RABBIT TRAPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 13 May 1904
RABBIT TRAPPING. AT the meeting of the P. P. Board at Braidwood last week, the tone of the mem bers showed that they had but little sym f`athy with trapping as a menus of eradicat ing the rabbit pest. It was shewn that holdings must be allowed to become abso lutely over run with rabbits beforo it pays trappers to commence operatiuns. It is easily seen that the land holder would not occupy an enviable position. Thus the edict of the Board was that bunny is to be given no quarter, in fact the battle cry of property owners against the pest is extermination by poison.

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. TO I1E EDITOR. SIs,--Rumour sayeth that yesterday a sort of caucus meeting was held in the private room at the rear of a local hotel. The meeting consisted of about eight or nine gentlemen, mostly large landholders, and they proceeded to nppoint one of their number as the " alleged" representative of the farmerb and settlers of this district. Report says that the mueting of nine was pretty evenly divided-and if this was so then the gentleman selected represents four or five votes at most, his own included. As the question to be debated at the Local Go vernment Convention is of vital importance to every man, woman, and child in the State, it does seem to me, and to many others, ...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 13 May 1904
LOCAL GOVERNMENT. MArY of the country municipalities are treating the Local Government proposal in a very off-handed way. The following is an example of the manner in which the proposal is held:-The Camden Council passed the following resolution : " That inasmuch as the present Parliament is practically moribund, and as a general election is now imminent, this counoil is of opinion that the proposed convention to consider local government is at this juncture inopportune, and that the convention should be postponed until the new Parliament has been elected. Further, this council is of opinion that if this coarse is followed nohconvention cannot thea be challenged as an electioneering device."

MR. AUSTIN. OHIAP-fAN AT BRAIDWOOD. MR. AUSTIN CAP(Mr, M.H.R, ex-Minister of Defence, arrived in Braidwood last` Mon day, and upon being intervied with regard to the political situation ?aid he considered a coalition was inevitable,. though between whom or when likelyto take place he pre served a discreet silence. He appeared very emphatic on one point, that it is a:matter of impossibility, for a minority o continue ruling? the majority for any length of time. When a, coalition is effected it must, he said, be on well-defined, lines, with no., secrecy~ If an agreement in black and white were placed openly before the publio they would know; what to expect, and could accord' or with hold their .support accordingly, and then members #ould be able to take sides with out any rail.sitting or back-sliding. If the coalition' was a' strong1. oie, with a good programme, acceptable "" toB the -Common wealth, it would mean settled government, and would do away with the present unrest and uncert...

Mr. J6hnson listened so quietly, pulling th iears of a little Skye terrier which had come from under his chair after' having had a nap on the floor, that it was plain that all these arguments had presented themselves to his mind already-in fact, when she ended, he merely nodded. Lucette watched him a moment, and then bounced off her chair. 'Do vat you p'ease, den I' she said hastily. 'I shall not wait here for to be persecuted -I shall go away !

STATE LABOR PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 13 May 1904
STATE LABOR PARTY. THfloampaign on behalf of the State labor party was opened in the Redf rn Town-hall last Tuesday night by Mr. M'Gowen, M,L.A. The ohirman (Mr. Riley, president of the Political Labor League) said that the party aspired next election to seize the reins of office in tbe next Parliament. Mr. M'Gowen apparently, did not share this sanguine hope because he talked of some persons as some " who will be in Mr. Carrnthers' Ministry," and he incidentally declared that the labor party would be found in opposition to Mr. Carruthers' Government. He eindicatedalso that they were able to keep any government from the charge of gross extravagance, and, with regard to the Friedman case, said it was befouling the foundation of Justice to say that the prisoner's wealth secured his liberation. Figures were quoted extensively to show that the Arbitration Act was not exercising a baneful effeot in soaring capital out of the State.

Pastures Protection Board. A srPCIAL meeting of the Qtoanbeyan Pas. tures Protection Board was held at the Court House yesterday m arning to consider the request made by a meeting recently held in Council Chambers, tsat the Board recognise trapping among the methods adopted for the destruction of rabbits, and not to insist upon landholders using poison. There were present :-Messrs. W. F. Rut ledge (Cha;rman), J. M. McIntosh, R. Moore, J. McCarthy, N. Powell, C. 1H. Mo Keabnie and the inspector and secretary. A letter was read from the Mayor of the municipality, stating that it was the opinion of the meeting mentioned that the poison used for the destruction of rabbits was baneful to the turkey and pig industri-es, and that inasmuch as the insect pest was rapidly increasing through the destruction of native birds the ill-effects were greater than the remedy aimed at. A further ap. peal, in the interest of trappers, was made to the Board, for which a favourable con sideration was soug...

