Our Sydney Letter. Sydney, September 9th, 1913. A. Critical Position. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
Our Sydney Letter. - Sydney, September yfli, 1913. A. Critical Position. . ; '.' There is a good deal of strained an ticipation in. /'.Labor ''circles over the position in Melbourne. Mr. Irvine1, the Federal Attorney-General, holds a 'general retainer'3 for' the Marconi .Co., which is at law- with the Gommon . wealth. It. is worth £5 a year only, but he will not . surrender it, main taining th a c he has no intention of acting on 'behalf of the company, and that the retainer does not hamper ]ns political action hi any 'way. -Mr. Fisher, the leader of the Opposition, ?was quite, satisfied with the explana tion. But „ the more 'forward' spirits '?of the party- have taken their Xwn course, and are moving a resolution c£ censure, which Mr. Fisher, in. spite of himself, will have to support. It is claimed that the- Opposition must win, because Mr. Irvine, being pecuniarily interested, though only, to the extent of a 'fiver,' will be debarre-1 from voting, and the Government, w'izh ihe fu...
TWO FOR NAT, AND ONE FOR JACK. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
two'fos'nat, and ocra roii JACK. The ' Cygnet -J =idds its anp:o''uiuon of S'Tat Harper, whose opinion doesn't seem co coincide ''with those held by the frightful personages 'who .occupy the editorial den of certain newspapers. It gives -Nat a quiet, certain and neot bump, and incidentally shows -a lack of interest in Jack Scaddau, our pre sent' Premier. It says: — ' Nat Harper, M.L.A. for Pingelly, vrno contends that a mineowner who employs 100 wages incn should have 100 votes, is really no more ')f an extremist on the side of Fat than chaps like T^xau ? Green and Jimmy Cornell are ultra-barrae'vers for Lean 'aud Gristle. In fact, the Harper doctrine might a ery ? avcII be placed side^ by side with the Cornell article of 'faith that .miners on pro ?positions 'like tho Great .Boulder should be 'entitled to the vrhole iof the results of their labor, or with Senator de Largie's contention that a four hours working day would be a fair thine- for every toiler - in these on lightened day...
Electioneering. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
^Slectioueering. ' In State j.oiitics viucnuuecring is .more in evidence than anything else. The. Oppodicion has the advantage of' the Government to the extent !J:at iis members ire not hampered Dy the 10 sponsibilities ami cares of office. To push forward a highly contentious pro* gramme of legislation, administer the affairs of che State, and maice election eering trips inio the country all at one and the 'same time, is too much lor ordinary endurance, and mere are un mistakable signs that the strain is beginning to tell. The parcy i.u gen eral is anxious to qiut legislation, .aud get to the electors as soon a!?*possible. The death of 'Andy.'1 Kelly, the mem ber for the Lachlan, which makes th-iq Government dependent on th© vote of an odd ' hi dependent ' for its posi tion, has accentuated this desire, and it is confidently expected, that the doors of the :Macquarie-sxreet - 'talking -strop' will very shortly be closed.

