Singing For His Life. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 February 1894
Singing For His Life. John Abell, a celebrated singer and musician who lived in the reign of Charles II., had a very great notion of himself, aud would not perform unless he pleased. There is funny story told of how he was once made to sing against his will. While travelling abroad for pleasure he came into the town of Warsaw. News was brought to the palace of the famous English singer's arrival, and Frederick Augustus, the King of Poland, immediately sent word that he desired Abell to appear before him. ' Tell his majesty,' replied John curtly, ' that it suits me not.' Back went the court messenger with a wry face ; he knew his master's temper too well. 'Tell master Abell,' thundered the king, 'That I will have him come ! And take you boy, three stout fellows with you. The messenger and the three stout fellows be tween them managed to carry out the royal wish, and presently marched triumphantly up to the palace with their unwilling captive. The king waB awaiting them in the great h...

GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 February 1894
GRETA. (From our correspondent.) Cricket.— A novel and exciting exhibition ot thiB game came off on the public park on Saturday, when eleven of the adepts at it-onr first 11, as a matter of fact,— essayed to show that they could knock spots out of any twenty-four amateur players that the town could send against them. The Lilydale amateur team was quickly got to rrpf-.W. and the Daities met on the convincing ground in the afternoon, when an innings each was played, much to the delight of the (spectators, the triumph of the novices, and the utter humilia tion of our 'crack 11.' Why, they were fairly run over by the green hands m every department of the game and were all out for 96, and the amateursmanaged to run up a score of 158. Not being present at the match we cannot supply details, but we have been informed that the non-playing team showed some magnificent form, especially when at tho wicket, some of them being regular old stickers and defying the best bewling of their opponents....

ARMING THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 5 February 1894
ABHING THE ' POIiIGE. Natubally enough, the mnrderona violence of the two burglars who laid low so many policemen last week has re-awakened the controveroy about arming the constabulary with lethal weapons. Although the aspaalt upon the five officers was severe, we que-fcion whether the conditions are yet present v hich would justify a change from present arr a?e menta as to arming the police. Orcour. e we ?eJiall not be understood to ba waufcirg in Bympathy with tfce brave men who so nobly did their duty on Friduy morning. But it cannot yet be said that burglars and other ? criminals oE their type habitually and syatemaficftHy resort to violence. Thu cases are widely separated in time in which the police are treated as Ba-wden, Lyons, Taylor, McOourt, and AJfond were treated. And we venture to think the persistent bravery of ' these officer*, the doggednesH with which, as one was smitten down, hie comrade sbepped .into-ithe breach, will have aa_-good an effect upon the crimiual cla...
