BISMARCK AND HIS SUCCESSORS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

B1CS3ARCK AND HIS SUCCESSORS. It Tvas natural tli:it on the centen ary of Bismarck, the Germans should havo declared that tlio Chancellors spir it still lived, and perhaps it- vus nat ural, too, thut they should havo spoken of the war as tho culmination of iJ.'s marck's policy. In a sense tho Ger mans were riglit: tho war is certainly the culmination, soon to bo the. toppl ing crash of Bismarck's policy of blood and iron. But Bismarck would be mightily astonished and dismayed if he could revisit his Germany to-day. In all important particulars his succes sors have disregarded tho conditions he attached to his policy. His idea was always to maintain German powor in Europe, and ho had no desire to make .his country a world-power. Jo keep on good terms with Kussia, and to lose no opportunity to »v.;ko the other Powers jealous of each other-these were tho cardinal features of his con ception of German diplomacy. ' The present war, had it been presented to him as a hypothetical case, he ...

A VALUABLE HINT. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

A VALUABLE HINT. ... Those "who get on in the world are those who never fail to take a valuable hint when it comes their way. Here is a hint which may prove o£ great value to you. Mrs. T. Elliott, Mines-road, Korum burra, says:-"For years I suffered from backache and other distressing symptoms of kidney trouble, such as disordered secretions, dizzy attacks, and a dull, tired feeling that I could not shake off. I tried all sorts o£ kid ney remedies in the hope of getting well again, but until I got Doan's Back ache Kidney Pills nothing did me any good. These ' pills were one day brought under my notice as a cure for disordered "kidneys, so I bought some. The first couple of bottles gave me relief, and eight bottles made a com plete cure. Before I took Doan's Backache Kidney Pills my sufferings were awful, and I used to feel some times too ill to move, but I am in splendid health now, and have been ? every since my cure was effected six years ago. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are a fi...

Coal Miners Wages. INTER-STATE CONFERENCES. BRIGHTER OUTLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

Coal Miners' Wages. INTER-STATE CONFERENCES. BRIGHTER OUTLOOK. The following statement in regard to the increase in wages asked for by the. coal miners has been supplied by the General Secretary, Mr T. Burley. From the compulsory conference it was arranged that private conferences were to' take, place and on Monday, 4th October, the Federation officers and the officers of'the A.C.M.A. met the representatives of the Victorian coal mines. What took place at the confer anee was hot to be handed to the press, but every effort was made to effect a settlement by the Court in order to prevent a stoppage of work. Judging by what has appeared in the daily pi ess it looks as it" a settlement had been arrived at in Newcastle, and if that is so then its influence will be such in the South coast that we may count on 12,000 members out of lr>,000 having arrived at a solution for the time being. This will then leave Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria yet to come to an understanding. A further pr...

Correspondence, [We aro not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents under this heading. -Ed.] HOVELL v. HUME. (TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS). Sir,- Having no reference book at hand it escaped my memory for the moment that though Hovell never reached Western Port as an explorer in company with Kume, he visited the place two years later when sent by the Governor of New South Wales to assist; in establishing a convict settlement. I have to thank San Remo No. 8 for re* minding us (hat all Hovell ever did for Western ' Port \vas to use his best en deavours to make it a dumping ground for English convicts.

WESTERN PORT HISTORY. TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 October 1915

WESTERN PORT HISTORY. TO THE EDITOR POWLETT EXPRESS. Sir, - Whether it be desirable or otherwise to change the name of San Remo to Hovell, the letter from ''J.G." in a recent issue is full of historic interest ; it is so inspiring and informative. It shows that this port of Victoria has a history that we should be proud of. Without siding with either parties in the Hovell v. San Remo controversy, "J.G." has illuminated the discession, and effec tively.summarised facts relating to the early days of Phillip Island and Western Port. I must confess that I did ver gard the Hovell v. San Remo con troversy as a waste of time, but I have altered my opinion since I have yeasp.n to believe that it is no doubt lai'gely responsible for "J.G.'s" con tribution on Western Port history. Many letters that appear in news papeis are worse than useless, but'the one under notice is a pleasing excep tion. Your'paper has been advocating an " Advance Gippsland" policy. By all means continue to do so, but I...
