DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
DRINK AND DRIVERS' WITS i A verdict of "Manslaughter" was re turned yesterday by the Coroner's jury at the inquest on the two victims of the motor-lorry accident in the Old Kent road last week (reports "Tha Daily 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 influence of drink." Several witnesses described the pace of the lorry (a brewery vehicle) as ex cessive 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 his condi...

MR ROGER WALLACE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
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 j over all his assets to trustees for the benefit of his creditors, and a great I many of them were paid in full. He studied for the Bar, and was called in April, 1882. Hh earned for many years up to 100S between £6000 and £7000 per annum. j The Oflicial Receiver: "Why did you not stick to your profession?

His fees from the directorships varied; one year they reached £5000. One company brought him a prolit of £30,000; the financial difficulties of another caused him to lose £30,000.

CHOCOLATE SUPPLIED [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 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 L..C.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 the 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 Lhat a revenue of nearly £4000 v/ould 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. From automatic machines for choco late (says "The Daily News") it seems but an easy and natural step t...
THE DUKE'S DEAL OBJECT LESSON FOR LONDONERS [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 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 such 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 tleet in the decisive victory of La Hogue. In moro recent times it was a Russell who carried the Urst 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 Gr...
ROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OF IRISH HISTORY [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
ROMANCE OF AN ISLAND RELIC OF IRISH HISTORY An interesting provision as to the future of Coney Island—one of the four islands in Lough Neagh—is made in the will of the late Viscount Charl mont, who left unsettled personal estate of the value of £4976. His remains are to be buried on the island, and he left £36 a year for pay ment of a keeper, who will live on the island and keep the "old tower walls and my last resting place in good order." Neither the island nor the house is to be let, and the public are not to be allowed to visit the island except on Tuesdays and Saturdays. People coming to the island on yachts from a distance may land at any hour and have tho use of the visitors' room in. the keeper's lodpre.

The present Mar quis of Donegal is, in fact, the Here ditary Lord High Admiral of Lough Neagh. There are still tho remains of defences on each of the ...
LOST TELEGRAMS POST OFFICE MUDDLE [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
LOST TELEGRAMS POST OFFICE MUDDLE Two telegrams concerned in the case have been lost by the Post Oitice, it was stated at Chatham Police Court yesterday (says "The Daily Mail ot December 20), when Karl Ilentschel was charged on remand with sending a telegram to his wife, threatening to kill her. Ilentschel 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 ceen 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 grave evidence at an inquest at Newington yesterday (reports "The Daily News" on December 9). The inquiry concerned the death of the 13-year-old daughter of an Italian confectioner, named Brometti, of Southwark Bridge road. The mother stated that for the last six months the child had been attend ed by a number of doctors, and a week before her death she was seen by Dr. Sherwood, who on November 27 told her that the child would not get bet ter.

LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 20 February 1914
LONDON'S GREETING CAUTION BEFORE CORDIALITY. | London receives the Man from Over I sea like a coy maiden being intro duced to her brother's pal (writes "A Visiting Australian" in "The Daily I 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. Jf he makes the right impression, she may find a cor dial placo for him. The colonial does pretty well wher ever he goes (they tell me), because he has developed in him that utter lack of respect for respected tradi tions. Ho is like the American com mercial traveller—he can bo 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 geting 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...
