V.R.C. MEETING. Melbourne, October 21. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
V.R.C. MEETING. Melhourne. October 21. The V.A.T.C. have every reason to be gratified at the success of the Becond day of the Spring meeting. The stakes distributed were £300 less than the amount disbursed last year, and the balance on receipts -and expenditure^ should credit over £400 more than was attained on the Cup meeting of 1894, when the returns were regarded as very satisfactory. Mr. W. Bailey, of BaUarat, to-day Io3t his four-year-old brown horse question, by Neekersgat — Maritana, who was killed at Flemington while being schooled over the jumps at about half-past 3 o'clock. Lady Wellington (Neylon), 'Question (Carey), and Vanity (Jating) went for a gallop in company over the hurdles, all jumping well until they reached the second hurdle, when Question, taking off too far, fell heavily on his head and. broke his neck, dying instantly. Carey had a fortunate escape. The withdrawal of Atlas from V.R.C. en gagements, owing to his having cut his hock in the Caulfield Cup, eviden...

METHODIST UNION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
METHODIST UNION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Mr. Stephenson has chosen to address you at great length on this subject. No one in Adelaide is oven likely to be deceived by the carefully-drawn innuendos, but the matter is of more importance in the country, where the facts are unknown. Now Mr. Stephenson is rcgaruuu oy ma ureuireu no tus «twj-ri of the Methodist ministry. The careful phraseology and the general style of hiB letter show he possesses all the force of a 'very old' and determined ''lawyer.' -The points which he ' advocates are, however, trivial, and to any critic?! mind 'demonstrate' an exceedingly weak case. For why should he descend to calling the Rev. W. H. Fitchett the 'funny man of his Conference;' to characterise the salaries of the ministers ' their own most important interests ;' to impugn discord between the Rev. J. Berry and his church choir ; to misstate, at considerable length, the attendance at the meeting in Pirie-street ; to introduce extracts of statements of Mr. F...
Correspondence. METHODIST UNION AND METHODIST USAGE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
€om0ymtbince. METHODIST UNION AND METHODIST USAGE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I notice in your issue of October 15 another letter signed 'Wesleyan,' which, like his former letter, is very misleading. It is amusing to other Wesleyans to see him bo exercised in mind, yet entirely missing the mark. A full refutation can be given to all Mb unseemly misrepresentations, but he ' can not consent?' to comply with the reasonable request tnai ne bdouiu aigu urn uuuie, uwuuwi forsooth, he fears misrepresentation; yet strangely enough he indulges in unworthy words because 1 do not reply to his misrepre sentations minus his signature. If he is a Wesleyan then he may know that Wesley strongly condemned such like anonymous letter writers as lacking manliness. Firing from a hedgoat a (ellowman And wearing a mask to hide their shame is justly applicable to those who attack another from under cover.— I am, &c, W. H. HANTON.

THE SYMONDS APPEAL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— In response to your appeal I have pleasure in forwarding £1 Is. in aid of the R. G. Symonds fund. Mr. Symonds is, if I am not mistaken, the last survivor of Colonel Light's staff, and it would be a lasting dis grace to this province if the closing days of his life were spent .in the Destitute Asylum. Thanking you for drawing the attention of the public to the matter— I am, &c, .. ' R.H,& Adelaide, October 18, 1895.
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I haveonly just become aware that the Rev. Jams* Haslam had thought it necessary to publish an unpublished letter of Mr. Biok ford'a to the Spectator, of this colony, which has since appeared. I shall be glad if Mr. Haslam will also publish my reply after it has appeared in the Spectator. As far as Mr. Bickford's letter to the Adelaide press and myself are concerned the whole issue arose on toe statement of a Leading Victorian Methodist to Mr. Haslam to this effect: — 'The statistics as presented to the Federal Council were so un reliable that we sent them back.' In reply to that statement I stated that it could not be a fact, because the statistical committee pre sented a provisional sheet to the Federal Council at a meeting held on 'the 23rd August and asked for further instructions, and that the only direction given to the committee by the council was the addition of a few general averages, and that the sheet so amended was finally presented to the Federal Co...

Mr. Malcolm Murray, who seems MJ ue lire ^mrsuu iui£3b luucreaircu, uao icpireu uu Mr. Stirling's behalf ; although attempting to deny my statements, has .corroborated them in every particular, for which I sincerely thank him.— I am, &c, g.

THE HON. G. McGREGOR AND PASTORAL IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
THE HON. G. McQREGOB AND PAS TORAL IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— My attention has been called to a letter appearing in your issue of October 11, in whioh a serious charge has been levelled against me, one utterly devoid of truth And one I can not afford to overlook with the contempt it deserves. My cause of complaint is an utter ance by Mr. McGregor in the Legislative Council and repeated over his signature in your issue of the 11th ulto., that in a station in the north a well was sunk and the water was so bad that when old ewes drank it they only lived a abort time. The man that carried out that work spent £2,000 or £3,000 in making additional improvements, though he knew the water was unfit to give his sheep and cattle, yet the Government had to pay for all improvements, which included water on the run.' 'The man that carried ont that work' was myself, and I hasten to say the foregoing is Bimply a falsehood, which has doubtless been palmed off on Mr. McGregor by one of those u...

NEWCASTLE COAL TRADE. THE REDUCTION OF WAGES. Sydney, October 24. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
NEWCASTLE COAL TRADE. THE REDUCTION OF WAGES. Sydney, October 24. Mr. James Curley, the general secretary of the Newcastle Miners' Association, was inter viewed to-day. He said that the only remedy for the present condition of the coal trade — deplorable alike to capitalists and workers was a combination of the colliery-owners to raise the selling price of coal. At present the had brought the price down to an almost un xemunerative point, and a reduction of wages become therefore inevitable. He did not think that die consumers could object to a slight in crease in the price of coal The colliery owners in other parts of the -world were com plaining bitterly of ruinous undercutting by Newcastle, and if the prices were raised probably it would not mean any loss to the trade.
