The Federal Future. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 10 November 1899

The Federal Future. ALTHOUGH the first elections for tho Federal Parliament are rapidly coming within the range of political, vision no effort has yet been made to lay before the people a pro- ' gramme of policy on the part of any newspaper on political organisation. This is to be regretted because the questions that will be put before the electors will be mostly new and ^ require therefore long and earnest consideration on the part of tho people, certainly an effort bas.beea ; made in two or more quarters to forecast the political tariff, but as this is purely a matter of guesswork \ on the part of the authors, little confidence can be placed in the der durions. An effort ie to be made, it appears, to revive the old " Free trade-Protection " cry which sq¡, effectually divided, the people or this country into two hostile camps in tho days of our minority. It jf elena: however-, that iFreetrode, Ija^i.. we know it in this colony will be unknown from the financial necea- " sities of t...

JDEMAÍÍD FOR AUSTRALIAN PEODUOE. Owing to the trouble in South Africa, Australia, on account of her proximity, is being relied on for supplies of forage, meats, and other articles in daily consumption by a .well-equipped force, and some con siderable orders have been re ceived in Melbourne and ¡Sydney. Storage especially has been the medium of demand, and arrange ments have been completed for space in vessels to sail shortly for over 2,500 tons. For frozen meats some orders have been received, while tinned meats of all kinds, in cluding rabbits, have had inquiry. In wheat and flour there is a feel ing anioog holders that there will lie a demand. For sovereigns there has been considerable inquiry principally on account of tb« Im perial authorities, and many of the bunks have already shipped some bullion. How is it that so little barley is sown iu the district ? Victoria grows ten times more than N.S NV. and JS.Z. five. Surely farmers ought by this time to have had enough ?and to spar...

FROM OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 10 November 1899

FROM OUR EXCHANGES It is said that our htte Premier-is making his crumbe at the Bar, and, in fact, would clear £5000 a year were his legal knowledge equal to his oratorical powers. Why, then, in the name of the ' root of all evil, ' doesn't Mr. Beid take unto himself a partner to tackle the dry-as-dust part of the business??MudgeePost. The trains in Spain are certainly ; (says an exchange) the slowest in all creation. A rate of 10 or 12 , miles an hour is considered a good ; average speed for everyday tra vellers. When the Spanish officials wish to show visiting foreigners what they really can accomplish in the way of rapidity, they order ex press trains, which dash across the landscape at an average rate of 15 to 18 miles an hour.. The Wind sor line is therefore not the only one in the world on which fast trains run. * Some of the Government experts possess more salary than common j sense, there are no two ways about about that.

A Hawkesbury Yarn. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 10 November 1899

A Hawkesbury Yarn. . PAKT I. When John Beid, after a deeent interval of widowerhood, began to be much .about what we will call here Waring's farm, the neighbours thought ho might have done better for. himself. A few remembered that he had been 'after' Alice Waring, as they crudely expressed it, before he married his first wife; but even they wondered that he should return to his old allegiance. ¿ Things were different with him now. He had prospered and be come well-to-do. There was hardly a girl in the parish who would not have jumped at the chance of being mistress of the Hall Farm. As foi Alice - well, they guessed she wouldn't see thirty again, nor have a penny to bless herself with, either; and if she ever had any good looks, they liad been worked out of her long since. She was a slender, fragile-look ing young woman, with large brown eyes, and a pale, oval face, stamped with that pathetically patient expression which grows on tiie faces of women who are blest with irresponsible...
