NO SHAMBLES FOR RICHMOND. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
NO SHAMBLES FOR RICH j MOND. [The following article is written by Paul Twyford, and although we publish same, we wish it to be underetood that we do not necps sarily identify ourselves with the views contained therein. Ed.H.AO * " Ôone, gone-cold and gone, Where the demon fever strews Poison with the falling dews." -Whittier. " Sweet Auburn ! loveliest village of the plain, Where health and plenty cheered the labouring Birâfô." So sang Goldsmith; and the lines might well he applied to Richmond-for it is the " loveliest village of the plain." Where is the tired traveller and bored globe trotter that has not owned up to tho fact that in Richmond he found peace, quietude, loveliness, health, good provender for man and beast. drinkable tipple, and right good,, old-fashioned hospitality Î I have never met him. On the contrary,, I have met hundreds of men and wooton that have sung Richmond's praise in a very loud key, and as glowingly as old Oliver sang paeans to his village. What a place...

The Queensland Fly. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
The Queensland Fly. The Queensland fly has made . it» presence felt in the old or chards in Marsfield, but young orchards in this district are com Sratively free from its ravages', r. H. Lovell has found that six of his trees are affected by the pest, and on one occasion picked a kerosene can full out % of about two cases of peaches (Heard's Superb) rendered unmarketable by the fly. He is always, careful to gather up windfalls which he boils for the. fowls, and in this ?way prevents the spread of the fly. Mr. Lovell's observations -with regard to this dreadful enemy of the fruit-grower are that the fly is found to affect miUAV VUC IX J iO J-VT U.U. VI UV» UU.WV orchards in sheltered positions. In a warm sunny atmosphere lying to the east it is generally ?worse than in positions facing the south or west, and orchards lying southerly he has found are more free from the fly than any others. Mr. Lovell is of opinion that we would have very little Queensland hy if Queensland fruits, espe...
HOW "FLANEUR" BECAME A PRESSMAN. Memories of A. G. Taylor and Dan Mayne. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
«OW " FLANEUR" BECAME i A PRESSMAN. Memories of A. G. Taylor and Dan Alayne. Mr. John 1. Hunt, better known as "The Flaneur" of the "Freeman's Journal" and "Boondi" of the "Re feree," tells readers of the latter paper low he was induced to become a press man. His remarks arc worth reprinting. He says :-" The late Dolph Taylor and 1 were f* st friends all through life, and occasionally had some breezy times to gether. Indirectly Dolph was the cause of my taking to journalism. Whether he dese.vcs a statue or reproach on that «ceo.mt is not for me to 6ay.

The Bushmen's Contingent. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
The Bushmen's Contingent. The question of the command of this company is still exercising the minds of many amateur critics. Early in the week someone wrote to the papers suggesting that Major-General French should be given command, and the only reason lie can give for such a suggestion is that he is à senior officer to anyone they can send from Victoria. This person has hardly a statesmanlike Way of deciding things. Borne time ago ' Colonel Airey was appointed, and though he is a good sol dier, his knowledge of the bush is nil ; so that if the Imnerial nffipprn niara JOIV confidence in his bash instincts, disaster will probably follow the entire force. Colonel Airey should have gone with the former contingent, bat owing to wire pulling and political influence the posi tion was given to another. The only con solation is that some officer like Baden Powell will be in command of the force, who will have sense enough to know that an English-bred and trained military officer knows nothi...
Partition of Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
Partition of Queensland. A PETITION was recently pre sented to the Acting-Governor of Queensland for transmission to Mr. Chamberlain, praying that provision should be made in the Commonwealth Bill for the di vi sion of the Colony into States, j It is remarkable how little some people know of the contents of Constitution Bill, and how defi cient they are in ideas as to the probable working of that Consti tution. Either the promoters of \ this petition are ignorant of the provisions of the Bill, or elee they are trying to work a political dodge. The Bill actually does divide the Colony of Queensland into three divisions for the pur pose of the election Jöf Senator ; but if Mr. Chamberlain alters the Bill in any respect, his action will incur considerable displeas ure, so that he will not do so un less it is absolutely necessary. If the people of Queensland want partitioning up for " the purpose of local administration, their course is to petition* the Federal Parliament, but that augu...
Martin-Place Land Sale. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
Martin-Place Land Sale.' WHETHER the Government did right in selling this land at so comparatively small a som, is hard to say ; it was more a ques tion of political expediency than anything else probably. It is in-. structive to recall the fact that some yeors ago £1600 a foot was offered for the same piece which has now been sold for £925. The Bank of Australasia did a great stroke by securing what is aetuallv the best business site in Sydney, and the wonder is that either the Bank of New South Wales or the Commercial allowed such a chance to slip through their fingers ; for the future now these two institutions will be literally and actually in tho shadow of the rival. The price paid for the land is very low, compared with what it will be a few years hence, thus giving an opportunity to many business places to«ecureexcellent premises. But there does riot^àmtiMaHoo much enterprise about, where was the A. M. 1?. Society for in stance ? Is it prepared to stay for ever in its quiet a...
Artesian Bores. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
:-? Artesian Bores. MB. HASSALL seems to be a mau of large ideas too, like his col league, Mr. O'Sullivan. Hence he calmly talks about putting a quarter of a million sterling into sinking artesian bores all over the country, more particularly, no doubt, in the electorates bf his own supporters. No one will deny that lots of money could be spent in this way, nor will any one suppose that a lot will not be squandered if administered in the present hap-hazard centralised manner. It is in undertakings such as this that the need of a local Government body is felt. If each district were responsible for the correct application of the bore, each had to pay cost or portion of cost, together with interest there of, they would be careful that nothing negligent were done, and they would also be anxious for bores to be sunk in suitable localities, because of the increased value that would be given to the land, and therefore the increased revenue derivable from the land. At present the bore is pu...

