HARBOURS ICEBOUND Copenhagen, Jan. 28. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917

]IARBOURS ICEBOUND. Copenhagen ·Ja . :: B Number's c4 Danish and Swedieh harbours on the Cattegat and" the Baltic are icebound, and-it is fewa?d that all traffic will be stopped if th" cold continue. London, Jan. 29. The Exchange Telegraph Agency publishes an article written by Lieu-' tenant Puaux, formerly editor of the Paris "Temps," and now serving on General Foch's staff. Lieutenant Puaux points out that the old tradition of winter quarters no longer exists, and also that Ger many's internal condition does not permit her to wait for the Entente's exhaustion. She is certainly fever- I ishly preparing for a great effort. Her only hope of victory is a stun ning blow. It is useless for her to keep her troops back for the autumn owing to the spectre of famine, He adds:-"We must expect victory or .t confession of defeat. Germanyi must lose the game if she does notI obtain a satisfactory decision be-i fore June." Lieutenant Puaux rejects the idea of German offensices towards Salo nika,...

DESTINY OF AUSTRALIA Melbourne, Jan. 29. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917

.[H T.iT iF AUSTRIALIA -Melbourne,' Jan. 29. Importanit speeches were delivered to-day by Federal and State poli ticians at the annual luncheon of the Australian Natives' Association at the Exhibition. The Prime Minister, Mr. Hughes, was the main attraction. and when he arose to respond to the toast of "The Federal Parliament," he was received, with loud and prolonged 'applause, together with much wav ing of handkerchiefs... He said that while the- whole commerce of the world was dislocated and millions of men had been withdrawn from production, yet. in Australia they had been able to go on, he- was go ing. to say, almost unmindful of the mighty conflict in which their own destinies were to be determined. This showed that they were the most favoured nation, and it was due to the mighty overpowering British .fleet, and the power of the allied armies. They were behind a living wall of men, in which they could see their own Australian soldiers not the least effective.' But for that liv...

POLITICAL GOSSIP Perth, Jan. 29. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917

POLITICAL COSSIP - Perth, Jan. 29. The Governm?ent has virtually decided that the bill for the Sup pression of SBetting will be dropped altogether. More than one of the Ministers has openly expressed himself in favour of this course.- A half-hearted attempt may be made in the Assembly to remove the amendment that Mr. Jenkins sue ceeded in getting the Legislative Council to insert in it, but the amendment is likely to be more strongly supported in the Assembly than it was in the Council. At the end of the session the position as I regards bookmakers will be "As you were." I The Premier and Minister for Mines are both extremely sorry they ever talked of a mining con :ference. It is six months ago since Mr. Wilson and Mr. Robinson sug 'gested it, and it has not yet been held. nor is it likely to be held for some months, if it ever is held. It seems the idea of the conference was taken up by the goldfields people with enthusiasm and they desire to make it a. big affair. They wish that p...

THE BATTLER GOLD MINE. AN IMPROVEMENT REPORTED. Westonia6 Jan. 31. Mr. T. Taylor, manager of the1 Battler and Great Battler gold min ing leases at Westonia reports two jimportant developments. During the progress of sinking in the main bafts, now down to a depth of 182 ft., a new shoot of valuable ore was encountered at 180 ft. The vein at point of intersection measures 15 in. 3in width and holds out indications of increasng in .width as greater depth is reached. The ore is highly mineralilsed and eamples of the quartz, handled by the writer, car ried coarse free gold and a heavy percentage of pyrites. The mieral contents of samples broken for assay had- not been as cetained at time of writer's visit. If the reef bulks within a quarter of the value of the stone displayed the1 development should prove of con siderable importance. In e addition to this cheering dis covery in the -main shaft another development of note has occurred an a recently-started prospected shaf? 300 ft. south o...

THE LABOUR SPLIT [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917

THE LABOUR SPLIT Mr. J. E. Dodd, M.L.C.. com menting on the present division on the Labour party, said he had hoped that the chief executive body of the Labour movement in this State would have stood by the principles of democracy and submitted the trouble to a free and unfettered bal lot of the rank and file for decision. Had this course been adopted the Labour movement in this State would have preserved an unbroken solidarity. He had not the slightest doubt how such a ballot would have. rc-ulted. The record of Messrs. Pearce, Lynch and party was too. well and favourably mknown to war rant expulsion. On the goldfields aatl.ýns riptionists united with consoriptionists in resenting the despotic abuse of power by various bodies. When unionists began to realise how the principles of their * movement were deliberately Rfouted in order to down men against whom no word of suspicion had ever rest ed they would very soon effect an alteration. "One instance out of many may be mentioned," he ...

THE ART OF SELF-DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917

THE ART OF SELF-DEFENCE. The heroes of the Ring, one-time idols of a British public. which, de spite its Zharitable and humnani tarzan instincts, loves a fight, are cast into deep shadow in tihis time of world warfare. When millions of men are fighting to the death under the severest privations and the hardest conditions, no one has time or inclination to spare for combats a la Queensberry, with skin fea ther or any other sort of gfove-e except in the great Republic. Strange to say, the country which is "too tired to fight" in real ear nest, is almost the sole surviving active patron of the prize ring; and that, notnvithstanding its profes sional President's crack-brained schemes for a League of Peace, to be achieved without victory. Yet lovers of the "noble art" of self de fence with Nature's weapons keep a sympathetic eye open for news of how Carpentier is getting on in the trenches, and. now'hear with regret that France's middleweight chaim p io has been finally "knocked out" by ...

A LADY'S LETTER J! My dear Mary, It is the delightful lit.tle nothings of fashion which make a woman lock perfectly and uncommonly dressed. Two friends in playful rivalry may order dresses which are exactly alike-not a pin's head of difference. They may wear these dresses in the same way and at the same time, and yet it will oertainly happen that one of these friends will at the last moment add a litt-e noth~ng-a tiny rosebud thrust into the folds of the collar, an uncom mon- buckle to keep in place the re bellious belt ribbons or a curious'y fashioned rosette to finish off the toeb of the high-heeled shoes--and it is more than likely that this care less little nothing will set the seal of success on the toilette. People a:e fond of- saying that the Pari siennes are the best dressed women in the wor'd, and in a sense this is true,- but it would be more correct to as.v that the Parisiennes, more than other women, are fully awake to' the importance of trifles in dress, in manner, in t...
