To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922

To the Editor. A movement is afoot to divide Ballarat Diocese into two, the new Diocese to have Geelong for centre. Good and well. But be fore this can be accomplished 'a very considerable sum of money must be raised for endowment, so that the new Bishop may have a suitable income. The non Anglicans have some advantages here. Methodists can create a new district, and' Presbyterians a new presbytery without raising a penny. When every minister is a bishop, it's cheaper and quite satisfactory in the outcome. The Anglican system is aristocratic; the Methodist and Presbyterian systems are democratic. You pay your money and you take. your choice. Figures show that the American Republic costs as much as the constitutional - monarchy of Britain;- but so far as ecclesias tics are concerned the non-Angli can bodies have no minister who does not draw his living from 4 parish, and no minister higher in. rank than another. Of course, there are officials at headquarters, but they have no authori...

BY THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922

BY THE WAY. A Scot is creditea with saying e that the devil was dead, but the business was still carried on by a committee. A glance at the cables suggests ,that the world's business is now done by confer ence. The Irish Conference finished its work, the Washington y Conference is in sight' of the end, f the Cannes Conference has is y sued in the overthrow of the o Briand Cabinet, and now we are promised the Genoa Conference 1 in a couple of months. It is easy E to sneer at this zeal for confer s ences, but what better thing could - be than for representatives of various nations to meet round a r tableand talk over their differences? , War itself usually ends in con ference to discuss a settlement; it is much better to hold a con ference to prevent war. Work ers have congresses and caucuses, churches have synods and assem blies, husband and wife have con ferences (the wife with two votes being in the chair). According to Milton there are conferences in the nether regions and the upp...

Percy Bladen, :OB.EB President of.the Confer ence ! Larige congregations attended throughout, and the celebration proved the most successful held for some years.

(Written in the Year 2,001 A.D.) [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 27 January 1922

(Written in the Year 2,001 A.D.) Ancient history-is known to us only througli the -ca-ful research work ,of historians, which sanme work is not mere copies of an cient- writings, but more .a care ful study', 6f :fossils, a knowledge of human'- inture; and a little im agination to fill in the gaps. It is by investigation on these lines :that I, the present histor ian, am enabled to present to you an account of a certain festival gathering held on Phillip Island about 'a century ago. You will perhaps have heard that in' those days the ,:male population spent their winters 'playing a game they called football. It appears that the meeting we- are considering wias held:in a hall out Ventnor way, and that the object of the meeting: was 'to present ! to the Ventnor 'teanm 'the premiership shield- for .the season 19--.

BY THE WAY. HAPPY POSTAL STAFF. Mr WVcbster, a P.M.G. who 'wrote alleged poetry, and at.pub lic expense set up a Postal Insti tute, has bcqueathed to Mr. Poyn ton a legacy of doubtful value., To ke6p uip Mr.: Webster's poetic in spiration, .Mr. Poynton has to keep oil spending £3200 of public money. per annum to provide. in struction for 300 employes, for whose benefit also a whole floor of a large buildirig has bcct set apart. Forced to defend this huge expenditure of public money, the P.M.G. says it will turn out- a highly trained, expert, and effici ent staff in all branches of the ser vice. Perhaps, but when a tea cher is appointed to a school the Government does not dream of paying for continuing his educa tion. When an accountant takes his place in the public service he is expected to know his busilness: What right has a postal cmploye to get lessons in English at the expense of the taxpayer? \Vhen a parson'is appointed to a-church it is not expected that the congre gation wil...

AMONGST THE PUGILISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 February 1922

AMONGST THE PUGILISTS. By "Stratiinore." As a pastime, on the Peninsula, boxing is a rare novelty, hnd the best- we get in the lini of the noble art is a bit of- a free fight! But, there are many local sports who. regularly visit the fights in the city y tthe smellful Yarra, and, to' meet their wishes, I pro pose to make boxing a feature of these notes 'in the future; After having outpointed Tom O'Brien in Mebourne, Harry Stone hopped over to Brisbane, and fought Bert Bradley in the glaring sunlight of the land of bananas and pineapples. The bruis ing specialist won by a street, but the referee gave Bradley the verdict! The house was hostile to Stone, too. I for- one feel sure Harry Stone indulged in more than his prayers! Frank Burns having vamoosed ro me via uart in pursuit of gore, Charlie Ring is putting in his spoke for the middle-weight championship. Ring is only 19 years of age, and resides at New market.

HAS GERMANY REPENTED? [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 3 February 1922

HAS GERMANY REPENTEDli Good people tell us we shouhl forgive our enemies, but.they for get that we are not commanded to do so till these enemies repent. Has Germany given any sign of regret, a single sigh of: remorse, one solitary tear for all the blood she was' the means of shedding? Will all great Neptune's ocean cleanse her hands? At this moment she. is busily engaged in capturing British trade every where. Lord Northcliffe said re cently that "He had seen German wireless tapped daily during voy ages, disclosing misleading lies concerning the Washington Con ference, affairs in Egypt and In dia, and the conditions of British trade. Probably the money fhat should be paying the reparations bill is devoted to propaganda hos tile to the British Empire. A great German company is about to construct a canal from the North Sea to the Black Sea. When Germany is beaten in war she will get another wcapjon and try to beat us in trade. She is no more repentant than a crocodile. Herr WVirth cab...
