LANDLORD AND TENANT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

LANDLORD AND TENANT. The arbitrary character of the law of dis traint in force in New South Wales has been frequently animadverted upon by the Sunday Times, and we are constantly hear ing of the most heartrending cases in which persons in debt to their landlords aro deprived of every stick of furniture in order to pay the amount due for rent. Only last week we were informed of a case iu which, for a sum of thirty shillings, a tenant had the whole of his belongings sold off at nominal prices to meet the landlord's claim, leaving himself aud his family with out so much as a bed to lie upon. Such barbarity as this under cover of the law is a. disgrace to any civilised, not to say Christian community, and legislation on the subject is urgently required. In Vic toria an Act has, recently been passed of which the essential clause is as follows : — ' From and after the passing of this Act the following goods and chattels of a tenant or his family shall (subject to the proviso hereinafter c...

THE WOMEN AND CHARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

THE WOMEN AND CHARITY. It has been said again that the women promenaders on Saturday week did not respond freely to the requests of the hos pital collectors, and once more we have to say that the collectors had no right to ex nect that thev would. As a matter of fact. they should not be asked. If there are any in the streets who can afford to give they will, no doubt, do so happily; but to pester them to contribute is unjust. It is unfair to ask the married women, because their husbands are being relieved of quite as much as the family can afford — oc- j casionally more, perhaps ; and of the single women, how many in these daays have separate purses containing anything more than buttons and tickets ? ' Those in business have,' someone will reply. We know it; and we also know that to take anything trom their slender purses is little less than a crime. The women who work in this city do not get such a satisfactory return for their labor that they can afford to give to charities. Chari...

A NOTABLE PROJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

A NOTABLE PROJECT. Eveky effort to develop new or unutilised ! sources of wealth and create fresh avenues of employment is a distinct gain to the entire community, and from this point of view the starting of a completely equipped whaling craft from this port should be a subject of general congratulation, more especially when it is pretty well known that the field that it is destined to exploit is practically illimitable, and the harvest which it seeks virtually inexhaustible. The fitting out of the brig Phyllis by Mr. Lane with modern and effective appliances for the profitable pursuit of the whaling in dustry is therefore a noteworthy venture, deserving more ..than passing notice. These appliances include a blubber room, tightly floored, so as to allow the cutting-in process to proceed in all weathers, about seventy 400-gallon tanks, which are at the outset of the voyage to be filled with water. When oil is got it will be stored in these tanks by means of a hose, the water being pr...

THE CIVIL SERVICE REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

THE CIVIL SERVICE REPORT. Now that the Civil Service Commission has concluded its labors, and it is known that a quarter of a million can be saved without impairing the efficiency of the Service, tho country will look anxiously for the next step towards realising that result. If the recommendations of the Commission, like those of its predecessors, are to be simply pigeon-holed, and ulti mately forgotten, it might as well, or even far better, never have been appointed. Assuming that the conclusions arrived at aro well founded, it will be the duty of the Government to give effect to them aB far as possible without any unnecessary delay. Summarised they are : — 1. The repeal of the Civil Service Act of 18S4, and tho passing of a new Act to establish an independent Board of Control, the com missioners to take entire control of tho Ser vice. 2. Tho immediate cessation of new appoint ments nnd of increases to salaries of tho existing' staff. ? 3. The appointment of a committee of per man...

WHAT WE EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

WHAT WE EAT. It being part of the acknowledged duty of the Government to protect the health of the community by supervising the quality of its food, the question naturally occurs why the inspection should be confined to so comparatively few articles of consump tion. We have inspectors of abattoirs and of dairies, but our daily bread is one of those things that still go unchallenged, although there is no reason to sup pose it to be more immaculate than either our meat or our milk. In point of fact, judging from the wide disparity of price that occasionally exists, some method of making a profit exists that were it generally known would hardly commend itself to our sanitary authorities. Then again there are the restaurant kitchens on which so many of our city sojourners are uex-endent for their principal meals, .and in some cases all of them. Who can be answerable for the mysteries pertaining to their deep and secret recesses ? What are the component parts of the succulent sausage, or...

GRAVEYARD LOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

GRAVEYARD LOTS. It would appear as if there was scarcely any limit to the diminutive size into which some suburban estates aro subdivided, and so long as people can be found to purchase them, it is to be presumed that ' graveyard lots ' will continue to be offered for sale. The Kogarah Council are rendering good service in calling attention to this practice by demanding an Act to prevent land being cut up into such portions as this, pre sumably for building purposes, it being stated that some subdivisions have lately taken place averaging 18 lots to the acre. It is unnecessary to ask how proper provision for dwellings with adequate sanitary arrangements, drainage, light, or ventilation can possibly be made on a number of contiguous lota such as this, and nothing but greed and selfishness could prompt or permit it. It is bad enough to have slums and rookeries in densely populated city quarters, but to establish such in open country, where land is comparatively cheap, is not only a wr...

