MEETINH OF PARILIAMENT Perth,, Jan. 19. The sittings of both Houses of Parliament will be resumed on Tues Iday. It will .be remembered that Par liament" adjourned. several weeks ago, in order to permit the Premier, Mr. Frank Wilson, to proceed to Melbourne, to attend t'e Premiers' Conference. His presence there was considered urgent, as it was essen tial to make arrangements with the Federal -Treasurer for the supply of loan money for the. Stae. In order to comply with Mr. Wilson's desire to get away, .the general and loan estimates were rushed through, both Houses with indecent ,haste--haste that almost anmounted at a scandal. In the -Assembly they were dealt with in an all-night sitting, and re ceived but little attention. The Council members were required to pass the estimates through all stages in a few minutes. And they did it! It has now been learned that in every department the esti mates of expenditure -showed con siderable increases, notwithstanding the war, and the need fo...

SCARCITY OF WATTLE BARK Melbourne, Jan. 19. According to a statement made by Mr. M. H. P. Zwa,r, the president of ' the Federated Master Tanners and Manufacturers' Association of Aus trada, a deputateion from which body waited upon the Minieter for Cus tomr3 to-day, the quantity of wa blee bark used by the. trade in Australia amounts Ito about 30,000 tons a year, but, owing to the wet season and the shortage of labour, the require ments for this year could not pos sibly be met, as only a quarter of 'tbe bark required had been obtain edo and there was no Ekelihood of the balance being made up. In these circumstances, it was urged That the duty of 30/ per ton on bark should be removed to enable the dtanneries to obtain supplies from Soulth Africa. Large contracts for military work had to be, completed, and unless bark was obtainable the ta-ineries would be unable to supply1 the leaiher required.

ESPERANCE Esperancc, Jan. 12. Five motor cars from Kalgoorlie arrived in Esperance this afternoon, and have given the town quite a buty appearance. The visitors, who have come to Esperance for the first time, are very much impressed with Esperance Bay. Most of them in tend remaining for a few weeks, and as there is a fair amount of sport Ito be obtained, including shooting, fishing, and sea bathing, they should have an enjoyahble time. The Esperance Red Crose Society sent another very creditable parcel by the last steamer to the Red Cross headquarters in Perth. Members are busily engaged in getting togethbe another parcel, and will be pleased to have the assistance of all who can help. There is every possibility of the salt, works at Pink Lake being 4tart ed shortly. Although he railway, earthworks are completed to the lake, and the sleepers and rails are in Esperance ready to be laid, 1he salt will most likely have to be carted over the road instead of be ing conveyed in by train. ...

COOLCAIDIE MUNICIPAL BATIHS Coolgardie, Jan. 17. Though somewhat late in the sea son, Coolgardie folks and especial ly the youngsters, will be pleased to learn that the Municipal Baths will be filled in a few days, and those desirous of a "dip" may go along and enjoy one. This is good news, indeed, as owing to the baths prov ing a financial failure, it was decid ed by the Municipal Council to close them and it was feared that there would be no swimming this summer for either old or young. The dif ficulty has, however, been overcome by the energy of Crs. Hanley and Hansen, and Messrs. Sheedy and Rockett, who, recognising the im portance of the baths to children of the town, promptly formed them selves into a committee, and can vassed the town for subscriptions, in order that. the baths might be kept open during this summer. The response to these gentlemen's ef forts was so successful that sufficient has been subscribed to date to carry out. their desire. Crs. Hanley and Hansen, and M...

