State Clothing Factory. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 2 May 1905
Btate Clothlnff Fattory. The Public Service Board has at last presented its report concerning the above. The report (some in teresting portions of which appear to have been smothered by the daily papers) is highly favorable to the State Factory. The Commissioners find that the quality of the factory's garments was very satisfactory. The State Clothing Factory suits have proved gopd value, the condi tions of the employees have been first-class, and the whole operations of the concern come out without any suspicion of shoddy work, or shoddy material. It is recommended that the factory be continued for an other two years, and| that all the Stats clothing be made therein. Refer ence is gently made to the swindles worked in some private contracts. Should the Government refuse to send all State work to the factory, it will defeat the recommendations of the Board. At the Inquiry the employees were represented by Mr. H. E. Holland.

The Minister buoyed himself up with the hope that Saturday would bring a ' rush of applicants.' The coercionists are getting in some fine work in Tonga, where^Jiey have started out to deal with all and sundry who do not meekly bow the neck to a foreign joke. The British High Commissioner recently made some drastic ' constitu tional ' changes all on his own, and a native document — a so:t of round robin — was pre pared ai:d taken around for signatures. The document read : We, the nobles and representatives of the people, having considered the ad dresses of the High Commissioner, are not willing that any officers or representatives of the British Gm eminent sl:a'l interfere in the internal administration of the king .lorn.
