Science Defeating a Trust. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Science Defeating a Trust. IN this nge of monopolies, euphoniously called " trusts," it will be well if law, science, and art unite to get the better of the men who would, if they could, monopolise the whole earth. Something very like that is just now threatening the Lead Tiust. A new process for the production of white lead from lead ore has been brought out in England, which promises to be very successful and to give us cheaper paint as well as cheaper lead. The process follows, in the main, the Bessemer process of mak- ing steel, the oxidation being produced by air instead of acids. The method is not poisonous to workmen, as the old acid process ia, and the pro- duct is declared to be better as well as muoh cheaper. This discovery would seem to promise an early relief from the onerous exactions of the existing Trust. But there is danger, judging from past experience, that one of two things may occur. The Trust will endeavonr either to buy the dis- covery or cause a high tariff Co...

Lower Clarence. MONDAY, MORNING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Lower Clarence. I MONDAY, MORNING. Presentation.-The other day, Miss Hood, who intends Bhortly to join the Dr. in Sydney, was presented with a set of the "English Poets," handsomely hound in 10 volumes, by her Sunday school scholars, as- a mark of their affection and esteem. Miss Hood has been identified with the Presbyterian Church here for come considerable time, and has always evinced a warm interest in the welfare of the Snnday school in connection therewith. OddfellOWS' Ball -The annual ball which was" Jield in connection with this society on Friday night in the Mcclean .School of Arts, could ecarcely ba considered as a success so far as attendance was concerned, and this, I presume, is the chief feature to be studied in a gathering of this character ; although if* the comfort of those who devote themselves to dancing be a point for consideration, the affair might be considered as not altogether devoid of success.

The Sugar Duties in America. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

I The Sugar Duties in America. I THE signs all indicate that the sogar duties will be the battle ground around which Congress will wage the coming tariff conflict. The continued increase of the surplus compels the abandonment of some existing duty or other. Thc question with Congress will, says the San ¿'rancheo XI'KX Letter, be as to the way in which the surplus cari be reduced at the cost of the smallest number of votes. Sngar duties bring in so much revenue that their abandon- ( ment alone would more than wipe out the present j excess of taxation. Besides, the Louisiana planters are neither very successful nor very influential. I They have not increased their sugar production to any great extent, and their Congressmen are all Democrats and Free-traders. If they suffer they have only themselves to blame. They may howl, but they cannot hurt. That view of the situation will be pretty likely to commend itself to the party in power as the easiest way out of a difficulty that cannot lo...

Look Up. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Look Up. Aß the news of Sit Henry Clinton's landing with ! nine thousand troops upon Long Island, followed j by Washington's evacuation of the island, spread along the Sound, there was a panie among the ' inhabitants. Deacon Trask, a citizen of Quogue, had accumulated a goodly sum of maney in gold, and resolved to hide it where it would be secure from Tory ravages. He put his guineas into a strong bag, and sallied forth an hour before dawn into the wilderness. When he had gone about three miles, he stopped beside an oak in the midst of some pines, put down his bag, and dug a hole in the sandy soil. Then he looked carefully on all sides, listened, and satisfied himself that he was alone, and finally dropped in his bag, covered it, scattered leaves and twigs over the spot, and went home. It chane d, however, that Deacon Jones, of the neighbouring town, was out that morning on a deer-hunt. He had selected that very oak tree as a hiding-place to watch for his game, and was enscoused in ...

An American Samson. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

An American Samson. A FRESHLY imported " strong man" exhibited his powers in a private room at the Westminster Aquarium on July 24, before a company of gentle- men who bad been specially invited, preparatory to an engagement he has contracted to fulfil at the well-known Westminster house of entertainment. He performs under the name of Samson, and is of German-American extraction, is 30 yeara of age, and weighs 1701bs. Unlike other performers of feats of strength on the stage, he does not go in i for lifting or carrying enormous weights, but I depends mainly on his extraordinary power of developing his muscles wherever they may be I required. His achievements on July 24 were, to [ the la»t degree remarkable. Passing from the bending of a copper gas pipe, which he afterwards straightened out by hammering in his left fore arm, he proceeded to show the muscular power of his chest. Taking eighteen lengths of picture wire, each containing eight strands, he tied them round his chest, and, ...

Borough of Grafton. Extraordinary Vacancy. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Borough of Grafton. ?Extraordinary Vacancy. PüBSUAKT to announcement, the official nomina- tion of candidates for the extraordinary vacancy in the West Ward of the Borough of Grafton, caused by the decease of Alderman Murray, took place at the pavilion in Fisher Park at noon on Saturday. It was generally known that one of the candidates nominated had retired, aud consequently very little interest was manifested in the proceedings. There were not more than 15 persons present. The M ATOE, as Returning Officer, read the clause of the Act relating to the proceedings, after which he read the nominations, as published, of Hermann Schaeffer and Abraham Lipman, also the resignation of the latter, after which he declared the first named duly elected to the vacant seat for the unexpired term of two years from February next. Alderman SCHAEFFER said it was not the first time he had been a candidate for the West Ward, and was therefore not new to Municipal work. While in the Council he had acted...

