"The Dispatch" WEDNESDAY, MARCH 4. Published Wednesday and Saturday The reformer or the inventor who succeeds in improving the means of communication between different countries, and thereby brijgs people into closer touch, is a public benefactor. The scattered parts of the human family are brought into closer communion, thereby as sisting to break down the insular and foolish prejudices that spring from want of knowledge and understanding. In an Empire such as ours, embracing as it does about twelve million square miles, with a population of about 450 millions of people, any scheme of Imperial inter-communication which will bring the various parts of the system into closer touch with I&lt;ondou, the nerve centre, is of paramount importance. A cable post for the million would have far-reaching effects, for apart from the boon that it would confer on trade and commerce, it would come into contact with the social life of the people. At present cable rates are so high that only...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914
To the Editor. Sir—The prosperity of Australia I is dependent oti its production which can only be increased by more population. The stream of , immigration is decreasing, the j market for country lands is stag- j nant, while that for town lots is booming. This can only be ex plained by the fact that the millions spent by our governments is mainly on unreproductive works, that divert the labour from the land to the towns. The greatest expendi ture is on defence, an ever increas ing and one entirely unproductive. This money, at present over 5 millions a year, would be sufficient to establish the initial water chan nels for three Milduras. That is, would be sufficient to start every year a wealth producing industry employing 180,000 people. That there is plenty of room for de velopment is most obvious from the report as to railway construction in the Northern Territory, where it is reckoned the land 200 miles ou either side would be benefited, that is as if the whole of Victoria were ...

CORRESPONDENCE. [It must be distinctly understood we do j not in an-v way identify ourselves with j ■opinions expressed by correspondents. ] I To the Editor. In view of the seething discon tent concerning the control and management of the Mortlake Com mon which prevails, _ it is surpris-1 . . . fooilp npn than I in? that a more lacue pen man \ mine did not follow up my pre vious letter. Perhaps those who have grievances are waiting till the council meet to see what action wiH be taken to remedy the in justices that are being wilfully and knowingly perpertrated. Publicity js a good thing, and when the truth is given out it hurts un fortunately. Since my previous epistle I have made a study of the 2Ct which governs commons, and have gained sufficient knowledge to know the powers which are vested in the council for controlling same, and the duties which de volve upon the herdsman in the discbarge of his duties.

PARSON AND PUGILIST ARE TABLE COMPANIONS. TOMMY BURNS WINS PRAISE. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914
; PARSON AND PUGILIST ARE TABLE COMPANIONS, TOMMY BURNS WINS PRAISE. A clergyman and a prizefighter sat opposite one another at table on the Ventura during the voyage from Sau Francisco to Sydney. The boxer was Tommy Burns. The clergyman was Rev. H. Owen, of Birmingham, who, having spent about 18 montns in the United States, will now begin an evan gelistic campaign in New South Wales, which will last 12 months. Mr. Owen has had wide ex perience, and has occupied the platform with Mr. Lloyd George on several occasions. During the voyage the parson and the pugilist became friends, and Mr. Owen says that Burns was a genial companion, and that there was a good moral ring about him. The missioner comes to Australia with a high opinion of the country, and though he expects to find it like California in its love for prize fighting, gambling, and sport generally, he also hopes to discover that there is a deep religious tone existing here.
