SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1894. THE UNEMPLOYED IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 January 1894

SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1894. THE UNEMPLOYED I** ENSLAOT). A EEPOUT upon the agencies and methods for dealing with the unemployed has been issued T)y the Labour department of the English Board of Trade. It is not an encouraging leport, in the sense that it propounds any certain remedy for an evil which is growing In all countries. But neither is it a despair ing report. Underlying it is an evident lielief that the problem though difficult, is not insoluble. In the concluding summary the compilers say that everything being done towards amelioration of the evil ia in an ex perimental stage. Yet experiments, if not immediately successful, are a contribution to solution, we presume in showing what in some instances will not do. So far as can bs gathered from the evidence given in the course of the inquiry — we give the substance of the summary — the agencies described rather touch the fringe of the distress them go to its root. Useful within their own limits, calculated to be more useful i...

The World's Fair, Chicago. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 January 1894

The World's Eair, Chicago. [Notes bt John W. Pender.] The ' World's Fair' of Chicago is now amongst the things that were, and as I was a daily visitor for three weeks at the great exhibition, prior to the date o£ its closing on the 31st October last, I have jotted a few memos., thinking that perhaps they may be interesting to some of your readers. The official closing was to have taken place on the 30th October, with great pomp and State cere monies, but owing to the sad death of the Chief Magistrate of Chicago — Mayor Harrison — who was shot at his own residence on the previous Saturday evening, by the hand of a ruffian assassin, no closing ceremony took place, the streets of the Fair were deserted, flags were everywhere hoisted half mast in honour of the dead Mayor, who -was a popular citizen, and under whose auspices the Fair was inaugurated. The White City (aB the Fair was called, owing to its buildings being made of a white material) was one of the greatest undertakings of the ...

Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. (Queenslander, Jan. 6.) Encouraging reports are to hand from various parts of the country this week. In the south-east thunderstorms have given a useful amount of moisture, although they have been very patchy, while the dryness of the north districts have been tempered by beneficial rains. In the far west, too, about Tambo and Blftckall, there are indications of an early break in the weather,' and hopes are entertained that we are to have another good season this year. During Monday the weather continued oppres sively hot in Brisbane, and the air was thick with the smoke of bush fireB burning in all directions. Shortly after 7 o'clock in the evening a thunder storm came up from the southward, giving a shower of rain that cooled the atmosphere and laid the dust, though ifc was but of a few minutes' duration. Our Logan correspondent speaks of the intense dryness of tho country in his district, and unhappily the bush fire3 there have...

LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 January 1894

LATE GENERAL NEWS. Now that the Royal Tar has been despatched!: with tho second contingent of emigrants for Paraguay, the New Australia Association is look ing oufc for another vessel to act in a similar capacity. Several vessels in various ports have been inspected, but as yefc no definite purchase has been made. An inquest was held on Friday in Melbourne on the body of Annie M'Lellan, who was dro-rrned recently through jumping off the Albert Park Pier. The principal new witness was a man named Alfred Birfcles, who stated that the allegation o£ the deceased to the effect that he had been keeping company with her was correct. Dr. Youll, the coroner, commented very sharply upon the evidence of Birtles, and told the witness that i£ he had behaved towards- the young woman in the way he had admitted he ought to have 'lied to save her reputation.' ' If I had done what you have done,' added the coroner, ' wild horses would nofc draw the admission from me.' Tho jury brought in a verdict to...

Favorite Odours of Royalty. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 January 1894

Favorite Odours of Royalty. The Empress Eugenie had, and still cherishes, a true Spaniard's taste for strong scents, her favourite odours being sandalwood and verbena. Queen Victoria seldom uses any perfume except the homely and refreshing lavender water, of which large quantities are annually manufactured for her use. , The Princess of Wales delights in that delicate scenfc known as wood violet. The Empress Frederick uses quantities of cologne water especially in the daily bath, which she as a typical Englishwoman, never fails to take unless she is hindered by illness, employing in this way a quart of cologne water daily. The Empress of Austria prefers for toilet uses tho delicate orange scenfc known as Portugal water. The Queen-Regent of Spain has a delicious perfume made for her use from tho spice-scented blossoms of the carnation,

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 January 1894

ECHOES OP SPORT. I am told there was a good deal of fun and much enjoyment at the race meeting held at Allynbrook a few days ago, and the gathering was so much enjoyed and so successful that it will probably be made an annual fixture. The principal events were the Flying Handicap and the Allyn Handicap, and in these the placed horse3 were Exeter, Nugent, and Mersey, and Marchioness, Aristocrat, and Dick. The short race was won by a length, and the other was landed easily. A lengthened programme was filled up with hack races, etc. Some very funny rumours are about in connec tion with the hack race run at the recent Dungog meeting and about which there pro mises to be a good deal of trouble. The winner turned up in a black horse called Jack Jones, nominated by Mr. Pat M'Carthy, and who had been unplaced in a similar event on the first day. After the race a protest was lodged against the winner by the owner of the second horse on the ground of suspicious running, carry ing overweight, ...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. FINANCIAL TROUBLES AND PROVIDENCE, (To the Editor of the Maitland Daily Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 6 January 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. FINANCIAL TROUBLES AND PROVIDENCE. {To the Editor of the Maitland Daily Mercury.) Sir,— I see by the daily papers that one oE our local clergymen has delivered himself of the follow ing absurd and illogical conclusion, viz. : ' That the financial troubles of 1893 were a just visitation by God on His erring people,' or -words to that effect. Such a deduction as this is quite in keeping with the tenets of a creed which, teaches the poor to endure their sufferings uncomplainingly, giving them in lieu of present ?omforfc the visionary joys of a problematical existence in the intangible and far away future. This doctrine of divine inter ference with natural law is a wrong-headed and degrading affair altogether. It does away with human self-reliance (the germ of honest manly efforc), and causes us to look at the natural and logical sequences of cause and effect with a lob sided and untruthful eye. If a man falls off a cart does the Almighty interfere with the laws o...
