BRITISH HONOUR MAINTAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
BRITISH HONOUR MAIN TAINED. During the week we have been in possession of the details leading up to 'the war. It is vei: evident that everything. was done by Sir Edward Grey which could be expected in the interests of peace-up to the last moment. Whilst dealing with ,the ambassadors courteously, as became an English gentleman in office, he very firmly laid down the principle of maintaining 'the honour of the British nation, in keeping to the terms of the compacts entered into with France and Belgium, though the latter extended as far back as I839. And it was not until Germany showed that she had 'no such regard for the treaty which she maintained in 1879, that the final word was given to take part in the conflict. But 'the admiration of the world goes out to.. British statestiien, who have shown such splendid and unwavering moral courage as to respect " the bit of paper " called a treaty.

He Could Stick Type. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
IHe Coeilh Stick Type. Erastnis Wia::a tells a good story o0 an experience he had with the Penn sylvania Legisantnre some years ago. Wimnan, who was:first a bootblack and -newsboy, and then a compositor and reporter in Toronto a good many yearsj ago, had made a combination between the Canadian Telegraph Company and the Western Union. He had been elected a director of the Western Union, a position that he still retains, and went to Harrisburg to help get some legisia tion through in the interest of teleg raphy. It was a close fight over the measure, in which the Western Union was inter ested. Wiman could not get before the House of Assembly the merits of his case. So late one afternoon he decided an article must appear in the next morning's paper in advocacy of the bill. The Patriot was the only morning pW] perin Harrisburg at the time. Wiman went to the editor and told him what he wanted, and offered liberal terms for the publioation. The proprietor told him the compositors had gone...
THE LION SLEEPS WITH ONE EYE SHUT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
THE LION SLEEPS WYITH ONE EYE SHUT. The plans of Germany had been well laid, and worked out with that thoroughness which is characteristic of her operations in the" world of science, - literature and manufacture ; and which had given an ever-increas ing hold of the world's markets and influenced' the world's thought. France was to have been humiliated first, then the Rusian intimidation ac complished; and, finally, the mistress ship of the seas was to have been wrested from 'Britain. A feverish haste was being.secretly conducted in the building of Dreadnoughts - and super-Dreadnoughts, and in the manu facture of all the latest discoverable munitions of warfare. And, when G;reat Britain ventured to ask ques tions, she was blandly bluffed by the statement that no warlike intervention was thought of. And our statesmen professed to be satisfied of the truth of the statement. But the rapid wtay in which the troops were mobilised and landed ,in France, and the prompt sailing of the Britis...
A Nuisance that can be Remedied. To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
A Nuisance that can be Remedied. To the Editor Shopkeepers along the main thorough fares have been subjected to large quantities of dust flying into their stocks during the sweeping of roads, more especially since the fine weather has set in, and the dust nuisance would be greatly minimised by the slight sprinkling of-roads with water just prior to the sweeping. Hoping our city en gineer will take this suggestion. I am, sir, " HALF CHOKED." You are requested to become a sub scribed to the "Citizen."

CONFIDENCE IN OUR LEADERS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
CONFIDENCE IN OUR LEADERS. Next to the confidence in Divine Providence, which comes from the championship of a righteous cause, we may well be satisfied in the choice of such officers as Lord Kitchener, Admiral Jellicoe, and Sir John French-tried and trusted warriors of commanding personality and great and successful experience. Allied with such generals as Joffre and Pau, they have shown a courage, smart ness, and .efficient tactical discern ment which seems almost incredible. The enemy's navy has been bottled up in Kiel harbour, though two hundred millions had been paid to make it a thing to be feared; the North Sea has been kept clear to the commerce of the world, though the enemy sowed it with mines; the enormous masses of artillery and in fantry, which seemed to come on in never-ending numbers, have been turned back and routed; prize mer chant ships have been taken, and supplies cut off from the ehemy to such an extent that even now capitula tion is hinted at. Whilst this has b...
Street Hoardings. The Editor "Hawthorn Citizen." [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
Street. Hoardings. The Editor " Hawthorn Citizen." Sir--As a subscriber to your jour nal, I with hundreds of residents of Hawthorn, Camberwell and Kew are most earnestly requesting our repre sentatives in both houses of the State Parliament to assist a measure now under the consideration of the State Legislator to give power to Councils to abolish hoardings, which are a detriment to property and a menace to the progress and beantification of all neighbourboods where they are. The land occupied by such struotures is principally owned by batiks or per sons who have no other interest in the district further than to recoup themselves with rents -from esuch souroes. If the opinion of the ratepayers was obtained on this matter, I am satisfied that one and all are against the present unjust treatment of still allowing their property to be ruined by the existing nuisance. A Ratepayer of Hawthorn.

