THE "LIBERATOR" EXPELLED. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 18 April 1885
THE 'LIBERATOR' EXPELLED. What have we to do with the ' Libera tor ' ? may not unreasonably be asked by certain of:our readers ; while others may, perhaps, mentally ask 'who, or what is the ? Liberator * ? ' A man or womah : of ordinary intelligence, : or breadth of view, who watches the current of things, and reads the pnblic journals, will not limit attention to one or two classes of' things; only. The ^ reports of the higher law courts are instructive, so also are those of police courts ; for they are part of. the daily history of men and wonien as they debates-in Parliament also are things we cannot afford to shut our eyes .to, as if we had nothing to do with them, or they did not concern us in the least degree; The sayings and doings at municipal council meetings have their value also', Whit is going on in the religious world, that is to say, among religious bodies, is also worth knowing. But there are some: matters lying beyond the reach of every day life, snch as the influenc...

Current Items. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 18 April 1885
Current items. We bave received a bottle of sparkling water from the Terry-street Vigilance Committee in proof that it is possible to satisfy the.most fastidious from the much talked of spring said to exist on the Water Reserve in that vicinity. Being teetotallers, we consider ourselves quali fied to pass an opinion on aqua pura, and our verdict is that the sample before j us is excellent.. It was, we are informed, taken from a small spring, or soakage through the rock, just above the, dirty water at present in the tank, and two buckets were filled in a 'minute and a half ' in the presence of Messrs. Mather, Landen, Milton, and Eccles ton. It would also, we should think, mix splendidly with whisky without effecting the bril liancy of that liquor, and therefore both ought to be satisfied with the product of this notorious water reserve. As we stated previously, under all . circum stances, it will be well for the council to oomply with the request of the recent petitioners and drain t...
