THE PROSPECTS OF FREETRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 17 January 1896
THE PROSPECTS OF FREETRADE. It is said (writes a Sydoe? correspon dent) that the Opposition is about to enter upon a Protectionist propaganda Mr. Lyne, who 13 determined not to be a leader in name only, U ' billed' for the west, and to audiences at Orange, Dubbo. and other parts he is soon to appear, and demonstrate the absolute trustfulness of a policy of free trade. Ab he is one of the very few men in tho ranks of his party who believe in Protection pure and simple — the others have taken ib on as a means of obtaining votes — be is to be respected though one may disagree with him. He, however, must be content to remain out of office for two ort'irce years. His time will come, and I am afraid that its coming wi 1 be aided by free traders themselves. They will soon be sick and tired of the direcb taxation which has been initiated.

KILLED BY A SHARK. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 17 January 1896
KILLED BY A SIURK. On Saturday afternoon five young boys, oblivious of the danger incurred in open harbor bathing, went for a swim in John* son's Bay, at Pyrmont, within a stone's throw of the Pyrmont Baths. The bathers dived off the wharf, and splashed about in the water, when a man named Alfred Johnson, who waa watching the boys, suddenly observed the fin and tail of a large shark, which was swimming towards the bathers. The monster dashed past one boy and seized Wm. Reddie, aged 11 years. So near did it go to the other bather that its tail actually struck him as it seized Reddie. Regardless of personal danger Johnson bravely plunged into the water with bis clothes on and waded out until he reached Reddio. The poor lad was unable to speak, but feebly stretched out Ii3 band in suiplicafon. Johnston immediately clasped hitn by the hand, only to find that the shark still retained its hold. A second effort to drag the boy away was successful, and Johnson brought him to the shore. It w...

Walsh as best ni.in, and the bride was given away by her father. After the interesting ceremony the happy couple were driven to the residence of tbe bride's parents, where a sumptuous breakfast was ...
FIRE IN A MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 17 January 1896
FIRE IN A MINE. The fire which broke out on Saturday morning at Mr. Laneeh'a Comet mine, Redm Hill, proved to be a most destruc tive one, the winding and air-compresing plants being destroyed. The machinery was only completed a few months ago, and was one of tbe most complete plants in the district. Although Mr. Lansell is insured for a fair amount his loss in directly will be considerable, as t;.ere U an exceneive run of gold-boaring leaders (with spurs intermixed) to work in this mine. This has been proved for a height of 110ft. and awidth of 70ft. The output was a larg.i one, about 70!) tons per fortnight, with only one shift of men employed breaking ston'. The destruc tion of tho hauling plant will throw over 80 men out of work, and this will be doubly bard on them, as there was a nine weeks' spell of idleness at the mine some months ago whilst Mr. Lansell and the Mining .Department were in dispute con cerning the price of water. The fire broke out in the store-room, and a long ...

INTERCOLONIAL ITEMS. THE UNEMPLOYED. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 17 January 1896
INTERCOLONIAL ITEMS. THE UNEMPLOYED. A meeting of the unemployed was held at the Queen's Statue, Sydney, a few days since. There waa an attendance of about 150. One speaker who addressed the meeting declared that the deviation works at Loeksley, which the Minister bad announced would be ready to com . mence in a few days, and which it was ? expected -would absorb between 800 and 1000 men, wou'd only keep the men in ' tucker ' and in necessary clothes — nothing more — during the time that they were working on the job if it were con . ducted on the intermittent system ; that was to say, if the men had to work one week in every two That, he declared, bad been a failure at Shea's Creek, where the interval, though much longer, gave a very good idea of how the system would workunder the most favourable conditions. That sort of work would never solve th9 ?unemployed problem; nor would any system of public works, however necessary, be of any use in the solution of the diffi culty, because, ...

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 17 January 1896
FLOTSAM AMD JETSAM. : ?''' ?'?; (By H.N.T.) .? ' Speak naught but kindly.' That ever-recurring bone of contention — ? the noxious weeds question — is still very much in evidence. It is really shameful the way these vegetable scourges are al lowed (in the very heart of the town, too) to grow and luxuriate. One has only to walk down Wilson, Olive, or down the principal part of Townsend-street, to see same splendid plantations of that noxious weed, yclept the 'dock,' or what is popularly known as 'wild rhubarb ' — very *' wild ' indeed. I have ivhiled away many an hoar, in days gone by, trying to eradi cate the brute, but with very little per manent success. If it were only sugar beet now, what a nice little nucleus of a fortune the owners would have. Bat weeds grow apace3 and notwithstanding the notices in the local papers over the magic signature of 'John H. Paine, Council Clerk,' the Scotch thistle (my particular 'bete noil'), Bathnrsfc burr, dock, et hoc genus omne, continue to flo...
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. TUESDAY, January 14. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 17 January 1896
OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. ?o ? Tuesday, January 14. Parliament will re-assemble to-day, and although the Ministry hope and expects to close the session within three weeks, there ia enough business before hon. members to keep them em. ployed for several three weeks. The committee appointed b? the Upper House to report on the Factories Bill has yet to meet, and then the Council must go through and atcend the bill. That House has besides this other important business to attend to. In the Assembly, besides the Bailway Bill, there are eight other measures of more or less importance to be considered. Most of these have not yet reached the second reading stage. It is of course absolutely impossible that the whole of this work can be properly debated in three weeks, the Government are much divided ia opinion about the Bailway Bill. The Premier would be glad to alter it so as to please the labor corner, well knowing that if the bill thus altered passed the Assembly, it would be promptly thrown o...