THE THRASHING OF THE BULLY. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
THE THRASHING OF? THE / BULLY. There can be no doubt that, ever since Bismarck welded the Germanic States together, by his policy of "blood and iron," the land of the Kaiser has been responsible for the rapid extension of the military and naval taxation of the world. Again and .again, remonstrances ha\,e been made without effect ; and, whilst money could be borrowed, the awful waste has been going on, to the detri ment of the worker and taxpayer. Everyone knew that the time had-to come, at some time or other, when the intolerable leader in the trouble and the cause of the world's unrest had to be tackled; though but few could have conjectured it would have come with such awful suddenness. But as we write, the thrashing seems to be going on from all points of the com pass, and German militarism seems doomed for this generation at least.

The Mtatron's Mistakes A worthy lady who does not keep pace with the times was the heroine of a recent incident, the point of which will be ap parent to all bicycle riders. There had been a surgical operation in the house, which was happily over.. Some time after the doctor had gone, the mistress of the house discovered on a table what she took o be one of the surgical instruments, in .,dvertently left behind. She first carefully cleansed the liolished steel with a solution of carbolio acid and water, then rubbed it dry with a flannel cloth, wrapped it up and sent a servant with it to the doctor. With it she sent this note: " Dear Doctor,-When you were at the house yesterday you were so unfoltuaa " as to mislay one of your surgical instra. ments. I have taken good care of it, and return it by the messenger.-I am, very truly, etc." Before long the messenger came back with the same parcel, a little rumpled by opening, and with it brought this note from the doctor : " Dear Mrs --,--I t...

Monsters of the Past. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
Monsters of the Past. -4-;e--- ," (By WILLIAM NORTH.) "There were giants in those days,' giants so enormous and, according to present-day ideas, so grotesque that it is difficult to describe them. I was once examining a skeleton before me when a man and a wonman, with a couple of children, came along. They were clearly out for the day, though why tlhey should have elected to spend even a part of it at a museum,- through which they wandered aimlessly, was _difli cult to guess. Well. anyway, in course of time th-. little., party came to a stand for an -instant before that mighty skeleton. They could not quite ignore. it, .though naturally the children -were:: much more interested in the .cohtents of the basket their mnothei carried.

COST OF TWO WARS. REMARKABLE FIGURES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawthorn, Kew, Camberwell Citizen — 18 September 1914
COST OF TWO WARS. - - REMARKABLE FIGURES. Interesting in these days of war are the figures that the Japanese Government has just given out in answer to the reqest of.two depu ties in Parliament. They are the first published statietics on Japan's last two wars, those with China and with Russia. The first lasted 283 days, from August 1st, 1894 to May 10th, 1895. The total ex pense, was in round numbers £3,355,000. The ships of war had a total tonnage of 63,000, and the cost per ton per day was a little over two shillings. The war with lRussia lasted 614 days, from Februaiy 10th, 1904, to October 16th, 1905, and the cost was £22,515,000. The naval ves sels had a total tonnage of 283,100 and the cost per day per ton was about ls. 2d. The great difference in the cost of operation of naval vessels comes from the change in types. Big battleships are not now so expensive to keep in ser vice.
