CORRESP OHOEN, E It as lo be diseinctly undersatood tlhas we s, ,o wayt identtifyourscles with the opisio expressed by our csrrespondenfs. (To the Editor.) Sir,--I notice in the press that the Ministry intend to proceed with tie Hamilton-Coavcendish railway eitension works as soon as the trust is folrned and the required deposit paid, But n hy, I ask, should there .be such a •tipulation made respecting these works, ,hich are really a great national work of vast importance to thousands of pcop'e? And'wby, again I.ask, was there not some such stipulation made ,bout the electrilicntion of tihe subur Ian railway lines of the metropolis, which the Ministry are pushing on ,with all haste, notwithstanding that tihe scheme was strongly opposed by the Railway Commissioners, who were specially appointed to manage the rail ways, aparb.from Government inter forence.

STRANGER THAN FICTION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Observer and Normanby Advertiser — 30 March 1914

STRANGER THAN FICTION. (BY PETEn,) The following report of a secret meet ing of tihe L.C.B. wowser caucus has been left on my taale in the usual way. When received it was the usual mass of wowser circumlocution, vapid plati tudes and vague generaiities. Why steu'd Peter be chosen to hammer this stuft into respectab'e shlape before it goes to press? It is flaltering, to Ibe sure, but he is getting tired of it, and if the revised version is not wholly cor rect it is because the meaning was so often hidden behind so much verbosity that it was,imnpossible to fird it. The proceedings were opened with a hymn, after which the outward correspon. ldecc wos read and approved, and that inward dealb with as follows:-From Tuan ShibhKai, asking to be supplied witlh a copy of the constitution of the L,C.O.W.O. From Mr. Asquith, to same t ffect,-The secretary said that constitutions of both these countries being in courso of reformation, and the matter appearing to be urgent, he hIad already given ...
