Glen Innes. SEPTEMBER 2. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

Glen Innes! ~~ _ _ SEPTEMBER 2. I The Railway Commissloners.-These gentlemen arrived from Sydney last week, accompanied by our Mem- bers, and after receiving a deputation here anent railway matters they proceeded to Inverell. On the way over numerous tin and goods laden teams were passed, and each teamster WBB asked details as to his destination and other mattera. The local leagues were asked for information respecting trade, traffic, ire, and this was found to be rather below what the Commissioners were supplied with from official sources. They returned by another route, and expressed themselves astonished at the dimensions of the trade from Inverell to this town. Our citizens feel san guise that the Commissioners report will be favourable to I the construction of a Glen Innes-Inverell line. At Inverell " the Commissioners were assured that the area under culti ¿vaíion would be considerably augmented if the line were ?constructed, as the land on either side of the line was well ?ad...

The Sculling Championship. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

i - The Sculling Championship. . THE race between Searle and O'Connor takes place on the Thames on Monday. The start is fixed for 1.15 p.m., and in that case the result should he known in Australia about 3 o.m. on Tuesday.' When the last mail left Searle was doing work hy himself, Matterson being unwell. Some of the Thames watermen expressed the opinion that the Champion was'doing too much work, and others thought he was doing too much boating and hot enough land exercise: but Searle being young, he can possibly.stand an amount of work that, would knock up ah older mon. (' O'Connor does long walks, and only goes on the river once a day. Both are very confident of victory, but O'Connor hos admitted that the Champion is a better man than he expected to see. Spoimiro LIFE says J-"The Canadian's style of sculling is that of most Americans «ho come over here, the principal work being done with the legs and arms, with scarcely any body swing. In fact, so for ns I have seen at present he h...

Letters to the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

[ Letters to the Editor. 1 Tai Editor does not bold himself responsible for opinions expressed by correspondents. SIB.-I should not again trouble you only for the gross mis- statements mada by "Veracious," "Rebut," »nd '? Argumen- tum," &c The information which "Voracious" hu so willingly giren to me, BE the signature* to form a petition, j is perfectly correct, that this petition was signed by Smith's Creek, Stockyard Creek, and the Whiteman Creek, and as I said before, by nearly all the heads of families on Copman- hurst, with tba exception of about fire. Now, sir. I ask where did the names from counter petition come from? He says Eaton Creek bridge is covered with backwater before there is any danger of a flood. Now, the last flood which was in Prince-street, Grafton, was only six feet above the new bridge, which proves the fallacy of that statement ; and the residents on low grounds had removed long before it reached this height I might odd that the stores, hotel, public...

PAEKES' SPEECH ON LIBERALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

PAEKES' SPEECH OîT IIBEBALISSI. SOME of the Sydney journals are rather severe upon Sir HENEY PAEKES in relation to his great speech on Liberalism, delivered before the Free- ware Conference. As a joker Sir Henry is not always a success. It is therefore not to be wondered at that when he (.the Premier of the country, representing for the time Free-traders and Protec- tionists alike) dares to apply a stupid joke to those who do not agree with him, the propriety of his conduct should- be called in question even by those who do not agree with him on fiscal" matters. It is remarked thai holding the position he does, Sir Henry Parkes should deal with a question of principle on its merits or demerits, without the introduction of stale jokes, personal or_ general, levelled at those who do not agree with him. It is also pointed out that Sir Henry's egotism is immeasurably greater than that of his rivals in politics. Some people think that there is very much to warrant this egotistical superi...

HOW IS IT DONE? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

HOW IS IT DONE ? A CORRESPONDENT writing to the Lismore ' Chronicle, detailing his adventures on a trip from Lismore to Byron Bay, says :-" Turning to the right into the Byron Bay road, we passed the three line selections belonging to Mr. GAltVAN, near which mtwh road making is being done." How is it done 1 The same writer Bpeaks of other parts lines of traffic through the Big Scrub as being in a very bad state. Why should much road-making be done near Mr. Garvan's selections, while other parts are neglected, is a question that Mr. EWING will possibly be in a position to explain. The same correspondent says that he wa3 disappointed on approaching the famous Bay, " the land being I either sandy or marshy, and covered with a sort of I coarse reed, like grass, and stunted, uselesB kind of shrub." He considers, however, that though there ia a quantity of useless land in the vicinity of the Bay, it could be made available as a shipping port by expenditure of public money, in making it a ...

