THE "GENTLE ANGLER." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
THE ' GENTLE ANGLER.' Aee anglers apathetic as well as ' gentle?' They are certainly not in the old world. In England there are numberless societies formed to protect the rights of amateur fishermen, and to secure good sport and healthy recreation ; but here we have no such body, although, judging by the large numbers who go a-fishing, there is ample scope. A letter in our last issue, advo cating the formation of an amateur fishing association, and, suggesting a rough out line of its advantages, is worthy of the attention of those interested in the delight ful sport. We would suggest that the writer of the letter should consult one or two well-known fishing men, and then call a meeting, with the object of forming an association. We think it would not bo a difficult matter to induce the Minister for Lands, who is noted for his partiality for this sport, to be the first president, and, under such auspices, it should quickly become well established.
IT WOULD BE A BIG DRAW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
IT WOULD BE A BIG DRAW. Will Sir George Dibbs aud Mr. Reid kindly arrange that Parliamentary cricket match in aid of the distressed unemployed ? It would draw better than tv circus, parti cularly if Sir George undertook to bowl ueorge Houston, sir ileury ±*arkes as one of the umpires would boa great attraction, and the Council might bo induced to lend the Hon. John Lucas as the other umpire. Seriously, there is no reason why a Parlia mentary match — Ministerialists v Oppo sition — should not be arranged for the object indicated. Both sides would then be able to truthfully claim to have done something for the people.
OUR CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
OUR CIVIL SERVICE GO3I3IISSION. As some considerable time must elapse be fore the Civil Service Commission — which, judging by common report, is likely to be a rather expensive body — presents its re port, and as its inquiry is not likely to be particularly effective without BuiLuuiuB, »u iiitvo msoivtiu co nave a Sunday Times Commission. The various departments will be dealt with by our special commissioner, who has the re quisite knowledge, and is capable of pre senting to the public a clear aud compre hensive view of the state of the Civil Service. His firBt article appears to-day. In this connection we may remark that communications -from Civil servants who desire to see honest reform are invited. Correspondents hardly need an assurance from us that their confidence will be respected.
A METROPOLITAN COUNTY COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
A METROPOLITAN COUNTY COUNCIL, It seems now evident that the proposal first mooted in the columns of the Sunday Times for the establishment of a County Council for the better government of the city and suburban municipal area is likely to receive the serious consideration of the local councils within the metropolitan dis trict. The question has been already before the City Council, which has referred it to a committee to report upon, and recently the Strathfield Council has also been considering: the subject, with the result that a ten tative scheme haa been drafted for submission to the other bodies inte rested, with a view of urging it upon the attention of the Colonial Secee tahy. * # # The resolution of the Strathfield Council is based strictly upon the lines of the Sunday Times scheme, and advocates the creation of a County Council to supersede the Water and Sewerage Board, tbe Transit Com mission, and the City Improvement Board. It is suggested that it should have control over...
GIVE MOTHERS A CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
GIVE MOTHERS A CHANCE. There is one thing very noticeable on all holidays in Sydney, and that is the faithfal self-sacrificing attach ment of parents to their children. This applies more particularly to the mothers, but paterfamilias is also very much in evidence assisting to drag along the little ones and the lunch baskets from home to tram. and. ftwim tram to boat, or train as the case may be. . The whole family are of course out for pleasure ; but it is difficult to realise how they succeed in securing 'a happy day' under such unpro pitious circumstances. It is occasionally pitiful on holiday evenings to note while lingering at ferry jetty or tram waiting'- place, tired mothers with sleeping babea in their arms, ' Johnnies ' and Sissies' hanging to their skirts, and pionio baskets carried somehow — how, is often a puzzle — the children cross and sleepy, and the parents' temper pretty well worn out, and their strength with it. Those people who find it quite difficult enough to wre...
NOTES AND COMMENTS. DISTINGUISHED DEADHEADS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. DISTINGUISHED DEADHEADS. With that want of reverence for sacred things so characteristic of Australians, there is always a lot of impertinent curiosity manifested in connection with the issue of free passes to distinguished visitors. To some extent Australians have doubtlesB inherited that overpowering sentiment or aiiectioit wiuu wmcu anguBn mon are said to regard a lord, and so long as the tree favors of the Eailway Commis sioners were restricted to real live members of the British peerage, we should, no doubt, all be perfectly ready to acquiesce in ttiafe particular method of greasing the fat pig, or, more politely speaking, carrying out the scriptural sentiment that to him who hath shall be given. Still, this particular description of hereditary legislator is yet a comparatively rara avis on Australian soil, and notwithstand ing all the advantages conferred by the fast and magnificent ocean steamships which now ply to our shores, the lords who have done us th...
