GOULBURN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
QOULBURN RIVER. After the most intense heat during the week, we have had almost winter weather to-day. Heavy rain must have fallen not many miles off, thoHgh we have had none. We are in hopes that before the clouds clear away we may be favoured, as tho early corn is getting a parched and dry appear ance. Pumpkin vines, and even lucerne on sandy soil, are withering up, and crying out for rain. If a match was dropped by accident the whole country would soon be in a flame. A mob of cows and calves, the property of S. Wiseman, Esq., of Cliffdale, Scone, passed up the river for Walara ; and a mob of fats started this day week for Sydney markets, from Baerami. Though the Goulburn now is reckoned a poor conntry, it seems to hold its own fairly well as regards the price the fat cattle bring in the market. SCHOOL OP ARTS. The Secretary of the local School of Arts has handed me for publication the annual report, as follows :— ' The Teaxly Report of Qoulbwry. River School of Arts. ' Ladies and...

THE BETTERMENT PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
THE BETTERMENT PMNCIPIiE. Dubektg a discussion in the Assembly last Thursday, Mr. J. H. Young said : ' The un fortunate part of it is, that we know we shall pass this resolution — [a proposal to reler certain worse to the Public Works committee] —and that we shall pass bills for the con struction of railwayB, and so on ; but we do not know that the law imposing the better ment principle will bo carried by Parliament.' These words demand the consideration of the Minister. If he really means to apply the betterment principle in connection with all wonk» now contemplated, — and we pive him credit not only for sincerity in this respect but for a clearer view of the obligations of private property owners than many public men enter tain — he should make the application sure. Under his present arrangements the applica tion is depeadent upon the enactment of the Betterment Bill. That is indeed before the Assembly, but a grave doubt is ]'untifiad whether it will pans. To bring it forward at ...

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
ECEOES OF SPORT. From Mr. John Jones, of Dungog, I have received a note pointing out that a paragraph which I recently published in an instalment of ' Echoes' is liable to give a false impression unless corrected. Mr. Jones savs that he told one or two Maitlandera that Mr. Clibborn — and not the A. J.C. — had upheld the action of the Dungog Jockey Club in reference to the dispute about Mr. Pat. McCarthy's horse. Jack Jones and his connection with the hack race. Mr. Jones also remarks that Mr. Clibborn wrot6 to that effect to Mr. M'Carthy, and enquired of him if he intended proceeding any further in the affair. The Morpeth racing man tells me that he certainly means to sift the matter to the bottom, and that the business will be brought up at tho meeting of the Australian Jockey Club on Thurs day. ?

