THE RAILWAY SERVANTS. MR TOUTCHER FAVORS A WAGES BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 21 February 1914

If a similar system were adopted here it would' relieve this House of a great deal of Ja::os, and save its time in the consideration ,of these siubjects. If the Wages'Board system is good enough for the outscaer, surely it ought to be good enough for the Go vernment. The Wages'Board system is held by us to be eminently superior to the Arbitration Court. It is cer tainly a system -which deserves to be' .extolled. If it is so efficacious outside, ,why should-it not be apglied to our own employes l--'think that .:'...

MEXIQAN BRIGAND. AMERICANS PUZZLED. INTERNATIONAL LAW INVOLVED. WASHINGTON, Wednesday. The United States authorities have been sorely perplexed as to what they should do with the Mexican lirigand, Castillo, who was captured in Texas a ifew days after he had set fire Lo a railway tunnel in Northern Mexico and thereby caused the loss of 41 lives. The State Department found itselfi unable to order that Castillo should be handed over to the rebels as such ac tion would be likely to be construed into recognition of their belligerency. The United States is likewise unable to try Castillo, because his offences have all been committed in Mexico. The Huertian Government has made no application for the bandit. In the circumstances, it is thought that the only course open to the United States is to deport Castillo as an ulidesirable alien at some spot on the border where General Villa's rebel force will be able to re-capture him. l General Villa, leader of the rebels :in Northern Mexico, has p...
