Newspaper Printing. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 27 March 1894

Newspaper Printing. We take the following from an exchange , — You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local office your general printing ; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give the newspaper your cams, aoa gers, billheads, letterheads, en velopes, and all business print ing to execute. The news paper man needs it, and it helps him pay him pay his printers for setting up t h e thousand and one free notices he gives you and your town ; but don,t give it to the travel ling canvasser who can give you rio such return and is spen ding neither time, money, nor brains in helping you build up your district. The time may come when a newspaper can live simply upon the rovenue derived from adver-, tising and subscriptions, but no ordinary newspaper in any town can exist without aux iliary support derived from general printing. Then, if you want a good newspaper — one that will still further help your town — give it all your printing. Mr Slee th...

The Arithmetic of Drink. SIB ROBERT STOUT'S STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 27 March 1894

'The Arithmetic of Drink. SIR ROBERT- STOUT'S STATISTICS. Mr. E. J. H. Knapp, hon. secretary of the New South Wales Local Option League, quotes copiously from a recent article by Sir Robert Stout under the above heading in the February number of the Review of Reviews, . in which he puts the amount spent in alcohol in the the Australian colonies alone at about £17,000, 000 a year, varying from £3 5s in one colony to £6 in another per man, woman, and child — all spent, he says, in a useless habit. Each colony thus spends on alcohol per year twice as much as it would ven ture to ask a London capitalist j to lend to build railways and make roads. ' Surely', he puts it, ' if it is the function of the State to help industries by giving bonuses to promote the production of cheese, butter, frozen meat, etc., by giving instruction to farmers and having inspectors to as sist them, to provide railways «o that settlement may be stimulated, the State has a right to deal with so terrible a waste ...

An Armidale Man's Opinion of Coolgardie. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 27 March 1894

An Armidale Man's Opinion of Coolgardie. Mr. Charles Jones, an old miner, who for many years worked ' in this district, is now over in Coolgardie, and he writes as follows to Mr. T. Stuart : — 'Now, about Coolgardie, there are about six good cl&imB there. All- tho alluvial about Coolgardie, Hannan'a, and the Nin»tv Milo. is worked nut but it will be a great reefing country. There are several fyiends of mine at the Ninety Mile, and they aro doing fairly well with a two or three head battery. As far as Coolgardie is con cerned, there are only a few payable reofs up to tho present— most of the good things are at Hannan's, the White Feather and the Ninety Mile, but it is impossible to got there for want of water en route. Water is very scarce ; it is selling at Is per gallon at Coolgardie township, and the limit is one gallon per man— itia all condensed water. The Government as well as private parties are condensing, but they cannot do onougli for the crowd there. Out back Linds...

Passing Notes. This the season of shows, and sec-' vetnrieB and committees generally aro to be commiserated. Bain — continu- ous rain— has driven many of them to the verge of despair. One Society has juBt recorded a loss of £100 over its show recently held, and it is by no means alone in its financial tribula tion. Preparations for the Eoyol Ag ricultural Society's exhibition in Syd ney, have been made thi*B year under uncommon difficulties. People are prepared for rain at Easter, for it is the wet season, and usually rains more or less j but this week it has been a teaser. It was the gusty wind as much as the rain, and the secretary and com mittee and everyone connected with the Show are to be congratulated upon their heroic efforts to conquer adverse circumstances.

Killing the Men. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 27 March 1894

Killing the Men. The women have now commenced killing the men in another part of tbe -industrial battlefield. At Woollon gong they have- just succeeded in scaling the heights of the Wesleyan pulpit; from which the male occupant on Sunday evening last was success fully dislodged by a pair of fair inva ders, who preached sermons that aro renorted to have been ouite enual to the average male performance. And why not ? The clergy-woman is sure ly as ''airly en regie in the nineteenth century as the female doctor or law yer. In both these professions the trousers-proud tyranny of the, mono .polistic male has been successfully re belled against. Why the still genteel er profession of the Church has re mained so long unconquered has, therefore, always been a mystery to practical minds. A call to the Eev. Miss Smith would sound quite as well as one to the Eev. Mr. Jones, and we have the testimony of the present case at.Wollorigong to prove that she is equally qualified to do justice to it. ...

THE LAND TROUBLE. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 27 March 1894

THE LAND TROUBLE. lo the Editor. Sir, — Nothing so forcibly illustrates the utter incompotence of tho present parliament as the shameful manner in which tho land question is allowed to remain neglected, despite the pressing urgency for something being done, es pecially in the Central Division, where all save tbe most necessary employ ment lias becomo suspendod by reason of the uncertain and unsecure position in which the pastoral t- nants find themselves. If parliament possessed the requisite practical knowledge or willingness, the whole matter could have been settled long ago by simply adopting the principle of lund classi fication. Once divide the postural and agricultural lands from each other, and there is an end of strife between tbe squatter and selector. But we shall never achieve tliiB result so long as wo allow the land-jobber— in the guise of the farmer's friend — to have a seat in Parliament. Once take awny the facilities now enjoyed by the land jobber, and the cry for In...
