PAYMENT OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

PAYMENT OK MEMBERS. IK referring to some old files of Hansard for 1882, last week, we came across a speech by the lat<' Mr. Jacob Low, the taciturn member for the Warrogo. On this occasion he made a speech, which was almost prophetic in charac ter :-.' It is not working men who will seek seats in this Bouse, but stump orators, and we have too many of them already in the streets."

The Mestern Champion. Vita sine Uteris mors est. BARCALDINE. TUESDAY,MARCH 15,1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

|hc Jptcrit Ihaiupioit. Vita sine Uteris mors est. BARCALDINE. TUESDA^MARClTiMii? AMOSG other measures which the Government announce they intend to bring before Parliament on the 29th March is one for building railways on the Land Grant System. No particu lars are given of the method in which it is proposed to conduct this delicate matter of policy, but we presume it will not be on the same lines as those submitted to the country ten years ago by SrE THOMAS M'ILAVHIITH. The Labor Party have already con demned the policy before they have heard anything about the proposals. Very few of them were in the country when the Transcontinental Railway scheme was first brought under tho notice of Parliament. It is certain that neither ME. GLASSEY nor ME. CASEY, nor oven the newly-elected member for the Barcoo were colonists of Queensland when tho whole ques tion was before the country, and it is equally certain they have no personal knowledge of what happened at that time. They do not know why...

Round Camp Fire [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

A fike patch of molga formed the camping place on the evening of which ire now write. The company were reclining as nsnal enjoy ing an after tea smoke; very few were inclined for yarning, and each one declined j to relate an experience feeling " too darned lazy," as " the Doctor'' expressed it. At last Milligan came to the rescue, and said he would tell them a story he had read in a Queensland paper the other day, Tim promis ing the next pitch. After a pull or two at the cutty the boss started what he called THE STORY OF THBEE PHOTOS. Nobby Burgate was an all-round specula tor, and his particular weakness was dia monds. By many people he was thought to be Beaney's rival in the diamond exhibition line; but I think he hardly equalled that august personage. One of the gems of his collection was a diamond ring. The single stone cost him £1000, end the setting, &c., another trifle. It was a superb stone, superbly set. This ring caneed him more trouble than his non-dividend paying...

SOME Newcastle small tradesmen bave just been fined 25s. each and costs nnder the Towns Police Act for the hideottB offence of selling a glass of milk on Sunday. That a law which makes it a crime for an honest man who has sixpence in his pocket to buy a glass of milk ana a bunch of grapes for him self and bis child, should be still extant, is surprising ; that 50 per cent of the clergy shonld support it only shows what a set of cantankerous idiots have forced their services on the Almighty.

SPORTING. [BY EABLY BIRD.] [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

[BR EABLY BIBS.] A-utt uu on meeting uie nominations xor tne Handicaps to be run at Barcaldine on the 18th. instant, are very satisfactory, and as nearly all the horses are in town or expected the acceptances should be good. The weights appear to me to be fairly adjusted, and the betting on the "double" is consequently pretty brisk. J For the St. Patrick's Day Handicap, Mark ?Tapley and Mariner are most fancied, and for th6 Flying, Hobart and The Serf. The first Handicap run i* the Shorts of six furlongs; Mark Tapley heads the list with 9st. 31b. This is a dangerous horse for what ever he goes for, but I fancy he will be re served for the big money. Hobart with 9st. - lb. should run well if this is his journey. The Serf I know little about cxcept by reputation. He is said to be very fast and is not overweighted. I have no fancy for Arthur or Lifeguard, and Pluto I expect will »or Uie big money. King is a horse 1 like very much for this race, and whatever beats him will win. Exile wi...

NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND, Sunday. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND, Sunday. The steamer Elginshire is still aground. The wool and preserved meats have been discharged, bat tbe frozen meat will be jet tisoned. A LITTLE over a hundred years ago-that is to say, in the year 1788-the then reigning Sultan of Morocco took as a wife a red-haired and bine-eyed Irish girl, tbe young widow of a sergeant of Engineers who had died in Morocco. This Celtic lady seems to have left a famous record behind her. She not only ruled the Saltan's harem, but the Sultan himself, and not infrequently rode into town at the head of her husband's troops. Her son, known as Mulai Yezzi, inherited much of her pluck and spirit, and was in open rebellion at the time of his father's death. It is a very open question bow much of the blood of this Irish lassie runs in the veins of the present Sultan of Morocco, Muley el-Hassan ; bnt it is at least Interesting to assume that the known partiality of this blood-thirsty ruler for the British nation is due to the roma...

What People Say. A.J. SCOTT. ESQ., LAUNCESTON, TASMANIA, WHITES from Daily Telegraph office :-" In justice, and in the interests of similar sufferers, I write this in the hope thnt many in trouble may be induced to try Clements'Tonic, and also that the sale of such a genuine article may be increased.

One-Man-One-Vote. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 15 March 1892

One-Man-Oae-Vote. THE position to which the One-man-one vote proposal lias sunk iu Victoria is indi cated by the way it is now written of by the Aye. hitherto its strong supporter. In our contemporary's is6ue ou Monday we read : The most formidable weapon in the hands of the Conservatives is (be One-man One-vote Bill. With it they have succeeded in creat ing a serious schism in the Liberal party by rousing the fears and suspicions of the farmers, and practically resolving the general election into a contest between them and the extremists of the Trades Hall. If Mr. Shiels had only let it be known what he meant to do with the objectionable thing-whether he intends to put it at the top of his pro gramme or at the bottom, or drop it al together-this impending disaster to the party on whose votes he relies might have been avoided. We can quite understand his reluctance to speak on the subject before he is obliged to. If lie i6 consistent, there is only one course open to him-namoly, to ...
