Keeping Cut Plowers, Wild and Cultivated. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Keeping Cut Plowers, Wild and Cultivated. How to keep flowers after they have been cut, is a problem that often puzzles people in the city as well as the country. The florists usually have refrigerators in which to keep their flowers. But a cool ice box is not often to be had at the very time when it is most wanted. The first essential in keeping cut flowers is to prevent their moisture from evaporating. Even wild flowers, which are the most delicate and shortest lived after they are cut, can be kept for a week or ten days if evaporation from them can be entirely prevented. Take a clear glass bottle, the wider the neck, of course, the better. Put half a cup of water in it. Take the bunch of flowers, press them through the neck (they will bear gentle squeezing) and leave them so that the ends of the stems are just clear of the mouth. Then put in the cork and turn the bottle upside down. If the glass is clear they will make a pretty table ornament. When gathering wild flowers take alo...

High Wages and Foreign Competition. (From Longman's Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

High "Wages and Foreign Competition. - . ? I (From Lontjmaris Magazine.) WE are between two dangers. If we raise thecostof production by gi vinghigh wages to our workers, we may be undersold by countries in which the workers are worse off ; if we lower the cost of production by giving low wages to our workers, we cause a constant sore of poverty which is (apart from all questions of justice or humanity) a continual national danger and a continual national expense. Moreover, poverty on the part of the working class means the decline of skilled work. It lowers the health and intelligence of the worker, and it makes parents unable to afford the expense and delay of training for their children. Where a father does not earn enough to keep his children properly fed, the children must for their own sakes be put to work that will bring in a few shillings immediately ; that is to say, to some work that needs no learning. In other words, the child must become an unskilled instead, of a skille...

The Prince of Wales as a Family Man. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

The Prince of Wales as a Family Man. IF the Prince, who has drawn aside one corner of the curtain which veils his family j life, would lift it altogether, says Mr. Smalley in the New Yorh Tribune, the English people would see a picture of that domestic happi- ness which they so much delight in. lt is known to those who are of his set, and to many besides, that he is a family man. " He was always in the nursery by eight in the morning," said one of his friends. As he likes going to bed at three or four, or five, the hour seems early, but he who said it must have known. He looked after the training of his boys and girls much more seduously than the average English father. They were brought up strictly and simply- j few people would believe how simply. The girls had their mother with them : how could they fail to be well bred ? More than that, the Prince is a man of tbis time, accessible to ideas, well aware of what goes on in the world in spheres very unlike his own. He may believe in...

Unequal Sentences. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Unequal Sentences. As article contained in a recent issue of the Bul- letin, in dealing with thia subject, advocates the system of allowing the measure of punishment to be inflicted upon criminals, to be determined by the jury. In suggesting this course the writer of the article in question argues with great plausibility that it is wrong to criminals, and unjust to the com- munity, that the degree of punishment to be meted out to the offenders, should depend upon the caprice of a judge, or be influenced by the frame of mind in which he might happen to be, or by his natural tendency to leniency or severity. And it also condemns the system, because it is well known that by reason of those tendencies, the criminal's chances of short or long terms of imprisonment are materially affected by the ques- tion as to which of the judges is going to try his case? We shall find few persons probably, who will deny that the inequality of the sentences delivered at our Criminal Courts has become a ...

MUNICIPAL PATCHWORK. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

MUNICIPAL PATGIIWOBK. THERE appears to be a very earnest desire in some quarters to enter upon a Bystem of Municipal patch- work in the shape of drainage works. With this object it is proposed to raise a loan, a portion of which, it is suggested, shall be devoted to some mythical and at present undefined scheme of drainage : a Boheme without plans or design suffi- ciently comprehensive to prove generally beneficial. With all due respect to the members of the Muni- cipal body who may think differently, we scarcely think the present proposal as submitted is the best ?for the city, or for the ratepayers. We think it is j little use frittering away the Council's borrowing power upon the raising of loans for the carrying out of such works as proposed, especially now, when the Railway era is dawning on the horizon of expectancy. We, on a recent occasion when refer- ring to this qnestion of borrowing, pointed out the advantage that would be derived by the judicious expenditure of a lafge l...

