Foreign Affairs WARFARE IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

1 _ i WARFARE IN MEXICO. Advices from Mexico state that 3000 Federals were cornered at Ojinaga after a fierce battle. Many attempted to cross the American frontier. The wounded were picked up as they reach ed the shore of the river. Three hundred unwounded men, carrying their arms, waded across the river, but the Ameri can troops disarmed them and forced them to return to Mexico. Their pro tests were pitiful. They declared that without arms they .were certain to be killed. When the rebels withdrew, the battlefield was "covered with dead and disabled men, mingled in heaps. Colonel Ige, military attache at Washington, ~ who has returned from Mexico, is reported to have stated that intervention is inevitable. This, he states, would necessitate the eventual use of 250,000 American soldiers, though 60,000 could take the capital-, Mexico City, in six weeks. General Huerta, he is reported to have added, could not suppress the rebellion unless he adopt ed a railway blockhouse system similar...

CHINA IN PERIL [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

CHINA IN PERIL ( (jnina ended the year owing £72,000,000. The country has been economically weakened, by the revo lution, with a permanent interest bur den, against which there is a small increase in foreign trade. There has been, however, a decrease in inter provincial business. President Yuan-Shi-Kai, in .address ing the consultative body of 71 mem bers whom he chose to supplant the Republican Government, said:— "During the^two years of the exist ence of the Republic the laws have been dragged in the dust, while mor ality, self-restraiht, and righteousness have been swept into oblivion. Men talk glibly of patriotism, but if we en trust the'Government to a man .sim ply on the score of patriotic zeal, with out inquiring into his. capacity-, the almost inevitable consequence will be national ruin. It is hopeless to an ticipate success in any enterprise un less men and money are available for your needs. "For this reason I regard the present situation with profound pessimism. Only a v...

CABLE BUDGET Imperial Affairs LAST STAND OF THE BAGGARA [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Imperial Affairs LAST STAND OF THE BAGGARA Earl Percy, who is a captain in tne Grenadier Guards, in describing the work of the Egyptian Army Camel Corps in South Kordofan, states that the Baggara and remnants of the fierce warriors who formed the^ main fighting strength of the Dervishes, retreated to a mountain fastness honeycombed with caves, where weird underground fight ing was necessary. The tribesmen invariably retire with their personal property and live stock to the bowels of the earth, whence they pepper the attacking troops, who have to "walk over a vast rabbit warren, com posed of enormous-boulders, piled to a height of 200 feet. Parties from the Camel Corps, pre ceded by torchbearers, have recently explored this labyrinth of recesses. Though some loss was sustained, the tribesmen now know that immunity has vanished, and that the arm of the Government is able to reach them. By the last mail the King received from Mr Agar Wynne, the Common wealth Postmaster-General, the fir...

Welcome to Baseballers [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Welcome to Baseballers There are people who think, rightist or wrongly, that the Archimedean lever; of life is politics, and they decry'ath letics and games generally as amount ing to something ineffective, if not au sheer waste of time. History does not bear them out in this. One of the things that go with'advanced civilisation ia the spirit of sport. The sport of sav ages is war,' that of civilisation is ath letics; and it can . have and has had an influence on national relations and even character. The visit of the American baseballers has its measure of value ia this respect, besides its influence in probably popularising a new depart ment of sport. What Americans do they like, to do in a large way, from business deals to railway accidents, audi; their love for and patronage of base ball exceeds those of Australia for* football or cricket. They have brought the game to its highest degree of per fection. A good exponent of it may walk the primrose path to wealth, and reputation. ...

