The Maize Industry. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 15 September 1888

The Maiee Ia4ustay. Not many weeks ago we pointed out in an article in this journal the injustice of allow ing maize grown by convict labour to come into competition with the farmers of Now South Wales, and those of the northern rivers in particular ; but little did we then think that the Hon. J. H. Young would endorse what we said in such words us these : — ' The farmers in this colony had, he thought, in ono respect, been badly treated. He diJ not think that it was right that, in the produc tion of maize, they should have been placed in con i petition with maize grown by convicts, or by slave labour. Hut ho would not put a duty on the importation of that grain — the produce of the Kaffirs of Africa, or from Fiji, or from Niumea — but he would pro hibit the importation from these places altogether.' We cannot go quite bo far as ?Mr. Young and advocate the prohibition of tin's foreign grain ; but we are in unison witli him when he says ' the farmers hnve bfun badly treated.' Tliey h...

The Redfern Election. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 15 September 1888

The Eedfern Election. Not slowly, but with rapidity, are the ranks of the freetraders being deserted to uphold the standard of protection ; and the life of the present Government is fast ebbing away. Redferu, hitherto one of the strongest redoubts of the frentrade party, has been partly captured by their opponents, and it only awaits a general election till it is fully garrisoned with protectionist representatives. Notwithstanding that the free.trade journals in Sydney said that the freetraders were determined on completely wiping out of exis tence all trace of protection, for which pur pose the cause of Mr. J. A. Martin was strongly advocated by Sir Henry Farkes and other members of the Government, the pro tectionists turned the tables, and Mr. P. Howe was elected by -tlie substantial majority of 852 votes over his opponent, the voting being Howe 2957, Martin 2105, informal 77. The contest was a most exciting one, both parties using every endeavour to secure a victory on tlie merit...

Public Forks. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 15 September 1888

Public Parks. Wiiilb there is a considerable amount of talk going ou about the appointment of trustees to cerUin land dedicated .for park purposes, it might not bo out of place for us to make a few remarks. The appoint ment of gentlemen to act as trustees, although gem-rally considered as a mere matter of form, is a subject to which con sideration should be ci'vhii. We consider that it becomes the duty of any gentlemen who act in this position to improve the lands which have been placed under their care. Take for instance the recreation at (he back of the pilot station. This is nothing more than a ban* piece of land, without even a fence round it or a bliru'.i growing upon it ; and u great part of it was a marsh until the cricket club hud it drained ; and in its present coi.dition it is li.'.'dy to ranmiii. This should not be so. The trustees should endeavour to get a sum of money voted for its improvement, and make it a resort to which people would seek to go during their leisure h...
