Reason of Revolt PROSPERITY AND DISCONTENT. PROMISES NOT HONORED. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Reason of Revolt PROSPERITY AND D!SCONTENT. PROMISES NOT HONORED. Regarding the unrest which has only now burst into open revolt, Mau rice Baring, writing in March, 1914, in his book, "The Mainsprings of Rus sia," said:- a There has perhaps never been a period when Russia was more ma terially prosperous than at the pre sent moment, or when the great ma jority of the people seemed to have so little obvious cause for discon tent; and yet-it would be futile to deny it-unmistakable signs of dis content exist. Seeds of discontent have been sown, and are every day being sown broad cast, and unless their early shoots are uprooted in time, it is difficult to imagine that they will not bear mo mentous fruit in the future, however distant such a future may be. Whereupon the casual inquirer would probably ask a further ques tion: "If the Russian people are dis contented, why are they discontented? What are these seeds of discontent? WThence do they come? And are their grievances substantial or...
Parson Tales. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Parson Tales. Some good "parson stories" are told in Mr William T. Palmer's "Old Yarns of E~nglish Lakeland." In one parish the people when they arrived at the church door found it shut. The clerk blandly announced: "This is to give notice that there will be no service in this church for a matter of four weeks, as the parson's best hen has setten herself in the pulpit." -It was a blind parson who halted in the middle of his reading to ask, when -a farmer clattered, down- the. little church' in his--iron-shod clogs, "Wha's that come in?" "It's Dan Mossop, of -Fell End," "Afoot or on:horsebaok?" - Late-comers went in with care after that.
A Mystery Man NICHOLAS SUMMED UP. CURSED, HATED AND LOVED. MORAL CONGLOMERATE DEFIES ASSAY. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
A Mystery Man NICHOLAS SUMMED UP. CURSED, HATED AND LOVED. MORAL CONGLOMERATE DEFIES ASSAY. In "Russia and the World," written in 1915 by Stephen Graham, the well known war correspondent with the Russian army, an endeavor is made to make a psychological analysis of the Czar Nicholas: When the Czar came to the throne he showed himself to be an idealist, even a Utopian idealist, by his pas sionate efforts for the establishment of universal peace. The cause of peace was chiefly associated with the name of the Czar. It was strange that this great absolute monarch should as sociate himself with the cause dearest of all to democrats and Liberals, Strange that he should be the col league of men like W. T. Stead and Andrew Carnegie. Many said that the Czar was not sincere. The sar castic and cynical found Nicholas de livered wholly to their untender mercy when at last, owing to non acceptance of Japanese demands, war broke out between Russia and Japan. But a worse denial of ideals was to fo...
Peace Man's Fight "ADDRESSES" THE GERMANS. BOMBS IN TIGHT CORNER. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Peace Man's Fight "ADDRESSES" THE GERMANS. BOMBS IN TIGHT CORNER. In an amusing letter from the front a soldier describes how a "peace man" fought with great bravery, defeating the enemy when he found he could not lake any other course. "A mate of mine from Swansea fought like a cartload of devils out for a night," he writes. "At home he was a Socialist. Used to bawl a lot at the street corners about the Broth erhood of Man, and all that. Says I to him in a chaffing way, 'There's a lot of your German brothers in that dug-out there. Would you like to go and spout to them?' 'Yes,' he replied, and picked up an armful of bombs. I looked at him and smiled. 'You needn't smile,' he said. 'This is the only kind of spouting that I can do now.' He went forward and sent a bomb crashing into the dug-out. A volley came back in reply. The So cialist chap threw back for all he was worth. Half-a-dozen Huns came rush ing out. One of them made -for me. "The other five had a fancy for the peace and br...

Swan Street Trams Should Be Tapping Southern and North-East Suburbs.—Fine Possibilities of Development Blocked by Parochial Spirit.—Need for Citizens and Business People to Urge a Better Working Agreement Between Rival Trusts. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 24 March 1917
Swan Street Trams Should Be Tap ping Southern and North-East Suburbs. - Fine Possibilities of Development Blocked by Parochial Spirit.-Need for Citizens and Business People to Urge a Better Working Agreement Between Ri val Trusts. Little is likely to come-at pres ent, at any rate-of the proposal to build an electric tramway from Clif ton Hill, via Church-street, to Prah ran. Mr. F. A. McCarty, the con sulting engineer, has submitted a set of figures, based on the new cost of tramway equipment, as to the outlay necessary for such a line. A great increase is shown. The war has greatly affected the price of steel rails, copper wire, and electrical work. Collingwood Council has never been enthusiastic about the prospects of such a tramway, and at least one Prahran councillor is of opinion that now is not the time to spend money on further tramway ventures, especially in view of the in creased cost of material. Cr. Bell thinks that Richmond and Prahran could act independently of Collingw...

BY THE SEA. RICHMOND CHILDREN HAVE HAPPY OUTING OVER 5000 RESIDENTS, YOUNG AND OLD, GO TO HAMPTON. Happy children's voices made mu sic in the streets of Richmond on Tuesday morning. Like brooks they flowed to the Richmoid station and like brooks they chattered as they went. Grown-ups added to the num bers, and at the station all the streams converged into a mighty river bound for the sea. People from other suburbs passing in trains look ed in surprise at the swarms of young folk and basket-laden elders who flocked around the station entrance and on the platform. The explanation given to strangers' queries of "What's on?" was "Schools' and citizens' pic nic to-day; we're off to Hampton." So off they went-practically every child in Richmond. The babel of voices which arose from the trains as they drew out resembled the din wafted out of some gigantic aviary. About 5000 children made the trip. Though Richmond was deserted as far as children were concerned, the fixture did not rise to t...
