Whisky and Soda. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 12 January 1915
Whisky and Soda. Every national crisis brings forth at least one great man. It so hap pened when the tremendous hubbub about the increased price of driuks was loudest throughout the laud— when whiskies and sodas were nine pence —that two men went into a city bar, and while one called for a whisky the other asked for a bottle of sodawater. Each paid for his own drink—sixpence for the spirits and threepence for the soda. The one poured out a stiff nobbier of whiskVi and put half of it in his friend's glass. They enjoyed two whiskies and sodas for ninepence, to the horror of the " house." The frantic licensee rushed to the telephone, and unburdened himself of his mournful tale to the trade. The price of whisky and soda is tiotf sevfenpeuce.

Germany's Internal Dangers. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 12 January 1915
Germany's Internal Dangers. That tlii* .i,denial danger, of Germany arising frysu the exclusion of raw material for her factories is recognised in Berlin to be a terribly serious one is evident from what the! German Socialist organ Vorwaerib says:—"It is not wise," declares the Vorwaerib. " to underrate the danger of the war lauing a long time. With regard to food, one or two years do not matter, but. the supply of raw materials for our iuduslries is not a thing to be regarded lightly. JGermany needs an enormous import of wdol, cotton silk, flax, timber, oil, copper, lead zinc, leather, and rubber if a great part of the country's factories are not to stand still. The English bave not dared to blockade our harbors fpr fear of our mines, torpedo boats, and submarines. But the national law of maritime warfare gives them other means of cutting off out imports.

Taxing the Printer. TO THIS EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 12 January 1915
Taxing the Printer. TO THIS EDITOR. Sir,—The new tariff includes a number of new as well as increased taxes for tlie printer lo pay. Of course protectionist papers will now feel a new joy in living, as these taxej will enable them to test the physic they have prescribed for other people. At the same time it is rather hard on the ordinary printer. The drought and war bad already given him enough to go on with. This applies with spscial force in many country districts. Increased taxes on printing supplies and accessories have come at the worst possible time. Perhaps the Government thinks that more protection is a good way to have a slap at the press. Friend and foe will suffer alike, but as il considers that the bulk of the press is more or. less hostile, its friends must pay up and fook pleasant Here is a short table showing some of the printer's requirements aud the taxes paid under the Lyne tariff, in 19.13.
