PORTLAND PIETISTICAL INTERFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Truth — 14 February 1914

PORTLAND PIETISTICAL INTER FERENCE. No harmless amusement, not even that which is arranged to promote the sacred cause of charity, is safe from the prying practices and whining objections of the pietistical push. A very succcssful carnival was recently held at Portland' in aid of the funds of the local hospital, but had the ' will of the wowser prevailed the affair, in- ' stead of proving a boon to the institution, 1 would hove resulted jii a fituiueial failure, j The Portland puritans endeavored to plnce < all sorts of petty, puerile obstacles in the ; way of the promoters of the carnival. They . objected to this or that harmless and inno cent amusement, such .a? ordinary raffling, as "encouraging the jjamblin? spirit in the youne," and tried hv various other paltry, piffling device? to turn the show into a kind of Sunday school picnic run on snivel ling, snuffling, bmi-strus?l!ng principles.

The Hobart Cup meeting drew forth a | queer sample of racecourse jwindling and i public leg-pulling. One of the features of j the "fortnight" was the quantity of illicit I betting going on under the very noses of the j polico. As a result' of recent criticism in j "Truth," some effort was made at Elwick by j the racing officials to grapple with that erU; ; but practically no attempt was put forward ! at tho Launceston course. The result was that at Mowbray a sum of soroo three thou- . sand pounds less than Inst year passed' ■ through the totalisator; whereas, at Hobtirl, 46 bookmakers were ejected from the course and tho totalisator receipts exceeded those of ! , 1913 by approximately three thousand • pounds. Practically nothing had boon done I by anyone to suppress the general robbery ' of the racing club's revenue until a...

iia's Greatest State OFFEIS PROSPERITY TO YOU ! TASMANIA, Hie Island Treasure-House of our Commonwealth, lies within a few hours' steam of the mainjand. It is much closer to Melbourne than is Mildura, or any one of'a hundred country towns and districts thai tiiight he mentioned in Victoria. It is so close that it is amazing the intelligent and cncrgctic people of Victoria do not avail themselves of Tasmania's peerless opportunities as they could and should, establishing their homes anew in a beautiful Island State ■which offers the finest climate in this hemisphere for the benefit of their children and their wives. King Island, where many Victorians have recently settled, is a Btcpping-stone across Bass Strait, pointing the way towards Aus tralia's Greatest State. Tasmania is great because its possibilities mid its still-undeveloped resources are so great.
