Decentralisation Will Kill Sydney Octopus COUNTRY MAN'S PLEA. Raises Question of Taking Away Sydney's Power Over Country Areas. (By W. Ager, of WMteman's Creek.) To save the work that has already been expended upon the nnfinished sec tions from further deterioration, and to establish the whole venture as a work able proposition, benefiting the area through which ' it runs, and earning something as a set-off against the in terest accruing upon the vastly inflated capital cost, the North Coast Railway must be finished. Although this railway must be completed at once, the urgent, need of the North Coast and inland areas is railways direct into the interior, io connect with the seaboard and deep sea ports. Works of this description (in conjunction with the development of other possibilities of the area by the establishment of the Gorge scheme) opening up of land, timber resources and mining wealth, making the estab lishment of secondary industries ex change of trade between districts, a...

TOBACCO IN THE NORTH-WEST [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 16 May 1919
TOBACCO IN THE NORTH-WEST At Gunyan, in the Bonshaw district, Mr. H. F. Elwyn had 165 acres of to bacco under crop, and, despite the ab normally dry season, he estimates tin value of the crop at £10,500. The to bacco harvested was between 70 and 80 tons. Last year Mr. Elwyn realised Is. 7y»(i. per lb. for ordinary sun-dried leaf. Had the leaf been flue-cured, it would have been saleable at a • much higher figure. From this instance alone, it is clear that the Ashford-Texas-iBou shaw districts are suited to the cultiva tion of tobacco, and all that is needed is a little energy to make tobacco-growing a profitable industry.
93 THOUSAND MILLION CUBIC FEET WATER FOR £1,000,000 Gorge Scheme Would Hold Over Double Burrinjuck's Quantity at Half the Cost. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 16 May 1919
93 THOUSAND MILLION CUBIC FEET WATER FOR £1,000,000 Gorge Scheme Would Hold Over Double Burrinjuck's Quantity at Half the Cost. During Mr. Ashford's visit to Grafton tho Gorge scheme lor pro viding a huge storage for the gene ration of electric power on a scale hitherto unknown in Australia was discussed with Dr. Earle Page, the originator of the scheme. The proposed clam would impound 93,000,000,000 cubic feet of water at an estimated cost of less than £1,000,000. This is two and a half times as great a volume of water as that of Burrinjuck, and at a cost of less than half. A feature of the scheme placed be fore the Minister was that regarding the manufacture of nitrates, especially in connection with" irrigation possibili ties in the north-west. Dr. Page claims that the adoption of the scheme would enable a large portion of the artesian belt to be irrigated. At each borehead the electric power would enable nitric, acid to be made on the spot, dissolved in the water, and carried aw...

PASSING OF PIONEER. Mr. Robert Bugden, one "of :the grand old pioneers of the -Mid-Richmond, passed away at Coraki on .May 1. aged 75 - years, after a - short illness. The snapping of this link with the past not only plunges many homes in mourning, but has evoked universal re grit throughout the district, for, as it has been truly said, the late Robert Bugden &nbsp; was, all his life, one of Nature's &nbsp; gentlemen. A man of commanding stature and fine physique, endowed with all the qualities of heart and mind that go to win the esteem of .his fellow men. He was a familiar figure in and around Coraki for upwards, of half a century, and it is a striking testimony to his &nbsp; character that he carried with him right to the end the profound-respect of the whole community and. the; deep &nbsp; affection of those more intimately as sociated with him. An enemy,he never made, for no kindly or more generous" man ever breathed, and, while the full extent o...

Of Interest to Women, The Vogue of the Cape. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
1 (?jl %(§=hz, Interest to Women, By Mother o' Pearl IS- ~ The Vogue of the Cape. Largo capes, which were lirst intro duced on the stage in Paris, and were fashioned in brilliant colors and of rich brocades, have taken the popular fancy for street and evening wear both '«n Europe and America, and are likely to find favor in Australia also, as there is no denying their practical use as well as their sartorial beauty. Navy blue gabardine was the basis of one seen recently, w'hich had a full back falling' away from a band of dark blue tricolette under a big shawl col lar, which was really a tight little cape, banded with the tricolette, giving it a quaint m/id-Victorian air. One side of the cape hung quite straight, while the other was becomingly draped to wards the front. Long slits, forming the armholes, were bound with silk braid, and one caught a glimpse of a beautiful dark blue silk lining. Usually, however, a color contrast for the lining is preferred, rose-color with navy blue b...

