The Next Struggle. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
The Next Struggle. [BTCIUMB.] IT ii mora than probable that before many weeks and certainly before the close of the present year, and before there is any steps taken to make provi- sion for the "Finances of the year 1890, there will be a dissolution of Parliament and an appeal to the people of the colony. Already the opposing poli- tical parties are putting on their war paint, and preparing for the ' campaign. The Free-trade and Liberal party has held its conference, and its plat- form has been:formulated and heralded forth by speakers of no mean rank as politicians and orators, and of the blass of leaders in pnblic thought who possess a very considerable amount of influence in leading public opinion up to the standard'they have .et up. The Protection (Australian and Country) party are about holding ; similar gatherings, and will doubtless place its views before the public and set up its standard, while others (possessed of no less ability as politicians and orators) will be found c...

Political and Social Letter. [WRITTEN SPECIALLY FOR THE EXAMINER.] SYDNEY, SATURDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
Political and Social Letter. [WHITTEN SPECIALLY FOB THB EXAMINEE,] SYDNEY, SATURDAY EVENING. THE report has been circulated, and there maybe some truth in it, that as soon as the Parliament goes into recess the Ministry will try to get a dissolution. It is said they are going to represent to LOBD CABBINGTON, that in consequence of both parties in-the Assembly being about equal in regard to numerical strength, legislation will be impossible in the present Parliament, and that, therefore, another general election should' take place. Colour Í3 given to that report by the activity that has been recently displayed by the Free-trade Association, and it may be that the object for holding their conference and accompany- ing meetings was to prepare for such an event as that described. I am in a position to say that the Free-traders believe they would have a better j chance of success if an appeal to the country took place say next month, than if it happened after the harvest, and it is not u...
The Danger of Water Filters. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
The Danger of Water Filters. IN a seríes of experiments with water niters reported to the Rhode Island Medical Society, Dr. G. T S warts has presented certain facts which are opposed to the general belief regarding the value and effic- iency of filtere as commonly used in the household for tile purification of drinking water, and which from their important bearing on health, are believed to be worthy of more general recognition. There suite obtained prove that some filters when first used successfully remove a certain proportion of organ- isms from the water. Other teste made seventeen days later showed in every case a marked increase ia the number of colonies in the filtered as compared with unfiltered water. For instance, the unfiltered water contained 36 colonies of growth, while the filtered water showed the presence of colonies to the number of 2000, 9000, and 10,000. An .lamination on the seventieth day showed an in- crease in the case of one filter of 117,000 colonies. Anothe...
E. Muybridge's Photographs of the Horse. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
j E. Muybridge's Photographs of - the Horse. " THE Saturday Seriem, in a sympathetic notice of Eadweard Muybrïdgë's work on animal locomotion, thus disposes of the controversy provoked by Mr. Mnybridge's first efforts to represent accurately the movements of horses. " His exposition of the horse and his paces-novel and surprising as they are in some phases-shows very clearly that the Greek sculptors and the old masters in painting I were not, after all,' so grossly inaccurate as has been maintained. It is easy to deride the false attitudes of the horses of the Parthenon frieze, or ; the modern painter's horse in full speed, with all MB feet off the ground. The old masters, by the way, generally knew better.. There is one at least of Mr. Muybridge's photographs of the horse and his rider that ÍB vividly suggestive of the Parthenon frieze, and might have served the sculptor admirably as a sketch for his work. After all is said, art has to deal with impressions in representing horses. ...
THE CLARENCE P. AND A. SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
I : THE CLARENCE P. AND A. SOCIETY. THE Agricultural Society having again put on its working apparel for the current year by the selection of ita General and Executive Committees, it is to be hoped that no time will be lost in shewing useful results. There are many subjects to deal with in order to meet all the demands the public has up*n such an institution. The Flower Show has to be arranged for and carried out. To do so there is but limited time at disposal, if the horticultural pro- ducts of the district are to be seen at their best. Then ploughing matches are suggested. A desire has been expressed that more than one of those exhibitions should be held. Ulmarra has been sug- gested, also Copmanhurst. The arrangements for the annual Exhibition of 1890 have to be made, the chief being the issue of the programme at as early a date aa possible, and the settlement of that troublesome question of judging. These are mattera that ought not to be left over too long. Then besides these-fo...
PRACTICAL LEGISLATION NEEDED. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
. PBACTICAL LEGISLATION NEEDED.. THIS reference to Irrigation bringa forcibly to mind the waste of valuable time in respect to practical legislation. The continual squabbling between "the ina" and "the outs," and the unnecessary discussions over Free-trade and Protec- tion, are hindering all true progress. The country requires very much in domestic legislation. If that legislation was dealt with in a proper manner, all trouble over Free-trade and Protection would disappear, and the tide of prosperity would set in. Every district in the colony requires Local Gov- ernment, and certainly this district is not the least so in that respect. The country also needs much to be done in legislation upon national lines, pro- motive of internal prosperity. But if there is any measure that this district, in common with many others, requires outside the two named, it is a comprehensive measure dealing with Irrigation and Drainage. There is a so-called Drainage Act ou the statute book, but it was l...
Echoes and Opinions. IRRIGATION IN ITS RELATION TO THE PASTORAL INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
Echoes and Opinions. IBBIGATION m ITS RELATION TO THE PASTOBA1 INDTJSTBY. MB. H.Q. M'KiNNET, O.B., whose pamphlet on "The Rivers of N.S.W." we recently referred to, has been reading a very interesting paper before the Royal Society "on Irrigation in ita relation to the Fastoral Industry of New Sonth Wales." In deal- ing with this important question, .Mr.- M'Einney pointed out that .while the extent of land in this colony under cultivation was only about 1,012,000 acres, 168,000,000 were devoted to pastoral pur- poses, hence the necessity for getting the best return from the use of that land. It waa pointed out that this could be , done by irrigation. In support of the views submitted, it was shown that droughts not only caused actual loss to stock, but largely affected the quality nt -the colony's staple product-wool. Two modes of irrigation were propounded. Dealing particularly with the Mur- rumbidgee, it was pointed out that there was sufficient water running to waste at Hay as wo...
The Antwerp Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
* The Antwerp Disaster. 1 LONDON, SUNDAY.-The latest informa jtion regarding the explosion at Antwerp [ states that.it killed 300, and wounded 1000 persons. 200 girls employed at the factory i were eitherkiïled or seriously injured. I The' explosion felt like an earthquake, and every window in Antwerp was broken, including the Cathedral Tower, which is expected to fall. The flames were visible at Brussels, a distance of 25 miles. The cranes along the wharves are in ruins, and shipping were only saved by the wind blowing in an opposite direction. Soldiers called out to preserve order were suffocated by the flames from the petroleum mills. Buildings covering upwards of Ave acres were destroyed. ,:
FOREIGN INSURANCE SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
FOREIGN INSURANCE SOCIETIES. THE plea put iu by the defendant company in the case of Davis v. The Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States, was a very dangerous one in view of future business.- Such a plea undoubtedly opens the eyes of the public as to the risk run in doing business with foreign institutions of the Insurance class. Not long since a Fire Insurance Company which has recently been push- ing its business rather extensively in the colonies, on being sued upon a policy appears to have lodged a somewhat similar plea. That plea, if we mistake not, was to the effect that, as the company was not incorporated in the colony, the plaintiff would have to proceed against the individual shareholders. This was done by an English company. The judge so strongly animadverted on the chraacter of the plea, showing what a wicked attempt it was to shuffle out of testing the merits of the plaintiff's claim, that the company's representative was led to withdraw it. This more rec...

