WORKERS' COMPENSATION ACT, To the Editor of tho "Advertiser." Sla,-On looking over your issue of last Saturday I note that complaints had been made about the distribution of the insurance of theW\Vorkers' Compensation and that Councillor Byrne had stated that our letter was a piece of cheek, It is only fair to our firm that the public should understand the utterances of our Councillors, We there fore ask you to favor us by printing our letter, whict! we consider was only a fair business proposal, It is certainly true that we did not go cap in hand to the Council, a line we never adopt in our business, If Councillor Byrne judges all correspondence from a-biased standpoint like this one, the sooner he makes room for men capable of carrying on the town's business, the better. The letter is as follows : To the Mayor and Councillors of Williamstown. Strs,-In the local papers of Saturday, S24th111 ist., I notice that the Council has de cided to give the agency for the Workers' Compensatio...
SUNDAY SWIMMING MATCHES. To the Editor of the "Advertiser." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 21 November 1914
SUNDAY SWIMMING MATCHES, To the Editor of the "Advertiser." Si, -A protest was emphatically ex pressed at a recent meeting of the Men's Own against tile Swimming Club introduc ing swimming matches on Sundays. This protest lhas been given publicity, and its sentiments have been endorsed in the pub. lished letter from the pen of Mr C, F, Gecr, Of course, no objection is taken to the clean. ly and healthful custom of bathing in the " briny ; " but the Men's Own is desirous of sareguarding the Day of Rest from the ob. trusion of swimming matches -an innovation that would probably prove the precursor of other competitions. On the same principle that swimming matches would be permitted, regattas, footraces, horseraces, cricket, foot. ball, and bowling matches, the opening of theatres and secular concerts, etc., could claim recognition and sanction, But is our community prepared to allow such a dese cration of the Lord's Day ? I sincerely hope not, In the event of the Council taking no act...
