A BILL TO PROVIDE FOR TREASURY BILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

A BILL TO PROVIDE FOR TREASURY BILLS. is financial matters the country is just where it was when Mr. DIBBS proposed to provide for his then recently-discovered deficit by the issue of Treasury Bills, with thia difference perhaps, that the Opposition of to-day is not as was the Opposi- tion of that day, for a Bill has been permitted to pass the Assembly, to provide for the issue of Treasury Bills to the amount of £2,600,000. and to bear 4 per cent, interest. These Bills are to be redeemable at the rate of £150,000 per annum, commencing at the end of 1890, so that the deficit is hung up for at least 17 years, a course which we take leave to think was, under existing circum- stances, entirely unnecessary. If the money had been actually required by the Loan Fund from which it has been borrowed in the meantime by the Consolidated Revenue Fund, there might have been some excuse for floating Treasury Bills to the extent required. There was no doubt at the time Mr. DIBBS proposed to issue T...

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] WILL THE PROTEST BE WITHDRAWN? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Political and Social Letter. I LFrom our Special Correspondent. J WILL THE PBOTEST BE WITHDRAWN ? AMONGST a section of the clergy and laity of the Church of England, great dissatisfaction is being expressed at the taotics of the Bishop of Goulburn and one or two other N. S. Wales Bishops, ia con- nection with the choosing of Dr. BARBY'S suc- cessor. Two of the three clergymen nominated by the Synod having expressed their inability or unwillingness to accepo the appointment, it would seem thac if the third was willing the honour would be offered to him as a matter of course. Before offering it to him.'it was necessary to get the con- sent of a majority of the Australian Bishops. These were accordingly communicated with, but before the letter written to Dr. WEBBER, the Bishop of Brisbane, had time to reach that person, Dr. THOMAS, SO it is Btated (and the statement has not been denied), c'abled to CANON SMITH that he had been chosen to be the Bishop of Sydney and Primate of Australia....

Telephone Communication.-In reply to an enquiry as to the terms the telephone system would be extended to Grafton, the Superintendent of the Telephone Exchange in Sydney informed Mr. Willans that subscribers pay for cost of erecting lines and for telephone and apparatus. A line when poles are available will cost about us 6d per chain, but when poles require to be elected it is more expensive. Telephones are £9 each, ex- change connections £3 12s 6d. maintenance £5 per annum. The telephone becomes the sub- scriber^ property, and he may sell his right to the line. &c, to another person. £2 10s per annum for each additional mile, or fraction thereof is charged. An Exchange would be established at Grafton, provided 15 subscribers send their names to the Postmaster. Death.-It is with much regret that we record the death of Hugh M'Donald. of Lower Soutgate, near Heliman Island, which happened on Thursday, rather suddenly.

Standard Plans for Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Standard Plans for Sohools. TUE standard plans for public schoolB.and. teachers' residences which the Minister for Public Instruction desired to have prepared for future use in tho department have now been completed. They consist of 15 plans of schools providing for an attendance rang- ing from 30 up to 750 scholars. ThoBe for the tenth to the fourth class inclusive, com- prising ll plans, are completed and ready for issue to contractors, as are also four sets of teachers' residence plans. The plans for the first, second and third class schools are ground plans only, giving .a standard amount of accommodation and the- . best general arrangement. It is not con- sidered wise to get working plans for schools of these classes ready for use, as local cir- cumstances of site, levels, &c, render it impossible to use the same plans for large buildings at every place where they are to- be built. It is intended to issue copies o£ these plans to all the inspectors in various parts of t...

North Coast Railway. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

North Coast Railway.   No. III. A FRUITFUL and much-neglected field for the attention of the faRner is to be found in the culti- vation of Tobacco ; and as there is no place in the colony which in this respect holds ont the prospect of such profitable occupation to the settler as the lands situated on the tract of country east of the Coast range, and extending from the point where the surveyed line crosses it to the fertile locality of CoFf's Harbour, we have in this fact alone a most potent reason for the formation of the railway with a view to its development and encourage- ment. The suitability of the soil and climate for the production of Tobacco on a vast scale and of admirable quality is no matter of mere conjecture, founded on the self-interest or prejudice of the writer, but an ascertained fact, proved by experi- ment at Corinda and at the Moonee, 16 miles further south. In the former case leaves were found to reach the large dimensions of 34 inches in diameter ...

The Shah and His Doings. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

The Shah and His Doings. THE English papers of late dates are very much crowded with reference to the Shah and his doings. The highest people have evidently, and with simple spontaneity of feeling, been doing their best to out-rival the Shah's reception in Bussia. This has arisen purely from the national sentiment with regard to Great Britain's great rival in Asia, and goes far to prove how deep-seated is this feeling against Russian advances, and possibly, how popu- lar would be any effort, on the part of the Imperial Government to keep the Arctic bear in check. The Shah's visit itself, it is said, has very little direct political influence. . " He has always balanced one power against the other, and will continue to do so. He visits the powers to foster that personal amity and good understanding which is so important to him as a personal ruler. Whenever he comes to Europe he learns a good deal, perhaps the English people may learn something : but no new conces- sions will be-made,...

Starved out. Why? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Starved out. Why? SIR.-I live near what is called the coast. Around me are natural resources that should repay the holders a thousandfold ; yet on all sides, I see honest hard-working men and women striving to win their daily bread, and being slowly but surely starved out. For months I've pondered on this strange state of affairs, and marvelled to myself the cause of it. But nowhere can I see an openfng even a faint gleam, which would lead to a solution of the problem. I ask for light? Will someone   less beclouded in these looming mists, or one view- ing from a more distant standpoint, make my ideas clearer, by giving me the wherefore of these things? Questions one or the other come tumbling or jost- ling each other in their eagerness to have vent and answers I cannot find. Still the conditions which gave rise to them remain the same, and show no sign of coming change. I choose but a few of the more urgent, and gladly submit them in the hope that some gentle spirit tak...

