SNAKEBITES AND ANTIDOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
SNAKEBITES AND ANTIDOTES. The number of fatal cases of snakebites whioh have been reported lately seems to shosv that the danger to the publio from the prevalence of venomous snakes ia by no means diminishing, and also serves to indicate the unreliability of any of the alleged antidotes which have so far been discovered or invented. Whether such an antidote will ever be discovered seems doubtful, and perhaps the difficulty in deciding as to the efficacy of any remedy is one of the chief obstacles in connection with the subject. ' As was pointed out by Mr. M'Garvie Smith in the recent inter view with a Sunday Times representative, so muoh depends upon the virility of the snake or the quantity of vepom he injects from his fangs, and which- seem to vary widely, that it is almost impossiblo in cases of recovery, to say whether the bite would have proved fatal or not 'without any remedy being applied. It is evident, at all events, that thore la still a , plentiful lack of knowledge on th...
BE CAREFUL! [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
BE CAREFUL ! The Land and Income Tax Bill should not be finally passed until the promised tariff reform ia an accomplished fact. It is un deniable that with economical administra tion there is no occasion for further taxa tion, and that the object of the land and income tax is merely to equalise the balance which will be disturbed by the removal of a large portion of tho Customs taxation aB proposed. If the land and income tax is brought into law before tho tariff is revised, tho people may find them selves saddled with both the old and the new taxation, for it is possible the Government may go out on tariff reform. There is no reason why the Land and Income Tax Bill should not be advanced to tho final stage, but it should not become law until the Customs taxation is removed. The Tariff Revision Bill could easily pro vide for the abolition of certain duties at a stated date, which would allow time for the machinery for the new tax to be brought into operation. It behoves our represe...
A FALSE CRY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
A FALSE CRY. The argument that because the New South South Wales Railways can get on tor ten months without Mr. Eddy while he is on holiday therefore they can get on very well for ever without him, is the sort of talk customarily used by tho political windbag to sway the crowd who are usuplly content to allow others to do their thinking for them. This cry has been raised in the Assembly, and is having its due effect on the section alluded to above. Ho'w fallacious is the argument any man in business can tell without consideration, and any person of ordinary intelligence will admit it upon giving the matter a moment's thought. Thero is a difference between the con trolling head of a business leaving it for a holiday and leaving it altogether. If he goes on holiday the business continues to be conducted on the lines he has laid, down, and if his lines have been successful then the success will continue. But if the con trolling head cuts himself clear of the business, probably the syst...

MR. WANT AND HIS HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
MR. WANT AND IIIS HOLIDAY. The Hon. John Want, M.L.O., Attorney-General, ingeniously, in lawyer-like fashion, loses eight of the main point at issue in defending hia two months' holiday at the public expense. He says he took a holiday in vacation 'when a member of Sir George Dibbs' Ministry on one occa sion, and, in fact, always has taken a holiday in vacation, and will probably continue to do so. Therefore, what is the matter 'with this particular holiday ? That is what he asks in effect. He also refers to Sir George Dibbs' trip to England and Mr. Barton's to Vancouver, the idea being to indicate that even if the act cannot be defended he is, afc any rate, no worse than his neighbors. « s 0 The cases cited, however, are not at all analagous, as Mr. Want full well knows. Both Sir George Dibbs and Mr. Barton had been a con siderable time in office, and had had a health - breaking Parlia mentary experience before thoy took their holidays. Mr. Want took the trip immediately he was ap p...
MUNICIPAL TYRANNY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
MUNICIPAL TYRANNY. It would seem that it is not alone in semi-theological matters that the elements of persecution and tyranny | are embodied in certain of our public statutes. Equally as tyrannical and quite as illogical as certain notorious Acts of Charles II. and George 1 Y. is j that clause in our own Municipalities Act which impoees a penalty on any alderman resigning or compulsorily vacating his seat. The office is to all intents and purposes an honorary one, and to compel any man to con tinue to perform the duties when they become distasteful or incompatible with hiB ordinary avocations or move ments is not only wrong, but in the highest degree absurd. Surely the person invested 'with aldermanio responsibilities is in the best position to decide whether he can continue to perform them with credit to himself and advantage to those 'who elected him, and to say that alderman 'who from any rea son whatever havo come to the con clusion that they should relinquish their municipal p...
NOTES AND COMMENTS. MAKING WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. ? o- — MAKING WORK. It is to be hoped that not many of tho un employed sent to the country on. free passes by the Labor Bureau have similar ideas regarding ' making work ' as the man William Collins, who 'was sentenced last week to four years' imprisonment for setting fire to a fence on the Kingsvale property, near Murrumburrah, and who pleaded, apparently in extenuation of his offence, that he had committed it for the purpose of making work for the unem ployed. There is no doubt that the sen tence was righteously deserved, and it may bo hoped will act as a deterrent to persons ? with similarly lax notions as to tho means of providing employment. Assuming the plea to be genuine, however, it throws 8omo light upon the amount of ignorance and Bhort-sightedselfishness still prevalent, it is to be feared, amongst numbers of people. Carried to its logical conclusion/ such, actions would mean that it would be the finest thing in the world for tho labor ing classes if t...
ONLY A SKIRMISH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
ONLY A SKIRMISH. Oub prognostication' that the time for the big political battle of the year bad not arrived, and that the Government would easily win in the affair of Tuesday, was fully borne out. The fact that Sir Henry Parkes voted with the Government was sufficient indication that the time for 'the grand struggle' had not arrived, and the vote of the Labor Party showed that the statement that Mr. Hughes had 'gone blind' 'when he gave out that the Party vote, would go against the Government was 'well justified. Mr. O'Sullivan's red herring drawn across the political scent had no effect, and the majority of 39 against the motion proper indicated, not so much, perhaps, confidence in the Government, as the desire of the House to get on with business, instead of playing at changes of policy which never get beyond the promising stage. And now, until the time fixed for tariff revision arrives, let us have some of the long-needed legislation — no guerilla war fare, but a big fight at th...
CAMERON OR ALLEN? [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
CAMERON OR ALLEN ? Perhaps there was no more consistent party man in the last Parliament than Mr. Alfred Allen, of Waverley. At the last general election his party rewarded his long and faithful services by transferring their support from him to Mr. Angus Cameron, also a Freetrader, aud perhaps an abler Parliamentarian. Mr. Cameron was elected. Naturally Mr. Allen was dis pleased, but his former colleagues assured him that it waB 'all for the good of his party,' and with this cold comfort he had to be satisfied. Now Mr. Angus Cameron tells the leader of this same party that he regards him as a bad political lot, and it is just a toss-up whether he supports him or not ! To those who can read between the lines the speech of the member for Waverley on Tuesday was that of a Parkesite, and Parkesites are more powerful opponents of the present Adminis tration than are the direct Opposition, for the reason that their hostility is not openly declared. They pose as candid friends, and attend...

