LAWN TENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
lawn tehnis. The final round for the captaincy of the Sydney Club Was played off yesterday afternoon, betweeu Dewhuwt and Crossman. Tho weather was un usually boisterous and gusty, but iu spite of this a very fine exhibition of the ;ame was given, esDeciallv bv the winner. The first set went to Dewhurst — 6-S — ho holding the lead all through, but towards the close Crossinrm had commenced to assert himself, and continuing into the next set it was called 4-2 in his favor, but after this his play weut off greatly, and Deerliurst won that set — 6-4 — and the next— 6-2. The result was therefore, Dewhurst beat Crossman — 6-3, 6-4, 6-2. In the last set Crossman seemed to have lost heart, nnd seemed to be more bothered by the wind thun his opponent. During the match, however, he saved some rests in a surprising manner. Dewhurst's splendid length, however, and accurate volleying was too mueh for him. This match is tho first out of three that Dewhurst has won against Crossman, these two inva...

THE CYCLING CARNIVAL. N.S.W. LEAG0E SPORTS. ?» A Grand Opening. Megson the Champion — Middletou Shows Great Form— N aw South , Wales Victorious. Given fine weather everybody who was any body prophesied that the cycling carnival, under the auspices of the New South Wales League of Wheelmen, would be a tremendous euooess, and as far as the first day is concerned what everybody saiu has proved true. The weather wa3 fine, barring a Btrong wind with a southerly tendency, which made it uncomfortable for the riders, and also raised olouds of dust in the streets, which, aa ushal, were not watered when it was needed most. Ned Gregory, who can always be depended upon, prepared a first class track — in fact there has never been a better one at tbe Association Ground. The public responded very well to the grand pro gramme of sport put before them. The Btand and enclosure were very well tilled, the mem bers' stand and ladies' reserve ditto, and the shilling portion of tho ground was so patronise...
ENGLAND v S. AUSTRALIA. England four Wickets Down for 451 Runs. Ward, Brown, and Ford Each Compile Three Figures. ADELAIDE, Saturday Night. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
ENGLAND y S. AUSTRALIA. England four Wickets Down for 451 Runs. Ward, Brown, and Ford Each Compile Three Figures. (by wire— from our own correspondent.) Adelaide, Saturday Night. Tho Englishmen no doubt were nob very keen in the match to-day. A few minutes were allowed to elapse beforo the batsmen appoared at the wickets. The weather was beautifully fine, and the attendance, consider ing that the cream of cricket for this season has boen skimmed, was wonderfully good. About 12,000 were present. When play was resumed Brown was not out 15, Ward 31, aud Giffen and Jones took up the attack. For a long time the scoring was very slow, six overs produciug as many runs, aud both Giffen and Jonos keeping a splendid length, while there was some brilliant fielding shown, Lyons, Darling, and Scrymgour beiug in oviduuoe. The first 25 minutes produced 8 runs. Brown after half-an-hour's cricket opened out. Jones became oxpensivc, Brown treating him rather severely with 135 up. Jarvis took Jones' p...
POLITICAL. MR. AFFLECK AND THE SPEAKER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
POLITICAL. MB. AFFLECK AND TUE SPEAKER. Mr. 'Affleck had undoubtedly the pull of the Speaker . in .differing from his ruling. The Speaker hold that the matter sought to be ventilated by Mr. Affleck could not ba gone into because it had boen dealt with in a .previous Parliament. Mr. Affleck took' exception to this ruling, and the Speaker wriggled out. He could hardly justify his position. If a matter was not to be dealt with because it had been before a previous Parliament we would miss a good many reforms. That a matter cannot be dealb with twice in the same session is reasonable enough, and that is perhaps what the Speaker was thinking about. Mr. Affleck may be considered to have scored.
POLITICAL PELLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
POLITICAL PELLETS. Mr. Sohey said that the average length of the sittings this session had exceeded that of any previous session. The Premier said that if they oould ourtail tbe tongues the sittings would be curtailed. (Hear, hear). The Premier hopes to olose this session of Parliament in August (bar aeoidants) and resume in February, 1896. It is very evident that politioal influenoe has a good deal to do with tne appointment of Crown Prosecutors. Sir George Dibbs states that he is thankful that the Conciliation and Arbitration Bill — making the submission of disputes to a special tribunal compulsory — will be blocked in the Council. Mr. Beid points out that Sir George actually advocated the main principles of the Bill when in office in February, 1894. ' If you compel one party to a dispute to meet the other side, how can you say that iB conciliation?' — Mr. See. Mr. M'Gowen urges that the Government j should enforce the awards of the proposed Arbitration Commission, but admits that...
THE STRIKE AT HUDSON BROS, Attitude of the Men Yesterday. PARRAMATTA, Saturday Night [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
THE STRIKE AT HUDSON BROS. Attitude of the Men Yesterday. ('Sunday Times' Wire.) Parramatta, Saturday Night This morning a meeting of the 'men on strike at Hudson's was hold, and a request made for all hands to turn up at the works on Monday morning with a view to using their moral suasion to restrain applicants from accepting employment.

THE SERVICE. COLONIAL TREASURER'S DEPARTMENT, [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
[?] COLONIAL TREASURER'S DEPARTMENT, (By the 'Sunday Times' Special Commissioner.) One of the best features in the present Colonial Treasurer's Estimates of revenue and expenditure i3 the reduction of the Treasurer's advance account for contingen cies from .£200,000 to .£50,000 per year. IhiBisa much-needed reform, for past ex perience proves that aH long as tho larger amount is available the 'contingencies' are certain to arise to swallow it up. SOME VBEY PECULIAR TEANSACTIONS crop up occasionally under the head of ' con tingencies.' For instance, when the Medioal Congress met some time ago in Sydney the Government of the day, with iavish generosity, put a snm of ^JaOO on the Estimates as a State contribution towards the festivities indulged in by the assembled medicos. Why any Government should take upon themselves to bestow the taxpayers' money in any such direction is not 60 clear; but the matter didn't end oven there, for at a gorgeous banquet to which the then Premier was- inv...
THE FISHING-BOAT FATALITY The Probable Cause of the Capsize. James Pemment's Body Found Yesterday. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 31 March 1895
THE FISHING-BOAT FATALITY The Probable Cause of the Capsize. James Peiument's Body Found Yesterday. IN connection with the boating accident off Henry's Head, Botany Bay, on Thursday night, by whioh four out of six of a fishing crew were drowned, the statements heretofore published are conflicting. The survivors of the party state that they had been out since tho forenoon of Thursday, and were returning, m tile calm, near midnight, with a good haul of fish, when they were suddenly capsized by a sea, caused by the wash of tho steamer Resolute, which had just come out of Botany Bay and ' made a con siderable sea where tho two currenfs met. The survivors aver that tho Resoiuto steeted a peculiar course — seemed to chase the small boat, although it dodged — and would have ruu them down had the skipper not jibed a third time. That is one side of the story. Tho folk on the stoamer, however, deny that they were close to the fishing-boat, which had plenty of room, and though someone was hear...
