The Kanaka Settlements in North Queensland. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
The Kanaka Settlements in North Queensland. IN the Eockhampton Bulletin of the 2nd | instant some interesting information was given regarding the kanaka settlements at North Eockhampton, reference to which was made by Mr. Groom in the Legislative Assembly when taking part m the sugar industry debate ; he said there were 200 kanakas living in the Bcrub there earning a precarious livelihood. A representative of the Bulletin accompanied by a local clergy- man, visited the settlements the other day, and in concluding his article the writer says:-"The conclusions to which I have been forced are these - that there are certainly not more than a hundred kanakas, men, women, and children, living in the bush there ; that judging by their appear- | anees they are very well off-certainly not in want ; that when they can get work they are industrious; that they pay a good deal of attention to the religious services that are' held for their benefit; and that their removal will be a matter of cons...
THE CLABENCE-STEEET COFFEE PALACE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
THE CLABENCE-STEEET COFFEE PALACE. A WEEK or two ago a large coffee palace in Clar- ence-street that had been in the course of erection for a year cr more, was open with the usual for- malities. It contains several times more sleeping accommodation than any other house in Sydney, and many people thought that it would not receive sufficient patronage to make it a source oE profit to the shareholders. It would seem, however, that those fears were not well founded. Anyway, every room in the great building has been taken, and the probability is that the venture will be enor- mously successful. The lodgers consist chiefly of people employed in the warehouses in the vicinity. The place suits them, for all they are required to do is to pay for their room ; it is optional with them whether they take their meals in the estab- lishment or not. For a single room the charge is 12s a week, and meals are paid for according to the tariff. Thus, while a dinner of several courses would cost half a c...
ANOTHER ARCADE FOR SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
ANOTHER ARCADE FOR STDNOEY. ARCADES aie the order of the day in Sydney. At present there are half a dozen, only three of which, however, are profitable to the owners, and two more are going to be constructed. One of these will run from Pitt-street to Castlereagh-street, and the other from Pitt-street to George-street. The latter should be a remarkably profitable speculation. The Pitt-street entrance to both arcades will be between King-street and Market-street, and it may be expected, therefore, that a constant stream of traffic will pass through them. These arcades are pleasant architectural features of the city. Ia the summertime they are delightfully cool, and for that reason alone are much frequented by the citizens ; and consisting as they do of a great number of shops, they are generally attractive. Like other fads, I suppose the arcade mania will be done to death, and some people will suffer in their pockets in consequence.
Wreck of the Lady of Lorne. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
Wreck of the Lady of Lorne. AK inquiry was held by tue Marine Board last week, into the circumstances attending the loss of the ketch Lady of Lome, .1 vessel of 50 tons register, owned by Messrs. Howland and Sutherland, of the Naiubncca Eiver. Francis Dlacker, the late master, pave evidence to the effect thot the vessel left the Nambnctra Eiver on tlieDth ult., bound to Sydney with a cargo of hardwood. During very heavy weather she drifted in among the Solitary Islands, aud was at times completely submerged, owing to the mountainous seas which broke over her. Ou the morning of the 19th ultimo, she was in dangerous proximity to a rocky point near Moonee Head, and the captain decided that the only conrso left open . for the safety of the crew was to run the vessel ashore. She waa accordingly steered towards the bïach, and in a few minutes was amorg the breakers. The crew were nine hours clinging to the wreck, during which nn able seaman named Alfred Egmont was drowned in his efforts t...
STATE MONEY PAID TO THE WISE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
STATE MOSEY PAID TO THE AVISE FAMILY". THE return dealing with the amount of Govern- ment money paid to the WISE Family, was laid on the table of the House a day or two ago. It is a very instructive document, and shows that the WISE Family has probably bagged more of the public coin than any other family that can be mentioned. The return was asked for in consequ- ence of Mr. Wise's statements in Niacin illari'.t Maga- zine regarding the alleged billet-hunting proclivi- ties of the Irish Catholics. The return does not include Mr. Wise's mother, who haa beena pensioner of the State for many years. "Of all men in the world Mr. WiEe is the last man who should have accused any class of living on the State, but it has been observed that men who have been guilty of certain offences are often the most severe critics of people who commit similar offences. Mr. Wise is a yonng man, and like most young men, he is extremely foolish. He will admit that when twenty more years have passed over his ...
