DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. NEWCASTLE. Tuesday. THE STOCKTON COLLIERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 February 1894

DISTRICT TELEGBAIS. [From Our Correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. Tuesday. THE STOCKTOW COLLIERT. According to promise, the Secretary of the Stockton Miners' Lodge (Mr. T. Lewis) convened a meeting of the ledge yesterday to consider a letter from the Citizens' Conciliation Committee, request ing that a deputation might be appointed to confer with the manager, in the hope of making some arrangements for the settlement of the present dispute. The meeting was helu with closed doors. The letter was read and discussed at great length. Finally it was decided that the Secretary should write to the Citizens' Committee, informing them that until the manager withdrew the non-union men from the colliery the lodge could not send a deputation to meet him over the dispute. The prevalent feeling at the lodge was that the district had called the men out, and that until the district had decided by a majority that they should go back to work, the men would not do so.

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 7 February 1894

ITEMS OF INTEREST. rOp.roiNAIi AND SelBCTKD.1 The best living Javanese scholar (says an English contemporary) is probably the Rev. J. P. Jansz, who has recently completed a translation of the Old and New Testaments for the Bible Society. Mr. Jausz is over 70 years of age, and has been 41 years in Java. He has now undertaken a careful revision of the whole version, so that the latest and fullest \rnnmlaArra r\f f.Vin frn.nnln.fnr lnav be utilised. They are not without their own notions of fun ning and punning in South Singleton. At the municipal nominations Mr. BrowD, while seconding a vote of thanks to the Returning-Officer, remarked that Mr. Burnett was the best Mayor South Single ton had ever had. ' But,' said Mr. .drown, ' he want curbing.' And a voice immediately came in with 'Yes, kerbing and guttering,' whereat there was much laughter. A New York paper thus profanely alludes to a portrait of Sir Henry Parkes which was amongst the New South. Wales exhibits at Chicago: 'He has t...

A very large meeting of the Greta Municipal electors was held at midday to-day, at the Council Chambers, to hear the addresses of the various candidates about to be officially nominated to contest the three seats in the Borough Council rendered vacant by the retirement of Aldermen Kylatt, McEwan, and Jones. Neither of the last named gentlemen stood for re-election, and Alder man Bylatt was only prevailed upon to contest at the last moment, while the late Mayor (Alderman McEwan) hud, the more effectually to block any attempt to again place him in the Council, accepted the position of Re turning-Officer, thus closing every avenue against persuasion. However, there were quite enough candidates without him, and the usual formalities having been got over, the Returning-Officer rose to announce the following gentlemen as candidates : Alderman J. Rylatt, miner, proposed by Messrs. Steggles and North. Mr. Wo, Patrick, miner, and Ch...