MR. WM. ARCHIBALD WAS FIRST GORGE ENTHUSIAST. Gave Life for Scheme. Nephew of Originator Refers to Asticle Published in December, 1912. Under the pen-name of Remembrance a correspondent writes from Terrigal to the S.M. Herald in the following terms:— In your issue of December 36, 1912, appeared an eulogistic article ou the above gigantic scheme, and also a fit ting tribute to the sacrifices made by Mr. Wm. Archibald, in whose fertila brain the scheme was first thought out. Ycu mention that Mr. John Mac-Fa? lane, the Clarence River Member of that time, enthusiastically took up my late uncle's, Mr. Archibald's, scheme, and that the dimensions of his proposed darn or inland lake were equal to ap proximately 10 times the volume of water of Port Jackson. The utilisation of the generated power for alluvial tin sluicing, and for lighting purposes for a large .area of country, are also, men tioned. In your article of 1912 you mention that "Mr. Archibald (who was the pioneer originator of th...

Our Food Supply. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
Our Food Supply. At an official luncheon given last week on board the latest addition to the fleet of State trawlers in Sydney Harbor to mark the placing in com mission of that vessel, the Chief Secre tary, Mr. Fuller, waxed eloquent on the success which had attended the opera tions of the State ' trawlers since they began fishing, and quoted figures 10 show how greatly the supply of whole some and nutritious food at cheap rates to the people had been contributed to by the branch of the Chief Secretary's Department that is supervised by Mr. Stead. Few will deny the claim made by Mr. Fuller that the industry has been carried on with results greatly beneficial, if not to the people of New South Wales as a whole, unquestionably to those of Sydney and its environs. As it now has been firmly and solidlv established and is the source of cheap food to the "public of the metropolitan area, what is required is an extension, without delay, and on businesslike lines, of the advantages derivabl...
CENTRAL MINE. A Colliery in the Making. AUSTRALIAN MACHINERY USED. Best Equipped Colliery in Southern Hemisphere. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
CENTRAL MINE. A Colliery in the Making. AUSTRALIAN MACHINERY USED. Best Equipped Colliery in Southern Hemisphere. (By Abernethy.) The developing of the Central Colliery has been considerably retarded owing I to the bulk ot' the intended plant beiiig | lost through submarines whilst being shipped from Britain. Following this loss came the knowledge that the pro curing of a duplicate plant was impos sible until after the war. It was this knowledge, writes Aber nethy in the Cessnock Eagle, that prompted the Caledonian Collieries Ltd. to undertake the bold task of endea voring to equip a modern colliery from machinery and material procurable in Australasia. Some idea of this material mobilising task may be gathered from the fact that machinery already assembled re presents five different States, and that Central is expected to be the best equipped colliery in the Southern Hemisphere and will assist greatly to wards making Cessnock the Birming ham of Australia.

The Trans-Atlantic Flight. [Newspaper Article] — The Voice of the North — 30 May 1919
The Trans-Atlantic Right It is easy to understand the feeling* of deej) gratification, felt by people in all parts of the world, when the news was flashed over the wires that Hawker and Grieves were safe. Seldom has mankind been so stirred to regret and disappointment as when the'announce ment was made that the two. gallant young aviators were missing, and as each day went by without the recei'pt of any intelligence as to their where abouts, the gloom caused by their dis appearance grew deeper and the sorrow more heartfelt. Then, when word came that the intrepid navigators of the air had been picked up by a tramp steamer and were in good health, the jubilation and relief experienced were of a surety more intense and widespread than were ever before evoked by the rescue of any other two men. That this was so i? not to be wondered at, for all the cir cumstances surrounding the starting of the two plucky aeroplanists on their long and dangerous journey, their dis appearance, and their ...
