TEMPESTS IN EUROPE. WINTER'S FINAL ASSAULTS. LONDON, Monday. It would seem as though winter had marshalled its forces for a final grand Iassault prior to retreating before the advance of spring. From east to west Europa has ex perienced extremely tempestuous wea ther within the past week, and the i very heavy falls of rain have created an alarming position in many places. Violent gale. continue to rage round I the coasts of Britain,' ahd the -wildest weather prevails in the 'Channel. The .Nowhaven to.Dieppe boat service has had to be suspended. The Belgian steamer Bucarest is 'in distresss off Pentre Head. Lifeboats have been launched to go to her assistance and life-saving rockets are in readiness. Some excitenment was caused at Ryde by the obsolete battleship Revenge breaking from her moorings and threat ening the craft in her vicinity. She was, -however, secured by tugs before any damage had been done. Heavy rains have caused floods in the Thames Valley, while many districts else...
BRITAIN'S NAVY. STILL LEADING. ESTIMATES FOR 1914-15. LONDON, Tuesday Night. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
BBITAIN'B NAVY. STILL LEADING. ESTIMATES FOR 1914.15. LONDON, Tuesday Night. The naval estimates for 1914-15 were considered in committee in the House of Commons to-day. Mr Churchill, First Lord of the Ad miralty, states that the policy laid down in 1912 had not been changed. Great Britain's fleet to-day was one third stronger in horse power than he fore. The 15-inch naval guns had proved their worth in range and preci sion, and he believed that they would also do it in length of life. Ten Bri tish ships had been armed with these guns. The Admiralty had three naval squadrons, as against the next power's two, completed. Three of the German squadrons would not be completed for some time, owing to the difficulty in finding men. Every delay on the part of Germany was being closely watched, and ad vantage taken thereof. It was intended, continued the First Lord, to place a squadron of eight battleships in the Mediterranean in 1915. Dealing with the defence of the Pacific, he said that th...
THE EVENING'S ENTERTAINMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
THE EVENING'S ENTERTAIN. MENTS. As the afternoon wore on, it was thought that the promised change in the weather would take place, and that rain would fall before the even ing's celebraOons were entered upon, but fortunately this proved not to be the case. About half-past seven o'clock, a large crowd of people as sombled in Barklv street to witness the torchlight procession prior to the holding of the entertainment at the Lyceum Theatre, and the show in the Town Hall, the proceeds from which go to the charitable cause. noth the Ararat and Stawell Brass Bands and the members of the Fire Brigade took part in this, and with the discharge of fireworks, the effect was a pleasing one. As mentioned else where, there was a packed attendance at the Town Hall, while at the other place of amusement the attendance was good. It was intended to have held a picture and band entertainment at the park last night, but owing to the Lyceum people not being able to get the engine- in working order in li...

THE SPORTS PIROORAMME. As mentioned above, the Sports Com mittee did not provide as elaborate a programme as usual. There was one big event for pedestrians, but the others were principally for children. This part of the programme was in the hands of Messrs A. S. Miller, G. Hans ford, H. M'Gibbony and T. L.

THEI . RECEIPTS. As the chief secretary of the fete (Mr T. J.

