How We Destroy "U" Boats. SOME STARTLING REVELATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

SOME STARTLING REVELATIONS. How We Destroy "U" Boats. (By Reginald L,. Foster, of the New York "World.") When the war began on August 1, official figures were at hand as to the number of German submarines. They totalled just forty-five—twenty-seven submarines built and commissioned, and eighteen building. To turn out a submarine in time of peace takes two years. Therefore, it might be presumed, no more could be finished up to this present date. But more were finished. How? Because the intensive Germans began specialis ing on submarines and before long wore finishing them in nine months' time, scores of them—perhaps two or three a week. This was achieved by working in three-hour shifts of fresli men, twenty-four hours a day. But there is something else needful besides the submarines to make this ) kind of naval warfare underseas suc j cossful, and that is a crew for her. [ The submarine creiw is the highest type of specialised fighter that this war has developed. More work is require...

CORRESPONDENCE. BARRAPORT FARMERS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 23 March 1916

CORRESPONDENCE. BARRAl'ORT FARMERS. To the Editor. Sir,—I would thank you for a small spacc in your paper, which is so widely circulated throughout the district, to criticise the action of the farmers of the Barraport district in their action in starting a general store or depot. There is no mistake about it that they arc starting this store in direct opposition to the storekeepers of Boort, at Barraport. Now, farmers of Barraport district, I might tell you that your principle is a hungry one, and, under these circuinstanccs will not be a success. As one who has followed farming pursuits I will most dccidedly stick up for the general storekeeper. The friend of the farmer is undoubtedly the storekeeper. He proves it day in and day out. What about the drought ? No doubt it has passed, but where would the majority of fanners be to-day if the storekeeper had not come to his rescue ? The question is easily answered—in the bankruptcy court. Let the farmers of Barraport district come -ind ...

London Letter. Carmelite House, Saturday, January 29. At the time of writing this letter London is enjoying perhaps the most wonderful January weather we have . ever known. We are having days of abundant sunshine anil of solt, warm air. The trees are beginning to ehow signs of buds, and the light green points on the black-branches in the parks and in the squares come to us as the premature heralds of spring. We have let our fires go low and in some cases we have let tliem out altogether, and we sit during the day with our windows wide open enjoying the weather. The men who can drop offices and work do so, for a few hours " 'during the day at least. The touch of 6pring is in the air; spring, with its spell of magic and mystery. Tlic housewife, aroused by the unfamiliar sunshine which allows up every cor ner of her rooms, is tempted to star: her spring cleaning at once. The city merchant closes his books early •» to get for ft few hours out of town. London in Sunshine. On Sunday morni...

Boort Cemetery Trust. An Awkward Position. HAS THE acm'complleo WITH? In every community in Australia there is such a body known as "Cemetery Trustees." Tlicy arc appointed by the Govcrnor-in Counci!, and have a most serious and solemn obligation to perform on behalf of the public. So serious is the onus of responsibility that our legislators have seen fit to place an Act upon the statute book known as the "Cemeteries Act," whereby such trustees can be guided in the per formance of their respective duties. On no account whatever must this Act be infringed ; it must be carried out to the letter. What about the Boort Cemetery Trustees ? There must be such a body. Who is the secretary that is supposed to guide the trustees ? Since the former sentence has been written, wc have been informed that Mr Robert R. Irving is the secre tary. Why docs he not protect the trustees in his secretarial capacity, together with their good name and position, and see that the Act is complied with in ever...

Public Notices, WE DO NOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINGS. Treating a tooth that has to bo filled is an operation demanding great care and patience.

with which is incorporated the Boort Standard. KoronjValc Lancc. and Quam batook Herald. I Interesting reading matter will be : found on our sixth page. Thursday, Maich 23. TRADE WITH THE ENEMY. Mr. Fisher, speaking at the Man sion House, London, the other day, said :—"Wc should not endeavor to crush freedom-loving Germans, of whom there arc many, but should assist them to become organised in such a manner as to enable them to live in freedom." There were mut terings in the audience, many of those present thinking the High Commissioner "unduly lenient." And, at first sight, his utterance seems to be in striking contrast to the Prime Minister's bold denuncia tion of trade with the enemy. But, i possibly, the contradiction is appar-1 cnt rather than real. Mr Fisher put one side of the issue—the side which, whilst wc arc engaged in a life and death struggle, is least im portant. No doubt, in the uncabled portion of his speech, he dwelt on the necessity of crushing German militarism, no...