PEERYBINGLE PAPERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

I was discussing the Christmas and New Year holidays with my friend The Journalist, and we were both in clined to be pessimistic on the subject. The Journalist, it seems, had. spent New Year's Eve and New Year's Day with Hobbes, a friend of his, a free lance writer. - "There were six other guests beside myself, all of them men," said my friend. "Hobbes is a married man with children, _ but his family was away, so he asked us down to his sea side house to spend the New Year •with him. I can tell you I felt sorry for poor old Hobbes, because I myself have a pain fully accurate knowledge of how v many yards of letterpress are required to-equal a fathom of beer or a cubic foot of whisky, and it hurt me to see the manner in which those hungry and thirsty souls ate and drank Hobbes's brains. "The -quantity of provender they consumed for two meals on New Year's Day was amazing, and the wet goods they polished off between, meals positively appalled me; especially as I felt much too depresse...

Airman Will Not Fight [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Airman Will Not Fight It is lamentable to see aeronauts quarrelling:. The airman can be nothing if not cool. He leads a breezy exist ence, and by: temperament he should be passionless, imperturbable, and of iron nerve. Yet the deplorable has hap pened. Two airmen have fallen out— not out of their aeroplanes—but out of temper. M. Roux asserts that M! Jules Yedrines slapped his face at Helio polis. . M. Boux has challenged M. Yedrines to fight a duel. Yerdrines only last week flew , from Paris to Cairo, across: to Constantinople, thence to Tripoli, finally landing at the steps of Shepherd's Hotel, Cairo. How he came to slap anyone's face is difficult to say. To work an aeroplane single-handed for 3000 miles is rib light feat; it should keep a man fairly busy; he would seem to have no time to slap anyone's face. And why . he should go out of his way to do, it at Heliopolis is more mysterious still. He might, in a moment of irritation, tell a man to go -•■tOvHelriopoliSi as a sort of me...

Tango Dance Tabooed [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Tango Dance Tabooed It is hard on Australians to learn that the tango dance is going*' out of * fashion. It has not yet been imported, and now its chances are remote. An Australian dance has not yet been in vented, but at the crucial moment a national dance, like the National Anthem, will suddenly appear. Why did the tango ever come to being and spread? Ask the locusts why, after years of inanition, they suddenly ap pear in swarms, to vanish again as suddenly. These things are a mystery, almost as insoluble as the disappear ance of local statesmen, who wonder to find themselves once more obscuro politicians for no apparent reason whatever. The leaders of London society——that is, the pick of Who's Who on the women's side—have con demned the tango as inimical to morality. They call it the dance of moral death, which means the end of it, like giving a dog a bad name. The society leaders know what moral death—in others—really amounts to. The leaders of society at St. Kilda and those at ...

Police Given Discretion [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

Police Given Discretion Mr Murray, the Chief Secretary, ap pears to be reasoning somewhat in a circle when he says discretion is to be given to the police to question within reasonable limits persons * supposed to have some knowledge of a given of fence, but that anything approaching the abuse of freedom, which has be come known as the "Third Degree," must be avoided. The police have al ways liad that measure of discretion. They could not perform the duties of their office if they did not; but are there regulations which prescribe what are the limits of that discretion? That is what is needed—so that if third de gree methods are applied, they may be susceptible of definition, and a specific complaint may lie against the officer who has erred. A loose and floating term such as "discretion" is too elastic. It reminds one of the continually recur ring phrase of the man who assumes the very point at issue and refers to "all right thinking people." An abuse of the prerogative of discreti...

RUNNING WOLF [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

RUNNING "WOLiF By OIjAF BAKER. It was in the days when the great trains of emigrant waggons went west. Over the endless prairies, day after day, the waggons jolted and rumbled, under a burning sun. Sometimes a cool breeze would blow from the Sweet Pine hills, and a million acres of prai rie grass would go billowing: like the sea. But for the most part it was a dry, I windless heat, which made the jour ney difficult for man and beast. On the day on which the great thing happened to little Ned Turner, the prairie grass was billowing. He had felt the heat very much before, and had been glad enough to lie under the cover of his father's waggon, while the jolt of the great wheels kept his body on the bump." But to-day he.felt very strong because of the breeze and the billowing of the grass, and he rode his little Indian pony like a man, sitting very straight in the sad dle, and feeling very splendid indeed. As to Indians, Ned did not often fear them. If there were any about—and though th...
