THE SOLOMON ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 10 January 1896

THE SOLOMON ISLANDS. Captain Joseph Vo*, of the Sydney schooner Oacar Robins n,'arrived recently from the island of Malayta in the Solo mon group, where he has been cruising for the past few months. Malayta is noted as containing the most savage tribes amongst the Polynerians, and the canni bal propensities of the natives are much stronger there than in any other of the Solomon islands. During the trading trip of the Oscar Robinson, business was negotiated upon very careful, not to say stringent, lines. It is unsafe to turn round when ashore, and to permit a native to get behind one shows a want of discretion. All trading is done face to face, so much merchandise for so much copra, shell, or ivory v.ub ; but the deal is made pleasantly enough, though not with the cordiality present at some other islands. Captain Vos, who introduced the phonograph to the Solomons a few years ago, knows the peculiarities of his friends bo well that he would aa soon do business on the Malayta coast as ...

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 10 January 1896

LOCAL GOVERNMENT. The Ooulburn Herald says: — A system of local government is likely to be intro duced during next session of Parliament. This will certainly involve new taxes: It will therefore be for our rulers to take care that as new burdens are imposed under thia measure at least a correspond ing amount of the existing imposts shall be removed. Otherwise the community will be taxed to an enormous extent be yond what has ever been the case, or h?B been thought of, before. The burdens borne by the people here are already greater than iu almost any other country in the world, and total about two millions more than in the adjoining co'ony of Victoria. Ifc may be said truly that the limit of our capacity to bear taxation without injury has been reached if nob exceeded. And wd trust it will be borne in iniad whenever tho local government measure comes undfr consideration that we cannot suddenly djuble, nor e^en largely increase, our burdens and con tinue prosperous And if the extent ...

Old Sam, as the skipper of the craft in supreme danger, stuck to the reins, bat failed to guide the runaway safely round a turn of the road, aud the cart and driver rolled over and over down- the steep side of the mouQtain to the gulf below. .At the critical moment, the. harness .gave way, and with a timely wrench the hpr'je set itself free.

Next day teamster Barry, from Sutton Brothers, Fj,aley, arrived with, his teaTi hauling only 161 bags, being nine bags batter than Evan's. This load 'weighed 20 tons 4cwt. 3qr. It is said there are one or two other waggons capable of carrying up to 200 bags, aud they will go some batter than Barry.
