The moving finger writes, and having writ Moves on. Nor all thy piety nor wit Shall lure it back to cancel hall a line Nor all thy tears wash out a word of it. SATURDA.Y, DEC. 5, 1914 In ' the interests.of the people, Crs Jenkins and Shillabeer are to be commended for their brave showing of nationalisation that flows through their British blood about which they are so proud to boast in condemnation of our Gov ernment in its treatment of interned prisoners anS> Germans generally.
