Lawrence. FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Lawrence. FRIDAY. Lawrence School Board.-Judging from the unusual amount of interest the members of the Lawrence District School Board have recently been taking in connection with the duties pertaining to their offices, it is not unnatural to suppose, that beneficial results arising from their stewardship, may soon become apparent. Four gentlemen, at i present, constitute the Board, and I am informed that the Minister for Education has been officially I advised to increase the number to .teven, so that it may ba more general and representative of the people's interests, and the idea is a commendable one. The Lawrence Public school, upon the occa- sion of Mr. Lobban's (the District Inspector) visit a few weeks ago, was visited by the following representatives, Messrs. P. Drummond (chairman), A. Henderson, J. H. Whalan, and S. Bathgate, and so satisfactory was everything found in connection with the school and the working thereof, that the erection of an additional wing to the buildin...

Brushgrove. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Brushgrove. THURSDAY. Strange.-A singular phenomenon appears every night during the last few weeks down the South Arm in the shape of alargo light, at times showing very brilliantly, and gradually decreasing until invisible. At first .sight it resembles a person carrying a kerosene lamp. On first appearance a very dim light is discernible, but it increases rapidly to a most brilliant light, and shoots np into the air a distance of a hundred feet, and in a few moments will travel a distance of half a mile. To those who do not believe such things it is really worth their while to pay a visit to the spot where this light is seen so frequently, near Mr. John Wallwork's residence, South Arm.-[Such pheno- mena occasionally occur, especially in the locality of low or swampy land, at dry periods, believed to be caused by certain substances at these times in the air, causiDg phosporescence.-ED.] The Weather.-Very light showers fell here on Tuesday and Wednesday, but productive of little bene...

Ulmarra. I _ .. _ FRIDAY. Butter Factory.-The Committee decided to employ a paid canvasser to go round and work up the movement to the necessary number of shares, the applications being still short of the capital required. Racecourse Road. - This matter has, I understand, been definitely settled to the satisfac- tion of all parties, and a new road has been cleared inside the old one where the running track is, which has been, moreover, blocked up. Mail Service.-On more than one occasion I advocated a double mail service np and down the river, and am glad to learn that the alteration has been made. It is worthy of notice that a weather gauge is to be fixed at the Po3t Office, Law- rence. We have none here ; and several other matters which have occurred from time to time, point to the advantages of a Progress Association. The matter is well worth the attention of our citizens. Business.-The town, whether prosperous or not, certainly appears so :<ind a stranger coming to us ...

Tyndale. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Tyndale. THTJBSDAY. PROGRESS ASSOCIATION.-It must be apparent to all that great benefits will eventually be the reward from some organisation where the interests of the public can be freely discussed, and through which organisation (be it called Progress Association, District Improvement Board, or any other name) the wants and legitimate rights of the people could be urged and demanded of the Government. Such organisation would also be of great assistance to the Member, as well as being a check upon local offices, who are referred to for report on public matters, and who very often give indifferent reports. I am of the opinion that if some organi- sation were in existence that those officers, who very often give a shuffling report to gratify their own ends in view, sometimes would be a little more careful. In my correspondence some time back I advocated this course, a meeting was con- vened for the same purpose. But still we have not made a move in that direction. A movement is now ...

Harwood Island. THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Harwood Island. I THURSDAY. Public Meeting.-A public meeting was held on Monday evening in the Assembly rooms, for the purpose of urging upon the Minister for Works the necessity of having the road between Harwood and Chatsworth formed and opened up immediately. Mr. SEE, Mayor of Maclean, occupied the chair, and strongly urged upon the residents the necessity of forming a Progress Association, and holding public meetings, as it is only through continual agitation that we may expect to receive anything like our just claims. Taking into consideration the amount of revenue raised ¡it Harwood, he (the Chairman) was quite satisfied that Harwood was sadly neglected by Governments. Mr. A. C. BARBY moved, " That this meeting desires ti call the Minister for Works' attention to the great delay in forming and opening the new through road from Harwood to Chatsworth. The bridge has been finished some months, and the road on Harwood side partly formed ; but there the matter ends. Nothing whateve...

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, FRIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, FBIDAY. Pinafore Company.-The reproduction of the favourite opera " Pinafore," at Maclean, last night proved an unqualified success in every way, the demand for reserved seats being so great that the major portion of the hall was taken up several days before the entertainment was to take place, and by c msequence the place set apart for chance visitors wa3 rather limited. It is needless to say that the house was crowded ; but, thanks to the j efforts of those in charge of the doors, there was a total absence of anything approaching larrikinism. The arrangements for the accommodation of per- formers and audience were found to be almost per- fect, and it is pleasing to know that the Grafton friends-who so kindly gave their services-were quite satisfied with their reception. The Institu- tion, which will benefit by the entertainment to the extent of about £20, is indebted to Messrs. Lamy, Nicholls, Hyde and Wilkinson for the way in which the affair was worked n...

