A Ludicrous Position. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
A Ludicrous Position. Readers of Mr. Pemberton's Memoirs o£ Sothern will remember the story of the duel scene in which Sothern, then a young actor, came to the rescue of a pistol which would not go off by shouting 'Bang!' with the full force of his lungs. Mr. John Drew in the January Scribncr tells an excel lent companion story oca somewhat similar incident during a performance of a dramatic version of 'William Tell.' Mr. Drew was invited by the manager responsible for the production to witness the performance, and to pay especial attention to the archery business. The sequel is besb described in Mr. Drew's own words: — 'I did wait as patiently as I could until the scene, and I cer tainly was astonished. As I gathered from the subsequent occurrence, the apple and Tell'e cross bow were connected by an invisible wire, along which the arrow was to speed to the target. At the proper cue the arrow did speed half way towards the apple, and there stuck to all appearance in mid air ! In vai...

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. BILLS ADVANCED A STAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. BILLS ADVANCED A STAGE. Mr. Lyne easily obtained leave to bring in a bill to amend the Junee Water Supply Act, and Mr. See gained the consent of the House to the des patch of a message to the Upper Chamber, asking that body to take up the Stamp Duties Amend ment Bill at the stage where it was dropped last session. TUB ESTIMATES. No other troublesome matters intervening, the Treasurer was fortunate enough to get to work on the Estimates before 5 o'clock. As, during the morning sitting, the whole of the estimates for the Colonial Secretary's Department had been passed without reduction, Mr. See now went on with the estimates for his own department. He made a favourable atari;, for in a moment the votes of .£26,425 for the Treasury and .£4296 for the Stamp Duties Branch were passed. On the item of .£69,661 for the Customs, the retrenchment party, which had received such a thorough defeat on the previous evening, again made its appearance in the shape of Mr. Chapma...
The "Black Art" in France, [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
The 'Black Art' in France, An interesting «ase, as showing the hold witch and wizard craft has on the rustic mind in some parts of France, has just been heard before the Correctional Tribunal of Gannat, in the Allier, The Borcerer who appears is (says the Paria cor respondent of the Daily News) a man named Ber nard. He combined the practice of medicine with that of the black art, against which there is no law except when it is restored as a means of swindling. Bernard managed to pick up money as a sorcerer in scientific relations with the devil, but with such a strict regard for the Code as to make it impossible to get at him. He, however, exposed himself to prosecution by the unlicensed practice of medicine and the illegal sale of medicamenta. Hence his trial. The first witness against Bernard was one Boulicot, a farmer, who was persuaded that Satan had taken up his abode in his homestead because calves wept and the eggs laid by hens exploded like bombs. He had never seen imps issu...
PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. Thursday, February 8. LEGISLATINE COUNCIL. MINING ON PRIVATE LANDS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
PARLIAMENT OP NEW SOUTH WALES. (Herald.) Thursday, February 8. LEGISLATINE COUNCIL. MINING ON PBIVATE LANDS BILL. The continuation in the Legislative Council of the debate on the motion for the second reading of the Mining on Private Lands Bill was marked by considerable animation, the principal speeches delivered during the evening, being those of Mr. C. G. Heydon (Attorney-General) Mr. Pigott, Mr. Dangar, and Sir William Manning. After the last named gentleman had concluded a strong recommendation in favour of the principle of the bill, the debate quickly closed, and at 10 minutes to 10 o'clock the House divided, and the second reading of the bill was carried by 28 to 8. There was little or no excitement at the announcement of the result, as the success of the motion was assured some time before the House was called upon to divide. The House' went into committee pro forma, and leave was given to sit again on Wednesday next.
DISTRICT TELEGRAMS. NEWCASTLE. Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
DISTRICT TELEGRAMS? FFrom: Our Correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. Friday. Whatever hopes may have been entertained as to an amicable settlement of the strike at the Stockton colliery, may now be considered futile. The position is still the same, and may be described in three words : ' As you were.' The interview between the miners' representatives and the com pany's directors, from which so much had been looked for. took nlace vesterdav at the Company's offices. Those, however, who have had a lengthened experience of the manners and customs of unionists, foresaw that the great stumbling block, if other matters could be arranged, would be the presence of the non-unionists in the colliery. The true unionist is forbidden by the rules of his association to work with ' blacklegs.' As the Company refuse to dis charge the men to whom they have faithfully promised employment while thpy pursue their avocation creditably, and as the union men will not work with them, there is an end of the whole mat...
WARREN. Thursday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
f WARREN. Thursday evening. An agreeable change in the weather occurred here last night. During the past week the weather has been very oppressive, each day the thermometer registering over 100 degrees. Steady rain fell all night, and 106 points were registered. As the weather, although fine, is threatening, there is a likelihood of more rain. As grass was getting very scarce here for stock, this downpour, being tho best for the past three months, is very acceptable. MELBOURNE. Friday.

