NOTES. OFF TO THE CORONATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 11 January 1911
NOTES. OFF TO THE CORONATION. How events change our ways and senti ments! A few years ago, you couldn't pos sibly imagine Sir. "Andy" fisher or Mr. "Jim" SI'Gowen going off to a coronation and incidentally, lunching with a "Dook." .Yet to-day we .'hid both these gentlemen making careful preparations to visit Eng land for the crowning o£ their Sovereign, King George. This indeed, adequately, shows the pi ogress of Democracy, whose crowning glory will be achieved when its two great leaders follow, in a "kerridge nnd pair" the stately processions incident to the coronation. The reported scarcity of ermine may also be keenly felt by Messrs. Fisher and M'Gowen, and although it really is not common for plain colonials to appear in robes' and ermine on state occasions, or any. other occasion for that matter, who can .Bay our two political leaders have not fan cied themselves so "done up" for the oc casion? It is not too great a stretch of imagination, to find them attired in-sump tdous cor...

But tho London criminals did not roach that bloodthirsty frenzy all at once. Their murderous instincts vera strengthen ed and fostered by tho mistaken lenity with which they were treated, and the free hand which was given them to concoct their plans, rhu amiable theory of tho British Constitu tion is to regard all such persons as "well meaning enthusiasts/" who arc entitled tc tho right of asylum, and vrho can only be taken in charge by the law when their ne farious schemes have taken shape in actual jiitragc. Tho lesson seems to bo that law lessness is lawlessness. At first, it contents nrelf with minor breaches, but, as it gains ^.length by immunity (and stiJl more so ■ A'iiVn it receives overt enc...
