THE Western Argus PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, FEB. 6, 1917. SWANK [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
r THE. WIesterr ;guus i PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, FEB. 6, 1917. SWANK There are some words, although not received in polite lexical society,. -yet deserve recognition for their extreme usefulness in expressing and suggesting meanings that would -take a dozen of their more polite relatives to exp'rin. Such a word is --Swank; not the Cockney vulgar ism meaning to boast, to gas un duly, but rather its Australian cousinm, which Australia's Slang Laureate says means affectation. 1 Australia lterns words as well as men. But really "swank" means much more than this. Listen to the word "Swank 1" What a world o meaning lies therein; it's like a s salad, so many indefinable shades of i expression, a dash of braggadocio, a few shreds of bluff, a quill of. oo quetry, the salt of conceit, the oil of confidence and the vinegar of impudence combine with scarce tan gible flavours to make' this perfect onomatopoeic word. "Swank" is an -adaptable word and may express the guise of high and ...

THE HOUSE OF C~ MIONS W.A. MEMBER'S IMPRESSIONS. Mr. A. Gilchrist, member for Gas coyne, who is now in iEngland on military service, in a letter to W.A., writes.:-"I went into London yes terday, and had the pleasure of see-- ing the House of Commons at work. L was a debate on the Irish prob lem. Asqu.th, Lloyd George. and Herbert Samuels (Ministers), and T. P. O'Connor, Jos. Devlin, and John Dillon (Nationalists), as well as somut lesser lights, spoke. It was a* fine experience. Saw George Reid come in and adjust his eye-glass be fore scanning the House and Gal lery Then he subsided into his corner 'seat on the fron.t Opposition bench, rather behind the Speaker's chair. "My chief impression was the re strained voices of the leading speakers. Devlin and a Labour member spoke lustily all the time, but Asquith, Lloyd George, T. P. O'Connor, and Dillon spoke almost conversationally. It turned out to be very effective in Dillon's case, for he suddenly .turned on a Union ist who had flipp...

THE RECRUITING CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
THE REORUITING CAMPAIGN. Australia is so far removed from the. scene of the European. conflie:c that large numbers of the people need to be consKantly reminded of the danger tlat menaces 'their liberty, their lites, their cherished inbtitutions, and all they hold most dear. The absence of any appear-. ance of danger has lulled many Aus tralians into a false sense of se-. curity. Since the destruction of the' Emden and of Admiral von Spee o squadron in the early months of the war. tlhe Pacific and Indian oceans have been free from enemy vessels. German submarines have not yet got to wi.'hin thousands of miles of Australia ; the sky is clear of Zep pelins amnd aeroplanes ; 'there is no prospect of a shortage of food; public amusements . continue as Susual we do not, like the people of France and. England,. come daily I into .contat . with Belgian refugees telling fearful stories of slave raids. and even. worse outrages. It is 1 -true that the war. has been brought home with oruel real...
FASHIONING THE NEW ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
FASHIONING THE NEW ENGL N i (By Lord Northcliffe, in the -London "Daily Mlail." December 11.) We have been making history in London during: this last week. We are fashioning a new England, an England that is well worth watch img. The silver lining to the cloud of war is the fact that more social ze forms have been accomplished in Great Britain in the two years and a half of struggle than in the pre. vious hundred years of peace. The burden of taxation has been increased on the shoulders best able to bear it-the very, rich. Our railways have come under Govern ment control. The sale of alcohol is becoming more and more regulat :-ed. The youth of the nation is be ing' trained in healthy military ex ercise' with effects observable by everyone. Labour is taking its. pro. per place in Government councils. Workers are being better remunerat ed. I could name a dozen other reforms, but chiefest of all is the linking up of our far-flung sister States into a United, Empire. frcm carious part o...
THE AFRICAN CAMPAIGN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
*1E AFRICAN CAIMPAGNI . The war has lasted two and a half yearl now, and not a few Austra, lians seem to be under. thee impres sion that the South African Union should have .utterly cleared the Ger mans out of Africa long ago, This impression arises .from want of, knowledge of the vastness of the contract, and the difficulties of cli mate and transport in campaigning over immense tropical areas of, forest and jungle, against very large and well organised forces of black troops, which have been Prussianly mnilitarised for nearly twenty years,' The South African Union has really accomplished wonders, and its last and most difficult contract-the ab-, solute extirpation of German domi-t nation in East Africa-is. drawing very near c. oompletion. . General Smuts, who undertook the work in March last year, goes to the Im perial War Conference - in London to demonstrate to the Allies that in any peace agreement. the German must be excluded from the southern half of the Dark Continent.

ROBBING THE GOLDFIELDS POLITICALLY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
ROBBING THE GOLDFIELDS POLITICALLY. Just now, when the minds and energies of the public are directed towards the war and war work, it is contemptible that the ruling set of politicians should be engaged in a scheme deliberately designcd to rob the goldfields of political power. The deed is all the more reprehen sible when it is remembered that thousands of the best of our fold fields citizens are now absent-tight ing at the front. The first Wilson Government became notorious by a i grossly unfair redistribution of seats I that it forced through both Houses. It was so great an outrage on jus- 1 tice that a righteously indignant public at the ensuing elections hurl. I ed the perpetrators from oflice. The. bill now before Parliament directs that a Commission should readjust the eleetoral boundaries, but the re strictions placed on the Commission are of such a nature. that the old bad system of redistribution as de vised by the first Wilson Govern ment must be retained. No ade quate all...

The Tasmanian revenue for Janu ;a .ny-.amounted to £584,168, an appa r,._rent decrease in the corresponding month of last year of £24,450, but this is accounted for by the Com Smonwealth payments for last month not being received until to-day.Had ?-,these payments been received in timze for inclusion in the month's i: receipts, there would have been an aictual increase of £3673.

SUNNY CORNER FIND. "NOTHING TO GET EXCITED ABOUT." [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
SUNNY CORNKER FIND. 'NOTHING TO GET EXCITED ABOUT." The new gold discovery is situated about seven miles from Sunny Cor ner, in the direction of Palmer's Lake, and not far from the head of the 'Turon River. It was found on the private lands of Mr. Alexander Gray and he and H. Budden and C. Williams' are the three prospec tors. They have christened their claim "The Verdun" writes the Bathurst correspondent of the "Aus Aralian Mining Standard."The r-ef has been traced pretty well through the 20-acre block of the prospec tors, but on the southern end, where it crosses Cop's Flat Creek, a good deal of overburden will need to be removed before it can be lo cated. No gold worth talking about was found, until the present open ing on the creek bank was put down, and it was. at this spot that some rich specimens of coarse gold were got, these being carefully stored at their camp, but which visitors are readily shown. The reef itself, a narrow one, 4 to 6 in. wide, rests on a well-defined foo...
