AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE AND WHO KEEPS THE KEY? To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 15 March 1910
AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE AND WHO KEEPS THE KEY? To the Editor. ] Six—Lord Kitchener is a soldier, and as a soldier he carries out his instructions. His instructions were to report on the. military defences of Australia, and this h&lt;> has done admirably. But he has rot gone outside his instructions, and therefore has said little or nothing' on naval defences, "the key of Ausralia." This might have been expected, but is none the less to be regretted, and there is tiie more need that our defence depart ment should now give its most earnest at tention to he planning and organising of £n efficient system of coastal defence, there must be no dilly-dallying, the wolf is now abroad on the look out. Espe cially should there be created a system nf wireless telegraphy, connecting all re sponsible stations ashore, and fitted for communication-with vessels at sea. On the Other band, all our Government ves sels, as well as the coasting and oversea ti.iding marine should be similarly equip ...

BOOT TRADE APPEAL. WHAT DOES "ARBITRATION" MEAN [?] MELBOURNE, March 14. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 15 March 1910
BOOT TBADE APPEAL. WHAT DOES "ARBITRATION" MEAN 9 MELBOURNE, March 14. The boot trade appeal was continued in the High Court, to-day. Mr. Mitchell, in reply, said that the main question was what was the mean ing of the word "arbitration" in the Con-! stitution. He took it that the limit of arbitration was to determine matters be tween parties., To lay down a rule of conduct, binding upon all persons en-| gaged in a particular industry was to go much further. Arbitration in the ordin ary sense was voluntary, hut there were' certain cases of compulsory arbitration.! He did not think that the Commonwealth i Parliament gave the Court power to settle cases such as the present one. In 'order to ascertain what were the powers of legislation given the Federal Parlia | ment they had to see what the term "arbitration" really meantSat the time of the framing of the Constitution. He sug I gested that it meant something which amoanted to the laying down of a rule binding on other parties. Assumi...

SPORT AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 15 March 1910
SPORT AND POLITICS. At the meeting- of the North Ade laide Football Club last night Council lor Frinsdorf was elected to the posi tion of auditor. When the scrutineers made the ajinoancement that Mr. Frinsdorf had been elected as auditor unopposed, the Mayor of Adelaide (Mr. L.. Cohen), who was in the chair, said that he hoped electors would remem ber the fact that Cr. Frinsdorf was a candidate for the Legislative Council elections, and he asked them to vote for hko. It may be a good electioneer ing dodge to seize the opportunity when there is a large number of elec tors present, and get in a word, but it is certainty not in good taste to use the meeting of a sporting body for such a purpose. The North Adelaide Football Club is essentially a non-poli tical organisation, and it was distinctly oat of place on the part of Mr. Cohen to introduce the political element. At the meeting of the Sooth Adelaide Club recently Mr. E. A. Roberts was one of the speakers, and he set an excellent ex...
VERY MUCH HURT. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 15 March 1910
VERY MUCH HURT. "J." writes:—The "Barrier Miner," the anti-Labor daily paper of Broken Hill, is very much hurt at the success of "Barrier Daily Truth," the pioneer Australian Labor daily. 'rThe "Miner" poses as a* "friend" "to Labor, and sits on the fence in a similar- way to the "Advertiser." In a notice concerning' "The Da2y Herald," the "Miner" ■said:—"It is understood that the capi tal with which "The Daily Herald" has been established has all been honestly subscribed for the purpose, so that this paper will not be under the stigma of being dependent upon money taken from the funds which .belong to the widow and orphan." This passage i&lt;= a covert sneer at the Barrier Labcr paper. The "Miner" is ;ross because! "Truth" has been estaol'.shed i y :he unions and capitalised marly cut of union funds. Perhaps thi&lt; manner of providing- the capital is more honest! and less hurtful to t&e proveitr.il "widow and orphan" than the' methods used to establish the ...

March 12. , At a. meeting held here on Thursday evening Mr. J.Newlandi on rising to ad dress the electors, &ad a wonderful recep tion, sad bad to wait eome minutes before ttie cheering subsided. Mr. Newlabd said his first duty was to ibahk the electors who had, 3J years ago,, ittnmed him to Parliament, ana espe c-ally-the 450 persons who had voted for! Xijjn at Petersburg.' He had done his best in the interests o£ the electors and the party to which he had the honor' to be long. He felt it necessary to give them' a few facts concerning' what had been done and was to JSfe done in Parliament. The most important thing was imdoubt &lt;)-lly the question of the franchise. Every fccdy remembered the compromise that bad been made. It was never satisfac tory to the JLabor Party, who had reluc tantly accepted it. Tke party at the time, - Jrowever, were careful to add that they folly intended to start a fresh agit...
CORPORATION LOANS. [Newspaper Article] — Daily Herald — 15 March 1910
CORPORATION LOANS. Some difference of opinion has arisen amongst the lawyers of the city as to the legality or otherwise of the £14,000 and .£12,000 loans proposed to be; raised hy the Adelaide Corporation by: debentures. In the first instance, the! A.M.P. Society and the Savings Bank, I both tendered for the loan, and the lai-' ter's rtender being the cheaper, was; [accepted. Then a hitch arose. The so-j ciety referred the matter to its solici-j itors, who advised that the conditions; as set out by the council did not com-1 ply with the statutory requirements. \ The council's solicitors were of; opinion that everything necessary had been done. A conference was held, and the society asked that tie matter should be referred to an outside solicitor, but the council's representatives would not; agree to that and the negotiations eventually fell through. Ultimately arrangements were made for the Sav-j ing-s 'Bank to transact the business, but before this was done it was in-1 sisted that...

All that was left for the depart ment to do was to provide the wires and the instruments. The show was a highly creditable one, and some of the' exhibits would ■ have been hard to beat in any part of the State.

MINERAL ASPHALT. At yesterday's meeting: £>f the Ade laide City Council it was stated during a discussion regarding- the merits of paving the streets with mineral asphalt or with wood blocks that if a recom mendation to adopt the former system j were agreed to. it woa'd mean that no | tenders could be called, and that the job would just be handed over to a ! monopolist. Alderman Simpson pointed lout, however, that such was not the case, as there were four firms compet ing for the trade, and that there would be just as much competition as there would be if wood blocks were included in the tender.

THE CITY THAT SHALL BE. ADELAIDE ON SATURDAY NIGHT. FRUIT OF AN EVIL TREE. ("The Daily Herald" Special). Ourselves mo£t we beneath the conch of earth Descend, ourselres to make a conch—for whom? —Omar Khayyam. A stroll through the streets of Adelaide on Saturday night reveals to the thought ful rbssrver much that is pleasant and much that is ibhocient. It depends in what quarter of ~.ne city he chances to be, whether the abhorrent is more in evi dence than the pleasant. The gaiety, space - nd freedom of King William street may be contrasted with the gloom and confinement of squalid alleys that are to be found further to the west The writer happened to be star c mg in Rundle street when ue decided to set out upon an ob servant ramble, ani he made his way into the Arcade. Xhere is a suggestion of the "land where .t is always afternoon" in the very name are'de, and without doubt it is a haven of rest to those tired with the bustle of fhe tasy and narrow thor oughfare from which it open...
