Judge Slowly. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 30 January 1903

Jtitlge Slowly. It is not always an easy matter to jiulge correctly of the quality of things. Less than one in a thousand of us is capable of accurately estimating the worth of a picture ; not inure than 0110 in a hundred the quality of a horse. I11 genera!, judgments rapidly made are of small value. '? Did you ever notice,' recently inquired a -visitor to an English University town of his companion, as they sat together on a verandah, ' that queer-looking old fellow with the idiotic face, tnrned-up coat collar, and boots seven sizes too large, who passes here every morn- j ing at eleven V' 'Many a time,' replied the other. ?' He is Professor of Comparative Grammar to the University of ? , and speaks fourteen modern languages, to say nothing of his mastery of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew.' The incident will serve to show the futility of superficial judi;inont. Many judgments which pass unchallenged are none the less deplorably wrong, more especially in. matters which require a practical...

Which is the Right Woman? [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 30 January 1903

Which is tloc fi£i£ht Woinasa f A petition, which revives interest in the shocking tragedy at Ginnenderra some months ago, when a young man named Hecps was shot dead by a policeman in mistake for the murderer of Constable Guilfoyle, has been signed at Albuiy and Wodonga, and forwarded to the State Premier. It disclose.-; a strange conflict* of testi mony as to the identity of Heeps' re latives. Mrs. Heeps is a resident of the border, and alleges that a woman claiming deceased as her son, and who she asserts has been the recipient of compensation, has no proper claim. It is stated that the only compensation Mrs. Heeps received was a sum of £25, which she got from Inspector General Eosbery in October. The son, it is said, was of considerable help to his mother, who is a widow iu destitute circumstances, suffering from paralysis, and unable to earn her living. At the time deceased was shot he was arranging to take up his residence with her. The other woman, who was put forward as the s...

Tcfiiimoiiials. rTii' iife of a Prime Minister is not m!1 i it /r and skittles. In a mood of frit- dly enthusiasm, generated by a gr|,/d cigar, Sir Edmund Barton iu f'.rmed a tobacconist that his wares .vere excellent. It. seems a simple thine to do : but the enterprising; tradesman, alter the manner of his kind, made capital out of the Premier's good opinion, and bruited it abroad as a testimonial to his cigars. In conse quence, a London paper avers that jjcujiiu iiru uuhiv, Miurriui rt— marks over Sir Edmnnd's action, and desire to know how much the lion, gentleman ' got out of it.' This is one of the little disadvantages of a prominent position. No one for a moment supposes that the Premier 'got' anything out of it, or that, the so-called testimonial was prompted by anything more than good natiire. Sir Edmund is always anxious to please, aud on Mich trifles as tariffs or cigars, is willing — nay, eager — to promise whatever he thinks his audience would prefer. .After all, promise...

The Police and Criminals. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 30 January 1903

'Flic Police ami Criminals. It is satisfactory from a criminal in vestigator's point of view that there is a probability of the murderer of Con stable Long, at. Auburn, being brought to justice; but even if the crime is sheeted home to the actual perpetrator, that will not return the life which was so foully taken. By referring to the case, we do not desire in any way to prejudice the public against the men now in custody on a very serious charge ; it will be for the courts to sift the evidence, and mayhap the men charged are not guilty. The murder some time ago of Constable Guilfoyle lias not yet been cleared up to the satisfaction of the public, although it is claimed by the police that a man who was shot in Victoria was the murderer. The growth of serious crime in the Australian States has oc casional checks, but nevertheless con tinues to, expand, and ;this to a certain extent through the police being re quired to carry out so many duties that have nothing to do with the bringin...

The Commis sioners, in order to find out exactly what the people required, agreed to send Mr. Usher, Inspector, up to enquire into the matter. This gentleman arrived on Wednesday evening, and on Thursday morning was taken out to the site by the Mayor, when a good number of townspeople were present. The Mayor (Ald. J: B.

The Commis sioners, he said, had met the wishes of tho people so far as sending an experi enced officer to enquire into the matter, who would explain everything in con nection with the station building.

Two Aspects. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 3 February 1903

Two Aspects. I An ordinance- promulgated at. Pre toria forbids for two years the slaugh ter for sale of any cow, heifer, or calf in the Transvaal. The object of this sweeping prohibition is, of course, to prevent any further reduction of 'the breeding stock in the country. But it will have other effect:!. For two years the eolonv will have to denend 011 eold storage, when it can. get It, 'and at the end of two years, if the order is re scinded, there will 110 butchers left. Cold storage, which is a power at the Cape, will have ' frozen theai out,' and the meat trade of the towns will be at its mercy. The order is a hard ship in' any ease. But it is a great mistake to give it so permanent, a form at the start. It could easily be extended- from time to time, if neces sary, without, providing just the se curity of tenure essential io the forma tion of a first-class monopoly. — ' Morniug Leader.'
