Health Matters. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
Health Matters. At Nowra, last week, some 00 or 70 people were affected by sudden sickness. In some instances three or four in the same family suffering. The trouble is attributed to ice cream, which, it appears, was par taken of by all, 011 the previous Sat urday night. Ptomaine poisoning is the complaint, it is said, from which they are suffering.

Illegal Expenditure. Several instances have occurred re cently of municipal councils voting money for unauthorised purposes. The Works Department lias called up on one council to have a refund made of an amount paid to delegates to Sydney to interview public depart ments on councils' business. It is surprising that section 32 (1) of the Actj Avhich says-"allowances or tra velling, expenses shall not be paid by the council . to its aldermen/' should be overlooked.

Mayoral Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
Mayoral Elections. The election of president for Mum bulla Shire, resulted in a tie between two candidates, and a ballot decided the; issue. A local paper declares this act to be illegal, but this is not so, for by the amended Ordinance I) (cb it is enacted that if at any ballot for the position, the votes for two or more candidates are* equal, lots shall be drawn to decide which of such candi dates is successful. Aid. A. Shaw lias been elected Mayor of Yass. When returning thanks, he said he had always been a strict temperance man, and believ ed in adhering to his principles. Therefore, instead of asking the coun cil to drink his health, as was cus tomary on such occasions, he handed to the Council Clerk a cheque for five guineas as a donation to the Yass Hospital. Aldermanic teetotalism is evidently a public asset in Yass.

Recreation Reserve. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911
Recreation Reserve. The Lands Department lias noti fied the Baulkliam Hills Shire Coun cil that the Minister has approved of the Council being appointed trustees of the reserve. It would be neces sary for it to acquire the power of section 107 (v) before it could le gally expend the siiire funds on the subject area, so the council decided to make application for this to be done.

Sanitary Charges. Some people think that the charges for sanitary service cannot heV en forced in advance. The L.G.

Personal [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
dt Personal The Prime Minister, Mr. Andrew Pislier, sent, a cheque for £10 during the week; towards the strike funds .of", the Victorian agricultural imple ment '/makers'.- The action, however one may feel inclined to criticise its prudence, stands in another aspect as a striking example of being prepared to hack organisation with solid- cash. ; Mr. J. C. Watson, ex-Prime Minis ter, smiles a broad smile these days. ..His scheme for financing a Labour daily paper progresses well. That, big organisation, the A.W.U., raised £25,000 in levies last year, and in tends to repeat the dose this year, Other unions have promised £18,000 during the twelve months, and any sum raised will be considerably aug mented by the R.W.U. at an early "The Minister said he proposed to make available several million acres of Crown land, and to mark his term of office by a large increase in settlement."-News Item.

STATE LABOUR MEMBERS THE REFERENDA. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
STATE LABOUR MEMBERS THE REFERENDA. A rather startling announcement was made yesterday, to the effect that more than half the State Labour party are opposed to any alteration of the Constitution. At a meeting of the party, it was decided that any op posed to altering the Constitution should be allowed to remain neutral, and ndt be made to advocate a course diametrically in opposition to their convictions. Mr. Watson and Mr. Lamond, in an swer to an interviewer, stated that, "The party had no intention of ask ing those against the referenda to take any other course." It would be interesting to ask these Labour lead' ers if they believed in the old adage: "He who is not with us is against us." The outstanding feature of this latest announcement is the freedom now given to followers of labour to exercise their own judgment, and vote "No" if they feel so disposed, to the questions embodied in the re/ei;enda. At the general meeting of share holders in Messrs. Winchcombe, Car son, Ltd;, h...

Notes of the Week. Mr. Fisher's Plea. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911
Notes of the Week. Mr. Fisher's Plea. The Prime Minister's opening speech upon the Refertvmla threw absolutely 110 new light upon the claims of his party to have the powers of * the Common 1 - -' wealth extended to the extent desired by * the -Labour* Party. It was an unsatisfactory speech in its notable lack of analysis of the results likely to follow the enlargement of the dominion of the Federal Government. But what the public got from Mr. Fisher was a, comparison of the Australasian Fede ration with the Soutli African Union, much, in Mr. Fisher's view, to tlic disadvantage of the former. The conditions of Soutli Africa are en tirely. . different . from those in Aus tralia, and while centralisation is probably the best idea for South Af rica with its elements of disunion in race and colour, a federation is as clearly the best thing for Australia, Mr. Fisher evidently thinks other wise, and his speech revealed his con viction that the victory of the Labour Party, with regard to th...
