FARMERS AND TEE SINGLE TAX. (To the Editor of the "Argus.") [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 2 January 1909
FARMERS AND THE SINGLE TAX. (To the Editor of the 'Argus.')' Sir, — Opponents of land value taxa- j tic-n constantly seek to make out that taxation of land values only would be j specially hard on farmers. As a mat ter ot fact it would greatly reduce the fanners taxes. Let me bring under the notice of your readers the views of one of the front rank public men of the United States on this question. Tom L. Johnson began life at the hottnm of the ladder. He became a railway mag nate and amassed a large fortune. One day he was advised to read Progress and Poverty. He did and became a di ciple and a friend of Henry George. He became a member of Congress, and afterwards Mayor of Cleveland to which office he has been elected four times in succession for two year periods. At the last mayoral election President Roose velt supported a strong opponent in a ! vain enort to oust him. Here is a re port of the conclusion of meeting com posed almost exclusively of farmers. ' After speaking on the i...

A WAGGA FISH STORY.

On removing tiro ^ nets for the first time, (the caretaker p and several others present were star tied by hauling out a large Murray; it codfish, which turned the scales at 351b. | How the fish came there is a mystery, fl as the rivel- Is a mile distant.

Fire Fiend at Blayney. BUSINESS BLOCK PARTLY DESTROYED. Blayney, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 2 January 1909
Fire Fiend at Blayney. BUSINESS BLOCK PARTLY DES TROYED. Blayney, Friday. This morning, about 1 o'clock a fire broke out in Adelaide-street, the main street in the ' town, in premises opposite the Post Office.- Before the outbreak was discovered, tlie flames had secured a good hold of the build ing, and, as there is no fire brigade in the town, the people were unable to do anything to - suppress the con flagration except by primitive mean.:. As a result, the flames spread rapid ly, and five or six shops — with their Contents — were' completely 'desitroyiack. The fire wate first discovered' soon after, 1 o'clock, but its origin is a | mystery. - Watlchnight services had been held in the' churches, and, as usual, people were about -the streets seeing the new year in. Nobody, however, appears to have noticed any sign of fire, and before tho ala-in was raised, the'-flames had begun to spread. Immediately after tlie alarm was sounded, however, a crowd as sembled, and everything- possible...
A TURON PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 2 January 1909
A TURON PROPOSITION. A Mudgee syndicate is in process of formation to take over the option of purchase of the British Lion mine, situated at Gulf Mountain, Upper Tur on. The mine was worked in the early sixties, and several crushings were taken out, which gave results of six to fifteen ounces per ton— something to make the mouth water these degenerate days. The mine was worked under the Drimi tive conditions of mining in those days, and the miners were driven out by the heavy water when 'they had reached the shallow depth of 140 feet. When the opiion is accepted the party will test the lower levels in the vicinity of these rich veins by means of tunnels which have been driven under them to drain off the water. There are said also to be some satisfactory low grade deposits in the close vicinity of the shafts which have been put down on the line of reef.
MR. LLOYD AND NO LICENSE. (To the Editor of the "Argus.") [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 2 January 1909
? MR.: LLOYD [AND NQfLICENSE^j (To the Editor of the 'Argus.'} Sir,— In this morning's paper you give Mr. Lloyd's reply to the question asked him about his views on opening hotels on Sunday. 'You would have less drunkenness,' he said, 'if you had hotels open for a certain time on Sunday.' It is an easy thing to turn up the police records of the days when hotels were open on Sunday, and compare the convictions for drunken ness obtained then, and those of to day, and anyone who will take the trouble to do so will see how reckless Mr. Lloyd is in his utterances. The benefits of restricting the sale of drink 011 Sundays have been shown again and again: Take the results of our recent restrictive legislation as an example. In the last year' of the old Act, 1905, when Sunday selling was 1 winked at, there were in Sydney alone j 1350 convictions for drunkenness on Sunday. The next year, under the new Act, the convictions dropped to 315. For the whole State there' was a corresponding fall. I...
Correspondence. THE WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor of the "Argus.") [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 2 January 1909
Correspondence. THE' WATER SUPPLY. (To the Editor of the 'Argus.') Sii', — A second notice appears m ?ylour advertising columns, askiing householders to exercise strict econ omy in the use of water. The daily consumption ' is about 500,000 gallons. This is a; strain the present supply cannot longer stand. It is necessary to get the consumption down to about half the above quan tity, until rain falls, or we must be afflicted with an intermittent supply. I hope to let the citizens know from day to day how the Council's appeal is being responded to, and It is to be hoped indeed that no one will be selfish enough to neglect or ignore' it. Yours, etc., ... . F. B. KENNY.
