DEFENDING THE PRESIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
DEFENDING THE PRESIDENT. &nbsp; WASHINGTON, Thursday. - Sena- tor Lewis, in the Senate, charged the Republicans with conspiring to discre- dit President Wilson in Europe by giv- ing the impression that he did not re- present the American people. Senator Lewis contended that the President was within his rights. There was no law or custom whereby the &nbsp; President was under an obligation or answerable to Congress for what he was now doing. The President was com- mander-in-chief of the armies, and in such capacity was entitled to make cer- tain agreements, but not treaties. Senator Lewis urged support for the President now that he was on foreign soil contesting for the supremacy of the United States. Senator Johnston protested against the further shedding of American blood in Russia. The United Slates, he said, had no business to interfere there.

A SAD CASE [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
A SAD CASE HOBART, Friday.- Some little time ago the Police Magistrate (Mr. E. W. Turner) expressed the opinion that it was a great pity something could not be done to keep away from drink those soldiers who returned from the war practically "physical wrecks." Mr. Turner said that it would be better if these men, who were susceptible to strong drink, were placed in a hospi- tal where they would be free from &nbsp; temptation. At yesterday's Police &nbsp; &nbsp; Court proceedings a very sad case came &nbsp; up for disposal. An Anzac, who had &nbsp; served for four and a half years at Gallipoli and on other battlefields, was &nbsp; charged with being drunk and disord- &nbsp; erly in Campbell Street on Dec. 31 ; he &nbsp; was also charged with violently resist- ing Constable Jeffrey. He wore blue &nbsp; arm-bands, which indicated that he was not in normal health, and bars on his &nbsp; uniform disclosed tha...
"WHY HIGH IRICES?" To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
"WHY HIGH PRICES?" To the Editor. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir.- I must admit, in reply to "Production For Use," that my first letter was merely an attempt to give some information on this subject, of immediate concern to us, of the year 1919, and had nothing to do with the state of affairs which obtained, say, a hundred and twenty years ago, when the good people of this district (some- what darker in complexion than the present-day readers of "The Advoc- ate") were of necessity compelled to follow "production for use," and were not worried by any of the troubles of &nbsp; rent or monopolies. Seeing, however, that retrograde Russia is indulging in an experiment on a huge scale in by- gone conditions, it should be prudent for both "Production For Use" and "Face The Situation" to await defi- nite information of the result of this re- version to primitive type, before in- flicting their views as to the com- parative merits of the two systems on your long-suffering readers....
RUSSIAN CONUNDRUM ALLIES FRANKLY PUZZLED BOLSHEVIKS ROUTED IN URALS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
RUSSIAN CONUNDRUM ALLIES FRANKLY PUZZLED BOLSHEVIKS ROUTED IN URALS. LONDON, Thursday.- The "Daily Mail" says that affairs in Russia are causing deep anxiety to the Allies. So much so that the Russian question is likely to be first discussed at the Peace Conference. Britain is against a major expedition to Russia, prefer- ring to see the establishment of a Rus- sian Government. She is unable, how- ever, to discover where the elements necessary to give stability to such a &nbsp; Government exist. &nbsp;

ULVERSTONE S MISSING LINK To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
ULVERSTONE S MISSING LINK To the Editor. &nbsp; Sir,- A letter, signed George Ellis, appears in your issue of the 23rd ulti- mo under the above heading, in which the writer questions the accuracy of certain information supplied by me in connection with the proposed railway extension to the Ulverstone wharf. I gave no evidence whatever before the Public Works Committee in regard to timber rates, but after I had complet- ed my evidence on the second day one of the members of the committee, Mr. Hean, I think, informed me that an Ulverstone timber merchant had stated that he had about one million feet of timber ready for shipment from the &nbsp; Nietta line, but Mr. Hean could not give me the gentleman's name, as he had not a copy of the evidence before him. I replied that there should be &nbsp; no delay in regard to the shipment so far as the railway rates were concern- ed, and on the same day, in order that the matter might be clearly under- stood, I wrote to t...

THE SAYINGS OF MRS. SOLOMON [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
THE SAYINGS OF MRS. SOLOMON My daughter, there are many styles of kisses, and they come in endless pat terns, even as Oriental. If a man kisseth thy hand gracefully, &nbsp; beware of him; for this is the habit of an accomplished flirt, which hath been acquired by much practice. &nbsp; Go to my Daughter. Knowest thou a man who hath lived long in a bachelor flat? Then beware of him, for his ways are full of guile and he hath not a thrill left. Yes, his love is but as warmed-over pudding or cold veal served upon the &nbsp; second day; even as second-hand furni- ture whereof the interior is not eaten. But he is better than nothing. Behold a woman delighteth to travel the path of love slowly and through devious ways of flirtation and senti- ment, but a man rusheth over it at the speed limit. Beware when she patteth thy coat lapel ; when she slippeth her hand con- fidently into thine overcoat pocket, be not persuaded. For the touch of a damsel's fingers is alluring...

The trend of the island's public men is generally Australiaward Mr. Bowling (with his brother James, now residing in Ho- bart) was the first to select and set- &nbsp; tle in the island when the Tasmanian Government threw it open for selec- tion in th...
"HANGHMAN PETERS" [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 4 January 1919
"HANGMAN PETERS" While the world was shuddering with horror over the British Blue-book revelations of Hun barbarities in South West Africa, news arrived (in Septem- ber last) that "Hangman" Carl Peters, the notorious former Governor of German East Africa, was dead. He was 62years old. Dr. Peters, as he was &nbsp; best known, was a resident of London when war broke out, having spent many years there following his exile, which arose out of the scandals con- nected with his brutal colonial career. He signalised his return to Germany in 1914 by abusive outbursts against England. In one article he expressed the fervent hope that Zeppelins would "hack London to pieces." Peters rank- ed as the "founder" of German East Africa, having led an expedition into the hinterland of Zanzibar in 18S84 and hoisted the German flag by right of conquest. Later he became the first Imperial High Commissioner of the territory, which the British army now occupies. As administrator of East Africa Pete...
