INSIDE THE LINES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 28 September 1894
INSIDE THE lINES. ' Nobody knew just why a fort had been put in that place. There was no chance for fighting anything except motqani·oes, yet there wvas a loung line of fortifications, and an enfilade of.pickets guardea the little town from which all the men had gonie away. If beauty of location had been a mili. alry requisite, the fort was certainly aell planted. The earthworks ran nea"r the edge of a high bluff, which rose a most perpendicularly from the strip of land bordering the brown river at its foot. On the other side Louisiana stretched away tothe horizon line, level and green as a garden, and in the dis tance a bit of lake often caught some of the blueness of the sky and shone the gem of all this fair setting. The boy who was lying on the edge of the bluff had no eyes for the distant view. Through an opening in the trees clinging to the sides of the hill he was gazing at the antics of a party of boys far below him. Close under the bluff lay a white, many pillared house, an...

Democracy. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 28 September 1894
D~nocracy. By H. McKE?LA.. What is democracy I It is a compound that defies analysts, all that we can do is to generalize when we speak about it, to anlyse it is beyond the power of man, because it embraces all the wording of the human mind in relation to huma" govern. meat and, at the same time, it implies the poasibliThy of all these in reali?ation. This, therefore, leads us to a definition. Democracy is a form of government in which the sovereign power is lodged in the whole ueople. I think this definition will be accepted by all tino modern democrats? The next thing we have to examine is to see in what this will! result. 'The value of a thing ought to be estimated by ite results. Now, what are the results of pure or vcen partial demoeracjy ? In stability, and the parer the democracy the more the !nstabiliy., And why this instability? Because the masses are always wrong. Tbhey are uneducateade, and are therefore gove:ned by passion and prejudice, and hence the basis of diemocracy...
