OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS. WE have before ns the Report of the Minister of Public Instruction for the year 1888. At the recent presentation of Centennial prizes, Mr. INSPECTSB LOBBAN contributed to public information some very interesting figures connected ?with schools in his district. Those figures, if we mistake not, were brought down to the latest date. Of course the Report before ns only deals with the state of things up to 31st December, 1888. Upon referring to Mr. Lobban's report for that year, we find that in his Inspectorial district-in which he is assisted by two sub-inspectors, or rather, as they are called/ assis- tant inspectors-there were 238 schools, a. net increase of 9 on the previous year. Those schools provided sitting accommodation for 13.150 scholars, as against that for 12,746. Upon the question of accommodation it is pointed out that so soon as the authorised additions are completed there will he ample -accommodation in every school in the district. The attendance wa...

Miss Winifred Butler. An Important Case. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Miss Winifred Butler. An Important Case. THE announcement that the U'ull Court, consisting of the Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Windeyer, and Mr. Justice Foster, would deliver judgment on the appeal in the matter of Winifred Marian Butler, attracted a large attendance at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, and among those present were a number of ladies. The facts of the case are fully stated in the judgement. The father of the appellant, the late Mr. Edward Butler, Q.C.. was a Roman Catholic. The mother became a Roman Catholic on her marriage, though she had been a member of the Church of England before. The father died in 1879, when the infant waB little more than three years old. The mother on his death returned to her parents' home, where she continued to live amidst Protestant surroundings until June last. About three years ago Mrs. Butler, who had until then continued to be a Roman Catholic, and had educated her child in that faith, rejoined the Church of England, and henceforth educ...

Political and Social Letter. [WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE EXAMINES.] [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Political and Social Letter. fWHITTEN SPECIALLY FOB THE EXAMINES.] -?-: BEFORE this, appears in print your readers will have heard that the Railway from Grafton to the Tweed has been sent to the Public "W orks Com- mittee for investigation. I do not think its con- struction will be opposed by that body, or if it should be, then every other line submitted for its consideration should be rejected, for in my judg- ment that Coast line is more necessary than any other country railway that has been proposed, if I except the one from Grafton to the Tableland. I may here say that in connection with all the works proposed for the Clarence and Richmond River dis- tricts, Mr. JOHN SEE has worked most assiduously. I am in a position to make that statement with perfect confidence. T have noticed that complaints have sometimes been made against him by people in both the districts ; but if they understood all the circumstances, which they do not, they would refrain from uttering a single word of ...

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

PARLIAMENT, i THE Legislative Council held two sittings on Fri- day-one at mid-day, which had been fixed in the hope that the prorogation would take place at noon, and the other at the usual hour. At the former the receipt of a message was announced to the effect that the Assembly had decided not to insist upon its disagreement to the amendments made by the Council in the Crown Lands BilL The announce- ment of the retirement of the Assembly from the position it had taken up was received with loud cheers. At the second sitting of hon. members they proceeded at once to deal with the bill to authorise the searching for minerals on conditionally sold or conditionally |leased land. A disposition was shown to alter the bill so as to require the miner who desired to search for minerals to deposit a sum sufficient not only to cover the cost of repairing any damage he might do to the surface of the land, but to compensate the owner or lessee of the land for any loss he might have sustained ;...

Echoes and Opinions. THE RICHMOND RIVER ENTRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Echoes and Opinions. THE RICHMOND RIVER ENTRANCE. WE are very pleased to Bee that the Public Works Committee have thought fit, without visiting the locality, to pass Sir JOHN COODE'S proposals for the improvement of the Richmond River entrance in its entirety. With the evidence already before the Committee, and the recommendation of the most eminent engineer in the world in connection with harbour and river improvements, there wasnothing to be gained by the Committee visiting the locality, while to have attempted it would only have resulted in delaying the proceeding with one of the most necessary works upon the coast. Mr. COPELAND was no doubt quite right in his view, that nothing could be gained by any further delay. This action of the Public Works Committee at once-subject, of course, to the adoption of the report by Parlia- ment-obviates any difficulty that was likely to have arisen out of the Byron Bay project. The latter can, under the circumstances, now scarcely be brought in...

Single Tax V. Protection. Mr. Thomas Rose v. Mr. Cotton. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 1 October 1889

Single Tax V. Protection. ... Mr. Thomas Rose v. Mr. Cotton. SIB.-I saw in Tuesday's issue two paragraphs commenting upon the above debate-one under the heading "Political and . Social," and the other a quotation from the Sydney Star. It is with the 'latter that I inore especially concern myself. It is stated in the Star paragraph that Mr. Rose showed conclusively that to tax the land which our farmers have to turn into grain, while admitting to our markets free the produce of the untaxed land of ' other countiies, would be to make agriculture in . New South Wales impossible ; and this his opponent was obliged to admit and meet by an ignominous confession that to carry out the Georgian idea under Free Trade was an impossibility. If Mr. Cotton admitted this, he admitted what has very £ often now been demonstrated ' to be false, and shewed himself totally incapable of grasping the exact arguments as set forth in Mr. George's works " Progress arid Poverty " and " Protection or Free - T...

MANGLED BY TRAINS.—The body of a woman was found on the Brighton railway line in Victoria last week in a terribly mangled condition. One foot with the boot was lying some distance from the body. At first it was thought she must be dead, but on being taken to the hospital she revived sufficiently to give the name of Margaret O'Keeffe. She stated that she was knocked down at 9 o'clock on Monday night, so that several trains must have passed over her. One leg has been amputated. THE LONDON STRIKE.—Mr. Gladstone, speaking at Hawarden, stated that the way in which the different trades and branches of labour combined during the recent London strike was a fact of the highest importance from many points of view. Looking at the similarity of the combination of the London Workers with that of the Irish tenantry he was led to believe that coercive laws in force in Ireland had led the people to combine in their common interests, just as the London workmen combined to resist the dock-owners.

The Mercantile, Building, Land and Investment Company. IT will be seen by an advertisement in another column that the Mercantile, Building, Land and Investment Company, limited, and Savings Bank, has established an agency in Grafton, with Mr. j Bawden as local agent. The business of this com- pany is an extensive one. embracing all those branches usual with financial institutions of the building and land company class. Its transactions, we gather from the last half-yearly balance sheet and comparative statement of progress, appears to have been very successful ; the average receipts for the instalments on land purchases and repay- ments on loans being equal to £42,614 per annum. On 30th June last the assets of the Company amounted to £2S4,203, invested in freehold pro- perty, and mortgages on property of the like class. In the valuation of the freehold property it is stated to be set down at cost price only. The total receipts for the half-year are shown to have been £127,561, and t...
