SHELLHARBOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 24 September 1887
SHILLIARBOU1 , (r?oM oun OaiaRc?Ir'soIN'eres ) IT is not with unmixed feelings that the people of Shellharbour learn that £1000 is to be spent by the Government in repairing the road from Kiama to the Minnamiurra. Our sympathy with the Kiama Oouncil prompts us to exclaim hurrah for the libe rality of a benevolent Governmeont in takinlg this matter up. Our feelings are modilied considerably, however, when we reflect that the railway trallio cut up our section of the road almost as much as that on the'other side of the river, that our aldormen being unfottered with a heavy debt, have, like men, who are alive to the welfare of the travel ling public, expended a considerable amount of money upon this road, from the bridge, northwards, and have made it one of the. best roads on the south coast. Oansequontly we are unable to go. hal in hand to the, Minister for Works and ask him for a grant to repair it, as the work is already done. An experience such as this'would seem to point to a now ...

PRISON LIFE IN SIBERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 28 September 1887
PRISON LIFE IN SIBERIA. ["SerNT to Siberia" is a phlrase to which many persons have learnt to attach ideas of indofinito horror. The following may tend in some degree to correct and modify those impressions]: Prison life in Siberia is of many varieties, according to the offeonces of lifferent indi viduals and the sentences which have been decrced in their cases. 'The lowest sentence is to simple banishment for three years, and the hardest to hard labour for life. The simple exile without imprisonment is ap. pointed to live in a certain town, district, or province, and he must report to the po lice at stated intervals, HIe may engage in certain specified occupations, or rather in any occupation whichl is not on a prohibited list; for example, hle may teach musio or painting, but may not teach languages, as they aflerd tihe opportunity for propagating revolutionary ideas. Ie may become a merchant, farmeor, mechanic, contractor,. or anything else of that sort, and it not frequently hap...

In these "piping times of poece," it is not easy to maintain among a population whose mom.n bors are, as a rule, pl)rtty fully occupied with civir, businoss, each in his own way, any very lively enthusiasmn for the routino of military organisation and discipline, though the molre showy and exciting inci. dents of " soldiering " may he oapahlo at any tino of oreating some oxoitemont; and the chlance of winnling a prizeo can liklewise oexertl, some stiinulating inlluenco, In tihe history of earlier times it is soeu how the peculiar military organisatioi of a bodly politic-say a feudal kingdom, has usually beemn main tained by the members of a dominant cl...
CURIOSITIES OF TAXATION. IV. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 28 September 1887
OUIOSITIrES OF TAXA? ION, (From All l1e Year Round,) IV. ONE Of the curiosities Of old taxation was the impost on foreigners. In time time of thie Plantagenets we find that foreigners ro sident in this country, besides paying double the ordinary rates of general taxation, had to pay the following alien poll-taxes: Mer chant strangers, permanently resident, forty shillings; ditto, temporarily resident, twenty shillings; others, not merchants, six shil. lings and eightpenco; broewers, twenty shlil lings. The Plantagonets also raised money on the " benevolent" principle-literally ap peals to the charityof their subjects. Ed. ward IV. being very Ihandsome, was remark ably successful at this method of extortion, particularly with tihe fair sex. It is related that one rich widow, captivated by his good looks, tabled twenty poundt with a good grace. The king was so pleased that hlo kissed her, and the lady immediately doubled lher henevolence " because she esteemed tihe kiss of a king so p...