"SIX BOB A DAY" AND £4000 A YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
' SIX BOB A DAY ' AND £4000 A YEAR. The question for Parliament and the people in connection with the salary of the Chief Railway Commissioner ia not whether £4000 iB a particularly large salary in com parison with the ' six bob a day ' of the laborer, but whether Mr. Eddy is as well worth it to his employers as the six shillings a day man is to his ? That is, does this country, as Mr. Eddy's employer, get an adequate return for the salary paid, or to be paid ? That is the question that has to be con sidered in all classes of employment — the question of adequate return. For our own part, as often previously stated, wo soe no reason for three Commissioners for Rail ways. That one Commissioner and Mr. M'Lachlan, secretary, oould oonduct tho system perfectly, could hardly be ques tioned. A legitimate saving could be effected in that direction. As to the other matter, if tho supporters of Mr, Eddy's salary can make it oleav that ho is worth £4000 a year to New South Wales, then members...

NEW DRESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
MEW DRKSSES. I think (writes a ' French Expert '' in the DaiXiT Telegeaph, E.) I mentioned theadvent some little time ago of the pretty half wool half silk 'diamantine' moires now more seasonably designated under the name of Sans Gdne. In litrht colors, especially in bon bon pink, citron yellow, mauve, cream, and Nile green respectively, these materials are emi nently successful when employed as evening dresses. In general the skirt is unexaggera tedly full, with five or seven godets, arid quite plain. The skirts, I ropeat.are usually untrimmed, and are prettier so ; but in some instances two satin ribbons are carried down from waist to hem, forming a ' tablier,' where they aro secured by large and chio bows, centred by. a rhinestone buckle, a fall of lace, or last, but certainly not least — inasmuch as floral trim mings on evening dresses are muoh worn this season — by a bunch of flowers, Even prettier Btill is an arrangement in which the bows are dissimilar ; for instance, the one...

THE REVENUE MEASURES. THE GOVERNMENT SATISFIED WITH THIS PROGRESS MADE. Business for This Week. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
THE REVENUE MEASURES. THE GOVERNMENT SATISFIED WITH THE PROGRESS MADE. . Business for This Week. The Premier put in a very busy morning yesterday, and for some time was invisible to all callers. Speaking to a Sunday Times representative, he expressed himself as well satisfied with the progress made durinir the weak with the Land and Income Tax Bill. ' Of course,' he said, in reply to a query, 'the exemption clause created some debate, but nothing out of the way when it is considered that that is the most im portant part of the Bill — the most trouble some, the most debatable; in fact, tho really knotty question. The amount of exemption determined upon by an overwhelming majority is vary nearly the same as that of £500, which I have all along contended for. Indeed the amount of .£500 would have been adopted by the same majority only the forms of the House would not permit it.'

POLITICAL PELLETS. Phonograph Macdonald. The Government are putting the cart before the horse in passing, or endeavoring to pass, the Land and Income Tax Bill before revising the Customs taxation, as the people may eventually realise to their sorrow. Mr. Monaro Miller removed from the Assembly by tbe Sergeaut-at-Arma. Sir George Dibbs considers that Mr. lieid panders to the Labor Party, and the Premier scornfully denies the imputation. There is a not inconsiderable Goodohap in fluence associated with railway debates in the Assembly. Is Mr. Angus Cameron annoyed that he waa not nominated by hia party for Chairmanship of Committees ? He is agin the Government I There has been a groat deal of flapdoodle talked this week in the Assembly.

TRAM GUARDS' TROUBLES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 March 1895
TRAM GUARDS' TROUBLES. Complaint was made on behalf of the tram guards when the proposal was made that thoy should sell tiokets that they bad already quite enoueh, if not too much to do, and that they now have their work cut out on a crowded tram will be' admitted. One source of trouble to tho guards which might be remedied is the distribution along tho route to newsagents of the parcels of daily papers. At night, particularly when a rush is on, those parcels, which are placed on tho front car, and are at times a great nuisance to passengers, are liable to go astray, and the (fuard is blamed in consequence. But with a long und full tram ho cannot attend to his' passengers and the papers too. A way out of llie difficulty haa been suggested, that of giving tho stoker charge of these papers, but whether he could attend to tha work properly or not is open to question. Anyhow, the gu£.rd onght to be relieved of tho duty during busy times, if not altogether.
