PRICE FIXING THAT RAISES PRICES. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915
I I | The Government has had to. con fess abject failure in its big wheat experiment. When the wheat was confiscated it was estimated that the yield would be ample to meet the demands of seed and of domestic use. By tlie end of April it was found that the quantity then on hand, woald not carry the people beyond the middle of July, and ^the Government was compelled to import. April and May are the worst months 'of the year to make large purchases in wheat, because it is then the sad of the season, when stocks are depleted, prices high, and the harvest tao re mote for accurate estimates. Purchases are usually made at that time on a restricted scale. - The Government was guided by no such, consideration. It wanted five months' supply of wheat, arid boaglvt at 7s 2d a bushel. Bat before the first shipment could reach Sydney it was found that the wheat crop of other countries would be & record one, and there was a drop in the y market price of 2s a bushel. If the Government conti...
WHEN BRITON MEETS GREEK [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915
A soldier of the first Australian divis ion from Horsham,, who lias charge of the mails for the Eighth Battalion at the Peninsula, relates the following :—"1 got a rush of maiisall at once, and I had to make scv^-i! trips in a boat across to a-harbor a be; at three m'iics away, and one trip to the engineers' wharf, which, is nearly six miles away. I had yet another trip to make further on, but I could not make the Greek sailor I had understand'me. In fact, neither of us cou.ld understand the other. I wanted to go on, and he wanted to come back, so we had a scrui'Ile in the boat. Then, after he called me everything he could think of in his own lingo, he dccided to go where I wanted him to."
THE FRAUDS. SKULKING BEHIND 63 GERMANS. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915
SKULKING BEHIND 63 GER MANS. "Why should I go and fight for the country- while there are Germans in the Government service ?" This, says a- Redfern Congregational Church pamphlet, is a question that scores of yoaug men in Sydney may foe heard asking. The pam p h 1 et con tin ues:—"These fellows ought to be told, with the utmost frankness, that they are humbugs, if they are not something "worse. According to a statement made in. the Legislative Assembly a few weeks ago by the Premier, there are only 63 persons of German birth among the hundreds of thousands in the employ of the State, and every one of these is a naturalised citizen of this country, and has a long and honorable record of loyal Australian service to his'oredit. "Anyway, fancy refusing to de- | fend your country because there j happen to be 63 uatnralised citizens j of German origin in its service. If j a man has conscientious objections against fighting, he should have the j ntroost sympathy of Christian people j If a ...
MR. O'MALLEY "SHAKING THINGS UP." [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915
■ 1 ■ ■ ■ ' ■ - ii. ■ "SHAKING THINGS UP." Trouble is developing iti the Home Affairs Department. Siuee Mr O'Malley assumed control ho has, as he pnts it, been "shaking things up," witli the results that the relations between the Minisier and seme of department";! officers have become strained. The nntin grievance appears to lie iu the restoration to Ministerial fa vor of Mr Vv. B. Griffin, the Ameri can designer. One of the first acts of the new Minister in conforming with his present 'policy lias been to aece p t t h e s i te re corn w e n cl ea by M r Griffin for the proposed arsenal, not withstanding that.some exper.se has been occasioned iu the preiiminar " on the site favored by the depa- • n;entai. oHiftors, and approved by predecessor (Mr Archibald). Mr O'Malley justifies his action on the ground that he has both the ap proval of the Cabinet and of a ma jority of the Public Works Commit tee.

PERILS OF MINE-SWEEPING [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 19 November 1915
Imagine" yourself trying to walk through a dense wood at midnight •with no lantern, the penalty for touching a tree being death! That •will give you some idea of the perils ' which the men on our mine-swefep hig trawlers face -when their vessels are steaming through a freshly-sown mine-field. The mine-sweepers are divided into groups, each of which is commanded by a commissioned offi cer of the Royal Navy or Royal Naval Reserve. The vessels leave harbor about daylight, and steam out i© the area they arc going to sweep for mines. They work in pairs, abreast of each other, between the vessels, be ing what is known as the sweep-wire sunk to the necessary depth in the water by the means of towed "kites," wooden arrangements acting on the same principle as ordi nary air kites. These wires can be regulated to travel at any depth beneath the surface. When mines are caught they are dragged to ; one side and destroyod by rifle fire, j If the bullets hit the detonator the I mine generally exp...

"And with the approach of autumn and winter he approaches actually declining numbers in. the field." .He begins by assuming that al though there arc in Austria and Germany together 27,000,000 men between 17 and 45, of these only 12, 000,000 can be considered...
