THE BYRON BAY PROPOSAL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

THE BYRON BAY PROPOSAL. THE Ballin J. Pilot, in an. article on the Byron Bay proposal, take-1, a most sensible view of the position -a view that all impartial persons will concur in They do not objrst to improvement at Byron Bay, o." to any other pln:e where the public interest may be s'erired. What the Pilot objects tc-and tl- J is just what we object to-is the sacrificing of such port~, as that of the Eichmond River, and the enormous interests involved to that of any minor place. What we maintain is that the respective interests of the Richmond and of the Clarence are far and away *? ^o great to be sacrificed by any small, but influential, circle of men who have acquired property ia the neighbourhood of Byron Bay. That those great interests of the rivers named are on the verge of being sacrificed is pretty well shown, when, as the chief reason for the Byron Bay proposal put foith by one of the members for the Richmond eiectorai-o, is that £lö.Ol)0 dairy. Surely there are intsrests...

A Shameful Case. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

A Shameful Case. THE -D. D. Gazette says :-" There" is much food for thought in the affiliation ease (reported in the journal here quoted), and a good deal more than meets the ear. In this case the evidence shows that poverty compelled the mother, the only available parent of two young girls, one but fifteen years of age, to go far away for considerable periods to earn her living, leaving them practically to take care of the house. Things were in such a state that a dissolute youth could take this child of fifteen home to her mother's house and stay with her there for hours without fear of interruption. The young girls could come and go as they desired, heedless of the hour. All this meets the ear; there is more for the eye. The mother of the girl signs her depositions in a very neat hand, and the signature of her elder daughter shows she has a fair schooling, but the girl herself cannot attempt to write her own name; she signs with a mark. Is it not impossible that the self respect...

Facts About Colonial Railways. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

Pacts About Colonial Railways. - I AT a meeting of the Public "Works Commit- tee held on Tuesday Mr. Walter Shellshear, resident engineer in the Railways Depart- ment, was the first witness examined. He stated that the Camden tramway was 7£ miles in length and its cost £3S,000. He thought it would have been very much better to have made it a branch railway instead o£ a tramway. He had prepared an estimate to see what it would have cost to reduce the gradient from 1 in 19 to 1 in 30, and he found it would have increased the load 33 per cent., and that the cost would have been £13,000. He looked upon the Camden j tramway as a warning to shun rather than as an example to follow. The difference between the tramway and a light line of railway was that a tram ran along a main road and a railway as a general rule between fences on private property. In America they generally had 3000 sleepers to the mile, whereas here only 2000 were used. The cost of an iron bridge, roughly speaking, was do...

A New Lien Act. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

A New Lien Act. AT the meeting of the Builders and Contrac- tors Association, held last week, Mr. Hutchison, M.P. for Glen Innes, brought forward for discussion the subject of a lien law for the colony. He pointed out the need of a measure for the protection of honest builders and contractors against unscrupulous men engaged in the same trade. A discussion followed, in the course of which the need of a lien law was urged, and many cases related of swindles that had been carried out through the mant of such a measure. It was stated that Mr. Carruthers and Mr. Bruce Smith were in favour of the introduction of such a bill ; in fact, the latter had arranged for carrying out of Government works on lines similar to those for which private contractors were petitioning, and which he had described as most equitable. Some of the speakers were bitter in their denunciations of certain building societies and building syndicates, and also private individuals, through whose bad management many had...

A Water Railway. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

A Water Railway. THE Paris correspondent of the ' Daily News' gives an account of the so-called " Chemin de Fer Gliss- ant," or " Slide Railway," which was tried on the Esplanade des Invalides within the Exhibition on July 20. The new invention is a contrivance for enabling trains to run, by means of water power, at a speed hitherto undreamt of. The train con- sisted of four carriages, affording room for about 100 passengers. The carriages had no wheels, being supported at the corners by blocks of iron, of a size somewhat larger than a brick, which rested upon a double line of iron girders. Having taken our seats and the signal being given, we glided along very gently for the space of a few yards, when suddenly we gathered speed ; two or three tugs were felt, and we were flying on at the pace of an ordinary train, but as smoothly as a boat on the river. The ab- sence of any vibration, shaking, or "tail motion" was wonderful. In a hydraulic train travelling at full speed-that is to s...

