PATRIOTISM OF THE FRENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
PATRIOTISM OF THE FRENCH. I Enormous sums of money have been raised in Great Britain to carry 011 the war, and rich and poor alike have contributed their portions. The same enthusiasm exists in France. Statistics bearing on the gold reserve of the Bank of France since the out break of war illustrate, to a very re markable extent, the splendid patriot ism and confidence of citizens of all classes in France, who have respond ed to the appeal made 'to them to ex change the gold specie in their pos session for its equivalent in French bank-notes. From that moment a steady stream of gold has not ceased to flow into the coffers of the bank; ond to-day, after two years of tre mendous strain on t'ao resources of the country, the French gold reserve Is actually greater by 28 millions sterling than it was 011 August 1, 1914. At that date it stood at a little over four milliards of francs, or 160 mil lions sterling. By October it had weakened to the extent of a quarter of a million sterling, b...

The British Empire in Arms. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
The British Empire in Arms. Now that the Army is practically the Nation, and there is scarcely a family which is not represented in one cr other branch of the . service, such a volume as the "Wonder Book of Soldiers" supplies a very real need. It was first published, oppor tunely, just before the outbreak of war, and after having run through several large editions, now makes its appearance in a new and greatly im proved form, with many fresh fea tures based on the experience of the present conflict. Though apparently intended chiefly for boys and girls, it is, in fact, an up-to-date primer on all subjects of military knowledge and interest, conveying a wealth of accurate and authoritative informa tion in an easily assimilated form. There are nearly three hundred pho tographs depicting almost every phase of army life in peace and war, and ten beautiful colored plates (four of them double pages, 12in. by 8in.) by such well-known military ar tists as John Charlton, W. B. Wollen, and Ma...

. The Open Column. LWe do not necessarily identify ourselves with opinions expressed in these columns.] AUSTRALIA AND THE EMPIRE. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-At every general election since Federation tbe electors have given a decided majority for protection to Aus tralian industry, following the example of America, Germany, Fiance, Russia and Japan. Mr Foster Fraser's book, "America at Work," should be read by all thoughtful Australians. Just now, when tbe Mother Country is straiuing every nerve turning out munitions of war, the greater part of the industries must of necessity be neglected by the rapid and violent displacement of labor. Neutral countries are making colossal fortunes out of this war, and many fears are entertained regarding the great in flux of gold-eveu Japan's gold specie has risen from 35 to 65 millions out of war trade alone. It is hardly to our credit as a nation that we should be re minded by Mr Lloyd George the best way to help the Empire is to produce and manufactur...

THE GROWTH Of TRUSTEE COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
THE GROWTH Of TRUSTEE COMPANIES. Trustee companies liave prolific growth in Victoria, where there are eight established as against three in New South Wales and two in Queens land. It is a great testimony to the work done by the older companies here, and the general esteom in which they are held, that other competitors should be attracted, and apparently with some measure of success, to this field of commercial activity. We do not infer that the reputation of the com panies in the neighboring States is less. We merely state that commer cial enterprise is evidently more di rected to this class of business in Victoria than in the other Stotes, and this. enterprise finds encouragement in the reputation borne by the exist ing companies. Strangely enough, with all this packing, comparatively speaking, of opposition, only one com pany has ventured to extend its sphere of operations. The Union Trustee Company of Australia Limited was first establish ed in Victoria in 1885, and live years la...

"You Go; I Follow."—Y.M.C.A. to the Troops. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
"You Go; I Follow."-Y.M.C.A. to the Troops. That the scope of the activities' of the Y.M.C.A. is practically limitless is heing demonstrated week by week as reports from all quarters of the Empire reach the national committee of the association in Australia. On all the battle-fronts the Red Triangle is the conspicuous emblem of whole hearted service to the men, while in other countries, wherever soldiers are stationed, the "Y.M." is more than ever the synonym of the soldiers' "Home away from Home." From Colombo come line accounts of the work of the association. "The op portunity for service among troops at this centre is unlimited," says the lending newspaper of Ceylon. "Trans ports from the outposts of Europe are constantly calling at this port, and when soldiers have been on board a ship for days, and weeks, the first thing they look for is a place where they can have rest, refreshment and relaxation."

Wealth of the District. £88,102 ON DEPOSIT. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 1 December 1916
Wealth of the District /S8.102 ON DEPOSIT. VERY frequently the uxpression iB made use of that the bright district is done. Work ia| scarce, money tight, and generally things are bad, and the out look for future prosperity very uncertain indeed. There \B a certain amount of truth in the statement, but much can be attributed to the war and its attendant disturbing influences. It is also quite true thai mining-on which our prosperity largely depends-is dull, but that as a prevailing epidemic, and not confined to one portion of the State only. Bearing in mind all the6e various drawbacks, it is very satisfactory to note that our people have realised that it is wise always to provide for the proverbial "rainy day," and a glance at the figures issued by the local State savings bank foi the year ended June 30tb, 1916, show that they have done so in a very practical way. The State Savings bank is regarded as the peoples' in stitution, inasmuch as it differs in some respects from other banks ...
