Ulmarra. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
Ulmarra. I MONDAY. Butter Factory.-A meeting in connection with thia movement waa held on Saturday, to consider the question of a suitable site for the factory. Mr. W. Taylor's ofter bf G acres, cn the ridge, at £2 per acre, 21 years' lease, with right to purchase, was accepted. It waa also decidedto immediately Bend out prospectuses and application forms for shares, not only about the Ulmarra district ; but also about Grafton and the rest of the river. This movement, for some time delayed owing to rains and flood causes, has at length safely reached a definite stage, and may now be looked upon as almost matured. It is one that will much benefit the place, opening np, as it must, very largely, a new and important industry. Much yet depends, however, on the energy of those connected directly with the movement in working np the placing of the shares ; and it is therefore to be hoped that no efforts will be spared in securing prompt applications for the requisite number, both on the pa...

A Glimose of the Cloven Foot. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
A ñiimnae of the Cloven Foot. I - No. II. I _ BY " COBHÎDA." HB. BUCKNEIÍL'S third charge against the selectors is that they harass and oppress the great producing interests of the colony and employers of labor-the pastoralists. The absurdity of this charge is amply demon- strated by the fact that a large proportion of the selecting class, particularly in the part of the country that Mr» Bucknell hails from, is pastoral- ists. The only difference between them and the -squatter being that they grow their beef for mutton, "and wool on land, which they have honestly acquired and paid for ; instead of on a monopolised Tast extent of the country's public estate, held for a nominal rent. This cry of " harrassing " and "oppressing" the poor squatter is so stale, that ^nothing but. a state of real mental obfuscation, rrindnced by the ferocity of ' his prejudices, could ;îfcave induced Mr. Bucknell to put it forward. The ' people of the centres of large population in the . cities who were, a...
Municipal Association Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
Municipal Association Opinions. THE following opinions were given by the Municipal Association last week, in reply to questions from municipalities : That a Council could not enter upon, cut, and remove timber from Crown lands, how- ever, vested, for timber required for muni- cipal purposes. As to whether a building coming within the category of " a church, a school, and an orphanage, under tho supervision of chari- table sisters, open to all sects, and supported by voluntary contributions, was liable to be rated. It was the opinion of the Committee that such buildings and institutions did not come under the operations of the Act ; but in view of some doubt it was considered advisable to take legal opinion. A Council could alter the width of foot- paths to prevent destruction of trees planted in the streets, if the streets are more than 6Gft.wide, on application to the Government. A magistrate can fine offenders against municipal by-laws, and refuse to allow costs of summons. A Coun...

THE PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
THE PUBLIC WOEKS COMMITTEE. THE Public Works Committee appear to be drag- ging it slow length along. When it will deal with the Northern questions before it, there is no conso- lation in prophecy. As usual, Southern and West- ern Railway extensions are to have the preference in consideration. But even in respect to some of those, the Works Department is blocking the way in respect to the Committee's action. On Wednes- day last the Committee, on the motion of Mr. GABBABD, resolved to arrange the order of con- sideration of the works remitted by the Assembly, and to appoint sectional committees. Subsequently Mr. BARLIMG, the Under-secretary for Public Works, was called in for the purpose of informing the Committee as to which works were in the most forward stage for calling for tenders. That gentle- man stated that tenders might-so far as his department was concerned-be called within the next two months for all the railway works sub- mitted to the Committee. His opinion, however, was ...
Disastrous Collision in the Harbor Narrow Escape of the Passengers and Crew of the s.s. Centennial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
Disastrous Collision in the Harbor Harrow Escape of tho Passengers and Crew of the s.s. Centennial. ON Friday some excitement was occasioned in Sydney, when a report was circulated that one of the large passenger steamers had been sunk by collision in the harbor. The colliding steamers were the Centennial and the Kanahooka. The former sustained considerable damage and sank, almost immediately, the passengers and crew, numbering upwards of IOU, barely escaping with their lives. The Kanahooka narrowly escaped a similar fate, her bow being completely wrecked. The Centennial was on her way to New Zealand with about 50 passengers, including a number of ladies, and a large and valuable cargo, whilst the Kanahooka was inward bound from Wollongong, with coal. According to the statements of some of those on board, the Centennial was shaping a course to pass j through the western channel. She had gotabreast of Chowder Bay safely, when the Kanahooka came up and struck her stem on. The collisio...
