THE RAILWAY TRAFFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
THE RAILWAY TRAFFIC. The traffic during the week has been fairly good. Besides the impetqs given to it by visitors to the final Test match, the tickets sold in '-connection therewith on February 27 and 28 having realised ^81161, the Cook's excursion train conveyed about 300 to southern stations and Melbourne. A large number returned from Melbourne on Friday night. ? Sir Charles Dilke favors the Pacific cable in the interests of defence, no matter whother it pays or otherwise. And he is about right, too, Tho fire at Warby's Hotol-was a most remarkable one, Looking at the building from the front there is, excepting broken windows on tho third floor, absolutely 110 sign of smoke or fire on the walla. All are as spick and suan as when they loft the painters', hands a few weeks ago, At the rear, however, the flames rfui through to the top aa if there had been a regular fluoj an4 burnt tha reef to clndora,

Sharespeare in Churcs. — Plenty of people have beon discussing the question why men (and a goodly number of women) do not go to church. Various reasons havo been given, among others that the pulpit does not deal with subjeots of general intoreet and does not appeal to the active intelligence. It seems worthy of note that the minister of the Sydney Unitarian Church has announced a series of Sunday evening leoturos on ' Lessons from Shakespeare,' commonoing this evoning with ' Macbeth, or Sowing the Wind and Roaping the Whirlwind.' Wo do not doubt that valuable ' lessons ' may bo learnt from Shake speare's plays, for tho same ' humanity' pervades them as pervades the Bible, and we reoall tho faot that when Tennyson was on his death-bed he had an open volume of Shake speare beside him. DO NOT BE GULLED WITH QOSTLY ADVERTISEMENTS, but obtain full value for your money. CEYLON Golden Tips, 2s 3d, Is 9d, Is 6d, Is 3d per lb. E. H. HARRIS and CO., Teamen, 21 Strand.*

THE SEBVICE. ? 1 ? NO. VIII. — COLONIAL SECRE TARY'S DEPARTMENT. YYliat We Spend in Charities — Some Remarkable Figures — Labor Bureau — flow to Work a Free Railway Pass. (By the 'Sunday TrsiE3' Cojijiissionee.) The Colonial Secretary of New South Wales, who controls the annual expen diture of £902,185 5s 6d, is a man cf many cares. He is Minister for War, and chief guardian of the publio peace, on him devolves tho responsibility of safeguarding the interests of INFANTS, IDIOTS, AND LUNATICS, and he is public almoner in the matter of charitable allowances for the lame, the halt, and the blind. In the spare moments he is supposed to keep an eye 011 the agile Inspector of Scaffolding, and to edit or otherwise superintend the publication of works ou Australian orchids and other in teresting subjects. Fisheries and fire brigades also claim his attention, and when he is not looking after the Colonies' share in the Protectorate of New Guinea and tho Lord Howe Island, tho inhabitants of th...
THIRLMERE HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
THIRL3IERE HOME. In connection with the complaints made by a number of ox-patients against the Thirl mere Home, several others have written to or waited upon us to contradict tho state ments. They are emphatic in pronouncing the management all that could be desired. One thing wo are certain of, and that is that the committee of tho Home will ascertain for themselves the facts of the case, and allow nothing to stand in the way of securing proper fulfilment of the objects of the Home. We have every con fidence in the ladies and gentlemen com posing the committee, and have 110 hesita tion in recommending the public to sup port them in the good work to which they so generously and energetically devote themselves.
FAMILY FRANCHISE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
FAMILY FRANCHISE. The latest pro position m connection with the suffrage by which it is proposed to confer voting powers on heads of families in proportion to the number of their olive branches, will hardly be welcomed by disciples of the Malthusian theory, to which it ia calculated to administer a deadly blow. Should this proposal ever come into operation the really influential people in politics will be the fathers of large families, and one can imagine how eagerly the average politician would scan the domestic columns of the newspapers in order to make up his list of the progenitors of twins aud triplets, such, for instance, as the Kogarah gentleman bearing a familiar Parliamentary name, whose better half recently presented him with two girls and a boy — all doing well — or tho un lucky bankrupt ?jvho had to plead lately that he had gone down after a manly but futile effort to provide for a family of eighteen children. Under Mr. Stephen's proposed new law there would certainly bo...
THE PEOPLE AND THE CHURCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
THE PEOPLE AND THE CHURCHES. In commenting upon the fact that the bulk of the people withhold themselves from the influence of the churches, the new Modera tor of the N.S.W. Presbyterian Assembly, in hiB inaugural address on Tuesday, touched the weak spot of the churches (in almost similar words to those used in these columns before to-day) when he said : — 'We need no new Gospel for the world, nor for any emergency in life, nor for any new developments in society. The old Gospel, which our fathers loved, by which they lived, and for which many of them died, is abundantly sufficient for all. But we need to see that this old Gospel is honestly applied to our own hearts and lives as pro fessing Christians. I believe — and I do not profess to have made any wonderful discovery, for it has been known before — that the want of sincerity and of thorough personal loyalty to Christ is the want of the Church in these days. It is tho want of all the Churches — and of our own Church. I blame no...
"NO. 20, CHARLES II." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
' NO. 29, CHARLES II.' It is only a few weeks since Bernard Mullin, a Lithgow barber, was hauled before the local Bench for taking tonsorial liberties with the Sabba'tli ' contrary to the Act in suoh cases made and provided.' The Act 'made and provided' in this case is the product of seventeenth century legislators, and emanated from the Parliament of that pious and ever-to-be-lamented monarch, Charles II. (says the Lithgow Mercuet). The local wielder of the razor and scissors was charged with following his ordinary calling on Sunday, and, failing to establish an eligible defence, was ordered to pay a fine of five shillings, in default to be con fined in Her Majesty's stocks for the space oftwohours. The delinquent, however, flatly doalined to meet tho monetary engagement imposed by the court, and as Her Majesty's possessions in this district do not include a set of stocks, the situation became ono of some awkwardness for the administrators of the law. In order to stimulate payment ...