THE LATE ELECTION AT REDFERN. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
THE LATE ELECTION AT REDFERN. THE petition against the return of Mr. SCHEY for Redfern, came to nothing. That is the result I expected and predicted. The petition had nothing to re3t upon. But the gentlemen who got it up thought that as Mr. Schey had got a majority of only 25 votes, and that as there were about CO informal votes, a re-count of the votes might pos- sibly give the free-trader the seat. The assertions about alleged personation, double voting, &c, were mere surplusage, and could never have been inten- ded to be taken seriously. The expenses of the petition, it need hardly be said, were not paid by Free-trade candidate.
THE HUDSON BROTHERS COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
THE HUDSON BEOTHERS COMPANY. THE half-yearly meeting of Hudson Brothers Company was held this week. The directors re ported that instead of the company having made a profit during the past half-year, it had made a loss of several thousands. This result had hap- pened, so they stated, partly in consequence of their having taken some contracts at too low a price, and partly through the general dulnes3 of trade. The business of the company consists of wood and iron manufacturing in general. The senior HUDSON, who I believe is Chairman of the company, is a free-trader, at any rate he professes to believe in free-trade principles. It is avery long time since the Company paid a dividend. A year ago it reduced its capital by many thous- ands, but as the report under notice shows that has not produced a beneficial result. How the Chair- man can remain a free-trader, in face of the fact that his company, which possesses the very bes^ kinds of machinery for manufacturing purposes, is a proble...

Abstract of Sales toy Auction. SATURDAY. ' Hy T. BAWDEN, at his Booms, at 12, Blood Stallion. Electorate Of Wollnmbi.-Residents of Brisbane "Water are holding meetings, and agita- ting for a division of electorate of thc Wollnmbi, which it is alleged is too large for one member, while Wollnmbi has nothing in common with Brisbane Water ; which alone has a roll of over 1600 voters: and the residents contend that not only are they entitled to one member, but that Gosford should be thc place of nomination. We understand under the New Electoral Act, now prepared in the Colonial Secretary's office, to be sub- mitted to Parliament, provision is made to niett the wishes of the petitioners.

ADMINISTRATION OF OUR RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
AD3IINISTBATI0ÍÍ OF OUE RAILWAYS. OK Thursday evening Mr. GOODCHAP made a long statement in the House in reply to the recently published reports by Mr. PBICE-WILLIAMS and Mr. TROW, on the condition of our railways. It was felt here that one object in having these reports prepared, was to have a slap at the late Chief Commissioner. Such at any rate seemed to be Mr. Goodchap's impression. The speech had evidently been carefully prepared, and although it was delivered in a quiet manner, it made a good impression. Everybody knew that the condition of the railways was not so good as it ought to be, but not many of the politicians believed that it was as bad as the two so-called experts described. To Mr. Thow, who is one of Mr. EDDY'S most recent appointments, Mr. Good chap administered some very severe slaps, but they were not nearly so severe as that official deserved. We have not heard the last of this business. Mr. DIBBS has resolved to secure the appointment of a special commission, ...
THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1859.] TUESDAY MORNING, 20TH AUGUST, 1889. GRANTS FOR MAIN ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. I ESTABLISHED 1S59.3_ TUESDAY MORNING, 20TII AUGUST, 18S9. Gil ANTS FOR 2IAIN ROADS. THE question of grants for main roads through Municipalities is a vexed one throughout the country districts. The result is that strenuous efforts are made from time to time with a view of squeezing the State into compliance with Muni- cipal wishes. Those wishes do not always run in the same groove. Kor is the point at issue at all times, and in all places, looked upon in the same light. There are those who think that the entire control of a main road through a Municipality should, in the event of the mileage vote being appropriated to it, be handed over to the Eoads Department. There are others who think that the Government should place the mileage vote at the disposal of the Corporations, leaving to those bodies the responsibility of maintenance, but tying them down to expend the full amount, required or not at tb e time, upon that particular road. Then there is...

Where does our Bain come from? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
Where does our Bain come from? " TEE answer to this question is not," says Mr. Charles Egeson, "I think, popularly known. Last month, for instance, the W. to S. and E. winds deposited nearly the whole of the rain that fell in Australia. This would lead many to infer that the vapour came from the Southern seas. But the evaporation at this time of the year from the oceans south of our latitude is altogether insufficient to cause the rain we generally have. At Sydney the average evaporation for July is not much more than an inch, while we have to account for a rainfall all round our southern coasts of from 2 to 4, and in places 5 to 6 inches, on the average, as shown on the climatological charts I have drawn. The greatest part of the rain that falls here in July is raised as vapor by the tropical heat over the Bay of Bengal and North Indian Ocean. Brought to the equator by N.E. winds, it ascends off the east coast of Africa, crosses Australia as an _i_j XT w _Í._j j_3_^_ overhead N. W....
