Mr. Paxtou, the President of the gmiu section of the Chamber of Commerce, said, to use his own words, ' it was simply perfect,' aud had other districts of N.S.W. grown wheat of a similar nature, the stand ard would have been placed on a higher lever.

Definition of Murder. ACTING CHIEF JUSTICE'S VIEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 February 1906
Definition of Murder. Acting Chief Justice's Views' The acting Chief Justice (Sir Ed ward Holroyd) in summing up in the case of William Scanlon, who was charged at the Bendigo Supreme Court on Thursday last with the wilful murdor of his sister, said : — ' A man who has tho misfortune when he is committing a felony to kill someone he did not intend to kill is guilty of murder. If a man in doing some unlawful act which does not amount to a felony kills someone he is guilty of manslaughter, even although he does not intend to kill. This gives riso to a curious state of things, in which I may be wrong, but I think I am right. It is this : — If a man attempts to kill himself, he is attempting to commit murder ; and if, in trying to kill himself, ho takes the life of someone else, he is, in my opinion, guilty of murder. This view may be disputed, but I have considered it thoroughly.'
Federal Politics. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 February 1906
Federal Politics. Mr. Beid, in the course of a long statement on federal matters, said that the report of the Tariff Commis sion need not be set aside by the proposed fiscal truce. Any of its recommendations which aimed at redressing anomalies or hardships without raising the fiscal issue could be favourably considered. The tariff, if touched at all, would only be al tered on broad lines of adjustment of which both sides approved. To his mind the socialistic development of the past few months raised the whole issue of personal freedom, including the right to trade or manufacture, whether under a revenue or a pro tective tariff- There could not be any surrender of principle, therefore, j in meeting that larger issue of per sonal freedom which had been raised by Mr Watson, the ally of Mr. Deakiu. Unless anti-socialists were prepared to fight the socialists with their double-edged weapons, defeat would followevery time. The social ists saw with delight the high tariffists preparing for...

Sporting Notes. [Newspaper Article] — The Corowa Chronicle — 14 February 1906
Sporting Notes. At Sandown Park on Saturday, Pendant accounted for the Sandown Park Handicap, and Istria the Spec ial- weight Hace. Both mares belong to Mr. James Brennan,' of Sydney. As a result of their respective wins, they have shortened considerably- for the rich sprint races to be decided in Victoria during the next few* weeks. For the Gakleigh Plate, to be run uext Saturday, Istria is a pronounced favorite at 3 to 1, while her stable companion is but a couple of points longer. Machine Gun is quoted at 7 to 1, Condor at 12 to 1, Projecturo and Lachlaii at li to 1, while, front 16 to 50 to 1 is on offer against the others. While the market at this stage suggests that both Istria and Pend ant may run in the Oakleigh Plate, which is improbable, it points to Pendant being the stable choice for the Newmarket, for while the Par Nicute mare rules favorite at 8 to 1, for the Flemington event the Haut Brion filly is at 20 to 1. Speculation over the Australian Cup has been limited. Scot...