A MALICIOUS ACT.-On Sunday night last some person or persons stove in the boats of Messrs. W. Tyson and 0. Redman, farmers living on the north bank of the river opposite Fernmount. No reason can be assigned for such dastardly work, and it is to be hoped the culprit or culprits will shortly be brought to book and taught a severe lesson. £10 reward is offered, and the police are on the alert. SCHOOL OF ARTS.-The Committee of the School of Arts, Stratford (Boat Harbor) decided to expend £15 in furnishing the library with interesting and useful literature. Two gentlemen were appointed t...

Improved Maize Planter.-Mr. G. A. Jordan, of Queen-street, has effected further improvements in the corn-dropper patented by him. The apparatus is adjusted to the ordinary plough by a single bolt through the beam, near the foot, which, acting as a pivot, causes the machine to rest on the spiked wheel at the other end, ensur- ing certain action, no matter at what depth the plough may be running. This is an advantage so far not attained by ordinary, droppers. The spiked wheel runs in the furrow alongside the handles of the plough, is a foot in diameter, and by means of a connection of the 'crank principle, regulates the dropping. By means of a rod the ploughman, from his position, can raise the machine, and pre- vent it dropping when turning at headlands, or while running the plough empty. At a trial made on Saturday on Mr. O'MaUey's farm, near the Hospital, the dropper worked satisfactorily, per- forming its work with accuracy and regularity. Literary and Debating.-The weekly meeting...

Applicant is' thus. enabled to put in his application at Lions- ville, which he was informed was the proper place to lodge it.
THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ESTABLISHED 1859.] TUESDAY MORNING, 10TH SEPTEMBER, 1889 THE LOAN ESTIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 10 September 1889
THE Clarence and Richmond Examiner. [ ESTABLISHED 1859.] TUESDAY MOKNING, 10TH SEPTEMBEE, 1889 THE LOAN ESTIMATES. "WE cannot entirely congratulate the Grov ernment on their Loan Estimates. Those estimates are no doubt wisely devised to please the Free-trade party of Sydney, and to secure wavering votes. It is the old game, concentrating expenditure and labour in and around Sydney. This may be seen in relation to sewerage alone, for which and metropolitan water supply not less than £1,8G0,453 is proposed to be raised. Out- side, however, of this centralisation phase of the Estimates there is altogether too much of a desire manifest in the Estimates before us to shirk the responsibility of imposing additional taxation to meet current expendi- ture, or to introduce a more economical sys- tem of Governmental administration. To erado either one or other of those courses, or perhaps both, the Government propose to cast upon Loan Funds the cost of construct- ing works the burden of which ...

The Woodburn crossing is. to be deepened to 10 feet at low water. DEATH.-Mr. James M'Donough, of Blakebrook, died on Thursday, leaving a wife and ...
