TO THE ELECTORS OF NORTH AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 16 September 1927
TO THE ELECTORS OF NORTH AUSTRALIA Ladies and Gentlemen. For as long as the oldest inhab- itant remembers it has been the practice for Politicians, Government Officials Bagmen, Globe-Trotters &c. to warn you of the necessity of peopl- ing the North with a contented white population, and to exploit its enormous potentialités. Yet few schemes for this have been envolved, and the few that have been put into operation have proved utter failures. Other candidates for this elect- ion inform you that they will de- velop the Pastoral; Mining; and other industries. They do not take you into their confidence and toll you how. Hereunder is an abreviated out- line of my policy, and, if after care fu consideration of the other can- didates' policies, you see-fit to elect me as your representative on the Advisory Council on October 22nd, you have my assurance that I will do my utmost to have it put into i*f"f pet ADMINISTRATION 1.-Elective Legislative Assembly to govern North Australia, t...

FOR BUSH HOSPITALS [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 20 September 1927
FOR BUSH HOSPITALS That Commander Bennett, D.S.O. of H. M. A. S. Geranium, wo al ri draw a large crowd when he announced a picture entertainment in aid of the Bush Hospitals, goes without saying, for the Commander is one of our most popular visitors. He and the members of the crew of his gallant little ship are held m the highest esteem locally, and Darwin people, perhaps more than anv other port in Australia, sincerely regret what looks like the permanent departure- of the ship from these waters. The attendance at the pictures was a record one, and the net re- sult for the Bush Hospitals will be handsome. The pictures were all taken by the Commander himself, some from an aeroplane over unex- plored regions of the north, others of naval incidents at sea, and inter- esting industrial scenes at Darwin. At the interval, Dr H. L. Jones, on behalf of the Bush Hosptals, thanked the Commander for his splendid entertainment and a hearty vote of thanks was carried by ac- clamation .

ADVISORY COUNCIL (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 20 September 1927
ADVISORY COUNCIL (To the Editor) Dear Sir.-I have read with much interest the comments by Mr W. J. Byrne on the proposed elective Council and so far I am of his opin- ion. Just the same, we have it on very good authority that good some- times comes out of evil. I believe myself it is the duty of all the elect- ors to vote for those who they know are best able to advise the Admin- istration (sinking ali personalties). There are candidates standing who have much to recommend them many years of experience, who have reared families here and are here to stay. If these people are returned, we will know quickly if the. whole affair is a frame up or not. GEORGE STEVENS Pine Creek, Sept 15th, 1927.
