WORK FOR UNEMPLOYED iSome 10o mien who had been em ployed on.the trans-Australian rail way until the cessation of work, on the eve of Chris.mas, waited at the offices at the trans-Australian line depot, Wednessday,wilth the object of drawing the attention of ,?he Federal Minister for Public Works to the urgent necessity of providing them with employment. Mr. M. Costello, the organiser of 'the A.W.U., only had an ouportunity of saying a few words in support of three requests, the granting of which would bring a cert-ain measure of relief for the men. The first was that a second ballast n:i should be opened at the 205-Mile, to carry on simultaneous lv with the one operating at the 182-Mile. This proposal, according to the Supeirvising Engineer(Mr. J. Darby-. shire) was not practicable, inas much as che department had not sufficent waggons to do ballasting from two.. pits, and in t.he second nlace, every waggon withdrawn from the 128-Mile would throw a man out of employment. .Mr. Coste...

A RETURNED SOLDIER'S TREATTREATMENT To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 16 January 1917
A RETURNED SOLDIER'S TREAT- TREATMENT To the Editor. Sir,—As one who witnessed the inception of the trouble that occur- red on the Trotting Ground on Wed- nesday evening, and which resulted in a returned soldier named Wilfrid Schofield being arrested and convey- ed to the Boulder police station, I ask for permission, in the interest of the public generally, for space in your columns to give my views of the case, for if ever a matter called aloud for a full and searching inves- tigation by the higher police author- ities, it is this time. I have lived in many parts of Australia and have witnessed many arrests, but I have never seen one affected in such a cowardly and brutal manner as that of Schofield, who, by the way, is a man of diminutive stature, and is handicapped by having to use an artificial leg. I hold no brief for disorderly soldiers, neither can I be accused of belonging to the hood- lum class which Sergeant Fee told the bench followed them, but am a lover of fair play, wh...

Fairbairn, who has been acti mng as one of the Australian Red iross Commissioners ini CLoon , stated that the commissioners were in touch with' over. 1000 bospitals 1i I England. Fortunately, many of the I wbunds received by the Australians last summer were liht in character and a:ready many men had rpturned to the front. It Would appear to be' undoubted that the Germans deliver Red Cross parcels safely to prison= ere. When he left England, there were nearly 1000 Australian prisdn ers in German'y, and about 90 ;in; Constantinople.: As-far ath e dcould " learn, Australian prisoners were being well treated 'by the Tiutks:.

GERMAN ESCAPEES RE-CAPTURED Sydney, Jan. 18. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917
BERMAN ESCAPEES RE-CAPTURED Sydney, Jan. 18. -Two Germans George Edward Knoff (22) and Iarl Kruse (33), c a caped on Tuesday. They were recaptured at Hornsby last night, just when the bold bid for free dom seemed about to succeed. . Half an hour before the Brisbane mail was due at Hornsby, a well dressed man, accompanied by what appeared to be a stylishly dressed woman, arrived at the railway sta-i tion, and asked for two berths on the Brisbane express. The strong German accent of the "husband" roused the suspicions of the ticket- , seller, who advised the police, ;, meanwhile engaging the attention " of the couple. Constable Ander- Y son, who arrived on the scene, was dubious as to the advisability of . taking action, particularly in view of the -indignation displayed by the ;ai man. As the "woman" said nothing at all, Anderson decided to pursue'' the matter fuhrther, and catching , hold of the gossamer surrounding a s Panama hat. which the "wife" was ,'} wearing, he gave it a sudd...
