Hon. D. Mackinnon on Individual Effort. THE LITTLE MAN AND THE WEAK MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 20 June 1914

Hon. D. Mackinnon on Individual Effort. THE LI 'TLE MAN AND THE WEAK MAN. Speaking on Monday evening last, at a meeting of the Prahran branch of the People's Liberal Party, the Hon. Donald Mackinnon, State Atto ney-General, said an effort was being made to try and curb and check every aspiration of the indivi dual, and to discourage progress in every possible way. The individual was discouraged from putting for ward his best efforts, ano if in Australia progress could be made on those lines, then all history was false and all experience vain. He would always be found on the side which gave the greatest freedom to the in dividual. Freedom and the liberty of the individual was, perhaps, liable to be abused, but it did not follow in consequence that the liberty of the individu d was a bad thing. Some times they heard of men being boy cotted, or driven by social influence into certain posioions into which they had no desire to go. Personally, he haj always been on the side of the little...

Mr Watt and the Balaclava Electorate. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 20 June 1914

Mr Watt and the Balaclava Electorate. -4- "Good men," it has been written. "often blemish their reputation by over acting sbme things." In this connection, judging by public oom: ments that are being made, one might imagine that Mr Watt, in resigning his position as State Premier to contest the Federal electorate of Balaclava, had strained at theatrical effect to the disadvan tage of his political fame. Cold facts, however, do not support this contention. Mr Watt is coning in to the Balaclava fold at the express desire of the Liberal Leagues. He will be warmly welcomed in Bala clava, and, furthermore, let us hope that he will make the salubrious and happy constituency his future home. Essendon, while inclined to be a trifle selfish on this paiticular point, should be consoled if they but remember that the s:ep Mr Watt is taking Is in the interest of a political cause he has at heart, and a desire to serve his country in a higher national sphere than hitherto. Mr Watt is a fighter in...

Benzol. as a _"Corrector" of Fuels. SGreat as. is. the attention that has been directed towards.. benzol as an alternative fuel for gasolene,; e? gineers would seem to have over loIoked the fact that it 1i a cor irt6i' "of the h'eavier distillates in general use. Th'lire isino doubt that the coal-tar: prodiict really ' is most valuable. It hli's given a great -deal of satisfaction alone, it is:truei but its 'continued use re- suits: in. comparatively -heavy" de-, posits. Combining-. benzol with' kerosene, on the other: hand, fin proves both- fuels, for it has been demonstrated by experiment that where only. mediocre results can be obtained with kerosene alone, the addition of from 10 to 50 percent. of lienzol materially improves both the etlicienicy ind the economy of the engine. A 'iossible explalta tion of the fact niight be found in the greater volatility of the benzol, which thus assists in the vaporisa tion of the -heavier oil, which in turn burns more cleanly, due to the great...
