The N.S.W. Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

The N.S.W. Land Bill. IT is quite in accordance with the fitness of things (says the Weekly Despatch) that the relations of classes should be reversed at the antipodes. The Land Bill passed by Mr. Brunker curiously illus- trates this. The great fight over the Bill has raged on the question of compensation for improve- ments. But it is the representatives of the landed gentry who have been fighting for compensation, and the representatives of the people who have been opposing them. The'lordly squatter is the advocate of tenant-right. The people are his antagonists. And why? For the simplest of reasons. In New South Wales the landed gentle- man is the tenant, and the people are landlords. The aristocrat who "squats" on several square miles of land has never been allowed, as with us, to own it and keep it as a sheep run or a pleasure park. Any man who is prepared to come and till the soil can oust the squatter and his sheep. But the "game of the squatter is to prevent the soil gettiug ...

Terrible Tragedy in Brisbane. Infidelity and Murder. I BRISBANE, WEDNESDAY.-A sensational tragedy has jnst been reported here. A man named Jones found his wife in their bed-room with a man named Somers. He drew a revolver and shot his wife twice, then bent over and kissed her several times, when a sudden impulse came over him, and he seized an axe and strnck the unfortunate woman on the back of the head.

Public Meeting at Brushgrove. PUBSUAKT to advertisement signed by the Trustees, a public meeting was held in the Oddfellows' Hall, Brushgrove, on Thursday night, for the purpose of adopting measures to establish a central School of Arts at Brushgrove. Some thirty persons only «ere present, including, however, representatives from a wide area. The first resolution, committing the meeting to the execution of the project, was moved by the Rev. J. FINLAYSON in a very interest- ing and appropriate address, which was frequently applauded. He concluded by expressing a hope that the institution, when founded, would prove to be a model School of Arts, wisely and judiciously managed, and stored with high class literature. The resolution was seconded by Mr. J. BAIED, who had himself witnessed'the beneficial results of such institutions in other parts. The Bev. R. JOHNSTON supported the resolut'on, dwelling upon the popular fallacy that education finishes with school life; pointing out the need...

Chatsworth. OCTOBER 23. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Chatsworth. OCTOBER 23. Police Protection.-The attention of the police and public should be drawn to the disgrace- ful proceedings that have taken place here recently, and it is a' shame that Chatsworth should be the only town in the district without police protection. Singe the resident policeman has been withdrawn, this place seems to be the resort of those who wish to display rowdy tactics or enjoy a quiet drunk, A few weeks ago an inebriate stalked about the Tillage with the only dress adornment of à shirt and boots. Last week there was a three-day fight, commencing one evening at 1U o'clock. At mid- night the row was so great that some were obliged to leave their beds to ascertain the cause. Five kanakas, and as many white men, were engaged in the melëe, which continued all night and next day, resulting in one of the fair combatants having to go to the hospital, while one of the kanakas was seriously injured in the fray. A few days ago an inebriate patrolled the town all one da...

Lawrence. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Lawrence. I THUBBDAY. Painful Accident-An unfortunate accident . happened to an old man named Giles Essex, in the employ of Messrs. M'Farlane Brothers, butchers. The old fellow, who is always in charge of the slaughter house, situate some 2 miles out of town, while- looking for something on the loft of the building this morning, must have slipped and fell a distance of some 12 feet, and with the fall pull- ing several heavy pieces of timber upon himself. Not a soul was near to render assistance, but providentially Mr. H. Eggins happened to be pass- ing by with his timber jinkers soon after the accident- happened, and seeing Giles lying upon the ground, went to see what was wrong. The unfortunate fellow was senseless, cut, and bruised all over the body. He was immediately brought in to Dr. Jurs who attended him, and this after- noon Mr. B. M'Farlane has taken him to the Maclean Hospital for treatment. Consequently I presume he has met with something more serious than being cnt and br...

The Clarence Harbour Works. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

The Clarence Harbour Works. SYDNEY, FRIDAY.-Daring the week professional evidence has been taken by the Public Works Sec- tional Committee, touching the Works at Yamba. The TTNDER-SECBETAEY Btated that - nearly £222,000 had been voted for these works, of which i about £182,000 had been expended. The present ! contract was for continuation of the works on the sooth Bide, bat in about two months all the works would cease, owing to tie exhaustion of the quarry. Nothing would be done until Parliamentary sanc- tion was obtained. For carrying out further works it would be necessary to open up a new quarry. Mr. Moriarty's estimate in 1SC0 was £117,387. Sir John Coode's estimate of £580,900 is for cost of breakwater only, the blasting of rocks was extra. Mr. DARLEY gave evidence favorable to Coode's scheme, which would contine the scour to one channel, and give the depth of 18 feet. The training wall and breakwater could be carried on simultaneously much more economically than sep- arately....

