RIVER SQUIBS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
RIVER SQUIBS. Mr. T. 0. Chaseling, of Wise- man's Ferry, has been sworn in as a Justice of the Peace. Several down the river residents attended the H.E.O. Baces held on Saturday at Clarendon. Host Kelly, of the Hawkesbury Hotel, Wiseman's Ferry, is still suffering with au eye trouble. Several residents from the Upper McDonald paid Windsor a visit on Friday and Saturday last, and after seeing the " sights " returned homeward on Saturday evening. Mr. T. Marx, the genial post master, who met with an accident some time ago through a fall is again on the mend, but is yet only able to get about with difficulty. We hear that a wedding, in which Mr. Thos. Jurd and a Miss ! Bailey will form the leading charac- ters, will take place within the next fortnight. We wish them " Quacks " are plentiful just now Wiseman's Ferry way. A corres- pondent wishes to know whether the " close" season is on now ? It is not ; so you can fire away with- out fear. Rumour has it that a popular clergyman and a yo...
PASSING NOTES. The Revenue. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
PASSING NOTES. The Revenue. TAKING all things into consider tiou, i^must be admitted that the revenuè returns for the past nine months of the year are highly .satisfactory. Up to the 31st March the net increase over last year's figures amounts to £429,630 -or nearly half a million. This is so much more than Mr. Lyne, or his predecessor, Mr. Carruth- ers, estimated, that it is strictlyj ?on the safe side to say that this' year's returns will be more satis-1 factory than any for some time past. We have not had a phen- omenally good seasons-in fact, throughout the greater part of the colony-which, in discussing revenue returns, has the advan- tage of emphasising the increas- ing prosperity shown by these figures ; for a good season all over the colony would mean as a . sequence a substantial increase in the revenue. It is when the season has not been propitious that a substantial increase in the revenue returnB indicates a solid and permanent improvement in the general welfare of the p...
ORIGINAL POETRY. In the Good Old Days Gone By. For the Hawkesbury Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
ORIGINAL POETRY ? lilllie Good OilDagsGoiiif Oy. j For tiie Hawkesbury Advocate. There are no points ia dreaming, Of the chances ope bas missed ; Of the TOWS made without meaning, Or the sweethearts on« has kissed ; Tet at times 1 can't help thinking, When I watch the western sky ; And the hot sun slowly sinking, Of the GOOD OLD DATO gone by. They bring back dead fruit bitter, Waken memories outgrown ; : And perchance it were much fitter, To let bygone LOVES alone ; Yet somehow my thoughts keep turn- ing, Half impatiently I sigh ; And my heart is filled with yearning, For the GOOD OLD DAVA gone by. They bring not joy-not |j| them. That haye passed-thöse quick wild f times;' Bat Ï sigh when I recall them, Prüm those other far off climes ; Yet my heart holds .TWO for ever,.

"Come along with me." [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
" Come along with me." A CITY journalist had the mis- fortune to be connected with a big printing house, which was quarantined owing to a case of plague breaking out in the com- posing room. He was promptly taken to the office of the Board of Health, overhauled, examined, tested and then let out on the Ticket of Leave system, which is worked very much on the same lines as the historic Botany Bay method, except that the holder thereof is not thuB rewarded for good conduct, and has to report himself to the Board of Health every day,, instead of to the police every month. On Sunday last when out, as he says himself, to report himself, a brawny con- stable called at his residence, and in very office tones wanted to know where he was and all about ? it. His wife said he would not be back till evening, so Constabje Murphy said he would call again ; Ät six o'clock he promptly appear- ed, and. tapping our friend on the shoulde%]ijúd " I want you, come along witlv^j&^^d explained1 th...
Imperial Appeal Court. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
Imperial Appeal Court. THE suggestion of Mr. Haldane Q.C;, a prominent member of the House of Commons, that an Im- perial Court of Appeal should be established, is clearly a red herring suggestion, drawn across the trail of the present dispute ovèr the Privy Council clauses in the Com- monwealth Bill. Mr. Haldane's proposal, boiled down to. Jialf a J dozen words, is that the Privy J Council should remain the final . Court of Appeal throughout the ] Empire, but be constituted in a ! slightly different way. ,He sug- 1 gests that Colonial Judges should j have the right to sit in the Privy j Council, and that they should be j made life peers. As it is, Colonial ; Judges do sit now in tfyfc . Privy i 530unciJ, but only ofi|^&^^j thalia, and bheïrôm Xkmm^va new method would probably give us an extra judge or two, whose opinions in Council would be of little use unless they happened to accord with the majority. Hence people who think the Privy Council faulty now, willJbjave a littl...
The Boers Hate tor Catholics. A LETTER FROM A NUN. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 13 April 1900
The Boers Hate tor Catholics. A LETTER FROM A NUN. Sister Mary Reginald, O.S.D. of the Newcastle Convent, Natal, in a letter to the English Catholic paper, the Tablet, gives an account of the experience of her order at New- castle after the outbreak of the war. The following extracts from the letter gives an indication of the bigotry of the Boer nature : '.. "Thank God our soldiers have such faith, and evidently the sight of the religious habit has a power- ful and softening influence on them ; and in this way, and by the aid of our constant prayers, we poor refugee nuns from our con- vent in Newcastle and Dundee may be instrumental in doing something for the glory of God during the dreadful time of suffering and sor- row, when our hoi? faith and all that appertains to it is trampled on and deserted by the Boer legions, who have deadly hatred of our re- ligion, and show themselves Sanatic in their destruction of all things Catholic. This is painfully evi- dent in our chapel at Newca...

HAWKESBURY RACE CLUB. A Successful Meeting. The autumn meeting of th Hawkesbury Bace Club on Sata day was one of the most successfi gatherings held on the Ciar endo course of recent years. The weathe vas fine and mild, and at th course the surroundings look» brighter than usual owing to a nei coat of paint on the buildings ani fences, while the general improve menta effected during the last yea: have brought the place quite with in the ideas of a modern racecourse The name, of the horse occupying it was written over the entrance ol each box. This proved a greal convenience to the general public, and prevented attendants and train- ers being bothered with inquiriei as to the name of a horse. Thc secreta? y, Mr. C. S.

Mr. P, Williams, replying to Mr. W. ' Redmond, said that each of the consult- ing surgeons sent to the seat of war would be paid at the rate of £500 a year, with passage to South Africa and back. The Cape " Argus prints a letter from a loyal Basuto chief, who says :-" Why do the English drive straight against the Boer fastnesses? A wild cat in a hole tears the bull-dog's nose. Watch the hole, and get in behind." The War Office authorities have invited the woollen manufacturers in Ireland to send in tenders for the supply of 300,000 flannel shirts. It is expected that the oraer being so extensive, the contract will be divided among several firms. Interesting letters have been received from Lady Bando] ph Churchill and members of the staff of the American Hospital Ship Maine from Capetown. Lady Randolph Ch...