Coff'S Harbour to Guyra. The Reserves. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Coffs Harbour to Guyra. The Reserves. HOWEVER much opinion may vary respecting the desirability of constructing this line of railway, those who have the interest of the country at heart will give the Government credit for the finn manner in which they have checkmated the land grabbing fraternity, by reserving the lands along the course, or likely to be benefitted by the con- struction of snch a line. The action of the Government has, no doubt, been dictated rather by the idea that the price of the lands in question will be greatly increased, and bring in more revenue, than by the desire which should have stimulated their action, to prevent the3e fertile lands from falling into the hands of land sharks and speculators, or even into the hands of men who fall into the great error of selecting, with the be3t intentions, areas of land utterly in excess of their means, to retain or bring into culti- vation. A short time ago some of the Coast people sent in a memo, to the Minister for Land...

MONOPOLISING TRUSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

MONOPOLISING TRUSTS. AT a recent meeting of the Steamship Owners' Association, the question of the Government Railway Act and differential rates was discussed. Strong references were made to the new feature in commercial competition adopted in New South Wales, under which the Government, with the funds of the country at its disposal, were fighting hard, and fighting at a los3, against the very citizens who help to furnish the funds. This was referred to as a unique position in commercial history. If the large Steam Companies suffer through this unique form of Governmental administration, what shall be said of the less influential, and far less wealthy, teamsters who it is sought by this gigantic Government Railway Trust to crush out of existence, so far as profitable employment in their business is concerned ? Com- plaints are made with respect to the operations of great monopolizing Trusts in other countries, but none of those can come np to the cruel results likely to ensue from t...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Letters to the Editor. I TM Editor does nbt hold himself responsible for opinions .zprewed by correspondents. SIB.-By his letter in last Taesday's Examiner Mr. Samson stands revealed to your many readers as a satirist and humorist of no mean order. Mr. Samson, in the preamble to his letter informa. ns (perhaps lest we might mistake his intentions) that he is a " well-wisher " of the Grafton Debating Clftb. Of course different persons have different modes of shewing their good wishes, though Mr. Samson's mode seems, to the ordinary observer, to point the finger of scorn at the Debating Olub most publicly through the Press. But we may not be competent to discern bis motives ; he alone can tell us in what manner they will benefit the club of which he ia a "well-wisher." An ordinary " well-wisher " would have first made the enthusi- astic debaters cognizant of the "distraction" they -were unwittingly causing in the reading room below, and they would at once have ceased their melodious "...

PARLIAMENT. WEDNESDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

PARLIAMENT. THE Council held a brief sitting. Mr. TRICKETT sought to restore the Ministerial Elections Bill, counted ont on the previous day, to the paper, which being objected to, could not be put. To call attention to it, Mr. Trickett moved the adjourn- ment of the House. The Governor's assent to certain Bills was announced, when the House rose. Is the Assembly, Mr. CRICK denied that when speaking on the previous day about Mr. John Davies that he had imputed discreditable motives to Mr. Stipendiary Magistrate Fisoher in dismissing the Davies' case at tàe police court. On the contrary, he spoke in the highest terms of Mr. Fischer's fairness and impartiality. Several unimportant questions without notice were asked and answered, Mr. FARNELL moved the adoption of the Select Committee's report on Fisheries. Sir HENRY PARKES rose and said he had received a letter from Mr. Davies, which he would Tead, and move that it be printed. He proceeded to read the letter, which referred to a state...

