SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

SPORIJING NOTES. Whew the coastal trainers were on the fields at the last annual round of goldfields meetings, they left here under -the impression that the local horses were 'a moderate lot taken all round, and, to a cer tain extent, they were probably right' althe time. Since then, how ever, proper training facilities have beer available' on the- goldfields, and, almost without exception, the horses all round have improved considerably. Drury Lane, Boa bab, and Blaemount, three of the coastal horses who ran on thr- fields at the holidays' -meetings; managed to run .into places, but not one of them succeeded in winning: Drury Lane's 1odm on the coast just prior tre coming to the fields was very good and he certainly looked like paying his way. In the Final Han dhcap at' Boulder he was placed badly righc to the turn for home, and was probably unlucky, but the winner (High Guard) was conceding him 27 Lb., and was back tivth him f*ey most of -the " journey.

THE Western Argus PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, JANUARY 9, 1917. THE WILSON GOVERNMENT'S EXTRAVAGANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

THE r iestemr Arg3uA PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. KALGOORLIE, JANUARY 9, 1917. THE WILSON GOVERNMENT'S EXTRAVAGANCE. The estimates of revenue and ex penditure that were passed last month through both Houses of Par liament displayed no evidence whatsoever that the Centralisation Government proposed to do what Mr.- Frank Wilson and -his col leagues, in season and out of sea son. declared that the Scaddan Government ought to have done namely, "stop the financial drift" and "live within its means." The Government brought down pro posals for most burdensome t'axar t4ion-taxcation that in our opinion is altogether unnecessary-and esti. mated that at the end of next June the deficiency would be £1,856,644. Mr. Wilson came into office in July, and at the end of that,- month the accumulated deficit of the late Gov ernment stood at £1,494,239. There fore, according to the. new Trear surer's own estimates, and despite his heavy increased taxation the deficit during the remaining eleven months of t...

OUR MOTHER TONGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

OUR MOTHER TONGUE. The great;. world war, which has brought together men of as many divers tongues as ever were heard, on the pain of Shinar, when the Tower of Babel was abuilding, must have some effect on modern lan guages. Already we learn that French and E nglisli soldiers have, for 'thelr, mutual intelligence, de vised a cwanmon language, which answers fairly well for the simple, praecicai purposes of campaigning. They have not time to learn each others' tongues, and, therefore have invented a brief hybrid vocabulary as a "modus vivendi," or, rather, "loquendi." But the. international complexities of speech on .the Franco-Flemish front, are a mere bagatelle compared with those that exist in the Balkan Peninsula. Gen eral Sarrail has under his command on the Macedonian front speakers of French, of English, of Italian, of modern Greek, of Russian and Ser-, bian and Slavonic. Opposed to them are 'soldiers whose speech ranges from Turkish to Hungarian, Magyar, German to Bulgar, Sla ...

THE QUEENSLAND FLOODS Brisbane, Jan. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

THE QUEENSLAND FLOODS Brisbane, Jan. 4. ,The latest report from Claremont states, on Wednesday, December 27, that light rain began falling in Clare mons, and also at several other places in the Claremont district. Several light showers fell during the afternoon, but about nightfall very heavy rain commenced, and continued all through' the night, be ing driven in sheets before a ttrong wind.. Constable She p herd, . who was on duty at midnight, gave warning at once when he found the creek rising with wonderful rapid ity, but people mostly gave no heed to the warning. Before daylight most of the residents on the flat, where danger is usually apprehend ed, received warning, but only a few crossed the bridge to the south side. Up till- daylight, only Sandy Creek had been bringing down flood water, but later a rapid rise com menced.. indicating probably that Wolfang Creek was . also coming down over its banks. Now came the catastrophe which many of the older residents feared would occur ...

A REMARKABLE ORGANISATION WAR-TIME GROWTH OF THE Y.M.C.A. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

SIEMAUKABLE DRCHAISATION WAR-TIME GROWTH OF THE Y.M.C.A. (By D.G.M.) In the medley of beliefs and opin ions that form the community of a nation, it is a big thing for the name of any organisation to become a "household word." But of the Y.M.C.A. this is said advisedly. For one thing, there is probably not a soldier in our King's uniform who has not at some 'time been a welcome guest of the association, while to every man in the ranks the ever-open door beneath the Red Triangle provides the touch of home to which the weary fighter is in vited. And just now there is scar cely a home without its vacant chair, its anxious parent; wife, sister or sweetheart, asking, "Where is my wandering 'boy I" But, withal the asking, confident in the knowledge that the Y.M.C.A. -offers to the wanderer a "shelter- front the Nla*t" -in the widest sense of that term. With the cloudj-burst of 1914 a huge opportunity, demanding imme diate decision, thrust itself upon the Y.M.C.A. By qualities of .leadershi...

THE PRESENT WAR POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 9 January 1917

THE PRESENT WAR POSITION. The emphatic refusal of the En tente Powers to consider peace pro posals. at the present juncture ban ishes the prospect of any cessation of hostili'ies for at least many months. The. military position. in Europe is not likely to be maaerially altered before the- spring, when it is expected that an allied offensive on a stupenduous scale will- be be gun on All fronts. The Allies will then have had nearly three years to prepare, which may seem on first thoughts a long time, but does not seem so long when the fact is re membered that the Germans were preparing for generations for "Der Tag." Armies take .time to drill; there was at the outset a dearth of drill instructors and officers; the troops have to be clothed and fed and a vast organisation completed; warks have to be. construe'ed for the manufacture of ammunition, rifles, machine guns, . heavy ord I nance, aeroplanes and all The other requirements of war.
