AT YA CKANDANDAH. The Commission arrived at Yack andandah by the contractor's train at 3 p.m., and proceeded to the Shire Hall. Evidence was then taken with reference to the proposed extension from Yackandandah to Dederang. Henry Richardson, president of the tohire of x ackandandah, said that j from the first agitation for a railway I from Beechworth, it was proposed to | extend the line to Kiewa and the : Mitta Mitta, but now that the exten sion had been made to Tallangatta the line to Kiewa was up longer re quired, and they looked to the Dede rang extension to open up the country in the Upper Kiewa, /which was really excellent land. The trade from Dederang was always with Yackandandah, and by tapping- the Upper Kiewa ^increase of traffic should be ^ittauied. In answer to the Chairman he replied that he ^6uT'es as toj-opulation.

Subjects for Thought [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 March 1891

Subjects for Thought. Each individual owes a duty to society to exert an influence against evil doing, and he cannot ignore it with impunity. One of tbe most powerful of human influences is that of a popular opinion. Every one respects it, and in greater or less decree is led by it, consciously or unconsciously. Whether as a restraint or an incentive, it is ever actively moulding the conduct of the community. But what is popular opinion I £t is nothing more than the aggregate of in dividual opinion, pnd it ia made manifest only by the frank expression of each indi vidual in various and characteristic ways. It is not an outside something which we can take in and aualyse and discuss, for each one of us is daily contributing his or her share to its formation. We cannot rail at it for being frivolous or cruel or fickle or entrust* worthy without in a degree condemning ourselves in the same direction. What, ever be its character, we must each accept a measure of responsibility in having ...

AT MYRTLEFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 March 1891

AT MYRTLEFORD. In the evening the Standing Com mittee took evidence at Myrtleford. Mr Kaighan gave evidence. He held land in the Upper Kiewa, He and 2 others residing in the Upper Kiewa were appointed a deputation to wait upon the Minister of Railways to advocate a line from Myrtlerord in stead of from Yackandandah, as they thought the connection with the North-Eastern line at Wangaratta would be more direct. The whole of that valley was thickly settled. The land from Dederang up was worth | just as much as the Gippsland land ! selling at L20 per acre to-day. When i the cattle-owners of that district | heard that a line was to be taken | around Yackandandah, it was viewed j with alarm. Albury would not be of any use to that district as a market: ! There was plenty of timber in that district suitable for mining, &c. The line to Dederang should not be more expensive than that to Bright, and it only cost L4000 per mile. Did not think any of the people would be will ing to give ...

At Dederang. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 March 1891

At Dederang. On Wednesday morning the. Com mittee proceeded to Dederang. On the way they visited Mr McKenzie's homestead, where they were shown a fine orchard, a large number of apple trees being heavily laden. The mem bers were greatly impressed with the value of the land in this district for j fruit growing, and the general feeling I was that it was a pity so much fruit should be allowed to go to waste, whilst it would be so much appre ciated in Melbourne. They were I shown the route of the railway, the i fact was pointed out that Mudgegonga was only six miles distant from the line near Kinching ton's Creek, and the so-called inferior land pointed out. The members seemed to think ' that our inferior land was not at all bad. At Glen Creek they were taken by Mr. Haig to his Glen Creek Boiler Mills. The mill was in full swing, and the working of the turbine wheel, and the mill generally was thoroughly explained by Mr Haig. The Com missioners were greatly impressed with the compactnes...

AN ARCTIC PHANTOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 March 1891

AN ARCTIC PHANTOM. By J. W. Henderson. It was in January, and we were in latitude 15deg. 24min. south. The heat was beyond description, for we were lying becalmed under   a tropical sun. The sea was a deep sap- phire blue, trantlucent to a mysterious depth, so that, leaning over the rail, one could see bits of gayly tinted sea-weed float- ing far below the surface. Occasionally a brown fish, looking purple through the glorifying water, would shoot close to the ship   the long undulation of the swell seemed like thedeep psnUnge cf a heat txppreseed 'boeem.- The horizon -was lost in a dim gray- haze that quivered with the radiant heat, and give everything an appearance oi melting. The pitch in the eeama of the deck was soft and sticky. Sammy Scurles, the seennd mate, declared that cn the forecaBtle deck the pitch was boiling. We were aboard the ship Afton Falls, homeward bound from the Cspa of Good Hope. Fred Meredith and I were taking a long sea-voyage for t...

Mining Nuggets. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 7 March 1891

Mining Nuggets.       --------:o:---------         Messrs Jinks and Alexander last week crushed at Messrs Oats , and party's mill, Rocky Point, a parcel of 10 tons of stone from a newly dis- covered reef situate about two miles west of the Junction, for the hand- some return of 43 ozs. 3dwts. of smelted gold. The reef, which has been sunk upon to a depth of but   18ft., is 4in. wide, and the crushing taken out was the result of four 'weeks' work for two men. It has   been appropriately christened the Golden Bracelet, and as equally good stone as that taken out is in sight, the discovery is a most valuable one.   While engaged in sluicing the surface Messrs. Jinks and Alexander came upon the reef, and they have another in the vicinity not yet opened out, but which has been traced for a length of 70ft. They had to cut a road to cart the stone to the mill ; ...
