NATIONAL ORCANISAiION Melbourne, Dec. 4. "These messages. are direct to us, as well as to the peop!?o who live in Great Britain," said the Prime Minister in the course ot an inter view to-day on the subljeo of -the speethes delivered by ltr. Arthur Henlerson Minister or?I'Pelsions. and Mr. F. S. Montague, Minister for Munitions, dealing with the necessity for the entire manhood and womanhood of Britain beini placed at the service of the nation in order that the allies should win the war. "These appeals set out in the plainest possible language." said Mr. Hughes "the fact which has of late become more apparont, namely, that the possibilities .t the terminatio-i of. the war in. the summer or autumn of next year have become very remote. The statements by Mr. Arthur Hewper son, late Leader of the British Labour party, and Mr. Montagu, the Minister for Munitions, show that the pathway to decisive victory is long and. strewn with obstacles which nothing but the most com plete organisation...
THE RECRUITING SCHEME Melbourne, Dec. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916
r--.-----.- ---- m w ? THE RECRUITING SCHEME Melbourne Dec.' 3. The attitude of the members of the ot:cial Labour party towards the re cruiting cam3paign, which is to be launched shortly on the Ministry's scheme, with. Mr[ McKinnon, M.L.A.. ..,s Diredbor. of Recruiting, is probably the most interesting question that presents itself from a consideration of the present political position. One. of the most interest ing details of . this scheme is the proposal to make all the members of the House of Representatives the chairmen of the committees in their r'espeotive electorates. In view of 'the fact that the members of the ofhicial Labour party, which is now tLc Opposition corner .party, when opposing conscription in the recent referendum campaign, declared themselves emphatically in favour of voluntary recruiting,. this scheme was regarded as a test of the sin cerity of their protestations. Mr. Hampson declared in the House of Representatives on Friday that he would take .no part in th...

THE ESPERANCE COMMISSION I --L Perth, Dec. 7. The Royal Commission on the Es perance Lands has taken the evi, dence of Captain A. E. Douglas, master of the s.s Eucla, regarding the Esperance Harbour. Captain Douglas said he had had 27 years' experience at sea, and had been for 14 years on the south coast between. Albany and Eucl. He was familiar with ptll. the harbours between those two places. - As to the possibilities of the harbours for .sclharging and taking in cargo, a fair sized ship could- be taken into any of them for shelter without dan ger in almost any weather. There was good shelter there. The south past winds, however, affected them jist as other ports were affected"by certain winds. He had discharged cargoes from all the ships he had been on at all these ports. The best all-round harbour along the south coast was undoubtedly Es perance. It was one of the best open grounds along the coast; - It had a good sandy bottom. There was a five-mile scope of safe anchor age. The...

CANADIAN SOLDIER'S HEROISM. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916
CLS'ADIA N SOLDIER'S 1H.EROISM. No more remarkable story of the war has been told than that of how a Canadian soldier killed 23 Ger mans single-handed. It was in the Hessian trench, or in a twist of the craterland about it, writes Mr. Philip Gibbs in a message describ ing the capture of Thiepval, that two German officers and 22 men came down across the holes. They were met by a private soldier, who was surprised to see them. They emptied dis revolver at them, shoot ing one of them. Then he picked up a German rifle and fired that, and killed another. A second time he stooped and grasped a rifle at his feet, and killed a third man. The others ran. Our man ran after them. It was a chase along a dirty ditch which had once been a trench, and the hunter was a dead shot, with abandoned rifles all along the way. At the end of the hunt there was only one German unwounded, and he was brought back as a prisoner. 'It sounds like a lie-preposterous in the numbers given. But the Germah prisoner t...
GOLD MINING AND WAR PROFITS TAXATION. (Concluded.) The injustice of a War-time Profit Tax on Gold. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916
GOLD MINING AND WAR PROFITS TAXATION. (By W. A. Macleod, in the Monthly Journal of the Chaimber of Mines.) (Concluded.) The Injustice of a War-time Profit Tax on Gold. The principle underlying the pro posed war profits tak appeals to all as entirely just, and its introduction as opportune. If any trade or busi ness makes additional profits as the result of the war extra taxation is .unquestionably just. With the ex ception of taxation on development expenditure, mining companies have been prepared to pay, and are pay ing already, additional taxation (State, Federal and English), and a satisfactory compromise has been effected regarding developmient ex penditure. However hard it may be, they must.be prepared to tur ther share, the national burden,- but they cannot be expected to pay a fax on profits which do not exist. -The proposition can be affirmed without fear of contradiction that it is impossible for a goldmining com pany to make additional profits as the result of the war. Ind...
