WE chronicled last week the demise at Upper Coldstream of Mrs. Cave, the widow of Mr. John Cave. We learn that the. deceased lady was a native of Glasgow, at which place she was born in the year 1822. She had consequently reached the advanced age of 67 years at the time of her death. The deceased came to the colony in the year 1854, and shortly afterwards removed to the Clarence. She resided in Grafton for about 8 years, and subsequently settled with her husband upon the Upper Coldstream. The deceased leaves a family of 2 sons and 3 daughters to mourn the los3 of an affectionate mother, and a numerous circle of friends to regret the loss of a Christian neighbour. The deceased was a lister of Mrs. William Archer, sen,-ADV. J

, The Estimates. Personalities Freely used Discussing Public ,,L,.: ' Instruction Vote. THURSDAY 'S SITTING. IN the Assembly, the PREMIER, in reply ti Mr. Joseph Abbott, said he wo old lay on the table of the House a return showing the number of pauper patients admitted to the Sydney Hospital, and the amount paid for such by the Government. Mr. W. E. ABBOTT asked was the sum of £3000 placed on the Estimates as a special grant to the Zoological Society, to pay a debt? and was such debt due by Mr. Burdekin ? The PREMIER replied "no" (laughter). The Premier also said that the Government had received no intimation from the French to annex the New Hebrides The .House proceeded to deal with the Estimates at five o'clock. The first dealt with was the item for Public Instruction, which elicited angry discus- sion. Mr. ABIGAIL said that theie was an impression abroad that teachers were drawn from one section of the community, and this was a matter that required the attention of the Minister....

Centennial Demonstration of 1888.- | The final meeting in connection with this was held on Wednesday evening. Notwithstanding the fact that each Sunday school had been invited to send two representatives, only eight persons attended. Ur. Watkinson was voted to the chair. Attention was drawn to the necessity fit rescinding a former motion to enable the meeting to deal with the matter. The motion was rescinded without dis- sent, and the balance divided pro rata among the various schools represented at the late demon- stration. How TO SAVE MONEY.-In appreciation of the large patronage accorded (which necessitates increased store room), HoawiTZ and Co. have reduced their Furnishing stock 50 per cent. The extraordinary reductions made by this enterprising firm of exporters, has astonished customers ; and others should call to satisfy themselves of what can be saved.-ADV.
A Disgraceful Hoax. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
A Disgraceful Hoax. A SENSELESS hoax was (a Melbourne paper states) perpetrated on the pastor of the Wesleyan Church, Brunswick-street, Fitzroy, the Rev. S. Knight, who entered on his ministry only 10 days ago. At the conclusion of his first service on Sunday week he invited certain lady members of the church to 1 attend a soiree at his residence, Victoria-parade, during the following week. These invitations were confined to class members, and Beveral mem- bers of the congregation felt aggrieved at being ?? passed over. This seems to have created envy '. among the uninvited one3, and they determined '' to revenge themselves. Postcards were sent to ' local tradesmen, ordering quantities of confec- tionery, pastry, and fruit to be sent to McKnight's ' house on the afternoon appointed for the soiree. On that day boys and men came to the clergyman's house with trays of confectionery and baskets of fruit. A sweep called to clean the chimneys, according to an order by postcard ; a piano-t...
Bellinger River. WEDNESDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
Bellinger River. WEDNESDAY. AGBÍCÜLTOBAL ASSOCIATION.-Since .my last a rather awkward complication has arisen in connec- tion.with the election of President of the Bellinger River Agricultural Association. It will he remem- bered that the two gentlemen who contested the honour, viz., Messrs, Matthews and Black, scored a dead heat, polling 19 votes each, and that the chairman decided the matter in favour of Mr. Matthews. The chairman then mentioned that he had voted before, but claimed that he had in addition a "casting vote." Mr. Black protestad but the voice of the meeting supported the Chair- man's views, with the result already chronicled. Since then, however, the chairman has obtained an opinion on the matter, which holds that he had no right to vote the second time ; thus, according to this authority, Mr. Black was properly entitled to the position. He, however, stood for vice-president at the same meeting, and was duly elected ; conse- quently I think he has put himself out of...
Sturt v. Jamison. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
Sturt v. Jamison. IN Chambers, before Mr. Justice Foster. Mr. r O'Connor appeared for the plaintiff, Robert Sturt, i and moved for an order granting leave to issue execution on a memorial of a Queensland judgment for an amount due by Thomas C. Jamison for goods ? snpplied in connection with a selection taken up by defendant in Queensland. Dr. Sly appeared to oppose the motion on the ground that^ though ? defendant took up a selection in Queensland in 1831 he had never resided there. He took np the selection through a person named Meston, who, he understood, was an agent of the Queensland Gov- ernment, and he (Jamison) informed him that he was not a resident of Queensland. Meston said it waa not necessary. Twelve months afterwards he was called upon by the Queensland Government to show cause why the selection should not be for- feited, but after his explanation of the circum- stances it waa not forfeited. Not being a resident in Queensland he did not enter an appearance to the action...

