Richmond River. FRIDAY, AUGUST 23RD. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

Richmond River. FRIDAY, AUGUST 23RD. WRECKERS.- At the Ballina Police Court to-day three men were fined £1 each, with costs and witnesses' expenses, for fraudulently taking goods from a wreck. They went in a boat to the schooner Bannockburn, lying a wreck at Byron Bay, and took off one sail, one chain, a coil of rope and 20 blocks, with the intention of claiming salvage from the South British Insurance Company. Had the information been laid under the 116th section of the Criminal Law Amendment Act, the Bench would have had no alternative but to commit. POSTAL.-In response to the application for a daily mail from Casino to Tenterfield, the postal authorities have officially notified that when tenders are being called for next year's services, one for a tri-weekly or daily mail from Lismore to Sydney will be included, and prior to that time further inquiry would be made on the subject.

Political and Social Letter. [From our Special Correspondent.] SYDNEY, SATURDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 27 August 1889

Political and Social Letter. LFrom our Special Correspondent.! SYDNEY, SATURDAY EVENING. XHE jjenoit removal proposals of the TBEASUKEB have ended in what maybe justly described as a wretched fizzle. The original scheme of Mr. MCMILLAN, as your readers are aware, was to wipe out the deficit by selling a large quantity of suburban lands-meaning thereby, lands in the vicinity of Sydney. But this scheme was stoutly opposed by most of the politicians, and by a large number of the Free-traders in the metropolis who are engaged in commerce. The latter have specu- lated largely in suburban lands, and most of them speculated unwisely, for they cannot dispose of their purchases for anything like the money they gave for them ; and th^y argued very sensibly that if the Government threw a large area of suburban land into the market the effect would be to increase the difficulty of their getting out of their specula- tions with a profit. Their protests carried weight with the Ministry, and so th...

A TALKING MACHINE.-Passing from the merely entertaining to the practically interesting and serviceable, the Knightbridge/ete includes a feature of far more than ordinary attraction, in the shape of a talking machine. In this exhibit Edison has surpassed all his previous triumphs, and has brought the phonograph to a point of perfection that is only to be described as marvellous. For some twenty minutes in each hour the fete is open this wonder- ful piece of mechanism is made to perform, while its mysterious powers are lucidly explained by a Miss Ferguson who, it may be mentioned, is the only lady expositor of the features and nse3 of the invention. The London offices of the company are at Edison House, Northumberland Avenue, and none of my readers should lose a day in making themselves acquainted with this most marvellous of the nineteenth-century marvels.

Spring Hill Butter Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Spring Hill Butter Factory. LISMORE, FBIDAY NIGHT.-The Spring Hill Co-operative Butter Factory, the first in the dis- trict, situated niue miles from Lismore, commenced operations yesterday. The occasion was made quite a holiday in the neighbourhood. Over 200 people assembled, coming from various centres around and interested in dairying. Over 700 gallons of milk were operated on. Everything worked as satis- factorily as could be expected. The factory build- ing and plant cost £1100, has an eight-horse power engine, two de Laval separators of a capacity of 150 gallons per hour each. The churn turns out 5001bs. butter, and altogether, it is a very complete plant. At a luncheon provided speeches were made, when the speakers dwelt strongly on the necessity of improvement to the bar ; also the need of refrigerating chambers on steamers. The members of the School of Arts decided by a majority of 3 to 1 to open the reading-room on Sunday afternoons. Business people are again much inconven...

Is the Earth in Danger from the Drill? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Is the Earth in Danger from the Drill ? PROFESSOR JOSISPH F. JONES answers, in a recent issue of the Popular Science Monthly, the question, " Is it safe to drill the earth too much ?" The Pro feesor assumes the earth to be a hollow sphere filled with a gaseous substance, called bj us natural gas, and he thinks that tapping these reservoirs will cause disastrous explosions, resulting from the lighted gas coming in contact with that which is escaping. He compares the earth to a balloon floated and kept distended by the gas in the interior, which, ii exhausted, will cause the orust to collapse, affect the motion of the earth in its orbit, cause it to lose its place among the heavenly bodies, and fall in pieces. Another writer thinks that drilling should be prohibited by stringent laws. He, too, thinks there is a possibility of an explosion, though from another cause. Should such a disaster occur, " the country along the gas belt from Toledo through Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky will be r...

