GET COUNCILLORS WHO OBEY BYLAWS (To the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 24 June 1927
GET COUNCILLORS WHO OBEY BYLAWS (To the Editor) The Standard of J.une 21st s ayr: "It is surety advisable, too.

THE MASKEE [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 24 June 1927
THE MASKEE The following characteristic para- graph is from the last issue of the Standard: "The auxiliary ketch ''Maskee" purchased by the mal-administrative (dis-service of the Northern Territory some time ago, allegedly for £1,200, dragged her anchor to-day and, got on the rocks near Fort Hill. The amountt of damage is not known." There is no truth whatever in the statement. As a matter oC fact, the Maskee on Wednesday was well out at sea with passengers . and cargo for the lighthouses. We do not know what the Government paid for this boat, but they certainly made a good bar- gain, for, as everyone knows, the Maskee is one of the most reliable boats known in these waters foi many years past. She gets there, everytime, without fail, a.nd while such a boat ia controlled by the Government there is not much dancer of the lighthouse people starving for supplies. ,
