AVuSTIALIAN IRON AND 1STER. Melbourne, Dec. 11. At & private exhibition of lantern slides, illustrating the work done ih the munition factories in England, the Minister for Defence, Senator Pearce, to-day announced that the Commonwealth Government had of fered the British Government one half of the output of the steel and iron factories of Australia. That, he added, would necessitate the stoppage of some works now being carried out. When protests were made, as was likely, against the action of the Government he. asked those he was addressing to remember what they had seen in the pictures screen ed of the magnificent. work being done in the munition factories of Great Britain, and that all the avail abl.e iron and steel which Australia could supply was wanted for those factories.

BOXING ON THE BATTLEFIELD [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916

BOXING ON THE BATTLEFIELD If there is one amusement that our boys at the front enjoy more than another it is good boxing, and the military authorities evidently try! to encourage good, clean sport of that sort as much as possible. In a big divisional tournament, which was conducted somewhere. in France on October 18, that popular young 'Kalgoorlie lad who used to box here under the name of "Jack Spruce" was one of the contestants. Each brigade lhad the right to appoint a representative and after a prelimi nary bout with the nominee of ano ther battalion, Jack was selected to represent the - Brigade. He won his first heat, and put up a strenu ous fight .in the final, but lost it on points, although- advices say. the bott was-a very close one. ' In a letter to- a fienid here Jack -says he had only come out of the trenches a few -days before, after doing three weeks- fighting -the . German% but the authorities gave him a week's leave on the strength of his taking part.

WESTONIA GOLDFIELD. Westonia, Dec. 13. .Edna May Central. Although the iflow of water in the main shaft of the . Central is little beyond the normal quantity encountered recently in sinking, the soakage has gamed on pumping operations. This is not a serious matter, the dropping of the pump another'0 ft. being all that is neces sary to overcome the temporary difficulty. The shaft at a lepth of 396 ft. is fully 100 ft. less m depth than the adjoining Edna May main shaft, and as the pumping plant on the latter is in full swing at 490 ft., .little diflliculty, as regards water should be experienced on the Cen tral proverty in opening up a new level below the 400 ft.
