THE MINING CONFERENCE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

1 THE MINING CUO1FERENCE. .:To the Eitor... Air,-'From all '.appearances the expected good residlt4 are not -likely to eventuate from the Miners' Con ference presently to be held at Kalgorie. The Minister has ex tended a generaesort of invitation, but no one seems to take him seri ously excepting "pavement mining engineers,' and the Miners' Union. The former are out to find means to boom wild eat propositions, and tae latter to air grievances, which might ,be settled,between the Chamber of Mines and themselves. ADy way, the conference is no place for boom eters or discussion of a never-ending industrial worry. The gathering should be composed of genuine min ing men, whose main object should be to show how to open new fields, and how to work them. There should be no need to confine atten tion to more rioh,free miing, gold bearing ore.We mostly know -enough about that. The subjects of earliest 4d5ousasion should be:--(1) Bandling og low grade propositions ; (2),cheap treatment of auri...

t EONORA. 'the Great Weiern mine,Wilson's Patch, after laying abandoned for some time past, has again been taken up -as a gold-mining lease, the new pppllcant being Mr. R. Hastedt, a well-known prospector of this dis triot (writes the "Leonora Miner"). The mine was originally worked by a Queensland syndicate, who equip poed the property some 18 years ago with a 10-head mill, but after a run o- a few months the mine was abandoned and the battery e moved.

FAREWELL TO DEPARTING SOLDIERS ADDRESS BY MR. WALTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

FAREWELL 10 DEPARTIHN SOLDIERS ADDRESS Bi MR. WALTER. The Kalgocrlie Town Hall was filled to the doors ea--.day after noon on the occasion of a farewell entertainment held in honour of soldiers who were leaving f'c-r the front. The gathering was under the presidency of the Mayor, Mr H W. Davidson. The principal address was deliver ed by Mr. W. A. G. Walter, R.M.. who remarked at the outset that in glancing at the assemblage he was reminded of the remark of the Bishop of Kalgoorlie a few Sundays previously. The Bishlp had said that, as a rule, the departing sol diers did not attend those functions, but perhaps were represented by proxy. Personally, he thought that those who attended contributed to the best of their ability to the patriotic funds, and at the same time spent their Sunday aftern,vons in the pursuit of rational enjoy ment. He considered that more could be done in patriotic efforts if, intead of constantly having farewells to departing soldiers, they *:.ecasionally had we...

LABOUR SOLIDARITY LEACUE BECOMES BRANCH OF NATIONAL LABOUR PARTY. CRITICISM OF A.L.F. STRONG .OPINIONS EX PRESSED. :The newly formed Goldfields Labour League met at the Half-way Hall Sunday morning and chang ed its name to that of the National Labour Party, besides discussing means for the promulgation of the ideas of that organisation. The President, Mr. J. Boyland, said that no reply had been received from Mr. Tudor to the league's tele gram urging all members of the La, ou party in Parliament or other wise to work for the party's solidar. ity, an omission which he re garded as a slight to the goldfields miners after the help they had given eastern States unionists in the past. He apologised for the- ab sence of Messrs. J. Cornell, Ar dagh, and Mr. Dodd, M's.L.C., the latter and Mr. Cornell being at Cool gardie in connection - with the re cruiting scheme.

BOXING. THE AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

BOXIWG. THE' AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION. The boxing expert of the "New York World" says:--"We may just naturally have to forgive Les Darcy for taking leave of Australia :on the good ship Hattie Luckenbach with America as-his goal. Of course, Australians will upbraid Darcy bit terly for being a shirker, since ine bas evaded army duty for his coun try, and there will be a. little feeling against him even in happy-go-lucky America.-- Shirker - or no shirker, we want to see him fight. We'd feel the same way about George. Carpentier if he deserted the ranks to have a whirl -at the trade he - loves. Carpentier, however, has . had two long years of actual service, while Darcy is ducking it entirely. Perhaps when- Darcy gets here, if he ever does, he will try to win' thec undisputed middle-weight champion ship -of -the world,- and then--well, Lester might go back home, or en - list in a Canadian regiment. There can be no doubt .about his coming. - Harry Marsden, a well-known book maker of Australi...

FLOTATION OF MINING COMPANIES. GOVERNMENT SUPERVISION ADVOCATED. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 30 January 1917

FLOTATION OF MINING COMPANIES. GOVERNMENT SUPERVISION ADVOCATED. It is only natural the proposal to organise a permanent tribuna to sift proposals concerning the flo?a tion of new companies, after the lapse of the provisions 'of the War Precautions Act, should meet with opposition in interested quarters. Indeed, the very fact of opposition in certain directions furnishes prima facie evidence of the desirability of action. The whole reason for pro ceeding upon the linles suggested in this column last week (writes the "Leader"), is to safeguard the inter eats of the public by placing' a curb upon the rapacity of company pro moters.. It would be strange, in deed, if gentlemen of that ilk gave support to a measure which must o1 necessity restrict their operations. As a matter of course, the large proportion of propositions for the formation of new concerns are framo ed upon reasonable lines from the point of view of those whose sub Scriptions it is desired. to obtain. Equally, df' cours...

NATIONAL FEDERATION 1 Adelaide, Jan. 25. i The President of the Liberal Union of South Australia. Mr. A. W. Piper, K.C. speaking on behalf of that body, said to-day that lie nselcomed evidences in Federal poli tics of any attempt at unity, but went on to comment "upon a col lateral movement which has arro gated to itself the adjective 'na ional' in the hope, no doubt, that it will be taken at its own nominal valuation." He went oni: "As a political or ganisation, the so-called National Federation is neither national norI a federation. Its inception bears none of the true marks of a genuine national movement. One fact is sufficiently evident of the way in which the inaugural meeting was promoted. Gentlemen were pre sent from Queensland and West Australia who must have had sev eral days' notice of the date of meeting, but up to a fairly late, hour on the day prior to the. meet ing, not one South Australian Lib eral had had any notice, or any inm I vitation to attend.

SENER AL WAR NEWS Loridon, Jan. 21. Sightseers flocked to the scene of the East London explosion on Sun day, re-calling the pilgrimages to Cuffley and P9tter's Bar, when the German Zeppelina were wrecked, but instead of the jubilation shown when the Zeppelins were downed, sorrow and sympathy were' manifest everywhere. Those who were per mitted within the military cordon, stood aghast at the awful spectacle of desolation.: Many sought out the homeless, and friends and rela-. tives provided temporary- shelters. The search parties continued: their gruesome task all day long, amid the ruins, which resembled, a Bel gian town after the Hun bombard ment., It was pathetio to see fami lies stubbornly refuse to leave their ruined homes, clinging to their treasured household goods.