CHARITIES CARNIVAL AND CONlTINENTAL FAIR., ARARAT'S ANNUAL EFFORT. ,ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL FUN'C TION. The weather was all that could he desired yesterday, when the annual Carnival and Continental Fair, in aid of the charities of Ararat-the Ararat Hospital and Benevolent Asylum, the Ladies' Benevolent Society ard the Me chanics' Institute and Free Library- took place. The movement, so far as this year's function is concerned, was started about a couple of months ago, and although, as usual, the band of willing helpers was again small, they set to work in their usual persevering manner, with the result that when the eventful day arrived, everything was found to be in perfect order. No sooner had the preliminary arrange ments been entered upon, than a movement was set on foot to change the venue of the celebration.- As is well known, the carnivals up to this year had been held in the Recreation Reserve, when the principal items for the afternoon's enjoyment were foot racing events, for wh...
GOLD AT CORINDHAP. IMPORTANT ALLUVIAL FIND. 304 OUNCES AT 18 FEET DEEP. ONE SLUG OF 104 OUNCES. CORINDHAP, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
GOLD AT CORINDHAP. IMPORTANT ALLUVIAL FIND. 304-OUNCES AT 18 FEET DEEP. ONE SLUG OF 104 OUNCES. CORINDHAP, Wednesday. Considerable excitement was caused in the township to-day, when it became known that Messrs W. and A. Roberts, two local residents, had struck what would seem from present results to be a rich alluvial lead. The find is almost in the township, and the lucky prospec tors had only sunk from 15 to 18 feet when they came on the lead, and not only on the lead, but on the nuggets. They took out in all 304 ozs., includ ed in which was one slug of 104 ozs., two of 62 ozs each, one of 30 ozs, one of 15 ozs, and one of 12 ozs., besides 29 ounces of loose gold. The indications are said to be in fa vor of a continuance of the rich lead, and the prospectors have pegged out the ground for three.quarters of a mile along what they believe to be the trend of the gutter. Messrs Roberts Brothers.have been prospecting with varying luck for the past eighteen months. The small township ha...
DETAILS OF THE TRAGEDY. SHOTS FIRED IN OFFICE. FOUR TAKE EFFECT. PARIS, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
DETAILS OF TIHE TRAGEDY. SHOTS FIRED IN OFFICE. FOUR TAKE EFFECT. PARIS, Tuesday. M. Calmetto was about to leave his office when he was surprised to hear that Madame Caillaux had called. He'told the porter to admit her. Madame entered close upon the porter, and as M. Calmetto was rising from his chair she fired five shots from a Brown ing revolver. Four of the shots took effect, two entering M. Calmetto's body near the heart, and another entered his groin. Madame -Caillaux very quietly sub mitted to arrest. Afterwards she said, "I wanted to wound, not kill him. I regret the act, and will be pleased to hear if he is out of danger. All I wanted to do was to give him a lea.s son." ANCIENT ANIMUS. M. Calmetto was one of the most pro minent figures in the social and politi 'al life of Paris. His animus against H. Caillaux dates from the Moroccan incident in 1911. When M. Caillaux returned to office at a later period the "Figaro" daily attacked him politi cally and personally. It even acc...

The Ararat Citizens Band, which put in an appearance early, enlivened the proceedings with well played selec tions of music, and then the Stawe!l Brass Band, under Bandmaster Lovitt. arrived, and assisted in that part of the programme, consequently there was no lack of music during the afternoon.

THE PROCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
T- E PROCESSION.. Barkly street was simply . crowded ,with people from eleven o'clock in the morning, awaiting the procession. There was a very large ga thering of grown-up people, but young sters predominated everywhere, many of whom were dressed in comic attire, and perambulated about the streets ini all directions. The procession, though somewhat on the small side, was in keeping with past years, and unless, with the advancement of the town. more enthusiasm is shown by the busi ness people, in sending turnouts to swell the number, it will not be long before it will dwindle altogether into insignificance. The procession, which was marshalled by Mr Wallis, started from the Fire Brigade Hall punctually at noon. It was headed by the Ara rat Citizens Band, the members of which appeared for the first time in Ararat in their new uniforms, and en route to the park the band discoursed inepiriting music, which was greatly appreciated by the crowds of people who lined the streets. On this o...

DEFENCE OF PACIFIC. JOINT UNDERTAKING. CANADA NOT READY. LONDON, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 19 March 1914
DEFENOCE OF-PAOIFIO. JOINT UNDERTAKING. CANADA NOT READY. LONDON, Monday. Advices from Toronto indicate that the most influential members of the Cabinet favor a joint understanding between Australia, New Zealand, and the motherland regarding the defence of Imperial interests in the Pacific. However, until the Prime Minister (Mr Borden) is able to. control both Houses he considers it inexpedient for Canada to join any Imperial confer-I ence to consider the matter. There is no immediate likelihood of an agree ment on the naval question being drafted that will be acceptable alike to the followers of Mr Borden and the leader of the Opposition (Sir Wilfrid Laurier). (The Borden Ministry proposed to make a gift to the Imperial Govern-I ment of three Dreadnoughts, but the scheme was rejected by the Senate. Consideration is now being given to the possibility of a compromise being arriv. ed at.)

CABLEGRAMS. REUTER'S SPECIALB. SUFTFRAGETTES. FURTHER OUTRAGES. DRASTIC PUNISHMENT: .URGED FOR VANDALS. DEPORTATION RECOMMENDED. LONDON, Tuesday. Fresh outrages by the suffragettes were reported on Monday from many centres. As Dr. Devon, a Scottish Pri son Commissioner, was entering the Glasgow Prison he was assaulted by Suffragettes armed with horsewhips. In the melee one of the women was knocked down, but no arrests were made. The assault was apparently in revenge for the treatment of Mrs Pankhurst at Glasgow. A number of railway carriages belonging to the Mid land Company were set on fire by Suf fragettes at King's Norton (six miles from Birmingham) early on Monday morning. Six of the carriages were totally destroyed, while three others were badly damaged. There has been a large increase in the cases of Suffra gettes interrupting church services by chanting their own prayers. LONDON, Tuesday Night. One result of the continued vandal ism of the suffragettes is a general out cry in...
