General News. THE STOKER BOOMED. ' It would seem that . the stoker is doomed, at any rate ' as far as the British :".

Thc oil fuel, gives, .more, power, ton for. ton, than does the best coal, and its use simplifies' tho work of the stoke- hold to an enormous extent, More- over, the oil is smokeless, and tanks can be filled v from shore reservoirs very much more quickly and casíy thai! bunkers can be filled from shore supplies af . coal. Oil fuel is now. supplied to all new ships as an aux- iliary to coal, and it is used exclu- sively in the latest torpédo craik.

The chain is fastened loosely about 4in. or Mn. below the chain, so that tho hand ean he passed with ease on either side of tho neck.

THE GERMAN COURT SCANDALS. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 23 December 1907

THE GERMAN COURT SCANDALS., To Englishmen the procedure ,oi thc German Court» before which the actioc by Count Kimo, von Moltke against, liurr Harden, thor editor ? ol"' . Dio .ííuíC unit," was brought must appear strange says a home paper. The re- sult to must be unsatisfactory, as it is to Germans themselves ; and it is announced that the Count intends to appeal. Nobody apparently has a good word to say for Prince Kuleu. burg and some others of the so-call- ed Camarilla; but Count Moltke seems to have suffered moro for their offences than his own. Herr Hard en's object was to destroy their poli- tical .influence by proving criminal of- fences against them ; and though Count Moltke had very little to do | with politics he had to suffer, and Herr Harden ,was quite pitiless, though it was not necessary for iiis j polit ¡cal objects to go on with his va guo accusations agaist thc Count. He ¡made the trial what it was in order to push himself and the "Üuktunít."

Pid- dington declared that one AcS» could,' by implication,' annul another;,.. and" applied tho dictum to two/Vagnncy Acts of an old.date on the principle that the whole included thc part. He; however, found a' vjariatîpii-ï*\vhèn comparing, a Georgian Act," -under ?' which a¡ conviction for fortune-tell- ing had been sought by the police, with the modern Vagrancy ' Act. . Mt.

HOW GREAT RAILWAY DISASTERS ARE CAUSED. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 23 December 1907

HOW ó HEAT RAILWAY DISAS- TERS ARE CAUSED. That thc recent-terrible accident at Shrewsbury, said[ to ;be due to the train running .away seems now to V.c pretty conclusively,proved.' Probably., too, the Grantham one was .similarly caused; and possibly that at Salis- bury. " ' " Usually when "a locomotive takes thc bit between its teeth after ;this fashion and holts, thc men in chaise nf her are killed, and the engine it- self is reduced to scrap iron, thereby rendering it impossible to determine the reasoni thnt brought about her : fatal display of eccentricity. Occasionally, however, it is other- I wisc. When, for instance, on July 18 1803, thc connecting-rod of an engine which was drawing a CW.II. express between Winsor and Paddington sud- denly snapped, loth driver and fire- man stuck to their posts, and ¡tl though liorriiily scalded nnd fearfully burnt, succeeded in bringing their to a standstill. Then they foll of from opposite sides of tho engine; blinded and dying. Another cas...

THE KING AND TIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — Cairns Morning Post — 23 December 1907

THE KING AND TIPPING. "His Majesty the King by np means approves of tipping," says a . writer in the "World and his Wife," "ami does his level best lo suppress the practice. "In fact, he has induced several of his subjects to take stops in this dir- ection. For instance. Lord Carys- fort, who owns some of the best put up m thc hall at Clerant' Castus In this the guests are rc.-prcsted to drop their tips, and thc key is kept by the owner of the mansion. "And this plan is pursued in so.ve- I ral other big houses, notably nt Cro xteth, the home of _ Lord and Lady Softon, and nt Wynyard, the resi- lience last-mentioned houses a notice. appears in each Itedroom that no tips are to be given to the servants. This . is, of course, nu heroic remedy, and means higher wages to tho, entire household. It is worthy ,of note that not only King Edward, but other members of the Royal" Family have shown their dislike to reckless" ptc sent-glving." _ ~ ?
