CODLIN MOTH AT THE ROYAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901
CODLIN MOTH AT THE ROYAL SHOW. './? . A correspondent writes: — ''Hie strongest and most strikin-i'commeritar.v on' the posi tion, of the codlin moth question .was seen;at the magnificent autumn show of the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural So ciety. The Government is spending some £700 a year under the Fruit Tests Act, chiefly iu connection with the codlin moth. The result up to the present is that we have little if any more authentic local knowledge of the pest than we had six years ago, the public :purse is the poorer, the applegrowers are irritated and angry, and the moth is so triumphant that it has invaded the choice exhibits of the royal show. Can there be any more absurd con dition of things than to have a law prohib iting the distribution of codlin mothinfect ed fruit by sale or otherwise, and at the same time to have infested articles dis played- on the show tables of the finest fruit show of Australia? In several dishes of apples and pears specimens had been cut by the...

THE MOTIVE POWER. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901
THE MOTIVE l'OWEll.. Simultaneously with the .introduction of- tlie new. priuting machinery there has been installed jn our.meelianical printing department 'one of the most powerful gas-engines in this part of Australia. It .wits made specially to mir .order by Crossley Brothers. The experience of the' office during the last few years has been all in a direction which virtually bears out tlie bold pro phesy uttered by Professor Sylvanns P. Thompson last, year when he said emphatically that, 'gas is the motive power of the future-.1^ and that to a very large extent it will . supersede steam in manufacturing and other ope rations within the limits of cities. .Steam is still kept up in 'TIir ltegls Tor' Office, but. the principal use to which as ;i rule it will in future be ap plied will be the drying of the mats for the stereotyping process. The new gas?engine . has a capacity of sixty, brake, horse-power — which means that it can overcome the same resistance by n brake as a steam - e...

THE INVENTION OF PRINTING MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901
THE INVENTION OF PIUXTING MACHINERY. It is interesting to turn to the his torical events which produced such a: remarkable piece of 'apparatus -as- the thrwvroll sti'aiffht-lino nrintinar ma chine. These events owed their origin partly to two or three Englishmea. partly to several Americans, and . in some degree at least to an; ingenious Italian. 'Robert Hoe. the -'founder -'of the famous- firm, was born in 17S1 in Leicestershire, and was the son of a farmer, who bound him to the trade of carpenter. Being, determined --to emi grate to America., unsaved up and 'pur- chased- bis indentures, arter.whicb-.be was soon' in New York, in company w-itb two brothers-in-law., ojip of whom had ' inven.ted.a new kind of hand press for printing.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND THE WINE INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901
WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND THE WINE INDUSTRY. A correspondent writes:— 'The Govern ment of Western Australia are about to perpetrate the mistakes of the eastern colo nies by erecting a building for a central winery and distillery, equipped at a cost of £10,000, and with the intention of leas ing it at a low rental to any proposed com pany who will take it. They may find themselves in the same box with the Vic torian Government, who erected a viticul tural college at Rutherglen at an outlay of upwards of £20,000, only to find that for the last three years there was a staff of officials, but practically no wine or stu dents; and the building has been closed for want of support. Private enterprise in South Australia has supplied the wants of small growers by making cellars and pur chasing grapes- and new* wine in districts as required, and the Government of West ern Australia could' better spend £10,000 in guaranteeing a company whose business will be to make the concern profitable alike to...
