FEDERAL ELECTIONS. MR WISE'S SPEECH. CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 17 July 1914
FEDERAL ELECTIONS. ;-4-«--- MR WISE'S SPEECH, CONSTITUTIONAL AMEND S ' M NTS. Auother matter was the amendment of the Constitution, which all who, as ir Huughes says, " see the light," are agreed is necessary. Sir William Ir vine was as strong as anyone to give the Federal Parliament full industrial powers and full control over trade and com merce, but he refused to support the first proposals bccause they were coupled with others he disapproved of, and when on the second occasion they were brought forward in separate bills, he said he would not vote for them because the Labor party was in power. But the L.bhr party is not in power to-day Sir William Irvine is, and we are now to have a general election, so why should not these matlers have been considered and put before the people? If an amendment was necessary in regard to these matters before, it was ten times more necessary now, since the decision of the Privy Council in the Royal Com mission ease. As Sir William Irvine himseif s...

CHILD HUMOR. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 24 July 1914
i "'- u o aase....... All Stamps returned if book is. ICHILD HUMOR. The vast area which child-humor ha lis lately occupied in the world of literature renders one doubtful whether many of the innumrablo jokes foisted upon the "kiddies" are not, after all, the work of inventive children of larger growth than those to whom they are attributed. At first. sight it may seem singular that the ,majority of these funny stories are connected with scriptural history, bu:h taking it for granted that they are the pro ducts of adult minds, it proves that the "'old boys and girls" have been sharp enough to recognise that biblical nmat tors are prominent in the curricula in ton many schools. Hence it is noti sur prising to find in Children's Answers collected by John Henry Burn," many pleasantries of this character-"',Why was Moses hidden in the bulrushes by his mother?" Because she klidn't S want hins to be vaccinated." 111 .g view of the dodging demeanor adopted lat by parents who are opposed to ...
