THE NEXT ALLY. CHINA AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915

THE NEXT ALLY. CHINA AND THE WAK. It was stated recently, according to the "Berliner Tageblatt," that Gtiina would be Germany's next ally. It was also said that, doubtless, German se cret agents are representing the Ger man Emperor as a great believer in the precepts of Confucius. Mr. William Vinson Lee, managing director of Onyik and Lee, Ltd., mer chants, of Sydney and Hong Kong, made the following comments on these statements to -a Sydney '' Daily Tele graph"-' reporter: "The reference to the German Em peror's great belief in the precepts of Confucius is quite the biggest of the many jokes that the German Emperor has perpetrated. Peace is one of the chief teachings of Confucius. The Chinese recognise that there is no glory in a war that slays one's fellownien for the sake of slaughter. Germany's bar barous methods are quite inconsistent with Christian ideals and also with those of Confucius. "How," said Mr. Lee, "can the Kai ser reconcile his deeds with his an nounced beliefs.'

Correspondence. [We are not responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents under this heading. —Ed.] LOCH-WONTHAGGI ROAD. (TO THE EDITOR "POWLETT EXPRESS.") [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 5 March 1915

Correspondence. [We are not re3ppnsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents under thio heading. -Ed.] LOJII-WONTHAGGI ROAD. (TO THE EDITOR "POWLETT EXPRESS.") Sir,-Whoever is responsible for the maintenance of the 1st section of V/onthaggi-Loch road near Wonthaggi, should be pa33ed out. When the road was first made a fine surface .was made with matal from Wonthaggi quarries. When the road showed wear, or a little subsidence here and there, two inch blue stone metal was sprinkled about; perhaps the object was to divert traffic; if so it has succeeded to a certain extent. After laming two of my horses I now cut across the plains, and note a good many others are doing the same. Hoping a little publicity will bring about a speedy remedy. We want the road for winter.

The buses have become established in competition I with the trains and cable trams. The electric trains are the only system of j locomotion that can withstand them, 'it is* not. that they are comfortable. Much the reverse is the case. For the | sound shake-tip that is said to be good for the liver-though it is probable that that, like many similar generally | accepted beliefs is quite wrong-a trip a<ong St. Kilda road on a bus is about I'as effective as anything»could be.

WHEN.WAR IS DONE. In Europe, when the war is done . may that day soon be greeted!-when some their victory have won, and some have been defeated, 'twill be a country ot'' the old, the halt, the maimed, the dying; in unmarked couches, 'neath the mold, the,young men will be lying. Afar the youthful hosts are flung, like grain that waits the reaping; for war takes harvest of the young, and leaves the old ,men weeping. In Europe when the war is done, the rust dims sword and sabre, in barren fields from sun to sun, old men and dames will labor. The patriarch must guide the plough in fields yet Ted from slaughter, whilst hitched like horses are the frau, the grandma and the daughter. Some veteran on wooden legs, whose strength is swiftly dwindling, may milk the cow and fetcli the egs, and split the daily kindling. But everywhere the weak and old must do the heavy toiling, must strive the little farms to hold, and keep the pot a-boiling. Old men and dames, the harvest waves! Go forth and do...
