BROOME NOTES. BROOME, August 8. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 25 August 1906
BROOME NOTES. BBOOME, August 8. Broome just now is very quiet. When one looks back four or five years you would hardly believe such a difference could take place in so short a time. The pearlers have had a very bad time this last three years, shell going down repeatedly. One or two rather fine pearls have been found lately by Captain Talboys, Messrs. Freney, Coleman, Sam Taylor, and others, who all deserve their good fortune, having played an uphill game for a few years. A repre- sentative meeting of the W.A. Pearlers' Association was held at the Literary In- stitute on the 6th inst. The principal topic discussed was the advisability of re- ducing the output, wbich seems to far ex- ceed the demand. Various suggestions were made, viz., that of reducing the fleets as follows: Owners of 4, 5, or 6 boats to reduce 1 The owners of these boats so laying up to be compensated in the following way: A levy to be made of £12 10s. per working lugger of the boats now in commission, which would m...

VICTORIA. Melboobne, A.ngost 26. A peculiar land subsidence occurred at Timboon a few days ago, when an area of nine square yards sank bodily eight feet.

AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE. LONDON, August 30. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 1 September 1906
AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE. LONDON, August 30. The Times, commenting on its Aus tralian correspondent's declaration that the present naval agreement re garding the Australian squadron is unpopular in the Commonwealth, states that any scheme advocated by the best local authorities if submitted to the Imperial Government would receive attentive and even sympathetic consideration. It believes there is no foundation for saying that Captain Gresswell's fcheme has been peremp torily and contemptuously rejected. The report of the committee on im perial defence, says the same journal, embodied merely a friendly opinion given solely because the Federal Gov ernment solicited it.
NEW ZEALAND'S POSITION. LONDON, August 30. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 1 September 1906
NEW ZEALAND'S POSITION. LONDON, August 30. Commenting on the budget speech of Sir J. Ward, Premier of New Zea land, the Financial Times saje that although prosperous and progressive, New Zealand moves at a rather slow pace as regards the development work the public expects, and generally the budget suggests anything but economy. The Financial News says New Zea land thrives and keeps a level head. Despite her pronounced socialistic tendencies, her policy is not incon sistent with really sound and cautious management of the colony's finances. The same journal applauds Sir J. Ward's proposals for establishing sinking funds in connection with New Zealand's loans and for the redemption of Treasury bills.
The Northern Times. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1906. THE LAND TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 1 September 1906
The I PASTORAL, MINING AND PBAELING NEWS. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER I, 1906. 1'HB LAND TAX. THE land tax proposals of the Govern ment are coming in for a deal of ad verse criticism -wherever they have been discussed, and should the measure emerge from Parliament at all, it is likely to do so in a much-amended form. One of the arguments against the measure is that the revenue ex pected to be raised by taxing land is not absolutely essential to the well- i being of the State; that a little1 judicious economy in the Public Ser- ; vice would serve the same purpose as the proposed taxation and be more palatable to the majority of the popu- I lation. Another argument against the tax is that it is purely a class one, and its incidence will largely fall on the yeoman class which this State in particular so much desires. Putting aside the first of these two objections to Mr. Moore's proposals, the second one gives ample scope for reflection. The singling out of owners or lessees of land for taxati...

MINING AT BANGEMALLI INSPECTION OF FIELD BY GOVERNMENT MINERALOGIST ADVOCATED. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 1 September 1906
MINING AT BANGEMALLI INSPECTION OF FIELD BY GOVEBN MENT MINERALOGIST ADVOCATED. A correspondent writes " A man who has just come from Bangemall reports that within the last week or two a- man named McGee has obtained a 12 oz. sing, besides several ouncas of-finer .gold. I have also heard that Peter GooSbody and mate sent away 6 ozs., amongst whi'-.h was a piece 25 dwts. in weight, which they obtained in a gully known as the prospectors', at Bang em all. Surely this, with what I reported some time ago, ought to be sufficient to in duce the Mines Department to get a geologist's report oh this field and the district generally. There is a highly mineralised belt of conntry. extending from Peak Hill in the S.BL. to the Aehburton in the N.W. This belt is known to contain gold, Gilver, and copper, anil yet I don't believe the Sliues 'Department have ever tried to find out- anjfht: about the value of either.

CANADA AGGRIEVED. LONDON, August 25. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 1 September 1906
CANADA AGGRIEVED. LONDON, August 25. Canadian newspapers complain that the Imperial Government is seeking to settle at Washington outstanding grievances between Canada and the United States regardless of Canadian interests. Such a policy, they declare, is disloyal to Canada. According to the same jonruals an emergency meet ing of the Canadian Cabinet is to be held next week to consider the situa tion arising out of the pressure Eng land is bringing to bear on the Dominion to settle the disputes. Mr. W. Mortimer Clarke, Lieu tenant-Governor of the province of Ontario, states that he recently visited England and was impressed by the inexcusable ignorance and apathy prevalent regarding Canadian affairs and colonists. England, he declares, ought to 8tart a campaign to teach the English imperialism other than by inserting on the annual estimates the item " Congo Free State, £12,000."
