THREATENED TRAMWAY STRIKE Perth, Nov. 30. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
THREAIENED 1TAMWAY STRIKE Perth, Nov. 30. The Commissioner for Railways, Mr. Short, stated to-day that the statement that a strike in the tram service had been decided on had ' been made public no doubt, with the evident intention of frightening the public, and so inducing them -to bring pressure upon him .as Com missioner to accede to the demands of the Tramway Union. Continu ing, he raid that when the agree ment recently expired, the Tram- I way Union asked for a fresh agree ment, but he replied that he could not grant it., and suggested that the agreement be continued until the end of the war, when justice could be done to the claims put forward.

NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION Melbourne, Nov. 30. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
NHO- ONFIDEICE MOTION' I 1 Melbourne. Nov. 30. The Prime Minister, in the House of Representatives to-day, resumed the debate on the amendment mov ed by Mr. Tudor regarding the regulations relating to the referen dum ballots. He said that the at tack was made on a pretext. It turned on a regulation which was I said to be issued. No regulation of any such kind was ever issued. He would not refer to anything that occurred at an Executive Council meeting. Such references were most unwise. They could only be made ly a disclosure by an Executive Councillor, which disclosure was wrong. Mr. Mathews : Even if there were oorruption? The Prime Minister said he would make no further references to the Executive Council either in Mel-! bourne or in Sydney. He would say again that such regulations as the amendment said were issued were not issued. The sole reason for the amendment was that some people wanted his (Mr. Hughes') head on a charger.

MR. HUGHES' POLICY Melbourne, Nov. 30. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
SMR. HUGHES' POLICY Melbourne, Nov. .30. Senator Millen oontinued tthe de bate in the Senate to-day on the Ministerial statement.. He had been struck, he said, by the omissions from it. Nothing had been said as to the reasons for the Ministerial changes, and there had been no =e ference to the referendum other than that in regard to recruiting. It was not said that it was intended to proceed with legislation other than war legislation. Australia was confronted with a serious industrial position, but nothing had been said about it. The break up of the late Ministry had commenced with the resignations of Mr. Higgs and Senators Gardiner and Russell. He thought those gnen were justi fied in their action, and could havo taken no other course. A most im portant regulation had been sent, to the Executive Council before it had been approved in the Cabinet. The action taken by the Prime Minister was arbitrary and extraordinary, and the Ministers who accepted it could only do so at the cost d...
IF FOOD DISAGREES DRINK HOT WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
IF FOOD DISAGREES DRINK ROT WATER. When food lies like lead in the stomach a4 d you have that uncom fortable, distended feeling, it is be cause: of insufficient blood supply to the stomach, combined with ecid and alnd food fermentation. In such cases try. the plan now followed in many hospitals and advised by eminent specialists of taking half a feappoonful of bisurated magnesia in half a glass of water as hot as you can comfortably drink it. The hot water draws the blood to ·he stomach, and tle biasurated mag nesia, as any physiciain or chemist can tell you instantly neutralises the acid and stops the' food fer mentation. This this simple plan and you will be astonished at the immediate feeling of relief and comfort that always follows the res toration of the normal process of digesiion. Soldiers at the front and travellers who are, frequently obliged to take hasty meals poorly prepared should always take two or three five-grain tables cf bisurated magnesia after meals to prevent f...
