The Turanville Horse Sale. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 21 February 1894
The Turanville Horse Sale. Mr. ThamasCookachieveda somewhat unexpected failure yesterday. Banks, floods, and all round smashes have played sad havoc amongst the ranks of the speculators, and there are now more sellers than bnvers. Anvhow it waB a joyous day all right, for the clerk of the weather was up nice and early and polished up the face of old Sol until it shoiie like that big round ball of brass which Captain Mayne Eeid and Ouida ohat about and which always reminds ua with a shudder of our dear old friend uncle and the little pe cuniary ' differences which exist between us. There was a nice, brisk breeze, too, but ib didn't liven many of us ap, for the crowd which secured their tickets at Church-street waB small and circumspect. Certainly, there waa the brisk Member for Maitland, and th«e was Tom Cush, thinking about All Eight; but those two are bv no means big enough to make a crowd, and although the stalwart James Main and ourselveB helped them a bit there was no crushing, ...
PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. Tuesday, February 20. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 21 February 1894
PABLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Herald.) Tuesday, February 2O. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. PRIVILEGE. The dulneaB which usually characterises a sitting devoted to private mombers' business was broken through by a question of privilege, raised because of the unguarded utterances of Mr. Hindle, a mem ber for Newtown. Ifc appears that Mr. Hindle, who is a preacher as well as a politiciau, delivered a sermon on Sunday at Libhgow, and took advantage of the opportunity to denounce members of Parlia ment and their doings in the most unmeasured terms. Mr. Haynas, as soon aa the Assembly met, drew attention to these charges ; and, as the matter was treated as one of privilege, it was eventually decided that the clerk should read the report of Mr. Hindle'B Bermon. No one at first saemed quite clear as to what should be done, and, in the absence of Mr. Hindle, it was prorosed that this member should lie called upon to attend in his place and explain what he meant by saying su«h nasty things about ms...

MARIGOLD. CHAPTER XX. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 21 February 1894
MARIGOLD. CHAPTER XX. ' Can we not be friends, Hillie ?' inquires Har old, extending his hand. 'Never!' retorts Hillis, curtly, and passes on. But Harold is not eo easily rebuff 3d. ' You are going to the gaol whither you have sent Marigold. I shall accompany you. ' You see, I know what passed at Madame Torton's thia morning,' he continues, with a taunting smile, but does not add that it was through his paid spy, Backol, he gained his information. If Heaven's gates had suddenly opened before her, it could scarcely have been a more beauti ful sight to Marigold fcban when she looks np as her cell door opens and beholds Hillis standing there with out-stretched armB and love laden eyes. ' My love 1 my own 1 can you ever forgive me?' cries the young man, advancing into the cell. With a glad cry she bounds forward to meet him, but in the next instant she stops and her face grows cold and gray as death, for behind him she sees the face of Harold Manning. The latter sees the change in her, ...

BRISBANE. Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
BRISBANE. Thursday. A deputation principally composed of Labour members in the Assembly waited upon the Acting Postmaster- General to-day, to ask that it be made a condition of all ocean mail contracts subsidised by the Queensland Government that only European crews be employed. Mr. Byrne3 replied that he had very little hope of the suggestion being adopted unless the other colonies and Great Britain, who contributed a larger proportion of the subsidies, were willing to comply, but he promised to lay the wishes of the deputation before the Cabinet. The Government has offered a reward of JE1000, of which ;the British India Company has contributed .£250, for information leading to a conviction in connection with the recent supposed acts of incen diarism on the British India Co.'s steamers. The crew of the Kanahooka arrived by the Wodonga from the North to-day and were met at the wharf by a, large crowd of friends.

