THE VOTE ON THE BILL. TO THE ELECTORS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
THE VOTE ON THE BILL. To THE ELECTORS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. GENTLEMAN,- I In addressing you on the eve of the most momentous day that has yet dawned on Australia since its first settlement, I do not presume to speak to you simply as a private citizen-though even if I did you would not, I am confident, refuse me courteous hearing -but as one who has boen honored by your- selves with a trust at once distinguished and onerous. I speak to you now as the man whom you placed first amoug your chosen delegates to the Federal Convention, and as the man upon whom you, as much indeed as ! tho votes of the members of the Convention themselves, conferred the still more responsi j ble position of the Leadership of that august I body. In this dual function then, and under this dual responsibility, I address you, and appeal to you with till tho sincerity, and all the earnestness of my nature, to vote for tho acceptance of the Draft Bill to Constitute the Commonwealth of Australia, as adopted and prom...
THE COMMONWEALTH BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
THE COMMONWEALTH BILL. What is the val we of the Commonwealth Billas a fundamental organio law ?'? What should be the requirements of the funda- mental organic law of a free community ? It should be comprehensive without being toe restrictive in detail. It must allow piny to the genius of a free people to adapt itself to the constuntly changing conditions of modern society- It must, therefore^ be capable of prompt revision and amendment once the will of the people is ascertained. It must contain machinery for readily ascer- taining the will of the people. It must containing provisions for giving the fullest and promptest effect (consistent with the opportunity for arriving at the period of sober second thought, which no country can afford to despise), to the will of the people. It must place in the hands of the represent- atives of the people the absolute power of Government in the last resort-the power which is symbolised by the control of the public purse. It must place .within th...

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
To thc Editor. Sm,-Each elector will be called upon om Juno 3rd to exercise to the fullest the right conferred upon him by manhood suf- frage and will be afforded an opportunity .oí saying "Yes" or " No" to the most important ques- tion that he has ever been called upon to decide. Before refording their votes on the day in question I should like to impress upon every elector the grave responsibility which attaches to the simple act of scratching out the word " Yes"" or " No.T It is not n personal matter, or one to be decided upou. merely because it will affeot this industry or that. The union proposed under the Billie indissoluble - it is for all time. Such 'being the case it becomes, or ought to become, imperative on each elector, both in his own interests and those o£ his children, to ask himself : Does the Bill contain the principles of right and justice ? ls the proposed distribution of the burthens oE taxation fair and equitable ? Will the majority prevail ? In order to satisfy...

WHAT IS FEDERALISM? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
WHAT IS FEDERALISM? That system of Government which provides for the association of neighboring communities, alike in raco, language,institutions and aspirations, in one league for the promotion and execution of objects which it would bo impossible for anyone of those communities to undertake by itself. Federalism, therefore, implies a National Government for National purposes and the re- tention of State Government for State purposes. A Confederate Government, as distinguished from a Federal Government, is a loose association of States. The opponents of the Constitution Bill urge such a loose association should be in sjituted instead of a Federal Government. They ! overlook the facts of history and of human nature. A Confederate Government, such as would be composed by tho extension of the powers of the Federal Council-a body which has been little less than a laughing stock-necessarily breaks at the crucial point. It cannot oven act upon any one State without the consent of all the...
The Liverpool Herald, PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY MORNING. SATURDAY, MAY 28, 1898. FEDERATION. WHY WE SHOULD FEDERATE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
PrjBILT8IIED EVERY SATURDAY MoitNINvQ. SATURDAY, MAY 28, 1898. FEDERATION. -: o : WHY WE SHOULD FEDERATE. Federation is inevitable. Even opponents of the Bili admit this much. Those who were notoriously Anti-Federal now claim to be Feder- alists-after a fashion ns various as tho individuals themselves. Being inevitable, the question then is : Is this the best time to Federate ? Can anything be gained by delay ? Will any sane human being in the other colonies trust to a future declaration from New South . Wales in favor of Federation at any date if she refuses to accept the Bill now ? No ! That is a solid reason for immediate Federation. New South Wales cannot afford to have belief in her good faith repudiated by the other colonies again. She lias fooled them too of tea. Will any better Bill be obtuined by delay ? Will the irreconcilables, led hy Sir Jolian Salainons and Mr.. Want on one side and Mr. Sleathand Mr. McG-owen on the other, ever agree upon the essentials of a Bill.? It w...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
Only one man in two hundred is over six feet in height. The English Quakers number about fifteen thousand. A. horse will live 25 days without food, merely drinking water. Honey may be poisonous if the bees have extraoted it from poisonous plants. The population of Surrey is inoreasing more rapidly than that of any other county in England. The mines of the world produoe every year 540,000,000 tons of ore and coal. A nutmeg-tree of the largest size will pro- duce no more than five pounds of nutmegs. A doctor states that tight, unventilated hats aro one of the ohief causes ot baldness. The only deposit, of pure pumice-stone found in America is in Utah, the Mormon State. Only 20 pe* cent, of the murders com- mitted yearly in Amerioa and Europe are ever found out. i Vegetarians assert that one aore of land will comfortably support four persons on a vegetable diet.

