GILT EDGED INVESTMENT [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 17 June 1927
GILT EDGED INVESTMENT Much interest is still i-cing shown locally in the New Zealand Perpetual Forests, Ltdi. It may be stated, by way of comparison, oiA in answer to -enquiry, that a £25 bond in five 'years will be worth £1'>0. in ten' years Ptbout £220; and tnen propor- tionately right away through. The New Zealand Government are giving the Company favored assistance. In the case of the death of a bone» holder the value of the land for probate purposes is assessed on the unimproved' value and thus the heirs or assigns escape heavy death duties which would otherwise- be payable on the value of the timber 01* iny other improvement on the land. The Government have given the Company an option over 150,000 acres of suit . able freehold land, this quantity to he available each year for the next sixteen years. This area largely ex- ceeds the requirements of the com- pany, but evidently the i.ïoveriment intend that the company shall no be in any way hampered for want of room for extens...

WALL v. THE KING Ex parte King Won Ex parte Wah On [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 17 June 1927
WALL v. THE KING Ex parte King Won Ex parte Wah On The "Standard" has been devoting pages to the dissenting judgment of Mr Justice Isaacs although the other six judges on the bench agreed the appeal should! be allowed.No mention of course is 'made of Justice Isaacs' trenchant remarks on the Habeas Corpus regarding the release of these Chinese »by the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory. In our issue of the 20th May we published the majority decision of four judges andi so that re aiders may foran their own conclusion we now print, the judgments of the remain- ing two justices. HIGGINS, J.-In my opinion this' appeal should be allowed. The mere fact that the alleged Chinaman has been released from custody pending his trial on the information is not a ground for prohibiting the Court of Summary Jurisdiction from pro- ceeding with 'the trial. The writ of prohibition is based; ,on wrong grounds, on its face. It recites, in - substance, the information of the 25th May, 1926, charging ...

PREVENTING DIPHTHERIA EPEDEMIC. CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER'S PROPOSED MEASURES [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 17 June 1927
PREVENTING DIPHTHERIA EPED EMIC. CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER'S PRO- POSED MEASURES While the population of Darwin has so far been singularly free from cases of Diphtheria, this very fact from the standpoint of medical science-renders it unusually suscep- tible to the epidemic should it once make a start. In countries where Diphtheria comes along with unfail- ing regularity, the popudation^ by the process of survival becomes, to a certain extent immune. Should the disease once get a start in * North Australia it would be likely to spread! to a devastating extent. The Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ce- cil E. Cook* .therefore proposes to . apply the Schick Test to children at- . tending the schools .nnd also to Aborigines at the Compound. The decision has been arrived at as a result of finding that a lew cases of illness in Darwin were sufficiently like Diphtheria to call, attention to the necessity for preventative mea- sures. The; Schick Test is perfectly harm- less, simple and painless. A sma...
