COLONIAL DEFENCE. LONDON, March 7. j Yesterday 111 the Mouse or JLiords, during the debate on the Admiralty's naval policy, Lord Brassey stated the Canadian and Australian proposals for the creation of naval forces -for local defence promised far-reaching results. Great Britain's policy, he said, was to encourage the colonial Governments to organise in this direction, as it -was vain, to expect colonial contributions to the imperial exchequer.

THE LOCAL COUNCIL AND THE WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
THE LOCAL COUNCIL AND THE WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-Probably the first duty of municipal councils-Carnarvon or elsewhere-is to see that the ratepayers are provided with a proper and adequate supply of potable water. The water is here in Carnarvon in plenty, but its method of distribution reflects no credit whatever npon the council. During my few months' stay in the town It has repeatedly be n the case that when the water is most required, i.e., during the hot weather, there is none on tap. There are two simple methods by which such a state of things may be overcomei Either to in crease the present storage capacity at the Yankee Town tanks, and place in conjunc tion with this an oil engine, so that in the event of failure of the present antiquated method of pumping, at least a limited supply may be assured; or else for the council to call upon every householder to provide himself with sufficient storage accommodation to outlast any possible water famine that may occur. One o...
TERRIBLE DISASTER AT THE SOCIETY ISLANDS. HURRICANE AND SEISMIC DISTURBANCE. LONDON, March 5. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
TERRIBLE DISASTER AT THE SOCIETY ISLANDS. HURRICANE AND SEISMIC DISTURBANCE. LONDON, March 5. The steamer Mariposa, which has I arrived at San Francisco, reports an appalling catastrophe in the Pacific. The report states that a terrific hur ricane, extending over fonr hours, swept the Society Islands on February 7, and that Tahiti (the principal island of the group) and the island of Tnamotu were completely devastated. It is reported that 1,000 persons have been drowned. The damage to pro perty is estimated at 5,000,000 dollars (about £1,000,000). The British and other foreign consulates at Papeete (the principal seaport of Tahiti) were wrecked. Terrible distress prevails on the storm-swept islands, where five hundred British subjects are said to be in need of relief. A volcanic disturbance appears to have been associated with the storm, since several islands have disappeared. [The Society Islands belong to France, and are eituated in the tnid Pacific, more than 2,000 miles north-ea...

THE FAR EAST. LONDON, March 2. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
THE FAR EAST. LONDON, March 2. The Bishop of Durban (?) declares J that the recent massacres at Nan Chang, in China, were the resalt of Roman Catholic missionaries meddling in local politics. His Lordship has appealed to the Vatican to prevent a recurrence of the interference. Mrs. Kingham, who with her hus band and family was among the vic tims of the recent Nan Chang mas sacres, was the daughter of the late Dean Pownall, who was stationed in Perth in 1858, and was West Aus tralia's first Dean. Germany is heavily fortifying her protectorate of Kiao Chau, in the Chinese province of Shantung. Tao Tai Yan, a notoriously corrupt official of Shanghai, whom the foreign consuls and diplomats consider to have been primarily responsible for the Shanghai riots, has been appointed Governor of Peking. March 7. The Dowager Empress of China has threatened the military authorities with severe punishment unless the foreign missionaries within the realm are protected.
GENERAL CABLES. SOUTH AFRICA. LONDON, March 6. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
GENERAL CABLES. SOUTH AFRICA. LONDON, March 6. In connection with the Ethiopian movement in South Africa, 150 natives, including 20 from Natal, recently went to America to be edu cated at negro colleges. The Premier of Natal attributes the prevailing un rest among the blacks in Sonth Africa to the activity of Ethiopian church teaching. The native leader of the anti-poll tax. movement in Natal has been sentenced to be flogged and to be imprisoned for six months. A gang of coolies armed with sticks tried yesterday to enter' a farmhouse at Modderfontein, in the Transvaal. The farmer was prepared for the raiders and shot two of them, where ^p^ipon the rest decamped. Five squadrons of Natal mounted infantry under Colonel Iieuchar sur rounded a kraal and captured the Zulu chief Zoubizete. The troops shelled the kraal after the troops had evacuated it. Forty, headmen tendered their submission. They asked why their kraals were shelled, and were informed that the gnns were the voice of the s...
A SAGACIOUS SPANIEL. LONDON, March 1. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
A SAGACIOUS SPANIEL. LONDON, March 1. j At East Ham, a suburb of London, the certain death of six persons was averted last night under remarkable circumstances. The fusing of an electric 6treet cable caused an escape of gas in the house in which they were sleeping. A spaniel that was on the premises, however, raised an alarm and awakened the sleepers. Thus timely apprised of their danger, they made their escape from the house, which otherwise must have proved a death trap.

LICENSING COURT. MONDAY, MARCH 5. Before Mr. C. D. V. FOBS, R.M., Dr. Hickinbotham, and Messrs. L. Ton Bibra and J. H. Mansfield, J's.P. APPLICATION FOB A GALLON LICENSE. William Newman applied for a gallon license, Mr. C. S. Eiring appearing for the applicant. Sergt. Smyth opposed the application on behalf of the police. William Newman said he was a mer chant and agent, residing at Tankee Town, and was applying for a gallon license for the premises he now occupied. He had never held a license before. Cross-examined: The license is badly wanted. The majority of the people at Tankee Town are customers of mine, and if I had a gallon license they would pur chase their liquor from me. People travel ling by the Minilya and Gascoyne routes have approached me and asked why I could not supply them with liquor the same as other storekeepers. If I had a license it would save them the trouble of coming into town. There are dozens and dozens who do not come into tows, but stay at Yankee Town. R...
BUSH FIRES IN THE YORK DISTRICT. PERTH, March 6. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
BUSH FIEES IN THE YORK DISTRICT. PERTH, March 6. j The residents of the York district daring the past few days have ex perienced a repetition of the disastrona bosh fires, bat the damage sustained was not so extensive as that caused by last year's fires. ks the resnlfc of burning off, one fire started at Gwambygine. six miles from York. It destroyed miles of fencing and acres of grass. The flames in places were twenty feet high and the heat was unbearable. No live stock were killed, bat the grass des troyed represents feed to the value of thousands of pounds. March 7. The fires in the York district were snbdued last night, and there is little danger of any great damage being done. Very few livestock were des troyed, but many sheep have had to be sold owing to the destruction of grass. In portions of the country fires are still burning, but little danger is apprehended.
