In todays' Daily Telegraph; The issue of night-clubs was clearly one that was exercising the Telegraph at present, as the Government’s bill to amend the law over their regulation was presented in Parliament (pages 6 and 9). Another leader on the subject duly appeared on page 8, which praised this “wise and temperate war measure” while condemning the “swindlers and harpies” who are involved with them. And as if to show why such a measure was needed page 4 contains a report from the courts of a London night-club being closed after its activities meet with official displeasure.
Also in today’s paper:
- A reader sends in a poem, “On the Roll of Honour,” which is published on page 8
- The French accuse Bulgaria of stabbing Serbia in the back, whilst reports suggest Russia is preparing an attack on the former – page 9
- London is raided again by Zeppelins, and eight people are killed despite the official statement saying the material damage is small – page 9 - The Germans claim they are on the verge of an agreement to buy the Romanian wheat harvest, but an Italian correspondent in Paris claims Romania is preparing to join the Entente powers – page 9 - Another belated despatch from the Dardanelles on page 11, this one being seven weeks old
