CAPTURE OF A BURGLAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 21 February 1894
CAPTURE OF A BURGLAR. AT 5.20 a.m. on Sunday last Sergeant Carberry, of the No. 1 Police, was dressing at his residence, 12 Francis-street, pre- paratory to turning out for early duty, when his observations through a street window led a few moments later to the capture of a burglar red-handed. He noticed a man tampering with a ground floor window on the opposite side of the street in a boarding-house, No. 7, occupied by Mrs. Mary Costello. The man forced the window, threw up the sash, then gently pinned the blind up while he got through the aperture. Having seen this much the sergeant hastily donned his clothes and ran across the street. He followed his man through the window, but could find so trace of him. The people in the house were alarmed, and after a short search the burglar was found secreted under a bed on the top floor. The sergeant at once recognised him as a man well known to the police, who has already served a long sen- tence for burglary, from which he was only recent...
LAND TAX. To the Editor of the WARREN HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 21 February 1894
LAND TAX. To the Editor of the WARREN HERALD. SIR, - My attention has been drawn to some remarks in your issue of 3rd instant, re my views on land taxation. I have certainly always held that the FAIREST mode of land taxation would be only to levy on the present unimproved value of the land, less the amount already paid to the Crown for it, but I also maintained that sooner than see no land tax at all, I would be in favour of a moderate tax on the whole of the unim- proved value. I hold that land should bear its fair proportion of taxation, though I am not in favour of single tax, nor yet of weighting land with such a burden of taxation as will lessen production instead of stimulating it. Because many people at the present time take extreme views on this subject, it is, to my mind, no reason for not advocating it as far as one considers it just and equitable. -Yours faithfully, W. C. A'BECKETT Wellington, February 13, 1894.

Starvation on Cornwallis Island. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 21 February 1894
Starvation on Cornwallis Island. THE Queensland Principal Under Secretary has received a tele- gram, dated February 14, from the Hon. John Douglas, Govern- ment Resident at Thursday Island, intimating that the London Missionary Society's lugger Mary came into port on Wednesday with news that she had taken several teachers and their families from Dowan, &nbsp; Cornwallis Island, to Mawbiag, Jervis Island, they having been sick of fever at Laumbarg.

Open Column. THE STATE AND THE LAND. (To the Editor of the LIBERAL.) [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 21 February 1894
Open Column, [Correspondence is invited no matters of loud interest. It must be distinctly under- stood that we are not responsible for the views expressed in letterd under this heading] THE STATE AND THE LAND. (To the Editor of the LIBERAL.) SIR, - The necessity for more efficient land legislation is daily becoming more apparent, and there can be no doubt that with a proper system of dealing with the unalienated lands of the colony much of the existing distress would speedily disappear. The principal object of land legislation should be to --oure the utilisation of the land by settlement or otherwise. That land settle- ment should be encouraged is a point on which there can be no dispute ; but what form should that enoouragtment assume? There is a right-way and a wrong way of &nbsp; doing things. Judging from certain recent utterances, there are some people who would persuade us that the Department of Lands should be worked on similar lines to benevolent asylums and other c...
THE DUBBO LIBERAL AND MACQUARIE ADVOCATE. Wednesday, February 21, 1894. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 21 February 1894
THE DUBBO LIBERAL AND MACQUARIE ADVOCATE. Wednesday, FEBRUARY 21, 1894. AS announced in our issue of Saturday, Alderman N. Muller has been elected Mayor of Dubbo for the current year, this being the fourth occasion on which he has occupied the civic chair. It was anticipated that Alderman Soane, the re- tiring Mayor, would have been re-elected, as he had not con- cluded a full term of office, but had only filled the gap caused by the retirement, through ill health, of Alderman Nancarrow, in October last ; and as the alderman who nominated him &nbsp; said, it would have been an act of grace on the part of the Council to re-elect him for a full term. But at the last moment, Alderman Muller, yielding to the pressure of his friends, allowed himself to be nominated, with the result that he was elected by four votes to two, the then Mayor not voting, and two aldermen being absent. There is no doubt that had Alderman Muller intimated his wish to be Mayor, he would have been elected...

PEAK HILL MINING (From the TIMES). Crown of Peak Hill. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 21 February 1894
PEAK HILL MINING (From the TIMES). Crown of Peak Hill. Mssers. Mathey and Walker, tributors, have made a discovery on the Crown of Peak Hill. It is rather premature to say much about it as yet, but the lode is two feet in width and can be traced for about 20ft. Good prospects have been obtained, but, &nbsp; &nbsp; sufficient work has not been done to enable us to give a reliable report. Burra Burra. Since last report the prospectors have wanted 42 loads for 38oz., and have two more machines to put through. No. I. South washed 14 loads for loz 13dwt 20grsn. W. Good and party, west of the prospectors, have got out a machine of dirt to try. It appears the party that previously held this claim left the gold behind them, as I he present holders obtained good prospects from their mullock heap. There are some men working the surface close by, and hey are getting dirt to puddle. They get nice little specimens, and it is thought that there is a reef somewhere near. Barton and...
CRICKET. SCHOOL CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate — 21 February 1894
CRICKET. SCHOOL CRICKET MATCH THE Dubbo Public School Cricket Club accompanied by about a dozen juvenile supporters, journeyed to Wellington on Saturday to try conclusions with the Wellington lads. The visitors won in one innings and 34 runs. M. Soane played a fine dashing innings for 45, and Neil Hives contributed a very useful 12 by neat careful cricket. Wellington made a poor stand in the first innings, the last wicket falling for 17 runs ; they were more successful in the second. Kelly played nicely for 15, not out. The success of the visiting team was due in a great measure to the bowling of E. Raper and R. M'Donald. The return match will probably be played in three weeks' time. Appended are the scores : - Dubbo P.S.C.C. M. Soane, run out ... ... ... ... 45 G. Elliott, c Starr, b Hughes ... 8 R. M'Donald, b Hughes ... ... ... 0 E. Raper, b Gardiner ... ... ... ...3 N.
