THE INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 August 1889

THE INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT . .. . union. ;?????. ;?;;. ;?? r Tho dofectivo stato of tho law in reference to international copyright has been a standing in . justieo to musioal composers, whoso works havo boon 2J-rftted witli impunity. To givo ono in stance, it is well known that Gounod, through omission of English registration, never pro fited in the slightest dogree by the English pub lication of his opera, Faust, which has been issued by more than one English publisher, largo sums being realised by the sale. Similarly English composers have suffered largely by American piracy, but tho new law cannot affect this, as America has not entered into the International Convention. This came into force on the 6th December, 1887, as tho result of diplomatic International conferences held at Berne in 1884 and 1885, attended by delegates 'from tho French, Gorman, British and, other -Govern- ments.

The marked activity in silver shares is again nttnictliiif notice, nnd something like a recur rence of ' the boom ' is threatened in this direc- , tion. It may, however, be hoped that more -'judgment will bo displayed this year than Irist .by the outside 'public in their dealings. The IJioken Hill Proprietary mine market- has, it ?must be admitted, proved an immmense suc cess. Since it started active operations four or five years ago *the minef lias produced £2,166,274 worth of silver and lead, and more than hnlf wns turned out during tho last 12 . mouths.

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 August 1889

A fair trade demand hns been experienced during tho month in the general markets, and the inquiry for consumption is well sustained. The London wool sales are closed with great spirit, competition being active and prices nrm.at beat . .point 'obtained' during the currency of the pre sent series. This is most satisfactory, as it sub stantially confirms the promise 'that the imme diate future of the market will be favorable* to growers. The influence of wool iirice.-uon our local prosperity is great, and hence this en couraging outlook as to their course warrants the expectation .that those, hopes of the coming spring bringing .with it renewed prosperity will be realised. Already we note, by the sale re corded of a. frontage of 67 feet to Collins-street west at £950 per foot, that the scare which of late has caused such a depression in real estate is passing away, and although wo neither look for nor hope for a repetition of the 'land boom,' still a return of confidence and fair value...
