Municipal. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Municipal. "Are you a candidate?" is a ques -uu one hears frequently just now. "Candidate for what?" is the general retort, and then it turns out that can didates are very much in evidence for the Federal Parliament, the State Parliament, the municipal Councils, Liberal Leagues, Labor Leagues, and a hundred and one other organisa tions which are displaying signs of activity at about this time. Matters municipal, on account of politics, are not showing out as pro minently as anticipated. The Pro gress Associations in St. Kilda, up to the present, at all events, are having quite a bitter experience of this fact. It is vaguely rumored that not a single candidate has so far thrown himself at the feet of one of the associations asking for their support in an en deavor to gain entrance into the new council. It has been hinted that a certain association, or certain mem hers thereof, waiited on a prominent citizen, and asked him to come out and do battle against some of the present councill...
Compulsory Training. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 20 June 1914
Compulsory Training. To the Editor. Sir,-Finding I am unable to obtain justice, I write, earnestly ap pealing to your readers to use their influence to protect Australian lads in various States from unjust treatment from the Defence Department. My own son at this moment lies in a soli tary, confinement cell in the Queens cliff fortress for no other misde meanour than loyalty to his parents' views of Christian teaching, and thus our cherished right of parental con trol has been forced from us. Our Tom, a lad of 16, was sent to Queenscliff on Wednesday last week for 21 days, for refusing to train under the Defence Act. My wife and I are members of the Society of Friends, and hold strong convictions against military matters, a principle held vital for centuries, in the religious views of the Quakers and others, and, however your readers may differ from me on this point, I am quite sure that as men and women they will agree that this is not the treatment for a boy of 16, even if he had ...
