THE OATH. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 29 October 1915
THE OATH. I sweat' to cherish in iny heart this hate - Till my last heart-throb wanes; ' So may the sacred venom with my bloOd - Mingle and charge my veins ! May there pass never from darkened brow The furrows hate has sworn ! May they plough deeper in my flesh, to • mark The outrage I have borne ! \ By towns in flames, by my fair fields laid waste By hostages undone, By cries of murdered women and of babes, • By each dead warrior son. I swear to conquer or to fali, that Right And Justice rule again— I, France, whose voice austere shall, thrill the hearts Of all my valiant slain ! I take my oath of hatred and of wrath Before God, and before The holy waters of the Marne and Aisne, Still ruddy with French gore; An ! fix my eyes upon immortal Rheims Darning from naV.e to porch, Lest I forget, lest I forget who lit The sacriligious torch !'

everything iheir own way: — MR. SPENOE.ON POSTAL \ UNION. Mr. W. G. Spence (Postmaster General),-himself the head of one of the largest unions in Australia, makes the assertion that some unions are going too far in their criticisms of himself and his departmental-officers. He warns them that it is contrary to the departmental" regulations to openly criticise in this manner, and if this'sort of thing continues some action-will have to be taken to put a etop to it. The usually even-tempered Mr, Spence is especially indignant at the recent action of the £7ew South Walesl Post and Telegraph. Association in the wording of its protest against any attempt to close the inter-State trunk lines', 4' there by depriving deserving officers of any reasonable prospect of advancement." The president of the Association on the occasion of the discussion was reported to have as serted that public servants would not submit tamely to the reduction while politicians drew big salaries an^i in creased. the...
AN UNANSWERABLE BOOK [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 29 October 1915
AN UMtMEMBLE BOOK The remarkable persons who.,.still suffer doubts as to Germany's respon sibility for the war may have them removed with neatness, efficiency, and despatch by reading the indictment of German militarism lately publish ed' at Lausanne in Switzerland, un der Zola's famous title, 1'J'Accuse." The book, which has been printed in German and French, has been writ ten, as a wellknown Swiss gentleman attests, by a Prussian "born on Ger man soil, of German parents, Ger man in language and sentiment, who loves his country better and more than any other." Yet this German author declares—and proves by thorough, judicial', and e:&lt;haustive examination or the evidence—that the war was. deliberately plotted, prepared, and launched by the Ger man military party. ' Pie quotes its - precursors and prophets—Bernhardi, Treitschke, Frobenius, and others. He shows the methods used to work public opinion. He says: "It had long been settled that this aggres sive war must be repre...

WAR SITUATION GRAVE CRISIS IMMINENT. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 29 October 1915
■WAR SITUATION GRAVE CRISIS IMMINENT. Sir J. H. Carruthers writes:— One cannot help feeling that Aus tralians, with but too few exceptions,, do not realise the critical position that now faces the Empire ayd the Allies. The fate of the civilised world lies trembling in the balance; and we are near to the hour that will mark the turning point of this war. If Germany cau obtain com mand of the Balkans, and thereby unite the forces of Turkey, Bulgaria, , Austria, and Germany, after over coming Servia, there'will be a wedge driven between the east v and -west that will cut of£ England's Allies from participation in any other fields but those on the borders of France and Russia. That means the threatening of British rule in Egypt and India, and the possible closing of the Suez Canal. It must never be forgotten Chat the Mussulman population o£ Egypt, and largely of India and Afghani stan, may act very differently with Turkey and ' Germany in the ascendant from what they have in the past. ...
AFTER THE WAR. PROSPERITY NOT POVERTY. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 29 October 1915
! PROSPERITY NOT POVERTY. A .striking and unusual view of the war on -its economic side was ex pressed by Mr. Theodore H. Price, of New York, editor ci>f "Commerce and Finance," in the course of an in terview reported in the "New York World." We,,give the following ex tracts:— &lt; "Hysterics is scarcely too strong a word to apply to the popular vision . of a world made bankrupt for a gen eration by the war. Unless we are to abandon human experience as our safest guide, it may. be confidently asserted that general1 prosperity and not general poverty will follow the conclusion of peace, arid that of this prosperity the combatants will enjoy the greatest measure. ' "The reason why a great war cre ates such a tremendous impression of ruin and disaster ds that the suf fering an,d destruction are concen trated into a narrow space and a jj brief period of time, and are thus, ir as it were, dramatised before our ' eyes. i i "The burning up of £60,000,000 worth of property in the...

