The Waterworks. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WARWICK ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 24 January 1880

The Waterworks. I TO THE EDITOR OF THE WAHWJCK AUQUB. I Sib,-As an old resident of Warwick, and I ouo who takes a warm interest in its futhcr prosperity, I beg to of era few comments on the so-called Warwiok waterworks-the works which were to confer incalculable ad vantages on the inhabitants of this town. It is now some three and a half years since the first coutract was let for a portion of the reservoir and from present appearances there is every prospect of another threeyears passing before the long looked for boon will be available. Taking a retrospective view of the whole of the works from the Iwgining I find from the esti mates submitted to the council that the total cost of supplying the town as far as Wood* ; street was to have been a trifle under £10,000; and tho corporation, feeling satisfied that the I Government were in a position to carry out tho works-having a presumed competent i staff of officials-consented to their con struction undw Government supervision. Mark th...

Nobbling the Press at Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 24 January 1880

Nobbling the Press at Sydney. IF the Sydney Press quietly submit to the recent attempts to encroach on their liberties, some of them, at least, are made of different stuff to what we anticipated. Personally the represen tatives of newspapers will fee! that they owe a debt of gratitude to those officials who directed their exclusion from Dar linghurst gaol during the execution of SCOTT and KOOAN on Tuesday morn ing. We have too frequently expe rienced the pain initiated through witnessing these disgusting spectacles, without desiring for a momeut to be entertained to one more, but if occasion unhappily arose, we should not flinch from the duty, in justice to our readers. When the measure was passed in the Oommons abolishing public executions, it was carefully pointed out- that the public would be fully advised of every thing that occurred through the Press, whose representatives would bo ad mitted on application. Matters went on satisfactorily for some time, but presently certain gen...

Sir Ralph Gore, Bart. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WARWICK ALGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 24 January 1880

Sir Ralph Gore, Bart. I TO THE EDITOR OF THE WABWICK ACQU6, SIB,-It has surprised ma much to find that none of the newspapers have noticed the scandalous comment in the Maryborough Chronicle, anent Sir Ralph Gore's promotion. The Chronicle makes it appear that Sir Balph Gore has proved himself incompetent as a public servant, and suggests that bo has been pitchforked in to the post of Imigration Agent and Polynesian Inspector. Now, Sir, so ijross a mis-stateinent is contrary to fact, for Sir Balph Gort) has acquitted himself in his previous appointments with marked judgment and energy, and his recent promotion was entirely earned by merit; althrough it must be confessed that bis attainments lit him for u higher post than that of Imigration Com missioner at Brisbane. 8urely the writer of the waspish paragraph in the Chronicle inust have had a strong personal bias against the unoffending Baronet, who has never given himself any of those airs which are generally attributed to men of ar...

The doming Show. TO THK ED1TOU OF THE WARWICK ARGUS. Sin,-A. wish has been widoly expressed to the effect that the Shaw on WeduoBday next should be kept open in the evening, in order to meet the convenience of people who cannot from a variety o£ onuses attend during the day. It Is to be. regretted that this wish was not given expression to before, but perhaps it might not be too lato now for tie acting committee to consider the matter. Of coarse tbo lighting might be easily provided economically and efficiently. For tho pro tection of exhibit a few constables could be put on duty during the presence of the public, and a watchman could be hired for the night.

The Waterworks and Streets. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WARWICK ARGUS. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Argus — 24 January 1880

The Waterworks and Streets. TO TDK EDITOR OF THB WARWICK ARGUS. Sir,-1 find that Mr. Macrossau baa pro mised to consider tho question of opening up three ot the streets which have been closed in consequence of the railway works, I hope he is not going ti evade the matter, or keep us in suspense very long, otherwise the ratepayers interested in the Eastern part of the town will demand that our councillors take the law into their own hands. Then again, lie has promised not to hand over tho Waterworks until they are put in proper repair. Why it is simply disgraceful to find that after so much money has been spent we have a rjsorvoir which showR a very considerable leakage. It strikes me forcibly that it will require a larger sum to remedy the leak, than many people appear to imagine, not excepting Mr. Macrossau, and I warn our Council to look to two points in this very bungling business-firstly, to take measures to see that the breach in the reservoir is well and truly repaired; and, s...

Mr. Clarke is an old and I believe successful tradesman, commencing life many years ago as a storekeeper in the premises now occupied by Mr. Gilblett, in Fitzroy street. He is a person of the highest character for uprightness, and his moral character is such that any man might very well envy. A man with such splendid ante cedents, apart from his being a large rate- payer, is in my opinion a fit and proper person to watch the interests of his fellow ratepayers.
