LABOR, DEFEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
LABOR, DEFEAT. ' Mr. J. Thomas (Lab.), when inter viewed, said that he believed that Labor would assume tho functions of tho official Opposition. There was a tendency to talk industrial action, or strikes to make un for the failure at the ballot-box, but Labor's clear duty was to accept the electorate's ver dict, as it might easily govern tho country at the next election. [Commenting on the British elections Mr. Ryan, Premier of Queensland, said it seemed strange to him that Labor, with 2,237.175 votes io its credit, re turned onlv 00 McmliTs, while tbe Coalition Liberals, with 1.372.170 votes, had 127 members Similarly, tho Asquith Party apparently had only 37 members, although it received 1,300,610 votes. The Coalition Union ists, with 3.ÍR3.008 votes, had 331 members, while the whole of tho non Coalitionists, with 4.330,700 votes, to talled only 236 members. A superficial examination of theso figures seemed to indicate something glaringly inade quate with regard to tba distributi...

A TERRIFIC CRASH. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
A TERRIFIC CRASH. Later.-The Iolairc death-toll ¡s 300; only 40 were saved, many of whom were mangled as they were dashed against jagged rocks of the forbidding coast, which is described in Stevenson's "Kidnapped Passage." The trip commenced in fine weather, but a sudden storm came on. She car -ried 300 sailors on leave, the men being in the highest spirits. No one contem -plated danger. The ship was going at full speed when she failed to take the entrance to Stornoway harbor, and was buffeted by the squal into a reef called "The Beasts of Holm' with a terrific crash, the Iolairc striking bow on. The vessel finally grounded seven yards from a ledge of rock jutting out from the shore. Seas continually swept over the Vessel, and within 10 minutes she listed and reeled broadside on to the reef.

"SOLD COCAINE AT A PROFIT." _ LONDON, Saturday. - When the inquest upon the death of "Billie" Carleton, the famous actress, who was found dead in her fLat in the Strand as the result of a overdose of cocaine, was resumed to-day, hundreds of peo -ple who sought admission to the court were turned away. Belcher, a film actor, gave evidence that he sold cocaine to De Veulle at a profit. Ho had no knowledge that the cocaine was intended for Miss Carleton. The latter told witness that she was taking cocaine because she was worried over Mrs. De Veidle's jealousy, but witness did not believe that Miss Carleton contemplated sui -cide. He had himself taken cocaine. The Public Analyst stated that he found evidence of cocaine in deceased's organs. There was no cocaine in the stomach. Doctor Jewesburg gave evidence that death was due to cocaine poisoning. Drug- takers usually took cocaine like snuff, and might easily take a fatal dose accidental...
WILHELM SHOWS HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
WILHELM SHOWS HIMSELF. Tho "Daily Chronicle's" Amorongen correspondent described the ex Kaiser's first appearance in the open air for 14 days.

NO RENEWAL OF ARMISTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
NO RENEWAL OF ARMISTICE. Diplomatic circles aro incredulous re garding the Amsterdam "Politiken's" statement threatening a rupture with Germany at the preliminary negotia -tions, but it is admitted that the Al -lied Governments aro preparing a de -finite course of action, and unless the German situation develops quickly, the Peace Conference will be confront -ed at its inception by the fact that no Government in Germany exists with which negotiations can be carried on. Two views aro entertained - either that the Peace Conference should ar -rive at its conclusions regardless of the situation in Germany, or that the Ger -mans should be warned that a renewal of the armistice is impossible unless Representative Government is estab -lished.
