Twenty-eight Stories High. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 8 May 1889

Twenty-eight Stories High. The twenty-eight storey building scheme' which was so laughed at in the East when the architect first made it public (says the Minneapolis correspondent of the San Fran sinco Jiuttelin) is expected to materialise in this city during the present year. Finan cial backing has been secured, and an office opened wncre plans are exhibited wmen show the ontliuc of 728 rooms, o.ach of which opensf rom the interior court and has a win dow on the outside. The plans are drawn for a building 80ft. square on the level of the sidewalk and tapering a little toward the top. The court within is to be 40ft. square, Mr. Ynrdall, who is exhibiting the plans, has no doubt of success. ' The tower of the New York Produce Exchange,' he says, ' is 240£t. above the sidewalk, aud the elevator runs to within 15ft of the top. That is but 55ft square. The Washington monument is .r)5ft. square at the base, and 520ft. high. Then, why could we not erect a building such as we propose ? It ...

Parliamentary. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 8 May 1889

Parliamentary. The firstGovernment business on the paper of the Assembly was a motion by Mr. Bruce Smith ' that the Government should purchase the land known as Darling Island, at a price not exceeding £133,000.' He pointed out that the Government had power to resume this land, but they thought fit to mention it to the HouBe in order that the House might express its approval or disapproval, and that it might not be said that this was done behind tlie back of Parlia ment. He pointed out that thus property was but now it could be got for a little more than half the sum. The Commissioners believed that this scheme was better and cheaper than the proposal to make the place for the shipment of coal at Longnose point. There was a frontage at Darling Island of about 2.ji)0ft. , while at Longiiose there was on]}' about 1330ft. Mr. Lyue strongly opposed the motion.

CABLE MESSAGES. LONDON, May 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 8 May 1889

CABLE MESSAGES. (From the Sydney Papers.) LONDON, May 2. In the course of his cross-examination before the Special Commission by Sir Richard Webster, Q.C., leading counsel for the Times, Mr. Parnell at tracted much notice by his skilful answering of Sir R. Webster's questions iu regard to the Irish leader's knowledge of Gallagher, Harris, Walsh, Devoy, ISreslin, and other Irish Americans. When asked if he knew whether those men were or were not Fenians, Mr. Parnell said they never told him that they were such. The statements that he had expressed approval of Nolan's past history, and had asserted that none were truer to the Irish cause than those standing beside Nolan, were mere election exaggerations. He admitted that Condon, who conducted the Brett murder, was chairman of the committee at Washington orgaimised to give him (Mr. Parnell) a reception there, and that it was asserted that Con don introduced him to Congress. He knew Fiimerty the dynamiter, and had never repudiated him. ...

Quong Tart on the Chinese Question. [Newspaper Article] — The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal — 8 May 1889

Quong Tart on the Chinese Question. Mr. Quong Tart landed from the steamer Guthrie on Saturday. Interviewed by an Evening News representative he said he was received with great eclat both in Hongkong and Canton. At Canton interviews were held with the Viceroy and the vice-regal Treasurer, two of the highest officials in China. These individuals, from their remarks, led Mr. Tart to believe that the lower classes of China were the principal opponents of our restrictive measures on immigration, and that the Gpvernment of China were not so bitterly opposed to our new laws as was generally supposed. However, in con- sequence of this feeling among its subjects, the Chinese Government were bound to do what they could to lessen the severity of the Chinese restric- tion laws. The Government complsinrd principally of the restrictions placed upon Chinese desirous of intercolonial travelling, and of the alleged hard- ships inflicted by those laws. They also seriously complained of the effect of...

Araluen. {FROM A.

Smith's chum iu Upper Araluen, although it never ceased work, was carried on for some time with a reduced number of hands, but it has now the iuli complement at work again, I am informed, and some very good ground has been come across, and the washing boxes are telling a better tale than they have been doing for some time back. Mr. Smith, who works this claim ou his own account solely, has shown an amount of enterprise iu carry ing ou this mine which is seldom to he met with. Through bid and good report he has pursued the even tenor of his way, never elated in times of success, uor despondent or down ou his luck when he was in the doldrums, to use a nautical phrase Whethcr the claim was paying or proving a. dead lois you would find no change in Mr. Smith. He has now some s...
