Sydney Teed Grains Market. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 7 February 1894
^Sydney Feed Grains Market. A correspondent writes :— The rpceipt of 1471 bags of maize from the Northern rivers, 2795 ba^s from Brisbane, about 400 bags at Redfern, and also a considerable quantity at Darling Harbour, had tne effect of completing the collapse which was so clearly impending at the end of last week. Early m the morning agents succeeded in placin' true Us or nrimp. Tnmnf ivmi^^ n-. r ? o^ r» ^ , «P 3d. At Redfern, by auction, 3s 2d and 3s 2.}d were received, but later on in the day agents generally would, with the greatest willingness, have allowed 'i ^e gram they had to their names to be taken off their hands at 3s. Be3t new river maize settled down to 2s 9d for best, although early in the day a few lots were mentioned at 2a lid. Queenaland also closed at 2s 9d, although occasionally higher values came under notice. The severity of the col lapse seems to be entirely due tc the heavy sup plies from Queensland, which were, on thepartof the nwvjonty of the trade at leas...

PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Herald.) Tuesday, February 6. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE EASTER KNCAMPSIE5JT. The Premier does not see hi3 way to sanction a military encampment at Easter. Thia because of the cost, which is estimated at some £33,000, a sum which the colony in these hard times can but ill-spare. MOTION FOR ADJOURNMENT. Mr. Fegan, who seemed much annoyed at the action of the police authorities, in granting protec tion to the men now working in the Stockton mine where there is supposed to be a strike, moved the adjournment of the House. The presence of this body, or ' army' of police, as he called it, was, in his eyes, entirely unnecessary, since no act of vio lence had as yet been committed. This, it was at onco evident, was the thorn rankling in Mr. Fe^an's side, but he tried to conceal his intentions by 'com- plaining that the mine was unsafe, and by stating that its condition had been condemned by the Government inspector and the police court Bench at Newcastle.

DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondents.] GRETA. A Mishap. — Yesterday morning while a little lad was driving one of Aldermaa Nattrass's bread carts along the main Btreet, the animal collapsed all of a heap in front of the Council Chambers, and shot the boy over its back into the street. Happily the youngster managed to do a lucky ' straddle ' down the equine incline, and so reached terra firma, in safety, but he is not game to repeac the experi ment. The horse was not injured.
