The Earth's Duration. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 April 1894
The Earth's Duration. Tho present ago of tho~earth haB been placed by Sir William Thomson at 100.000,000 years, while the speculation of olhsis have given muoh larger figures. M. Adolplio d' Assir, who believen such estimates to be . greatly exaggerated, considers tho life of the earth in three poiicds, whioh he terms the igneous or nebula stellar stadium, the stadium of solar illumination or of organie life, and the ettdium cf daikncss, cold and death. Tha firBt — which began with tho detaohmcnt of the terrestrial nebula from the solar, and ended in tho formation of the cryBtal-lino oruet of the globe— he caloulatea from physical Iowa to have been GOO, 000 years in duration. The oeoond— comprising tbe second epoch, and to. close with ex tinotion of tbo sun, embracing the entire oyolo of geological formations— iB found by geological end physiool ovidenco as likely to hove a total length of 25,000,000 years, of which mora than half has poEEed, The third Btadium— storting from tlio en...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 April 1894
Local and General. Progressive. — New Zealand is un doubtedly progressive. The women have the franchise ; they can boast of a lady Mayor ; and -will in time no doubt, send women to tho Assembly. At Mnsterton recently, a number of women indulged in the larrikinistic pastime of ' tin kettling ' a newly married couple, in the small hours of morning. This is merely the stepping stone to a more advanced stage of masculine development, and -we should not be surprised to hear of the women of Maoriland organising cricket, foot ball, and racing clubs for women only. Monkerai. — 'We are pleased to learn that Mr W. Moore, who has a claim near Towns and party at the Monkerai, struck a very rich shoot of gold on Tuesday, at about 80 feet. One piece of gold weighing nearly tour ounces was broken from the quartz. There is considerable excitement at the Monkerai in consequence,- and it is likely that there will be a rush for claims in that locality. The Jerger gold-saving machine imported by Messrs...

Humorous Brevities. ' Brown's position at tho hospital :s no sinecure.' ' You're rightt there has been no sign 0 cure Binee ho went thero.' Ally one who is quick at reparteo must necessarily havo a great response ability. Wo don't advise fooling with tho tariff, but if anything can bo done to removo tho tacks off tho sUirs after tho new carpet is put down, without injury to tho country, it should be done at onco. Iu tho theatre: 'But why do you weep ? The acting is certainly not so touch ing.' ' Excuse me ;I am bewailing the money I paid to come in.' A medical journal tells 'how to lie when asleep.'

The Mining Bill. PASSED THROUGH THE COUNCIL. THE THIRD BEADING CARRIED. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 April 1894
The Mining Bill. PASSED THROUGH THE COUN OIL. The Third Reading Carried. The Mining on Private Lands Bill came up in the Council aud passed its final stageB. Dr MacLaurin moved the third reading of the bill. Dr. Bowker moved, as an amend ment, that tbe tbird reading should be an order of tbe day for this day six months. The r-easuro was, he con tended, wrong from every point of view, calculated to do great wrong, while it was questionable if it would confer any benefits. He was not sure that gold was a royal metal, and ob jected to interference with the rights ?of property which it contained. It wan a measure both dishonest and irreligious. Mr. John Smith spoke at length in opposition to tbe bill, which he characterised as iniquitous and anti Ehglisb, interfering with privato property, and not likely to realise the expectations formed of it. Mr. Combes said the bill was one of confiscation, utterly unjust and un British and unworthy of the country. He objected to landowners being su...

LAND FOR SELECTION. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 20 April 1894
LAND FOR SELECTION. 7o the Editor. Sir, — Is it not paradoxical to fiud Mr. Copoland declaring, in faco of the cry for throwing open tho Crown Lands in the Central Division, that there were six miljion acres al ready open to selection. 'Why are not these six million acres taken up? No doubt some of the land is inferior, but there must be much that is suit able for farming purposes. 'Why should not the latter become occupied before disturbing the leasehold areas It can only arise from' the number of bona fide selectors being limited, and the land is practically of no use to the professional land selector. The very fact tbat there aro six million acres of land open to selection is the strongest possible argument against any further increase of the area. 'What Mr. Cope land should do,istohave these lands sur veyed, classified, and divided into suit able areas, the prices or rentals being governed by circumstances, and not allow an additional aore to be thrown open to selection until th...