Some New Drugs. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Some New Drugs. ANTIPYRIN is still considered a new drag. Though it has been before the profession for a long while, its wonderful properties have not been fully under tood or appreciated until quite recently. Promi- nent among its actions is its faculty of relieving headache, and so decided and unquestionable ia this that it is worthy of special note. In his recent Croonian lectures, Dr. M'Alister said :-" A condi- tion in which it had an excellent effect-some called it a specific action-was migrane. In his own person he had found that nothing acted so promptly or so certainly in averting or assuaging the paroxysm." Dr. Kingsbury reports that he gave the drug in twenty cases, some of which had suffered for ten years. "In no case did the Antipyrin fail." " It prevents as well as cures the attacks." The British Medical Journal (January 17th, 18S8) says :-" There seems no reason to doubt that in Antipyrin we possess a powerful anodyne for pain of nervous or rheumatic origin. Dispensed...

AN IRRIGATION SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

AN IRRIGATION SETTLEMENT. A VEBY interesting description of Eiverside, an irrigation settlement in Lower California, with which the Messrs. Chaffey Brothers, now of Mildura Irrigation Colony, has been published. The settle- ment has been established some 18 years. The land in its clay state was of no particular value. The area at first taken up was 6000 acres, but 2000 acres have since been added. Upon this 8000 acres, a town of 8000 inhabitants, with 14 handsome churches, large schools, and public buildings has sprung up in a few years, and everyone is happy and prosperous, all bronght into existence by the magic power of water. The areas held by each household rarely exceed 10 acres. The products of Riverside are oranges, lemons, cured fruits, chiefly grapes and apricots, with other canned fruits. The canneries established in the town are generally companies apart from the growers, who can either get their fruits canned on a certain commission or sell to the companies. The canning...

DYNAMITE FOR STUMPING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

DYNAMITE FOB STUMPING. lu blowing ont stamps (says a correspondent) my plan is to bore an inch and a half auger hole in about the centre root, a little below the level of the ground. Pnt the primer tight in the fuse. Unfold the dynamite cartridge, insert the primer, fold the paper back, and tie it with a string. Put the cart- ridge in the anger hole, well under the stump, and tamp with dirt, light at first and afterwards with a wooden rammer, cut off the fuse, fire it, and get well back out of the way. Old stumps can be blown clear ont, but green ones will burst into pieces, which you will have to burn or grub out. For small stumps a half cartridge is sufficient. Use waterproof fuse, and keep the dynamite and primers apart. Use it in warm weather, as it freezes at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and then is of no use. _

The Brain-Power of Plants. (From the National Review) [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

The Brain-Power of Plants. 1 - ( (From the National Review.} I NUMEROUS instances might be pointed out, in which not only are the signs of sensibility as fully developed in the plant as in the animal, but many phases of animal life are exactly imitated. Take for example those wonderful plants the Mimosa, sensitive of the most delicate touch. The manner in which this plant closes its stalks and leaves at the approach of darkness is very interesting. As the gloaming gently falls, the leaves move upwards towards each other till they touch ; the secondary leaf-stalks slowly droop till they are nearly parallel with the main leaf-stalks, which, in their turn, fall till they point to the ground. Thus it folds itself at the close of day, and there is no doubt, if it were not allowed to sleep, it would, like ourselves, soon die. This is not only an example of the necessity of sleep for the re- pairing of nervous energy and recuperation of brain- power, bnt a proof of the existence of the sam...

