IN THE BILE EANS FOR ILOUSNESS TALK OF THE WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

PALK OF THE WEEK. •.With the Meat Strike settled and over, it is difficult to see what has been gained either by masters or imen. For over four weeks the strike lasted. The public were put to sad inconveni ence. The men lost many thousands of pounds in wages. The employers lost, many thousands in loss of trade, and now nobody is much bet ter off. Ji the demands of th;; men in the be ginning had been as moderate as the terms they accepted in the end there would never have been a strike. Their hours have been reduced to 19i per week, and there is to be an appeal against the award at once. Under that award carters receive £2/5/ a week ; and Judge Peydon, who is President of the .Arbitration Court,, lias de clared in his cost-of-living report tliat £2/8/ is the minimum which should be paid in any industry. He also invited those who received less to apply to the court for a revision oi their awards. It is deal" that an appeal to the court would have brought the butchers relief long ago. ...

Another Dressing Down. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

Another Dressing Down. The Australasian Women's Association returns ■to the attack at its fourteenth annual confer >ence. It concerns itself chiefly with eugenici and the wickedness of women's dress. So far •as men are concerned, the latter subject is ivorn out. There is no longer any feeling of consternation in man's .heart in the presence c# a. diaphanous skirt; hut women are more im placable, especially elderly women, so the asso ciation finds the present fashion indecorous andi the wearers lost to all sense of decency. The most indignant speaker declared it was degrad ing to respectable women to see others who did not -wear sufficient clothing to cover the body. In some Eastern countries it is considered even more degrading if the women do not wear suf ficient clothing to cover the face. "Disgraceful sights are to be seen at St Kilda," said an other member. That's a bald statement) which means nothing. Where are the disgraceful sights to be seen ? How are t.hey to be seen, an...

KEY-NOTES Botha's Blunder. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

Botha's Blunder. "Billy T.'1'—Tom Mann has gone to South Africa to take up the cause of the Labour unions. It is probable he will be joined by Jim Larkin, the best fighting Labour leader in Bri tain to-day. This is the answer to Botha's act sin deporting the Transvaal Labour leaders. It is a cMBtance, and the result will be watched with keenest interest •.throughout the Empire. The men Botha deported are j-.nid spirits beside agitators and organisers like Mann and Larkin. Mann is an extreme Socialist, and Larkin a reckless enthusiast who outstrips such feeble spirits as Ramsay M'Donald, leader of- the Eng lish Labour Party, and has antagonised tnem by his opposition to'their patient methods. Ap parently the hope is that these two will sting Botha into further acts, such as are more ap propriate to an unlimited monarchy than to the head of a modern democracy, and so bring about a tremendous uprising of Labour; and Botha, being a military man rather than- a cute diplomat, will probabl...

The Difficulties of Mr. Watt. IE anyone is watching the Stale political situation with an impartial mind lie must be getting great, fun from it. It is as good as a play.

The latest news is that mem bers are breathing threats and promising dis . aster in June. June 5s the month in which tha State Parliament -vill, if political weather is calm, meet for its final session. Bub the m!ere fact that the malcontents have fixed June for their death-dealing foray show.3 that they have the old habit of counting unhatched chick ens.

CURRENT NOTES. Federal Issues—The People Must Decide. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

CURRENT MOTES. Federal Issues—The People Must Decide. The habit of looking for the Ferleval elections through binoculars persists in this State. New South Wales is getting to £'ips witi the prob lems presented ; but Victoria is looking so &U' ahead that it is missing what is quite near. Therefore, is it necessary to say that the elec tions in. June, July or August will be tought on almost the same issues jaised iu the fight of last year. No new issue of serious import ance has arisen since than. For a time it looked >as if the Liberals were to test their supporters severely by sacrificing defence effici ency to economy and by introducing class regiments into the citizen aimy. Happily, the so-called retrenchment in the Defence Depart ment is nothing more than an attempt to catch the votes of those frightened by the de fence bills. Ministers are beginning ' to boast that thny have added a million and a half to the defpnoe expenditure, and they are :-o silent about the "nati...

Rational Acclimatisation. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

Rational AccI imatisation. Melbourne on a north-wind day looks. .little different from the Bleiba'irne of the dark, cold winter. More than half the people dress in wintry colours. Only women with parses and men with sense suit their garb to the bright light and. strong heat of the summer. When one as:<s.for a reason, one is confronted with a fact that has done more to cause discomfort in Aus tralia than has any other factor in A ustralian life. This is our habit of conservatively copy i • Brit sh customs. We ;>uild, Iress and eat according to British ideas : we try to make British social habits conform with a tropical arid sub-tropical climate ; v/e fail to see that we need not act as if we were in Great Bri tain simply because w« are a British, settle ment. H. A. Hunt, Director of the W&ather Bureau, has been i telling some home truths about unreasonable attempts to pei petuate snow and-rain customs in a heat-and-monsoon coun try.

Mr. Deakin to Court Our America Cousins. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

Mr. Deakln. to Court Our America 1 Cousins. If Mr. Deakin goes to America as High Com missioner he will spend £10,000 a year. As this will be the only objection raised to his appointment, it is as well to begin by saying that "(Punch" does not sympathise with the self-pitying taxpayer who hoivJs about an addi tional "burden" upon his shoulders. Say, for argument's sake, the cost of the American High Commissioner's offices amounts in Lime to £20,000 a year. Rleid went to London to spend £10,000 a year, (ind was soon spending £27,000, so £20,000 even for the careful Mr. Deakin may not "be too much. This will be slightly less than one penny per head oi Austra lian population per annum. The argument of cost falls back, defeated, with its advocate humiliated. Not only is the argument paltry, as shown by this analysis ; it is also mean and unworthy. We are a young people in a virgin country, isolated from the great centres of the world. We have goods to sell, interests to protect, plans f...

WOOL, GRAIN AND PRODUCE. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Punch — 12 March 1914

TUESDAY. The chief feature of the wool trade was the open ing of the second series of auctions in London last week. There was a crowded attendance, including a record number of buyers from the United States, and competition for all classes of wool was keen, the selection of crossbreds especially attracting attention for their excellence. The market might he almost described as excitcd, the struggle between the opposing sections imparting a degree of ani mation to the proceedings that has not been seen of late. As compared with the closing rates of -the January sales, prices of morinos show an ad vance of 3d. to Id. per lb. This movement, of coursc. is reflected in the Bradford tops market, the cabled quotations of which are from id. to 3d. per lb. higher on the week ; but the advance has checked business. The next sales to be held on this side will be in Brisbane on '24th inst., when, assuming favourable weather for the shear ing that is now in progress, a fair supply of new clip sh...
