The Premier .has given notice of his in tention to introduce a Bill entitled "A Bill for an Act to provide for the pay ment of certain statutory fees of office to the consolidated revenue fund." This innocent title conceals a some what important principle. The mea sure, in fact, is designed to make it possible for the Attorney-General to hold office in an honorary capacity. At the present time the Attorney General nnder the old statute receives certain fees as a perquisite for him self, which makes the office of Attor ney-General one of profit nnder the Crown, and therefore the gentleman accepting such office has to submit himself to his constituents. In the event of the passage through Parlia ment of the Bill of which the Premier has given notice, Mr. Moss will be enabled to take -the position of Attor ney-General without going before the e...

The Northern Times. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1905. THE STAMP ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 2 December 1905
The PASTORAL, MINING AND PJEAEXING NEWS. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1905. THE STAMP ACT. IN this issue appears a telegram, from Perth conveying the intelligence that on and after January 1 next bills of exchange and promissory notes, except foreign ones or those payable on de mand, will require to have the stamp duty impressed on them. At first sight this new regulation may appear merely one of interest to the manu facturers of the printed forms gener ally used for bills or promissory notes. On closer investigation, however, it will be found to inconvenience bus iness* people who use documents of this description and especially those who reside outside the capital and large cities ; and for this reason, that no person outside a bank or other similarly large financial institution will feel inclined to stock the stamped forms required. Cheque books, on which the stamp duty is also impressed, are on a different footing. In their case the duty is one penny, but with promissory notes and bill...

FOREIGN RELATIONS. LONDON, November 2-6. | Lord Rosebery, speaking last night at Falmontb, adhered to hie previous views on the Anglo-French agreement and with regard to Morocco.

If he had any predisposition towards any other conn try it was towards France. Lord Rosebery's references to Ger many have bitterly disappointed the Berlin newspapers.

CORRESPONDENCE. THE UPPER GASCOYNE ROADS BOABD. To THE EDITOR. Sir,-May I crave cpace in your valuable paper to bring before the notice of (be authorities the absolnte necessity of dis solving the Upper Gascoyne Boada Board and of creating a new board in lien thereof. It is impossible and impracticable foi the work to be carried on satisfactorily. It is acknowledged by the present members of the board that they cannot do justice to this district in its entirety. We will take just one instance: If a meeting is con vened it is held on the Murchison River, at either Hilly Hilly or Beeringarra stations, according to proposition, and a notice is issued summoning a member from the Gascoyne (shonld there be one) to travel a distance of 400 miles there and back to at tend. It is ont of all reason to expect the members of the Upper Gascoyne Boads Board, who all reside on or about the Mur chison, to hold their meetings on the Gas coyne, because they probably have not the time, meanB, or incli...