EMPEROR WILLIAM. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
EMPEROR WILLIAM, This is a true story concerning the German Emperor. His Majesty was out shooting in Hungary, when he wounded a grand stag. The animal, badly hurt though it was, managed to swim out to a lake, and to put itself into such a position that a second shot from the land was not to be managed. There was a tree in the vioinity, and from this the Emperor saw that a shot would he possible. Ho thereupon ordered his keeper to climb up and aim at the stag. ... The man was willing enough to do this, hut the tree had a bare trunk, and it was impossible for bim to swarm up it. The Emperor was, however, equal to the oooaBion again, and, bending his baok, he told the keeper to use it as a step. This was done, and the stag was secured.
NANSEN IN A TRAIN FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
NANSEN IN A TRAIN FIRE. Sailors are fond of pointing out that perjla by land are far moro numerous than per ile by eea, and when a man has gone through the many dangers of a sojourn at or near the North Pole in safety, it seems hard that he should have a narrow escape from com- bustion in England. Yet this is Dr. Nansen's experience. Tho intrepid explorer was a passenger in the Great Northern . express from King's Cross, and just before reaching Peterborough, when travelling at a speed of 40 miles an hour, he and his companions dis- covered that the carriage was on fire. The communication cord was pulled, and the train speedily brought to a standstill, when it was found that an axle had become heated, and set fire to the flooring, which waa considerably damaged. The flames were soon extinguished by water from the engine boiler, and the doctor, with his friends, transferred to another carriage.
PERSONALITIES. A WISE REPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
A WISE REPLY. The Marquis of Lorne, when. Governor General of Canada, was present at some sports held on tho ice of the St. Lawrence. Though wrapped in furs, he felt the oold acutely, and was astonished to see an anoient Indian meandering around bare- footed, enveloped only in a blanket. He asked the savage how he managed to bear suoh a temperature when he had so little on. 4 "Why you no cover face ?' inquired the Indian. The Marquis replied that no one ever did so, and that he was accustomed to have his face naked from birth. 4 Good I* rejoined the Prairie King. ' Me all face !' and he walked away.
THE PRINCE OF WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
THE PRINCE O P WALES. A contemporary tells a story of the Prinoe of Wales, which admirably illustrates the Prince's goodness of heart. A short time ago he WHS dining with the officers of a Danish regiment, of whioh ho s colonel. After dinner it was proposed to play bac- carat, a game of whioh the Prince is well known to be fond. During the game a youthful officer lost. heavily, and finally walked out of the room into an adjacent gallery. The Prinoe, who had observed the young man's losses, and his obvions distress, followed him, and find- ing him in the gallery, delicately asked him why he was so distressed. The officer answered that he had lost) more money than he oould possibly pay, and that he should be obliged to resign his commission, and leave the army. . You shall do nothing of the kind,' the Prince decidedly answered. ' The game was proposed out of compliment to me, and I cannot allow you tobe sacrificed ir. this way.' He forthwith wrote a cheque for £500, the amount of tho ...
