"BOILING DOWN." [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 6 July 1910
'BOILING DOWN.' _ . .._ ? ' ,' ? The 'boiling down '.of sheep and cattle -for their'tallow, a system that became the temporary- salvation- of Australian stock holders, ? has been attributed to various parties. Mr. Henry O'Brien, of Yass, was one of the earliest to adopt the plan, and Jhas been, ' consequently, credited with originating it. ??' But, in Hodgkinson's , 'Australia,' published .in 1S45, arid the work of one who knew, the following story is told: — ' At some of these forced sales sheep have been sold, for cash, for Jess than one shilling pjer head, scarcely half the ?fvalue of a skin! Matters conlinued'in this, bad state until Mr.' Frederick ETjs ' ' worth of Sydney suggested the plan of slaughtering and boiling: down sheep 'for. their skins and tallow. The feasibility of the suggestion was immediately felt by most of the flock-masters in the colony; numerous experiments were made as soon as possible at various places, and the re sult was extremely satisfactory, *as the q...

COMMENTS ON THE CLAIMS. THE COOK'S RESPONSIBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 6 July 1910
COMMENTS ON THE CLAIMS. 1 THE COOK'S RESPONSIBILITY. Dear Worker,— - . . ' .' - J Regarding the claims for a hew award,,! I notice a section which seeks to I provide that ''cooks shall be held respon- I sible for rations 'and utensils at. the cut- .1 out of ,. « shed. If that is. the wish of the. I members of the committee which framed V| the claims,, they ought t.q. be* in the cook's J\ place. It is a very hard thing for a cook. || to be held, responsible, intne iirst place, ??.-! the cook very of ten. gets a lot of broken ej and -worn-out, utensils, f rom . the station, il and he has got to take them or leave them. ?'

SUCCESS OF THE MONO-RAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 7 July 1910
SUCCESS OF THE MONO-RAIL. Captain Rundall, R.E., has supplied the Indian ' Government with a , report on the Brennan mono-rail system, an-3 a copy of this has been received by the Common wealth Government. Captain Rundall re gards the system -as worthy of early prac tical tests in India, and writes in the highest terms of the comfort to passengers afforded by its absence of vibration and oscillation.. He had seen passengers stand ing 'with their hands in ' their pockets while the car rounded curves at a; speed of 20 miles an hour. As one of the greatest advantages of Mr. Bi;ennan's application of the gyroscope to raiiway cars on the mono-rail system is the securing of extraordinarily high speeds, with apparently, absolute safety, and ais the use of wheels running on a single line makes for economy in railway construction and facility in negotiating sharp curves, it ' Is * possible, and indeed 'highly probable, that within a few years our present;. double-railed lines will be as obso...
AN EXCELLENT SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 7 July 1910
AN EXCELLENT SUGGESTION. A woman writes over the initials B.S.P.:— ' 1 have been thinking if we could start a league of some sort for. the women of Australia to correspond with women in other countries— say, Eng land, America, Germany, and Canada— it would assist us a great deal. Canada would be most interesting from tlie im migration point of view, 'and we would have a good opportunity of learning1 how immigrants are received and treated there. The League of the Empire is very good, but if we had a league'ofvour own— I mean of our own democratic people it would .suit ' us well? Any . letters that we might recer'O containing any im portant information or instructions we could send along to The Worker . for publication.' ; * * * * I sinceuely hope this idea will be taken up. There are post-card and stamp ex changes galore, and why not a working women's exchange of letters'' . We know there are Unions everywhere; no country is-'without them.

