The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 31 January 1914
The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE M1. DIHIIL, Authoress of "Tho Knave of Hearts," OIHAPTER III. England-in all thlo glorious greenery of a sunny May. Tho Grange, as the late General TIalldaro's old-fashioned country house in a homo county was called, was ablaze with early roses which climbed over the wide lattices of the lower storey of the south frontage, to festoon themselves about the white curtained dormer windows of the low coiled bod-chambers. An atmosphere of peace lingered about the squ ar lawns and straight, gravelled walks with their pergolas of thick-foliaged croopers, beyond which was an old, low wall, where a peacock perched and spread his tail in the sun shine, a peahen meekly ambling on the grass at his feet. But within the house, in the old-world boudoir, the room sac red to its mistress, the late General's only dhughter, there was no sign of the restfulness without. A bonatiful woman--dark, statoly- was pacing the floor, watch in hand, with wide shoulders, yet a. sl...

THE PREMIERS' CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 31 January 1914
THE PREMIERS' CONFERENCE, CONSIDERABLE interest will be taken in the approaching Premiers' Confer- ence, if only for the reason that it is two years since the chief Ministers of the State met in consultation. During that period quite a number of matters that require discussion have accumu- lated, The more urgent questions that have cropped up have been dealt with by correspondence or by interviews between two or more of the Premiers, but there are always a number of vital issues that cannot be treated in this way. Another factor that makes it desirable that a meeting sbould be held early this year is the circumstance that a Liberal Government is now in power in the Commonwealth. For three years the Federation was under the &nbsp; domination of the Labor caucus. During that time there was a display of antagonism to the States. These were ignored in every possible way, in accordance with the declared policy of the Labor party in favor of a scheme of unification in place of the...
