The Commissioner, Colonel Evans, is receiving the innovation- with perfect complacency, and, although it is understood he has been ap proached by one of the southern de-j partments to. co-operate in seeking the postponement of its application, ! he intimated to the press to-day that he-had declined to interfere. It was a Commonwealth matter, he said. and he did not see that it; would present any inconvenience.

T'IE IMPERIAL CONFERENCE Mr. Lloyd George when recently outlining the policy of his Govern ment in the House of Commons, acknowledged' the splendid assist aiice the Dominions had given of their own free will to the Old Country. He went on to say Great ideals of national fair play and justice appealed V. the dominions just as insistently as .to Britain. The dominions recognis ed throughout that the fight was not a selfish one, that the quarrel was not inerely European, but that there were great world issues involved, with which their child ren were as concerned as ours. The new Government were as full of gratitude as the old for the super-valour which our kinsmen. had shown in so many stricken fields, but that was not why he introduced the subject. -The rea son was that the Government felt that the time had come when the Dominions ought to be more .for mally consulted as to the uirogress and course, of the war, and as to the steps that ought to 'be taken to - secure victory, and' the...

FEDERATED MINERS' ASSOCIATION. HALF-YEARLY REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 2 January 1917
FEDERATED MINERIS' ASSOCUIA HALF-YEARLY REPORT. The half-yearly report and balance sheet of the State secretary of the F.M.E.A. (Mr. Geo McLeod) have just been issued. The report states, inter alia: It will be noticed from the balance sheet that the credit balance of the management fund has increased from £677 17/10 to £699 17/4. This increase is more than accounted for by the adjustments that have been made. The amount credited to the fund from income was £310 13/8, and the amount debited £402 18/4, show ing a nett loss for the half-year of £92 4/8, a result which clearly shows that rigid economy will be required to keep this fund solvent. It is only fair to point out that the ex penditure has been heavier than usual on account of the conference, officers' expenses, and printing re ports being responsible for an ex penditure of over £100. There was also an eipenditure of £23 3/4, by way of grants to the Laverton Union which have been debited to manage ment, but which can rightly be...

-SALE OF POSTAGE STAMPS Sydney, Dec.. 7. The Postmaster-General has been looking into the question of whether persons licensed to sell postage stamps should receive commission. In the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada. South Africa and India no commission at all is al lowed, and of all countries, "only about two pay more than I per cent. On this subject, Mr.-Webster stat ed to-day that payment of commis sion had brought abuses in its train, I. was considered. however, that f., instead of ohtting, out commission altogether, as in the countries men tioned, the commission was made i1 per cent., the deparsment would be acting in harmony with what was done in other places. In view of representations, action in the direc tion of reducing the rate of commis sion would be suspended until the completion of further. inquiries.

A REAL LONDON FOG London, Nov. 16. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 2 January 1917
A REAL LONDON FOG (From Our Special Representative). London, Nov. 16. On Monday evening we had. a re gular old-lime -London fog, with?ut the brilliant public lighting, with out the "flares" that used to be set going in main thoroughfare;.. and withouat the guidance of house and shop lights. It seemed a "special production." for the entertainment of the inany Australasians and Canadians who, coming here for the first time, wished, to experiehce not only the Tower, Rotten -Row, sausage and mashed potatoes, and other London sensations but a creditable fog, something that even the oldest inhabitant would not compare slightingly with the fogs that he used to eat- when he was a boy. On Tuesday morning, in a Strand hotel, where many Austra lian soldiers are staying, there was' a great fury for letter-writing abou-. it-they were all sending enthusiastic descriptions home-and one could plainly hear the word "fog" being scratched out by doz ens of pens. A Press representative asked them 'what...
