Our correspondents are hereby re quested to refrain from forwarding such messages, unless the person reported has announced1 m our ?columns that he is a candidate. vv« uujeoi, decidedly to pay for telegraph messages sentl on Tbehalf of persons whose economical instincts keep ihem out of our advertising columns. Something for the Inspector of Nuisances. — 'Our attention was called to-day to the festering ?carcase of a horse, now floating in the river at the rear of Tobin's Buildings, High-street. Judging by the abominable stench which blew up from the liver all day, the animal must be dead at least a ?week, and no one seemed to know how long it has been in its present position. If this Bhould catch the vigilant eye of the Inspector as his olfactory organs seem impervious to smells, perhaps he will :'see that s...
ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 February 1894
ECHOES OF SP0KZ A country correspondent Bends me the following - Ttu x«?d of Wlnfi who haiIs from Sydney, and was at the Moree races, writes as follows-. 'The fields were large and the racing first-class. Fairy, a Wee Waa mare, won the double. She is by Woodstock p-^o ,, uumu., ui xyius, may -well be proud of his handicappmg, for such finishes I sever saw before anywhere If the A. J.C. want a handicapper, he ta the man for them.' This is doubtless all very fln| and large but I fancy when the Australian Jockey Club has the ill-luck to require a successor to mX Soarr, that they will not offer the vacancy to Mr! Williams, adept though he may be. Its biff oddn against the modern ' mau for Galway' beins found in the provinces. '? B By the way the stallion Woodstock, mentioned above, was at one time trained in West Maitland by Mr. James Mayo, and when I first clapped eyes on him he was a strange-looking animal He had a very gross middle with long, weak-looking w which often promised to tu...

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE PRIVILEGE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 February 1894
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TEE PRIVILEGE CASE. By 5 o'clock, everything had been cleared off, and a crowded House awaited the appearance of the editor of the Evening News, who had been specially summoned to appear at the bar, and to give evi dence with regard to certain paragraphs which had appeared in his paper. The anticipated scene, however, was delayed for a while, since the Premier eook cne coursa or moving that the order of the day for the editor's examination be discharged. Sir George, ina brief and concisespeech, asked the House to reconsider its position, because, though ifc was naturally reasonable that members should°be indig nant at the statements which had appeared, the Assembly was absolutely powerless to do anything in the matter. An instance, which occurred some four year3 ago, showed that the attempt to examine a stranger at the bar of the House only brought contempt on the Chamber, which had no power' to punish a witness if he refused to give evidence. If members wanted...
