A Public Denial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

A Public Denial. SIR.-My attention has been drawn to a communica- tion from the Postmaster-General lately published in your columns, in which he states that the Inspector of Post Offices has " noticed very little improvement anywhere on the road between Fern- mount and South Grafton during the last 14 years." Now, Sir, as this statement, if allowed to pass, uncontradicted, might be the means of doing Cof'fs Harbour and other coast settlements a great deal of injury, I desire space to give it a public denial, and to emphatically protest against the falsehood and gross misrepresentation which it contains. Four- teen years ago Coff's Harbour was unoccupied, save by a few scattered cedar cutters, and the settlements of Corinda and Woolgoolga were a howling and dismal wilderness. Moreover, there was no mail service at that time along the coast, nor for many years afterwards. The " visits" of the Inspector must, therefore, have been entirely of an imaginary character, and I am of opinion ...

Echoes and Opinions. RAILWAY AND HARBOUR LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Echoes and Opinions. RAILWAY AND HARBOUR LEAGUE THE annual meeting of the Railway and Harbour League members to be held to-morrow is an event of more than ordinary importance. The League has, as at present constituted, been now in existence a year. Dur'mg that year a large amount of valuable work has been done ; but still in the light of recent events, very much more remains still to be done. In the establishment of the League originally, the conception was that it should become as far as prac- ticable a body represenative of the public interests of the whole district, as comprised within the scope of its title Harbour Improvement and Railway con- struction. Of course, to be fully representative the League must draw its members from all points and all classes, and to ensure this it must be widely and liberally supported in its work and objects. There is an impression that it would have been better had the League's duties embraced other matters more of a local character connected wit...

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Lismore, Monday night. AT a meeting; held here on Saturday to start a bacon curing establishment. 2000 shares of £1 each were applied for. The weather at one time to day was very threatening, but looks now as if it would keep fine. Sydney, Monday. ADMIRAL FAIRFAX, on visiting the Wolverine, said of the officers and men as a body in N.S.W. he was extremely proud. The residents of Arowra protest that the termin- ation of the extension of the Kiama railway is to be on a private estate instead of bringing it into the town, and that it is opposed to public interests. Mr. John M'Ivor, teacher of the Maitland Grammar School, was drowned in a swamp, on Saturday whilst endeavouring to recover some game he had shot. He had arrived from England only 12 months, and was aged 26. Thos.

Strange Inconsistencies. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Strange Inconsistencies. ¡ WHAT strange inconsistencies are to be found in the discussion of public questions. Especially is ,this to be noted in respect to questions of a some- what parallel character, wherever there is in the one personal interest, and in the other none. A striking case in point is to be found in one of our metropolitan contemporaries in respect to the rail- way qnestion on the south side, and the north Bide of Port Jackson. From the Central Station at Redfern it is proposed to convey the goods traffic to Darling Harbour. There is a tram service for pas- sengers into the city. This arrangement does not satisfy our contemporary. It advocates an exten- sion of the railway proper through the city to the Circnlar Quay for passenger purposes, contending that the tram service is insufficient for the purpose. Well, there is a railway on the North side. The Government propose to extend it to the waters edge at nilson's Point, for passengers and goods. This is certainly no...

Does Germany need Colonies? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Does Germany need Colonies ? THE well-known author of "Bedarf Deutchs land Colonien ?" " Does Germany Need. Colonies?" Herr Dr. Fabri, has recently been in communication with Prince Bis- marck on the subject of colonisation, and the Chancellor has again taken occasion to express his inability to forward colonising enterprises to any great extent while the Reichstag maintains its reluctance to vote money for such purposes. Dr. Fabri him- self, in his new pamphlet " Five years of German Colonial Policy," rather crisply reviews the progress which has already been made in this direction, the keynote of his criticism being found in his opening sen- tences:-"Our German colonial policy is manifestly passing through a severe crisis. Just as during the last few years the enthusiasm for a colonial policy was so great, so to-day it is regarded by the people with misgiving. ' If we had only left these matters alone !' say not a few, and perhaps the number of those is still greater "who think so...

The Richmond River Mails. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

The Richmond River Mails. DURING the early part of this month the mails to and from the Richmond River districts were greatly delayed, owing to the flooded state of the country and heavy weather generally. A daily mail by way of Tenterfield and Tabulam, which it was said would be of great advantage, was strongly urged. The Postmaster-General having made inquiry into the matter found that every step had been taken to have the mails forwarded as speedily as possible, special expenditure for sending them on being incurred, and in some cases boats were used along the usual coach roads. The local postmasters were asked if the mails could have been carried by the Tenterfield-Tabulam route during the bad weather with greater regularity than by the route used, via Chatsworth. The replies were as follow: — The Postmaster at Tenterfield stated: "I do not think the mails could have been carried with any greater regularity if sent via Tenterfield in the manner described. The river at Tabulam wa...

Lawrence. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 20 August 1889

Lawrence. MONDAY. Bather Invigorating.-If the result of a public meeting can be taken as an index of what is likely to follow, there is some hope of improvement in the management of our public affairs. Wednes- day night's gathering has clearly demonstrated the fact that a majority of the residents who attended came with an honest desire to try and see the dis- trict benefitted. It is'my opinion, and I believeit is the opinions of all right-thinking men, that the best thing that could be done was done. What I cannot understand is that any section of men endowed with reason, and one single atom of honour, could consistently propose to re-establish a concern vjion ¿he very selfsame lasis which they had previously so vnmistaheahly denounced as had. Mr. Shields was quite right without a doubt, and quite justified in saying that if thiB course had been adopted, " We would all have been looked upon as a lot of poltroons, and a disgrace to the world." I have not at all times agreed with Mr....

' The Bight-oar Contest. THIS event took p'ace on the Parramatta on Satur- day, and drew a large crowd, three steamers fol- lowing the race, in which great interest was evinced. The chances of the Mercantile, Sydney, and East Sydney eights were most favoured. The crews got away to a fairly good start, all going off at a fast pace, and at the mile beacon the Glebes were leading East Sydney by a length, Sydney a similar distance away, then the Meres., the Univer- sity bringing up the rear. Glebe led by two lengths at Putney, Sydney, Mercantile, Ea9t Sydney, and University following in order. Off Tennyson the Mercs, commenced to draw on the leaders, and at Cabbaiita led by a quarter length, which was in- creased on the way to Gladesville, but the Glebes were rowing in good style.

The Arrest of Sullivan. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

The Arrest of Sullivan. A TELEGBAM to the London papers dated July ll states that Sullivan, the pugilist, was arrested at Nashville. Tennessee, where he arrived on his way north. The arrest was made by order of the Governor of Mississippi, the State in which the recent fight occurred. The police entered the railway carriage, and seizing Sullivan endeavoured to handcuff him. Sullivan resisted, and Mike Muldoon, the friend of Sullivan, who occupied the same seat, put his head out of the window and cried to the crowd, "Gentlemen, I demand American protection.". His patriotic appeal was greeted with a variety of responses. Some cheered Sullivan and begged him to knock the " coppers " out : otherB cried, " Hurrah for the Nashville police," ?'Hit him with your club," and so on. After a brief struggle Sullivan was taken from the carriage and hustled into a cab. In the souffle he drew back to knock down a policeman, when the chief of the police held a revolver in his face and told him if he...
