Confession of Murder in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 12 October 1889
Coniession of Murder in New Zealand. Ai Clerkenwell Police Court, recently, Robert | Purvis Stewart, who appeared in the uniform of a private of the Soots Guards, was placed in the dock charged on his own confession with the mnrder of a man named Donald Muir, at Otago, New Zealand. The prisoner was stated by a sergeant of his regi- ment to have been in the Guards about six years. His conduct in the army was not altogether satis- factory.

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1850.] SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 12TH, 1889. RAILWAY TO THE COAST. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 12 October 1889
....... : THE '.? ' CtenceM WMwb Examiaer. : I ESTABLISHED 1S50.]_' SATTJRPAX MORNING, OCTOBER 12TH, 1889. RAILWAY TO TUE COAST. TTPQH the MINISTER'S remarks « the Inverell Tailway, are thus commented upon by the Glen linus Guardian :- " The ultimate extension of the tailway to the Coast is merely part of a scheme which is essentially national in its character. The scheme embodies this great principle, but it does Bot depend upon it solely. It covers a wider area, and while on one hand it is sought to encourage . the settlement of population, on the other the originators of: the scheme seek to bring the immense pastoral and agricultural areas of the West within easy access of the Northern as well as the Southern markets." Our friend is scarcely correct in .this statement of the case. The exten- sion of the line to the Coast is the great principle at stake. There is little use in connecting with the: markets North and South aa promoters of settlement. That can be done only by the sho...

CHAPTER X.—STORMS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 12 October 1889
CHAPTER X.-STORMS. ' " Where are you going this morning. Clifford ?" "To Alderley, mother. Won't you come? If you will, I shall get out the dogcart and drive you over. " It is a lovely morning." " No, thank you." Nothing could be more coldly uttered than these three brief words which -fell from Lady Eleanor's lips. Her handsome face was darkly clouded, her lips compressed in bitterest displeasure. " I need not ask when you will be home. I suppose we shall see you in time for dinner. It is a pity I think that you should trouble to return ! even for that. No doubt those who give you your other meals would be happy to allow you to dine with them too." Clifford bit his lip. He could not deny that there was some ground for his mother's remarks, 1 for during the past week he had done little more than sleep at West Court. In the first happy days , of his accepted love he had forgotten, perhaps, something of his duty to others. But, once con- victed of an error, there could be none readier ...

The Battle of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 12 October 1889
The Battle of Life. THE Bally Telvgra.}.U\\n& once again given itself np to the woes of mankind. Its columns are now besieged by a host of embryonic Werters, expatiat- ing on the sorrows, which they have to endure in " The Battle of Life." Letters from all sorts and conditions of men tell of the miseries of lovehss, workle8s, aimless existences ; of defeated hopes, of broken hearts, of ruined live3. The majority of these newspaper scribes are distinctly of the opinion of that delightful essayist, Mr. Jerome K. Jerome, when he says that " Fighting the battle of life is fighting against fearful odds." Some agree with Werter that " this world is all misery," and some preach pleasant platitudes about the beauties and the compensations which are to be found in Nature. To discuss the battle of life adequately would be to expound a philosophy of human existence. The point which seems to surge in many people's minds is whether suicide is, or is not, justifiable. It is no doubt all v...
Clarence and North Coast Farmers' Co-operative Association, Limited. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 12 October 1889
Clarence and North Coast Farmers' uo-operauve- Association, limited. THE Tumut journals to hand contain reports o£ the meet- ing held at that place respecting the formation of a branch Farmers' Association. The MAXAGEE of the Clarence Farmers' Association explained in detail the use and progress of that organisa- tion, and pointed out that the farmers, through their com- pany, had a great control of the market. He dwelt upon the advantages of union amongst the farmers ; and co- operative associations, financially aud socially, would bring them untold benefits; and he showed that such institutions were not antagonistic to the storekeepers. Slr. M'Farlane said that the farmers in Tumut could either form an associ- ation of their own, or take shares in his company. In the latter case they would he placed on equal terms with the original shareholders. The question of freight or the local price of grain had nothing to do with the forming of a co- operative association. Farmers who took s...