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Glen Innes, Wednesday. THE Grafton-Glen Innes Railway League are con- vinced, from information in their possession, that a first-class line for a railway between Glen Innes and Grafton has been discovered. For some con- siderable diàtance it runs through rich scrub lands abundantly.timbered with cedar, beech and other valuable woods. It is the opinion of professional men that the gradients would not be steep, and the ascent to the Tableland could be made in 1 in 50, The line, starting from Glen Elgin station, would be about 15 miles to the north of the presen b survey, but the whole distance would not be more than 100 miles. Sydney, Thursday. THE Civil Servants salaries are unpaid, which is causing great dissatisfaction. Mr. Inspector Cameron, who was shot at Dubbo, j is still in a critical condition.

The Cangi Gold field. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

The Cangi Gold field. MR. EDWIN 0. WATT, of Drake, writes to the Daily Telegraph Reports from the new gold-field at Cangi, on the Mitchell River, continne to be of a most encourag- ing nature, and a rush is Betting in. The new field, which is situated about 35 miles west of Grafton, and about an equal distance east of Bear hill, has been worked for several years as an alluvial field, but it is only quite recently that serious attention has been given to reefing. The country rock is a soft slate, and the aurifer- ous belt of country, so far as it has been prospected, appears to flank the course of the river for several miles on both sides, At the prospecting claim the reef has opened out from "2 J ft. on the surface to nearly Cft. at a depth of 24ft., and shows gold freely from wall to wall. About CO tona of quartz is at grass, estimated to go 5oz. to the ton. At the John Bull mine, which is situated about three miles from the lastmentioned property, the shareholders have obtained su...

Ulmarra. FRIDAY. Jr*ioneer Dairy Company.-Afc a meeting of the Butter Factory Committee to report progress, and see what further steps could be taken in the matter, the Secretary announced the number of shares that had been applied for. Mr. M'LEOD spoke against paragraph i in the prospectus, which reserved for the Company the right of re-purchasing the shares of all holders who were not suppliers of milk. He thought this clause kept book a great many who would be investors, and he was of opinion that it WES hardly fair. Mr. GOODGER thought ic would have been bette" if the suppliers had come forward and taken up the shares, but as this had been tried, and the suppliers of milk would not come forward, he could only s¿y that money was necessary to float the Company, and if the suppliers would not provide it, they must accept it from the non-suppliers. He certainly did not think they had a right to ask the outside public to risk their money, with the certainty that if the thing succeede...

Until an hour or two past midnight one or two ordinary items on the supplementary Estimates were under consideration. Then the question of payment to JOHN DAVIES for his services as Chairman of the Casual Labour Board was introduced. Sir HENRY PARKES made an earnest speech in favour of the item, but Mr. DIBBS opposed it tooth and nail. In the course of his address he said some very strong things about Mr. Davies. He also made some severe reflections on a few members whom he did not name. The latter riled Mr. JACOB GABBABD considerably, and he insisted on Mr. Dibbs apologising to the House, but the leader of the Opposition stifly declined ta do so, and the CHAIBMAN refused to make him ; whereupon Mr. Garrard appealed, with the consent of the House, to the SPEAKER.

The Revenue Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

The Revenue Returns. THE revenue returns for the quarter ended Monday are a surprise and a disappointment. The increase over the corresponding quarter of 1888 is only £30,500. The year's revenue amounts to £8,993,643, and the taxation for the quarter shows a decrease of nearly £3000. The principal decrease-£20,389 -is in the line of specific duties, and the appended details suggest that the importations of building materials had considerably slackened. The next largest decrease is tea, £2955. On the other hand, tobacco and cigars yielded an increase of £10,293, sugar and molasses of £8195 and spirits of £3028. The excise duty of tobacco and cigars fell off by £1238, and while the duty on spirits distilled in the colony increased by £2069j stamps decreased by £2057. Publican's licenses show an increase of £4872. Passing to land revenue, the total figures for the quarter compare favorably with the same quarter of last year by £8492. Among the de- creases are auction sale?, £14.493 ; i...
