THE CADET UNIFORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
THE CAD15T UNIFORMS. Matters sartorial in the Orango unit of the Cadet force of tho Oommon .voalth, according to some of tho mem bers .arc at a low ebb. The "clobber dead crook" one youthful "Corporal still'" remarked to his sisters and parents when he first fell into the nether garments of tihe khaki. "Just look at them, why the seat of 'em's down at my calves"? and lie struggled hard to keep back a tear. As two or three cade?#, gorgeous in their baloon like breeches, were meandering off to drill on Wednesday, and -keeping well within the shadow of Cook Park rail, iligs, some one on the other side of tho road, perhaps unconsciously p'raps not, broke out into the'refrain of a Jiice popular music hall ditty, tho con cluding lines of which sounded like •'Oh vou do look a don with your •iew clothes on, but your trousers they Hi.' baggy".If it were only possiblo to get the Architect of the new uniforms and export him to tho land . of the Shahs and Sherberif, what a future would be in fr...

Joe Williams in Reply. (By Joe Williams.) In reply to "Clean Sport" and-ad mirers of old time fighters, would clean sport and emerge from Ills ob scurity of a nom de plume, and does he recollect the Farman-.Tackson con test in Sydney, and the Folev-Miller, Dawson-Dummy Mace, and Griffo Marshall affairs, all in the good old times when "Disgusted'' was interest ed. As regards' tar and feathers, the I man who attacks another man under ' the protection of a pen name, that should appeal to him. In conclusion, I claim that my career can bear in vestigation. Can "Disgusted" bear the same searchlight?
NEWSPAPERS AT LOGGERHEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912

The Passion. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
The Passion. Mr. Fisher would call it an "itch" —for presenting ultimatums, has reached the cricketersr Six of the old er men, who regard themselves as "certainties," li«.ve notified the Board o£ Control that they will not go to England unless they are allowed to appoint their own manager; and that if the Board insists on sending a gen tleman with the team to watch its interests, it must pay his expenses it self, and not take the money out of the proceeds of the tour. The Board of Control, in its relation to tine team, is in pretty much the same position as the Commonwealth Government in relation to the States, except that the latter is buttressed by the law of the land. It is a very pretty quarrel as it stands. It is highly desirable that these annual contests shall he raised from the level of mere mercan tile speculations entered into by the travelling players. This is the task which the Board has set itself, and, in order to perform it, it proposes to exercise full control. The p...
Mr. Watts. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
Mv. Wafts. Mr, Watts, the Treasurer of Victoria, was hot converter! by the temporising advice of his colleagues. He seems to have been more impressed by the counter maxim, "the blood of the mar tyrs is the seed of thie church.'' At any rate, he regarded the action of the Federal Caucus in this banking business, as an altogether unwarrant ed usurpation, and thought it deroga tory and humiliating to give way to it. However, he found no supporter. The politician who allows his princi ples to dictate has action must be content, in-the present condition of affairs, to be always in a minority, and not unfrequently in a minority of one. ■ How to save your skin, that is "practical" politics, and language fails to convey the scorn of the "prac tical" politician for anyone who en ters politics, and allows himself to be inlluenced by anything else than "force majeure," and the count of j noses. Prom this point of view Mr.; McGowen is entitled to great credit for the ingenunity of his proposal....
The Poor Pressman. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
'Ilio l*oor rrossiuan, It was bound t ocome, and it has come at last. Tlie wnole literary stuff of a West Australian newspaper "struck" the othier day £or substan tial concessions; and, as there was no other alternative, except that of "stop ping the paper," they won tlie day in short oruer. \V ell, if it is an admitted principle that emoluments are to be fixed by force of combination rather than by voluntary acknowledgment of the value of work done, there is cer tainly no one better entitled to any beneiit that cau be gained by such means than tlie hardworking journal ist. Usually, the harder he has to work, the less he gets. There are a few in Sydney who read with engross ing interest the news of the victory at Perth. But tlueir case is less hopeful. The dailies here, especially thoBe which come out in the morning, are fairly liberal to their staffs, as, iu deed, they can well afford to be. And it is only fair to say, that this was the characteristic of most of them, even before u...
FIRE AT BARRETT'S CORDIAL FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
FIRE AT BARRETT'S CORDIAL FACTORY. Just as we wore coming from tea last night at 7 o'clock, the fire alarm bell ran:; out, and the brigade at once proceeded to tho outbreak, wlnlch was 'icntcd at Barrett's Cordial Factory. Tlio pealing of the hell soon brought •he usual crowd, who were eager to be of any assistance, but, fortunately, for Mr. Barrett, their services were not required. The cause of the con flagration was the ignition of a flvc eallon keg'of spirits of wino in the laboratory attached to the factory. A coincident attaching itself to the fire was the remark that was passed by Mr. Barrett to an employee, who was with him, to the effect that the warm nature of the weather would cause t.hem to be extra careful when light ing a. match In the room. As if suit ing tine action to the word, and on Mr. Barret, striking a match, an explosion occurred, and immediately the place was In flames.

