APPRECIATION OF SIIASKUTON London, Feb. 11. The well-known Polar explorer, Captain RoLd Amundson, has con tributed to the "Daily Chronicle" an appreciation of Sir Erbest Shackleton. He says he long had the highest admiration for Sir Ernest Shackleton's qualities as a man of indomitable will and im mense courage. His 1908-9 journey was the most. wonderful Polar achievement. He continues: "If he was great then, what carn we say now I .t is in misfortune 'that a man. is tested. Nobody could be tried more than he and his companions were tried during the past two years. Everything was against hint on both sides of the Antarctic. His experience and sagacity enabled him to preserve the Weddel Sea party. It takes a sailor to apvreciate his imall boat journey to South Georgia. That was a triumph of great daring crowded with deserved success. "His later efforts to rescue the men marooned were followed with world-wido breathless interests With unsuitable ships, but the best he could find, he t...

BISHOP AT,,RUHLEBEN. OUR MEN'S FIGHT FOR BODY 'AND SOUL. "TELL FOLKS AT HOME WE'LL STICK IT." - Life at Ruhleben as. lived by him among British civilians imprisoned -there was graphically described to me yesterday by the Right Rev. Dr. Hei+bert Bury, Anglican Bishop for North and Central a?urope (writes Frederick Wmn, Wile, in the London "Daily Mail,' Dec. 4). Dr. Bury reached London on Saturdav from Switzerland after a ten days' visit to Germany. He lived in Ruhleben. for a week, and passed a day at the ca.m for British officers at Blank enbergg. The Bishop penetrated into the h'eart of the enemy's country with the' assent of the British Govern ment and the permission 1of the German authorities. He has come home with an appeaEng story of the struggle which 3600 Britons are making to keep body alive, mind sound. and spirit unbroken. They are doing so, the Bishop declares, only by dint of "a superhuman ex hibition of tenacity .i the face of deterioriating and embittering con ditions....

I buried: my noase instantly in "The. Times." I had encouraged, though not too enthusiastically, her idea of, a career for women. For one thing, the increased price of printing paper had-somewhat affect ed .the views of editors as to my lin~ispensabilty. Then she had got into a habits off devouring a whole six-shilling novel a day. Am her own famiiaitr friend dropped in too often' to ask my opinion about toe war.

He was ten dered a most .enthusiastic welcome at the Catholic Cathedral of the Im culate m. Conception last evening, the building being crowded. The: Archbishop de:ivered a power-' ful address, giving a brief account. of his travels in his oflicial capacity. Anyone who took the trouble to go; through the ranks of the Australian soldiers at the front, he said, would find that. the Roman Catholic Church in the Commonwealth had contri buted its full qufota. On his arrival in England, he learned that the sick and wounded Australians were scat tered over hundreds of the hospitals. and convalescent homes, but, by con stant travelling, he managed to visit most of !he larger ones.

COMMODORE G.M. CO. HALF-YEARLY REPORT. .The directors of the Commodore Gold Mining Company, in their re port for the ,alf-lvee~r ended Novem ber 30, says:--"Operations have been confined to the treatment. of accumulated slimes, and to the prov ing and development of the Mac quarrie. option. Of the accumulated slimes, 5100 tons were treated, which, together with 1570 tons crushed from the Macquarrie, am ounted to a total of 6760 tons put through the slimes plant .during the period.. The value of bullion recovered was £3676 5/8. Of the tonnage treated from the Macquar rie lease, 1100 tons were from dumps on the surface raised by the owners and too low a grade for them to crush.

From available .records, between 6000 tons and 7000 tons were crushed of a gross value of 38...

