SPORTS AND PASTIMES LATE JTEMS. CRICKET. SOUTH MELBOURNE v. CANTERBURY. (Per Press Association.) CHRISTCHURCH, January 18. The.strong position hold by Canterbury at the end of the first day's play was still further improved on Saturday by Reese moro than doubling his tally of Friday, and useful contributions by Carlton, Sandman and Bennett. Considering that three of Canterbury's/best batsmen—Lusk, Bickmott and Patrick —were not playing, the total of 38-J must bo very gratifying to those who' claim that Canterbury / cricket is stronger than it has ever been.

Scientific men are agreed that excess of Uric Acid is the -Aief cause or Rheumatism, Lumbago and Sciatica. RHEUMO drives the Uric Acid from the system, and rarely_fails; to effect a complete cure.

THE WORLD TO-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 20 January 1913
THE WORLD TO-DAY. &quot;Guardian&quot; Office, January 20, 1913 There is so far no response to the repeated appeals we have made for the formation of a Progress League in Ashburtbh to push forward beautifying projects and to keep the Borough Council alive to its duty to pursue a progressive policy of improvement. Our appeal h.as hitherto been to &quot;leading men&quot;—people of influence, possessing knowledge of affairs and capacity to guide their fellows. If there are any such in our .midst they seem to be as insensible as the deaf adder, that hears not tho voice of the charmer,' charm be ever so wisely. So be it. We are disappointed, but not discouraged. There still remains the common people, who may hear gladly what others re-! fuse to hear. The &quot;Guardian&quot;' is not a labour paper, &quot;in the sense of being an advocate of the &quot;rights&quot; of any par ticular section but it -recognises,that in ...

Timaru has an immense foreshore and a Px-ess Association agent who keeps us informed of everything that transpires from the .barking .of the canine in the street to the meeting of bucolics to discuss the price of tallow-fat.

HOME RULE FINANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 20 January 1913
HOME RULE FINANCE. TKe finance of-.tho Home Rule Bill' is the part we least like. It lias the look of venality— something of the John Bull spirit of commercialism on the one hand and, of Irish mendicancy on the ofche/r. It will bea transaction as open to jeering as was England's buying.of a King from Scotland a few centuries ; ago/ Why should Great Britain, in addition to granting the Irish claim for self-government, throw in some 3,000--000 a year in addition '?• A Liberal M.P., Mr Agar Roberts, raised a protest-, in the House of Commons against the proposal of the Home Exile Bill that 42 Irish members shall sit and vote at Westminster,-helping to make and unmake Ministries. . &quot;Considering that we pay the Irish deficit, two and a-half millions or more annually, it would be more in accordance with the fitness of things if we sent 42 members s over to Ireland to look after our money iind see that it was properly spent.&quot; Mr ..Roberts -then proceeded to give t...
THE ULSTER PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 20 January 1913
THE ULSTER PROBLEM. &quot;Ulster will fight,&quot; it seems; but so far the political Protestants have only succeeded in shooting one of their own number and mauling a police officer. The Nationalists of Belfast wisely refrained from trailing the tails of their coats on the occasion of the passage of the Home Rule Bill through the House of Commons, and' the fighting Ulstermen, had nothing else to fight. When Ulster fights in earnest—that is, when Home Rule is established, and the date is of &quot;Kathleen Mavourneen&quot; uncertainty, as it may not be.for years and it may be never—-the Protestant boys could, of course, sweep Belfast clean of ; Nationalists if they were allowed. The proportion of Catholics in Ulster is only 44 per cent., but this figure is much larger than that for any other denomination, the Presbyterians coming next with 27 per cent., and the Protestant Episcopals with 23 per cent. But the significant point is that 89 per cent of the...
