Editorial Notes. The Sugar Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 March 1898

Editorial Notes. The Sugar Industry. Notwithstanding all that has boon said and writton as to tho course tho O.S.E. Company will pursue on tho romoval of tho sugar duties, erroneous ideas on tho subject still appear to bo widely prevalent. It has been freely asserted that if tho duty is fixed at £3 per ton tho Company will continue to erivo 12s per ton for cano. The proposal made by the Com pany somo time ago, and which we presume they still adhoro to, was that if tho duty was fixed at £3 por ton they would give 12s for cane that was up to the 1892 standard, In that year tho cane was of Buch good quality that from seven to sevon and a half tons were suffici ent to make a ton of sugar. If the cane was always of such high quality, tho Company /.nnlrl txrnll crivn 1 9h nnr ton -fnr if Rnl- nr»fni*_ tunately, it usually takes a much larger quan tity of cane to mako a ton of sugar. This fuct is apparontly overlooked by a numbor of zealous onthusiasts with a limited knowlodgo of the pract...

River Bank Erosion. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 March 1898

River Bank Erosion. From several parts of tho district complaints aro heard of tho erosion of the river banks. In Borne places the erosion ia confined to tho upper bank and in such cases is easily dealt with. Iu others thero is also a scour of tho undor bank, resulting from the curves in tho river throwing tho current towards ono bank. Portions of the bank at Palmer's Island aro subject to this under scour, in evortnoiess tno contention 01 Mr. John Balo in our last issue, that it would be useless to protect the upper bank unless the lower bank is socurod, is not justified. The upper bank is being constantly undermined by the wash of the waves and by tho impregnation of the water in. high tides, and the bank, as it falls, is dissolved and carried away by the tides. The outer bank, which is of firmer material, is not scoured by tho tides, and is cut away only by flood currents. All floods, howevor, do not affect the outer bank. Tho 1887 flood scoured away considerable portions of it i...

Murrayville Cricket Match. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 March 1898

Murrayville Cricket Match. Sin, — Having a slight acquaintance with thefacta ia coniieotion with the lato Murrayville-Chataworth cricket match, kindly permit me to say a few words by way of comment on tho unwarrantable manner in which a well-known resident of Murrayville gives vent to nis penc-ap syicuu, uu uuu ui iuu leumnjr members of the Chatsworth Club. His abusive ana scurrilous remarks wore, to say the least, uncalled for, and unbecoming.to a person with any preten. sions to those qualities characteristic of a truo sportsman. On tho occasion of that match tho member of the Chatsworth team retorrod to suo . ceeded in establishing a batting performance un parrelled by any of the members of that team so . 'world renowned in the field of sports.' Under these circumstances it was only natural to expect that 'Tramp,' whose character is so well-known, should try to detract from the popularity of tho per formance, by referring to it in the most disparaging terms.

How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 March 1898

How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local office your general printing ; if you do nob feel able to run an advertisement, Buroly you can afford to give the newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and ? all business printing to execute. The newspaper man needs it, and it holps him to pay his printer for sotting up the thousand and one free notices ho gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such return, and is spending nolther time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The time may come when a newspaper may live simply upon the rovonue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exisb without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore, if you want a good newspaper—one that will still help your town and district— give all your printing to the C.R. Advocate, the only paper published in the C...
