INTRIGUE AND FORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
INTRIGUE AND FORCE. It is for that reason that it seems to me that you will forgive me if I lay some of the elements of the new situ -tion before you for a moment. The dis -tinguishing fact of this war is that great empires have gone to pieces, and the characteristics of these empires were that they held different peoples reluctantly together under the coercion of force and tho guidance of intrigue. The great difficulty among such States as those of the Balkans has been that they were always accessible to secret influence, that they were always being penetrated by intrigue of some sort and another, and that north of them lay disturbed populations which were herd -ed together, not by sympathy and friendship, but by the coercive force of a military power. Now the intrigue is checked and the bands are broken, and what are we going to provide. A new cement to hold these people together? They have not been accustomed to be ing independent, and they must now be independent. I am sure that...
"MISSING" SEARCH FOR LOST SOLDIERS. ENEMY GOVERNMENTS MUST ACCOUNT FOR EVERY PRISONER. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
SEARCH FOR LOST SOLDIERS. ENEMY GOVERNMENTS MUST ACCOÜNT FOR EVERY PRISONER. LONDON, Friday.^In view of fre &nbsp; -quent inquiries by friends of missing men, it is officially stated that a man is posted "missing" only after the failure of all possible inquiries by regi -mental and hospital officers. Returned war prisoners are systematically exam -ined regarding the fate of their com rades, but no reliable evidence shows the existence of secret enemy prison camps. Inquiries have been made at the hospitals, and all battlefields are being systematically searched. British representatives have been instructed to investigate working camps, mines, asylums, etc, where prisoners might be found. Enemy Governments will'be required to account for every British war pri -soner. No case of a prisoner's identity be -ing untraceable owing to loss of mem -ory has yet been found, but the pos -sibility will be kept in view. It is inevitable that the fate of a consider able number of men will n...

THE NEW ZEALAND OUTBREAK. HOW DID IT OCCUR? ALLEGATIONS OF LAXITY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
THE NEW ZEALAND OUTBREAK. HOW DID IT OCCUR! &nbsp; ALLEGATIONS OF LAXITY. Tho arrival of the Niagara at Syd -ney is of especial interest in view of a bitter controversy which has been raging in New Zealand as to the ori -gin of the epidemic. It is generally held in New Zea -land although disputed by the health officials, that the steamer Niagara brought the disease to the Dominum from America, and that, owing to in -fluential personages being on-board, tho quarantine restrictions were re- laxed, with the disastrous consequences that have ensued. The Niagara reach- ed Auckland on 12th October, with 'Spanish influenza" on' boards. Seven passengers and 123 members of the crew are said to have contracted the disease on the run across the Pacific, and there were between 30 and 40 cases under treatment when the ves- sel arrived. Of these,- 26 members of the crew and 2 passengers were isolated at the shore hospital. The ship's boat -swain died at sea on the night of 11th October. T...

TIMBER TRAFFIC DAMAGE TO ROADS. PENGUIN COUNCIL TO TAX CARTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
TIMBER TRAFFIC DAMAGE TO ROADS. &nbsp; PENGUIN COUNCIL TO TAX CARTERS. &nbsp; &nbsp; At Saturday's meeting of the Pen -guin Council, a letter was received from Messrs. W. A. Pilbeam and Co., Burnie, respecting the proposal made at the previous meeting to levy a tax on timber carting. The letter read: "Without in any way wanting to get out of any just liability for the traffic we put over your roads, we would like to point out that the timber trade is now at a very vital stage. All main land merchants have stopped buying with the idea that thc importations of foreign timbers will reduce the demand for local productions, and if this hap -pens at least 50 per cent of the Tas -manian mills will have to close down. If you will consider how the timber trade is saddled with extra costs since the war, it stands to reason that no industry can carry such costs very long. For instance horse feed is at a very high price. Oils, gear, saws, etc., have gone up 50 per cent.,...
ULVERSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
. ULVERSTONE. Duties of Warden. &nbsp; Cr. A S Lakin received on Saturday sudden and un -mistakable evidence of the importance which is attached to the presence of the Warden of Leven at any function. At 4.50 a.m. he was calmly reposing, after a long day's labor whenai pre- emptory ring awoke the household, and brought the Warden to see who was abroad at such an early hour. It was the town official who is entrusted with the safety of the city after all well-disposed citizens have sought their homes, who informed him there were several returned soldiers coming along bythe early train, and suggested the &nbsp; Warden inform as many as possible of &nbsp; &nbsp; the councillors so that they might reach &nbsp; tho station in time to greet them. The &nbsp; Warden is a man who does not shirk &nbsp; any responsibility, and he was present &nbsp; when the train arrived at 7 a.m., and expressed regret at his inability to collect a...