Philosophical Society of Great Britain. REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Philosophical Society of Great Britain. BEPOBT. AN immense audience crowded the hall in every part, the President, Sir George Stokes, Hart., President of the Royal Society, took the chair. The report for psat year was read by Captain Petrie, by which it appeared that the number of home, foreign, and Colonial members had increased to over 1300, and there had been an important advance in the practical work of the Institute in investigating the philosophical and scientific questions, especially any questions used by those who unhappily sought to attack religion in the name of science. The adoption of the Teport was moved by Sir Henry Barkly, G.C.B., F.R.S.. and seconded by Admiral Sir Leopold McLintock, F.R.S., after which it was announced that family matters, consequent on the death of his father, prevented Professor Sayce's presence, and he had chosen the Rev. Dr. Wright, author of "The Hittites," to read the Address. It gave an historical description of wliat has become known in reg...

PARLIAMENT. By Telegram. TUESDAY'S SITTING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

PARLIAMENT. By Telegram. TUE»» A r's SITTIX*}. THE Legislative Council further considered the Land Bill in committee and made good progress, resuming at clause 29 and dealing with all the suc- ceeding clauses np to and inclusive of clause 41. Clause 31, defining the terms on which a pastoral lease might be surrendered, was struck out after having been amended, and the question will therefore have to be reconsidered when the bill is recommitted. Clause 33 provided, inter alia, that all Crown lands not held under lease or license and not reserved from lease or license, should be open to annual lease, but on the motion of Mr. DANGAB it was amended so that provision should apply to Crown lands in the eastern division only. Clause 35 was, on the proposition of Mr. Cox, amended by striking out the words limiting a scrub lease to a term not longer than the unexpired term of the pastoral or homestead lease when the scrub land is part of a pastoral or homestead lease. The same clause was fur...

MAIZE PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

MAIZE PLANTING. DÜRING the week the first maize of the season has been planted, bnt as yet a limited area has been sown. The floods delayed operations for fully three weeks, and we will not be surprised to hear of another hindrance to planting proceeding, viz., the caking of the soil from the excessive heat. Last year the early crops were the heaviest raised for many years, but it is not now probable that an equal area will be sown this season. For the next three or four weeks a very large area, however, will be sown, and agricultural operations aie being pushed on with all possible despatch. DAIRYING IN THE KIAMA DISTRICT.-At the tenth half-yearly meeting of the Pioneer Dairying Company, the balance sheet for the six months ending June 30 showed a credit balance of £67, and a total credit to the. company's account of £1421 5s. This is considered a most gratifying result of the five years' work, after paying satis- factory prices . for milk to individual suppliers. The manager calle...

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Casino, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Casino, Tuesday. THE Casino Council last night unanimously adopted a scheme submitted for lighting the town with gas. It is expected that the works will be completed in about eight months. At a representative meeting last night, the fol- lowing resolution was adopted on the motion of Mr. Alderman Crouch, seconded by Mr. Cope-" That in the opinion of this meeting the just claims of this electorate (the population of which now numbers 30,000) to increased postal communication with the metropolis can only be met by a daily mail by the Northern Railway to Tenterfield, thence by coach to Casino and Lismore. That similar concession had been granted to far less important districts without agitation on the part of the inhabitants." The Mayor was requested to forward the resolution to the Postmaster-General, through the members for the district. Sydney, Thursday. THE Commercial Bank has purchased from the Government the old Court-house at Parramatta for £10,500. Th...

Church-Going Witnesses. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889

Church-Going Witnesses. THE mere fact of regular attendance at church, cannot always be taken as evidence of unimpeachable morality. This was de- monstrated at the Metropolitan Quarter Sessions Court last week, when James Snow came up for sentence on a charge of robbing: his employers of £1200. The prisoner asked for lenient treatment, as it was hie> first appearance in any court, Judge Wilkinson, in passing sentence, said the prisoner had received a high character from ' a number of people, including clergymen. His Honor would have been pleased to deal leniently with the prisoner but for certain information he had gleaned in mak- fl- ing inquiries which precluded his taking the- ? - characters into account. It had transpired that not only had Snow robbed his employers of £1200, but he had also defrauded theoT in other ways, and a number of skeleton1, keys were found in his possession. One clergyman said of him that he went regularly to church. That he might have done, but nevert...

Southgate. I THÜBBTiAY. Public Meeting.-A Public meeting was held at Mr. Farrell's hotel on Monday, at 3 p.m. There was a good attendance, but not so good as the business warranted. Unfortunately such things are of frequent occasion here, and with less reason to assign for their absence than the present occa- sion-namely, the backward state of ploughing, ¿co., owing to past unfavorable weather. Many were disappointed at not seeing a fair sprinkling of the Grafton business people. I myself was zatber surprised to see even our genial friend Mr, M. Hush here, when the abominable state of the roads are taken into consideration. We are all aware that Grafton coincides with the object, and the movement will meet with their hearty co- operation. Mr. E. ARNOLD was voted to the chair, and as convener of the meeting read »petition prepared by instructions from the Progress Committee. Mr. Arnold suggested that the petition should be con- sidered clause by clause, as the object of the meet- ing...
