COOMA. [From the Express.] We are not prepared to say who were principally to blame for the palpably crooked running, but we do know that there was more ' pulling '/ of horses practised at Adatninaby races than has ever been noticed on Monaro before. In the Adaminaby Handicap we are prepared to state that at least two horses were ridden not to win, either under instructions from the owners or from men that had bang}* the jockeys. Win', the owner of onejiorse in that race publicly declared thatjJiis jockey bad deliberately ' pulled '*ls horse. At Delegate show, Mr.'lyV. B. Wright was the principal winner. in the sheep section.

URIARRA. More Postal Plaints. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 March 1905
CRIARRA. Vrom our Correspondent. Kara Postal Plaint!. Yet another trouble which aflects the post office here is the want of proper weighing appliances for both letters and parcels. The letter scales Uave been drunk for years, aud though repeated applications have been made for a . new scales, tkcv have not come to band. Tbe post office ' top bats'' do not appear to trouble about the inconvenience to tbe public nor to the post mistress who con ducts the office here. The Utter is often called upon to remit small amounts of shortage in postage stamps, and this wogld not occur if she was not compelled to guess the weight of parcels, ^larcb 3], 1905. '

HALL. \Vrom our Correspondent. 1 4.u A.ppr«oi»tlon. TBK deatli of Arthur Flower, though not altogether unexpected, came as a great shock to his many friends for miles around Gininderra. It is safe to say tliat there was not a more popular man in the whole district. Prom tbe date of his coming to Giuitt dcrra Iroin Sydney 23 years ago, under engagement to the late Mr. G. Harcourt, to tbe time of bis death, his popularity never waned. Once he launched out as general storekeeper at Hall, Mr. Ben Southwell baring disposed of his business to the popular Arthur ; but his heart was too big and kind, and like many another good man of a free and easy disposition be could not make a success of his own affairs, although an excellent manager lor others. .Shortly before last Christmas be was ordered 'by his doctor to take ,1 tUrec months' holiday. Consumption had at tackiil him, and lie went to Sydney and consulted leading medicos in the city, but it was of no avail. He was brought home and died...
District News. BUNGENDORE. Rough on Mr. Jones. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 March 1905
I District News, i BUNGENDORE. [FXOU ODk COBKESroNDF.NT.] Kontffe on Xr. JTooec. The following is a copy of b letter re ceived by Bandmaster Ward from a party who signs himself as Tom Collins : ' Sir, —I read in The Qubahbbvan Lbader a letter written ' by some blithering idiot called Jones. Shakespeare or some other man writes, ' What's in a name.' There's a lot in it, more especially if you are closely related to Mr. Jones. Some ex quisite examples of the quality known ss cheek are to be found in every day life. I never met with a better than Mr. Jones, who sarcastically writes, intending to convev the impression that ^our band consists of a babel of noises instead of harmonious music. I, Tom Collins, have several times listened to tbe band playing; I did hot expect perfection, but the per formances were creditable. With an extra cornet or two for the tit bits, the rest could be left to the big drum and the bombardon who would do all the stuffing required. I also know that during t...

Political & Economic. CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 March 1905
nSSicauT^ CAPITAL. One of the most cruelly abused terms is the word Capital. It is maltreated by the under standing of the general public. It is abused by teachers in colleges and universities, and it often fares badly even at the hands of working-class propa gandists. The cause of such failure to grasp the meauing of the term is that the lack of scientific training in the methods of re search exposes one to the dan ger of being deluded by U:e mc taphysic method. * * * Capital is generally defined to be the means of production, — the instruments of produc tion and the raw material be ing included in the definition. In our estimate this definition has not the requisites of scien tific exactness and clearness and is therefore erroneous. Still, many accept it as a cor rect definition, and this first error — as the original sin — is, to its victim, the starting point of an erroneous career, of be coming an adept of many heresies. * * * Not only must Capital be a privately owned instrume...
