THE HOUSE OF HAPSBURG. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916

THE HOUSE OF HAPSBURG. SThe reign of Franz Josef, Em-1 peror of Austria, closes, as it began, in war, bloodshed, and internalI trouble. He was called to the throne of his feeble uncle Ferdin and in 1848, as a boy of 18, when all : Europe was in insurrection against arbitrary sovereigns. Louis Philippe 19.s driven from the throne of France; northern Italy was in re-I volt against Austrian domination:;' Hungary was boldly demanding free dom under the leadership of the heroic Kossuth; and all the military power that had been accumulated since the Napoleonic wars was re quired to keep-the autocratic Hohen zollerns on the Prussian throne. Sixty-eight years have elapsed sinice then, and Europe is still in the throes of conflict for freedom; but .with all the fighting power of Ger many and Austria embattled on- the side of arbitrary bureaucraticism and'military despotism. How such a he'erogeneous collection of races, creeds, nationalities, and countries as Austria has been so long kept{ to...

SHOUTING AND TEETOTALISM [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916

SROUTING -AND TEETOTALISM Years ago Mr. Alfred Deakin,when Prime Minister of the Common- wealth, initiated an Anti-Shout ng League, which very soon dissolved through lack of sympathy in Mar vellous Melbourne and the great Australian Palaver House. - Later on, Dean Mercer established an Anti-Shouting, Society, Ltd.; in Perth, but it speedily went into liquidation. There Wras no business doing for a combination which in itialled itself "A.S.S." Then again,' when the Kitchener Pledge was the great patriotic war vogue, our Legis lative Council introduced an anti-: shouting clause into the Liquor Sale Bill. But it failed to materialise in thc. statute book-though the late Frank Connor intimated that he would abandon opposition, if "a bob in," "selling a horse," "Tamba roora," et hoc genus omne, were in eluded. But that was not the end of it; for this session Mr. J. J.. Hlolmes--who evidently has no sym-: pathy with the Premier's proposal to levy a 15 per cent. tax on the, retail price of...

THE RED CROSS SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916

THE RED CROSS SOCIETY. Kinglake tells us in graphic lali guage of the wretchedness and mis ery and unnecessary illnesses which men endured in the fighting line in the Criinea. The black, inranitary days of the Indian Mutiny are re lated by Holmes. and the fatal toll of death through disease in the South African War is known to all; but to-day, although war has new. terrors and German frightfulness hlas added strange horrors to civilised warfare, we have less to fear for our fighting men from disease than ever before, and for these new con ditions whereby suffering is miti gated and discomfort discounted we have to thank, if not wholly, still to a very large extent, the Red Cross Society. The Crimean War of 1854-55 was one of the least cred itable wars in which England has ever engaged, but out of the mud dle and incompetence of its conduct shines the vision of "The Lady With the Lamp." Florence Nightingale and her band of nurses by their skill, their bravery, and their heroic humani...

AUSfIiALIA A1D T'E WAR Melbourne, Dec. 7. In the .House of Representatives. to-dity, Mr. Hannan, continuing his unfinished speech of the previous evening, said that the soldiers at the front had mostly voted against conscription. Australia had raised a larger army than any other Do minion, and could send few more men. Mr. Cook: Then ,we have done enough ? Mr. Hannan: There is a limit, and it has been almost reached. He would be consistently opposed to the Government. Mr. Cook said that neither Mr. Hannan nor Mr. Tudor had said one word as to how the war was to be won. Continuing, he-said that many men here seemed to have a complete misapnrehension of v the war position. They were apparent ly governed by a resolution carried at a conference the previous day. To talk of peace at the present time was in the interests of Germany and Austria, and Bulgaria and Turkey. Mr. Hampson: We have killed millions of men; let us go on kill ing some more.

HOW TO SAVE RUMANIA. STRIKE HARD AT THE GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916

HOW TO SAVE BUMAMIA. /STRIKE HARD AT THE ;GERMANS. ((By Lovat Fraser in the :-London "Daily Mail,1' Oct. 1). The allies have hadd an anxiou fortnight about Rumania, but there is reason to believe that as a re sult of measures now being taken "the danger is diminishing. Direct- measures apart. the best way Ito help Rumania is to prevent the flow of reinforcements, to Tran sylvania by striking hard at the enemy upon all fronts. The, Ger manas are being hit hardest on the Somme. Every fresh blow struck by Sir Douglas Haig on the Somme, tends to relieve Rumania from .peril. Our people are a little puzzled about the Rumanian campaign,, partly because trustworthy inforina tion on the subject is very scanty. They ask how it has come to pass that Rumania, whose entry ,into the 'war was experted to strengthen the cause of the -allies, should ?lmosA' instantly need succour/instead. (This is not the right way to look at -Rumanian intervention, the bene -fits of which will be very clearly ap pa...

REMEMBER THE VANQUISHED ARMY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916

REMEMBER THE VANQUISHElD ARMY. - -b--a--· (By "Three Stars," in London "Daily Mail," Oct. .3.) What has happened to the Old Army which fought at ..Mons ? The general public thinks of it as a force now greatly multiphed but still fight ing out battleS, on the line from the Yser to the Somme. As a matter of fact the Old Army, as an Army ,disappeared long ago. They did not disappear, a worn-out, decimat ed remnknlt, utterly exhausted by the retreat and the subsequent thrust of the Marne and Aisne, as those at home seem to think. Instead. they have gradually been swallowed up ,by death and tlihe New Armies. - Because the individuials making up the heroic little band of French's command have slipped out .of the newspapers and the public eye, it does not mean that they are all dead or out of the service. The casualties suffered by the original British. Expeditionary Force were singularly light as one counts casual ties to day. When trench warfare began a large. number of men from Mons wer...

After a retirement of over an hour. the jury returned a verdict of guilty, and strongly recommended accused to mercy, owing to the cul pable negligence of the lodge of. ricers in carrying out their duties. The Chairman said that 'even if the jury had not made the recom mendation,' the bench would have felt bound to consider the fact that the negligence of the officers had put the temptation in the way of the accused.
