Aus tralian maturity goes to the ballot box to decide an issue that has been unfortunately somewhat becloudid by the greater international conflict going on in Europe.

No time to delude our selves that this war and its con sequences are likely^ to soj pass %V»ay. , We must face the stern reality ,; tbat this snuggle is one to the ; death.

The Non-Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
The Non-Advertiser. Breathes there a Man with soul so dead Who never to himself hath said: "My trade of late is getting bad, I'll try another two-inch ad." If such.there be, go mark him well, For him no bank account shall swell, No angel watch the golden stair To welcome him a millionaire; The man who never asks for trade, By local lines or ad. displayed, Cares more for rest than worldly gain And patronage must give him pain. Tread lightly, riends let no rude sound Disturb his solitude profound. Here let him live in calm repose, Unsought by men except he owes, And when hedies, go plant him deep, That naughtmay break his dreamless . sleep,. Where no rude clamor may dispel The quiet that he loved so well, And that the world may. know. its.loss, Place on his grave a wreath of moss;\ And on a stone, above, "Here lies A chump who .wouldn't advertise."

The Case for Labor. THIS FUSION AND DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
The Case for Labor. By W. M. Hughes. THIS FUSION AND DEFENCE. It is but natural that at a lime when action of some sort is impera tively demanded by the people of those who govern them, that the Government should keenly resent the charge of "being tnen who have talked much, but done no thing." I sympathise with them, but can not acquit them of the charge. On the contrary, I think no charge levelled against public men was ever more justified or better sup ported by facts. Their time has been mostly spent wading about in a fog of words in which.they have lost their bearings and from which they have emerged at regular intervals declaring great landmarks erected by their oppon ents, as Will o' the Wisps only to' later hail them as Beacon Lights and claim them as their very own. Time will not permit me to run the whole gamut of their incapacity for action. But the cup of their sins of omission is not only full but dripping over. They have done nothing. In the social, economic and na tion...
Summoned Lord Randolph Churchill. THE INDIGNANT "CABBY." [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
Summoned Lord Randolph Churchill. .-hi THE INDIGNANT "CABBY." Interesting memories : of ..bygppe J j "growlers" and hansoms, and famous, "fares" who patronised them, wero recalled at a recent gathering : of pensioners of the Cabmen's Bene volent Society. One old driver, who first took out his cab fifty-four years ago, reculled how he drove Lord Palmerston from the House to' Piccadilly at three o'clock in.., the morning, "nix' 'd only paid me a shiliin'," he said, indignantly. I got double the fare from Lord Bea consficld when I drove 'i'm.-fr.om the 'Ouse to Park Lane." Another old veteran recalled, gow; ho once summoned Lord Randolph Churchill for n shilling for1- call ing his cab and not taking it. " I 'card 'is lordship say he didn't like the look of my 'oss," remarked "cabby," "which wos funny, seein' it was • a trotter .that once belonged to Jem Mace, while the other man's moke looked as if it 'adn't 'ad' a" sight of 'ay for donkey's years.

FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. — I • 'A public- clock which can be heard but not seen is' one of London's curious possessions. It is in the tower of.

It has no dial, no hands, no outward and visible sign pi any kind. to' show that it is a clock. • This eccentricity; it is explained, is the result pf two" causes, one aesthe tic. the other financial. .When .the'-tqwer was built in 1879 a clock was suggested as an after thought, _J)Ut _ the architect protest "etl that 'it would mean the addi tion of 33ft. to the tower, and the ruin-of 4ta cherished proportions.

The New Language of the Air. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 4 September 1914
The New Language of the Air. A now and very picturesque lan guage is being coined from Eng lish and French wor„ds and odd bits of slang, to describe the various activities of the airmen and the draft in which they navigate the air. A "seaplane," "water-plane," "hy droplnn.'," or "water 'bus,'-' to give it a few of its names,- is a flying machine fitted with floats so that it can rise from and roturn to the water. . To "taxi" means to dash along the surf nee until the speed 'is sufl'i cient to rise. . The "pusher" is a biplane with the jtro'pellor behind the planes. To "stall" a machine is bad amidship, and means that the machine is dri ven skyward at too steep an angle so that it flies tail downwards and The Meanings of some of tho New Air Terms Illus trated— (A) A " Volplane." (B) A " Nose Dive." (C) A " Pancake."- . (D) A " Slide Slip." loses its balance, which may end in a bad sideslip. The " bat " ; boat: is a biplane with a boat shnped body instead of floats.
