THE CASE FOR UNIVERSAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
THE CASE FOR UNIVERSAL SERVICE. The issue at the present Juncture of the pamphlet, 'The Case for Universal Service,' must serve a useful purpose. This question Is at present upper most In everyone's mind, nnd the wider publicity that Is given to the arguments, and the more Un real meaning of universal service is brought home to the people, the better. The pamphlet, which Is Issued by the Universal Service League, sets out the case In simple, well directed langungp. It explains the issues that are at stake, and their relation to Australia, and urges the need for Immediate organisation of resources. The slipshod methods nf the voluntary system are clearly shown, and the objections which are continually being heard against the general scheme of universal service are taken seriatum and re plied to.
THE GRIP OF THE HUNS. "PINK PLIABLE RUBBER." [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
IN THE GRIP OF THE HUNS. (Special to 'The Mirror.') 'PINK PLIABLE RUBBER.' In our lnst issue we referred to the pen cils, pens and other articles of Gorman and Austrian origin which are still being sold in Australia and are even being given to the soldiers. Our attention has been called to rubber erasers now on the market. L. and C. Ilard inuth, Austria, used to supply 'pink pliable rubber' marked with their name on both the rubber nnd tho boxes. Thr- sninn rmnlit.v rubber under the same name, sold in pre cisely the siime kind of box, is now on the market, and purports to be 'made in France.' The letter 'II' appears on both, and there is in fact no appreciable differ ence in either rubber or box except that the full name of the firm and Austria as tho country of origin have boon omitted. Some enquiries regarding the importation of these articles should certainly be made by the authorities.
OUR HUNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
OUR HUNS. (Special to 'The Mirror.') Uuntliur Mlttlehuusser, a Hun farmer, was charged at the Windsor Police Court recently with having In his possession .a quantity of firearms and explosives nt Nelson, about six miles from Riverstone. A double-barrelled gun, a small rifle, a flask of gunpowder, 3?, plugs of gelignite, 14 plugs of llthite, fuses, detonators, and other ma terials wero discovered on the premises. Mlttlclmusser had not. reported these explosives, nnd when interrogated denird that ho hud them in his possession, lie was fined £10, or In de fault threo months' hard labor. The magistrate mado the remark that tho treatment meted out to Germans by the British was altogether better than tho treatment experi enced by tho British at the hands of tho Huns. Wo should think so, indeed! c s ? G. Itelmer, of 'Wantage,' Telegraph-road, Fymblc, is another Hun living on tho North Shoro line who requires a close wuti-h being kept over him. We understand that he was, and probably Is sti...
ENEMY GOODS IN AUSTRALIA. IMPORTANT GOVERNMENT ACTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
ENEMY GOODS IN AUSTRALIA. IMPORTANT GOVERNMENT ACTION. Wo congratulate the Prime Minister of tho Commonwealth on the further steps which he an nounced last Wednesday with regard to enemy firms, and closing the Australian market to Ger man goods. In particular the decision of Mr. Hughes to close up the business of the Conti-' nental Tyre Company and to release the controller from his present duties will be regarded with sat istaciton uy many people who liuvo been surprised at this company's continued activities in spite of its being tin enemy firm. In many cases some time elapses before the controller is able to wind i up tho business, collect debts, and close accounts, but it is quite clear that that period had elapsed - 1 in this case. ' Mr. Hughes's declaration that in order to meet tho commercial menace of the Huns Australia must Increase her production, and that she must : buy solely from the United Kingdom and her | Allies will, we hope, meet with the hearty response, on the pa...
L. AND C. HARDMUTH, LTD. A QUESTION OF FOUNTAIN PENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
L. AND C. HARDMUTH, LTD. A QUESTION OF FOUNTAIN PENS. Wo have Indicated In the columns of 'Tho Mirror' our emphatic opinion that the grip of tho Huns over commerce in the British Empire can only be removed by hard hitting and plain speak ing. We believe that the time has come for meeting the barbarians in commerce and on the battlefield with our own weapons. This is not an occasion for kid-glove tactics. Just as wo would not hesi tate to use by way of retaliation poisonous gases or any other artifices employed by the Huns, so wo believe that In the commercial sphere they should be fought with the utmost vigor, and even bitter ness. Some firms In England have openly exposed by advertisement nnd otherwise, the enemy asso ciations of products sold by their trade rivals. We appinud this and any other method used to crush the Hun commercial domination. We see nothing undignified or Improper in this method; indeed, we regard it as the duty of every com mercial house to inform the public o...
