POPULAR DISCUSSIONS. I Are Women More Trustworthy Than Men In Friendship and Business ? Here is a subjcct upon which men and women are invited to write their true opinions and actual experiences; briefly and entertainingly as possible. There is good soope for anecdote as well as -for expression of personal belief. So that our country and Intercolonial readers may have a fair chance, letters will be re ceived Up to Thursday, Maroh 28. Those who oan forward them earlier should do so. As usual, one guinea will be awarded the writer of the letter adjudged the best. Tho Paris police lately discovered a re markable hotel in the Faubourg St. Antoirie. It was a resort for thieves. The rooms had double ceilings, the floors had trap-doors, and all the drawers in the furniture had false bottoms.

Before the CURTAIN. LYCEUM—" THE MASQUERADERS." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

[?] LYCEUM—' THE MASQUERADERS.' The last five nights of Henry Arthur Jone3 ? much-talked-about play, ' The Mnsqueraders,' are announced at the Lyceum. It is certainly a pioce to be seen. London criticism went almost solidly in favor of it, and perhaps no Critic went nearer to the mark than Clement Scott when he concluded his remarks on the production of ' The Masqueraders ' — whioh tie aescrioes as a really Driuiant play — as follows : ' Thus tho curtain falls on a play that everyone- ought to see, 'and dwell upon and think about.' That it is well put on ab the Lyceum goes with out saying, and evon the most captious critic— and such is in evidence in Sydney — must admit the interpretation is thoroughly sound and convincing. Miss Olliffe, despite the fact she has not thoroughly got over the. effects of the long sea voyage, continues to win new admirers nightly with hor sketch of Dulcie, whilst Messrs. Elwood and Compton, although handicapped by being brought into, bold relief with Bu...

SIX SHILLINGS AN HOUR OVERTIME. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

SIX SHILLINGS AN HOUR OVERTIME. There is a good deal of overtime being worked in * one of the Departments. In on'e branch two of the best officer's were removed recently on the plea of retrench ment, and as a consequence all hands have ha'd to work until 6 every evening since. Many in this branch have been working until 10 or 11 at night since the beginning of the year. It appears that while the Service generally is largely over-manned, there are sections of it over-worked. As a general thing the clerical stuffs are not allowed overtime, but in one section, at any rate, the professional staff receive over time at. the :.'£at'e' of their salaries. It is said that the officer in charge is one of those who works overtime, and he does it by lolling in his rootp, iu slippered feott reading, and occasionally looking into the general room to see that the staff are engaged. . He acts as a species of time keeper. His overtime costs over 6s an hour. What it is. worth to the State, is another ...

A COMMISSION'S STRANGE OMISSION. The methods o£ Civil Service Commissions are peculiar. Apart from the general Civil Service, Commission, which is making an inquiry into the whole service, there are oiie or two other Departmental Commis sions manoeuvring around and causing general unrest and dissatisfaction.

Carleton, pincipal assistant- ; engineer, Harbors and Rivers Branch; and ; J. Davis, supervising engineer, Sewerage Construction. Branch. The enquiries of this. .Commission miay .or may riot have useful results, but tli'eir system is cer tainly incousiste'nt.

THE BETTER WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

TIIE BETTER WAY. According to the Church Service, ' When the wicked man forsaketh his wickedness, and doeth that which is lawful - and right, he shall save his soul alive,' and those persons who have been in the habit of only associating the organisation known as the Active Service Brigade with Anar chistic literature and disorderly conduct at public meetings, will be agreeably surprised to find that it has taken, in hand a move ment likely to .be of much greater value to humanity than either of its earlier practices. This new departure consists in organising a contingent of its members to work on tribute a coal and shale mine beiouging to Mr. John Hordern, at Went wortli Falls, that gentleman having leased the property for three years for a royalty of 3d per ton on the coal raised. There can be no question that this is a much better way of regenerating socioty than howling down speakers at public meetings or cir culating. revolutionary aud libellous literature, and we are glad to b...

SIXTY THOUSAND A YEAR OUT OF POCKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

SIXTY THOUSAND A YEAR OUT OF POCKET, We have recently been contending that the Railway ConstructionBranch shonld be removed from the Works Department — and from the political influence which means extravagant use of the moneys contributed by the public for the Government and development of the country — and placed under the Railway Commis sioners. On the Commissioners de volves the onus of working the railways profitably, and as this is impossible if construction has been extravagantly carried out, it is only reasonable that they should have charge of construction also. These remarks are called for by the return presented to Parlia ment on the motion of Mr. Varney Parkes, showing the coat of the more recently constructed railways, and ' how they don't pay !' # « * Tho return is very instructive. It not only indicates that a number of non-paying railways have been con structed, but it also affords striking evidence of the apathy of our people, who for years allow a system to continue...

