Some Recollections of an Old Journalist. Specially written for the Cumberland Argus A NIGHT ON THE MAUNGATUA. No. 1.—(Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 8 December 1888

Some Recollections of an Old Journalist;. Sp:eiiiU:/ ic-Ulcn for th:: Ciiuikrlaml Ari/ns By Old Potomac. A NIGHT ON THE MAUNGATUA. N-;. l.—fa,)ielmki!j My companion in the Jliiunirntua adventure was, as 1 have said, Fred. Jlu'ir, then a cleric in the well-known firm of W. and G. Turnbull and Co. We both lodged at, the famous 'Bedford House,' a huge wooden caravan serai perched on the top of the Bell Hill, over looking the busiest part of Princes-street. Both ' Bedford House ' and tho hill have dis appeared fheso many years, the latter having been carted away and thrown into tho harbour, forming the reclaimed irrouud at thn hoiid of Pelicbet Bay, on which are crectol stupendous warehouses and palatial offices and hotels. The lady who 'ran' and owned that boarding house ultimately made a. fortune— not out of her boarders, for she was too easy and good natured with tho impecunious, and provided too good a table for all hands for that. But out of sheer obstinacy. She would not remove fr...

Local Topics. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 8 December 1888

Local Topics. Vkiiily, Mr. Frank Fnrnoll is a political paradox ! How emi he reconcile Ills attendance at Hie; recent Ministerialist Caucus with giving his voice along with the tail ond of the Opposi tion on Dibbs's bogus vote of censure Y Since the Budget proposals of Mr. Burns had been exhaustively criticised before the Caucus came off, attendance at that gathering was naturally held by matter of fact peoplo to mean endorse ment of the Treasurer's policy. Had Mr. Darnell stopped away from Hie Caucus, the vote lie oast for the Opposition's resolution would have been a justifitablestep, however in consistent in appearance. Mr. Farnell, however, chose to execute his change of front movo'»ent in so oonundrumical n fashion as to have set a good many of his constituents all agog to learn his solution of the riddle !

THE FKUITGROW-EKS' ADVOCATE. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8. DROUGHT TEACHINGS. The lato drought made searching in quisition into tho -weak places of our district, aiul pointed out a lot of things to those who have uyes wherewith to soe. From tho reports of our corres pondents upon tho state of tho district (which appeared iu last Saturday's issue of the Ana us) a variety of lessons are to be extracted, to tho principal of which we propose to draw attontion in tlm fiiHrvn'iiin1 nrrifiln. The first lesson of all is that tho conditions havo ceased under which indolent reliance upon Providence was a safe policy for tho agriculturalist to pursue, the drought having made, it perfectly cloar that the odds aro immensely against those who do not put their shoulders to tho wheel in tho way of earnest intelligent self help. But it may be urged that the lato drought was somothing quite ab normal — that such a season as the last nine months has not been known for thirty-live years.and that consequently a...

Fruit Marketing Reform. TO THE EDITOR OF THE CUMBERLAND ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 8 December 1888

Pruit Marketing Reform. TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIIE OUMBEllIiAND ARUUS. Put, — At the last meeting of the Fruitgrow ers' Union of Now South Wales, a resolution was carried in favour of taking a ballot amongst all bona tide fruitgrowers, to decide whether a shilling deposit should be left by buyers, on each gin case, and sixpence on each half case ; or whether they should use a cheaper and smaller case to go witli tho fruit. To my mind, the Fruitgrowers' Union would have displayed a far greater amount of wisdom and business tact it they had simply passed a resolution con demning tho old system of marketing fruit in gin cases, which arc far too oxpensivo, and proposing that n less expensive case be made to take their place. Surely there noeds but a small amount of discrimination to bring one to a decision as to which would bo the better. To accept one shilling deposit on a case which costs two shillings is just simply playing into tho hands of tho unscrupulous buyer, and virtually means in...
