WAR AS A BLESSING. HOW IT MIGHT DO GOOD TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 31 July 1914
WAR AS A BLESSING. HOW IT MIG!W DO GOOD TO AtJSTRAIIA. Mr. F. A. W. Globorne, in an ar ticle in the "Empire Review" on "Australia in Time of War," de clares that the minal and political results of a war in a serjous form to Australia would be beneficial. "While' it might destroy for a time political union, it would restore so cial union. It would apply the one sure test to individual character, re vealing both weakness and strength. Ia the presence of danger, 'capital and labour would be compelled to cease their insensate strife and shake hands. The working man would learn to regard his employer, not as an exploiter and tyrant, but as an ally and fellow-citisea. Popular idols of clay, too, would be cral ?wu. When Demos saw his former flat terers and deluders disappearing into cellars, or hastily embarking with well-filled pockets for America on the approach of danger, he would turn for deliverance to the real abil ity and patriotism whose services he had formerly rejected. The ostra...

Fletcher, who was cominn home from a social at 12.43 a.m., on"Thurs--ay, July 24, no ticed the fire, and he at once ran to the Fawkner Stores and ring up the fire brigade. In the meantime M Fletcher and Mr Moss went to the fire with buckets and axe, and succeeded in putting out the fire before the bri gado arrived. It seems strange that a fortnight ago t.hero was a. fire at the same place. 3r N.

On the second occasion Mr Mloss slipped and ricked his back and has been laid uip for the past week. 'The brigade did a smiart trip on the first occasion, but the second thty did better, and were on the scene in 11 minutes after being rung up, consid ering t.hey had over a mile to travel.

The Stadium Contoversy. To the Editor. Sir,--T?he Brunswick Council. at its last, meeting decided, to allow the ques tion of the crection of a boxing Sta dium to be referred to the ratepayers for decision. Cr. Jewell, who beloxigs to a party in the State House pledged to the in troduction of thile referendum, has giv en notice of his intention to move that such motion be rescinded, thereby pre venting the ratepayers. from express igi an opinion on so important a sub ject. We have often- been told of the inconsistency of Liberals; it would be difficult to imagine inconsistency worse than that of our member ou this ques t?ion. Again, Mr Jewell is not seeking re election as a councillor, but will retire next month. Other councillors 'must stand or fall by their votes; he alone accepts no responsibility in tihe matter. Surely then he is the very last who should seek to ire-open the question I .is should be left tol' the incoming councillors who through election are moare likely to expre...
