Military Training. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900

'pl&pleHTre^wl m|ûfcary; màtters ¿n^-mjmhVrapre se^p)S4igb|tjtófc: has>bee%L ïihe customTnth'èrror; ' Now opinions \iuM suggestions arggïven vent to, ¿nd receive thé approval of the .pebple, which a few months ago would have been laughed to seora. Some of our politicians go"«o far as'to suggest compulsory military training ; this is going a bit too far, surely, they have not such a thing in England, and although oui system would be very moderate-drill one night a week,-it would nevertheless be very awkward and actually unnecessary. Better Sir George Dibb's idea, tbat all school boys should learn drill and discipline as part of their curricu lum-it would be good training apart from military reasons-and this should be supplemented by liberal treatment to all those who desire to enrol as volunteers in after life. By this means Aus tralia could provide a standing army of considerable magnitude.

Mr. Walmarans, a member of the Government, had been for years challenged to deny that he drew a royalty of 2s. on every case of dynamite sold. It is estimated that the Dynamite Company alone took from the public £600,000 a year. . The matter of the closing of the " drifts " by the Transvaal Govern ment is interesting as showing that they at one time anyhow acknowledged the right of Britain to interfere in their internal government. In order to favour other than British railway companies the Boers charged enormous rates for carriage on that particular railway which tapped the Cape Colony line, so much so that it was found to be cheaper to unload at the border and carry the goods by waggon the fifty miles to Johannesburg. To pre vent this being done, the " drifts " or river crossings were to be closed ; bat after much agitation the British Crown Law Officers informed Kruger that to do so would be a breach of the London Convention; and the British Government said it was not to be done....

COLONEL HOAD, IB Command of the Australian Contingent. AUSTRALIAN CONTINGENTS. To the late Mr. W. B. Dalley is doe all the credit for originating the idea of Bending Australian troops beyond our own shores to take active part in the wars of the Empire. Early in February, 188.5, news reached Sydney of the fall of Khartoum and supposed death of Gordon ; there were not sufficient British troops in the Soudan to re-capture the lost capital. Then, as now, there was talk of an European combination against her power« and things for the moments wei« very serious for Britain. Mr. Dalley was Attorney General of the Stuart Government and at the time acting Premier, Sir Alexander Stuart being in New Zealand. He brought down a minute to the Cabinet, which was approved of, suggesting the send ing of troops ; the offer was accepted by the Home Government, and on 3rd March, 1885, fifteen days after the acceptance, 800 men and 224 horses sailed for the seat of war. Parliament was not in session at t...

To men tion 'Woman's Bights' or any thing relating to them had the same effect on him as holding a red rag before a bull. ' Woman's Bights Women' he called sexless creatures, with nothing feminine about them but their love of talk ing, who put idiotic ideas into the heads of others weak enough to listen to them. The mere thought of them made him uncomfortable and irritable for an hour after. His wholesale condemnation of them was amusing, considering he had but a very limited acquain tance with that type of woman. His chief Meas were got from the caricatures m his favorite maga zines. Women of th't typo did not flourish in Ferny brae. Studying the 'lntf-si Paris fashions,' from journals some months old, was to the women folk of Fernybrae pre ferable to studying- woman's gen eral superiority to the opposite sex.

THE PENINSULA OBSERVATORY. Report for 1899. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900

THE PENINSULA OBSER-   VATORY.   Report for 1899.   The skies during the autumn, win- ter, and spring months of the year were frequently clear, and the work done is quite equal to that in any former year. The astronomical work of the observatory comprises two departments, and considering thatit all devolved on one observer, his time has been fully occupied. In the meridian department, which is, of course, exclusively devoted to the determination of local time, 195 nights have been utilised, and the transits of 1170 standard stars ob- served ; 575 determinations were   made for level error of the transit instrument; 51 for collimation error; and 170 for azimuth. The whole off the reductions in connection with the observations has been performed by the observer himself. In the extra - meridian department, in   which the 8-inch equatorial was   almost always employed, extensive   observations wer...

It won't be well for the owners to catch these destructive sneaks. Mr. Henry Fowell had a splendid sample of Black Manhothen pota toes this season. This particular kind have done well in the low lands of the Hawkesbury this year, and will no doubt be grown more extensively next season. One of the biggest farmers on the lowlands is Mr. A.

State Governors. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 26 January 1900

State Governors. THE Premier of Victoria kf credited with- saying that the Imperial Government should, nominate the various Sate Gov ernors after Federation "so as to maintain a visible link with tba mother country." This idea fe not a good one, and the reason brought forward in support of it is also faulty. Federated Aus tralia will have a " visible imk." in the Governor-General of the Commonwealth, and it will b& , absolutely unnecessary " to hs*» anything further. .In Canada tibs Governor-General appoints Liett tenant-Governors for the varian* States, no visible link is considered necessary.

Federal Electorates. NEXT to the war, the little matter of Federation takes up the interest of the people, and the dear old Herald comes out with a leader on the advisability of divid ing thc colony into electorates, because it would be a liad thing for the populous centres to domi nate the tone of the entire bunch of representatives from our colony. Such a result would natui ally fol low the electing our representa tives by the colony as one electo rate, and the result would be that the country districts would be unrepresented, inasmuch as no candidate would have a ghost o£a show who dared to tell the Sydney people anything about the* evils of centralisation, and the unjus tices under which the country labors at the expense of the city.
