CRICKET OR BASEBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

CRICKET' OR BASEBALL. The avowed object of the visit of the American baseballers to Austra lia is to try and arouse some enthus iasm here for the game. At present we have some 32 clubs in and around Melbourne devoted to the game, and yet the public know practically noth ing about it. Jfhe present visit is a peculiar on™ The promoter, Mr Comiskey, pays all the expenses, in-, eluding the salaries of the players and this means, a yery bit; sum. As Comiskey lives by the game, it is to be presumed he sees some means whereby he hopes to recoup himself in the long run. The undertaking is Gertainly a plucky one, and just at present he has one thing in his favor. Cricket for many reasons is out of favor just now, and it may be that the American baseball game may take its place as a public favor ite among summer games. Hitherto baseball has been played in Melbourne as a winter game, whereas its true place i3 among summer pastimes, al though, after the strenuous display given by llio "Giants-W...

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER ELECTRIC RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER From Our Own Correspondent. ELECTRIC RAILWAYS. Among the many projects of the self styled country policy of the Watt Ministry is the scheme for the electrification of the suburban railways. This immense work will cost the country 6 or 8 millions sterling, while its success, from a rail way point of view, is not absolutely cer tain. That it would be of great advan tage to metropolitan travellers in the long run is sure enough, but the question is, will they pay for it ? Already the metropolis has one electric railway rim by the Government, which is, undoubtedly, of great convenience to the people of the district concernod, but the loss involved has to be borne by the community as a whole, and this means by the producers. Other electric trams in the same district either pay for themselves, er the losses are met out of the local rate payers own funds. The St. Kilda Brighton lino is, however, a Govern ment affair, and under Government management means a heavy annual...

OUTLOOK FOR LIBERALISM. WARNING AGAINST APATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

outlo'jk for liberalism. WARNING AGAINST APATHY. The outlook for Liberalism at the commencement of the new year oc casions no serious misgiving in virile Liberal?, who believe in themselves aiul their cause. It is true, perhaps, never more so, that there are exceed ing strenuous times immediately ahead. The succession of highly pros-' pcrous years has quickened the in stinct io spring forward : to press on with shapiug the national future almost to the point of recklessness. The old quip has it that it was only when the devil was sick that the devil a monk would be. And so it is in point of fact with communities in the day of prosperity. They take their destiny in both hands and spring for ward, risking the while those errors that may accompany experiment and which may bo rectified before their consequences are grave or abiding. The demand is for leadership : for statesmen capable of interpreting the po:ni!ar desire, of outlining it in a dcfi'ii'e progressive policy, and of educatin...

NEW EXHIBIT BV RICHARDS AND CO. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

HEW EXHIBIT BV RICHARDS', AND GO. The Christmas display by Richard & Co. is usually looked forward to with keen interest by the public, as being an exhibition of the very high est achievement in artistic photo graphing, and it is no exaggeration to claim that this high standard is perfectly maintained, if not surpassed by the magnificent exhibit opened last evening. The work of the master-hand is evident in each of the beautiful studies, and the competent critic will discern an artistic pro gression, for this display is a distinct adyance upon the last. Each study shows artistic feeling, atmosphere and refinement of treatment, together with dignified yet restful posing, and delicacy and taste in the arrange ment of the background and acces sories, not often to be found in photo graphy. In fact these are pictures in the truest sense, made with the aid ot the camera. The public should take the earliest opportunity of viewing these gems of modern art portraiture. The large cent...

ELECTIVE MAGISTRATES [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

ELECTIVE MAGISTRATES The Page incident at the Port Mel bourne court has boon the moans of drawing attention to a hitherto un noticed phase of the introduction of party polities into municipal life. In the United States we know the elec tive system for magistrates and offic ials generally has been productive of corruption of the worst kind and, from the taint of this, v/e have congratu lated ourselves as being free. Mr Page, however, elected Mayor on a party ticket is Justice of the Peaca for two years, and has shown the public to what length he is pcsjnred to 50. When Mr Webber, shunned at "Rich mond for his disloyalty, cou'd get no one else to sit on the Bench with hira, the valiant Mr Page came across from Port Melbourne and the pair dispens ed Labori to justice to Richmond liti gants. What kind of justice that •would be one hesitates to say con sidering Mr Page's performance at Port Melbourne, where, after failing to bully the Bench, he openly avowed a previous conviction of stre...

