CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
CONCERNING A LOAN MONEY-LENDERS' CHARGE At the- instance of a money-lender, Mr Daniel Win. Cartan-Lce, barris ter-at-law, of Paper Buildings, Temple, was summoned at Bow street yesterday (reports "The Daily Mall," December 19) for obtaining crodlt for more than £20 without disclosing tho fact that he was an undischarged ban krupt. It was alleged that in negotiating a loan of £400 (for which a bill for £500 payable In six months was given) the defendant told the money-lender, a Mr Swyers, that he had not boen bankrupt. The bill had not boen met. Mr Swyers, In cross-examination by Mr Huntley Jenkins, admitted that a statement in a circular he issued that he was "a retired business gentle man" was not true. Some of tho testimonials in the circular were ficti tious. He had not said to a Mr Bal lantyne that all he wanted was to revenge himself on an Englishman as he had a brother-in-law who had been deported. "Truth" had de scribed him as "One of those harpies who bleed would-be borrower...
DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS \ I A verdict of "Manslaughter" was re turned yesterday by the Coroner's Jury at the inquest on tho two victims of the motor-lorry accident in tho Old Kent road last week (reports "The Dally News," December 9). Tho jury expressed the opinion that the driver of the lorry, a man nameil Georgo Clevett, "drovo at a rapid speed whilst under the influenco of drink." Several witnesses described the pace of tho lorry (a brewery vehicle) as ex cessive or reckless, but one witness, an L.C.C. tram conductor, did not con sider that tho driver was to blame, while others declared that ho did his best to avoid an accident. Interesting evidence waa given in support of tho allegation that Clevett was under the influence of drink. A constable who arrested him after the accident declared that tho man was drunk-that he was very unsteady, smelt strongly of drink, and was very thick in his speech. Another pollco wit ness added that Clevett looked dazed. Ho did not attribute his co...
ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASES PLEASE [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
ARMY HORSES FOREIGN PURCHASES PLEASE Correspondence between Colonel See ly, the Secretary Cor War, ami Lord Kslier. chairman of the County of Lon don Territorial Force Association, on the supply of horses for the Army was made public by the War Odtce (says "The Daily Mail"). ' Lord Esher maintains that "On a general mobilisation every available horse that could be purchased volun tarily would be required for tne Army. None would remain for the use of the Territorials." Tills Colonel Seely de scribes as a "complete delusion." Colonel Seely denies that the increaso in motor vehicles lias led to such a decrease in horses as to jeopardise the succew of a mobilisation. Arrange ment!; have been made for an annual military census of the "horso popula tion." This enables the War Ofiice each year to watch tho variations. "To meet the total requirements of ail the military forces on a gcnoral mobilisation," Colonel Seely says, "some 140,000 horses of all kinds are required: in Great Britain a...

PURE ENGLISH CHANGES IN THE LANGUAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
PURE ENGLISH CHANGES IN THE LANGUAGE. I Dr. E. A. Abbott, best Known to schoolboys as the author of the famous Latin grammar "Via Latina,' and as .^part-author of "English Lessons for English People," has given his adher ence to the Oxford movement for the encouragement of pure English, and (says "The Daily Mail") has discussed tho possibilities of the new society which has been formed with Dr. Bridges, the Poet Laureate, at its head. "If all the schoolmasters and mis tresses at elementary and public schools." said Dr. Abbott, who was a senior classic at Cambridge and a scholar and headmaster of the City of London School, "applied themselves to correcting certain obvious defects, I am sure a great improvement would re sult. What wo particularly want to guard against is affectation which might result from tho teaching: in any pedantic way of tho use of particular words, phrases, or pronunciations. But without pedantry we can try to get rid of many agread faults. "I havo not been out ...
Carpendeit. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
Carpendeit. Mr. J. Anson, of Hembray, Park has been seriously ill since the early part of February. Mr. Anson was taken unwell while visiting members at Alvie, and was at once conveyed to the residence of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Vagg, Colac, where he was attended to by the family &nbsp; physician. The excessively hot weather of the last fortnight has militated against Mr. Anson's recovery, but the latest news is somewhat reassuring. Mr. Anson is widely known and held in high esteem, and his numerous friends hope that an early improvement in his &nbsp; health shall manifest itself. Matters in connection with the local Racing Club's fixture of February 28 are engaging the attention of the ofiicials. A very successful meeting is anticipated. Dense volumes of smoke are frequently &nbsp; seen along the fringe of the forest. Some of the settlers evidently intend to get rid of scrub, &c., whilst the conditions are favorable to a " bur...
A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. By the publication of what has been happily described in the preface as "the birth certificates of a nation," the library com- mittee of the Commonwealth Parlia- ment has inaugurated the collected publication of the Historical Records of Australia. These "birth certifi- cates" consist of a series of litho- graphs of original documents connect- ed with the foundation of settlement and the establishment of Government and civilisation in Australia. First we have the oaths of office taken by Cap- tain Phillip with all the quaint archaic phraseology of the period. To readers of the twentieth century the sug- gestions of the dynastic and sectarian struggles through which the nation had recently passed, and which were still agitating men's minds, must seem strange as they are disclosed in the &nbsp; curious special oaths of abjuration and abjurance Governor Phillip and his officers had to take. Replicas of official documents connected with the establishment...
LIVING=IN ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. [Newspaper Article] — Cobden Times and Heytesbury Advertiser — 21 February 1914
LIVING-IN ABUSES MEAT ON THEIR PLATES. Hotel, club and restaurant workers crowded the Kingsway Theatre yes- terday to demand the abolition of the living-in system and the application of the Shops Act (reports "The Dally News" on December 15). Mr. P. C. Hoffmann, general organ- iser of the Shop Assistants' Union, said that in one of the most fashion- able houses in the West End the as- sistants had to sleep in the shop. In a large town in the North of England a well-known firm of drap- ers had been heavily fined for having on its premises carcases of diseased mutton for the consumption of the staff. "You will hardly credit it," he continued, "but that very firm had a list of rules, one of which read: 'Any member of the staff leaving meat on his or her plate will be fined six- pence.' "
