The Disappearance of South Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 6 September 1913
The Disappearance of South Sea Natives. &nbsp; In the Anthropological section at the Science Congress a paper was read by Mr H. H. Thiele, a resident of Fiji, on " The Disappearance of Native Races in General, and of Fijians in Particular." The paper gave rise to much discussion. Mr. Thiele advanced some very fair &nbsp; reasons to account for this decrease of the native population. One was the mortality from epidemic diseases, such as measles, introduced by con- tact with outside civilisation. Another was the absence of sanitary arrange- ments in the villages, and the bad position often selected for native houses. A third reason adduced, and the one which did not seem tenable to many members of the section, was that the decrease was to be accounted for by the action of the missionaries in forbidding polygamy. It was pointed out in reply by Dr. Brown, Dr. Fison, and others that whilst the missionaries undoubtedly dis- couraged polygamy they had not been alone in this...
A Small Families Encouragement Act. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 6 September 1913
A Small Families Encourage- - ment Act. New Zealand does not think much of Australia's notion of a maternity allowance, and is about to introduce an allowance of its own that is both maternity and paternity. In fact, the Maoriland baby bonus goes more to papa than mamma. This may be reasonable, but does not coincide with the new woman's view of man's ridiculous unimportance in the scheme of things. The New Zealand method of encouraging the producers is &nbsp; worked in with the Land and Income Tax proposals. The new Bill pro- vides an exemption in the Income &nbsp; (?) &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Tax of £25 for each dependent child under the age of 16 in a family not exceeding four, where the joint in- come of the parents is not more than £700 per annum. This proposal seems terribly mixed, and the more you look into it the more mixed it appears. Our baby bonus met with a great...
FOOTBALL. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 6 September 1913
FOOTBALL. &nbsp; &nbsp; Interest will once more be revived in Coolgardie football to- morrow when a combined team from Southern Cross will arrive here by the express with the intention of seeing whether our players are deserving of serious con- sideration for the world's champion- ship question. They will have to put in the time up till the match as best they can, assisted by a little entertain- ing by the local team, and no doubt they will think Coolgardie a city com- pared to the lethargic Cross, which is just at present as quiet as a church mouse. Only the best players are in- cluded in the team, and only the best players will go on to the field to meet them, as several of those would-be footballers whohave been inflicting &nbsp; themselves on us lately under the pre- text that they are ex-Carlton men had better lie low. Football has been little more than a lot of men chasing an inflated article all over a barren field this season, and to-morrow's match is...

' Cooigardie Races. OPENING DAY.

LuL a hot spell oi a uuy or two was broken on race day by rain's, steady and Heavy. .Although things - looked deeidadiy unpromising, in the morning, and heads were poked out the windows doubtfully, the afternoon 1 turned put not at all bad. At worst, if was threatening, but that was suiikient to keep many from putting .iirf'aii appearance on the course.

A WAT SOUTH. Mr. C- S. Tlonman, one on the Gov-' eminent field geologists, has been in structed to 'leave Norseman to1 inspect the Bremmer Itange district. . After having made a survey of that centre, he is to make for Parker's Range and make a geological survey that will connect with the one on' which Mr! Blatchford is now engaged, and on which Mr. Gibb Maitland is now spend ing some Lime.

CHEAP JACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
. CHEAP JACKS. Coolgardie is .not usually looked upon as containing a sufficient quantity of spare boodle to attract the cute iind. sharp eyed 'Cheap Jack,' whose pri mary object is to fleece the curious crowd, who gather around him, cf all they have, giving in return an article -rhat might have been manufacturea by Noah during his solitary 'life' in 'cite Ark for all the use it is in modern life. But the races on Wednesday brought along one of this feathery horde, whose hat and cut ot rtyl© t-ros claimed him pne grpwn old ..end cun ning in his profession. He t»oo2 up. his self nominated quarters in a doorway of a deserted shop in Bayley-stneet, and opened his entertainment ~with a . speech that had a painful parrot ilring about it, and suggested that he had been studying it for years pas'c.

