THE STOCK INSPECTOR. TO THE EDITOR. Smt,--I noticed in your issue of the 24th instant, an accoont of certain police court cases against several persons for failing to destroy rabbits on their holdings. I am surprised to see that the Inspector applied for and was awarded costs as a witness in those cases. I fail to see why he is entitled to expenses as a witness, when he is in receipt of a yearly salary and his duties are, I believe, to travel the district, inspect all holdings, and appear against persons in the po'ice court who fail to comply with the Act. Will some person (a director of the Board, for instance) enlighten me as to whether the following section of the Ant applies to the above P Se...
FELL OFF THE TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 28 June 1904
FELL OFF THE TRAIN. A stRious accident happened early Saturday morning to guard Blaekett, who with Assis tant Guard Ford, was in charge of the early mixed train from Goulburu to Tarago, when the train was between Inveraloohy and Lak e Bathurst. E1'rom particulars obtainable at the railway offees it would seem that when between the stations last named Guard Blackett had occasion to look out of the door of the brake van. As he leaned against the door it swung open and precitpiated him to the ground. The train was going at full speed, and the fall was thus made more severe than it would have otherwise been. The assistant guard noticed the door swing open, and as soon as possible signalled the" engine, which was in chargei of Driver Power and fireman Giddy. The train was brought to a standstill near Lake Bathurst st.ation. The driver, Fireman and assistant guard went back along the line for about a mile and found Guard Blaokett suffering great pain from a broken arm, scalp wounds and co...
THE LABOUR MINISTRY DEFEATED. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 28 June 1904
THE LABOUR MINISTRY DEFEATED. ON Friday night, by special. message, we were informed that the Federal Labour Government were badly defeated on the Arbitration Bill, a qualifying amendment respecting preference to unionists being carried by 27 votes to 22. The amendment was to the effect that no preference to unionists should be directed to be given unless the applies ion for it be approved by a majority of those affected by an award. Immediately after the division, the Prime Minister moved to report progress, stating that the Government regarded the amend ment as very serious, cuatting right to the heart of the bill. It would be necessary, added Mr. Watson, for the Government to consider how far the amendment affected the general purposes of the measure, and how far it would ask menbers to reconsider the matter, Mr. Reid said the Government had taken the proper course. The House then adjourned until to-day. Discussing the subject of preference to unionists, Mr. Reid said that " the ...

TARIFF REVIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 28 June 1904
TARIFF REVIVAL. AN agitation has been started in Melbuurne for alterations in the tariff, with a view' of increasing its protectionist incidence. It is pointed out that the duties are notsufnloient ly high for Victoria, and that consequently a number of industries are languishing. Attention is specially directed to the engi. nearing and machinery trade, to which re ference was made at a recent meeting at the Trades Hall. At a meeting of the Chamber of Manufactures on Monday night it was stated that a duty of 35 to 40 per cent. was required on all foreign machinery, ironwork and materials used in the shipping industry. The president of the Chamber commented on what he called two startling facts - one the increase in the importation of manufac tured articles since the-passing of the tariff. and the other the loss of population during the same period. Since federation Victoria had lost 20,800 male adults. These were some of the best of her working population. The population on December...

TH? captain of the American ship Elwell, which arrived in Sydney on Tuesday, states that when he was becalmed off Palmerston Island several of the inhabitants put off in a whaler and, sought the news of the world from the ship'e company. The residents of the isolated island had not been in commu nication with the outside world for a consi derable period, no vessels having been sighted off their coast for some months. The islanders made pathetic appeals for copies of old newspapers, but although all hands made a search throughout the ship not a single copy of a journal could be found. The offoers and men, however, gave the islanders what information they could respecting the principal events since the beginning of the year. The islanders ex changed curios with the crew of the Elwell for clothing, tobacco, and other articles. Palmerston Island, which was discovered by Cook on his second voyage, is a group of small islets, nine or ten in number, lying in a...
