SCORED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
SCORED. Three small clothiers' shops stood in a line by the markets. The man in the shop on the right side decorated his window with a huge bill: "Great .Sale of Fire Salvage Stock." The man on the left side put out a counter-plaeard: '' Great bale of Bankruptc, Stock." The man with the middle shop won dered what he could do, as fire and bankruptcy had been annexed by brs ris als to right and left of him. After much thought he put up a hand pointing to his doorway, and a -huge. placard inscribed: "Main Entrance."
SOME TOASTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
SOME TOASTS. A rather cynical toast runs thus: "Woman-she requirep no eulogy; she speaks for herself." A gallant young man, in the same fes. A circumstances, referred to one mew '^r of the sex he eulogised as "a delect table dear, so sweet that honey would. blush in her presence and molasses "'d appalled." A writer of comedies was giving a banquet in honour of,. his latest work, ,.t which a jovial guest gave the toast, ' Phe author's very good health!. May live to be as old as his jokes."' At anothef gathering were -toasted "The Bench and the Burl If it were not for the bar, there would be little use for the bench."

AMHICULTURAL AND PASTORAL NOTES FOR THE MAN ON THE LAND. These Notes are lasued every week. .under the personal supervision of the Hon. W. G. Ashford; M.L.A.. Minister of Agriculture. N.S.W., and are based mainly on the experience of the Department. No. 206. - ..DAIRYING. -TEE BUTTER INDUSTRY. Its Present Position. Notwithatanding that the war has so distinctly enhanced prices as to allay in part the anxiety of a year ago about the fate of second quality butter, the Dairy Expert of the Department of Agricul ture hints broadly in a current article that the present position is really one for even greater concern than ever on the part of producers. The War and After. "Thanks to almost famine prices on the British market for butter, as a result of the great European war, we do not hear very much about the ques tions so repeatedly discussed last year," he writes, but "when the war ends, I think It will be found that mar garine will have captured- a great sec tion of the community who wer...
THE PENITENTIARY. LONG BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
THE PENITENTIARY. LONG BAY. (By V.J.) It is now nine months since the iy moval of prisoners from Darligboas&t Gaol to Long Bay Penitentiary markaid a step upward in the way of prison re form in this ?state and strrel up ton siderable punlic intcrest. LJo.og eoaa:e the Penitentiary was avail-i-io for oc cupation the hew lamsftiea'ion system for which it is ad.'n:.il-ly plau.c.e was carefully matured in the aind of Mr. M'Cauley, the ';ompt rull ?r tiesieral, a scheme that it was inpod.a.tJl3 to it. troduce at DarJiogoant iai aant of space. The term Penitentiary is more applicable to the new lines, upon which this institution " is conducted, although there is no relaxation of necessary vigi lance and discipline. There is a great distinction between the old and new standpoints in the treatment of criminals on the part of those in authority. Formerly it was the custom to punish the offender with merciless vindictiveness in t . belies that, when released, the recollection of his p...
District News. MAJURA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
District News. MAJURA. The social in aid of the Belgian Fund on Friday night last was a de- cided success both socially and finan- cially, although the attendance was not what might be expected, it was one of the most enjoyable functions that has yet taken place in the hall. Mr. T. Reid of Duntroon acted as M.C. and gave every satisfaction. The music was supplied by Mr. T. Gallagher, Burbong and Miss Freda McIntosh and was all that could be desired. Extras were contributed by Misses F. Southwell, F. Williams, R. Cartwright, and Miss Una South- well while the Misses Maire and Gil- lies danced the sailor's hornpipe. Mr. Douglas, Canberra, gave an admirable recitation. Messrs. T. W. Harman, and J. J. Darmody, as joint hon. secretaries, are deserving of special mention for the excellent way they carried out their duties as it was upon their shoulders most of the work fell. The catering was partly done by local ladies and partly by a Sydney firm and was greatly appre- ciated by all. Mr. ...

Queanbeyan River Dam.

The wall of the proposed dam was to be 1ooft. high from bed- rock to crest and about 56oft. long, 1o9ft. thick at base, and about 48ft. about half way up.

