Flying Foxes. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Flying Foxes. SIB.-Daring the early patt of last month these pests again became very troublesome, doing much damage ; and although they were not so numerous as in years past, their daring was remarkable. Now, however, they seem to have given orchardists a respite ; bat it is only natural to suppose that, on the fruit becoming ripe, a recurrence of their depredations may be expected. Seeing that it is so, and that shooting within the precincts of the town is prohibited, I hope yon will permit me to make a suggestion which, I think, would prove effectual in deterring, if not destroying, them. Susan Island and the Common appear to be their principal haunts, from the fig-trees in which they hang in festoons. If some 10 or 15 lbs of blasting powder were placed under each of these, confined in, tay, oil cans let into the earth, ignited by fuse, sufficient effect would, I think, be prodnced to kill very many and disable others, which latter could then be destroyed. This, carried out simult...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

' Letters to the Editor. THE Editor does not hold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. Sin.-Canvassing for the Ulmarra Butter Company, questions are asked me which I have tried to the best of my ability to answer. But Eome seem to be of opinion that I am trying to force down their throats that which is not feasible or true. I would not for the life of me advise any one to enter into any project that would make them in a worse condition than they are at present. What I ¿ave done, and am trying to do, is to let them see the possibility of making themselves more pros- perous as regards money matters. 1 find the following questions asked : How will it affect the value of land by turning our holdings into dairy farms ?: Also, if, as you advocate, the laying down of the grasses you mention, will they become a nuisance like the nut grass, Paddy's lucerne, stinking roger, and other noxious weeds ; eventu- ally over-run the whole colony, and ruin our farmer? I have t...

Aquatic Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Aquatic Notes. THE final heat for the Hill trophy wa3 rowed off on Saturday and resulted in a splendid race, which must have been very gratifying to the donor. The result showed also that the handicappers had carried out their duties with great care and judge- ment. Noonan started a hot favorite, though all the other competitors had their supporters. The Lorna, which followed the race, had a goodly number on board, the gentler sex being well represented. The day was not a favorable one for rowers, there being a stiff breeze blowing from the south-east, making the water very lumpy, and the tide was running up strong the whole afternoon. All four faced the starter, Williams (22aec ), Casey (14sec), Noonan (12sec), and Paterson (scr.) A start was effected at about 4, all getting away well with their respective starts. The boats kept the above order to the point of the creek, where Paterson passed Noonan ; Casey had also closed the gap between himself and Williams. Noonan, to the surpri...

Maclean v. Stephenson Race. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Maclean v. Stephenson Race. THERE was a large attendance of the sporting pnblic on board the steamers which followed the race. The betting was even money, and a good deal of coin changed hands at that price. M'Lean weighed list. 101b., and Stephenson list. 71 b. Both looked remarkably well, and as regards their physical appearance there was nothing to choose between them. They dipped together and rowed almost parallel for abont 100 yards. Stephenson then went ahead, and passed TJhr's Point in lmin. 40sec. with a lead of half a length, M'Lean spurted and reduced the gap at the mile point to a quarter of a length. Stephenson's time to the mile was 6min. 9sec. M'Lean succeeded in passing the New Zealander off Bottle and Glass. At Putney M'Lean led by a clear length, the time to the Point being 9min. 40sec. At Gladesville the Bichmond River sculler led by four lengths, and passed the wharf in lGmin. 55sec. From here to the finish Stephenson tried his utmost to wear down his opponent, bu...

Latest Colonial Telegrams. TFßOM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] Sydney, Monday. WITH regard to the political deadlock in Queens- land, hoth sides met in conference on Saturday, when the discussion was of an amicable character, and it is expected that the business will be settled to-day. Lr. Jefferis, speaking at the Congregational Church yesterday, stated that pauperism in Aus- tralia in proportion to the population was not decreasing. The body of Hugh Murray, solicitor, was dis- covered in the river at Warrnambool. The New South Wales Commissioner sent to the Dunedin Exhibition, owing to some misunder- standing, has suspended operations and cabled to Sydney for instructions. The body of the half-caste Joe Flick, who killed a constable and black boy at Normanton, has been found riddled with bullets, supposed to have been received while sheltering himself in the hut.

A COMMISSION aaa Deep appointed at Canada to visit Australia, with a view to encourage the ship- ment of wool direct, for which purpose Canada has removed thir duty. The Prince BivVales wa3 received at Cairo with great enthusiasm. At the trial for the murder of Dr. Cronin, an ex-convict swore that the prisoner Conghlin tried to hire him to kill Cronin. Another convict has sworn that Burke confessed that he (Burke), Conghlin, and O'Sullivan decoyed Dr. Cronin into a cottage, where they clubbed him the moment he entered. His body was then thrown into a lake at Michigan ; but at a latter period was concealed in a sewer. An unfinished five-story building at Glasgow collapsed during a heavy gale, crushing an adjoin- ing carpet weaving shed, where there were employed 150 girls, 40 of whom were killed and 18 injured. Many others are missing, and numerous wonderful escapes are recorded. The dock charges have been advanced ...

Result of the Dock Labourers' Strike. The Small Shopkeeper. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Result of the Dock Labourers' Strike. The Small Shopkeeper. THE liefern- says :-The far-reaching results of the great strike can only be guessed at at present. They will bs far more serious than the easy-chair school of philanthropists imagine. In spite of the rast sums which have been contributed to the sup- port of the strikers, many of them have greatly increased the burthen of debt which was round their necks when they were ordered to turn out, and they will have terrible difficulty to get suffi- ciently in advance of the world to clear off the old score-especially with the winter seaeon close upon us, when the weather orders a general lock-out. A class entirely l03t sight of, but which deserves great sympathy, is the small shopkeeper who carries on business in the slums and gives credit to the poor earning precarious livelihoods. The dock labourer must now be heavily in debt to his tradesmen, and there is not not much chance of his paying him, so far as I can see. Hundreds and ...

