"INTERROGO" TALKS ABOUT THE COMPETITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

" INTERROGO" TALKS ABOUT THE COMPETITIONS. With this issue I complete my first series of Examination Questions. There have been nearly 200 competitors, and tlie examination papers submitted by manyof them have been highly creditable, both to the boys and girls who competed, and to the ladies and gentlemen by whom they were taught. It speaks well for all concerned that my questions, covering such a wide range of knowledge, should have been so satisfactorily answered by a large proportion of candidates. Many parents and teachers have written to thank me for doing something to interest their boys and girls in current events. What higher compliment could I receive ? The CHILDRENS NEWSPAPER aims at making Australian boys and girls well inf( rm id on such subjects as will be use- ful and instructive. Testimony, such as I have had from so many sources proves that I have not entirely failed. In the next issue the names of the 20 fortunate prize-winners will be published, and as soon after a...

The Pacific Cable. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

Tlie Pacific Cable. The Committee ap- pointed to consider the question of laying a cable between Brit ísh North America and Australia has recommended that the best route would be from Vancouver to Fanning Island, -3561 miles ; Fan- ning Island to Fiji, 2093 miles ; Fiji to Norfolk Island, 961 miles. Thence one branch would run to Queensland, 834 miles ; and another to New Zealand, 537 miles. A bet- ter route would substitute Honolulu for Fanning Island, but this would involve a departure from the plan of letting the cable touch none but British soil. Honolulu is the capital of the Sandwich Islands-an Amer- ican Colony.

The Transvaal Trouble. In the Transvaal the unrest still continues. President Kruger has had an interview at Bloemfontein, the capital of Orange Free State, with Sir A. Milner, British High Commissi* mer for South Africa, but he would not agree to the reasonable British de- mands Little more than one-third of the advilt males in the South African Republic have the right to vote, and the Boer President prac- tically refused to give LTtilanders the right, except under unaccept- able conditions. Things are there- fore in a very critical state, and some people think England may go to war to enforce obedience to her wishes.

British Settlement. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

British Settlement. At the beginning of this year a British Settlement was formed on the banks of the Musa River in the North-East of New Guinea. The country was only explored a few years ago, and now a company, including m.my N.S.W. gentlemen, has taken up 7000 acres of land. Dr. Vaughan, two white men, and six natives have settled down on the river bank, cleared the ground, built a house and store, and established friendly relations with the natives. They have a small oil launch, capable of sailing their river. Their object is the development of the rubber trade. On the South Coast of New Guinea the rubber trees have been wantonly destroyed in order to procure their yield. But at the Musa Settlement a rubber expert is to be employed to super- intend the tapping of the trees, so that they may not be injured. Rub- ber trees and vines are plentiful, and cotton, sago, and ginger also giow wild in the vicinity.

Sir Matthew Harris. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Children's Newspaper — 27 June 1899

Sir Matt li cw Harris. On Queen's Birthday the honour of knight- hood was conferred upon the Mayor of Sydney. Sir Matthew Harris, in replying to the congratulations of the aldermen, gave some interesting particulars concerning his father, Dr. Harris, one of the first physi- cians to arrive in Australia ; and he explained how Sydney's suburb, Ultimo, came to get its peculiar name. Sir Matthew said : Dr. Harris left London for this colony in the ship Neptune in June, 1789. He arrived in 1790. In 1803 Governor King granted him 43 acres, situated at what is now known as "Ultimo." Some curiosity has been shown by some to know why it was called " Ultimo." Dr. Harris, the proprietor, had used the word " Ultimo," whereas it was contended that it should have been " Proximo,' and won a lawsuit over a dispute as to which word he should have used, and that was why he adopted the name of " Ultimo."
