THE UNITED STATES AND RUSSIA. Dili-ill!,' many years, ami particularly Since Alaska was ceded to the United States for a monetary consideration in 1S07-. the world has been accustomed to hear of the 'traditional friendship' ex isting between Washington and St. Pe tersburg. Yet no surprise should be caused by the news conveyed in our cable messages a few days ago, that a little tariff war had been started oh their own account between the two na tions. Both are wedded to that re markable principle of economics which induces the majority of civilized coun tries to declare that it is a grand thiii^f to sell everything possible to outsider^?/ but very dangerous to one's welfare to buy' anything from them in exchange. Russia; iu her anxiety to get rid of thu beetroot sugar which some of her peot pie have learned to .produce, wishes to sell it. to well-to-do Americans for less money tbau is charged lor it to her owu impoverished population; and on dis covering tliat -tlie United States ref...

To tlie Editor. Sir— ''Watchman' is illogical in the ex treme. At the time Mr. Keid took otf. tne £8110,000 in customs duties, a royal com-; mission was dealing with the civil service, and it was their decision and theirs alone that caused a retrenchment of . £300,000. When -Mr. -Reid- took office he found the civil 'service demoralized, and he carried out almost. in. its entirety the commis sioners', report. It was the voice of the people that demanded the royal commis sion — not Mr.'iteid, so it is unjust to vility and misrepresent a. public man for carry ing out vth.e),\V;ighe»«.of(.the.i people.

ADVANCE FROM 1840. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901

ADVANCE FROM 1840. .In. April, 1840, the first addition to the original printing machinery of. the office imported by the Afrieaine in'183G was a double-crown press of an improv ed class, not unlike the Albion. This formed a portion of the plant of a paper called the 'Adelaide Chronicle,' which was purchased, by Messrs. Robert Thomas &. Co. from the, proprietor^ Mr. W. C. Cox. The 'Chronicle' was car ried on by 'The Register' proprietors fora year or two, but had to succumb to the bad times under Governor Grey in 1842. Before the end of 1S40 a double-demy Columbian press was im ported, and by its aid 'The Register' blossomed into a sheet double its 'for- mer size. The press is still to be seen at 'The Register' Office, and its east -iron eagle,- representing. Columbia throwing defiance at Albion, seems like a reminiscence of the days : before a firm like Hoe & Go. found it needful to have works both in England and in America.

STORY OF THE LINOTYPE MACHINE [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 11 March 1901

STORY OF THE LINOTYPE MACHINE. On our illustration of the linotype machine -it will be noticed that the magazine at the top is marked with five words — 'Mergenthaler Linotvpe Company, New York.' These fivs words sum up in very brief form the interesting, and instructive history of the linotype machine. Twenty': years ago an American watchmaker named Mergenthaler undertook to make a typesetting appliance. The task had baffled hundreds before him. but Mer genthaler had two points in his favour —first, he was not a printer but a skill ed mechanic, so that he could, hope to make a much neater machine than a printer would be likely to construct; and in the second place he had a funda mental idea, which he perceived was of prime importance, that. a typesetting i. machine ought to make lines and -not | single letters, these lines being cast 4 from metal as the work proceeds. B\ I the year 18S4 Mergenthaler had his ma chine in a fairly workable condition, and next year betook out a patent f...
