OUR RAILWAY MEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
OUR RAILWAY MEN. ' Traveller 'writes regarding the ' funny ways of railway men referred to in the second article on the subject of ' Our Railways' — I might point out that the ways of some of 'thorn are the reverse of funny, being about as impudent and disobliging as any public servants could be. 1 itecentiy 1 nau occasion to travel trom Albury [ to Syduoy, and having a first-okas ticket I not unnaturally desired to ride in a first-class com partment. ? Owing to tho crowded state of the carriages 1 travelled as far as Wapga second class. On reaching, that station I requested one of the highest, officials to get me a seat, but he insoleutly replied that it Was not his business, as I should have made the request at the station where I first entered. We were packed like sardines, and surely this offioial oould have put on an extra carriage, or at least been oivil.

THE POLITICAL PARABLE. Concerning Certain Secrets of State. (Br 'Qui Vive.'} This is tho politioal. parable. . Wherefore let us dissimulato. For dissimulation is the soul of politics, and he who putteth his fiat feet upon the stump studieth $lie same. Yea, verily, he studieth how he may best cop the wily vote upon the wing, and lio\v he may get upon the top of U10 poll and be a drawer of oof from the Treasury. And he deceiveth the people with fair phrases, and takoth them down like old boots. Making promises even as fast as the horse may trot. Saying, ' Put me in, my brethren ; put me in, that I may build the North Shore bridge and make ye a railway-station at the Circular Quay, and seoure remission of the taxes, and cause the land to overflow with beer and money.' Whereat the peoplo, a3 ono who hath been deceived by a Circean song and made weak and pliant unto all time, inolineth its large flop ear to scoop up in the hollow thereof all the honeyed phrases of the orator. And as ofte...