Hooker Incandescent Gaslight. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Hooker Incandescent Gaslight. THE first Hooker's Patent Incandescent intro- duced to the Clarence was lighted at Mr. C. Sanders' establishment, Queen-street, on Wednesday even- ing. The principal of the firm came up from Sydney and arrayed the apparatus, which, as a light producer, cannot be excelled, and looked at from au economic point of view, the Hooker should speedily become common. The 10 burners, each equal to 20 candle power, that are lighted at Mr. Sander's premises will, we are informed, cost but ld per hour, an immense saving on any other system of lighting. . Of course, the first cost of the machine is greater than any common lighting appliance, bnt business and other places requiring numerous lights can be very cheaply supplied by the Incandescent. The gas is generated by draw- ing air over colonial gasoline placed in a tank, the strength being reduced by a second mixture, by i which time the gas consists of IS parts air to one of oil gas. From the tank it is conveyed t...

The Rev. Joseph Barnier. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

The Rev. Joseph Barnier. PROBATE of the will of the Rev. JOSEPH BARNIER, late minister for St. Barnabas, was obtained the other day. His whole estate it appears is worth only £1100. This indicates that he mast have been a liberal giver during his life time, and such, indeed, he waa. A great part of his salary was expended in relieving distress, and the consequence is that his wife and children will have to toil hatd to get a livings This is not as it should be. A man's duty is to care for the members of his own household, and even clergymen should so deal with their incomes as to provide a sufficiency for their widows in the event of their own death. The late Canon O'REILLY was a man after the stamp of the Rev. Joseph Barnier. When he died he left almost nothing for the support of his widow, and their children not then being in a way to do for them- selves, she had to open a school to obtain the wherewithal to fill the cupboard. It may be hoped, however, that the congregation to whi...

The North Shore Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

The North Shore Bridge. THAT blessed North Shore bridge is on the tapis again. Mr. BRUCE SMITH ha3 expressed his inten- tion of going through the papers with the view of having the project submitted to Parliament. What the Minister for Works takes in hand he generally manages to accomplish, and therefore it may be assumed that the bridge will really be brought out of the region of romance into that of reality. Bnt if the affair had been left to Sir HENRY. PARKES it would never have been taken beyond the promising stage. Although I am a Sydney man, I mnst say 1 cannot see any immediate necessity for the con- struction of this bridge, for there is a capital ferry service between St. Leonards and the city, and it is capable of managing the prospective traffic for many years to come. The fare for each passenger is only one penny, whilst the accommodation on steamers is all that could be reasonably desired. Nor are the facilities for conveying horses, carriages, &c, from one side...

The Drink Question. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

The Drink Question. A SEW Temperance orator has appeared ia Sydney. His name is Mr. CRABB, and he holds his meetings in the Wesleyan Centenary Hall in York-street, j He had a great crowd on Sunday night to hear I him. and the audience lase night was nearly as I large. Both yesterday and on Sunday he tried to show that the Bible condemned the use of alcohol in any form as a beverage, but that only proves that he tortures that good old Book. Fermented wine was the common drink of the people for whom the Scriptures were originally written, and experience proves that a better drink has never been discovered. In his last book MAX O'RELL has stated that dyspepsia is almost unknown in I France, and he attributes the exemption in great part to the fact that the people of every degree use wine at their meals. What a pity it is that Temperance orators do not discuss the Drink Ques- tion in a rational manner. Mr. Crabb advocates the total prohibition of the drink traffic. He is in favour of pa...

Egeson's Weather Predictions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 26 October 1889

Egeson's Weather Predictions. m.a. XJUKSUJN, me meteorologist, refases to be silenced. Since the publication of the Ministerial ukase against him, he has written to the papers in defence of his prediction that so startled Mr. CAB BTJTHEBS. He may be assured that so long as he confínes his communications to the papers to scientific subjects, the public will not permit any- body to muzzle him. lt is not incumbent on any- body to believe his predictions, and no one will believe him if they do not appear reasonable, that is, if they are not founded on rational data. But if they are made from a basis of fact, credence should be given thereto. At any rate, no squatter who believed his predictions and acted in accord- ance with his belief could suffer harm, for the effect of his belief, would be to make him provide against a long drought, and surely that would not be an unwise thing to do. If after every good season in the past the squatters had assumed that a dry time would follow, and ma...