A DISREGARDED PERIL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

A DISREGARDED PERIL. An English medical authority has just called attention to a fact which, though not new, has only been recognised hereto- j fore in a general way, and lias, not had sufficient importance attached to it. He I points out that a great deal of disease may be conveyed by house insects, and to speak plainly, particularly by the mahogany backed multitude which infest many old or ill-kept buildings. Fevers : and worse j diseases may, it is averred, bo conveyed by these inseots, There are parts o£ Sydney 1 fairly alive with vermin — particularly the tenements of the undesirable foreign section ; but most people are indifferent to the circumstance. So long as they are not brought into close contact with these quarters they do not trouble about the filth And vice obtaining there. But they lose sight of the fact that the residents of these places mix with the population at large — ride on 'buses and in trams, trains and ferry boats, and presumably convey specimens of their v...

AT THE SHOW ON EASTER MONDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

AT THE SHOW ON EASTER MONDAY. The most attractive day ot all at tue Agri Cultural Show should be to-morrow. The finals of some of the hunting competitions for both ladies and gentlemen will begin in the forenoon, and as tho intorest in these is growing very keeu, some exceptionally fine sport is sure to be witnessed. The final for Gentlemen Hunters will commence at 10 o'clock, and that for ladies over hurdles at 2 o'clock. The high jump will doubtless provide no ond of amusement, and a few sen sations for the onlookers. Taken as a whole, i to-morrow's programme of sport, added to the many splendid attractions on all side3, should ensure a very big attendance, II. Gladden, West Shefiord, P.Q., writes : — ' For a number of years I have been afflicted with rheumatism. Two years ago I was at tacked very severely.

Before the CURTAIN LYCEUM—"AN IDEAL HUSBAND." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

I ' / [?] LYCEUM— 'AN IDEAL HUSBAND.' Mr. Bouoicault last evening commenoed the last six nights of his present season at the Lyceum by presenting, for the first time in Australia, a new and original play of modern life, entitled 'An Ideal Husband.' Origi nally produced at the Haymarket Theatre no longer ago than on January o last, it achieved a most marked success in London, and by latest exchanges was running to the accompaniment of extensive patronage. The play is without question a brilliantly written one. Of course a close examination would end in objections to parts of the story on the score of improbability, and it will be said the husband is far 'from an ideal one — the title is on the face of it a pieco of sarcasm — but Buch really counts for little or nothing. The tale is powerfully told, and the dialogue sparkles with wittioisms as only to be expeoted from an author who is rightly described as a pedlar in epigrams and paradoxes. The story, briefly outlined; is as fol lows ...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. AN IDIOTIC LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

NOTES AND COMMENTS. AN IDIOTIC LAW. Some time since, during one of those peculiar but abortive spasms of superior virtue which occasionally affect our Legis lature, it passed an ordinance giving the Postmaster-General the power to refuse to deliver correspondence which was assumed to be connocted with tho promotion of gambling. This power has been since acted upon by two Ministers who have filled the office, with the effect that a number of persons have been seriously incon venienced in their business transactions, and in regard to their social privileges, although no one has been able to discover that the vico of gambling has been affected to the value of a single penny. One other effect has, however, been pro duced by this eccentric law which is to diminish the postal revenue by several thousands of pounds annually, which amount has gone into the coffers of neighboring colonies who first agreed to join in the movement, but afterwards seeing a brilliant opportunity of making money ...

THE JUDGE, THE JURY, AND THE PRISONER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895

THE JUDGE, THE JURY, AUD TIE PBI80NER. In this journal the first note of public dissent from the verdict of the jury in the Dean poisoning case was voiced. The hour at whioh the decision was arrived at yesternight week made it impossible to comment at length, upon it in last issue, but we felt impelled — despite the strong remarks of his Honor, which were before us — to make the statement that it came as a surprise, inasmuch as the evidence did not appear strong enough to sup port the verdict. There is every reason to believe that with that opinion the bulk of the public are in accord. If the evidence in the case is to be the guide, the only verdict (if not one of acquittal) which would have fitted the case, was the Scotch one of ' Not proven.' That verdict it is not within the province of a N.S.W. jury to return; they had to find the prisoner guilty or not guilty, and they found him guilty. Guilty he may be, but in our opinion the evi dence was not sufficiently conclusive to suppor...
