MR. THOMAS ROSE AT WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
MR. THOMAS ROSE AT WINDSOR. On Thursday evening Mr. Thomas Rose, Pro- tectionist candidate for the Hawkesbury, ad- dressed a crowd of between 600 and 700 persons from the Royal Hotel, and received a most en- thusiastic reception. Mr. W. Linsley, J.P., occu- &nbsp; pied the chair, and in a brief but pithy speech introduced the candidate. He hoped Mr. Rose would be elected, and felt sure that he would represent the district as it ought to be repre- sented. Mr. Rose, on appearing, was loudly applauded. He came before them as a defeated candidate, but it was no disgrace to him, considering the way he had polled at Argyle. On personal grounds no objection could be taken to him, he felt sure. He was aware of the great battle he would have to fight, but if it was not worth fighting it was not worth winning. It had been said that the Hawkesbury was a pocket borough for Mr. Bow- man. They did not want any man to have a pocket borough, but they wanted the best man always to win. He wa...
A Few Notes on Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
A Few Notes on Irrigation. [WRITTEN FOR THE GAZETTE BY G.C.] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; My remarks, thus far, have been mainly on the question as it concerns us locally ; and before 1 touch upon national irri- gation I will quote from the Royal Com- mission's Report for 1887, as affecting this district. I quote the whole para- graph : The evidence obtained by us regarding the bene- ficial effects of irrigation in the Valley of the Hawkesbury was conclusive on this point. As the average rainfall at Windsor, obtained from returns extending over a period of 23 years, is nearly 33 inches, and that at Richmond, found from the records of the last 5 years, 26 inches, it might be inferred that the want of irrigation would not be felt. It must, however, be borne in mind that a good average rainfall is not by itself sufficient proof that irrigation is not necessary, The true position of the district in this respect is not known till it is ascertained : First, what are the pr...
The Great Comet of 1882. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
The Great Comet of 1882. Part of a work by Dr. Heinrich Kreutz, en &nbsp; titled " Untersuchungen uber das Cotmetensystem, 1843 I, 1880 I. and 1882 II," has just been issued from the Royal Observatory, Kiel, Holstein. It is a quarto volume of 110 pages, and contains a discussion of all the published observations of the &nbsp; celebrated comet of 1882, which, many of your readers will remember, presented a magnificent spectacle in the morning skies of October and November of that year. Dr. Kreutz's memoir promises to be a classical one in astronomical literature, and it is, moreover, locally interesting, as it contains a thorough discussion of all the Windsor observations, extending from September 8th, 1882, to March 2nd, 1883, which have come out of the ordeal remarkably well. These obser vations were made with the 4 ½ inch equatorial long before the acquisition of the larger instru- ment. Full justice is done to Windsor, inasmuch as in addition to the employment of ...
Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 9 February 1889
Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) POLICE COURT.—On Thursday at the local court there were four cases called on, but the parties not appearing they were struck out—they were from the Kurrajong ; Mr. C. S. Guest, J.P., officiated. On Friday there were eleven small debts cases tried, but these were of no public importance. A prohibition was ordered to issue to restrain licensed publicans and others from serving spirituous drink to Dennis Handley for a period of 12 months. The complaint was laid by Handley's wife. MEMORIAL TO THE LATE MR. DALLEY.—A sub- scription list for this object is in the hands of the Clerk of Petty Sessions, at the Court House, and anyone desirous of placing their names upon it will be received with pleasure by that official. An official report of the first meeting convened by Sir John Robertson may also be seen.
MESSRS. CARRUTHERS AND CULLEN AT RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
MESSRS. CARRUTHERS AND CULLEN AT RICHMOND. On Monday evening Messrs. Curruthers (Canterbury) and Cullen (St. Leonards) spoke to a very large crowd from the Royal Hotel, Rich mond, the Mayor, Mr. James Onus, being in the chair. Mr. Bowman was present, and a large number of ladies occupied seats on the balcony. Mr. Carruthers spoke very ably, and said among other things that if the farmers of this district wanted anything it was that the waterway of the Hawkesbury should be opened up to Wind sor, and railway freights be reduced. He had been round lllawarra and the farmers there did not want Protection ; they had protected them** selves by starting co-operative mills, &c., and they even wanted the duties off butter and cheese. Mr. Bowman had been a good loyal representative. (Cheers.) He was a native of the district, a man of education, who was one of the first Bachelors of Art in Sydney University, and a man who never took part in the objectionable disturbances in the House. H...
THE NOMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
THE NOMINATION. On Monday last fully 600 persons assembled at the Court House, Windsor, when the nomination of candidates for the Hawkesbury electorate took place Besides the candidates, Messrs. Bowman and Rose, there were present : Messrs. J. Car ruthers, H Tnylor, and \V H. Holborow, M's.P. Mr. J. B. Johnstone, Returning; Officer, read the notice convening the gathering. The Hon. W. Walker. M L.C.. came forward and said it seemed to fall to his lot to open the ball. He thought he had long ago got out of these things, but, like the old war-horse, he sniffed the battle from afar and came to the front once more. It was 12 years since be had the privilege and pleasure of first proposing Mr. Bowman. He was returned then by a triumphant majority, and he (the speaker) hoped the same result would occur this time. He knew no reason why Mr. Bowman should be thrown over by an unknown person who had been rejected by another constituency, and who had no stake in this constituency. (Interrup ti...
MR. ROSE AT RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
MR. ROSE AT RICHMOND. Mr. Rose addressed a very large assemblage at Cobcroft's Hotel. Richmond, on Saturday night, and received a vote of confidence. Colonel Hol borow, M.P. for Argyle, occupied the chair, and stated that he was a Freetrader, but had con sented to preside for his friend, Mr. Rose, who was a gentleman and a young man of brilliant qualities. Mr. Rose spoke at some length, and made a good impression. He traded largely on the Australian sentiment, advocated agricultural colleges, technical education, the establishment of a Department of Agriculture, the irrigation of the Hnvkesburv Valley. All through, Mr. Rose was fairly well received. Mr. Yeo moved a vote of confidence, which was carried. Mr. Chanter also spoke at some length.
THE MINISTER FOR MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
THE MINISTER FOR MINES. On Saturday evening the Hon. J. Chanter, Minister for Mines, visited Windsor, in company with Messrs. A. D. Nelson and Pemell. They were met at the Railway Station by a number of Protectionists, including Mr. Thomas Rose, the Protectionist candidate for the Hawkesbury. At 8 o'clock Mr. Chanter addressed about 400 persons at the Royal Hotel. Mr. Reuben Greentree oc cupied the chair. Mr. Chanter said he would like to ask the Pro tectionist not to be disheartened by the news which had arrived during the past few minutes with reference to the elections, as the results had been just as anticipated by the Protectionist party. The question for them to consider was whether the time had not arrived for a change in the fiscal policy. He believed for the first time in the history of New South Wales that they had got those in power who would see that the spirit of decentralisation was fostered, and the whole principle could be embodied in Protection. He affirmed that not...
The Hawkesbury Election. MR. ROSE AT PITT TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
The Hawkesbury Election. MR. ROSE AT PITT TOWN. Mr. Rose visited Pitt Town on Friday evening, and spoke to a large gathering at Baird's Hotel. Mr. Joseph Brown occupied (lie chair, and before Mr. Rose commenced to speak Mr. Joseph Hobbs (a staunch Freetrader) came forward and said that a-rumour had been circulated to the effect that eggs would be thrown at Mr. Rose. He hoped for the honour of Pitt Town that Mr. Rose would be allowed a fair hearing and that nothing of this sort would take place. He was loudly applauded. Mr. Rose spoke at some length and was the recipient at the close of his address of a vote of confidence, moved by Mr. B. Dunstan and seconded by Mr. William Pendergast. He answered a number of questions very satisfac torily.