Differential Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
I Differential Bates. IT is difficult to conceive on what basia the Com missioners fixed the rates on wool on the Northern line. As will be seen from the following scale now j charged on the line, undamped wool is subject to j the rational system of increased rates on the longer distances, but for greasy wool a somewhat extra- ordinary scale of levying reduced rates for increase of distance is recognised : g I I r-To Sydney. ë !

PARLIAMENT. TUESDAY'S SITTING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
PARLIAMENT. TCE8I»Ar'S SITUS«. IN the Legislative Council the House entered upon the consideration of the Lands Bill. Progress was slow, and four negatived amendments on clause 43 stood in place of work accomplished. Sir John Hay opposed the clause altogether as a " nugatory attempt at the solution of a great question." At last an amendment proposed by Mr. Cox-by which the board was obliged to grant leases under certain conditions for five and seven years, instead of those periods being the maximum of a variable sum was carried against the Government by 19 votes to ll. Farther amendments were agreed to, and the House reached clause 49, when an adjournment was made. j After TO odd notices of motion had been got through in the Assembly, Mr. J. P. ABBOTT moved the .suspension of the standing orders, and then moved the third reading of the Divorce Extension Bill. The question having been put and passed and the bill read a third time, the bill was entitled "An Act to Amend and Extend the...
Is it True? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
Is it True ? THE Lismore correspondent of the B. B. Express writes :-Since I wrote to you on Saturday last a stroke of what may tnrn out a good fortune has fallen to one of our local auctioneers. About 30 years ago the father of the auctioneer in question died, having previously made a will leaving all his property to a trustee and executor for the use of his only son and child, the Lismore auctioneer. The trustee had the custody of this will, and for 30 years not a word was ever heard of it. A few days ago the trustee came across this will and wrote to the mother of our auctioneer, and sent her a copy of the will in favour of her son. The property dealt with in the will is situate in Grafton, ana has been largely built upon by several people, who no doubt will object to give up possession of the lands without disputing our auctioneer's title, and the result will be litigation. It is to be hoped, however, that our young auctioneer will eventually get his rights, if he is entitled to...
WEDNESDAY'S SITTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
WEWfESDAY'S SIXTIXCIS. THE Council's sitting was a long one. It was devoted exclusively to the Land Bill. At one time it threatened to bring about a conflict between the two Houses. A new clause relating to surrey boundaries held under pastoral lease was added. The House passed the remaining clauses and pro- ceeded to discuss the postponed clauses. The Council held that members of the Land Court should have same tenure of office as District Court Judges. In the Assembly Mr. M'MILLAN, in reply to Mr. M'Conrt, said he was not prepared to say that all financial institutions receiving money on deposit should be compelled to publish half-yearly state- ments the same as banks, as many were registered under the Friendly Societies Act. He promised that he would consider the question fully during the recess. Mr. CRICK called the attention of the Colonial Treasurer to a report in which an American Assurance Company had repudiated its liability, and not being registered in the colony, the Com-...
The Aboriginals. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
The Aboriginals. THE aboriginal figured very prominently in the Assembly last week. Mr. Joseph Abbott called attention to the existence of the one-time owners of the country, and propounded a policy of his own, which he thought would be much better adapted to develop the physical and intellectual qualities of the black man than those which pre- vailed now. In his opinion the black man should be supplied gratis with a happy hunting-ground in the shape of a large area specially set apart for his cultivation, as a sort of set-off for the confisca- tion of his possessions by the invading palefaces, before whom the blackfellows have to disappear with the best grace they may. A diversity of opinion appeared to prevail among hon. members as to what reparation the invaders owed to the unfortunate people whom they had dispossessed. Mr. Dowel thonght we should give them a univer- sity education, or at any rate that we should see that the children of the aboriginals and half-casts, who now run...

