THE RESIDENT MAGISTRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 10 May 1902

THE RESIDENT MAGISTRACY. What steps will be taken with re gard to the vacancy caused by the resignation of Dr Black, R.M., not known. According to our Perth cm-respondent it is whispered that a former Acting R.M. at Katanning will at least temporarily be appoint ted to the position. Whether there is any truth in the rumor we are not prepared to say, nor is it thought probable that such will be the ease. The appointment of Resident Magis trates in this State, and the retention of some of those who have for years held the position, has been a source of continual complaint, the contention being that such positions should be available only to those who have un dergone a course of legal training, and it is to be hoped that when an ! appointment to the vacancy in this j district is made there will be no room left for complaint as to the in ! competency of the person succeeding i Dr. Black. It by no means follows ! that because a person is qualified to | hold an important position in any ;...

RAILWAY VAGARIES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 10 May 1902

RAILWAY YAGARIES. TO THE EDITOR. * Sir,—No wonder the railways of Western A ustralia are estimated by the powers that be to show a deficiency, and in consequence the simplest and easiest, method seemed to be to increase the rate of carriage. In the face of the unprecedented burdens of taxation the people of this long-suffering colony are called upon to pay to the revenue (a burden that w.ll go further towards retarding permanent : settlement on the land than all the praise worthy efforts of our justly ■ popular land agent will go towards obtaining that object) the railways, or rather the solon at the head of affairs, have increased the rates of carriage. If the increase in the rate meant more expe ditions and efficient delivery" of goods en trusted to tlipir care it might *"1)0 excused • hut .-the contrary seems to be the case. A. consignment of goods left Peith, or at least was handed in and taken delivery of at Perth on Tuesday, April 29. Two. small ca only comprised the lot. On S...

MINISTERIAL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 10 May 1902

MINISTERIAL METHODS. The very unusual occupancy of the leading column of the " West Aus tralian" during a day each of last and this vreek by articles referring in con demnatory terms to the action of the Government is food for comment. The journal alluded to has given the Leake Administration consistent sup port, which is remarkable in view of the fact that its managing editor is the leader of the Opposition in Parlia ment. But that support is not of the unreasoning variety which can see no ! fault in the object of its continuance. En pessant it may be remarked that the Leake Government is marked for down. The Press and members of Parliament have weighed it in the calm msasure of dispassionate judg ment, and' found it sadly wanting, and there is no doubt 'at all that the first act of Parliament after re-assem bling will be the njo'ving of a no-con fidence motion by Mr Nanson. Mr i Leake himself anticipated this in his speech on Mouday night, and in his own academic phrasing set out ...

THE SLIDING SCALE. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 10 May 1902

THE SLIDINGr SCALE. At his greeting on Monday night. last, in Perth, when he reviewed the career ( of the Government, the Premier gave j a very emphatic assurance to the country that the measure of protec tion afforded the producers of the State by the local tariff on imports would not be removed. Fo.* months it has been argued that to this duty the high price of provisions on the goldfields was traceable. That if there were no inch impost the digger in the baek country, the miner in the settlements and the citizens of the goldfields centres would live at half the present cost. Which is, of course, nonsense. As far as it applies to the products of the farmer the State duty is no perceptib e charge upon the con sumer, particularly upon the gold fields people, who are regarded by some who Lave been credited with better wisdom as the backbone of the Siate. There is no doubt the gold fields have brought the State into prominence, advertised it, caused money which otherwise would not hav...

DEBATING SOCIETY. AN ADDRESS ON PATRIOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Great Southern Herald — 10 May 1902

DEBATING SOGIETV. AN ADDRESS ON PATRIOTISM. The fortnightly meeting of the Katanning ! Literary and Debating Society was held on Tuesday evening last. Mr R. G. Hughes presided. The speaker for the evening was the Rev A. Me»ters, whose subject was; " Patriotism." After some introductory re marks Mr Metters said that to have strong, clear views on patriotism was one of the best means to secure the thing itself. A'uch that passed for the genuine article was spurious. There was a false coinage of words, as there was of money. A patriot was one who loYed j his country, and guarded its true welfare, i No nation had a monopoly of patriotism. As 1 I the poet said— . j Breathes there a man with soul so dead, j Who never to himself hath said— i This is my own, my native land. They were there that night as Australians. Their country, with alL its limitations, was one to bo proud of; but they might well tremble for its future if there was a lack of true patriotism. A recent English criticism of...

At the latter end of March a well-dressed young man alighted from the train at Narro | gin, and was not long in ingratiating him self wit.li the townspeople.
