CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE'EDITOR; GALAH SHOOTING. Dear Sir—Kindly allow me space in your journal to point out to its readers the abominable; cruelty that. is allowed to take place ins our midst. I refer-to the galah matches.- ■ WKtft is 1 termed manly (?) sport is nothing■ less'than a relic of barbarism, and is in keeping with the Spanish bull fights—and- the old English- game of cockfighting. 1 The ■ latter'game was abolishedj'■Mien..through the process ■ of evolution, man's : mind   became .awakencd to- the .cruelty of 'the sport.' Just" so' is the catching," caging •and: 'finally shooting ot galahs. Some may exclaim, "that the -birds destroy the wheat," but since the use of drills the birds can do very little harm. In South Australia pigeon matches have   been prohibited—as cruelty to dumb ,     animals. And I hope in time all such' sport will be condemned.

A POSSIBLE NEW EMPIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 11 April 1913

A POSSIBLE NEW EMPIRE. If we aip lo believe the French journals, out of the smoke of [the Balkan War there is likely to emerge \i Mew political phenomenon of very astonishing" aize and quality. IL is not ito !bo ithe Germanic Holy Roman Empire, trans lated into modern terms, though this would be sufficiently astonishing, but something entirely new; a great Slav empire, midway betwixt Berlin and St. Petersburg, and independent of both;. That Nestor of living monarchs, the Emperor Francis Joseph, has outlived nearly all his)' contemporaries, and must plainly step off the stage at an early date. His heir, the1 Archduk'e Franz Ferdinand promises, it seems, to be a 'Inonarh of quite another type, with a taste for great adventures, The dream of one very astonishing venture, the French journals declare, has already taken possession of him', a ttrqam ^worthy of the most famous of his ancestors, Charles V.

GERMAN AIRSHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 11 April 1913

GERMAN AIRSHIPS. There has been quitei a scare in Eng land through an airship, supposed to be a German Zeppelin, flying over England English papers strongly advocate that England should f*o in more strenuously for airship building. Germany lias 35 airships, France 23, and England only 3 and these of inferior type. It appears that the Zeppelins can stay in the jsir from CO to 100 hours and do .journeys at 50 miles a4 hour, so that 'it 'is easy for airships to visit England from Heli goland, Germany's island in the Nortli bea. Says the "London Standard":— "We have noted the flying capacity f>f theZeppelin; now let us examine its powers of offence and defcnce. I have said that it is a bautleslvip of the jfsir: it carries quick-firing guns, forward' and aft, behind armoured screens, to repel j.n attack by hostile aircraft or for her own offensive purposes. But the chief aggressive work of the Zeppelin will be the dropping of high explosives upon the ships and forts and dockyards of t...
