MODERN RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 13 June 1891

Modern Railways. The Hon. J. B. Pat terson has been giv ing an account of his recent trip to America to his constituents at Castlemaine ; and his views regarding the Victorian railways, after his American experi ences, seem to be very pronounced. Mr Patterson was formerly a Minis ter of Railways, and was, in fact, regarded as the most successful Minister of Railways who had come into power up to that period. Mr Patterson told his hearers that one of the principal reasons for his taking the trip was to ascertain whether our railways were the 'best managed in the world ' or not. The late Govern ment, of which Mr Patterson was a member, always upheld our railway system, but Mr Patterson has pro bably heard and seen so much that he began to have doubts as to whether there were not a few screws loose somewhere It will be remembered that Mr Speight some few months ago also paid a visit to America for the purpose of making observations on the 'Yankee' system of management. It is a signific...

La Grippe Again. The influenza is raging again this year with unprecedented deadliness. The para lising influences of this terrible malady have assumed the alarming dimensions of a plague. The distemper is of a powerfully destructive character, and shatters its victims with fearful suddenness. The severity of the visitation eclipses all previous attacks. The medical faculty fails to ac count for the outbreak, and is powerless t-- cmtrol its spread. Doctors, Nurses, and hospitals are diong everything possible for sufferers, but are overwhelmed by tbe multitude crying bitterly for relief. A despatch from one town states that 3'X) people died in one day, this was about the daily average, and the streets were crowded with vehicles carrying the dead to their last resting place ; and the sad vacancy 'f death depressed every house hold. Such trying times as these demand immediate attention. The doctors fail, and the many advertised cough and c -ld cures are only sedatives ?which interfere ...

Mining Nuggets. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 13 June 1891

Mining Nuggets. News from the Tawonga reefs shows that the value of discoveries has not been up to expectations. Three or four parties crushed at Biddington's mill, but the returns were not sufficient to warrant a con tinuance operations. Consequently ( onlv one claim is being worked, that by Morrison. The excitement over the Mitta Mitta and Mt. Wills tin mines is abating, the principal reason ; being the 'standing off' of syndicates, which do not seem in a hurrjT to operate. There is no doubt but that the:Mitta Mitta shows are the best, but as Mt. Wills was the first to strike the. fancies of capitalists, it will probably receive the most atten tion for some time. A report from the Mitta* Mitta tin field states that Walker and Daly are obtaining pieces of5 pure tin from the lode weighing l and 2 lb. They are sink ing on Barrett's lode to a depth of 100 feet, and other claims are looking well. Another lode has been found on the Commonwealth run, and from one of the leases recently t...
