LETTER TO THE EDITOR. LARRIKINISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 February 1894

LETTER TO THE EDITOR. LABEIKINISM. Sib,— Knowing well that your columns are always open for the purpose of giving publicity to matters which require public attention, I assure you will allow me space to bring under thft notice of the powers that be, the conduct of a number or loafing cads who frequently make their presence in High-street conspicuous by their rowdyism, etc. On Saturday night last a number of boys tooJc advantage of the cheap price at which melons were to be obtained at a shop in High-Btreetj but it is easy to imagine their disappointment and disgUBt when only a few yards from the shop to come in contact with a gang of idle roughs, who not only knocked the melons out of their hands, but, after guzzling portion of them, threw pieces of same at the boys, without the slightest regarc for people passing by. This conduct was continued for some time. And, Sir, one would think it strange if he were told that a policeman was within thirty yards of the place where such larriki...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 February 1894

It is some lifctf e time since we heard of the Continental dopes of war, but tho Gerinin Army mayiceuvres again bring them to tho'front. Five trained 'dogs, it appears — two Scotch and three German sheep dogs — were put on fcdal the other day, and acquitted themselves satisfactorily. They carried despatches from outpost to headquarters and back again very speedily, distinguishing them selves especially l-y night. A9 searchers for wounded men, we are told, their keen scent and, instinct were particularly valuable, and we are quite prepared to hear, as we do, that the Gernmu dogs are more gifted than tho Scotch. Germany, France, and Italy now possess military dogs, and it would not bo surprising if some gallant member oE the Eaglish Legislature, ia search of a novelty for discussion on the. army estimates, were to advooata I the attachment of a dog battation to our roroea.

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 February 1894

ECHOES OF SPORT. In Mr. Henry Custanee's ' Riding Recollections,' just published, a atory appears about a clergyman, who called at the house of n, turf character known as Billy Nicholl, and Mrs. Nicholl said, ' William, Mr. Johnson, the vicar, had called for a subscription for the restoration of our church.' Billy, who, we are told, ' was always rough and ready, replied 'Gie him a pony.' ' The clergyman, hearing this remark, said to Mrs. Nicholl, ' I am very sorry, but a pony would be of no use to me, as I neither ride nor drive.' She could not help laughing on telling Billy what the clergyman had said, so he called out, ' Well, gie him a tenner, and tell him to be off.' On receiving the .£10 Mr. Johnson thanked Mrs. Nicholl with effusion, and went away quite satisfied, little thinking he had Io3t £15 by not taking what was first offered him. Whilst taking part in the Flying Welter at Rose hill on Saturday the well-known racehorse Hero met with an accident which will probably debar ...

London Sales of Colonial Wool. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 February 1894

London Sales of Colonial Wool. The first series of the colonial wool sales of the present year commenced in London on January 16, the quantities offered being as fol lows :— New South Wales, 5883 bales ; Queensland, 1476 bales; Victorian, 291 bales ; South Anstralian, 1297 bales; West Australian, 44 bales ; Tasmanian, 62 bales ; New Zealand, 922 balea ; Cape, 560 bales; Natal, 31 bales; making a total of 10,556 balee. There was about an average attendance of buyers, write Messrs. Charles Balme & Co., but competition was marked by some hesitation. Prices for merino descriptions, both Australasian and South African, showed no quotable variation from. December values, though the tendency was on the whole rather against than in favour of sellers. Crossbred wools, on the other hand, ruled fully up to the last sales' currency, the coarser descriptions frequently realising au advance of 5 per cent.

A BEILIiIANT EC-RECAST. Australia has had traduceram England bntb recent and ancient. But other treatment was accorded to her on January 9, when Miss Shaw read to the members of the Eoyal Colonial Institute a paper on ' The Austra lian Outlook.' The spirit of propb&cy descended upon the accomplished lady jour nalist, and the principarfao.lt in her perform ance ia that with the eye of faith she sees an Australian future too glowing and too gor geous for local belief. However, one effect of her paper baa been to bring these provinces in uncommon colours before the attention of the British public. The paper has been commented upon by many oF the leading journals in England. Punch favours the subject with a cartoon. The Court Oircular has written upon it. One enthusiastic editor designates Alias Sh»w a pillar of the empire. The ' Speetator, Truth, and others stand amazed at the picture limned by Mies Shaw*, and ask why there is not a set of emigration to the favoured lands she d...