ADDRESS BY MR. O'SULLIVAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 13 May 1904
ADDRESS BY MR. O'SUTJLLT VAN. TLar Masonio Hall in Sydney on Monday night proved unable to aooomodate all who desired to hear Mr. O'Sullivan's address on " Democracy versus Toryism." The minister for works had a cordial reception, and the meeting was throughout attentive and order ly. Mr. O'Sullivan said that democracy meant the rule of the whole people-not of one section of it Toryism signified the rule of the few and generally of the selfish and interested few; indeed, the term democracy bore the sam~ interprt'tation as the term aristrooacy. Hle ulaimed that throughout his five years' service as minister for works his policy and that of the government with which he was associated had been based on the principles of true democracy. The forth coming election was going to be one of the severest experienced by the state for many a long day. Not only were the powerful newspapers and vested interests behind the so-called reform party, but sectarian forces were at work in a mean and cowa...

Municipal Co0unil. AT the usual fortnightly meeting of the Municipal Council, held last night, there were present: Aldermen flungerford (May or), Dixie, Collett Atkinson, McPherson, and Hinokaman. Correspundeonce was read from Mr. B. R. wise, the acting-Premier with reference to the Local Government Couvention to be opened in Sydney on the 23rd instant, and requesting that a del gate be deputed to represent the claims of this council. The major portion of the aldermen ap peared apathetic as to what course should be taken, and those who had given the matter a cursory consideration apparently viewed it as a huge joke, a dying kick of the present Government. Hoivever, after a little consideration, a motion was carried that a delegate be sent, and subsequently it was agreed upon that the Mayor undertake. that duty. The questions upon which the opinion of the Convention will be desired were next read, and between the Mayor and Alderman Dixie a little discussion took place-surely over mat...

WOMEN'S POLITICAL CLUB. YESTERDAY afternoon in the Prostestant Hal before about 40 ladies, Mr. Fred- Campbell of Yarralurnla, delivered an address on the existing relations between capital and labour. The meeting being convened under the au'spiaos of the Womon's Political Club, Mrs.. . Campbell, the President, occupied the chair. The speaker, very caustically denounced everything that had a tendency to interrupt. peace between capital and labour, and emphasised that one was related to the other in away that what benefited one would conduce to the welfare of the other. The meeting was not intended in any way to be politically partial, and much interest was'l manifested in the views b?fthe speaker by, the ladies present. At the close a vote of thanks was moved by Mrs. Stewart for the speaker and carried by aoclamation. Sub sequently a meeting of ladies was held, and a number enrolled as members of the club, which will have as its object a non-partisan political education for the ladie...

WITH WHICH ARE INOORPORATiED Queanbeyaiu Times, Bungendore Mirror & . Captain's Flat Miner. FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1904, M1Vr. Wise's Bribe. THE people of this State should regard with extreme suspicion the proposed Local Gov ornmentBill, which IMr. Wise and his friends are now dangling before them. Thei game of this government, followed by a promise to do better and mend their broken ways, has been played so many times that ib is now quite worn out. With past history to guide them, electors are not likely to fall into the Strap Mr. Wise has so ounningly baited. It is ridionuloneto suppose that a ministry, which has been guilty of so many crimes against * good government, is now, at the eleventh hour, going to renounce the errors of its ways, and give the people something really worth having. Even if the proposed Bill hit the mark it is professedly aimed at, and was suited to therequirements of both town and country, electors would do well to pause before accepting it from the Gove...

ROCKHAMPTON MURDER CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 13 May 1904
ROCKHAMPTON MURDER CASE. The Brisbane Full Court on Tuesday, de- livered judgement in the Longreach case, in which Angus M'Donald and his wife were convicted of the murder of the former's daughter, aged 14, by neglect and illtreat- ment. The chief Justice, in reviewing the evidence of ill treatment, said it revealed acts of cruelty unparalleled even in fiction. Pri- soners were both bound by law to provide medical aid and necessaries of life for the child, yet neither of them made any effort to do so. The female prisoner had been a hospital nurse, and was thus qualified spe- cially to render assistance to the sick and suffering child. Reviewing the whole facts, he could come to no other conclusion than that the conviction should be affirmed. Jus- tice Real and Chubb concurred, and Justice Power, who tried the case, was also present, and intimated at this stage that he fully con- curred in the views of the Full Court. The case has created a considerable sensation the court being crow...
