ifloch selection. Ai the quarterly meeting on Wed nesday of members ^of the Women Political Education League, Sydney, a mock election was held. There was a large attendance of women voters.

Curious Oriental Customs. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 19 May 1903
Curious Orientai CJiistoniNi Thure are many traits, of character iuid custom in which the Arabs and Turks are our antipodes: ? They shave ?the head but not the chin, and we the reverse. .With us the uncovering of the head iu the presence of another is a mark of respect, with them a mark of disrespiect. . When they go into n place of worship, they keep on the lint and take off the shoes and slippers; we do the opposite. They mouut oil the rislit side of a horse, aud we from left to right. We show our good breeding by taking the outsido when we pass persons in the street, they by passing nearest to the wall. They do the honour^ of the table by serving; themselves .first; we serve ourselves last. If a friend inquires after your, wife you regard it as a compliment; to inquire after theirs is an insult. Their mourning dress is white, ours black'. They finish their wooden house from . the top downward, and we from the foundation up. The men wear frocks and the women pantaloons. We wish th...

The Late Strike. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 19 May 1903
The B-ate Strike. Tite railway strike in Victoria now happily ended, promised, ah the begin ning, to prove most disastrous to that State — not only indeed to the people of Victoria, bat to the whole com mercial interests of the whole of the States. The strike occurred at a very bad time — that is, at a time when there is a general depression — a very great hardship must have been the re sult had the trouble continued any I lengt h of time. There must, of course, be a conflict of opinion as to the question whether the strike was justi fied — but it will doubtless be more or less generally conceded that 'the people's employees are placcd in a different position to the employees of private individuals, and that the officers of the Public Service should not be in a position to be able to de-. miind that the service should be run as they consider it ought, uuder threat of disorganisation. Servants of the people have not the same need for unions as workers outside the Service heve, as the...
