DISTRICT NEWS. GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894

DISTRICT HEWS. [From our Correspondents.] GRETA. Police Court. — At this Court on Wednesday, before Messrs. Walker and Jones J's.P., a couple of offenders — a lady and gentleman on this occasion — were charged by Constable John Snushall with having made use of obscene language in a public place on recent dates. They both pleaded guilty, the lady alleging that she had been provoked into using the words, and the bench taking this and the fact that it was her first appearance before the court into consideration, administered a gentle reproof and fined her 2s 6d, with 4s 4d C03ts of court, or eieht hours' in the lockup. The lady at once laid down the money and retired, telling tho constable that ' You can give Tom the change another time.' We suppose the change will be handed to 'Tom' all right. In the case of the male defendant a similar penalty whs imposed ; but, alas ! in this case the money was not forthcoming, and our worthy North British compatriot went round for 8 hours. This was...

The Conversazione at the Town Hall. The promoters of the Grand Conversazione, Musical Festival, and Sale of Work in aid of the funds of the Wesleyan Church, West Maitland, now running in the Town Hall, must have been highly pleased with the patronage bestowed upon it last evening. The room was thronged the whole night, and the various stalls and side shows did a good business. All the goods are disposed of by genuine sale ; no raffles, lotteries, art unions, &e , ace aiiuwtju ; uuc notwLcustanaiag tnat, a large number of articles were disposed of, and by that means, the entrance fees, anl amounts from side shows, the receiptB for Wednesday amounted to the respectable sum of jE55.

LATE GENERAL STEWS. A treacherous attack was made by a swagman on Mr. Nuske, poatmaater at Hildesheim, near Mannum (S.A.) on Tuesday. The swagman asked Nuske for a lift, and as they were driving along he gave the latter a heavy blow on the head, knocking him to the ground between the horses. The ruffian stole NuBke'a watch and decamped. it will be remembered that some four weeks ago the jockey Longford met with an accident at Randwick while riding in a race, and that his leg was badly smashed He was removed to St. Vincent's Hospital, and when .admitted by the medical superintendent, Dr. Doolan, the latter expressed the opinion that the leg wonld have to be amputated. Every means, however, were adopted to render an operation unnecessary, but during a few days since mortification began to show itself, and on Tuesday a consultation was held by ' the surgical staff of the hospital, and it was decided that the limb would have to be amputated.

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 February 1894

ECHOES OP SPOKT. It is probable that Jack Gainsford will steer Whakawatea in the Newmarket Handicap. Salopian, who has received consistent support for the Newmarket Handicap this week, is trained at Aspendale by his owner, Mr. J. R. Crooke, who some years ago was very successful with Saladin and other horses, and more recently with Asnen, Mer rimu, Claptrap, etc. He trained Aspen for both the Newmarket Handicaps that she won. Salopian who has run two or three times in the colours of Mr. J. Whittinghain, is a big chestnut gelding, standing fully 17 hands high, and is a son of Mer rimu, whom he very much resembles. He haB only been in hand a few weeks. It was only recently that b'ackers got a very nasty slap in the face at Canterbury Park over Avonmore and Duke of York not starting for a race for which their riders had weighed out, and there haB been much discussion ever since as to the necessity for some important alterations in the rules of betting. If punters fared badly then they ...

LOCAL NEWS. The Cost op ' Hansard.'— A statement having been made lately in the Assembly that Parliamen tary Debates cost £16,000 a year, the principal shorthand writer has addressed Mr. Speaker a letter in which he cites a number of figures sup plied by the Government Printer. Since 1884 the average annual cost of printing and binding the mhatxs has been i!1059, and of shorthand writing .£2500, making altogether .£0559.
