Cablegrams. RUSSIA'S TROUBLES. LONDON, March 1. The four youths concerned in the robbery of £7,500 from the State Bank of Helsingfors, in Finland, and in the murder of the night watchman who was on the premises at the time, j have been arrested. After the murder j and robbery the culprits went to an adjoining wood, where they were discovered by the police. Their arrest was not effected till after a long con flict in which one policeman was killed. The pockets of the robbers were fnll and each carried a bag full of coins and arms. Russian revolutionaries are, it is stated, carrying on an extensive traffic in contraband. They are daily smug gling large qnantities of arms into I Finland and Russia via Sweden and Germany. I The Czar, in view of the unwilling- , ness of the military to do police duty, has issued an ordinance forbidding the troops to fire at the people or even to nse blank cartridges in suppressing disturbances. Two more of the gang concerned in the robbery of the State B...

BUBONIC PLAGUE. IN PERTH, FREMANTLE, AND GERALDTON. GERALDTON, March 4. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
BUBONIC PLAGUE, W PERTH, FREMANTLE, AND GERALDTON. GEBALDTON, March 4. No farther signs. of plague have been discovered and public feeling is easier. Bradley has taken a tarn for the worse, and liis condition is re garded as 6erions. The ashes of the three latest victims were interred in the ^cemetery to-day. March 5. Walter Bradley died from bubonic plague yesterday. His body has been cremated. The deceased's constitu tion was against his recovery. A fresh case has been reported in Geraldton, Mrs. Connelly, aged 43, the wife of a lumper who was enrolled as a special constable, being the patient. March 7. Mrs. Connelly is improving, and her attack of plagae is a mild one. She was inoculated five days previous to becoming ill, and to this precaution may evidently be ascribed the mildness of the attack. There are no indications of any farther outbreak. PEBTH, March 6. No further cases of plague have been reported in Perth, but another infected rat has been caught. March 7. Fourteen in...
GENERAL ITEMS. PERTH, March 3. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
GENERAL ITEMS. PEBTH, March 3. j At the quarter sessions held at Esperance on Wednesday an abor iginal named Wooley was charged with arson and was sentenced to seven years' imprisonment.

CORRESPONDENCE. FREIGHT CHARGES ON THE TRAMLIKE. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
CORRESPONDENCE. FREIGHT CHARGES ON THE TRAM LIKE. To THE EDITOR. SIB,-On my return to Carnarvon I notice that a gentleman named J. J. Wilkinson has been writing a letter ia your paper of the 17th February with reference to the charges on hia lnggage from the steamer to the town (a distance of over three miles). This gentleman says that the charges were exorbitant, and evidently from the tone of his letter considers that the lessees of the jetty have overcharged him. He poses as a man who has travelled all over Australia; one would therefore think that he had a little cotnmonsensa and knew something of business ways. He is an American, I believe, and I under stand that Americans are, as a rule, sup posed to be particularly smart in business matters. Mr. Wilkinson, however, I pre sume is the exception that proves the rule. Had I been in his position I have an idea that before exposing my ignorance in print I would have consulted the jetfy contract. Had he done so he would have found o...
THE WOOL SITUATION. (Dalgety's Review.) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 March 1906
THE WOOL SITUATION. (Dalgety's Review.') London has spoken, and the verdict is such that anyone interested in wool cannot possibly fail to interpret its language and digest its lessons if he will. As I daily watched the scene, it waB patent that wool was urgently wanted, for everyone was determined to buy. Notwithstanding one or two leading houses, who seemed a bit dilatory, the vast majority were very active and bought wool with a will. Very few withdrawals took place, brokers wisely meeting the market and selling while they had the chance. The very fact of only 1,500 bales being held over shows conclusively that buyers were in a good mood, and in deed the series throughout were marked with great keenness of com petition, which obtained right up to the finish. Evidently most buyers were simply bent on obtaining suffi cient wool to meet their urgent needs, | all I talked to being of opinion that it I would be wise to defer buying to stock till next January and March. The attention o...
CORRESPONDENCE. FREIGHT CHARGES ON THE TRAMLINE. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 March 1906
CORRESPONDENCE. ? FREIGHT CHARGES ON" THE TEAM LINE. To THE EDITOR. SIB,-As Mr. Wilkinson is not now in Car narvon he has small chance of replying to Mr. Macnish's letter in to-day's issue of THE NOBTHEBN TIMES. Were Mr. Wilkinson here, he is, I am sure, capable of taking care of himself in matters of argument. Mr. Wilkinson said that on alighting from a Teasel there should he a notice board giv ing intending passengers all requisite in formation as to rates of fares and freights on the trams. He did not intend to con vey any idea that Dalgety & Co. were charging anything more than they were legally entitled to do, but he did certainly say that. the charges were exorbitant on the carriage of luggage, and I venture to think the public, who are always the best judges, will agree with him. 1 personally pointed out at the general meeting held over the jetty contract lately it is an ex traordinary thing that general merchan dise can be carried over the jetty at about one-twentiet...
VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, March 11. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 March 1906
VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, March 11. j Albert Carroll, 15 years of age, lost his life in the Hawthorn main drain at Auburn. Carroll and two other boys were playing in a drain 15 ft. by 6 ft. when a heavy downpour of rain caused a wall of water to rash down the drain. The other two boys made their escape, bat Carroll was caaght in the advancing water, swept from his feet, and carried into the tunnel a mile farther on. Some girls were horrified when they heard cries from the drain and saw the boy's body rash past into the tannel, which empties into the Yarra. This was the last seen of the anfortnnate lad.

