THE DEADLOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 14 May 1872

THE DEADLOOK. TUE best speech made on the present deplorable state of affairs in the Legis- lative Assembly, was, according to Mr. Groom, M.L.A., that delivered by Mr. Thompson, whose arguments ore so explicit and conclusive that we recom- mend all readers who desire to under- stand the merits of the question to give them a thoughtful perusal. Mr. Thomp- son is reported to have said ho had always thought that the course taken by the Opposition was highly uncon- stitutional, and he etill thought BO, and he was fortified in his opinions by a further investigation of some of the authorities which be cited on a former occasion. He had found that it was the opinion of all the modern authorities on Constitutional Government that the stoppage of supplies was a weapon that was now out of use. It was as much out ot place in the enlightened views which were now held on this subject as the old war dress would be in modern warfare. The Opposition had in fact taken up an old rusty weapon, as he ...

íriTii wnicii is iNcoaroEwen ni GLADSTONE OBSERVES. TUESDAY, MAY 14, 1872. TUE deadlock continues unabated. All legislation is stopped during its existence. There can in the present state of affairs bo no Redistribution of the Electorates, and no Railway Loan authorised. At the end of the current month the public departments will Btop payment, and the " shady picture " Mr. PALMER drew a few days ago, will become a stern reality. Tho question therefore is, Can anything effective be done to abate the threatened evil ? A prolonged deadlock in a single House, has, we believe, never before occurred in any country. Most people are historically familiar with the quarrels between monarchs and representatives of the people, and between the two legislative chambers ia one country. But it has been reserved for the colony of Queensland to supply the spectacle of the majority and the minority in one of two legislative chambers disturbing the whole course of public business, and bringing about a ...

Oes advertising columns contain a notice inviting tenders for the removal of the Immi- gration Depot to the site of the old lockup on the river bank. This is in fulfilment of one of the promises made to the Mayor a week or two ago, and we bare no doubt tint ere long other local works will receive attention. Oon local contemporary's Sunday reflections, as published in yesterday's paper, were certainly I »of a most extraordinary character. A leading article, in which the wiiter attempts to sit on two stools-with the usual result-is followed by sixteen political paragraphs of such a character that we can only conclude our con i temporary is qualifying for Woogaroo. In Rockhampton all this rabid paragraphing is I understood and appreciated, but we "deem it necessary to caution southern contemporaries against the supposition that such unmitigated fustian is acceptable to any section of tho Rock- hampton people.
