SOUTH AFRICAN RAILWAY STRIKE THE STRIKE EXTENDS. TO DURBAN, CAPE AND PRETORIA. THE FOOD SUPPLIES. JOHANNESBURG, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 14 January 1914
SOUTH AFRICAN RAILWAY STRIKE TIIE STRIKE EXTENDS. TO DURBAN*, CAPE AND PRETORIA. THE FOOD SUPPLIES. JOHANNESBURG.. Monday. Thero were serious extensions of the railway strike to-day. Half the men employed at the Salt River railway workshops (Capt Prov ince) left their work, and at Durban the Amalgamated Engineers and all the employe's at the railway workshops came out. The contagion spread to Pretoria, where the members of the Builders' and the affiliated societies went on strike in sympathy with the rail way men. The men at the Salt River works struck despite the advice of Mr Hag gar, M.L.A. (Labor), that they should remain at work. Their action gains importance from the fact that the Cape railway employes hold the key :o the situation. The strikers made an abortive attempt to induce all tramway employes to come out. The matter of food supplies is of course one of rhe most important questions if the strug gle is to be a protracted one. Informa- i tiou obtained on this subject to-da...

STALLIONS FIGHT CUP WINNER VICIOVS. VALUABLE HORSE DISS. NEWCASTLE, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 14 January 1914
STALLIONS FIGHT Cup WINNER VICIOVS. VALUABLE HORSE DISS, NEWCASTLE. Tuesday. In a fijrlit with Priuce Foote, win ner of the Melbourne Cup of 1909. the imported stallion Simile sus tained injuries that have resulted in his death. Mr John Brown, of New South Wales, owned Simile, and for many years the horse had been at his stud at Wittingham with Prince Foote and other sires. Ten days ago Simile entered an enclosure oc cupied by Prince Foq>te, and is sup posed to have been immediately at tacked by the Cup wiiiiiec The two stallions fought vicious ly for some time before they were separated. Simile was very roughly treated, and sustained such injuries that Mr Brown ordered him to be de stroyed. A bullet ended the career of the imported stallion. Prince Foote came through the struggle without ajiv ill-effects. He was not even marked. _ j Simile was foaled in 1897, and! was by St. Simon from Mimi (win ner of the English Oaks in 1891) by Barcalcline. He was lookeH upon as one of1 the b...

THE COLOSSEUM FIRE COMMENTS BY FIUE CHIEF. MELBOURNE, Tuesday, [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 14 January 1914
THE COLOSSEUM FIRE COMMENTS BY FIUE CHIEF. j MELBOURNE, Tuesday, i Declaring that the Colosseum and other suburban warehouses like ii had not fully complied with the exist ing building regulations, .Mr H. B. Lee. the Chief Superintenden: of the Metropolitan Fire 'Brigade, stated to day ilv.it full inquiry would be made. 'Continuing, Mr Lee said that all the suburban councils had regulations providing that buildings of the ware house class must, not contain more than 100,000 cubic feet between the en closing walls. The amount of space was slightly varied by the different suburb?, but he could 'nauio many in stances where the law was flagrantly evaded. The Colosseum, ho had been told, contained something like 1,200,000 cubic feet without a break of a fire proof -wall, staircase, or iron doors. If this were true, such laxity meant a menace to the thousands of lives of people visiting the warehouses, and ■seriously endangered adjoining pro perties. "fn the city of Melbourne,'' said Mr L...

BOROUGH VALUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 14 January 1914
BOROUGH VALUATION. .Sir,—I iliink it is about time pro-; perty-owners in Castlemaine stirred j themselves, and ask where the money ! paid in rates each year goes. We | have jumped from 1/ rate to lV3 (in- j eluding the health rate), and now thej Borough Surveyor has made a fresh | valuation, amd in some cases increased) it from 25 to 40 per cent., which is J equal to at least an additional 3d rate.; The Water Supply Department will j now make their charges on the incre-: ased valuation, though no extra iva-1 ter will be consumed. Tenants will j be compelled to pay this increase, as i the higher the valuation becomes, the! higher the rental will be. A large sum is paid each year in rates, yet our j town (the business portion particular- j ly) is more neglected than it has been j for many years, the roads and foot- j paths are in a bad state, and the chan-; nels very much neglected, perhaps this , is for want of more money. Where, \ I ask, does the present revenue go i to? A large por...

THE SPINELESS CACTUS. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 14 January 1914
THE SPINELESS CACTUS. Sir,—This useful and prolific plant is not yet. much known, and it would prove of great value to pastoralists, especially in poor soils, or semi-arid country, where vegetation of any kind exists with difficulty. During the hot. dry seasons, or periods of drought,} when all other kinds of fodder plants; are languishing with the intense heat, this plant would be luxuriant, and be ing of a very rich, moist nature, the necessity for much, if any, water would be greatly minimised, and ii would thus prove the salvation of many stockowners. It can be readily grown in any class of soil, and after the 'first few years will produce about 100 tons per acre of succulent and nu tritious fodder, which can be fed to all classes of stock, and it is highly prai sed by the leading authorities, who say that it. makes beef and 'butler r>i' the best quality Some of the impro ved varieties yield heavy crops of large and well flavored fruit, red, white, and yellow, etc., which mak...

CORRESPONDENCE FILTHY SURROUNDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mount. Alexander Mail — 14 January 1914
CORRESPONDENCE / filthy surroundings. Sir,—For the first time I went to a picture show last night at the Royal Picture Hall, and while waiting for the doors to open, I wandered up a right-of-way attached to the entrance to the hall. The back of the recently deliceused Metropolitan il-Iotel was In a wretched condition. The waste pipes have been emptying into the cellars underneath; another ibuilding has no roof on, and is shored up to prevent a! colla/pse. Several closets are actually j under the same roof as the buildings! occupied—a most disgusting and ab omluaible stato of affairs. A vacant yard attached to the hall is full of filth j and rubbish. I doubt whether a more abominable state of affairs could be found in any civilised town in Ausxra-! lia. I spoke to several others, and was utterly astounded to be informed' that 'the hotel had been granted licen ses for years past, and no urinal pro-! vided for the public. Is there such a thing as a local Board of Health or an inspector...
