A WIN FOR BATHURST TURF CLUB.

TIIE TOTALISATOR COMMISSION. REV. ELLIOTT'S-EVIDENCE. AUCKLAND (N.Z.), Wednesday. At to-day's sitting of the New South Wales Royal Commission on the to tEilisator the Rev. Kliiott said that one of the gravest charges against the machine is that touts visit the factor ies and induce boys and girls to invest their shillings and sixpences. He, however, preferred the machine to tne bookmakers, and lie continued that us prolits should go to municipalities. He considered gambling was increas ing. This was evident by the prolits of the Auckland Club alone from the totalisator, which amounted to £ 13,600 at one day's races. He calculated tnat a third of the spectators who attend ed races were under the age of years. Another charge made by Rev. iiliiott is that the machines are mani pulated by tne owners in promoting crooked running.

NOTES AND COMMENTS. An Old, old Story. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 4 January 1912
NOTES AND COMMENTS. An Old, 01(1 Story. Mr. Griffith, the Minister for Works, is up against the General Workers' Union. He has addressed an epistle to that body, which, although it is ac companied by some unnecessary bumptiousness, contains some home truths. But, had he and his party talked in this manner when they were on the stump, they would never have been in power. Even readers outsidfc this State may be interested by the account of the predicament in which the Minister finds himself. He Is an object-lesson not only for New South Wales, but for the Commonwealth. He has discovered that a proposition (and that, we may remark, the nooisiest and most assertive portion) of the men "will be prepared at all times to de mand more wages and priviliges, no what conditions may prevail." These insatiable persons, he declares, must be given to understand that "it is ab solutely essential to show the public that they will get as good value un der it," i.e., the day-labor system— "as under th...

Commercial. WOOL REPORT. Winchcombe Carson, Ltd., report un der date of January 2: Up to date 481,110 bales of wool have been sold in the Sydney market, and it is es timated that 215,000 bales will be available after the holidays, sufficient to carry the auctions to the first week in March. Market prospects are re garded as very encouraging. Our sale dates for the New Year are fixed for January 18 and 29th, February 6, 14, and 22, and March 4. It is report ed from America that the President has recommended Congress to reduce the import duties upon wool. This should have the effect of increasing the purchases of wool made in Aus tralia for American account. The American textile industry has been in something like chaos for years, not knowing what the future might have in store. A prompt settlement of the duties will be welcomed on all sides. Meantime the President has asked Congress to deal with the question expeditiously.
