VOTERS AND PAYMENT OF RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
VOTERS AND PAYMENT OF RATES. ? In settling the right to vote under tho Local Government Bill, Parliament should certainly avoid the perpetuation of the existing absurdity in the Municipalities' Act by which the voters' roll has to be overhauled at each election, to ascertain. if the voter has paid his rates. The roll Bhduld be compiled on -a given date in each year from the names of those who liavo paid their rates to date, but onoe on the roll the right; to Vote should be indefoji-i sible for the period for whicii the roll is iu force. A provision of this kind would liofc only obviate inueli injustice, hut save re turning officers, scrutineers, and poll clerks au endless amount of trouble.

THE SYRIAN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
THE SYRIAN QUESTION. Sib,— Your readers will doubtless remem ber the reeent correspondence in your columns' on the above subjeot, whioh arose out of your interview with one of the leading Syrian merchants iu Redfern, Mr. J. G. Malouf. Though a certain amount of 'iU-feoling wus occasioned among the Syrians themselves by that correspondence, yet it appears that ifc haB beeu productive of un looked-for rosults, Considerable interest in Syrian affairs lias been excitsd among the neighboring residents of Redfern and the English merchants who havo business rela tions with tho Syrians. The latter havo been led to see that they have nob acted, as a people, in the past in the most commendable way, for they have, for the most pai't, held aloof from Colonial affairs, conserving their own manners and customs, and refraining from sooial intercourse with thoir European neighbors and the rest of the community. The leading Syrian merchants, men of educa tion and law-abiding citizens, have all along...
ANOTHER FARE TICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
ANOTHER FARE TICKET. Passengers by tho railway tram3 will be delighted to know that their responsi bilities in the way of temporary bailees of Government pasteboard are to he added to by the issue of still another species of ticket, similar in design, but of a diffdreinfc color, to those in use on the ordinary trains. Hitherto the assortment of tickets which it was necessary for anyone requiring to move much about the city to carry about has been decidedly imperfect. All told there werenotquite half a dozen different descrip tions of tickets to be taken care of and carefully sorted out as occasion required, including railway, tram, ferry, and 'bus. It was felt thatsoniething was wanting to com plete the set, and now tha authorities have kindly come to the rescue by inventing a new kind, to be exclusively used on journeys to and from the railway, and with a surprising thoughtfulnoss then face value is to be only half that of the fare, thus necessitating the use of two for each trip, ...
THEY OPEN THEIR MOUTHS TOO WIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
THEY OPEN THEIR MOUTHS TOO WIDE. That is what is the matter 'with most property ovraers just now — particularly those who are subdividing blocks of land for sale. There is a large amount of inoney in small Bums available for invest ment in freehold land at' this moment, bufc there are few legitimate openings. Extor tionate prices are asked for most suburban land— North Shore line affords a particular example — and the people cannot invest except on terms -which are not likely to be profitable to them. High prions are asked for (suburban ealiotttonta, Gud to thoao who take terms a billing interest— the true weight of -which they often do not realise until too late — is demanded. We are speaking of the vendors of subdivision estates generally— that tlfere are excep tions -we Enow ; notably one who is cute enough to supply the people with what they require, and to know that to quit land in quantities at anything like old boom, rates is impossible, Most vendors, however, appear to be de...
KEEPING UP APPEARANCES IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
KEEPING UP APPEARANCES IN VICTORIA. The persons in 'Victoria -who are most troubled about the income tax are those ?who have no income to speak -of, but who, in order to keep up appearanees and their credit, make it appear that they have. To tell the truth would be disastrous, at least the sorely tried individuals think so, for although it is impressed upon aU inquin-v that 'the utmost secresy is qbserved, most people are of opinion that particulars as to income ar.e apt to leak out. In this condition of affairs we find tho Victorian swell in low water (and his name is legion) putting himself down for a far greater income than he ever hopes to see, and leaving the evil thereof to the day of tax collection. This 011 the confession of Victorians who have visited Sydney of late. They describe the Victorian outlook gene rally as ' deuced dismal,' and the. people from the Cabbage Garden may be expected to come over to N.S.W. in a body if any further taxation is sought to be imposed.
"PENNY-A-LINING" OUTDONE! [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
'PENNY-A-LINING' OUTDONE! A copy of a remarkable circular having reference to literary -wares has reached us through a correspondent. Ifc is headed, ' The Authors' Publishing Company,' and comes from Melbourne. The company propose to supply literature ready for the printing press — that is, already sot up and stereod — afc rates which will probably stagger every newspaper man who reads them. The ' patent inside ' of the country newspaper ia a fool to the latest project. However, the circular speaks for itself : — Dear Sir, — Some of the authors of Mel bourne havo determined to lay thoir works before the editors of the Press, direct, and without the intervention of middlemen. They propose to supply stereo matter of atl descrip tion at the very lowest possible cost, including serial, short stories, and miscellaneous sub jects, as well as leaders, sub-leaders, and correspondence of general interest. Articles will be supplied by oxperts on all matters of social aud industrial interest. ...
POLITICAL. THE REPORTED LOAN. The Treasurer Knows Nothing of It. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
POLITICAL. THE REPORTED LOAN. Tlie Treasurer Knows Nothing of It. Concerning the report by cable yesterday that New South Wales'would shortly place a loan qu tho London market, Mr. Reid who, being Treasurer, ought to know some thing about such matters, says he is quite ignoranc 01 any intention ot the land, on the part of the Government. He looks upon the cabled report in the light of the wish being father to the thought, and con siders that the story lias been inspired by the English financiers, who are only anxious that this colony should again enter the money maykat, . ,
THE NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895

Sinco he had for warded a despatch to the- Home olEce, as announced in the Assembly during the week, he had no further communication with regard to the matter. ' You cannot say whether Sir Henry Loch or any one else, is likely to be ap pointed ? ' ' No 1 I have no news whatever upon the subject.'

