Where Infanticide is -No -Crime, H,LW INVADER'S CHILD. PARIS. JURY'S VERDICT.. SIt- is no crime (says a Paris cable to the New York "Tribune") for a mother to kill a child born as the re sult of her violation by a German soldier, a-Paris jury decided recently, and the verdict of acquittal was re ceived with cheers by the crowd in the court The case was that of Josephine Barthelemy, 2.0 years old, and a do mestic servant- at Gennevilliers. She is the eldest of five children; her father is a widower, and one of her brothers has been killed in the war. The child was born on August 15 last, and the mother killed it imme diately. When the case came to trial it was only after the greatest difii culty that the girl could be prevailed upon to give the reason for her deed. "1 killed the child because its father was a German," she finally said, almost in a whisper. After fur ther questioning by the Court she was persuaded to tell her story. "I was a servant in the military hos pital at Chiamb...

BY TRAIN THROUGH THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
BY TRAIN- THROUGH THE BUSH. "The first part of a. journey 'out bush' in the Northern Territory is generally taken in the train, just as it might be in more civilised coun tries. -Yet this particular train is of peculiar jehterest," Else R. Masson says in "An Untamed Territory"-the Northern Territory of Australia which she visited during 1913-1914, "for it is the pioneer on what will one day be the Great Australian Overland Route. It seems to have a special personality of.its own. It is a plucky, fussy little train, full of self-import ance, -as it starts out twice a week on its journey of a hundred and forty seven miles to Pine Creek. Every Monday and Thursday, at 8 o'clock in the- morning, it stands all ready at the station, where its departure is await ed by a crowd of light-suited and hel meted .white men, agitated Chinese classping shiny.baskets and large blue -umbr.ellas, and black-boys with par cels,and. letters for the country mail.

OPEN COLUMN. RICHMOND BUILDING REGULATIONS. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
OPEN COLUMN. RICHMOND BUILDING REGULATIONS. To the Editor. Sir,-Some two years ago the Tram way Co. built a large, unsightly erec tion of wood upon the Hoddle-street frontage of their land at the rear of the power-house. That being a "brick area," the Richmond Council took action and caused the company to have the erection taken down, stat ing that it must be of brick. Council lors then declared that such an eye sore in so prominent a position was "a disgrace to the city." Noticing this morning a number of deep holes being sunk on the same site, I gathered, by enquiries, that a building, similar to that which the council had condemned, but much larger, was going to be put up. If plans have not been submitted to the city surveyor, I would suggest that he at once make enquiries and report to the council. Yours, etc., "ANTI-VANDAL." April 11.

MR. TUDOR'S OPPONENT. LEFT TO PLAY A LONE HAND. SERGT. COPELAND'S POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
MR. TUDOR'S OPPONENT. LEFT TO PLAY A LONE HAND. SERGT. COPELAND'S POSITION. Stimulated by the seeming enthusi asm, and spurred on by the promised support of adherents in the same cause, brave men at times attempt a task that is almost impossible. In such a case the standard-bearer counts on something more than the mere lip-loyalty of those who sent him forward. He stands up for them. He should not be left alone. On some occasions, however, it is realised beforehand that the effort is merely a sacrifice offered up in the hope that it will be a means to securing another end. Sergeant Charles Louis Cope land, nominated as the Nationalist Party's candidate for Yarra, must be wondering at present just in which po sition he stands. The name of -Sergeant Copeland, with, presumably, the necessary de. posit, has been handed in to the Re turning Officer. The nominations closed ten days ago, but, up to yes terday, that was about all that had been done. And this shy, well-spoken young man is op...

Mr. A. McLellan, M.L.C., Retires from Business and Politics.—He was Pioneer Member of Labor Party in Upper House.—Reasons for his Retirement. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
Mr. A. McLellan, M.L.C., Retires from Business and Politics.-He Was Pioneer. Member of Labor Party in Upper House.-Reasons for his Retirement. The announcement of the retire ment of Mr. A. McLellan, M.L.C., one o- the representatives of this dis trict, did not occasion any surprise among those in the inside running of the Labor movement. Mr. McLellan recently disposed of his large small goods manufacturing business in Mary-street, and in view of the fact that his health had not been good for some time, it was regarded as likely that he would elect to also retire from public life as well as business and enjoy a quiet time for the present. There was never a more straight, conscientious man in the Labor move ment than Adam McLelland, and his passing is a distinct loss to the La bor Party and to the Parliament and country in general. Though Mr.' fc Lellan did not go as far as advocat ing conscription on the public plat form, it is known that he is very much dissatisfied with the present...

Visitors to the last meeting 6d. the "old" Richmond branch of the Po?.it ical Labor Council, now generalIy known as Phelan's Labor League,.L hd a great night's entertainment. The fun was fast and furious for a long time, and there was a denouement,at the end that for realism is seldom rivalled on the dramatic stage. Word had heen passed around that the pro ceedings at the meeting were likely to be more than usually interesting, and, scenting a good news story, re presentatives of the morning news papers got not on the trail. The meet ings of the branch have always been open to the public, but for some rea son the taking of notes by reporters has been barred. One newspaper man on the present occasion was, however, promised by a prominent official that he would be supplied next day with a special note of the meeting.

Another Kind. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Guardian — 14 April 1917
Another Kind. The barrister was, in the judge's private opinion, simply wasting the time of the court, and in the course of a long-winded speech, he dwelt at quite unnecessary length on the ap pDarance of certain bags connected with the case. "They might," he went on pompous ly, "they might have been full bags, or they might have been half-filled bags, or they might: even have been empty bags, or-" "Or perhaps," dryly interpolated the judge, "they might have been wind bags!"
