TAREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
TAREE. In my last I stated that it was like rain, and that a downpour was imminent, and we have juBt been viaited by such. Rain began about 10 a.m. on Saturday, and rained heavily all day, and also continued throughout Saturday night and Sunday. We have now had sufficient, as the ground is soaked, and it is hoped the weather will clear up. Grass is very plentiful up here, and all stock look well. A butter factory is to be started at Purfleet, and it is anticipated that it cannot be otherwise than a success, as it will be of very great benefit to Taree, Wingham,'and Tinonee, and the one at Jones' Island is rather too distant. On the 26th instant the s.s. John Gollanran on a schnapper excursion, and was well attended with success. On the same day, many residents of Taree went to a picnic at Woolla, and spent a most happy day, as everything was admirably arranged for the com fort of the guests, and I am glad to state it was a brilliant success. A cricket match took place at Taree on Sa...

COONABARABRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
COONABARABRAN. Mr. Walker Davidson's numerous friends will bo sorry to learn that while handling a young horse on Saturday last, the horse made a plunge, Mr. DavidBon's foot was caught in a loop in the rope and he was thrown down heavily. It wbb found the bone which forms the arch of the instep was knocked out of joint, and the foot ininred in other resDects. However, under the care of Dr. Failes, the jolly sur veyor is progressing as favourably as the nature of the accident will permit, but I am afraid it will be somo time ere he will be about again. A child of Mr. Goldfinches, of Gowang, which had received an injury to the head, fell out of bed the other night on the injured head, when Dr. Failes was sent for and attended to the little one's injuries I am informed the child was in a critical state till the doctor dressed the head. I am sure everyone will sympathise with Mr. and Mrs. Moylan in the Ios3 of their infant daughter, who died on Saturday. The little one had been ailing f...

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
NEWCASTLE. Yesterday the appearance or some of the police force with side arms and accoutrements caused j some little excitement. Superintendent Mears was in town, and this was made the occasion of a parade. Police protection has been granted to the Stockton pit, where a number of non-unionists have been en gaged to work. About 120 men have been engaged from elsewhera to do the work. The men them selves who are out on strike against the yardage re duction, seem, from what we can judge, to be anxious to resume work, but there is no chance now of a conference by means of which the dispute can be terminated, as the mine manager absolutely refuses to talk, the matter over. Meanwhile the nonunion ists will receive protection, and it is reported that a ship has been engaged to convey the nonunion ists across the water to and from work. Matters are at a very critical point. The annual meeting of the members of the School of Arts was held last evening in the lecture hall of the institution....

OFFICIAL LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
OFFICIAL LETTER. Mr. R. Stevenson, M.L.A. for Wollombi, haB asked us to print tbe following : — Public Works Department, Sydney, 23rd January, 1894. Sir, — With reference to the letter, dated the 14th December last, presented by you from Mr. J. L. Tresseder, urging the dredging of the channel in front of the Cockle Creek wharf, Brisbane Water, I am directed to inform you that from the reports which have been received from the Engineerin Chief for Harbours and River3, it appears that the bar is only shifting aaiid, and not: sufficient to really obstruct the traffic ; and, therefore, the Secretary for Public Works is unable to authorise a dredge being sent for tbe express purpo0e oE carrying out the work asked for. The matter will, however, be attended to the next time a dredge is working on the Hawkesbury. — I have, etc., J. Barling, Under-Secretary. The prayer to the avenging god — one of the finest things in ' Lohengrin' — was sung by the German troops on the eve of Sedan.
ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
ECHOES OP SPORT. The lecent race meeting of the Deniliquin Amateur Turf Club does not appear ti have been either the most enjoyable or harmoniouB function on record, and visitors must have been tired eie the weary and disagreeable outing concluded. In the first place, Deniliquin is pretty near a3 hot as Bourke, and the temperature of the latter place may be imagined from an old story, which has gone the rounds in the before time, which told of a well known character who said if he owned Hell ar-d Bourke he would sell Bourke and go and live in Hell. As he waa a clergyman, it must be conceded that he had opportunities of knowing a good deal more of the village of Hades than most people, and for the same reason it is probable that long ere this he has had his pleasures as to residence permanently attended. Fow ^ver, to stick to Denili quin : In the Trial Stakes, which opened proceed ings, one boy was fined and another was left to the tender mercies of .a larer meeting for object'cnable...

That rich Mr. Arinand is madly in love with her. ' I will not conceal from you that I am deeply interested in Mis3 St. Croix,' he said, and he looked so frank and handsome that my heart throbbed with, pity as I confirmed the report of Marigold's betrothal. He grew so white for a moment that he frightened me. Then he caught my band in a grip that painB me yet. ' 'Will you tell Marigold that it would have been kinder to have stabbed me to the heart with her own little lands than have fooled me so fatally with her Ibeautifnl eyea and angel face ?' he cried. Then he rushed away like mad.' 'Say nothing of this matter to Marigold,' advises the good rector. ' There is nothing ao dangerous as turning a young girl's thoughts from the man she is to wed.'

PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. TUESDAY, JANUARY 30. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. QUESTION OF PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894
PARLIAMENT OP NEW SOUTH WALES. (HeraU.) TUESDAY, JANUAEY 30. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. QUESTION OP PRIVILEGE. Mr. Neild rose, as soon as the Houae met, to call -attention to certain a'legations made by the Even ing Nevis with regard to the conduct of members. Legislators, it appeared, had been chargpd with gambling and doing wicked things in the Parlia mentary refreshment-rooms, and Mr. Neild desired that the House should take stem to show that these ?Statements were incorrect. At first the question was raised as one of privi lege, but members were Boon Luiprised to learn, on the authority of the Speaker, that the Assembly, as ?a Colonial Parliament;, had rea'ly no privileges at all. The Privy Council, in various decisions, hai ruled that the immemorial rights of the House of -Commons do not extend to colonial Legislatures, and consequently our own local Parliament has no other powers than those which were grant' d to it i-y the Constitution Act. Hence Sir Joseph urged the Assembly not ...
