WEDNESDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
WEItatJESDAY'S SITTINGS. THE Council was occupied with the Land Bill, discussing the 42nd and 43rd clauses. The latter waa amended by giving the Land Board power to fix what further improvements were necessary to entitle the lessee to an extension of his lease. This was carried by 20 to 6. The Herald alleges that Mr. Brunker will not accept this amendment, it being opposed to the spirit of the clause, which provided that improve- ments should be made during the currency, and not at the close of the lease, and that the country would have to bear the cost of the Land Board : having to make two reports. In the Assembly, Mr. BRUCE SMITH in reply ' to Mr. Nicoll, said that he could not definitely state I when dredging operations would be commenc d on the Tweed. Sand pumps would arrive from Eng- land in about three months, and if found suitable, it would then be determined when the Tweed would be operated upon. A survey of the river is already in existence. Mr. BRUNKER, in reply to Dr. Ro...

Harwood Island. TUESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Harwood Island. TUESDAY. ACCIDENT,-A rather serious accident occurred yesterday to the machinery in the Harwood mill, through the flange of one of the rollers breaking. Eepairs are to be affected at Harwood, and as it is rather a difficult job it will probably be a week before it is ready for work.

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THURSDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THURSDAY EVENING. Explanation. - Your last issue contains a letter from Mr. A. ROBS, relative to a case which came on at the last District Court. According to ¿he plaint-book the cause of action was "dis- honored p.n.," and as the case was Btrnck out by the Judge without the facts being made known, it was hardly to be expected that the particulars (which were only known to those concerned in the action) would be published in my report of the case. In justice to Mr. Ross, however, it is only fair that the true state of affairs should be made public, and the letter referred to proves conclu- sively that he was perfectly blameless in the matter.- My only regret is that I should, inad- vertently, have been the cause of placing him in the false position of which he complains. Wesleyan.-At the present time special efforts are being made in the interests of the Wesleyan Church, on the Lower Clarence. The Building Committee, in connection with the proposed new churc...

Skating Obstacle Race. THBBK was a good 'attendance at the Rink on Thursday evening to witness the obstacle race on skates. Such a competition was a novelty here, and created considerable amusement for .the on- lookers.

The obstacles were passing through bárrele, over a hurdle, under a bar, ascend- ing an 18 inch hurdle by a plank, which tilting when the skater reached the top, enabled him to pass 'down the opposite side; The latter was a difficult obstacle to surmount, and was a fruitful source of spills. The barrel obstacle occasioned the greatest loss of time. Appended is the result of the competition First division-Knowles (allowed 2 obstacles), first ; E. W. Coombe (2). The latter retired at the third lap. Second division-R. Vowell, scratch, first ; "W. Moyes (4). second. The latter was caught in two laps, and Vowell won easily. Third division-R.
