The New Woman. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 8 October 1898
Ths 2Tew "Wosxas,. The New Woman orator waxed eloquent. •' And what," she demanded, as she came to the climax, " is to be the result of our emancipation ?" She looked round with the air of one who bad asked a poser, and this was too much for the little man wait ing for his wife in a far corner of the hall. " I know," he shouted. " Ah," returned the New Woman on the platform, scornfully, "the little man with a bald liead thinks he has solved the problem. We will, give our attention while be tells us what is to be the result." ; " Cold dinners and ragged child ren," roared the little man, without a moment's hesitation. __ Mamma: " Ethel, what do you mean by shouting in that disgraceful fishion ? See how quiet Willie is." "Of course he's quiet. That's our game. He's papa coming home late and I'm you." :

The Port Pirie Recorder SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1898. That Hotel Licence. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 8 October 1898
^Ite ^ort Prie fUmier SatuudaYj October 8, 1898. Skat Hotel Licsace. Zealous members of the teetotaj party take exception to the action of the Chairman of the Midland Licensing Bench for having, at the last sitting of the Court, exercised both a deliberative and a casting vote. The gentleman who has taken up the cudgels on their behalf states that there is no warrant in the Act for such a course, and that the Chair man in adopting it departed from precedent. As to the former con tention Mr. Duncan is correct, bat to pat matters on a fair footing it should also be stated that the Act makes no reference whatsoever to the question. It simply states that "the Bench shall come to a decision," but as to the number of gentlemeu requisite to constitute the Court, or how the result shall be . determined, it is silent. In the absence of such a provision ifc seems to us that the Chairman had a perfect light, under! the circumstances, to the two votes which he exercised. To argue to the contrar...