Confusion in the Cabin. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
Confusion in the Cabin. A writer gives an amusing description of a scene on a sailing vessel during a gale at sea. It was in the night, and the vessel began snddenly to roll and plunge in a manner to start from its staid quiet every movable article in the cabin. Out shot trunks and boxes, off slid cups and plates with a smash. Back and forth in one rough scramble with the luggage, trundled the table, followed by tbe chairs. At this rate everything would socn be mingled in one common wreck. He says — Deter- mined to check the ruin, I sprang into the midsc of the confusion. It was rough-and-tumble at the risk of ribs and limbs. Down went the vessel almost on her beam ends, over went the butter tub and a box of loaf sugdr, and brought their contents loose upon tho field of action. There they were, our indispensable luxuries, on the common floor, joining a low frolic with boots nnd shoesand scullion trum pery. I made a rusli for tho butter, and grasped, knuckle-deep, the golden yellow m...
London Sales of Colonial Wool. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
London Sales of Colonial Wool. The fifth, and concluding, series of sales of colonial wool for this year closes on December 14. 55,300 bales loss have been catalogued altogether than in the corresponding series last year ; 22,000 bales remain now held over in first hands ; nearly 60 per cent, has been taken for export (including some 600 bale3 for the U.S.A.). French competi tion has been prominent. The currency during the fifteen days of sale has been steadily maintained, write Messr3. Jacomb, Son, and Co., with a very large attendance and brisk competition throughout. The general average result may be quoted as on a par with our previous auction values, says that short, heavy, inferior, greasy merinos (especially when very burry and seedy) rule fully 5 per cent, lower. The intrinsi cally lower proportionate values of the highest bred, finest merino wools as compared with tho3e of the medium, heavy, ' bad country' wools, still main tains annoyingly. Crossbreds have in most in stanc...
A Simple (?) Message. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
A Simple (?) Message. The following is said to be a copy of a message sent by an engineman to the foreman of the shops of the Pittsburgh and Western Railway at Fox» burg: 'Owing to the temporary deficiency of damn-. ness on the roof of the furnace of locomotive No. 8, tho active combustion of carbon caused calaric inten«. sities sufficent to permanently derange to contour of tho sheet. Please suspend active participation of this locomotive in transportation department, and re quire the employment of skilled artisans and mechanical appliances unobtainable at the time and place of Biich unsolicited and unexpected de» ran gment of |cro wn sheet and schedul . The derango ment was caused by procrastination in the applica tion of the appliances for introducing water iato tho interior of the boiler.' Edison, although a millionaire, still works as hard as of yore. His laboratory (which coats .£10,000 por year to maintain) still frequently holds him within its walls for 48 hours at a stretoh...
LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
LATE GENERAL NEWS. The eleventh annual meeting of the Local'Obtiott League was held in the Temperance Hall, Sjdney yesterday. Tho report stated that the cause of tho league had not progressed in either House, unless what had taken ulace had holnna tn mnni/i «,,vi: opinion. Speaking to the motion for the adoptioa of the report, the Hon. John Kidd said that a local option bill would not accomplish anything of itself, as its operation depended altogether upon the action of tho electors. He thought tho electors were to be trusted in that aa in other matters. Mr. Eidd further stated that the present session would be too short and too uncertain for him to reintroduce the Local Option Bill. They should relegate the measure to the electors, and let them return a Parliament that would pass it into law. At a public meeting of the league held in the even ing motious were carried condoming the delay in passing local option legislation, opposing the demand for compensation, and urging the return...
NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
NEWCASTLE. Be the cause what it may, there is very little indeed to send your readers from these parts. Our senior member, Mr. David Scott, was last evening made the recipient of a complimentary social in the Seamen's Irstitute at Carrington. The Mayor ^merman xnorntonj occupied tho chair. He pie sented Mr. Scott with large-framed illuminated address, signed by a large number of residents. Mrs. Scott was also presented with a silver-mounted pickle-jar, preserve dish, and pair of salt cellars. Very little excitement is occasioned at present in Stockton by the strike. The landing place is closely watched by the pickets, and yesterday there was a large number of women round and about the land ing place. The surface men continue to cut coal in thomine. They have been approached and asked to desist, but up to the present strongly refuse to do so. The signing of the document by intending candidates for parliamentary honours seems to be a bugbear in their path. The leaguers are as determin...
STEWART'S BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 30 January 1894
STEWART'S BROOK. The weather has taken a sudden and very great change. Thursday and Friday were the hottest we have experienced this summer. In the afternoon of Fridav a storm occurred, and since then the air has been gradually getting cooler and cooler, and now as I write it is sufficiently cold to bear heavy clothes. Light rain has fallen at intervals during tho whole of the day, and appearances promise us a good supply; an inch of rain would now be ivel come, as the ground has become exceedingly dry and hard during the last week. All our flats here are composed of made soil with layers of river stone underneath, so that they drain away very quickly. Lower down the Brook we noticed some very fine crops of maize. The season appears to have been exoeptionably favourable to the growth of this crop, a good deal of which is now grown where the flats widen. No amusements of any kind were here provided for the 26th inst. Almost all those inhabitants who could went to Kooty Bank races, wh...