THE OPPOSITION KEEPING UP A WORRYING PROCESS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
THE OPPOSITION/ KEEPING UP A WORRYING PROCESS. THE division has had an extraordinary effect on the Opposition ; it gave them great encouragement, and they immediately resolved to continue their attacks on the Ministry, until the latter were deposed from power. They will probably keep up a worrying process until the Land Bill has gone through the Upper House and received the GOVER- NOR'S signature, and then they will make one or more combined efforts to send their adversaries to the right about. It seems to me, that if they adhere to this plan they niubt accomplish their purpose, for it is impossible for the Government to keep their whole force in the House every day, and if at any time only a dozen of their supporters are absent and not within easy call, they will be able to carry what will amount to a vote of want of confidence. The discussion on the Estimates will provide numerous opportunities of practising such a tactic. At any time, therefore, your readers may expect to hear th...
Sporting. The Sullivan-Kilrain Fight. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
Sporting. The Sullivan-Kilrain Fight. THIS affiair, which was witnessed by 3000 persons I at Richburg, New Orleans, lasted two hours and a 1 quarter, and 75 rounds were fought. It seems to , have been a brutal affair all through. Sullivan knocked Kilrain down in an early round, and after this the latter frequently went down to escape punishment. In the 45th round Sullivan stamped on Kilrain, who was prostrate. Cries of " foul " were raised, but the claim was not allowed. When the 75th round had been fought Kilrain's second threw up the sponge, and Eilrain was carried out of the ring in a very exhausted condition, and had his wounds dressed. Sullivan was declared to be the victor, amid great cheering. During the pro- gress of the fight he showed immense superiority to Kilrain, who refused to give in even when his chances were at the lowest ebb. Sullivan was not knocked down once throughout the fight, while he managed to fell his opponent over a score of times. Soon after the combatan...
NARROW ESCAPE OF THE MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
NARROW ESCAPE OF THE MINISTRY. THE Government,; whip" Mr. TEECE, got a terrible wigging for not having the members of the party I within call at the time the division was taken, and doubtless, he deserved what he got, for it was known in the afternoon that the Opposition were going to make a fight, and therefore, he should have had the supporters of the Government fully prepared for any contingency that might happen. It may be expected that for the next few days he will be unusually active, and will not be caught napping during that time. The narrow escape of the Ministry had the effect of bringing Mr. M'MIL LA.N to his senses, for on Thursday the PKEMIEB announced that the Treasurer would deliver a financial statement on Tuesday next. This must have been as gall and wormwood to Mr. M'MILLA.N. who is a consequential little gentleman, and does not like eating humble pie. Just before the fight in the Assembly came off, Mr. CARRUTHERS had told the people in the Mudgee district, that wh...

FRAUDS ON DIXSON'S CONQUEROR TOBACCO. Some unprincipled retailers of Tobacco are placing the Conqueror tin-tags upon Tobacco, and disposing of same as the genuine article. Now the public are therefore cautioned against this deception, and are at the Eame time respectively invited to submit any doubtful purchases to Dixson and Sons, who offer a substantial reward for convincing evidence against the aforesaid offenders.-Conqueror Tobacco Works, Hyde Park.-ADV. Victorian Government urged to put a substantial duty on eggs. The Premier says he would be sorry to have colleagues who could not think for themselves. Premier Parkes said that the Payment of Members Bill is to' remunerate the Opposition. From this we ^Star) conclude that the Government party remunerate themselves. A coin, one side 6d the other half-sov, is the latest counterfeit in Sydney. It is probable that there will shortly be another big election- in Central Cumberland. Rumor has it that Mr. Frank Farnell is not unlikely t...
Expenditure in Sydney and Country Towns. Discussion in Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889
Expenditure in Sydney and Country Towns. Discussion in Parliament. j IN the Legislative Assembly on "Wednesday, ; Mr. ALEX. BBOWN moved the adjourn- ment of the House, to call attention to neglect of the Government to attend to the wants of the country districts as compared with the expenditure in the city, and urged country members to insist upon a complete Local Government Bill being introduced as one of the first measures next session. Mr. SEE said this was a most important question, and he was sorry that the House did not pay more attention to the matter. He contended that the construction of rail- ways benefited Sydney as much as the coun- try districts through which they passed, by bringing an enormous trade to the metro- polis ; and instances had been given where the construction of a railway had acted detrimentally to the town through which it passed. He was always in favor of the con- struction of railways, but having them con- structed, they should direct attention to maki...
