WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 February 1911

WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION. It is well for employers to clearly understand that the Workmen's Com pensation Act, now in force, is a great extension both of tho -Employers' Lia bility Act of 1897 and tho Common' Law. Employers of four or more hands in any railway, tram, workshop, fac tory, shop, engineering, quarrying, min ing works (other than those coining under the Miners' Accident llelief Act), also, in "any occupation proclaimed .by tho Government to be dangerous," are liable, under tho new Act, to pay com pensation for all injuries sustained'by employees, arising out of or in the course of employment. The scale is: Fatal injury, three years' wages (maxi mum £400, minimum £200;; during disablement, half wages (maximum £1 per week, total payments £200). Tho only defence is serious or wilful mis conduct. Carelessness on the part of the injured, or misconduct on tho part of another employee, is no" defence. It will, therefore, be scon that tho em ployer's risk is complete and continuou...

ENGLAND'S GOOD FORTUNE. ! Enormous Wealth of Her New Coalfields. Tho greatest good fortune which has fallen to this country: r£or many yearB (writes the London . '-SWeekly Tele graph") is the recent, discovery of im portant new coalfields,; wliicli 'seems to show that hitherto we have had but a faint idea of -our _ enormous mineral wealth. Our mining engineers have discovered, and proved their discov eries, that in Yorkshire and contiguous' counties there is an enormous area rich in coal which hitherto has not been tapped. Thus tho neighbourhood of Doncaster, which has hitherto' been purely agricultural, is now rapidly de veloping as a great colliery centre. It lias just been announced that this particular coal area covers 460 square miles, while anothor area of 200 square miles has been found to the north-east, and one of 200 square miles to tho south-east. In the agricultural centres further north ricii deposits have been found, covering an enormous "area, which can only be guesse...

ACTRESSES' QUARREL. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 4 February 1911

ACTRESSES' QUARREL. Last Summer, at the Porte St. Mar tin, the Pheasant gave the Nightingale one in the eye. What it was all about is not clear, hut the Nightingale carried a black eye for some time. The scene of the fray was the green-room of the theatre during an interval between the acts of "Chantecler" (wired the Paris correspondent of the "Daily Telegraph" on November 17). The Pheasant and the Nightingale were second or third understudies of the original actresses in the parts. The case in the police courts seems to have dragged on a long tiin.' for no knotvn reason. A-t the last hear ing the Nightingale had forgotten .ill about her black eye, and bore the Phea sant so little illwill that she withdrew her action for assault and battery. The case, one imagines, might have then been struck off the rolls. But the Court was specially _ keen upon it. The Nightingale having "retired, the Public Prosecutor stepped in. and will carry on the case for the State. The Court insists on hear...

BASUTOS AND DUKE. APPEAL TO THEIR ROTAII "FATHER:" The principal event of this blazing day has been the Duke of Contiaught's meeting with a hundred Basuto chiefs (said the "Daily' Mail's" correspondent on Noveml>er 9). . After a lunchcon given by the Ad ministrator of the Orange Province;1 his Royal Highness and a small party entered the room where the Basutos were gathered. Everyone was. in Euro pean dresd. The costumes were of all kinds. Some of the natives wore riding breeches ah'd old military tu-nics, some frock ooats. Most of them -were in tweed suits. Every variety of hat was represented -the opera hat, the sombrero, the hard felt, the silk, and the straw. In only one respect did uniformity prevail-all wore white collajrs. 1 When' the Duke entered he was greeted with shouts of barbaric wel come, for which the' signal was given by a chief, who then addressed his Royal Highness. The burden of the speech, which was admirably Inter preted by a native, was the hope that the Imp...

HOME FOR INCURABLES "The quality of mercy.is not strained; It blesscth liim that gives and liira who takes." Of all tho institutions in New South Wales whoso' mission is to extend suc cour to the weary and tho sick, perhaps the above stands first, by reason of its unique work. Hospitals and "refuges there are in plenty, whose doors are over open to those who need a helping hand, a lift by tho hard wayside; homes whoro the tired and tho despairing niay lay down their burdens assured of that gentle charity which is tho leaven of life; yet all these, with their magnifi cent toll of good deeds, fail to touch tho pulse of the public as does a con templation of the glorious work carried on in this unostentatious home atltyde.

QUEEN MARY, A SKILLED NEEDLEWOMAN. Queen Mary's attendances at the Ladies' Needlework Guild at the Im perial Institute (writes "M.A.P.") re mind us that she is the most expert needlewoman of the Royal Family, and is rarely to he seen without a needle in her hand during her leisure mo ments. When the Queen stayed at a'eountry house as Princess of Wales, it was quite understood that immediately the ladies adjourned to the drawing-room, the lady-in-waiting would bring her lin^ of needlework to her, and with this she occupied herself constantly, while joining,.of course, in the conver sation. When the new Court has settled down, the Queen will doubtless con tinue her homely practice. . She does not care for cards, :md has no parti cular skill at them, and her example in preferring needlework to the card talile is likely to be widely followed in Society. Queen Mary Is also quite accus tomed to the sowing machine, and she thinks so highly of knitting and cro chet ting as pastimes that she...
