TRIBUTERS' GRIEVANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916

TRIBUTERlS' GIIEVAS CES. "Tributer," Kalgoorlie, writes toI ~s as follows :-I would like to bring under theo notice of the,. Minister the necessity for doing something to help the ti'ibuters of 'these fields by bringing in a Tri buters' Bill and thereby protect the tributers tio some extent from the companies whose properties are being worked on tribute. Under the present system the' companies are charging up to 40 per cent. royalty on the gross yield. In many I ca~ses no agreements are given, and . the companies are only waiting for the tributer to strike somet~hing! good, when he will. be thrown out j and they will work it themselves. I contend that the Minister ought to instruct the warden not to regis ter an agreement covering a .priod of less .than 12 mo~ths, . and also make' it, compulsory .ifoi 'the coIn pabnies ti o `give every .inn an agree '-ment.. There are a thousand and one grievances the tributers have got against the present system, which is too one-sided altogether. ...

JOAL AND CIVILISATION. The report of the Collie .Coal Commission, setting forth.the merits and defects of Western Australia's mineral fuel resources and the pos sibilities and. probabilities of more effectively and extensively utilising them, comes very apropos at a time when the industries,. the trans port and lighting of the Common wealth, have been held up through .the New Soqth Wales coal strike. The .,people of a well-wooded coun try rarely appreciate that essential ity to 'modern civilisation-steam making mineral: fuel-until its for ests begin to show the effects of un remitting and usually" reckless de pletion. Domestic fuel for. house warming and cookery may be still obtainable, though, at greatly en hanced cost, in country districts, but large cities are dependent for their continued existence on coal. It :means "Dower" for all factories and industries, for railways, ahnd for steamers, and withouit it maniufac turing cannot be carried on; neither can .the food essentials of...

THE BALKAN POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916

THE BALKAN POSITION. The war. situation in the Balkans has altered very much for the worse during the past week, both in the north and in the south. Rumania is paying dearly for her strategic mistake in -attempting to recover Transylvania--"Rumanla . Irreden ta"-before safeguarding herself on the south,against, the Turko-German Bulgar combination; and Greece, whose King has done so much to block the advance of the allies from .Salonika, has excelled herself in treachery. To deal with the actual fighting position . first of all, the situation in Rumania is that about I one-third of the kingdom-the west ern section of the province of Wal lachia-.is in the occupation of the enemy. The Rumanians fought gal lantly and obstinately on the Tran sylvaniqn Alps .frontier to stop the concentrated Austro-German forces ot General Falkenhayn in their southern thrust towards the capital. They relied largely on the Danube, their southern frontier and line of defence, to keep General Macaken sen's f...

ESPERANCE ROYAL COMMISSION Perth, Dec. 15. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916

I SPtWAlcE ,0oL uIOMMioSu I1 SPerth, Dec. 15. The Esperance Cornmission met again to-day,, when the following evidence was taken : SAlexander R. Richardson, a pas toralist and trustee of the Agricul tural Bank, said that he visited the Esperance mallee lands early this year, and furnished a report. He had fo'm.ed' the opinion that the land was deficient in phosphoric acid, and would require to be built up with phosphates. The introdue. tion of phosphates had contributed to the success of the mnallee lands in Victoria and South Australia by pushing forward- crops by about three weeks, so that they. esoaped hot winds early in September. It had occurred 'to him that the cause of the failure of the crops in the Esperance district could. not be at tributed to the rainfall. It would be" a distant hope to look forward' to the land becoming good for wheat growing. It was very patchy..There were some fair sized areas which would return anything from 16 to 25 bushels, but 'he had been sur pr-...
