions and the nutri. VSee qualities of which are unimpaired. Tle further claim is made that the rivoteids are practically unaffected, and, 'f afterwards precipitated, are throws down in a: fuely divided form emincutly adapted to the purpose of easy assimilar tiou and digestion. Dr. Bull, director of the bacteriological laboratory at the Melbourne University, states that if milki treated by the pro...
