INTEREST IN THE FILM VARIED USES [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914

INTEREST IN ThlE FILM VARIED USES It is only within the last two years that the motion picture has been re garded in the light of an educational factor, and within that tmie extraordinary strides have been made in the direction of the improvement and value of the serious side of the film industry (says the "Daily Telegraph" of November 19)" Only so recently as Monday last a large gathering of medical men and nurses attended the West-end Cinema in Leicester sqilare, to witness the screening of a number of films ot scien tific interest and importance. There is no subject which is out of the reach of the cinemna, and zoology, botany, chemistry, as well as history and in dustry, are now yielding films of the utmost value and implortance. So far as the masses are concerned, the motion-picture may be looked up on as a source of entertainment only, and this being so, the tendency to im prove the films that deal with drama, comedy, or subjects of domestic and human interest is one that cann...

"Supposing." she said. "that the Woman's Theatre becomes a perma nent institution, we are not going to try to oust the actor from his parts as the actor used to oust us. But speak ing personally, I think the ac', ."s pro fession a lamentable one sr men, though there is very little h:-m in it for women.

PURITY CRUSADE [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914

PURITY CRUSADE A mass meeting of men, to consider what can be done to check immorality, was held at the Willesden Hippodrome yesterday afternoon (says "Th's :?est minster Gazette" of December S), and the principal speakers were the Bishop of London and the Rev. C. Silvester Htorne. The Bishop stated that the words of Browning, "God's in His heaven, all's right with the world," could not be said now. We had been given a very good world, and if a mess had been made of it, it was man's fault and not God's. There was plenty of sunshine in the world, plenty of water, and plenty of land. There was a burst of laughter at the reference to land, whereupon Dr. In grant said, "Oh. MAr Lloyd George and I know each other: we are very good friends." i-e proceeded to declare that if they spoiled the whole thing by crowding in cute place and having star vation wages, and by allowing people to live in places not lit for dogs, then that was not God's fault.

SUFFRAGETTE "REVENfE" rAN-DWELLERS RUINED. A great fire in the timber-yards at Richmond-walk. ,Devonport, is the re. ply of the militant suffragettes to the recent arrest of Mrs Pankhurst on board the Majestic at Plymouth. SThe fire which raged to-day (says "The Daily News," of December 16) was the greatest ever seen in the Three Towns, and there could be no doubt as to its authorship, for messages statiUn that it was a "reply to the torture of Mrs Pankhurst." and asking, "How dare the Government arrest Mrs Pank. hurst and allow Sir Edward Carson and Mr Bonar Law to go free?" were fastened to adjacent railings. To make the revenge complete. the incendiaries chose for the o:trage the place whence sailed the special steamer which foiled the suffragettes' plans for the attempted rescue of Mrs Pack hurst. Is was here, too, that, on Thure. day week, "General" Drummond and the bodyguard waited in vain for many weary hours for the return of the police with their prisoner. Stored in the yar...

HOME RULE SOLEMN NATIONAL CONTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914

IIOME RULE SOLEMN NATIONAL CONTRACT. Speaking at a meeting in favor of Home Rule at Allen last night (says the 'Morning Post' of November 22), .Etr John Redmond, M.P., said that he could never have been a Home Ruler for one nmoment unless Home Rule to his mind meant a free Ireland-free for all creeds, free in all secular and reli gious matters from any spiritual domi nation, either from Rome or any place else. The truth was-and this was the best of all safeguards, and the history of the world showed it-bigotry could not long live in an atmosphere of freedom, and if there was to-day any illegitimate exercise of political power in Ireland and for his own part he did not admit it-such illegitimate exercise of politi cal power never could survive the es tablishment of a free Parliament.

VALUE OF SERVICES LIMIT OF £5000 [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 13 February 1914

VALUE OF SERVICES LIMIT OF £5000 Charles S. MŽellen, until recently President of the New: York, New. Haven, and Hartford Railway, and one of America's representative cape tains of industry, has (says the New York correspondint of "The Daily. Ex press") caused much indignation among the high-salaried executives ot the United- Stattes' by declaring that no man's -services to a corporation are worth more than £5000 a' year, which is ten times the amount once fixed by Mr. John Burns. Mr. Mellen's own salary, as head of the Great New England Railway Corporation, was several times that amount, but he confesses he would have worked Just as hard for £5000 a year as he did for. the larger sum. Mr. Mellen's argument is that who ever is capable. of earning £5000 a year must show capacity equal to the task of directing- any enterprise what ever. Nobody drawing inore than Mr. Mellen's stipulated~naxlmum has been found who is willing to second his views. P..Presidcnt ?-tIingsley, of th'e New.. Yo...
