SETTLEMENT ALONG THE G. S. RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 16 March 1897
SETTLEMENT ALONG THE G. S, RAILWAY. The W.A. Land Company held possession of their territory for about ten years and for part of that time the Government did not compete with them in the sale of land along the C ¿at Southern Railway. During that long period they made sales of only about 250 farming and gardening blocke. The ef fect of the purchase of the railway and lands of the Company may be gathered from the fact that the following selections were made in the first month after the Government tonk possession : 100 blocks on conditional purchase, total acreage 27,179. 29 Free Homestead farms, total acreage 4,730. 23 pastoral leases, total acieage 107,000. lt will be observed that the average size of the conditional purchase blocke is 271 acres, of the homestead farms 161 acres and of the leases 4,652 acres. In one month the Govern ment secured half as many settlers as the Company secured in ten yeats. No better proof could be given of the wisdom of the purchase of the Company's int...

OUR OPEN COLUMN. STOWAWAYS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 16 March 1897
OUR OPEN COLUMN. STOWAWAYS. TO THE EDITOB. BIB,-Doling the past 12 months many men have been brought np at the local poliee court and charged with being stowaways on board vessels arriving from the Eastern Colo nies. In most cases the men are without means ; and, of course, are sentenced to a term of imprisonment. Now, sir, it dees not seem fair to the colony, that through neglect on the part of steamship owners, it should have to keep these men in prison, and after wards in the event of their not finding work, provide relief works for their benefit, lt would be far better, and only reasonable, if the steamship owners were compelled to take these men whence they came. And I also think it very questionable whether this court has any jurisdiction in the matter that is so far as sentencing them to imprison ment or inflicting a fine as the offence is really committed in the other colonies, when the men board the vessels for the purpose of defrauding the owners. To me it seems alto gethe...

Reports from Canea are to the effect that there has been sharp fighting on the heights.

WHY NOT LIVE A CENTURY? [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 16 March 1897
WHY NOT LIVE A CENTURY ? " In the coming time," ' said a famous English poet," " a man or woman eighty or one hundred years old will he more beautiful than the youth or maiden of twenty, as the . ripe fruit is more beautiful and fragrant than the green. These ripe men and women will hare no wrinkles on the brow, no grey hair, no bent and feeble bodies. On the contrary theywül have perfect hearing, clear eyesight, sound teeth, elastic step, and mental vigour." Does this sound absurd. and impossible ? Why should it F People over one hundred yearal'old are frequently met with in these j days, as they have been as far as human re cords go' back. A man is of no real value until he is past fifty anti galled control of his ¡ passions and acquired some practical wisdom. After that he ought to have from fifty to seventy-five working years before him. Whoso dies short of one hurdred (bir violence) dies of his own folly or that of his ancestors. Ont chief thing, however, we mist learn. What ii...
