Is it a Free Country. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 16 November 1898

Sir,—I note by your; issue of the 9th inst., that- Chief Justice Way" intones a BitileChristi.iii hymn moroin; an j even ing. So far so good, but also, that he insist# on the attendance of all under his roof. As it 13 not to bo expected that every person in the Lieutenant Governor's numerous household has a partiality for hymns of the above kind, and taking for granted that you have good authority for your anonncement, I have no hesita tion in stigmatizing his conduct as arbit rary and tyrannic U, unworthy of an individual who presides.in our courts: of jns»ice. Tho Chief Justices action is a direct inference with tho liberty «( the subject, and a Spanish inquisition of a modified form, which should not be tolerated in an enlightened community. It is imperative that our: public men should be liberal and broad-minded - in ; their views. A truly religions man does i not parade bis religion. +Tbara,.^IM.:S^ WttJKANTtni. {The mriWMitaken from t ^arely:?s man is entitled to do as be like...

%\xz $ot't pvic - Jtcmber. Wednesday, November 16, 1898. The Public Service. Without-discussion the Public Ser vice Code was read a second time in the Legislative Geuncil, but this fact is no indication that the measure iv to escape criticism and amendment. The majority of public servants dis approve of the Code chiefly because there is no provision for a Board to protect them from the Ministers. What makes it exceedingly import ant that our Public Service should attract, develop, and retain the best talent is the increasing in num ber of State Socialistic enterprises which depend for their success upon the integrity, ability, and enthusiasm with which they are conducted. It will nob pay the colony to have cheap and nasty work. The best workmen are the lhost profitable. Reform of the Civil Service shou'd rest on this principle. How can the Public Service, as a life-long calling,, be made attractive to the brain and character of the people ? There must be opportunity to enter, fair p...

Sa&itary sad Otherwise. TO THE EDITOR. : Sir—I atri a man with a grievance, arid one that I have ventilated for the past four years with but little effect. I refer to the turning of rubbish on the South Park Lands nearly opposite and within; a short distance of my residence. Yester day and to-day the stench has been simply abominable, necessitating the clos ing of all doors and windows to keep it out. It is needless for me to point out how welcome a cool southerly wind is during the hot weather, and to be compelled to exclude it owing to the above cause is more than I feel inclined to bear. The sanitary conditions of this important town are bad enough in all conscience, and the supervision; w itnouc any apology to officers) is particalatlv Ux I speak from exper ience. I have no hesitation in saying that in Ptne proper there exist at least half a dozen real * up-to-date" double-distilled stints qmte sufllcient to promote an epidemic of typhoid or other viru'ont I disease.

Mark Twain Again. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 16 November 1898

Mark Ew&ia Again. Mr. Mark Twain has said some very el ever tilings that have been widely repeated, and his description of sea-sickuess might be classed ! among them. ; " At first," he says, '•'you are very much afraid you are going to die, but after a little as you get it worse, you are: very much afruid you are not I going to die and heartily wish you were." Few people cdu Id have said so much in so few words. A tale that may be of as much interest to the average reader, though no1; put in so terse a form, is told by Mr. Wm, Altwood, of Hose-street, Glebe, New castle, who recounts his experience os follows :—I suffered for many years from dyspepsia and constipation of the severest description, and I could get ho relief Until I chanced to come across B le Beans for Billiousness. I was troubled greatly with a feeling of fulness after eating, no matter how little I might eat. Then between my shoulders I had a terrific pain. I had "also an almost continual pain across the bowe...

Sononrisg the Eumble Brave. Mr. G. F. Watts, the famous artist, has just pub forward a scheme in London for memorialising the heroes of humble life, whose deeds are too often praised for a day aud then per mitted to pass into the limbo of for gotten things. Mr. Watts has pro mised to build at his own cost an open gallery in what is known as '• The Postmen's-park," neii the General Jfost-otBce, to bo used for memorials of brave 'deeds Mi Watts's idea is to have the gallery quite plain, with nothing to distract attention foin the records. The memorials will probably be in terra cotta, as the most suitable and dur able material. Mr. Watts will him self (says the Daily Neics) provide at least the first memorial. He intends, as a start, to record the brave story of Alice Ayres. i It will bo! re-] membered that in April, 1885, a big fire broke* oat at an oil maker's in Gravel-lane.
