THE CENSURE MOTION. A MAJORITY FOR THE GOVERNMENT ANTICIPATED. An Oppositionist's View. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 March 1895
THE CENSURE MOTION. A MAJORITY FOR THE GOVERN MENT ANTICIPATED. An Oppositionist's View. Nothing now has transpired since the rising of the House on Thursday evening as to the fate of the motion of want of confidence in tho Government, proposed by Sir George Dibbs, except the faot pretty generally acknowledged in political circles that Mr. Hughes went con siderably beyond his commission in his speech j put up by the Labor Party to criticise the Government more especially in regard to their alleeed laches in connection with the unemployed question, but being carried away by personal bias, he made a distinctly hostile spoech, whioh led many to suppose that the Solidarity Party had dooided to vote for Sir Goorge Dibbs' motion. The faot is that no caucus of the Solidarities has yet been held, but one is to take place on Tuesday aftornoon, when it seems generally understood that tbe majority will decide to support the Government. Should this be tho oase, and allowing for some absentees, ...
THIS CENTENNIAL PARK WORKS. Objections to WorKing for Rations. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 March 1895
THE CENTENNIAL PARK WORKS. ! Objections to Working for Rations, There has been some little commotion amongst the unemployed applying for relief at the Government Labor Bureau in respect to the work of levelling building Bites at the Centennial Park, whioh the reoipients are expected to perform in return for rations supplied. Somo of the men do ' not like the idea of working at all, and an outcry hag been raised that the Uovornment are trying to get work done at less than the our rent rates of wages. The real fact is that the Government have not the slightest idea of taking advantage of the necessities of the un employed, but the work has been specially sot aside for tho purpose of discriminating be tweon deserving men and the loafing class, and in order to do away with the demoralising effect of charity upon those who have been ex ? perienoing a period of .enforced idleness. The scheme seems likely to succeed in effecting this object, particularly as the work is of a light and easy ...

THE EXCITEMENT IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 March 1895
THE EXCITEMENT IN SYDNEY. The interest displayed in the test match by the public in Svdney yesterday was something remarkable. Early in the day the failure of Darling and, Gregory to materially augment their previously made aoores caused consider able disappointment, but news of tho subse quent stand effected bv Lvons. .Tarvis. and M'Kibbin (especially by M'Kibbin) was rocoived with great applause at the various places whero tho scores were posted. Those whose sympathies were with the Englishmen had cause for jubilation later in the afternoon, when the consistent batting of thry^visitors was made known through tho press offico placards. Senior cricket was lifeless, and the playerR were in most cases asking ' the score at Melbourne.'
THE EXPENSES OF CRICKETERS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 March 1895
THE EXPENSES OF CRICKETERS. The recent combined match at Brisbane evidently caused its promoter no little inoon venionoe, as may be imagined from tho con tents of the aubjoinod letter, whiah appeared in the Brisbane Courier on Thursday t — (to THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER.) Sir, — At a mooting of tho Speoial Com mittee of the Queensland Crioket Association last nisrbt, 1 was subjected to severe criticism as to my action in connection with tho amounts paid by mo to a portion of the New South Wales contingent who played in the late crioket matoh, Queensland and New South Wales v. England. I was informed by Mr. Roberts that he was compelled, on behalf of the Q.C.A., to inquire into the grievances of three of oar late guests, and the Queensland public was of the opinion that I had acted in anything but a liberal spiritin rewarding their services. Iredalo, Grogory, and M'Kibbin were mentioned as having complained of bad treatment, and as having stated that thny would never come to ...
THOMAS R. M'KIBBIN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 March 1895
THOMAS R. M'KIBBIN. The crioket authorities of New South Wales have, since the dissolution of the famous Turner-Ferris combination, by FerriB* self imposed exile a few years ago, lpokod about for new bowling of tbe first order. Until this summer the search had been nigh profitless, but the discovery of at least one new trundler of the best calibre has at last beon made in the person of 'L. R. M'Kibbin. Unlike the entree of Turner and Ferris to crioket fame, M'Kibbin has won his spurs upon batsmen's wickets. He is a sturdy young mau,24 years of a;n»; ar,d is destined to follow the law as a profession. A peculiarity about his bowling :'s that be has mastered the art of delivering , a leg break of acourato pitch without altering the action sufficiently to apprise tho batsman of his intention. M'Kibbin is an all-round athlete of considerable merit. Physioally ho is an uncommon looking man, having un usually long arms, while one leg is shorter than the other, due to an acoident. P ? f ??...

