The National Anthem. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 4 July 1902
The National Anthem. The English National Anthem of to day was first publicly heard in 1746, after the defeat of Prince Charles, at Culloden. It was originally a Jacobite song, which it was daegerous to sing in hearing of tbe authorities, for the Kiug meaut then was ' the King over the water,' a fact which may be traced iu the words, ' send him victorious, though, nowadays, that is seldom remembered. The three verses of '? God Save the King ' we now sing are the genuine Jacobean song, but to them were added six others, strictly Hanoverian and Whiggish, and utterly devoid of literary merit.

The Unemployed. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Argus — 4 July 1902
Tiie U neiiiy »loy e«I. — n — The unemployed trou'ole is increasing in severity, and the Government are almost at their wits' end to solve the difficulty. In orde r to ' save the face ' of the Minister for Works, they have decided to pay the men 7s a day. This means that thvey will have to be at least one week i.^lle for every week that they are employed, for there is not money enough to keep them all going at so liberal a v/age. It would be more, humane, lp,ss demoralising, ujore economical to give them I constant work at 3s 6d per day. This co'jrse, moreover, w ould tend to end ! fr.ue difficulty, becau se as soon as they could get better wa-ges elsewhere they would gladly seiz'e the opportunity, j The 7s a day idea will attract so many men that it will break down by its own weight. Tfjis consummation is daily drawing uiearer, and it is, perhaps, the best thing that could happen.

Cowra-Gregra Light Line. The carrying out of the survey of the above still goes on elowly but surely. Surveyor Parrott, we hear, is about to remove his camp to somewhere in the vicinity of Messrs. Bassett and Craven Bros, properties. The main factor in causing the delay experienced has been scarcity of water for drinking purposes, it is supposed, and this explanation appears only reasonable under existing . circumstances. So far the operations of the survey party have extended to a considerable distauce on tbe Cano- j wiodra side of Barragan.
