Mr. Egeson in Reply. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

Mr. Egeson in Reply. Having noticed the strictures of the Government astronomers of Victoria and Sonth Australia upon my prediction of a coming three years' drought I repeat my firm conviction on the subject. I will stake my position (my little all) on the issue, and if the Government astronomers will do likewise the public would have an opportunity of judging as to whether an equal intensity of conviction prevailed pro. and con. the subject at issue. The fact that I am a young man with only four or five years experience in meteorology should not, I think, be adverse to me. Meteorology properly EO called-not mere weather love- is of quite recent development ; and not only is it continually developing new features, such as were not even dreamt of a genera ! tion ago, but it is also yearly throwing off the j coverings of its embryo state, so that anyone who5 studied meteorology 20 or 30 years ago has to unlearn j much of his early training before he can follow I present developments, ...

Lawrence. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

Lawrence. _ . MONDAY. School of Arts.-Upon readingt he report of the entertainment of last Tuesday night, I find two omissions. Mr. and Mrs. Reifern's duet " Whispering hope," which was so excellently rendered and appreciated, was not mentioned, nor the fact that Mrs. M'Millan aoted as accompanist in a majority of cases, and it is only necessary to add that the suocess of the entertainment was in a great measure due to that lady's kind and generous assistance, which, no doubt, is amply appreciated by the committee. Private Match.-A private match was run on the Lawrence racecourse on Saturday afternoon last, between Mr. W. Brownlie's Why Not and Mr. £ Beiry's Eclipse, both Sst up ; distance about f-mile, for £10 a-side. About 150 people turned out t} witness the race, which created a good deal of interest. Each horse seemed to be fancied, bnt it was evident from the start of the race the mare was over-matched. Eclipse never being asked to raje, winning easily by about five lengths. A...

Address at Maclean. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

Address at Maclean. I A lecture was delivered ou Saturday evening, in the School of Arts, by Sir Thomas Esmonde; the representative of the Irish National League, upon the Home Rule question, and despite the high price of admission (5s) there was a large attendance. Mr. D. See occupied the chair, and introduced the lecturer with the hope that he would be allowed a fair aud impartial bearing. He (the chairman) bad come rather to learn something than to ppeak upon the subject. The LECTUBBE (who was received with cheers) said that he had the greatest possible pleasure in making the acquaintance of the people of this dis- trict. He had heard a great deal of the town and wished to judge for himself whether it had been fairly spoken of. Now that he had seen it, he could safely say that he hardly ever came across a locality more blessed by nature, with fertility of soil. &c, and a town that bore upon its face better evidences of future prosperity, in the whole course of his travels....

Ulmarra. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

I Ulmarra. I MONDAY. I Butter Factory.-A meeting of the committee was held at Hough's hotel on Saturday night, but I am sorry to say that matters were not much advanced, the requisite number of shares not having yet been taken up. It was, however, decided to canvas s for shareholders, and I would urge on all who have the welfare of the district at heart to come forward if they can. The committee have expended a good deal of time and energy in this movement, and it seems that a little more will be required on their part before the company can be floated successfully. Let perseverance win the day 1 I do not think that there is any opposition to the movement, but interest in it seems to have considerably abated, owing probably to its having hung a little. Mails.-Referring to the application made at the last council meeting, for an effort to be made towards extending the hours of busin'sa of the Telegraph office here, it seems to me that there is I a mach more argent need of increased m...

The Great Labour Movement. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

The Great Labour Movement. THE dook labourers at Flensborg, a German sea- port town on the Baltic, have struck work. It is believed that the strike is connected with the Lon- don unions. News of a strike of German dock labourers at once recalls the mining strikes in Prussia in May last, as the history of these will throw some light on the probable result of that now announced. The miners on strike, through their delegates, refused the offer of the Social Democratic section in Parliament to take their case in hand and defend their interests, and it was the Imperial Deputy, Herr Baumback, who o'rew up an agreement on behalf of the men which was sub- mitted to the Emperor and Prince Bismarck. When a deputation of employers waited upon the Emperor he impressed upon them the advisability of granting the demands of the men so far as they were justifiable. He said it was desirable to put an end to the strike as speedily as possible, for all sec- tions of the population have suffered from s...

