For Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
For Australia. 1 (By The Hon. B. It. Wise, K.O.) | I was a member of the Federal Convention and have been associated with the Federal movement since its inception by Sir Henry Parkes in 1789. I may therefore claim, -with out egotism, to know something about our Constitution, why it was made, what it intended and wherein it has succeeded or failed. As a law yer I know something also of the in terpretation put upon it by the High Court. I am not however a capital ist, nor am I subsidised by capitalists, therefore I cannot tour the State and address public meetings. The utmost I can do is io reason with my pen, and appeal by argument to the reason . of others. Accordingly I propose to ,expjainthe proposed Amendments of the Constitution as clearly as I can in a series of letters in order that the vote upon them may be given with intelligence; because I believe that these are not well understood, and I know that they are being grossly and ludicrously misrepesrented. NATIONS MUST GROW. Te...

Stallion Certification [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
Stallion Certification \ Mr. W. Muggridge, judge in the ' horse section at the Mudgee show, severely criticised the present system of certification of stallions. Mr. Mupgridge, as "Merrigang," has dealt with this matter very strongly in the Stock and Station Journal, and has pointed out that some oft he veterinary officers have themselves admitted that they are not : competent to decide whether a horse is fit to stand the season or not. Their ! work is purely veterinary, whereas the question on which they are called upon j to judge is more a matter of utility. A . number of instances are known where vets, have given diametrically opposite decisious respecting certain horses. Of course, it is pointed out that provision is made for appeal against a decision of a veterinary officer, but the expense and trouble of appeal are too heavy a handicap for many small owner. It is required that at any time within 30 days of the examination the appeal must be lodged in writing, and muBt be ac co...

Straying Stock, WITH APOLOGIES FOR ADAPTION. Under the spreading shady tree, The Cowra milch cow stands ; A represent!!' ive is she Of those which roam in bands, And lie along U.e picket fence And path ami private lands.

The Ladies Who Won't be Counted. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 31 March 1911
The Ladies Who Won't Counted. Those strange, wild ladies of England who batter policemen,' inob politicians, ride white horses through the streets, and go to gaol to be baud-fedon hominy have broke-) out in a iresh place. In this happy land we are quite ready to admit their rights to a part in ali the joys of political ba tie ; but their methods seem just as absurd to us as they do to dwellers by i ho Thames _ and Mersey. A woman nlways looks ridiculous when she - uses force, and the truculent darasek who head the woman's movement in England have furnished the only really sound arguments which can be advanced, agsinsc their cause. A man would be much more will ing to give a vote co a hungry lioness es caped from a menagerie than to a wild woman armsd with warlike spectucles and a battle brolly, who howled aloud in fierce ! rivalry of the costermongers for her claim | to be placed on an equality with the sober civil old gentlemau against whom her 1 worst vituperation is hurled Of cou...

"The Lone Hand." [ The subject of Defence has nowadays a | placo in almost every number of " The | Lone Handimd the rapidly growing in terest taken by Australians in this impor tant problem is doubtless responsible for the two first articlos iu the April issuo of the National monthly. " An Open Letter to the Minister for Defence " puts what is assumed to be tho average man's opinion of our army of children. Tho letter is writ ten with humor; but the stern roality of its meaning is plain to see. The sccond article, " Building Australia's Navy," is not so much concerned with tho putting to gether of tho third dostroyer in the docks at Port Jackson as with the meaning of this first oxperiraont at warship building. The author puts forcibly boforo his readers, the oxtont to which Australia is committed if she means to make her naval defonco eiHciont. Uoth these articles will keenly interest the reader; and their patriotic noto is what wo should oxpect in so patriotic a magazino. The' rec...
