Not a fairytale strange animal on the tasmanian coast h0bart, May 25. The Secretary of mines air. Wallace has received irom or. Hartwell Conder state mining Engineer the following account of a remarkable animal which is reported to have been seen on the West coat by sonic men engaged in state prospecting work being carried on in Little non a country Between Mac Zarifi har. Bour and port Davey "1 have to report the discovery of an animal on the seacoast about 12 Miles North of Point Hibbs of so strange a character that it is deserving of r special mention. It is to strange mat i both the men who saw it and my std anticipate quite cheerfully the smiles and in i credulity of those who read this account j no one is asked of believe it but i have always held Villi not a few others that creatures exist ii the sea which Are Only very rarely seen. In the belief that one i of these creatures has been encountered at close quarters this description is offered i in the that ultimately it will i be found to be not a. Fairy tale but a Small addition to oar knowledge of Tea life. The Ani Inai was seen by Oscar , Foreman prospector and his mate Warris who Are. under myself the state Alining i Engineer for Tasmania. I have known Botn of i Mem for a considerable number of years and can guarantee absolutely their 6obrietv. Intelligence and accuracy. I. Have no doubt myself that their statements represent what j Uliey really Taw. L hey were talking along the coast on april 20, just before Sundown on a Calm Day with Small Waves roiling in and breaking on the Shore. The coast Here is Low. With Sand dunes rising above highwater Mark. At a distance of about Naif a mile they noticed a dark object under the dunes which surprised them by showing signs of movement. They advanced towards it and finally came within gunshot. When about 40 Yards off it Rose suddenly and rushed Down into the sea. After getting out about 30 Yards it stopped and turned round showing Only the head and some of its neck. It waited there for about live seconds and then withdrew under the water and disappeared. The characteristics Are summarized As follow it was 15 it. Long this measurement was checked by stepping the Mark in the Sand where it had been lying. Or. Davis has done much building and construction work and knows what 15 it. Look like. It had a very Small head Only about the size head of a Kangaroo dog. It had a thick arched neck passing gradually into the barrel body. It had no definite Tail and no tin. It was furred the coat in appearance resembling that of a horse of Chestnut Colour Well groomed and shining. It was attractive in appearance and in no Way repulsive looking. It had four distinct legs. It travelled by bounding that is by arching its Back and gathering its body up to that the footprints for feet Are level and also those Hind feet made definite footprints. These showed circular impressions with a diameter measured of 9 in., and the Marks of four claws about 7 in. Long extending outwards from the impressions and away from the body. The footprints show about 4 it. Between the Marks fore and Hind feet and then a about 10 ft., making a total of 15 it. Laterally they were 2 it. O in apart. It travelled very fast. A Kangaroo dog followed it hard in its course to the water a distance of about 70 Yards and in that distance gained about 30 it. When first disturbed it reared up and turned on its Hind legs. Its height standing on the for legs would be from 3 it. 6 in. To 4 it. Both men Are quite familiar with seals and the so called sea leopards that occur on this coast. They had also seen before and subsequently observed pictures of 6ea Lions and other Marine animals and can Fine no resemblance to the. Animal that they saw. Such Are the details. When the humorists have enjoyed themselves at our expense the men of science May be Able to connect this account with others which have come Forward from time to time of strange beasts in our Ocean. That no imprint was taken footprints and no marking out Unade form in the Sand no one regrets More than we do. The next tide swept Over them and they Are travelled without a ticket. An immigrant acquitted. Melbourne May 25. In the City court yesterday George Williams an immigrant who recently arrived in Adelaide from Dublin by the Steamer irishman was charged with having travelled from service ton to Melbourne without a railway ticket. Marshall Coburn conductor on the Adelaide express stated that when coining into Bacchus Marsh on Friday he from information received searched for a Stuj away. He found Williams underneath a seat. Williams had been in that position since the train left Bordertown and must have been uncomfortable because he had Only 10 in. Of space.

