ALLEGED GIRL DRUDGE CHILD'S EVIDENCE OF BEATING A little girl of eleven, ivho was said to have been made a household drudge, gave evidence in West London Police Court yesterday (says "The Daily Mail," December 12) against Harry Velten and Ethel I-Iobson, of 15, Wood stock road, Shepherd's Bush, who ivero charged with ill-treating her. Mr H. Pierron, for the National So ciety for the Prevention of Cr;;e!:y to Children, said the'child, Lvdia Maud, was the daughter of the woman defen dant, who had been heard to say thai she "would like to get rid of her." The child would be punished for not doin? the housework quickly enough and then punished again for being late at scliooi through doing the housework. The child, a timid little .sir!, de scribed how she was frequently beaten by the defendants. Her mother used to hit her on the shoulders with a cane three or four times a week. Once her "father" accused her of taking sixpence out of his pocket, and he and her mother beat her. On Xovember...

"THE MASTER'S MASTER" RIGHT TO HIT. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

"THE MASTER'S MASTER" RIGHT TO HIT. Herbert Morter, the village postmast er of Great Cressingham, Norfolk, was charged at Swaffham yesterday with assaulting two boys in the school play ground (says the "Daily Mail" of No vember 27). The boys said that Morter's^boy had stoned them, but they did not retalitate. The defendant went to the'school and hit them several times, saying they had hit his son. The'mother of one of the boys was stated to have asked the de fendant why he hit her boy, and he said. "I am a school manager appointed by the -Norfolk Education Committee. I am the schoolmaster's master. X can go into the playground and hit boys. There is no law to prevent me." . Morter, in defence, said the boys were a nuisance, and had ill-treated his son. The chairman said the Bench felt strongly that the-defendant had abused his position, and had by this case prov ed himself unfit for it. Morter was fined £1/S/, including costs.

PATHOS OF LAST TURN WILL POWER TRIUMPHS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

PATHOS OF LAST TURN WELL, POWER TPaTOIPHS. In the old days at the Pavilion Mr .Murk Melford. the brother of Austen Melford, often appeared in his sketch "Non-Suited." and at his farewell mati nee at the Little Theatre yesterday he once more look the. part of Mr Stur geon, K.C. (says the' "Daily News" No vember 2S). The veteran actor is very ill indeed, and it was only by strength of will that he was able to take his last turn. There was still the same dry humor in Sturgeon's cross-examination, and the same incisive asides. At the end of the afternoon, sur rounded by his friends and those who had taken part in the performance, Mi Mark Melford recited his own poem on the Suffragette's hard path as pioneer. Miss Ethel Tilbury had to prompt him from the book, and it was pathetic to see how the sick man forgot his weak ness in the pleasure of declaiming his poem. Many actors have taken fare well of the stage, but none in such touching circumstances. There could not have been a hundred pe...

This an nouncement I am only now in a posi tion to make.

THEATRE OF FUTURE DOOM OF SPOKEN WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

THEATRE OF FUTURE DOOM OF SPOKEN WORDS. Even those who do not agree witn jyl. Leon Bakst's theories on the develop ment of various forms of art will not deny the freshness and originality which makes the Russian painter one of the most interesting personalities of the Paris of to-day (says the Paris cor respondent of "Tho Daily News," De cember IS). M, Bakst is thoroughly sincere in his convictions. He doesn't play to the gallery, though he may startle it by such dicta as those enunciated to-day in the course of my chat with him in his atelier on the Boulevard Malsher l)es. TRIUMPH OF PAINTING "The theatre of the future means the triumph of painting and the gradual abolition of the spoken word," he be gan. "The spoken word will find another and a more modernist arena. The book, whether tragedy or drama, will be sufficient to itself, without be ing obliged to have recourse to inter pretation, which always leaves some 'thing to be desired.

LABOR AND LARKIN MR HAVELOCK WILSON'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

MR HAVELOCIC WILSON'S VIEW James Larkin, the Dublin strike lead er, has aroused active opposition from some English trade union leaders by his "fiery cross" tour in this country (says "Lloyd's Weekly, November 30). Notable protests have been made by Mr J. Havelock Wilson, president of the Sailors' and Firemen's Union, and Mr J. H- Thomas, M.P., of the National Union of Railwaymen. Mr Trosam, in a speech at Newton Abbot on Sunday, said Larkin's mani festo was as ill-timed as it was unfair, as unfortunate as it was mischievous If railway companies broke agreements the men would be justified in doing everything they could to deal with the situation so created, but, while they in sisted on the companies observing agreements, the men must adhere to the same code of honor. So far as the sympathetic strike was concerned, when once the National Union of Railwaymen gave counten ance to that policy assuredly the end of their society had begun. Mr Havelock Wilson, in his reply to Larkin, gave ...

