AUSTRALIA'S CLAIM TO GOVERN THE NEW HEBRIDES [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

AUSTRALIA'S CLAIM TO GOVERN THE NEW IEI3RIDES 1+ In the question of the control of the Now Hebrides by Australia, Mo3srs. Cook and Glynn have a subject of wide national importance and signti flcance to tackle, Much dissatisfac tion. is felt and expressed at the pre sent system of joint control of Bri tain and France, and the partnership is working mischievously for all con cerned, the unfortunate natives suf fering an undue share of injustice and ill-treatment. Geographically the Islands come naturally under Australian jurisdic tion. They are 1,400 miles north-east of Sydney, and a port of call be tween Fiji and New Caledonia. Their three magnificent natural harbours would be of special value to the Com monwealth, and would form an ideal naval base; while the occupation of these islands by a hostile foreign Power would open a road of attack on the Australian trade of the future, and seriously affect the disposition of our defence system. The group is wonderfully fertile,' and provid...

A WORD OF CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

A WORD OF CRITICISM. Underlying those heaven-sent gifts of infinite tact and kindly diplomacy which are characteristic of Australia's High Commissioner, there runs a streak of keen criticism and clear in a?ght which is sometimes turned upon our foibles, and which it behoves no to mark, learn, and inwardly digest. In a recent speech Sir George Reid unburdened himself thus -"The fatal thing about Australians is that they are so busy admiring their own pro gress and their own intelligence, that they are forgetting the enormous tasks which lie before them." A valuable and conscientious opi nion of this kind, and from this souree is not to be disregarded ; and perhaps the greatest incubus to indi vidual and national development is an undue supply of self-complacency. We who lie on the world's outskirts are peculiarly liable to lose the broad outlook, and to become narrow and self-centred in our ideas; and the travelling Australian frequently finds himself forced to reorganise some of his...

A VALUABLE OPINION. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

A VALUABLE OPINION. Mr. Justice Bevan, who has held of. fice for nearly two years in the Ter ritory, holds a sound, optimistic opinion as to that country's chances for a successful future. "The problem of this part of Aus tralia is economic rather than clima tic," ho'e says. "I have not even a shadow of doubt; that the Territory can be successfully occupied by white people, as far as climate goes, but just now the question is how it can be made profitable. Nothing would assist development more than the discovery of payable goldfields, In some localities money has been spent on a lavish scale, but not in the di. rection of proving the payableness of the leases. "While there are other sources of wealth in the Territory, the -opening up of permanent mineral fields would dQ more than anything else to pro mote settlement, and create a de mand for agricultural produce. There are possibilities of development in the frozen meat trade. The establishment of, works at Darwin would enable us to...

Ferguson presiding, Mr S. Mauger one of the selected six Liberal can. didates for the Senate was the first to speak, and was accorded a very fair hearing, he said a radical change was wantedl in the present system of Government, the position, that machine had to be met with machine was not democracy, The Liberals were going for preferential voting in the Representatives, and pro portional representation in the Senate. Referring to the National Bank establishe:d by the Labor Government he (Mr Manger) had not met anyone who had benefited by it, The s.stem of equality for all would not work, Mr Fisher had searched Australia for a manager for the bank who was paid a salary of £5000 the clerks received 42.10.0 per week.

"AUSTRALIA UNLIMITED." [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

" AUSTRALIA UNLIMITED." A glance at the figures which irri gationists have to pay for land and .water in other countries shows us under what benign conditions .their lot is cast in Australia. Experts, after minute investigations both here and abroad, unhesitatingly aver that the Commonwealth offers the irrigationist opportunities second to none, while the land and water are comparative ly cheap here. Western America leads the way in orcharding, the apples of the Hood River and Spokane districts being the finest in the world. This success is not attributable to any particular superiority of land, but to the scien tific and complete system of culture to which the growers there have at tained. Many of these orchards are, . and have been for years, under irrigation, but it is in their system of grading that the farmers are pre-eminent. Colour as well as size must be to a recognised standard, and 'by thinning the trees they keep them well open, thus iniuring a good colour as well as good...

