THE RABBIT PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 21 July 1906
THE RABBIT PEST. The following article is taken from The Pastoralials' Review : " What the general public fail to appre ciate is the extent of the damage done to Australian production by the rabbit pest utid the immensity of the expenditure in keeping it within bounds. Volumes of letters and resolutions are expended upon the importance of the rabbit export, which amounted to .£570,000 for the Common wealth last year. But this sum, though it sounds big in print, is a great deal less than is being spent at present every year merely in measures to keep the pest with in bounds. Wedo not fenuw bow . figures could, be put together on thiB point, bnt seeing that several of the large financial companies spend over £10,000 a year each in this way, it is safe to say that the total annual expenditure in netting, poisoning, and other. destructive methods must not be xfar off a million sterling a year, and nearly double the value of the rabbit ex pott trade. But this expenditure only . keeps ;tb...

The first place where I halted is the one best known to Southern ers,' where aboriginal children have for eome.four or five years been receiving systematic domestic, moral and religious training from Mrs. MeLeod. To that amiable lady's credit be it said that ber praiseworthy and altruistic efforts have been crowned, as they deserve to be, with a very large measure of success.

The Northern Times. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, JULY 21, 1906. THE MAYORAL VACANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 21 July 1906
The Hivxtz. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEABLINO NEWS. SATURDAY, JULY 21, 1906. THE MAYORAL VACANCY. Tse newE of Mr Baston's retirement from the Mayorai chair wiH be re ceived with general regret by the residents of Carnarvon and the Gas coyne district who take aji interest in municipal matters. The cause o i the Major's relinquishment of the office which he has tilled so admirably should not in our opinion be ascribed primarily to the little contretemps which occurred at the meeting of the municipal council on Tuesday last. This probably caused Mr. Baston to hand in his resignation earlier than he had anticipated, but for some time past he has made no secret of the fact that his private bnsiness made such demands on his time as to pre- | elude his devoting as mu2h attention to municipal matters as formerly. The municipal work is much greater j now than it was a few years ago, and j it is high time the system by which j the Mayor is expected to act as general supervisor of works was altere...
