SHOCKING CRUELTY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
SHOCKING CRUELTY. Russian, officers maintain that Nicholas and his family are still alive in a northern neutral country. "The great evils I have related," the correspondent says, ''pale before the atrocities and the tortures which are regularly applied in the gaols through- out Russia, in pursuance of Trotsky's terrorising policy. "A nephew of a former Russian Am- bassador, Irish fugitives, and others, giving sickening details of men dismem- bered alive, of officers branded with red-hot irons on the naked shoulders, hung on trees head downwards and flayed alive. "Prisoners were also confined in cel- lars which were slowly flooded. "A party of officers were caught at Volhynia, trying to reach Poland. They were stripped, their teeth were broken with hammers, their tongues were torn out, and their palpitating bodies cast in the snow."
TROTSKY THE RULER. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
TROTSKY THE RULER. &nbsp; Trotsky now dominates more than Lenin. He lives in luxury at the Krem- lin at Moscow, and has a bodyguard of 5000 Chinese troops and 7000 Letts. He journeys everywhere in the former Czar's train with regal magnificence, accompanied by numerous troops, with the engines and the rear carriages mounting artillery and machine-guns. Trotsky is busy organising an army against the expected Allied expedition. He has 200,000 fairly reliable men, commanded by Barsky, formerly a gen- eral of the Russian army, who receives the huge salary of £100 daily. The munitions factories have been &nbsp; rc-started, and Trotsky hopes to have an army of 1,000,000 by the spring. Trotsky, Lenin, and Seirmvieff are &nbsp; perpetually expecting the Allies to attack. They carry false passports for &nbsp; &nbsp; use in the event of disaster. But &nbsp; Trotsky believes that an attack is the best defence, and is therefore invading Poland and...

AWFUL RUSSIA WIPING OUT BOURGEOIS TALES OF TERRIBLE CRUELTY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
AWFUL RUSSIA &nbsp; &nbsp; WIPING OUt BOURGEOIS &nbsp; TALES OF TERRIBLE CRUELTY. &nbsp; Mr. Jeffries, the special correspon- dent of the London "Times,' writing from Petrograd, says that the city is morally and physically ruined. Numer- ous buildings have been boarded up and the streets are almost empty. Most of the residents hold false &nbsp; passports, describing themselves as manual workers, in order to safeguard themselves from arrest. The recent census divided the popu- lation into four classes, viz.: Heavy worker, brain-workers, the lesser bourgeois, and the arch-bourgeois. The last-named is a most dangerous desig- nation.
THE OILY WOMAN JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
THE OILY WOMAN JUDGE'. The arch-bourgeois are steadily de- &nbsp; creasing in number, and their execu- tions methodically continue. The chief victims are army officers and people who are too poor to bribe their way to liberty. A species of Jacobin Court sits daily. The presiding judge is on obese Jewess, who, with oiled locks, lolls on the Bench surrounded by the Soviet crew, and condemns five or six persons to death daily. Everywhere a reign of terror exists. The whole population stays hermetical- ly at home, but accusations by tele- phone are common. Speedy arrests fol- low, and letters are sent to wives con- taining the single sentence, "Consider yourself a widow." Atheism is taught in the schools, and ikons are heavily taxed. Divorce is granted in 10 minutes on the slightest pretext.

THOMAS ATKINS KICKS TROOPS REFUSE TO EMBARK MILD MUTINY AT FOLKESTONE AND DOVER. ALL DIFFICULTIES SETTLED. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
THOMAS ATKINS KICKS TROOPS REFUSE TO EMBARK MILD MUTINY AT FOLKESTONE AND DOVER. ALL DIFFICULTIES SETTLED. LONDON, Monday. - The War Of- fice explanation of the trouble among the troops at Folkestone who were re- turning from leave is that it arose through a misunderstanding of the scheme whereby soldiers on leave from France who secured authenticated con- tracts with pre-war employers are en- titled to extension of leave, with a view to demobilisation. Dissatisfaction arose at Folkestone on Jan. 3 among the men who were about to embark for France. Some claimed that they were entitled to remain if given a chance of &nbsp; fulfilling official requirements. Further trouble arose through the allegation &nbsp; that some men had secured bogus con- tracts. &nbsp; &nbsp; As a result of this dissatisfaction, the soldiers refused to allow their other comrades who were willing to return to France to go aboard the steamer, and they refused to allow others to re-...

