More Home Rule. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 September 1886
? More Home Klile. ' 'WHAT'these plans aro we, at present, have no idea. Mr. Parriell and his party have held a meeting at Dublin at which they passed resolutions declaims that nothing less than Mr. Gladstone's 'Government of Ireland i Bill would satisfy their demands, and imperatively calling for fresh remedial land legislation for Ireland. They say that' in' consequence of the continued fail in agricultural pricts, the Irish tenantry are unable to pay the reduced rents fixed ' by ' the Land Court, and that an Act putfan g ? a stop to evictions and sweeping away arrears is an: immediate necessity 'if the Irish fanners ? are to live. An instructive ? ;side' commentary on this statement is ? supplied by the finding of a ' ru'ined''Trish farmer' lying intoxicated' in the roadway ' 'the'other day. -'The ':poor ' man had been ?'??'driven' from his homestead because he was ''??uriable' to pay'his rent. and had, doubt less- -sought to drown his cares in drink.

New Cable. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 September 1886
TVew Cable. Mr. Randolph Want, solicitor to the New South Wales Government, is still persever ing with tho scheme for laying a cable across the Pacific'from Vancouver's Island to either Brisbane or Sydney aud New .Zealand. The progress of the scheme has ?been interrupted partly by the death of Sir -Aiexanaer Douart anaparciy oy cue electoral crisis through which we have been passing. Now, however, thattbe new Government has been installed in office, Mr. Want has renewed his .efforts to push tho project. -and has applied to the Admiralty to com plete their survey of the proposed line of : route. This will probably run from Syd ney or ^Brisbane to North Capo, from . 'North Cape to one of the Fiji Islands, .from the Fijis to Fanning Island, from Fanning Island' to ths Sandwich Islands, -from the Sandwich Islands to Barclay ? Sound or Port San Juan, Vancouver Island, across Vancouver Island and the Strait of Georgia to Varicouver'City. This .'Will constitute the first section of the cab...
GOVERNMENT WHARF ARRANGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 September 1886
GOVERNMENT WHARF ARRANGE MENTS; Sir, — Through tho medium of your open column I would draw your atteution, and that of the publio of Coraki and distriot, to the present very unsatisfactory arrange ment for landing and storage of c&Tgo at our Government Wharf and Store. - At present it annears tho concern is under tho supervision of Trustees, and soma short timo sinco they appointed Hr. Percy (a thoroughly trustworthy man), to tho charge of tho store, authorissing him to charge storage fees on goods aftor the expiration of throo days. In ninety-nine cases out of the hundred the goods are - takon delivery of before tbat timo expires. This moans no remuneration for the cus todian for his labour and trouble storing tho goods. The place is large, dry, ana . commodious, and might be used with considerable advantago by persons hairing limited storage accommodation, and I would suggest for tho better workiDg of the concern and the good of the „publio genorally, that tonaors be calle...
Wanted—A Progress Committee. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 September 1886
Wanted— A Progress Committee. There can be little doubt that a great deal of the negligence Coraki and its surroundings have suffered from at the bands of the various Governments during the past years, has resulted in a large measure from the apathy of the inhabitants in looking after their own interests. The first remedy that pre sents itself to one's notice as being the proper and natural one, is, the embodi ment of a number of citizens into a committee to look after the interests of the immediate district, and this is usually done by what is called a Progress Committee. We understand that once upon a time some such thing was started in Coraki, but died from a chronic attack of atrophy — as might have been expected. At all events if not dead it shows no signs of life. There is an old saying that if a thing is not worth asking for it is not worth having, and most assuredly, judging by results, there can have been little or no persistency in the asking of .the members of this commit...
AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 September 1886
AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. Sir, — In your last issue I r9ad an able article under tho abovo heading, and must say that it certainly is time that a move was mado to ostablish suoh a Society in j Coraki. Wo aro possessed of every con vonionce that could be wuuted for holding ' an exhibition — being in a grand centre, having water communication from all parts, I and the old racocourso, with very little monoy spont on it would mako a splendid ? j exhibition ground. I hopo that tho farming | population around Coraki will wake up j and have a mootiug callod, and take steps ! towards the formation of a Sooiety, whion, I feel sure aftor a fow years, would ba~ 8o«ond to none in tho northern distriot. —Yours, &c., PUMPKIN.

I was present, and it is a well-known fact that Royal Plantation was far aud away tho, favorito, whereas tho other horso had few admirors. I sent mares to Royal Plantation last yoar and shall do this, and I havo no hesitation iu saying that scores of other farmers on the river aro of my opinion and will do so also. It , is a pity that tho Ciihoniole hasn't more, sonso than to givo an opiuion upon what ho ovidontly does not know anything about, and in my humblo opinion ono that stamps him as an nttor ignoramus or something worso. I hopo you will insort this Mr. Editor, in justice to tho owner of ' Royal Plantation. ...
