As You Like It. [Newspaper Article] — The Bega Budget — 7 April 1906

As You Like It 'I must have liberty Wlllml ns hiriw 11 i-lmrU-r us the wind. Tii blow mi whum I please.' —?'As you i.lkv it.' (Act II, sc. 7.) One of the proposed amendments to tho Arbitration Act submitted to Premier parrulhors by the deputa tion of the Unions provides 'for effective preference to unionists.' The Budget hopes that tho Premier will have enough backbone to put down bis foot in the most empha tic Jway on this class proposal. It is an iniquitous suggestion that the man with the Union tag should have the refusal of any job, and the non-unionist or free man should take his leavings (if any). The device is obviously one to 'force men into the Unions for political purposes. It could have no other object, for it is quite certain that tho unionist of to-c?ay doesn't want increased competition for every available job. To adopt this amendment would strike at the independence of the free la borer and establish a rule of in dustrial tyranny or blackmail. With regard to this prop...

FROM THE BULLETIN. 'Gip' : Why are bush girls so stolid? Why,, aren't they bright, like town girls? I have been eigh teen months in the bush, and I haven't met a slim, graceful girl with an elastic step and bright voice yet. And they're as plenti ful as grass-seeds in the city. Is it too .much sheep and cow that makes them heavy and hairy-faced and thick-ankled? And is it be cause they don't read, and have no matinees to go to and no actors to worship, that they can't converse, and only drawl things about the weather. Even frills and boys don't seem to interest them much. *?**:? Obvious. — Boozer Bill: 'Say, Billy, some of those pictures cost thousands of pounds.' Billy the Wreck: 'You wouldn't catch me givin' it for them.' * * * 'N.J.H.': Two raw police offi cers in N.Q. effected the capture of a gin, wanted for some offence.

ODDS AND ENDS [Newspaper Article] — The Bega Budget — 11 April 1906

ODDS AND ENDS Lieutenant-General Lord de Ros, premier baron of England has just completed his 61st year of service in the British Army, and although 78 years of R^e he is on duty this month a* Uolilstickin Waiting to the King. It is difficult to see how much nearer death a man can go than did Johannes Lellolivin, a Dutch sailor, who has just been discharged from the London Hospital. While riding on the top of a Blackwall omnibus in Commercial-road he cut his throat with a razor. The driver, with rare presence of mind, turned his horses, and drove his vehicle full of passengers to the front door of the London Hospital. An anaesthetic was out of the question, and the man, who lost a large amount of blood, was held down by three assistants while the surgeon sewed up his windpipe and the wound in the throat. The naval programme of the Japanese Government has in terested the British shipbuilding firm of Armstrong, and, according to news by the mail steamer Nikko Maru yesterday, it has de...

The Mitchell-Sarle Match WON BY MITCHELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bega Budget — 11 April 1906

The Mitchell-SjBarlB Match WON BY MITCHELL. Tlie sculling raco between Jobn Mitcbcll and Jobn Searle, whicb took place on Saturday afternoon on tbe Paramatta River, was favored with delightful weather, whilst the water was smooth and in every way suitable for such a contest. Doubtless owing to the numerous and powerful counter attractions, tho attendance on the accompanying steamers did not conic up to expectations, but, on tho other hand, it may bo that the tariff (10/ and 5/) was somewhat too high. Up the river very con siderable interest appeared to be taken in tho match, and there wore large crowds on thu various well known points of vantage, especi ally at Corroy's, Gladi'sville. Abbotsford, and Ilonlcy wharves, and also on the shores around the finishing point. Tho umpire's steamer, tlie Lady Kuwsou, was very poorly patronised, but there was a good crowd on tho .cheaper steamer, the Greyhound.

AUSTRALIAN BUSHRANGING. THE EARLY DAYS. CHAPTER VIII.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — The Bega Budget — 11 April 1906

AUSTRALIAN BUSHRANGING. THE ZEJ^E&ILfS' ZD.A/3TS. By CHARLES WHITE. Chapteb VIII.— Continued. An ineffectual attempt was made early in 1874 to obtain an uncon ditional pardon; then suddenly the news of the bushranger's release was sprung upon the public — for. hitherto the negotiations had been known only to tho chief authori ties, the prisoner, and the prisoner's relatives. The news came through the press reports of proceedings in Parliament. Three months more of the ten years of imprisonment which the Governor had fixed as the limit of Gardiner's punish ment only had to run when an in-, quisitive member of tho Legisla tive Assembly asked the Colonial Secretary if it was true that the Government intended to release the prisoner before the expiration of the sentence passed upon him; and if so, when was that intention to be carried into effect? Tho ques tion wus asked on April 29th, 187-1. The answer was given at once; Mr. Pnrkcs produced and read petitions, recommendations a...
