Casino Jockey Club Annual Races [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 5 May 1903
Casino Jockcy Aimniil Races The annual race meeting of tho Casino Jockey Club was held on t.ha R. R- Turf Club's course on Friday last, and, as was to be expected after tho record attendance at the Show, attracted a big crowd, the number present being ostiniated at over 700. Fair fiolds faced the starler in all tho events, and the racing on the whole was good. Tho disqualifications onforced by the Club at their last mooting havo evidently had a good cttect, ana ens general opinion was that tlia whole of the starters were out to win. The course was in fair order, and no accidents re sulted, so that, the services of the hon. medical officer of tlio Club (Dr. Stewart) who was present, fully prepared for any emergency, were happily not required. Despite the fact that there were six race3 on the card, and the first race was set down for 1.30, the events were run off well to time. Tho officials worked with a will throughout, and are-.t^ be congratu lated on the success of the meeting. The...

The L-»te Mir BBector Sliiedonalil. THE CHARGES DENIED. Fhkmaxtlk (W.A.), Salm-day. — Ac- cording to advices received by the R.M.S. Ophir, the charges against the lato Sir Hector Macdonakl have been proved; by police inquiries, ' to have no foundation. Popular sympathy in Ceylon is greatly against the Go vernor. According to a late file of the Col ombo papevs, a statement/published in some papers saying that the King re ceived Macdonald in a special audience is wholly nntrue. He saw no one in London, where lie remained only 24 hours, beyond the heads of the military departments. He was at headquarters, and was ordered by the War authori ties to return at once to Ceylon to be tried by court-martial. ThLs he begged to be allowed not to do, and a some what painful interview followed, during which the late General burst into tears, and resulting in his promising to go to France, aud think the matter over. He left London with the knowledge that, so far as the military authorities were co...
A Dangerous Weed. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 8 May 1903
A Uaiigeroiisi Weed. Mr. J. H. Maiden contributes, the following to the ' S. M. Herald' : — ' I am glad you have drawn attention to one of the St. John's worts under the heading of 'A Dangerous Weed.' Contrary to a very widely held opinion we have 110 State machinery to cope with noxious weeds, except to a very slight extent, and it is indeed very difficult for the State, to provide such measures. Ihe remedies (so far as they go) are in the hands of the people themselves, who should remember that ' a stitch iu time saves nine,' and the best way to diffuse information con cerning these pests i« through the press. Newspapers will put people on the alert, and every landholder who notices a new weed on his holding should write to the Department, of Agsiculture about it. This particular St. John's wort is known to botanists as Hypericum perforatum, and it occurs in remarkable profusion in the cold districts of Bright, Victoria. I was travelling there during tiie sum mer of 1899-1900, and...

Women and the Franchise. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 8 May 1903
Women ami tlie Franchise, At the convention of the Austral asian Women's Christian Temperance Union, on Thursday, the franchise re port by Lady Holder (South Aus tralia) stated that, in 110 department had a more decided advance been made. The Federal franchise was a great privilege, and when women need it as such, a great step towards the improvement of social aud moral laws would have been taken. They felt sure that the time was not. far distant when adult suffrage for the' State as well as the Commonwealth would be universal throughout Australia. Mrs. Kirklaud (New Zealand), who is 011 her way to the World's Conven tion, addressing the delegates, said that the last general elections in New Zealand indicated in a marked manner what a powerful victory in the cause of temperance women had achieved by the exercise of their votes. There was not wautiug evidence, howover, that they still had much to fight for, as(the controllers of tlie drink traffic were doing everything in their power...

(To the Editor of the Richmond River Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 8 May 1903
(To the Kditor of the llichmond Jliccr KxprciS.) Sir — In a recent issue my friend and fellow committeeman, Mr. W. H. Car mont, wishes publicly to correct Mr. A. C. Simpson and myself re our erroneous ? ideas of manliness. That Mr. Carmont's letter is tho result of mature considera tion I have not the slightest doubt ; but even the opinions of the uulpit and the ?-press are sometimes at variance. Now, Sir, the facts of the case are as follows : — Some time back an application (with deposit) was made to the secretary of tho School of Arts for the hall for the pur pose of holding a ' boxing match.' Cer tiiin members of the committee objected to the granting of the application, but the President held, and rightly so too, that us the secretary had accepted the deposit tlie hall was, legally speaking, engaged Iri order to prevent a repetition of this it was 'understood that such applications iri future should be dealt with by the com riiittee. A second application was made, and by a fair...

(To the Editor of the Richmond River Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 8 May 1903
(To the Editor of the Richmond River Expreis.) Sir, — I see by advertisement in the Coraki paper, that the Tatham people ava trying to ruin the efforts of the Casino directors re the successful float ing of the Casino Co-operative Butter Company. As one who watches the district aud knows well the friendly feel ing of the inhabitants towards Casino, I can safely deny the charge, and the Casino people should have more sense bium accuse uu 01 suuu narrow umiueu ness. This advertisement is evidently a shot at the directors and shareholders of the Coraki Butter Factory and opens up a big question of purchase. Mr. Editor, I ask you to believe me when I tell you the Coraki shareholders did all they could to keep the Casino fellows from buying at £3500, as £1500 was lost to the dairymen of your district through the inexperience of those gentle men who now call themselves directors. Had they held out they could havo pur chased at half the money, aud I'll tell you why. It'was arranged that th...

Precedence. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Express and Tweed Advertiser — 8 May 1903
Precedence. A very delicate question of preced ence has arisen — Who is entitled to rank next after visiting Governors? The Chief Justice, the Prime Minister of Australia, the President of tho Senate, or the principal ecclesiastical dignitary ? After the Prime Minister come State Jfremiers, and then ordinary Federal Ministers, but where arc Privy Council lors to be- placed ? Ordinary Ministers object to conceding . the pass to Privy Councillors. It seems that Lord Hope to'uh (the first Governor-General), the Federal Ministry,' Captain Wallinnton, and the Colonial Office have all drawn tip lists, and none of them agree. ? I
