ROOKWOOD LOAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895
BOOKWOOD LOAN. Shall we borrow or not ? Alderman LmBDEV, of Bookwood, asked his fellow Councillors of that municipality last week ; and they, one and all, replied in the negative— except Alderman Lidbcky himself. That alderman, however, de clines to accept the' decision, and pro poses to appeal to the ratepayers. The whole matter is in a nutshell. Re munerative borrowing is a fine art. Almost any man can borrow — at least, I almost any municipality can — but it requires stalled (even perhaps more than honest) bands and intellects to do so to advantage. That there is a risk should be no deterrent at all. The whole question is one of thrift in expenditure. Provided a borrowed pound be spent with the care with which a sovereign received for rates would be spent, the process of borrowing must be advan tageous all round; that is, supposing our aldermen are equal to making 2s 6d do the work of half-a-crown. Even if men borrow solely ' to get out of a financial hole,' the borrowing is not ...

Sherbrooke. THE HON. J. GARRARD AT FAIRFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895
Sherbrooke. THE HON. J. GARRARD AT FAIRFIELD. The Hon. J. Garrard (Minister for Public Instruction) who is seeking re-election as member for Sherbrooke, addressed the electors oi the Fairfield district at the local hall on Tuesday evening. The building was well filled, and the candidate had, on the whole, an excellent hearing. Mr. D. Dale occupied the chair. The Chairman having briefly referred to the occasion of the election, introduced the candi date. Mr. Garrard said he desired, at the outset; to make an explanation. It was a tact — out of I which, no doubt, political capital would be I made in the electorate — that he had at last 1 election declared for a land tax only as con nected with a Local Government measure. . But when he took his seat, he saw that the I majority were in favour of Local Government, ] a State Land Tax, and retrenchment. When asked by Mr. Beid to join him, he had asked the policy of the new Premier, and finding that that policy would be in favour of direct ...

Barry acted as conductor, and Mr. Pidcock i presided at the organ. I

POULTRY NOTES. [Bv 'Dobkdio.'] THE SYDNEY POULTBY SHOW. This show, which is annually held in the Exhibition Building, was more than ordinarily successful this year. Open last Wednesday until Saturday, its very large number of exhibits at tracted many sight-seers. Our local fanciers this year have little to complain of as regards their treatment by the judges, and especially is this tbe case with Mr. S. B. Watkihs, of Toongabbie, who carried off over twenty awards, among them being the watkin'k CHAHFION OAlfE COOK ins HEN. Champion Cup (£8 6s) for best Aus tralian Game Cock in the Show, and a Special for the best Brown Leghorn Cockerel exhibited. These winning birds were the centre of attraction throughout the Show.

OPEN COLUMN. A CALL TO FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895
OPEN COLUMN. A CALL TO FIGHT. Neveb in the history of the world have the electors, in any country, perhaps, had an issue put before them more satisfactory and more sublime, as viewed from the democratic standpoint, than that ?which the voters of New South Wales stand face to face with to-day. It is not for us to point out, here and now, particular individuals for whom the electors of any particular district should vote. If voters have not intelligence enough, interest enough, patriotism enough, to know what will best serve their greater interests, they deserve to find themselves, in the long run, left simmering in the broth of their own folly and apathy. To-day the issue throughout New South Wales is not Dibbs versus Beid, or Protection versus Freetrade ; but the will of the People, against hopeless conservatism ; the interests of the colony against the sophistries of blind, discredited poli ticians. We have lost our Statesmen of old ; the result of the present election may give us ...
"THE FIELD" FOR JULY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895
' THE FIELD ' FOE JULY. The Australian Field for current month is to hand. It is an intensely readable produc tion, and oovers an immense range of subjects from politics downwards (or upwards) to in dustrial production in the garden and dairy, on the farm and sheep-run, in the orchard and poultiy-yard, and even in the kitchen and the home work-room. We observe a notice of the recent road -making -trial at North Parra matta. under ' me i-arm ' section n wui in terest others besides agriculturists to observe that after a trial of at least 5000 years the plough has been voted 'an enemy to fer* tility,' and various American authorities unite in declaring that the invention most called for is a substitute which will meet the require* ments of mankind. The illustrations scat tered throughout this publication increase ~ite attractiveness. The editorials are vigorous and energetic in tone, and if the author's politics are conservative it cannot be dienied that bis language is dear and his v...
BACK FROM COOLGARDIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895

Lamb, J.P., is baok from his | trip in West Australia- He has had rather a ' rough time o? it since his departure from here on the 2nd of March, *94. During his stay in Coolgardie, he was down in the Government Hospital ' with what they call over there ' (as he puts It) typhoid fever. However, tne cheery whip (ana who has not sat behind him with enjoyment, when he has been handling the ribbons, and guiding a spftriuing team over our Hill roads) is little tho worse for his illness. We did not press him as to his stores of I nuggets ; but as he missed seeing Weston I when the latter was going through the golden city peraapH ne uiuj uu» touiuwu mure uuhi £250,000. Mr. Lamb was in Coolgardie when the bottom appeared to drop out of the 'Londonderry'; and he Anym the sensation the evil report caused was something to be re membered. In Coolgardie, new Government offices are being erected, — of stone. The hosp...
