A Trip to pw Zealand. THE WONDERLAND OF AUSTRALASIA. II [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902

A Trip to pw Zealand. THE WONDERLAND OF AUS TRALASIA. [By Rev. S. G. Fielding, author of " The Southern Light," " Down to the Sea in Ships," etc.] II I slept on board that night, and early the following morning found a vehicle awaiting to convey me to " Tituella " at Ellerslie, between three and four mile? from Auckland, the residence of the kind friends who en tertained me during my stay in the neighbourhood. On away through the city with its long lines of wooden houses, the drive was simply delightful. It is true there was a mizzling rain falling ; but oh ! the beautiful green of the country; the lovely hawthorn hedges ; the trim and well-kept gardens; the arum lilies growing in rich profusion by the wayside ; all forming a remarkable contrast to the parched and sunburnt land I had recently left. Bishop Cowie, the Primate of New Zealand, had not yet returned from his visit to England to take part in the Lambeth Conference, but was expected in a fortnight. I therefore called on his...

Aldermen versus M's.P. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902

Aldermen versus M's.P. Thus the "Coonamble Indepen dent " :-" An alderman wrote to the paper a few days ago on the question of reduction of members, and took the opportunity of remark ing that the average legislator was no " bally " good. Whereupon J. C. L. Fitzpatrick took up the cudgels on behalf of his brother members and dealt it out to all aldermanic persons in unmeasured terms. Where, asked the festive Fitz, was the Council tlxat wasn't up to its eyes in debt ? And wasn't it common knowledge that the average alder man was such a nincompoop as to lie incapable of keeping his munici pal house iu order ? It is quite true that many of our councils have long since been in a bad way financially ; they are never so happy as when going cap in hand to the Govern ment for assistance. Very few of them are aldo to meet their ordinary obligations ; while in some instances the rates are being collected by official receivers put in possession by the bank. The Government that can pass sensibl...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. JUDGES AT SHOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902

LOCAL AND GENERAL. J TTJDflBSS AîT SHOWS, ....A memortalie being signed by the naembeja of the .Pastoral and ^griçrjtur^l: Societies, for présentation to Parliament, praying tn»t recognised expert show j nages shall, in the execution of their duties, bc conveyed upon the railways free of cost. The.socbies, it4B pointed out, find difficulty in getting expert, judges from a distance owing to the expenses attendant thereon. The Minister for Agri culture has declined to arrange for their free transit by rail. The societies contend that the railways being dependent to a large extent on the agricultural industry, expert judges should have greater consideration than meted out to them. This matter was discussed at a recent meeting of the H. D. A. A. com mittee, when it was pointed out that the same difficulty was experienced in connection , with the local show. ,

Second Day. GREAT ATTENDANCE. ALL THE STATE PREMIERS PRESENT. OFFICIAL OPENING. To-day, as far as tho weather was concerned, was oven better than the opening day, if that were possible. The Bavarian Baud, of twelve per formers, played several selections on tho iawn in front of the st.nd, which contributed to the happifaction of those present. The se:ondday is THE day of the show-a public holiday when the district from one end to the other is exhaustively represented, not to speak of the influx, of folk from the city and elsewhere. The grounds presented a pretty appearance. They were not as green as we would have like to see them ; still, there was a fair amount of the emerald on the «ward, and the Kurrajong Heights away in the back ground contributed towards the beauty of the panoramic view from the stand. The ladies, as usual, were out in their best spring array. The sporting events of the day were particularly attractive lt is not often a country show is graced with the prosence o...

Football. THE KING'S SCHOOL V. HAWKESBURY COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Herald — 16 May 1902

Football. THE KING'S SCHOOL V. HAWKES BURY COLLEGE. The King's School team visited Richmond last week to play H. A. College. A very close game resulted iu a draw, each side scoring three points. After a lot of loose play of a somewhat scrambling character, Har den broke through the pack on the right wing and scored a good try. Soon after McCrae (H.A.O.) slipped round the scrum and got away, Irving taking him well and getting slightly damaged in the attempt. This made the School liven up, and by forward rushes they took the ball to the other end, where it stayed for a time. A free to the School resulted in a neat goal for Debenham. In the second half the game still remained clos*, but occasionally Lindsay and McCrae, for the College, would get away very fast till stopped by Irving, who was very safe. Smith and Debenham j made a good rush, and later on Smith ' was stopped by a good run when nearly across. Lindsay at once, by a long kick and quick follow-on, took the play to the other ...
