GENERAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895
GENERAL REMARKS. It must be admitted that during the four business days of the past week the market for I investment Btocks in Sydney has been very dull. ' Firm but dull ' ia the statement of a leading sliarebroker. There has been very little exchange of securities, but if you tried to buy a largish line at present prices you could not do bo. A fluctuating market would, of course, suit the brokers and jobbers best, and the present denrth of business may be taken as an indication that holders are satis fied with the prospects. before them, and will not part unless at higher rates. It seems to ua that Bank of New South Wales shareer must continue to improve, and we repeat ou recommendations to buy them, and also the '* rights' of the same bank. There has again been a fair amount of busi ness in silver stocks, Centrals having had most attention in this quarter. Their rise was, however, rather too rapid, and recent buyerB took their profits on Monday arid Tuesday, after which pi-ices ea...

THE DUNN PROSPECTING SYNDICATE. Certain to Find One Mine of Great Richness. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895
THE DUNN PROSPECTING SYNDICATE. Certain to Fiud One Mine of Great Richness. Last week (says the Gol dfielijs Courier, Coolgardie) Mr. Alex. Forrest invited the members of the Dunn prospecting syndicate and a few other friends to take a glass of wine with him in the Mayor'B parlor, and drink success to the new venture. There were present the Hon. W. E. Marmion, the Messrs. Arthur and Alfred Hassell, Dicken son, Darlot, and others. Mr. Forrest, in pro posing the heath of Mr. Dunn and his brothers, stated that it was the largest and completest prospecting party that had yet gone into the field. Mr. Dunn had already discovered, during the three years whioh he had been associated with his present partners, such valuable properties as the Brilliant, Lone Hand, and Wealth of Nations mines, and the developments which were taking place on the last property would show that it was a mine second to none in the colony. He had always found Mr. Dunn to be an honorable and straightforward man in al...
JOHN BULL FOR EVER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895
JOHN BULL FOR EVER. An enterprising undertaker once placarded the city, asking why people should live and be miserable when they could die and be buried comfortably for 30s, or some such enticing figure. Mr. Webber, of the John Bull Catering Company, 72 King-street, croes one better, and says, ' Why die at all, or even live miserably, when you can dine luxuriously off three courses for 9d?' Mr. Webber is a man who believes in being abreast of the times — in fact a little ahead of them, and as in these days shillings are soarce, or, at least, have to be looked at twice before being parted with, he pins his faith to the ' nimble ninepence.' Throe courses — soup, joints, and pftBtry, with tea, bread, and butter — for ninepence, should satisfy anyone ; and when, in addition, everything is good,' properly cooked, and nicely served — as it iB at the John Bull Restaurant — hundreds of people should, and probably will, roll up to receive satisfaction.
WINTER FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895
WINTER FASHIONS. Messrs. Osborne and Co., of 57 Oxford street, near Oxford-square, desire us to draw the attention of country visitors and others to their winter novelties in mantles, jackets, costumes, blouses, aud dress materials of the latest style and design. The dressmaking department is increasing very rapidly, owing no doubt to the excellent work, good fitting, and moderate prices, and also to the fact that Messrs. Osborne's dressmaker having had considerable experience, both London and con tinental, is able to satisfactorily execute every description of costume.

Reminds one of the Frenchman in ' The Amazons,' who knew English sport and proverbs, and mixed them up beautifully. Not Drunk, but flying.— On Friday ev...

Till this is accom plished the fate of the entombed men will not be known. The ship Bothwell Castle got stuck in the river over the tunnel a few days ago, and it is thought that this may have ca...

(TO THE EDITOR OF THE ' SUNDAY TIMES.') Sir, — When I read in your paper that poor Dean had been sentenced to death, both my husband and myself were very much surprised at tho verdict of tho jury. My husband has known Dean for a number of years, and always found him a most respectable young fellow, aud one who would not hurt anyone, let alone try to poison his wife. He was a member of my husband's lodge, and always behaved him self well. I am sure if any thing i...

Is that so ? Well — h'm — a commercial traveller told me. Ah ! that settles it ! But how about the Show generally ? It is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. Oh, well, that's not too bad ! Bnt why don't you havo more equestrienne events? Best thing in the Show. Never has ther...

HOSPITAL SATUEDAY. Two charming young nurses woro to be' seen all day at the entrance to tho Eden Photo Studios, opposite tho railway, bailing up, with sweet smiles, tho great crowd of per eons who entored tho place for Sittings and Photographs. ' Can't run it,' said one young man. Oh, yes, responded tho nurBe ; ' you get from Eden 6 Enamelled Cabinets and a lovely large Opal for 6s 6d, and no extras for enamelling, &o., so that you save quite 4o in extras that you would have to pay town photo graphers ; and Eden does not turn his Opals out plain and misty about the oyes, bat has each Opal worked by an artist.'

POLITICAL PELLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 14 April 1895
POLITICAL PELLETS. The veteran politician announces his wil lingness to give up the fight if the people don't want him. Poor old Surrendry I Parliament trot through a lot of work during the week ; but when analysed it ' proves ' badly. Members have simply escaped their work this week in order to get a holiday over Easter. They are like a lot of boys rather than Btaid and reliable representatives of the people. The Bay View Private Asylum Commission exonerate Dr. Vause, but consider that he should have disclosed the details of.Major General Richardson's treatment to tho visiting officials and medical men representing the Government and the relatives. Mr. M'Gowen's dissent from the report declares tho treatment of the Major-General improper. Whether the evidence will or will not see the light is problematical. It may eventually, but with names of patients omitted, and dashes inserted instead. Some ex-patients now hold prominent positions in this community, and it would be shameful to ...

DISTRESS IN THE CITY. The Benevolent Society Appeal. TERRIBLE PRIVATIONS OP THE POOR. 1000 Children Require Food. shownby our special — we have received a few additional subscriptions in response to the appeal of the previous week. There have also been inquiries as to the addresses of the families mentioned, in order that work might be afforded those members able to undertake it, and those inquiries we have forwarded to the manager of the Benevolent Society, Mr. Edward Maxted. It should be borne in mind that the eases described are BUT A FEW OF SCORES j on the list of the Benevolent Society. They i were described as typical of the majority. It is only by strengthening the hands of a society like tha Benevolent that distress can be re lieved — even then, as has been shown, the relief is only sufficient to keep body and soul together. Instead of subscribing for specific cases, therefore, it would perhaps be better if the amounts were donated to the general fund of the Benevolent Socie...
