Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889
j Political and Social Letter. ! (.From our Special Correspondent. J ~ --? DUBING two evenings, the Legislative Assembly has exercised its mind on the amendments in the Land Bill made by the Legislative Council. It has agreed with some, but disagreed with others. Those it has disagreed with are deemed by the Upper House to be the most important it effected, and probably it will refuse to fall in with the Assembly in regard thereto. Should that be the case, the Bill will be involved in danger. There ÍB likely, at any rate, to be a conference between the two Houses. For many reasons it would be a deplorable circumstance if the Council resolved to stand out against the Assembly. For one thing, it i might cause an appeal to the country on the Land question. THE Payment of Members Bill is now the law of the land, for it received the Governor's signature thereon yesterday morning ; so from this day the representatives will be in receipt of £300 a year for their services. The money will be...
The Minister for Works and the Guyra-South Grafton Railway. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889
The Minister for Works and the Guyra-South Grafton Railway. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. SIB.-I notice by this morning's paper that the Minister for Works has had all the lands on the route of th", proposed line of railway between Guyra and South Grafton reserved for railway purposes, Mr. Smith has in this case again been courageous in acting upon his convictions, without being unduly influenced as to how political or popular prejudice may affect him. It is quite probable that strong opposition, both on the part of members of Parliament and from populated districts, will be brought to bear against this action of the Minister, and on the other hand the Minister may find him- self supported, outside the department, only by a few gentlemen who have no axes to grind. It will be argued that the proposed line will interfere with works already partly advanced, and with promises already mad«, and that interests already vested in view of these works will suffer. But above all such local cons...
Colonial Industries. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 September 1889
Colonial Industries. IT is decidedly of great importance to this colony that its natural resources should be developed. There is, however, a tendency to depreciate tmything of colonial produc- tion, and to conclude from the mere fact that it is colonial that it must be inferior to the imported article. It is well known that on our extended coast line fishing grounds are abundant, and it is also agreed that the developement of the fishing and fish-packing industry is exceedingly desirable. The recognition of this fact is indicated by a motion in favor of the encouragement of deep sea fishing recently brought forward in Parliament by one of the members. It may not be known to many that an effort is already being made to pack our own coastal fish in the American style, and that already a considerable quantity has been distributed throughout the colony. Such is the case, however. We have received and tried a sample of the pack of the Clarence River Co-operative Canning Company, whose wo...

Late Colonial Telegrams. KEMPSEY, SATURDAY. THE rainfall for the week is 271 points, and for the last 24 hours 207 points.

The Opera "Pinafore." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889
The Opera *. Pinafore." j THE reproduction of the well-known opera " Pina- fore."' at the Theatre, on Wednesday evening1, was highly creditable to the lady and gentlemen per formen», and the management ; and the large audi- ence included many prominent members of the institutions (North and South Grafton Schools of Art) for whose benefit the entertainment was given. . The scenery was that u?ed on a previous occasion, ; in which there was proof of ability shown by the 'artist, Mr. Walter Stevenson. The costumes exhi- bited the good taste of Mrs. A. T. Kimpton, and .'the staging would do credit to any com- pany. The music was very good, the orchestra being under the conductorshipof Mr. Frank Kimp 'tbn, a gentleman who takes great interest in any "matter of this kind with which, he associâtes him- self. Mrs. Von"Beutzen presided at the piano; Hiss Mary Hann, second violin ; Mr. H. Jordan (leader of the orchestra)|aud-Mr. Elane, first violins ; and Mr, Frank Lardner, violoncello. The ca...
Does Smoking Protect against Infection. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889
Does Smoking Protect against . Infection. THE Britisîi Medical Journal says :-This subject has been closely investigated by Dr. S. Hajek, of Vienna. Tassinari, of Pisa, has already demon- strated by experiment that tobacco-smoke destroys germs. Hajek found, by consulting statistics, that men who smoked were far less susceptible to the infection than "the remainder of the population during an epidemic of diphtheria. Professor Oser has noted that in a certain outbreak of typhus three times as many women as men were attacked. It has already, been pointed out that men, especially in cities, get more fresh air, as a rule, and follow healthier avocations than women. This fact must not be overlooked during the consideration of Dr. Hajek s theories. Again, very robust men, who resist infection, being "eupeptic," as Carlyle said of Field-Marshal 'Daun, can also tolerate a large amount of tobacco. It is true that Dr. Neudorf er has found that tobacco smoke contains pyridine a destroyer of bac...
Cardinal Manning. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889
Cardinal Manning. THE Syilnnj Mail present their readers with a portrait of Cardinal Manning, whose name ia ju3t at the present moment uppermost in men's minds on account of the services he has rendered in bringing^about .the termination of the unhappy strike' of "the London dock labourers. It will be remembered that about a fortnight ago the Right Hon. James Whitehead, Lord Mayor of London, Cardinal Manning, and Dr. Temple, Bishop of Lon- don, acted as mediators between the dock companies and the labourers. Their efforts were not altogether successful, although they appear to have done much towards solving the difficulty. The men refused to accept the terms to which their leaders had been parties. It was pointed out that, if the strikers persisted in their ref usai to accept the terms agreed upon, the men would most probably forfeit the sympathy of the public. After a delay of a day or two, the men themselves began to see the useless- ness of contiuning a defiant attitude. The stri...

