WILHERFORCE. (TO THE EDITOR. i Sir,-It is painfully evident, that we are threat ened with a severe, and, it may be a protracted drought. The farmers' outlook at present, on the ' Hawkesbury at least, is of the most gloomy ! character. They are looking at the matter almost ! in despair, and folding their hands awaiting the course of events. At the same time, the remedy, and an efficient one too, is within their reach. Xet them use the remedy l'ro\id( nc has placed witliiij ' their reach, and the results are certain. The river and the using of its waters for irrigation will cause to spring forth luxuriant fields of maizennd lucerne, I and, what wo cannot boast of now, unless what ' John Chinaman furnishes us with, a variety of wholesome vegetables. The hard working farmers place their savings in the savings bank that they may add to the principle the five per cent, per | annum, whilst at the same time they are only get ting half crops off their farms for the want of rain j or irrigati...

WHAT A LAND TAX MEANS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 10 November 1888

WHAT A LAND TA3t MEANS. toothing but ignorance of the true meaning of land taxatidrt prevents"the people from demanding it in one voice. As the Queensland Boomerang says, " It is still thought by some that land-tax advocates want to tax improvements, and that their proposal would thus press heavily upon the energy and industry of those who bought land to use and used it. This isn't so, The land tax would apply to the bare, ilnimproved value, and all improvements would GO SCOT I-'KKE. That value which any individual man made by his business ability or by his hard labor would be his. It would not be taxed, as it should not be taxed. The harder he worked the more he would have; the State would no longer stand by like a high way robber to tithe his industry while it let the land-grab bing drone go free. The tax would fall only upon the value made by the community generally, only upon tneenchanced value ol the bare land caused by the increasing demand there fore made by the pressure'of p...

TOPICS THE DAY [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 10 November 1888

TOPICS THE DAY - Listen to me, and if you speak me fair I'll tell you news, indiflerent good to eh her. On6 of the numerous strange vagaries indulged in by the postal department has just been brought under 'our notice It appears that though there is a mail to Sydney, Parramatta, Blacktowrt, and other places by way of the Richmond Line each morning, no mail is dropped at Riverstone, the most populous and important centre between Windsor and Parramatta. We would like to know, with others, why this is so. If a business man writes to Riverstone, and posts his letter here ?at night, ft is not despatched to its destination .until the 4 o'clock train leaves here on the follow ing afterftdon. The reason for this rather eccen tric course df procedure is not apparent, for we fail t6 see when mails are made up for the various settlements along the !me, why Riverstone, of all others, should be left out in the cold. The mat ter needs a little investigation, and the sooner a change is effected, w...

Do 3*ou know, I saw Lord Allison the other day when we were talking to Nina Belville, and he said that he did not believe Leslie D'Eyncourt was away from England. He said he had heard he was awfully clever, and had gone in for some new invention or contrivance, all wheels and springs, and that he was going to startle the world with his dis covery.

LAND NATIONALIZATION. [TO THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 10 November 1888

LAND NATIONALIZATION. [TO THE EI) I TO U.J Siu,-1 observe thnt some writers in your valu able paper, advocate Henry George's doctrine of " Land Nationalization," which means simply confiscation, and that no man is to own any land, but all is lor ever to be property of the Crown. Let me request those persons to ponder over the speech of our able premier, Sir Henry Parkes, in the Legislative Assembly on this subject, and on Tuesday evening last, and reported in the Hekold of the following dav, in the hope that they will be disillusioned over so absurd, impracticable, and never-to-be-realised a dream. In answer to Mr. T. Walker, the spiritualistic, free-thinking member, Sir Henry said : .'A gentleman opposite said,' I am a faithful disciple of Henry tiiorgc.' \W1. thai lientleman must adopt all the 'wild, nutio is of Henry Gcui'w upon dm subject of free frade, becaus.

CORRESPONDENCE. WINDSOR SCHOOL OF ARTS. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 10 November 1888

CORRESPONDENCE. WINDSOR SCHOOL OF ARTS. (TO THE EDITOR.) SIR,-In a recent issue ot your paper you have an article condemnatory of the present state of this institution, and though perfectly agreeing with you that both the building and its contents are not by a long way what they should be in a town like Windsor, I think the gentlemen forming the committee of management should have the sympathy of the institution's few subscribers, instead of censure, for this position of aftairs. The public in tiie district take no interest in it whatever, and even in the town only two per cent, of the population give it their support. Under these circumstances, can anything else be expected but that our mis-named School of Arts should be tottering on the verge of insolvency. I find that those most ready to reproach the committee for the present state of things are those non-pro gressive spirits in Windsor (of which, I regret to say, there are by far too many), who have never contributed a penny pie...

AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 10 November 1888

AQUATICS. The race which was to have beeil rowed between John Ford arid Herbert Atkins on Saturday last lapsed. It appears that the Atkins ^arty had pro cured a new skiff from Sydney, th6 craft weighing considerably less than that proposed to be used by tord. Ford's backers, on Friday night last, when the balance of the stakes was to have been put up at the Fitzroy Hotel, refused to consent to Atkins rowing in this boat. A large crowd assem bled at the hotel, and the Atkins party made a proposition to the effect that if Ford allowed their mart to row in the new boatori the Saturday, they would make a second match for £25 a-side, and allow Ford to use the boat then. No Agree ment could be arrived at, however, and nego tiations wei*6 broken off. At this time Mr. Gough held the whole of the Atkin's stake and £ro of Ford's. On Saturday it was arranged that a match for £25 should be rowed on the following (last) Monday, Atkins to use the strange boat, and that a second match should take ...
