The Beacon Mine. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 10 May 1898

The Beacon Mine. ..-.., The Beacon mine at Uppor Buccais about to be shut down — strangled by red tapo. It appears that some years ago tho district in which tho mine is situated was proclaimed a forest reserve, and- the mine managor has beon denied the use of timber for fuel or for working the mine. As a result of representations mado to the De partmont, a certain area was set aside on which ,. t,-'. timber could bo cut, but this area was some dis tance away and tho intervening country was ot ?uch a character that tho timber could not bo conveyed over it. Tho Department ukasod against tho use of the timber in proximity to the mine, and as work cannot bo carried on without timber, no alternative romains but to close tho mine. Tho Government mako a great demon stration of their encouragement to mining and other industries, while in practice they place ? uiuir uuiuiue uupurtiiioucui regulations lu ino way of progress. It appears paradoxical that in a country such aa ours, where Governm...

Tho Lower House is oloctod for fivo years and tho constitution cannot bo amended in any osson tial by tho direct act of the people, but by tho English Parliament only, and there is also a property qualification.

The Price of Cane. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 10 May 1898

The Price of Oane. A 'whiter in tho E. E. Hekald says : — Premier Reid's reply to tho sugar deputation re the retention of JJ3 duty must be considered distinctly encouraging, and, taken with his at titude on tho Fedoration question, will raise him in tho estimation of ihoso who look on tho loss of the industry as a calamity. It is to be hoped that, in tho event of a fresh start, t.ht, farmers will form strong unions, to insist on fair terms boing conceded them by tho C.S.E. Co. Tho question of paying by tests will ba ono that requires caroful consideration. I have in my mind's oyo a crop of two-year-old cano cut in November, and yot the Company's officers val ued it at 3s -Id por ton. There must be soms minimum ratio fixed, Jor if such a rat3 as the above were paid, it would moan tho Insolvency Court for the unfortunate farmer.

The Premier gave thorn to undor stand that ho never had any intontion of bloU ing out tho industry, believing as ho did (hat it was capablo of standing without assistance in the way of an import duty. Still that fact does not docractono iota from the growors who are no inore c;ipablo of divining thought than other mortals.
