HALF - HOLIDAY MOVEMENT IN BATHURST. We are glad to see that the half-holiday is about to become an established fact in Bathurst. Nearly all of the storekeepers having consented to elope their respective establishments on Wednesday afternoon in each wee'e, commencing the first week in January, 1888. It is to be hoped that the general public will from shopping on Wednesday afternoon. United action is all t*iat is necessary to make the movement a success, and it is hoped that such will not be lacking.

OUR FINANCIAL POSITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1887

OUR FINANCIAL POSITION. I The Parkes Government came into power with an enor mous debt of something over &2.000;000, which grew at a great pace under the management of the Jennings aud the Dibbs Governments. They were pledged to be economical in the administration of affairs, and also 1o do away with a large source of revenue the ad valorem duties. 1 III March last Mr. Burns pave Ins estimate of income and expenditure, and showed that he anticipated a surplus or £yiU,uuU. lo arrive at this, he recommended some j increases on beer and tobacco, to. Now he finds that he \ was considerably out in his reckoning ; for, instead of a surplus of £910,000, he has an actual deficit of 150,000, making him £1,066,000 short of what he expected lo get. Thank Heaven, we have a Government who can do away i with that hug-bear, ad valorem, and at the same time! regulite our expenditure so as to liave a deficit of only | s£15G.000 without imposing new taxation, as against our! late Governments'...

FREE TRADE versus PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 15 December 1887

? ^ ? FREE TRADE versus PROTECTION. It is not our intention to say much on this subject to-day, but the hour seems 'Opportune for a few remarks, because we find times hard — dashed hard. — and a good market very difficult to find for our prodnco. Last year's crops were almost entirely lost in this district through getting too much rain at the very tin:', wh^n we wanted fine weather. The bulk of the crops this year do not promise to be any too good. The result is that money has been scarce, and is likely to be more an amongst the chief pupporters of this city. When th-re has been a partial failure of the crops, the prices generally rise, and although the yield lias not been so great, yet the return to thfi pro ducer does not get far behind, because of the rise which takes place : h-jnee. the farrnsrs do not feel the partial failure much. iiut last year was such an extraordinary one that in many cases the failure was complete, leaving many a farmer an actual loss of money out of pocke...

BEE CULTURE. [BY JAMBS CAMPBELL, SOUTH BATHURST.] ARTIFICIAL SWARMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 16 January 1888

BEE CULTURE. fBY JAMES CAMPBELL, SOUTH JJATHURSt]. ARTIFICIAL SWARMING. ANY method by which the number of swarms are increased other than by allowing the bees to issue from the hive and cluster is termed 'artificial swarming.' Around (ho question of 'swarming ' all the difliculti^s aud trouble of the beekeeper may be said to concentre. The beekeeper must control the impulse even to the extent of taking the question of ' increase ' entirely into his own hands The peculiar surroundings of an apiary, or the circumstances under -ybich the apiarian is compelled to work, may be such that should a swarm issue naturally it is inevitably lost. As, for instance, in the suburbs of a city where land is valuable, the residence with apiary attached stand* on a quarter-acre lot. Natural swarms would be almost c rrain to cluster on a neighbouring allotment, from which, likely enough, the apiarian might be excluded by (he fear of a trespass action.

The Lowest Record in Working Auriferous Quartz. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Post — 16 January 1888

The Lowest Record in Working Au riferous Quartz. An American contemporary (the Mining and Scientific \ News) gives figures which go to show that quartz can be i mined in California for 37£c. (l^d) per ton, and crushed J for 23c. (H4-2) per ton. This, it states, has been accom- ; plished, not with a small test run, but with nearly #CO0 i tonB of stone. Though the gross value of the stone was only 1.16 dol. (4s lOd) per ton, it showed a net profit of 56c, (2s id per ton. A result like this cannot fail to be deeply interesting to quartz miners, and we give the details in our contemporary's words :— ' This record was made at the Spanish mtn*5, Washington township, Nevada county. The mine is being worked under lease by F. W. Bradley. It has been in difficulty, and now the lessees must make a monthly statement, under oath, to the dif ferent creditors, to whom certain portions of the monthly profit go. The sworn statement for last month shows the following figures : — - MINE. Run : 22 days...
