ELECTRIC PICTURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 17 October 1916

ELECTRIC PICTURES. The #tar at these pictures on Saturdly'' night, and at the mati nee in |^eT afternoon was 'Jane Shore'8,' depicted ' in 7500ft of film. Several thousands of. people were engaged in the production of this drama /which1* ''dealt with early English history. There were many gorgeous scenes, those dealing with the battle of Mortimer's Gross, being especially fine. In addition to this drama several others were shown. The/ war pic tures were especially good, and depicted many interesting scenes from the front in Flanders. A picture of the now famous Bri tish tank, which has been used with such surprising results, was . amongst the number. There was a large attendance, proving that Mr. Nom Chong's enterprise in procuring high-class pictures has met with a just reward.

UNSOUND MIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 17 October 1916

UNSOUND MIND. A man named John Givney at tracted considerable attention in Braidwood on Saturday. He stood on the side of Wallace-street for fully four hours, with his gazs concentrated on space, and all enquiries as to what he was gaz ing at failed to elicit a reply from him. The previous night he interrupted the conscription meeting, and was bundled out by the police in the niidst of cries: He was in a most excited state. Later he made another appear ance, when his demeanour was : much calmer, and he said he had been at the front, and re iharked that, a bayonet passing through owi was terrible. The; same night and following morn ing he visjted the Hoek-up three times, making all manner of ab surd remarks on each occasion. He was subsequently locked up, and was brought before tlie po-j lice ''court on Monday and char ged with being of unsound mind. There is very little known about the man, except that it appears he went to Egypt with the 'Men from Snowy River.' ?. ' CatpfAin Wedd, ...

No-Conscription. — , — ♦_ — _ MEETING AT MAJORS CREEK. On Friday nnight last a meet ing of electors was held at the hall, ? Major's Creek, to form a branch of the No-Conscription League in . that town. There was a large attendance. Mr. T. Wiggins was voted to the chair. Both the chairman and Mr. J. Hanly addressed, the meeting. Mr. Hanly spoke on the question from a purely Australian stand point, pointing out that Australia had done, and was prepared to do, her fair share in the fighting, but there was a point beyond which she could not go without at once imperilling her industrial and financial systems. If alL the able-bodied citizens were with drawn from the country the in evitable result would be that in dustries would fade out of exis tence. . A resolution was earned, amidst applause, expressing unqualified hostility to the conscription of human life for foreign, service, and pledging the meeting to use all legitimate means to defeat the referendum.

"SONGS OF A SENTIMENTAL BLOKE." [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 24 October 1916

'SONGS OF A SENTIMENTAL BLOKE.' We have received from the pub lishers (Messrs. Angus and Rob ertson, Ltd.) a new pocket edi tion of the above book of poems, which is called 'the edition for the trenches.' This book' has made the author, Mr. C. J. Denis, famous throughout Australia. and nas given nun an nonored posi tion among the poets of the Bri tish Empire. From the pen of the same author, comes 'The Moods of Ginger Mick,' a typical Aus tralian 'bloke.' How Miek haw ked rabbits and met 'tarts' at home ; how he enlisted, and made his mark at the front, and fin ally, how he died for his coun try, is told in Mr. Denis's own inimitable language. The volume is worthy of a place beside 'The Sentimental Bloke,v and no high er praise can be given to it. The latter book has, by the way, had a sale of 54,860 copies in less that a year, and ? its verses are quoted wherever the English lan guage is spoken. The Government has decided not to subsidise the fees, paid by hospital patients. The Ge...

"GIVE TEE BOYS IN THE TRENCHES A BEST." [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 24 October 1916

®OTJ TftE BOT& IN THE TREN CHES A BEST.' . It has taken Mr. Hector Lam ond to ascertain that tile huge reinforcements asked for are for the purpose of giving the boys hv the trenches a rest. So far conscriptionist speakers and wri ters have carefully dodged or evaded .the point. Mr. Hughes states, under pres sure, that perhaps (?) the num ber required would -not be so great later on, though, in the House, he told us we could as sume that the same numbers would be required all through. Mr. Holman, when asked at North Sydney, failed to produce a satisfactory reason. He practi cally told the audience that they would have to take the figures on trust, while Senator Pearce al together ignored a written ques tion asking why such numbers of men were wanted. It takes Mr. Lamond to extri cate his leaders from their quan dary by suggesting that our poor boys need a rest. Surely Mr. La mond knows that our soldiers do not work a whole week, a month, or a year without any rest or sleep. ...

Late War News, The Roumanians continue- to hold their frontier passes against the Austro-Germans from Transyl vania. Both sides are concentra ting forces to the utmost before the^ wonter sets in. The Ger mans desire to knock out Rou mania, and the Russians are making an effort to obliterate the possibility ot lierman danger. The Allies .continue firmly to. control Grecian affairs. Realising the intentions of the Allies, King Constantine is allowing the Go vernment to seek a workable ar rangement with the Allies. Half the military forces concentrated at Larissa will be removed. Mr. Ashmead Bartlett; referring to the position on the Somme front, says the German position is daily becoming more precari ous. The enemy has. the most dif ficult river in France behind him.

NO CONSCRIPTION. Big Demonstration in Braidwood. Majority of 250 to 10 Against Conscription. A crowded audience greeted Mr. Lestrange as he stepped on to the platform of ? the ? Literary In stitute to address a meeting of the electors of Braidwood against conscription. It was the largest meeting held here for very many years. Included in the audience were a large number of ladies. Mr. T. C. Musgrave occupied the chair. Mr. Lestrange ,whq was warmly received, expressed the pleasure it gave him to renew his ac quaintance with the people of Braidwool by addressing such a large audience. He- did not in tend to attempt any flights of oratory. He wanted, to confine himself to cold fact, and would be as simple and logical and tem perate in his langiiage as pos sible. This was not a time for wild appeal to sentiment. He was content to allow the conscrip tionists a monopoly of this com modity. The anti-conscriptionists wore under a great handicap.

Such men un less they ihad proved themselves first never 'got there if Kitchen er heard anything about it be forehand. One young officer ar rived and reported. Kitchener looked over him and asked cold-- ly: 'Do you know when the next steamer sails for England?' 'I haven't looked it up, sir,' was the answer.
