A OHARACTER SKETCH. (Br W. SMITrznsa GADD, J.P.) Cr. Leslie W. Clarke has for the fifth successive year been elected'Pre sident of the Wlhittlesen Shire. To enjoy such a distinctive honour is cyrtainly a privilege, which few have had. the opportunity of. realising. By his fillow councillors it is a flattering coipliment to pay, and a record in Lrcal Government achievements, and further, it is a convincing proof and a mark of appreciation of his sterling qualitieaand. probity ;. it is a reoogni. fion of his wealth of intellect, urbanity, and amenity. President Clark has shown an altrustic desire-to do his best for the country in which he lives, and a determination to follow the dictates of an honest and' conscientious spirit. lie has displayed a capacity of business neumoret and a comprehensiveness in every day, life which is evidence of a morale above-the run of the ordinary man.:He was born, bred and educated to be a gentleman even in his early youth,-and the prognostications of hi...

In the Metropolis there weoe route marches of troops, opeeches by prominent men and hands planying at street corners. Over head, aeroplanes hummled their way through the clouds. They nose-dived, side.slipped, banked and zioomed, and behind them always they left a trail of literature fluttering and swirling down to earth. Froru shops, warehousos, clubs and offices, flags and hunting streamoed, while around the streets four great tanks 19mbered their more than cumnbersome way. And it was all with one olheotive. iThe enthusiasm of every man anod womann, every boy and girl, had to be awakened; everyone had to he made aware of tihe fact that once more Australia was asking of her own peoloe a loan in order that she might be enabled to continu ' with pride to take her place among the nations of theo world who are fighting to crush fo...

OUR EMPIRE'S CAUSE A Just War—Belgium and Ourselves [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 20 September 1918

OUR EMPIRE'S CAUSE A Just War — Belgium and Ourselves In our last article, all eligibles were earnestly asked to enlist at once, and it was shown that the justice of the Empire's cause left them no pretext for not doing so. All who are still holding back are asked to ponder these further facts. Even apart from the invasion of Bel-   gium, our Empire was bound to come into the War in order to honor its obllgations to its Ally, France, who was fighting for dear life after having striven for peace with Germany for forty-three years, in the face of almost intolerable provocation. As a result of our naval treaty with her, she had withdrawn her warships from the North Sea to the Mediterranean on the understanding that we would guard her western coast. We made it abundantly clear to Germany through the nego- tiations that we would not betray France, and that if Germany attacked her we would fight.   Yet it was the wanton invasion of Belgium perhaps even more than ...

TORPEDOING OF THE "BARUNGA." [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 20 September 1918

TORPEDOING OF THE "BARUNGA."     In a letter to his parents at Kanga- roo Ground, Private C. T. Harris gives the following realistic description of the torpedoing of "D16" :— We left Littlemore Camp on the 10th July and entrained for Plymouth. It was a beautiful run through Devon and I was in love with that county, which is far and away the prettiest I have seen in England. That evening we embarked on D16 — that ill-fated old German tub. She was captured in Australian waters at the out-break of war — she was then on her maiden voyage I believe. We soon heard a weird tale how she was missed by a torpedo by a mere miracle whilst com- ing around from London. Then another rumour was afloat how she got into a mine-field and only for some destroyers coming along she was a goner. Well, we were towed out that same evening into the harbour where she endeavoured to cast anchor; she slipped the first anchor, so it is some where down in Davy Jones' locker. She then cas...

The only dilffrence between the two is that the one marked thoe opening of the Seventh War Loon campaign, and the other will mark the closing. Thero are still four weeks to go before October 15. Twenty eight days of twenty four hours each, in whioh every loyal Australian should got busy and make sure th.t everybody subscribes som.e sum,loarge or small, to the £4 0.000 000 which the Government must bhave for war purposes and war purposes only. There are a host of reasons why Australians should subsoribe to the War Loan. There is not one reason why even the poorest man should stand out. This loan is Australians word to the m-n fighting overseas, the word that tells them the peoplo at home are behind them now as they were at the beginning. Nobody ir asked to take say chances when they invest in thi...
