Although according.to the official ver sion he in stated to have committed sulctde, there seems to be little reason to doubt that he succumbed to police methods used to extort Information -as to the doings of Prince Saba Eddin and other opponents of the present regime, whoso emissary he is supposed to have been. The question is much aggravated from an international standpoint by this development, and the Russian Em bassy will be compelled to insist on the fiullest satlrfactlon being given to it.

" Liberty ndlll( Progress." The issue of this periodical to hand deals in detail with most of the political-and industrial hap penings df importance during the pist month, and includes some pointed comments on the manner in which some of Mr -Justice Higgins' awards actually injure and cause loss to many of the workers His Honor intended them to benefit.

"Woman." [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 5 February 1914
" Womani." The current issue of "Woman," the officialorgan of the Australian Women's National League, has a well-deserved tribute to the self sacrifice of the rank and file of the Liberal party in the Federal Parliament, and to the splendid self-denial, and constant attention to arduous duty on the part of these, that enabled their leaders, the Prime Minister and his col leagues, to achieve so much as they did to the close of last session, in the face of almost in surmountable difficulty. It will surely not be forgotten by Liberal electors, that all of these, including our own mess ber, Mr A. S. Rodgers, rigidly curbed every natural desire. to share actively in the work of the session, and in the interests of the party, because that was in the interests of Australia, con fined themselves to the only effective way under the circum stances, to loyal support from start to finish of the well-planned policy of the Ministry, and thus enabled it to triumph over its op ponents by creating a...
