General satisfaction was expressed throughout the electorate of Jika Jika at the announcement early in the week that Mr. J, G, Membroy, M.LA,, had been selected as an honorary Minister by the Peacock Cabinet.

A SUGGESTION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914

A SUGGESTION. To the Editor. Sir,-As the Northcote and Ileidel berg councils have had the idea brought before them of erecting a really good bridge over the )Darebin Creek, would it not be advisable to at once seriously consider tihe idea of connect ing the two suburbs by an electric tram system, and then carry out their roadt making and bridge-building, so it would be suitable for such nmeans of transit betwreen the two places? If this is not done it will mean that ill tlhe course of a \very little time after thle road is made it will have to be torn up again, and thus cause extra expelnse, as is tile case ill other suburbs where thie electric tram has been installed. Also, if this course is not adopted, and the road well made (in thle ordinary way) it will mean turning over tle big tratlic, which is sure' to develop, to sonic! motor-busll company, whose heavy buses will soon pilay havoc with a newly-numtu thorough fare, -Yours, &c , (Ei..

AN ADMIRAL'S WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914

AN ADMIRAL'S WARNING. THE review by the King at Spithiad on Monday of Great Britain's .naval forces, when 200 warships made an iron clad avenue of forty miles in length, might well recall the warning against pride of power in Kipling's recessional -"Lest we forget, lest we forget." The review represented the last words of the steel and iron age in the shape of offensive and defensive weapons of maritime warfare. Costing nearly three millions apiece, the latest iron clads embody tremendous striking power, combined with great speed and mobility. It certainly would appear as if the boast that Great Britain rules the waves was founded on enduring lines. Yet a feeling of dismay has been caused by the recent pronouncement of Admiral Sir Percy Scott to the effect that the day of battleship is over, and that naval warfare in future will be carried on almost entirely by the instrumentality of the submarine and the sea-plane. With a flotilla of submarines, Sir Percy says that he would underta...

QUESTION OF PROFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914

QUESTION OF PROFIT. "One call often do more by diplom nacy than by brandishing a club," said a man in the smokeroom of a Mid. land Counties club recently, "Some years .ago my next door nelghbors on either side took the vain notion into their heads that keeping fowls was as profitable as running a distillery. They bought buff Orplng tons and Rhode Island reds at famine prices, and awaited results with an ear-to-ear smile of optimism. "Their fences were not exactly hen proof, and my garden suffered. One morning my begonia bed was wreck ed, the next my carnations were ruin ed; but, though naturally cross, I re frained from challenging the poultry farmers to a couple of rounds in the woodshed.

ONE OF PRESTON'S CITIZENS MR. HENRY HANNA. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 25 July 1914

ONE OF PRESTON'S CITIZENS. MR. HENRY HANNA. One of Preston's best known and re spected residents, in the person of Mr. Henry Hanna, has recently removed from the district. It is nearly a quarter of a century since Mr. Hanna came to Preston to take charge of the local State School, by a singular coincidence his father at one time having been head teacher of the same school. For many years Mr. Hanna held this position, then at the time of the great depres sion and financial crisis following the bursting of the land boom, Mr. Hanna had given to him the head mastership of South Preston and Prince of Wales' Park schools in addition, so that for some time he had the three schools to superintend, which must have been a great mental and physical strain. Each of these schools to-day is in charge of a capable head teacher, with a full roll of scholars. Between 4 and 5 years ago Mr, Hanna was offered and accepted the position of head master of Gold street school, Clifton Hill, one of the large...