THE GREENFINCH LEASES. PAYABLE ORE IN SIGHT. Westonia, Jan. 17. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917

THE GREENFITC[H LEASES. PAYABLE ORE IN SIGHT. Westonia, Jan. 17. The Greenfinch gold mining leases, an Adelaide owned property, should receive the immediate and careful consideration of sharholders. The property consists of three pro mising leases at Westonia-The Re covery, Advance, and the Myrtle-72 acres in all told. These mining areas deserve greater exploitation than they have received, and in Sorder to do this. modern equipment is necessary. The nwining area em braced in the company's leases strikes many experienced mining men as being the start of the ore channel made notable in recent years as a result of operations on the Edna May and other mines. On two of the Greenfinch leases-the Myrtle and the Advance--compara tively little work has been accom plished. On the Recovery lease, the most extensively prospected area, intrusive granite bars are numerous, but the reefs located do I not appear to have been cut off by the bars.

Ll HELPING OUR SOLDIERS o So .much is being heard now-a d days concerning the work of the Y:M.C.A., in every sphere of mili tary operations, in addition to its o ordinary activities, that inquiry is d frequently made as to how the ass e sociation has taken such a quick B leap into public estimation. Referring to this Mr. J. Henry I Lang, National Secretary of the Y.M.C.A. for Australia, has made i an interesting statement. The .as sociation, he said, started in Eng land 70 years ago, with twelve mem I bers.

Dean Inge, of St. Paul's, speak ink in Great St. Mary's, Cam bridge, from the words, "Let 1.s run with patience the race that is set before us,". said: "So far as this war has any direct lessons to teach us, they are warnings against indiscipline and failure to read the signs . of the times, against sectional fanaticisms and want of balance in our inter ests. Our collective moral faults are mainly due to our slowness in even attempting to see the meaning of life as a whole. "The task before us after the war will be very largelrT an intellectual nroblem-how to direct and organ ise our resources, and stop' the wastefulness which is the main rea son why, in the last century, we achieved so little wit. all our pros perity.

IN MEMORY OF TWO FINE SOLDIERS GENERAL GLASFURD AND COLONEL HOWELL PRICE. BRAVE, UNASSUMING MEN. (From C. E. W. Bean, Australian War Correspondent.) (Copyright Reserved to Crown.) British Headquarters, France. Nov. 21. Probably few men even of those who were there knew how much they owed to Major Glasfurd during the critical days of the landing at Anzac. He was second general staff officer on the staff of the old First Australian I)ivision, which was as brilliant as that of any British unit which ever went to war. But it is not the usual role of any staff to travel the firing line ceaselessly from end to end during battle. hopping over the scrub from one little rifle pit to another-to take new units up to it, and lead old units forward where they are far too back, and set them down nearer to the enemy to rally retiring men. and put them down on the line which they must hold. Glasfurd did not talk about the things he did; he simply did them because he saw they had to be done, L.nd he...

He submitted a statement to the Commission, after which some highly interesting state ments were made. In answer to questions by mem bers of the Commission, witness re iterated his previous expression of opinion that the agricultural che mist shoull be allowed to take samples for analysis himself. The whole question . of agricultural analysis and reports had been fully considered by an interstate confer ence of agricultural chemists a few years ago, and it had been pointed out that, as far as possible, samples should be taken under the direction of the agriculinuraa chemist himself. The chemist was very often placed in a very awkward and difficult position by having to report on samples of the origin of which he knew nothing except that they had been received in his laboratory.

THE MINING CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 23 January 1917

THE MINING CONFERENCE. It is nearly six months since the Centralisation Government came into office, and promised to convene a conference representative of various goldfields interests to .devise a policy for the advancement of the mining industry. The announce ment was received with satisfaction, and proved a sort of salve for the goldfields' injured feelings. The Ministership of Mines was made the most subordinate position in the Wilson Ministry, being a sort of' appendix to the Attorney-General's Department. For nearly a quarter of a century the mining industry has been West Australia's chief indus try, and its mainstay. It is often referred to slightingly by certain! coastal politicians as unstable, but the truth is that it has been the only stable industry that West Aus-' tralia possesses. Other industries have been affected by low prices, by droughts, and by other ills that have disappointed the State's hopes.. The pearling and timber industries have almost ceased to exist.; t...