OUTRAGES ON LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

OUTRAGES ON LABOUR. The Labour Party in Victoria has I lately been having some vory unfair treatment. First of all we had the 4.5 non Labouc members of Parlia ment refusing to let the Labour 20 | run Lho Government show, and draw 1 Ministerial emoluments. That has well been described as treachery and meanness of the basest kind. Then, | down at Port Melbourne, we have the Socialist Mayor, Mr Page, sat upon by a hard hearted police magis trate, and ordered to be quiet, just as if he were a common person, when he tried to show that his son should not be punished for street gambling, to which he hid pleaded guilty. Latest oufraae of all is the closing of Parliament House by Speaker John son, so that the House officials might havo one or two days absolute holi day. This is a high handed outrage, according to- some Labour members, who insist Parliament House should be open to members at all times, and that there should always be in at tendance a host of messengers to wait upon lheir High...

MODERN SAVAGES. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

MODERN SAVAGES. Some of our cable matter recently has made very interesting peculiar reading. From the rep<prt of the Alsace Lorraine Court Martial we learned ono of the high military authorities instructed his soldiers always to punish offending civilians in such a way that they could be easily identified. In the same paper there is a cabled account of a little incident in south-eastern Russia (Caucasia), that might give the Gor man military autocrats a hiut on punishing so as to identify, There some disappointed, house breaker cut off a farmer's nose, slit his ears, chopped bis fingers off, and finally set the old gentleman on firo, just as a mild protest against his meanness in having no money when these high spirited fellows came to call. They outraged and killed the females of the establishment, and banged the child ren's heads against the walls until they died in the same spirit of pro test, but there can be little doubt the victims of these assaults were easily ide...

THE GREAT JANSEN. A MASTER OF MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

THE GREAT JANSEN ;o A. MASTER OF MYSTERY. In a less enlightened community it would probably be claimed that Jansen was a necromancer of the deepest dye, and it would be more than hinted that he had sold his soul to the Prince of Darkness. A suggestion that the principal would be present at the performance would then pack any theatre. He is an illusionist, a conjuror, and an actor all rolled into one. At one moment he is a wizard, not producing coins from the atmosphere, but making the most unlookod for articles material ised from space. Apparently he owns an invisible poultry farm, a shooting preserve, and a drapery emporium, and it is only necessary for him to think of any article, from a lady's glove to a white rabbit, to have the thing take form under the eyes of_ the audience. But this is only a'Very minor part of the show. His star turns, " The Phantom Prin cess,1' '' The Invisible Flight," " The Death Chamber," to quote only a few are weird, creepy illusions that make the onlo...

WHEATS FOR SEED AT WERRIBEE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 13 January 1914

WHEATS FOR SEED AT WERRIBEE . These comprise a series of eighteen varieties of whnat, sown last year at Wcrribeo in blocks varying from 2 A up to 10 acres. The wheats in this series are true to type, and the yield was intended for distribution, in small lots, to farmers, so that plots may bo sown by each to fur nish his own bulk seed for 1915. By so maintaining type, the deterioration of wheat varieties, which is continually notod, may be obviated. We hope the Nhill farmers will secure some of the varieties given below. 1. Bob3—Produced by Farrer. An excellent milling wheat. Suited to coastal districts. 2. Warren—This variety is suitable for both hay and grain, and is very pro lific in the coastral districts of New South Wales. 8. Marshall's No. 3—Avery popular wheat, largely grown both for hay and grain. 4. Gluyas—Very popular in the Mal ice districts of South Australia, on account of its early maturity, its rust resistance, and drought resistance. A vigorous grower, but somewhat w...
