Sparks from the Anvil — ? w ?

WAR PROFITS. PROBABLE HEAVY TAX. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 9 May 1916

WAR PROFITS. PROBABLE HEAVY TAX. During th? coming financial year a very large amount will have to be found by the Federal Ministry to finance the war. To meet this in part, it is under stood to be the intention of .the Ministry to follow the home ex ample of imposing a tax on war profits. In certain cases consider able profits have undoubtedly ac crued through the war, and the intention is said to be to con fine the operation of tax to pro fits directly attributable to trans actions consequent upon war re quirements, or to causes associa ted with the war. A very heavy tax is contemplated. It is not improbable that an average will be struck of the profits realis ed for each of three years pre- , ceding the war, and that, after providing for an allowance of ten per cent, on the 'capital in vested and deducting the amount of average profits from the pro fits of the war year, the excess profit will be taxed at the rate of 25 per cent. The question will be considered by the Labor Cau cu...

LATEST WAR NEWS. Countess Markiewicq has been sentenced to death. The sentence, however, was commuted to im prisonment for life. It is authoritatively known that . the Kaiser, in conversation with the United States Ambassador at Berlin, adopted a most intimate attitude. He declared that it was Germany's intention to meet the American wishes regarding sub marines. He suggested a'so that President Wilson should sound the Allied nations regarding peace. It is also said that it is believed the Kaiser expressed anxiety for the United States to take tha initiative in sounding the Allies on the question of peaca. The London 'Daily Mail's' cor respondent at Washington says that President Wilson will pro bably informally inquire from Berlin whether the peace refer ences in the German Note mean that Germany desires his servi ces as mediator; A London Marconi states that the aeroplane signal receiving ap paratus has been' strengthened.

WHAT TO DO WITH VODKA. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 9 May 1916

WHAT TO DO WITH VODKA. The Russian Government, as a result of the prohibition of the, sale of vodka, has on hand 260, 000,000 gallons of that liquor. Va rious uses are proposed for it. One invahlor has devised a pro cess for converting the liquor in to indiarubber. Others, says the 'Public Ledger,' have found it of utility as a fuel oil for motor cars. The Finance Minister is in favor of destroying it altogether, lest the storage of so great an amount prove a temptation to some impoverished administration in future to profit by the mono poly at the expense of the souls and bodies of the people. The net profit to the State from the sale of vodka in a single year has risen as high as £58,000,000 at least. The vodka bottle had become a household god amongst the peasants, and was the most conspicuous furniture of every parish feast. The reason was not far to seek. It contained from 40 tto 57 per cent, of alcohol distilled from potatoes or rye. Its autograph was writ large in an enfeeble...

VERDUN. GERMANY ENTERS A TRAP. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 9 May 1916

VERDUN. * '? ' GERMANY ENTERS A TRAP. A writer in a New York paper says :— 'In attacking Verdun Ger many entered a trap. It matters not that the trap was of her own making. It was just as truly a trap as if the Allies had made and baited it. To prove .Iher worth Germany attacked the strongest poisition . of the French line. She must keep on until Verdun falls ; she dare not stop now. To do so would be to admit to those whom she not only wishes to impress but whom she must impress, that she is no longer capable of the task she has set out to accom plish. At this stage of the war game such an admission would be fatal. As things stood before Ver dun, Germany/ had to convince a good number of people that she was the Jess Willard of the iron ring. It was also necessary to gain a victory that would startle the world. Therefore Germany in her pride aimed at the strongest line of the French defence. At the time of writing it looks as though Fr.'nic^1 will soon be in a position to hit the bi...

OLD GOLD FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 9 May 1916

OLD GOLD FIELDS. With regard to the declared intention of the Government to , assist in opening up old gold fields in the State which have for various reasons been aban doned, a 'Review' representative had an interview with Mr. G. R. Williams. Mining Warden, on the subject during his visit to Braid wood last week. This gentleman thought that there was scope for Government assistance in this district, and suggested that in lo calities where mines had been abandoned local committees should go into the matter and furnish all the available details regard ing former operations. This in formation, he said, was very ne cessary to enable the Depart ment to reach a decision. We trust that the matter will be ' warmly taken up in the mining centres of this district. Many reefs have been abandoned in the past through lack of capital to de velop them which, with tlWe more, modern methods of treatment now in vogue, would probably pay handsomely to re - open. There are other reefs, too, which have...

BAB LUCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Review and District Advocate — 9 May 1916

BAD LUCK. General regret was expressed in town on Saturday when it be came known that Mr. T. M. Royds's racehorse Cumber had come to grief in the Hurdle Race at Randwick that day. Many lo cal punters were on him. For tunately Cumber sustained no in jury from the fall beyond a few scratches. It appears he ran right into the ttiurdle, making no attempt to jump it. St. Medoc was in front of him when near ing the obstacle, and the jockey pulled his head round to steer another course. It is thought that this act took Cumber's at tention off the hurdle, with the result that he did not see the obstacle at all. At any rate, he never did such a thing before. R© hajs earned the reputation of heing an absolutely safe jumper. Cumber is engaged in the hur dle race at Moorefield on Satur day next. Mrs. Abel has received a cable from her husband, Lieutenant Abel, who is 'somewhere in France,' announcing that he is well, and that he has been pro moted to the rank of captain. Congratulations, Stan. ...
