The State Teachers. BEST PAID IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
The State Teachers. BEST PAID IN THE WORLD. " I have had a number of letters and complaints in rt'gaid to the shortage of teachers for the smaller schools/' (says the Minister for Education 'Mr. Caimichael). " At present a large number of schools have no teachers, and others to a certain extent understaffed. But this is a recur ring.trouble, that crops up, at any rate, twice a year, on account of the number of resignations of teachers at different periods. These vacancies cannot be filled till a bunch of teachers is sent out from the two training colleges. Just now there are about 70 small schools for which teachers are not available and we could give employment to about 50 assistants in other schools. Next month, however, there will be go students available, who have completed the Department's short course of training. Those will be mostly to the smaller schools, thus getting over one of the difficulties for some months. However, before the next batch has com pleted its course of t...

In And Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Readers. TRAMS, TRAFFIC, & ENGINEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
In And Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Headers. 1 (By T.C.D.) ! TRAMS, TRAFFIC, & ENGINEERS. Tlio traffic of Sydney is one of tho most pressing questions the au thorities have to deal with. It is some time since the trams ceased to bo equal to the demands upon them, and at certain hours ol' the day not even by t,ho most 'dangerous and uncomfortable overcrowding are they able to cope with the re quirements of tho traffic. Running them underground is the only one way by which their capacity can bo safely increased. There is no reason, it is contended, why the traf tie should be restricted to the sur face. "If such was the case in Lon don, where four million passengers per week are carried underground, the block would ho hopeless, as it soon will bo in Sydney, unless ad ditional accommodation is provided.' The question was brought up in the Assembly during the week, and the Premier's reply was that tho Gov ernment is waiting to get expert advice from London. To thi...

BLOWN OVJiK, Auotlior nine-days' -wonder lias gone the way o£ all predecessors of the same family—the crickot trouble lias blown over. The Board of Con- 1 trol is convalescent, and all the ' talk of court work, and of sending an independent team to England lias I played itself out. The team is well 1 011 its way to England, with the 1 send-off words of the 1'rime Minis ter still ringing in its collective ear, > to tho effect that after all winning I the ashes is not tho one and only object of the trip. It was just as ! well, after passion hud gone out, and reason returned, that some one of standing should dovetail that uioughtful remark in at tho finish of the stormy proceedings. A not iceable feature of the whole game was that while the so-called old bri gado were being beaten in the rec ent' test matches there was a public outcry for new blood, "Givo young er players a chance." Then followed a cyclone because six young play ers were given "a. chance, liut the public seldom know...
ANOTHER PRESSING PROBLEM. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 30 March 1912
ANOTHER PRESSING PROBLEM. The parliamentary inquiry into the liigh rents question lias accu mulated a vast amount o£ evidence, yet it shows no signs of weakening. So l'ar it lias demonstrated what most people already knew — that houso rents have gone up along with a general. rise in wages and the cost of . necessities. Giving evidence 011 this .-inquiry the Acting-Director of Public ■■Works made the remark able statements that during the last two years, the cost of building labour and material to the State had gone up by 30 per cent. of which over 11 per cent, went to labour, and that tlie~ whole cost of works was 40 per cent, more than it was ten years ago. But this ad ditional expense is also operating in England and Russia, in Australasia and the United States. President Taft suggests an international com mission to investigate prices and cost of living. Our own Common wealth Prime Minister thinks that a much simpler way of getting at the ^facts would he to give powers to the sta...

Letters to the Editor. •lho Editor docs not hold himself re sponsible for opinions expressed by correspondents; CONFEDERACY DEFIANT. To tlio Editor. Sir.—If a stranger from another world on a visit to this planet were asked to ex press himself as to one of the most prominent signs of our era, after a short review of the whole aspect of present day affairs, that stranger would immediately say," confederacy, association, and union ism." These words convey to the mind the great social state uf the world. The whole planet on which we live is now a hive of humanity, divided into its different sectional heads. There is socialism, labor ascension, and unionism. There are syndi cates, combines, trusts, and monopolies. AH these, although partially different ns regards principle and action, may be ex pressed uuder the one word confederacy. Confederation, then, is one of the most prominent features of our times. Never in previous history has the world pre sented such a systematic array of mars...
