Methodists and the Federal Area. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 26 February 1915
Methodists and the Federal Area. AT the sessions of the New South Wales Methodist Confereuce yester day, The Goulburn synod recommen ded :- " That the circuit be re named ' Canberra,' with the appointment of two Ministers. " That, until-provision is made at the capital city (Canberra), the super intendent minister shall -reside at Queanbeyan, and the second minister at Canberra. " That should conference decline to grant the request, synod recom mends that Queanbeyan circuit re ceive a grant. " That provided'conference accede to the request, the present ministers be re-appointed." A long discussion ensued. The Rev. D. C. Hughes, who is stationed at Queanbeyan. appeared to under stand that the minister at Queanbeyan should be the superintendent of a circuit which, embraced the Federal capital. On the. other hand, it was held that the Rev. R. J. F. Boyer, who had charge of Canberra, was independent of the Queanbeyan cir cuit, having been set 'apart for the special work of the Federal c...
Reprisals. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 26 February 1915
Reprisals. GBR3IANY has no inteutioti to sub mit quietly to privation. If she can not import food, neither, if she can help it, shall Britain. Britain, by her magnificient navy, is able to stop and examine, in a civilised manner, all suspected vessels. Germany, with her navy bottled up in the Kiel canal, is unable to do anything of this kind. But she has submarines, which can sneak out and sink any ship which come within range of their torpedoes. Therefore, Germany has announced that she will sink, without examination all " enemy," which really means all neutral vessels found in the hostile waters. She counsels them, therefore, to stop away, un less they can make terms to come as a convoy, which shall be recognised and respected by both belligerents. It is not likely that the threat will have the desired effect. The sub. marines available for the barbarous work are so few, and the number of ships-which trade in British waters is so great, that the damage done is not likely to be lar...
Hoist With Their Own Petard. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 26 February 1915
Hoist With Their Own Petard. THs parlous condition of Germany in regard to food stuffs, inevitably recalls the boasts which were so freely made before the war. As a nation so largely dependent on the importation of grain and other simi lar commodities by sea, it was held that Britain could easily be starved into submission. But now that war on an unprecedented scale is actually proceeding, it is Germany, not Bri tain, that is in imminent danger of starvation. There is now no secret about the matter. Admiral Behncke, a German officer, has admitted in so many words that the situation is be coming acute, and, reading between the lines, it is easy to gather the same from the wording of the Ger man despatch to America. Germany complains that whereas America is freely supplying the Allies with pro visions and even munitions of war, the assistance which Germany, by the good offices of other neutral na tions, has been deriving from the same quarter, is being entirely cut off. The difficulty...
Was It Twins? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 26 February 1915
SoarE remarkable cases, involving curil ens physiological facts at intervals be 'set the authorities administering the Maternity Bonus Act. • One of these (wliiohli necessitated advice being'sought from a medical specialist) presented itself recently. A claim was received ;from a woman for the bonus in respect of a child born. It .was properly attes ted, and was paid.- Within a few weeks the woman submitted a claim for another child born to her one month later than the other. There was for this claim also complete documentary :justification. But suoh an occurrence being thonght a physiological impossi rbility, inquiries were set on foot. The officers deputed to make them ive're ae sured by the medical man who attended the mother that two babies had been born, and a month had elapsed between theifirst and second birth. 'A. special. ist was consulted as to the'possibility of such an event, and he stated that he was aware of such cases, but they were few and far between. He explained t...
Is Its Human. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 26 February 1915
Is It Hluman. ITr seems terribly inhuman .to en deavor to cut off food supplies from a whole nation. If it where possible to feed the civilians without strength ening the army, such a course would be readily adopted. That however, is quite impracticable. If the food is there, the military will have first call upon it. But the most merciful course will be to bring the war to an end as soon as possible, and any ac centuation of scarcity of food inust have that 'effect. It is inhuman. But all war is inhuman, In principle, ,there is no difference in preventing the entrance of food into a be leaguered town, and preventing, or hindering, its entrance into a nation. It is very instructive, however, to see Germany struggling agaibst the very disabilities which she-had fondly hoped to inflict ,on her most formid able enemy.

C'entury of Melllodism in Austrhlia. On Sunday night, 21st instant, the sermon preached by the Rev. D. C. Hughes in the Methodist Church, Queanbeyan, bore on the above. The preacher's text was:-"At this time shall- it be said, What hath God wrought?"-Numbers xxiii, 23. He said this was a year of jubilation throughout Australia, New ZeaLand, and the many islands of the Pa cific Ocean for the Methodist Church; - for it was cerebrating, the one" hundredth birthday of its life work. for the Kingdom of God under the Southern Cross. The establish ment and rise and progress of Meth odism in the Southern Hemisphere was reviewed. On the 10th May 1815, the first Methodist minister, the, Rev. Samuel- Leigh, landed in Sydney.