Death of Alderman Murray. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

Death of Alderman Murray. IT is with much regret we have to record the death of Alderman ARCHIBALD MURRAY, an old and highly respected resident of Grafton. The deceased has been suffering for some months past, and not long since received leave of absence from his Aldermanic duties on account of illness. He leaves a widow, and we believe one daughter by a former marriage. Mr. Murray was one of the earliest of the pioneers in developing the goldfields of the Northern districts of New South Wales. Of these districts he had a most intimate knowledge, gained by exploration and the vicissitudes of a gold miner's life. He took up his residence in Grafton about the year 1864, and at that time having a moderate competency, he very speedily identified himself with public movements ; taking an intel- ligent and active part in all with which he became associated, especiaUy those having for their aim the promotion of local and national prosperity. He was one of the earliest and most active suppo...

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Lismore, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

Latest Colonial Telegrams. Lismore, Friday. MB. E. BEETSON, Public school teacher at Gundur- imba, near Lismore, died very suddenly this morning. The Rev. Mr. Lewin (Wesleyan) intimated last Sunday that he intended to resign his charge at Ballina. Sydney, Thursday. A MEETING at the new Masonic Hall yesterday to raise funds for the dock strikers was a great success. Captain Broomfield and Mr. Forsythe, the treasurers, will cable £1000 as a first instalment for relief to-day. Adelaide cables £500, Victoria £3000, Brisbane and Hobart large amounts. At a meeting in Brisbane presided over by the Mayor, £500 was subscribed in the room. Three men while crossing the Murray at Albury nearly lost their lives through swamping of their boat. The great will case has been settled ; Mr. Willis consenting to the will being revoked, and the property given to Mrs. Swift, mother of the testator, and her granddaughter. Letters of administration were granted in the estate of Edward Natter for £3789. The...

Commercial. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

Commercial. THURSDAY wa3 a busy day at the Lands Office, arni 3381 acres -were alienated, chiefly on the south sido of the river. 2059 acres were selected, and 1322 acres taken under con'litional lease, the deposits amounting to £209 Gs 5d. A number of portions were taken on the special areas on the Upper Orara, for agricultural purposes. The ballot had to decide tho suc- cessful applicant in four cases. For portion 80, parish of Coff, there were four applicants ; six for portion 20, Wonga Wanga : and three each for the blocks selected by J. J. Corcoran and G. Kelly. The reason for the unusual number of applicants was the fact of some 23 forfeited selections becoming available for re-selecting this month, some of which hive not yet been taken up. This iä the largest area alienated in ona week for a considerable time, and a better demand has evidently set in forland. The stock sales on Tuesday were not largely attended, but Wednesday's sales on the south side passed off satisfactoril...

THE CLARENCE SYSTEM OF RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

THE CLARENCE SYSTEM OP HALLWAYS. OUR old friend Mr. J. G. O'RYAN has heen address- ing the people of the country through the columns of the Daily Tcleqrajrft, on the Clarence system of railways. Mr. O Ryan graphically describes the causes for, and the history of, the agitation up to the present time upon this great question. He brings out most clearly the main points in favour of the Clarence system of railways, and the improve- ment of the port of the Clarence, without which the scheme will not be complete. Not only does he however, urge in forcible language the old- argu- ments, and the claims of the Northern part of the colony to these national works ; but he ably arid skillfully combats the statements made by those who oppose them right out, and that larger class, who knowing nothing of the great interests involved, merely shrug their shoulders at the men- tion of the estimated cost and say '*It can't be done," Some of those objections rest upon the idea that the establishment o...

There was a large and representative attendance, the hall being well filled. The MAYOS (Mr. See) said he was invited to take the chair, and expressed his pleasure at doing 80, though there waa no need to introduce Mr. Bawden, for he was well known to every person who had the interest of the district at heart. He waa no amateur on the subject he had chosen ; he waa one of the first in the field to advocate a system of railways from the Clarence northwards and westwards. They claimed a right to look after what they were entitled to, and also if a wrong was perpetrated they had a Bimilar right to step in and defend themselves. Mr. Bawden wou...

THE EVILS OF OVER-PAMPERING SIRES [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 7 September 1889

THE EVILS OF OVER-PAMPERING SIRES COMPLAINTS are very rife in some districts, especially among Shire-bred horse breeders, of tho great number of barren mares', and this is generally attributed to the artificial existence ; to the over* fattening, and over-forcing of the high-class sires whoso services are now so much in request. Theso pampered nnimals, partly bocauso of the exigencies of the show-ring, partly because in full condition they are most likely to attract customers, and partly from a mistaken notion of "getting them up for their work," aro put to stud duties when physically totally unfit for their due per- formance ; hence tho disappointing results. The only three of my intimate acquaintances I have yet spoken to on tho subject all tell the same tale. " I cannot breed a colt now-a days. I don't know what has come to thom," Baid one, with rare good stud of mares, all in healthy breeding condi- tion. " My mares cost mo nearly £15 last year in fees and expenses, and both are...
