The Storyteller. The House on the Sunless Side. CHAPTER VII.—CONTINUED. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 9 February 1904
The Storyteller. - 'te iRou e ol the ur1leyO side. CHAPTER VII.-CONTUnIRD. While this conversation was going on Barbara was perforuming the hopeless task of trying to extract something more than monosyllables f.om the terrible Ruby, who, sitting up stiffly on her chair like a Sunday school scholar under examination, valiantly resisted every effort to 'draw her cut 'beyond the safe precincts of ' Yes' and ' No.' So it happened that Barbara, in the distracting intervals of making conversation, caught more of the talk l:etween the elder ladies than was intended for her ears. Itmaddened her to the point of indiscretion to see the interplorer metnphorically patted on the back in this way. ' It's rather hard upon Ella, dont you think ?' she burst out at last in a high, 'rather tremulous voice. Lady Stephana instantly looked prim. ' People must be prepared for sorrow and disappointment in this world,' she said sententiously ;' and-well, really, without being unkind, one must . admit that. ...

Holding Back for War Prices. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 12 February 1904
Iolding ltck for War Prices. TIlE Railway Commissioners are somewhat disappointed at the slackness of the wheat traffic. There is a large quantity of grain inland, they.say, awaiting removal, and they made arrangements in anticipation of a rush, The rush, however, did not come up to ex peotations,, auid last week consequently engines that had been sent into the wheat districts were standing idle, and men only partially employed.. The'fear is that on any indication of an -improved market there will be a great rush, and that everyone will want his wheat removed at the same time. This would cause a glut, and unreasonable comrn plaints of the unreudiness of the department would follow. The shipment of wheat from Darling Harbour is backward. Although over a million bags have been received, less than half that amount has been shipped. The big shed that was erected to provide largely for emergencies is nearly filled witl grain, When the- expected -rush comee, consequently, it will not give...

Closer Settlement. SosME surprise has been felt that the Govern. xenthasnot proceeded with the appoint ment of the Royal Commission to deal with the question of closer settlement. The Ratter had gone so far that a nupber of names of gentlemen who would constitute the ornm mission were officially sapplied. The lilt was a formidable one, and out of allpropor. tion to the necissities of the case ; while no reason could. be given for over-loading the proposed commission in that way. It was further stated that the Minister was beset with applications from members of Parlia ment and others who were desirous of assis ting in the matter.

A IMEETING is convened for to.morrow night in the Council Obambers to consider the question of the redistribution of.the elector. ates of this State, so that suggestions may be made to the Commission at present sitting on this all-important question. The Com "missioners are agreeable to receive and give careful consideration to any suggPstions made, and it is, needless to say, a matter of very considerable snoment to the eleotors that their views regarding the divisional boundaries should be submitted from all centres throughout the State, -It is surmised that if action be nob taken in time which may be information in itself to the Commis sioners, that Bombala will be annexed to Cooma and Queanboeyan to Braidwood, which would make matters very complicated indeed. The primary consideration in the redistribution of the electorates, apart from that of population, is to add to the present electorates (not struck off the electoral map entirely) only that country,...

The causes lie deep in the permanent interests-itf not the necessities of the two powers. Modern war is so dreadful an incident, and is charged. with such dreadful possibilities, that responsible statesmen on bothpsides it may readily: be believed, shrink from it.
