The Eight Hours Demonstration. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 20 October 1888

The Eight Hours Demonstration. The Eight Hours Demonstration in tho Fitr ramatta Park, last Monday, completely upsctthe doleful predictions of those who argued failure from its postponement, from tho preceding pouring Monday. The weather was all tlii- t could be desired, for although the sky was by no means brilliant, the constant succession of more or less heavy banks of clouds sheltered the already sufficient perspiring crowds from tiie rays of the suit which, at this season of the year, are becoming too ardent to be pluasaut. from a very early hour there wns an unwonted stir in the, main streets of the town. What may be termed 'tho country contingents,' as distinguished from the 'cits,' arriving on horse-buck, on foot, and in all sorts of vebicks well m advance of the latter. By ',) a.m. the ordinary trains began to arrivo, carry ing passengers much in excess of their usual loads, and between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., the 18 special trains poured fully 10,000 excursionists intu Parrama...

Parramatta Politics. THE SPLITTING- OF THE PARTIES. A coiiREsrONDEOT writes to the 'Daily Tele graph' : — ' In the event of Mr. C. J. Byrnes, the ilayor of Parramatta, deciding to contest the next election in the historic borough, locul political feeling will become very much mixed. Both have a host of staunch friends at their backs, but thfi rfili«rioiiR oriraTiizntions will bft placed in a dilemma. Mr. H. Taylor, the pre sent member, is a convert to the Roman Cath olic Church and professes to bo an out and -out freetrader and ' Parkes Man.' Mr. Byrnes is a Protestant, with pronounced protectionist principles. Recent Parliamentary elections have shown most untnistukeably tbat the vote of the Orange party has been in support of Parkes and freetrade, while their religious antagonists have votod anti-Parkes and pro tection. Now the question would bo whether tho Catholic party would support Taylor, free trade and I'arknM. nr t.lin Prntr-srnnt. TWvm's and protection. The Orangemen would...

The Vine Diseases Board. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 20 October 1888

The Vine Diseases Board. Mb. E. WiiiTAXMt, secrotarv fo tho Fruit growers' Union of Now South 'Wales, writes as follows to the ' Telegraph ' :— ' My attention hns boon cnllo:l to a letter which appeared in your issue of the 12th iust., undor the above beading, and signed ' George Jung.' In no part of my report have I stated that, it wns not necessary to uproot outer pinnts than grnpe vines ; Mr. Jung has ? drawn a wrong in ference. I maintain that the Vine Diseases Act of 1S8G and the amended ono of 18SS does not authorise the destruction of other plants than grape vines, and make no provision for com pensating tho owners beyond tho actual cost of the formation of a vineyard ; therefore, should tho board see fit to uproot pear or other valu able trees (which in my opinion they ennnot legally do), a special charge will have to be miide'ut a much higher valuation.

There were now some GO playing and 20 honorary members supporting the club, whose subscriptions woro wholly expended in providing a, caretaker and improving tlio ground.

THE PHYLLOXERA PEST. Tiie Vine Di'senses Bonrd hns been in labour for some considerable time, and, from all thut oun te gathered, is about to bring forth a very ridiculous mouse. This Board, 'composed— as ?\viis loudly heralded forth at tho time of its ap pointment — of 'practical men,' has been en gaged, directly and indirectly, in examining certain vineyards in the Toongabbie, Seven Bills, and Camden districts, and has arrived at tho conclusion that it has discovered some thirty acres - (more or less) to be infected with the Phylloxera vastatri.t.