Echoes and Opinions. THE CLAIMS OP THE N0ETH COAST DISTRICTS [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
Echoes and Opinions. THE CLAIMS OP THE N0ETH COAST DISTRICTS MB. HEBBEET L. ELLES has been dilating in the columns of the Baily Telegraph upon " The claims of the North Coast districts," taking as a basis for his line of argument the letter of " Graf tonia " upon the same subject. We think it is a pity he did not follow the usual practice of counsel learned in the law, and obtained the assistance in the preparation of his brief of an attorney who knew something of the case. It is true that even a well-prepared brief might not have kept Mr. Elles quite on the straight line of the case, for barristers, somewhat like parsons, do not always stick closely to their subject. Mr. Elles is no doubt a very estimable gentleman to those who know him personally, and an able member of the profession to which he belongs ; but he will pardon us, doubtless, for say- ing that he evidently does not know everything. In discussing the claims of the North Coast districts he-as we are informed, is not unu...
AUSTRALIA FOR THE AUSTRALIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
AUSTRALIA FOR TUE AUSTRALIANS. A CONSIDERABLE fuss has been made about the Western Australia Constitution. Much censure has been passed by anti-Imperialist journals upon the Home Government, in connection with the matter, and Lord KNUTSFORD particularly has been blamed for what now appears to have been no fault of his or his colleagues. Every- thing now goes to prove that the Home Gov- ernment were anxious to pass the measure conferring the Constitution. Indeed, Lord KNCTSFORD'S speech in the House of Lords, when moving the second reading of the Bill, went quite fully to the extent our own PREMIER did ia claim- ing for tho Western Australians the right to govern themselves. In Eome respects we are not quite sure that he did not go farther. He certainly did not conoeal the thought that responsible Government should be conceded in view of that Au-tralian Federation, which must ensue at no distant date. Lord KKDTSFORD bas not unfre quently been referred to, both as a man and the offici...
THE DON DORRIGO RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
THE DON DOEEIGO EESEEVE. IN its " answers to correspondents " column, the Sydney Mail replying to an enquiry as to the Don Dorrigo Reserve, refers the-enquirer to Mr. O-O. DANGAB, M P., for information. No doubt a very good source, for the reason that Mr. DANGAR visited a portion of the Reserve a short time since, and subsequently supplied the metropolitan papers with a very interesting description of his trip and of the character of the country. We wish to remark, however, that the locale of the Don Dorrigo is scarcely correctly described when spoken of as being within Mr. Dangar's electorate. The Don Dor- rigo is in the electorate which Mr. SEE represents, namely, that of Grafton, and is situate upon the head waters of the ¡Nymboida River (one of the main branches of the Clarence) and its tributaries. The Dorrigo country, it is true, extends over the range forming the north-western water-shed of the Bellinger River, but the portion most sought after, and best suited for agricultur...
INSUFFICIENCY OF POLICE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
QíSUFFICIENCY OF POLICE PROTECTION. SEVERAL complaints have been made to ns with regard to the insufficiency of police protection in Grafton. On more than one occasion recently what have been very closely approaching outrages, have been committed in the West Ward. A very bad case of riotous conduct and obscene language, accom- panied by what approached in character very near to an attempted assault upon two young women, took place one evening during last week. While in the same neighbourhood riotous conduct and foul language in the public streets is no uncommon occurrence, to the annoyance and terror of persons who reside in the locality. So bad ha9 this became that we are informed it is intended to ask for a police station to be established somewhere in the vicinity of Turf and Dobie streets, or at least that some more efficient police protection shall be provided, which will have the effect of checking the conduct of the larrikin class. The known absence of the police from certain...