EVOLUTION OF THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

EVOLUTION OF THE HORSE, By the law of compensation Nature is evidently busy re-adjusting mat ters, In these days of humans de veloping vegetarian tastes, it is not surprising to learn that horses, to equalise matters, are suddenly be coming carnivorous. A peaceful country animal who' had previously led the simple life and satisfied his appetite on chaff, with an occasional flavour of oats introduced, was left standing in front of a Melbourne res taurant by his unsuspecting owner recently. Like all young creatures, the horse was impressionable, and the tempta tions of oty, life allied to the heady whiffs of steak and onions which emanated from the open door, prov ed too much for his serenity, and un hesitatingly he kicked over his chaff box and tramped into the dining room. Unfortunately he had reckono, without his cart, which Jammed' in the doorway and stopped his entry, A wild glare of unsatisfied desire shonb in his eyes, which gave back stare for stare of the amazed diners.

THE WORLD'S GREAT NAVIES. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

THE WORLD'S GREAT NAVIES. The question of the upkeep, growth and expansion of the British Navy is one which vitally affects Australia, and as the time for the announce meht of the British Naval estimates falls due, the Commonwealth shares with the rest of the world in the in terests involved in the answer which Britain makes to the enormous ad vance in naval expenditure amongst other nations. Seven years back the naval esti mate of £34,600,000 was regarded as excessive; to-day something over £i51,l000,000 is the amount which is to be spent during the forthcoming year. The question which agitates states men and thinkers of to-day, is how in the future it will be possible to keep pace with such an enormous rate of increase, The great consola tion that Britishers possess is the knowledge that our huge navy owes its being entirely to British revenue, while most foreign countries - Ger many, for instance-are undergoing a financial draining through having had recourse to loan moneys.

AN ANCIENT WEAPON. [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

AN ANOIENNT WEAPON, A curious stone weapon, extremely heavy and shaped like a "mere" (a emall and effective Maori club), but fitted with a long. handle, was recent ly found by a New Zealander in a , cave in the Waikaremoana district. It is so heavy that it requires two hand to lift it, and it is not therefore likely to have been a weapon car ried in battte. Some of the Maoris themselves suppose it was merely used for dispatching prisoners taken in war, others that it was left in the cave by To Kooti in his historic trek from Waikaremoana in the 70's. The, probability is that it is very much older, and belonged to the 'Tuhoe or Urewera people, who fought in the earlier days all over that district.

As the New Day is dlawning the curse ib rolling away, and iblessings are taking its place. Hence Bible students to-day see new liaht in texta ong considered dark. The text to lay was of this charscter, Is yives Jesus the. title "everlasting Father," the Father who gives ever lasting life. At one time it seemed to coa tradict other Scriptures; for instance, the tidl:iration "The God and Father of our .ord Jesus Christ hath begotten us," "My Father and your Father," "My God and Vour God," ind other texts.

Great Britain at War Germany, France, Russia, Austria, Italy, Servia all concerned [Newspaper Article] — Moorabbin News — 8 August 1914

Great Britain at War Germany, France, Russia, Austria, Italy, Serbia all concerned The metropolitan papers have dealt so exhaustively with-the above subject per means of ordinary and extraordinary editions that we can scarcely add anything new, except perhaps to say that some of the latter editions were extraordinary indeed. The fact remains, however, that throughout the whole of Europe the country is in a state of upheaval, which may take months to settle, perhaps weeks-let us hope the latter. The Commonwealth and various State governments of Australia have taken prompt action to offer any help to England when- ever it is needed. The citizens are behind this action, as is evident from the great enthusiasm shown on many occasions during the past week. The 46th Infantry which covers the whole cf our district and in- cludes many towns in Gippsland, mustered at the Dlill Room at Rippon Lea yesterday, and left for Queenscliff yesterday amidst perfect order and great enthusiasm. One of t...
