Contract v. Day Labor. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 January 1898
Contract v. Day Labor. The latest announcomont concerning tho con struction of tho proposed dock at Greon Point is that tho work is to bo executed by contract. ThiB intimation is not by any moans a Tivolcomo one to tho public of tho district, and tho docision of tho Govornmont should not bo aceoptod with out a vigorous protest. Tho present Ministry havo extended tho day labor system and they speak in terms of commondation of itB re sulta whorevor practised, in socurine: efficiency of work coupled with economy. It is, thoroforo, remarkable that tho Government should rovert to the contract s-stom on this work, which is especially adapted for execution for day labor. Public works aro only uudortakon by con traotors with a view of making a profit out of them, by charging it higher amount thau tho actual cost of tho work, und supplementing it by cutting down tho wages of their employees. The contract will moat probably be secured by a fcjydney contractor, who will bring workmen with, him...

An Introductory Note. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 January 1898
An Introductory Note. Considerable publicity has been given, during the few past weeks, to what ia called 'The Spanish Confidence Trick.' It ie indeed regrettable that the samo papers which have exposed this swindle have goneou assisting, in their advertising columns 'coDfidendceB' at leaBt aa flagrant, and far more harmful. We refer, particularly, to the quack medicines put on the market by peraona posing as tho prufes aional Buperiora of properly qualified practionors, — vendors of nostrums against whom the Minerva Company of London, New York, Sydney, and Mel-' bourne, is now waging a daily fight in the interest of sufferers. The preparations submitted to a discriminating community by this Company embrace no 'Curealls' -)ut medicines that will assuredly do what is claimed for them in the varioua ailmenta for which they have been designed. These medicineB have been compounded by diplomaed pharmaceutical ohemialB from a formula by leading European and American authority, and bear th...

Marriage v. Celibacy. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 18 January 1898
Marriage v. Celibacy. The question of whether married or unmarried people live longest under given conditions has onco more been receiving a good deal of attention in Europe. The indisposition of tho men of Franco to take unto themselves wives, and aceopt the patriotic duty of maintaining the population standard, has caused statistics bearing on the question of marriage i. .. 1 _ 1 ? 1__.T ? i~t.. . .!? il ' '? . ?? i p _ i io oc looKcci up. une oi me excuses put lorwara in explanation of French reluctance to eater the married state is that the cares incidental to it shorten life. This contention, has beeu subjected to cavoful examination by a Berlin savant, who finds that it is not based upon fact. What he shows is that mar ried people live longer than unmarried. Among married men between the ages of 30 and 45 the death rate is 18 ; among unmarried it is 25, which shows practically that 7 men out of every thousand who remain single thereby commit suicide.