Saturday's Cricket Matches. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

Saturday's Cricket Matches. ¡ CARLTONS Y. WARWICKS.-These clubs met on the Oval, and the result was the defeat of the I former on the firss innings by 35 runs. The Carl- j tons first occupied the creases, but none of the team reached double figures, the bowling honours being fairly well divided between Smith and E. Davies, the latter's wickets being all taken in the field. The fielding was very fair. Laing 8, R. Brindle 9, Henson 9, J. Giovanelli 2, Wolseley 5, C. Giovanelli 9, Klaus, Brown, M'Donald, Moyes (n.o.), nil ; sundries 5, total 51. Smith 4 wickets for 17, Davies i for 25, Bright 1 for 4. Several of the Warwicks obtained double figures, though Thorne was let off once. Hughes' was a well-merited contribution, while Laman totted up his runs by steady play. The slows of R. Brindle seemed to puzzle the batsmen, and were very effec- tive. Giovanelli going on late made a good aver- age, but the other trundlers were punished. All the batsmen scored, Thorne 19, Oakes 12, M'Farlane...

The Agent-Generalship. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

The Agent-Generalship. THE Diibhn Despatch says :-the rumour is being revived that Sir Henry Parkes has a wistful eye on the office of Agent-General for the colony. It is said that Sir Saul Samuel wanted to resign some time ago, when his son died, but was induced to keep the billet warm until Sir Henry felt inclined to take it. That time, it is thought, has now arrived. The Premier, some of his friends say, is not in love with his colleagues, and certainly does not like the political situation. He cannot rule the former, as he did previous administrations, nor can he make sure of the latter. He would like, there- fore, to cast the dust of New South Wales from his feet, and spend the evening of his life in the land of his birth, there to devote his leisure moments to certain literary labours, the principal of which is an autobiography. He has set his mind on the publication of this work, and he has met and cor- responded with all sorts and conditions of men some famous and others not...

New Gaol at Grafton. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

New Gaol at Grafton. THE Member writes to the Mayor : " I have your wire Esking if provision had been made on the Loan Estimates for a new gaol at Grafton, to which I replied in the negative. I enclose copy of letter sent to the Minister for Works on the subject." [COPY.] " Sydney, 9th October, 1889. " Dear sir.-I have for many years been agitating for a new gaol at Grafton. In 1883 or 1881 £4000 was voted towards the erection of a new gaol, and a site was selected. The old gaol is insufficient and unsuitable, and frequent reports have been made as to its rottenness, and that any large expenditure upon it would be wasted. Besides, the old gaol is in the heart of the town, and is quite an eyesore to the town. I trust.Bir, that you will atouce carefully leak over the correspondence, and I feel sure it will convince you of the extreme urgency of. the matter ; and I beg of yon to make provision in the next Estimates to carry ont the work. -JOHN SEE."

Loan Vote Alderman M'KITTRICK said he had received an extraordinary published from the Argus, which made him say that it was unfair to bring forward the motion on Friday, as three Aldermen were absent, who he believed were averse to borrowing. He denied having used such terms. He also pointed out another discrepancy. A report in the Grip was worse, for he was represented as saying something about the visit of Sir T. G.

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 15 October 1889

Echoes and Opinions. TOWARDS the end of the month the district may, we understand, look forward to the promised visit of the Works Committee, We learn that so far as present arrangements go, the Committee have «o far fixed the time. Possibly the end of the month may be a busy one ia many respects, what with the visit of the Works Committee, the spoken ?of Free-trade Deputation, and the visit of Mr. ÍOHN SEE, M.L.A. The electors and those in- terested in public affairs will have nw h to interest them. It would be well that these should not all clash together. For all to be ¡here at the .one time would over-burden the public mind more than is absolutely necessary. We hope to hear our Mem- bers account of. his stewardship previous to the arrival of either the Public Works Committee or the Minister for Public Works, who, it is said, ii coming to sound the Free-trade trumpet.

Armidale. OCTOBER ll. THE LOCAL HOSPITAL.-During last quarter 41 patients were admitted to the Armidale and New England Hospital, 31 discharged, and at present 17 remain. There is a debt on the institution of about £800, which will be reduced to something below £600 when the amonnt to credit is handed in.

The Defences of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889

The Defences of Australia. MAJOR-GENERAL EDWARDS has forwarded his report on the defence forces of Victoria to the Governor. The report recommends that the de- fence forces be placed at once upon a proper foot- ing by such organisation as will enable the colonies to combine for mutual defence. The Major-General proposes that on a population basis Victoria and New South Wales should each furnish three bri- gades, and Sonth Australia and Queensland one each. . The Governments of the various colonies should agree to organise their forces on the same system, and an officer of the rank of Lieutenant Colonel should be appointed to inspect in time of peace and command the whole in time of war. General Edwards recommends a uniform railway gauge, the extension of the railways to Port Darwin, West Australia, the establishment of a federal military college and an ammunition factory. The military forces of Victoria, the General says, are in a satisfactory state, and the defences at the Heads ar...
