Election of Mayor. The municipal laws of Now South Wales ro quiro amending in many directions, but in none does there appear to bo groator nood for altera tion than in tho systoni of oloctiug the Mayor. On the face of it, tho present system, appears an excellent one. It seems proper that a body of bix or more men — presumably among tho most intelligent in tho town — wno aro olectoa by tno ' ratepayers to administer its municipal aflaire, should chose their chairman and executive ofh'cor.

Headington Hill Estate. The Government and the country have every reason to feel satisfiad with the results which have thus far attended tho throwing open of the Headington Hill lands to close settlement. Tuesday was the opening day, and the throwing open, of the Land office doors at 10 o'clock was followed by a scone such as had nevar before been witnessed in the district.

Hoodlum. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
Hoodlum. OuTiiiSiin Francisco 25 years ago there was a notorious character named Muldoon, who was the leader of n gang of young ruflians. They were a terror to the community, and about as tough a lot of citizens as you can find on the coast. A reporter who had been assigned to write a story in which they figured undertook to coin a word designating tho gang. He reversed the name of the leader, and referred to them as 'noodlums,' The compositor mistook the 'n' for an 'h' and aa hoodlums the word passed cha proofreader. And now 'hoodlums' is a recog nised word, and will probably survive.

The Prospects of War. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
The Prospects of War, In tho event of a clash of arms between England and the allied Powers the position of Australia would bo particularly unpleasant. Being a portion of tho British Empire tho first inoon vonienco put upon uo would bo the cutting of thfi nablo and our isolation for weeks at a lima from tho rest of the world. The enemies of England would bavo difficulty in disrupting communication. Such an indignity would not, of course, bo offered America being a noutral nation. Our last sources of information under the circumstances would bo through the medium of the Frisco mail boats. But theso would bo a sorry substitute for the electric cable. To re main for weeks without prompt information from the seat of war is an intolerable contin gency, yet in the event of a struggle such as threatens tho inconvenience would be inevit able. Another source of anxiety would be tho removal from our shores to the scone of action of our auxiliary squadron. But no patriotic British subject coul...
