TELEPHONE LINES. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 14 January 1914
TELEPHONE LINES. Mr. Agar T~ynno, the Postmaster General, is endeavouring to reduce the cost of constructing telephone lines-a cost which is said to be very excessive. WVhether it is, or is not ex cessive, I do not know, but the met hods of the Department are slightlv erratic. To a working journalist r. 'phone is a necessity. For family rea sons I have to live on a rise a little further from the G.P.O. than I should choose if I had only myself to consider. Whien asked about the transfer of my 'phone the officials told me the cost would be £20 .Their notion was thait in order to carry a line across an old time three chain road some 60-year old rotted telegraph posts would have to be removed, and they pleasantly suggested that I should defray the whole cost of improving that part ,f the system within six miles of the city. After my explaining my view of the position with perfect frankness, they modified their demand. The 'phone is installed, and the account which came this morning is ...
NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 14 January 1914
NOiRTHERN TERRITORY. Some silly articles are being pub lished in certain papers about the conduct of officials in the Northern Territory. It is suggested that they spend most of their time drinking and playing billiards. Just one of those officials I know intimately, and he is a man whoseo word you can take. He tells mo that the officials in the Territory do not break either their backs or their hearts with lihard work. but they do what in such a clim ate is a very fair stroke. The whole social system is very funny. The other day I went to the smartest editor in Australia, and told him of certain rascalities which affecot the sappiness of hundreds of people in the Northern Territory. He said, "COan't touch it old man, would like to as well as you would. but.there might be a libel action. We can't afford to piteh into any but State concerns. My di rectors are muffing their own husi ness shockingly, and for ever telling me to teach the heads of departments how to suck eggs." That puts...