WOMEN AND THE CHURCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

WOMEN AND THE CHURCHES. The tendency of the woman question to 'bob up serenely ' has been illustrated during the past week in two different directions, the one in connection with the deputation to the Premier on the vexed question on Women's Suffrage, and the other at the Wesleyan Conference in re gard to the right ot women to become cir cuit stewards, and inferentially to occupy othor representative positions on the governing body of the church. In the latter case the claim, it appears, was made on behalf of a ' modest elderly, spectacled dame, who would not do anyone any harm' ; but there does not appear to have been any accompanying guarantee that ad mitting the right would not open the doors to ladies of contrary qualities, assuming for a moment that there are any such within the fold3 of the denomination in question. Still, it does seem anomalous that women, who are acknowledged to be nowadays the mainstays of all the churches, and who probably furnish a pro- ? portion of at le...

THE MINIMISATION OF GAMBLING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

THE MINIMISATION OF GAMBLING. The question of licensing racing clubs and legalising the totalisator is again to be brought before Parliament, this time by Mr. Angus Cameron, but judging from previous experience, it can hardly be said with much prospect of success. If the question had to be decided by the' dictates of common sehse, or even by the honest opinions of legislators, there Would be some 'probability of Mr. Cameron's proposals, be coming law, but it is a well khown fact that member's of Parliament are dominated by the prevalance of. cant . amongst tlie pro fessed opponents of gambling in apy shape or form. These persons persistently vefusd to recognise the facts of human nature, and instead of endeavoring to stem the abnso of tho gambling instinct, try to effect the impossible by eradicating it alto gether from the human breast and human society, oblivious of the fact that they themselves are amongst the sinners. It is almost superfluous to remark that all com merce is a sp...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BURLESQUE LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

NOTES AND COMMENTS. . %r- — ? l BURLESQUE LEGISLATION. There could hardly bo any surer mealis of discrediting the Legislative Assembly or strengthening the hands of the enemies of democratic government than the proceed ings which have taken place in connection with the Eight Hours' Bill during the past week. The ridiculous enactment of a new crime; to consist of working beyond a given number of hours per day, is not only a legislative farce, but a gratuitous insult to the manhood of the country, which is thereby assumed to be unable to take' care of itself iu such matters; coutrary to the well-known facts of the case, which are a matter Of history. A stranger to the country might well suppose that there was no such thing as ah eight hours' system in operation with our trades he're, or that it was a matter of tlie most partial applica tion, judging by this frantic attempt at co'ercive legislation; but if he happened to be here and witnessed tho triumphal pro cession of labor on tho f...

THE FINANCES OF FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

THE FINANCES OF FEDE RATION. Every practical exposition of the real meaning of Federation, and what is involved by its adoption, not only in respect to the several oolonies con cerned, but to each unit of the com munity, is a step towards its realisa tion of far greater value than an unlimited quantity of rhetorical fire works or elocutionary filagree. The reason for the apathy or, more pro perly speaking, the reserve exhibited by the bulk of the people towards the subject, is that too little attention has been given to the prosaic aspects of the object in view, in regard to the welfare of the individual taxpayer and what it is going to co3t him. In this, as in all othor great political movements, their real interest for the people i3 contained in the answer to thoso questions. Stripped of the glamor with which politicians love to surround their proposals, the questions which every individual Smith, Brown, Jones, and Robinson has to ask is | whether Federation will make him freer, h...

TOBACCO MYOPIA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 17 March 1895

TOBACCO MYOPIA. 'Did you ever hear of tobacco blindness?' said a doctor. It is something we meet with quite frequently, yet not so much an one would suppose, when the great consumption of tobacco is considered. But tobacco myopia, or short-sightedness, is a complaint we iiave to treat daily ; in acute cases I prohibit smoking altogether, but as a rule I recommend to use nothing stronger but Frossard's Cavour Cigars. By a new process ot evaporating the tobacco in vacuo, the greater part of the nicotine is removed, the percentage left being smaller than in any other oigar. T,he highest medical authorities in Switzerland havo ap proved of it.' The Cavours are worked by hand, of the best material, tbe shape, though uncommon to many people, has the advantage of being a cheap one to make, and enables the manu facturers to put all the value iu the leaf employed. Tiiis is the secret why they can be retailed in neat packets of 8 for Is. The fragrancy equals many a 6d oigar, and is superior t...
