HUMANE EXECUTIONS. THE LETHAL CHAMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 6 May 1924

HUMANE EXECUTIONS. I THE LETHAL CHAMBER. j Hanging is a relic , of barbaric days. If, for the good of the com munity, Ekman must be 'executed, the act should be performed without vin dictivcness. The lethal chamber is suggested by many who have studied the subject, and has been adopted in Nevada, U.S.A. The first execution took place re cently when a Chinaman, who had murdered a countryman, paid the last penalty. The lethal chamber is a small, air tight building, containing two win dows, through which the pregsmen, officials and medical men watch the process. The victim was bound hand and foot to a heavy metal cot, and the door was then locked and hermeti cally scaled. In an adjoining room the gas was stored, and attached were three valves, but' only one could send the gas into the death chamber. Each warder turned 011 a tap re duced by hydro-cyanic acid, which is declared to be the quickest and dead liest known. A single short breath solidifies the lungs and coagulates the blood, s...

ST. JOHN'S TENNIS CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 6 May 1924

cST. JOHN'S TENNIS CLUB. On Saturday afternoon, in the pre sence of about 200 people, the Mayor of Moss Vale. (Mr. E. B. Hawkins) officially declared open for play the ] two very fine tennis courts which were put down in the rectory j grounds, Moss Vale. Before calling upon the Mayor td perform this ceremony, the president of the club (Mr. A. E. Brown) said he was pleased to welcome so many to the grounds to witness what he regarded as a very important func tion. He was glad to have the Mayor to open the courts, as it was as much a citizens' movement as a tennis players'. He hoped it would be a recruiting ground for many young players, and the fee was fixed so that it would not be prohibitive to anyone desiring to take up the game He also wanted it made clear that while the court? were in the rectory grounds it was not altogether a church club, and they already had members from every church in Moss up members. The courts cost £105, but would have been considerably more but for the s...

The Editor, The Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 6 May 1924

The Editor, The Mail. I Sir, — Your correspondent, 'Only One of the Public,' takes an entirely wrong view of the soldiers' action in holding a smoke concert on Anzac Night. Having paid their tribute to dfad comrades, what wrong is there ui iuccuiig wigciucr vu uuk. over tne things the dead have done and to meet the men who helped them to do them? We need not hang our heads in sorrow for those who died in defence of our liberties. They were not the kind who would wish to make the world more gloomy be cause they are not here to share in their comrades' reunions. Let me re-' commend to O.O.O.T.P. the remarks of Rev. Morris Yates with reference to that cartoon of the Diggers' re union — that is the spirit of the An zacs. There is not much of that spirit in O.O.O.T.P.'s references to the Diggers. Yours, etc., ANOTHER OF THE PUBLIC.

The Editor. The Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 6 May 1924

The Editor. The Mail. I Sir, — It is all very well for those who are paid for holidays to .want three or four a week, but what about the casual workers who lose pay for every day of idleness? There are too many public holidays, and it is time we had a Government with enough harkhnno 4n rnfnco tn *-:*** nM., more. Anzac Day could be more ap propriately celebrated on the nearest Sunday to the famous 25th, but if that is not desired, we could cut out one of the useless birthday holidays and give a working man a chance to earn enough to keep his family de cently. Yours, etc., CASUAL WORKER.

A FOOTBALL GROUND FOR BOWRAL. The Editor, The Mail. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 6 May 1924

A FOOTBALL GROUND FOR BOWRAL. The Editor, The Mail. Sir, — The refusal of the Berrima Districjt Football League to confirm the decision of the previous meeting to play finals at Bowral should cause some of our people to wake up. Un less we can give the league as good a ground as other towns can, we have no right to expect them to play here. Thp mf-n whfl /fount/* fhnn*.Eo1vne to the game are entitled to the best con ditions that can be had, and should not be asked to play on unsuitable grounds if better can be got. It means a good deal to the business of a town to have good sports grounds. The young folk are mostly interested in sport, and they are good spenders. The more sport there is in a town the more money goes into the tills of the business people. It iB, therefore, obvioufc that it is to the interests of the business people to put up enough money to provide Bowral with a first-class sports ground, so that hundreds of outsiders may be attracted to our town. This would be good ...
