No Title [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 13 February 1914
WHEN the word-spinning demagogue, from the height of his soap-box ele vation, clamors insistently for the "abolition of the wages' system" and the " right of the workers to the "whole product of their toil," it is fair to assume that be does not know what he is talking about. It would, however, be unfair to assume that the general mass of thoughtful Aus tralians are as ill-informed. A few elementary economic principles, simply stated, serve to explode the perennial fallacy. And they are always opportune. What do we mean by the term " wages " ? And who is the " worker" ? There are manual workers; and there are brain workers. Each is entitled to fair remuneration for honest effort. Leave the capitalist out of considera tion for a moment, and examine the problem apart from his interest. The typical business man hires his capital as he hires his labor, and pays the current interest for its use. He buys the use of the capital and labor and land he needs at the lowest market prices. He ne...
MOTORING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 13 February 1914
IOTORING NOTES. (BY DUNLOP.) A novel motor propeller attach. ment for use on bicycles has been marketed in Canada. The idea, whilst not new, seems to be de veloped on more scientific lines than heretofore. As the result of a long series of experiments a serviceable machine has at last been put on the road, and is said to give some astonishing results. The attachment consists of a three-port two-cycle air-cooled engine, whichgives off 4 h.p. at 2500 revolutions a minute. This is supported on supplementary stays carried out from the back of the saddle pillar lug, and braced with down stays to the back wheel axle after the style of a strong lug gage carrier. A two-blade propeller is attached to the engine crankshaft, so that it serves also as a flywheel. The width of the propeller is about that of the ordinary handle bars, thus minimising the danger of strik ing objects on the highway. The petrol and oil tanks are attached on the top stays, just at rear of saddle, the engine being set ...

CRICKET. DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. (NOTES BY ORTHOS.) [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 13 February 1914
CRICKET. DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. (NOTES BY ORTHos.) The matches in the District Asso ciation to-morrow are between Rail ways and Havelock, on the oval, and Maryborough and Talbot, at Talbot. There will be little to see in the last-mentioned match, but the oval contest should be a cood one. The Maryborough Club has held a meeting to consider various matters arising out of the unrest that hae recently taken possession of Satur day cricket. One of the first things they decided upon wae to restrict the privileges they have been extending to the Railways club, members considering that as the Railways president (Mr T. Ross), had said they were " not sports," it was hardly likely that Railways should expect any further favors. The meeting also expressed dis agreement with the ruling of the president of the association (Mir H. B. Ewens), in deciding that J. Ross was eligible to play with Railways after having been residing in Castle maine for some months. An echo of the correspondence that ha...

A HOLIDAY TRIP. VISIT TO THE GIPPSLAND LAKES. (No. 1.) [Newspaper Article] — Maryborough & Dunolly Advertiser — 13 February 1914
A HOLIDAY TRIP. VISIT TO THE GIPPSLAND LAKES. (BY "ALLEGRo.") (No. 1.) There is an old saying, "See Venice and die"; but all tourists and others who have visited Cunning hame and its picturesque surround ings say with equal emphasis, "See the lakes and live." Cunninghame (or Lakes' Entrance, as it is often called), faces the Reeve's River (re cently designated Cunninghame Arm), and the main street is built alongside the foreshore, which is fully a mile and a half in length. At the back of the town, in close proximity, is the beautiful backwater of the river known as the North Arm. The settled population of the town, at present, is estimated to be fully 800, but during the holiday season (summer and autumn), it is com puted that there is nearly 3000 per sons residing, for the nonce, in the township area. There are in the town the usual shops and four splendid hotels, and numbers of boarding houses. There is also a fine Mechanics' Hall and bank, besides the Anglican, Catholic, Pres by...

The star picture for this evening will be a fine E lison drama, adapted from the novel by Harrlet Corn stock, " Joyce. of the North Woods." It tells of one John Dale, who sacri ficed everything to save his young brother from disgrace. He attained his object, but was sentenced to five years in prison for his brother's crime.

On his release from prison John Dale assumed the name of Gaston and fled to the Maine woods to begin his life afresh. With illusions shattered, the friendship which he formed with Joyce Birk dale was more like a father than a lover. To Jude Lanzoon, Joyce's accepted lover, the nature of Gaston's attitude was by no means apparent. After their marriage the situa tion did not improve. Gaston ac companied Jude to his home one day and grew a little too warm in his sympathy to Joyce whilst the husba...

Furthler details published regard ing the trouble in connection with the Order of St. Vincent de Paul, the Superior -General of which was deposed a f days ago by Father Sauba, an postolic visitor from Rome, show that the Modernists recently were vic orious in the coun oil eiections of the order.
