So poor was be at tbe time that he had to- -drew himself up to -oct as hit own models for this great composition— hence, doubtless, the similarity of feature observ able in nearly all the characters,, the.' v«ry masculine lineaments of. the fiddler's wife, and the young-old look of -the boy who is imitating the fiddler on the iatehen bellows.

ANOTHER JUDGE AND LAW REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 1 June 1912

ANOTHER JUDGE AND LAW REFORM. The d slay in the delivery of several Supreme - Court judgments has occasioned the cry fa r another Judge. Whether the demand is\ a legal mode of emphasising a complaint i'litherto fruitless, or is an ex pression of a genuine want, how is the poor lay pul'hc to say without the aid. of another Parliamentary commission to en quire into ai'i the ramifications of the complex subject? Unfortunately, the Ministry have received their orders to tighten the picrsestrings, and incidentally appoint no moce commissions; this, too, from the authority which demands an ad ditional Judge, the best available, regard less of cost or pension. Of course, the Premier -could do^as the British Prime Mi nister occasionally does — select two or three Cabinet Ministers to act as a com mittee to investigate the grievance and recommend a remedy. A little additional practical, responsible work would not hurt our portfolioists. Apart from this side play, there appears to be a prima ...

The institution is the old egt bank in Australasia, having been founded in 1820. It has weathered more than one severe financial storm, and now stands out as one of the most imposing banks, in the Empire, with deposits at £35458,354, and advances at £26,147,854. ,,It shows figures which not only appeal to the imagination ' but give an idea of the extent o£ the business of the bank.

In the same period advances have expanded from £20,501,443 to £26,147,854, so that the two $ides of .the business have kept fairly close one to the other: The iiquid assets, com-. {Hieing, cash, public securities, and bills receivable, in the meantime have only changed from £18,990,204 to £18,709,033, j3o t...

AMALGAMATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 1 June 1912

AMALGAMATIONS. Word has reached Adelaide from cer 'tain inspired quarters that ' the idea of carrying through lan amalgamation of Broken Hill _ interests has been revived. . fioihe- ' little time since Mr. * Asher pounced 4a the scheme being quickly developed to unite three if not four big concerns.' Al though he got what -is. so usual with Ade laide shareholders who go to Melbourne f'tb represent sound grievances, very little [politeness, still he did sound service. He fllrtairied from the board of the Broken Hill South Company a positive assurance that they -would not amalgamate the com pany with any other company at Broken HQL It might have been thought that this ?would have settled the question, but now thfe talk is that the Xorth, South, and British, with, in all probability, the Amalgamated Zincs thrown in, to make weight, are .to be the subject of a merger. On the broad ground the question can be asked- why should these companies be put into, one company. They are a long dis ...

THE CHAPMAN-ALEXANDER MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 1 June 1912

THE CHAPMAX-ALEXAXDER AHSS1OX. ?: For some reason which, perhaps, it were hard to define, the attendances at the men's midday ,; service have not reached anything like the number that crowded the Town Hall each day on the previous visit of these missioned. Dr. Chapman is as fluent and forcible, pointed and pierc ing, as he -was before — in fact, we could hardly imagine him ever being dull or diffuse — but the men of the city, the young men especially, , have not seemingly been so eager to hear his message. The eren ing services in the \Eshibition Building have been -crpwded eyerv ,tune, and there is nothing tfl| e*aplaiii about the attend ance of lirea'atffle Sunday afternoon ser vices. It is y.orth going just to hear those three or four thousand men sing, with a vigor such as surely some of them have not done since they dangled their legs from the high and hard Sunday school 6eats in the days of long ago.

"THE BLUE BIRD." The New Fairy Play. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 1 June 1912

'THE. BLUE BIRD.' The New Faiiy Play. [ Maeterlinck's delightful fairy playf 'The Bine Bird,' which called forth a paen of praise from all the critics when first jpre sented at .the Haymarket Theatre, Lon don, a. couple of years ago, is at last to be witnessed by-. Adelaideans.. ? The opportu nity is likely to result in the Theatre Royal, being crowded during the brief sea son ' which is 'to ? commence on Saturday next. 'The Blue Birdj'' ?according to an old legend, stands' for happiness, and it is the pursuit of tftis by mankind that forms the basis of a theme brilliantly and exqui sitely treated* in allegory' by the famous Belgian poet and dramatist.

ARBITRATION A NATIONAL POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 1 June 1912

ARBITRATION' A NATIONAL POLICY. The adoption by/ the Federal Liberal Union of the principle of industrial arbi tration with a judically circumscribed pre ference to trades unionists, signifies that it must be recognised . as an accepted national policy as fixed as the white Aus tralia- or the old-age pension. As be tween the Labour and Liberal parties the ] only question remaining concerns the J mode of rendering arbitration effective. The former asks for plenary power to the Commonwealth Court; the latter prefers the erection of the Interstate Commission charged to review State awards and pre vent interstate competition or sweating. Each method has its advantages and dis advantages. The Labour referenda went beyond the necessities of effective arbitra tion, and practically asked the people to sign a blank cheque in favour of the Com monwealth Parliament, to be paid by the States. No wonder the people declined. Probably the next referenda will come nearer t'he point upon which both ...
