Mr. J. W. Farlow, J.P., occupied the chair, and Mr. George Nicholls, J.P., the vice-chair. On the immediate right and left of the Chairm...

The Hawkesburg Herald. WINDSOR, FRIDAY, MAY 16, 1902. A LESSON IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902
WINDSOK, FBID.VY, MAY Ifi, 1902. A LESSON IN LOCAL GOVERN MENT. The conclusion of the treaty with Japan was a masterstroke of di plomacy on the part of the British Cabinet, and one which cannot fail to be far roaching in its effects and results, lt will rank in history with Disraeli's purchase of the Khedive's shares in the Suez Canal. Hut it is not our present object to deal with foreign politics, but to direct atten tion to a subject which has been much discussed in New South Wales for many years, concerning which politicians have been profuse in their promises, election after elec tion, but regarding which nothing has been done. We refer to the question of local government. Re specting this we have-extraordinary as it may seem-much to learn from our new allies. The history of the Japanese, like that of many other nations, is lost in fable. It extends back to a borderline beyond which there are no authentic records. And ^^riii^^notwithgtandin^^Üiat^th« Japanese claim to liare auth...

REDUCTION OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902
REDUCTION OF MEMBERS. The reform movement is growing and spreading day by day. The economy in State administration preached as a set-off against the cost of federation should have been put into practice long ere this. Victoria has set the pace in the matter. Briefly summarised from a speech nude by Mr. Peacock last Saturday night, their lines are as follows : Instead of a Legislative Council of 48 members he proposes one of 30 ; the 1*5 members of the Assembly are to be reduced to 00 : the number of Ministers is to be lessened from 10 to f>, and their salaries are to be per manently cut down from £12,240, which was the total in 181U, before the changes began, to £(î,400, or i nearly half. Members of the As- j sembly will still be paid at the £300 j a year rate, but £10,500 will be saved annually by the dismissal of 35 members. That 's the skeleton of the Victorian Government's pro posal. Though somewhat slower to move, New South Wales is also getting np steam in the matter. A mee...

RIVER NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902
j RIVER NQtfes. The contractors of the new bridge at St. Albans are making great pro gress with the work. A daughter of Mr. J.! R. James, the popular Lower Portland school teacher, has been very ill during the week. Dr. Callaghan had to be sent for on Saturday evenihg last, but we are pleased to hear she is recovering. Mr George Books, of Webb's Creek, rowed to Windsor this week with a load of maize for a Windsor buyer. He received Sydney market price for it, and saved freight and high commission. Other farmers along the river contemplate sending their grain to Windsor, where there is always a ready market. Miss Mary Books, daughter of Mr. G. Books, of Webb's Creek, sent three very fine oil paintings to the H.D.A. Show this week, including a picture of the ruins of the old Church of England at Wiseman's Ferry. Miss Books has been learning painting from one of Sydney's best artists for a long time, and her pork is a credit to herself and her teacher.

Things I've Seen. (For the "Herald.") [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902
Things I've Seen. (For the .. Herald.") 1 saw the golden orb of day Sink slowly in tha distant west ; I saw the hope ot life decay And disappear like all the rest. Saw all my hopes fade one by one, The future all seemed dark and drear ; And when evil fortune all had done, Looked proudly on without a tear. Looked proudly on in cold disdain, Smiled coldly on a former dread ; Wc get at last so used to pain That human hearts seem made of lead. Thc brain with bitter thoughts will reel, The vp.vy heart-strings seem to crack, And keener anguish far than steel, Sometimes is found on memory's track. Would that memory could efface The hours hearts pass upon the rack, Tbbt we could once again retrace, And call all former blunders back. Could I play again life's game, believe . The cards, " You bet," I'd often' stack ; I'd hold the joker in my sleeve, The bowers would often leave the pack. 0.1).
