An unusual proposal was submit ted to-day to the Federal Minister for Works, Senator Lynch, by the Builders and Labourers' Union, as a means of settling the strike of the sewer workers at the FLindera Naval Base.

THE WAR LOAN AND RECRUITING COMMITTEES. AEcting on the request of the Commonwhealth Treasurer, supple mented by circulars from the organ ising secretaries of the recruiting movement in each State. the Local Recruiting Committees throughout the country are now, in addition, devoting their energies to securing subscribers to the War Loan.

POLITICAL GOSSIP Perth, Jan. 23. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
POLITICAL GOSSIP fPerth, Jani. 23. The supporters of the Govern ment are all striving hard to per suade Mr. Frank Wilson to take the Agent-Generalship. It is now universally recognised that as Treasurer he is a hopeless failure. When he was Treasurer in the Moore Government, the then Pre mier had to take the office from hint and give. him another portfolio. Mr. Wilson, since he hes been in office, has been piling up a deficit at the rate of £1,000,000 a year, and the only hope for the State and the Cen tralisation party is to get him out of the way. He has definitely as serted that he will not take the Agent-Generalship, but there are those who positively assert that I.e must change his mind or - In the event of Mr. Wilson posi tively refusing to go, public opinion strongly favours the ap pointment to the Agency-General of Mr. M. L. Moss, the able Freman tie lawyer, who for more than twenty years was prominently iden tified with the State's public life as a member of Parliament. He ...
SHOCKING FATAL ACCIDENT Melbourne, Jan. 23. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
SHOGKINC FATAL A$ICIDEHT Melbourne, Jan. 23. A shocking accident occurred at tihe Bendigo locomotive sheds this afternoon, resulting in the death of James Frederick Britt (58)- and seri ous iijuries to Robert Bissett (35). Oply fint hopes are entertained of lisrdett'e recovery. Together with Albert Pinches, en gine fitter, and a labourer named Arthur Cocks, Brit.t and Biissett were in a drop pit lifting the wheels onto an engine by the aid of an air' jack, when the piston ja?imed. The men took the heavy cover off the cylinder to see where the defect was, and Pinches left the pit to secure a piece of wood. In his absence, Britt and Bissett tried to ease the second piston in the cylinder by means of a feel r and bar. When it was..rele sed, the tremendous air pressure drove t pston upward with greed force, a&n it struck the two men who weire bending over the cylinder. The top of Britt's head was almost bl La off, and Biesett's head was k?l?o badly injured.
KINGIA GRASS THEE CONCESSION Perth, Jan. 23. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
KINCIA CRASS TREE CONCESSION Perth, Jan. 23. The Select Committee appointed to report on the Kingia Grass Tree Concession Bill presented their re port to the Legislative Council to dey. The report recommended that the bill should not be further proceeded with. It further stated that the area upon which the kingia grass tree grows comprised a strip of country running north and south from a point about fifty miles north of Perth to Cape Naturaliste, a dis tance of about 200 miles, and of a width varying very considerably. The value of the fibre existing in the plant seemed to be beyond question, as the experience of local a?uthorities using kingia fibre for street brooms showed that it out lasted very considerably any other description of fibre used for this purpose. There would .ppear to be at present no satisfactory method devised of treating the raw material, though the problem should offer no difficulties to practical engineers. The value of byjproducts occur ing in the manufactur...
