The Great Montamor Case. CHAPTER X. A New Mission. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
The Great Montamor Case. By ALICE 1, DIEHL, Authoress of "The Knave of Hearts," CHAPTER X. A New Mission. Ronald Ilalldare had seen Gwendo len strolling towards the river, across the illuminated lawns of Lady Emil ia's grounds, the man he believed to be Lord Montamor, his supplanter, at her side. It was impossible, although he honestly believed Charles Dapnce to have been merely the Australian alias of his long-lost cousin Robert. not to be on tenterhooks as to Gwen dolen's opinion after she had had a private interview with the claimant. He hardly knew himself whether, un derlying his, as he considered it, un alterable opinion, that the bearded s;ranger was the real man and no other. there was not a lurking hope to be convinced of the contrary by a successiot of undeniable facts, such as Gwendolen's absolute repudiation of the supposed Robert. So when, as he was hovering about the tents, the pair must pass to return to the en closed lawn where the dancers were disporting themselves,...

STRIKES—AND STRIKES! [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
STRIKES-AND STRIKES! Our Sydney correepondent writss: The Labor oracles appear to be ra ther puzzled to find a weapon with which to assail the British Medical Association for "striking" against the Friendly Societies, which, of course, mainly consist of working men. There is nothing that the B.M.A. is doing that the unions have not done. Questions of dignity and professional standing apart, there is not much to choose between the two organisations But the "'Worker'" Jas discovered that the crucial difference is that whereas in an ordinary strike a large number of workers are assailing a small number of cmployers, in the case of the B.M.A. a comparatively small number of doctors are "up against" a very large number of workers. If the right or wrong of a dispute were in any way affected by the number of persons involved in it, there might be some cogency in the argument that one action is of great er enormity than the other. But, even as matter of fact, the statement is in correct. Th...

OUR SYDNEY LETTER. Meat is "Off." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
OUR SYDNEY LETTER. Meat is "Off." We are confronted just now with a prospect which must make the advo cates of "collective bargaining" and the other industrial quackery by which we have bound ourselves begin to seriously consider whether they have not "backed the wrong horse" with disastrous effect. Three quarters of a million people, in the city and suburbs, are threatened with total de privation of meat, an article which most of them consider to be as essen tial to health and strength as bread itself. The butchers' shopmen de manded higher wages and shorter hours than their employers were will ing to concede. Some of them bowed to the blast, and have been doing a roaring trade ever since, though it is only a matter of time when their sup plies also will be cut off. The others were declared ''black, " and the slaughtermen warned the carcase butchers they they would cease work if their employers continued to supply the obnoxious objectors. The carcase butchers refused to discriminat...

