SHIPPING TRADE DISPUTE. TEMPORARY SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 23 January 1914

SHIPPING TRADE DISPUTE. • $ TEMPORARY SETTLEMENT. The action of the Sydney wharf laborers in refusing 10 work overtime— an attitude that has harassed shipping for nearly a week—lias come to an end. At an overflowing meeting of Sydney Wharf Liborers' Union on Wednesday it was deci-Jed to resume work under normal conditions. The secretary (Mr f. Woods) stated after the meeting that the members would work next day, as usual, over time included, pending the result of the Melbourne conference between representatives of the ship owners and Waterside Workers' Association. Mr Woods further said it had been decided by the meeting that no mem ber was to cease work until notified to that effect by the executive of the union after a "cease work" meeting had beeo held.

WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 23 January 1914

WIRELESS TELEORAPHY ■ IB (By Clias. Whitelaw, Crcswick). The mystery eDveloping the secret of wireless telegraphy began to reveal itself when it was suggested by Ampere that the theory of a universal ether might supply the mums of explaining electrical fact. This view was upheld in America by Joseph Henry, and in England by Michael Faraday. When Maxwell in 1864 worked out mathematically the theory of the waves, and Hertz proved experiment ally the correctness of Maxwell's theory, we obtained perhaps the great est insight into the hidden mechanisms of nature which have yet been made by the intellect of man. An age of progress such as this has made wireless telegraphy possible. Its principles are established in the nature of electricity itself. Although the theory of wireless tele graphy was first thought out in 1864 it was not till 1887 that it was put to practical test by Hertz, so that it is seen that Hertz is the inventor of wireless telegraphy or Hertzian waves as they were origi...

DISEASE SPREAD BY DUST. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 23 January 1914

DISEASE SPREAD BY DUST. Wo have lately been warned that tno deadly germ.-, of tetanus of lock jaw infest tlie dust of our streets. Tho disease, in spite of all research, is sur rounded witn a considerable amouut ot mystery, and it has increased during the last ten years very appreciably. Karthy material and dust is now whirl ed about by the rapid travelling motor vehicles, whether they carry passengers or nuods, to an extent never before known, and it is to this cause that tho increase in tho disease is attributable. One suggestion made is that houses should bo Uuilt a littlo back from tho roadway so that a. belt of garden may intervene, and allow tho dust to settle instead ol* reaching the dwellers in tho houses. Hut this will not do much to help tho Pedestrians who must use tho roads, i'iie only saieguard will bo for tho road authorities to keop the .street.4 damp and so to prevent tho spread of germ-carrying dust. Ucsidos this tho public must realiso that any wound, even tho slig...

THE CRESWICK PLANTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Creswick Advertiser — 23 January 1914

THE CRESWICK PLANTATION. Id the Melbourne "Leader" of this week appear three views of the School of Forestry at Creswick, viz., "Part of « Pine Plantation," "The Nursery, Flanked by Pine Plantations," and "Pines on Poor Land." Accompany ing the illustrations is the following:— "Adjoining the town of Creswick, an important and successful attempt at reafforestation on an extensive scale is being carried out by the Department of Slate Forests. The country on which valuable pine forests have now been established was always marked by poor soil, timbered mainly with stringy bark. Miniug operations on a mammoth scale led to the rapid denudation of the original trees, and left the interior land in a worse condition than ever. The area now under the control of the I'oteslry department embraces about 15,000 acres, of which 5000 acres are so poorly timbered as to require re afforestation. Tho balance of the forest reserve contains a sufficient pro portion of original eucalypts to justify its b...

Sik,—Would you kindly allow space io your valuabb paper to express a few thoughts on the social aspect as presented to us to day. Everywhere industrial unrest and discontent pre vails almost throughout the world, and certain economic doctrines pro mulgated on the platform by some with ulterior motives, seeking position or prccuniary benefits, spreading illusion in the minds of many who have blindly followed what appeared a way out for the worker to obtain a goodly share in the world's wealth. " Labor gets only one-third of the value it produces. It is out after the other two-thirds " Such is the political economy preached by those who are anxious to foster class antagonism. The idea prevails among a great many employes that almost every employer is unjustly making large profits from his labor. Such doctrine is generally a fa...