CENSOR AND PUBLIC. THE "SOUTHLAND" INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
CENSOR AND PUBLIC. THE 'SOUTHLAND' INCIDENT. (Special to 'The Mirror.') Last week the Censor permitted the publication of certain particulars regarding the torpedoing of the troopship 'Southland,' an event which oc curred over two months ago. The main fucts wero known to every important newspaper office in Australia and to some thousunds of people. Suppression of the truth docs not seem to have served any useful purpose whatever. The enemy Iiavlng performed the act were acquainted with the facts, nnd the authorities cannot, therefore, plead that publication of the truth afforded in formation to the enemy. Wo protest against the assumption that the truth was calculated to create public alarm and interfere with recruiting. On the contrary, much more public anxiety Is caused by suppression of the truth and the exaggeration in the public mind of facts of which they have only nn Imperfect knowledge. In nny rase, if the pub lication of the facts is calculated to restrict re cruiting, that...
"MIRROR" AND THE HUNS. WARM PRAISE. OUR CAMPAIGN COMMENDED. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
'MIRROR' AND THE HUNS. WARM PRAISE. OUR CAMPAIGN COMMENDED. (Special to 'The Mirror.') 'We have received during the pnst week n ycry wurra expression of conunendnl ion with regard to our anti-Hun ciunpaigrt from an ini'lucntial source which we tire not at lib erty to specify more closely, except to sny that it is Imperial in character. 'The Mirror' has been specially thanked for information snnnliml fniimli nf \vliir-h has not appeared in our columns) and as sistance rendered by members of its staff. We have reason to know that we have been instrumental in definite public service of an important diameter, and this has been duly appreciated in appropriate quarters. In making this announcement, which is certainly very gratifying to ourselves, we desire to express our thanks to our readers who continue to support us so readily and supply us with so much of the fuel which enables us to sustain this campaign.
SOME OTHER OASES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
SOME OTHER CASES. Now that the authorities have made an excellent beginning with some influential Huns, we again commend to their immediate and earnest attention tho eases of Herr Al fred Heinrich Wilhelm Peick (of the Ger man-Australian line), Herr Dr. August Schcidel (managiug director of the Common wealth Portland Cement Company), and xicrr utto uonaunscn (.late uerman uonsul at Newcastle). It is astounding that any of these men should have been allowed liberty for a single day. The following cases of men still serving in tho Commonwealth Military Forces, who have been referred to from time to time in the columns of 'Th» Mirror,' should surely be taken up by the authorities, who must .now be aware of the anxiety felt on this subject by the public generally. Fried rich Wilhelm Carl Michelmanu, a naturalised German, serving in the B.A.G.A at South Head Fort, Sydney. Johann Poter Paul Sknlln, a naturalised German, was formerly Master Giuiuer at South Head, Sydney, and is stated to b...
THE WORLD OF THE TURF. WARWICK FARM RACES AT CANTERBURY. NOTES AND COMMENTS BY "MARPLOT." [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
THE WORLD OF THE TURF. WARWICK FARM RACES AT CANTERBURY. NOTES AND COMMENTS BY 'MARPLOT.' As tlio Warwick Farm course Is still in the occupation of .the military forces, to-day's Warwick Farm meeting will be held at Canterbury Park, and, Judging from tlie success of the club's other ven tures at the easily-reached rendezvous, It Is safo to assume that tho muster of racegoers will be large. Especially will this bo the case' after the great victory scored over the bookmakers last Saturday on the same course. The fielders have a habit of Betting their own back, with a ? bit of Interest, and It remains to be seen whether they will do it to-day. Certainly the winners look to bo more difficult to find, for the entries are numerous, and the events look rather open. Among those who mny lie in the firing line at the judge's box are the following: — MAIDEN HANDICAP, six furlongs. Orclad, Haughty Ena, Green Grass. JUMPERS' FLAT, one mile. Royal Hastings, Compromise, Kurnalpi. JUVENILE HANDICAP...
