THE WHEAT DEAL Perth, Dec. 19. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 26 December 1916
THE WHEAT DEAL Perth, Dec. 1?. The Minister for Railways and Industries, Mr. Mitchell reached Albany to-day by the Katoomba from Melbourne. Mr. Mitchell had very little fresh o say regarding the wheat deal. e said that the sale would not have been possible nor would the shipment of the wheat been prac ticable if the crops of the northern hemisphere had not proved a par tial failure. The Prime Minister was now negotiating with the Bri tish Government for the.purchase of the Australian crops for 1917-1.8. If the crops of the northern hemi sphere turn out well the British Government piny not need Austra lian wheat, bit if there is a big crop in Australia next year the fact will be a satisfactory assurance against possible short supplies.

LADY PENSIONERS' HOME [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 26 December 1916
LAUY PENSIONERS' HOME Esome months ago ile .Goldfield, Women's C!ub inaugurated a scheme to provide old lady pen sioners with a quiet home in which to spend their declining years. Later Sa house, .si'tuated at the foot of the reservoir hill and opposite Victoria Park, was purchased and has now been turned into a cosy little cot- - tage. Yesterday afternoon quite a crowd attended the home, the oc casion being the official opening by the Mayors of Kalgoorlie and Boul der and the chairman of the Kal goorlie Roads Board. Mr. H. W. Davidson said the home reflected the greatest credit on those who had worked so hard to establish it. The old age pension was one of the best and most bene volent Ithings the Federal Govern ment had ever introduced. It was a great mistake, in his mind, to re gard it was eliarity. It was the ab solute dut$ of the people of Ana tralia to provide for those who had borne the great hardships of pion eering in the early days. He had very much pleasure in joining wit...

LABOUR LEAGUE AND PAILIAMENT ..Melbourne, Dec. 22. When the attention of the Prime Minister, Mr. Hughes, was drawn to the story told by Mr. Cahill, regarding the action taken by the New South Wales Political Labour League executive, in connection with recruiting, he said that he was not at all surprised at the action of the P.L.L. executive. Its latest decision was in keeping with its general attitude towards °the pro secution of the war. It. contrived to pose before the electors during the' referendum campaign as being opposed to conscription, while strongly in favour of voluntary en listment. It had now thrown off its mask, and stood clearly reveal ed in its true colours as opposed to recruiting in- any shape or form. How far irts prohibit.ion upon mem bers of the Federal Parliamentary Labour party in regard to their par ticipation in the recruiting cam paign would be obeyed by the re presentatives of the people. remain. ed to be seen, but one thing was clear, and that was that by...

Westonia, Dec. 2S. Five of the lees notable. Westonia gold mining companies are taking full advantage of the liberal exemp tion from labour conditions granted by. the Mines Department.. The adna May East and Main Lode kc mpanies, according to local of &cial intimation, are hardly likely to come to light again at the termi Iaation of the six months granted- that is, as far as the at .present ~wners are concerned; and the Greenfinch, Junction, and Golden Point companies certainly might With advantage make more business like arrangements for 1917 than has up to date characterised any one of the three properties named.
