On being informed that an indemnity of £50,000 to defray the cost of the expedi tion would be exacted by the British Government, Prempeh pleaded piteously that he only possessed 602 ounces of gold, and was utterly unable to pay the amount demanded.

'W'b publish iQ another column the report of an interview between Professor Akdee . b'on-Stuabt and a representative of the Sydney Morning Herald, on the Bubject of water for drinking purposes. The state ments of the Professor, it will he observed, are not encouraging. For a long time past people have labored under the im pression that filtered water at least is pure and wholesome. Thib appears to be the grossest of delusions. As a general rule the filter is not only uselesj for the elimination of objectionable organisms, but it is worse than useles3. ' The filter ing medium of the ordinary filter,' we are told, ' is really a sort of Beed-bed for the organisms, and they live and grow and multiply in it.' One particular make of French filter ia mentioned which really answers the purpose for which it i3 in tended, but the apparatus in question iB not likely to be available for every house holder. In fact if the excellent advertise ment given by the Professor to this particular filter ...

NOTES ON CURRENT EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 31 January 1896
MOTES ON CURRENT EVENTS. We hear a good deal about the beneficent effrct of the new system of homestead selec tions, under which 'God'a poor' are to be provided with permanent houses and means of livelihood. I only hope that these anticipa tions may be realised, though I must confeEs to Bomo doubte on the subject, and I fancy that the letter of a correspondent published in a recDnt issue of the Banner gives a fair expres sion to the viewo of a good many iutendine settlors. But whether the syskm finds f&vor or not, there ia one point of which I am so certain that I will wager upon it. The main beauty of the homestead selection in the eyes of its advocates, io ihatiteaiabliahts permanently the principle of perpetual leasehold. Now I'm not going to deaeurate thia sacrod column by attempting to diecu«3 the relative advantages to the state of the farmers having a freehold or leasehold tenure. I am prepared, however, to stake anything in reason — say a dczen of gingerbeer — that w...

REPORTING POLICE COURT PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 31 January 1896
REPORTING POLICE COURT PRO CEEDINGS. ? ^ . . — . It is a common experience of newspaper editors and reporters to be harassed with re quests for the suppression of reports of parti cular case?. Sometimes the application is made as for a personal favour, sometimes it is preferred with an implied threat that non oompliaDce will entail unpleasant reprisals in the way of withdrawing support from the particular paper represented. To the credit of pressmen, as a whole, it may be eaid that they usually take an independent course, and seldom are induced to withhold a report of any matter which ought to be published. O.i this subject a significant announcement appears in tbe columns of a Wagga journal as follows : — ' I muat.he understood that the invariable rule ot the Express of making police court reports a record of the business transacted, which has been in force for many years past, will be atrictly adhered to, without respect to tbe parties interested. It is considered that the suppres...