Wreck of the Garston. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

Wreck oí the Garston. THE British. Vice-Consul at Tonga has held an inquiry into the causes which led to the wreck of the ship Garston, bound from Sydney to San Fran- cisco, on Starbuck Island. After hearing evidence j the court decided that the casuality was due to an < error in the ship's chronometer, and the certificate of the captain was consequently returned. Captain Pye has made a statement, which gives a j graphic account of the horrors endured by the occu- pants of his boat before they succeeded in reaching land. He says on the 20th day after leaving the wreck only two tins of meat remained and some of the crew became desperate and demanded it. The captain and Bruce (the second mate) resolved to resist any forcible attempt on the part of the crew to take more than the allotted allowance. At this time Annesty (the third mate) lay in the bottom of the boat in an exhausted condition, quite unable to move. When the men threatened to take the food Captain Pye said, " I...

Preying upon Society. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

Preying upon Society. THEBJE are many ways of preying upon ' society. One of the most lucrative is that which has apparently been adopted by a certain "man of straw," a3 Mr. Crick euphoniously called him, a " scoundrel and a rogue," as he also characterised him in the I course of a very brief speech in the Assembly. Theaforesaid " man of straw," ¡ if his accusers are to be relied upon, has I been inviting the public, under the non de plume of a bookmaker well-known to fame, I to send in their contributions to a box at I the Q-.P.O. and invest in a consultation j sweep, under the sweet delusion that their fortune would be made. It was averred that I hundreds of pounds had been contributed by the ever-guillible public to Box No. 16, but that no consultation sweep such as that advertised had ever taken place, and no I dividend had ever been declared. Mr. O'Connor Baid he had no power to in any way punish this man of straw. He had, however, given instructions that he should no longer ha...

Public Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

Public Holidays. Is" some parts of Europe they have a holiday for every saint in the calendar and a saint for every day in the week. "We are gradu- ally coming round to that state of things in New South "Wales. The Premier is not quite sure that the Act dealing with public holidays is a wise one. So at any rate he informed the Assembly when a discussion arose as to the necessity for Thursday being made a public holiday, simply because it was the first day of the agricultural show. Mr. Molesworth had asked the Premier, without notice, on whose application the holiday had been proclaimed, and whether it was not a fact that the Chamber of Commerce had written to the Grover nment protesting against the day being proclaimed a. holiday, which letter had received no reply. The Premier replied that he could not tell on the spur of the moment on whose application the holi- day had been granted, and further, that the letter from the Chamber of Commerce had been received after the holiday had ...

Protection and Single Tax Questions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

Protection and Single Tax Questions. THE debate between Mr. Rose and Mr. Cot- ton on the question as to whether Protection or the Single Tax would be more beneficial to labor proved such a hollow affair that the Free-trade organs are actually ashamed to report a single word o£ it. Mr. Rose showed conclusively that to tax the land which our farmers have to turn into grain, while admit- ting to our market free the produce of the untaxed lands of other countries, would be to make agriculture impossible in New South Wales, and this his opponent was obliged to acknowledge and meet by an ignominious confession that to carry out the Georgian idea under Free-trade was an impossibility. What Mr. Rose did. was to prove to demon- stration that the Single taxers were the political dupes of the Calico party, and out of a mixed audience of over 1000 persons there was not more than a score or so who failed to grasp the whole situation after his exposition of it. Now that Mr. Cotton has been forced...

On Thursday there arrived from the mine six boxes containing sections of the various strata, which show in a concise form the quantity and quality of the seamB of coal and shale passed through.

Saturday's Cricket Matches. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

Saturday's Cricket Matches. THE matches fixed for Saturday afternoon were only partially played owing to the rain, and so far as they did go was not a fair criterion as to which were the superior, teams. CARLTON V. ALBERT.-This match, on the Oval, resnlted in a draw. The game was played in a drenching rain, and the Carltons, who were for- tunate in winning the toss, ran up a large score. The ball was very ?' greasy," and it was impossible for the bowlers to " work " it to the best advantage ; and fieldsman also had difficulty in keeping their footing. The Carltons completed their innings, but only two overs were bowled to the Albert ¿batsmen (1 wicket down, Stuart) when play ceased. The CABLTONS scored as under-C. Krauss 19, J. Laing 15, R.

Maclean Council. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889

Maclean Council. A SPECIAL meeting of the Council (convened by requisition) was held on Friday night last, when all the Aldermen were present. The object was to consider the advisability of sending two delegates to attend the annual session of the Municipal Association, which takes place on the 21th instant, and a very interesting discussion took place upon the subject. Notice of motion has been given by Alderman Bril, of the Goulburn Council to the effect that efforts be made to induce the Govern- ment to include in the new Local Government Bill a clause whereby it shall be enacted that tates raised for municipal purposes shall be levied on land values only, and this motion the Council wish to have supported. Alderman M'MAHON moved " That two delegates be sent by the Council, and their expenses (not exceeding £10 each) defrayed out of the general fund." He was of opinion that it was not fair to Aldermen to be expected to go down to Sydney at their own expense, and he was quite sure...
