A STORY OF RED TAPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 June 1904

A STORY OF RED TAPE. As amusing story of rd tape eccentricity is going the rounds to the expense of the Federal Goveriment. A lock of a ballot-box having been broken, it was sent out for re- I pair, and the man in due course sent in his account, which amounted to 63. After the usual formalities, involving much waste of time, be received from the Electoral Depart ment a cheqne for 63. The cheque was useless, because, if the receipicnt had paid it into the bank, he would be charged 6d ex change, so be resolved to have it framed with a broad border of red tape, and hand it to his heirs as a curiosity of Public Service method.

ENGLAND v. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 June 1904

ENGLAND v. NEW SOUTH WALES. Tira Englishmen opened their tour in Sydney on Saturday when they metand defeated New South Wales by 27 to nil. The attendance numbered about 35,000. The British team outclassed New South Wales in every point of play. They are the finest all-round football team that have been seen in Sydney; the backs immeasurably the best all round. N. other team, British or New Zealand, ever made so brilliant and so successful a first appearance. The back division appears to be composed of a combination of champion players. Bush the five-eight or outer half, is the trickiest and c'everest man in the position who has been seen here. He introdncei mwements and showed quickness of mind as well as foot and hand thatwon admiration from everyone on the ground. The passing of the backs was long and short, and frequently clean over the head of a man who happened to be marked by an opponent. Another fine feature of the back play was the ability of the men to kick with the left a...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 June 1904

OLOSER SETTLEhtEN2. To uau Eprro , Smx,-T have read with some interest Mr. John Southwell's letters on the above subject. His practical experience of farming and land matters entitlei his opinions to some respect, nevertheless, his arguments are based upon wrong assumptions. I do not think that advocates of closer settlement expect to get good land near a town for "little or nothing." What they really do want is to get fair farming land within a reasonable distance r of a market or railway, and for this land they.expect to pay a rental that would be a fair rate, of interest on full capital value ; and above all things fixity of tenure-for without long leases there is no inducement to go farming on nimproved land. From my own experience of the. black alluvial river flats, I should say that if Mr, Soutwell's estimate of owners' values is correct, it is altogether too high, for with our limited rainfall and without irrigation, this is. the very class of land that will not resist even a...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 June 1904

OLOSER SETTLEIIENr. To TIe EDITOR. Sta,-Mr. R. Beatty having jumped into the controversial arena of the above subject, it behoves me to reply and place bafore the publio another view, as both his and Mr. Southwell's letters call for some comment. I may state that I know nothing of the par ticsular estates Mr. Boatty puts forward as examples. Now we are told by Mr. Beatty's letter that at the sale of the Muttama Estate there was a dragging sale; but we are not told that any of the blocks remained unsold. Further, although this estate of 50,000 acres was sold in blocks of from 40 acres upwards he cites only one solitary instance in which a block was purchased by a squatter. We are not told why the Tarrabandra Station came into the market; and, certainly the letter suggests to one's mind that the prices obtained at the sale of the Mattama Estate were so satisfactory that the owners of Tarrabandra were tempted to offer their property for sale in similar blocks in the hope of getting sim...

' You needn't apologise,' said Mr. Johnson dropping his voice to a tone which was in finitely sympathetic.

Gininderra Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 21 June 1904

Gininderra Gleanings. (From Our Correspondent) Qrrrriaa flutter of excitement prevailed at Hall, on Saturday last when Mulligan's Flat journeyed to Hell (or rather the Tennis Players) and indulged in teetotal tea and a test at tennis I The Mulligan people were victorious, having all their own way in the singli and double events. It was not what might be tormed a first class exposition of tossing the balls hither and thither but, with a little more prnotioe, patienoeand persever ance both Mulligan's Flat and Hall will produce some fair players although, perhaps none will participate in the single or d6able championship of the universe. The good folk around the above localaties evidently think that tenns comes under the category of " rational " sports, therefore, they indulge on the Sabbath. I might men. tion that the members of the Hall No. 1 Court joined Mulligan's Flat Club and on Sunday the former put in appearance at the Flat for a " hit up " sort of impromptu, go as you please k...

Rational. Sports. [BY INoInu.] So the Ladies' Debating Souiety,or the mom. here thereof, have decided that RATIoxNA sports may be permitted on the Sabbath 1 and, the question arises, whbt are rational sports, and who is the authority? Some of the up-to-date, and what is popularly known as the new women, might placs football as rational, and we may look for a Sunday afternoon's recreation in witnessing a rational game by rational ladies in rational costume played with eationability-and with a ball of course. The Sunday picnicers will say that picnics are rational, providing of course that the rations are full and plentiful. There. fore the Sabbath pionicors can rest with an easy conscience, and the girls can chase or be chased for that kiss because the rational handkerchief was dropped by a rational maid on a rational shoulder which rationalized and permitted a rational kiss don-cher-know. It would be well for the Ladies' Debating Society to thrash out at their next debate as to what...
