WEST AUSTRALIAN GOLDFIELDS. The Norseman Lixe. Under date of October 25 a correspondent writes from Norseman: — Business here is quite brisk, and the field generally is making rapid strides ; buildinps are bein? erected in all directions, land changing hands daily at high prices.

"POLITICS." [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895

'POLITICS.' ADDRESS BY SIR JOHN DOWNER. 'Politics' was the title of an address de; livered at the Democratic Club by Sir John Downer on Friday week. The chair was occupied by Mr. Spears (president of the club) and there was a large attendance. Sir John Downer, who was well received, said two years ago he had addressed a similar gathering of democrats upon a question which was then very much aeritatine thenublicmiud. viz., land nationalisation. The three cardinal points of the views then entertained by mem bers of the club were first, to take off the duties on the necessaries of life ; secondly, to impose an additional land tax in order to meet any loss created thereby; and lastly, to establish a State Bank. He most respectfully suggested for consideration whether points two and three were pot diametrically in antago nism to each other if the present legislation in favor of State advances represented at all the views entertained by members of the club. The proposal to establish a Sta...

CONTINENTAL AGRICULTURE. Paris, September 28. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895

CONTINENTAL AGRICULTURE. Paris. September 28. . The veterinary snrgeonB in France are a very highly cultivated body of men ; many of ' them' have taken out their university degrees ; several of them have graduated in medicine, bnt cease to practice it, because unremunera tivo and overcrowded. In the French army veterinary surgeons have full officer rank. The International Veterinary Congress just held at Berne was looked forward to with great interest. A pitched and decisive battle was to be fought over the employment of vaccine as an indicator of and a curative agent for glanders and tuberculosis. The most eminent friends and adversaries of the inocula tion question were present. The total value of horses in France is estimated at 1,500 millions of francs, that of cattle is about the same sum, and yet the existence of that vast wealth is at the mercy of epizootics that could be prevented or destroyed. Then there is the danger that human beings can contract the contagion because of ...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. Still the weather continues dry, although on more than one occasion lately there has been every appearance of rain ; but the clouds Ii3ve passed away, and then the sun comes out again as strong as ever. The conditions at present existing are very distressing to the agriculturist, and everything at the present time points to a very poor harvest — one of the worst the colony has seen for many years. Nearly two months have passed since there was anything like a good general rain, and the wheat crops are drying up with the grain scarcely formed in the heads. In the earlier and more favored districts the grain is filling fairly well, but the returns will be far short of what was anticipated several weeks ago. Farmers are busy haymaking in the north, and where there is any crop worth cut ting a large area will be covered by the mower ; it is anticipated in man}' directions that hay will go up to about £8 per ton in 1S9G. At all events it will reach a very high figure, ...

%kz Interbtefoa;. A WONDERFUL TRIP. ' THROUGH AUSTRALIA BY ?-*rh WATER. * 2,574 MILES TRAVERSED. Stories have been told and songs have been sung of the experiences, troubles, and dangers of travellers by land through the great Aus tralian continent, but never has anything but fiction given warrant to the same being done about a trip by water from the north to the south of Australia. Mr. George Clark, a native of Scotland, and his wile have ju3t performed a feat which has several times been attempted, but never accomplished— that is of travelling from Queensland to South Australia by river. They left Gondiwindi, Queensland, on March 2, and between then and November 4, when they reached Goolwa, travelled along the Mclntyre, Barwon, Darling^ and Murray rivers. These four rivers, winch are prac tically one, extend over a distance of 2,574 miles, so it can be seen that it is unlikely that any such distance has ever been travelled by river before in any portion of the world.
