JOHN MADDEN, BARONET. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 March 1914

.1011 MADDEN, BARONET. .\'cording to town gossip, our popu: aIr Chief Justice and Lieutenant.Goe. verlior, who is leaving for London'.to day. is likely to have offered to himn ancestral honors while he is in England. N.. one will grudge the additioilal dis til ltion to His Honor, if it be a dis til ction, but so far purely Victoriar L:ironets have proved rather a woolly lot. I do not in this remark:refer to two or three quiet citizens who h]ave. while resitdents of Victoria tl?eoiane' heirs to undoubted titles, but rather to n few gentlemen who flaunt their al leged baronetcies in the face of thi ;tblii, though none of the British an thorities give these claimants place Then again it cannot be said that mucl listinction Ias been added to the ordcr by the holders of the only distinctivl YVitorian baronetcy lhitherto created Like haronets elsewhere, they have le,,ii fairly decent commonplace people.

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. ULSTER TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 March 1914

OUR MZELBOUR1NE LETTERB ULSTER TROUBLES. In the intervals of conversation about the really great matters of life, cricket, and horseracing, one can occasionally hear mention made of such trivial sub. jccts as Commonwealth and State poli tics, and even the future of the Em pire. The Ulster difficulties are the subject of a good deal of controversy in trains and trams just now, but truth to tell, discussion of this subject is generally confined to those who are evidently violent partisans on one side or the other. Much bad language, violent, incorrect statements, and even' fist-shaking are the usual accompani. Inents to these so-called arguments, but it. need hardly be said that the logic of either side is not remarkable for either cogency or coherency. One ex cited pair in a railway carriage the other day started amicably enough over the cablegrams in the morning pa per. The Home Ruler of the pair re gretted there should be any of these difliculties raised, and argued fairly enough t...

E STIVAL BAZAAR AT MOYSTON. A SUCCESSFUL OPENING. For some considerable time past the residents of the Moyston district, or, at least, a very large section of them, have been hard at work in effecting arrangements in connection with the holding of a festival bazaar, the pro ceeds of which are to be devoted to the purpose of reducing the debt on the new Public and Mechanics' Hall, which was'recently erected, with furn ishings,' at an expenditure of sonie thing like £460. The committee of management of the hall, when they entered upon this task, also began .o look 'about to see by which means they could wipe out the debt when it was contracted, and it was decided that the most productive way would be the holding of a bazaar. Meetings were held, and both ladies and gentlemen united together for the cause, and so well were their efforts responded to, not only by .the residents of the place, hut those settled in other localities, that the bazaar, almost from the out set, promised to be a...

The idea of a settlement of the question by devolution is gaining fa vor, while it is emphasised that there is no finality in the Government scheme, It is thought that a statutory commis sion could draft a scheme of Federal Government that might be worked out during the six years' exemption of Ulster. Mr Asquith, in the House of Com mons, to-day expressed himself anxi ous to give consideration to any policy that would make for the settle ment of the trouble. The resignation of army officers still fills the public mind. It is declared that Sir A. Paget is being made a scapegoat, and that he will resign al together. The papers laud the resign ed officers as saviours of the country. Colonel Seely, Secretary for War, states that he will publish all the pa pers regarding the resignation and re instatement of Brigadier-General Gough.
