THE SUBMARINE WAR AGAINST WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 26 September 1914
THE SUBMARINE WAR AGAINST WAR. (By CHARLES FERGUSON. Brooks Adams, in his "Law of Civilisation ' and Decay," developed tbe interesting thesis that civilisa tion advances only in those his torical periods in which: the agen cies of military defence overbalance for a time the agencies of belli gerent attack. That is to say, the human race has always found a respite from . destructive warfare-a breathing space in which to develop the constructive arts and sciences whenever peace-loving nations have found means for making assaults upon their peace so difficult and dangerous to the assailants that the "game has not been worth, the ' candle. j In the light of this principle the modern development of submarine | fighting-craft deserves the respect/ ful attention of peace societies. - An immense amount of expert tes timony . is accumulating to the ef fect that submarines of the Holland ? type are likely to prove so dreadful to Dreadnoughts that the ponderous naval armaments -that are sappin...

VOLUNTARY WORK FOR TROOPS AT AND GOING TO THE FRONT [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 26 September 1914
VOLUNTARY - WORK FOR TROOPS AT AND GOING TO THE-FRONT Accept anything that is of value -all sorts of clothing, foods com forts, books tobacco There is hardly a business "which does not supply something useful. As Aus tralia grows wool and . its mills manufacture flannel, it is better to make woollen goods than to use cotton stuffs, all of which have to be imported and so are much -more expensive here thau in liurope or America The workers in those countries can supply these more easily and cheaply than in Aus tralia All articles ''must be carefully cut,' made and finished. .Kongh :seanis irritate the skin and bad finishing soon gives way and simply wastes materia'. Do not trv to make great number-, far better send a few well made articles than many- badly made ones-. In war time 'and at busy hospitals there is no'time to sort and pick out various sized articles, so all shouiu ue made large and loose. They can then be worn by nearly all soldiers. ?

The Herr Ober Controlleur at the Custom" House came forward, and, much to his in-, dignation, was received in a 11011- ^ chalnnt- way. The Yankee.... was . ungenllomanly enough not to get ' out of his carriage or even to take I off his hat. ' The Herr Ober sharp- I ]y demanded the keys of the tour ist's trunks, which his subordinate began handling roughly. * "Here, hands off!" shouted the Yankee. "I didn't, come from the United States of America to be. con trolled by you. Put those trunks back. I'll not go through you at all. I'll turn back. I'm in no hurry, and don't care for losing. ,a day.
