The Eight Hour Committee [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 4 September 1915

The Eight Hour Committee On perusing the report of the meeting of the Eight Hour Committee, held on Thurs day night, one ia forced to the conclusion that either a good deal has been left un said or that too mucfc had been said. ' xuc i;ua*?i uicy\;MDOAvrA.i woo nuxnuui bire wi ficial luncheon would take plaoe on the Sat urday sight or on the Monday. We have no brief for either night, and many argu ments were put forward, pro. and con., but as the vote was taken in a small meeting, we might be pardoned if we point out a thing or two. What ia the object of the de monstration? For what purpose is it osten sibly held? Are the profits to be devoted to any particular object, or is *t just a fss t'val— a 'high holiday,' in fact? The first object is to endeavor to realise the ambition of nine out of ten men you meet — a legal ised eight hour day. Well and good. Is that all? No. The profits (and this isjwhat 'should mostly concern the delegates) are supposed to be devoted to paying off the i...

THE NEW HARVE8TER AND AGRICUL TURE IMPLEMENT FACTORY. We mentioned in our columns a few weekB ago that a large Victorian manufac turer of harvesters and agricultural mach inery contemplated starting operations in L'thgow. Some local folk pooh-poohed the idea, but we are pleased to say that the master is rapidly coming to a head. Instructions have been given that five acres of land, close to the railway line, so that a s'ding can be put in, must be bought at once, and very shortly operations will be commenced.

ROBBING PETER TO PAY PAUL. The roads overseer, thinking, no doubt, that he could save expenses, took Borne of the footpaths out by Dunn's Corner and UBed it as blinding to cover metal. Unfor tunately he left a drop of about a foot, which leaves this particular part in a dan gerous condition. See to this, Mr. Works Overseer. Also some road metal has been laid down on Bowenfels road and no blind ing, and the' consequence is that all vehicles dodge by on either side.

GOOD-BYE TO THE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 4 September 1915

GOOD-BYE TO THE RAILWAY. Chief Porter MacDonald, of Eskband goods shed has severed his connection, with the Railway Department. He starts at the Small Arms Factory at once. He will be greatly missed, for he always considered he did two men's work. We think It a shame that after years of service, a man of MacDonald's calibre should be allowed to go for the sake of a few shillings a week.

THAT PATRIOTIC MATCH. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 4 September 1915

THAT PATRIOTIC MATCH. (To the Editor.) Sir, — Kindly allow, me space in your valu able paper to pen a few lines in answer to a letter signed by W. A. Armstrong, which appeared in your issue of the 28th inst. Firstly he accuses the Railway Club of be ing 'squibs,' but this is only 'Gordon talk'' ror noDoay taKes tnem seriously. Secondly, he accuses us of being afraid of the Gor dons. The reason why, is best known to- himself, as the Railways were never at any time frightened of them, and never will be while there is a Gordon team. The condi tions of this much talked about patriotic match called for the stakeB (5/- per man) to be paid over on the Friday night, falling which no match. Now, Mr. Editor, seeing that the Gordon men out in no aDoearannp on the Friday night, (which I have from the h take-holder himself), one could hardly lay all the blame on the Railway club. If the patriotic spirit is so pronounced in the Gor dons, why did they not instruct their dele gates to attend the de...

A Prayer With Every Stitch. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 4 September 1915

A Prayer With Every Stitch. It is indeed wonderful how even the old est and the weakest can do their little bit to make the path of our soldier boys lighter while they are fighting our cause away in the Dardanelles. An instance of .this is shown by an old lady named Mrs. Davis, of McKellar's Estate. Feeling she would like to do something she commenced to knit, but what was troubling her was, she wanted a Lithgow boy to have the work of love she was engaged in. Day after day she knitted, and knitted, and knitted, until at last three lovely pairs of socks appeared on the scene. She confided her trouble to Mrs. Lowndes, the wife of one of our popular postmen, and her fears were dispelled. Mr. Lowndes presented them to a Litbgow lad (Douglas Young) on the occasion of his go ing into camp. Mrs. Davis said, with glow face and glistening eyes: 'With each stitch I made I prayed that God would bring back the Lithgow lad who wore them safe and sound. And I believe Go dansws prayers.' May her ...

A Trip to South Australia. (By FRED. W. PERRY.) I left Sydney for Port Augusta, South Aus tralia on Saturday, July 24, by T.S.S. Ka tooniba, the S.S. Canberra also left at the earae time, and there was a good deal of speculation as to which boat would do the tr'p in the quickest time, aa they are rivals. The Katoomba showed the Canberra a ?clean pair of heels, and had to wait some time for daylight before she coul dgo up the I Yarra. Melbourne is rather quiet at present '' except for the recruiting campaign, in which a good deal of Ingenuity and interest is displayed. Adelaide has improved con siderably. The electric trams are a decid ed improvement on the old horse trams. The present system is considered to be the moat up-to-date in the Southern Hemis phere. South Australia is doing her part in the recruiting movement, and almost wherever you go in Adelaide you run across Bquads of recruits.' I was much struck with their happy and contented appearances. On the way from Adelaide to ...
