TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 2 October 1914
TURF TOPICS. (By "'Flemington.") Interest is now being centred in the two-year-olds, which will have their first outing in public at Flem ington on Saturday. The race in which the youngsters are to be intro duced to tihe public, the Maribyrnong Trial Stakes, is now worth £1,500, so that it must be put down as quite'an impiortant item in the Spring cam paign. In these scrambles with a team of uneducated youngsters in the field, anything might happen. But with a clean jump away, . Pretty Bobby may be expected to make merry travelling over the four and a half furlongs. Ahother of the youngsters that might be heard of in connection with this race is Duverney, a smart little Bobadil colt, who will carry Mr. J. L. Currie's colors. Of J. Scobie's lot the best appears to be a chestnut colt named Two (by The Welkin from Seville). He can go very smartly in private. Nothing more will after all, be seen of Boragoon on the Turf. The Mul tiform colt is anmiss again, and no fur ther effort will be...
WHAT WAR INVOLVES. THE INTERNATIONAL RULES. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 2 October 1914
WHAT WAR INVOLVES. THE INTERNATIONAL RULES. What is war, what does it imply, and what are its effects? "Thie pro suinmed object of war," says one of the greatest puthorities ' on international law, "being to cripple the enemy's oimmerce and to capture his pro perty; a state of war im plies a prohibition of commercial in tercourse and correspondence with the inhabitants of the enemy's country. TJlherefore all suchl intercourse, without the license of tile Crown, is illegal." When a country declares war against another country, all the subjects of the one become enemies to all the subjects of the other. It is intere&St ing to note that a formal declaration of war is not necessary. In the pro sent instance, it wouklt seouem that Ger imany and Franco were involved with out the forniality of a declaration, and the sensational articles published about a year ago, when ollicers ot both the German and the English nay is predicted that if war were ever to exits between tueni, neither...
THE FRENCH FORTRESSES. A STRONG FRONTIER. HEIGHTS CROWNED WITH GUNS [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 2 October 1914
iTl l1I:.ICH FORTRESSES. A STRONG FRONTIER. HEIGHTS CROWNED WITH GUNS An instructive and interesting de scription or toe Franco-German fros tier and .the strongly fortified positions on its Frenen side, was given by Mr. J)Denetrius C. Boulger in the Con temporary Iteview, in an article writ ten some time ago. The strength of these forts compared with those on tihe Belgian frontier, explains the German plrposo in invading France through Belgium. 't'here is no other frontier in the world that in any way resembles that which extends for 34.0 kilometres, or about 212 "English miles, from,. say, the Swiss district of Porrentruy to the ruins of the once famous Abbey of Orval in Belgium, says Mrs. Boul ger. At a short and varying distance from an arbitrary line, drawn without symmeotry and in recgless disregard of even local convenience by an intolerant victor in 1871, France has construct ed with immenso patience and at an enolrmous cost in 30 years a fortified barrier behind which she ho...
OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 2 October 1914
OF RURAL iNTEREST (By "Rusticus.") Among the many gatherings that took -place during Show week, one of the most interesting was the annudal con ference of members of the Co-operative Butter and Cheese Factories' Associa tibn of Victoria. Mr. M. Burke, the president of the Association, in moving the adoption of the reports and balance sheet, said that the council had had many questions to deal with during the year. Some of the most important mat ters dealt with were "Uplifting of the Quality of Victorian Butter," and tho '"Menace of Margarine." Develop ments in connection with the introduc tion of the "Cream Grading Bill" were slow; several important recoinmenda tions were- made, and have been em bodied in the bill, now before the Cab inet for consideration. With the ob ject of uplifting the quality of Victor ian butter, the council approached the Minister of Agriculture with the re quest that lie convene a couference of those interested. The Minister concurred and a conference, cons...
