BERRIGAN. MONDAY, February 24. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896

BERR1GAN. (fhom oor own cosresfondent.) Monday. February 24. The agricultural show did not pass off without acoidenta. Mibb Louie Williams, youngest daughter of Mr. W. Williams, watchmaker, was driving in a sulky from the show ground to the townBhip when the vehicle collided with a waggonette, throwing the fair occupant out, and damaging the seat of the sulky. Miss Williams stuck to the reins in a plucky manner. The occupants of the waggonette soon adjusted matters, and the young lady proceeded ou her jiurney little the worse for her escapade. Another accident happened during the afternoon to M.eBBrB.;. Harry' Davis and W. J. Greggery, Jan., who were returning from the show in the former's buggy. It appears that the horses. which were very spirited, took fright and dashed across the drain on the side of a formation, where the horses got away, with the fore-carriage of the vehicle and galloped into tha township, barking on their way several telegraph poles.

THE BENEFITS OF FREETRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896

THE BENEFITS OF FREETRADE. The advantage of living in a freetrade colony is (says the Age) the constant theme of the disciples of the Cobdeoic craze, and farmers above all are counselled to adjure the so-called fallacies of protec tion and embrace the doctrine of equal exchange. How disastrous is the theory in actud practice, a* far ai city industries are concerned, has been pointedly demon strated by our special correspondent in Sydney, who has ehowa the evil effects of the recent tariff changes in New South Wales on trades which have hitherto employed a large number of hands. A letter which the Minister of Lands has received from a farmer in -New 'South- Wales shows the ruinous competition to which agriculturists have to submit in the operation of the same policy. Mr. BeBt's correspondent states that after an absence of J8 years in freetrade New South Wales he is most anxious to return and obtain land ia Victoria, but in conse quence of the stagnation of business across the Murray...

RABBITS IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896

RESITS IU NEW ZEALAND. Tho rabbit pest ia very bad again ia New Zealand t\m year ns well a=i in Vic* toria. It is not hkoly that anything wilj cWme of the Government's offer of a £1000 prize for a new scheme of Tabbit destruction. The Otago Witness very jjiractically remarks that the fault of the dieting Act lies in some farmers being; unable or unwilling to unite to work loyally under it, although very anxious tbat their neighbours should do so. Then there, is a great, deal of wasted effort through the work not being earned on simultaneously. It is urged in New Zealand — as on this side — that the Crown does, not look after its rabbits sufficiently, and, the Witness urges farmers who are Buffering from neighboring Crown, lands to. unite and petition the Minister for Lands or bring their grievance before Parliament through their, member. We ~ suspect that those who make the loudest cry about their neighbors are those who make , least effort to help themselves. The inppfctors. ought ...

AN AWKWARD ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896

AN AWKWARD ACCIDENT. Just as the guests of Mr. Barr'a Family . * Hotel, Coonamble, were sitting down to dinner on Tuesday a crash was hoard ia the yard, and the cok was seen coming double-quick with a steaming plum pud ding — evidently in an excited Btate (aays the local paper). Upon inv«3i.iffating:'the cause of the stir it was found that tho kitchen chimney had collapsed, burying beneath its fail many cooking utensils, besides breaking a camp oven aud several adjacent kitchen requisites. The dinner ? had only just been taken away from the fire, and afterwards the pudding, which, thanks to the cook's forethought and e '.ergy, was only rescued from a prema ture grave by the ' skin of its teeth,' or, rather, by tho bag it was wrapped up in. After so narrow an esc.ipe, it is needless to add tb.it the ' good things ' provided were doubly reliahed by the fortunate partakers.

COROWA. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896

COROWA. (tfBOM OTJB OWN OOBBEBPONDBNT.) On Friday evening last the Rev. Father Hickey, who has been for a year or more in charge of the Roman Catholic Church work in this district, was the recipient, at the Corowa Presbytery, of s magnificent gift from his parishioners, in the form of a handsome 60 guinea buggy. The district travelling of tbe reverend gentleman is necessarily extensive owing to the large and scattered area of minis tration, so a more appropriate token of regard could scarcely have been conceived. It must oe particularly gratifying to his reverence to know that he stands in such universal favor among those connected with hi9 own church, as the pre sentation indicates, while at the same time re taining the high respsct and regard of all classes of the community. The Rev. P. Hickey has a happy way of doing the best possible for his own flock without offending tbe sensitive euaceptibili ties of others, and his labors thoroughly deserve the appreciative endorsement that ...

Arguments were heard by Mr. Justice Hood in the Supreme Court, Melbourne, on the 20th inst., on an application to make absolute an order nisi to review a decision of the justices at Rutherglen in the case of Kilborn v. M'Clure, Valentine and Co. The point at issue was whether the justices had properly admitted evi dence as to the custom in the wine trade in. regard to cash discounts.

Mr. Foster, who appeared in support of the applica tion, Baid he understood the Government would pay the amount, but it first des'red to have the order of the court. The Chief Justice said that applicants were entitled to an order absolute in the first instance. Of course it was no business of the court if the Government, for rea sons best known to itself, saw fit to pay this gentleman's liabi'ity ; but costs would nofc have been im...

WAGRA. (FBOM OUB OWN 0OBBE8PONDEHT ) A petition is now being signed for presenta tion to the Minis :er for Lands, asking for a cemetery at Wagra. This is a matter which should have batn taken in hand long ago, the many painful experiences of the pa9t being good evidence of the necessity of such a pl«.ce, the nearest place of burial being some distance f rora here— about 20 miles. By the wayside, the river bank, and paddocks we are confronted with the resting place of some departed one. . Dr. Chalmers, Anglican Bishop of G.-ulburn, held confirmation service here on the 15th inst., when 13 candidates came up for confirmation.

DEDERANG. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 28 February 1896

DEDERANG. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The residents of this neighborhood were horror struck on Sunday, the 16th inst., at the news of the sudden death, by his own hand, of one of the oldest residents. A farmer named Joseph Lam bert was found not far from his house with his throat cut, quite dead. Only a very short time previously he was quietly at work in his cow yard milking, and nothing unusual had been noticed in his behaviour. A magisterial enquiry was held on the following day by Mr. Knagge, J.P., but nothing was elicited which would show adequate cause for the act. The unfortunate man was well known everywhere to be steady, hard working, and thoroughly respectable, and the general opinion was that no one was more unlikely to commit such a desperate act. The rain here since the 10th inst. hus been most welcome, Nearly two incho* have fallen and the grasa is growing as if by nngic,