LIBRARY FOR LIVERPOOL CAMP. AN APPEAL FOR BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
LIBRARY FOR LIVERPOOL CAMP. AN APPEAL FOR BOOKS. The staff of the. Sydney Municipal Library, with tho approval of tho Lord Mayor, has undertaken to provide a cir culating library at Liverpool Camp for the use of the soldiers. Arrangements have been mnde to house the books in the new building now being erected In connection with tho Church ol England Tent. Tho library 'will be open freely to every soldier In the camp, Irre spective of creed. An appeal Is now made for donations of books. With a little self-denial almost every household can find at least one hook it could give, nnd when it is considered that thu books will provide some pleasure and Interest to the men who aro risking their lives for our sake, there should be no hesitation In giving. Works of fiction, travel, history, biography, and poetry will be very welcome, and as the library de sires to devote a section to books about tho war and the countries Involved, books dealing with these subjects nre particu larly desired.

The Bevelled Edge [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
'%/?e ? : ? I Bevelled ! A mirror's function, us nil men allege, Is to reflect the world In colors true; Tim proper purpose of tho bevelled edge Is to look sideways ana see things a3kew. Bright Reasoning. Von Keventlow s:iys that the natural conligurntlim of the North 'Sen, und not the British fleet, has kept the German ships buttled up. What a brilliant Idea that 1?, anil how delightfully the same reasoning applies In other spheres. It was not .tho Sydney's guns that smashed the Emdtn — oh, dear no! It was the pe culiar nature of fire and the fact that hard blows can break steel plates that 'caused tile whole trouble. It was not the airship that dropped bombs recently on London that accounted for the destruction ot a brick wall or two and the loss of a few civilian lives. Nothing ot the kind. It was owing to nature of building ma terial and the curve of the dome- of St. Paul's Cathedral that the thing happened. The churtnije of beer in Sydney had no thing to do with tiic strike. It...

CRICKET. PAST SCORING IN HOT WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
CRICKET. FAST SCORING IN HOT WEATHER. Tho weather in Sydney last Saturday was a real corker, nnd was not relished by players, some of whom frequently retired from the field to quench their thirst. This was particularly noticeable at the Sydney Cricket Ground, where Rcdforn and West ern Suburbo met. In the circumstances, thp collective efforts of tho batsmen — 1,978 for tho loss of 78 wickets— were nvnnllpnf. Tht- nvemtra rate of ccorinir was practically 90 runs per hour, as com pared with 64 runs per hour in the Mel bourne matches, in which 5S wickets fell for 1,315 runs, or 663 fewer than the num ber scored in Sydney. Thus the rompnri sons made In previous Issues of thu 'Mir- ror' are behisr confirmed. How the Clubs Scored. Lust Saturday's piny marked tho open Ing of the fourth round, and with the ex ception of Western Suburbs, all tho teams commenced an innings. Redfern topped tho poll with seven for 334 against the Westerners (In this mutch play ceased at fi.30 p.m.), and were fo...
AUSTRALIAN V. ENGLISH HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror of Australia — 20 November 1915
AUSTRALIAN V. ENGLISH HORSES, Time was, and that not so very long agu, when the Australian horses were In high favor in India. Tho reason was not far to seek, for they proved so uniformly successful that the mere fact of being a 'whaler,' as the Australians were called, meant increased poundage! in the saddle. But victories all along tho line continued in ' spite of this. Some of the wealthy owners thereupon began to Import horses from England, with a view to beating the Australians, and It would seem that tho latter nro steadily being worsted. Is the same thing to happen In Aus tfnlla itself?' It begins lo look like It. Tho very .rich stakes given by the A..I.C. nml V.K.C. muke It a payable proposltlun to give a good price for a first-class horse, » ml, us the war has depreciated the value of tlio thoroughbred In England, an In : iviiKlngly largo number are finding their wiiy out here.
