Cablegrams. ? HOME POLITICS. LONDON, February 3. The Duke of Devonshire proposes to form in the House of Lords a third party which shall consist of Unionist and free trade peers. February 5. The Times, referring to the leader ship of the Unionist party, says that although Mr. Balfour and Mr. Cham berlain are unable to arrive at a full political agreement, they remain friends, and there is not the slightest personal competition. Mr. Chamber lain wishes his scheme of tariff reform to be made the main plank in the Unionist platform, and those who do not regard it as snch he 'will no longer regard as members of the party. If Mr. Balfour will accept this view of the situation, he (Mr. .Chamberlain) will prove a loyal lieutenant. If, on the other hand, Mr. Balfonr is unable , to modify his attitude, then Mr. Chamberlain will form a wholly separate party, composed of tariff reformers, under his own leadership. Mr. Chamberlain, adds the Times, is willing to serve under Mr. Long, ex Chief Se...

BANGEMALL NOTES. ALLUVIAL GOLD. DEATHS IN THE BUSH. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT). [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 10 February 1906
BANGEMALL NOTES. » ALLUVIAL GOLD. DEATHS IK THE BUSH. ("FJIOM A. COBRESPONDENTV Since I last wrote I have heard of one party who for some time have been drop ping on dabs of from 12 ozs. downwards in the claim they have been working. When this information leaked ont another party commenced operations below them and got a half ounce piece, besides some fine gold where they bottomed. They have not had time to thoroughly try whether the run continues. This gold is being got about 203 yards down from the bar in what diggers who know B&ngemali call the Prospectors' Gully, to the right of the shallow channel that runs down to the Government well. The ground here is about five feet deep. There is a chance of this gold continuing down the flat, in which case it might torn out a big thing. If it were anywhere else save in Bangema.il I would expect it to do so, but in Bangem all it is hard to say what might occur. Two sad deaths from thirst took place about fifty miles above Mt. Augus...

ALLEGED CANNIBALISM ON THE EASTERN GOLDFIELDS. PERTH, February 12. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 February 1906
ALLEGED CANNIBALISM ON THE EASTERN GOLDFIELDS. PERTH, February 12. j In an interview which the half caste native Harris had with the Premier on Friday in connection with the alleged cannibalism by natives on the North-Eastern Goldfields, Harris stated he was misrepresented in the report which appeared in the news papers on the previous day. Harris said he had known one or two cases in which half-castes had been eaten, and believed from what he had heard other cases of cannibalism had oc curred. He wished to impress npon the Premier that unless the natives were afforded assistance such cases might occur again. He certainly had not desired to convey the impression the ' newspapers had made of it. He. did not wish to convey the idea that at the present time the native children were being eaten three times a day. The Premier said he would fcave inquiries made into the matter at once.

The Northern Times. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1906. THE ABORIGINES ACT, 1905. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 February 1906
The PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1906. THE ABORIGINES ACT, 1905. THE present Parliament!, and especially the Ministers responsible for its draft ing, deserve credit for the new Aborigines Act, which now only awaits the Royal assent to become law. It would be too much to expect a complete solution of all the knotty points which beset the treatment and employment of our aborigines, but tbe Act under review is certainly a great improvement on preceding measures dealing with the same sub ject. Heretofore it has been admitted that certain abuses existed, but owing to the absence of proper legal machin ery it was difficult and in some cases impossible to adopt remedial measures. The Act of 1905, however, deals with some of these abuses, and providing its provisions are strictly enforced less opportunity should be afforded for strictures concerning the treat- i ment of onr aboriginals. Space will! not allow of our commenting at length J on the new features of ...
TASMANIA. LAUNCESTON, February 14. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 17 February 1906
TASMA3TIA. Lautsceston, February 14. Indignation has been expressed here j at the incident reported to have oc- j curred in connection with the desire 1 of a coloured resident of Mathinna, Tasmania, named Robert Williams, a mineralogist, to remove io Western Australia to take np a position on a mine there. It is claimed that Western Australia has a Mining Act with pro visions which if stringently imposed would Bhut oat from the State many residents of the Eastern States of the Commonwealth. Under the Federal Immigration Restriction Act persons of colour are permitted to travel from State to State, bat the Western Aus tralian mining law gives power to ex clude persons of coloar. Under this law Williams, who was born in the West Indies of South African parent age, and who has resided in Tasmania for thirty years and therefore claims to be a British subject, has been re fused permission to land, and he is therefore nnable to falfil the duties of his important position.

Banks of clouds come ap in the most tan talising manner, only to disappear just as the local weather prophet has assured ue in the most oracular manner, that " We are going to have it." Indeed, the way in which the rain iB holding off is caaeing some uneasiness. There is very little to chronicle of any interest. The Progress League are vigour onsly endeavouring to get a newspaper started here, for which purpose they have been in communication with Mr. King, of Marble Bar. Meantime another Richmond has appeared in the field in the person of a Mr. Barker, who has made a definite, offer to start within a month if guaranteed advertisements to the extent of .£250. It is thought that this gentleman's offer may be accepted. That energetic body (the Progress Association) have also communi cated with Dr. Hicks asking that the pl...
