DISTRICT NEWS. DUMGOG. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 February 1894
DISTRICT NEWS. [Feom our, CoEn.E8ron»BMifi.] DUNGOQ. A cricket match was played on the Recreation Ground on Thursday last between players chosen from the firmB of H. C. Dark and Co. and Edwd. Piper versus Skelton and Walker, storekeepers. It is said to be the inauguration of a half-holiday association, which I hope it is. So much interest was taken in the match that nearly the whole of the townspeople went to the ground to witness the match. As some of the players had nover before donned leather, it waa no surprise to see them' m tvous, and it amused not a few to see some of the placers when going in to take their bat undecided as to which leg the leather should be on. How ever ooth sides conducted themselves splendidly. Henney for the winning team, and Green for the losers were most effective with the ball. A return match is likely to take place shortly. Appended are the scores : — Dark and Piper. First Innings. W. Gieen, b Henney ? 14 H. E. Young, b Henney ? , ? '. ? 5 S. Brooker,...

LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 February 1894
LATE GENERAL NEWS. Among the proposals which Bhould engage the attention of the unemployed is that of forming a fishing settlement somewhere on the Northern coast. This could be done at very slight expendi ture, and it is probable the settlement wouia oe self-supporting from the outset. ? 1 A lad named Allen, while walking in front of the J Balaclava Hotel, Whroo, espied what he thought I to be a speck of gold. On prizing it out with his knife he found it to be a specimen weighing 5oz., containing about 3oz. gold. It is propo»ed, we understand, to take the outer ] Domain, Sydney, from the control of the curator of the Botanical Gardens (Mr. C. Moore), dedicate it as a park, and appoint trustees in the usual manner. Under the park regulations it will be impossible to hold meetiHgs there such as at present conducted, and thus many mouthy agitators will have to find a new spouting ground.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. THE STATE AND THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 19 February 1894
LETTERS TO THE EBiiOJi. THE STATE AND THE LAND. Sir,— The necessity for more efficient land legis lation is daily becoming more apparent, and there can be no doubt that, with a proper system of deal ing with the unalienated lands of the colony, much of the existing distress would speedily disappear. The principal object of land legislation should be to eecure the utilisation of the land by settlement or otherwise. That land settlement should be en jouragea is a pome on wtnen there can be no lispute j but what form should that encouragement issume ? There is a right way and a wrong way of Soing things. Judging from certain recent utter inces, there are some people who would persuade us that the Department of Lands should be worked upon similar lines to benevolent asylums and other 3haritable institutions, and thatsound business prin siples should be the last consideration. But the object of the State should be, not to offer the public lands at less than their market value, but by mak...
