The necessity for proper Court ac commodation becomes more and more evident each Court day. Tho room at present used for holding the Courts is far and away too small for the re quirements of the place, aud is a libel on the community. Mullumbimby is rapidly growing and being the centre of a large and prosperous district, its importance demands that it should at least be provided with a fitting and properly equipped Court-house. The present apology for a Court house iB a disgrace, to the Justice Department. There is no Bench, no witness box, and magistrates, solici tors, reporters, and witnesses are all crowded round one table. If there is a case of .public interest, an at tend ance of about 20 or 30 persons packs the Court, and numbers crowd round the door and open window, making the room stuffy, and in summer time almost unbearable. „ The P.M. has ,on various occasions, from his seat on the Bench, commented on the inade quate accommodation, and the neces sity — owing to the importa...
Wilson's Creek. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 2 June 1906
Wilson's Creek. (From our Corresponuent). The bounteous rams and late sum mer weather has caused an extra ordinary growth in vegetation, and if one were unacquainted with the sea sons would be inclined to believe that we were about to enter upon a prom ising spring instead of a cold mid winter. i tie ramtall trom Tuesday, Z2nd, until Thursday night, was a record one, and all the creeks were full to overflowingi, Timber and debris which USg^U^Sssa^g^ed from previous floods has tvii been swept away ; large waterfalls burst over the cliffs in all directions, falling some 300ft., mak ing a magnificent sight while it lasted. The- record taken by Mi\ Staines, at his residence, registered slightly over 1200 points of rain in two days. Abortion is very prevalent amongst cows here, and farmers* are at a loss to know what is the cause of it. -It may probably be due to devouring wild peach, which grows here in pro fusion, and is said to be very injuri ous to cattle. Sometimes the major ity of ...

North Coast Floor. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 7 July 1906
North Coast Floor. The Suothern Star, commenting 011 the above, says : — The decision of the shareholders of the North Coast Company to es tablish their own floor in Sussex* street, Sydney, ' serves to remind us of the long defunct Bega District Farmers' .Union, which long before the advent of the factory system of manufacture, lannclied a similar pro ject, and it is not unlikely that tho North Coast project will be con. fronted with the same illegitimate opposition and tactics that ultimately brought about the downfall of tho Bega floor years ago. The latter was launched after much hard work and constant agitation by a few earnest men, prominent amongst whom we might mention Mr Anctfew Smith, then of Numbuggu, now of Pambula side. - Tte necessity for such a floor then was far more urgcnt. thaii it is to-day, as tho agents then had the dairyman com pletely at their mercy, and fattened on his simplicity and gullibility. His butter, etc., was regularly bought in by the agent, and sold...
Redwater Over the Border. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 7 July 1906
Itedwater Over the Border. The ' Beaudesert Herald ' published on Friday last the following leading article : — ' In a recent issue we drew the attention to stock owners in the Logan and Albert districts'to the fact that that dire cattle disease, commonly known as redwater, had broken out. The spread of this disease should not be lightly set a side, as it is sure to.bo a inenaco to tho dairy herds in tlielse districts. We are informed from various quarters that some 20 or' 30 cattle' have' succumbed to it quite recently. If we pnt tho value of a dairy cow at £8 or £10 this means a pretty heavy aggregate loss to the districts. (One dairy farmer near Beaudesert, so weare informed, lost a bull valued at 30 guineas.) But it is as nothing to the loss that may occur if redwater gets the ascendancy, and the disease becomes general instead of merely appearing in isolated local ities. How'' is such a calamity to be averted V This question can best be answered by a clear understanding of the ...

1 Cablegrams. The Egyptians who killed Captain -Bull, of the Inniskilling Drageons, while he was pigeon-sliooting at Tantah, have been guilty of murder and sentenced. Four of the murderers are to 'be hanged, four to be imprisoned for life, three for 15 years, and nine for shorter terms, while five are to re ceive 50 lashes each.
