EXCELLENT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

EXCELLENT ADVICE. Mr. Ruese! French, General Man ager of the Bank of New South Wales, bears the reputation of beiDg ODe of the great bankers of the day. For that reason, among others, it waB interesting to hear him discoursing upon the intricate question of "steadiness in finance," hie remarks being addressed at an annual meeting of banking mag nates. Mr. French laid down the ajnxim that it should be the en deavour of those responsible for the financial affairs of this country to make steadiness in finance their watchword. Steadiness, he went on to say, makes for solid well-being |d our national development, pleaded for "steadiness in charac ter," steadiness in progress, steadi ness in financo great and small, public and private." Excellent advice this is, yet it is to be fearod that the financing of our Stato af fairs ifi characterised as ofton by j haphazard method as by anything ! else. Still, withall, the State uaud- J dies along with remarkable success.

SYDNEY'S FESTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

SYDNEY'S FESTIVITIES. j Once again back to autumn. Once again the show. Once again Easter. This year there is a gre.it promise of all the festivities associ ated with the holiday season at tracting larger crowds than ever. How all the people are to be ac comodated in the city is to-day an unsolved problem ; how all the ex tra tram traffic is to be handled is a question equally perplexing. The passenger trade by railway and steamer began in earnest a week ago ; it is very heavy from all parts of this and also adjoining States, and Sydney is in for a very busy time for the next few weeks. Of course it is the financial side of all this great traffic that appeals to Sydney, and the spending power of ihe visitors is expected to be in keeping with the wave of prosperi ty which istsweeping over the State. Already there is a promise that this flxpectation will be amply realised.

The Northern Territory. PROFESSOR GILRUTH "GOING UP TO BLAZE THE TRACK." [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

The (Northern Territory. PROFESSOR GILRUTH "GOING UP TO BLAZli THE TRACK." Professor Gilruth, the new Administra tor ol' the Northern Territory, speaking in Sydney on Saturday prior to his departure for Darwin, said that whilst he had un bounded faith in the futun.- of the north, he recognised that he hau one of the most difficult pioneering tasks in the world in front of him. The 1 er. itory was no place to dump the settler ahead of developmen tal works. There would be plenty of room for him, though, along the blazed track ; " and i," he said, " am going up to blaze the track.' About the productivity of the Territory no man who had had any experience of it could have the least doubt There were immense areas of fertile land without people, stock, or even fences. Counting in all the white people, all the cattle, all ihe horses, all the pigs, there was not one domesticated animal to the square mile. Much of the land was not even surveyed. In days gone by a square was drawn on the map,...

A GREAT PARADE. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

A GREAT PARADE. Nineteen thousand Australian soldiers reviewed by the Governor General on Saturday was the greatest sight Sydney had seen in military display. Previously at a King's Birthday Parade there had been an attendance of some seven thousand, but here were consider ably over double that number, and all or nearly so, Australian boys. High spirited young white Aus tralia was inclined to kick over the traces of compulsory drill, but there was no evidence of anything of the kind among the nineteen thousand cadets on parade on Saturday. Even the outward signs which declare the rawness of the recruit were rarely in evidence, and discipline and deportment were good. It was a very fine sight, this Australian Army in the making. Australian boys, born and reared in a land and in cir cumstances of exceptional freedom from restraint hardly knew the meaning of the word discipline. But they have started to learn in earnest, and to Sydney boys at any rate the lessonwill be of immense value...

Socialism and the Primary Producer. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

Socialism and the Primary Producer. Tho poicy oi' the Labor Govern ment in steadily increasing the number of State Socialistic ventures is fraught with the gravest conse quences to the whole ' State and more particularly involves the im mediate interests of the farmers settlers. There have been started on various precious pretexts, State brick works, State lime works, and State metal quarries, and there are now promised State coal mines, State iron and steel works and the State building .of houses for Sydney workmen. AJ1 these enterprises cost money, and bo far as the schemes already installed are concerned, it has not been shown tliat tue c ii'i iry "is getting a fair return for the expenditure. It is only to be ex pected that these fantastic schemes managed by men who lack the sti mulus of personal gain, should not show anything like the financial results which private enterprises do. Managed as they are, it is inevit- j able that lite Government stroke will make its appearance. T...

