FINGER-PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914
FINGER-PRINT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION- RECORD. Engli3li detectives are astonished by the fact that, though the Paris police were in possession of an infallible clue, in the form of a finger-print on the glass of the discarded frame, to the Identity of the man who stole "La Gio conda," from the Louvre two years ago, no arrest was made until last Friday (says "The Daily Mail" of December 16). "In France," said a prominent au thority yesterday, "although the police take finger-prints, they depend chiefly on physical measurements, which they classify and file. If tliey arrest a man they can by his measurements identify him with former crimes, but they are somewhat at sea unless an arrest has been made. In England the finger-print is the chief form of identification; Ihe ordinary measurements are taken, but they are of secondary importance. Give us a fair finger-print, and if the maker of that print has been in the hands of the police before we can in 999 cases out of 1000 tell you who he I...
DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914
DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS ' A verdict of "Manslaughter" was re turned yesterday by the Coroner's Jury it the Inquest on the two victims of the motor-lorry accident. In the Old Kent road last week (reports "The Dally News," December 9). The jury expressed the opinion that the driver of the lorry, a man named George Clevett, "drove at a rapid speed whilst under the influenc.e of drink." Several witnesses described the pace of the lorry (a brewery vehicle) as ex- . cesslve or reckless, but one witness, an L.C.C. • tram conductor, did not con sider that the driver was to blame, while others declared that he did his best to avoid an accident. Interesting evidence was given in support of the allegation that Clevetl was under the influence of drink. A constable who arrested'him after the accident declared that the man was drunk—that he was very unsteady, smelt strongly of drink, and was very thick'in his speech. Another police wit ness added that- Clevett looked dazed He did not attribute hi...

MR ROGER WALLACE The public examination of Mr Roger Wallace, K.C., regarding his failure was held yesterday In the Court of Bank ruptcy (says "The Daily Mail" of De cember 17). He said he began business as a chemical merchant many years ago. The year 1S97 was disastrous, and his liabilities reached £150,000. He handed over all his assets to trustees for the benefit of his creditors, and a great many of them were paid in full, rfc studied for the Bar, and was called in April, 1882. Hh earned for many years up to 1U0S between £6000 and £7000 per annum. The Official Receiver: Why did you not stick to your profession?

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914
CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED Automatic machines for the supply of chocolate on the L-C.C. tramcars are "the latest thing". A six months' experiment with them on tramcars running from the Ham mersmith depot is recommended by the Highways Committee of the LiC.C. The machines are to be fitted to the upper "saloon" decks. The proposal comes from a Mr A. H. Vincent, who is pre pared to pay a rent at tho rate of £2/10/ per car each year. If the experiment is a success and the roof-covered cars over the tramway system generally are fitted, with these boxes, the Highways Committee thinks that a revenue of nearly £400-) vould be secured. Apart from the financial question, they add, "the supply in the Council's tramcars of cheap and wholesome chocolate would confer a considerable benefit upon the passengers using the tramways" particularly in the case of the all-night cars and the workmen's services. Prom automatic machines for choco late (says "The Daily News") it seems but an easy and natural step to...
LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914
LONDON'S SHEETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIAIilTT. London receives the Man from Over sea • like a coy maiden being Intro duced to her brother's pal (writes "A Visiting Australian" in "The Dally Chronicle.") She's not going to take any risks.'. She holds him at arm's length to inspect him and watch him wriggle, and then, if he makes the right impression, she may find a cor dial place for him. The colonial does pretty well wher ever he goes (they tell me), because ho has developed In him that utter lack of respect for respected tradi tions. He is like the American com mercial traveller—he can be relied upon to "butt in." But the colonial usually does It very nicely. He ap proaches a situation circumspectly, and when the band begins to play, if he isn't right up alongside the stand ard-bearer or getlng choice secrets from the drum-major, he is a most disappointing sort of colonial. Nevertheless, among the many men I have known in the Antipodes who have come to London, there have been quite ...
THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS (By Howard Evans in "The Dally News.") [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 19 February 1914
THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS (By Howard Evans In "The Dally News.") ' I always had a kindly feeling for the great Ducal House of Bedford, for I know no other house that occupies «uch a distinguished place in the annals of our country. It was a Russell who expended his labor and his wealth in draining the vast fen lands, known as the Bedford level; It was a Russell who laid down his life on the scaffold in Lincoln's Inn Fields in defence of English liberty; it was a Russell who was one of the foremost In ridding the nation of the Stuart Kings; it was a Russell who commanded our fleet in the decisive victory of La Hogue. In more recent times it was a Russell who carried the flrst Reform Bill, and throughout his long life was a staunch champion of civil and religious liberty. The present Duke of Bedford has done a public service by giving an ac count of the stewardship of himself and his predecessors by the book Which he published a few years ago, called "The Story of a ...

LOST TELEGRAMS POST OFFICE MUDDLE Two telegrams concerned In the case have been lost by the Post Office, it.-was stated at Chatham Police Court yesterday (says "The Daily Mail" of December 20), when Karl Hentschel was charged on remand with sending a telegram to his wife, threatening to kill her. Hentschel is the man who recently gave himself up as a German spy, the prosecution, however, being withdrawn because he might have thought that he was shielded by a promise of protection made to him by another authority to which he had made confidential communications. Richard Saunderson, a clerk in the Accountant General's Department, General Post Office, London, said that the originals of two telegrams which had been asked for could not be found. Arthur Edgar Kimber, overseer at the Chatham Post Office, stated that he sent the missing telegrams to the secretary at the General Post Office, London, and had not seen them since. The Magistrate: The telegrams were produced to me in this court....

MOTHER'S SUSPICION STRANGE SMELLING MEDICINE. A mother who was dissatisfied "with the medicine which a doctor gave her child and sent It to the authorities for analysis save evidence at an inquest at Newington yesterday (reports "The Daily News" on December 9).
