KONDINNIN-MERREDIN RAILWAY. Perth, Jan. 26. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
KONDINNIN-MERREOIN RAILWAY. Perth, Jan. 26. A deputation waited upon the Premier, Mr. Wilson, to-day, with reference to the ex~tension of the Kondinnin railway northwards to Merredin. The Premier said they had al ready got authority to extend the line from Kondinnin northwards, and they could proceed with that work immediately. It had been the intention of the Government 'to call for public tenders for this work early this year in accordance with: the avowed policy of the Govern ment. There was, however, a. diffi culty hn connection with rails and fadtenings. If the Government de cided to abandon the principle ot calling public tenders in this in stance, on account of expediency, the work would be started forthwith? He would bring the matter before the Cabinet on Monday. The only difficulty that stood in the way was the lack of material and labour. He thought that they could .dt over the former, as when he visisted the eastern States he asked them to get. our contract' fixed as soon...
STATE-CONTROLLED MEDICAL SERVICE London, Dec. 14. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
STATE-CONTfOLLEO MEBICAL SERVICE " London, Dec. 14. a Sate-controlled medical service for the nation is one of the possi-' bilitie f .a .prolongation of the iwar-, The profe~slon is etready canvaesing' the prospects .of asfe such iner-, mention. At preien a qualified man may purchase a practice or en ter a partneorsip anywhere. 1' may, if he chooses, set up his door plate in any locality, and cast about to make a new practice for himself. The result, in peace time was that some districts, chiefly the poorer ones, were under-doctored while the more pleasant localities had some times more than a full complement. tWhen the war brought demands for many medical officers for the na.vy and army, the strain on the men left in practice among the civilians be came severe. "The public will certainly have to take an interest in the matter of its doctors," said Dr. Cotc, medical secretary to the British Medical] Association, to a press representa tive.

PROFITABLE SHIPPING INVESTMENTS London, Dec. 14. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
PKiFII2AULE SHIPPICIG IVEST MENTS London, Dec. 14. What may probably be regarded as the individual shipping invest ment which has yielded the largest profit during the war has just come to the knowledge of the London market. A few years ago a British steamer which had stranded on the South American ocast was sold, as she lay, to neutrals for £1500. The purchasers had her refloated and repaired, and employed her in trade. She has now been resold for£320,000, being 200 times the price paid for her as a wreck. This yield takes no account of the cost of salving and repairing her, but presumably these expenses would have been amp'y covered -by her earnings sinee she was salved, including two years cif extremely high freights. The present price" merely represents the current value of tonnage. Although it would be difficult to find a case to compare with the handsome return on this speculative investment of a few years ago, large profits are known to have been rea lised by Scandinavian own...
KANOWNA Kanowna, Jan. 22. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
KANOWNA Kanowna, Jan. 22. The continued dry weather is proving very serious to cattle own. era in this locality. It is reported on all sides that cattle are dying rapidly. Those in good condition appear to be more seriously affeot- ed by the dry feed than poor stock. One owner has lost over 30 head lately. and it is estimated that £1000 worth of stock has perished within the last few weeks in this ima mediate neighbourhood. The Gov- '. ernment dam has not previously been so low. It is urged that any further drain upon it should be dis allowed, as it ts the only supply for mines and residents in the event of a break in the supply from Kal goorlie. Some years ago fish were put in the dam, and are now numerousu but the emptying of the dam would mean their end. The water at Bullock Holes is re ported to have quite given out Ready's is also very low, so thbt travellers will be inconvenienced on Kurnalpi-road, and the questiol of an early rainfall is a matter bo great moment.

T,M.CI.A, MILITARY H ORK SKETCHES FROM THE FRONT. The following sketches give a sug Festion of Y.M.C.A., work in a hut in a village within a very few miles of the front line, where the condi tions are as different from those of the great base camps as those are. from home work. Picture a long, dimly-lighted hut, i with a queue of khaki-clad men stretching right back to the door, I and often beyond. The lights have 1 been a problem all night, and at last the primitive candle has come to, its own. In the dimness may be. made out flags and other efforts of decoration. For four hours the queue has continued, constantly re newed in spite of the strains of a concert from the adjoining marquee. where some 600 men roar ready ap plause.

Our head quarters are at Port Said but we are more often here (Alexandria) than there. We sail from here to various islands in the Mediterra nean, the names of which I had better not mention. Suffice to say, sometimes we have 30 hours' run, and at others from 30 to 80. I had no idea there were so many islands in the Mediterranean. and some of them are large. The last one we were at had a natural harbour of 150 acres or so. There were 30 vessels there at the time, arnd a few of them large-sized bait tlesliips, British, French, Russian and Italian.

VICTORIAN MINING INDUSTRY. "STAGGERING INCREASE INCOSTS." [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917
VICTORIAN ,INING INDUSTRY. "STAGGERING INCREASE IN COSTS." The president of the Victorian Chamber of Mines, Mr. E. C. I)ys son, in the course of a review of last year's operations, and- a~ forecast said -recently, as an explanation of the existing .depression, that for 60 years the cost' of labour and of material has been practically sta tionary, or with a downward ten dency, and the gradual improvement in mechanical effidiency- had kept pace with the increasing cost of min ing at greater 'depths. Since 1912, however, wages the principal item of expenditure, had increased nearly ho per cent., and the a4t of most materials had increased proportion ately. Were It not for,.a certain fasemination which the very uncer tainty of mining results had for many, the result of such a stagger ing increase in costs, without an opportunity.. of "passing it on," would naturally have been either to stop the industry or to lead to greater efficiency being sought. But as a low fiMciency paid when a mi...
