TURKEY AND AMERICA [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

TURKEY AND AMERICA The Syrna incident may be said 10 have ciosed. \V ken the United States cruiser Ten uta ae&see was about to land men ■at - Smyrna, is Aaiafej c T'JSk&yj . J^5t., week, it was fired on from the Turk ish forts. The matter caused some excitement in America, and those wiio are always ready for war were inclined to make t'he most of the aifair. President Wiil&on, however, kept his head, and waited for 'parti culars, and it has been proved that he was right, for Captain Decker, of the Tennessee, now reports that the firing by the Turks was not a hos tile act. It was merely intended to give warning to prevent the Tennes ! see from entering the harbour at Smyrna, which Turkey had declared closed. The stoking of the Maine should have been a lesson to America on the unwisdom or jump ing at a conclusion in matters of this kind. "Remember tfle Maine" was the watchword for tne war against Spain; yet, when the vessel was raised, long after the war, it wa...

DECLARATION OF THE POLL. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

DECLARATION OF THE POLL. The declaration of the poll for Bulla took place at Bacchus Marsh on Tuesday. Mr W. Grant, J.P., returning officer, announced the figures, as follows i— Geobge Fbancis McGowak (O.) 2246 Andbew Bobebt Bobebtson (M,) 3689 Majority for Eobertson, 1443. Mr Eobertson said he felt, when election maicatWYHat tnVfeiect^s cfeSii'e'i sane legislation, rather than the experi ments offered by the Labor party. This was no time to make violent changes. The poll had baen a very small one, less than 55 per cent. The cause was a com bination of circumstances—the war, the drought, and the Federal elections being held so recently. The electors sometimes got sick of politics. The Liberal sup porters did not go to the poll as well as their opponents. Having been returned by such a substantial majority, he went back to Parliament free and independent. | Mr McGowan thanked the supporters who followed him. Had the election been fought on the same grounds as the Federal elections he...

THE STATE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

THE STATE ELECTIONS. Owing to the war and tho drought there was a falling off in tho Stat<» elections which were held on Thurs day last, with the result that, though the rolls, which now includu the women's vote, were larger, there was a reduced poll. The total re sult does not males any appreciable difference in the position of parties. There was a close contest in East Melbourne, where Mr. Farthing de feated Sir Henry Weedon on the sec ond c5unt. Owing to the strong organisation, Labour led in Gis borne, New Gisborne, and Riddell, but there was a falling off in Sun bury, Werribeo, and other places, which gave Mr. Robertson the sub stantial majority of 1163. The postal votes not, of course, af fect the result. As we anticipated, Mr. Cameron has displaced Mr. Ar gyle for Dalhousie, though the old member made a good fight. The fol lowing are amongst the details of the polling :— Kyneton.—Arglye, 769; Cameron, 774. Lancefield—Argyle, 127; Came ron, 271. Ilomsey (within the ...

WAR WEWS. GERMAN DISSENSION [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

WAR WEWS. GfcKMAiS DliSoENtil'JN ivuuiours oi Uavarian discontent are so persistent that it ; would appear there must be some ca>uae for them. In the earlier j stages of the campaign something like a mutiny occurred amongst the I Bavarians serving in Belgium, and now Dutch newspapers ailirxn that discontent among the Bavarian offi cers is increasing. The Bavarians protest that they are being saonlliced by the Kaiser, and are always placed in the front of the firing line. They point to the fact that, out of 300,000 men sent by Bavaria to the war, only a third survive to-day. In the war against France in 1870-1 a similar complaint was mads by the Bava rians, and though by this time thsy ; should be accustomed to Prussian ! domination, it is evident that there are still difference^ between the Bavarian and the Prussian.

