Richmond Recruiting Committee Busy.—Novel Suggestions Adopted and New Helpers Wanted. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 March 1917
Richmond Recruiting Committep Busy.-Novel Suggestions Adopted and New Helpers Wanted. Activity is being displayed by the Richmond Recruiting Committee. On the suggestion of Mr. E. J. Cotter, M.L.A., Labor platforms during the forthcoming elections will be avail able for recruiting sergeants. They will be invited to make appeals. A novel suggestion has been adopted in connection with church choirs. They will be requested after certain practice nights to go out into the open, on platforms or in the road way, and continue their singing. When a crowd gathers, the music will be replaced by the insistent ap peal of war as voiced by the return ed men, who know what they are talking about. If the choirs could be prevailed upon to sing ragtime they would probably gather a bigger and more suitable audience. But the thought brings a smile. An appeal has been issued by the central executive through the sub committees for assistance for the lo cal committees. Richmond residents who are prepared ...

TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Personal. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 10 March 1917
TOPICS OF THE WEEK. Personal. Frank Goodman, a Lennox-street boy, now at the Government Printing Office, Fiji, is finding life fairly dull in the land of dusky maidens, big ban anas and milky cocoanuts. He is at Suva. "There is one main street and two picture shows, and if you don't go too much on the movies there are only the three 'R's' left for you. Stay home and read or write. White folk have the dress circle to themselves at the pictures. It costs them 1/6. The i natives sit elsewhere and are charged 6d. There are a good many Indians here-some of them in business. We are in the warm months at present, but in another month we will be put ting an extra blanket on the bed." Mr. William Hillard had enough troubles of his own when somebody who was not aware of such circum stances asked him to interest himself in a case that called for all the help that could and can be given. Mr. Hil lard had just lost his wife and the mother of his two children. Now he was informed that the Grim Re...

LABOR'S BUST-UP. ROWDY MEETING OF RICHMOND LEAGUE. OLD SECRETARY RESIGNS. NEW BRANCH OF LABOR COUNCIL TO BE FORMED. Intrigue, bickerings and quarrels are not confined to the Federal Par liament. The meeting of the Rich mond branch of the :Political Labor Council on Tuesday nigh't was the rowdiest on record. Anathemas were hurled at anyone and everyone, and in the midst of proceedings the sec retary, Mr. G. Vesper, handed a sheet of paper to the presi dent, Cr. H. Bell. It is un derstood to have been his resigna tion. This pioneer of the Labor movement was disgusted! He did not want longer to have his name as sociated with the branch for which he has dolle so much. So were other old Labor leaders. It has aever been the aim of this paper to offend against good taste. We refuse to print ' some of the epithets hurled around the appropriately enough named_ Oddfellows' Hall. Old Labor leaders who have the good of their movement at heart could not long tolerate the position into which they...

Unexpected, But Welcome. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
Unexpected, But ,Welcome. That canniest of all the Scots, Mr. Andrew Carnegie, is credited with a funny story concerning two of his compatriots who, when staying at a third-rate hotel in London, discover ed that the washstand in their bed room was minus soap. After ringing the bell an attend ant appeared and asked their wishes. "Sen' up sape, lad; a wee bit sape, quick!" exclaimed one of the Cale donians. The attendant gazed open-mouthed at the two men, muttering, "They ain't Frenchies, nor Eytalians, nor yet Spanish. What can they want?" The Scot became angry. "MLon," he thundered, "can ye no understand plain Scotch?" The attendant promptly withdrew and returned with a bottle and two glasses. More than sixty thousand people are engaged in the match-making in dustry, not including anxious moth ers and meddlesome .neighbors. Archbishop Ryan, a popular Catho lic dignitary in America was visiting a small parish in a mining district one day for the purpose of administering confirmation,...
UNDER THE UNION JACK [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
UNDER THE UNION JACK Mrs. Mf. Shapcott, 61 Rowena-par., has received a cheery letter from her brother Tom, giving an account of his Christmas in hospital at Birmingham. He writes:-"We woke on Christmas morning later than usual and had a cup of tea and biscuits in bed. At the bottom of my bed hung a stocking, and it was filled with tobacco, a cigar ette case and chocolate, from the hos pital staff. There was also a fair sized box from the Australian Red Cross containing 50 cigarettes, a ,writ ing pad, a large tin of sweets and a few other little things. The Austra lian Red Cross have treated me well, and are a fine body. They should be supported. It was just like being kids again to see all the chaps in bed with their stockings, and the snow outside gave it a very 'Christmassy' appear ance. We finally got up and began our day of festivities with a fine breakfast. The mail arrived and I re ceived two small parcels, one contain ing 50 cigarettes and a few cigars, the other a pair of kh...

