Labor Leaders Unite with Business .People in Recruiting Campaign Only Small Attendance at Pre liminary Meeting. Prominent members of the Rich mond branch of the Political Labor Council stood side by side with lead ing business men of the district at a meeting in the Richmond Town Hall on TIursday night, and agreed to com bine with a view of obtaining as many local enlistments as possible in the new recruiting campaign. The Mayor (Cr. A. Fear) presided over an attendance which made up in enthusiasm what it lacked in num bers. Mr. F. G. Tudor, M.H.R., said that he had willingly responded to the in vitation of the Director of Recruiting that he should act as chairman of the Yarra campaign. He believed that a sufficient number of recruits could be obtained by persuasion without resort ing to compulsion. It was their duty to organise thoroughly and urge eligible men to enlist, but he would be against any form of economic com pulsion. A Voice: Why refer to it? Mr. Tudor; Because it has be...

Mr. Cotter Expected to Win on First Count in Labor Selection-Poll Will Be Taken Next Saturday at Odd fellows' Hall. Interest in the Labor pre-selection for the representation of Richmond in the Legislative Assembly is stimulat ed by the closing of nominations. As the "Guardian" announced some time ago, Mr. Cotter's opponents will be MIr. J. M. Sheehan and Mr. J. J. McDonald. Under the rules which govern the conduct of Labor pre-se lection ballots, no addresses or state ments of views can be made by can didates, nor must their supporters at tempt to canvass for votes. There are, however, "wheels within wheels." It is generally understood that the opposition to Mr. Cotter arises from his attitude on the Early Closing of Hotels Act. HIe voted in favor of six o'clock. Though nothing definite can be stated, it is believed by leading supporters of Mr. Cotter that there is a mutual affinity between many of the supporters of Mr. McDonald and Mr. Sheehan as to how their second preference vot...

"Under the Auspices of Richmond Council" Will Be Hall~mark on Future Displays of Gymnasium Girls-Any Rebuffs Will Be Prompt. ly Attended to by Councillors in Official Capacity. Girls of the Richmond Municipal Gymnasium are not likely to again suffer the disheartening experience that recently befell them in connec tion with the entertainment at St. Ignatius' Hail. Tn future the council will exercise full authority for the appearance cf the girls as a mulnicipal cla.s. If bhe members of the class desire to appear at entertainments in a brivate capacity they are, of course, perfectly free to oI so. ConrLcillors are, naturally, hopeful for the future success and extension of their enter prise and are fully regardful of their responsibilities. The municipal gynm nasium is a child of their creation, and, like doting parents, they want to see to it that never again will there be any happening likely to discourage the "gym." girls or boys. Cr. Barcelo brought the matter up at the council me...

Bad Man Role Suits Wm. S. Hart. Belgiumn's Story and Tense World Dramas at the Richmond Theatre. . WiVm. S. Hart, Louise Glaum, and other Triangle favoriLes figure in the Return of Draw Egan, to be screened at Richmond Theatre, corner Glea dell-street, opening at the matinee on Monday. It is a typical Hart play, and the. hard-faced man from the West.is in .his element in the cowboy role. Hart has reinstated Western films in public favor-with a differ ence. His cowboy .films are not a succession of impossible happenings with. a succession of break-neck gal lops and little else. They are tense dramatic stories with a real heart-in terest. ,If. there is.. gun-play, it is car ried out with such realism and adroit ness that it keeps audiences on the edge of their seats. To this order be longs the Return of Draw Egan. The independence of Belgium, a 3500ft. production, is as infdrmative as it is entertaining.. Starting with the earl iest .days- or the history of Belgium as anation, it proc...
OPEN COLUMN GYM. GIRLS' DISPLAY. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
OPEN COLUMN GYM. GIRLS' DISPLAY. (To the Editor.) Sir,-I read with interest in your last issue of the "Guardian" an ac count of Father Brennan's action can celling at the last moment a display to be given by the girls of the Rich mond Municipal Gymnasium at a concert held in St. Ignatius' Hall on 8th inst. Father Brennan stated that he had no option but act as he did once the objection was made. That might be so, but i cannot understand why he should be governed by a few prudish-minded persons when hun dreds of his faithful would have wel corned the display. To Mr. Bennett's terse comment, "We regard it as an absolute insult," I add an emphatic "Amen." The girls of the gymnasium and their instruc tor, Mr. Bennett, deserve the whole hearted sympathy of every clean, wholesome-minded citizen. These girls, filled with th3 desire to help a good cause and at the same time dis play to young growing girls of the semi-invalid, hot-house type (their number is legion) the benefits derived from...
Light and Heat Let in on Council's First Meeting for New Year—Daylight Saving Does Not Prevent Them Going Home in Dark. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Light and Heat Let in on Council's First Meeting for New Year-Day light Saving Does Not Prevent Them Going Home in Dark. Richmond Council has not yet ex pressed a collective opinion on the ad vantages or disadvantages of the Day light Saving Law, but no amount of daylight saving would prevent the council, as at present constituted, from going home in the dark. They are night-birds by nature. Commenc ing at 8 p.m. on Monday night, with the sun still high in the heavens, the all-too-powerful electric globes were lighted an hour later, and councillors sat on till 1 a.m. It can hardly be described as a good augury for the New Year, but much business had ac cumulated since councillors last shook hands on the town hall steps in the midst of an early morning December rain-storm, and some rather import ant matters came under consideration. Strong words of condemnation were used by Cr. Bell in upholding the complaint of a soldier's wife who al leged that her rentlord, Mr. J. W. Gip son, had ...

Not Her Fault. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
Not Her Fault. The express was approaching a rail way bridge that spanned a deep river, and a stout old lady in one of the compartments showed signs of ner vousness. As the train went roaring across the structure she did not speak a word, but seemed to be holding her breath. "There," said a gentleman . in a neighboring seat, "we are over it safe ly." The old lady heaved an explosive sigh. "Well," she said, "if we had gone to the bottom I should have died with a clear conscience, for it wouldn't have been my weight that did it. I .bore up so that I really made the train lighter, than it would have been with out me!" Preacher: Let everyone in the congregation who desires to go to the Better Land stand up. Almost everybody rose. Preacher: Now let everybody who w-ants to go to the other pla~e otand up. ,: No oiie rose, . . ." After-- aminute or- two a man :in the back seat slowly got up and said: . : "'. "I don't particulkrly want to go to the other place, but.I a._m. wlling .o stand up...

SOLDIER PRINCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 20 January 1917
SOLDIER PRINCESS. The startlng discovery has just been made that a Russian soldier re cently wounded in battle in Volhynia and now lying in a military hospital at Kharkoff is none other than Prin cess Volonsky. The story of the Princess, who is only twenty-two, is at once tragic and romantic. Her husband, Prince Volonsky, was killed by the Germans early in the war, and not long afterwards her father and brother were also killed. The Princess, who is of sturdy fig ure and has much determination of character, thereupon resolved to join the army as a volunteer. After cutting her hair short and dressing as a man, she enlisted in the ranks. Not until she had fought for some months on the south-western front was her sex discovered. She was then sent to Kieff to be discharged from the army, but suc ceeded in eluding the vigilance of her guards and returned to the fighting-line, where she was wound ed. e
