Local Topics. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 16 March 1889
Local Topics. It is evident that tho Vino Diseases Board are making a precious mess of fighting the phylloxera! ills to which the vigneron is heir. As a local Dame Malaprop remarked t'other day, ' That there Board knows nought how to baulk' cm ills.' Railway Commissioner Eddy is quite right, there are too many stations ; but' our friend Duffy is right also in animadverting upon tlie system of locating the stations on private estates. Let Eddy and Co. only rolix the station sites so as to fairly meet the business views and convenience of the general com munity, and tho big crowd whom Duffy repre sents will bo perfectly satisfied. Should Mr. E. AVhitakcr be appointed Council Clerk of Smithfield and Fairiiold, it will bo a bad day for the F. G. U., sinco the latter body really requires (and ous;ht to pay for) his undivided sorviee. At tho present juncture of its affairs, the factotum of the F. G. U. should be in a position to know no other duty than that of pressing forward its interes...

THE FKUITGROWEKS1 ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, MARCH 16. THE CENTRAL CUMBERLAND FREETRADE ASSOCIATION . ? ? The activity and ournostnoss of the staff and members of tho above named Association ave greatly to be commen ded. The signal local victory they so recently achieved at tho polls /would have justly entitled them to a ' spell ' from the labours of further organisa tion, but for the stern fact that the outcome of the general election was but a parliamentary majority of four fox the Free Traders of New South Wales. AVere the organisation of the Free Traders in each of the several elector ates of the colony as good as it admit tedly is in the Central Cumberland constituency, extremely ' rosy times ' might be predicted for the Cause. Such however, is not the case 'unfortunately. Central Cumberland being quite the model electorate of New South Wales it behoves every individual one of those who rupresout tho lights of its healthy Liberalism to set the example of loyal devotion to principle.

Exportation of Fruit. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 16 March 1889
Exportation of Fruit. TO THK KDITOll Ol' T1IU OUMIIKIU..I.NI) A11OUH. Silt,— It is a lamentable fact, iu tho facn of thoso bud timcH, and when wo hear ho much about tho low prices Hint tho fruit, grown in this colony brings, that the fruitgrowers do not combine to miiko tho exposition of nil kinds of fruit a thorough .success. I believe if only Mr. Cairncs, of tho Bank of Now South AVnlcs, Pnrrnmuttn, had had a few of the lcadiiiK' orchurd proprietors to back him up and help him, this great problem would huvo been solved boforo now. I think if wo woro to take a loaf out i.f the squattors' book, iu so far as tho ex portation of moat is concerned, that all in tho fruitgrowing districts would dcrivo groat benefit. They (tho squatters) havo formed themselves into various companies, nud in spite of mnny failures, havo opened up a big t.mdn with tho mother country, and also supply all tho large ocean-going steamers trading with nil parts- of tho world, thereby benefiting them selves, and ...

CHAPTER XXXIX. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 16 March 1889
CHAPTER XXXIX. It seemed very curious to Madge that sho should become tho confidant of those two men, with whoso fate that of her mother had been so sadly associated. Sho was thrust into tho ungracious position of arbiter between them; she had to decide whethor or not the one was false and treacherous, or tho other the victim of his own hasty passion and solf dedved in his accusations. Sho was satisfied that Mr Beecham had spolcon under the conviction oftlio truth of what he told her, and Mr Hadleig-h had just shown her that — if innocent — ho could be magnanimous, by his willingness to moot iu friendliness ono whom ho had so long regarded as his implacable foe. The position involved so much in tlio result to her and to Philip, that sho felt a littlo bewildered, and almost afraid of what she was about to hear. But sho could forgive : that knowledge steadied her Mr. Hadleigh withhis formal courtesy ask her to be seated. Ho stood at the window, and she could see that tho white gloom o...
The Fruitgrowing Industry. No I. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 16 March 1889
The Fruitgrowing Industry. No I. Fkw people, oven among those actually en gnged iu tho industry, have any conception of the progress mado, or of tho proportions fruit growing bids fair to assume during the next low years, in the county of CumboiTand alone. AVitluu the next few years, Galston will becojno thogreat centre of orango culture ; and its pros perity will bo doveloped to an extraodinary dogrco by the construction of tho Castle Hill and Durnl railway, tho terminus of which will bo but 2i miles from tho Gnlston Post-office. Fruit-growing is an occupation which is attracting many persons who have retired from commercial life, and who could find no more beautiful home than in this undulating country, which only awaits tho railway to become easily and pleasantly accessible from town. Every winter, for several years x^nst, kns witnessed tho planting of thousands of young trees; and men are now busy clearing for the approaching planting season, when probably the number of trees pl...

Fairfield News Letter. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 16 March 1889
Fairfield News Letter. News scarce ; rain scarcer ; growling pre valent. Under all thosolcircumstanecs, I don't know why I should call this a news letter. As Mr. Trivett would say ' Call it what you like, but do call it something.' Our new Council is burnishing up its nr mour and getting ready for tho terrible on slaught of blue metal, bridges agin your own door, and all that sort of thing. Last meeting they decided to invite applications for a Coun cil clerk, and I have heard of ono good man being available — an old resident and pro per1 y owner, too — namely, Mr. Edward Whitaker, the indefatigable secretary of tho Fruitgrowers' Union — a smart, capable man, thoroughly versed in municipal law. I suppose other good men will offer, and I hope the best will bo selected, in tho interests of the ratepayers. Valuers are also required. Mr. Tiuvett tells mo that the Progress Association havo been favourably mot by tlio Commissioners, who havo conceded an alteration in the first train, whic...

There were o.5 orchards and residents within a mile of Thomleigh and Hornsby junction, all of whom *'? would use the new station. The Post, ollice ?was established thero ove...

The Fiscal Policy. TO THE HDITOIt OV THE CUJIlUiltLAND AKUUS. Sot, — In your last issue is a letter signed ' Charles Ernest Byrnes ' ou tho above sub ject, which I carefully road through with some interest. I do not intend to enter into a con troversy with JI r. Byrnes ou tho subject, but as half a dozen lines of facts aro worth as many columns of bare assertions, I wish to give a very few of the former and ask Mr. Byrnes a question, and am dono with him. Mr. Byrnes very rashly assorts : — 'Whilst Freetraders resort, as they say, to tho Custom House for revomio purposes only, they must necessarily placo duties on those articles which are most largely consumed, such as, tea, coffee, cocoa, salt, rico, sago, etc., and thus, whothor they will acknowledge it or not, increase tho cost of living and imposo heavy taxation on the largest consuming section of tho commun ity, viz., labour ; whereas Protectionists would ta'ko the duties off those articles, which, owing to climatic influences, ...
