The Tamworth Daily Observer TUESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1911. SHIRE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 17 January 1911
TUESDAY, .1 ANTAIiV 17, 1'Jll. SHIREELEGTIONS! The intention ot several of the retiring shire councillors not to seek reelection makes it more necessary than ever for rate payers to diffuse as nnicli interest as pos sible in tile coming ballot selections, inas much as the affairs of the shires will be vested in untried councillors, and unsatisfac tory conditions may arise if no more than passing interest is evinced in the event. It Is not suggested that untried candidates are lacking the necessary qualillcations to fill the position. On the contrary, the bounds ot prudence arc not overstepped, when the statement is made that the present aspir ants for shire honors, taken as a body, pos sess ability, and judgment, which fit them to carry out the important duties satisfac torily to the shire, and which, if given scope, would rellect credit on themselves. (The point, however, to impress upon the rate payers is^that they will bo sufficiently in terested-to allow of the most qualified ca...
NOTES. [?]E COLLECTORS PRODUCERS? [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 17 January 1911
NOTES. •rtTrtB COLLECTORS PRODUCERS? The .interjection made by an alderman at ■ the last Council meeting, that collectors are not producers is somewhat ambiguous, for 1t mainly depends upon circumstances .whether a collector is a producer or not. Certainly the primary duty of a collector is to produce (it matters not which way) outstanding accounts, which have the same characteristics as a Marathon race. Said accounts being long winded he is prepared for a stiff chase. He honestly tries to ex tract, wheedle or frighten the bashful coin from its dark and hidden recesses, and if he succeeds he is a sort of a hero, and fully entitled to the solemn name of producer. If he fails in his objective, he yet produces, but in an entirely different way. What he is productive of in this latter event, is not printable, hut it may be accepted as 'language with a sprinkling of sulphuric acid." But don't blame the collector' i£ he does not produce in the desired way; just sec&on it Is not hi...

The oillcers follow ed the fugitive, who took shelter in a bedroom and after a desperate struggle they succeeded in overpower ing him. Denmead locked himself in a room, but the detectives smashed the door open. The escapee then jumped through the open window and made Cor the lane way, but Detective Surridge overtook him and after a sharp struggle the fugiti...

THE GREAT SAWDUST QUESTION. (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Tamworth Daily Observer — 17 January 1911
THE GREAT SAWDUST QUESTION. (To tho Edito/.) It seems strange that nine out of eleven aldermen should so far forget themselves as to vote for a policy that will rob tlio ratepayer of his bit of sawdust. What is their motive? Is it a malicious desire 011 their part to reduce the town to a state of pestilence and disease, or have they really a valid reason for their action? To hear some of the criticisms through tlie press anil from other sources, one would bo tempted to conclude that this awful thing had been done during u fit of collective madness, and that these representatives of the peoiilo are hardly lit to bo outside a lunatic asylum, much less legislate for an important town liko Tamworth. Such criticism is all very line and large as far as it'goes, but it does not 20 far enough. The hasty critic has jumped on tlio judgment scat, and without waiting to hear the counsel for the defence, has found the nine aldermen guilty. "Jfah!" saij 0110 of these hasty critics. What did I10 m...
