THE DINGO PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 28 July 1906
THE DINGO PEST. OUR pastoral friends in the Tableland division of the Roeboume district have for several years past suffered considerable losses amongst their flocks through the depredations caused by dingoes, and ad vices recently to hand from the district mentioned show that despite the efforts made to exterminate the destructive animals, the native dogs are increasing in numbers and extending the scope of their predatory excursions. Believing in self-help, the Tableland B>oads Board, recognising the seriouB losses which the dingoes caused, adopted a system of sup plementing the 5s. Government bonus by 2s. 6d., paid out of the board's funds. The Public Works Department vetoed this system, on the ground that it was illegal for the board to spend any of its revenue in this way. In view of the pro visions of the Eoads Act, the Public Works Department's action is quite right, but at the same time the members of the board can hardly be blamed for the course of action they adopted.

The i&artfrmt ®tnus. PASTOEAL, MINING AND PEAELING News. SATtJBDAY, JULY 28, 1906. THE NORTHERN PARTY. FOB the first time in the history of the State Parliament there is now in existence a combination known as "The Northern Party,*' which aims at furthering all matters making for the good of the North. For years past the want of such a party has been acutely felt. Good mem bers have been returned for the various Northern constituencies, but there was no unanimity amongst them; and individual efforts proved abortive to obtain the due recognition by Parliament of the North's claims to consideration. At a consequence, we have in the past witnessed the case of one of the Northern members posing as the prophet of artesian boring; of another who sounded the warcry of a railway to Marble Bar; of a third who wished the pearlers to enjoy a larger measure of public attention; and of yet others who de claimed concerning some particular want peculiar to their own respective district.
