PARRAMATTA'S WEIGHBRIDGE. Some of our local storekeepers are very dissatisfied with the existing Municipal weigh bridge, both as regards its position and the chargo made for its use. Goods coming or going by train may be weighed at the station for 3d and a proper certificate of weight ob tained, whereas, it is alleged, Is. is charged by j the Council, and no proper weight note given, some informal scrap of paper answering the purpose.

THE WEATHER. Terrible winds and bush fires have, during the last eight dAys, added to tbe trials which our fruitgrowers and farmers have had to en dure. From Thornleigh to Smithfield and Fairfield, from Bankstown to Galston, comes tho en ma n]A f.U nt n.ll„n{ well nigh crashed with ibise new troubles. . Our Thornleigh correspondent writes, under date the 26th inst., stating that the wind was something very bad on Sunday, and nearly as trying on Monday. The orange trees looked as though they had been beaten, and the fruit lay on the ground incasesful. From our Baulkham Hills sentinel a like story comes— of trees i denuded of leaves and fruit. Bush fires raged at Toongabbie; and on Tuesday night the flames, leaping up on the Hills to the north, , formed a terribly wierd but striking sight. At I Finlayson's slaughter-yard, to tbe south-west of Parramatta, the fire destroyed a good deal of fencing on Sunday ; and an old man camp ing near the spot had a narrow escape.

The Policy for the Temperance Party. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 7 September 1895

The Policy for the Temperance ? Party. TO THK EDJTOB. Sin, — At every election people very naturally fight for the best improvement ' immediately obtainable. As a natural consequence, the Temperance party always is split up into antagonistic sections, according to the views of its members on other questions. In other words, the Temperance party usually vanishes before it gets to the ballot box, and only comes together again after the fight is over. This need not be. Granted that the only care for the drink evil is the entire national prohibition of the manufacture and sale of intoxicants, the proposal ifi never seriously entertained at election time, because It has no support behind ' it to make it feared by tbe lioenoed victuallers. A proposal to take ever so short a step in that direction, doegmuchxnoretb make the pnblicana co-operate with the temperance reformers in the very necessary work of educating public opinion on the question. Bnt much more con be done. It is unjust to exp...
