Goulburn Gaol. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 25 August 1917
Goulburn Gaol. The southern city has keen .to a considerable extent dependent on the various Government institutions associated with the town. Amongst these is the Goulburn Gaol, which is used for the treatment of first offenders. The principle of classification, so as to prevent men who have had their first acquaintance with crime, being contaminated by old offenders, is being carried out with a good deal of success. Men which help them to obtain work after they are discharged, and aie- incidentally of service to the State. It seems extraordinary that, in spite of the educational facilities provided by tlie Government, a number of young men are still being received into the N.S. Wales prisons who are almost illiterate. A schoolmaster, how ever, is present to attend to these prisoners, and thus they obtain a training of which they were evidently deprived in their younger years. The Compendium is the name of the prison news paper, and the young men are kept in touch by its means with...

THE TALK OF THE TOWN Inevitable. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 25 August 1917
TALKorTncTOWft BY7ATLER^- Inevitable. From what I henr, the further conferences which took place between the (strikers and the Government were bound to fall, There Is no doubt that Mr. Frascr's frank explanations to the leaders had a good effect In convincing them that the prejudice against the card system as cdoptcd in the workshops was to a large extent unjustified. The trouble was, however, that, having adopted a bold front, it was difficult for the Union officials to concede the demand* of the Government without compromising their position with the men. This has often been the finding of a formula which will save the face of both sides. The Conspiracy Charge. Of the three men charged with conspiracy, two are, I understand, natives of Australia, Messrs. Thompson and Kavanagh, and the third, Mr. Willis, came from South Wales, where he was, amongst other things, a lay preacher, a short time before the war. It has always surprised me how quickly some of these ntwehums obtain promine...
