"Our Queanbeyan Letter." [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 20 May 1904
"Our Qeanbeyan Letter," [By \ 'Ho- .e" DEAR SIa,-How do you like your rabbits ? Roasted, boiled, or fried-or poisoned ? The local Pastures Protection Bo rd is evidently determined that the " bunny," though he does departure with the jumbuck, shall not enter into competition with him as a table dish S Neither shall the unemployed be" given the pri ilege of trapping as a means of earning a crust during the winter months. Funny thing this sudden anxiety to enforce the poisoning clause of the Act, just at a season in the year when the " Rabbo" becomes of commercial value. Which is the better means of .dealing with the pest on a holding of 40,000 acres - fifty trappers constantly working during the winter or three poisoning machines used at intervals of a week, or ten days? The Coalition only hangs fire through ibb inability of the two party leaders to agree as. to whom the doubtful honour of Chief should belong. Sweet state of affairs when the fate of the country hangs on a side issue o...

PARSIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 20 May 1904
PARSIMONY Though the Goverament is accused of reckless extravagance in various branches of its legislation, it has, at least in one way deserved for itself an encomium for the decrease of expenditure in the item of firewood in the local Court House. Situated in the body of the court room is now to be seen a useless stove, from which extends &nbsp; across the room, what might be termed a flue, to convey a stifling quantity of smoke to the press reporters and court officials. The intention of the stove so far as we can ascertain, is to minimise the consumption of fuel, and that of the flue as a heating genera- tor for those within the room. It is regret- table that a proper method of warming the cold walls of the Court House cannot be adopted other than such fruitless attempts as this. In the body of the room there are two fireplaces, but apparently, as time wears on, so-called scientific inventions are experi- mented, much to the convenience of those plying their vocations at...
MINISTERIAL EXTRAVAGANCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 20 May 1904
1 MINISCERIAL EXrRAVAGANOE. o TO THE EDITOR. Snt,-Whenever we of the Opposition charge the Ministry with extravagance, they and their supporters fall back on the old worn outcry of " Oh! we have had an extraordin tary expenditure that no other Governument ever had, and- the Opposition give us no I credit for it." Now if you will give mespaee I will endeavour to justify the fact that there has been an extravagant expenditure, and to do so I will aive the revenue for 4 years from 1895 to 1899 and from 1899 to 1903 as a comparison. For the former date, under the Reid Government it was £37,439;723 ; for r the latter under the Lyne See Government it was £43,125,617 or in excess in favour of the latter of £5,686,924 and while the former Government left office with a surplus of £116,000, the latter haud a deficit of £484,355 at the end of their 4 years. Then with re gard to loans for the same time, the former expended £6,093,622 and the latter £12,239,285, so if we add the excess of re ? v...

Local Government. Ta convention of representatives from Municipalities, Pastures Protect;on Boards, Progress Associaticns, and Farmers and Settlers' Associations, met in the Masonic Hall Sydney, at 11 o'clock yesterday morning. A large number of delegates were present, among whom were :-Mr. James McCarthy, Mr. Hungerford, and Mr. Fred. Campbel, of Queanbeyan. Mr. Wise, the acting-Premier, opened the convention in a speech, in which he said his first duty was to welcome with fitting brevity those present, because they had assembled there to do practical work. He said that for more than 25 years the promise of local government had been figured in almost every Governor's speech, and for. over five and twenty years local government had been in the air, but it had not come down into the field of practical politics. Diuring' the convention there was to be no element of party feeling introduced, and he would do all he could to exclude all party considerations. The reason local government h...

" LIFE" FOR APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Age — 24 May 1904
"LIFE " FOR APRIL. DASHING at full gallop through the cover of "'Life" for April is *a Japanese . horse:an, with lance at the ready. It is a striking lid to a casket of equa.ly good and up.to-date matter. The war which is, of course, the topic of the world at the present moment, is dealt with from many aspects. There are paragraphs, editorials, interviews, and spec? ial articles, to say nothing of caricatures and photographs ; all so well done that the busy man can get a thoroughly comprehensive grasp of the situati9n very quickly. The Australasian oharaofer of " Life" is more than ever emphasised. Sir Joseph Ward, New Zealand's P.M.G., contributes a: most readable article on " The Humours of the= Post Office."
