The Western Argus. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, MAR. 12TH, 1896. [Newspaper Article] — Kalgoorlie Western Argus — 12 March 1896
PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY. THURSDAY, MAR. 12TH, 1896. Ix effecting the dismissalof MrrVenn from the Cabinet, the Premier has unquestion ably adopted a very t xtreme course. It is probably aii exaggeration to say that such a proceeding is unparalleled in the history of Australia, but it is at any rate an exceedingly rare occurrence for a member of a Government to be sum marily ejected. The Ministers are few and far between who care to adopt the unusual policy of refusing to resign even after the majority of their colleagues have requested theim to do so, and con sequently the necessity very seldom arises for such strong measures as those that have just been taken by Sir John Forrest. There is nothing unconsti tutional in what has been done, and the Premier under the circumstances had no other alternative. The Commis sioner of Railways could not reasonably expect to be retained in the Cabinet after accusing the Premier of being practically th'e cause of the railway block that lately ar...

Zollner, was present at a performance which was given in the building. During an interval in the performance they proceeded along the side of the premises, and, as the night was very dark, they had some difficulty in picking their way.
