Tub clouds arc darkening orer the Home Rule question. 70,000 rifles have been smuggled into Ulster, and the Nationalists are also arming. Bitter language is being used in the Mouse of Commons by both sidos. Regiments have been ordered to Ulster and eleven warships are in Belfast Lough. Mr. Asquith saj's that noth ing could be more disastrous than for the Opposition to suppose that they and their Ulster friends were the only persons in the country preparo 1 to risk their lives. Unless the Ulstennon tooic life first their own lives would not be endangered. Mr. Churchill added that he • did not believe civil war would ever come, but if a rebel lion occurred the Government would put it down.

One of the 'Weaker Sex.' [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914

One of the 'Weaker Sex.' rf — Under the new Republican regime tho position ox the Chinese woman f ;.i has boon notably improved, - nonu-' naily at least ; but it is highly improbable that any of the svci vanced" ladies of modern China will ever wield half tho influence pos sessed by the old '-'Empress-Mother" Tseu-Hsi, the real ruler of the Celes tial Empire for many years. Her life was one long, though un edifying, .melodrama. The daughter of a mandarin, born oil November 17, 1834, she had a sister who was wedded to Prince Chouen. This Imperial connection fired Tseu llsi's ambition ; she managed to at tract the Emperor's attention, and became one of his numerous wives. The birth of her son, Tsai-Chouen (the Quintessence of Purity) fulfilled her fondest hopes, and hcnceforth her baleful career really began. . In I860 Tseu-Hsi poisoned the Emperor, and declared herself "Em press-Mother" and virtual mouarch of China. Her first delicate atten tion to her deceased husband's rela tives w...

Return of the Rubber Boom. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914

Return of the Rubber Bcom. A (By A. STAINS 3IAK0EHS.) It js really a wonderful substance,* is rubber. Consider what it is in the beginning—just milk flowing from the trees that have been slash ed by the native workers, Yot from this liquid we get a substace of enormous strength, v durability, and elasticity. I always liken rubber to cheese. It is milk to begin with; it is raado to curdle like milk—by throwing salt into it—and, like cheese, yon get it in all shapes, sizes, colours, and qualities. If we don't actually eat rubber, it is doubtful if we could now live without it. i "It io extraordinary when one comcs to think of Iho enormous number of uses to which rubber is [ put. We find it not only in our own homes at every turn, but we And it on our v.-ay from our homes to our business ; we see rubber at everj' stage, and when we get to our l>usinr>f;R w«\ ft ml it. irx our offtcea. Certainly we cannot live without rubber, and I nm not sure that ws are able to die without the a...

King Edward Tickled. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914

King Edward Tickled. Perhaps one of the most amusing incidents which occurred at the Havinarket—the thoatro with which Mr. Cyril Maude has been so .long associated—was that in which tho ltt to King Edward and poor ' Wil liam Terriss figured. The episode is refated by Mr. Maude. It was during the run of " The Marriage of Convenience," the last engagement but one for Terriss, as it happened, and His Majesty, then, of course, Prince of Wales, was In the Royal box with Frincess Maud of Wales. Between the acts King Edward sent for Mr. Cyril Maude, his wife, and Terriss, being desir ous of expressing his gracious ap proval of their efforts to amuse. In describing tho affair, Mr. Maude confesses that he was not a little nervous, his conversational powers being at their- very worst. Things were consequently going very stiffly when Terriss, in his cheery, sailor like manner, remarked, "We all hope Persimmon will win tho Gold Cup to-morrow, sir.'-' "Thank you, Mr. Terriss," replied His Majest...

VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL ROLLS. METROPOLIS AND COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 8 May 1914

VICTORIA'S ELECTORAL ROLLS. METROPOLIS AND COUNTRY. The revision of the electoral rolls for the Victorian Assembly has given some startling results. No less than 100,000 names have been added to the old lists, an achievement which shows that the past ministries were sadly parsimonious, or that electoral officials gave sorry re turns for money paid them. Politicians may amuse themselves by trying to apportion the blame as accurately, or as inaccurately, as their personal interests suggest, but the average elector looking at the figures finds other matter for serious concern. The old roll gave the country electorates 363,129 voters, the metropolitan constituencies 318,786; that is to say the provinces were 44,343 votes to the good. The old state of things was bad ; the population and, as a consequence, the political strength of greater Melbourne was a menace. But the perfecting of the rolls has shown that the evil is far greater than most of us supposed. The metropiiitan electorates h...

Murn and Stewart it was resolved that Mr. Hutchinson be thanked for his kind offices in obtaining the grant. The president pointed out that the interest would become due on 20 June on the debentures. The smallest de benture holder held ^175 worth, and perhaps it would be convenient to them to pty that amount off. The matter coul,1 be considered next June, even if a slight bank overdraft had to be ar ranged for.—Deferred accordingly. The secretary submitted samples of covers for illust...
