LATEST COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 15 July 1882

LATEST COMMERCIAL. Operations generally have been on a very moderate scale. Trade sales of flour are making at £13 10s. A line of 50 tons has been taken up at a slight concession on the price named. Wheat is firmer, but transactions have been of no account whatever. At auction only SO bags were disposed of at Gs 21d for very me dium, the bulk being passed in. Feed ing grains are actively inquired for. At auction about 200 bags thin feed oats were cleared off at from 4s 2d to 4s 2.d. The balance of the catalogue was, how ever, withdrawn, sellers requiring oan ad vance. Privately a brisk demand, which has embraced milling qualities, has arisen, and offers have been made at 4s 4d ; holders now require 4s 5d. The only sale reported is of feeding sorts, nmd comprise 350 bags, quitted at from 4s 3d to 4s 31,d. Peas were quitted at auction to a smalfextent at 5s, but that figure was refused for the larger lines submitted. The railway authorities, in order to check the frauds practised by p...

The Advertiser. PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY, THURSDAY AND SATURDAY MORNING. Bairnsdale, Saturday, July 15, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 15 July 1882

The Advertiser. PUBLISIHED EVEIIY TUESDAY, TIIURSDAY AND SATURDAY MORNINIG. Bairnsdale, 'atslrday, July 15. 1892. IT is extremely satisf'actory to perceive that journals, which were most clamorous in favor of th,, stock tax at the time of its inception, are at length cognisant of the fact that the imiposition of the tax has been attedtlcd by no benefits to any class, but has proved a positive evil to the community at large. Under these circumstances, with the sulpport of the cction of the press which always and consistently olpposed the tax, iwe hare every hope of the llovenlllt now on foot to induce the Go'vernmelnt to abolish the tax proving successifl, and that imme li?tely. It has over been a matter for surlprise that lMr. lterry received the support he did when he proposed the ax, but that when it was imposed, and vhllon it was perceived how injuriously 'ts operation affected a large number of "nte:ests, it was simply astonishing that .he continuonre of the impost should not en...

TIIE CllISIS IN EGYPT, [AGE CABLF.OCar.] LONDON, 13th July. Sir F. Beauchamp Soymour has decided to postpone the landing of troops for the present. He is desirous of waiting for the arrival of the further inforcements, which are on the way to Alexandria. The Egyp tian army, seeing the uselessness of at tempting to hold Alerandria under the fire from the British fleet, are evacuating the fortifications, with a view of taking up a position beyond the range of the British guns. On their way through the city the soldiery pillaged the houses of the principal inhabitants. Fires are raging in all parts of Alexandria, some of them caused by the explosion of shells, and others by the prisoners who have been released from the various gaols. The latter, immediately on finding themselves at liberty, commenced to pillage the European quarter. They met with a determined resistance on the part of some of the Europeans, when a general massacre of the latter ensued. Some of the Europeanu managed to ...

OUR OMEO LETTER. Friday, July 14. [Newspaper Article] — Bairnsdale Advertiser and Tambo and Omeo Chronicle — 18 July 1882

OUR OMEO LET'ER. (rnoM OUR OWtN OORRBSPOPDI·T.) Friday, July 14. The Omeo Shire Council Revision Court sat today, when about 18 names were added to the roll. The council generally expressed the opinion that some of the excuses for not having paid rates in time were hardly "g'ood enough" but for this time they would be allowed. Cr. Coughlan thought that in future a stand should be made with regard to this matter, and unless the reasons assigned were really good no application should be entertained. With this understanding the names were added, andl we shall see if the opinions expressed will be adhered to this time next year. The latest in shire council matters is that Cr. Coughlan intends to follow up hIis protest against the payment of the survey fees for the Omeo common passed at the last ordinary meeting by applying for a writ of mandamus for Cr. Chauncy to show cause why hle should not be ousted as from his position as councillor. It is very difficult to tell how it will termina...
