WARRNAMBOOL FESTIVITIES [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 16 May 1914

WARRNAMBOOL FESTIVITIES Perhaps t'he most popular late autumn rendezvous in Victoria is the picturesquely-situated town of Warr nambool during the week of its annual steeplechase race meeting and the Warr nambool Amateur Turf races. This year there appeared to be a larger influx of visitors than heretofore, as not only were all the hotels and boardinghouses crowded; but, in addition, rooms had been almost commandeel;e~d in every available home, and it was quite a common occurrence for members of one family to be domiciled in various parts of the town, one perhaps being in an (hotel, another in a boarding-house, and another making the best of a. shakedown on a tradesman's premises. Indeed, some visitors had to obtain accommoda tion in Camperdown and Colac, and travel each day by train or motor ,to the favored centre on the coast of the Southern Ocean. Some idea of the solid bookiny of rooms in advance man 'be gathered from the fact that accommodation could not be had for His Excellen...

DANGER OF INVASIOR. "AUSTRALIA MUST BE PREPARED." PACIFIC A STORM CENTRE. REMARKS BY GENERAL HAMILTON. AUCKLAND, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 16 May 1914

I I DANGER OF INVASIOR. "AUSTRALIA MUST BE PRE PARED." PACIFIC A STORM CENTRE. REMARKS BY GENERAL HAMILTON. AUCKLAND, Wednesday. General Hamilton, speaking at a civic welcome, said the question he.had bean asked on his tour was why, when we were expecting tlie millennium, were flourishing countries like Australia and New Zealand making' such extraordin ary preparations for war. Because of tlie shortening of distance by the ad vent of electricity, aeroplanes, fast stoamsliips and high explosives during the wist hundred years great nations 'iiad arisen in the Pacific. Other Hat ions were showing marvellous energy. Despite its.eiiarming name, the Pacific was even a more stormy centre than some less distinguished parts of tlie globe. It was conceivable that in future there would be greater and more terri ble convulsions than in the past. The Pacific was the meeting ground, not of nations, but of continents, and there it might be decided whether Asiatics or Europeans were going to guide ...

COMMONWEALTH AND MONOPOLIES. MINISTERS AND TRUSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 16 May 1914

COMMONWEALTH AND MONOPOLIES. ministers and trusts. Whilst members of the House of Representatives have been talking, long and loosely, of many things, housholders have been concentrat ing their attention on one—the in creased cost of living. Mr. Knibbs, the Commonwealth Statist, tells us that the first three months of 1914 saw yet another rise in the weekly bill which the wage earner and his -wife must face, unless they are prepared to forego some of the' comforts that they have been accustomed to regard as necessaries. Since that, the grocers have come to some sort of understanding which further swells the week's accounts ; the butcher's charges are higher, and the cold comfort offered to fathers with their quivers full of healthy, hungry children is, that to-day's prices are low com pared to those the future will bring. As regards meat, Labor asserts that the rise is due to the machinations of a Trust. On Wednesday, Mr. Groom, Minister of Customs, speaking to the censure motion fa...

In moving the adoption of the direc tors report for the half-year, Mr.Saltau said the meeting was merely a statutory one to comply with the provisions o-f the Companies Act, and 110 financial state ment would on this occasion be placed before the shareholders, but from what , G. directors knew" of the ngures which had now been duly audited, they felt perfectly satisfied in recommending that the Company pay a dividend equal to S per cent, per annum, and as far as they could see there would be ample provis ion for the usual writing off.

GOLF. This afternoon a men's singles sweepstake will be played on the Mortlake links commencing at 1.30. The tournament will be over a course of eighteen holes. The excellent rains of this week will freshen up the links, and enable players to indulge in prac tice in preparation for the opening day, which has been fixed for 30th inst. Although there is not a ladies tournament it is quite probable there will be a large bevy of lady enthusiasts putting in practice. The golfing season as far as the Mortlake club is concerned should prove eminently successful. In the club's new president (Mr. T. M'Kellar, of South Shadwell) it possesses a warm-hearted supporter With such an enthusiast at the head of affairs the club should hum this season.

SHOCKING MOTOR FATALITY. ON THE WARRNAMBOOL ROAD, NEAR TERANG. MR. ELLIOT SHANNON KILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 16 May 1914

SHOCKING MOTOR FATALITY. ON THE WARRNAMBOOL ROAD, NEAR TERANG. MR. ELLIOT SHANNON KILLED. Mr. Elliott Strachan Shannon, of the well-known Geelong woolbrok ing firm, Messrs Strachan, Murray and Shannon, met with a sad fatal I accident at Terang on Thursday afternoon, at about half past three ' o'clock. Mr. Shannon, accom panied by his wife, was motoring , in one of the firm's cars along the ! road towards Warrnambool, and when near the Presbyterian Manse the steering-gear failed. At this spot there is a steep embankment on the left-hand side of the road, protected by a post and rail fence, with a bluestone culvert about midway between the ends of the fence. The car appears to have left the road between 25 and 30 yards from the culvert, and to have swerved towards the fence. The brakes were apparently down, to judge from the marks left by the wheels ; but the car continued a diagonal course from the metal till it struck the fence two panels dis tant from the culvert, and then collided...

RAILWAY SERVICE. WESTERN DISTRICT LINE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 16 May 1914

RAILWAY SERVICE. ♦ WESTERN DISTRICT UNE. For some time the Geelong Chamber of Commerce and other bodies have been agitating for the 4.22 p.m. train from Melbourne to the Western district to run an hour later. They contend that this would better meet the interests of the majority of travellers, ..par ticularly those of the Geelong dis trict. At a meeting of the Chamber on Monday there was a letter from the Commissioners, stating that they had decided not to fall in with the request. They considered that in this matter the people at the Port Fairj' end of the line had a right to special consideration, and the 4.22 train suited them best. It would, therefore, not be altered. The question of the frequent delays which occurred on the Hue between Geelong and Melbourne, with all trains, was also before the Chamber, which considers that this continued annoyance will not be obviated till the line is duplicated. There was a deputation to the Commissioners on the matter recently, but the Commi...

JUSTICE IN JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 16 May 1914

JUSTICE IN JAPAN. Truly, a. wonderful country is tin: Kingdom ui' the Mikado, and so ancient, is its history that Japaueso soveroignn arc knuw.irto have ruled and nourished .several hundred years bel ore the birth of Christ. it is a remarkable fact that, throughout countless ayes, from time immemorial until now, there has been but one ruling dynasty in Japan. The Kmpentr of to-day belongs to the same loyal family as did his predecessors who lived B.C. The Japanese arrangements for trying a prisoner are very different from ours. With us the .judge is a judge, and an impartial one; in Japland the occupant of the seat of 31131100 combines, as he does in France, the functions of judge and prosecuting . counsel. He cross examines severely, ami from the pris oner extracts the minutest details con cerning his antecedents. Is'ofc that the past history of the captive, if he is a ne 'er-do-well, is unknown. Par l'rom it. In Japan there is a wonderful system of espionage which aims at thwartin...
