FEDERAL ISSUES. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 February 1914

FEDERAL ISSUES After many conferences, the People's Party, the People's Liberal Party, and the Austra lian Women's National League, have agreed to unite in the selec tion of candidates to contest the six Victorian seats in the Senate, should there be a double dissolu tion. Every member of any one of the leagues who is financial a month bsfore the ballot tnay vote. Nominations will be re ceived by each of the leagues, and will be forwarded to a central body which is to arrange fur the ballot. Probably the preferen tial vote will be adopted, and the pre-election will be a little later than the 23rd of March, the last day on which the nominations will be received. The concerted action of the three leagues is a long step to wards the solidarity of the Liberal Party, without which victory cannot be won- Whilst Labor has a cast iron organisation, under which it is impossible for two laborites to oppose each other at the polls, it is not enough that liberal^ should agree on cer tain genera...

COAL-MINE K.C. SPENT A YEAR UNDERGROUND Mr Leslie Scott, K.C., M.P., has often surprised both his colleagues at the Bar and litigants in coal-mine disputes ivlth his "inside knowledge." The secret o£ how he acquired it was revealed in the Court of Appeal on No vember 23, In a case concerning work in a South "Wales colliery, when Lord Justice Vaughan Williams asked, after a clear and lucid argument by Mr Leslie 'Scott: "Have you ever been down a mine?" "I spent a year doivn one before I came to the Bar," replied Mr Scott. Later Mr Scott said to a representa tive o£ "The Dally Mail": "When I was reading for the Bar it struck me that a practical knowledge of collieries would be o£ value to me in my future career. X knew a number of colliery managers at Wigan, and with thelj Permission I was able to enjoy a run of the mines. I have found the experi ence gained in that year useful on many occasions."

With regard to the statement that it was unfair to ask re sidents to' give land for railway con. struction, lie could not agree with the proposer of the toast. That some might have to pay more than others lie was prepared to admit, but that they should pay for the land was a sound economic dootrine. Were thoy to go back to the old days when apple and orange trees had to be paid for at £30 or £40 each?

WHITE ANTS. PREVENTIVE METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 3 March 1914

WHITE ANTS. PREVENTIVE METHODS. The inquiries by a correspon dent on this matter are replied to by Mr Froggatt, Government Entomologist for New South Wales, who says:-" The food of these insects is wood or vegetable matter of all kinds, and the. wonderful instinct that enables them to find their way upwards through feet of clay or brickwork to the wood above is very remark able. As prevention is better than cure, the more perfectly the house being built is isolated from the ground beneath the better chance there is of keeping out the white ants. All floors should be raised above the surrounding level, so high that a man can get under the building and have access to the woodwork. In many of the cases where houses are badly damaged by white ants, the floor joists will be frequently found resting upon, or only a few inches of the Ground "In country bouses where timber supports or piles are used, thev should be charred or tarred, and if half a pound of salt be placed in each hole beneat...
