Balmain Osborne' Cricket Club Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 26 September 1885

Balmain Osborne Cricket Club Concert. The above was held in the Temperance Hall on Tuesday evening last. There was a very large attendance, and the different pieces rendered by the performers were     thoroughly appreciated. Through severe illness Mr. W. Johnson was unable to preside, his duties being ably carried out   bv Mr. W. Watt, who in a few well spoken remarks eulogised the secretary of the club and members for the manner in which they had worked in arranging this enter- tainment,: and for the success they had achieved in bringing together such a large audience. Selections on piano, well ren- dered by Mrs. Clubb, and a gentleman amateur opened the programme. Miss Breakwell sang 'When will the birds come back' and 'They say that all things change' sweetly, and Mr. Fergusson was successful in his song, ' Those girls at the school.'' Mr. S. Osborne gave two recita- tions, one 'The Raven,' in a masterly manner, and ' Our Folks,' for which h...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 3 October 1885

JT0PIC8 OF THE DAY. If we in Australia liave time to consider events taking place outside our own country, we cannot but be satisfied at the quiet and- complete revolution which has takeivplace iri the south of Europe during the last' few dkys. This revolution which makes Roumelia and Bulgaria one is merely the union of two people— almost of kindred blood—certainly of kindred interest and v purpose; This, union would have taken ? . place'' at the ' termination of the Russo Turkish war could the Powers have agreed. . , ? j- - '(-fought Russia purposed taking Roumelia, even after her noble expenditure of blood in the Czar's cause, but though this was ^prevented, the real aim of the Roumelians was frustrated by her northern ' ; r ally, with a view to future designs. Now l~ Bulgaria, who, thanks to the imperishable . . work of Gladstone, was almost freed from '- 'tlie Turk, joins the dominion of Roumelia, and Europe has now a new spirited young ' ; nation in the very quarter where it wa...

HOW OUR ALDERMEN MISSPEND OUR MONEY. No. III. to The editor. I Sib, — Whilst upon the subject of botched up I contracts, and the way in which our aldermen uselessly spend our money I would draw public attention to one of the most glaring [icrform nuccs which I have yet dealt, with, and which I think must be classified as 'almost without parallel in the island' continent of Australia. I refer to the Happy Valley drainage which our intellectual aldermen call a sewer. Is it not a fnct that -the way in which this work was being performed, was the laughing stock of the borough at the time .' And if I nm correctly informed, did not every alderman in the' coun- cil inspect this work ! Let us now look at the facts and tijjurcs in connection with this case. To begin with, the council borrowed .-610,01)0, after which the aldermen engaged in some thing like the game of ' Yankee gr.ibi' for it, caring very little how it was spent so long as each got ns much ns he could for his own Ward.
