HOLIDAY SHOOTING FATALITY. PREMATURE DISCHARGE OF   GUN.

WHY HIGH PRICES? To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

WHY HIGH PRICES? To the Editor. Sir ,- While appreciating the tone and apparent intention of "Face ThePosi-   tion's" reply on the subject of high prices, I cannot help expressing regret that he did not read my letter more carefully. Without going into de- tails, I gave as the reason why prices are so high that the majority of peo- ple cannot purchase the necessaries of life, and pay for them. He replies,   not by attempting to prove that I am wrong, but by asserting (which I had already stated) that prices were go- ing up and would continue to do so. Were it not for his opening sentence, which I hope is unworthy of him, I would have been under the impression he was an intentional supporter of my argument. As the matter stands, he is an unintentional ally. Had he read my first carefully, he might have nego- tiated the intricate capitalistic maze, but, like many others, has fallen into the error of imagining that the little retailers of Australia are the "bl...

CATHOLICS AND DRINK FEDERATION'S POLICE. AGAINST IMMEDIATE PROHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

CATHOLICS AND DRINK FEDERATION'S POLICY. AGAINST IMMEDIATE PROHIBI- TION. At the annual conference of the Tas- manian branch of the Catholic Feder- ation, held at Burnie, the following item came from the executive commit- tee for consideration:   That the conference declare itself upon the drink question.   Father Hayes (Burnie) said that the attitude of the Catholic Church upon the drink question was widely known. Drink was not essentially evil. When drink was abused the evil came in ; it was all right when used in moderation. For this reason he had not given many pledges to his people in his time. If the people used drink in moderation they were quite within their rights. Of course, they did not think it right for a poor man to spend his money on drink, when he could put it to better advantage. But as for telling a man, whether a moderate drinker or not, that he must not touch liquor at all - the church would have none of it. Mr. G. E. Kelly (Hobart) said...

RIANA. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

RIANA. Mail Service.- With.the passing of 1918 many changes in our locality are to be seen. One of the most important is a change in tho Riana-Penguin mail contract. For over six years Mr. J. A. Medwin has carried out the daily ser- vice, in addition to branch mails to Cuprona (3 years) and West Pine (6 years). Principally the mails and pas- sengers were conveyed by coach and horses, but a portion of the time the work was done by motors. In addition to the mail contract,-Mr. Medwin did   much of the lighter-carrying work, cream and butter carting for the Emu Bay Butter Factory Company, sup- plied wood for the local factory, and kept livery and bait stables for the convenience of the public, while Mrs. Medwin managed a well-conducted boarding house, and the travelling   public were always well catered for.

THE RURAL PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

THE RURAL PROBLEM. Australian public opinion is waking up to tho fact that there is a rural pro- blem which will call for solution as the days go by. In the immediate past we have been largely enjoying a fictitious prosperity due to the circulation of war money. Australia to date has made n0 real effort to develop manufacturing in- dustries. There are isolated examples which only bring into relief the work that has been left undone. Consequently, if we are to add to tho national wealth, as we must add to it in the coming years in order to meet our war bills, we shall necessarily have to look to .......¡on more than in the past.   ..... rural production is not ..... one State, though Tasman .... aware of how far the rot ...text missing...         Victoria recently to justify a Parlia- mentary inquiry in view of the fact that nearly half the population of the State reside within the metropolitan area.

CHILDREN'S DAY AT WARATAH [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

CHILDREN'S DAY AT WARATAH   Waratah's annual picnic sports for children and ladies were held on the Recreation Ground on New Year's Day, when between 300 and 400 at- tended. A hard-working committee,   namely, Messrs. Jack Davies, A. Lusk, Jas, Scougall, Geo, Clark, E. O'Mal- ley, Sloper Cooper, Bob Illingworth, Jasper Waugh, J. Randell, F. W. Macaulay, Bunt Davies, John Webber, W. Weaver, James Davies, and M. J. Kelly, with the joint secretaries, Messrs. Tasty Illingworth and Wat. Penney, kept the fun at high pressure. Every child received lollies, and most of them some kind of prize or toy. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the outing, but many regretted the absence of Mr. A. W. ("Ike") Illing- worth, (who was largely instrumental in initiating these New Year's Day sports some years ago. However, his successors very ably followed the ex- ample set by him, with the object of giving, the children at least one good outing each year. The committee are very ...

GIRL SHOOTS FATTIER ACQUITTED BY CORONER'S JURY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

GIRL SHOOTS FATHER ACQUITTED BY CORONER"S JURY. ADELAIDE.- At Nurioopna an in- quest was conducted regarding the death of Isaac Cully, aged 53, who had been shot dead on the previous day at his home by his daughter, Ma- rion, aged 20. Theo evidence showed that Cully, who was subject to vio- lent fits of rage, was asked by his wife for some money to go shopping. Gully refused, and struck her. He then burst into a fit of anger, and, seizing four cartridges, made an attempt to reach a double-barrelled gun, threaten- ing, at the same time, to shoot the   family. Marion Gully, who was in her room dressing, heard the disturbance, and emerged with a five-chambered revol- ver, with which she shot her father. The bullet entered below the heart, and he died three hours later. She was arrested on a charge of murder, which was later altered to one of manslaughter, The verdict returned by a jury of six was that the shot had been fired in defence of the family, and that no blame was ...

ITS PALATABILITY   Allows of "Dr. Maund's Old Time   Wine" being readily taken by child- ren and delicate, sensitive patients. Puny children who don't grow as they   should need more flesh and better bone. "Old Time Wine" sharpens the appetite, makes them take enough food, helps them to digest it, thus stimulating nutrition. If you are weak and worn out, become easily tired, are pale and thin blooded, you   are evidently not getting enough benefit from your food. "Old Time   Wine" helps you to get all the bene- fit possible, because not only does it contain good food itself, it tones up and strengthens the digestive or- | gans, not only causing more food to be taken, but more nourishment to be   obtained from the food. The iron it contains is a direct tonic to the blood,   and people in poor health always need good blood and plenty of it. To all who are "run down," "off color,"   ...

THE SENATE VACANCY MR. MULCAHY A POPULAR TIP. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

THE SENATE VACANCY MR. MULCAHY A POPULAR TIP. HOBART, Thursday. The members of both Houses of Parliament are to meet together on Wednesday week to elect a successor to ex-Senator Long. A proclamation issued by His Excellency the Governor (Sir Fráncis Newdegate), under section 10 of the Constitution Act, 1884, declares that both Houses of Parliament will meet on Wednes- day, Jan. 15, at 3 p.m. The Act provides that members of both Houses sitting and voting together shall choose a per- son to hold the seat in the Senate ren- dered vacant by the resignation, and it is probable that at some earlier hour an informal meeting of members of both Houses will be held in order that if the selected person be a member of either the Legislative Council or House of Assembly he can tender his resigna- tion, which becomes effective on it reaching His Excellency. Any mem-   ber of either House wishing to contest a Senate election must first resign, but it is doubtful if such a course is ...
