SNOWBALL. CHAPTER III. IN WHICH WE GO TO THE CIRCUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894

SNOWBALL. CHAPTER III. IN WHICH WE GO TO THE CIRCUS. iuua tne evening of another day; crisp, clear, 'Cool. The town-hall has tolled seven, and all the town,- in its Sunday best, is trooping gaily to the great-common on the outskirts, where the huge circus tent is erected, where flags fly, and drums lieat, and brass instruments blare, and great doings will be dene to-night. A great rope stretches from the centre of the common to the top of the tent, quite a giddy height, and the celebrated tight-rope dancer, Mile Mimi, is to walk ? up this before the .performance, giving a-.gratis taste of her qualities to an admiring world. Other outward and visible signo of the inward and to-be-paid-for graces going on within, are there as well. Every dead wall, every fence all over the town, is placarded with huge posters, announcing, in lofty letters of gorgeous colours, the wonderful doings to be beheld for the small sum of fifty cents, children half price, clergyman free ! 'Pictures of all the ...

Divorce Made Easy. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894

Divorce Made Easy. Realising that competition is the soul of business, the new territory of Oklahoma, in the United States, is making a strong bid for what is called in that country the divorce trade. The New York Times publishes quotations from a circular sent out irom tne new town oi .ferry by an enterprising at torney, who says : — ' Since the Legislature of the state of South Dakota changed the law last winter of that state, lengthening the residence required before bringing suit for divorce from three to six months, Oklahoma Territory has been attracting attention as a divorce centre. For the information of the general public and tbe profession in other States, I have concluded to issue this circular letter containing briefly the important features of the divorce law of this territory. The statutes of Oklahoma Territory require 90 days' previous resi dence before commencement of action, as in South Dakota before the change of law. Divorces in this territory may be granted for a...

ECHOED OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894

ECHOES OtfSPOKT. There will be a GaslightfHandicap next Saturday, evening. ' ' ' ' A ' ) ! l' ? ' ' '?' It ia currently reported that Chestennan, & pro mising colt by Cheaterraan in Mr.'T. Payten's stable, recently slipped his shoulder. Something must be radically wrong with that great colt Loyalty, although none of the Eandwick touts have awakened to the fact, for Dan O'Brien has taken the son of St. George and Fair Nell out of all his engagements. It seems that other handicappers than Mr. Dakin fail to please some horseowners, for I learn that Mr. George Stead has complained very piteously over the treatment accorded to hia racers by the Wellington (New Zealand) weight adjuators. By J the way the V.K.C. committee is not placed in a j very enviable position when «sked to adjudicate over the dispute between Messrs. 'J. B.

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894

LQCAL NEWS. The Electoral Law and the Residential Qualification. — Some weeks ago a discussion wag started, respecting the effect of the Act for 1893 disfranchising electors who after the revision of the rolls shall have removed from their districts. According to the Chief Electoral officer, an elector is not disqualified so long aB he remains in the same electoral division. A returning officer may ask an elector before he votes whether he still pos sesses the qualification in respect of which the tight was issued. The qualification as stated in the right is in respect of ' manhood suffrage' and 'residence' in the division named. The act, it seems, provides that an elector who changes hia place of residence from the district for which he is enrolled to some other district, and shall desire to obtain an elecctor's right for the last mentioned district, shall apply to the registar of such district, and upon delivering up the elector's right held by him to such registrar and answering ...

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894

LETTEB, TO THE EDITOR. Sir, — As the question o£ questions before the country is the unemployed, there is one source o£ employment that is neglejted and abused. The Department ought either to take it over or put; it under proper control. Our district roads are badly managed, and often by incapable men. Our trustees are all without exception interested directly or indirectly : mostly business men, who keep the work for their friends. In that case, the public do not get more than half what tbey ought for their money. If the road inspectors cannot take them into their care, let the Councils have them ; as ifc is, they are only political sops. Does anyone think for a moment that tho^e men do the work for nothing ? If neither of those bodies can take them over, let some practical man be employed in a district, instead of it being confined to a few people in and around our towns, who receive the work because they hare got into the books of the local business men. This is a Bpeciea of log-...

DEGRADING THE LEGISLATIVE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894

DEGBADIJTG THE LEGISLATIVE OFFICE. Constituents are never superior to the temptation of employing their parliamentary representatives as agents. It would be difficult to say what services might not be expected of members, were they willing to lender the service people would ask of them. All of ua remember bow a tew years ago a considerable section of the Assembly followed the business of land agent — some giving the address ' Parliament House.' These were for the most part remunerated — there was a fee charged but some did the work for love and in a fervour of reforming zeal, and these had the more extensive connection. How members -are pestered by applicants for offices in the State departments is notorious. And, in fact, unless members themselves resisted from physical inability and absolute want of time, it ia pretty clear that no limit would be placed by persons in their electorates upon demands for service not falling at all properly within the functions of a legislator. If mem...

Veterans' Cricket Match. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 February 1894

Veterans' Cricket Match. A veterans' cricket match was played on the Albion Ground yesterday between sides . captained respectively - by Messrs. John Roarke and Jas. H. Brunker, in the presence of a fairly large gathering: of spectators. A small admission fee was charged to the ground, the proceeds of which will be devoted to the Albion Cricket Club's funds. When we reached the ground the first innings had just been completed, and Mr. Geo. Kedwell, photographer, was busily engaged taking a photo of the players grouped. The game, we believe, was not devoid of fun, incident, and excitement, and the players, many of whom had donned the orthodox erickefcing costume, were frequently applauded by their friends. For Mr. Rourke's side, Old Sam Cosstick and W. Seobie did all the exe cution in the bowling, while George Moore showed by his score of 13 that his hand had not yet lost its cunning with the bat. He was the only player fortunate enough to make double figures, W. W. Birkmyre, 9, bein...

[?] [From our Correspondents.] NEWCASTLE. Monday. THE CO-OPERATIVE COLLIERY. It would appear that no success has attended the visit of the deputatiou from the Co-operative Miners Lodge to Mr. N. Laidley in Sydney, with the hope of certain proposals being accepted and work being resumed at the mine. The deputation returned on Saturday, but declined to give any particulars until they have laid their report of the interview before the Lodge this evening. It may be presumed, however, from what has been gathered, that a resumption of work is still in the distant future. POLLARD'S LILirUTIAN OPERA CO.

A night watchman at Holdsworth, McPherson and Co.'s warehonse while going his rounds this morning made a ghastly discovery. In walking along one of the large cellars in course of erection he came across the bruised and blood stained dead body of a woman huddled close to the wall, beneath an open doorway, in sueh a position as to suggest that it had either fallen or been pushed through an aperture. The police were communicated with, and upon searching the body found a half emptied rum bottle in one of the pockets. The woman was about 50 years of age, poorly clad, and is so far unidenti fied. At first foul play was suspected, but the police after examination have formed the theory that the woman was endeavouring to get accom modation in the new building on Saturday night, and owing to the darkness stepped into a space, falling...
