Mississippi River Improvements. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889

Mississippi River Improvements. FOB many years the question of the practical feasibility of confining the Mississippi River within fixed channels has been a most important one, not only as it affected the improvement of navigation over this great inland watercourse, but also from the necessity of protecting great properties along its banka, which have been frequently endangered by its fitful changes. In 1873, for instance, the banks of the river fronting tho city of Memphis, Tenn., commenced rapidly caving in, the encroach- ment of the river destroying extensive sites and endangering costly structures, such as warehouses, elevators, cotton compresses, &c. In 187C, the bank had receded 350 feet, and was continuing to cave in at the rate of 100 feet per annum, thus promising to quickly destroy what had before been the finest harbour on the river above New Orleans, accessible to the largest vessels. I For a long time the national government has made annual appropriations for va...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889

Lecture.-Rev. J. Paterson is now visiting the Clarence district. He travelled through all these Australian colonies a quarter of a century ago, doing the work of an evangelist. Since leaving these shores in 1864 he has been in India, Russia, Burmah, Turkey, Mexico, Cuba, Manitoba and Jerusalem. Last year he landed at Townsville, and preached in many Queensland, New South Wales and Victorian towns. Thereafter he visited New Zealand, the Fijis, and Tonga. He has been lately visiting the Hunter and the New England districts. Anxious to see this district before he returns to Scotland, he arrived by coach on Wednesday. He will preach and lecture on Sabbath in South Grafton School of Arts, and preach at St. Andrew's in the evening. On Mon- day evening he will deliver in the Presbyterian Church a lecture on His travels in many lands." No doubt many will take advantage of this oppor- tunity of hearing this most extensively travelled missionary. The following are the handicaps for the rifle ...

Ulmarra. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889

Ulmarra. FRIDAY. ] Municipal.-The Connells monthly meeting will take place next Wednesday, and I suppose the draining of Swan Creek lands and other lands will come under discussion. The public do not seem to take the interest in municipal affairs that one would expect, and,it is rather the rule to see the Chamber deserted by ratepayers on the occasion of their meetings. Now, I do not think this right, and probably if ratepayers showed more interest in matters affecting their own welfare, their interests would be better looked after. Accidents.-A series of accidents among boys have-occurred within the last few days. A boy of Mr. S. Mawhinney's was some days ago badly gored by a cow, and though badly burt had ti wonderful escape. Another little fellow, son of Mr. H. ¡Firth, of the Coldstream, was very badly kicked by a horse, the animal striking him over the face and head, but fortunately no permanent disfigurement will result. Another accident happened to a three year old boy of Mr. ...

BELLINGER DEADLOCK.- Isn't it about time that Mr. Gould looked into the Bellinger deadlock? A justice np there has " jumped " the position of senior honorary magistrate, and his brother magis- trates decline to sit with him. That is bad enough, for anything that tends to make the administration of the law contemptible and ridiculous is a public misfortune. But there is also to be considered the convenience of suitors. The present situation is rather unpleasant for them. They, with their solicitors and their witnesses, attend the ...

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 28, 1889. RAILWAY PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 28 September 1889

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. _ 1 ESTABLISHED 1859.]_ SATURDAY MOBHETG, SEPTEMBER 2S, 18S9. RAIL WA Y PROPOSALS. THE resolution submitted by the MINISTER VOE PUBLIC WORKS to refer the Graf ton-Tweed Railway line to the Public Works Committee will be received with approval throughout these districts, as the fulfilment so far of a pledge frequently given. Of course, the reference is but a step towards the, con- summation of the Clarence system of railways, but it is an important step. It is a step admitting the right of these districts to consideration upon national grounds. It is to be hoped that the Works Committee will push on with the consideration of the matter during the ensuing recess, so that then report may be ready for adoption by Parliament early in the ensuing session. Although the MINISTER has not referred the other portions of the Clarence Railway system to the Committee, it will scarcely be possible for the Committee, when inquiring into the one, to exclude from c...

A CROWDED meeting wrs held in the School of Arts, Tenterfield, on Friday night, when Mr. Lee, M.L.A., replied to an address delivered at Grafton on the 4th instant by Mr. Bawden, on " Northern National Works." In the absence of the Mayor, who was attending the municipal conference, Alderman J. Whereat presided. Mr. Lee showed that the letter written by him to the Minister for ; Works on the Byron Bay scheme, and which apparently gave rise to Mr. Bawden's comments, -was-poDned over a month previous to his appoint- ment on the Pnblio Works Committee. He denied that he was an interested party, a3 he had no interest whatever in syndicates, mines, lands, or anything else at Byron Bay. On the proposed Byron Bay works, however, he declined to touch, not that he shirked reply, but because, as one of the committee, he could not do so. He was par* . ticularly eevere in condemnation of the Sonta Grafton to Glen Innes railway scheme, and quoted from official reports to ...

But what 1 gives me the greatest pleasure of all is to see the love which you have for your school and through your Echool for your native land, and for this sentiment all men must honour you.

In the Premier's WU of three years ago the , system of taxation proposed was one on the capfel value of land and buildings as well. At the sittings of the conference there was a strong minority in favor of the taxing of land and improvements, but the majority carriel the resolution which had been presented. It was thought that it would be a much fairer system to raise the municipal revenue j from a tax on land vaines only, because a tax on improvements meant striking a blow at industiy and enterprise.