TYPHOID. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
TYPHOID. While the whole community is deeply ' interested in the alarming spread of this fatal disease, it is amazing to contemplate the fearful amount ol" indifference exhibited with regard to its dangers. Whether it is communicated to the human frame by " MICROBES," " BACILLI," or moro simply speaking, by " GERMS," it seems agreed that improved sanitation is the main remedy for preventing its propagation. This indeed lias been clearly proved by the results obtained in England since attention has been been to strict sanitary law, and it behoves every householder, or occupier of a dwelling, in these colonies, to keep this fact in view, and act accordingly, with respect to his own premises and its surroundings. So long, however, as individuals have no control over their neighbours' proceedings, and the authorities are inactive, so long will liability to the disease be perpetuated. Under these circumstances, we have to look for the next best thing to be done, and bearing in mind that ...

Richmond News. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) MUNICIPAL.-Matters have now settled down to their usual quiet state. The ex citement was great on Saturday last, when the rough state of the poll was declared, showing the defeat of Messrs. Cobcroft and Perry. Their opponents worked hard to secure it prior to polling day. On Wednes day Mr. J. E. Onus was duly elected Mayor for the current year. TUB GENERAL ELECTION.-There is more excitement here over the contest between Messrs. Bowman and Rose than there has been in any previous contest. Mr. Bow man will, it is expected, have a large majority over Mr. Rose at Richmond and Ivurrajong. Meetings have been held almost nightly during the last week, when the various metropolitan members of the new House addressed the electors on behalf of the respective candidates, and any amount of amusement was afforded to the free and inde pendent.

Another Removal. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
Another Removal. We regret to hear that the respected Wesleyan Minister from our town, the Rev. William Hill, will, in April next, be leaving Windsor. The rev. gentleman has been but a short time with us, and had he stayed his full time, three years, which he expected to have done when he came, it would have been too short. Mr. Hill has spent three years in quite a number of towns of our colony, that being the limit of a Wesleyan clergyman's stay, ar.d in one circuit he has spent nine years, by returning twice after six years having elapsed from time leaving. Some reasons of a personal and family nature have operated to induce the rev. gentle men to leave this town at the end of one year. We understand that he was invited cordially and unanimously to continue his labour in Windsor, and that his con gregations in Windsor circuit will much regret his early removal, but that the con ference, in consideration ot his long and friendful service extending over a period of thirty five years...

WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 16 February 1889
WEDNESDAY. Mr. Bowman and Mr. Oarruthers met with a good reception at Riverstone, and the former received a unanimous vote of confidence. Mr. S. E. Lees addressed a large assem blage at Baird's Hotel, Pitt Town, an spoke in favour of Freetrade, receiving a vote of thanks. Messrs. A. D. Nelson, Townsliend, and Kippax spoke at the Royal Hotel in favour of Mr. Rose's candidature. Mr. Nelson was repeatedly interrupted by one indi vidual, who would not be put down. The crowd gathered round, and things were lively for some time. Eventually the police were sent for, and he was quietened for some time, but at the conclusion of Mr. Kippax's speech lie took the " stump," and had to be forcibly removed. Mr. Kippax spoke as a native of the Hawkesbury, and urged the people to go in for a Protective policy. Mr. Townsliend also delivered a very stirring address, and gained a host of friends. Later in the evening Mr. Nelson went to Pitt Town, but when he asked for a patient hearing, some persons an...
