THE WOODBURN-C0HATSWORTH ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 18 March 1887

TOE WOODBURNCHATS WORTH ROAD. At the risk of wearying our readers we agaitv reiterate that there is no part of the colony as badly off in the matter of Roads as the Richmond, and more par ticularly is this the case with regard to that - main avenue for mails and traffic between Selman's mill on the Clarence and Woodburn on the Richmond. At the present writing traffic is almost suspended, and miles of the road are not only submerged, but in a highly danger ous condition, for want of proper care and attention at the hands of the Depart ment. As we before stated, this is the main avenue for traffic between two very important centres— the lower Clarence, embracing the ocean traffic, and the whole of that portion of the Richmond River below Casino. We note that steps are already being taken this session for for the proper formation and maintenance of roads above Casino, and we intend very shortly .to impress, in no feeble manner, on the minds of our members the absolute necessity for oth...

THE PEOPLE'S ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 18 March 1887

THE PEOPLE'S ESTATE. I One of the most important matters affecting the prospority of the colony is some, remedial measures for the present circumlocutory and eminently unsatis factory method of dealing with the estate of the people, anil it is gratifying to note that even thus early in the life of the. present Ministry some efforts are being made in t his direction. New South Wales seems . to be peculiarly unfortunate in having at various epochs, from 1861 downwards, brought into existence land laws that were vaunted as the nearest possible approach to a land la.w,millenium, but wjiish experience quickly proved to be circunilocntory ' in their - action, cumbrous in' their working, and genuinely obstructive to fair settlement on the landk in the colony. ? Two or three issues ago we published a letter from a correspondent . dealing with the working of the Land Act in this district) and doubtless thousands of similar cases exist, in other parts of the col.ny. Our correspondent says tha...

The JHlectlou of IHr. tf. K*. Ahbott, I A vory unusual incident occurred in tho Legislative Assembly yesterdny, in con sequcnco of tho non-roceipt of tho writ relating to the election for Wentworth. Mr. J. P. Abbott, one of tho monitors returned for that electorate, claimed to bo sworn and to tako his scat in tho House, notwithstanding that tho writ had not been received from tho returning officer certifying to Mr. Abbott's election ; and in the end he administered the oath to himself. He did not, howevor, sign his name on the roll of members, and he was not rccognised as a sworn member by the clerk of the Assembly. Ilis name did not appear upon tho printed list of members, and will not, we are informed, until he is either again sworn or until some action in the matter is taken to determine the real position in which he stands.

Trial of a Stump Extractor. On Saturday a trial of the Little Demon stump extractor, built by Hudson Bros., 'of Sydney, and which was on view at the recent Port Macquarie show, took place in the presence of a large number of farmers and other persons. Great interest .was manifested in the trial. The first test was applied to a stump about 18 inches in diameter. This was removed with apparent ease, and afterwards a large black butt stump, three feet in diameter; received attention. Several fruitless attempts were made to uproot this for-; midable forest king. Those present; promised to purchase machines if the. tree in question was removed, conse-: quently much interest was taken in the trial. On account of the chain encircling the stump slipping oft at every trial tho attempt proved a failure. 'JHlcse present, however, had ocular demonstration that the machine was equal to the task, for the stump was lifted several inches, and the chain then slipped. Another test was applied on a 2-...

An Extraordinary Will Swindle. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 25 March 1887

An Extraordinary Will (Swindle. Canon Bagot, who some time ago went over to the United States to investigate the truth of a statement that a Mr. Moore, of Denver, had died, leaving £50,000 to the Irish Protestant Church, nowconsiders it to have beena well-planned scheme to obtain money by false pret ences, and blames the Foreign Office, particularly its acting consul at Denver, for the mode of inquiry pursued. The alleged swindler is a Mr. Keegan, a Den ver lawyer, and the Foreign Offica are charged with confining all their inquiries to the. swindler himself. Lord Roseberry assured Canon Bagot the statements were true. The expenses incurred amount to £500, and Canon Bagot now suggests that application should bo made to the Government to reimburse this out of the Church surplus. Some £300 is also wanted to prosecute Keegan, a lawyer, the concoctor of the fraud, for forgery.

England who have the same capital, but' are in a like difficulty, and have. not been brought up to any profession. ?

Therein, you .will find some thousands of fact,- and not one of fiction.

Then two diminu . tive youngsters, each only six years of age, were brought forward for systematic nil lifting. Though not much higher than the attorney's table, they had exhibited re riiarkable precocity in their pilfering raids, their .modus operandi being for one to remain on watch outside while the other van into a shop and rifled the till.