Federation and local autonomy with efficient constitutional government both in the Commonwealth and the state. This is what liberals Are fighting Tor. Governmental preference to unionists is one worst attacks on Liberty Ever devised by human tyranny. If an irresponsible Federal authority is to fix the wages of tie railway employees the states would assuredly hesitate Long about extending the railway systems. The most claimant advocates re Ferenda Are militant socialists who would utterly destroy private Enterprise. Tampering says Burke is the odious vice of restless and unstable the re Ferenda proposals overthrow the main principle of a federation. The encouragement and support Given to covenant breaking and deeds of violence when the offenders Are on their own Side Are a Stem warning against conferring increased Powers on the political labour leagues As the wire pullers parliamentary socialist party. Since the Liberal Victory in the state we have a in Able at least to breathe the Atni sphere without . Of w. Young. The actual occurrences during the Brisbane strike furnish a powerful illustration of what would probably happen under unification when there no state government. Law and order were defied. Civil Liberty was violated. The stale government eventually suppressed the disorder. But the Fisher government praised and rewarded the strikers. If trusts and combines in Australia arc so terribly dangerous and greedy Why Don t the labour party with their command of ample funds create manufacturing and producing concerns on their own account if ill they say is True such enterprises would be abundantly prosperous. Electors must realize that most outcries against trusts Are Mere Bluff and Humbug. As the political labour leagues shrink from engaging in great Industrial enterprises of their own How can the electors expect the caucus to direct and manage profitably nationalized monopolies " the sugar commission appointed by the Fisher ministry reported against the proposed nationalization of. The sugar Industry and the growers Organ declares that the greatest danger to the Enterprise is the unwarranted and generally misguided interference Federal the labour party say they want larger Industrial Powers for the Sake of peace but up. Spence the head of a Union of 104,000 men said not Long ago that there could never be anything called peace private Enterprise shall be wiped out and the Verran ministry sacrificed Industrial peace to preference to . T. W. Young. Nowadays if socialism had its Way no person would be allowed to earn a livelihood unless he were a member of a political trades Union. A Premium is often necessary to be one vide the hatters Union. The absent voters provision was abolished because the Ministeri lists found that the majority votes were against them. They not Only deprive sick women of their votes but Many of them sect to prevent free preference to unionists Means that any one who does not concent to be a save to autocratic socialism must starve. Broken Hill unionists attempted to prevent traders irom serving officers who were not members of a Union. So far As the policy government is concerned said the prime minister to a deputation from the trades Hall Council in Melbourne its policy is to give preference to unionists. That is definite and distinct. There Are a Large number of trades where the men will not work with non unionists. As a Union establishes its Bona fides preference will be Given. The government will stand or fall by or. Holf Flimin the socialist attorney general of new South Wales says in regard to the proposal for the Commonwealth to take More Power to Deal with Trade and Commerce that if the Powers under domes tic Commerce Are transferred to the Federal parliament practically All vital questions will be left outside the Bounds state parliament. Or. Wise k.c., speaking in the Adelaide convention at which the Constitution was framed said there is no matter in which varied local development is More necessary or desirable to a state than the development of its Industrial the political labour leagues ask the elec tors to hand this Power Over to a body which has Little or no knowledge of local requirements. Or. Holman remarked recently in regard to the Industrial proposition under the re Ferenda he was convinced that the handing Over of Broad general Powers to Deal with labour and employment would have the effect not of increasing the safeguards with which labour is surrounded but of decreasing the efficiency of those which existed under state preference to unionists in the government service is virtually an intimation to civil servants that they must support the government party. That is opening the door to the american system of a change in every office with a change of government. The leg Tom stakes. We Are in the straight Melbourne. Mav 25. In or poring a vote of thanks to the speakers at a meeting held m the town c Hall last night in Celebration of i Empire Day. Miss dirham said she hoped or.

Our organization is working at top Speed and steam is up. The liberals do not descend to the same conduct As the other Side at Public meetings. Ill you please keep it for another week applause i Hope every one will go away from this meeting resolved that for the next five or six Days you will not give any electors a moment of peace until they have told you that thes Are going to vote for the Liberal. Cause. Remember we Are in the Airai by now. And it. Is the Little extra thai wins the race.

J _ run a of Tui a message from or. Pease. In View near approach of polling Day and the momentous issues to be decided which Are fraught with such vital importance to the states May i venture to urge All electors to do their very utmost to return candidates pledged to uphold the interests states and to reject the re Ferenda proposals. The carrying of these proposals would be a big step to wards unification and a death blow to the states. The recent disastrous and tyrannical strike at broken Hill shows in fierce Light what will happen if the control railway employees passes from the states to the Commonwealth. With a socialistic government in Power bossed driven by the militant political unions the railway service would be captured and Trade and Commerce paralysed bringing untold trouble and misery. The loss which the state Revenue has already suffered should convince evry elector necessity for putting aside every obstacle on election Day going to the poll working Bard and standing loyally to the Liberal Union As an urgent patriotic duty and responsibility.
