GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 8 October 1898

GENERAL NEWS.     THERE have been. persistent rumors in the air ;to. the-effect that, we are to have nboraces on New Year's Day. From whence they originated, we know not, but we ,can sayj for; the informa tion of our readers that there is no truth in the report, and that the event will be held as before. Time is flying on, however,' and it would be well if our racing authorities were to imme diately take action anent the prelimi nary business. The Lilydale Odd fellows' intend holding athletic sports on that day, and this will certainly prove a great counter attraction to our annual fixture. WE are informed that the'- ladies who are now engaged in sewing and providing articles for the Presbyterian Fair, in December, are getting through a deal of work, and the funds of the church are expected to profit mate rially from the sale of these goods when the fair is opened to the ipublic. Tuesday and Friday are the days set apart for sewing, though the' work done on...

THE HINDOO HAWKER. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 8 October 1898

THE HINDOO HAWKER.   The Hindoo hawker, as he strolls through the country with his pack, dispensing his wares to those who accord him that support which he so little deserves, is at any time an unde- sirable gentleman to form an acquaint- ance with. As he walks from town   to town "hunping his little lot," a casual glance will suffice to show under what conditions this man ekes out an exiatence. With no taxes, except a licence-no burdens, beyond what he carries-and nothing whatever to trouble him, except it he that he does not always secure the price he wants for his goods, truly :this personage is most lucky, And enjoys life from one point of view at all events. Some years ago when these dusky, indi- viduals first began to plant their feet on Victorian soil, and swarmed into the colony by every vessel, from whence they made their way into the country with their "tappeny 'apeny" articles, namav s L--.

MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 15 October 1898

-. MINING NEWS. . Mr. H. H. Manning has forwarded a report to- the Secretary of Mines relative to the resources of the Upper Yarra district for mining purposes, and, as an old prospector himself, he recommends experienced men to try the heads of various creeks running into the Yarra. He is satisfied that at Reefton, M'ilMahon's Creek, and Big Boll's Creek there is a good field for prospectors. There are large alluvial areas which should pay, and if races were cut so as to command the -higher alluvial boundaries, Mr. Man ning believes .it would give work for hundreds of men. Old miners have reported that rich specimens up to 16 oz.' have been fouind high up Big Boll's Creek, which" aparty is now arranging to work." Scotchman's Creek, at War burton, is another place which this gentleman recommends to miners. It has .een very rich in alluvial, but the matrix has never been found: Speci miens up to 40 oz. have been got, and the creek runs for about 1 miles out of a high range. Mr. DCl M...

A WORD FOR VILLAGE SETTLERS. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian and Yarra Glen Guardian — 15 October 1898

A WORD FOR VILLAGES SETTLEIRS.r._ Mr. E. H. Cameron, in speaking: oh the Land Bill, last week, said :-I see inthis Bill a clause whereby it is pro posed to ante-date the licences. I would speak on behalf of the village settlers who have taken up land and remained on it, and have asked to be placed under the 42nd section. I should like to see those people allowed to ante-date their time for licences from the time they occupied the land. I think they are as much entitled to do so as any other class of settler. The Government have in many instances had to keep them, and they ought to give them this privilege. Another part of the Bill I wish to refer to affects to some extent people in the constituency I represent. I allude to the portion relating to persons not re siding on their land. Many people in my electorate have taken up small blocks of land, and cannot: get other land within five miles of their blocks They may get it within 10 or 15 miles. They will be compelled under this Bill...

"RING OUT THE OLD-RING IN THE .NEW) " Cricket begins to move again this season with a meeting of members on Saturday (this evening) to discuss the season's programme and -outlook for 1898-9. Anyone wishing to attend and take part in the business may send in their last season's subscrip tioin.of 5s. to the secretary, Mr. J. Lindupp, or treasurer, Mr. J. George; and all in arrears are particularly re quested to note this fact, so that accounts may- he-squared up for the season, and a fair start made for the incoming one. Whether our cricket ing talent is to display itself at all on our local heath, depends really on the response made, . for materials are needed, which cost money, and these must be paid for-that is, if the club is to maintain an" honorable existence. Thanks to the efforts of some enthu siasts, a neat little pavilion is in evi dence on our local ground, its erection being aided a great deal by generous help from our civic fathers.

BOOMERANG SHOTS. . Br Quiz. In still following up my remarks with reference to this colony being in the proud position and so far in advance of New South Wales with reference to the position of the work. ing classes, has it ever struck lKing" Syme, or his paid ink-slingers, as to what is to become of the Victorian youth. Now this question is a matter of grave importance to every father and mother, more or less, throughout the colony. Some twenty-five years ago a question was asked in our.-House of Legislature as to what was to become of our boys. At that time the late Sir John O'Shanassy answered the query in a very happy manner by saying, " Oh, marry them to the girls, of course." That was all very well in those days, but has this very import. ant matter been taken into considera. tion seriously of late by some of our wise legislators who are supposed to have superior knowledge, and more foresight, than the ordinary ran of mortals. ---o But Quiz has his doubts about that.
