THE WOMAN'S COLUMN. From a Woman's Standpoint. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 February 1912

the wows com. From n Woman'a Standpoint. A crusade lias just begun in Melbourne against the dissemination and sale of un wholesome literature. The subject is one that never fails to elicit a certain spas modic public interest of the kind that exhausts itself in the holding of public meetings whereat to record solemn reso lutions of disapproval. So far, however, but little of a definite nature has ever been done to grapple with a steadily growing evil. An association was formed in London quite recently for the purpose of cheeking this moral pestilence, but, un til public feeling has been fully stirred, 110 one may expect any advance in the matter. Our legislators, for instance, might bo taught to realise that a "White Australia" policy involves a conception of moral uo less than racial responsibili ties. If, too, Australians generally would recognise the fact that the imported neurotic novel, or problem play, or quasi scientilic treatise upon tabooed subjects does not necessarily rep...

The Forbes Times. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1912; MK. MtCiOWEN'S ESTIMATES. In making out a case last year to justify the imposition of the new Income tax, as well as of the addit ional stamp duties which were pro posed, but which have not yet been provided for by legislation, the Prfeii.ier, Mr McGowon, and other members of the Ministry based their arguments mainly on the fact that while State expenditure was not. showing any decrease, the tcvoiiuc would manifest a considerable con traction owing to the altered ar rangements with the Commonwealth It was urged that the substitution by the Federal Government of the payment to the States of 25s per head of population instead of re turning to them the amount provid ed for under the famous Braddon clause of the Constitution would in volve a loss to this State iu particu lar of something over a million sterling.

CANADA THROUGH AUSTRALIAN SPECTACLES READY MADE FARM CHAPTER XVI. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 February 1912

THROUGH AUSTRALIAN 1\ :: :: :: SPECTACLES :: :: :: READY MADE FARM By ROBERT McMILLAN CHAPTER XVI. When British people start a colony, they invite all the world to conic in and share the blessings of the place, and there is'something magnificent in that British form of hospitality, which gives welcome) to every soul. But it won't work always, as we have found out in Australia. If we had left our borders open, our lands would now be swamped with low class chinamen and dusky coolics, but we've had to fix up an "Alien Act," arid we refuse to allow a chinaman to enter our country for less than £100. as a poll tax. The United States are suffering.now from the influx of undesirable citizens, and they are drawing the. cords of entrance to their country very tight. It's a bit late in the day to do it . surely, but "better late than never." The Canadians are:not quite so rigid, I fancy, as the Americans but still, they, are fairly particular, and lay themselves out for farmers1 and laborers'...

THE STEWSOMENESS OF IT. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 17 February 1912

THE STEWSOMENESS OP IT. The Boggabri "Examiner," worked up to a terrible state of desperation, fires off a harrowing tale:—"Situated as Boggabri is, we receive the unhampered blast of every typhoon, eyclone, hurricane, storm, mild wind, or breeze slap in the face. Yes terday's dust-lifting and hat-distributing breezy blast was a 'snifter,' and that of Thursday a fair 'blitherer.' These 'mild whiffs' danced and pranced merrily across hundreds of miles of plains, and by the time they reached here were heavily laden witli heat. At every biff the thermometer would rise from 20 to 30 degrees—accord ing to the velocity of the bil'f. At one time we had to place ice on the ther.'s feet and bathe its head in ice water to guard against the mercury jumping out at the top. Oh, yes, it's hot alright; but nothing to some places! Down the river a bit the water is boiling, and all the fish are cooked." "Ijct's drop in to the restaurant." "Oil, I don't believe 1 earo to cat any thing." "Well, como i...
