1917 STRIKERS. RIGHTS TO BE RESTORED. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
1917 STRIKERS. RIGHTS TO BE RESTORED. • The. Premier, Mr. Lang, stated on Wednesday that he was determined to see that everything was done to expedite the restoration of the sen iority of the 1917 tramway and rail way men who struck work. . "The matter," said the Premier, "is now in the hands of the Railway Com missioners, who have been instructed to restore seniority on the basis of length of service, fitness and other necessary considerations, eliminating entirely the strike factor." In the case of those men whom it is now necessary to regress, the Pre mier continued, in order to restore the strikers' seniority, such employees may be allowed to retain their exist ing rates of pay and the Government will accept a debit of difference be tween the rate now paid and the re cognised rate for the grade to which regression is made in each case. The cost of this reshuffle, accord ing to Railways Secretary Morris, is not yet prepared, but about 5000 men ; are affected. They, however, are n...

LAND DISPUTE. A LEASEHOLD MATTER AT ROSLYN. BETTER THAN A CROSSWORD. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
LAND DISPUTE. A LEASEHOLD MATTER AT ROSLYN. BETTER THAN A CROSSWORD. An. interesting caBe was decided at Friday's sitting o£ the Local Land Board at Goulburn, says the "Post." There were three conflicting applica tions fo.r a block of land, the parties being related to one another. The land in question comprises 146 acres, and is situated near Roslyn. It was desired as a special lease, the applicants being Mrs. E. O. M. Brad ley (formerly Talbot), William Talbot and Mrs. Jane Talbot. The hearing of the case occupied a considerable time. Mrs. Bradley's first husband was the late John Talbot, who was a son of Mrs. Jane Talbot (another of the applicants). The remaining applic ant, "William Talbot, is (also a son, and is therefore a brother-in-law of Mrs. Bradley by her first marriage. The Board considered that as Mrs. Bradley is her former husband's ex ecutrix she had a prior claim on the land. It was accordingly decided to recommend to the Minister that the lease be granted to her upo...

HERE AND THERE [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
HERE AND THERE Sir John Higgins' scheme for the marketing of all wool for the purpose of achieving market stabilisation, in its present form, does not seem to ap peal to the grazier generally The Chief Secretary (Mr. Lazzar ini) says that Labor is determined to abolish proportional representation. He claims that the system has been introduced for the sole purpose o„f crippling the solidarity of the Labor movement. Prominent Labor members, how ever, say that Mr. Lazzarini 5s prob ably expressing his personal views on the matter. Opinion is divided in the Party on the question. * » » Members of the Labor caucus are supporting the claims of 8,000 rail and tram men for lost pay arising out of their supersession by "loyalists" after the 1917 strike. • The claims amount to £2,000,000, but this is an outside estimate, and probably the sum involved will not exceed about £1,"000,000. However, these days it's small potatoes for a Government to talk in millions. i ' • • • The ex-Minister for "...
LESS WORK. SIX[?]HOUR WORKING DAY. SUGGESTED AGITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
j LESS WORK. SIX.HOUR WORKING DAY. SUGGESTED AGITATION. At the last meeting of the Lithgow Labor Day Committee, Mr. R. Rossi said he had heen asked by his union, the Municipal Employees, to suggest to the committee the advisability of altering its name from the Labor Day to the Six-hour Day Committee. His union was of the opinion that the time had arrived when by every legitimate effort the demand for a six-hour working day should be emphasised. Mr. A. Luchetti seconded the mo tion. It was pointed out .that it was only two or three years sinee the name was changed from S-hour day to Lab or Day, and that alteration would have to be rescinded at a special gen eral meeting convened for the pur pose, after notice had been given.,

LOYALTY PLEDGE. IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. MOVE TO ABOLISH. A stir was caused at .the mon. thly meeting of the Council of the Public School'Teachers* Fed. - eration on Saturday when a pro posal was made that certain demonstrations of loyalty in Public Schools should be abol ished. i The matter was raised Jjy/ Mr. J. Reid, who moved, as a matter of ur gency, that the Minister for Educa | tion should he asked to stop "the re petition o£ patriotic platitudes in the ! schools every Monday morning.." | Mr. Reid's proposal provided for I the abolition of the following formula, j the recitation of which by the school | children is compulsory:. "I honour my God, I serve my King, and I sal | ute my Flag." The children are then I required' to sing God Save the King. Many members took strong objec I tion to Mr. Reid's proposal.