BAITING A BISHOP. His Cook and Coachman. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 March 1895
BAITING A BISHOP. His Cook and Coachman. The other day a deputation, in which the Bishop of Ballarat, a number of other clergymen, a representative of the Trades and Labor Council, and several prominent citizens took part, waited on the local City Council to protest again9t the running of Sunday trains to Queensjliff. A memorial was presented containing 120 signatures, and Bishop Thornton observed that it emanated from no sooiety, section, or clique, but represented the general feeling of intelligent citizens. Councillor Elliott got on his feet to cross-examine the Bishop as to his objection to Sunday trains. He wanted to know if the Bishop were con sistent in having his coachman work on Sundays, also his cook and other domestics ? He believed, too, that another clergyman present was in tbo habit of having his coach washed twice on the Sabbath and then preaching from tbe text bearing on Sunday labor. The report of the proceed ings then goes on to state that the general observations ...
AFTER THE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
AFTER THE EACES. We wero journeying homo after a very pleasant day spent at a suburban racecourse. The train, being a speoial, passed all stations en route with an angry snort, disdaining to step at any of them. Being tired of watching the monotonous and sombre scenery, the cards being unprocurable, time hung heavily on our hands, and, as you can imagine, yarn spinning wi'.s the order of tho day. Having talked of past equine celebrities, and argued tho different standards whioh they ooenpied in our several estimations, brought us to the animals at present in training, and pro duced a little wagering on tho forthcoming Autumn Meeting. Thore were Rix of ns in the party. As we all happened to be smoking oigars, we began comparing our different weeds, when, strange to say, we discovered that we only had one opinion on this subject, as everyone of ns smoked Frossard's Cavour Cigars, which are mild and aromatio, and beautifully fragrant, and, having tho nicotine extraoted in vacuo, make t...

THE BIRDS WHISTLED " THE DEAD MARCH." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
THE BIRDS WHISTLED ' THE DEAD MARCH.' ' Even the birds on the trees learned to whistle the ' Bead March.' ' It was an old soldier who was talking. ' We were in camp,' he said, 'in a flat, malarious part of the country. Our Colonel was a splendid fighter, but didn't apDoar to havo any idea of sanitary matters. Just then we were in more danger from disease than from tho enemy. Presently fever broke .out, and the men died by tho dozen. Hardly a day but we buried some of thorn in the swamp ; in fact, we played the ' Dead March ' so often that I used to fancy the birds in the trees had learned to whistle it.' 'Awful sorry, you know, boys,' said our Colonel, ' but so long as we have to stay here we can't help having the fever,' 'Yet the Colonel was wrong, as another regi ment camped near us almost wholly escaped. But their commander fought tho malaria with sanitation aud preventive medicine. That made the difference.' In January, 1892, the influenza wp,s epidemio at Stebbing, near Chelmsf...
LOOSELY FLOWING LOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
LOOSELY FLOWING LOCKS. 'Rookwood' writes: — Although I have seen 38 summers, I can't say that I dislike any stylo oxcept the plain, straight fringe, and as for cropping tho hair short, I think it gives the females too much the appearance of the clean-shaved man; but at the same time, I would prefer a bald-headed one to none at all. But my real fancy is to have the hair flowing loosely behind, for, tell me, can there be happier moments spent on this side of Heaven than there can be uhdor the flowing tresses of one you lovo, especially if she seals your lips with a kiss now apd again, for the touch of her hair, when drawn nicely around your neek, adds no end of bliss 'to the exchanging of kisses of pure, genuine love. The oustomary prize will be forwarded to the writer of the letter signed ' CEdipus.' '
NATURE, NOT FASHION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
NATURE, NOT FASHION. Thus ' Observer' : — In passing through country districts in Australia, or some of the charming lanes in the old country, one meets the rustic woman with her hair done up in a way more like what nature intended it. She thinks nothing of resorting to what is called ' fashion,' and does her healthy, honest faco lose any of }ts charms ? 1, 111 all boldness, say ' no.' In my opinion if the woman in our largo cities in Australia would only keep her hair well brushed and rolled up at tho back of ?hor head iu a simple loose bnt neat plait, and have nothing to do with anything but what nature has provided hor with, except a few hairpins, she will havo better health, and she will Jose none of hor charms, if sho has any, in the eyes of man ; and if alio has noue ali the false adornment in tho world cannot give J her an honest, loving faco, and make hor a healthy, wise, good, and affectionate wife and mother, which qualities every true man looks for, or should do.
