NEXT SUNDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 11 October 1905

NEXT SUNDAY. 'When the student of the coming centuries studies the history of man kind to-day, standing forth frorn the grosser materialism of the age will be found tho noble efforts of charity. It is so common to-day to assume' that the world is entirely governed by greed, and men's actions determined alone by what will result to their own benefit, that we are prone to overlook tho noble monuments that constitute an imperishable record of the world's progress. Every hospital that car ries out its grand mission in town or country is in itself a token of tbi better parts of men. Of all the in fluences that 'govern life there is no thing so ennobling as charity. Like justice it benefits the giver as much as the recipient, ' ' The drying up of a single tear ha6 more Of honest fnmo than shedding seas of gore.' . It is not given to all of us to play a leading part in the performance of these benevolences. The formation nf snriptv necessitates that some mvtet bear the burden in the heal o...

Presout moment perhaps is inop portune. Disappointed, but fully appre ciate consideration your Cabinet,' ('Signed) WILLIAM BOOTH.' Mr. Deakin sent the following cable message in reply.: — ' Much rogret your inability to prooeed ; assunio that allusion to difficulties and pos Eiblo conflict hare no reference to Australia directly or indirectly.' Mr. Deakin does not at present wiBb to make any comment on the position. His belief is that General Booth's cable message is the result of oppositiou on the part of trade -unions in England, and thostricturos of such speakers as Mr. Jesse Col lings, M.P., and others, to whose remarks great publioity has been given. ?

THE COLLECTOR'S POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 11 October 1905

THE COLLECTOE'S POSITION. At the conclusion of the ordinary business at the meeting of the Hos pital Committee on Monday, Mr. Lancler, the collector, attended on the committee and placed his case before them with reference to commission on tbe proceeds of the demonstration. After Mr. Langler had retired the matter was thoroughly discussed by the Committee. The Chairman pointed out that the collector had not taken any active steps in promoting the demonstration. He seemed lacking in organisation. He thought they had proceeded on wrong lines in the past, and was happy to state that at a meeting held the other night there was complete harmony. The Societies were all going to work together and do every thing possible to make tbe occasion a success. Tile Butherglcn people had an army of collectors, and that is what they wanted. As the work was done it hardly seemed right to him that the collector should scoop 20% commission. This question of entertainments had always been a vexed one, an...

The Golf Ball. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 11 October 1905

The Golf BaH. The winter season was suitably and happily wound up by the Golf Boll, held in the Old Oddfellows Hall on Friday evening last. There was a splendid attendance of mem bers and their friends, which was as it should be, as this is the only brand of golf ball that the biggest ' mug ' has no excuse for missing. Mes dames Walch and Kendall acted in the capacity of hon. secretaries, with a committee, consisting of Mesdames Morpbett, Taylor, Lang, Gillies. Morkham, Ireland, D. Smith, Bosen bloom, Sherwin, Broadbent, Begg and Misses. Smith and Graf. These ladies spared no effort to make the gathering a success, and considering that' they had also the work 'of pro viding the supper, then- task was no enviable one. Tho Old Oddfellows Hall does not lend itself for decora tive effect. With tho absence of a neutral background it is difficult to avoid a certain garishness which at close quarters is overpowering. More over, the main principle in ballroom decoration is to throw into sha...

An Open Air Address. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 October 1905

An Open Air Address. Mr. Thomas Campbell, who we understand intends speaking in sev eral of the centres in this district, delivered 'an address on Tuesday night in front of the Terminus Hotel. The subject of his address was ' Politics— The Scandal of the Cen tury.' There was only a limited attendance of electors. Mr. Camp bell is a freelance, whose views are largely along the Una of labor thought. Whether people agree with his argu ments or not, they can hardly help admiring a man trying in his own way to do what seemB best for his country. In view of recent events it was only natural that the speaker devoted a considerable attention to the land scandals, and a scathing denunciation of the practices that had been exposed. He was in favor of perpetual leasehold, considering -that it was wrong for the State to -part with -the ownership of the land. General Booth's immigration scheme, the i Shires Bill, and the Federal Gov ernment were in turn severely criti oised. A word of praise vre...
