The federation farce proceedeth merrily in Melbourne. When not engaged in debating the possession of streams and lagoons, the Conference gets hopelessly tangled in schemes of finance, standing armies, railway ; gauges, and such like questions, which are about five years ahead of tho first steps of federation. There is just now a wild whoop for the federation of the Australian colonies for defence purposes- — made chiefly on ac count of some, ferocious' Germans; and hairy Russians pulling the Mongolian's pigtail,, and '/talking back' to dear old England in a rather contemptuous man ner. This ' standing army ' proposal I is one of those things electors must strongly object to. ' We believe the time i has gone by when civiliscd men will fly at each other's throats, at the instigation of brainless monarchs or idiotic states men who fancy that something which they call ' the country's interests' fs at stake'. We believe we have seen the last great European war. Notwithstanding the frenzi...
FOR "THE BEACON." [Newspaper Article] — The Raleigh Sun — 18 February 1898
FOR ' THE BEACON.-'' TffE galled jade winced. In the last issue of the North Coast Beacon, appears- what is alleged to be a reply to our article of the pre vious week on ragged journalism. If a hash of bad English a.ud gutter-snipe expressions can be const rued into a reply, I he Beacon's effort is brilliant. We know it- is exceedingly hard to disseat- anything from its lifelong environments, therefore we leave the Ueacon in full enjoyment' and inalienable possession of its Billingsgate. There is only one thing v.'e'woulddike to point out, and that is: The Raleigh Sun may be an excellent- thing to ' block chinks' in a fowl roost' (house, we presume) but we doubt if The Sun. or even a legion of devils, would save a hen-roost if the Beacon was knocking round thirsting for poultry. A^e did not state that the Beacon was 'conducted by a bullock-puncher, or an unordained microbe,' or that the said con ductor ' had not sufficient ability to drive ducks to water.' But the enp evidently fitt...
