It would be transferred from a scene of action whore it is exerted on agents who are invested with conspicuous public func tions; who are responsible for the dis charge of their trust; who are watchod by tlio whole nation which they repre sent; who are impelled by prido and tho love of reputation at least, if not by bet ter principles, to keep themselves politic ally puro; who have tho most ample op portunities of intelligence; who arc little exposed to be hurried away by sudden phrensy; to agents obscure, irresponsible, sorvilo, ignorant, and unstable. Every borough and every county would exhibit the picture of a porpetual general elec tion. For, although the p...

CHAPTER XIX. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
CHAPTER XIX. As the result of his interview with Miss Devereiix the same afternoon, Stamvell returned to London more de termined than fever to unravel the mystery connected with the million aire's disappearance. In the. face of recent events, Red grave's courage returned, and he made up his mind to take up his quarters at Deepdean Hall for the present. Miss Devereux and . her mother could stay on if they wished, or they might leave; he did not intend to in fluence them one way or another. - From what had. just transpired, it .was plain that his uncle had been 'effectually dealt- with, and was in all probability, despite Hermann Dough ton's duplicity, safely secured, in ac cordance with the plot arranged pre viously. ' * Jf this were so, and present indica t.ons seemed to point conclusively in that direction, then it would only be come a matter of time before he would be in a position to prove his uncle's death, and claim his vast wealth. Encouraged by these prospects, he took himsel...

Issuing Permits and Remuneration. [Newspaper Article] — Cowra Free Press — 22 April 1911
Issuing Permits and Remunera tion. Recently Mr. A. B. Burgess (secre tary uf the Bathurst JPastureB Protec tion Board) wrote to the Chief Inspector of stock to ask whether the Board would be in order in remunerating Mr. J. M. Paul, of Orange, for- his services as acting-inspector for th^ issue of per mits, etc. At the last meeting of the Board a reply was recoived to the follow ing effect : "Mr. Paul is not required to issue trarelling statements, i e., to fill the same up as permits; The posi tion of acting-inspector for issuo of por rnits is an honorary appointment, and it is not considered advisable to establish a precedent by paying for such services as the expense, if generally adopted, would be very cosHerable." Of course the expense would be very considerable; but as the work in Orange is very con siderable, why should Mr. Paul or any one else be expected to do' it for nothing. It is quite refreshing the way a Labour Government, which preachos s.o much about the laborer being...
