The Government Programme. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894
The Government Programme. 'A meeting of the Cabinet was held yesterday, when Ministers discussed the business before Par liament. It was resolved (says the Herald) that the Estimates be pushed on with the least possible delay. A determined effort will therefore be made ' to finish them next week. It was felt that the debate of the items had already occupied a long time, and that if any other legislation is to De done this session the debate on this subject must be brought to a speedy conclusion. A number of ?Government and private bills remain to be dealt ?with. Mr. Lyne is desirous of proceeding with the. Betterment Bill and one or two other measures. Mr. Copeland also deBires to go on with a measure providing for amendments in the village settlements scheme. It is likely, however, that some of the bills which have been ?foreshadowed will be dropped, as there appears to be an increasing desire amongst Ministers to bring the session to a close. It is recognised by the ?Government th...

PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894
PATERSON. Mr. Charles J. Duffy, of Ourimbah, addressed the electors of Paterson from the balcony of the Commercial Hotel, last night, as a coming candi date for Durham. Mr. F. Connors occupied the chair. There was a good hearing, and Mr. Duffy made a very lengthy speech, commencing at 8.30 and continuing until nearly 11.30. He adopis the policy of Protection ; is a strong advocate of fede ration of the colonies ; opposes the land tax ; thinks a National Bank would be advantageous; firmly believes in an elective Upper House ; is a supporter of Local Government. Speaking in the interests of Protection, he emphatically declared that the importers pay the duties and not the consumers. At the conclusion of his voluminous address, a vote of thanks was called for by Mr. J. Tucker,, and given by acclamation. The grape crop is almost a total failure through out this district. It promised so well, the vines being laden with full bunches, but the black spot, a vine disease difficult to cope wi...
BRANXTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894
BRANXTON. Measles.— This epidemic has not yet disappeared from our midst. Scarcely a family in Branxton has escaped, and consequently the attendance at our local schools have been considerably affected thereby. Happily no fatal cases have to be recorded, though several at one stage assumed a Berious aspect. Tennis Match. — A tennis match between representatives of West Maitland Technical School and local players is to take place here to-morrow (Saturday) if weather permits. The match is looked forward to with much interest, though it is almost a foregone conclusion that the superior play of our visitors will secure for them an easy victory. Cheap Excursions.— With reference to the cheap weekly excuraions to Newcastle from Singleton, Branxton, and Greta, a concession obtained from the Railway Commissioners by Mr. A. J. Gould in the interests of his constituents, it is feared the privilege will not be largely availed of as Thursday is not a convenient day for the majority of people. I...

DISTRICT NEWS. RAYMOND TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894
DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondents.] RAYMOND TERRACE. On Saturday last a celebration was held at Euwylong, in connection with the Public school at that place. Euwylong is the name recently given to a district nine miles from Raymond Terrace, and previously known as The Nine-mile. The residents are all selectors, and the total population comprises some 370 souls. A good number 01 those who have taken up land are miners who work at Stockton, and utilise what they can spare of their earnings in improving their holdings. The Public school, which was erected three years ago, is the only evidence of these worthy pioneers obtaining any recognition from the Government of the country. 'When the school was built it was just large enough, and no more, to accommodate the number of children then in attendance. Under the able management of the present teacher, Miss Connolly, the average attendance has been doubled, and the school building is, therefore, now only one half the required size. T...