THE REVENUE RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
THE REVENUE RETURNS. As thia is the last day of March the quarterly and monthly revenue returns will not be completed until to-morrow. As regards the rail and tramways, this quarter will be at a disadvantage compared with the corresponding one of last year. Easter falls later, and the considerable revenue derived during this favorite time for travelling will therefore be credited to the next quarter of the year. It. is fully ex pected that with fine weather the return during the coming holidays will more than make up for any shortage that may result in this quarter of the yea,r. A considerable rail and tram revenue was received yester day from the races and bicycle sports.
DETERMINED SUICIDE. A Man Cuts His Throat and then Drowns Himself. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
DETERMINED SUICIDE. A Man Cats His Throat and then Drowns Himself. Me. J. C. Wooke, City Coroner, held an inquest at the South Sydney Morgue to day touching the death of Georgo Gordon Auchinachie, whose body was recovered from the water near Keep's wharf, Leich hardt, yesterday. It appears that some bystanders saw deceased fall iuto the water, and the first impression was that death had resulted from drowning, but a very cursory examination revealed the fact that the man had cut his throat before falling into the water. Auchinachie had been out of employment for some time, and was in a very despondent mood. A verdict of suicide while temporarily insane was returned.
THE POOR. THE POOR. One Thousand Children Need Food. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
THE POOR. One Thousand Children Need Food. We learn from the manager of the Benevo lent Asylum, Edward Maxted, that the distress existing at the institution is ex ceptionally great. An appeal is being made 011 behalf of ' 1000 little children in need of food.' Thousands of destitute children aro tea ana clocnea tlirougnout the year by the society. The fathers of these children 1 are dead, and the mothers, through ill health and obher causes, cannot make pro vision for their helpless little ones, who must necessarily suffer privation if left unassisted. The appeal pleads fpr those in the mot forbunate walks of life bo re member their Sweet childish dayB that wero as long As twenty days are now, and to reflect upon the poverty of the children on whoso behalf the petition is put forth. We will be pleased to receive subscriptions in response to Mr. Maxted's appeal.
NET FISHING IN THE HARBOR. (TO THE EDITOR "SUNDAY TIMES") [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
NET FISHING IN THE HARBOR. (to the editor ' sonday times') 'H.B.F., replying to tho secretary of the A.F.S. on this subject, says the evil complained of does not exist beyond the Italian portion of the fishing aommuuity, who are a menace to the industry with their sunken prawn nets. The amending of the Bill in the matter of tho sunken nets would, he con siders, be sufficient, and he goes 011 to slate: — Ihe faddists (ro so tar as to preolude set-line fishing, which seems out of all reason, and preposterous in the extreme to tho mind of any sane individual. Set-lines were never known to catch or destroy small fish, and con sequently if set-line fishing ia injurious to their eulturo, all lipe, fishing must be so. Hence they should strike out the word ' set,' and pray that ' all line fishing ' be prohibited, as they ' oannot have their cakeand eatittoo.'' Then again, there probably has been a laxity on the part of all fishermen in tho past in assisting to destroy small fish indiscrimin...
LONG HOURS FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
LONG HOURS FOR WOMEN. ' A Woman,' writes concerning the long hours which women who work in shops are compelled to stand — 12 and 13 a day and 18 on Saturday. She wants to know why instead of an eight-hour bill aa early closing measure, similar to that in Now Zealand and Victoria, should not tie passed by tna .Legislature. Why not, sue says, ' close the shops at G o'clock and 10 o'clock 0:1 Saturday. You will find weary shopmuu and shopwomen behind the counters terving the very mon and womon who have only eight hours work now. Where is tbo consistency of tha thing P Tho last ones iu the shops are the wives of the eight-hour man. There would not be half the immorality in our city, and respectable people would not bo afraid to send their growing young women to business. Thero uro parents who would rather stint thamselvea than allow their girls to go to business, the late hours aud being subjected to insult in the streets in the evening are all- great objec tions.'
BY THE WAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
BY THE WAY. Wht do not the Railway Commissioners summon up courage to face the inevitable instead of making two bites at their penny cherry over the railway trams. It will probably be said that thB public should be thankful for small mercics, and gratefully accept the half-penny which is to be knocked off the fare on the journey from Redfern to the city, but the fact is it has long since been generally agreed that the popular penny is the proper price for the ride, more especially as nine-tenths of the patrouB on this section are railway travel lers who have already paid, or are about to pay, quite sufficient for being carried to, or starting from the heart of the city. How ever, the result of this three-halfpenny compromise will probably, be first to deprive the 'bus owners of some of the traffic, then tho 'btis fares will be reduced to a penny, and after losing a lot of revenue the Railway Commissioners will haye to follow suit. There ia qo doubb that a penny city section on all t...

HEAVY BETTING ON THE BICYCLE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
HEAVY BETTING ON THE BICYCLE EACES. We hear that a good deal of money has lately beeu chanj^ing hands on the coming bicycle races, and the Victorian champion Beems to be the favorite. Nevertheless, we would rather back our New South Wale3 cracks, as for endurance and steadiness of nerves ihey ought not to be beaten, having bad the advantage, and we may add, having wisely availed themselves of using nothing stronger than Frossard's Cavour Cigars. Tbey know very well that this smoke, on account of its mildness, does not affect the nerves, and is .therefore adopted by all people who have to economise their vitality, and who cee-i to steel ibeir nerves for a coming strain.*
HAWKESBURY RACES. Common the Rowley Mile Winner. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
HATOESBUBY races. j Common the Rowley Mile 'Winner. A good crowd of people mustered at Rose hill yesterday to witness the first day's racing of the Hawkesbury Autumn Meeting. The weather was perfect but for the presenoe of a rather strong breeze, and the going was in fine tv.ndition. Mr. C. S. Guest had his managerial arrangements in good order, and the sport was carried out without a hitch or an unwelcorne item. Many visitors from the Eichmond district were noticeable in the paddock, and a few Melbourne sportsmen wero observed iu the reserve. Eacing began with the Hurdle Eace, for which thero were only five runners. After his performance on the previous Saturday it was not surprising that Highborn II. was favorite. He went out at 6 to 4, and never gave his supporters any anxiety, for he led all the way. Ogre went up in company in the last mile, but the black outjumped him at every obstacle until at the last Ogre came down, giving Mulry a heavy fall, which was not attended, however,...