BRANDS ON TRAVELLING SHEEP. ACT TO BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 29 October 1915
BRANDS ON TRAVELLING SHEEP. ACT TO BE STRICTLY EN FORCED. At the Coonamble Pastures Pro tection Board meeting last /week Di rector J. B. Peacock brought under notice the question of travelling sheep being branded -with a T, in ad dition to the owner's brand. As a matter of fact, he said, sheep had been going about lately without be ing branded at all. This arose, lie thought, through, the leniency shown for some considerable time that sheep within a day's travel of trucks need not be branded with the T, and that came about through the Board being asked to overlook the failure to mark sheep being taken to shows. Ho considered it a great injustice for there to be any exemptions; it 'was not fair play to the man who was 1-A-or two days' travel from trucks, knd he asked for the Board's opinion on the matter. To allow exemptions did away with the intention of the Act altogether. Another; lot of sheep he knew of had been exempted from the T brand owing to their being full woolled. They ha...

SCIENCE AND RELIGION. ATTITUDE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 29 October 1915
SCIENCE AND RELIGION. AI n TUDE OF (THE GATHOLIC CHURCH. Under the auspices of the Catholic Federation, a most, interesting lec ture was recently delivered by the Rev; Father Merner. The reverend lecturer in his open ing woi'ds dealt- with the charges of bigots and ranters who were contin ually voicing the allegation that the Catholic Church was opposed^ to science, and that scientific investig Ra tion might expect nothing but hostil ity from the Church, He mention incidentally, that the world s most distinguished scientists had been m en of deep religion and most arden :faith. The Church, itself, had noth ng to fear from science. It challen ged investigation, threw open, its libraiies and records, and invited re search". And1 the "Vatican Council, so far from being opposed to science, helped and encouraged its prosecu tion and progress. " The Sceptre of Science belongs to Christian Europe," said Father Merner. To. the monks of mediaeval Europe, he said, science owed " most of its p...

A NEW WHEAT DISTRICT [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915
A NEW WHSST DISTRICT A striking instance of the develop ment following on railway construction is-afforded in the Dunedoo district. S^n: years ago the landholders there grew a little wheat for hay—for home require ments. Now, within a 15-mi!eradius of Duncdoo, there are 35,000 acres under Cfop, and it is quite certain that within the near future this will be increased to 60,000. And there will be greater ex pansion still when the decentralisation line is constructed, connecting with the Dubbo-Werris Creek line at Elong, and with Newcastle, via Cassiljs, Merriwa and Muswcllbrook. The Government is ccMSurablc for not having this work in progress long ago, especially as they are spending millions I'm other directions, and with a,reckless disregard for their responsibilities. H.

AMERICAN TRUST CHALLENGED. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 5 November 1915
AMERICAN TRUST CHAL LENGED. Mr J. A. Fihelly, Assistant Minis ter for Justice in the Queensland G-overnmeut, says that the meat companies' operating in Australia, and. particularly the Meat Trust, could easily dispel any doubt as to the alleged control of the meat works by German's by publishing lists of shareholders in tlie companies. "We appear," lie added, "to have some Chicago packers in our midst who are not only supplying' Germany with meat, but have a.ctually threat ened to starve Great Britain if meat is not permitted to go to German}*." The Minister referred to the recent condemnation by an English prize court of four Scandinavian vessels and their consignments of meat and lard despatched for Germany, via Copenhagen, and the outcry made in I America over the seizure.

Mr It. Houston. McNeice, repre sentative of Paling's, lias just com pleted a lengthy business, tour over a large portion of the West and North west, and declares that during the many years he has been operating in the same districts he never saw con ditions which sanctioned a better prospect for the pastoralists. The crops, too, in most places are good. Along the Mudgee line, in and out of the valleys, up in the hills, right through Capertee, on to Rylstone, thence to Mudgee, and ®n to Gulgong, the country is a pretty picture of a beneficient season. There are mag nificent crops between Mudgee and Gulgong, and in the Dunedoo and Muudoorau districts some should yield 30 bushels to the acre. In this part of the State late frosts did a good deal of damage in isolated cases. The opening of the railway to Ooon abarabran will be followed by an enormous expansion of agrisulture on rich end easily cultivable lands, which are now given up almost en tirely to grazing.'
