Osborne, President of the Progress Committee, occupied the chair. Mr. Courtney, in risiug to address the meeting, was accorded a very warm reception.

THE UNITED STATES TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 14 February 1894
THE UNITED STATES TAHIFP. Pbotec.i ion can scarcely be declared to be dead in New South 'Wales, although it; has ?been maltreated severely at the bunds of ita friends. We may look for a revival of tb» propaganda at tbe ocning generfcl election. In these circumstances the opening suntences ?oE the Congress Committee of the United ?on the Tariff bill supply a weighty argument for local freetraders. The American people, after the fullest and most thorough debate ever given by any people to their fiscal policy, have deliberately and rightly decided that the existing tariff is wrong in principle and grievously unjust in operation. They have decided, as freemen must always decide, that the power of taxation has no lawful or constitutional exercise ?except for providing revenue for the support of the Government. Every departure from this prin ciple is a departure from the fundamental principles of free institutions, and inevitably works out a groB3 inequality in tlie citizenship of a eount...

MARIGOLD. CHAPTER XIV. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 14 February 1894
MARIGOLD. CHAPTER XIV. 'If she is guilty she will return to see if there are any signs of me down tbe ravine,' thinks Leo that same night, 83 he crouches among a clump of bushes growing in the ' Brave's Walk.' At that same moment he descries a dim light approaching, and perceives that it is Ethel with a lantern in her hand. As she reaches the spot whero Leo fell from the cliffs, she directs the lantern raya. down the preci pice, and peers into ifc. ' He has dropped into the ravine, and the river lias swept away his body !' she exclaims , exult ' antly. But as she turns away, a ghostly figure confronts her. It's face is like a death's-head, but she knows it is Leo come back to haunt her. 'Murderess! you billed me !' says the appari tion, ' sternly. ' It was because I loved Hillis so I' cries Ethel, with chattering teeth. ' If you had listened to my entreaties I would not have done it.' She is checked by the awful laugh that breaks from the ' spirit' as he lifts his hand and dashes th...
LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 14 February 1894
LOCAL NEWS. A Property Tax and a Land Tax.— A corre spondent asks us to state the difference between a property tax and a land tax, and whether a land tax would affect selectors. A tax on land wan impost upon the soil alone, and is usually levied upon the unimproved value. Certainly a land tax would affect selectors-conditional purchasers are nroanectiva owners of the land they hold. There would be no land exempted under the single tax system, except land which had no declared owner ; but under other systems presumably lands held by religious and charitable bodies would bo kept free from tax. A property tax is an impost on all sort3 of property except land— houses and furniture, collections of books or paintings, jewellery, traders stocks, and in short everything that could be in cluded under the term property. THE GONDOLIER COMIC OPERA COMPANY- The second performance of this company at the Town Hall, West Maitland, last night, deepened the good impression made by their presentation...

DISTRICT TELEGEAIS. [Fkom our Corrbspondrsts.] NEWCASTLE. Thursdav. With regard to the Co-operative Colliery, there is every reason to believe that it will be closed for some time. There were 20 tributors employed previous to the disturbance on Friday last, but yesterday morning only three made their appear ance, the remainder evidently preferring to remain idle rather than run the risk of suffering violence at the hands of the unionists. The engine men, topmen, and shiftmen have received, it is said, 14 days' notice. This iB regarded as an indication that the mine will be clased for some time. ine manager (Mr. Barr) declines to give any information as to the intentions of the proprietors. In fact, he states that he does not really know what they aie. It seems extraor dinary, however, after applying for police protec tion, and ib being now abundantly provided, that there should be no necessity for their presence. If the mine should be closed, the tributors will run no risk, inasmuch...

COONABARABRAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 February 1894
COQMABARABRAEtf. During the week we had something like two inches of rain, which will have a beneficial effect upon vegetation. Stock as a rule are in good con dition. Fruit is plentiful and of firat-class quality. The different vineyards and orchards have yielded prolific crops. The two mills are working. The sound of the whistles is cheerful music. Coonabarabran buyers are, I think I am safe in saying, giving the highest price in New South Wales if not in the colony for wheat, prices ranging from 3s 9d to 4s. Mr. Slack, 3t Murrinjjundy.on the Talbragar, sold 1200 bushels here this week. Mr. Slack resides within thirty miles of Wellington or Dubbo, and something approaching SO miles from Coonabarabran.
