The Terrible Fire in Newfoundland. . A City in Ruins,-Thousands of People Homeless. A MOST disastrous fire broke out on Friday, . June 9th., at St. Jolin's, the capital of New foundland, and laid the greater part of the town in ruins. The damage is estimated : at £4,000,000 sterling, and thousands of per . sons have been rendered liomelcsB. The . disaster far exceeds in magnitude the terrible conflagration of 1846. The fire broke out in a stable in the eastern suburb of the town at . about 5 o'clock on Friday afternoon, and waa not subdued until about 9 o'clock on Saturday morning. The houses in the vicinity of the stable were all built of wood, and as there had been no rain for the paBt month every thing was as dry as tinder, while there was a great scarcity of water. In face of these circumstances, combined with a high wind, which fanned the flames, the firemen were powerless. Within a short time after the first outbreak fully a dozen houses were ablaze. The wind hurled flaming br...

The Labor Members at Charleville. THE Legislative Assembly has recently been deprived of the services of the honorable third party, who are drawing their salaries for attending the House, and spending them in junketting out weet.

Messrs. Carnegie and their Fortified Steel Works. A LIVELY IMAGE OF "TRIUMPHANT DEMOCRACY." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

Messrs. Carnegie and thefr Forti fied Steel Works. A LIVELY IMAGE OF " TRIUMPHANT DEMO CRACY," MB. ANDREW CARNEGIE, it appears, is not altogether as popular in America as so public spirited a man might reasonably expect to be. It is not alone bis rebellious workmen who say ill-natured things about him. The news papers, even of his own Pittsburgh, do not always lift up their voices in bis praise ; and since the trouble began at Homestead many of them have been saying exceedingly dis agreeable things about the millionaire iron master who has amassed a huge fortune by keeping an eye on the tariff. The Sew York World, for instance, devotes nearly eight col umns of its Sunday issue to taking up the cause of the Homestead men against their master. From tiiis lengthy article we gather that Mr. Carnegie has already brought the men at his other works to terms, to some ex tent by the importation of foreigners. Mr. Carnegie, the World says, is the foe of labor" As bis millions have increased f...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 6 September 1892

MISCELLANEOUS. TBOLY we have to go from bome to bear news of ourselves and our belongings. It appears now there is a mine of wealth in every gum tree or otber eucalyptus still being burnt off as an encumbrance or rnbbisb. In France the eucalyptus is declared to be the most valuable tree introduced into that country, and its cultivation is rapidly extending into tbe Southern departments. Its bark is in great demand by tbe French tanners. Its fibres are employed in the making of mats and baskets, cordage, packing and blotting paper, and filters. A resinous BubBtance is abstracted from it by distillation, which is known in commerce as vegetable naptha. An illuminating oil is obtained from it which affords a brilliant light, without smoke and without odour. Fragrant essences are dis tilled from its flowers. Its chemical prodacts enter largely into tbe French pharmacopoeia, and a decoction of the wood, after having been cut into fine flakes, is found to be super ior to any otber agency f...
