ODD NOTES. [By "Bohemian," in the Telegraph.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 27 November 1875
ODD NOTES,.——-' •' [By "Bohemian," in the Telegraph.] T think I mentioned once before that I am not an Orangeman. I am a Protestant and may-jpossibly have a strain of Irish blood in me —I feel like tha' sometimes "niiea my temper is roused—but I have not as yet been thoroughly convinced; of the necessity for Orange associations in this Uoloay, although I will not aeny that their main cjtjecfc is to foster and develop the Christian sentiment of peace on earth and good will towards men in every direction—especially towards conscientious-.Roman I Catholics. William of Orange is dead, an! has been buried some time ; and I say let him rest in his grave. .That must be the feeling of "a leading member of the Queensland branch of this associa tion, for he has suddenly gone away in digtfst—in such a hurry too,that he could not stop to sehlehis accounts or pay over the money he holds belonging to the various lodges. I can sympathise with that man. ' Bigotry and intolerance never appear so hat...
MR.SMELLIE ON LOCAL MANUFACTURES AND PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 27 November 1875
SMELLIE ON LOCAL MAHUFAC, TUBES ASD PROTECTION, New South Wales is going heavily into rail ways, and will require something like £500,000 worth, of locomotives and oilier irou work and rolling-stock during the next live years. A deputation of engineers and u'on-workera re cently waited upon Mr. Lackey, the Minister for Work for that , colony, to try and persuade him to exclude all foreign competition when lie called, for tenders, so that the Sydney work shops might have it all to theiv; selves at their own figure. Mr. Lackey in reply said ihe com petition would be as free to local manufactures as to others, and if they could not compete suc cessfully with the advantages they e^joy of being on the spot, and being naturally protected by the freights and other charges on imports, " there must be something wrong somewhere." He added that soma time ago competition was confined to local firpas for a large job, and no sooner was a tender accepted than the workmen struck, and the contractor...

The Western Star. ROMA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 27 November 1875
%\jt I&tem ROMA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1875. The old arguments in favour of protection are so attractive that every time they are served up in a new form they so seize and charm the attention that the whole question has to be brought out de novo before they can be laid aside as pleasant butdangerousfallacies. Mr. R. R. Smellie addressed a letter to the , Courier the other day, in which he timidly offered protection to the public in a most de lightful form. New as they seemed, however, they proved the same old theories still," based on class interests and a confusion of cause and effect. Their danger does not lie in their own strength so much as in the good company they are keeping, for they are almost, surreptitiously deduced from a perfectly sound argument. Mr. Smellie attacks the position taken up by Mr. Lackey in his reply to the engineers and iron-workers of Sydney. As long as Mr. Lackey adhered to the free-trade argument that locomotives, being paid for by the public, ...
SURAT. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 27 November 1875
SURAT. [from ocr. qfutt correspondent.] I see in the DaJby Herald of the 13th, a letter orient our bridge, complaining of tliose who have courage to state what ail know, that Cordelia street is about the worst site on the river for a low bridge. The said letter being merely a spite fnl tirade without argument there is nothing in it to answer. All the writer has to do is to show conclusively that a low bridge built at that street will not cos! from £390 to £400 more than if erected at the end of Bertha-street, or that, ad mitting the additional cost, the bridge will be worth the additional cost or more to the country, if built at Cordelia-street. As the plan is not, so far as I know, yet drawn, I hope we may get a high bridge, in which case the Cordelia-street site cannot be bettered. The Hem Id writer being poor in argument for the site he has an interest- in, allow me to supply him with the best I have heard on his side of the question. It "was from the mouth of an old resident, an...
