DISTRICT NEWS. GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENTS.] GRETA. Tue Land Question.— Mr. Fraser Hill, a lecturer of no mean ability, addressed a very large audience in the Oddfellows' Hall on the above Bub ject last evening. The Mayor was in the chair, and the speaker had large diagrams hung in front o* his audience the better to illustrate his subject. We may state that Mr. Hill is sent round by the Labour Electoral League faddists — the ' sink the fiscal question' fellows of Sydney, and although his lecture evoked considerable applause here on account o£ the instruction some parts conveyed, and the rich humour with which it was interlarded, his hybrid politics did not win much enthusiasm. At the close, the vote to form a branch of the league, was supported by a show of only about 30 hands, out of about 250 present ; and the indiffer ence went so far that not a man troubled to vote against it, although we know we hare at least 200 warm protectionists in Greta. Moral : We must .have a fiscal policy...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. MR. GEORGE PILE AND THE IMPENDING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 31 January 1894

LETTEKS TO THE EDITOR. MR. GEORGE PILE AND THE IMPENDING ELECTION. Sib, — I should like with your permission to make some comments upon the letter which appeared in one of your issues of last week over the signature of George Pile. Mr. Pile, I believe, is a rich Sydney auctioneer, who frequently writes to the Sydney papers upon political matters. Not very long since he contributed an article in which he made some suggestion about the employment of cheap Coolie labour from Colombo and Singapore as a remedy for some of the existing labour troubles. If I recollect aright, a writer in another paper fell in with the idea, and suggested that the experiment might be started by importing a ship load of Coolie auctioneers as a cheap improvement upon the expensive Sydney land boom artist. Being a rich man, of course Mr. Pile points the finger of ridicule at the .£300 a year salary for Labour members. The majority of the House, the right-thinking sort, many of them rich men, coolly pocket the ...

A Boy's Remarkable Memory. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 February 1894

A Boy's Remarkable Memory. Barnwell county, South Carolina, possesses a negro boy, twelve years of ago, who is looked on as the owner of the most remarkable memory of which the world has any record. He committed the entire book of Genesis to memory the other day in the space of three hours, repeating every chapter after reading it over once, and foraettinsr onlv somo lmlf dozen words from the first verse to the last. Some weeksagoa local politician delivereda speech of nearly two hours at a county meeting, and on returning home the boy was able to tell the dis course over with such accuracy that the following day the man who delivered it went to see him to take a copy of it from Mb moutb, having himself loBt the manuscript ou which it was written. This gift seems unaccompanied by any unusual degree of intelligence, the boy being a day labourer in the fielda, and he appears not to take in the sense of what the camera of his mind preserves, but to repeat it after the manner of a parro...

Stories of Sheridan. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 February 1894

Stories of Sheridan. The revival on the Btage of 'The School for Scandal' has caused the name of its author to be once more in tie mouths of men. Perhaps the most curious account of him, and in some respects the most intimate, is to be found in a little volume privately printed by William Smyth, the tutor o« his son. Never did impecuniosity and recklessness combine together to ruin a man as in Sheridan's case. 'What can I do, or anyone else, for such a master?'' complained his confidential servant Edwards. ' The other morning I went to settle hie room after he had lefb it and gone out: and* when I came to open the windows found them stuffed up with papers of different kinds, and among them bank notes. There had been a high wind in the night. The windows ' had rattled, I suppose ; he had come in quite intoxicated, emptied his pockets upon the dressing table, and, being dis turbed and fumbling in the dark for something with which to stop the noise, the bank note had served his purpose...
