CONSTITUTIONAL CRITICS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 13 February 1899

CONSTITUTIONAL CRITICS. - A oood deal of flutter and fuss was created last week by some wiseacres who professed to have discovered csrtain technical flaw3 'in- legislation which threatened to render the two by-elections null and void. It was contended that inasmuch as tLe amended Electoral Act provides only for 37 members of the House of Assembly whilst the Constitu tional Act, also amended, provides for 38, the contradiction was sufficient to invali date the elections about to be held. The Constitution Act is undoubtedly the key to the Electoral Act, which is designed only to give effect to its pro visions, Upon tliis point all reliable authorities are agreed, but it would have been wise for the critics to have paused long enough to niaku certain enquiries before stating any very dictatorial' opinion. The amended Electoral Act has received the Roygl assent, but the principal Act has not, and consequently the machinery by which the Hobart and West Devon elections were to be conducte...

DEFENDING THE SLANDERED. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 13 February 1899

DEFENDING THE SLANDERED. Haying in remembrance the events of the past few months, when our local conr temporary, then in the full enjoyment of autocratic censorship of political matters in this particular portion of the island, so repeatedly twisted the affairs of that time to suit its own convenience, it is not a matter for much surprise — -though certainly for very great regret— that even now the public are treated to acon tortion of the facts as they actually exist. Those who took an interest in the recent court case, W. Innes versus Captain W. Ilolyman, must have been struck with the trivial nature of the alleged offence^ — a fact which was fully borne out, by the verdict of the presiding justices. Yet by a peculiar process . of journalistic imagining on the part of a certain writer who has repeatedly pro claimed his desire to see public life purified, the facts of the case decided last week in the Devonport Police Court have been magnified and distorted to a degree. We have no ...
