"Stop Party Strife." [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

"Stop Party Strife." "Consistency" writes cogently : Sir,-For months past we have had thrown at us daily big head lines in the metropolitan papers, with echoes in the provincial sh'eets, "Stop Party Strife." The Refer endums were declared to be Party measures, and the people were told the money to be spent on them was awful waste. The Refer'endums have been dropped-tentatively,cer tainly-but is the Party strife stop ped? The Referendums were drop ped because the various State Pre miers agreed to pass measures han ding over to the Federal Parliament powers which the High Court says it does not now possess. The Pre miers by their agreement virtually bounc their various Parliaments to do whst they promised. Yet now we have a section of the Press ur ging those very Parliaments to go back on the Premiers and remo'el the agreement. Is this Party strife? Again: Mr. Fisher has resigned hzs -eat in Parliament, and already the Opposition has. a candidate in the field for that seat. Sir, I hav...

Roman Catholic Claims. THE CHURCH AND THE CHILD. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

Roman Catholic Claims. THE CHURCH AND THE CHILD. Under the auspices of the Catho lic Workers' Association, a lecture, entitled "The Catholic Church, the Working man, and His Child," was delivered by the Rev. W. J. Lockington. S.J., at the Cathedral Hall Fitzroy, on Sunday afternoon. The president, Mr. E. Adams, pre sided. In the course of his lecture, Fa ther Lockington said that there was nothing unreasonable in the Catholic claims fo r payment for secular teaching in their. schools, and if they were granted the result would be a benefit to Australia, as they had been in other countries in which they had been agreed to. He would not deal with any ob jections which were raised by big ots. Today, when Australians of all creeds were fighting in the trenches in defence of the Empire there should be no place in Aus tralia for bigots. It was said that Catholics wanted payment for their religion. That was not so. God help the Catholic who wanted payment for his religion. Others said that ...

The War. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

The War. After a spell of barrenness of new , the cables are getting more interesting. The new commander of opera tions at Gallipoli, Sir Charles Monro, has arrived at Saloni!ka with numerous troops. The advance of the Allies is in creasing the difficulties of the Bul garians. Servians to the number of 5000, held a pass against 20,000 Bulgarians equipped with superior artillery. The Servians are fight ing gamely and their retreats are masterly, no material being aban doned. E20, a British submarine, has been sunk in the Dardanelles. From several sources informa tion is to hand that Germany is faced with a shortage of men to repair the wastage in her armies. This should encourage recruiting, so that the war may be ended soon. An extraordinary report is to hand that Germany is intending an attack on Suez Canal. but prompt measures to defend that, point will mean disaster to the in vaders. Italy has definitely joined in the Gallipoli campaign. An Italian warship is at Salonika. Owing t...

"Follow The King." [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

"Follow The King." Britain's drink bill for six months from the start of the "Follow the King" farce, was eight million pounds greater than for the previous six_ months.-(News Item.). We are fighting for our liberty, and fight ing for the right; We're fighting cruel oppression and a brutal armed might; We seem to make no headway. No, what ever we may do, Our statesmen lay the blame on beer and bottled firey dew. We're fighting Anstro-Germany, and tur banned pagan Turk. They've thrown the gauntlet down, and now the job we cannot shirk. We're fighting transport risks, and other problems great and small, But Asquith is confident that drinkl]is worst of all. We are fighting poisoned gas and flame, and deadly submarines; WVe're fighting money markets to get the needful "beans." We're fighting aeroplanes and mines,and sickness hard to banish, I And likewise some discouragement by facts we do not relish.

A Horse Beats A Train. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

A gorse Beats A Train. As the Spokane express was out bound a few days ago (an Ameaican paper relates) a bay hourse about sixteen hands high, and a most beautiful specimen, according to those who saw it, took fright at the approaching train while feeding in a pasture alongside the track about one mile this side of Fairview and then starting down the tract ran for seven miles at almost top speed down the centre of the track in front of the train. In that seven miles the horse jumped sixteen cattle-guards, an-i ran at a good rate across a common railway bridge, about sixty feet in length, without a slip. He was only scared off the line when the train entered Troutdale, and when, at the call of the whistle of the lo comotive, the station agent there and emploves of a near-by livery stable, cornered and caught him with a lariat. Most remarkable of the whole thing was the speed which the horse kept up in the distance. The only time that the train slowed down perceptibly, was at the bridg...

Here, There, And Everywhere. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

Here, There, And Every= where. Ihcluded in late lists of those passed out temporarily from the front is Pte. G. C. Lachal, former ly a well-known solicitor at Woo melang. Another ex-WVoomelang solicitor, in Mr. H. W. Browne, is training at London. One can't be too careful. Last week Mr. J. T. Lang dec;ded to. clean out a bin which was used last 3ear for phosphorised pollard. There was not a great deal of the mixture left, and this was cast aside. Unfortunately a milking cow found the cast-off stuff very appetising, and she swallowed the lot before being noticed. Mr. Lang is lahnenting the loss of a good cow, and-well the stable door will be locked in time in fu ture. The anticipated shortage of har vest labor has failed to materialise. Men are offering in greater num bers than there is a demand for just at present, and some have been lured by extraordinary re ports as to the wages offering. Tales are told of men giving un employment at i0/'a day to come to the Mallee where, they had...

Pure Seeds. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 17 November 1915

Pure Seeds. In Maine, U.S.A., stringent leg islation in respect to the purity or freedom from foreign seeds of agri cultural seeds is enforced. Every lot of seed sold, offered or exposed for sale must be accompaniad by a written or printed guarantee of the percentage of purity. The experi ment station undertakes, free of cost, to examine any samples sent in by dealers and others, in order to assist them to decide as to the quality of the seeds. `While it is admitted by the authorities that the Maine wholesale houses cannot purchase outside the State any seeds with the necessary guarantee, it is pointed out that no outside dealer can sell in Maine State, and consequently any expense or trouble the former are put to in testing seed is more than balanced by the fact that they have the command of the local trade. In the tests made by the station in 1907 it was found that a consider able number of samples were under 90 per cent. One sample of "Choice Clover" contained 24.6 per cent. impu...

The Pops. While not the largest audience, that of Friday night proved a most appreciative one. The program in- cluded all the favorites-Mesdames Rees and Gillespie, Misses Irvine and Bell, Messrs Valentine and Nulty (the last named being en - cored). Miss E. Bell played an overture, and a dialogue entitled "The Backward Scholar," between the Misses A. and D. Bell proved one of the most enjoyable items of the evening. The second part was filled in with a comedietta, Turn Him Out, the characters being filled by Messrs Valentine, Telford and Hainpel, and Misses Walsh and Willoughby. Next Friday night another good program is pro- mised, while the dances seem to be gaining in popularity and social en- joyment.

The War. [Newspaper Article] — Ouyen Mail — 22 November 1915

The War. It becomes more evident that the Germans are about to attack in force on either the Fast or the West front, but which one it will be is not clear. In the Riga region the enemy lines must be weak, because at several points they have been pierced by Russians in pursuit of reconnoitring parties. The French artillery has been busily engaged on the West front, and with excellent results. A new knot in the Balkans tangle is the position of Greece in the event of a German invasion, which is threatened. Some messages from Athens sav that the Greek G -vernment would regard su:h a happening in the most serious light, while, accord ing to a Salonika despatch, Greece is prepared to leave space in her territory in which the bellige-rents can fight it out. There are now 80,000 Italians in Albania. The events at Washington fol lowing on the receipt of Austria's Note in reply to the American protest concerning the sinking of the Ancona, bear a resemblance to those which became so familiar ...