THE QUEEN AS AN ETCHER. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
THE QUEEN AS AN ETCHER. I The proprietors of Madame Tassaud'E have just purohased foar interesting uoppei plates, three of them etched by Her Majesty the Queen, and ono by the lato Prince Con- sort. They are now on view in the large hall. Most people are aware that Her Majesty the Queen is an artist of no mean repute. At a very early ago she learned to uso the brush and palette, and the pencil, and later on she mastered tho art of otohing. She does not appear, however, to have taken to this latter soionoe with any groat amount of avidity until after her marriage- Then, as it happened, she found in tne Prince Con- sort a follow craftsman, and forthwith a room in Buckingham Palaoo was fitted up as a sort of oombiuation studio and workshop. Here, under tne guidance and advice of the late Sir Edwin Landseer, assisted by the late Mr. Henry Graues, the well-known fine art publisher, the young couple worked for two or three hours every other morning. Nor would tho Queen allow any portion o...
A FRENCH WATERLOO VETERAN. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
A FRENOH WATERLOO VETERAN. Some particulars concerning Viotor Bail lod, the French Waterloo veteran whose death waa lately recorded, are furnished by M. Millet, the mayor of the little town of Oariaey, where he lived. The faot that Baillod was 104 years old seems to be well authenticated. He had the St. Helena medal and alBO the Cross of the Lotion of Honour. It was three years before Waterloo that he waa drafted into tho Freooh army under tho oonsoription laws, and he first served under Marshal Daveut at Colmar. This is a de- scription of Waterloo whioh he gave shortly before his death ; ' Ah 1 Waterloo. There were plenty of men there, and tho oannon roar waa deafening. The corn grew high, when tho oavalry had passed over it road- ways were left in ita wake. The more Napoleon advanood the more the enemy re- treated. Did I see Napoleon P YOB, indeed, I did.

BLENHEIM PALACE AND ITS MISTRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
BLENHEIM PALACE AND ITS MISTRESS. The young Duohess of Marlborough has evinoed great judgment and ability in restoring Blenheim Palace to its former magnifioonoe. But from the first she loved the old palace, and she has spent great oare and thought upon the improvement. Since her residence at Blenheim all fees takon at the gates from tourists who visit the palace have been devoted to oharity, and out of her own pocket and her own heart the duohess devises many schemes for amusing and benefiting her husband's tenants. One of her favourite recreations is visiting among the old people, and another the planning of tea parties and various outings for the child- ren, in which she always takes part. Inside the park gates her presence is quite as emphatically felt as in the village, for since her" coming the park lake has been dug out, j oleared of weeds, and Btooked with water j fowl, and the garden is in perfect order. Th«) duohess is artiBtio, and everywhere in the palace there is oviden...
YOKES IN CLOTH GOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
YOKES IN CLOTH GOWNS. Yokes in oluth gowns are are generally of some contrasting colour and material. Small square yokes of very fine tucked shaded taffeta are exceedingly smart with some of the dark cloths. One of my renovated gowns of dark blue broadcloth has a square yoke baok and front of bright flame colour with a stock oollar and choice rosettes of fhe taffeta at the back of the neck. Another and deeper blue gown has the yoke of shaded blue taffeta, and it lights up the more sombre cloth wonderfully. The main idea is to have the yoke most carefully fitted, and to give as muoh breadth to the shoulders as pos- sible. The yoke is par excellence the most important feature in every bodice just now. But TO WEAH WITH CLOTH GOWNS that are much or little trimmed with braid, the smartest have a blouse made of the same braid, and joined with fanoy stitches of beavy black twist or embroidery silk. On the lines of the braid should be sewn quan- tities of little black buttons, whioh take aw...
LADIES' COLUMN. A BEAUTIFUL FOOT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 28 May 1898
-?- &lt; A BEAUTIFUL FOOT. Tho slender foot is the moBt beautiftd, and the smart girl is not slow to reoognise this faot. . Her shoes are always a little longer than her foot, but the slender appearance is Î,reserved, and a long narrow foot always ooks better than a short wide one. A girl who wears a long shoe can dance all night without rest, not so the maiden with the short one, her feet soon begin to feel oramped and stiff, and she is either obliged to sic out or retire. A girl who wears a proper shoe will have a foot as pretty and delicate as a baby's. The instep should be high, the heel delioately ^ formed, and the skin as white as alabaster, with the blue veins showing through. The general form of the foot will be slender, the toes tapering and adorned with pink-tinted nails. A girl who possesses suoh feet as these may well take pride and pleasure in contemplating them.