Dunlap's Quest. By G. E. Lord. : I. "It -is no use; I cannot pay. I would gladly be free if I could, but everything has been against me. My wife's long illness; the suspension of that rubber company-temporary, I hope; my boy's' college expenses-" "And debts," interposed the other. James Murray winced. He had be lieved that a secret. Even his wife did not know. "The lad has promised amend ment. I have given him another chance," he retorted. ."Good resolutions pave the way to "Stop! I have faith in my boy. He has made a good start." "Meanwhile, I must wait for my money, while you adjust your affairs and carry on as usual?" "How can I make any change now, when my wife is on the high road to recovery? Once let her suspect, and all the good would be undone." "That is beside the question," came callously. "My money I must and will have, or-its equivalent." "Equivalent?" "You ' have a pretty daughter-I may say, a charming daughter." It was like a physical blow. "You surely don't mean- You ...

Billie Burke's Frocks. HER FAVORITE DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
Billie Burke's Frocks. HER FAVORITE DRESS. "One of the most pleasant tasks of my career," writes Marion Grey, film critic of the New York "Stage Maga zine," "was an assignment to interview Billie Burke and the frocks she wore in Gloria's Romance. Next to the charming little star the thousands of women who saw the films were most interested in the wonderful dresses she clothed her dainty self in. Whether the scene was a reception at Rector's, a sleigh ride over snow banked roads, on the sands at Palm Beach, the golf-links, or her own bou doir,. Gloria of the story, whose father is a "millionaire, had to be clad in the latest vogue. "The preliminaries attendant on a visit to the great and famous disposed of, I at last was in the Gloria room of Miss Burke's home on the Hudson. It was filled with mementoes of the months spent in making the pictures. Photographs, bric-a-brac and odd bits of furniture which she had fancied had been presented to her by . Mr. Kleine. There were several huge...

Yarra Borderers' Night Out.--Smoke Social Next Thursday. Attention is again directed to the smoke social to be. given to the men of the Yarra Borderers at the Drill Hall on Thursday next at 8 p.m. Ar rangements are well in hand, and an enioyable evening is promised to all who attend. All officers and non commissioned officers attending the smoke social must wear uniform. A common fault among children is that of self-evcuse. If reproved for idleness, untidiness, or other childish failings, the excuse is often ready. This is a bad habit, which, if not checked, is apt to degenerate into nintrnthfulness . and the lie becomes as easy as the excuse.
WILSON'S JOB. About the Powers and Privileges of an American President. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 17 March 1917
WILSON'S JOB. About the Powers and Privileges of an American President. The President of the United States enjoys far greater- power and exer cises a Wider freedom of action than any constitutional monarch. .By virtue of his office he is com mander-in-chief of the military and naval forces of the country, and in the event of war this gives him im mense and almost unlimited power. At the time of the American Civil War, for instance, President Lincoln was absolute dictator as to the move ments and disposition of the troops, appointed and removed commanders as he chose, and, without waiting for the approval of Congress, declared -the famous blockade of the ports of the Southern States. While Congress alone can declare -war, the President could make such a declaration practically inevitable by ordering certain movements of troops. The President .might also bring about war by taking the serious step of Sdismissing a foreign ambassador, :which he has full power to do. He cannot, however, ...