MT. JACKSON AND MARDA. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
MT. JAOKSON A-ND- MARDA. As stated at the 'beginning of this articl?, Mt. Jackson mill was re started and established a record for .the. whole' State by returning 3,091.35. fine ozs. by amalgamation from 1,608 tons'; yet, like Golden Valley, this , district was utterly untoueaed for a period of /over ten years. This,,year promises, to be better than 1912 at both of the re vived centres.
GOLDEN VALLEY. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
*GOLD^T VALLEY.'' Golden Valley was 'the first field found on the Eastern goldfields, and though it wont for about . 16 years ?without producing a solitary ton of ore, crushines to 1,720' tons were milled there last.ye-ir from 25 different leases uand prqspccting areas for a roturn of 1,861 fine oz. This means, that the oldest field on the Eastern fields milled 1,720 'ton's last year, after being totally abandoned ior 16 years,for an average return' by battery only, of just on 22 .dwts. fine gold per ton; yet such facts do not help to dispel the , prevailing notion' in 'Perth about the goldfields 'being done. The' richest of the par cels treated at the Valley , last year were Manxman South ' Extended, : 40 - tons for 103% fine' ozs.; Marie's Fiud, 253 tons for 3J7ozs, -ISdwtp.' fine] and GJideaway, 234 tons- far 360 o/s. fine. These returns' are exclusive of sand contents. ? £
The Cost of Living. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
The Cost of Living. Closely connected with' industrial questions is the cost; of living. Mr^ IKnibbs' last 'Labor Bulletin' shows that in the quarter ef the year just ended, the cost of living in Sydney was nearly 4 per cent higher than in the corresponding quarter of last vear, whereas in the other five capitals thei e wa3 virtually no change. It also ? ap pears that in the ^ist- ualf of this year, 42,215 persons ia this State re ceived increments of pay amounting to £10,300 weekly, whereas i.i - the other five States, taken togethei*, only 32,506 persons received increases amounting to £6,842 weekly. Once more, our own State is the 'awful exs ample. And the only consolation we have is ~th.it, thanks to our previous histohy, before we fell among thieves, ours is the only State that could stand it!. ' ' ' '
Disaster and Futility. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
Disaster and Futility. - It is now estimated that- i'u!ly two thirds of the people of Sydney h;o'e been 'successfully' \uccinated — some of them, alas, far too succc^srullyv to please any one except the under taker—either ; with the Melbourne lymph, whien was productive of the 'savage inoculations' which marked the earlier stages of Ihc outbreak, or with the Sydney variety, whicn is al most' as bad. One might suppose, therefore, in view. of, the asseverations of the medical officials, that 'die case's of alleged 'smallpox' would show a proportionate diminution. But noth ing of the kind. The rash continues its course as serenely as if there had been no vaccination at all! On Satur day_ and Sunday, there were no loss than 18 cases, making the total some where near 700, without a single fa tality. It is, I believe, .against the 'ethics' of the profession ever to ,-A mit having made a mistake.. Its i.i's takes are jmt six fet luidv^aim.l, where they don't. offenttL-u!-? juhlic sensibili...
A Comparison. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
A Comuarisdu. A comparison of the doath-ratss of Victoria and New South Wales o.ight to be instructive at the present junc ture, and some Parliamentarians ra-o taking note of them. The cimrn stances of th.e two States, espeeiilly as regards infant life, are very simi lar. But there is evidently a Moloch in' Victoria which hurries many more children and others into their graven than, the grim reaper claims in New South Wales. For instance, according to the latest official ^statisciM, -ti'e general death-rate of Qnr own tttato in 1912' was 10.86 per 1000 of mean population. The similar uwii h-rate in Victoria was 12.23, or nearly 13 per cent, higher! The death r^te per 1000 m New South Wales from tuberculosis (the 'white plague,' which afi'e?ts the bovine inimal as well as the humin being) in the Fame year wos 0.71. In Victoria, it was 0.93, or o0 per cent, higher. The similar death-rate from cancer in Now South .Wales was 0.74., In Alctoria it was 0.90, oi 22 per cent, higher. The pr...

HOW TO £RAIN FOE A MARA THON. ; -? A fetw suggestions of how to -train for a Marathon, race will doubtless prove acceptable to many novices. The principal item is walking.. Get out for a 16-mile, walk three or f pur times a; week, and walk at $, good, steady, four-aad-.a-half miles an hour pace. On the other days go eight i miles only at about five miles an. 'hour, \ saving one day for a 16-mile run on I the roads. Keep this up for a month j or six weeks, and then go harder for j the last month. Lengthen your run | ,-,-n i-n, 90 milpc m-ilpis ? nv fivp.n 25 miles, i and do this either twice -a week, -.or \ three., times a fortnight.

Sydney Letter Police Administration. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
Sydney Letter Police Administration. The. civilisation and security of the community depend, in the last analy sis, on the efficiency of its police 'force. The Police Appeal Bill, u-jv? before Parliament, is being seriously ques tioned that it will, to a great extent, remove the power oi promoting ' mem bers of the force, and it is contended that any step which is1 likely to. dimin ish this sense of responsibility is to bie deprecated. On the other hand, as j is inevitable among a large body of j men, there are many who'^think that j their merits are overlooked by. their j superiors, or that promotion, which j they think that are entitled to by \ir: | tue of seniority, is bestowed on some j younger aspirant. Whatever the sys- j tern, there are sure to be some who j are dissatisfied, and the case is one which .seems 10 call for very careful consideration. A police force is neces sarily constituted more or less on a military basis, and to remit its prac tical admnistraton to a Board, ...
BOXING. JOCK CRAIG V. JERRY PICKUP. [Newspaper Article] — Coolgardie Miner — 20 September 1913
BOXING. JOCK CRAIG V. JEBRY PICKUP. On Saturday evening last the lovers of th© fistie art were treated, to an ex hibition of 'abxing between: the above lads, and although the . contest only lasted for ? three rounds it was admitted .pnall sides: that the fair audience present was given satisfaction for its money. Craig, who was a '''stone heavier than Pickup, was contenc in the first round to merely stave off his opponent's hurricane right and left, which did not have much effect on him, as he was the better conditioned man. In the second round Pickup again forced the ;fighting, and 'although he got home a few nice hits, they did not make much impression on his heavier opponent. Clinchies ,»ore also numer ous, and while at close quarters Craig got home with some very telling body punches which considerably weakened Pickup, the round ending in. Craig's favor. In the third round Pickup again came forward in a lightning manner, but Craig introduced his short arm jabs and eventually got...
