Harwood Island. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
Harwood Island. THURSDAY. MUTUAL IMPEOVEMENT SOCIETY.-An initiatory step has been taken' at Palmer's Island to form a Mutual Improvement Society. This ia a step in the right direction, and it is to be hoped that their efforts will be attended with beneficial results. There can be no doubt as to the good results which attend the establishment of any educational avenues. Some few years ago an association of this sort existed at Harwood; bnt it eventually went the way of all flesh. I would suggest that four young men take np this matter, and resuscitate the Mutual Improvement Society. Although we have a Good Templar lodge, which in itself is a Mutual Improvement Society of the highest order of merit, still there are some who object to join, and for their benefit I would recommend the establishment of a Mutual Improvement Society, which, if worked systematically, would afford entertainment and instruction. These are virtues that are not properly fostered by men, who should remember that...

The Sculling Championship. Particulars of tho Race. i Ur to a short time heforo tue start Searle was tho favorito, from £0000 to Ü7000 beiug laid on him at 0 to 4. On the boats accompanying the race, however, wero many frioudB of O'Connor, who received extensive commissions from Canada to back him, and they did so heavily, with the result that the betting veered round, and 5 to ß against u connor was tue ruling price when tue pair Btarted. It was a perfect dav for rowing, mid au enormous concourse of spectators Hued tho course. The start was by mutual conBent, and O'Connor, with great quickness, bent first to work. This gained for him a considerable advantage, for when the first stroke was com- pleted O'Connor led hy a length forward from tho canvas. In tlio first minute thc Canadian obtained half a length lead, but he seemed Hurried, and too anxious to got away : while Searle, pulling well through a splendid stroke, soeuioil . to be taking matters easily.

Political and Social Letter. SYDNEY, TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 19 October 1889
[Political and Social Letter.! Br S. 0. SYDNEY, TÜESDAI'. THE Newcastle election has resulted contrary both, to my wishes and expectations. Mr. CUJSLET has been elected by a substantial majority. I do not think this implies that the constituency is back- sliding from the fiscal faith it proposed at the last general election. It means that Mr. GBARAH. was not a popular candidate, and that many of the Protectionists are ashamed at the recent notorious proceedings of Mr. CRICK, in the Assembly. Mr. Carley obtained only about 100 votes more than were recorded for the most successful of the Free trade candidates at the general election, but. since that period several hundred new names have been added to the roll. On the other hand, Mr. Graham polled some 400 votes fewer. This indicates that hundreds of the Protectionists did not vote at all, and in my judgment, they abstained for the reasons given. Graham did nothing in Parliament; the fact is, he ought not to have been sent there, for h...

The Latest Cablegrams. TFBOM 01TB COEBESPONDENT.] London, Sunday. PBINCE BISMARCK informed the Czar of Russia that he considered an agreement between Great Britain and Russia, in regard to . Asia, both possible and desirable. The Czar denies the report that Russia intends doubling her strategic lines of railway. Bismarck is convinced that the Czar will never begin war against Germany. The Czar has invited Emperor William to attend the Russian military manoeuvres, next summer, which invitation the Emperor has accepted. 3000 coal miners at Durham have struck for reduction in hours of labour. 15,000 other colliers threaten to strike for a similar demand. ; The Zulu chiefs Dinnizulu and Undabaka, for rebeUing against British rule, have been exiled to St. Helena for 12 and 15 years respectively.

The Searle-O'Connor Race [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 22 October 1889
I The Searle-O'Connor Race. I THE following items are gleaned from messages to the American Press : Previous to the Searle-O'Connor race, Hanlan predicted that the Canadian would win by a length and a half, but interrogated after the race he replied :"I have no doubt but that Searle is the most wonderful man that was ever seen in a boat." The universal opinion in New York previous to the race was that Searle would defeat O'Connor, and in San Francisco the Australian was backed almost to a man. A message to the New York Herald after the race says : In a boat Searle looks a champion and a wonder. On land there is nothing wonderful about him. That Searle is fit to be the champion sculler of the world none who saw him defeat O'Connor will deny. In lOsecs. after the start O'Connor gained a length, and nothing bnt cries of " O'Connor !" was heard. In two minutes from the start there was only one man on the Thames, and his name waa Searle. After the race the young Australian looked as if h...

Inside were canvas straps arranged to support Graham while on his voyage. The adventurous Graham entered the barrel through the manhole, and crouched upon the bottom, fastening himself with the straps. The manhole was then closed and battered down with, a tarpaulin barrel and towed into the middle of the river, a short dis...

Harwood Island. MONDAY. A LARGE MEETING waa held here on Thursday, at Coyle'B hotel, with the object of urging the Minister to have the road between Harwood and J ;* Chatsworth opened up and formed immediately. * £ Several old residents of both places complained bitterly of the delay in carrying out thia work.