That there should be a great re vival of the horse breeding indus try in New South Wales, on ac count of the war. That some effort should be made by the police to suppress " larrikinism in Windsor. That the success of the British in South África during the past week constitute the beginning of the end. That shade tre...
WISEMAN'S FERRY. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
(From OUÏ own correspondent.) ; Thé wórk of «i^çiing the new, wharf is making rapid progress; arid when finished will be a fine structure, and a credit to the con tutor, Mr. lawson. Éroñi Bros.1 Circus came to'the Ferry on Sunday last and.played to a , fairly . large audience on Monday night. The staff of horses numbered 107, and with out doubt the circus is one of the] best travelling shows in the] colony. Mr. Elder, of the Electric Tele-j graph Department, and his staff' of men who have been camped here for- some months, have shifted camp to the Ten-mile Hollow. During their stay at' the Ferry they had become most popular with the residents. Inspector Lattimer paid a flying visit to the Ferry last week for the purpose of inspecting the site for the proposed new Police Station and Court House. The tenement'used as a Police Station at the present time is1 a disgrace to the Derailment. Messrs. Wellish and Poole, of the Harbours and Rivers Depart ment, visited the Ferry last -week to ...
WEDDING BELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
WEDDING BELLS. ! At St. John's Church, Wilber force, on Friday, 23rd February, the marriage of Mr. Alexander McKay, eldest son of Mr. James McKay, Hawkesbury River, to Miss Lilian Grace Greentree, eldest daughter of Mr. Henry Greentree, of Wilberforce, took place. The church was charmingly decorated by friends of the bride, and the ceremony was performed by the Rev. W. Newton, assisted by Rev. Thos. Taylor. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked exceedingly J well in a dress of white silk grenadine, prettily trimmed with white chiffon, silk lace and streamer of white Batin ribbon ; her wreath was composed of orange blossoms, over which fell a tulle bridal vt il. The bridal dress was exquisitely made by Mrs. Thos. Lobb, of Windsor. The bride carried a beautiful shower bouquet of white blos soms, the gift of the bridegroom.

WINDSOR SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 2 March 1900
WINDSOR SCHOOL OF ARTS. ! - The following members of Com mittee of the above Institution were present at a meeting on Tuesday evening last, held for the purpose of considering the tenders for addi tions to the building, &c. Rev. C. A. White, president (in the chair), Messrs. W. I. Perry, G. McCauley, J. B. Brown, J. D. Smith, C. E. Broome, H. E. Manchee, J. T. Fitzgerald, G. Greenwell, and J. T. Orr. Three tenders were received, ranging from £200 to £228. A general discussion took place, and on the motiou of Mr. J. B. Brown, seconded by Mr. H. E. Manchee, it was decided to refer the matter to the Building and Im provement Committee, to confer with the architect, with a view of having the cost considerably cur tailed. It was thought by the Committee that the lowest tender was greatly in excess of the amount the Insti tution would have at its disposal for expenditure on the additions aud alterations. ----- Some of Windsor's, worst type i of larrikins set on a Mr. Arnold, of Ca...