MAJOR DANE ON AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

MAJOR BANE (W AUSTRALIA, MAJOR DANE'S lecture (by request) on Ms impres- sions of Australia gathered during his two and a half years sojourn in the colonies, was received with considerable applause. But it has not quite pleased some of the Metropolitan journalistic /ju id nuncs. It was not quite what they expected, evi- dently. Perhaps it did not prove such a quantum of flattery as was looked forward to in certain I quarters. That the ltcture did not receive journal- istic approval, is shown by the condensed report of it, and the critiques that have been published upon it. It is true, upon reading the published report, there follows a sense of disappointment in not hav- ing the full text. There being evidence in what ha3 been published of a frankand outspoken deliverance upon many subjects, the impression becomes fixed that some of the lecturer's points have been omitted from the reporter's notes. That is not an unusual course with Sydney journals when reporting matter, the substanc...

THE Clarence and Riclimond Examiner. _[ ESTABLISHED 1859.]_' TUESDAY MORNETS, KOTEMBEK 5TH, 1889. THE CLARENCE HARBOUR WORKS. Ix continuation of the evidence before the Public Works Committee on Tuesday last, Mr. JOHN SEE, M.L.A.. waa first called. His evidence was of a thoroughly practical character, as might have been expected from his intimate knowledge of the district and its requirement?, in combination with his well-known business capacity. Mr. SEE'S ! evidence was virtually the evidence of the people of this district, who know the capabilities of these and adjoining districts, and what is required to fully develope those capabilities in the public interest. The proposal to improve the entrance of the Clarence in combination with a complete system of railways, is undoubtedly a national proposal, and it is from that aspect the question Ehould certainly be viewed. The people who know anything of this great question will not limit the proposals as they are intended to affect thes...

The Scots Awake. Home Rule Demanded. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

The Scots Awake. Home Rule Demanded. THE secretary of the Scottish Home Knie Associa- tion, Mr. Charles Waddle, forwarded to Mr. Glad- stone, on September 13, an invitation to the second annual conference of the association at Dundee on the 25th, and enclosed a circular framed by the executive, in which it was set forth that "the leaden of the Liberal party are anxiously waiting for an unmistakable sign from the Scottish people of their wishes in regard to Home Rule for Scot- land. Those leaders very properly say that to force Home Rule on an unwilling people would be contrary to the principles of Ure Liberal party. The people of Scotland are most anxious for the restoration of legislative powers, and it is desirable to bring this fact home to the leaders, and also that the reason why Scotsmen are not more clam- ourous in regard to their o.vn claims, is from a generous impulse towards Ireland, and not indiffer- ence to their own national rights." The following is Mr. Gladstone's rep...

The Future of Australia. Oration by Major Dane. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

The Future of Australia. Oration toy Major Dane. A FEW weeks ago a number of prominent citizens ' of Sydney signed a requisition to Major Dane, asking him to prepare and deliver an oration on Australia. The Major assented, and on Wednesday the oration was delivered to a large and fashion- able audience in thc Wesleyan Centenary Hall. The chair was occupied by Sir Alfred Stephen, and Mr. Griffin, the American Consul, also occupied a seat on the platform. Major Dane, who was received with great applause, said that he occupied a unique position as a guest in this country, addressing them on the subject of their own land. He did not, however, intend to flatter them, but would speak right out about what he had seen, just as he would do if he were in London or in his own home, Boston. He would never forget, however, the hospitality which he had received in this country daring the past two years and a half. Anstralia had been the most intricate and delicate problem he had ever endea- voure...

Saturday's Cricket Matches. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 5 November 1889

Saturday's Cricket Matches.   WARWICK v. CARLTON.—These clubs met for the third time this season, and again the former were victorious, winning by 64 runs on the first innings. Smith, the "demon hitter," made his runs very quickly, and was responsible for three fives. North and Thorne played well, the former showing good defence, and demonstrated his ability to hit by placing Laing over the fence for 5. The Carltons responded poorly, and eight wickets fell for 18, when Till and Wolsely, by good play, took the score to 47, the former making a hit for 5 off Smith. Laing and North bowled best for their respective teams ; while Brown (2), North, and Thorne made good catches. Scores :—WARWICK : Thorne and North 19 each, Oakes 8, Smith 47, Stack 5, Davies and Trollope 1 each, M'Farlane, Hughes, Bright, and Heath (not out) nil ; sundries 11—total, 111.

The Guyra-South Grafton Survey. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 9 November 1889

The Guyra-South Grafton Survey. MB. E. F. RUDDER addressed the following letter to the (Hen limes Examiner. I wo aid beg leave to make a few remarks through the medium of your columns with regard to a letter of Mr. W. A. B. Greaves on the proposed Guyra-South Grafton Railway line. There was no need of Mr. Greaves alluding to me as the man of " perspicacity immense," as my letters to the Herald were written over my own name. From Mr. Greaves' statements, it is quite evident he knows nothing personally of what he is writing about. The facts I have stated haye been collected from personal. explorations, involving hard work and considerable danger consequent on having to explore a piece of conntry 20 miles by 15, covered with solid brush through which a horse could not be taken. This area contains some of the finest lands the conntry can boast of ; and the manner in which the spurs from the main range between the Macleay and the Clarence slope towards the North, offer facilities for asc...