POTATO MARKET. SUPPLIES TOO HEAVY. PRICES DROP CROOKWELL BLAMED FOR GLUT. The P.P.U. reports under date 21st July:— [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
POTATO MARKET. SUPPLIES TOO HEAVY. PRICES DROP CROOKWELL BLAMED FOR GLUT. Tlie P.P.U. reports under date 21st July:— On Monday, 20th inst., the potato market underwent a serious change, due to two causes—firstly the shipping strike is likely to be settled early this week, and secondly, very heavy arrivals came from the Crookwell district, together with a heavy Tas manian shipment. At the moment there is in the vic inity of from 35,000 to 40,000 bags oil this market. Far too many for lo cal requirements, despite the fact that the Fleet will be here on Thurs day, adding something like 25,000 souls t6 our population for a short reriod. The market for locals dropped quite 60/- to SO/- per ton on last week's high rates, and Crookwell can carry the responsibility for the fall, having sent far too many forward for Monday's auctions. For potatoes bringing up to £14 last week agents were glad to sell out yesterday at £10 to £11 per ton, and the same ap plies to this morning's market at the A...
Correspondence. (To the Editor of the "Echo.") [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
Correspondence. (To the Editor of the "Echo.") Dear Mr. Editor,—As a subscriber to the "Echo," I would be pleased it you kindly grant me space for the following: > In a recent edition of your paper I read the comments of your Stone I Quarry Correspondent on the recent elections. Apparently his remarks I were rather unpalatable to a few of the late Government's supporters and i particularly so to one, who signs him self Digger. After perusal of Digger's letter which appeared in the last edi tion of the "Echo," it is very obvious that Digger was quite unaware of , the result of the elections, until he 1 read in the "Echo" the Stone Quarry ! news. It appears to have quite upset liis equilibrium. With his temperat j ure at fever heat, and his mind (as | his letter indicates) in a state of wild ' disorder, he launches out in a hostile manner, in a tirade of abuse, and personal insulting remarks (veracity unnecessary) against the contribution of such disquieting news. Although he seems...

Presentation to Father Cahill. A DUAL ROLE—RECEIVER AND GIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
Presentation to Father Cahill. A DUAL ROLE—RECEIVER AND GIVER. On Tuesday night last St. Patrick's Hall, Goulburn, was crowded, when the Catholic community o£ Goulburn honoured the popular administrator, the Very Rev. Fr. \V. F. Caliill, on the occasion of his - silver jubilee. ^ Mr. Locke, who presided, referred to the regard in which the administrat or was held. This was evidenced by the wonderful response of the people. His house, said the chairman, was always open to those in trouble, and persons not of the flock were just as warmly received as Catholics. BISHOP BARRY'S TRIBUTE. . Bishop Barry paid an eloquent tribute to his popular lieutenant. He | was pleased, he said, to be present ; that evening to honour a, priest who i had laboured so zealously 'in the cause of religion. When Father Cahill ; arrived in Australia from his native Ireland it was with the good inten . tion of doing honest work for God. He lived up to that ideal in a manner which did him credit.

EICHLANDS. (From a Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 25 July 1925
EICHLANDS. (From a Correspondent). Our district lias been favoured with a particularly good winter so far. We have had' a plentiful supply of rain •iiul very few frosts. In consequence the grass and crops are growing well for this time of the year. The stock are doing well 011 the natural feed, and are -not causing any anxiety to their owners. Several of the dairymen are still supplying cream' to the factory and intend to continue doing so right throughout the winter. A portion of road, in front of Mr. Bensley's residence, which had been in a very bad state of repair for years, has just been formed and grav elled by the Crookwell Shire Council. About 200 loads of gravel were placed on the road in ten days by two carts, which speaks well for the men em ployed, considering the very boggy state of the ground at present. Mr. W. White was in charge ■ of the job. Much thanks is due to Messrs. G. C. Bradbury and E. N. McAlister for their agitation in connection with this work. About 80 yar...

PROBLEM FOR OUR SHIRE COUNCILS, j i ROAD CONSTRUCTION. The question of keeping the roads of the shires m trafflcable order is calhng for very grave, anil earnest consideration from every shire coun cil throughout the State.
