WRECK OF THE BARQUE FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1891

WRECK OF THE BARQUE FIJI. The number of wrecks that have lately oc   curred in Victorian waters, will arouse a very strong feeling of alarm among shipping men as well as among the general public. The coast   will come to be regarded in something the same way as the rugged shores of New Zealand, whose rocky headlands cause vessels approaching   it to pay high insurance premiums. During the past six months no less than five shipping disasters have occurred in Victorian waters and in our harbor, even to vessels trading here. First, there was the double wreck on     the same day of the Craigburn and the J. H. Scammell. Hardly had those fatalities grown cold on the public ear,   when the Taramung was swallowed up in the sea along tho coast, and left only a little   wreckage to tell the tale of her loss. The stranding of the Bancoora was a minor accident, and was attended with no loss of life, so it...

THE "VALLEY OF PARADISE." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1891

THE 'VALLEY OF PARADISE.' , Valparaiso, the commercial capital and prin cipal seaport of Chili, and how famous as tho scene of the groat battle whioh within the past few days brought tho long and bitter struggle in the Republic to a final closo, presents to an Englishman on his first arrival many features of interest. Though Chili is in many respects perhaps the most important of all the republics of South America, it is undoubtedly the one of whioh Englishmen as a rule know least. War, that great ' geographical . instructor, is making its name, its. position and resources better known. Tho ignorance ' prevailing in England in regard to the climatoi population, government and tho great .men' ofr Chili is not only r-urprising but lamentable.' .- To an Englishman arriv ing say- in December the first and most striking .contrast, to tho laud he has left which prosents. itself is that instead of the. sharp keen'air, frozen lakes and snow clad hills, ho is under a',,' tropical sun, is gla...

OUR NEW ZEALAND LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 October 1891

OUK NEW ZEALAND LETTEE.' The Government have carried their taxation proposals though the popular Chamber with flying colors, and tho amendments made in the Land and Income 'Assessment Bill have been of such a nature as to ensure more ' than the esti mate of revenue being realised under the new system. The Opposition fought hard of course against a measure which will, make the pro pertied classes contribute a fairer proportion of taxation than they have hitherto been doing, but their; efforts to get the .bill amended in the 'direction' they; wanted were altogether fruitless. New Zealand suffers a good deal from absentee ism. Many men are deriving big incomes from/the colony, and spending the money either in the old country or on the Continent. They own enor mous tracts of land as sheep runs, and give em ployment to very few people except during shearing time. They don't improve the land in any way, and wire fences do duty for tho few shepherds who were formerly in their service. The ...

SUMMARY OF NEWS. Another aide-de-camp has been appointed to* the Earl of Hopetoun in the person of Captain Granville Bardley Forbes,, of tho Cameron Highlanders. The Maori prophet, To Whiti, who was recently adjudged a bankrupt, has, treated tho whole matter' with indifference, and is, there fore, to be charged with contempt of Court.
