TAMWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

TAKtWORTH. The Christmas holidays were somewhat dull, owing doubtless to the intensp heat and depressed state of the times. The various churches conducted their services in the usual befitting manner, and attracted large congregations. The ecclesiastical services were creditable, and decorations, though protuse, were tastetul. ' Comparisons are odious.' Therefore it is just to say that each of the tabernacles afforded instructive and impressive sermons. One pleasing feature was apparent through out and that was ah absolute absence of excessive ' show,' and the endeavour of each denomination to outdo the other. Of course there were the usual sports on the Oval and at Paradise Gardens on, Boxing night. Creditably there was an absence of that rowdyism which is soEuetimes companion to the gay and festive season. There were no horso races in town, though the usual amateur meetings took place round about. * The weather has been intensely hot during the week, but steady rain — a great desi...

GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

GRETA. Greta Miking Trouble.— Writing at a late hour on the last night of the year, I have to report what may be termed a new— and some will say a more promising aspect in the trouble that hangs over the mining industry of this town. It will be remembered that this lodge had an offer of 2s 6d per ton from the company during the past week- and that ridiculous as that rate was, some one moved, ' That before sending. the Greta company a final rejection of the terms, the offer should first be laid before the Delegate Board. This motion was carried, but mark it— only after another motion that bound us to accept no less rates than those offered by the A. A. Company. The terms of the A. A. Co. are 3s 2d and the Greta Co. 2s 6d, and we, along with the rest of the dis trict, bound ourselves to go for the higher rate and reject the lower. And after that we decided (before wounding the feelings of the directors with a written refusal) that we'd show their offer to Messrs. Curley and Co. At the...

Failure of a Labour Colony. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

Failure of a Labour Colony. ffihe Labour colony at Leongatha, Victoria, hae proved a failure. It was, indeed, impossible (says the Melbourne Age) that any other result could attend the scheme. The colony is situated in an unsuitable locality. The land is too heavily timbered to permit of its beinpeacily cultivated, in addition to which there is no opportunity for the Battlers to earn money for the support of themselves auu i&miiies wnilst the crops a-e growintr bv working -for the surrounding farm erg. In order that a labour colony may be successful it should be located on good land, roquiring little clearing, ana in close proximity to a farming population so as to enable the settlers to oupport the colony by working for farmers during the .ploughing and harvesting Beasons. The im mediate stoppage of the Leongatha labour colony, which was inaugurated by the Mayor j of Melbourne and a number of philanthropic I gentlemen, will bo due to the cessation of private subscriptions. ...

New Year's Eve in Maitland. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 1 January 1894

'New Year's Eve in Maitland. The good old English custom of seeing the 'old year out' and the ' new year in' was observed in Maitland on Saturday evening with all the old-time vigour, but with less of youthful folly and miB chievousnees than we have seen it on many former occasions. Of course Saturday night was not exactly New Year's Sve, but it was kept as such because the inhabitants of Maitland are essentially a Sabbath-observing people, and ifc would never do to have the solemn stillness of Sunday night broken with tbe noisy crowds, the music, the sing ing, and the hilarity which are the necessary accom paniments of the last night of the departing year. As on Christmas Eve, thousands thronged the streets, and it seemed to us that the community must be enlarging, for the crowd appeared much greater than on any previous occasion. The shops and shop windows were still gay and bright, and those who missed the opportunity of seeing- the Christmas displays and decorations iu the shop ...
