Y0I0E OF THE PEOPLE. LETT lilts TO THE EDITOR. (The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents.) Those Stray injf Horses. — Sir, — Permit me, with your usual sense of fair play, to bring under the notice of the publio what I consider an injustice. A pony got out of a paddock at an early hour in the morning, and was found by tho vigilant lamplighter of borough of Waverley ( who is also Inspector of Nuisances), in company with tho pony of tho Council clerk,, which, to my knowledge, has boen seen straying a few times. By some strange freak of justico, the pony belonging to the ratepayer was impounded, and cost 10a 6d for release, whilst the Council clerk's wns left free. Where, I ask, does the justico como in? — I am, &c., Faik Play, Waverley.

TRAM, BOAT, AND 'BUS. (to THE EDITOR OT? THE ' SUNDAT TIMES.') ' M.' writes Thank yon for your sug gestion as to tram tickets being inter changeable for payment of fares by other conveyances.

I hope ydix will ' keep pegging away ' at it, and get it accomplished, as you have done with so many other re« forms.'
WHAT MAY HAPPEN TO A MAN AT MANLY. Arrested for Pocket-picking. A CASE DEMANDING INQUIRY. "Hands Up." [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
! WHAT MAY HAPPEN TO A MAN AT MANLY. Arrested for Pocket-picking. A CASE DEMANDING INQUIRY. 'Bands Up.' We direct tha attention of the Minister for Justice, the Hon. A. J. Gould, to a case which calls for immediate action on his part. It is that of a lad charged with attempted pocket-picking. We refrain from publishing his name, for, although he now stands before the world a convicted felon, and as such his name ia public property, there is very good reason to doubt his guilt. The case was tried on j Wednesday at the Water Police Court, and the lad sentenced to one month's im- ] prisonment. It is practically unquestionable that there has been A MISCAEEIAGE op justice. The evidence of, a constable and a Wharfinger at Manly was that this youth when crossing a gangway from one of the steamers, attempted to pick a man's pocket. The person whose pocket was supposed to have been in danger tendered I evidence to the effect that no such n attempt was made, so far as he was aware. |B There w...
PROMOTIONS IN THE POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
Pit0M.0T10.NS IN THE POST-OfflCE. TO THE EDITOR OS' THE ' SUNDAY TIMES.') Sir, — I desire again to call your attention to the manner in which promotions are made in the General Post-office. When the present P.M.G. took office employes were given to understand that they would be promoted according to their length of ser vice. Yot within the last week t-vo outside bays have been appointed to the mai branch, appointments which telegraph messengers have been waiting for for over six or seven years. If this is tho way Mr. Cook intends to keep his promises, what is the outlook for those who are low in the service, yet struggling to support widowed mothers, in some instances, on the miserable pittance at present allowed them by the Department ? When Mr. Kidd's term of office expired it was thought that there was a bettor prospect for the employes ; yet at this rate matters are even worse than before. Trusting to tho friendship you have always shown to the working masses, and to your own st...

AMATEUR FISHERMEN'S ASSOCIATION. (TO THE EDITOR " SUNDAY TIMES.") [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
AMATEUtt FlSH.rcRM.EFS ASSO CIATION. (to THE EDITOE ' SUNDAY TIMES.') . Sir,— It may be taken as an axiom that amateur fishermen would rather anchor ' themselves for a whole hour at the butt end of a six-cord line on a cold beach than sit down to a ten-minutes' writing task, and your note to ' gentle anglers ' in last issue was very much needed. If we are to have the harbor conserved to us, and if we still hanker after select spots of the Hawkesbury, it behoves ua to make some sort of effort towards the restriction of the net fishermen's field of operations. Nothing is to be gained by a passive sub mission to the meshes the net fisherman would weave around us. Some one must kick, and kick hard, or we might just as well give our pet lines away to people who like to tie parcels with stout string. The harbor is boing sifted through the sieves of the Italian fisherman until it will be hard to find a viciously active bluebottle. One time a man could have a day's sport in the harbor, and ...

THE SERVICE. PLAIN TALK ABOUT THE STATE DEPARTMENTS. The Lands and tlie Officers Thereof. How Not to Settle People on the Laud. The Crowds of Officials— Pay for No Work — Land Board Facts. - nr.) In dealing with tho great question of the re-organisation of our land administration it is impossible to overlook the fact that the cardinal blunder of the '61 Land Act, ' selection before survey,' has been the most fruitful cause of expense and confu sion in 'the matter of dealing with the public estate. How such a principle could ever have been adopted is hard to imagine, for no private individual, whether acting on his own behalf or as a trustee for others, would ever dispose of land in such a fashion. By that Act two different classes, with opposing interests, were com pelled to scramble for possession of our lands, and an era of corruption, blackmail, dummyism, and chaotic confusion was inaugurated, the evil effects of whioh will be felt for many long years to come. In settling an agri...

House; The recent Centennial Social Club's picnic to the Avenue was a great success.

The club's 75yds championship was won by Mr. R. Hirschfeld. The president, Mr. H. Lipman, and his energetic committee, deserve every credit for the success of the outing. Tlio first council meeting of the A.H.C. Guild, St. Patrick's Branch, was held in the Federation Hall on Tuesday evening, 8th instant. Tbe election of the secretary resulted in Bro. J. Clarke being appointed to .the position. After the business had bean gone through the warden urged the new council to encourage the young men to join the ranks, and make the branch a strong body.

I AH TIRED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
1 AM TIRED. Sufferers from indigestion and liver com plaint are subject to a continued feeling of drowsiness, headache, tired, aching limbs, and a general inclination to languor.' These symptoms are due primarily 'to a ueiicienc secretion ot bile, the natural cathartic of the liver, which, when secreted in insufficient quantities, permits the coarse and fibrous particles of tho food and other waste and poisonous matter from all parts of the system to become impacted iu the duodenum and lower intestines, creating a very dangerous condition which requires instant and proper treatment. An experience of five years with Clements Tonic has proved this remedy a specific for such complaints, and its universal success I has resulted in thousands of imitations being forced on the market ; not because they possess any therapeutic value, for they are purely speculative ventures. Sufferers who desire to get relief must insist on having Clements Tonic. It acts scientifi cally, has proved its effi...
NEW YORK LIFE INSURANCE CO. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
NEW YOM LIFE INSURANCE CO. An idea of tho extent to which life assur ance is oarried on in the United States, and the safeguards with whioh some of the great companies there take pains to surround them selves, may be gathered from a perusal of the commissioners' cortifieato of the Now York Life Insurance Company, which will be found iu our advertising columns this issue. This document has reference to an audit and examination of tho company's accounts by the insurance commissioners of the States of Massachusetts, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, and Texas, pursuant to the invitation of the President cf the Company, and the result affords testimony of the magnitude as woll as the soundness of the Company's operations. It may be mentioned that this audit is of a unique and exceptional character, and entiroly optional on the part of tho Companv, but, as a result or their investigations, the commis sioners certify 'that each stook and bond owned, eaoh collateral loan, each bo...

MUNICIPAL ROLL STUFFING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
MUNICIPAL ROLL STUFFING. At the last meeting of the Darlington Borough Council, Alderman Moran called attention to a practice which is said to have been largely resorted to for stuffing the voters' rolls by inserting the names as occupiers of non-residents of the borough. It was alleged that some ownOrs of property on paying the rates adopted this practice in order to command votes eitlior for them selves or the candidates whom they may be supporting. As tho samo thing may be attempted in other boroughs, tho members of Revision Courts would do woll to be on | their guard and carefully scrutinise tho I names submitted to them. I