The Financial Position. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
The Financial Position. Like charity, a sojid majority covers a multitude of sins. Otherwise oue would say that never was a Govern ment in. so parlous a financial position as that which has entrusted the keep ig'of its purse-strings to Mr. Cann. He began. the current financial year- on 1st July last with a deficit of- a million and a half. He would dearly like to .teir the. people what he means to do in .order to 'rectify -this lop-sided -state of affairs. But the fates are against 'aim. He finds himself . compelled by the force of circumstances, to forego the usual exhaustive financial statement, and simply to obtain fotfr months' 'Supply. This will, tide the State over the ax^roashig1 elections; and after that— what? It may be that the sub sequent proceedings will trouble tlie party no more. _' But, if - they shou'd a^ain be returned to pp,wer, and shouil. in the meantime, 'have .earned on at the preset rate of expenditure, there w,ill be veyr yerious trouble for some body. For th...
Party Spites. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
Party Spites. \ . Mr. Coolc, the Prime Miister of the Commonwealth, has been ..paying nis usual week-end- visit to Sydney,- and has been giving his views on the situa-' tion to the pre^s. It is by no means a rose-colored view; 'If Mr. Wade is lashing Mr. Holman ''with; whips, Mr. Holman V friends in the .Federal sphere are lashing as with scorpions. * ?' And he continues, ^For |;hree weeks the dreary drip of 'dilatory 'declamation has continued, 'ind it looks as if another week would be wasted before a de cision is reached.7 .The Opposition can 't g;oA-ern, of coursis. It could not govern even if it were allowed to come into office. But , if it can bait the other side. And it is baiting it ac cordingly. It demands a dissoluton. But the troubLa is that'th^re is no rea jion to believe :that a fresh election would make any material difference in the state of partfes. . It is. claimed that the Liberals not only, obtained a ma jority in the House--it is the very smallest that could possi...
"A Dark Horse." [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
'yiiSark Horse.' The leading men on both sides of the political arena want to ; keep smallpox and compulsory vaccination in the background. It'is; a. 'dark horse,' and though it 'is ; certain, when the guileless electors realise its signifi cance, to have a- very potent effect on tiier voting, no one is prepared to say ?exactly what that effect -win bo. . The general impression is: that the Gov ernment which imposes compulsion on | this State, where the matter has al | ways, been left to the discretion of the people themselves, will thereby earn pronounced unpopularity.'- Perhaps that is the secret ' of the touching anxiety which is being evinced by the Opposition that, the 'Government should assume ths responsibility. Dr. Arthur moved the adjournment* of the State Assembly last week Vo-wx^a 'the necessity for immediate steps being taken by the -Government to stamp out the epidemic of smallpox. ' '?-. The only means of so stamping it out that , pre sents itself to the mind of the; w...

Our Visitors. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
Our Visitors. - Mr. L. S. Amery, the unionist mem 1 ' ber for South Birmingham, was the first of the British visitors to arrive. The contingent which travelled via America is due this morning. Unlike the- Scottish Agricultural Commission and the Dominions Trade Commission, the present visit has no drect political significance. It is of the nature of a return ..courtesy to the visit paid oy Australian Parliamentarians to Britain . at the time of the Coronation. It is expected that tho A-ieAvs of both par ties will be broadened by actual obser . vation of die conditions prevailing; at the Antipodes. Indeed, it might even be urged that a visit to other lands should be regarded a si an indispensable qualification for a legislator.
Under Wheat. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
Under. Wheat. -The State Statistician, Mr. Trive,tt, bets the satisfaction of being able to ' announce that the area that has been put under ca-op for wheat this season, namely, 3,731,000 acres, is faT and away ? the largest in the histoxy of the State. The nearest approach to it is that of last year, which was 2,936,000 acres. Favorable A^eather in the ploughing seaiaon facilitated operations, and left sufficient moisture in the ground to cause- 'the grain to germinate. Just now, more rain is needed to give tin plant a start. If the season is even ordinarily kind, a bumper crop may be confidently expected. ?
The Political Campaign. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
. j ??_''? The Political Campaign. The political campaign is being vig orously wag:ed in the country districts. Indeed, many members, nervous about ? the possible undermining tactics of 'the other fellow,' would very gladly abandon the pretence of further legis- j lation and go at once to their consLi- I tuets. Mr. Holman has made an elabo rate defence of the expenditure of his Government, which is being denounced by the Opposition as ruinously ex travagant, ile says that precisely the same objections were urged against the projects of the late Mr. E. W. O'Sullivan. Yet every one of the pro posals of ' that far-sighted tint, , ritrtent inan' had been A'indicated by results. . As- the typewriter registers' these words the mind of the author goes back to . a certain pretentious edifice on Miller's Point, which, for years, Avas known as O 'Sulilvan 's folly, because it was built ^ for a purpose which was not needed, and in pursuance of a project which J was never carried out. But it 'm...
An Attractive Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 13 September 1913
An Attractive Scheme. S A very attractive scheme for pro- 1 viding suitable immigrants with ready made farms is being ventilated in the press. It is ?lrged that this is the \sys-'- tern which has proved.'. so., attractive in Canada, and there 'is no reason to doubt that it would, ba equally potent here. It. was understood that some thing of the kind was being attempted at the Yanco irrigation settlement, but that gjrave complaints were made of the cost of preparing the farms aud homesteads. It is. Sw»t,eu ?Iiat a large estate will be available lor offering in this manner, if -the Government cannotvsee _ts w..\;f to take up the pro ject. The most obvious criticism is that if ready-made farms can be offered on the terms stated there will be no need to wait for immigrants, for they Avould be eagerly snapped- up by. inen already on the spot. ? , -