It is said that Mr. Eddy come time ago received an offer of £5000 a year from an English Railway Company, Nothing has been heard of late of Mr. Galton and the History of N.S.W. Some inquiry is likely to be made in Parliament. And yet another banquet — this time to Mr. Justice Simpson and Mr. ex- Justice Foster, tendered by the Bar. 'May it please yer Honors !' Sir Bruco L.

BOWLING. BALMAIN v. ST. LEONARDS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
BOWLING. BALMAIN v. ST. LEONARDS. The final game in ctmnaction with the pennant matches was played between the Balmain aud St. Leonards Clubs on the City Green yesterday. The Balmain players having won the penuant last year, and their play having been consistent throughout the present season, that olub's chances were considered very good. There was a very large gathering of spectators, who evinced groat interest iu the play. Tho Balmain raprBsentiitivas obtained a lead o£ 3 points iu the first half-hour, and the hopes of their supporters ran high when the half-hour board registered the scoroB at the end of the second round : — Balmain, 41 ; St. Leonards, 33. The St. Leonards players, responding to an appeal made by Mr. Punch (cap tain), greatly improved their play, and the end of tho third round nlaced them on a par with Balmain, each side having 60 points to its orodit. Very little alteration took place in the position of the clubs during the fourth half-hour. Balmain bad a load of...
ST. ALBANS STUD TO BE DISPOSED OF BY ART UNION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
ST. ALBANS STUD TO BE DIS POSED OP BY ART UNION. Nothing but regret will be expressed as it becomes known that Mr. W. R. Wilson has decided to dispose of his St. Albans Stud, the most importaut in Australasia. As a worthy successor to the late Hon. James White, both as a princely racing mar., whose colors could always bo depended udoii. and as a breeder. Mr. Wilson stands alone. There are too few of Mr. Wilson's sort in the racing world anywhere, and his retirement will cause a blank not easily filled. How ever, the fiat has gone forth. The mode of distribution will be by art union, managed by the world-renowned Mr, George Adams, whose consultations are at onco so popular and so genuine. The actual capital investod in St. Albans stud was ^6103,300, whioh returned 5£ per cent, but owing totall ing health and much other business Mr. Wilson could not continue to carry on tho establishment. No finer property than St. Albans exists anywhere, and the value of tho stock, comprising as it d...

Before the CURTAIN THE LYCEUM—"THE MASQUERADERS." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
[?] THE LYCEUM—' THE MASQUE-. RADERS.' The audience which crowded too Lyceum la&t night witnessed a splendidly-effective drama in ' The Masqueraders,' a play in four acts by Henry Arthur Jones. The chance of witnessing a piece that only 6ome nine months agp won the distinction at the hands of the. London critios of being reckoned as about the best Jones has written, and at the same time welcoming the new artists Mr. Bouoicault has added to tho B. andB. company, was evidently not to be missed lightly, and consequently the gathering was large and representative. 'The Masqueraders ' is a play of clever writing, boldness even to audacity in conception, and, as presented at the Lyceum, of good acting and, speaking generally, effective scenery. The characters, dyawn by a masterful hand, rivet attention. It is in four acts. The first and third are dramatic— the third pronouncedly so — the second confined mostly to society chatter and verbal play— it fell somewhat flat last night— a...

RABBITS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
RABBITS. The one time common question, 'What shall we do with our boys,' which was un expectedly answered by an erstwhile statesman of an adjoining colony' by the simple formula, 'Marry them to the girls,' seems likely to have its parallel in the long-standing problem, 'What shall we do with our rabbits,' and may find an equally simple solution by the newest reply, 'oat them'; or, if we can not do so ourselves, send them to our British cousins to be consumed as food. It seems somewhat strange, after all the legislation passed by the Parliaments of the respective colonies on tho subject; after the millions of rodents which have been trapped, shot, and poisoned, and their carcases left to pollute the air, that it should have taken so long to discover that they have a commercial value, aud that thousands of people in the mother-country are not only willing to purchase them as an article of ordinary food, but positively consider them a luxury. It should not, however, be forgotton that t...