THE COST OF LIVING. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 7 July 1910
THE COST OF LIVING. . Judge Burnside and his family, (two adults) recently tried to live on so little a week. He brought . down the cc\st of meals to 4%d. per head each, and lived on bread, butter, jam, pudding, beef, mutton, chicken, turkey, soup, and other things. If you have a good house with all the airpliances for steaming, roasting, grill ing, baking, moulds for puddings, jellies, or 'meats, a full supply of basins and bowls, dishes and plates for keeping this separate from that in storage as left over, you can do about a hundi'ed things to one the poor can do with two sauce pans, no steamers or moulds and one frying-pan. I see in an English paper that a food bill that works out at ' 13/6 per head ' is regarded as ' not excessive,' though 'not particularly economical.' Another case is mentioned where the cost was brought down to 8/ a head a weeK for actual food. This is regarded' as quite unusual, and interesting as showing what is possible. What is regarded as a fair living a...
THE GEORGE JUNIOR REPUBLIC [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 7 July 1910
THE GEORGE JUNIOR REPUBLIC Miss Vida Goldstein, speaking recently at a gathering in Melbourne, described this reformatory children's home. The whole government of the place is vested in the children; sent there for reformation. There is a universal suffrage, and all offices are filled by election in the or dinary way, and boys and girls are every thing from' president to policemen. The idea of-.a^uvenile republic- is due -to a wealthy American named George. Pie gave the money for its foundation, ? and laid down the general principles of its government. Originated in 3 901, it has' dealt with /thousands of children (some being sent for short periods, some for long) from the children's courts of the State. Offences in the colony are dealt with by the children as justices and other officials. There is a local currency, and the- ' citizens ' .are paid in this for all work done. . To provide work there are shops, factories, and farms, ami the first duty of a newcomer is to 'look for work...

~ ^ ? ▼ ? ? ADAM AND THE WOMAN.

WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION. SOME SORT OF BILL AT LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 7 July 1910
WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION. SOME SORT OF BILL AT LAST. Workmen's Compensation has, after many years, become a matter for serious attention by a New South Wales Govern ment. The coming elections have, of course, nothing to do with the case. In Committee of the Whole on Wednesday last Premier Wade moved for leave to in troduce a bill to amend the law in re spect to compensation to workmen for injuries sustained in the course of their employment. This would provide for monetary compensation without proof of negligence by the employer. Such com pensation would be ' limited to three years' salary as in England.' It would not apply to miners, who had a scheme of their own. It would not propose full com pensation, ' and both parties would share to an extent in the loss sustained.' Mr. McGowen approved of the principle of the proposed bill, but could not help feeling that the relief to workers was very belated, seeing that in England such an Act had existed for 13 or 14 years. Se veral other me...

AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENT. ? ? ? OPENING PROCEEDINGS. THE PROGRAMME FOR THE SESSION. The opening of the fourth Australian j * Parliament was in ceremonial much akin to the function on previous .occasions. It wis memorable, however, as marking a new era in national politics, for it formally ( inaugurated the --eign of Labor, which starts on its mission with solid majorities in jboth Houses of the Commonwe'&th Legislature. Long before the hour at which the Governor-General arrived the Senate Chamber, was filled, and by. the * time he was reading the ' Speech ' it was crowded almost' to suffocation. Many carae who witnessed nothing at all of the proceedings, and one man, . turning dis gustedly away, remarked that the only chance one had of seeing the show in comfort was to be returned as a member of Parliament.

NORTHERN MINERS' BOARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Worker — 7 July 1910
NORTHERN MINERS' BOARD. The men's dissatisfaction with their representation on the Board by Mr. J. Paterson came to a head at the meeting of the Board on Thursday morning-, IVIr. Watt, counsel for the Federation, apply ing- for an adjournment pending steps for the removal of Mr. Paterson. ilr. 'Watt said he had received definite ) instructions to make his application that morning. The Board was in the first in stance appointed under the compulsory clauses of the Act, the employees having had no voice in the appointment of their representative, who had been assigned them by the Government. There had at first been general antagonism among the lodges to the submission of their case to a wages board; but when the Federation became convinced of the thoroughness with which the board intended to work, a district vote was passed rescinding a resolution not to recognise the Board. The first antagonism was due in large measure to the appointment of Mr. Paterson, and as the investigations of t...
