Letter From The Front. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 11 February 1901
Letter From Tlie Front. The following interesting letter has been received by Mr J. Dill, Toogim bie from his nephew, Mr A. Sproule who is on active service at the front: — 'Observation Post, Rhenoster Kop, 19th December, 1900. Only wrote you a few days since but on 16th yours ? ? ? i,„„j same you ask me what the country over here is like compared with Australia. Well, at the present time there is no comparison, that is, as a pastoral country, but I think in the course of a few years this will bo a greatcountry for squatters. At the pre sent time the couutry isn't half stocked aud naturally the grass that grows is of a very inferior quality, and the climate at present is in parts very un healthy; would be better after the rotten vegetation had been burnt and eaten for a few years. Some of the old farms have splendid crops of oats wheat, etc., and the country, if culti vated for a time is fit, to grow any thing, The best country for grazing or farming we've been through yet is the Ku...
Riverina Federal Elections. MR CHANTER AT DENILIQUIN. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 11 February 1901
Rircrina Federal Elections. MR CHANTER AT DENILIQUIN. Ou Tuesday evening last Mr J. M. Chanter opened the Federal campaign at the above place. The Mayor, Mr G. H. Perrin, occupied the chair. The meeting was well attended. Mr Chanter said he had in the first for the continuous confidence placed in him for such a long time. It was now 20 years since he first stood 011 the platform at the request of a number of electors to represent this district, and was now aspiring after something higher — not a provincial matter hut a national one. In doing so he offered his credentials, and it was for them to say whether he was worthy of the position. He claimed to have always been in entire accord with their views and the wants of the district. One question he had had to consider was the joining together of the colonies, and he did not sit down at the fire side and record his vote, but he travelled from one end of the colony to the other at his own expense giving the electors his honest opinion o...

Our Late Queen. BRISBANE, Feb. 4th. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 11 February 1901
Our Late Qnecn Bkisbank, Feb. 4th. [FROM OUIt OWN CORRESPONDENT.! Saturday was observed as a day~of mourning for the late Queen. All business was, as far as possible, sus pended and the day observed in- every respect like a Sunday. Services were held in all the leading Churches and in the Exhibition Building the accom- 1 modation was quite inadequate, and I large numbers sought in vain for ad mission. Throughout the city for the past week, signs of mourning have been seen everywhere ; all the public buildings, warehouses, etc., were draped in black and purple, and mourning is worn by almost everyone, bearing silent testimony of the grief of the State at the loss of our beloved Queen. Tlie memorial service at the Exhibition building, was, in a sense, the official recognition of the funeral service in London. There was a large muster of troops, each corps being represented. His Excellency the Governor and Lady Carrington were present. The Bishop of Brisbane delivered an address, a lar...

Melbourne Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 14 February 1901
Melbourne Letter. (From our own Correspondent.) Politically, matters are now gener ally concentrating about the Federal elections, and day by day more candi dates are coming into the field, and every one of the aspiring gentlemen appears to be certain of success. It is somewhat of a pity that so many will be disappointed of the honor of serving their country for the paltry pittance of £400 a year. There are some people (how wicked they must be !) who are mean enough to insinuate that it is only the £400 that these patriots are going for, Perish the thought ! Even if we admit that many of the candi dates never owned a £5 note in their lives, and never honestly earned half that amount in any one week, yet we must not overlook their present self denying patriotism. At the same time I am half inclined to fancy that not a few of the candidates will be dear at any price, and that they would never earn half of their salary in a century. I candidly confess that as a matter of principle I am...
The Federal Tariff. FREE—TRADE MANIFESTO. FIGHTING POINTS OUTLINED A REVENUE TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 14 February 1901
The Federal Tariff. FREE-TRADE MANIFESTO. FIGHTING POINTS OUTLINED A REVENUE TARIFF. The free-trade party manifesto in connection with the federal elections is in course of preparation; but mean while Mr Reid has approved of the following fighting points of his policy, as drawn up on behalf of the Free Trade and Liberal party: — 'One of the first duties of Parliament, and in comparably the most important, will be to frame such a tariff of Customs and Excise for United Australia as will yield sufficient revenue for the purpose of carrying on the government of the Commonwealth. In raising this revenue regard should be had solely to the financial needs of tlie Commonwealth and of the several states, whose principal source of revenue will have been assigned to the central governing body. No ul terior object should be aimed at in tax ing the people for the purposes of the government. Taxation should be so imposed that every shilling raised should go direct into the public trea sury, and ...
A LAND BOARD Question. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 14 February 1901
k Land liunrd Question. An important decision, as affecthig solicitors or land agents appearing for applicants before a land board in con nection, with the. determination of priority of conflicting .applications for land, - was riven' by the 'Deniliquin Land Btjard list Tuesday,' Mr'F. A; Trollope, chairman, presiding. Re cently the Crown solicitor gave an opinion that whilst the Board was performing its duty regarding the order of priority, applicants 'had no locus standi, consequently no right to appear or cross-examine one another, either personally or by agent, and the chairmen of the land boards through out the State were advised accordingly. On Tuesday, therefore, the board de clined to'allow agents to appear when taking evidence of some 40 odd ap plicants for two settlement leases. Mr A. Jamoson, who appeared for a num ber of the applicants, held that as only the opinion of the Crown solicitor was before them tlie board iiad no right to stand l)y it. He ui-ged that the board ...

