HALL CAINES TWO VISIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 24 March 1895
HALL CAINE'S TWO VISIONS. Readeks who remember Philip being haunted by himself in 'The Manxman' will be interested to learn that the incident is founded on actual fact twice repeated. A good many years ago, when Mr. Hall Caine had not long been in London, and was living iu Clement's Inn, he went to a T»1ar»a ir» TTrilhrirn Tin f. -fn/r fmm raJ-iora f-.Vir* First Avenue Hotel now stands. There he saw his own reflection, as it wore, advancing towards him. Ho did not overwork in those days, and was not in any way in a nervous condition, so he took it for granted that he was walking towards a looking glass, but on examining the wall he found that there was neither a mirror nor any other kind of surface capable of reflecting. The second time it happened he was living at Keswick, in a lonely house on the slopes of Skiddaw. He was then working very hard, and used to sit up late after the rest of the household had gone to bed. One night he looked up from his writing and saw on the sofa — on...
BY THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 24 March 1895
BY TEE WAY. Politicians are now beginning to agitate themselves about', the next Governor, and what he ought to be paid. It is already proposed to reduce the screw to the miserable pittance of .£5000 a year, or rather less than a hundred a week. Thia is all very well, but we ought to make sure nrst wnetner tnere is not; a gover nor's Trade Union in existence, and if the above sum is not under the minimum wage for a working Governor that under stands his business. In any event it might, of course, be possible to get a black leg Governor to come and take the job for less money, but then we don't want to have to call out the police, and the military, and the fire brigades to protect the windows of Government House from being bombarded by a mob of infuriated unionist Governors, or perhaps to pro tect Mr. Schey or Mr. O'Snllivan or Mr. Rose from the attacks of a contingent of lords and dukes detailed for picket duty. In any event, if the wages are to be reduced we may expect that future ...

HERE AND THERE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 24 March 1895
HERE AND THERE. [Coal strike pending at Zigzag Mine. Three cases of leprosy in one week in Queensland. A second article on our fire fighters will appear next week. Is a railway guard's work as dangerous and important as an engine-driver's ? Two men at Barraba last week took 70oz of gold out of- a hole in an hour. During the past week 159 men have been assisted into the country as fossickers for gold. The revenue of West Australia is £ 100,000 a month — just double what it was two years ago. Mr. Russell's forecast for to-day : — Weather generally fine, with light variable winds from S: to E. Fisheries Commission at Gosford yester day, and at Tuggerah Lakes in the evening, taking evidence of fishermen. Professional fishermen not only take undersized fish from Sydney Harbor, but spoil the breeding grounds with their nets. They fine people in Adelaide for offering for sale fruit infested with codlin moth. That might be done here with advantage to the consumer. If the police peppered a f...
A PLEA FOR REPUBLICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 24 March 1895

They are smoked by the mil lions; they are a genuine democratic article, criminating from a Republican country.*

Both reserves were well patronised, and there was ample evidence that the Rosehill Cup was a draw. The arrange ments for conveyance of visitors by rail were perfect, and there was not a fault to be found with the Arrangements carried out by Mr. P. O'Mara and his staff f oar conducting the day's sport successfully, whilst the catering was particularly well attended to. Rosehill never looked better^ and the racing track was in very fast condition. Backers wore pretty successful in anticipating results, and although the Cup winner was, riot a well-known metro politan performer, he was well supported on the strength of several good gallops at Rand wick. There was a rather general opinion that Plain Bi...

A NEW CEMETERY TRUSTEE. Liverpool, Ootober 30, 1894. The Mayor and Aldermen,— Sirs, — As a private citizen I have been struck with sur prise at the constant interment in the ceme teries within- the town boundaries, in ground, .too, much of which has been previously used for the reception of the deed. The Govern* . a ment haff.recently dedioated a- large portion ' ^ of land- without the town boundaries, but, /(! within reasonable walking of the centre of ;? population. This has been suitably fenced .' and apportioned to the several denominations , and for which separate trustees have.been ap/ pointed. By-laws have been prepared, and in tb case of the Church of England portion, approvi ?. and gazetted. But it seems to me that int( ir ment will continue within a few yards of c-iur homes if measures are not taken by tho Council to close tho existing graveyards r js a safeguard to the publio health and py'Mio decency. I do not write in view of the. fact that' I am one of the recently app...
