Here and There. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 19 December 1900
Here and There. . Air Homo, as in England to day, there was a strict observance, of justice between citizens coupled with a want of respect burdering on contempt for the rights of other peoples. On the vart of Rome there was a fixed resolve to dominate the known world by l.s land army ; on the part of our frienos •who sing "Rule. Britannia, it la^an equally settled maxim..that they shall rule .the world.by their fleet. The lust ©£-wealth:.drew towards Rome all the aold'ofifche universe to allow—even m the'days of the rcpubliG—the piirvenu Croesus to amass a capital of 85,000,000 francs, Lucullus id give diBAets costing 400,000 francs, and a Roman Emperor to spend 600,000 francs on roses. In England we behold the unbounded luxury of the " upper ten thousand," we see the Beits, the De Beers, and the Rhodeses amassing incalculable fortunes, and a Minister of the Crown paying, insane prices for his orchids. In England ■ the .law .looks upon every one over tlio age o£ seven as a responsi...

Quid Pro Quo. [Newspaper Article] — The Wyalong Advocate and Mining, Agricultural and Pastoral Gazette — 19 December 1900
Quid Pro Quo An exchange gives the following inceresiing argument which took place in a 'bus in a prosperous western town not very long ago. It shows there are some newspaper men who will not suffer to be trampled upon by men who think tliej' own the universe.— Perhaps the same could be applied to our own little town :— Lawyer : We have a rag of a paper here called the "Gold-town Clarion ette." It was supposed to be running for my interest, but ifc published a very uncomplimentary remark made about me by old Cauliflower at the last meeting of the Caterpillar Des truction Society. But the editor was either too lazy or had nob the business tack to leave my name out, and d n me if it will do him any good.
