ADVANCE TO FARMERS Perth, Jan. 31. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
ADVANCE TO FARMERS Perth, Jan. 31. -.u the Legislative Assembly to Jay the Premier's notice of motion in regard to the payment of 3/ as a minmum on the 1917-18 wheat harvest was dealt with. Mr. Wilson -admitted that there was just a possibility that such a guarantee might cause a loss to the State of perhaps a million or so through the collapse of the market, owing, say, to the opening of the Dardanelles or any other eventuali ties. Still, he believed that there was little risk. The State was com ing into lane with the other States. He was already endeavouring to negotiate the sale of the whole of that crop to the Imperial' Govern ment. There were strong grounds for the hope that satisfactory ar rangements could be entered into by the Prime Minister. The move might be called socialistic. If it was so labelled, it would be because he was trying to safeguard the Em pire's so!diers. Mr. Scaddan strongly protested against the gamble at present. The consumer in Australia was paying for d...
EDNA MAY G.M. HIGH-GRADE ORE AT 385 FT. Westonia, Feb. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
EDNA MAY G.M. HI1GH-GRADE ORE AT 385 FT. Westonia Feb. 2. Strenuous attempts have been made durina the week by the "bears" to discountenance the value of Edna May shares. Such annoy ances "scripners" must expect it being fairly general knowledge that hundreds of shares have been over sold. The mine, however. is likely to beat the market. The developments at the. 385 ft. level are excellent. The face dies plays 17 ft. of high-grade ore, vii-, ible gold being a oommon occur rence. As to whether the reef lives to a greater depth little doubt ex iets. The depressed bore hole put_1 in by the Edna May Co. 90 ft. west of the present Deep Level shaft during the Edna May Company's previous option on the Deep Level property proved the presence of the gneissic granite channel to a depth of 800 ft. At this depth the Edna May Company's explotatory work terminated, but little doubt exists in the minds of the geolog~al ex perts that the reef will live to a considerable depth.

STATE TRADING CONCERNS A.L.F. DEPUTATION TO PREMIER. Perth, Feb. 2. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 6 February 1917
STATE TRADING CONCERgi S A.L.F. DEPUTATION TO PRE MIER. Perth, Feb. 2. IiL presentatives of the State Exe cutive of the A.L.F. waited upon the Premier, Mr. Wilson ,to-day, for the purpose of urging the continu ance of. the policy of State enter prise in regard to trading oonuerns. It was contended by the depu tation that the majority of the peo ple of the State favoured the sys tem of State trading concerns. Ean terprise on the part' of the State tended towards co-operation,and en couraged the people to pull to gether. If the adoption of this pol icy was ever necessary, it was at this time and until the war was finished. The best organised country would succeed, and the State would give an object lesson in organisa tion better than anyone else. The State should establish a jamn factory to utilise the surplus fruit which was at preseznt on the market. The idea of getting away from State en terprise was contrary to what was being done in the other countries. 'the workers got a better ...

'"AFIONAL .FEDERATION Melbourne, Jan. 30. Great .enthusiasm marked the opening of the establishment of the .Ballarat- branch of the National Federation which was opened by the Prime 'finister, Mr. Hughes, to aight. Many people were turned away from the Alfred Hall, which has a caspaecity of 4000, where the mieet.ina was held. Mr. Hughes said that because the Australian people had decided the conscription issue in one way by. a very narrow margin, they were not relieved of their obligations under the war to do the utmost of their abili ties. No--one could say that the war. prospect was changeL-material ly. for the better during 1916. They must gird up their loins, and do their part in the -etruggle. To say that this was a trade war was false, for it was nothing but a fight for life or death. If those who said that this was a trade war could look over the wall that surrounded this peace ful garden they called Australia, and look upon the dreadful world outside, they would rush to the ...
