THE POPE'S ENCYCLICAL. The personal character of Leo the Thirteenth is euchtbafche speakB with power not only ex cathedrd to hie own vast flock, but to the ?world at large. In an encyclical Letter recently issued by his Holiness, and put in circulation throughout the congregations of the faithful, appear these pregnant passages, which gaia weight from the conspicuous wis 4em, prudence, and experience of thair author, as well as irom dib exalted position, neo the Thirteenth recognises many eauseB at work in the present condition of things, to looBen the bonds of public order and to withdraw the people from boudcL principles of life and conduct. And then his Holiness proceeds -. There are three influences which appear to us to have the chief place in affecting this down-grade movement of society. These are— first, the distnste to a simple and laborious life ; secondly, repugnance to suffering of any kind; thirdly, the forgetfulnesB ' of the future life. We deplore— and those who judge...

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 February 1894
ECHOES OP SPORT. Although it in about fifteen years since Odd Stockings was foaled, it is evident the old chestnut does not lag superfluous on the stnsre, for he won a race at the annual picnic races at Walcha on Friday and got a situation in a couple of other events. Odd Stockings, who is now owned by Messrs. P. and A. Fenwicke, is really a wonderful old hor3e, and if tne expression loveable can be used m connection with an equine, then the chestnut thoroughly deserves it, for I know no animal that I am fonder of. The veteran is a8 game as any bull-dog that ever chewed meat, he remains as scind as a bell, although he has travelled all over Australia and galloped thousands of miles, and there are few better hackneyB either for a lady or gentleman than my ancient friend. So far as I can learn, Odd Stock ings is by Belphoegar, but thore are people who swear by all the gods that he is by the stolen Duke of Athol, but they can give no sound reason for the assertion, unless one is satisf...

FORCING DOWN WAGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 February 1894
FOBCING DOWN WAGES. Sib, — Among the many ills placed upon the shoulders cf the much abused capitalist are those connected with the forcing down of wages occasioned by the sweating system. What is designated ' sweating' is one of the results of a superabundance of unskilled labour, and is practised almost exclusively in places where population is most dense, and the struggle for existence most desperate ; and it is here also that the prices of manufactured commodities are lowest, and the tribe of bargain hunters most numerous. Yet few appear to note the intimate connection between starvation wages and made np goods sold for little. more than the actual cost of the materials. But who are the principal purchasers of these fruits of the sweating system, the people who want to obtain for a penny the value of twopence, al though at' the cost of suffering and misery of others. The trades unions regard it a grave offence when a labourer accepts leas than a given rate of wagon, and sternly ...
