Northern National Works. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Northern National Works. RESPECTING the"*resolutions passed by the League last week, the Member for the Clarence writes : " The Clarence Harbour works are awaiting the report of the Works Committee. I sent in an application three months ago to have provision made on the Loan Tote for the work, and the Secretary for Works pointed out that ample pro- vision will be made on the next Loan for the work. There will be another Loan Estimate before the end of the year, which, in fact, will be just as good as if it were on the Loan now before the House. The mistake is that the Byron Bay ; scheme should have been placed on the present Estimates ; but it really means nothing. i " The Minister for Works states that the Glen i Innes line is impracticable ; but that a line from i South Grafton to Guyra is under his consideration ; ; and from the reports already to hand he believes i that it is one he could recommend. He says that ; it passes through very good country, and that the J cost will not...

Water Supply for Grafton. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Water Supply for Grafton. SIB.-Will yon allow me space in your valuable' paper to draw attention to the old subject " Water supply for Grafton.'' This important subject interesta every one of us, both north and south ; and I am sure the majority of the ratepayers are in favor of it. The present would be a very opportune time to m ake a start. A number of our mechanics and best working men are leaving for other places, and I fear if no inducement is offered to keep them a great many more must go soon. I have noticed during the hut few months a number of our working men standing about the street corners, on the look out for a job ; and it must be remembered that the men I allude to are not loafers. I have known many of them for years to be good honest workmen. This matter of Water Supply is a very serious one. It is only a few months since a large number of our citizens were depending upon the waterhole in Fisher Park for a supply; and any one of common sense must know that the supply...

The Council and Protection to the River Banks. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

' The Council and Protection to the River Banks. SIB.-It is diffionlt to understand 'the opinions of some of the Aldermen in respect to the duty of the Con noil in protecting the river bank at the ends of streets. If a property-holder does something to protect his own property from damage, it sorely is at'leasfthe "duty bf the Borough Council to aesist that property-holder in the preservation of his property by protecting the end of the street upon which that property abuts. The Council would certainly not expect a property-holder athis own expense to build a retaining 'wall along' thé "street front, and to thereby acquire it may be an equit- able right to the exclusive use of his retaining walL As coming from a ratepayer an improvement of the kind referred to was quite justifiably asked for. For what other object, it might be asked, does property go ' situate contribute rates V If the Council has no right to protect the ends of its streets from being destroyed, and contributing to ...

The meeting took a conversational tnrn, and after mattera had been talked over, it was found that there was no ! pressing necessity for raising money at once, but that in view of the future financial engagements that the Institution would be called upon to meet, it would be well to make arrangements with the i manager of the Commercial Bank for a temporary [ overdraft of dEMXX The acconnto passed for pay- ment at lr st meeting were ordered to be paid forth- with, and the remainder to stand over for a. few .weeks.

Lawrence. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

-Lawrence. MONDAY. Retrospective and Prospective.-Now that the elections,in connection with the Lawrence District Improvement Board have been brought almost to a final issue, a brief retrospective allusion to the old Progress Association doings, and a pro- spective portrayal of the newly formed combina- tion, may not.be out of place. The Lawrence Progress Association was one of the first, if not the very first, association establishedrin the Clarence District, and from its beginning seemed to have undergone a series of upi and downs ; or, if a more euphonic term may be used, its characteristics were marked with vivacity of inception and prematur- eness of decay. There cannot be any doubt that during the first year of its life much good work was done, and that during the second and third annual periods of existence (the<? third -period was a troublesome one) many good - intsntions 'met with a fair return ;. but still, upon look- , ^ ing back to the time of its initiation,-...

Sporting. Aquatic. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

Sporting. I * ^Aquatic. THE gig tace between the two fours of the Grafton Rowing Club on Saturday afternoon, who competed the week previous attracted a numerous attendance, and created mach interest. The Pinafore's crew, S. R. Irving (stroke), W. G. Evans, E. W. Coombe, and - E. & Platt started as favourites, and got slightly the beet of the start, the course being ramed by a moderate south-easter. The crew of the Calliope-W. Stevenson (stroke), W. C. Casey, H. E. Williams, and F. M'Guren, however, soon showed to the front, and after some good rowing on the part of both crews, the Calliope managed to get a length to the good. Stevenson's crew led for about half a mile, at which point one of the crew (Williams) showed signs of being rowed out, and the Pinafore crew, rowing in good form, soon went to the front, and with a good telling stroke rowed home easy winners, three or four lengths in front of the Calliope.

FLOWER SHOW AT MANLY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 September 1889

FLOWEB SHOW AT MANLY. ON Thursday there waa opened at Manly the annual show of native flo were. By general consent the display is declared to he the best of the kind ever seen. A year or two ago fears were expressed that these shows would have the effect of destroy- ing all the native flower-bearing plants in the vicinity nf Sydney, and I shared those fears. But I have now reason to believe that there was no cause for them. I was at Manly recently, and everywhere within half-a-mile of the town the bloom was amazing. It was quite as plentiful as it was four years ago. Indeed, it seemed to me, that it was more plentiful. And if anyone were to visit the district to-morrow, he would be unable to tell whether any flowers had been taken away. The Show should produce a net sum of £100 or £500.

Political and Social Letter. > [WHITTEN SPECIALLY FOB THE EXAMINES.] . --? THE WOMEN'S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE BILL. THIS Bill has pa::ed through the Upper House, and in the course of a few months all the members of the feminine persuasion who desire to become proficient in Greek, Latin and Mathematics, which knowledge pc-.es for cuiture now-a-days, and who have cash enough to pay University fees, will be able tí cany on their studies in a building aifiliated to the University. I must say I cannot see the necessity for this expenditure. I believe in educated women, but getting crammed with Latin and Greek is not my notion of being educated. I like a woman to have a fair knowledge of some of the best English books, to have more than a smattering of French, to be pretty well up-in instrumental and vocal music, to be able to write a good letter, and ty converse on general tDpics in an intelligent manner. But a woman can get this knowledge and acquire this power without going to a Univers...