Federal Capital Lake. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
Federal Capital Lake. Mr. W. B. Griffin, designer of the Federal Capital city, in a letter to the Commonwealth Public Works Committee's report on the question of the construction of a main sewer for the city of Canberra, inferentially indicated a huge scheme for a moun- tain lake. Mr. Griffin indicated that he had in mind the construction of a moun- tain lake of immense size at a cer- tain stage of the city's growth by spending a million pounds. Advan- tage could be taken of a providen- tially natural opportunity to secure a mountain lake. This lake would extend 5o miles through rugged ground and mountain scenery, mak- ing available directly by steamers from the heart of the capital several hundred miles of deep-water fron- tage, and an infinitude of water-view sites. The chairman of the Works Com- mittee, Mr. Riley, H.H.R., stated that the Federal Capital designer had asked permission to add his letter to his report. The committee took no responsibility for it in any way. Mr. Archi...
Well-grown Apples. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
Well-grown Apples. There are now on view in A. M. Fallick & Sons window, some fine apples grown by Mr. W. Beatty, of Red Hill, Googongs. The heaviest oft hem weighs 17 ounces. While &nbsp; not as large as in former seasons, the specimens are excellent consider- ing the dry spell experienced. On Sunday evening a young man named Lowe met with a shocking accident while driving to Duntroon, being thrown from his sulky and dragged some distance. He received severe injuries to the head and now lies in the hospital in a very critical condition. Good entries have been received for the Presbyterian flower show tomorrow. Do not fail to attend. The official opening is at three o'clock to-morrow afternoon. &nbsp;
THE Queanbeyan Age, TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 1915. CURRENT TOPICS. DOES IT PAY? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 1915. CURRENT TOPICS. DOES IT PAY? Does it pay to exploit pro- ducers in the country for the fancied benefit of clamorous dwellers inithe cities? The de- cadent Romans pursued this policy. In order to provide bread and circus for the unruly "plebs" of the city, they ground down the dwellers in the coun- try until the land went out of cultivation, and an enervated population became an easy prey to the Huns and Goths. With a great flourish of trumpets, Mr. E. R. Hall, the State At- torney-General; is declaring that the wheat "grab," for which he was mainly respon- sible, has paid handsomely, for he will have a surplus of &nbsp; £17,000 when all is over, and the accounts are squared up. Experts declare that the figures adduced by Mr. Hall will not bear examination. Assuredly they will not, if the Neces- sary Commnodities Commis- sion fulfils the statutory obliga- tion laid upon it, and declare the "fair market value" of &nbsp; &nbsp; the grain...
THE "NATIONALISED INDUSTRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
THE "NATIONALISED INDUSTRIES. Do not similar considerations apply to the numerous indus- trial undertakings which have been "nationalised" during the term of office of the present Government ? It is claimed that they show a profit, and this is held to be sufficient to silence all criticism. But who could not show a favorable balance sheet if he had behind him the money, the credit, and the enor- mous influence of the Govern- ment ? The fact that, even with these advantages, some of these undertakings cannot, by any means be tortured into showing anything but loss, seems to be indubitable evidence of inepti- tude almost incredible. But the issue of profit or loss is ut- terly and egregiously beside the question- Was this the pur- pose for which Government is entrusted with its enormous powers ? Fairminded men want information on that point, and nothing else will satisfy them.
IS THERE NOT MALVERSATION? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
IS THERE NOT MALVER- &nbsp; SATION ? When Ministers who are en- trusted with enormous powers, in order that they may look after the public interests of the people, abuse those powers for any other purpose, is not that malversation ? For what pur- pose is the Government entrus- ted with the power of taxing ? Is it in order that they may enter into competition with the taxpayer, to his possible or probable ruin ? These are queries which must be honestly answered before it can be deter- mined whether this administra- tive freak or that was profitable. But we shall have to wait a long time for a candid and sat- isfactory answer.
THE REAL "CRUX." [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
THE REAL "CRUX." What a purblind statesman- ship that must be which ignores the blow to public confidence administered by the "grab," &nbsp; the violation of the ordinary ethics of "meum "and "tuum," even in cases in which the ex- ercise of the right of "eminent domain " is justified by the cir- cumstances, and which in a democratic country imitates the autocratic excess of Kaiserism! What is a few thousand pounds here or there, even supposing the money had been really gained in comparison with vital issues of this kind ? If monetary gain is a justification, who is entitled to blame the man who brings off a successful fraud or "steal "? If the bank- book is to decide the question, then considerations of right and wrong, of sound policy, or of flashy unsoundness, would be finally ruled out of court. The real " crux " of the matter is not whether a balance can be shown, but whether the action which produced it was really called for in the public interests, and whether it was c...
From the Front. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
From the Front. The following is on extract from a private letter received from Major T. F. Rutledge :—" I met a very inter- esting man this afternoon. He is a Greek and a judge in the native court. It appears there are two courts, one for natives and one for Europeans. Somehow or other the behaviour of the troops cropped up, and he waxed quite indignant at the idea that our men as a whole are be- having badly and bringing discredit on their country. He declares the letters, which he has seen in Aus- tralian papers, to be greatly exag- gerated. He lives near Mena and is constantly travelling in the trams with the soldiers and was impressed by their orderly behaviour. The natives tell him that they like the Australians, and what has impressed them more than anything is the way our men give up their seats in the trams to women. As I said before only a very a very few have behaved badly and among 4o,o00 men, one must expect to get a few bad ones."
BUNGENDORE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 20 April 1915
BUNGENDORE. On the 6th instant a pretty wed- ding was celebrated in the Church of England by the Rev. A. Champion, when Miss Marguerita Murphy, daughter of Mr. John Murphy, of Captain's Flat, was married to Mr. Reuben Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Smith, of Bungendore. There was a large assemblage at the church to witness the ceremony. The bride was gowned in white silk, trimmed with lace and ribbon, wore a wreath and veil, and carried a lovely bou- quet of daisies and white streamers. A gold brooch was given her by the bridegroom. Mr. Cyril Smith, bro- ther of the bridegroom, acted as best man. The bride was given away by Mr. H. McKie. The wedding break- fast was held at the bridegroom's parents' residence. There were about thirty couples present. The lovely wedding cake was a present from Mrs. Charles Masters, of Curran- dooley. Many useful presents were &nbsp; received by the happy couple. Mr. J. McKie proposed the usual toasts, and altogether a very pleasant time was spe...
