COURT OF ARCHES [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 April 1914

COURT OF . ARCHES At a dinner of the Authors' Club on -Monday (says "The Times" of Janu ary 1C) Sir Lewis Dibdin, K.C., Dean of the Arches, gave an extraordin arily interesting account of the ad ventures of the lost or forgotten re cords of the Court of Arches. These records, which were kept in various places after the Fire of London, were removed in 18G5 from St. Paul's Cathedral to Lambeth Palace, where they lay buried for nearly 40 years "in a deep stratum of London soot and dust!" and the nature and value of their contents have only just been discovered. On becoming Dean of the Arches in 1901! Sir Lewis Dibdin did what ho could to explore the room in which the documents were kept; but it was not until the summer of last year, when he was helped by the Rev. Claude Jenkins, librarian of Lambeth, that he was able to go through them. They cover a period of 200 years, from 16C0 to 1S5G, and provide a set of precedents', about 2000 in number, de cided in the principal ecclesiastical C...

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 4 April 1914

STRAIN ON THE NAVY POSITION DISCUSSED. (By Itear-Admiral A. T. Malian, in j "Tho Daily Mail.") TIio naval position of Great Britain is a composite oC two distinct factors. These are the general international situation, in so far as CSrent Britain may be therein involved by her inter ests or. her dangers, and the amount of naval force disposable to secure those interests and to meet those dan gers. These two things represent the defensive and offensive elements of a military situation. At the present moment the mere security of the British Islands is con ceived to be so far imperilled that it has prompted a radical change in the distribution of the British Navy, the leading feature of which is the con centration around tho islands them selves of a very large majority of the battleship force. Subordinate to this, but directly related to it, lias been the withdrawal—the drawing back—of the Mediterranean Fleet from Malta to Gibraltar as its definite headquarters. Students of military hi...

Silt AKTHLi: SL1,LIVAN\S OKDJSAIi The death of Mr Francois Celiier, the Savoy conductor (says "The Westmin ster Gazette") recalls a dramatic epi sode associated with the liroduction of "lolantho" in 1SS2. That opera was tho first of the Gilbert and Sullivan series produced at the Savoy, and Sir Arthur Sullivan had arranged with Mr Collier personally to conduct the tirst perform ance. On the morning' of the day fixed for the production Sir Arthur was a comparatively rich man, so successful had been the four operas which had preceded "lolantho"; but just as he was about to leave home for the Savoy news readied him of the bankruptcy of tho lirm entrusted with his investments, and with that bankruptcy the whole or his savings disappeared. But In spite of this heavy blow he went to the theatre and conducted "Iolanthe" be fore a crowded audience, which littio knew that the famous composer was then as poor as the lowliest scen* shlfter behind the scenes. ■ T
