Uthgow Ironworkers' Association. TRULY GENEROUS. The LJtngow Ironworkers!' Association lias reason to be proud of itself. The mem bers, although some are poorly paid com paratively, have contributed loyally to the Patriotic Fund, ever since it was inaugura ted. In all they have contributed £437. The ?contributions to the fund were commenced in September last, when there were about 450 men employed. Now there are between ?600 and 700 men on the works. We under stand that 6. and C.

Protest Against Factory Removal. EXTRACTS FROM SPEECHES. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 31 July 1915
Protest Against Factory Removal. EXTRACTS FROM SPEECHES. Ow'ing to extreme pressure on our space, we can find room only for extracts fiom the speeches made at the public meeting in the Town Hall on Monday Elgin last to pro test against the removal of the Small Arm* Factory. Major Bracey presided over a very largo gathering. The chairman referred to the ridiculous nature of the proposition, and compared Canberra to Lithgow to the detri ment of the former. The present factory had cost £250,000, while the employees had somewhere about £50,000 in land and resi dences. Mr. Carr said he could assure Lithgow folk that the Government did not expect to interfere with the factory just now. He could not find words strong enough to con demn the Works Committee, who, given a great mission, came forward with this in sane proposal. The proposal was not yet before the House, but when it did it would get short shift, because the majority of the House was against it. Not only was Lithgow an ideal pla...

The V.R.C. and the War. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 31 July 1915
The V.R.C. and the War. Although the V.R.C. at the commencement of the war fatuously proposed to discontinue racing throughout the State while John Bull was in grips with Kaiser. Bill, it has since altered its views in difference to the public opinion; and, in a letter to the papers on Saturday last, the chairman (Mr. R. G. Casey) says: 'To stop racing would throw large numbers of oeonle out of employment. which, in this time of stress, would result in them being unable to maintain them selves and families.' With the sanction of members, at the annual meeting to be held next month, it is proposed that, until the termination of the war — or until such time thereafter as the committee shall consider adviseable — the V.R.C. will devote the whole of its annual profits, from July 1 last (the commencement of the financial year) to such patriotic or war relief purposes as the committee may think fit. The recent Grand National meeting,, which realised a profit of over £500$, is embraced in ...

WHAT WE DO CLAIM. Pneumonia generally results from a cold or an attack of influenza, but can be pre vented if Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is taken at the first symptom of either. Many people who have had every reason to fear pneumonia have warded it off by the prompt use of this remedy. We don't claim that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will cure pneumonia, but that it will prevent it i^, taken at the first symptom of a cold, in fluenza or bronchial trouble. Sold every where.
Sacrificing Soldiers to Populate Canberra. IS IT GRASS STUPIDITY—OR WORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 31 July 1915
Sacrificing Soldiers to Populate Canberra. IS IT CRASS STUPIDITY— OR WORSE. The fate of the Empire — of the whole civilized world — hangs on the supply of munitions and men. It is the lack of them that has caused such awful losses. Russia to-day is being defeated solely for the want of munitions. Yet our Federal Cabinet is trying to curtail our output of 'rifles. Is it sheer idiocy or what? In any other country it would be called by a harsher name. They know that every man and every rifle is wanted, and that they cannot even equip the men they are sending. And in the face of all this they decide — in the midst of the bloodiest war the world has ever seen — to move the Small Arms Factory. Simnlv because they want to start the Federal Capi tal, and they do not know how to populate it, except by stealing. That would be quite bad enough, but they are going to do it also by sacrificing the lives of the very men who are fighting for our existance. These ? may seem strong words, but unfort...
N.S.W. R. and T.A., ESKBANK BRANCH. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 31 July 1915
N.S.W. R. and T.A., ESKBANK BRANCH. The Eskbank branch of the above has in deed distinguished itself in connection with the Australia Day movement. With a mem bership of slightly over 60, they have only 12 slackers — 49 of them giving no less an amount than £31/0/8. This is an absolute answer to the rumours that the railway folk give hardly anything to any of these funds. The sum raised has been sent to their headquarters, where the regular con tributions are sent. Tbis society maintains two hospitals for wounded soldiers, one at Netley, in England, and one in Flanders, in France. An extra special effort is now to be put forth, the result of which will ap pear in our next issue.
WORKERS' EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 31 July 1915
WORKERS' EDUCATIONAL ASSOCIATION. Al Dip meeting cT the Eight. Hour Com mittee on Thursday night, Mr. Stewart, :;on eral secretary of the Workers' Educational Association, was allowed to address that gathering. He said the association was om LiitiL uciu iur na iiuijiuht! ui« tMluCiUIIli; Ol ttfe masses, so that they might, be omand ?paled and rise to th-? position they were justly entitled to, The association was only 12 years of ago, but had already fiG.udO students in England, and already it was (irmly established in Australia and NVw Zealand. It was available to all as ihe foes were such that anyone could pay; in fact, if a person could not pay them, arrange ments could be made whereby they could avail themselves of the, benefits bestowed. The chief thing was that they did not try to put anything into the .students, but that they would develop what was already in them. It was, in short, a university edu cation for almost nothing. The. cost to each student would not foe more than ...

They are also ladies' out fitters.

DON'T RUSH COBAR JUST YET. Quite a number of miners and other work ers now in Lithgow, but who have their homes in Cobar,, are anxious to return as soon as the mine works are re-opened.
