POET'S CORNER. STEADFAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 9 January 1903

POET'S OOKNEIt. ? ......... ? U*i«. STEADFAST. Tiiry say that Jack is very poor, That I might bettor wed, That I- have charms and status which Might marry wealth instead : But ah ! the world without forgets That I've a world within, A heart where love must have a place Which love alone must win. Why should I starve my soul and leave My worthier self to die, Or only trend those desert ways Where love's dead ashes lie ! I've lived, and, living, I will love ; And, loving, I'll inspire ; I'll show that woman's heart can light In mail a living tire. To my Jack I'll aye he true, Though poor he now may be ; For a strong heart und will like his Must win prosperity. It take* a man to steer life's craft, Unaided and alone, But weaklings born to wealth arid ease Oft weep o'er riches gone. I may have beauty, but I'm not A human butterfly, Nor a frail uioth which plays at eve The burning candle ni-jh. One' thing I glory in — 'tis this, ? ' That I'm my Jack's chief pride, Waiting in steadfast tru...

Germany and the Monroe Doctrine. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 9 January 1903

iftermaiiy atul tlic Jlonrne Doctrine. The situation of the United States navy at the' present time is such as well deserves consideration (says the 'Army and Navy Gazette'). It must, be regarded in its relation to the strong spirit of 'Imperialism' which is now so loudly expressed beyond the Atlantic, and to the insistence with ?which the Monroe doctrine is pro claimed by President Roosevelt. The force now consists of three cruisers and a gunboat, and the commodore is to be succeeded by a rear-admiral. The 'Army and Navy Journal' de scribes the squadron as a visible re presentative of aggressive ideas and . purposes, and says that its presence cannot be ignored. Germany is mak ing vast strides in South America, ?where her cognising enterpiise has. proved successful, and she has de veloped very large trade interests in Brazil, Venezuela, Columbia, and other South American Republics. In Rio Grande do Sul, the southermost State of Brazil, she has established a colony of more than 200,...

The "Blane Mange Ministry." [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 9 January 1903

The 'Bhtiic Mange Ministry.' Sn: John Skb was recently indulging in a cheap and childish sneer at the expense of the paper that is most prominent in the Reform movement. A Reformer who overheard him re marked : ' Well, anyhow, it's straight talk makes the Ministry feel like blanc mange ! Ministers shiver when they are compelled fo contemplate the 'gathering wave of Reform that must ere long overwhelm them. Naturally they don't feel kindly disposed to wards those responsible for tbe wave.' The ' Blanc Mange Ministry ' would be a good uame for it. Certainly, it is as spineless as a blanc mange, as witness the latest mean whine: 'It wasn't the Government that forced the Railway Commissioners to in crease the wages list by £60,000 — it was the Parliament !' Let it go down in history as the ' Blanc Mange Ministry.' — ' Arrow.'