Dangers of Spasmodic Inebriety. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889
Dangers oí Spasmodic Inebriety. No man can preserve a perfect equanimity of tem- per when in a state of severe bodily pain. Even hunger makes one irritable in mind if not in expression. The drunkard under the baleful influence of the seeondary poisons evolved by inebriation, and driven to physical demonstra- tion by the exciting properties of aloohol, seeks Borne pretext for wreaking his fury upon whoever may come in his way. Unconsciously the old hint of jealousy, laid away for ever by the sound mind, flishes, perchance, throngh the imagination of the drunkard ; and thus a groundless excuse may be found for the kind of movement that is related to his savage and brutal instincts. Then comes wife murder and child murder, and then, perchance, drunken stupor and oblivion. How terrible the awaking 1 No memory of the tragedy ia retained. The wretch loved his wife and children. "How could he do such a deed?" This outcome of a drunken spree is far from uncommon, and the steps leading to it...
CULTIVATION OF SMALL HOLDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889
CULTIVATION OF SMALL HOLDINGS. THE area of land that should be alloted to each occupier, as the fair amount he could till profitably and advantageously, is a question that can only be determined by the description of the crops raised. It is, however, noticeable that the large holdings as a rule do not exhibit so high an attainment in cultivation, and the probability is that had the areas been reduced the occupiers would, by endea- vouring to get the greatest returns from their land, not only till it better, but introduce other products that the large holder could not afford time to culti- vate. In continental countries, the agricultural areas are as a rule divided into small holdings, and j the returns of produce are something enormous, ' and though sold at a cheap rate, a very large agri- culturist population is maintained.' We are not I advocating that the lands should be portioned off into such small allotments, but wish to point ont the benefits of efficient farming, which is im...
Myths of the Origin of Women. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889
Myths of the Origin of Women. WOMAN'S first appearance has been a fruitful subject for the legend mongers. The Phoenician myth of creation is found in the story of Pygma- lion and Galatea. There the first woman was carved by the first man out of ivory, and then endowed with life by Aphrodite. The Greek theory of the cremation of women, according to Hesiod, was that Zeus, as a cruel jest, ordered Vulcan to make woman, out of clay, and then indnced the various gods and goddesses to invest the clay doll with a l their worst qualities, the .' result being a lovely thing, with a witchery of . .". mien, refined craft, eager passion, love of dress, * treacherous manners, and shameless mind. The Scandanavians say that as Odin, Viii, and Ve, the three sons of Bor, were walking along the sea beach, they found two sticks of wood, one of ash and one of elm. Sitting down, the gods shaped mau and woman out of these sticks, whittling tho woman from the elm and calling her Emia. One of the stranges...
