COUNCIL'S AMENDMENTS IN THE LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

COUNCIL'S AMENDMENTS IN THE LAND BILL. Sr.owiiY, very slowly indeed, the Land Bill is pass- ing through the Legislative Council ; but it is receiving a good deal of mangling in its progress. Some of the members of the House think that as adopted by the representative Chamber it is not sufficiently favourable to the squatters, and they are trying to supply what, in their judgment, it needs, to become a satisfactory measure. Mr. BEUNKEB is Tery angry at their conduct, and from what I can learn he will have nothing to do with the majority of the amendments that have been made. From this it would seem that it will be a long time before the Bill receives the signature of the GOVERNOR. In the Upper House there are not many selectors' friends ; but the other Chamber will take good care that the interests of this class are safe guarded. If the Legislative Council does not make more rapid progress with the Bill, and if they should tinker the remaining clauses as much as they have tinkered th...

MR. ABIGAIL AND PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHEES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

MB. ABIGAIL AND PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHEES. MB. ABIGAIL was in great form on Thursday evening on the subject of Roman Catholic teachers in the Public Schools. The only grounds he had to go on for raising the question was what he termed an impression existing abroad. But it ia quite sufficient reason for a bigot to raise the sectarian cry. He insisted that the reports of the Department of Public Instruction should contain a table giving information concerning tho religions creed of the teachers. And Sir HKNBY PARKES endorsed the demand. This is intolerable. It is observable that Mr. Abigail's animosity is directed exclusively against the Catholics. He has nothing to say about the Freethinkers. Now in the ranks of the teachers there are probably aB many of those as of Roman Catholics, and their opinions are more ¡ dangerous, as viewed from the Christian (or rather the orthodox Protestants' standpoint) than those of the followers of the Pope. If therefore, he were concerned for the faith o...

Letters to the Editor. Public Matters. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Letters to the Editor. I THE Editor does sot hold himself responsible (or opinions txpreiied by correspondents. Public Matters. SIB.-"A Working Man" in your issue of Tuesday .writes pretty plain about the little spirit shown hy a number of our business men in matters which affect the welfare of the district, and I hope you will allow me to back up what he says. I have attended all meetings for the public good . which my work would allow, and have assisted pecuniarily as my means would permit, hoping that my presence and my mite (when asked) would be of some service. Now, to be particular, I never Baw my baker at any of those meetings, my butcher once only, and my draper and grocer on but two occasions (monster meetings) ; whereas the man who gets the least ont of me (the parson) is the best attend- ant of the lot. And yet, should I ever chance to have á yarn with one of thenV on subjects which concern the yuille good, they .will sing out loud enough about the way the Government trea...

Political and Social Letter. [WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE EXAMINER.] THE FREE-TRADE PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Political and Social Letter. I f WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOB THE EXAMINER.] THE FEEE-TBADE PABTY. To the Free-trade party the past six days have been j a week of weeks-a period to be remembered. They have had a Conference of Delegates from several parts of the country, and a meeting every night in the Protestant Hall connected therewith. The meetings were held for the edification of the faithful alone, and those of them who attended were probably bnilt up in their most holy faith, and are more than ever convinced that if New South Wales adopts Protection she will go to the dogs. But what is the use of instructing believers 1 What the Free-trade Association should have done was to go into the highways and invite the heathens, the publicans and the fiscal gentiles to their meetings, and try to convert them from the error of their ways.

PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

PROTECTION IN THE UNITED STATES. BY the unanimous consent of the Free-traders, Mr. REID'S speech is regarded as the best of the series that were delivered. It dealt with Protection in America. Now, I have been at great pains to make myself acquainted with the history of Pro- tection in the United States, and I have no hesita- tion in saying that almost from beginning to end the speech was a misrepresentation of the facts. I will mention one glaring instance. Mr. Reid quoted at length from the first annual report of the Labour Bureau in the United States, to prove that things were as bad in America as in any other part of the world. Only one or two copies of that publication came to Sydney, but I managed to secure a copy. Now, at least, a fourth of the book consists of particulars concerning the wages paid in every Americaa State and those paid in several European countries, and they show that wages are about 10 per cent, nigher in America than in the most prosperous European country...

Echoes and Opinions. PROMPITITUDE OF ACTION NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

I Echoes and Opinions. PEOirPTITüDE OF ACTION NEEDED. THE City Railway scheme is not to come ou this Session. The Cabinet, it is said, are divided upon I the question, and especially as regards the Hyde Park proposal. The PREMIER'S influence has pre- vailed in getting the subject shunted upon the partial promise to consider it during the recess. It is not unlikely that the consideration will result in shunting the matter entirely. There is evidently a growing feeling that the extension into the City of a new passenger line is unnecessary. That an improvement of the tram system will answer all passenger purposes, and even much better than a single length of railway. While as for the goods traffic, the Darling Harbour line along the West side of the Harbour to Darling Island will, it is believed, afford for the present all the accommoda- tion reqnired, especially when that accommodation may at some future time be extended round into Johnson's Bay. More than that, the voluminous corres...