NO MORE EULOGIES [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

NO MORE EULOGIES — American editors are, as a rule, fond of blunt talk, but none of them can beat the editor of the "Call" in rubbing the ginger in. This is how he does it in a recent issue The average country editor is a chump. He will submit to the abuse of some old foul-tongued reprobate in the (jommunity for years, and when death, in all its merciful kindness, removes the worthless old carcase to a place that has possibly been eager and yawning for years to even up his devilish score, Mr Editor, in laudatory language and half-column space, will bour out his sympathy touohingly— yes, pathetically. Not so with the "Call." The next old reprobate that shuffles off may die with this troubled fact on liis mind, that we are going to everlastingly lambaste him as soon as we have proof that his grouchy life has been snuffed out, and he is on his way home. Somo of you old reprobates, be you one or many, had better take due notice, and oome in and make good with us before the last oall, fo...

GISBORNE SHEEP DIP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

GISBOJRNE SHEEP DIP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE. Sib,—I aee by the shire balance sheet that the receipts for the year are I £27/12/7, and the expenditure £29/6/0; a loss of £1/13/5 for the year. In the | face of this I would like to ask how was the council justified in reducing the 1 charge from l-.Jd to l£d per head? There is nothing in the balance sheet about a sinking fund, and if there were there ia evidently nothing to pay into it.

AN ASTOUNDING PROPOSAL. To the Editor of "The Gisborne Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

AN ASTOUNDING PROPOSAL, To the Editor of "The Gisborne Gazette." : Sir,—There have been many sur prises, actions, and happenings dur ing the long years of trouble in con nection with the Riddell-Sunbury water supply, but it has been left to the chairman of the Sunbury Water Trust to "eclipse all these. In the accepted parlance of the day, (he has supplied "the limit," or "dead finish," and is certainly entitled to •'the cake" for downright audacity, total disregard for justice in this matter, and want of honest consi deration fon the feelingB and rights of others. in this long-protracted dif ficulty. There is a shortage in the Water supply at Sunbury. This was anticipated whenever a dry summer occurred, as there is no provision made for a storage supply. Now, to get over the difficulty, the chairman of the Trust, Crnr. Johnstone, has most' unfairly and impertinently pro posed that the compensation water legally due to the Riddell's Creek from Sunbury main shall be drawn upon to incr...

PROPOSED SELF-DENIAL TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 4 December 1914

PEOPOSED SELF-DENIAL TO THE EDITOR OF THE GAZETTE Sib,—May I write these few words to the little boys and girls who are taking part in the schools' picnic on Wednesday, 9th inst. To-day there are thousands of little Belgian children crying for food— little shivering, crying mites, who think one picce of bread—hard, black, and dry —a '■ Sunday School toast." Each of the little ones can be fed for 7 days on 7/-, 3 meals a day. l!ou hare collected £14 I believe, and if you deny yourselves that one happy day, which you have all so looked forward to, you would be able to give breakfast, dinner, and tea to 20 of those starring children for two weeks. Think of it every day when you say your ' grace, that for IS days, 20 little mites will be thanking the "Grood God" (at 3 good meals) for the picnic which the little Gisboane children so generously 'gave up for them. It will be hard, children, to give it up and I daresay ; some of your parents will say it is quite unnecessary, but think the i...

"Tha Society of Angola." Some time ago a midwife of Wars sir, Skublinskaya bj name, was brought to justice, with several of her coadju tors, for the crime of killing illegiti mate children. The •woman and her helper ; called themselves "The Society of Angels," aud engaged in the atrociouo < work of "dispatching the little ones to heaven," of course for a certain consid eration paid them by the unfortunate mothers or their friends. This fact aroused a discussion in all the Russian papers on the fate of illegitimate chil dren in that country. The mortality of such wument asylums in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Those asylums keep the children only for a short time, ^nd send them to villages to be raised in the families of peasants. There they die in large numbers. But the number of such children as are "dispatched" directly by professional murderers like Skublinskaya can hardly be estimated. Only about three weeks ago a similar 'Society of Angels" was discovered in Vilna. The ...
