"Plying for Hire." [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

"Plying for Hire." The real definition of the words .''plying for hire" has caused, much ; trouble in many shires, and is very unsatisfactory. A case was heard at Cooma recently, when the P.M., Mr. Gates dismissed the case on the ground that the defendant was not "plying for hire." It appeared that he was carrying for the Kyloe mine under contract, and Mr. Gates held that where a man was carrying un der an agreement he was not plying for hire within the meaning of the Ordinance. Plying for hire meant "going about the roads looking for fares, or loading or waiting on a stand ready to take any fare or load ing." This seems to be a very rea sonable interpretation.

Requests for information will be complied with, with as little delay as possible, consistent with the space available in each issue. (The name "Tommy Cornstalk," is used with due apologies to Mr. J.

"Imperialist ((Sydney).-it is an nounced by cable that the Imperial Army Estimates have been reduced by £90,000 for 1911-12, as compared with the votes for 1910-11. The total now to be provided is £27, 690,000, and includes £85,000 for "the promotion and use of flying ma chines." The personnel for the year has been increased by 2200 to a total of 186,400, so there must have been a severe application of the pruning knife in some directions. For 1909 10 the estimates aggregated £27, 435.000, which was a decrease of £24,000 on the previous year, al though there were increases totalling over half a mi...

RURAL WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

RURAL WORKERS. "Farmer's Wife," : (Wattamon dara), writes:-"With reference to rural workers' hours, it appears to me that the interests of tiie hardest worked people, "The Farmers' Wives" lias been overlooked. In many cases they have to work from 14 to 16 hours daily to get through their nu merous duties, and with a baby and young children, it is often'all night work as well, and help is usually un obtainable. The share farmer can work .nine and ten hours in the field, and has no difliculty in attending to his horses and cooking for himself, and I should like to point out that if farm hands are only to work eight hours in the field, it would be quite easy for them to find themselves, as men do in other callings in life, and they would then be more satisfied. The farmer's wife would then have a little- more privacy and home life with her husband and children, and if not well would not be compelled to stand over a hot fire to cook, and v her-work would be considerably light ened. .It ...

THE CAUSE OF SWEATING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

THE CAUSE OF SWEATING. The true cause of sweating is the selfishness and greediness of women themselves. The bargain hunter does not seek to know how the miserable rags from the cheap " ready-made" table are produced. If she did know she would not care in the least. The knowledge that no worker cannot possibly keep body and soul together on the price paid her for making the articles would not cause the bargain buyer 'to hesitate a moment in* mak ing her purchase. " If I don't buy it, somebody else will," is her com ment. This cheap, shoddy rubbish doesn't . last out more than a couple of washings. It is dear at any price, and the buyer Knows it. Yet she 'must have it, because the price is {low. She will buy only . cheap things. The difference between Is. ll%d. and 2s. is everything to her. Women are tlie true cause of the sweating evil-the women who buy without thinking and at the cheapest rates.

THE EFFECTS OF SWEATING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

THE EFFECTS OF SWEATING. It is a coincidence that in Londorf just now there is great interest taken in the question of the sweated woman worker, on account of the celebrated battle of Sidney-street. In that enormous collection of workers it has been found that the alien seam stress is the chief victim of the sweater. These women, some of whom came so prominently forward in recent events, work for foreigners, who get most of the ready-made trade into their own hands, as the big firms place their work out in that manner. The Russian, Pole, and Lithuanian women who actually make the clothes can live on a gherkin and a piece of bread .and butter a day, and they hand most of their wretched pittance over to their men folk,; who are all Anar chists. These men will not work themselves, but sponge on the girls. All this as a condition of the work 01 some women is of great interest to Australian women, as it is only a difference in degree and not in kind. The wrong done by sweating breaks out...

THE SWEATING EVIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

THE SWEATING EVIL. Closely connected with the hours which working women spend at their toil is the sweating evil, reference to which wits made by Mrs. Dwyer at a recent meeting of the Women's Committee of the Political Labour League.' .From what was then said, it seems that sweating is rampant in our Jiiiust. vv omen white workers^ are the worst paid of any. China men have a large say in the manu facture of wJiiLe .wear;, and their factories give rather lower rates than do similar places run by Eng lish employers. A very clever article by Miss Ruby Davies in the "Sun" last week drew attention to the wretched rates of pay obtained by workers for both English and Chinese factory owners. The women workers must toil ail day to obtain 2s. a dozen for making little petticoats. .X.-1SS Davies visited women sewing at home for wholesale buyers, and found "that the sweating evil is not in the least exaggerated.

HOURS OF WOMEN WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

HOURS OF WOMEN WORKERS. Tlie rural workers are having much of the limelight at present, and in connection with the agitation for shorter working hours, women are waking up to the fact that the work ing day for them is sadly in need of regulation also. The farmer's wife thinks herself well-off for leisure if her hours do not run to more than 11 or 12. An eight-hours' day for any woman, who is not in a shop, office or factory seems an almost impossible ideal. It is the long time of the domestic worker that causes most of the trouble, culminating in the servant famine, which we are now undergoing in the city. Girls re fuse to go to an all-day place, and a mistress now thinks herself lucky if she can persuade a maid to come in for half a day. By alternating two, and working them in shifts, the all-day service difficulty is got over in many a suburban household. The hours for women workers in the household really require regulating. But as yet no practical solution of the difficulty has ...

INSECT PESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

INSECT PESTS. Everybody is wondering where the plague of fleas has arisen. Together with the mosquitoes, these tiresome pests are making life hideous at pre sent. As a sign of the times one lias only to observe the chemists5 win doAvs, which are full of all kinds of infallible remedies, new and old, for tiio extermination of insect life. The rnins are blamed as the cause of the lively and exuberant flea, while the mosquito is even worse than he usual ly is at this time of year, the same cause being assigned for this pest also. Washing all floors with lysol very much diluted in water is about the best flea preventive, also a good insect powder is needed for beds and bedding. For mosquitoes, a thorough fumigation is often better than ?.i tronella or oil of lavender. To burn some damp, straw sprinkled with brown sugar in a tin dish is a .splen did way to get rid of mosquitoes. Doors and windows should be shut, and. after the fumigation, opened up. The smoke is unpleasant, but wiil soon...

Discussion followed on the subject, the Mayor promising to inquire into each case, and carry out what lie conceived to be the most urgent. He said it would be useless to attempt to do everything that Avas required, in view of the depleted state of the treasury chest. Is the Council not aware of the existence of Regulation 6, 13, which says,-"At the close of each financial year . . . all authorisations of expenditure and votes of money therefor shall lapse, etc., etc."?

SLEEVES AND SLASHINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 March 1911

SLEEVES AND SLASHINGS. It is most unfashion-like of thi-~ present mode to be so very : constant to one style as she is in the case of the Magyar blouse and sleeve. The shoulder and sleeve in one is umv the accepted form of gown construc tion-from which we don't app-j;;.r to be ever released. With the Turkish skirt to keep it company, we are pro mised another novelty in the slashed skirt, a kind of Directoire effect, the side seams of the skirt being opened up for some inches and slashed across with tabs. It is not likely that we shall see this notion carried out in any sensational degree. With the liigli-waisted gowns, there is a back pleat from the belt nearly to the hem, and wherever trains are seen they are square.

The Clerk said the amount must be paid in ad vance, but before it could be recov ered by law, service must be ren dered. The Finance Committee are to report on the question.