1 GEBMAN-AUSTBALIAN BANK.-There ia a move- ment in Berlin to establish a German-Australian Bank, with branches at Hamburg, or Bremen, Mel- bourne, Adelaide, Sydney, and Brisbane. There can he no doubt that the establishment of such a bank would be of the greatest value for the promoters of German trade with Australia. This trade dependa largely on European credit, and therefore necessi- tates much confidence ou the part of continental manufacturers. It is urged that the firms which are engaged in the export of Australian products to Germany would willingly put their business in the hands of such a bank, thus ensuring a certain number of customers at the start, while German merchants would be more ready to extend then operations with the establishment of an institution which could watch over the business operations of the transmarine houses. The idea is being warmly taken up by large manufacturers and merchants. THE LAND BILL.-In the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, re the salary o...

Payment of Members. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

I Payment of Members. THE passing of the Payment of Members Bill during the present Parliament seems somewhat to ! indicate a weakness on the part of the present Government. I ara quite impressed with the fact that the Assembly has upon three or four oooasiona passed a similar. measure, which, upon each occasion, was rejected by the Upper House. The passing of such a measure by the representatives i of the people may be construed into au expression of the people's views upon thia question. Bat is it I so? Upon no occasion previous to the appeal to' I the country in the last general election was it a I question remitted to the electors for consideration at a Parliamentary election. During the last general election Payment of Members was one of" the planks of the platform upon which tho Dibbs party stood, and it was put forth in their manifesto. That party was in a minority as the result of tho general election, therefore it is a measure from the Opposition programme that has been pas...

Religious Instruction in Elementary Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Religious Instruction in Elementary Schools. THE very eagerness on the part of their opponents to deprive the children in elementary schools of definite religious instruction should be an incentive to churchmen ta insist upon it and promote it by every legitimate means in their power. The religion of the future is very much in the hands of the children of the present, and the integrity of the faith of the twentieth century depends very much on the faithfulness and determination of Catholics in the nineteenth century. That they have borne the brunt of the battle bravely and unflinch- ingly even their bitterest enemies cannot deny. That they will still continue .to quit themselves like men in the fight no one can doubt. It needs no prophet to foretell what the religion in the future will-be if the efforts of the opponents, of j religious instruction in our schools are to be suc- cessful. It means a religion without dogma, a something without backbone, so weak and nerve- less that it i...

Church Of England.-On Sunday last the Bishop administered the rite of confirmation to 18 candidates at the Cathedral. His Lordship's dis- course on the occasion was particular]/ applic- able, and reference was made to the evil effects of keeping1 had company and reading works of fiction. We are informed that on next Sunday Mr. Garland will be ordained a Deacon. j Street Drains.-At the last Council meeting j the Inspector of Nuisances reported that he inspected the drains, one at the corner of Prince and Fitzroy streets, one at Bacon-Prince streets, and another at Fitzroy-Duke street intersection, which lead from private properties under the foot- paths and empty into the street gutters. In tho: 3 instances the pipes are, in the opinion of the Inspector, laid higher than the gutter, consequently the water cannot get away, and, therefore, becomes a nuisance. He considers that the Works Com- mittee should take this matter into their considera- tion. Weather in the Country.-A dry hot wi...

LAND BOOMS AND BUILDING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

LAND BOOMS AND BUILDING. THE Australasian, and Soxith American journal, remarking on what real estate booms are doing lor Australian cities says, the experience is only that of many towns in that country. Certain moneyed men and speculators, by con- spiracy or other concerted means, through simulta- neous action, force the value of real property up r ) extravagant prices. The fictitious values speedily collapse, to the ruin of many, md to the creation of a numerous army of defaulters, and a swelling of the number of criminals and fugitives from justice. One trace, however, of the boom has been left. The high prices at which land was quoted made it necessary for builders to make the most of the limited pieces of ground occupied with their structures, and those structures have been mn np towards the sky in order to make them profitable. Then follows complaint as to the manner in which these buildings are being put np. Towering ten and eleven stories in the air, it is claimed that they...

THE LAWRENCE IMPROVEMENT BOARD [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

TUE I.AWMEA'CE IMPliüVEXEXT BOARD WE have been disposed to congratulate the people of Lawrence upon the happy solution arrived at in connection with their Progress Association troubles. The rupture which had existed for some time was not only most unseemly, but it had the effect of weakening the hands of the people for good. There can be no doubt but that the old Association did much good work of a local charac- ter. Perhaps its weakest point was when it tried to step beyond the purely local arena, and trenched upon the right of persons beyond it. Possibly this may, tn a great measure, have been the cause for local antagonism between the members of the Association themselves. Now, however, it is neither necessary or desirable to rip up those old sores. It is not unlikely there were faults on both sides. To U3, who have been almost passive observers of the old troubles, it was upon public grounds a source of pleasure when the apparent leaders of the contend- ing parties agreed to sin...

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ ESTABLISHED 1859.] TUESDAY MOBKT¡S*G, OCTOBEB 1ST, 1SS9. THE GJIAFTOA7-TWEED BAIL WAY. THE referring of the Grafton-Tweed Railway pro- posal to the Public Works Committee is a step in the direction of according a very tardy justice to thÍ3 part of the colony. It is a step that in itself is not one calling for great exultation at the present stage. Much yet remains to be done before the claims so long and so persistently made attain full fruition, and unlesä the people continue active in pressing those claims on the Government, the tedious process of the past may still obtain much to the detriment of the public interest.