Northern Railway Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
Northern Railway Kates. A RETURN, showing the competitive rates on the Northern line of railway, was recently printed by order of the Legislative Assembly. It exhibits some striking anomalies (says the Echo). From Sydney to Armidale, 358 miles, the rates appear to increase in propor- tion to the distance; but from Guyra, 385 miles, to Wallangarra, 490 miles, there is an uniform rate, in most instances much less. Thus, for instance, the freight per ton to Armidale for the four classes of goods respec-. tively is £i 14s 3d, £5 17s 4d, £8 3s Gd, and £10 10s 7d ; while the respective charges for the same four classes of goods to Guyra and thence on to Wallangarra are £6, £6, £7, £7. This bears out the statement made in the Legislative Assembly, recently, that it paid the Armidale storekeepers to have certain classes of goods sent on to Guyra, since by paying the rate mentioned to Guyra, and the small charge back from that station to Armi- dale, the freight was considerably less than if ...

FRAUDS ON DIXSON'S CONQUEROR TOBACCO. Some unprincipled retailers of Tobacco are placing the Conqueror tin-tags upon Tobacco, and disposing of same as the genuine article. Now the public are therefore cautioned against this deception, and are at the same time respectively invited to submit any doubtful purchases to Dixson and Sons, who offer a substantial reward for convincing evidence against the aforesaid offenders.-Conqueror Tobacco Works, Hyde Park.-ADV.
Water Gas. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
Water Gas. A SPECIAL general meeting of the members of the | Engineering,. Association was held in Sydney last week for the purpose of hearing Mr. Rock's paper on "Water Gas." On taking the chair the President had intimated that the Council had decided to call the members together especially for the purpose of receiving Mr. Rock's paper. The subject of water gas was one which was occupying a great deal of attention at the present time, and, although it was not altogether a new one, it was fresh to the colony. In his opinion there was a great future before water-gas in New South Wales. It would revolutionise the working of the mine3 of the colony, and, applied to the ores, would be likely to be productive of very good results. Mr. Rock, who is an engineer, though not a member of the association, said :-For the ordinary purpose of generating gas for household purposes, the apparatus comprised a boiler, carburetter, scrubber, and a gas-holder in addition. One of the patents comprised a...
For Prostration Use Horsfoid's Acid Phospate. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
For Frostration Use Horsfoid's Acid Phospate. Dr. N. I. Butler. îi.K.Q.C.P., 52 Longstone-road, Eastbourn, England, says: "I have used it in con- valescence from acute diseases (fever, icc), where there was profound prostration, with complete loss of appetite. Its effects were very quickly mani- fested and most satisfactory. I have also used it in cases of general debility with good results. I regard it as a most valuable addition to our materia medica." The best hypnotic, especially for those engaged in brain work, is a cold sponge all over before jnet going to bed. The sudden chill, followed by the warmth of the bedclothes, teems to relieve the congested condition of the vessels of the brain and thus induce sleep.
The Mente for Grafton's Views. His Speech on the Deficit. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889
The Mente for Grafton's Yiews., His Speech; on the Deficit. SPEAKING in the Assembly on "Wednesday, Mr. SEE said every member in the House seemed agreed that there was in existence a deficiency of £2,600,000, and that some determined effort should be made to extin- guish it. The gentlemen sitting in Opposi- tion appeared quite as anxious as the Gov- ernment to pass some measure dealing with the matter, but the details were where they disagreed. The Jennings-Dibbs Government i had imposed a 5 per cent, ad valorem duty, and certain specific duties to put the finances of the colony in a satisfactory condition, and a Land Bill had been passed by a former Government to place the land laws on a proper footing, and reap the largest amount of revenue from the public estate. If those measures had been allowed to remain in force there would have been no necessity for the present measure. No regard had been paid by the Free-trade Government to the cause for which the ad valorem duties had been...
