Ahothki! self-coiistituted ccnsor of the Press has arisen, this lime- in a; plftce known as Balliua, and in a frantic and knock-kneed endeavor to hustle itself forward and let the gaping universe know it lives, it condescends to give The Sun a word of advice in refer ence t-o what it should publish. This self-stultified spot of mildew on tlm face of journalism is known as the Nortli Coast Beacon , and wo horeby give it a free advertisement. It lias recently changed it name — and nature. The lleacuri — a beacon for mud-barges, judg ing by the class of journals which quote it — guesses we are ' commencing to com peto with the I Far Cry in the way of re ligious admonition,' and then proceeds to give its readers tho Beacon's opinion of the ' religious admonitions.' We do not, as a rule, ' talk back,' or descend to kick any cur continually yelping at our heels. W e prefer treating them with silent contempt. But in this instance we feel compelled to bond the Beacon over our knee, and span...
PAYING TOLL. [Newspaper Article] — The Raleigh Sun — 4 February 1898
PAYING TOLL. According to a decision come to by three local magistrates at the Morpeth police court, a person can cross in a ferry and when he refuses to pay he cannot be punished. Mr. Thompson, who took tho point which secured this result, stated that the Act, which wns a very old one, contained one of those imperfections which crop up in every Act wlu'ch. passes a legislature. The ferryman, however, lias his remedy ; he can refuse to put the person across until he is paid ; or if ho is part of tho way over when tho per son refuses to pay I10 can put him back again on the samo side.

YARNS. RIGHT AWAY FROM THE SUN. [Newspaper Article] — The Raleigh Sun — 4 February 1898
YARNS. . H ? ItlOHT A WAV 'FROM TIIK SDN. Oujt boastful, plausible, flippant Prem ier is a past-master in the art of political intrigue. There is an old saying that ' the occasion brings forth the man,' and that- saying is amply illustrated by the condition of our social- and political life in New South Wales at. the present time. It appears that whetr Mr. Reid was elected as the leader of the freetrade party, the advent of the labor party, the socialists, and single-taxers combined formed a third political power, strong enough to hold tlie balance of power be tween the freetraders and the protection ists. The freetraders needed a man to lead them who could be all things to all men, and whose ambition for power would overcome all scruples as regards tbe means by which the end might be ob tained. Sir Henry Parkes was too mast erfnl a character to pander to any person or clique, so lie. was to be left in proud: isolation, and Bruce Smith, McMillan, nnd Wise, who then were the stronges...
THE DORRIGO SCRUB [Newspaper Article] — The Raleigh Sun — 11 February 1898
THE DORRIGO SCRUB Ouu correspondent roccntly stated that it was rumored that extensive areas of the Dorrigo were to be locked up against settlement. We are in a position to state that there is no foundation for the report, and that tlio Government are quite will ing to see the whole of this fertile brush settled. So far the Department states that though many blocks are parcelled out for homestead selection at cheap rates, but very few have availed them selves of the privilege of settling on them. A main road has been cut through the lirush, and this to some extent affords access. Portion of the brush has for some time been a timber reserve, but we (. Examiner ) are assured that if-, the Gov ernment saw the available land taken up, further settlement would be facilitated by tlie revocation of this reserve. : Want of proper access appears at present - to :? be the chief hindrance to the settlement of ; the Dorrigo country,;: \