Mr. $bokes presided over a good attendance. The chairman said the proapeotor S'the lioproperty, Mr. Parker, had pegged out two leases. It was pro posed to form a syndicaae with a h~pital of O1000, in 100 shares of 91n0 bach. The vendors--Mr. Parker emnd two othon-_wr bte r ve40 share, ia hlie` balance, which had been offered to the .publie, had been overt subscribed. That would give them £500 for working capital. Per scrally, hý did not think that stum was sufficient. He would prefer to' see the capital increased to £1500, the syndicate to hold' 50 shaies in reserve to be issued if the" £500 proved insufficient to put up the necessary; equipment. A trial par cel of 5 cwt. of ore had been sent to Dalgety & Co., Melbourne, and hal realiseed £26, or a little more than. £100 per ton. Mr. Parker es Itimated that the or...
EDNA MAY MINE. INDEPENDENT ESTIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
ED9NA -MAY MINE. INDEPENDENT. ESTIMATE. From a. West Australian source has, been received a copy of -an inde pendent report by a mining sur veyor on the position of the Edna May mine (writes the Adelaide "Re gater"), from which the following bass been extracted: The recently reported develop [(Lent at the 385 level in the Edna' .pny is interesting, in that it atf Lords data on which to estimate ap proxim'ately the life of the mine. To date it has returned no less than £5 9/ a share in dividends. At the end of last October1 when the balf-I-early report was issued, the ore reserves above. the 300 level were computed at 35,000 tons, of a "value of • £143,000, or £4 a ton. bince then approximately 1000 tons .Jave been treated, leaving 26,900 tons available for the mill above the 300 level. The direction in which the crosscut at the 385 level has been put out has not been pub lishied, but if it has been extended in th'' same direction as it was started-as shown in the plan p~t lished wit...
THE CENTRALISATION GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
THE CENTRALISATION . .GOVERNMENT. In State politics, the outlook has ppmewhabt brightened within the past week or so. The Premier has 'witlidreiwn the Government's obnox ious. legislative p ioposal, including the Gerrymandering Bill, and the increased toaxation schemes. The ohbjotions. to a redistribution of aeatd during war time, when so many of the back-country male elec tors are absent at the front, and their wives and children are living in Perth, must be obvious. These objections are intensified when there is a well-grounded suspicion that the Government does not mean to act fairly towards their political op ponenes-a suspicion caused by the minisria determination to con tinue the existing injustice of giving the elector at a plwce like Northam, considerably greater power than the elector at Boulder City or Kalgoor lie. It is better that the present anomalies should be allowed to tem porrxily continue, than that the still, worse anomalies of the proposed bill should be institut...
EMPTY STOMACHS. THE GERMAN REASONS. Amsterdam, Dec. 12. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
ElRIPTY STO 11ALCJHS. THE GERMAN REASONS. Amnsterdamn, Dec. 12. The Ohanced+lor in the Reichstag this afternoon did what was ex pected of him--nameay, he announc ed a final effort by the Kaiser to trap the allies into peace, or, alter natively to saddle them with the responsibility for every further out rage his sworn torturers can invent (writes Charles Tower in the Lon don "Daily Mail"). It is probably unnecessary to point, out that peace made now on the Ohancellor's terms would leave Germany more victorious than she can hope to be under the most fa vouxrable circumstances later. As the Socialist "Artbeiter-politik" saiyn on Oct6ber 20. Germany's bid for .world power could be achieved in two ways, east or west-either through Belgium or "by. a Central European Alliance to secure the lane, route to Asia." The paper urged that Germany's imperalist object 'would be achieved by secur ing the eastern 'route, even if she actually agreed .to restore the sta I tuh quo ante bellum in the we...
WHY MEN DON'T ENLIST. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
WHY MEN DON'T ENLIST. "How do you get to the Stadium Z Why, get on the West Melbourne tram and follow the crowd l" (says a writer-in -thp,"Age") If, ou failed to get on the txratbe puse you could. not hang- on to the stanchions, all you had to do was still-follow the crowd, and you could not miss your destination. The crowd stopped at a great rectangular building, and in a happy-go-lucky, good-humoured way found seats as near to the box ing ring in thie centre as possible. It was the ordinary crowd seen in the cheapest parts of the theatres. on the hill at .lemington, or around 1 Bourke-street corniers. Perhaps one in twenty 'gives the average of wo-. men' to men. Not their, numbers. however, but their type, was the sur prising thing. Young mothers with toddlers, or babies in arms, enjoyed themselves thoroughly; hundreds upo, hundreds of them were mice looking, .presentabtby-garbed girls, whose pretty. hair was dressed in the .latest fashion and was unspoiled by hat.=.

MAN WHO MADE THE MACHINE-GUN. SIR HIRAM MAXIM DIES IN LONDON. AIR FLIGHT WITH KING. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917
MAN WHO MADE THE IACflN E-GUN. SIR HIRAM MAXIM DIES IN LON DON. AIR FLIGHT WITH KING. The machine-gun and bairbed, wire have probably exercised a more profound influence on the science of 'warfare than any two in ventions.of the past century. The machine-gun, as we know at to-day, was the outcome of the famous "Maxim," the inven'ion of ir Hiiram Maxim. whose death at h:s home in streatham is anhoun ced. Maxim was the first man to con ceive the idea of using the effort wasted in the recoil, or "kick," of a gun t.o operate autom$tically the loaa:ng arid firing mechanism. The idea came to him first in 1873, and he made some early designs about that time, but it was not until'1887 that the gun ':ook definite shape. Briefiy,' the. idea of the inventor was to evolve 'an automatic gun which would employ the ''kick" to load and fire the .arm ouce its. mechanism.had been set in action, "a 'touch-the-button" gun, as it was then called. It is interesting to recall'that at :his period the 'Germ...

ELSIE MAY G.M. Mri C. 0. G. Larcombe, A.S.T.C., lecturer in geology at the Kalgoorlie School of Mines, has made a report on the Eleie May gold mine, at Waterfall, about 20 chains S.E. of 'the Golden Ridge mine. In tile course of his report Mr. Larcombe writes : "The geology of the d'strict has been. described by Mr. Honman in Bulletin No. 66 of the Geological Survey of. West Australia, and L see no need to add further to his work. The country consists of older greenstones, quartz-porphyry (in which the Golden Ridge mine occurs) gr'aphite slates, and old, steeply-bedded sediments. General Remarks. "In a report of this kind the main considerations are economic, and Ii intend to confine my remarks more to a discussion of the nature of the ore.body you have unearthed and to future possibilities. "After carefully examining the material from your ore deposif I have no hesitation in saying that the deposit is primary in origin and consists of a true lode formation. "The mine was discovered...
