Bellinger Progress Committee. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

Bellinger Progress Committee. AT the last meeting held at Boat Harbour, considerable discussion ensued in reference to the state of some of the roads, especially up the river. ; Mr. F. MYEES proposed, "That Messrs Hogan and Dangar be asked to use their influence to get ; Mr. Statham sent over to inquire into the neglected state of the roads on the Tipper Bellinger; some of these roads having had nothing done to them during the last 18 months, and are conse- quently unfitted for ordinary traffic." Seconded by Mr. H. JAEBETS. This motion met with considerable oppo- sition, being considered harsh and altogether unnecessary. An amendment "was moved by Mr. T. BAKEI, and seconded by Mr. E. WILLIAMS, jun., "That the Secretary be instructed to communicate with the Roads' Department, asking for an explanation from the Road Superintendent as to why the road from Boggy Creek to Never Never is allowed to remain in its present almost impassable condition." ? The amendment was put and lost by one...

Mrs. Gordon Baillie. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

Mrs. Gordon Baillie. A LADT correspondent, writing in London World a description of a visit to Pentonville, thus refers to a person well-known in Aus- tralia:-"As we enter another long gallery of cells the warder whispers to me, 'The first cell on the left.' The door, like all the cell doors, has been thrown open, and inside, facing us, tall, erect, her head thrown back, stands a most beautiful woman. The strong light from the window falls on a mass of dark golden hair, which seems to rebel openly against the white prison cap. The face, with its bright dark eyes, is somewhat in shadow ; and as she stands there in the white cell she looks like some wild falcon that has been trapped and caged for a time only, and who as soon as she regain her liberty, will know how to use her strong pinions, as well as her beak and talons, just as well as ever she did. And it may be said that she has used them, for this beautiful creature is none other than the notorious Mrs. Gor- don Baillie, whose b...

Commercial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

Commercial. BUSINESS is still quiet, and activity dees not exist in any line. The wet weather has caused a tempo - rary stagnation, which will doubtless wear off when traffic is fully resumed. Cane-crushing operations, timber drawing, and other avocations could noe be proceeded with owing to the excessive ?wet. To-morrow Mr. H. Maurice will sell at Ulmarra .some very superior furniture ; and or. Friday he will submit athis rooms, 2-10choice trees, ferns,potplants and flowers, from the Somerset Nursery, Parramatta. There is but little doing in stock, but prices are fully maintained. Owners of low-lying country complain of destruction of grass by flood waters.

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1359.]_ ~TUESDAY MORNING, 13TH AUGUST, 1889. Ignorance, Foolishness and Prejudice. Mn. BHUCE Siinn admits that the present Ministry have accepted with two exceptions the Kailway proposals of the STUAIÍT-1)IBBS GOVERNMENT. The exceptions are the two lines that would be the most profitable to the State, and calculated more than any of the others to break down Centralization. The lines referred to are the Bega-Eden and the Grafton-Glen Innes. Two members of the Public "Works Committee expressed, in the same debate, their opinions upon the subject. The one Mr. JACOB GAKKAUD, member for Balmain (it is well to have his full name and qualification) said " If the hon. member for Glen Innes (Mr. "Wright) lives to be 100 or 150 years of age it is quite possible that the population between Glen Innes and Grafton will warrant the construction of that line." "What a nice perception of the progress of a country this gentleman has, justifying his be...

Niggardly and Unjust. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

Niggardly and Unjust. WE cannot quite endorse the force, or correct- ness, of the departmental reply based upon Mr. STATHAJI'S report in reference to that portion of the Armidale Road between West's Camp and Blick's River. The Armidale road appears, in these days, to bc known by different names. Evidently in departmental documents it now stops short at Hillgrove station. The recent application, which spoke of the road as from Guy Fawkes to Grafton, we conceive, was in no way intended to double on the department as if it were a distinct road. There is now very little traffic upon the Armidale road between that town and the Guy Fawkes. The bulk of the traffic-and that is very heavy-is between the Guy Fawkes and Grafton. Hence, probably with the object of assuring any appropri- ation that might be granted, being expended upon that portion of the road that most needed it, the applicants spoke of it as the road from Guy Fawkes to Grafton. In any case, there wa3 no necessity for thc rebuf...

Lawrence. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

Lawrence. ?J MONDAY. Foolish Haste.-Your writing is good, ant you mast learn that a capital letter follows a full stop. You run your sentences on evenly, as though punctuation were of no importance. This is what a schoolmaster once said when criticising an essay prepared by a pupil. That remark may serve as a fair illustration of what is being done just now in connection with the Progress Association. Public meetings of the electors of this district have been twice convened through the press, for the purpose of obtaining some absolute and distinct expression pf opinion as to the position of this organisation, and the wishes of the people as to future operations ; but the floods prevented them being held. The weather has hardly Bettled, and people scarcely had time to turn themselves round, when an advertise- ment in Saturday's Examiner purporting to come from the Lawrence Progress Association, and signed James Murphy, Hon. Sec., notifies that a regular monthly meeting of members wil...

Millions of Babies. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 13 August 1889

Millions of Babies. IT has been computed that between 36,000,000 and 37,000,030 of babies are born into the world each year. The rate of production is therefore about 70 a minute, or rather m';re than one for every beat of the clock. With the one-a-minute calculation every reader is familiar, bot i' ia not every one who stops to calculate what this means when it comes to a year's supply. And it will probably, therefore, startle a good many persons to fled on the authority of a writer in the hospital, that could the infants of a single year be ranged in line in cradles seven deep they would go round the globe. We have the ingenious conclusion also that, sup- posing the little ones grow up and the sexes to be about equally divided, we should have an army 100 times as large ai the forcei of the British Empire, with a wife iu addition to every soldier. The same writer looks at the matter ia a still more picturesque light. He imagines the babies being carried past a given point in their ...

Main Roads through Municipalities. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 17 August 1889

Main Roads through Municipalities. Respecting the letter from the Lismore Council) requesting the Council to assist in urging the Gov- ernment to grant a mileage vote for maintenance of main roads through municipalities, the Mayor moved--" That this Council is of opinion that the .maintenance of main roads by the Government through borough towns, is not the most desirable course to pursue, but rather that an equal endow- ment be made, leaving the Council to decide in which street or streets the money should be spent." He was willing to admit that in municipal districts like Ulmarra, the Government should grant a mile- age vote for maintaining the main roads that passed through, until the Local Government Bill became operative, but this could not apply to a borough town such as Grafton, where there was no specified main road passing through it. It should be left to the competition of the citizens to decide which was the greatest business centre, and he thought that they should have t...
