The London Money Market. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
The London Money Market. Considering the spirited character of the public works policy of the Stato and of the Commonwealth we have heard surprisingly little lately of the condition of the London money market. We shall assuredly have to resort to it before long, or, in the alternative, to hold public works in abeyance. Private advices are not of a reassuring character. English capitalists know all about the destruc tive character of the. late drought, the freaks of labor, its hostility to imrai | gration, its spoliatory taxation, and ! its inveterate determination to en croach on the domain of private en terprise. And, according to some ac counts, they seem to know nothing else. Hence, there is a difficulty in ob taining money for Australian pro jects. There is, however, no occasion to be disheartened. The developments compla'ned of are only a passing phase of Australian history. There is ample warrant for the belief that the incubus will be shaken off as light heartedly as it was a...
"What Have You Been Doing Now?" [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
"What Have You Been Doing Now?" Whenever Ministers come forward with assurances that the state of af fairs is not such as it might be sup posed to be, the question invariably asked is, "What have they been doing now?" A Sunday school boy is cre dited, "with having put this question to his teacher in a highly disconcerting manner, "I'm afraid, Tommy, I sha'n't see you in Heaven,'* said the teacher, commenting on some juvenile escapade. "Why, what have you been doing now?" was the innocent and unexpected rejoinder. Mr. .Beeby, Mr. I-Iolman and Mr. Dacey have been lifting up their voices In concert to assure us that Ministers have no in tention of re-establishing the reign of political ascendancy in the railway department; also to disabuse our minds of the impression that the rela- . tions between the Government and the Chief Commissioner are in any way strained. What have they been doing to lead us to suppose that the contrary if as the case? Only that Mr. Dacey, the Treasurer, in who...
Caught Napping. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
Canglit tapping. The single fact that there has been a serious shortage of water in Sydney is sufflc'ent to demonstrate that some one was caught napping. The Water and Sewerage Board shunt the re sponsibility on to the "Works Depart ment. The laKer denies that it was in any way to blame. In rebutting the charge of delay, it incidentally gives us a glimpse of what is considered "quick despatch" by Government de partments. The department states that it received a communication from the Board as far back as August 30, 1909, recommending that certain work for the 'amplification of the water sup ldy should be taken in hand, and car ried to completion during the follow ing five -years. The_ proposals were reported upon by the officers of the Department in the following month ; and were then submitted to the Cab inet, to Parliament, and to the Public Works Committee. "In due course." The Act authorising the work was passed on December 22nd, 1910, four teen months after the requisition had ...
The Late Mr. Justice Cohen. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
The Late Mr. Justice Cohen. General regret is expressed at the death of Mr. Justice Cohen, at the comparatively early age .of 71, when most judges are enjoying life on a lib eral pension. There were three points about the late judge that endeared him to the mercantile, and, later, to the industrial community of Sydney. First his unwearied patience; next his strenuous application to the cases wlv'ch came before him; and, last, but by no means least, the fact that ho had had practical experience of com mercial life, and, therefore, was often able to grasp the force of considera tions which would almost certainly have escaped the attention of a judge' less practised in mercantile matters. It was thought, in some quarters, in deed, that his knowledge of the diffi culties of business life would have prevented him from taking any part in the administration of legislation to egregiously and hopelessly one-sided as the compulsory Arbitration Act. His experience, however, had been on the mer...

THE LUCK OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
THE LUCK OP IT. On Mangrove heights, above the Hawkesbury, two and a half years ago, there -was but one selector in the Po pran Creek part, without postal ser vice nearer than Goeford, 16 miles i east. The department tardily grantea-j a mail once a week.a year ago; now it has been let as a thrice a week i service—Monday, Wednesday, and Fri day, returning Tuesday, Thursday, and 'Saturday. This man Is evidently on velvet, having a special mall service all on his own. We find it a difficulty In getting a mail once a week to places where there are thirty inhabitants, and by the same token should have a mail twice a day instead of only twice a week.