Harwood Island. MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Harwood Island. MONDAY. WEATHER.-The showery weather has retarded cultivation. The ground is in a rotten state, owing to so much rain, and horses hare as much as they can do to draw their loads of cane to the punts. If the present state continues, farming operations will be very late. ADDITIONS.-Since last letter, we have an addi- tional store, also a 11 knight of the razors," and a gentleman hailing from your city has started in the boot business ; the latter, I am informed, is shortly to have opposition. A house is in course of erection for one of the trade, who at present is estab- lished in Maclean. Large additions are being made to the Morpeth hotel, the two last buildings being in the hands of Mr. Fraser, and is making rapid progress towards completion. At last our school additions are in a fair way of being finished, the present contractors pushing it on as fast as willing hands can do so. Still, more buildings are to be erected at Garde Terrace, where I am informed two more ...

POLITICAL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

POLITICAL PROSPECTS. I FßOM private, but well-informed, sources, we I gather that the House is not likely to rise until the j end of the present month, The delay in prorogation it is thought, will arise chiefly in connection with i the Council's amendments on the Land Bill. Some ¡ of those are of such a nature as, it is thought, the i Government will not accept. In that case much caution will be necessary to prevent the losing of the measure entirely. Should this occur, the Session will have been a most unprofitable one so I far as practical legislation is concerned. We do ' not know but that, under all circumstances, if it ; might not be better to get rid of the Bill entirely, j for when it is all over it is nothing but patch-work legislation. Another trouble is expected in respect to the Payment of Members Bill. There is a strong impression that the Council will stand to its guns in refusing to accept the measure as applicable to the present Parliament. The majority of the members...

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Sydney, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Sydney, Monday. THE damage done by the floods in Victoria is incalculable. Benalla and other towna were sub- merged. Houses, stock, culverts, and bridges were swept away. Benalla, owing to the gas worka being flooded, was in darkness on Saturday night The selectors are heavy sufferers. The Broken River in places was four miles broad. The Free-trade Association meetings closed on Saturday with an address from Mr. Abigail en- titled " How Protection affects working men." He said the Leader of the Opposition considers he has a wretched crew to lead; while his followers consider they have a wretched leader. Dr. Drinkwater, of Victoria, was found dead in bed, from the effects of an overdose of chloroform. Heavy rains, accompanied by storms, are reported from various country districts. In the Domain, yesterday, Mr. Henry Varley held a monster meeting to express sympathy with the London strikers, and money subscribed waa c ableo to England, together with resoluti...

IN MEMORIAM. SMITH -In sad and yet loving remembrance of the late JOHN SMITH, of Alumny Creek, who died September 4th, 1886. It is three short years to-day, Since our dear father passed away, We nursed him with a loving care. But could not make him stay. The light is from our household gone, One voice we loved is still, A vacant place is in our hearts. That never can be filled. The trial was hard, the sting severe, To part with one we loved so dear, But, we must not weep, nor yet complain, But trust in Heaven to meet again.

Renewal of Youth. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Renewal of Youth. IT has been the study of mankind for ages-prob- ably for all time-to find, if not an tlixir vita, at least a preparation that will prolong life and impart to . the aged something of the vigour and power of enjoyment of youth. The animal, vege- table, and mineral kingdoms have been laid under contribution, and the only result has been that many valuable discoveries in other directions have been made by those engaged in the fruitless search for the elixir. The fountain of perp.tual youth has escaped the search of the most patient inves- tigation, and although many have died with the conviction that the secret was almost Within their grasp, none have reached the goal. Perhaps the most hopeful of all the methods employed or sug- gested was that of introducing into the veins the blood of living animals ; but the drawbacks and dangers were in practice found to exceed the bene- fits. It is upon these lines, however (says the Lon- don Evening Standard), that M. Brown-Séqua...

Bawden will offer at the Ponnd yards about 100 head, most of which are from Queensland. The spring is an unusually early one, and gra=s is growing rapidly, except on the low swamp lands. Cattle are not plentiful, and good prices are expected for some time. Fat cattle are without alteration, but now that the winter is over should be more easily obtained. We notice that tome of the local butchers are reducing their rates. It is stated that another general store is to be opened in town. Retailers have reduced the prices of sugar, and it is not likely to advance again during the crushing season. Maize is slightly firmer, owing to smaller shipments..

Mining. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 3 September 1889

Mining. TUE Cangi goldfield, situate about 30 miles from Copmanhurst, and 40 from Bear Hill and Kooka- bookra reefs, are again attracting attention. The Sir Walter Scott seems to be the principal claim, Messrs. Wilson and Hobson prospectors. On this a shaft 24 feet has been put down, and 40 tons of quartz taken, of an attractive quality. The reef runs S.E. by N.W., showing 2J feet on the surface, widening to about 5 feet 8 inches at the bottom of the shaft. The reef shows gold at a number of places tried, and the outcrop is well defined for a long distance. Some claims are pegged out on the line of reef. The river running near by might be utilised to drive stampers. Butler's reef, the Magpie, inadvertently referred to last week as the Admiral, on the Chandler, changed hands on Wednesday. Two leases of 10 and 12 acres have been taken np alongside, and three tons of stone were sent on Friday from the reef to Sydney to be tested. A correspondent writes :-In consequence of the influx of...
