The Advertiser. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 25 February 1897
%\t %\%txïwx. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY "25, 1897. THE Premier seems to bave taken a sadden resolution with regard to the representation of this colony at the Federal Convention. When he was in the colonies he declared that it was not possible for the West Australian repre sentatives to be present at the Conven tion in view of the fact that the General Election was fixed to take place in May, and the session to open in Jane. After 1 consultation with bis colleagues, however, j he has apparently come to the opinion that it would be worth, while for the j colony at some inconvenience to be re presented at the Convention. It has ! been decided that Parliament shall be called together on March 13 to elect .¿he delegates, the nominations being due three days earlier. The public, we believe, will agree that in taking this course the Government have done wisely. If the basis of federation is to be settled at the forthcoming Con vention, then Western Australia should take a part in the deliberatio...

OUR PERTH LEITER. f PBOM OT/B OWE COBBESPONTJEHT. i Perth, Monday. One of the weakest administrative pointa of the Forrest Government is its policy in regard to quarantine matters. For some pecnliar reason, a Government which is so capable in most matters does not seem to be able to grasp the situation when dealing with the laws of quarantine and pratique. The reports which have reached ns from Albany in reference to the treatment to which fresh arrivals from Colombo ex perience lead one to suppose that the health authorities at your charming port are (under instructions from headquarters) goipg to the other extreme.
