RANDOM REFLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 12 June 1915

RANDOM REFLECTIONS. (.BY WANDEREK). The Austrians seem to be throwing in the towel whenever and wherever 'tis pos s'ble. Some of the latest batches are ra ther startling, if reliable. Alas for Wil helm's cobbers, but rx» one can blame them much, even though their action is not strictly honourable. They were probably gulled by Wilhelm's 'kid stakes,' and good enough for him, say most folk. « * -!? si' ?!?

SHOP ASSISTANTS' UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 12 June 1915

SHOP ASSISTANTS' UNION. The annual meeting c\ the Lithgow and Wallerawang Shop Assistants' Union is to be held at Wallerawang to-day (Saturday;, when a 'bus will carry Lithgow members out. The balance-sheet shows' that the re ceipts for the year ending May 31 1915, totalled £53 8slld, and the expenses £33 17s, leaving a balance of £19 lls lid, of which £15 18s lid is represented as bal ance in bank. In his annual report, the sec retary, Mr. ,H. .Walker, points out that the membership increased from 67 to 70 for the 12 months, and but for* the fact of the war breaking out the increase would have been very much greater. Any increase at all is satisfactory. Mr. Walker urges all to take a greater interest in the union and render all the assistance possible to the executive. The full text of the report will be found in a later issue of the 'Democrat.''

THE HOUSING PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 12 June 1915

THE HOUSING PROBLEM. The housing problem is undoubted ly very acute in Lithgow — probably there is no town in the Common wealth where accommodation is so hard to secure. Particularly is this the case with respect to married couples with families. House rent is at a premium, and the landlord with a couple — or even a couple of score — of houses need not have a moment's uneasiness of. mind with respect to tenants. Men and women in search of houses are to be met with at every turn. Of course it is only to be expected, with such a condition of things, that many new houses are being erected. But the population of the town is increasing at such a rate that it is impossible to build re sidences quickly enough to accommo date half those in search of dwel lings. The consequence is that the hotels and boarding houses are fil led to overflowing:, and in many cases privatae families are taking in one or more boarders. Houses in which two families half the rooms and share the kitchen uses, are q...

THINGS WE'D LIKE TO SEE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 12 June 1915

THINGS WE'D LIKE TO SEE. By various Contributors. The S.A. Factory unanimous over the se cond sfhift question. Rumour has it that a number of employees would like matters to * go on as now. It is only fair to say that the engineers strongly ? favour the change. Itis said that a number of workers a*t the Factory prefer to pile up the 'almighty dol lar' to working overtime,, regardless that more and still more rifles are wanted, and despite the fact that soldiers are being sacrificed through lack of munitions. Shame! A finer civil service officer than the late Charles H. Caswell, late supervising officer „ of the Lithgow sanitary scheme. Mr. Cas well was a man of great. ability, whose de signs for the Federal Capital was a muca more practical scheme than Griffin's, the American. As a town planner he was most enthusiastic, and having a liking for Lith gow, was very desirous of seeing the young town of Lithgow modernised, and had hop s of seeing something practical done in hous ing the ...

RAILWAY STATION FARCES. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 12 June 1915

RAILWAY STATION FARCES. Possibly there are many railway station farces in Australia, but we venture to think the primest farce is that which is to be found in the town of Lithgow. Here we have two sta tions only removed a few hundred yards from one another — one named Lithgow and the other Eskbank — and the Commissioners seem to per petuate them — judging by every day happenings— for their own amuse ment and the mystification and incon venience of the. travelling public, add ed to the temporary dislocation of jnany of the business firms of Lith gow; to say nothing of the loss of time and money to a great many in habitants of this thriving centre. It is at least some consolation to know that the Commissioners themelves are beginning to realise that the time is approaching when alterations should be made. At the last meeting of the Lithgow Town Council a letter ?was read from, the Commisioriers wherein it was stated that extenive alterations were proposed to be ef fected to the railwa...

RIFLE GUN [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 12 June 1915

[?] (Notes by 'Aperture.' Shooting in the Wright Cup competition on Saturday last, A. Beljon put up the splendid score of 69 out of a possible 70. He secured the possible 7 bulls at 600 yards, whilst at 500 yards he just missed it by one point, the last shot being an inner. I. Basser also scored the possible at 500 yards, but did not do near so well at the longer range, his score being only 29. Harry Rowe, of the Small Arms Factory 'Club, put up a fine performance, all his shots .at the 500 yards finding the black. At the 600 yards his score was 33, making a total ?of 68 — two points off the possible 70. The old veteran,' Len Smith, was also in .good trim, scoring 33 at each range — total €6. There were a host of other scores ovei -S0. The day was not an ideal one for rifle f hooting, on account of there being a chang ' ing light and a tricky wind to contend with. Next Saturday another stage of the Wright Cup will be fired, under service condition? at the t,wo and three hundred yard...

LITHGOW THISTLE V. LITHGOW TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 12 June 1915

LITHGOW THISTLE V. LITHGOW TOWN. 'A good, hard game resulted in a win for i~e town team. A large crowd witnessed real good football from both sides, but if the Scots had scored in the second half, a draw would have been a more fitting result. Had it not beeu for the sound defence of the town team, the tables may have turned. However, this is the first game and win for the town boys, and may good luck go with them. It was disappointing to see that botii the teams were not at full strength, Glenden ing of the Tuistles being on the sick list made the defence a little weaker; the for wards wore good except for the centre posi tion, which was filled by Green. He could never see an opening between the Thomp son brothers, who played some great foot ball. Jack Denbam, at outside right, did some good work, and Valentine was the pick of the defence. The half-backs were just fair. Burbridge, the full-back for the town, is a new addition to Lithgow Soccer, and play ed a very good game, always t...