COMMERCIAL TRAVELLERS AND CLEAN WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
COMMERCIAL. TRAVELLERS AND CLEAN WATER. Tile Inspector of Police in Forbes is in a high state of perturbation owing to the fact that there is not enough rain water attached to the hotels in town for the purpose of washing the commercial travellers! He said "Com mercial travellers who fly about the country during the week should be guarded while away from their homes so that they run no risk of contracting diseases." To obviate the evil of in fection wc would suggest to th« hotel keepers of Forbes to instal dry blow ing machinery, and when the dusty drummer inquires for the bath, intro duce the blow pipe to him. Any old water will do for the casual visitor; but, tanks must be erected to hold clear, crystal, beautiful rain water for the commercial, who has none of those encrustations that indicate him to he a hornv handed son of toil for whom the ordinary town supply is adequate, and to whom no sympathy is extended, and nobody has any qualms of con science whether he washes in mud or ...

NUMBER ON 13, ORANGE. At last tjio dreams of our waking niul slipping moments are to bo real ized and tho council liavo decided to number tho houses, and Orango will advance another step alonjj;. tho road towards being up-to-date.

CARD PLAYING IN COOK PARK. Mr Griffin, the Cook Park gardener ia his report to the Orange Council oil Tuesday night1, complained of some young men playing cards in the Park. Aid. Whitford said card playing in it solf ivas not very objectionable, but the young men in question might select some other place. Bad language was used by the card players, and this was decidedly objeclionablo in a public park and should be suppressed. The ulfending young men would do well to heed the warning given and refrain from the objectionable practices refer red to. •

FORBES PUBLICANS IN TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
FOKBiUS PUBLICANS IN I'JtcUUjejjUi. At the present, juncture the row of ilio lioteikeeper at Forbes is fairly rough to hoe, as instances the follow ing prosecutions:— a. J. Lawson, of the Federal Hotel, was on Wednesday at tlie police court lined £0, with 0/ costs of cuurt, and 21/ professional costs, for not cleans ing his stable daily. Mary Fogarty, of the Commercial Hotel, for letting her manure bin be come a nuisance by overflowing, was imed £3, with 6/ costs and 21/ pro lessional costs. K Clifford, of the Empire Hotel, was similarly lined, with lilte costs, tor allowing his bin to become a nuisance by overliowing. ii.

A Candid Critic. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
A Candid Critic. Mr. Cann, the Speaker who so oblig ingly stepped down in order that the reign of Mr. Willis might be inaugur ated, is a Labor member whose loyalty to his party Ikib been demonstrated over and over again. Unlike the ma jority of his colleagues, however, he has sufficient candor to call attention to some of the most patent errors of rashness and inexperience. Referring at a public gathering to the Parlia mentary work of the last few months, he said, with much truth, that had Ministers attempted less, they would have been appreciated more, and would have had less trouble in pass ing their bills. One measure, well conceived, and thoroughly thought out in all its details, is worth a hundred of such enactments as, say, the In come Tax Act, which is such a skim ble-sltamble production, that the Go. vernment, in order to prevail on the Council to pass it, had to promise that they would get it repealed at the com mencement of the coming session, and introduce another. On the...
Trade and Finance. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
Trade and Financc. Figures giving the results of the import and export trade of the Com monwealth have been published by the Federal Statistician. They show ail increase in exports—which now amount to £79,484,000—of £4,993,000, and an increase in imports—which amount to £66,860,000—of £6,846,000. The increase in total trade .therefore, is no less than ;£ 11,839,000, or some thing over 8 per cent. That seams good enough to convert the most pes simistic; and Labor Ministers are al ready pointing to the expansion as evidence of the beneficial influence of their rule. Whereupon one is in clined to ask why they should so per sistently describe themselves as vir tually impotent, unless then can ob tain sweeping alterations in thie Con stitution. Perhaps, however, it is un reasonable to expect that the testi mony of politicians shall "agree to gether." But this by the way. In spite of the marked expansion, finan cial magnates shake their treads at the figures thus presented. They point out...
DEARTH OF SKILLED LABOR IN THE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 25 January 1912
DEARTH OF SKILLED LABOR IN THE .WEST. The Itev. Godbehear recently adver tised iu the Orange "Louder" and the Balhurst "Advocate," and his local paper at Cobar, for tenders for tho erection of a Methodist Church, and he has written to tho Cobar "Herald" to the effect that noil one tendor was received. This is certainly a bad stato of affairs. It either points to • tho sparsity of tradesmen or elso that tho building of churches is not conducive to their pecuniary benefits, or is it. that the flies and Darling showers in digenous of that part have terrors for
