The Land Bill. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

The Land Bill. ALTHOUGH ene Land Bill was nuder discussion in committee of the Legislative Council five hours on Wednesday, very little progress was made. Clause 42 was passed after minor amendments had been made in it, and clause 43, dealing with extension of pastoral and homstead leases in the central and wes- tern divisions, was debated at great length, it being contended by several hon. members that as the clause was at present worded the squatter had no guarantee however much he expended on his improvements, that he would secure an extension. The clause was amended in several places, and will doubtless be further amended in order to make it perfectly clear that the lessee shall have an absolute right to an ex- tension provided he makes specified improvements. One amendment made last week provided that ap- plication for extension should be lodged within 90 days prior to the commencement of the last three (instead of two) years of current lease. The most important amendment effec...

On Pianoforte Teaching. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

On Pianoforte Teaching. j SOME observations on pianoforte teaching made in his annual report by Professor Waetzoldt, director of the Royal Elizabeth School in Berlin, have attracted much attention in Germany, and they ?will not be without interest nearer home. He says:-"It may be affirmed that the home music practice of girls is more responsible for the ner- vousness and weakness from which many of them suffer than the much-blamed school. Pianoforte ! teaching should not begin before the twelfth year, j Moreover, music should only be studied by healthy ¡ girls, musically gifted, of whom it may be expected ' that their playing will one day give pleasure to I their fellow-creatures. Of a hundred girls who learn to play the piano, ninety attain after years of labour to only a certain automatic skill, which not only possesses no relation to artistic execution, but is even destructive of the capacity of genuine musical expression. The endless claims made upon the time and strength of gro...

Z. Houp on Moorings. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

Z. Houp on Moorings- ! SIE.-In your issue of 3rd instant I wrote in reference to a letter written by the Secretary of i the Marine Board, " That the laying of moorings was a matter for private enterprise." I dissented from that view, and consequently have drawn a lengthy epistle from Mr. Z. Houp in your issue of - 24th instant. I pity the mau, he has '. no progress in or about him;" a "death-like lethargy has fallen on the people at Double Crossing" (and I -" suppose on himself, as he seems to resides there.) " A lion comes and bullies them into starvation." . Instead of attacking the lion he falls on me, and writes, " The pricking of his own conscience will stir up his ire, and expose his weak spots to the public," and also that "lam nursing a Echeme." In. fact his letter is one mass of incongruous matter, irrevelant to the question at issue, or in fact to any other question ; but a letter stabbing some person in the dark. If Mr. Z. Houp has a dislike to any one in his district why...

The Revolution at Honolulu. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

The Revolution at Honolulu. THE Honolulu Bulletin gives full particulars of the unsuccessful attempt at revolution made by Wilcox and a number of his followers,] The name of Princess Liliuokalani was freely made use of on the streets in connection with the revolution, and in view of this fact a reporter called on the Princess at her residence, and asked her the following question :- . ' " Reports being around that yon were implicated with Wilcox in his designs, and that he held secret meetings at your Palama residence, which you attended, will you say whether, or not such is the case?" ' The Princess replied that she knew nothing whatever of Wilcox's intentions until the Minister -informed her after her return from Hilo in June : that after being so informed she at once told W ilcox she did not approve of -his designs if such was his intention, and told him he should desist without further delay ; that she had never been present at any of his meetings. The Princess also stated in i ...

Cricket. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

Cricket. OUR Lower Clarence representative writes-On Saturday night a meeting of the Maclean Cricket Club was called by advertisement in the local paper, and in spite of the foot note ("business important") there was not a sufficiently large attendance to do any business at all. It will not be forgotten by most of your readers who are interested in this national sport, that the Maclean Club (from a player's point of view) had a pretty successful season last year ; financially, however, it was a miserable failure, the balance sheet show- ing an amount of £12 on the wrong side of the ledger. Tarions suggestions were offered as to the best means of wiping off this deficit, and it was eventually decided to arrange for a concert which it was thought, if properly worked np, would about place the club in a solvent condition again. The matter was only taken up in a half-hearted man ner, and after the lapse of six months, the sugges- tion still remains to be carried into effect. Con- sequent...

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1859.] TUESDAT MORNING, 27TH AUGUST, 1889. OUR NATURAL FORESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ ESTABLISHED 1S59.] _ TCESDAT MOENING, 27TH AUGUST, 1889. OUll NATURAL FORESTS. WE have ia this country an occasional suggestion aa to how necessary it is that measures should be taken to preserve our natural forests. We also hear of some sort of ill-contrived proposals for planting-in connection with forest conservation -certain kinds of timber trees. So far as we have been able to gather, however, that tree-planting has not been eminently successful, nor is it likely to be so under existing methods. Reports are made as to the numbers of trees planted, but what becomes of these plants, or what the care bestowed upon them, is just one of those things the public ate never fully made acquainted with. Possibly the existing system may be improved upon some day, but that will scarcely be until tue manage- ment of our forests are placed under different control than that of the present. That may be under a departmentof the Government-Agricul- ture and F...

Mr. Varley's Mission. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

Mr. Varley's Mission. I SPEAKING in Sydney on " The ifs and neuter j words of unbelief," Mr. Varley said that unbelief was the parent of all sin, and that ; in so far as men distrusted God so they became unlike God. He dealt with the shallowness of those who affect to know very little, and by their discrediting the truths of inspiration made a bid for populerity. The scepticism of to-day was only a representation of old errors festooned with flowers. He then drew a picture of the state of the land of Canaan when Joshua led the Israelites into the land. The people were corrupt, ripe and ready for destruction, and Joshua was simply acting as the representative of the supreme moral Governor of the universe in exterminating them. He (Mr. Varley) could not worship God unless God had a limit to His forbearance of national sin. The his- tories of modern Greece, Rome, France and other countries showed the judgments of Go^ upon nations for their sins. God had responsibility in regard to life...

A Remarkable Secession. I THE Bev. A. Jerome P. Matthews, for the past two years Kornau Catholic priest at St. Mary's, Bath, has addressed the following letter to the members of his congregation:-"My very dear Friends,-I have to make an announcement which will be painful alike to yourselves and to me. It shall be very brief, for it is sad to me to part from you ; it will be sadder for you to learn the cause. After long and anxious thought and study I have arrived at the conviction that the Jewish and Christian Scriptures; though possessing many excellencies, are full of legendary and mythological statements, and that they possess no claim to, and manifest no evidence of, divine inspiration; that the Roman Catholic Church haB no claim to be regarded as a divinely constituted authority ; that the Papacy is a human institution, gravely compromised to error and superstition, and therefore injurious to the spiritual and temporal welfare of mankind ; that Jesus Christ, though a holy man a...

London's Increasing Population. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

London's Increasing Population. WHAT is to become of London is a question which, naturally occurs to all who study closely the vital statistics regularly published by the Registrar General. As a rule, it may be confessed that the reports issued weekly, and summaries of which appear in the newspapers, receive no more attention from the public than the most ordinary paragraphs of intelligence-they are glanced at and are soon forgotten. Yet there are few, if any, more import- ant questions to which Londoners must at no dis- tant date devote the most careful and anxious con- sideration than the rapidly increasing population and area of the metropolis. A hundred and fifty years ago, it was said, "London in it3 large sense, including Westminster, Southwark, and part of Middlesex, is a city of very surprising extent, of prodigious wealth, and of the most extensive trade." At that time it extended from Hyde Park corner to Poplar, seven miles from west to east, the breadth varying from half ...
