Reduction of Members. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 26 January 1904

Reduction of Members. THE topic of the hour in parliamentary circles is the appointment of three com missiwnors to redistribute seats in the Legis lative Assembly and so control to a great extent, the making of the new Par:iament. The name of Judge Murray has been men tioned so persistently in this connection that the public have become accustomed to look upon him as a certainty for the chairmanship of the Commission. There is every indication by the discussion in the House last week, .that Judge Mnrray will not be appointed if certain members of the cabinet can prevent it. Mr. T. A. Coghlan, the Government Statistician, and Messrs M'Far land and Curry, of the Lands Department, are said to be the most probable colleagues, though it is impossible to say what develop. ments might take place. A prominent member of Parliament, on being asked his opinion of the prospects of teduction per medium of Judge Murray, said " There will be definite opposition by certain members of the Government...

A report was read from the Inspector stating that owing to the inflatnmmable Igature of the grass and the risk attached to plIos phorous poisoning he did not insist upon landowners the urgency of the continuance of the destruction of rabbits during the past few months, but he now deemed it essential that action should be taken. The report was received, and a discussion ensued as to the most suitable time for a simultaneous action for the destruction. of rabbits to begin, the meeting deciding that occupiers of ...

Public Speaking [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 26 January 1904

Public Speaking ---0--- FROM Dr. Fitchett's new Magazine "Life" just to hand, we extract the following from a valuable article contributed by the Right Hon. G. H. Reid :-" If I had to advise a young fellow how to acquire the art of pub lic speaking, I should say to him: (1) Join a literary club which includes debating and the writing and discussion of essays. (2) Go to the debating club for three months without saying anything at all; simply listen, watch, and assimilate. (3) After three months of silence-which I would vary by preparing speeches, just as if I were going to deliver them-take one point in a debate, make up your mind what to say, say it, and then sit down. (4) For your irst speech never peak more than five minutes. Of course, some men would have to wait longer than three months, whilst others would be able to speak in less than that time; but my advice would be, not to be too eager to get up, or to wait too long before doing so. (5) When you are readly to make a longer...

" ' WITIr WHIU HARR INCORPORATED Queanbeyan Time.s, Bungendore Mirror Cantain's Flat Miner. TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 1904. THE STATE ELECTIONS. ErEcTons may now reasonably suppose that the next Parliament will be of 90 members instead of 125. The only obstacle which could arise in the way of the speedy inter pretation of the referendum into law, would bea -delay postponing the granting of the Royal assent to the Bill until after the. pre sent Parliament had dissolved throughaffiux ion of time.. However, the chance of the difficulty arising is not considerable; and voters should prepare for an election of 90 members.. Electors have greater need for organisation on this occasion than ever be fore.. The number of retiring members will be in excess of the constituencies by 35, and a very careful campaign plan will be neces sary to prevent two or more candidates stand ing for the same electorate, while.both pro fessing to support the same politics. This disfranchising of the majority invaria...

Open Column MUNICIPAL REFORM. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 26 January 1904

Open Column MUNICIPAL REFORM. To TIH EDRJR. Sir,-A little over twelve months ago I ad dressed a letter, upon the question of rating I .nd values, to the press of the State. About 100 papers were good enough to publish it. With your kind permission I would like to again bring this important question under the notice of your readers. At present the general rate is levi ed upon nine-tenths of the fair average rental value of land and im. provemeuts, and upon 5 per cent. of the capital value of unimproved land. How does it work ? Hero are a few examples, which I obtained at the Council Chambers, North Sydney. As vacant land rates: £3 6 4 1 16 0 149 As improved rates : 19 1t -" "- 191iv 25 1" Inorease: 20 7 5 15 15 0 18 5 6 28 5 9 -These are cases where vacant land was sold and the purchasers instead of holding it idle as a speculation. built terraces of houses.

The matter was one in which Senior-se.geant Borthistle appealed against the decision of the police magistrate at GundagaR in dismissing an information laid against Frederick Sanaders, .a drover. Saunders was charger that, being in charge of about 1,820 sheep at Mullally, he' did not produce a "travelling statement" upon demand by a police constable. He pleaded not guilty, and, the magistrate dismissing the information, the Crown appealed.

Cricket News. QUEANBEYAN v. GININDERRA. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 January 1904

Cricket News. QUEANBEYAN v. GININDERRA. AT Gininderra on Tuesday the Queanbeyan Cricket Club met more than their equals. They suffered a defeat, by one innings and 55 runs. Thu Gininderraites have always been known among local cricket circles as a " rather tough club to tackle," and perhaps because of the victory gained by Giniuderra on Tuesday, the localites hmay be led to practice more, so that they may be capable of playing a better match the next time they meet a neighbouring team. The Giuinderra Club is far more extensive than the localites and a great deal of enthnsiasm is evinced in the game in that district, whereas the local team is practically new, the members so few that a dificultyis experienced in selecting a competent team, and more than all they ab. so'utely neglect practice. Fqr Queaubeyan Ling was the only player who batted fairly, putting up 26. For the homi team Hoazlett, 'Hollingsworth, G. Gribble, and A. Boyd made good scores. At one o'clock the local. itos were...

Spontaneous Combustion. ON Saturday a stack of about 30 tons' of lucerne hay at the farm at Tumbledown (eays the Oooma Mercury), fired by spontaneous combustion. The stack, which has been erected about a month, was packed fairly green, as it was the first out of hay which had a lot of barley grass amongst it. The first signs of the fire Occurred on Saturday morning at one end, and swept all round the stock. Mr. F Blazland arrived when the stack was a black mass, when earth was thrown on the framework foundation to prevent draught, ifter which water was carted and thrown on. By these means the spread of the fire was kept from the other stacks. By aboc t 9 30 Mr. J A Feilen, with Messers 0. Roberson and M. Rollason, were the first on the scene, and afterwards Mr. Jacob Feilon and Mr. W. Stewart assisted.

CYCLING SPORTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 29 January 1904

CYCLING SPORTS. TO THE RDIT B. Sia,-Reported inyour last issue I noticed a bicycle road race from Hoskingtown to Bungendore, and in reading same led me to meditate on the rapidly declining; enthusiasm of cycling and other sports in Queanbeyan. Once we had a local bicycle club, probably the break-up of which may be attributed to the endeavours of the members to work matters on too high a scale. It is now defunct, and apparently, so is cycling. As a lover of the wheel, and an enthusiast in sports of every description, I would humbly suggest that another attempt be made to or ganise a club so that a day's sport may be held on Easter Monday. When we look around, and see our neighbours-lBraid wood for instance, where the prizes in a recent carnival amounted to £zz5-we, who used to hold our own among them, feel despon dent. A club for Queanbeyan is ofttimes spoken of, but procrastination means retro gression, and-to keep up the sporting name of our town we must not become relax, and in sp...

Garden and Field Calentlar for Jari nary, 1904. --o (B, A Lanrrdowee, Seedemrn,- Goulburn ) THE soil is suffioiently moist for cropping and large areas of winter fodder plqnts should be sown at once. Good suppllies of fodder roots and green loed will prove valuable and stipecior to hay, etc., for ieedi,,g, 'especially i for dairy purposes.
