Riverstone. TRUCKS OFF. --- On Wednesday evening, through some mishap at the points, several trucks were cut off the line near the station.

Church, will be held in the Cosmo politan Hall. Mr. Carroll (the energetic Secre tary) has left no stone unturned to make it a success, and as a good programme will be sub mitted, I have no doubt the audience will be a large one.

The Reason Why. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 December 1888
The Reason Why. Mr. See, M. P. asks.-" How is it that three or foiir families are now living in one house in various parts of the City." We'll answer him. It is because land lords and monopolists extort heavy rents and crush the poorer classes into the dust. If rent were cheaper this would not be the case, and if the people had access to ] the thousands of acres of land locked up in the suburbs by speculators and swindling syndicates, there w6uld be ho necessity for resort to this double-banking system.

Irrigation. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 December 1888
Irrigation. Says T over J (HERALD) : A friend of mine who eschews newspaper correspond ence because, as he saj's, his hands are too rough and weather-worn to handle a pen, writes to me from the Far West, from somewhere between Cobar and Wil cannia. His theme is strigation, and he believes in it, but the burthen of his com plaint is that while every " so-called en - gineer" demands a " compreheneive" sehcme of headings at the expense of the revenue; with any number of survey parties sent out to take levels and make elaborate plans, nobody seems to under stand that this time of drougot, when hardly a river iu the colony is running, Is exactly the occasion for constucting tem porarp dams across the Western rivers. The " scientific nuisances" (as he calls them) want the Government to play Into their hands, but all that practical men want is the right build dams across rivers and creeks so as to impound the rain when it comes, provided that the over flow be so dealt with So as to bring i...

Land Nationalization. (TO THE EDITOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 December 1888
Land Nationalization. (TO THE EDITOR.) SIR,-I know not whether your correspondent, Wm. Walker, has succeeded in convincing the readers of the GAZETTE that Sir Henry Parkes is perfectly conversant with all irtatters pertaining to land legislation, but that he has succeeded ad mirably in showing that he himself has not reached that point of perfection, notwithstanding his " Sir Oracle^' treatment of the subject, no one will deny. For instance, he sees a change of ground in the proposed change of ttame to Single Tax League. If all revenue were raised From land, the evils now Arising from private ownership would disappear, as landowners would be compelled to use their land, or allow others to do so ; and as any increase in value, brought about by the increase of popu lation, &c., would go to the State, there would be no inducement, as now, to retain possession. In this way land would be made accessible to all wishing to use it. This is the aim of a Single Tax; it is the aim of L...

The Queen's Annual Income. THE Londbn correspondent bf the Liverpool Daily Post, referring to the rumonr that an allowance will be asked for on behalf of the Prince bf Wales and his family during the autumn session, points out that the Queen has an annuity drawn from the consolidated fund of £385,000, which is specially allotted to meet those expenses connected with her high position, the partial weight of which has been transferred to the Heir Ap parent. But (continues the correspon dent ) that is only a portion of the enor mous income which good fortune and frugal habits have placed at the disposal of the Queen. That new Domesday Book discloses the fact that the Queen's 'private estates extend Over 37,372 acres, the annual rental, even at the lately depreciated prices being ^"20,733. Some yifiars ago her Majesty acting under the advice of Lord Sydney, purchased Clare mont for the sum of £"78,000, estimated at the time has being a little over half its market value.

HOUSE HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 December 1888
HOUSE HILL. THE old school buildings, at the Church of Eng land, are deserted, and the new school, which has stood empty for a month, now echoes to the sound of children's voices. Yet, alas, our genial friend Mr. Drummond is no longer in charge : for the de partment, whose ways are always mysterious, have sent him to Appin, and have brought Mr. Levey from Appin to fill his place. Yet before his de parture, Mr. Drummond was testimonialisfed by the children, who read him an address, testifying their joy in his presence ; and they emphasised their words with the presentation of a marble clock. Bush fires have been doing a lot of damagfe here this week. A very pleasant concert was given here on Wednesday week last. Several ladies from River stone and the surrounding district were in at tendance and assisted. Amongst the vocalists was Mr. E. Rouse, who was encored no less than three times for one song.
Visit of a Surveyor. [Newspaper Article] — Windsor and Richmond Gazette — 1 December 1888
Visit of a Surveyor. Mr. Surveyor Keele arrived on Tues day, Mr. Hugh Taylor having secured a promise from the Minister that an officer should be sent to inspect and report on the state of the river. Mr. Keele was met by the Mayor, and in the afternoon a boat was procured, and a party con sisting of the visitor, .Messrs Mortley, Hole, Piddington, Beard, S. T. Greeri well, Norton and Rosa, proceeded up the river to Riccaby's Creek, and turning, went in the direction of South Creek. The shallowness of the river below the wharf made it compulsory for most of the party to disembark, and they proceeded on foot along the bank, whilst Mr. Keele, with the Mayor, were rowed along to about mid-way between the bridge and South Creek. Mr. Keele, it appears, made a survey of the river some 10 years ago, and the charts &c., made on that occasion he had with him, so that he was able to compare soundings &c., made on Tuesday at particular points, with those made 10 years ago. He fou...

Listen to me,-and if you speak me fair I I'll tell you ncsws, indifieYent good to either. | - I WHATEVER'difficulty may'SxisIt in bringing into practical politics a satisfactory land system, it is .quite certain that the question will have to be faced before long. The tramways ;aftd suburban railways are made, like other public works, at the cost of the people ; but who is it that is really 'benefitted ? The public who travel on them ? ; Yes, but they pay for that. Let anyone compare i the &lt;enormous rise in value of suburban lands wheft j 'once a line is run through them. Take the stations i just round Sydney and see how land, bought a few years ago almost for a song, has quadrupled in price by the advent of railway communication.
