PREMIERS IN CONFERENCE. THE LIONS IN THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 April 1914

PREMIERS 191 CONFERENCE. THE LIONS IN THE WAY. To the many the outcome of a Pre- I miers' Conference is always apt to be disappointing. Before the floodgates of talk are loosed, the papers refer lighl-heartedly to " questions on which all thoughtful citizens are agreed." For j example, nobody who counts denies that Australia's vacant spaces should be filled with the right stamp of-settler, that the lowest rate of interest obtain ableshould be paid on the ^275,000,000 which the Siates owe, thai a uniform railway gauge would make for national safety and efficiency. But when detail is reached difficulties of three kinds arise : first, the financial ; second, the party ; third, those due to the State dread of Commonwealth aggression. Unfortunately, it is difficult to surmise how the party-spirit is to be laid even for a day. Labor forced a hide-bound system on the Commonwealth. Under that system -if the Cook ministry does any good thing its members will go to the electors claiming credi...

CHAPTER XVII. THE BATTLE OF THE TITANS. The excitement on the cruiser was now intense. Men clamoured and cursed, and Captain Gore, looking from the bridge through his glasses, uttered a frightful oath. Then, all at once, the tumult faded and there vras a brief moment of awed silence. For the mystery had bern revealed. The , banks of mist, rolling wider apart, disclosed a great white steamer a quarter of a mile beyond the yacht, and but a short distance astern of her. The strange ship bristled .wlt.li a wealth of armament, and men were crowded on hor deck. And by more than oho sign she was promptly t'c cogn'ised as au American raan-wf-war? The discovery, of course, was mu tual. The yacht bore on rapidly, and left an open stretch of sea, half a mile wide, between the two big crui sers. They were now ...

CHAPTER XVIII. THE RETREAT FROM THE YACHT. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 10 April 1914

CHAPTER XVIII. THE RETREAT FROM THE YACHT. The devastating effect of the "pir ate's two shots was. correctly gauged by Captain Gore on the instant that he 'saw them strike, and knowing that the man-of-war's progress was checked, he :icto;l with his usual promptness and decision. Hastening to the bridge, ho rang his bell hard, and shouted a couple of orders. The steam was shut off, and the ridges of foam fell away from the bow, the King of Troj lay gracefully and at ease on the swell. lly this time the man-of-war was iaying-to, and it was apparent to all that she was out of action and badly crippled. The tumult that then burst from end to end of the cruiser's dock was dre.ulful. Frantic with savage exultation, the. horde, of pirate ruflians screeched and clam oured until they were hoarse. From the bridge, with a fiendish smile on his face, Captain Core looked down upon his motlej crew. And to Dick, as lie listened to the din and gazed out over the water, the moment was a black and bi...

Dr. Read was summoned, and under his treat ment Mrs. Miller is doing well. A discovery, which may prove of value and importance to the Borung shire, has been mad on the farm of Mr. W. Hewitt, of Bangerar.g, in the shape of a hugh deposit of stone. While sinking a dam the deposit, which is a kind oflimes'one formation, but of □ wry hard nature, was met with, and appears from tests made to be in an unlimited quantity. Owing to its ex treme hardness the stone is being biasted out, and at each charge im mense blocks are dislodged, in some cases weighing many tons, and which Mr. Hewitt states, five horses were un able to move. These huge masses could be cut into pitchers, or used for road formation, and as there is a great quantity, it should be worth considera tion by the council. Seeing that all th...

First of all my-anonymous lriend " Hop Tick," I presume, is not a Chinese, as ths name would suggest, and I would therefore very much like to make his acquaintance and enlighten him as to a few of the difficu'.ties we very often meet with in the film business.
