THE Western Argus PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, FEB. 20, 1917. THE NO CONFIDENCE MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917

THE PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, FEB. o20, 1917. THE NO.CONFIDENCE MOTION. To-morrow the debate on the No Confidence motion will be resumed.! That the motion' was amply justified is evidenced by: the certainty thatj the voting on it will be extremely close. On Thursday a division on party lines on a ruling of the Speak er's- was onuly beaten by the cat ing vote of the Speaker. The Leader of the Opposition has evidently good reason to doubt whether the Gov erlnment commands a majority .of the Legislatrive Assembly. Mr. Scad dan in the position he now occupies must perform his duty to the. coun rry. and he would, n the cironm stances, have been lacking in that duty had be permitted the Govern- I ment to retire to the safe haven of recess without testing the question of whether the Ministers, in their desire to continue the administra tion of public affairs, have the con fidence of the 'majority of the elect- 4 *ed representatives of the people.

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917

SPORTING NOTES. The Boulder Racing Club have another of their popular pro- grammes in preparation for decision on Saturday week, February 24. The Birkenhead gelding, Buoyant, showed a glimpse of his true form in the February Purse at Kalgoorlie on Saturday last, when he downed a warm favourite in Sedan. Owner trainer Jack Marks started Ainley   as well as the winner, and, judging by the betting barometer, had a slight preference for the, little grey. Trusty Bluey, who finished thirn to Buoyant and Sedan in the Fetb ruary Purse at the Kalgoorlie Rao-J ing Club's meeting on Saiturday, met with considerable interference during the race. About 'three fur longs from home he was knocked back last but settled down to it gamely and finished splendidly. Squatter's Hope, by Pocillator- Quinhbo. who has been on the gold fields for several months, *made his first appearance in .public in the First Division Handicap at Kalgoor lie on Saturday, and, in a field of ten, was installed f...

BISHOP'S VIEW OF BOOKMAKERS [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 20 February 1917

BISHOP'S VIEW OF BOOKMAKERS The sermon on "Gambling," pre- pared by the Bishop of Kalgoorlie, but which he wee unable to deliver owing to a severe attack of quinsy, was read by Canon A. R. Eding- ton, M.A., in St. John's Cathedral last night, and is as follows :- "Few would deny that one of the most baneful and insidious passions which possess men and women at the present day is the passion for gambling. Probably in no previous generation has the indulgence of this passion been so prevalent in every class of the community. . .. But is it always wrong to make a bet or risk a small stake on. the chance of winning more Z The an swer to this question is not so easy as it seems. An affirmative answer, if .logically applied, would forbid every kind of speculative venture, and would make 'it wrong to pay an entrance fee for an ath-. letic contest, or to buy any com modity in the hope 'of its rising in value, or even to insure one's house against fire. Blit even legitimate ventures-if they ...

MOTION BEFORE HOUSE. Melbourne, Feb. 23. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 27 February 1917

MOTION BEFORE HOUSE. Melbourne, Feb. 23. The Prime Minister, in moving the resolution to extend the term of the Commonwealth Parliament in the House of Representatives to day, said that at the. present time of crisis it was not desirable to hold a general election. In propos ing to extend the term of Parlia ment he was following the rest of the Empire. Great Britain had broken all the traditions of the Homeland. The present situation of the Imperial Parliament was a re volution when compared with the pre-war conditions. The elections of the Imperial Parliament had been .postponed, and even there there were conditions closely parallel to conditions here . The crisis was graver to-day than it was last Octo ber. We were only getting half the recruits that we were getting last October, and the need for men was greater. A general election meant chaos. in national affairs for eight or ten weeks, and in the meantime men were wanted The intention was to ask the two i Houses to pass a declar...

MASSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 27 February 1917

Massage is the name given to a m-ethod of mechanical manipulation which, applied to the body, causes the reabsorption of waste products and stimulates the flow of blood and lymph through the parts mani pu.ated. Contrary to general sup position, it is not a newly discovered treatment, but one of great anti quity. Descriptions of it, or a method closely allied to it, are found in ancient Chinee and Hindu books, and it is certain that the Greeks and Romans used it. For many, hundreds of years it was hardly used at all in Europe, but has lately come into custom again, and has undoubtedly proved to be of great value in many ailments. Great care must be taken not to apply massage except m cases similar to those in which it is known to. have been beneficial. In fact, it should not be carried out at all without the sanction of a doctor. There are many cases in which it is harm ful and dangerous-and it would be as well for those who wish to apply it to have a list of the 'diseases in which i...

CHRISTMAS WEEK IN LONDON LITTLE FESTIVE DECORATION. London, December 20. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 27 February 1917

CHRISTMAS WEEK IN LONDON LITTLE FESTIVE DECORATION. (From Our Special Representative.) London, Decemiber 20. Although I am writing in Christ mas week. there is scarcely any thing to be seen in the way of fes tive decoratioas usually associated with the season. liere and there a shopkeeper has made a feeble at tempt to. keep up the old custom, bub the embellishments are in no case of a striking character. The people do not expect it, for their spirit is quite in keeping with the seriousness of the crisis through which the country is passing. Even at the theatres the produc tions lack some of the grandeur to which we have been accustomed. There is a dearth of pantomime comedians, and managers have ex perienced great aifficulty in filling the humorous parts. During the last few menths, the recruiting offi cer has laid hands on scores of com edians, who have been a familiar element in London and provincial theatrical entertainments. Many were only called up at the last moment, and: face...
