The Candidate at the outset said he was in favor of the initiative and re- ferendum and elective ministries. He was opposed to the numerous flummer- ies and absurdities that constituted the part and parcel of the procedure in Parliament to-day. He favored effec- tive protection. He believed in giving members of parliament voting power &nbsp; equal to the number of people they re- presented. After criticising the Fusion party' s doings he said they left the country £2,500,000 in debt whilst the &nbsp; three years of Labor rule the ledger was squared each year and a surplus of £2.600.000 was lelt at the end of the term.

SALVAGE. PRIZES FOUND ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
SALVWE. PRIZES FOUND ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA. The owners, officers, and -crew of any ship that rescues another at sea from . a perilous position are Entitled by law to receive salvage money for doing so. All European nations ob serve this law. The amount of salvage money re ceived for rescuing a disabled ship depends partly upon the value of the rescued ship's cargo, and partly on the extent of the risks run by the rescuers in salving the disabled vessel. As a general (rule, a fifth of the. Svalue of the cargo is paid by the owners of the rescued ship, but from: time to time as much as half the value of the salved cargo has been. paid. Some years ago it felt to the lot of a little Bristol tramp named the Teacher to rescue, at great risk to herself and her crew, a Russian liner, which had broken her propeller when within ten miles of Manukau Bar, on the West Chast of New Zealand. The Russian ship was in a most perilous position when the Teacher came to her rescue; she was drift ing on '...
WHEN LORD COLERIDGE SNATCHED A NAP. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
WHEN LORD COLERIDGE SNATCHED A NAP. In his reminiscences in the " Corn hill Magazine" Sir Henry Lucy re calls a day when, walking through the Royal Courts of Justice, he no ticed that there were quite the aver age of judges snatching a brief nap. "'Nearly all do it." he adds, "some more skilfully than others.: The Lord Chief Justice (Coleridge) dozes with more than the weasel's wariness. As he sits on the bench with closed eyes, barristers accustomed to prac tice before him know very well when he is asleep. Where they fail is in knowledge of the precise moment at which he wakes. Some men, having fallen asleep at the post of duty, wake with a start, and by guilty embarrassment betray their secret. My Lord knows better than that. Having finished his sleep, he remains exactly in the same position, with eyes closed and countenance immno bile. Intently listening, .he waits till a chance remark of the. counsel, provides opportunity to interpose with a comment, which be, delivers with veil...
Street Construction at Coburg [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
Street Construction at Coburg At the Coburg Council's last meet in the question of adopting plans for the copstruction of Bellevue Avenue came up for discussion. Mr Holden, a resident in the street, objected and said he wanted to know the kind of gutter the council propos ed to construct. Cr. Campbell said' at present it wa a nuisance, and the proposed works were to get rid of that nuisance. IMr Holden said that if he had to build he would have to construct a bridge over the gutter as in Gordon street, and why should he spend about £114 as he had 280 feet which worked out at 5s 9d per foot. He objected to a big gutter being put there. The Surveyor said the Council must. carry out the scheme under the pre sent circumstances. Mr Holden said it would suit him if left as it was. Cr Cash said it would cost a lot of money to carry out the scheme actual ly required, but it would not be done at present. Mr Holden said that if a good job was made of it, it would improve the property there. H...
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPS AND THE SEQUEL. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
SHIPWRECKED MAZDA LAMPSi# AND THE SEQUEL. The "Electrical Times," reported, when the "Oceana" foundered some time back, that a number of cases of Mazda lamps, consigned to Bombay Tpwn Hall, went to the bottom. The report concluded by saying that, "dredging operations are proceeding, and we have not the slightest doubt, that in the event of one of the boxes coming up, its contents would be found in tact." The sequel to this (vide the "Elec trical Times" six months later) is in teresting: In a paragraph headed, "A prophecy justified," they state that of 100 Mazda lamps recovered, only 4 per cent were in any way damaged-the remaining 95 per cent, being in perfect condition. This is yet another proof that Mazdas are mechanically strong, and will withstand rough usage.

WORLD-WIDE NOTES. HUGE FLOATING DOCK THAT CANNOT BE LAUNCHED. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
SWORLD-WIDE NOTES. HUGE FLOATING DOCK THAT CANNOT BE LAUNCHED. Strenuous efforts have been made to launch the huge floating dock which has been constructed for the British Admiralty by Messrs. dwan, Hunter, and Wigham Richardson, at Wallsend, but so far it has shown a decided disinclination to leave the place of its birth. At the first attempted launch a large number of workmen proceeded to release the timber underneath the dock; but, despite all the efforts of the workmen and the yard offti cials, the huge bulk could not be moved, and after an hour's hard work it was decided to abandon the attempt for the time being, as the tide was ebbing. The dock, which is the largest of its kind, has a lifting capacity of 32.000 tons. -It is to be placed in the Medway and is to be used for Dreadnoiights. Owing to its great size the dock has been constructed in two sections. The smaller sec tion was launched a short time ago. One explanation of the failure of the dock to move from its berth is s...
LONDON'S QUEERLY-NAMED CLUBS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
LONDON'S QUEERLY-NAMED CLUBS. The ' Q " Club, which recently en tertained Colonel Seely to dinner. is one of the many quecrly-named clubs which exist -in the Metro olis. Queer as their titles are, however. as a rule, their mysterious designa tions seem commonplace enough v h:n their origin and purpose are revealed. Thus, the " Q " Club owes its name to the fact that' its members are Territorial officers who have been successful in passing the same er amination for promotion as that required by regular officers, and are entitled, in consequence. to have the letter " Q " attached to their names in the Army List. The subject of London's freak clubs is a fascinating one, and would provide ample material for a readable volume. Among the curiosities of London club nomencla ture are the following :-the Thir teen, Eighty, Nineteen Hundred, and Five Hundred Clubs the Billiken. Beefsteak, Thatched House. Cocoa Tree, Gridiron, Castaways, Sesame; the Optimistic, One-and-All, Court ship and Matr...
A Correction. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 14 August 1914
A Correction. , 0 To the Editor. Sir, Would you kindly allow me space in a column of your paper, to slightly correct a report which appeared in your last issue, under the heading of "Fawkner News." It stated that at the meeting of the Fawkner Literary and Debating Society, Mr. J. E. Fenton, the Labor Candidate, was intro duced. Now sir, this was not the case, nor was the object a political one; Mr. Fenton came as a citizen invited by the Fawkner Society to deliver ain address, which was on "Finance." Mr. Fenton did not make use of any party warfare, nor did he mention any names, the address was an intellectual treat to all present. This society, sir, is non-political, but it is only too willing to hear men or women who have a message to deliver for the educa tional welfare of their fellow citizens. Trusting sir, that in future, should any reporters be present, they might approach an official of the society for any of the details they do not know. Yours etc. T. C. Willmott, Hon. Sec....
