THE GAS QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 August 1854

THE\GÀS QUESTION. In our last nnmber we promised to re- turn to the discussion of this topic, and to deduce from the data therein pre sentedj such conclusions as might seem reasonably to follow. We now redeem our promise. It is quite dear that any company professing to be instituted primarily for the public good, and claiming general support mainly, on that ground is n'ot entitled to a profit equal to that which it might reasonably claim, were it at once to set forth its own gain as its principal end. It would be a task of some difficulty were we to attempt quadrating the professions of the com- pany which has met with the most ge- neral support, with the rate of dividend which it should require. Thus much, however, we may feay, that unless some plan be devised to fix the maximum dividend, at a rate proportionate to the current value of money, one of the principal benefits to be derived from the company's establishment-good light -at the lowest price-will not be I secured. Before pr...

THE MAGISTRATES' MEETING [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 2 August 1854

THE MAGISTRATES' MEETING " Great cry and little wool," is an adage of modern as well ancient, appli- cation, and may be fitly quoted with reference to the proceedings to which the above heading refers. It would not be easy> in the history of the colony, to find a more absurd termination to a proceeding promising at the outset no small dignity and reso- lution. The Magistrates met. brimful of virtue, and-»may we add-self esteem. They appoint their committee of investigation, which proceeds to alarm all the tipplers in Hobart Town by its' rigid and pertinacious enquiries. Schedules and reports follo\vedwhen,in stead of discussing their contents, three hours and a half were occupied in con- sidering the dangers it would involve. As a last resource, the Attorney and Solicitor-Generals were appealed to for guidance and council. The íeply of those august functionaries, backed by the awful terrors of the Chairman of Quarter Sessions, was ominous of civil, -fiftncrfj"^rney*T£53dled up th...
