NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mail — 18 May 1912

. .' 'NORTHERN TERRITORY. Representative Foster's glowing impres sions of the Northern Territory might stir the Australian pulse but that gol den eloquence has oft been vainly lav ished upon the theme. Still the Com monwealth Government is expected to do something — something sensational, something just now. There is a danger that it will begin at the wrong end of the Territory. Analogy of military strat egy and pioneering development indicates that the one safe course in mastering new territory is to start from a base of trust worthy communication. From the known to the unknown, from settlement to con quest—that is the natural, evolutionary, and prudential order. In this connection the Northern Territory should be de veloped from the assured south rather than from the uncertain north. Extend the railway from Oodnadatta to MacDon nel Ranges forthwith, and commence the experiments in wheatgrowing. This pol icy would give an immediate return,' an impetus to extended settlement and gen...
