The critics know now that Zola is not the realist he used to fancy himself, and he is full of the best qualities of the romanticism he has hated so much; but for what he is, there is but one novelist of our time, or of any, that outmasters

The operation, named Outmaster
, was aimed at stopping criminals using trains, buses and main roads to transport drugs and weapons around the area.
Class A drugs and weapons including knives were obtained by police officers during Operation Outmaster
last night, which deployed 300 people from the police, Army and enforcement agents at nine sites across the peninsular's roads, and network and bus routes.
