It was stated at a meeting of farmers .n tbe subject that npwardi of 2000 acres could be procured within a Tery limited radios. The residents are indignant at the delay in expending the £1000 granted for improving the entrance. The Progress Association have cawed a letter to be written to the manager of the Commercial Bank, Lismore, requesting that a branch be opened on the Brunswick. A petition was also adopted urging that a bridge be erected over Wilson's Creek, on the Brunswiok-Lismore Boad.

Byron Bay Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Byron Bay Scheme. REFERRING to the sum of £162,000 on the Loan Estimate! providing for carrying oat a breakwater at Byron Bay, th« Glen Innes EXAMINER says "Setting aside all other considerations, it is indeed time to abandon this system of committing the country to works of unknown expense by asking for comparatively small votes to start them with. When Sir John Robertson asked the House to vote £25,000 towards building a harbour of refuge at Trial Bay, he was requested to state what it« total cost would be. His characteristic reply may well be appl ed to this Byron Bay proposal, 'God only knows what the total cost is going to be, but we are going to throw £25,000 worth of stone into the sea by way of a start.' The Byron Bay scheme was introduced by Mr. Smith in more euphnistic language, yet the principle of framing alow estimate in order to get a great work started is the same. Compare this inducement of a low estimate for a proposal favonred by Sydney interests with the extravaga...
Bellinger River. WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Bellinger Uiver. WEDNESDAY. DOCK STRIKERS.-A public meeting was held at Fernmount on Saturday to consider the best means of assisting the men on strike in London. A fair number attended, and the Chairman (Mr. A. Black) Messrs. A. Gracie, J. Tyler, and J. Gregg spoke strongly on. the.mattw, and it was resolved to open a subscription list, and form a committee. Messrs. Smythe and. Gregg were appointed treasurer and secretary, and abont £7 was collected at once. "THE NORTHERN COURIER."-The first issue of this newspaper came out this morning, and seems to have fully reached the expectations of its supporters. It is newsy and well printed, and has . assumed a high tone, much to the satisfaction of the general public. OUR BENCH.-A deadlock still continues in the " temple of justice " of the Bellinger ; and busi- ness is greatly inconvenienced. On last Friday an ordinary Court day-several of the magistrates attended in hope of getting the previously post- poned business off; but Mr. Noble ...
Coffs Harbour. WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Coifs Harbour. WEDNESDAY. THE WEATHER has bees" splendid for the last few weeks, bat now there is indication of rain. ' The roads are in a little better condition. The sngar cane looks splendid, and the land here is well adapted for its growth. The s.s. Fernmount is again expected daily, to ship more cedar logs, a large quantity being ready i for shipment to Sydney. Two petitions are in circulation for signature, praying for a Post and Telegraph office here ; and also continuation of the Orara road to Corf's Har- bour. We were astonished at the unsatisfactory report of the Postal Inspector. He is like a 'good many more Government officials, who care but little in recommending to assist new and industrious settlements. A suspicious leaking character was captured by Constable Jones, of the Bellinger, last week, at Albert's selection. He has been on the Orara for some time, and is suspected of being the person who robbed a number of settlers houses. Constable Jones deserves great prais...
Harwood Island. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Harwood Island. I THOEBDAY. IlEGAiTA.--Rùràour has it that steps ure to be taken! to hold a regatta. The committee ' that worked up the last regatta held here were not treated very liberally in respect to donations, for they found when settling np that there was a larg« debit balance to meet, so it is highly improb- able that a committee will now prepare a programme for a day's sport unless they can,get a .officient guarantee that fnnds will be raised. Bowing has gained qufte a monopoly in the sporting world, and we think that lovers of sport should' patronise this effort to bring about a regatta. NEW MILL.-Work has been progressing . very favourably of late, and last week upwards of 3000 tons of cane were crashed, bnt to-day an accident happened through the shaft of one of the rollers breaking, which will be a great drawback, as a new one will have to be supplied from Sydney, before work can be resumed.
Maclean Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Maclean Municipal Council. [ A SPECIAL MEETING was held on Monday evening, to take into consideration the question of enlarging the drain in &lt; Argyle-8treet. now in course of construction. There were present-the Mayor, aldermen Cummins, Kyle, Schwonberg, i and Boderick. Alderman SCHWOXBEBO introduced the matter, and moved the Council into committee. The contractors, he stated, had offered to do the extra work (that is, enlarging the drain from 3x1 to 3x2) for the sum of £Î3 2s, and he thought the charge a reasonable one. After the matter had been fully discussed, it was decided to accept the offer of tie contractors, for the amount named.
Maclean Police Court. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Maclean Police Court. ON Thursday, September 19th, before the P.M. and Messrs. A. Boss and Wm. Elliott, J's.P. Neil M'S wan v. Michael Johnson.-Evasion of toll. Mr. Jenkins for complainant. From the evidence it appeared that defendant and another man drove to the South Arm punt, and arriving there alighted from their buggy, and tied the horse to the fence on the road. They then went on board the punt, and, on being asked for the fare (2s) refuBed to pay. The fact of leaving the horse and buggy on the road to await their return according to several cases cited by Mr. Jenkins clearly seemed a direct evasion ot the toll, but the P.M. refused to allow the contention, and virtually j the case resolved itself into this:-The puntman swore that the passengers refused to pay the toll, and the defendant swore to the contrary. The Bench dismissed the information, Mr. Boss dissent- ing. ¡ Lawrence Larney, riotous behaviour, fined 10s and 4s lOd costs. Emanuel (kanaka), obscene language, 5s or 2...
Echoes and Opinions. RESERVES ALONG RAILWAY ROUTES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Echoes and Opinions. -.-: RESERVES ALONG RAILWAY ROUTES. A CORRESPONDENT of one of the metropolitan papers has been very lavish in his laudation of Mr. BBTJCE SMITH for his action ia reserving land along routes proposed for railway exploration. This gentleman doe3 not probably know that in this respect Mr. Bruce Smith, is only following in the steps of the late Mr. JOHN SUTHERLAND, who. acting upon the suggestion-if we mistake not of a former Member for this district, had the whole of the Crown lands along the course of the pro- jected railways from Grafton to Glen Innes and Inverell, and from Grafton to' the Tweed, reserved from fale. That is why, in a great measure, there is such a meagre population along those routes, added to which, of course, is the exemption from sale of leasehold areas and other reserves in the public interest. Many people have desired to settle upon this reserved land since 18S4, but have been unable to do so-much, we think, to the advantage of the country. ...
THE BYRON BAY VOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
TUE BYRON BAY VOTE. THE Australian Star, with its usual outspokenness upon public affairs, thus referes to an item on the Loan Estimates. This is the more marked in this instance, because the other metropolitan dailies either quietly assent to the proposal or support it. Their action in this respect goes far to prove what many people almost believe, that the Clarence has little chance of fair play from them. To the Clarence people and to the people generally of the north, it is gratifying to find that the Star is watch- ful over the public interest. "On the Loan Estimates nov before the House, is one little item which appears to have a very big meaning. We refer to the vote of £100,690 ' towards a breakwater at Byron Bay.' Members will require to watch this with particular care, as there ison evident design in it to 'sneak through' something of much larger proportions than appears at the first view. In the first place it should be noticed, that this item of £100,000 is asked to be v...
Grafton Police Court. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Grafton Police Court. YESTERDAY, before the P.M. and Mr. A. Lipman. GBEVIOUS BODILY HAEM. Jeremiah Leonard, John Leonard and Thomas Martin on remand, charged with inflicting grevioua bodily harm on John Gallivan, at Southgate. Mr. M'Guren for complainant ; Mr, Donaldson for defendants. Mr. Donaldson applied for a further remand for another week in order to procure the evidence of M'Intyre, a material witness, for whom a Bnbpcena was issued, bnt he could not be found. The P.M. considered that whatever the nature of M'Intyre's evidence might Ix,*prima fae\e case had been made out, and the bench must send the case to a jury ; yet if a postponement were strongly urged he would grant a postponement. Tue case was postponed for another week, defendants being admitted to bail on their own recognizances each in the sum of £20, and one surety of £10. WILLIAM LUCAS v. DAVID PINKERTON.-Claim of £8 Hs Cd for services performed as a hired servant, Mr. M'Guren for complainant ; Mr. Laman foi defen...
Public Meeting at Maclean. The Boundary Question. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
Public Meeting at Maclean. The Boundary Question. ON TÜKSDAV evening last, in accordance with advertisement, a public meeting was held in the School of Arts, Maclean to take into consideration the advisability or otherwise of extending the municipal boundary to Palmer's Channel There was an nnnsna'ly large attendance of Channel and Shark Creek people, who evinced a deep Interest in the matter, and who evidently came prepared to oppose the extension. It is only fair, however, to state that the disorder which was very prevalent throughout the meeting, did net emanate from them, bat (rom a lot of boys who, expecting to see a lively scene, did all in their power to promote one. The howling and shrieking which wu indulged in, only too frequently, reminded one more of a wild beast show than anything el-e. The MAYOR of Maclean, as convener of the meeting occupied the chair, and introduced the subject for discussion, after apologising (or the absence of Messrs. 8. See and T. Page (of : Graf...