BUOYANCY OF THE MONEY MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
BUOYANCY OF THE MONEY MARKET. One favorable factor, especially for mulearrassed Australian Governments, is t writes our Sydney correspondent) tne unmistakable buoyaincy of the money market. It may be that it is only a temlporary mlovnement, e?lgill eered by the potentates of high lin tanc, to enable them to work off the accumaulation of securities with which of late they have been overloaded. But there is no doubt of Its reality. \ hen it is announced that the last New South W'ales loan, within a few weeks of its issue, has gone to a pre mium of £3, all doubts are silenced. Even those who are distrustful of lightning changes in the money market cannot gainsay the fact. In due course we may expect to find underwriters tumbling over one another to repeat so profitable an operation. From most of the current financial prelections, one would imagine that Germany had ab andoned her intention of borrowing an unprecedentedly large sum for military purposes; that France had postponed ner sma...
THE CLOSER SETTLEMENT MUDDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
THE CLOSER SETTLEMENT MUDDLE. Another and very long sitting of the Legislative Assembly was devoted last week to the task of impress ing on Ministers the real importance if putting the closer seelement office (n order. General disappointment was roiced at the treatment by the Gov ernment of the report condemning the administration of the branch. WVhile admittlng that closer settlement was not a purely commercial matter, and that the indirect benefits to be ex pected from it had to he borne in mind. members could find little. If anty, excuse for the mismanagement of the branch. Early -in the discus sion, however, it became apparent that dissentient Ministerialists int and about the Corner were not disposed to vote with the amendment propos ed by the Opposition leader, that the iands estimates bhe reduced by £1. practically as an expression of loss cof enfidence in the Government. To them the time seemed inopportune for another crisis. The new Minister of Lands delivered a long speech...
FIGHT WITH WIND PLUCK OF PASSENGER [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
FIIHT WITII WIND PLUCIC OF PASSENGER Probably the most exciting journey in the history of aerial touring was the cross-Channel flight made by Mr Sal met. "The Daily Mail" airman, who carried with him as passenger Mlrs Assheton-H-larbord, the balloonist (said the Paris correspondent of "The Daily Mail," December 19). Mr Salmet and his passenger started from Hendon on Saturday morning al most on the inspiration of the moment and under the most favorable weather conditions. Before they had gone far on the way to Folkestone they ran into a fog, which grew denser and denser and at last compelled them to inter rupt their journey at Folkestone for the night. They started off again across Channel at 11.30 yesterday with a south wind of about twenty-five miles an hour gradually increasing in strength. Then began a game of hide and seek in the clouds, to which more than a spice of danger was added. "I started !lying on a course laid for Boulogne at a height of 3000ft. so as to be above the cl...
LUNCHEON MYSTERY JUROR'S REFUSAL TO RETIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914

ENGLAND'S WINTER FLOWERS IN THE OPEN [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
EN .LAND'S WINTER FLOWXEIRS IN THE OPEN VWho said winter? The flattest contradiction ever of fered to the December almanac, at any rate for 165 years, is given in the bas ket of roses sent by a reader in Ryde, Isle of Wight (says "The Daily Mail," on December 21). Horace \Walpole boasted of a blossom on his nectarine tree on December 26, 174S; but his re cords all go by the board. We can S,-erwhelm him with bouquets, and give him also fruit for his flowers. A Hailsham (Sussex) garden carries to-day simultaneously roses, mistletoe and apple blossom, as strangely assor ted a trio of blossoms as ever gazed at one another out of doors across ian English garden. Decorations for one Christmas table, it is already arranged, are to consist of one huge bowl of real roses and one of "Christmas roses," or hellebore, with a vase of sprays of ripe raspberries in the middle. The roses of the Isle of Wight lead th way. There are still over sixty sorts of flowers out in a Ryde garden. Roses are out...
A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
A GREAT HISTORICAL WORK. By the publication of what has been happily described in the preface as "the birth certificates of a nation," the library com mittee of the Commonwealth Parlia ment has inaugurated the collected publication of the Historical Records of Australia. These "birth certifi cates" consist of a series of litho graphs of original documents connect ed with the foundation of settlement and the establishment of Government and civilisation in Australia. First we have the oaths of office taken by Cap tain Phillip with all the quaint archaic phraseology of the period. To readers of the twentieth century .he sug gestions of the dynastic and sectarian struggles through which the nation had recently passed, and wh.ch were still agitating men's minds, must seem strange as they are discl)ed in the curious special oaths of abjuration and abjurance Governor Phillip and his officers had to take.

"SPOTTED" TITLES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 20 February 1914
"'SPOTTED" TITLES. In 151'2 Warrnaminbool was suffering from bad times. The introduction of dairying had meant the employment of children to a greater extent than previously, and potato cultivation was languishing. Many men were out of work, and In order to improve their condition land on the Western Re serve was put under offer for closeP settlement at about £2S an acre, pay ment to extend over several years. The then Minister for Lands (Mr. Taverner) inspected the settlements, which were taken up by many poor men, but he wished them to hold the land under perpetual leases. Strong objection was mtad to this proposal, and linally the Minister promised that freehold leases should be granted. It was understood that 12 years' occu pancy constiduted the right to the property on rreehold terms, but set tlers are now discovering that under section 69 of the Closer Settlement Act they cannot sell, except to intending settlers like themselves. They con sider that this is a repudiation of th...