A LADIES' QUARREL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
A LADIES' QUARREL. An essentially feminine squabble has occurred at Bathurst, \7hi0h haa formed the subject of columns of type in the shape of accusations and ex planations in the local Press. It appears that a ladies' cricket match was played at the City of the Plains on Boxing Day between a local team and one hailing from Lithgow, and the latter have been com plaining of the manner in which they were entertained, and that their opponents did not go to see them off in the train. A champion of the local ladies has, however, written to a Bathurst paper, denying the soft impeachment, asserting that the Lithgow damsels had a perfectly gorgeous time, that they were driven to the cricket ground in a sociable, had three players lent to them to complete their team, a splendid dinner given them, and, last but not least, that after the ball — we mean after the match — several of the Bathurst ladies spent the evening with them at their hotel. A veil is drawn over the proceedings at the hotel,...
GOLD FOSSICKERS AND THE HOLIDAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
GOLD FOSSICKERS AND THE HOLIDAYS. It seems rather extraordinary that the Sydney unemployed Bhouid postpone mak ing an effort to obtain a living until the holiday season terminated! Yet from of ficial reports this appears to be the case. It is reported that '? now that the Christ mas holidays are over, the number of the unemployed, who desire to be sent fossick ing for gold is rapidly mounting up to the level wheih prevailed two or three months ago.' It is difficult to see why the unem ployed should prefer to remain homeless and penniless iu Sydney during the holiday season in preference to trying their luck at the earliest opportunity at gold fossicking. Judging by the fact that there are no cries of distress from the small army of men who have been assisted to the country to search for the precious metal, one would think that the workless would be glad to seize tho first chance in that direction. That there are many who are not so disposed is not an agreeable fact for those genuine...
A MOMENTOUS QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
A MOMENTOUS QUESTION. Theee is no doubt that several important questions of political, social, and religious consequence have been before the public of late, but for a real stirring subject, cal culated to shake society to its foundations, perhaps there has been nothing in our time to equal the controversy which is now arising relative to tha most suitable coa» tume for adoption by lady cyclists. A morning paper mentions the interesting fact that 'a leading authority on fashion in Melbourne advises lady cyclists to wear Norfolk jackets, pretty neat vests, short skirts edged with leather, such as was donned by Miss Nellie Stewart in the recent production of Sir William Robin son's ' Predatoros,' full knickerbockers, and last, not least, gaiters. The solemn advice that is given with regard to the fit of these last-named garments, the terrible consequences (vividly pourtrayed) of wearing ill-made or ill-fitting gaiters, are confirmation strong ' that Melbourne's athletic maidens have t...
THOSE GRAIN DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
THOSE GRAIN DUTIES. The Premier must by this time have realised the inconvenience of making pro mises. He has had, doubtless much to his own chagrin, and to the expressed indignation of some of his Press supporters, to reruse to remove the grain duties till September next, in order to re deem a pledge given to a rural meeting when untrammelled by tho responsibilities of office. Under tho circumstances the v.-ordB of Ophelia may fairly apply : — Do not, as Bomo ungraoions pastors do, Show me the steep und thorny way to Heavon, Whilst like a puff'd find reokle6s libertine Himsolf the primrose path of dalliance treads, And reckB not his own Eeid.

OUR TELEPHONE* Hello ! Switch us on to the Melbourne line. We want Stoddart, please. Righto ! Call now. Is that Mr. Stoddart ? Oh— very well, then. How do you feel after the match? Proudest moment of my life, sir ! H'm ! It is a win the merit of which cannot be dis puted this time, thank God. Well, that's comforting ! The remarkable theories to explain yonr previous victory were very tiring. But are there no excuses to be made by Blackham, Giffen and Co. on this occasion ? Well. I have heard of a few, of course; but nothing like last match. No wet wicket r There was a bit of that, but fortunately it was our side th^t had the worst of the wicket. H'm ! That's awkward for the apologists ! But, let's aeo — oh ! We have it ! You were in suoh a long time iu your .socond innings that ' the wicket crumbled.' Is not that a good enough peff to hang our defeat on? It's bettor than none, certainly. But, per sonally, I don't think it amounts to much. But did not Lockwaod spoil the pitoh by runn...