LATEST SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. [Fbom ibhe Press Telegraph Association.] SYDNEY. Thursdav afternoon. The trial of John O'Neill and Adam Mutch, charged with complicity in causing the recent fire at the Tarragon Hotel, was continued at tha Central Criminal Court this morning. His Honor said since yesterday he had conbulted with his brother judges relative to the competency of counsel for the defence to put certain questions to O'Neill, who had tendered himself n.a n wifinos.q. &nri tin in timated it would not be competent for Mr. Wise to cross-examine O'Neill. The latter then entered the witness-box, and continued his evidence from yesterday. He said what he wished to say waa that he never set fire to the Tarragon Hotel. Mutch, who was then sworn, denied that he knew anything about the burning of the hotel ; he had a bill of sale over the premises as licensee, and was induced to insure the premises in November last because a fire had occurred at a bhop twe doors off. Since the insur...
MR. DAVIS ON PUNCTUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
MR. DAVIS ON PUNCTUALITY. Sir, — With great reluctance I ogam trespass oh your valuable space. I have been anxiously waiting since the 10th for a reply from the Rev. Mr. DaviB, giving a satisfactory explanation of a few remarks which I alluded to in my letter of the date men tioned, and as he haB failed to reply it is an evident fact that he can give no explanation of his vague and meaningless remarks. Well, Sir, I myself think that the remarks which the rev. gentleman made use of were altogether uncalled for, and out of place, especially more bo when he is living amongst them. Then, again, he goes on to say the churches and railways teach punctuality, and why should not that rule apply to public meetings Well, I suppose the rev. gentleman is aware that churches have set times, and so have public meet ings ; but it is the ministers who open service and are duty bound to be there to time, and if they fail to keep the;r services up to time, well they would lose the confidence of their...
PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. Wednesday, February 21. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. VALIDITY OF THE ELECTORAL ACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Herald.) Wednesday, February 21. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. VALIDITY OP THE ELECTOEAI, ACTS. The Legislative Council sat until 20 minutes past G o'clock. Mr. Jacob was informed that no spocial opinion had been given by the Attorney-General as to whether the Electoral Acts of 1880 and 1883, or either of them, required to be validated by the Imperial Parliament. This answer did not satisfy Mr. Jacob, and that hon. gentleman moved the adjournment of the House to call attention to what he described as the discourteous leply of Dr. BlacLaurin. However, Mr. Jacob got no further information, and the matter was allowed to drop. PROGRESS OP BILLS. The M'Qucde Estate Bill was read the third time and ordered to be sent to the Legislative Assembly for its concurrence. The debate on the second reading of the Stamp Duties Acts further Amendment Bill was couf.;tiued and concluded, and the bill was committed pro forma. Mr. Simpson brought in a bill to render penal the inci...
Two Irish Misers. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
Two Irish Misers; An old miser lived in Connnught, and seemed to be an utterly forlorn creature, without ' chick or child' belonging to him. It was rather fortunate for the non-existent chick that Buchwas its state, for if it had had an existence it would surely have lacked the means to support it. This old miser was so mean that he denied himself bread, and only kept his miserable Jife in its tenement by gifts of food from charitable neighbours. But he was known to have plenty of money hidden away in his wretched shanty, and his neighbours at last got tired of giving to one so entirely unworthy. For some days no one went near the old man, and the cabin stood desolate. No one was seen to go in or out, and at last the constable determined to take the obstinate old creature to gaol. The door was broken open and the old miser waB found dead. In his wretchedly starved condition, and frantic at the thought of leaving his loved money behind him, lie had died trying to swallow some of his ...
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. LAND, LAND, THE PEOPLE'S INHERITANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. LAND, LAND, THE PEOPLE'S INHERITANCE. Sib, — On Mr. Gormley's motion of censure on the administration of the Land Act by the present Minister, on February 7, the most sensible remark I observed during the whole of the debate was — ' That the whole of out Land Acts, both present and previous, ought to be burned by the public hangman.' With this opinion, I quite concur, as no doubt they have helped in a marked degree to bring the country to its present state of distress and destitution. Sir John Robertson's 1861 Act was looked upon as a great blessing when it first became law, and no doubt it has been the means of settling many on the land, and giving thousands of industrious colonists good homes j but the benefits to the comparative few are largely counterbalanced by .the injustice to the many living and now in beggary, and also to future generations. We now find no means could have been devised, more potent than this Act and its many amendments, to assist the ...
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. OPENING BUSINESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. OPENING BUSINESS. The Assembly recently has shown an extra ordinary eagerness to defend its character against the various charges of drunkenness and corrup tion which have been hurled at it, and yesterday members assembled in large numbers to deal with one of their own body, Mr. Hindle. The Premier voiced the indignation of the House by moving that in the opinion of the Assembly the state ments made by Mr. Hindle at Lithgovr were a gross libel upon the House. Before this jould be done, however, the usual routine work bad to be transacted, and amid the formal business bhe Treasurer took the first steps towards intro incing a Temporary Supply Bill, though objec bion was taken to a measure to indemnify the Treasury for making certain unauthorised payments sut of the public accounts. Mr. Crick was able to pass the third readings of the Attorneys' Ad mission Bill and the Sydney Corporation Act Amendment Bill, two measures which have had a remarkably smooth passage t...

The Prince of Wales' recent visit to the Duke aud Duchesa of Rutland recalls a rather good story which was some years ago casually told bv a writer in one of the reviews.
