Letters to the Editor. The Lawrene Improvement Board. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 22 October 1889

Letters to the Editor. 1 Tax Editot does not hold himself responsible for opinion! .ipreMed by correspondents. The Lawrene ImprovementBoard. . Silk-According to the Argus correspondence from Lawrence the members of the Improvement Board are not sufficiently careful of their honour. - Sir, the writer in question was one of the rejected, when the'officera of the Board were chosen, and it ia well known that heis smarting under his defeat. He is one of those who Cannot take his gruel and be done with it ; but like Tam-o'-Shanter's wife, he " nurses his wrath to keep it warm," and it is very galling to his superabundant vanity that the Board is getting along first-class without his self-important aid or interference. Seeing that he has been quietly snuffed out, he is now supplying warped and venomous articles to the Argux in hopes of creating strife and itagnation where peace and progress at present reigns. But he has no influence, except with a few of his own class, and his power to mak...

" Problems that Perplex Us." [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 22 October 1889

" Problems that Perplex Us." THE Rev. Dr. Jefferis delivered the first of a series of lectures at the Pitt-street Congregational Church last week, entitled " Problems that Perplex us," looked at in the light of the gospel. We live for the most part in a fool's paradise, said the lecturer, having certain ideas of what life is among, our fellows, evoked from our limited consciousness. The actual condition of things in a multitude of lives, the pining want, the hopeless poverty, the embecility, the disease, the dull brooding anguish, the unutterable impurities, brutalities and degra- dations of vice, powers wasted, hearts breaking, souls plunged in a gulf of present perdition-of all this we are almost unconscious. But there comes a day when some tale of terrible impost is told ns, or when millions are moved at and by sudden sympathy concerning some great grievous wrong, and then the covering crust is broken, and we look down into dark abysses, foul with unutterable corruption, or into ...

Unoccupied Lands in the Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 22 October 1889

Unoccupied Lands in the Colonies. THE question of the unoccupied lands of Western Australia has jost been treated in an exhaustive and logical manner in the Times by Mr. Macfie, of Dreghorn Castle. That gentleman, who has actively interested himself in the settlement of colonial lands ever since his first entry into Parliament in 1868, has many claims to speak authoritatively upon this important question. Speaking of emigration from the Old Country, Mr. Macfie holds that the system in the past has been conducted with too little method, and without clearly-defined grand objecte in view. "Hitherto, or at any rate for many ? decades, so far as the State and the Colonial Government has directed it, or rather permitted it, the holdings offered have been too small. Facilities ought to be simultaneously presented for the settling, under long leases, of men with capital, upon large areas requiring many hired labourers. We are apt to forget that few of the latter class have, at the age when ...

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 22 October 1889

Echoes and Opinions. SOME more than ordinary attention is being directed just now to the too common and repre- hensible practice oí obstrncting roads. Com- plaints are irequentty made to us upon this point. Not long since it was the practice, and we believe it is so still, on some parts of the Richmond for the farmers to plough up and cultivate not only reserved roads through their farms, but also to fence off and use as paddocks-pasture" or cultiva- tion-dividing roads. This latter encroachment may frequently be met with even in the vicinity of Grafton. In our sister district, however, we learn that obstructions of this kind are innumerable, and that recently through the cultivation of a reserved road along the bank of a creek, a cart was precipitated into the water from a height of some 15 feet, and its occupants had a narrow escape from drowning. When a man conditionally pur- chases land or purchases a freehold, he does so with certain rights of access. Others do the same. Hence ...

University Education in Ireland. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 22 October 1889

University Education in Ireland. THE sitting of the House of Commons, on August 28, bestowed a sudden importance on a waning session. Mr. Sexton took the opportunity offered by the Appropriation Bill to make complaint on behalf of the teachers of primary schools in Ireland, and also in the interest of Catholic higher educa- tion. What Mr. Sexton practically suggested was that the State should now give np the attempt at unsectarian educational endowment, and do some- thing for the Catholic seats of education which would recognise their tests and denominational character generally ; and what Mr, Balfour pro- mised was practically legislation to that effect, though he " could not," of course, " pledge himself as to when the Bill would be brought in." The following are the more important passages in Mr. Balfour's speech, in which he frankly expressed the concurrence of the Government in Irish ideas on this subject :-"In his opinion something ought to be done to give a higher University ...

FRAUDS ON DIXSON'S CONQUEROR TOBACCO. Some unprincipled retailers of Tobacco are placing the Conqueror tin-tags upon Tobacco, and disposing pf same as the genuine article.

Armidale. FRIDAY.                 THE ASSIZES.-The Circuit Court opened on Tues-   day, and before the ordinary business was com- menced, the local magistrates presented the Chief Justice with an address, congratulating him on his appointment, and expressing pleasure at his visiting Armidale. His Honor, in reply, congratu- lated the residents on the small amount of crime, and attributed the decrease of crime in the colony to the spread of education. The following cases were disposed of-James Bloomfield, horse stealing, 18 months ; Ah See, stealing a watch;-12 months ; George Clutterbuck, assault with intent to rob, 7 years penal servitude ; John McShane, similar offence, 4 years ; James Smith, breaking and entering, 2 years ; Charles Henry Moore and John McDonald, horse-stealing, remanded to next Court, jury not being able to agree ; Arthur Orch- ard, cattle-stealing,...

