THE BAD ROADS CONTROVERSY. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912

! THE BAD JIOADS CONTltOVEKSY. ! Mr. Hiclcsoa, retiring president of the Sydney Harbour Trust, speaking us an expert, believes that the roads of the State are in a worse conditio! than before the introduction of loc al government in rural New South Wales. "Theoretically," the veter an explained, "local government is a very good thing, but in this coun try the population is too sparse, and tney have not enough money to keep up the roads. You want bigg er population, and then local gov ernment will be all right.'' That, of course, is an obvious truth. Where theri; arc no people there are no rates, and the parts where there are neither are so plentiful in the country that local government funds like the Government grants to coun try reserves, are not eiiuai to re quirements, Nor, for that matter, iue municipal rates.

NOTHING ELSE FOR IT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 9 March 1912

NOTHING ELSE FOR IT. Probably die claims 01' tlie Kur al Workers' Union will shortly como before the Arbitration Court. The union is obliged to eitc. individual employers, and the light will turn on the first few eases that come be fore the court. The K.W.U. is mak ing strenuous efforts; and the lead ers in the movement arc confident of success. They have expressed themselves as having no intention of toning down their claims in re gard to hours and wages. And as these are the main points, it is evident that there is nothing else for it but- the Arbitration Court. The farmers' organisations, too, are busy. For months they have been organising. North and youth and west farmers have come together in a manner that augurs well for the future. They had their organisat ions before, but nothing like what they have now. The opportunity to show their strength is presented in the rural workers' claims.

Mr French, who is of an inventive turn of mind, has just invented a contri vance which does away with the street newspaper-seller, and by means of which all that the. news paper-reader has to do is to insert a penny in a slot, press a button, and his paper is delivered to him. The contrivance may he constructed in any size or shape, but the 0110 which Mr French has made for dem onstration purposes is the shape and size of a butter-box. It is fitted with a tin cyclinder with 34 indent ations, each capable of holding a copy of the "Forbes Times." and is worked on tho rotary princi ple.

From a Woman's Standpoint. In a reccnt issue of "The Argus" men tion was rnado of the necessity which exists in Sydney and otiier of our Com monwealth cities for some effective sys tem of housing our working women. The establishment of hostels lias bfeen sug gested as one method of solving a difficult problem. It may be of interest to tlio women readers of "The Argus" to know something of the lines upon which" these hostels are conducted. The following is a description of one of the Victoria Hostel for working women, opened in a popu lous quarter of London through the in strumentality of Lord rtadstock, a well known English philanthropist and 'Chris tian worker. The success of these ven tures has more than realised tiie most sanguine expectations of their worthy founder.

A HAPI'TT ENDIITG. I have just witnessed the culmination of a series' of events which have now come to what seems to ba a very lmppy ending. A few years ago, out of compassion I fed and clothed a rather smart-looking young man, who appeared to be on the verge of starvation. A few' weeks after wards my house was burglariously entered and several articles of value were stolen. Tho matter was put in the !iand3 of the police, and eventually the thief was cap tured while trying to dispose of the ar ticles. I was vexejl and annoyed almost be yond belief to find .that the burglar was the young man I had succoured such a short while before.