WHAT PNEUMONIA DOES AN EXPERT CHEMIST TALKS. It attacks the lungs and discharges its humors into them. It attacks the circulation and weakens the heart. Pain is the messenger all the time. For an inhalant to prevent the germ passing "the gates," there is but one thing. WAWN'S WONDEB-BALM (the Magic Salve) is that thing. Carry it in the pocket-it is put up in a metal tube. Every now and again put a little up the nostrils, and also on the tongue. It is equally good for catarrh. WAWN'S WONDER-WOOL (the Magic Wrap) is never failing. A medicated cotton-wool which has been thoroughly impregnated with specially selected pain relieving essences, restores the circulation, and the pain going proves that the danger has been averted. It stops pain in other ailments-bronchitis, coughs and colds generally; rheumatism, lumbago, etc. But keep it in the house; it is essential. Wawn's Wonder-Balm, price 2/- a tube, and Wawn's Wonder-Wool, price 2/6 a packet, are on sale by all chemists and stores; or...
WYNYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
WYNYARD. Council Employes' Wages. - The roadmen in the employ of the Table Cape Council yesterday petitioned that body to increase their wages from 8/6 to 9/ a day when engaged on Govern- ment work. They pointed out that the Government allowed the council 9/ per day when it carried out work for the department, and this was the rate paid by local contractors for work, similar to theirs. This sum, they contended, was small enough in view of the high cost of living. Cr. Neal moved that the request be granted. Cr. Jones seconded the motion, which was carried. Fire Board.-The quarterly meeting of the Wynyard Fire Board was held on Tuesday evening. Present: Warden Johnston, Crs. Easton, and Garner, and Messrs. R. Gutteridge, and W. Evans. The superintendent (Mr.G. W. Crooks) reported that there had not been any fires during the quarter. Three parades had been held, with an average attendance of 7. He also reported that the new bell was a much better one than the old. On the recommendation...

MRS. ANZAC ARRIVES WAR BRIDES LAND IN MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
MRS. ANZAC ARRIVES WAR BRIDES LAND IN MEL- BOURNE. MELBOURNE. Tuesday.-A con- siderable number of passengers arrived by the steamer Zealandia from Great Britain to-day. Among these were a small contingent of returning soldiers for the Eastern States, and a much larger body of wives and children of Australian soldiers. Of those, the children, mostly young babies, num- bered over 90. Some delay took place in landing those who were for Victoria, South Australia, and Tasmania. Those for New South Wales and Queensland will go on in the Zealandia. Motor cars were waiting, and in these the brides and expectant brides were taken to the hostel of the Young Women's Christian Association. There most of them met their husbands, or the relatives of those husbands who have not yet arrived in Australia. They were all well dressed, and seemed a superior type of young women. Two children were born on the voy- age, while one died a few days before the ship arrived.
SMITHTON. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
SMITHTON. &nbsp; &nbsp; Extra Policeman.--At the request of the residents the Hon. J. Belton, M.H.A., has recently been endeavoring &nbsp; to secure the services of an additional policeman at Smithton. His efforts have been successful, as yesterday he received a letter from the Attorney- &nbsp; General to the effect that arrange- &nbsp; ments were now being made for an ad- ditional policeman to be stationed in this locality.
ATTACKED BY SHARK MAN'S LEG BITTEN OFF. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
ATTACKED BY SHARK MAN'S LEG BITTEN OFF. BBISBANE, Tuesday.--Jack Hoey, aged 38, was shrimping in Ross Crock, Townsville yesterday morning, and before returning home he went in for a swim with his mate. He was appa- rently wading out, and the water was just under his arms, when he was at- tacked by a shark, which took off one of his legs at the thigh. His-mate brought Hoey ashore, and the Ambulance Brigade conveyed him to the General Hospital, where he died this morning.
HOBART'S PROTEST. "GRIEVOUS OFFICIAL BUNGLING." [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 8 January 1919
HOBART'S PROTEST. "GRIEVOUS OFFICIAL BUNG- LING." HOBART, Tuesday.-The Anzacs' Reception Committee, consisting of leading citizens who have been in the forefront of all patriotic movements &nbsp; since the outbreak of the war, have been consistently annoyed during re- cent weeks by repeated errors on the part of the Military Department, Mel- bourne, in notifying the committee of the arrival of Anzacs in Tasmania. Despite requests for more accurate information, in order to prevent incon- venience and loss, particularly to rela- tives of returning men living in the country, the committee have not been placed in any better position, but rather the reverse. Although they were informed some days back that a number of Anzacs were leaving Melbourne yesterday, and were due to arrive in Hobart to night, and although the department must have known when the steamer left that the men were not on board, yet not a word was sent to that effect, and the only intimation the commit- tee got t...
