OROYA LINKS g.OM. CIRCTULAR TO 8HAREHOLDERS Ioeference .t the recent shutting down of -the Oroya Links mine. i mitde* in a circular issued to share hclders in London on November 18. It reminds- them of thlie qubstion raised at The 'last genjerai mnenting of the companay as .to whether, in view 'of the great advpop.a inapricws of "tores and the shortage au d in efficiency of labour, it would'not be advisable to close down the mine until more normal conditions return ed. At than time the managers at •Kalgoorlie were averse eo that course, as they thought the mine might still be worked profitably. The difliculties, however, become more accentuated, and the directors have determined to conserve the ore reseives until mining conditions im prove, rather than continue to de plete them while crushing at a loss.

HUNTING PLANES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 2 January 1917

3 HURTING .'PLANES. F The French, and probably all o' t'her fighting armies have divided i their air service into two distinct - classes-the observation machines 'I and the fighting machines, or,as they ' call them, hunting 'planes. The lat ter are small . machines, built as Ilightly as. possible, and able' to travel at an enormous speed.- In front of the tirman is' his ma chine gun, which fires straight ahead, the bullet. just passing clear of the whirling'propeller blade. The ingenious- invention which makes it possible for the airman to fire through the circle traced -by' the pro peller, revolving as it does- at an. unthinkable speed, is of German origin. The allies found the device' on a calptured machine, and adopt ed it- without acknowledgment Q9t patenit rights. The airman can ,se it without moving from' his seat, for. these weapons are necessarily fixed, and the airman aims not his guni but his machine at the enemy.
