ROUGH WEATHER. WIND AND DUST, BUT LITTLE RAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 27 January 1906
ROTJGH WEATHER. WIND AND DUST, BUT LITTLE RAIN. Tlie weather conditions which ob tained locally on Sunday last were the reverse of pleasant. Shortly after eight o'clock the wind, which was blowing from the north-west, increased to an nnnsnal strength, causing sand and dust to envelop everything. Houses and verandahs were plentifully bestrewn with the all pervading particles, which made it almost impossible to face the wind. Indoors little relief cotild be found, for with the thermometer registering 93 degrees and closed windows and doors the heat became almost unbear able. At one time the wind gauge resistered a speed of 34 miles an hour and fears were entertained that a willy willy had meandered from its orthodox sphere in the Nor'-West and intended disporting with local Lares and Penates. The barometer, how ever, only fell from 29 834 (at 8 a.m.) to 29*756 (at 3 p.m.) About 0 p.m. heavy banks of clouds appeared and gave promise of welcome rain. The hopes thus raised were doomed to...

REMARKABLE LETTERS. BY MR, DAVITT. LONDON, January 25. The Freeman's Journal, the leading home rale journal of Dublin, publishes remarkable letters from the pen of Mr. Michael Davitt. Mr. Davitt re joices in the approaching secularisa tion of the Catholic schools in Eng land. He declares it was a piece of asinine stupidity for the Irish Roman ' Catholic bishops to instigate Mr. Red mond to assist Mr. Balfour to pass the Education Act of 1902. This obnoxious piece of legislation has, he states, been the chief canse of the triumphant j radical majority, a majority which is pledged to secularise the schools, bnt j is not pledged to home rule. j

GENERAL CABLES. SOCIALISTS' MEETINGS IN GERMANY. LONDON, January 22, AJthongh Socialist meetings were prohibited to-day in Hamburg, Leip sig, Dresden, and several other towns, the civic authorities permitted 93 meetings to be held elsewhere. Those held in Berlin were attended by an enormous crowd. Resolutions were carried welcoming the revolutionary successes in Russia, sympathising with the victims of autocratic tyranny, protesting agaiDst three classes in the Prussian electoral system, demanding universal, equal and secret suffrage, condoning with reactionaries, and stigmatising the Prussian Diet as a caricature of a real representative assembly. Strong forces of cavalry, infantry, and artillery were held in readiness to support the thousands of police, but there was not the slightest disturb ance. Unofficial workmen police easily controlled their comrades, and the result it is claimed was a triumph for the Socialist organisation.

The northern PASTORAL, MINING AND PEAHLING NEWS. SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1906. THE NORTHERN JETTIES. FOB some considerable time past it has been rumoured that at the expir ation of the current leases in March next the Government intended assum ing the control of all Northern jetties^ and tramlines at present leased I to private individuals and firms. Whilst rumours were in- circulation to | this effect, nothing definite could be gleaned as to the Government's at-! titude in the matter, and even at this late stage an element of doubt exists. In the present issue appears an ad vertisement from the Harbour Depart ment calling for tenders for the leasing of the various jetties for a period of twelve months, and in onr Southern telegraphic news will be found a paragraph stating that at the expir ation of the -present leases the Govern ment intends assuming the control of the Northern jetties and tramlines. This obvious inconsistency is evidently due to a desire on the part of the Governmen...
