Mr. Abigail and Mr. Want's Patent Fees. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

Mr. Abigail and Mr. Want's Patent Fees. It is a question whether the country is not having something too much of political talk. The stage has long since been passed when speeches were required either from tho Government in defence of their policy, or from the Opposition in attack upon it. Nothing new can be said by the latter in exposure of tho misdoings of Ministers, and consequently there is nothing new that can be said in reply. When once the country has clearly apprehended the issues between the two parties further talk can only have an embittering and confusing effect. Saturday night witnessed a tremendous outpouring of extra-parliamentary ora tory. No fewer than three Ministers spoke, and at least one would-be Minister, Mr. Abigail, also turned on the taps of his verbiage. Practically nothing that was not said before was uttered by any one of the quartette, unless we make an exception with respect to Mr. Abigail, aud his reference to Mr. Want's Patent fees. And this reference...

The late Steamboat Disaster, Advices from Boat Harbour state that the first trace of wreckage of the Keilawarra was found seven miles south of CofFs Harbour and 15 miles south of Solitaries. It was a piece of pine plank ing about 10 feet long 18 inches wide, with a capital A on the end of the block. Also several pieces light timber painted brown, like the cabin fittings. A por tion of the steamers' side-light box, painted white. Several steamers and sailing vessels still cruising north of' Solitaries, about five miles from shore. Two bodies have been found, one by Mr. Alfred Skinner at Small's, four miles north of Coff's Harbour. He saw the body coming ashore in breakers, and watched. It had no boots on, only a common shirt, collar and drawers. Tho body is like that of a sailor. Mr. Atkin found the other body at ' Lookat me-now ' headland, four miles north of Moonee Creek.

A Challenge. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

A Challenge. The disloyal sentiments uttered by Mr. Bailes, a representative of Sandhurst in the Victorian Legislative Assembly, ap pear to have attracted the attention of one who is prepared to shed his blood in the cause of Royal ty. The name of this doughty knight has not transpired ; but we learn from a Melbourne paper that he has sent a letter to Mr. Bailes containing a challenge to mortal combat. The hon. member is invited to meet him any morning about 5 o'clock in the Bichmond Paddock to fight a duel, either with pistols or with buttonless foils. The hon. member would recognrse the challenger by a romantic head-dress formed by a combination of felt hat and red feathers. If Mr. Bailes failed to put in appearance before Sunday (yester day) the gallant unknown gentleman threatened to vindicate the Prince against his slanderer by means of a horsewhip, at the steps of Parliament HouseB on the first opportunity, j Man is a land animal, and Henry George is proclaiming the fact to th...

How to Salt Butter. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

How to Salt liu.ter. The American Live Stock Journal says : — The proper way to salt butter is to stop the churns' when the granules are of the size of mustard seed, or at most not larger than wheat kernels. Then wash all the buttermilk out, and let the'butter drain until only the required amount of moisture remains. This point, which will be reached in a greater or less length of time, must be determined by each butter maker for himself. Whatever time is required must be given, and it is not only better but easier to let the butter drain than to spend the time in working out the water to the injury of the grain of the butter. Besides, in any kind of business,- whatever time is required to do it well should be given, and must be given if the best results are to be attained. The man who has not time to do the work should not attempt it. The temperature of the butter should be 55 degrees, or below, for the purpose of salting. It can be reduced to the point after churning by the use of...

Electioneering Tactics. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

Electioneering Tactics. Mr. Abigail, at Cootamundra on Satur day last, related the following incident : Some timo ago it became necessary that 100 of tho unemployed should bo sent to the Menindio Lakes. A great deal of competition took place amongst the captains of ' steamers to get tho freight, and they wired to the Minister for Works, offering to take the men at so much per head. They got no roply from the Minister, but presently a member of Parliament senh a telegram to one of the captains to the following effect ' If I get you the freight, what will you give me?' Tho captain thought that if he could get tho freight without paying commission it would be a better stroke, and he wired to. tho Minister again. No reply came, and then tho captain wired to tho member of Parliament, ' I am prepared to give you a commission of 5 per cent, if you get me the freight.' He received this reply, dated from Parlia ment House : — ' Got your tender ac cepted; particulars telegraphed ; make a quic...

Political Speeches. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

i'ulllical Speeches. Mr; N. Melville, in the course of a speech delivered at 'Wallsend, recently, said that Sir Henry Parkes talked about corruption, but there was not a man who knew how to play that trick more effect t'i'vely than Sir Henry. His brain was getting soft and he did not know what he said. A voice ; 'We don't want scandal but politics. Mr. Melville : If the gentleman who interrupts me knew, ho would not talk about scandal. Parkes had said that they had provided beds for supporters and excluded the Press., but lie would tell them wbat was done in those dark hours of political midnight. They had brought, beds and blankets, . that was perfectly true, and it was also perfectly j true that some of tho Opposition members stole those blankets. There were bottles of Champagne knocking about Parliament and Mr. Neild threw himself on his back and said, 'blast the chair, d ? n the chair.'

A Difficult Question. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

A Difficult Uuestion. There has been some eccentric pro cedure in the Melbourne law courts over ione Carroll, who became possessed, of a watch somewhat irregularly. He was 'tried for the irregularity, and neither judge, jury, nor counsel could quite make up their minds whether he had jbeen convicted or aquitted. So they tried him again, and found him guilty, 'but on appeal it was decided that he ought not to be tried again, but that .he .must be sentenced according to the vverdict of the first trial. As nobody 'Jknew. what the verdict was, the judge ?eould not quite tell what punishment to inflict, and he was equally undecid ' ed abou| discharging him. So, after some- argument in which nothing was - stilled, tlie judge told him to go home, and some day when it was quite convenient to look in again. So, now Mr. Carroll has returned to the bosom of his family, and is probably musiug upon the uncertainty of the law. The police are distracted to know what to do with the watch. If they g...

The Australian Eleven in Bandages. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

The Australian ICleven In Bandages. Considerable comment has been evoked at the extreme length of the Australian tour in England, playing almost without a- break for over four months. As showiug what the team thought of it themselves, a correspondent in England ? sends the -following The eleven are worn out. Jar vis says — ' Don't ask me anything about cricket : I'm sick of it.' Giffen, Garrett, and Palmer are the three fittest ? men in the team physically speaking. Of the rest, Jones has ricked the muscles of his side in throwing, and lie suffers considerably ; Blackham is quite knocked up — ' done,' in fact — though his enthusiasm always shows itself when he plays ; Spofforth has sprained his ankle, in addition to having a dull finger; Scott walks about with a rag round liis hand ; Jar vis has strained Borne ligament, and finds it very painful Jbo bear his weight on his instep ; Bonnor ? hobbles about, wearing af«ce the picture . of woe, and a cold water bandage on his leg ; Trumb...

A Tax on Pianos. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 24 December 1886

A Tux on Pianos. It has been proposed in Paris that a tax be levied on pianos. The sugges tion comes from a gentleman who is himself a musican, and whose motives, therefore, are not open to suspicion on the score of insensibility to ' the divine art ' of which pianos are to be included among the mediums. Certain qualifi cations' are contemplated with regard to the application of the tax. Gover nesses and other persons, whose living may happen to depend on their skill upon the instrument, are to be exempt, but in all cases where a piano is used privately the tax is to be enforced. This course, it is said, is likely to recom ? mend: itself for adoption, from the simple fact that piano playing has developed into an intolerable nuisance, in the city of the Seine. Sympathy with the piano-tortured ears of the Parisians should certainly not be wanting in Sydney, if there be any truth in the assertion as to that feeling which springs from the experience of a com mon infliction. By-the-by, i...
