THE PROFESSOR ON FREE TRADE. FRIDAY'S AGE. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 13 March 1877
THE PROFESSOR ON FREE TRADE. FRIDAY S AGE. Professor Pearson stated his views on the questions of the day to the electors of Boroondara at the Hawthorn Town Hall last night, in one of those polished, incisive, and forcible speeches which help so much to elevate the tone of political discussion, as well as to instruct and educate the party whose cause they plead. Mr. Pearson is a free-trader and a liberal ; and as free-traders e hu are not liberals look upon the combina tion as almost as paradoxical as Romeo's Feathqr of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health, it is always necessary to offer to their be wildered senses the tribute of an explana tion. Mr. Higinbotham had to do this every time he spoke on the subject; and it looks as if Mr. Pearson who has very much in common with Mr. Higinbotham, had re signed himself to the same task. Like Mr. Higinbotham, though theoretically a free trader, he accepts the verdict of public opinion in favor of protection as a sufficient justifica...
THE PROFESSOR ON TEA AND SUGAR. FRIDAY'S ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 13 March 1877
THE PROFESSuit ON TEA AND SUGAR. FRIDAY'S ARGUS. But while the Professor is not willing to take off some of the multitudinous duties which now harass and cripple Victorian trade, he is quite ready to abolish the im posts on tea and sugar, seeing, we suppose, that this proposal is popular with the masses. . . . The. ostensible reasons put forward by the candidate for wisning to see these commodities pass in free, are that M'r. John Bright, an eminent freetrader, is desirous of removing the dity from them, and the cheapening of these articles may possibly promote the. cause of temlperance. Now, with all respect to Mr. John Bright, and without forgetting the very great ser vices he has rendered to the cause of free trade, we must venfire to differ from him on this point.. The duties on tea, coffee, sugar, &c., fulfil all the conditions of good taxes. They. are imposed on articles of general 'use, not produced in the colony; they are so light that they do not in any way check co...
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. PROFESSOR PEARSON AT HAWTHORN. FRIDAY'S ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 13 March 1877
. i.I.. NS OF TIlE 'PRESS. PROFESSOR PEARSON :1AT IrAW. THOR1IN. FRIDAY'S ARGCUS. Professor Pearson after his preliminary canter of list week, had' i formal meeting at Ilawthorn last night, and as he met with a fair reception, we suppOSe he may be con sidered as fairly committed to a contest for the representation of Boroondara. He com menced his speech by reference to the vexed question of free trade v. protection, and we must say that for a gentleman who regards those principles. of economic science which alpply to the interchange of, conimodities as being as true " as the rules of arithiuetic or the " laws of, granisner," ndthing could well be more unsatisfactory than 'his reniarks. So far, in his opinion, from being the one question of the day,. it would be a mistake to deal.with it until a land-tax is satisfac tdrily.. imposed. He coixteinds that if £200,000 or £300,000 were" tow be sacrificed by .the' remissionibf', duties, the means of makiiig good the amount,would,.to a cert...
FLOUR, GRAIN, AND PROVISION MARKETS. MELBOURNE, Saturday, March 10. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 13 March 1877
FLOUR, GRAIN, AND PROVISION MA1RKETS. MELBOURNE, Saturday, March 10. Breadstuffs are exceedingly dull, and the fact that the deliveries for the week are likely again to be heavy has not helped matters. Quotations for both wheat and flour are nominal at 6s tid and L14 10s respectively; but no inquiries are experienced, and not a single transaction has been reported. For wheat, however offers have been made at a penny and twopence under our quotations, without leading to business. Oats are moving off very steadily, but only for actual wants, and in that respect a fair inquiry exists, though no large lines are quitted. We hear of about ti8) bags having been placed at 3s lid for prime feeding. Maize is disposed of at 3s Td for old and 3s 9d for new; only trade sales, however, are effected. Malting barley, an ordinary sample, rather discolored, was placed at 51 2d.-Argus. GEELONG, Saturday, March. 10. A very quiet business in breadstuffs done during the week. cPrices show every sign of f...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, March 10. A special reporter of the Register, having visited the new rush at Bigg's Flat, near Echunga, says that the auriferous ground appears to be limited in extent., but the prospects are good. A large rush is unad. visable. In the reserved insolvency case of W. G. Luxmore, the Supreme Ciourt-granted a second.class certificate. The performance of Madame Angot was abruptly terminated before the quarrel scene last nig:it, owing to Miss Lewis leav ing the stage consequent upon a difference with Miss Lambert.

CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Camperdown Chronicle — 13 March 1877
CRICKET. As s w previously arranged, th match between the first and second elevens, the former of whom played with pickhandles, was played on the local ground on Satur. a day last, and resulted in a victory for the first eleven by 27 runs. The juniors were sent to the wickets first, but aone of them c made any stand against the fasret bowling of c Henry and P. Tait, both of whom were in fine form. Eight of their wickets fell for 9 runs, and the total score was only 16. The second innings was an improvement, princi ally owing to the good stand made by ussell. In the first innings of the "pick- I handlers," none of them made any stand ( excepting Thornton, who went in second I and carried out his bat. In their seeond J innings, however, they appeared more at home with the pickhandle, and quickly ran up the score of 42, A. Scott making 12 f including a hit for 6. It is needless to say a that the " haves" of being bowled enjoyed by the seniors were very numerous. Alto. gether the match ...

VICTORIAN RACING CLUB. THIRD DAY. SATURDAY, MARCH 10. The annual autumn meeting of the above club was finished on Saturday last, when the attendance, though not in excess of th; peevious days, was very good. Tht threotaniug appearance of the weather caused numbers to stay away, and the fears of a storm were verified, after the New. market Handicap had been run, as the rain came down in torrents, accompanied by a heavy thunderstorm. The rain continued during the afternoon, and this marred the pleasure of the day. With the exception of Pride of the Hills and Sheriff, no favorites won, the fielders having the best of it throughout. In the steeplechase, horses slipped and fell and baulked at nearly ever) fency, making it a chapter of accidents from beginning to end. The results of the racing are as follows : NURSERY HANDICAP. Mr. W. B. Rounsevell's Device ... 1 Mr. H. J, Bowler's Waterford ... 2 Mr. C. Wilson's Portrait ... ... 3 Eighteen started, of which Darriwell wa the favorite, but...
