JORGEN JORGENSON. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 12 July 1884

JORGEN JORGENSON. BY A. N.             The process of fading away of many land-   marks of the past, which is fast going on, leads me to think that it would be well to place on record a few incidents which have come under my own knowledge of a man, whose name is unknown to many, or where once known, forgotten, like the baseless fabric of a dream—the name which heads this paper, and whose career I wish to trace through your columns, will, I trust, awaken in some breasts memories of the past, and carrying their ideas back, will, like the receding wave, lay bare the beach, and reveal the actions of one who has left his footprints on the sands of time. It is unfortunate for the narrative writer in young communities that he cannot deal in merely fictitious adventure; he cannot draw on his imagination either for the outline or the details of his story, in fact he has to supply romance with reality. ...

The Independent "ONWARD AND UPWARD." FOOTSCRAY, SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1884. The Budget. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 19 July 1884

,'ONWARD AND UPWARD.". FOOTSCRAY, SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1884. The Budget. THe Treasurer has made his annual statenient of the financial position of the colony for the past year, and laid the estimates of receipts and expenditure for the ensuing year, before the House. It is satisfactoryto observe:that there is a substantial increase in the revenue, of over a quarter of a million,; although the greater part of it is made up bIy increased receipts from the Railways, which was to he antictpated in consequence of the additional mileage opened. In short, the expenditure of last-- year was £5,786,9oo, and as we have gone in for railway accidents to a considerable extent, as well as having a large bill to pay for defences it is not to be wondered at, if the nla-C st pear amount to nearly_ .s and a half millions. This seems a most enormous outlay for our small population, and should allow of a hearv expenditure upon public works, which does not appear to be the case. It is observable that the ...

The Park Rotary Engine. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 19 July 1884

The Park Rotary Engine. W Vewe?e?lrautled the otbheday by an in "spctian tt Mr." Pairk's engineering works, South Melbourne, of a new developement in the way of. steam machinery that bids fair to revoluttoiise the present style of steam eigine, and as we saw it in full work, its success as a motor is, placed beyond all doubt as having solvelithat great objection to the usual form of engine, viz., that at the end of each stroke the piston must be brqpght to an absolute state of rest, when no power is available to aid the engmine, but on the contrary the impetus of the fly wheel'is required to carry the piston in the reverse stroke a certain distance before the steam can be again applied to assist the inotion. All this involves a large loss of power, as the steam can only act upon the piston during a small portion of the length of it stjpk.ek, and must be allowed to escape iefore its expansive power is ehapsted, else it would interfere with the return stroke. To obviate this loss of p...
