SUNDAY TRADING. TO THE EDITOR. Sib, — Will you kindly allow me to call the at tention of the public of Balmain to the whole sale disposal of intoxicating drinks on the Sun day. I kno w persons who are constantly in toxicated on the Sabbath day, and these people inform me what houses they can get drink at any time they wish. The law forbids tbe sale of intoxicants on the Sunday and yet it is openly broken, and these poor weak indivi duals can get all they desire, and mueh more than that. Home people may. be rei»dy to' say if the law is openly broken, surely the officers ot tbe law would Bring tne dealers to justice. It is a very easy thing for such officers -to be so blind as not to acknowledge they see or know the law to be broken. I have myBelf seen men go in and out of public houses on the Sunday, I have heard the till open and money dropped in, the removal of glasses, &c., and * eventually the departure of the imbibers. Now, in the name of truth and honesty, I would like ...

A contest between the Balmain an l Bur ? trtnlr nlnon nn A~nn.il- tural Ground on Saturday, for the Gardiner Cup. The game, which was fairly fast, was marred a good deal by too much desire to hold the ball in place of passing it, and the players seemed to' forget they wero at liberty to kick the ball, the dribbling of the Balmain team was perhaps a feature in the play aud greatly helped them to defeat their oppon ents. The first try. was obtained by Wool nough but it did not result in anything. In the second half the Balmain players aeemed to have pumped out their opponents, and Hickey, Hawkins, and C.

Tho Contingent. ; Soaking weather greeted the Contingent on their arrival in Sydney. The pitiless rain came down in an. iuoessant pour, and sadly marred the effect of the Triumphal Entry. Glad in their tropical garments, the men must have felt the cold and wet severely ; but their bronzed faces and soldierly bearing, weak and ill though many of them looked, contrasted most .favour ably with some of our home forces forming norh nf tTiA nrnnnQRinn. A mni*A mnMflV orowd we never saw. Hardly two sections of fours were alike. Some were clad in their scarlet uniforms only ; some in over coats, of every shape and hue ; . a few in regimental waterproofs ; and a great many had gaudy coloured scarfs wound round -their throats in utter defiance of ' Regulation ' and good taste. Surely if the gallant little band, lightly elad as they were and fresh from the burning sands of the Soudan, could stand the merciless downpour which continued unceasingly from the time they left the ' Arab,' until they...

THE PROPOSED TRAM. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 27 June 1885

THE PROPOSED TRAM. It does not often fall to the lot of a com- munity to have such a generous offer made to it as the one spoken of in our last issue as coming from an American company, viz., the proposal to construct, entirely at their own risk, a cable tram- way from Callan Park to the Darling street Ferry. We say generous because an expenditure of some £70, 000 on a tramway in Balmain means a risk that       the municipal authorities will not have power or inclination to undertake for many a long day, and the possibility of a liberal government ever doing so is   even as remote. A syndicate offers to put down a tramway from one end of   Balmain to the other, for which journey they are to charge the public two penny fares, and construct the tramway under the supervision of the Borough Council; and with the promise to hand over the whole line to that body in thirty years.   Were we as a community to refus...