THE SUGAR BOUNTIES BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

THE SUGAR BOUNTIES SILL. WHILE the leader of the Commons wa3 announcing the decease of the Bill to the House, it is not a little singular that the Prime Minister was explain- ing the action of Her Majesty's Government in regard to the measure to a crowded meeting of Conservative working mea at the East end of London. He said : To his extreme surprise the Government were being accused of having raised the price of sugar by reason of a treaty which would not come into operation for two years. It was rather like the fable of the wolf and the lamb-the lamb drinking some distance down the stream was accused of fouling the stream for the wolf, who was drinking above. He thought they should rather attribute any rise in the price of sugar to the action of the bounties themselves, the result of which had been to drive back capital and industry in one case after another, until the natural sources from which the supply of sugar came had contracted, and, of course, there was a tendency in the p...

Gambling and the Church. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

Gambling and the Church. IF the Lower House of the Southern Convocation I had done nothing beyond dealing with the report about gambling, and passing the Committee's recommendations, it would have redeemed itself from the charge of a futile session. We were not prepared to learn that the diocese of Truro was freest from this social disease, especially since Cornwall is a mining county, and miners are pro- verbially addicted to the vice. The Vicar of Wolverhampton did well to move the rider which discourages "the employment of raffles and lotteries at bazaars and fancy-fairs." The Bishop of Colchester certainly covered himself with ridi- cule, or something more serious, when he judged it absurd of Convocation to make such a recommen- dation. Bishops do live very much up in the air, and away from the common ken of ordinary mortals, else he might have easily assured himself that the gambling for so-called religious ends has become a grevious scandal. The Bishop of Man- chester has been...

The Labour Programme of the World. (From the Pall Mall Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

The Labour Programme oi the World. (From the Pall Mall Gazette.) THE citizens and citizenesses who represent the workers of the world at the Intercolonial Congress now assembled at Paris seem to have made np their minds with tolerable unanimity as to what should be the labour programme of the world. The programme, as drawn up, has its salient principles :-1. Intercolonial action. 2. Shorter hours of labour. 3. A minimum wage. There are other principles, but these are the chief. Upon the first we need hardly say that there must be absolute agreement among all social students. Those who lead the van in the movement for shorter hours and higher wages will simply be sacrificed if we forgo too far in advance of our main body. Mr. Fenwick M.P., who has no love for eight-hours laws, put the case with his usual clearness. He told the Congress that the English miners worked seven and a half hours, while they earned 2s a day more than the German and Belgian miners, though the latter worked 12...

Richmond River. I AUGUST 28. UNEXPENDED VOTES.-In reply to a question asked by Mr. Ewing, M.P., in the Assembly, it was stated that there were £6021 of unexpended balances of road and bridge votes from, last year, for the Biohmond and Tweed districts.

THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

THE DAIRYING INDUSTRY. TUE prospectos of the Clarence River Pioneer Dairying Company, limited, has been issued, and application forms circulated, inviting the taking np of shares. It ia estimated that £1200 will he necessary to give the affair a proper start, and the nominal capital is fixed at £2000. A canvass some time ago resulted in the promise to take up 700 shares, but if our farmers have any faith in the undertaking, or are really desirous ofgiving dairy- ing a fair trial, there should be no difficulty ID alloting shares sufficient to cover all the proposed capital. The Directors will not entertain applica- tions for less than five shares, bat there is no maximum limit. Power is reserved to the Directors tote-purchase at the market value the shares of those who are not suppliers of milk. The judicious- ness of this provision might be questioned, and will probably have the effect of preventing many that would otherwise invest from doing so. The Direc- tors may see fit to give ...

THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER. IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889

THE AGRICULTURIST & GRAZIER? IRRIGATION. THE Irrigation business is assuming large dimen rions in Victoria. Still they do not run quite smoothly. Applications are lodged for Irrigation works, and responsibilities accepted, the works con- structed, and then efforts are made in some in- stances to shake off the responsibility. There is some ready excuse always at. hand. The method adopted is for the Government to advance, upon certain stated conditions, to local Trusts, the money for the construction of the works. ThiB ÍB done with the clear understanding "that interest should be paid by the parties locally interested, the argu- ment being that it would be manifestly unfair that - the taxpayers throughout the colony should bear the burden of purely local water works. Notwith- standing this condition, many of the trusts are in arrear with their interest, and there is just the probability that measures will have to be taken to make them pay up. One of those Trusts is £2162 in ar...
