Insurance and Assurance. Prompt Legislation Required. (WRITTEN FOR THE C. AND R. EXAMINER.) [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Insurance and Assurance. Prompt Legislation Required. (WHITTEN FOR THE C. AND R. EXAMINER.) THE discussion -which has lately arisen in conse- quence of the result of an action in which the Equitable Insurance Society of New York was involved, may have the effect of making some people more careful as to the financial position and soundness of the offices in which they insure their lives, than they have been in the past. During the last few years quite a number of life insurance offices, all on the mutual principle, and profes- sing to hold out more or less specially attractive Inducements to the insured in the form of low premium charges, time of payment of premiums, large bonuses, indisputability of policies (immunity from the clause respecting death by suicide or the hands of justice, it is presumed is liberally ton ceded in this) have sprung into existence, and fortunately for the public, some of them have gone out of it. Still some of them remain, and the country has been fairly ...

Echoes and Opinions. RAILWAY PROPOSALS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Echoes and Opinions. RAILWAY PROPOSALS. MB. BRUCE SMITH is reported by the Herald to have said, when speaking in reply to a question aBked by Mr. PLUMB with, regard to the proposed Cowra-Forbes railway line, " It did not follow because the Government were not at present prepared to recommend many of the proposals to the Public Works Committee, that, therefore, they were negatived for all time. Many of them possessed great merit, but there waa no man in the Department whose business it was to investigate them. ' He had to trust very much to reports and memorials from Progress Committees, whose figures very often conld not be relied upon. He had refrained from putting before the Government any proposals which he could not personally recommend to he sent on to the Public Works Committee. There were now many Bailway proposals in so immature a condition that they could not be brought forward." After referring to two or three proposals, he went on to say " A hasty decision on such great s...

Skating Carnival. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Skating Carnival. THE Fancy DreES Carnival at the Bink on Thurs day evening was a great success. The attendance was large, and fancy costumes were not only numerous, but were in many instances particularly attractive. There was a great variety of character, and though there was but little trouble in deciding the best lady character, the voting of the com- mittee appointed for that purpose was pretty equal between two gentlemen, who both represented their characters well. The first event of the evening was the Champion Skating race, which brought out three aspirants for the honor-Messrs. R. Vowell, F. Hill, and T. Boss. The contest was keen, and but for an accident near the termination, might have resulted differ- ently to what it did. Boss got away with, the lead, Yowell next. At the third round Boss led by 4 yards, Hill going into second place. This order was maintained to the 9th round, when Hill closed with Boss ; Yowell 4 yards in the rear. The two former raced round several tim...

"Is the Fall of England Near?" A Russian View. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

"Is the Ml oí England Hear?" A Russian View. THE Colhirns United Service Magazine ! says a Russian writer (N. Kunitryin) asks himself the above question, " Is the fall of England near?" and it is in the belief that his reasonings may be found both interest iner and instructive to our readers that I translate the following. The author begins iy quoting a few lines, written, over half a century ago, by the poet Khomiakov, and of which also I subjoin a translation : "For thee. Empress of the 6eas, A day will come and 'tis not remote : Thy purple, thy gold, thy splendour . All will pass, will pass as a dream. The thunderbolt in thy hands will cool, Thy sword shall cease to glitter, And the vefy thought of prosperity | Shall quit thy sons for ever." " England, hy her politics in the late Russo-Turkish war, roused the deep anti- pathy of the whole of the Russian nation. Prom all parts of Russia, from her centre as . from her farthest limits, one only heard of English selfishness, of the i...

FRIDAY'S SITTING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

FBUIAÏ'S SITTIJC«. FRIDAY, 7 E.M.-The Assembly is still sitting. | An angry debate was continued up till 3 o'clock, when Mn HAYNES moved that the question be put, which was carried by 43 to 31. Mr. Reid's motion to reduce the amount to £500 was lost on voices. The original motion was then put and carried by 38 to 12, many of the Opposi- tion members walking out of the Chamber. When the motion was about to be put a dis- orderly scene occurred, Mr. CBICK rushing up to the table, called out (addressing Mr. Haynes on the Government benches) " Bloody Orange hounds and thieves." After the division was taken, Mr. Melville (the Chairman) took an unusual course by ordering the Sergeant to summon the Speaker. A discussion ensued when the Speaker took the i chair, it being contended that the Premier should ' have moved the Chairman out of the chair. The , House, however, supported the Chairman in the I course taken, and the Speaker ruled that the action taken by the Chairman to restore order I...

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

XininS»AY'S Is the Legislative Council, Bills to reduce the quorum to 20, and to prevent the lapsing of bills by the termination of the session, were read a first time. The Standing Orders were suspended to allow the Railway Debt Reduction Bill to pass in one day, when the House rose. IN the Assembly, Mr. GRAHAME resigned his seat for Newcastle. Mr. CRICK wanted to know whether the Premier intended to prorogue Parliament before Christmas ? Sir HENRY PARKES said the question was un- warranted, and he must decline to reply. Mr. FARNELL called attention to the non-pay- ment of Civil Servants. Mr. M'MILLAN moved the suspension of the Standing Orders to allow the Railway Debt Reduc- tion Bill to pass through all its stages in one day. This gave rise to some discussion, but the motion was carried by 50'to 16. The House then went into Committee of Supply. The debate on the John Davies item was resumed by Mr. TRAILL, who was followed by Messrs. FRANK SMITH,-TURNER, SEAVER, GARV AN, REID, "W...

