TO THE Ratepayers of Maclean. Ladies and Gentlemen [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 8 February 1898

TO THE Ratepayers of Maclean. Ladies and Gentlemen— Having been nominated as a candidate for the Municipal Council, I beg to Bnbmit to you my views upon municipal affairs. While not in favor of any scheme of borrowing which would increase the burden of interest paynblo by tho Council, it Io poBBiblo that a loan may be obtained at a lower rate of interest thiw C); per cent., which ib ths rato charged for the present iverdraft of £400. If money could be obtained at t per cent., £650 would bo available for the amount jf interest that is now p»id for £-100. Even if £500 was obtaiued at 5 per cent., the Council would have in additioual £100 to work ou and less intereat to pay If a sum of money can be obtained in thia way without increasing the amount of interest, the Council would lie neglecting the intereBta of the iowd by not obtaining it.

Important Municipal Pro posal. The Lane Covo Council aro instigating steps which, if carriod out. will affect many owners of vacant land who negloct to pay their rates to mnnioipalitiea. At a meeting it was proposed, 'That in order to onablo municipalities to recover accumulated arrears of rates owing on vacant land, thia council invites tho opinion of all metropolitan and suburban councils as to the advisability of co-operating to request the Government during tho next session of Parlia ment to amend the Municipalities Act, by inserting therein a clause empowering municipal councils to sell or otherwise dispose of such vacant land upon which rates are owing.' The mover referred to the present evils which councils had to contend with in getting rates. People have been in the habit of buying land without any thought of paying rates on same, while others who have purchased vacant land laugh at the idea of being rated for it.

The Romance of Two Lives. PART II. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 11 February 1898

The Romance of Two Lives. BY GROSVENOR BUNSTER. PART II. ' Luncheon is laid,' laughed his wife ; and pray remember, Horace, that Miss Horrocks is as yet un accustomed to our ways. Let us get off the stage for a short period.' ' Let us play the best play that was ever invented,' cried the jovial actor — ? the play with knife and fork.' With that he proceeded to the end of the room, threw open a door, and bade all enter the 'banqueting room.' A very pretty room it was, taste fully furnished. And if Nellie fell into the error of supposing that cham pagne and claret, raised pie and suet dainties as were set 'before her, were the usual diet for actors, she was not to blame. She learned very soon that it was not so, and that ere that happy period can be reached when luxuries can be enjoyed, a good deal of strug gling and fighting had to be encoun tered. And indeed, even in this case, she readily guessed that the sur roundings attending her introduction to her new friends were exceptional ...