The Hinister and our Raliway. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
I The Hinister and our Raliway. ' I SIR.-Such an unwarrantable, and therefore unfair, statement as that of Mr. Bruce Smith's, the Minister for Works, to the people of these districts, through their Parliamentary representative-that the Graf ton-'-ilen Innes authorised line of railway is imprac- ticable-is calculated to set people thinking, whether in these days, in this free démocratie country, the people are to be governed hy the whims and fads of ministers, or whether ministers are not the servante of the people, authorised and appointed to administer the affairs of the State in such a way as the people shall choose. In autogratic Russia a great I AM ia apart of the form of despotic Government ; but in democratic Kew South Wales a leader in political life is called into power, maintained and dismissed by the free will of the people. Mr. Bruce Smith may have party ends to serve in denouncing the proposals, or the practicability of carrying them out, if such proposal had not eminate...

CHAPTER V.—THE RATHMERE WESTBAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 21 September 1889
CHAPTER V.-THE HATHMEBE WESTBAYS. UEEAici'AST waa just over at Rathmere. The younger children had left the table, but Mrs. Robert Westray was still in her place at the bead, and her husband, with' a cup of coffee beside his plate, was deep in the newly-cut pages of the Spectator. It was a Saturday morning, and Clifford was at home. He was standing in the low, old-fashioned window, his,hands thrust into his pockets, his face wearing at that moment a vexed and gloomy look. It wa3 seldom a cloud dwelt on Clifford Weatray's face. He was by nature sunny-hearted, sweet-tempered, and ami- able. Everyone loved Clifford Westray ; he had more chums than, any boy in Westborough Grammar School ; the juniors especially looked up to him with'a species of loving adoration. He was a fine, specimen of young England, tall, lithe of limb, and strong of muscle ; but he was not a Westray. There, was no likeness in him to his pale, delicate, nervous father ; he was undoubtedly his mother's son, they said...
