gMfom & gouiloug Published Every TUESDAY and FRIDAY. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1914. WORKERS' COMPENSATION ACT. Employers of labour in Victoria fire just awakening to the fact that another gross piece of imposition has been practised upon them in the pass age of an Act compelling them to pay-compensation to workmen injured by accidents while at their work, .this precious Act provides that in the case a workman gets seriously injured .or killed while wilfully mis conducting himself at his work his employer is m^de responsible up to £500. Without being protected by insurance n!net:en-twcntioths of coun try employeis would be utterly ruined by the imposition of such an out l-iiscous penalty. The Country Party very wisely and fairly pro posed that of the insurance premium the employer should pay one-half, the ytate one-sixth and the workman two-sixths. This would not have been a hardsftip to the workmen whose wage3 have all been incrcased recently, but Mr Watt capitulated to phe Labo...

IIOW. THE MONEY GOES ! The following extracts have been Sent to us for publication from a private letter to one of our members: -"The Experimental Farm- at Bat chelor is a demonstration farm, and the only thing demonstrated so far is how to spend money for the smallest possible result! "When the place was started two years ago, they bought over £1500 worth of horses, chiefly Clydesdales, costing about £80 a piece, aud a couple of thoroughbred stallfons tlv' cost. £400 or £500, and over since then have been importing fodder from the south at a cost of about £12 a ton.
