The S.S. Monowai Overdue. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 23 October 1901
The S.S. Monowai Overdue. Vkars arc. entertained for Uic.safety of the Union Co.'s steamer Monowai, whicli is now four days overdue al Hobnrt from.(he Bluff (New Zealand). No tidings of the missing vessel had been received up to the earlv part of yesterday by the company. The opinion in shipping circles is tiiat the steamer's delay is probably the result of an accident that any ocean-going vessel is liable to, namely a bro ken shaft. The Monowai left the bluff on Tuesday week for Hobnrt and Melbourne, being due at the former place last Friday or early Saturday morning at the latest. The Monowai is the third largest steamer in the company's fleet, and one of the fastest, and has on board close on 200 passengers, in cluded amongst whom arc members of the Jlusgrove Grand Opera Company bound for Melbourne, and the Jubilee Singers, who were billed to anpear at Hobart last Saturday, \ essclsjuvc left in starch for hvr,

He was deservedly held in the highest esteem not only by iiis employers and the workmen under his control but by all members of the craft who had the pleasure of Ins acquaintance.
Werriwa Times. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 23, 1901. CHANGED CONDITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 23 October 1901
Werriwa Times. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 23, 1901. CHANGED CONDITIONS. As a result of the great fight now being fought over the tariff, we have no fear that the cause of protection will suffer in the least ; in fact the discussion on the merits of the opposing policies striving for supremacy in the Common wealth, that are daily going on in the Federal -Parliament and throughout the press .of the several states, cannot result other' than 'ftf, tjie complete discomforture of those; who advocate an open port for United Australia. It is 110 longer a question of concern to the people of New South Wales as pure provincialists. They must now regard the matter from a broader standpoint, and so ■ the fiscal policy, inasmuch as it affects the states as a whole, comes into consideration under totally different conditions to those that have hitherto prevailed. for the same reason, too, the discussions which take place appeal to. us in a manner that was formerly, we might say, impos sible. Hence, a wider ...

FARMERS AND PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 23 October 1901
FARA1ERS AND PROTECTION. (By The lyhe.) when 1 was about three days old, I learned , that my father, iny grandfather, and uncles invariably voted on the side of freetrade; none of them ever got inio hot arguments over the matter at any time 5 it was part of their religion and they stuck to it, and re garded protection just as they regarded the opposite religion—looked "sideways" 011 it Thus it was born and bred in rnc, and for a. considerable .number of years I followed blindly, loosing no opportunity to sneer ex tensively at the other~$ide. I read the speeches of Parkes, Rcid, Wise, Carruthers, McMillan, and even the dreary Britnkcr, ac cepting all their freetrade assertions and protectionist strictures, and firmly convinced that prosperity could alone come through freetrade channels. I saw our once prosper ous Htlle village with its two stores, two hotels, two butchers, two blacksmiths, and in fact two of nearly everything iii the business line, gradually reduced to one of each, a...

The Dowager Lady Carew. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 23 October 1901
The Dowager Lady Carew. Among the comparatively fewnuthentic instances of life prolonged beyond 100 years is to be numbered that of the Dowager Lady Carew, who resides at Woodstown| county Wnterford, and still enjoys excellent health and spirits, notwithstanding tier great age. Her ladyship was boraon 2nd December, 1798, and is therefore in her 103rd year. She enjoys the:rare distinction of having lived in three centuries, linking tiie days of Wellington and Nelson with the latest achievements of Lord Roberts, and witnessing the most marvellous era of progress there lias ever been in the history of the world. Lady Carew was noted for her beauty in the days when she was actively engaged in social life. She wasa con spicuous personality at the Court of Louis l'hilippe, and an appreciative French aulhorily described her at the time as " chabnantc et spiritnellc," while her robe of Irish poplim excited the admiration and envy of the court ladies of the Tuileries. She retains decided tra...

THE TARIFF DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 23 October 1901
THE TARIFF DEBATE. The Treasurer: The hon. momber for Richmond had said that the interests of Now South Wales had not been con sidered. If he (the treasurer) were speaking as a Victorian and not as an Australian—(cheers)—he would at once have said that the interests of Victoria had not been considered to the estent they ought to have been, (Hear, hear, and opposition laughter.) Mr. J. Cook (N.8.W.): Good hoavons! Do you want it all ? Tho Treasurer thought not. Tiio protection had been largely reduced in many items, and in addition necessity Imd compelled them to put duties on certain materials. Ho instanced tho duty on material for sliirt making, which under tho Victorian tariff had been 85 por cent., but which had now been reduced to 25 per cent., with 20 per cent, on tho raw material. How over, he hoped that the tariff would be passed almost unaltored—(cheers)—for the sake of all parts of tho common wealth. It ought to be permanent— (cheers)—for at least 100 years. (Laughter.)

Two Desperate Criminals. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 23 October 1901
Two Desperate Criminals. Adelaide,'Monday.—An outrage of a sensational character occured early this morning at Norwood. Although the official information is very meagre, from the facts which has e come to light it transpires that a young man, E. H. Dudley, resident librarian, of Nor wood Institute, was bound, gagged, tortured, and robbed by two desperate criminals. It seems that Dudley, hearing un usual noises, proceeded to ascertain the cause, when he was confronted by two men. One of them rushed at him with a rope, and he was quickly bound hand and foot, and gagged with a handker chief. The men then secured the cash-box, which only contained a small sum. Dudley, who is about to get married, withdrew £105 from the Savings Bank on Saturday in order to furnish His house. It is thought that the robbers must have had knowledge of the withdrawal of this money, for they asked hiin " Where is Ihe gold?" Dudley for some time refused the information, when they dsliberately Bet to work to ex...

THE MOTION OF CENSURE. A Ballarat Opinion. (From the "Indicator.") [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 23 October 1901
THE MOTION OF CENSURE. A Ballarat Opinion. (From the "Indicator.") The photograph o£ a duckbill platypus would exhibit more backbone than Reid's want of confidence speech. Puerile sentiment, almost to the verge of semi-imbecility, was ladled out like dish-washings from a sixpenny restau rant. Occasionally an underdone Slice of venom was distastefully served up under the serviette of alleged favoured manufacturing firms in Vic toria. The Speaker had at length to repeatedly cheek his waterspout oratory, and insist on personal expres sions being withdrawn when lie em ployed such synonyms as " con foundedly inaccurate " when brought to task for stating in effect that another member had been guilty of untruth. Mr. Substudy Couroy, as usual, gave vent to idiolic interruptions during Prime Minister Barton's reply—Reid chipping in " mongrel tariff'' and other expressions well significant of the calibre of that pedagogue in political duplicity. King O'Malley brought in a well-barbed home-thr...
