Telegraphic. BRITISH AND FOREIGN. LONDON, Wed. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 19 August 1897

Telegraphic. BRITISH AND FOREIGN. LONDON, Wed. ' A duel between the Count of Turin and the Due d'Orléans was fought on Monday last with swords. The Due* d'Orléans was wounded in the breast and abdomen. The affair was sharp and determined. The duelists fought through five attacks.

Our Sydney Letter. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE LAND AND INCOME TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 19 August 1897

Our SydneyLetter. ; (FROM OUR OWS CokKEsroNOENT.) 1 THE LAND AND INCOME TAX. ? Since roy last the knock-out blow which ha«. been given ' (by Judge Manning's decision) to tho .Land and Income Tax Assessment Act has been the most excit- ing topic in political circles. . The Op- position seem to take it more philoso- phically than the Government. To people «ho don't know, it might seem that an occurrence tending to discredit the administration so deeply, and so irretiierably had put the prizes of office almost within their grasp. As a matter of fact, however, if the present occupants of the Treasury Benches were to emulate the conduct of Colonel Crockett's coon, who preferred to come down before the shooting instead of afterwards-in other words, if they were to resign without debate aud ask their friends opposite to j take their places, the Opposition could nut hold thu position thus tendered them. And they know it. That is tho reas m why they make a great show of fighting when they kn...

A notice has been posted through- out the streets of Constantinople stating that unless the Armenians have their demands for reform acceded to by the Porte, dynamite will be. freely used for the future. The Palace has been threatened and double guards arc now stationed all round. Eight Armenians including a priest were arrested yesterday and, on being searched, four dynamite bombs were found. The Press pf Germany is decided in its opinion . as to what Germany's attitude to Great Britain should bc.

The Sugar Industry. CENTRAL MILL SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897

The Sogar Industry. CENTRAL MILL SÏSTKM. In delivering: the Financial State-; ment in the House, Hon. R.

In ] spite of an extremely adverse season in some dist riet«, t he area of . laud under cultivation is so rapidly increasing that the. crop harvested in, 1896 reaehed 100.000 ton?, exceeding . that' of the previous j eur hynearly 15,000 tons, .nil being the largest ever made in the colony. This year again a considerable ?rea of the sng^r-growing districts has suffered from a continuance' «>f 'dry weather, and it is doubtful whether, in spite of the larger area under cultiva- tion, the output will be any gloater than in 1896.

The Opening of New Fruit Markets. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897

The Opening of New Fruit Markets. At the last intercolonial fruit con- ference Mr F. C. Smith, of South Australia, read a paper on " How to Open up New Markets for Our Fruits." The success of the apple export trade was unquestioned, but the Australian apple was an ont of season frnit in Great Britain, and the outlet was so limited that if Australia doubled the apple export in any one season the English market would be. glutted. Citrous fruit growers, however,., had better prospects before them, und when the carriage of grapes became a thing ' to be as safely relied upon as that of apples there was a very considerable market awaiting exporters. It was when they came to place their fruit, preserved in varions forms, upon out- side markets that they met the most acute competition, unprotected by natural conditions of any sort, and b*ndicapped hy artiBcial. an«, nth u 1 clifapneiia otlitbonr und prodoction In J some countries, advanced and improved methods and varieties in others, and t...

The Sugar Industry and its Requirements. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897

The Sugar Industry and its Requirements. Speaking of,the magnitude of the sugar industry in Queensland, Mr. E. Denham has given the follow- ing figures in a paper recently read by him :-The Sugar Com- mission his shown, that between four and five millions »tmling were invested in the sugar industry, and it gave an annual disbursement exceeding £800,000. At that periodthe sogar industry was represented by about 20 large planters; to-day it was reprp * sented by about 1500 iioria fide faiuiers, of whom he (Mr. Denman) and his colleague represented 500. Adverting to the bounty paid to assist the sugar industry in Europe, and the j sacrifice thus made by the people of r: Germany, he maid be thought be wrns not asking, .too :much. iii asking the .

"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear, nor by favor, but by Truth alone." Thursday Morning. August 25, 1897. SHOW WEEK. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897

"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear, nor by favor, but by Truth alone?' Thursday If omine. Aurutt 28,1897. SHOW WEEK. On Tuesday next the annual Show of the Cairns Agricultural, Pastoral and Mining Association will be held in. the'Show Grounds and in the Divisional Hall. Show * week is esspntially a gala , week in Cairns. Visitors from the South and from the ' outlying districts come into town, and things fairly hum. The ground show is, of course, the real centre of attraction, and, perhaps, nowhere in Northern Queensland can a better'show of the kind be seen. Cairns is not a pastoral district, and hitherto the station owners have not thought it worth while to send down stud stock for exhibition, but it is lo be hoped that in the ne; r future, the feeling of rivalry will become keen enough to induce a large number of such exhibits. In thc Southern towns a station considers hardly any expense too great in the preparation of stock exhibits for such shows, and if they 'can only carry off ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897

Summarised, the position on the post year according to thc Financial statement is : Revenue, £3,613,150;*: ; expenditure, £3,604,163; surplus. ¿8887. ~ Gentlemen of the Opposition smiled sardonically at the mention of the little surplus. The facts illustrative of the possibilities were a trifle more serions, fair whereas Mr Philp looked to revenue to supply bim with £3,671,919 (¿58,769 nure than last year), be expected outgoings woald run him into £$,<>99,71S Thns, if these;predictions wererealised, it would leave him with a deficiency at the end of the year of £27,806. To meet this Mr Philp had a little. scheme-to reimpose-the beer excise of 3d per gallon (which would jive him ¿55000 net), and to balance things for the local brewer he proposed to put an extra 3d duty on the imported article. Ose natur-' ally expected to hear something at least about " the poor min's beer," and all the rest of it. Bat the response the proposal met was a very general, " Hear, hear," and...

The Hodgkinson Goldfield. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 26 August 1897

The Hodgkinson Goldfield. The report of the Mining Commission deals with the Hodgkinson goldfield in no anea tain manner. Among other things it states that at the time of its desertion the avenge depth of its workings was 200 feet, work be- ing carried on without winding machinery, with inferior gold-saving appliances, and at a cost for carting stone to the mill and for the necessaries of life that would have been pro- hibitive on many other fields. The miners who had gone to the above-named rushes felt that it was useless to return without capital and machinery, and oaring to its re- mote position, capitalists appear to have never heard of its wonderful possibilities, and so the Hodgkinson remained practically in oblivion, until Mr. Jack, the Government Geologist, in the ordinary course of his official duties, visited, examined and reported upon it. Says Mr. .Teck, " The agents of capital are running all over the world looking for mines such as have been abandoned on the Hodg- kins...
