SOLDIERS LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 29 August 1916

SOLDIEBS' LETTERS. Gunner W. J. Moroney, son of Mrs. J. M. Moroney, formerly of Braidwood, writesan interesting account of his trip to England to his mother. He says he was not impressed with Capetown, which is not as nice a place as Durban. The people of South Africa on the whole have not much time for the Australians ever since the Boer War. On June 29 the shores of Dalai, near Cape Verde (a small French coast ing station) were sighted. While we were taking on coal and water we were throwing money into the niggers would dive for it. It was funny to watch them. About half a dozen would dive together and jump on top of one another. They would always get the coin before it reached the bottom. The population of the place is mostly composed of niggers. We have to wear life belts and water bottles all day and night until we go to bed. We have a cou ple of alarms every day. We never know when there will be one. We might be at one end of tlui ship and then the boat's whistle will blow and...

AUSTRALIA'S POSITION. SUPPLEMENTARY STATE MENT. Mr. Hughes made a supplemen tary statemsnt to that delivered on Wednesday in the House of Representatives on Friday. 'Australia,' he said, 'was not only committed to assist Britain in the war, but upon the war is sues her existence depended. So far ws had done as well as any other portion of the Empire. Hitherto Great Britain had re frainsd from suggesting how many troops should be sent ;but cir\ cumstances had recently compel led her to tell us in plain words what we were expected to do. It remained Jor us to do it in the light of the position stated. If the proposals were adequate they ought to be unanimously accepted by the House. If not, they ought to be rejected anani niously. The' proposals were very definite. There was before the country a definite task. This task and this duty was clearly to pro 52,500 men in September, 16,500 in October, 16,500 in November, and 16,500 in December. They might assume that the demand for reinforc...

WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

WOOL REPORT. Tlie Australian. Mercantile li.ind and Finance Company, Ltd.. report : — ..? ' Th clip is now coming to hand, but owing to wet weather and heavy roads arrivals are much below normal quantities. The sales arranged from the 1.1th to 14th September are awaited with considerable interest, for with the present inflated values fluc tuations in the market are to bo expected, and with the position throughout tire world in such a turmoil as at present, is is more than probable that the coming season will see unforeseen diffi culties, and possibly sharp fluc tuations. Very satisfactory sales Were held in Melbourne this week, ths catalogues totalling 7000 bales, including some new clip wools from Riverina, for which there was excellent competition. Me dium and coarse crossbreds, how ever, were not so keenly sought after, and values were slightly below previous sales held in that centre.

Late War News. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

Late War News. French military critics point out that the British continue to nrogress towards Tbiepval, which ha Germans are not . likely to bold long, although they do, not- hesitate to sacrifice the elite of* the army in their efforts to re gain the ground. The British occupy all the dominating heights between Mouquet Farm and Cour celette. They thus dominate Thiepval, from where the only communications of the Germans are under constant British artil lery fire. The 'New York Times,' in a leader headed 'Greece and Bul garia Next,' says : — The eyes of the world will now 'be focussed on Greece and Bulgaria. It is' absolutely certain that Bulgaria has been approached with a view to detaching her from the Cen tral Powers. She has not met this approach with any final and conclusive refusal. Before long Austria and Germany may find all the Balkan States against them. Greece's hour is striking. She can only expect disaster and disgrace if she does not light on the side of the Allies.

MR. HUGHES'S STATEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 5 September 1916

MR. HUGHES'S STATEMENT. The position of Mr. Hughe.s and his Government in regard to the filling up of the gaps in Uie Australian forces at the seat of war was an extremely deli cute one. To have satisfied one section of the community it would have been necessary to declare for conscription without any reservation. On the - other hand, such a declaration would have unquestionably meant a disastrous split in the ranks of the political party which Mr. Hu ghes represents. That this lat ter was the main object at the back of the heads of many of the foremost barrackers for con scription seems to us to be be yond all manner of doube. Hence their keen disappointment at the proposal to refer the question to a referendum of the electors. It was inevitable, however, that whatever course was decided up on one side or the other would have been dissatisfied. It is even now as we write problematical whether the Labor party will be completely satisfied. There is no j reason why it should not be. T...

Items of Interest. German currency is now at a discount of 26 per cent. Its value is now lower than at any time since the war. One hundred and forty-seven Dutch intellectuals have appeal ed to neutrals to assist in es tablishing Belgian independence. If she were despoiled it would be sure to be a source of later war. It is officially stated that with a view to relieving distress among old-age pensioners the British Government is making a grant to meet the cost by al lowances not exceeding an ad ditional 2s 6d per week to those suffering .special hardship owing to the dearness of food an.l Oilier war conditions.
