Police Protection. TO THE EDITOR OF THE PORT MACQUARIE NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 11 August 1888

Police Protection The Editor of the part Macquarie News Sir,— In your paper of the 4-th instant I notice where a deputation waited upon Inspector Mears re police protection for the Hastings. I do not wish to dictate to any one, but to give my opinion, viz., that Wauchope is not the most central place for an extra policemen. I consider that the Ellenborough is. If a thief stole horses or cattle from the Macleayand wished to go to Maitlauil with them   he would not go by Waucliope, but would come across Kindee Mountain, through Cathaback, up the Ellenborough, &c., and away unperceived by any one. If coming from the south they would take partly the same route. In conclusion I wish to say if Constable McDiarmid is not nearly good enough for a town policeman we will accept him if stationed amongst us, and not grumble. Hoping you will publish the above,— I remain, JOHN WALLIS.   Ellenborough, August 7.

The Coal Miners' Strike. During the last week groat excitement has prevailed in this and the other colonies, on account of the miners in the Newcastle district havit'ig signified their intention to strike, owing to an application on the part of the miners to have their wages risen being refused by the proprietors of the mines.

I will admit that when Mr. Kuthven told us the cost incurred I, with others, thought it rather hard, considering we did not make use of any portion of the luncheon, which was provided no' doubt, but on account of the wet weather was not required. Anyhow the debt was undoubtedly jiiht, aud I do not think it required a Solomon to decide whether it would have to be paid, consequently I handed over my share to Mr. Martin, the Secre tary, the amount being about twelve shillings each, and I was of opinion that the other members had done tho same, and a...
