NINETY YEARS AGO. CATO STREET CONSPIRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

NINETY YEARS AGO. CATO STREET CONSPIRACY. One has to go a long way back to fln 1 a record of a conflict between the police and criminals in any way similar to that which took place in. Sidney strc«t on Tuesday (says the "Daily Telegraph" of January 6). Perhaps the nearest parallel is that furnished by the at tempt made to arrest the notorious Cato street conspirators on February 23, 1S20. The object which this gang of . miscreants had in view" .was the assassination of the members of the Cabinet. Their plan was to murder the Ministers separately at their respective residences; but, becoming aware that the Cabinet was to dine at the house of Earl Harrowby, President of the Coun cil, on the evening of February 23, the conspirators decided, in the words of Thistlewood or Thistlewait, the head of the gang, "to murder them altogether" on that occasion. The conspiracy arose out of the popu lar discontent which prevailed for many years after the close of the Na poleonic wars, and when undo...

SOIvDIEi: SABBATARIAN. PRISON IN PREFERENCE TO WORK. The Supreme Military Court has (says the Berlin correspondent ot the "Dally New a") sentenced a Seventh Day Ad vontist named Naumann to five yefers' imprisonment for refusing to work on Saturdays. Naumann refuses to do any kind or work or to obey military orders from midnight on Friday to mid night on Saturday. The President of the Court asked him whether he would obey orders to entrain on a Saturday in the event of war. Naumann replied "Yes. because in that case danger would bo imminent." The President told him that if he persisted in refusing to work on Saturdays he could not see how he could escape spending his whole life in prison. Naumann said that that made-no difference.

The Date Stamp. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 25 March 1911

The Date Stamp. The tone of a number of letters re ceived from correspondents during the - lust few days in the " Herald " appears to indicate that a doubt is fast gaining ground as to the reason for the Post master-Goneral's decision to do away with the date stamp on letters. They suggest that one of the objects aimed at, equally important to the authorities of the post office as tho saving in time, is that of hiding incompetence. One correspondent points out that in the majority of other countries not only tho date but the hour at which the letter was posted in stamped on it. As a general rule, it is impossible to decipher even the name of the postal town, let - alone tho date on the smudge of ink' representing the post offioe cancellation mark in Australia. One grave objection to the disuse is mentioned by another correspondent. He points out that the date marked on a stamp is frequently of tho utmost importance in legal transac tions, and its discontinuance will cause serious in...
