What Martial Law Means. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 5 June 1914
WhatMartial Law Means. :—~ Tfao great Duks of Wellington voiced the clue .to what happened in South Africa when ho said : "Martial law means no law at all, but the will of the goneral till the ordinary law can be either establish ed or restored." Even in times of peace all civilians are in Some senses subject to mili tary law, inasmuch as for illegiti mate sale or wear of Army uni forms or medals they could be pro ceeded against, to t>ny* nothing of their obligations under the Army Billeting Act. But under strict martial law a commander may order a curfew bell to ring, after which hour any in habitant found with a light in his house or iii the streets would be liable to arrest.

THE FARM. : - 4- ' ' ENGINES ON. THE FARM. " It. will be very interesting if sta tistics could be obtained showing how engines have entered into farm-' ing and grazing operations. . The "Scientific American" recently stated that as . far as the United States are.concerned, in 1911 three companies alone made upwards of 100,000 engines ranging in size from I 2 to 15 'h.p.

As nearly as can be (letermihnd there are '750 manufacturers of gaso line and oil- engines" in the United States,\ and fully 500 of these make a specialty of farm engines. .'Their output must be at least half a' mil lion engines a year.

! INSURING MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS. I I . • i Owing to the large number of ac-. I cidents occurring every year to moun tain climbers and tourists in the Alps, several Swiss insurance com panies have established an accident policy for the benefit of persons un dertaking these mountain excursions. For a premium of sixpence a season, certain Alpine clubs offer insurance to their members to the amount of about £4 10s., with mcdical care, etc., included. The amount of the premium is less where groups of five i or ten persons are insured together. There is also an insurance policj is-, sued for the winter season against ski and bobsleigh accidents in the Alps. 1931.

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not identity ourselves with, the opinions expressed by correspondents ir» this column, nor will we in any way hold ourselves responsible for same.] FIFE AND DRUM BAND. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—With regard to the drum and fife band I see no reason why a band of upwards of twenty members should have broken down. As it is winter time and the evenings are long, I think it would be advisable to again siart the band going. The instruments are still at hand; and, as it is a military band, a practice could be so arranged that it would fall on a parade night, so as to avoid bringing members out twice a week. The fifers got on very well under Bandmaster Smith, and if he would again take the position I think a fair percentage of the members would come together to have a musical even ing ; but as it is still a young band, too much cannot be expected from them.. Hoping this will find a space in your columns. I am, eic. ONE INTERESTED.
