Salmagundi [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 31 January 1905
\ Salmagundi — ^ By 1 CuUcuraJ The whirligig of time is responsible for some strange happenings. When it was first suggested that a paper should be started in the in terests of the democrats of this dis trict, there were many who favored it, others who doubted if it could be done, and others- again who openly laughed when they thought how improbable it was. The latter don't smile much now. Good luck to The Leader, and may it be what the name implies. When you come to consider the matter, why should not a paper published in the inter ests of the larger half of the resi dents be a succeess-in every way — always providing that those in whose interests it fights do their share by subscribing ? * * * There is, or ought to be, a splen did opening at some of the music halls or circuses in the metropolis for our trick and fancy-riding cy clists.
