A SUCCESSFUL COURT OF CONCILIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 February 1894
A SUCCESSFUL COUET OP CONCILIATION. Discussion upon the item in the Attorney - G-eneral's estimates has been hang ap in the Legislative Assembly that Sir G-eorge Dibbs may confer with Mr. Cook and Mr. Cann, and ascertain whether they can suggest a practicable amendment in the Trades Disputes Conciliation* and Arbitration Act. The complaint against the Act seems to be that it is very much, a dead letter. We concur however with Sir G-eorge Dibbs in thinking it ought to nave a fair trial, and that means a fuller trial. In connection with this subject it is interesting to turn to a report in last Saturday's Quecnslander embody ing a delineation ot the working during the last ten months of the Queensland Courts of. Conciliation Act of 1892. The report is in the form of an interview with ' Mr. MacDonneLl, o&e of the Conciliation Justices appointed under the statute. It ia explained in some preliminary remarks that the Queensland Act was adopted from the system in successful employ...

The words Eedfearn complained of Bed man usinj? while he was in the Council were to the effect that he (Redfearn) ha...

^PFflTAI TFIFHIAMQ ullsviiiij liiiuLillHiUflsJ. [From the Press Telegraph Association.] SYDNEY. Tnesdav afternoon. A young man named Frederick Poole, was to-day charged with having fraudulently appropriated ^815, the property of Frederick Eoss. Prosecutor stated that on November 20 lasfe he was introduced to accused, who represented himself as a builder and contractor, and entered into an agreement to build him a house of the value of .£150. As a deposit Eoas paid accused £15 upon the distinct under standing that the building would be commenced within a week after the payment of the deposit. No start was made with the place, and although Eobb repeatedly demanded the money back, he could get no satisfaction from Poole further than that Hayes, his (Poole's) partner, had gone back, on him and nothing could be done. Ernest Broughton, manager of the Universal Land Bank, said he heard the agreement made between them, but from what he subsequently discovered, he considered there never was ...

[?] [From the Press Telegraph1 Associatioif.] London, Monday. A destructive hurricane has passed over Great Britain, doing immense damage. A number of factories at Dudley and Warwickshire were wrecked, and churches were unroofed. A steamer was swamped off Caiater, Norfolk, when the life boats rescued seventy-five passengers and crew.

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 February 1894
ECHOES OP SPORT. After all there may be something in ono or two of those starting machines, although person ally I am not in favour of their adoption ; bat some of them have satisfied experienced racing men, and at Canterbury Park at least the days of the man with the red flag are supposed to be numbered. With him, too, it is hoped will go those charges of favouritism, carelessness and other indiscriminate offences which are fired broadside after broadeido into the serried ranks of starters. I am t6ld the stewards of the Canterbury Club have decided to in future use a patent starting gate, in vented by a Mr. Grey, and said to bo a very simple and effective apparatus. Of course the introduction of the patent starter threatens to knock out the Distressed Jockeys' Fund, but no one will miss it Borely, and if there be a necessity for such monetary help it should be very easy to design something more effective and useful than the fund so queerly handled by the A.J.C., and which amounts, ...

BISTBXCT NEWS. [Feom oub Corkespondenis.] PATERSOM. On Saturday a most enjoyable picnic was given here by Rev. and Mrs. Shaw in honour of Mrs. Bobert Robin3, on the occasion of her marriage with Mr. Robert Robins, of Queensland, and conse quent departure from our midst. On Friday grave fears had been entertained regarding the weather, but Saturday proved a beautiful day — just made for the picnic. The young lady in whose honour it was given has, as Miss Brackenreg, beea a teacher in St. Paul's Sunday School for eleven years, and ia all departments of church and social work has been a beloved and valued helper, and it is with regret for our less, but most earnest wishes for her happiness, that we let her go forth from us. The picnic parties, combining the choirT^JBiblo class, and Sun day Sshool, left the Post Office at 11 a.m., and proceeded three or four miles across the Paterson Bridge to a delightful camping ground. The dinner, provided by our boloved incumbent and his wife, waa a...

GRETA. THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 February 1894
GRETA. THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS My wire of yesterday evening gives the result of the voting here in so far as the election of aldermen and auditors went, but the vote on the local option question not being available in time to suit your going to press, I now furnish the result of that also : — Section I. To permit any increase in the number of licensea 30 Against any increase ? 78 Majority ? 48 ? Section II. To permit the removal of licenses... ............... 48 Against allowing removals ? 67 Majority ? ....;..... ? ..'. 9 This result will show that we. uphold the local option projects by a total majority of 57— -not much out of a voting power of 560 after all— yet a proof that we are still on the side of prohibition. How ever, we yet possess five public-houses in Greta, and we fancy should thirst overtake us at any time— and the humble 3d be handy — that number ought to suffice. Referring back to the incidents of the polling day,' we may add that it was a wild, choatic time while i...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. "A WORM WILL TURN." [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 February 1894
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. 'A WORK WILL TURN.' Sib.— Under the above heading a person signing himself ' J. Kiley' has the audacity to take exception to some remarks made in your columns by one signing himself ' O Tempora O Mores.' Well, now, although I am one ot those who had hoped that the long-exiBting friction between the two towns had died out, the letter signed— but surely not penued by the aforesaid J. Riley, in my opinion calls forth a ireply. I am pleased to observe that Mr. Chambers instigation of brhiRing Klley out of his shell, and were la pubHc man I should treat Riley's letter with eimilar contempt to that, evinced by tho Mayor ot East Maitland. At the same time I think that Mr. Chambers lacked his usual discretion when in his nomination speech he referred to the West aB an example of profligate expenditure, etc. I am not surprised to notice that this Ttiley cannot see anything wrong in comparing on a public platform the positions of the two towns (La?t and West), but 1 cor...
ELLALONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 February 1894
ELLALONG. Tha last few days have been very warm, with every appearance of continuing ; but previous to the warm days we were favoured with a splendid rain, which was very much needed, and which has revived the dying crops and grass, which now look to be evererreen. The farmers all atroear to be in good spirit again; they are busily engaged in turning over the soil for another crop in the line of wheat, oats, and barley. Maize pulling will begin in the course of a few weeks. In fact some small lots have been pulled, and good samples can be seen. It is a great pity that the farmers of this district have not a con venience in the way of a train to carry off their abundant crops. The anticipated cricket match between Greta and Ellalong, which was to have come off on Saturday last, fell through, for what reason we do not know. On Saturday next two cricket matches are to be played, one between the representatives of the Lochinvar Cricket Club and Ellalong, and the other between Wattagon a...
