Leave it All to Me. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
? '-'Leave ??It'^All !to.-'':JWe. A 8UGOE8TIVE paragraph in a late issue of the 'Herald explains,, why the Premier's intended visit to Molohg may not be long,, nriil whv invitations to other nlaces must be declined right and left. 'Nearly the whole of the work of preparing the . bill 3 to be introduced uext session will fall upon him.' Poor Sir Henry ! and poor bills ! T}ie Premier's idea, of, a Cabinet is an improvement even on Spurgeon's idea of a committee — three members only, and two of them always on sick leave ! Sir Henry honors the Constitution, apd keeps up appearances', by - a full Cabinet ! but. in effeot he says, ' Leave it all to me,' and, to all appearances, his. colleagues are con tent. It will be remembered that when Sir Henry's choice of colleagues was an^; nounced the riddle; was variously ;read; Some people wickedly said that certain men had . had greatness thrust upon them in default of acceptance of office by stronger men. Others said* peihaps 'but of greater wi...
District Coal. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
District Coal. A sit all sample of the coal being obtained at .the Coldstream was submitted by us SC. Examiner) for examination by Mr. T. ». Hamilton Foster, science teacher of the Board of Technical Education here, and Mr. FoBter repovte as follows: — I regret to be compelled to give an opinion that may prove somewhat disap pointing to the discoverers of coal at Cola stream, and at the same time to differ from so undoubted an authority as the late Min ister for Mines, but after carefully testing the specimen of Coldstream coal submitted to me by you, I am obliged reluctantly to state that it is a species of anthracite or glance coal, and not bituminous. It is therefore useless for gas making, and of little value fer household purposes; but it would make excellent steam coal, , if used in properly constructed furnaces, and is the best coal obtainable for smelting, being almost pure carbon aud very free from sulphur. At the same time, though large beds of pure anthracite exist, notab...

The Largest Farm in the World. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
The Iiargeftt Farm In the World. In the extreme south-west corner of Louisiana lies the largest producing farm hfthe world. It runs 100 miles north and south, and miles ea«t aud west, and is owned : and operated by a syndicate of northern capitalists. Their general man ager; J. B. Watkins; gives an interesting account of this gigantic plantation, which throws the great Dalrymple farm in Dakota into the shade completely. ' The 1,500,000 acres of our tract.' Mr. Watkins said, ' was purchased in 1883 from the State of Louisiana and from the United States Government. At that time it was a vast grazing -land for the cattle of the few dealers in the neighbourhood. When I took possession I found over 30,000 head of 'half- wild horses and cattle. My work was .to divide the immense tract into convenient pastures,' establishing stations or ranches every' 12 miles. The fencing alone cost in ' 'the neighbourhood of £10,000. The land I ?found to be best adapted to rice, sugar, ;eorti; and - cott...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE RICHMOND RIVER HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 15 July 1887
TO THE EDITOR OF THE RICHMOND BIVER imALD. Sir,— Being a visitor at.the picnio on July 9th, 1887, in connection -with the Good Templars' Lodge, of Coraki, I soon became avare that two prices (kindly donated by some local townspeople) were to be run for —one for the single ladies and one for the' single men. The prizes being wrapped in paper the contents were unknown to the competitors. The conditions of the gentle men s pnze was that it had to be opened at the harmony meeting held in the School of Arts. Judge my surprise when the winner brought forth a most useful article in connection with a toilet set. Was suoh a prize a fit one to be opened before all ages and all sexes in a public hall f 'No,' it clearly shows, the want of refinement in the giver, end I sincerely hope that if not the first it will be tbe last time they will ever offer a prize of such a kind to ha opened in a piolic place, as the least I can say is that it was not modest. A NON TEMPLAR.