Daring Outrage at Dubbo. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Daring Outrage at Dubbo. RELIABLE information states that a cabman named John Massart was engaged to fetch a passenger from the district surveyor's (Mr. Smith's) house on the northern boundary of the town, facing the Coonamble road. On getting down to open the gate a man with a mask on his face presented a revolver at Massart, telling him to bail up. The masked man looked into the cab, and when he found no one there ordered the cabman to drive on. On arriving at Mr. Smith's, the cabman's report created great consternation. He managed to get a bulldog revolver without cartridge?. He was leav- ing Mr. Smith's, when three other men came in with ropes hanging to their arms, and reported that they had been stuck up and tied to a fence and robbed, but had managed to escape. Massart came up to town and reported the matter to Sub Inspector Cameron, offering him his revolver, but not having any cart-.idges the officer refused to take it. Massart came on into town, got cartridges, loaded his ...

Original Lines. A SPRING-TIDE EVE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Original Lines. j A SPBING-TIDÉ EVE. The evening' yhades are falling-, '?' And softening raya that were bright, . " While birds to each other are calliug, As if bidding adieu for the night. ? The beautiful flowers are dozing', In nooks that are dreamy and fair, So silent and sweet their reposing. With charms that are subtle "and rare. The ferns in thu dells are springing. ; Sweet dells that ore shaded in gloom ? Where cedar-vines are a-clinging,' Now creamy and white in thtir bloom, ' Tlie bronze-wing is softly cooing A breathing of love to his mate, Ko passion, nor anger subduing, They are tones he can ever relate. The birds their last notes are renewing, For happiness with them shall remain, That maa is for ever pursuing, In city and forest and plain. ; September, ISS'J. EUCALYPTUS.

FLIES AS CABBIEBS OF CONTAGION.-Since the recognition that in many diseases the infective principle ia particulate, the possible means of con- veyance of the vims from one to another individual have widened. Attention has lately been called to the part which may conceivably be ployed in this direction by tbe agency of the house-fly. Our con- temporary the Liverpool Mercury (July 25) reminds us that the granular ophthalmia of the shores bf the Nile-a true plague of Egypt-has been shown to be propagated through this medium ; and has further alluded to the discovery by Dr. Alessi that the bacillus tuberculosis may exist in the intestines of flies which have been feeding on phthisical sputa. Indeed, it would appear that there is hardly any direction, either in our mode of living, eating, or environment, whereby we can avert the possi- bility of the transference to ourselves of this ubiquitous bacillus, and life would become intoler- able were it not for the well-grounded belief that pht...

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. I ESTABLISHED 1859.] SATURDAY MOBKLKG, OCTOBEE 5TH, 18S9. TAXATION FOR MUNICIPAL PURPOSES. THE Municipal Association Conference hav- ing succeeded in passing a resolution affirm- ing the desirability that all taxes for muni- cipal purposes should be raised from land value only, have taken, no doubt, the proper course by bringing the resolution under the notice of the PBEHIEE, in view of the so long promised Local Government Bill. The PREMIER, in replying to the deputation pre- senting the resolution, expressed his approval of the course adopted in bringing the subject under his notice, and suggested that he would be thankful for any assistance that might be given by the Association to the1 Government in settling the provisions of the proposed Bill. He was anxious to get all the information possible from those who practically understood the question of Muni- cipal Government. So far as the particular resolution was concerned, he could only promise ...

"Why should Clifford care a pin whether they are here or not." Ella, thus rebuked, coloured slightly and bent her head over her plate.

CHAPTER VIII.—YOUNO LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

CHAPTER VIII.-YOUNO LOVE. LADY ELEANOR WESTRAY'S entertainments were invariably a success. Whatever she undertook she performed gracefully and well, and she had speedily become a leader of society in the country. Her dinners were never wearisome or monotonous, the guest?, being chosen, with a nice discrimination of character and social qualities, always assimilated well. At Lady Westray's table there was no chance of any guest meeting any individual he or she wished to avoid, no fear of any unpleasant or painful matter becoming the topic of conversa- tion. Lady Eleanor, by some native gift, had made her dinner-table talk an art in itself. She was not lest happy in her larger gathering?. The few assemblies given at West Court were things to be remembered and talked oE for the thorough enjoyment they afforded to the fortunate few who participated therein. There was no crowding, no stiffness, no discomfort of any kind. The hand- some rooms were exquisitely decorated, effectively lighte...

Grafton Police Court. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 October 1889

Grafton Police Court. ON Tuesday, before the P.M., Janies Goodwin (not of Grafton) under remand for stealing from a dwelling, again appeared before the Court. After the evidence previously taken had been read over, Samuel Chadwick deposed that he is a bushman residing on Upper Kangaroo Creek. On July 1st was absent from his hut for about an hour and a half, leaving it unlocked. On returning missed some flour, butter and sugar, also a bag containing a purse, in which were some coppers, and another with three £1 notes and some silver. The notes were on the A. J.S. Bank, and one or two had an impression stamp. One of the notes produced bears a similar impression. To the best of his belief the purse produced is his. Accused elected summary jurisdiction, and pleaded not guilty. He said he was a Freethinker, and did not wish to give evidence. He made a state- ment to the effect that he never was at Kangaroo Creek in his life, and that he got the money a9 change from a person he met near G...

THE marvellous powers by which birds can guide themselves from the Pole to the Mediterranean, from che White Nile to the Thuringian forests, are the most inscrutable and profoundly interesting of all natural wonders. The scalpel and the crucible of the vivisectionist and the chemist cannot pene- trate its secrets, and the evolutionist may fit his pet theories as he will to its mysteries ; he will fail to explain it.
