HOW DID THE THIEF GET IN? [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 10 April 1897
HfW DID THE THIEF GET IN? Yo* wake np Borne morning and miss your watch, your parse, your best clothes and other valuables. Yet neither you nor any other member of your family heard a sound during the night. Neither is there a sign of how the thief got into the house nor by what road he decamped. You rush round and tell the police and also decide to keep a dog and a shot gun. You will let thieves know they musn't come fooling around your premises after this. A sensible procedure. Meanwhile your watch, your money, &c, are gone. Quite so Now suppose I should tell you that the thief who stole y->ur property never entered your house at all ; that he was boru in it ; had lived twenty years in it ; never had been out of it till he went off with your things albeit not a soul of von had ever seen or h-iard of him. What would you say to me F You would call me an idiot and threaten to have me sent back to the asylum. But don't be too sure. " Later on," says Mr. Heakin, "rheumatism ...
THE ROADS AND BRIDGES MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 10 April 1897
THE ROADS AND BRIDGES MEMBERS. It wi'l be recollected (says tbs Mining Journal) that some time back the Premier wrote a half-cajoling, half-threatening letter to the electors of Toodyay, telling them how much better off they would find themselves if they returned Mr. Clarkson, the sitting member, instead of any other candidate that might ask for their votes. Mr. Clarkson spoke for himself on Saturday, and he worked this special and particnlar bribery dodge for all it was worth. He said : " Among the public buildings and works which he had obtained for Toodyay were : Police quarters at Newcastle, £1.000 ; court house, £2,200 ; post office, £1,300 ; agricul tural and athletic societies, £500 ; railway station, £800 ; new bridge, £2,000 ; hospital, £2,000 ; Wongamine hail, £250 ; Mombekine hail, £250 ; Goomalling hall, £250-making a total expenditure of £10.550."

The Advertiser. SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 10 April 1897
®|&lt; fertiger SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1897. THE statement made by the Herald with regard to the intentions of the Qovern ineat as to the tariff will sur prise most people bat not those who have followed the tactics of the Premier in the past. Sir John Forrest will not hold fast to any policy which is finally proved to him to be decidedly against public opinion or which is shown him to be wrong. On nearly every important subject he has at first presented a- hos tile front and then has given way. He did this with regard to the franchise and then with regard to the redistribution of seats, and also with regard to the Edu cation Question. His apparent weakT ness is his real source of strength. If he bad not time and again bowed to public opinion, he would have lost power long ago. The public now know that if they agitate with vigour and make out a good case, the Premier will not with, stand their demands. In that respect i he is an exponent of popular govern ment. The only matter ...

OUR OPEN COLUMN NATIONALISATION OF THE LAND. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 10 April 1897
OUR OPEN COLUMN NATIONALISATION OF THE LAND. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,-In reference to a letter of Mr. Bidoat's in yonr coi rans of the 6th, I am snre the general ideas contained therein will meet with the hearty approval of all pro gressive parlies. In sympathy with many others I don't t3lieve in a " Progressive" Land Tax, and I am afraid Mr. Bidout lays too mach stress on the Absentee Tax, appa rently considering it necesiary to find the absentee owner in order to tax him. All land, agricultural, urban, or snrburban, shouli lt 2 held in mach the same manner as a gold claim. If yon don't use it and work it let the next man bave a try. Tax the fall unimproved value of the laud and tax nothing else, and then there won't be much trouble in finding the useless aHentee owner. No one will consider it worth while looking for him. Then instead-of having hundreds of idle acres between each house in the suburb; closer settlement would be possible and kerosene tin humpies would not ari e alongside ...
