GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 16 February 1894

GRETA. The Weekly Cheap Train. — Noticing from the report of your Singleton correspondent in Thurs day's impression that Mr. A. J. Gould, M.L.A., had succeeded in getting the Eailway Commiasionera to try the experiment of running a woekly cheap train from Singleton and intermediate stations to Newcastle, we took an early opportunity of interviewing Mr. Hartcher re tho same, and that gentleman, he being the stationmaster fit Greta, obligingly supplies us with the Eollowing additional particulars. The train commenced to run on Thursday last, and will be continued as an experiment for three months from that date, when, should the traffic by it warrant its continuance, it will be made permanent, failing which it will doubtless be discontinued. Thursday in each week is the only day on. which the reduced fares will be granted, and the trains available under this rate shall leave Greta at 7.45 a.m. and 1.53 p.m. From Newcastle, the return trains will leave at 12.55 and 5.15 p.m., and the r...

THE STATE AS MONEYLENDER [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 16 February 1894

THE STATE AS MOSTEXIiEIfDEE Beief allusion was made in our issue of yesterday to a scheme which has been put before the Victorian Cabinet by Mr. Carter, the Treasurer. The position ia this — the agricultural interest in Victoria is suffering from the low prices of produce, the cost of production enhanoed by the protection of commodities needed by the farmer, the burden of interest payable on money borrowed, and the lack of capital. The Patterson Govern ment haa taken this unhappy industry under its special sure, and the l?reasuter thinks it cannot revive unless money be made cheaper than it is now. There is abundance of mon»y in the banks and in ths Treaeury — the Government is in fact in a peculiar position. The closing of theUBual channels of investment is driving people to the purchase of Treasury bills, which at pre sent an « ment the debt and cause a drain upon l.he funds, and the banks are holding millions which earn nothing. Mr. Carter wishes therefore to force capital into c...

LOSTOCK. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 16 February 1894

LOSTOCK. More rain, and this time not so welcome as last, as the crops had had all they needed, and rain mostly means idleness in a greater or less degree, unless in the autumn and winter months when the corn is housed and husking always on hand. The weather has now just taken a turn towards fine, and it is all that is bright and sunny, with a trifle of winter in the earlv mornings. 'We regret much to record the death, from an inflamed throat, of a little son of Mr. Luke Sulli van. Much sympathy i3 felt for the parents, more particularly as they lost another child in the same way just four year3 ago. Another very sad death took place afc Allynbrook last week. The eldest daughter of Mr. W. Collison had been badly horned in the face in saving a yonnger child from the attack of a wild cow. She was supposed to be out of danger, when tetanus set in, and she died in two daya, after great suffer ing. Both funerals were very largely attended. Feb. 15, 1894.

Brane and I). lloran batted well for the losers, and A. Drake for the winner?. Had the local men been more cautious in playing their second innings they may have reversed the game, as they had a lead ot 33 runs in the first innings ; and this fact seemed to have led them to imagine they had a clear road to victory, but the visitors, to their chagrin and astonishment, turned the tables.

'MASBLQGL'D. .CHAPTER XV.— (Continued.) 'If she will take mo to Marigold I must go,' he ?says, vacantly. Marigold wrings her little hands in a tempest of fear and misery. ' I feel as if the mo3t terrible calamity of my life were impending,' she wails. ' Ifc comes from an empty stomach,' says Nhyoina, sententiously. ' Come and eafc your dinner ; it's fit for a king.' But her complacency vanishes when, a few hours later, Doctor Hampton enters the room and lavs his hand upon her shoulder. ' My good .woman, are you not weary of that atfcire?' he inquires, and notes with satisfaction how the old woman shrinks and pales at Mb words. ? 'You see,- 1 hare ferreted out your secret,' he continues. ' You are the female counterfeiter over 'whom the country is making such a hue and cry jasfc now, and she is. your accomplice.' As he speaks he points to the half-fainting Mari gold, who i3 vainly trying to decide whether or not lie has also penetrated her real identity. 'Take that fellow to the othe...

According to the Roman Catholic Directory for 1894 (Messrs Burns and Oates), the Roman Caaholic clergy in England and Wales at the present time number sixteen bishops and 2613 priests, and Scotland has six bishopa, with 366 priests.

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 16 February 1894

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [By Zaba.] We have had a flying visit from vice-royalty since my last budget. On their way from Katoomba where they had been visiting the Chief Justice, Sir Robert and Lady Duff spent Friday night in town in order to perform the ceremony of laying the foundation-stone of the new City Mission building at the Glebe. The Glebe is not one of our other way about, and the crowd assembled to do honour to the occasion was more enthusiastic in their welcome than elegant in their apparel. All were anxious to see the Governor's lady, for in spite of the crowds which gather on official occasions there are very many people in Sydney who have never seen Lady Duff. They were well rewarded on Saturday for waiting so long in a broiling sun for when the vice-regal carriage arrived Lady Duff stepped on to the platform looking better than I had ever seen her. The mountain air does us all good, and this was particularly noticeable in the governor's wife. She wore a costume of the ...

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE ELECTORAL ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 16 February 1894

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE ELKCTORA.L ACT. At the instance of Mr. Wise, the Premier stated that the Governor had received a cable from the Secretary for the Colonies, informing him that the Cro-vn Law Officers had declared the Electoral Act invalid. ' But who submitted the bill to the Crown Law Officers in England ?' asked Mr. Winp. The Premier was unable to give any direct reply to this question, but he pointed out that every bill presented to the Governor for assent had to be accompanied with a certificate to the effect that there was nothing in the bill which would preclude his Excellency from assenting to it. In the case of the Electoral Reform Act this course had been followed, though when tbe measure reached home the Crown Law Officers had still to examine it, and certify whether it wa3 one to which her Majesty should agree at once, or whether the right ot reservation for two years should be exercised. A cablegram had been sent asking on what grounds the Act was supposed to be ...
