WHAT NAME? [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876

WIIAT NAM1fE 1 An exercise of the tvx humana recently oc curred at the Boston Post Office that, was a little more amusing than musical. An individual stepped to the general de livery window, and, in a somewhat subdued tone, asked "Any letters for me ?" "What name, sir?" said the clerk in at tendance. " Watt," replied the applicant. " What name ?" again said the clerk, still louder, growing red in the face with his effort. " Watt, sir, is mly name," now shouted the applicaut in return. "'What," responded the man of letters, putting in all the power of lungs he possessed, and shouting like a new adjutant at the head of a raw regiment--" what isyour name, sir ?" Yes, I know it is," now screamed the other, red and exhausted. ":Do you mean to keep me yelling at you all tihe day in this manner? Give me my letters." By this time two or three clerks inside the window had come to the rescue of their coln rade, and a small crowd had gathered round tile excited letter-seeker outside, who was s...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876

TnE lM'CUm.LOCir Government hasi afforded another proof of its incapacity I to grapple with any qtestion which does not run in the common groove of ordinary events, and has betrayed its inherent weakness by the satme act. We, of course, refer to the pusillanimous manner in which the Cabinet has dealt < with the case of the Messrs. STE'ENSON, soft-goods importers, tihat is so far as tlhat portion of it which relates to the detention of the firm's letters is con cerned. This part of the case presents some very curious aspects, and it is diflicult to imagine how the Govern ment will now be able to justify their action in this matter. If it was neces sary that the letters should have been opened, sucha course ought to have been followed at the outset, and this would have at once settled the matter. But no, the Government had not the moral courage to do this, although such a course was warranted by thie decision given by Sir WILLIAM STi'AWELL, whe111 ia cLael?oisess was ap pli...

LAND OWNING AND TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876

LAND OJWNING AND TAXA-I TI0V -4--- The close connection subsisting b)etwceenl the foirm of land-tenure prrevailing in a country and the ways and means resorted to for raising revenue is a subject which should not be lost sight of by those who at the pre sent momient are giving attention to either the laid question or the taxation question. The connection amounts to this : when the laud remains, as it ought ever to remain, the collective property of the community, the rent paid by those in temporary occupation should sullice foir the general purposes of revenle, and taxes should be tnnccessary; and on the other hand, when the land is alienated to individuals, and especially wlen it is imonopolised by a few individuals, taxa tion in some shape or other becomes a state of necessity, and the burden of taxation is in variably thrown upon such of the community as are least ablle to bear it. A double iniquity is thus perpetrated, for the people are not only deprived of their equal rights i...

MR. J. H. CONNOR AND THE ELECTORS. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 28 April 1876

MiR. J. H. CONNOR AND THE ELECTORS. (TO TLHE EDITOR OF TIIE HIERALD.) Si:,-A letter, signed "Fair Play," ap pears in the last issue of your subsidised local contemporary, respecting Mr. J. H. Connor holding a public meeting at Colac, and " Fair Play" evidently seemls to be in a great pucker about it. He does not want poor Josehll to come amongst these common electors, and get cross-questioned as to "the reason why." They might want to know why Joseph turned traitor, you know, and that would be very awkward. .It is not difficult to guess the quarter from wheiice this precious letter, signed "Fair Play," emanated. It proceeds from one of the hole and-corner clique of Conservatives, who were allowed to rule the roost too long in Colae, and now that they find themselves in a minority in public matters, they, like beaten curs, tike refuge in harmless yelping, and say, " 01h, don't have anything to do with public meetings in Colac, for they are only got up by a 'certain clique,' to ' heap...
