PUBLIC MEETING IN PERTH Perth, Feb. 16. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
PUBLIC MEETING IN PERTH Perth, Feb. 16. At a public meeting held last evening to further the cause of the National movement, the Mayor of Perth, Mr. F. Rea, who presided, made some scathing references to the present position. Mr. Rae said that no matter to what party they belonged, they must have a feeling of dissatiifaction and disgust with the present state of affairs. He claimed that the-- drissatisfaction amongst people was general, and he asked if there was a mad in West Australia who could honestly say' that he was satisfied with the present position. There might be one. He was the Speaker. The manner in which the business of the State was being codducted was reprehensible in the' extreme. At the meeting- in question, a re. solution was carried--"Tl't, in the opinion of this meeting, in order to win the war and establish sound finance, a National Government is imperative both in the Federal and State Parliaments." Amongst the speakers who sup ported the resolution were Messrs....
STATE POLITICS Perth, Feb. 16. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
STATE POLITICS Perth, Feb. 16. A great deal of public interest continues to centre in political 'f fairs, but the general comment is not at all complimentary, particu laxly to members of the present Go ,vsonment. Though at first it looked as if the action of the Wilson Govern Sment in nominating the sole Inde pendent member for the position of .peeaker would enaible them to get safely into' recess, later develop ments have not accentuated the feeling of security. It is an undoubted foot.that; nei ther the members of .the Centrlisa tion party nor the Country party, as a whole, view the Government's action' in regard to the Speaker in a faA'ourable light. The arember for Wagin, Mr. S. Stubbs, is said to deeply -resent? the appointment of Mr. E. B. John ston. It had been generally under stood previously that the former gentleman would have been the elect of his party in the event of the Speakership becoming vacant. It was noticeable that,although Mr. Stubbs was in the lobbies of the Ho...

The Minister for Defence, Sena toy Pearce, commented to-day on a suggestion made by Mr. Hampson, M.P., that the casualties sustained by the Australian troops should be published each month, side by side with the recruiting fgures for the ssame period.

EDNA MAY CONSOLIDATED. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
EDNA MAY CONSOLL ATED. Recently the market for the above company's shares suffered a sharp setback on an official statement that the reef in tlte drive off the main shaft had been displaced by -a ?ranite dyke (writes the Adelaide 'Register' of February 8). The mar ket conat ued weak on Monday and Tuesday, because the manager re ported that the drive on Saturday was still in the granite bar. Rumours on Wednesday morning that the drive had passed through the bar into ore were supported by fairly substantial buying orders, and the market recovered sharply. Up to the close of the Exchange no confirma tion of the rumour had been receiv ed. The absence of a report from the company was freely and ad versely commented upon, because of the promptness with which the Ex change had been advised of the min favourable development.