Co. have put on extra boats to clear the wharves of the heaps of maize that accumulated dnring the heavy weather that affected the bar crossing. The Mac- leay for the past couple of months has exported more maize than any other river on the Coast.

The Railway Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
The Railway Folley. Uwlng to several matters in connection with the second hatch of railways and public works being still incomplete, the Minister will be unable to submit the list to Parliament before the end of next week. He expects to have them ready in plenty of time to get them on the Public Works Committee before the session closes. With refer- ence to the report of a meeting which took place aft Inverell, in which it is asserted that the route to connect Inverell with the main line at Olen Innes had been decided upon, the Minister for Works states that no decision has yet been arrived at as to where the connection will be. The Minister is [ having no less than four routes reported upon meeting the main line at Glen Innes, Guyra, Uralla, and Kentucky, and full consideration will be given to the relative merits of all these routes before i anything final has been determined upon.
The Latest Cablegrams. London, Wednesday. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
Tne Latest Cablegrams. London, Wednesday. IT is alleged that John Burns, the Socialist, bas dissuaded strikers from setting fire to the London docks and warehouses. The Calliope war-ship has been re-commissioned to the Australian service. London, Thursday. FEARFUL suffering is experienced by the London strikers. 1000 married men receive 18d worth of provisions daily. The dock-owners have conceded all demands except the increase of one penny. 3000 Belgians, who were engaged, have been stopped by the Labor Organisation telegraphing to them. A number of strikers have been imprisoned for intimidation. The Duke of Sutherland, M.P., Chairman of the P. and O. Company, accused the dock-owners of being the cause of the strike. The shipment of the organ for the Sydney Town Hall has been postponed. 70,000 carcasses of meat are afloat, for which the Companies and underwriters disclaim any liability. The strike has extended to Glasgow. Searle and O'Connor are training hard. Betting is 5 to' 4 on...
Free-trade Conference. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 31 August 1889
Free-trade Conference. SYDNEY, THURSDAY.-The Free-trade Conference decided that for revenue purposes a LAND TAX should be imposed, irrespective of improvements. Mr. Downing informed the Conference that an organised plan to prevent Mr. Wise from speaking had been formed, and he wanted the Conference to prepare a counter organisation. Â resolution ap- pointing Mr. Downing to head such, was withdrawn, after several speakers had deprecated the employ- ment of " amateur police " as calculated ta promote strife among the citizens. A third meeting on " Free-trade " was addressed by Mr. Carruthers who, as a native, received a good hearing. He contended that under Free-trade we '. stand head and shoulders above any colony in the Australian group." The Conference carried a resolution for the free admission of raw material. Also one to the effect that a Local Government Bill should be intro- duced as early as possible next session. Speaking at the Conference, Mr. Reid said that whateyer Govern...

Lower Clarence. MACLEAN, THÜBSDAY. Inquest.-The adjourned inquest on the body of the late Mr. John Murphy, of Palmer's Island, who died suddenly, was held at the Taloumbi hotel on Tuesday afternoon. A quantity of evidence was taken, after which the jnry unanimously brought in a verdict of " accidental death " by choking. Municipal Finances.-The balance sheet for the municipal half-year shows a debit balance of £160 10s lld, while the actual expenditure has been £22111s Od ; about three-quarters of which amount has been absorbed in general works for the town. The rest comes under the usual heading of working expenses. Municipal Boundary.-It is certainly re- freshing,, after having been so often obliged to intimate that this gentleman's visit had been " unavoidably postponed," to be able to announce his arrival and-without casting any reflection his departure. Naturally he was firmly impressed, as every sensible man must be, with the idea that . a glorious future was in Btore for this...

This showed a credit balance of 10s 3d ; the first eleven won 14 and lost ll matches, scoring 2353 runs for 422 wickets (average u.5 per wicket), against 2201 runs for 412 wickets (average 5.3") of their oppo- nents. T. McMillan secured the batting average with 17.6 runs per innings for 25 innings, but the bowling averages could not be compiled owing to the incomplete state of the books : the material of the club was in good order, and the matter of an asphalte wicket was recommended for considera- tion, provided a lease of ground could be obtained ; and concludes by referring to the less sustained by the club in the departure of Rev. T. J. Hyder and Mr. J. J. Glynn from the district. Three new members were elected, and Messrs. T. and J. Hill, in recognition past services, were elected free active...
