LATEST SPECIAL TELEGRAMS, SYDNEY. Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

LATEST SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. [From tiie Press Telegraph Association.] SYDNEY. Monday. The weather to-de,y, although somewhat threaten ing in the early morning, turned out beautifully fine, all places of amusement being well patro nised. _ At Eandwick the attendance fully reached anti cipations, but backers received another blow by Nightingale's victory. There was an enormous attendance at the High land Gathering. By eleven o'clock the grandstand and flat were already well peopled. Among the crowd the ladies predominate. The once popular custom of wearing tartan ribbons does not appear to be observed by the ladies to-day. Men in the kilt, however, make up for the lack of Highland colour ing. Perhaps for the first time in the history of the Eociety in New South Wales, this is the firslj occasion on which the Governor for the time being was not present, and his absence caused a- considerable amount of disappointment among those interested on its being understood that Sir Eoberb Duff had d...

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

ECHOES 0E SPOET. The Victorian Railway Commissioners hcivo decided to reduce the rates for the conveyance of horses to race meetings. The usual mile rate of Gd for a single horse will not bo altered, but the minimum rate of £1 will, however, be reduced from tho beginning of tho year to 10s. The practice with trainers is to send three horses in a box to a suburban meeting, and a great reduction will bo made to meet them. The old mile rate of Is 3d for three horses will remain intact. Tho minimum, however, will be reduced from 40a to 20a. It is rumoured in Melbourne that several of the principal bookmakers there intend transferring themselves and belongings to this colony, with a view to permanent residence. The names men tioned include that of Mr. M. Jacobs; Cricketers know their scripture, and apply it, though with not quite tuc thoroughness of the Scotch theologian — who can justify anything in the world with a text more or less allegorical. When the captain of the Sydney tnam came...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WHAT IS A STARVATION WAGE ? (To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WHAT IS A STARVATION WAGE ? (To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury.) Sir, — I am afraid that I must again join issue with you ai to your remark that you do call .£95 a year a 'starvation wage ' for a man with a- family. When you consider that in the case in point only 207 working days were included, and that there fore the man had fully another 75 days in the year during which he might have employed himself to some profit, say in his own garden or for others, the question of starvation appears more remote than ever. I have no hesitation in saying that ,£95 per annum or 36s 6d a week represents far more than the average rate of wage ob tainable by any body of labourers in the ad joining colonies or New Zealand. In the latter colony the amount of solid comfort which is at tained by the working men in receipt of a Bteady 'Os per day would astonish most Australians. It is only a question of thrift, a quality which I regret ^ to say appears very deficient in this c...

Newcastle Races. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

Newcastle Kaces. (From our own Reporter.) A regatta was not held in Newcastle to-day for the first time in many years, and the Newcastle Jockey Club reaped the benefit of this omission, for the attendance at its race meeting was large, desnite the counter attraction of the cricket match. The day wis beautifully fine, but somewhat too warm to be pleasant to those who boast of too solid flesh. The track was in good order, and the racing very fair, but the results were in favour of the bookmakers, although there was very little wager ing in comparison with former gatherings, and many well-known figures were absent from the busy scene. The conduct of the reunion was all that could be desired, and as usual Mr. Chippindall, the energetic secretary, found time to be genial and obliging.

Brown had posted a notice on the pit top3 offering the miners 3a 2d pet ton for the ensuing year. The news caused . satisfaction, as it was thought that tha firm intended to close the colliery unless the miners ac^ppted 2s lOd per ton. ??' Mr. H. S, Taylor jpM-:en interviewed at Adelaide with reference to the withdrawal of Westwood, Hope, and party i\t -Paraguay, stated that on reach ing Monte Video the party, led by White, went ashore and got drunk, but the matter was condoned and they went on to the settlement. He thinks that White has been expelled for trying to under mine the authority of the chairman, Mr. Taylor says that Westwood is the man who supplied them with money, and that, 8b he did not give up every thing to the association, it is clear he did not under stand what communism means.
