LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 February 1894

LOCAL NEWS. LusiE Natur,t3.-A white kangaroo passed through Tenterfleld on Monday bound for the Svdnev Zoo, by the committee of which body it has been purchased as a curiosity. Mr. G. Kermode informs us (Star) that similar animals have been repeatedly found in the neighbourhood of Pike s Creek. Albinoiam is a well-known phenomenon with quadrupeds, or even tripoas, dub in conniicuuu ?with those lively characters that ' clip the wing ' the appearance is far more rare. Nevertheless, Mr. French has in his possession for taxidermic treat ment, a real curiosity in the shape of a white 'black duck.' The bird is but a ' creamy' with a dark feather or two in its wings, but is a real curiosity, and vouched for by French aa a real «« black duck.' This ornithological curiosity has been seen by several local sportsmen, who had in dustriously chased him ; indeed, Mr. J. Morgan told French some time si ace that ' he'd get that bird or perish.' It was therefore with joy that after nearly all the lo...

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 February 1894

ECHOES OP SPORT, Lord Randolph, who realised the record price in Australia for a yearling, viz., 2300gs., has been nominated by Mr. A. S. ChirnBide for two or three of fche general events of the V.R.C. Autumn meeting. Though four years old fcho full brother to Wild Rose has never yefc carried a racing jacket in public. A player named P. M. Rath, in the Argentine Republic, up to October 25, had an average of 361. He played three innings and scored over 100 each time, being only once oufc. He also got 14 wickets for an average of three runs each. The race horse Two Up, which was turned oufc for a spell in the Mudgee district, has either been lost or stolen, and the police are searching after the son of Arabi.

ECONOMICAL MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 February 1894

ECONOMICAL MANAGEMENT. Sir, — The report of the East Maitland Borough Council Gas Committee that appeared in tha Mercury of February 1st, must be extremely grati fying to the ratepayers, and reflects the greatest credit on the committee and all concerned in the management of the Gas-works. There is one point, however, in the report which seems to me to call for some remark, and that is the way the committee have treated their working foreman, Mr. Aird. Several speakers agreed that the working foreman deserved some consideration from the Council, and aB one with some experience of gas manufacture I quite agree with their opinions, as the Buccess of a gas-works depends almost entirely on the manager or working foreman, because if the work inside the retort house and that immediately con nected with it be not well done, no amount of management outside can secure such splendid success as that shown in the report above referred to. I observe that; the average quantity of gas made per ton...

DISTRICT NEWS. RAYMOND TERRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 February 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondf/nis.] RAYMOND TERRAGE. The local Public School Board has recently been reconstructed, and three new members added to it, namely, Messrs. S. M. Doyle, H. Courtney, and G. H. Pepper. Prior to the appointment of these gentlemen the Board had not held a meeting or performed any of its functions for several years. The Board as at present constituted includes — Messrs. E. H. Richardson (chairman), J. S. Hart, M.L.A. (secretary), H. Slade, and those mentioned nbov9. Meetings are now held regularly, and the interests of tbb schools in the district, as far as it comes within the province of the Board to look after them, are being properly attended to. The residence provided for the teacher of the Raymond Terrace Superior Public School is a very unsuitable one iu many ways, and is very much below the standard of domestic accommodation provided for much inferior schools. The school is also too small to accommodate all the children who attend, and the averag...

GRETA. More Cricket. — Notwithstanding the severe les son the Lilydales taught the senior club last week, they again decided to meet 'thegallant24' inafight to a finish this week, and the match came off on the Park on Wednesday evening in the presence of a large crowd of spectators, barrackers mostly for uue mmiueriesE team, inow we uo not approve or 'barracking' — it is not good form — and neither do we like to see our almost invincible ' first eleven' put down as they are being, yet truth is troth, and wo have again to report a most disastrous defeat for the cracks. The new chums again ran over them and sat on them, as also paralysed them and things, and when the game ended the scores stood — Lily- dale 24, 109; United 11, 47. Yes, that's how matters stood on Wednesday. Heigho !

DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. NEWCASTLE. Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 February 1894

DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. [From Our Correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. Thursday. There seems to be some probability of the Stockton strike being settled amicably at last. It appears that Messrs. Melville, D. Scott, and W. Grahame, M's.L.A., have been busy lately in en- deavouring to persuade the directors of the Stockton Coal Company in Sydney to meet any number of miners of the Stockton Lodge in con- ference in Sydney at three o'clock this afternoon, with regard to the dispute. They have consented to meet the miners, but will not meet the district officers of the Miners Association, or any miner not a member of the Stockton Lodge. Last evening Mr. Melville wired to the Lodge stating what had been done, and asking them to meet Messrs. Scott and Grahame on arrival of the Sydney train at 9.35 last night. The lodge officers and some of the committee accordingly met Messrs. Grahame and Scott, who informed them of what had been done, and arranged for some of that body to proceed to Sydney by mail tra...