THE CHURCH'S ICICLES. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

<f THE OHtJECEC'S IOIOI.ES. To illustrate the stand-offishness of some churches tills story is told of a man who sat through the service one Sunday morning wearing his hat. When request ed to do so by an usher, he removed his iiat smilingly. Tlio usher afterwards asked him If he had worn the hat pur posely, or if it was merely absent-minded negligonco. "No," said the man. "I have been attending this church regularly for nearly two years, and no one has ever spoken to mo in all that time. I Just thought that I'd leave my liat on my head this morning to seo if it would serve as an introduction to someone. I am glad to meet you." That isn't as bad as the case of a parish in N.S.W., in which the rector's wife had never met influential churchmen in the same town for a quarter of a century.

MORE ROOM WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

MORK ROOM WANTED. Last week we touched up on the question of rubbing tht> Sydney Botanical Gardens off the face of the Sydney map. It is a desperate suggestion. Yet it ia not new. That great Railway King, the late Mr. Eddy, saw in Hyde Park little more than a splendid railway asset going to waste, and the Gardens are only the extension of Hyde Park, which is early Syd ney's race-course. The author of this suggested vanndalism," says one of the city daily papers, " is Mr. Keele, one of the Harbor Trust Commissioners." Mr. Keele the paper goes on to pay is a very able engineer, he has the valuable quali ty of imagination. But like the late Mr. Eddy the sense of the utilitarian predominates in him. Mark the expression, "the sense of the utilitarian predominates in him." The chances are that it is nothing of the kind. It iB hard to conceive that a great engineer should not have as keen a sense for the artistic as most other men. In Mr. Keele's case the chances are that he has. But th...

Surfing, swimming, cricket, football, horse-racing, land-sales, the weather—any thing but politics, which comes last every time. Yet when Members of Parliament pro proposed to raise their salaries to the tune of £4 a week, thus making their screw £10 a week, Sydney ac tually began to talk politics. The morning papers have stormed re garding " Mr. Speaker." Members have been removed until the pro ceedings have grown almost mon otonous. Parliamentary doings have been strenuous, yet Sydney had no time for them until members proposed to add another £4 a week to their Parliamentary allowance, then Sydney began to talk politics, and ask questions.

•iSHiL "J_l - A..! -L'-JJ ! In and Around Sydney. Written Specially for Country Headers. (By T.C.B.) THE CIGARETTE HABIT.

Tho bill went through Parliament, but the boy still has no difficulty in securing his smoke and injuring: his health, atone and the same time, and in individual cases rendering himself unfit for military service. The reason Dr Ross got so little support for bis bill in Parliament was that mem bers saw the futility of legislating in a direction which simply courted failure, nothing short of absolute prohibition would likely separate the boy and his cigarette, and his "drawback." But how unfortunate it seems to be in going through life that so many things whic...

The British Budget. London, Tuesday evening. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 6 April 1912

The British Budget. London, Tuesday evening. Mr. Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer, deliveied his Budget speech >n he House of Commons to-day. 'J'he surplus, said the Chancellor, would be devoted to strengthening the Exchequer balance. If it was found unnecessary to spend it, Parliament could decide what was to be done with it, or it could be de voted towards the reduction of the debt. The estimated revenue was £ 187,189,OOOj and the estimated expenditure £186,8S5, 000. There would be no fresh taxation or reduction. The prospect of a decrease in the Naval estimates was not particularly bright. The strike had depleted the last year's revenue of i'440,000, and a further strike loss would be sustained during the coming year to the extent of -fci,200,000. Continuing his Budget speech, Mr Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer, said that the surplus was the largest on rec ord. The prosperity of the trade had exceeded the most sanguine expectations. Before the strike, the un...
