Australia, the Paradise for the Working Man. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 28 July 1888

Australia, the Paradise for the Working Man. Mr. Beiwaud Molloy, M.P., who lately visited Australia on a busiuess tour, was interviewed iu London by a representative of the Pall Mall Gazelle, and in the course of his remarks said : ' Australia is the para dise of the working man. The ordinary wages for working men are 8s. a day for eight hours' work, and bread, meat, vegetables, and clothes are us cheap as iu any part of Eng land. The only difference to the bad is in the matter of rent ; aud the difference is only felt in the neighbourhood of large towns. Here is a case which came uuder ray obser vation. An ordinary carpenter, by working two or three hours a day overtime, was earn ing £2 10s. a week ; and his son of 13 years was receiving wages at the rate of 6s. per day. No, overtime is not general ; as a rule, the workmen knock off to the. minute at the close of tlie.ir e.ight hours' labour.

Local and General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 28 July 1888

Local and General Nsxra. Faiimerb and Protection. — Last week the Minister for Mines said that what the farmers of this country want is not proteo tion, but a system of railway rates which will allow them to convey their produce to market, and he was in a position to tell them that tbtb was what they would get. Of course this is all very well for those agricul tural districts that are to be reached by railway, which are very few in comparison to those which have no railway communication, but he does not make any reference to the latter. How would reduced railway rates improve the positiou of thefaruier inthe North Coast district 1 Besides, the Government are not in a position to reduce tlis railway rates, as it is a well-known fact that at the present time our railways are not paying. We look upon this assertion on the part of Mr. Abigail as a Ministerial blind, by which he hopes to gain favor with the down-trodden but who is too wise to be led away by such remarks.

Horseshoes Should Go. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 28 July 1888

Horseshoes Should Go. I believr that, with very few exceptions, horses have no need of shoes, and the. evil accruing from constant shoeing will outweigh the gain from thoso exceptions many times. I have seen no necessity for the practice in any experience and have had no lame horses. Occasionally there is a time when a horse without shoes cannot go on the road, neither could he with shoes, unless fresh from the blacksmith's shop. If the modern horse needs steel bands to protect his feet from a rough, dry, or hard surface, the fact is due. to the practice of shoeing. Tlie horse's foot will adapt itself to any surface if given time, it will expand and grow flat on soft ground, or contract and get lorg on a hard surface. This proves that nature gave, him all tint shoes he needs. I have seen hundreds of horses made worthless, or nearly so, by shoe ing ; not one from not shoeing. Some will say that the blacksmith is to blame for not putting shoes on properly ; or the owner leaves them on...

' , Panaingin Victoria; ' MELBOCKNE has asserted iierself 'as the metropolis of the Southern Hemisphere.' These were the words of tlie Minister .©£ Lands in the Legislative Assembly of Victoria. Mr. Dow thinks there is a great future iu store for Melbourne, which stands in the same relation to Australia as London does to England, Paris- to France, New Yprk to America. But the try has been ' Pity the poor farmers ; they are suffering ; they are, in the northern districts, on the verge of insolvency ; the prosperity of the city has been gained at the expense, of the country.' This view was controverted by Mr. Pow, who claimed that the influx of population into Melbourne has not been, so mu;h from the country as from the adjacent colonies and abroad. 'The great back bone of agriculture,' said the Minister, 'is in a very satisfactory condition, with a per manent'and a prosperous yeomanry settled on the laud. Winegrowing has been found to be impracticable.' We cannot compete with India o...
