A Fearful Tragedy in Sydney. THE MAYOR OF BURWOOD SHOT. Monday afternoon. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 February 1894
A Fearful Tragedy in Sydney. THE MAYOR OF BURfVOOD SHOT. [From the Press Telegraph Association.] Monday afternoon. A terrible tragedy took place at Burwood this morning, when Wm. Redfearn, for many yeara Council Clerk to that Borough, shot the Mayor (Alderman W. Paisley), and then shot himself fatally. The trouble arose from the fact that Redfearn was to be superseded in his office by a yoitng man. For many years past he |had held the position of Council Clerk, but as he was grow ing old in the service, it was thought the services of a younger man would be required. This morn ing the Mayor was to have taken over his books, and for that purpose visited Redfearn's office. On entering the place the Mayor was surprised to see Redfearn in possession of three loaded revolvers) one of which was taken up by the clerk, who fired at his Worship before the latter could retreat. Wounded as he was, Paisley got out and rushed down the railway parade in a dying state* but managed to reach Alderman...

The Turanville Stud. [Br the Vagrant.] Although it is close upon twelve months since racing men and sportsmen foregathered in such large numbers at the first annual sale of blood stock bred by Mr. Thomas Cook at Turanville, yet many pleasant memories of the event survive, aud scores of sportsmen are anxiously awaiting the coming around of the 20th instant, in order to assist at a similar function.. In order to give my readers an idea of what is to be brought under the hammer by Higgons, Marshall, and Co. on the eventful day, I made the pilgrimage to the beauti ful estato a few days ago, and it goes without saying that I enjoyed myself thoroughly. It was with some fear and trembling that I left Maitland on Friday evening, for the rain had fallen heavily throughout the greater portion of the afternoon, whilst as day gave place to night the stars peeped in very uncertain fashion from an inky sky. How ever there were few signs of the downpour as tho train crept upward and onward, and I ...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. HINTON SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 February 1894
LETTSKS TO THE EDITOE. HINTON SCHOOL OF ARTS. Sir,— In reply to some of the speakers at the annual meeting of the School of Arts, Hinton, the Bev. Mr. Davis in speaking of the colony said it was young and full of energy and life, but there was something in the colony that did not like to come under the yoke. Would that rev. gentlemen like the colony to bear a yoke ? It appears to me thab he would. Well,-to cast the yoke aside and deal with a few remarks on the naturo of the colonials, I should very much like the rev. gentle man to explain what he means by the bucking element of colonial nature, as he does not express himself very clearly. When he use3 the phrase of buaking element, does he allude to the free-born Australian or the brumbies of the Australian ,Wood3 ? ? It is an evident fact that foreign in- 1 truders would have very little influence over the strong-minded Australians. Mv. George Ling in seconding the adoption of the report went so far as to make a few remarks in a so...

' I ask Heaven to give me strength to undo Ethel Carleton's evil work. Little did aho think £ was watching her from the busheB when she locked that young girl in the cabin,' ahe muttered. Sues found Marigold lying insensible upon the floor. The old woman's desire to circumvent Ethel seemed to cive hpr now sfcrnnckh. She hurried outt-ide, and collecling some sticks, soon had a fire blazing upon the heattb. The heat, added to a few drops of liquor from her flask, soon revived the young girl, and she sat up, gauing bewildcredly about. 'Will you tell me who you are, and where I am ?' she asked, timidly, of the old woman. 'I found you freezing in the haunted cabin. Have you so knowledge as to how you got here ?' inquires Nbyoma.
