Not a Newspaper. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 19 May 1903
Not a ftewspatper. It will be a. surprise to most people to learn that ' The Times ' is not a ne w spa per once it reaches Australia. At. least this is what tho central postal authorities interpret the Postal Act to mean. Since they read the law in this way, a copy of ' The Times' or any other newspaper published out side A ustraliacan only be forwarded from State to State once it is within the Commonwealth at the ' printed paper' rate of postage, which is greater than that for Australian newspaper*. Correspondents complain that' London newspapers, when sent ou to friends, are surcharged by the postal officials. Tlio central bureau explain that, in doing this, they are only carrying out the law as it stands, lor tho reason already given. . j - ; i T

Good Feed for Bacon Pigs. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 19 May 1903
Good Feeil for Itacou Pigs. Fok growing the bacon pig in winter the mangold has become av staple art icle of feed (says a Canadian farmer.) In fuct, -without the root, the industry Would languish, so far as the winter months are concerned.; The .majority of pig feeders practice the pulping of mangolds, aud. mixing iti whatever hie.il they use, and storing for a day iu a box. The mass warms up, the meal is softened, and seemingly the nutrient is more easily- assimilated by the animal system. The quantity of nieal used is in accordance with the age and time they are to be marketed. It is surprising how cheaply pigs so fed can be carried on, in ? winter, and what profitable returns for labour are secured. It is true that, roots are probably the most expensive of all crops grown on the ordinary fann. Counting half tho value of the manure applied as taken up by the crop, and adding thereto the cost of labour and rent for land, we find all to make a cost of £6 to £7 per acre. But then the...

, Woman's Franchise Bill.

The State Premier received a reply on Tuesday ?intimating that the Royal assent would be given at the next Council meeting. Sir John See, in passing, said that he knew the absence of his Majesty the King had precluded the assent be ing given earlier. Now, however, that his Majesty had returned, it. would be done at the earliest opportunity, viz., the Council meeting referred to. ' Then,' said the Premier, . ' we will go to work and issue the ' rights,' and clear the decks for the fight that is to come. Giving the womqn „ the vote means enfranchising half the 'adult, population, and I think it will be fruit ful of results as far as social legisla tion is concerned.

The Telephone and Non-Subscribers. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 19 May 1903
TSte Telephone ami Xiuir i Subscribers The Postmaster-General, (says the Melbourne ' Age') is investigating a suggestion tint publicans and others whose telephones are frequently tap ped, illegally, by customers aud friends, should be charged an additional rental, and that the post office should sell books of telephone coupons to the pub lic, t.he presentation of one of which would enable private telephones to be used, if the. subscribers agreed. At the end of each year the subscribers would obtain credit for a certain pro portion of the face value of the coupons they have received, whereby reducing their rental. As long ago as 1897 the. Victorian Deputy Postmaster General obtained the assent of the Go vernment to the issue of coupons at 4s a dozen, enabling a subscriber to use any telephone in tho metropolis in order to communicate with his own number. This arrangement was, of course, superseded by the Federal regulations, but. it paved the - way to a sympathetic consideration of t...
Mr. Balfour Speaks. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 22 May 1903
Mr. fltalf'onr Speaks. Mr. Balfour, the British Prime Minister, in replying to a great depu tation which protested agains't'the re mission of the corn tax, denied that the tax was ever intended as part of the fiscal system. It was, he said, a war tax, aud must be connected witli a great national need' or a great change of national policy. ' Protection, said Mr. Balfour, could not be intro duced quietly and accidentally, but on the impulse of the whole people. He favoured universal freetrade, and was of opinion that protection in other countries ' gave us many advantages.' Speaking as to the union of Great Britain with her colonies, Mr. Balfour said the proposal was a difficult one, and might some day be possible ; but fiscal union could not come from one or two industries. It could only come from the heart and intellect of the people.
