RETRIBUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 March 1905

RETRIBUTION. It is somewhat pathetic to re member that a very largk ma jority of the N.S.W. civil ser vants voted for the Carruthers' party at the last election. It is a significant thinir — and vet a thing that is easily under standable — that in nearly every country the State employee ( whose industrial conditions are generally better thau those of the privately-employed man) invariably votes for the capi talist politician, who is consist ently opposed to the payment of a fair living wage to the lower-grade State employee. * * * Just now, tli:s class of civil servant is suffering at the hands of the Reform Govern ment for whom he voted, and his lamentations may be heard throughout the land. The Reformers are not giving much trouble to the big men of the service — it would never do to reduce the salaries of judges who get /~2ooo atid /'3000 a year, with handsome, pensions when they retire ; and it would not be politic to cut down the tell-toppered autocrats who, from their vantage ...

THE MUNICIPAL MOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 28 March 1905

THE MUNICIPAL MOVE. In view of the present munici pal situation in Queanbeyan, it wotdd be a wise thing for the democratic forces to take time by the forelock and organise for possibfe contingencies ; for, notwithstanding all that may be said with regard to tbej soundness of the case so far as I the sitting aldermen are con cerned, one never can tell what will happen in a court of law — which isn't necessarily al ways a court of justice. If the present move should prove suc cessful, it ought to be easily possible, with decent organisa tion and an energetic effort, to win the three seats when the uext battle is fought And a victory of that sort would place , the business or the Council on a far more satisfactory footing than at present. In fact, it will only be through such a victory that the Council's affairs will : £jver:Jjiave.a 'hope of being con ? ducted satisfactorily. ? iniiU-lsRie Mr*.

A World Elsewhere. Victoria has had no general rain for four inoulbs. A flock of thirty-three valuable young lambs, started byastonnat Pouletts, Vic toria, rushed against, a wire fence just as it was struck by lightning. They were dead lambs on the spot. The jury disagreed in Dr. Marshall's case again.^ The American polato crop for 1904 is 332,000,000 bushels— an increase of 40 million bushels 011 the best previous re cord. An American politician has drafted a bill providing that any criminal con demned to death shall be allowed one of four modes of extinction, by being hung, sbot, poisoned, or drowned. * * * A Windsor farmer secured 34s per dozen for pumpkins, seven doien of them weigh ing 19 cwt., and a single one «oing 45% lbs.