It is alleged that between January 18 and 19 he received amount of deposits, with the tenders. Kemp is believed to have left the colony.

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
ECHOES Oi1 SPORT. There cannot be the slightest doubt but that protests are becoming fashionable amongst racing men, and scarcely a meeting is now allowed to pass without someone coming forward on the bounce for a win, tie, or wrangle. I thought the circum stances which transpired at Browarrina lately were bad enough to merit recognition at my hands, but I am told that they formed a decided picnic com parea wii,n tne manner in which the late gathering , ?% England Jockey Club passed off at Arraidale. There were ten races in the two days and no fewer than eight objections, the groat majority of which were on the ground that the horses had been started in front of the post, but they were all dismissed, althoug one of the riders at the reunion candidly t;lls me that the starter was too complacent with the boys, though he was fair to everyone. In the case of iErolite, who won the big event on the first day, the protest was on the basis that it had not been intimatod that the horse was p...
SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [B? Zara.] As there is absolutely no society news beyond a few afternoon teas, and mild entertainments of that nature which would scarcely interest my readers, we must find something else to chat about. Fashion at present has little new to offer Jus, as until the summer sales aro,'over our dressmakers will not venture in anv new stvles. The modest ness of a dress still lies in the rather full skirt, puffed sleeves, and shoulder frills. Skirts are still trimmed round the edge and adorned with much lace. The evening bodice of the present season presents certain difficulties even to the experienced dressmaker. To all appearance it is merely a close fitting bodioe, with oorsage folds of the same material as the dress. When it conies to be scruti nised there is a good deal in the construction of the bodice that is embarrassing. In the first place, the old seam knownj,as 'darts' are |not'to| be found. The bodice clings to the figure, but there are no seams to be see...
ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
ITEMS OF INTEEEST.'' [Original and Selected.! A good story of a circus, which recently visited a Yorkshire town, readies us. A dog was adver tised to play on a piano. When the time came for the dog to perform, he got on to the seat and begun playing. Suddenly a wng in the crowd shouted ' Rats I' upon which the dog bounded off the sent. But the piano kept on playing. Shocking cage accidents occurred lately in the winding shafts of t'.vo Welsh collieries. At the Naval Colliery, Penyi;rai£, two cages uollidud while passing in the shaft 225 yards from the sur face. Three men weirs jerked down the pit and instantaneously killed, and another, essaying to slide down the guide rope, fell and shared the same fate. Six mm were being drawa up in the Bodtiuyall Pit, Rhondda, when the rope broke, and the cnge fell — fortunately not n. groat distance — to the bot tom. The men in the cage were seriously injured, and a miner who happened to be engaged at the bot tom of the shaft was instantly kille...

PARLIAMENTARY BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 9 February 1894
? P4.ELIAMENTABT BUSINESS. Proceedings in the Assembly on Wednesday were characteristic of the manner in which that body does what it calls work. , The Government had the estimates down for con sideration, and allowing that this Government and this Parliament is warranted in passing i i» i i . ? n * ? ? supply ror twelve montne, clearly in toe circumstances the early passing of the Esti mates is desirable. We are in the second month of the year, and the expenditure for the public departments is dependent ou monthly supply bills. But of course, the familiar motion for adjournment was interposed. The matter discussed was by nn means urgent ; debate upon it cannot po« aibly lead to any immediate practical result ; and the business of the country was kept waiting, as a hundred times before it has been kept waiting, in order that a number of mem bers may air their opinions before the electors. Mr. G-ormly and his followers Wasted to object to the auction sales of coiyitrj Crown lends, as...