WHERE IS THE FREEDOM? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

WHERE IS THE I REED OM? THE PliejiiER told a deputation at Tamworth .. That the Government of which he was a member firmly believed that no taxes should bo imposed except to meet the necessary expenditure of the State, and that the people should be left free to work out their own enterprises by their own energios." Very good words, no doubt. The PHE JIIEK is an adept at that sort of thing ; but then does tile actions of the Government bear out the announcement. As to the first ; what is necessary expenditure? Has the Government made the slightest effort to reduce that necessary expendi- ture to a minimum compatible with efficiency? Upon the plea of necessity, in the absence of retrenchment, what may not be wrong from the people in the way of taxation for "necessary expenditure." The PREMIER and some members of his Government may yet come to the conclusion if expenditure goes on increasing as it does-that the imposition of an ad valorem duty of 10 or 20 per cent, upon many articles w...

European Letter. LONDON, SEPT. 20. THE New South Wales Government having deter- mined to establish metallurgical works on a scale sufficiently large for determining, in bulk, the best methods of treating ores produced in the colony, Sir Saul Samuel is now advertising for a Superin- tendent, to erect, control, and direct the works. He must possess the highest qualifications and wMest experience, for it will be his duty to intro- duce the best methods of treating ores (especially auriferous and argentiferous), with a view to extracting therefrom the metals and other sub- stances possessing an economic value. He will also have to impart full instruction in the various methods of treatment, and to afford every facility to smelters and miners for acquiring a practical knowledge of the processes employed.

Australia a Rising Nation. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Australia a Rising Nation. AT a monster farewell meeting-to (he Irish Envoys, Mr. John Dillon said at the conclusion of a lengthy speech that he fancied he saw in Australia the infancy or boyhood of a rising nation, which, in the not far remote future, would be the undis- puted mistress of these southern seas. That Ans I tralia might be great and powerful, and that the 1 glory of her manhood might excel the mighty promise of her youth, was his most earnest prayer. (Cheers.) And when Australia had taken urjon herself all tho "-;";i-"_j _r" uerseii an ene privileges and responsibilities of nationhood, he hoped and trusted that her greatest and highest ambition would be laid, not in conquest and in the oppression of her weaker neighbour?, not in a widely extended dominion, but that her ambition would be in a far nobler and higher task in maintaining inviolate, and in handing down to long succeeding generations, that high standard of nobility or labor, which, in hi-i judgement, was the ...

Germany in South Africa. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Germany in South Africa. IT is repotted in London that the German Colonis- ing Company of Pondoland has been broken np, and its goods and implements sold at a sacrifice. Pondo, or as it is marked on all but the most recent maps Amaponda Land, is situated sooth of Natal. The inhabitants have been generally friendly with the British, but during the South African troubles, when war was averted solely through the generosity and forbearance of the Colonial authorities, the Aborigines Protection Society, according to Miss Shaw, writing in the September number of the Fortnightly J'evicir. did its best at a critical moment of the negotiations to force Downing-street into an unwise interference on the ground that the colonists were contem- plating a barbarous war against the Pondos, and that it was the duty of the Imperial Government to prevent the adoption of so iniquitous and short- sighted a policy. Latterly the GermanB, in their so-called desire for colonisation, have been getting up the...

Mr. T. Bawden nominated Returning Officer for Grafton electorate. A NEW factor ia entering the paper-makers' market. It has been proved that the banana plant contains a greater quantity of pure fibres than any other of the numerous vegetable products used for the manufacture of paper. During the first twelve months of its vegetation the plant produces but a single bunch of fruit, after which it dies ; but from ita roots four to ten young planta spring np. The adaptation of the plant to com- * . mercial purposes will, it is anticipated, revolutionise the textile material market, and largely affect tho industry. The plant is easy of cultivation, and its qnalities have long since been recognised by the wandering tribes in Central America aa yielding many useful adjuncts to every-day domestic requirement?.

Mr. D. Christie Murray on the Future of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 2 November 1889

Mr. D. Christie Murray on the Future of Australia. TUE banquet to the Premier at Tenterfield did not end until near midnight. Among tho speeches made was one by Mr. Christie Murray, in responso, to tho toast of " Tho Press," whioh, owing to the* world-wide colobrity of that gentleman, will be read with considerable interest. Mr. Christie Murray said that he was particularly grateful to his God for having afforded him an opportunity of being present on an occnsion so significant. Sir Honry Parkos, admittedly the wisest, the most experienced and statesmanlike of the guides of public opinion in Australia, had that night sounded with no uncertain voice the first notes of an orchestral outburst which would vibrate throughout the whole of the Australian colonies. He (Mr. Christie Murray) had sat there and had seen history actually in the process of manufacture. What the Premier of New South Wales had said that night had set a ball rolling, the future size and weight of which even tho spea...
