Tara being the officiating clergyman. Large quantities of fruit and other produce are being shipped from the river every week, and the carrying capacity of the steamers are taxed to the utmost every trip.

The Bubonic Plague. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900
the; Bubonic Mague. neigiíb^ suffering severely from the rav ages of the plague, and the origin of its outbreak is now attributed to the filthy state of the native quarters. Time was when the plague was looked upon as a visi tation from Providence for our sins, and we had to humble our selves in our affliction, and ask no questions. Now, however, while there is no objection to people to believe in the visitation part of it, it is abundantly clear that the particular sin which the plague visits a community for is uncleanliness of body not of soul. In civilised white races the plague is practically unknown com pared with what it used to be in times when such things as the great plague of London was in progress. But though generally speaking in this country we are as cleanly as other people, it is perfectly true that there are in Sydney and Newcastle, not to mention some inland towns, abundant hot-beds of disease where inhabitants mostly colored live in filthy and ill ventilated slums....

Flemington Sale Yards. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900
L Flemington Sale Yards. THE report of the death of several I cattle from heat at Flemington ^ again brings up the question o£ the drawbacks offered by those yards for the purposes to whidk they are put.

Are you aware that the rate-payers of the Borough of Windsor are sub jected to most unfair competition from outside sources, from year's end to"year's end, without any , apparent remedy-simply because it has been decreed that such shall be BO ? Well, it is a fact. Day after day the town is infested with all sorte and conditions of hawkers, who do more to wear out our thoroughfares than any other class, going without con tributing one iota to the cost of tiieir maintenance, besides enter ing into unfair competition with the shopkeepers who are taxed at A pretty stiff rate to keep the aforesaid roads in proper repair for their more favoured * litáis who pay nothing. Could anything be more unjust ? And why is this tolerated in a town 'supposed to be brimming over -with philanthropists and con scie...

Federal Electorates. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900
Federal Electorates. THE Government has done well in appointing a commission to mark out the boundaries of the coming Federal Electorates. This is no easy task, and it is as well that plenty of time should be given, not only to have the work done in, but to permit of as much criticism as possible. When the commission has made its recom mendations, they will be submit ted to Parliament to be passed into law ; then will be the time forany alterations which criticism may have disclosed as necessary. There are to be 26 members f OF New South Wales in the Federal Parliament, and the colony should be divided into 26 electoral divi sions; roughly speaking each federal electorate will comprise five of the present electorates. It will be much more difficult for a man with a " local"" interest only to be returned for these large divisions, and the people must undex*stand that they are not Act ing for Tom or Dick because he is not a bad sort, but they are vot ing for the best man available, wh...
Westralia and Federation. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900
Westralia and Federation, WHILE the gold-field districts of the far Western Colony are carry ing on an agitation for separation from the Perth Government sys tem, the Premier of that Colony is in Sydney making overtures for the alteration* of the Common wealth Bill. How much sincerity there is in either circumstance, ; from a federal point of view, if is j difficult to say from this distance ; Federation has been made a stalk ing horse in this colony for other political questions, so that it would hot beu surprising if the same thing happened elsewhere. The agitation for. separation was originally started in the Kalgoorlie district, not because of ' jsuip-&lt;j Jus lo^i^llo'i^^ed»»! senti ment, ^ï^^^^;|ctuat*)^t:he Renies jgjÉ^nchi60;^^p1^ the I îlefl , 4mnpÚ Ibejggjd field districteitÇ] A^r^njng^j^^^^di^if^ There ís/-#áuro--for -ooniplaintj doabtJeBB^in ?". both ? allegaj£ohs. j With regard to the distribution of expenditure, fully threè-foiirths /Of the entire revenue rece...
Electing State Governors. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900
Electing State Governors. THE Sunday Times ¿reams of a time when we shall elect our own Governors. Let everyone who has similar sentiments, sit down and ask himself two questions, (1) What is a Governor's duties, and (2) What advantages are to be derived by electing him. In a democratic country it sounds grand to elect everything and everybody, hence the Americans elect, not only their Governors, but their judges as well. It is not a good idea. The functions of a Governor are to represent the whole people ; not one particular party ; he signs public documents and performs many similar for malities. Suppose we were to start electing Governors now; two candidates in the field, Reid and Lyne. Most of the old free trade party would vote for Reid, most of the Protectionists for Lyne ; the question of personal fitness would not influence the great majority of voters ; and the success of one man would cause bitterness and a desire for revenge next election in the ranks t)f the defeated par...
A TRUE INCIDENT. (For the HAWKESBURY ADOVATE.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 19 January 1900
Y À TRUE INCIDENT. (FortheHAWKK8BüBr ADVOCATE.) The otter day, «ome müden gay, A visit thought of paying, For sake of chat, to a lady that Not far from town was staying. It was their pride, on horse to ride, And they did long to go off, For, when in form, they could perform, Not that they wished to show off. And one girl there, who'd curly hair, Was just a bit erratic And some did say, she had a way, A eort of turn, theatric. In minutes four, she could act o'er, The comic and the tragio, From laughing farce, to serious pass By turns, as if with magic. For her, in joke, they got a moke, * With ne'er a proper saddle That girl's can't sit, and ls only fit For men or boys to straddle. A coat was had for a knee pad, With leather »traps adjusted. Yet she was game to mount the same, And lightly to it trusted. Her skill as an equestrian, Was something more than common, 'Twas said aside that she could ride As well as most of women. On any beast-or horse at least She'd stick like ring-tailed ...

FOUR CROWN WHISKY. The Best Value of all. Next the Government had trouble with the Transvaal Independence. Basutos. Major Warden, a few whites, and 1852. fifteen hundred blacks were entrapped and hopelessly defeated. Some Boers, in self defence, made a contract with the Basutos to mutually desist from fighting. Taking advantage of the state of auarchy a section of the Dutch negotiated with Prêterions to rise against British Rule, but owing to a report from Major Warden to the effect that he was powerless to defend the colouy because of the scarcity of troops, and as the Home Government at that time had decided that it wanted no more territory in Africa, an agreement was come to whereby the Independence of the Transvaal Dutch was recognised ; the document establishing this was signed on the 17th January, 1852, at what is known as the Sands River Convention.