Maclean Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Maclean Municipal Council. THE Tegular meeting was held on Tuesday evening last, when all the Aldermen were present. PUBLIC BATHS.-Alderman M'MAHON submitted a report from the committee appointed to select a site for the proposed new public baths, setting forth, briefly, that of the three situations at all suitable, the one at the foot of Cameron-street was the best ; in fact, it was the only one which would answer the purpose, and it had natural advantages in subterranean formation, which the rest lacked. He moved the adoption of the report, which was seconded by Alderman CUMMINS. Alderman KYLE was strongly in favour of the movement, but from information he had received lately he was inclined to think that it would be unwise at the present juncture to fix definitely apon the site. He had been told that conorete baths were far superior to any others, and could be erected at a very low figure. If this was the case, it would be well to have the matter discussed before the Council boun...

The Protectionist Party. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

! The Protectionist Party. IT ia remarkable that the Protectionist leaders aré not taking advantage of the recess to hold meet- ings throughout the country. The other day a. meeting of the members oí Ú& National Club was convened for the purpose of considering this important question, but though there was a pretty good attendance and plenty of discussion, no practical result was arrived at. Strong as the cause is, it can hardly be expected to triumph unless the leaders hold demonstrations in the Free trade centres. It was only by the display of con- stant activity that Protection was won in the United States and Victoria. And similar zeal should be shown in New South Wales. Mr. DIBBS, I am sure, is not to blame, for he is willing to per- form a reasonable amount of campaigning when- ever required. The noblest Roman of them all is G. R. Dibbs, and that the whole Protectionist party will, unless I am greatly mistaken, yet acknowledge. He has undaunted courage, untir- ing energ...

The Minister for Instruction and the Tariff Question. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

The Minister for Instruction and the Tariff Question. SPEAKING at Barwood yesterday, Mr. CARRUTHERS said he knew for a fact that one-third of the mem- bers of the Protectionist party in the House desired the imposition of an ad valorem duty of 10 per cent, on imported commodities, and that for the present they did not wish the protective policy to be extended any further. This is one of the many political fiotions that the Minister for Instruction is in the habit of uttering. What the remark prob- ably means is, that Mr. Carruthers and some of the members who sit on the same side of the House as himself, would not object to ad valorem duties up to 10 per cent. A year or two ago he actually submitted a motion to the Assembly for levying such duties on jewellery, &c. I have never believed that he is a Free-trader at heart ; but I have always believed that he is an opportunist. At the general election before last he did not speak with a certain sound on the Tariff question, and...

Political and Social Letter. Impertinent and Unreasonable. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Political and Social Letter. [ BY S. C. Impertinent and Unreasonable AT public meetings lately several of the members of the Government have spoken at some length on the subject of Australian Federation, and it would seem that this ia the Boheme which Sir HENRI PARKES had in his mind when he informed the representatives at the Municipal Conference, held a few weeks ago, that there was a certain project which he hoped to accomplish before he died, the nature of which he could not then disclose. But the ministers might eave the breath which they are expending in discussing this subject, for Federation, aa everybody can see, ia impracticable without a uniform Tariff, but it is not in the least degree probable that Victoria, Queensland and South Aus- tralia will return to Free-trade to secure Federation with New South Wales, and of course Sir Henry Parkes and his colleagues cannot be expected tc sanction this colony going over to Protection in order to promote the desired object. The Da...

Abseilt Jurors. - The only juror whose absence was not satisfactorily accounted for at the Circuit Court was fined GOs ; and we notice that a similar penalty was enforced by the Chief Justice at the Armidale Circuit. His Honor said if it were represented to him before the Court adjourned that there was sufficient excuse for the absence of the juror, he would remit the fine, and just prior to the adjournment he again asked if any person could give the reason of the person's absence. No satis- factory cause was adduced, and his Honor said that the fine could only be remitted by the person mak- ing an affidavit that it was impossible for him t» attend. IMPORTANT NOTICE.-H.

Echoes and Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Echoes and Opinions. IT ia reported that the Sectional Committee of the Public Works Committee are coming overland from Sydney to Tenterfield, and thence by coach to Casino, and so on to Byron Bay. Another report is that Messrs. EWING and NICOLL will shortly visit the Richmond electorate, and that the Sectional Committee will probably accompany them. This is rather a queer way of putting it. Is it not rather that Messrs. Ewing and Nicoll are not seeking to accompany the Sectional Committee. Either way, the taste of the members is very questionable, and to permit the accompanying either way is scarcely wise on the part of the Sectional Com- mittee. So far as the members for the electorate are concerned, it is well they should be in their electorate to receive the Committee, and to give such assistance in submitting evidence as may be necessary ; but nothing closer should be allowed, otherwise a suspicion of want of impartiality on the one side, and an attempt at undne influence on th...
