THE LOAN ESTIMATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 22 May 1875

THE LOAN ESTIMATE. The Loan Estimate for 1875 is not a trifle— just one million and a-Iialf sterling, and representing — at four and a-half per cent — an additional interest charge of £67,500. The interest on debentures Sot die year 1875-6 is set down on the Esttmates-m-chief at £278,442, so that should the proposed loan be authorised our annual interest contribution will be close upon £350,000, or considerably more than £2 per bead of die popula tion. The total estimated revenue from Crown Lands for next year is set down at £344,000, or just equivalent to the in terest on the public debt. As a small set off against this heavy interest charge rail ways are expected to yield a. net return of £00,000, but from this £24,000 must be deducted as the loss en telegraphs. The direct cost of die public debt to the colony will therefore be about £284/100 per annum, compensation for which must be looked for in die important benefits conferred upon die colony by railways, telegraphs, and omer p...

THE EDUCATION COMMISSION. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 22 May 1875

THE EDUCATION COMMISSION'. SO. I. Tax Education Commissioners' report lias just come to hand. It is a bulky document, and cannot at present be reproduced m our columns. But the subject of which it treats is already before the Legislature, and hence the necessity that public opinion be directed to it without delay. The evidence taken by the Cora missioneis is voluminous, but happily for the busy reader anxious to attain results, die whole is conveniently utilised by a complete analysis. This is a new feature in parliamentary reports, and possibly a further reform may be practicable in die same direction. Is it essential to print, in exteneo, the evidence ob tained by Royal Commissions and Select Committees? We think not, for a faith fnl analysis of evidence ought to meet all requirements ; and it is important to repress the undue development of die Government Printing department How ever, in regard to (he Education Com mission's report, it is but just to say that in point of clerical...

ON COAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 22 May 1875

ON COAL. I Did yon ever hear that Coal is a hard I snbstancB found in mines, cellars, beef- 1 steaks, «nd Wales? It ia dark in colour j like Niggers or old harness, bat it bnrtts i better than either. Some kinds of Coal are made of flagstones and gas-tar, other* ire composed of yellow day and lamp black. These are inferior in quality and cannot be bomed except in limekQos. I A man once told me that they ought to be bnrned by the common hangman. Coal is not poisonous, and when j taken in email quantities with kidneys ' or bones is gritty, bat not injurious to health. Pieces of it over a pound in weight are however, dangerous when usedas migsSeB. 1%e history of Coal, like that of Mexico and the origin of the late attempt to tax matrhen, is shrouded in gloom. Uaoy writers of good family snd fair education have held that the subject would repay the labour of inquiry ; but ' I am inclined to difier from them, and ' to think that Coal has no history at ; all. Itis worse than useless to tr...