WOMEN SETTLERS ALLEGED SCARCITY [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

WOMEN SETTLERS ALLEGED SCARCITY Considerable surprise has been created among Australasian and other Colonial officials in London by the statement of Sir H. Rider Haggard, at Sunderland House, that in Eng land there is no surplus of marriage able women; and the surprise may be said to.be of a painful character, by reason of his further' assertion that he was speaking with the authority of the Dominions Royal Commission, which has recently inquired into the subject (says the "Westminster Gazette"). At the offices of the High Com missioner of the Australian Common wealth genuine astonishment was ex pressed. "We take the view," said an 'official who has spent many years in orga nising the efforts of Australians to secure an adequate .supply of female settlers, "that the difficulty is merely an extension of the home trouble. Young women and girls, whom we en courage to go out to Australia as domestic servants, are hard to find be cause they are attracted to other kinds of work. So many a...

SM0KINS IN BUNKS When the Board of Trade inquiry in to the burning of the emigrant ship Volturno was resumed yesterday (says the "Daily Mail" of December 6), a steerage steward who was known in the Volturno as "Samson" — "because I vos so leeole,"-lie explained to the court — narrated in voluble broken English how the "bright, bright flames" rushed out of No. 1 liold. Mr Raeburn (for the Board of Trade): Did 3-ou see passengers falling overboard?—Yes. Where was that?—On the after-declc. A Frenchman took his daughter, I think it was, and threw her into the water. Then he threw his wife and .lumped with her without any warning. He was crazy. He was a cabin pass enger. All the emigrants were properly pro vided with lifebelts, though the wit ness had noticed during the voyage that whenever the people wanted a piece of string they cut the strings off the belts.

Subscriptions are being asked for in order to raise a worthy memorial to place on his tomb. Unfortunately a great difficulty has arisen (says "The Daily Mail").

SMALL EXCHANGES TELEPHONE HUMOR [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

SMALL EXCHANGES TELEPHONE HU1IOE What is the smallest telephone ex change in the world? A member of "The Daily Mail" staff, turning over the pages of the telephone directory came across, the Castlebellingham area, which contains but three subscribers. However, it is a fine, big, fat, lusty name, and evidently impressed the Post Office, for the entry in the directory begins like this: "Oastlebeiiingham area, Including Castlebellingham. Public Call Office: Castlebellingham." A brave effort to give the entry fur ther scenic importance is .made by a lengthy direction as to what one must do in the event of faults and service difficulties, but the melancholy fact re mains that a brewery, some corn mer chants, and Mrs Woolsey-Butler share Castlebellingham exchange between them. Wo rang up Castlebellingham. "Trunks'" operator first wondered if we wanted Balham. We said, "No," and insisted politely on Castlebellingham, explaining that it was, in Ireland, near Dundalk.

NEW SHAW PLAY AUTHOR'S METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

NEW SHAW PLAY AUTHOR'S METHODS. It is a very little one, this new play of Mr Shaw's. It lasts only a trifle more than an hour, and that is more than long enough (says the "Daily, Telegraph"). It never attempts to be anything more important than roaring farce. It never succeeds in being remark ably funny. Not for the first time you will envy the ease with which Mr Shaw is amused by his own wit. He crams together good jokes and bad, inventions really comical and the most tedious banalities. At any moment he may wander off from a happy thought into the dullest trifling. To the fortunate author it is ,doubtless all equally funny, but you long to submit him to a drastic sub editor. The idea for this farce was quite a lucky find. Imagine a respectable Englishman, just the kind of Eng lishman at whom the comic papers have been laughing for years, thrust into the presence of the Empress Catherine, that lady of innumerable lovers. There ought to be plenty of fun in that. Mr Shaw found some, ...

KAISER ON "OUR PROGRESS" [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

KAISER ON "OlIR PROGRESS" The Emperor and Empress to-day visited the Rathaus. and were wel comed with an address (says Rou ter's Munich correspondent on Decem ber 16.) In his reply the Emperor said: "Almighty God willed that it should be vouchsafed to our fathers to sow on the blood-drenched battlefield the seed which has borne.such glorious fruit. The paths for all German races to un hindered development of their ideal and material forces were then made smooth for all the German tribes. In addition to these favorable preliminary conditions, the present generation had enjoyed the blessings of a long and un disturbed peace. "Perhaps there is justification for asking seriously whether this favor of the times is being rightly used, whether the sons are worthy of the fathers, whether our patri mony is being properly developed even under the strong protection of our splendid defence force on land and water."

RECLUSE OF MAYFAIR [Newspaper Article] — Rochester Express — 13 February 1914

RECLUSE OF MAYFAIR In the heart of Mayfair there re cently died a lady of considerable wealth, who for nearly 20 years had lived the life of a recluse, almost un known to her neighbors. She was Mrs Julia Macdonald, and she led a solitary existence, attended by only one servant, at a house in South street, Park lane. In the same street reside Earl Grey, Katherine Duchess of Westminster. Sir Samuel Scott. M.P., and many other prominent people, but Mrs Macdonald seldom left her house, and in her lifetime no callers were ever allowed to enter her own particular room. For some time past she had been at tended by a West End medical practi tioner for bronchitis, and her death, a natural one. occurred suddenly on Fri day (reports the "Daily Express" of December 12). She was buried at TCensal Green on Wednesday, and her house in South street is now being thoroughly overhauled. Apparently, the part reserved for her special use has not been touched for years.
