BEES AND BEER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
BEES AND BEER. I There is evidently something m beer judging by the way the curious were attracted to the Exchange Ho tel yesterday afternoon to watch a swariii' of' bees which had settled to one of' Host Watt's verandah joists. Whether it was the old adage that is .purely-Irish, "better a dhrop of good whiskey than the blow of a stick," that enticed them there, or whether they had an inkling that- the Ex change Hotel would like to start a honey factory, made on the premises, and wholly Australian, we don't know, but it is an ill-wind that blows no one any good, and we opine that our worthy host of the Exchange' did q good,trade while the bee draw was on hand.
THE RABBIT STRIKE. MR. CURTIS' IMPRESSIONS. SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
T1IE RABBIT STRIKU. MR. CURTIS' IMPRESSIONS. SYDNEY, Friday. A reporter Interviewed several rab j biters and freezing works proprietors 1 to-day in an effort to get nt, the roo! of the trouble. "What is your griev ance?" "Simply that we want better all-round prices for our labor. We consider that 5/ per dozen pairs is ? fair price, and that is what we are asking £or." "But have you ascer tained whether the price is reason able, -and do you realist the produce market fiuctuuates for rabbits as well as for other products?" "Oh, ray troubles," was the answer. Mr. Cur tis, of Curtis and Curtis, who owns several freezing works in the coun try, attributes the real cause of the strike partially to the state of the Home market, and partially as a re sult of political capital-making. The industry during the past few years has seen the crisis in England stead ily decreasing owing to over produce with increases at all intermediate costs between the trappers and the London dock.

Hill again won tho toss, Kelleway and Bardsley wero the open ing batsmen, and Forster and Bbrnes She bowlers. Tho opening was sensa tional.

Hordern followed and soon lost Bards ley, who was snapped up at the wicket by Smith off Barnes. Two wickets for six. Ransford joined Hordern and the pair batted with extreme caution.

MORE WHARF LABOR TROUBLES. SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
hrORE'WHAHF LA1SOR TROUBLES. SYDNEY, Friday. Tliore is more wharf 'trouble In Sydney. The wharfies refused to work the Adelaide Company's steam er , because, they -allege, permanent hands have been performing duties which should go to casual hands. At all the other interstate wharves there are loud complaints of the inability to hand half the cargo offering, especial ly with Queensland,on account of the dec'sion o[ the union men to work eight hours a day and no overtime. The result Is that every ship for the northern State leaves with perhaps four or five hundred tons aboard, and leaves another 500 on the wharf. This state of affairs is having the effect of compelling Queensland traders to place their orders in Melbourne where no wharf trouble exists, with the result, that Sydney is suffering to that extent.

The Late Leslie Bernasconi. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
The Late Leslie Bernasconi. (By W. Bernasconi.) Whilst thanking the numerous &nbsp; friends of Millthorpe and district who &nbsp; so sincerely condoled with myself and family in the recent sad death of our late son and brother, Leslie, I am very sorry to think, although he was popu- lar and highly esteemed by all classes of the community, that there is at least one person in our midst who is so degraded as to make unwarrant- able statements re his connection with the accident that caused the death of Mr. Thorncroft. Although any person who is possessed of a grain of common sense could learn from the verdict given at the magis- terial inquiry that no blame was at- tached to any one, and that it was purely accidental. If this malignant and scurrulous busybody does not retract his state- ments, of which I have ample proof, legal proceedings will be initiated forthwith.

THE DANGEROUS HATPIN. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 13 January 1912
THE DANGEROUS HATPIN. Steps are being taken by the Syd ney Municipal Council to prohibit the protruding hatpin. A by-law prohibit ing the use of these protruding hat pins is the means adopted by the City Council. The action taken by the committee is the outcome of a letter addressed to the council by Mr. L. A. Pogonowski, who wrote on the subject with such feeling that one could not help imagining he had had personal experience of the dangers of the im plement. "The large hatpins worn by ladies" he said, "are a serious menace to every foot passenger, and also tram riders, whose eyes are in jeopardy each time they, come within range of these stilettos. Cannot a by-law be passed that guards on the points of hatpins be worn by those using them, a fine being imposed on defaulters?" The matter was referred to the city solicitor (Mr. Dawson), who has ad vised that the council has power to make a bylaw dealing with hatpins worn in the streets, which may be dangerous to the public; but a re...