THE DINGO PEST. To THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 March 1906
THE DINGO PEST. To THE EDITOR. SIB,-I constantly hear complaints from station owners of the losses caused by dingoes. I beg space to give my experience and means of keeping the dingo in check, and I feel sure that anyone following on the same lines will find it equally success ful. Now, the first line of defence should be poison on the outskirts of the ran. Periodically, Bay every three months, a pack-load of baits should be sent oat and poison laid along all the creeks and gorges, and aronnd water-holes; by this means, if the person in charge of baito does his work thoroughly, most of the dingoes in the vicinity will be destroyed. But there are certain dogs for some unknown reason who refase to take baits no matter how tempting or well laid; therefore, the traps are the only means of getting these cun ning members, for no matter how cunning a dingo is in other respects he can be caught by one versed in the use of traps. There is no one better than an aboriginal for the trapping if ...
PERILS OF THE BUSH. TWO MEN NARROWLY ESCAPE DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 March 1906
PERILS OF THE BUSH. TWO MEN NASEOWLY ESCAPE DEATH. The interaption caused to telegraphic business at the end of last week was, it seems, due to the fact that the line had been cat near Hamelin Pool by tiro foot passengers who nearly perished from thirst. From what we have been able to gather it appeare that the lineman (Con. Masters) left Hamelin Fool on Friday morning to search for the fault on. the south line. About an hour later he re turned to the station and reported he had met a man named Lynch/who had nearly perished from thirst, having been with out water (with the exception of abont half-a-pint-and that very muddy) which Lynch and his mate (Mullins) obtained at'the 26-mile tank. When Lynch met Masters he could not Bpeak, but simply held his can up. Not content with the water Masters ^poured out for him. Lynch seized the water bag and consumed its contents before being able to quench his intense thirst, fie gave Masters to understand he had left bis mate (named Mullins)' at ...

BANGEMALL NOTES. BANGEMALL, February 28. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 March 1906
BANGEMALL NOTES. Bangkmai-l, Febrnary 28. A bit of heavy gold is still being found here. In spite of the general reticence I have seen a 3 oz. 3 dwt. and all dwt. piece that have been got here by two parties within the last fortnight; besides i which I know of come ounces of finer gold ; that has been obtained.There is also a ramonr going around of one party getting . richer gold than has ever been struck be fore, but I cannot vouch for the truth of this as I have not seen the gold, although I believe it possible. In spite of the above it is no place for anyone to come to unless they are prepared to prospect for them selves. 110 points of rain fell here on the 14th, and thunder storms have been common, but a good general downpour is needed to do much good.
