MEN DIE LIKE FLIES. HOW PAPEETE SUFFERED. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

MEN DIE LIKE FLIES.   HOW PAPEETE SUFFERED.   WELLINGTON (N.Z.)-The steamer   Salvor called at Papeete in the lat-   ter part of November and found all business at a standstill owing to the ravages of influenza.   The natives and French settlers were dying like flies. There was no coal and the lighters, and as labor was unavailable the problem of filling the bunkers     was a difficult one.       The captain of the Salvor gave all       the ship's medical supplies to the auth- orities ashore to cope with the epi-   demic, and the ship's crew tended the sick and aided in burying the   dead. The crew obtained coal from   the supply yard and wheeled it in   trucks a quarter of a mile to the pier where the Salvor was berthed. After a Stay of fifteen days 150 tons of coa...

POWER FOR THE NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

POWER FOR THE NORTH.   Designs and specifications are being completed for the extension of the Great Lake scheme to a capacity of 42,000 h.p., and considerable progress has been made on the designs of the proposed Arthur's Lakes and King River developments, but owing to the possibility of the West Coast ores being treated at Risdon, it is likely that the King River scheme will not be pro- ceeded with as early as would other- wise have been the case. Hitherto there has not been sufficient induce- ment to deliver power at Launceston, but it is possible that at an early date there will be sufficient business to jus- tify the line and sub-station and the cost of producing the power. A sup- ply of 400 h.p. is required for the manufacture of white lead by a new process, which will be increased to 2000 h.p. in the near future. An offer to supply the additional 1600 h.p, if the necessary machinery could be ob- tained from England, has been com- municated to the syndicate throug...

POSSIBLE NEW' INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

POSSIBLE NEW INDUSTRIES. Everything which is possible is being   done in the way of preparation for trade expansion after the war, and a schedule is being prepared of all the important chemicals which have been imported into Australia, but which can be made in Tasmania by means of hydro-electric power, and it is confi- dently believed that this will bring to light many possible, and profitable new industries. Aluminium is one of the manufactures which is likely to be in- cluded amongst the new industries in the State, and the manufacture of   wood pulp is another; it is possible   that both these industries will be es- tablished in Tasmania before the next year has run its course. A number of inquiries for fairly large blocks of power for industries have been suc- cessful, but it is hoped that by the end of next year machinery will have been provided which will make it possible for such profitable business to be accepted.

NAMING THE PEACE BABIES [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

NAMING THE PEACE BABIES Peace has its babies no less renown- ed than the war babies of which we have heard so much in recent years, and many an infant who has committed the error of judgment of being born in the past fortnight has been presented with a name that will proclaim the period of its birth for all time. It has for long been a habit with proud parents to fire their offspring names commemorating some notable event which took place at the time of their birth, or some man or woman who was famous at the period. The world has had many Wellingtons, Waterloos, Horatio Nelsons, and Flor- ence Nightingales. The Boer War brought forth a crop of Roberts, Kit- cheners, Ladysmiths, Mafekings, Baden- Powells, and Pretorias. The fashion of presenting war names to helpless infants was satirised in comic song at the time which related that "The baby's name was Kitchener, Kruger, Paul, Majuba, Bobs." The European war produced an army corps of Haîgs, several Dreadnought crews of Jellicoes, Fr...

CABLES IN BRIEF It is reported from Philadelphia that   serious explosions have damaged the houses of several prominent citizens. Tho authorities attribute the outrage to I.W.

VOLUNTARY ORGANISATIONS! A PLEA FOR THEIR CONTINU- ANCE.   It is being urged by Mr. D. Mackin- non, M.L.A., who is about to relin- quish the postiion of Director-General of Recruiting, that every effort should be made to keep in existence va- rious organisations of voluteer work-     ers in Australia which were formed throughout the war.

VICTORY AND PEACE [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

VICTORY AND PEACE (By "Tassie.") After the noise of cannons' roar, After the shot and shell of Hell; After the dreadful war is o'er And cable came that all is well, Our hearts rejoiced in news so dear- Victory! Peace! is here! is herel German hate has had its day,   To fields of battle, cruelly dyed,   By lust for greed of German horde, Came the Lord God of our great race: "Enough!'' He cried, "of death and   hate; Lay down your arms, I've put to flight Enemy power and might against right; German greed has lost the day! "You drew your swords in cause of right, In Justice to defend the weak ;   You fought for liberty with your might; I heed the prayers of those who seek   To right the wrong, to "bring release- Victory I give and Peace! Peace! German might has passed away."

GERMAN BOOBY-TRAPS SOME OP THE DEVICES. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 3 January 1919

GERMAN BOOBY-TRAPS SOME OF THE DEVICES. The Boche is nothing if not cun- ning, and when compelled by force of circumstances to retire "according to plan," as he was doing a few weeks ago, he does his best to render the evacuated area as unpleasant as pos- sible for the incoming tenants by leav- ing in his wake delay-action mines, or booby-traps. These are either timed by various subtle devices to explode automatically after the lapse of several days or even weeks, or are so arrang- ed that any incautious handling of the bait will fire the charge by the closing of an electric circuit. Before our troops take up their per- manent quarters, however, detach- ments of tunnellers, specially selected for the job, are sent forward to ex- amine likely spots, and report all safe for occupation. The wily Hun must   have many a quiet chuckle over some of the little souvenirs he leaves behind him when handing over his comfort- able dug-outs to the enemy, but "the best-laid schemes o'...