POLITICAL PELLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
POLITICAL PELLETS. A week's holiday at Easter for members if they are good. Somo would profor to go on talking ali 'tbe tiuib— this, howevor. .ia no allusion to Mr. Schey, Mr. Sleath,or Mr. Rose. Does tho Hon. John Davies know anything about the little band of claouers engaged to boom Parkes at the Looal Option meeting on Monday last? It is said that ono specially retained enthusiast was so intent on pausing out his instructions that ho called for ' cheers for Purkes' during the opening prayer, and completely shattered the gravity of tho plat form throng. Part of Mr. O'Sullivau'a Judges Salaries and Alio wanoes Bill is good, and part bad. That in regard to allowanoos is acceptable, but ifc is doubtful policy to deorease the salaries of Supreme Court Judges. At the same time there can be no justification for the Chief Justice taking two salaries . when Acting Governor. He should, have one or the other, not half of each. The Government will at the earliost oppor tunity bring in a Bill...

ON ROSEHILL RACECOURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
ON ROSEHILL RACECOURSE A detachment of lady collectors did duty at tho Rosehill Race meeting. Boxes in hand, they industriously canvassed for donations, allowing few of the large number of people in the grandstand reserve to escape without the opportunity of contributing something. In faot tho ' opportunity ' of so doing was rather pointedly brought under notioe by either an appealing' glance or an invitation in words, justifiable importunity considering the cause to be'served. A considerable sum was collected by the-Bix ladies engaged in the reserve.
ON THE FERRIES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
ON THE FERKIES. People travelling by tho North Shore, Bal main, Manly, and other ferries were ' g-vino through ' before reaching Syduey, were sub jected to an additional squeeze upon landing at the city wharves, and then had' to run the gauntlet on tho way to their plaoes of business. There was not the same eagerness to get on or off tho boats as usual. At one waterside suburb some intending passengers loitered on the slope leading to the jetty until tho boat was right alongside, when, of course, they had ' no time, you' know,' to pause lind btirifc out a coin for tho beseoohing' ladies who were waiting for victims. Then on l'oaving the boats Lb a inclination appeared to be to get in the middle of the throng as it streamed- out into the- street so that tho boxes and collectors might be passed unobserved. There was' an absence of the usual pushing and shoving to be first off. The smiling ladies, armed with cash catchers, were too much for' the cus tomari-ly eager and hurrying section...
GEORGE-STREET COLLECTORS SLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
GEORGE-STREET COLLECTORS SLOW, The ladies on George-street in the morning appeared to ho hardly so brisk and business like as last year ; but whether the collection in that thoroughfare suffered by comparison, with the previous one wq are not prepared to state. Some ladies, too, had a disposition to IiUlU.XUIlKl'Jy UUU VUlSUUlUHb W J^lJ during which* many a man fingering a sixpence intended to be handed over when' ' bailed tip ' sneaked by close to the shop fronts, the fatso of- each expressing conflicting emotions of shame and exultancy. There was one lady, however, on George-street in the morning who was not slow. This was the attractive col lector near the Bank of N.S.W., who deserves a first prize for smartness.

. AT THE THEATRES. At night large additions to tho fund were made at the playhouses. Mrs. Victor Cohou and seven other ladies worked hard in the vicinity of the Royal, and secured a good haul. At the Tivoli Miss Nolson, supported by threo other ladies, not only waylaid visitors to this house of vario.ty, but also invaded stalls and cirole. . .Thei Misses Piuos (2) and nursos from St. Vincent Hospital annexed many a shilling at tho entrance to Her Majesty's, whilst Mrs. Aaronson and a bevy of ladies carefully guarded' the approaches to the Lyceum, and alao be'tweeii the acts invaded the stage.
ON THE RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 7 April 1895
-- ON THE RAILWAY. ' In accordance with tbe aggressive tactics of the movement, the ladies literally followed up their victories all along the line by captur ing. and keeping possession of the various suburban railway stations. Afc these, with the connivance of the stafcionmasters, they pitohed their camps, and took tribute from all and sundry of Her Majesty s lieges whom business or pleasure com pelled to travel on the railway, so that the purchase money of th§ ticket was oply a trifling percentage on the actual cost of a journey to town. It may have been imagination, but the trains seemed to stop longer at the stations to give greater opportunities for carrying out their designs on travellers, who, at every station, had to run the gauntlet of several smiling and importunate collectors, aud cunning passengers who had seoured seats at the far side of the train thought themselves lucky. Even this position, however, was far from safe, as some of the more enterprising did not scruple t...
