ELECTORAL REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 January 1914

ELECTOR A.L REFORM. Notwithstanding the labors of one electoral committee of inquiry that white washed the present Federal system, and the appointment of another, it is not felt by the Cook Government" that matters are right in the Electoral Department. Ap parently but liiitle result is expected from the labors of the recently ap pointed electoral commission, none of the members being regarded as strong men, and so it is whispered in Minis terinl circles that an effort is to be made by Ministers themselves to fix up the electoral rolls which are ad mittedly in a very unsatisfactory condition, and to clear up matters generally in the Department. To this end it is quite possible that Mr Kelly may be relieved of the charge of the Electoral Department so that he may devote his time to the ordinary busi ness of the Home Affairs Department, ar.d the ever increasing work in con nection with the Federal Capital and trans-continental railway. Those best able to judge say very decidedly that ...

I Those of us who have not the luck (o live in those favoured districts whorethe possession of a few acres in the vicinity of a water channel gives j the owner-a luxurious living, or even wealth, can hardly understand how i in the irrigated districts the new j order of things is causing endless I change- One of the old order of far mers who made a comfortable com petence by growing wheat found him self constrained three or four years aj.o to sell the bulk of his land to the ■ Government for irrigation purposes, but reserved his home block of 150 a.cre on which to pass the remainder of his days. Now he tells me he has been practically forced to sell even this, not through lack of means, but simply bocause he feels ashamed to go on with his old fashioned wheat cultivation on his small lot while sur rounded by the new irrigation far mers.

NUT SCIENTIFIC Sir , Ernest Shackleton tells soma gcotl stories about Sir Georgo Marsto* a member of his expedition, and part author.of a book on '"Arctic- Days.". "Oil our expedition," he says, "we had 'a; learned professor and geologist who has undoubtedly a reputation for ex treme politeness. Marstou inet the professor ono day laden down with speci mens of rock in a bag. Said Marstou -to the (Voi'essor. 'Can I carry your ;bag ' 'Oh, don't trouble, Maraton, real Jy, it is too good of you.' But some how or other tlio 501b bag was trans -ferred to Marston's broad and willing shoulders. Instead of being content with the haul of rocks, the Professor began picking up more of the debris scattered along the mountain side, and the 50 lb. bag soon became 60 lb. Mars ton thought he had had about enough of it, so every time the Professor knelt down to coax rock out of its surrounding ice, I saw Mars ton dis charging from the bag, a rock of similar size and weight. The Professor ar rived at t...

BEWILDERED BOOT DEALERS. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 January 1914

BEWILDERED BOOT DEA.I/ERS. The first inquiry held by the Inter- ; State Commission does not seem as if i it would bring much comfort to those ; rabid Protectionists who have been clamouring for years as to the neces sity for the relief of strangled indus- , tries of which the boot trade was said to bo the chief. Unfortunately, although on moat matters the various witnesses called by the trade to sup port the application and were at croso purposes tbey have been almost un animous iu showing, under cross-ex- I aniination, that the trade is exceed ingly prosperous despite the low duties. One witness, who admitted that his firm's profit of £14000 a year meant an eight per cent return on the capital invested, was wisely silent when he was asked if he did not think it unreasonable to ask an increase of twenty per cent on the boot duties so that ho might increase his profits by two per cent. During tho week three train loads of mutton were despatched frowi the Murtoa freezing works—11,000,...

A BAD BUNGLE. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 January 1914

A BAD BUNGLE. - The new City Courts were opened with much ceremony and many ex pressions of pleasure that Melbourne was at last furnished with a court house worthy of the city. From the outside tho building seems to be all that can be desired and is, indeed, a magnificient addition to the architec ture of the city The second day of use told, however,,a very different tale since according to those having business there the new courts are everything a public building should not be. Lawyers and the Press can not hear the witnesses while the members of the Bench who are not, as a rule, remarkable for acuteness of hearing are completely at sea as to what even police witnesses say. In addition, the architects appear to havo completely forgotten to make any provisiou for ventilation, and all who could get away from the court fled as swiftly as possib'e when, from the close packed audience, there arose in all Its unpleasant fragrance, that odor peculiar to police court frequenters.

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Nhill Free Press — 27 January 1914

THE FEDERAL CAPITAL It is impossible to get from those who are dealing with the construc tion of the Federal Capital city any official estimate of the time likely to elapso before it will be ready for occupation. Four years ago, when the site was selected, it was said that the Federal Parliament would be at >'' . Canberra in 10 years at the outside. A vast amount of work has been , accomplished in the meantime, but it ' , will be ten years, in the opinion of offisials who may be expected to know something about the matter, before the seat of Government can be shifted from Melbourne to its perma nent home. One of the principal works that is being pushed on with at present is the completion of the railway line connecting the capital site with the New South Wales rail- . way system at Queanbeyan, eight miles distant. It is stated that this will b9 finished in a month's time. Railway access is expected to make a big difference in tlio progress of the works in the Territory and in the...

To-day the inci dents at Zabern, in Lower Alsace, were the subject of an exhaustive discus sion between the Kaiser and his mili tary chiefs. The incidents at Zabern originated in a speech mado by a twenty-year-old subaltern, Lieutenant von Forstner, to his men. He advised them to stab any "wackes" (meaning rowdy) who at tacked them.
