" THE LIBERIAL POLICY. COMPENSATION ¶TO WORK ERS4 ................ "*I'. Now that the members iof the' Liberal party in ~the State parlla mnent have settled their difference "which naturally arise among mcen who think for rthemselves) they should be ready to frame and pass measures which make- for the highest good of the many. The riumph of Mr. Watt, and the keconstruction of his Mmistry mean, among other thmgs, that instead of a plunige into soclahlism the wage earner will get certain solid advantages. Amongst the measures that will do much to improve the position I ot the wage earner is one to pro-. viide for compensation to workers for injurics occunring in the coure ot their employment. Under the old system the. worker's chance of securing compensation it disabled whilst at wTork was very doubtful, and the chance ot his widow se suring compensation was more doubtful still. Many generous and wealthy employers have acted very lib?crally, but some employers are not generous, fnd mn...

SPORT AND PASTIME. --o BOWVLING. TRARALGON v. BAIRNSDALE For some years a team of Tra ralgon bowlers has paid a visit to Bairnsd~ale the Saturday nearest to Foundation Day. The tour has always been most enjoyable. l-' thouigh the locals have invariably won the match, and stripped the visitors of their laurels. Part of the programme has been a night run down the river, and a brief but ery delighttul stay at the Lakes' Entrance. This ndcturnal trip has always been done bet ween the hours of 8.3~ p.m. and 1 a.m. the following day. This gives the opportunity of obtaining a whiff of ozone, on- the Sunday and part of 'the Monday, and the bowlers return to .Traralgon re freshed and recuperated. Last Saturday was the date of this trip, and Mr. J. G. Keys undertook the onerous task of collecting a team of 12 reputable bowlers, and arranging the details of programme after the match. He had a more ,lifficult and.thankless task than he had expected. Se v-eral of the most consistently suc cesstu...
