Railways. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 23 August 1890

Eailwayt. ? Mr Munro, on the 23rd July last, moved for a re turn showing the addi tional sums expended over and above * contract prices by the department upon all lines constructed since 1884, detailing the extra expenditure upon each line after having been taken over from the contractors. The re turn was furnished on Tuesday. .The Creswickto Dayiesford line was the most expensive in the list there being over £20,000 extras, including station buildings, £10,000 odd .being extras for land and compensation. The list as a whole goes to 6how that even after the department has taken over a line its expense is by no means done with; The various ' headings j under which the expenses were in- ] curred are classified as follows Land and compensation, engineering, station buildings, water supply, &c., telegraph, permanent- way, materials, miscellaneous. It appears that it is the practice of the department to ex pend £2000, and in some cases £3000 per mile for equipping and finishing a...

Local and General. Notice. — On our fourth page will be found Gazette notices, essay on smoking and general news items. Municipal. — The Yackandandah Shire Council should have met on Tuesday, for the purpose of electing a president for the ensuing year. It was adjourned, however, to the date of the ordinary meeting, Sep tember 4th. There can be no prophesying as to who the new president will be, but as Cr Richardson is the senior councillor of the Yackandandah Riding, it is probable the honor will be conferred upon him. Lecture. — We beg to give a reminder that Mr Crichton, lecturer under the De partment^ Agriculture, will lecture at the 6hirehall this evening on 'Fruit-growing' Mr Crichton lectured at Barnawartha on Thursday evening, on 'vines'. Mr Crich ton made a mistake in the appointments, and thought he was billed for Yackand l andah on Thursday. Accordingly he | came from Beechworth by the afternoon coach. Finding he was in error he engaged i a buggy and drove across. Rifle C...

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 23 August 1890

Mining . The report of the Mining Department for the quar- ter ending June 30th is very satisfactory indeed, and we are pleased to notice that special men-   tion is made of the revival in mining in the North-eastern and Omeo dis- tricts. The report states that there has been a decided improvement   during the quarter in general mining, and prospects are more encouraging. The development of tin mines in the Omeo district is recognised as a matter of vast importance, whilst the | development of the alluvial mines in the Beechworth mining district has   been very satisfactory. The amount of gold produced in each district was   as follows : — Beechworth, 17,192 oz ; Ballarat, 51,304 oz ; Sandhurst, 37,482 ounces ; Maryborough, 14,232 oz.; Gippsland, 12,931 oz.; Castlemaine, 12,890 oz.; and Ararat, 5,155 oz. From alluvial 54,492 ozs. were obtained, and 96,999oz. from quartz. There was   no gold other than the produce of th...

Mining Nuggets. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 23 August 1890

Mining Nuggets. A meeting of the Yackandandah Pros-     pecting Association was held at the shire hall on Saturday evening last. There were present— Messrs J. Haig (chairman), Rome, Molyneux, Michelsen. (secretary),   and Blair (working foreman).

The North Yackandandah Sluicing Com-   pany are in the midst of boring operations,     for which Mr Stanley is the contractor.

Correspondence. [We do not identify ourselves with opinions expressed by correspondents] [TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.] THE OSBORNE'S FLAT BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 23 August 1890

Correspondence                     [We do not identify ourselves with opinions expressed by correspondence.] [To The Editor of The Times.] THE OSBORNE'S FLAT BRIDGE. Sir - In the interest of the greater number of ratepayers I trust that our " City Fathers " will stay their hands in letting a contract for this bridge ; in time it will be a necessity. Were   a plebiscite taken of the storekeepers and other business people of the town, I feel convinced. that they would pre- fer seeing money expended in improv- ing the road, near James ; the Mar'- cus gully bridge wants raising and some cutting and filling effected, When the farmers are carting their produce to the town and railway station, the creek is low and the ford in good order, whilst the Marcus gully pinch is there all the time. The bulk of the produce will come from the Long Swamp. and t...

Yackandandah Debating Club. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 23 August 1890

Yackandandah Debating Club. Paper read by Mr Charles H. Darton at first meeting of the Yack- andandah Debating Society : — WHY SMOKING SHOULD BE DISCON- TINUED . It is not my intention to enter   into detail as regards the history of tobacco. It is sufficient for my pur-   pose to describe the evil effects which tobacco has upon those who use it. In order that I may be able to deal more concisely with each ' effect,' I think it better to arrange this essay under separate headings, dealing with each consecutively. Firstly, I will consider the effect of smoking upon the healthy ; secondly, the barrier which the smoking habit forms against social intercourse thirdly, filthiness of the habit itself.; and fourthly, the expense which is incurred through in- dulgence of the habit of smoking. Firstly, then, I will consider the effect of smoking upon the health. The   active or poisonous principle of tobacco is nicotine — a colorless, volatile, oily liq...

STRIKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 30 August 1890

Strikes. The trouble in the Bhipping trade, that has recently come into operation is already begin ning to be felt on all sides. Not only does the strike mean a complete block to the unloading of vessels, but the various trades in the colony are also showing signs of its influence. The latest development is the turn out of the stokers in the metropolitan gas company, who object to use coal landed by non-union men. It is prin cipally respecting the coal supplies that Victoria will suffer, as the stop page thereof affects all branches of trade. Coal is necessary for the oper ations of factories, workshops and foundries, and if the supply fail, there is no alternative but a general cessa tion of work. Not only will the me tropolis be affected, but the country districts must also share in the incon veniences, and unless some amicable arrangement soon be arrived at, the results of the strike will be of a di sastrous character. A quarter of a century ago, strikes in England gen erally car...

These factories purchased six and a quarter million gallons of milk, representing a payment to the farmers of over £100,000, and the 'butter manufactured was worth £3,000,000. In his concluding re marks he said, ' We could as well have; 600 factories as €0, and might expect to turn out ten tons of .butter a Week for one at present.'

Wodonga Bullets. RE-CAST FROM THE "SENTINEL" [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 30 August 1890

Wodonga Bullets. Re-cast prom the 'Sentinel' We acknowledge the favorable cri tique, but we object to Yack being called the township of many syllables. It's getting monotonous. If the ab original who invented this euphonious name took a day or two longer over it than Wodonga, and resolved to make a raip upon the printers' 'a's' it is no reason why we should be re minded of it. By-the-by we are fast using up our 'a's', and if the Sen tinel will send along some of theirs, we might manage to scrape up a few 'o's' by way of return. It is of no use dropping a hint at Tallangatta.