The Queen and Young O'Brien. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 14 February 1901
I lie Queen and Young O'Brien. | W. Ellard writing to the Editor of ' Tlie A. C. World' says : — About forty five years since a matter cropped up which tested the nobility of Queen Victoria's nature, and possibly few persons now living heard of it, or if they heard ot it remembers it. In 1848 William Smith O'Brien, with six other 'Young Irelanders,' was tried for high treason, convicted, and sentenced to transportation for life. Eight years after, say in 1856, a son ofMr Smith O'Brien distinguished himself either at Oxford or CambridgeUniversity Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, was requested on this occasion to confer the honours upon the successful graduates. She con sented to do so, and when the day arrived she attended, accompanied by Prince Albert and the Prince of Wales. A large number of the nobility were present to witness the Queen presenting the honours. The gentleman who presented the successful graduates to her Majesty when presenting young O'Brien, added — 'And now Mr. O'Bri...
Self Registering Rain Gauge. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 14 February 1901
Self Registering Rain Gauge. At the recent meeting of the British Association was des cribed a new self registering rain gauge, the invention of Mr. W. T. E. Binnie. The contrivance resembles the conventional type of rain gauge with the funnel for collecting the rain, but the neck of the funnel is smaller in j diameter at the top than at the bottom. By this means the inventor contends he is able to let the rain pass from the receiving funnel into the re ceptacle below in drops of water of approximate size, owing to the laws of surface tension by which the formation of drops is governed. As each drop falls from' tne funnel into the vessel beneath, the impact of it makes and breaks the contact of a small electrical machine, which records each drop upon an automatic record, made to revolve upon a drum at a regular set speed.

The Boer War. Loud ROBERTS'S DESPATCHES. MUCH SHARP CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 14 February 1901
The Boer War. Loud Roberts's Despatches. Much Sharp Criticism. Much light is thrown upon the principal features of the war in the special despatches which the War Office has now published. They fill two vol umes, and cover the entire period of Lord Roberts's com mand, from the date of his arrival in South Africa on January 10, 1900, to his departure eleven months later 011 December 1 ] . Lord Roberts's despatches graphically describe the terrible obstacles which confronted him when he assumed the command of the British forces. The army corps organisation had ceased to exist, having become disintegrated directly it was subjected to a severe practical trial. Not only had the army corps failed, but Lord Roberts found himself virtually without trans port. There was, he wrote, in reality no organised transport corps, and before he began his advance this defect had to be remedied. A transport corps was organ ised, and the despatches show that Lord Roberts then deli berately encountered th...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE RIVERINA TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 14 February 1901
TOTUE EDITOR OF THE RlVERlNA TlMES. Sir, — On the 12th inst. I paid to the Crown Lands Agent at Hay the ' sum of £1S3, lieing balance of pur chase money on eighty acres of land which I bought at auction from the Crown on the 7th November last. The price 1 had to pay per acre was £3 Is, and as I, with many others in the Hay district, have applied for reappraise ment of our lands, I deem it my duty to explain to the public why I paid the absurdly high price for the eighty acres above referred to. I am the owner of 3800 acres of c.p. . and c.I. land on Canoon run, three-quarters of a mile from the 3Iurrumbidgee 'river. I had no frontage to the river, and as ? the land between my holding and the river belonged to the Crown, I applied througlit the District Surveyor for a strip of eighty acres, which would give me a small (very small, indeed) frontage to the river. The District Surveyor, seeing the reasonableness of iny re quest, recommended that an area of eighty acres be sold by auctio...
