LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. PARADOXICAL ALDERMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 January 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. PARADOXICAL ALDERMEN. Sir, — Thanks to your Daily Mercury of Saturday last, tke ratepayers of West Maitland were on that evening made aware of the eccentrio ideas and notions of some of our aldermen. I notice that as regaids the removal of the pound site business Alderman Ross is as usual opposed to the majority, and apparently oblivious to the best interests and consequent prosperity of West Maitland. As our worthy and outspoken Mayor pointed out, unlesB the embankment at the rear of the pound is restored and maintained in good order, goodbye to the safety of the town Bhould the river rise to a height of 35 feet or more. What object could Alderman Ross or any other person have in opposing the resolution in question is to me a puzzle. But when it is recol lected that Alderman Boss was one of the chief opponents of the Maitland embanking scheme, and an advocate of the interests- of the other side as against the town, 'then his action on Friday night last has th...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 January 1894

LOCAL NEWS. A Weather Forecast fob the Tear. — Else- where we publish Mr. Samuel Nathan's weather forecast for the present year. How tiie Cabbies Pared.— At a meeting of the West Maitland Borough Council on Friday evening last, a communication signed by twenty or twenty one of the local cabbies was received,_ requesting that a reduction bo made in their license fees, ?which are looked upon as being too high consider ing the depression which has for some time existed in their line of business. And by way of emphasi sing the request, or attempting to overawe alder men, or for the purpose of taking stock — which we know not — a great many o£ their number filed into the Council Chamber, took up their seats, and anxiously awaited results. When the communica tion was read and received, in accordance with municipal usage, the question arose as to what was to be done with-it. Some aldermen contended that it was » lettor, while others voted it a petition, but the Mayor (who is alwaysvery cor...

Pastoral News, Stock Movements and Markets. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 January 1894

Pastoral News, Stock Move ments and Markets. Narbabbi Weatiieb Eeport.— During the week the weather has been sultry — for the most part very sultry— suggesting the probability of a good thunderstorm with a heavy fall of rain. So fa^ however, the promise has not been fulfilled. We have had plenty of thunder and lightning, it is true, but of rain only what . might be called a homoeopathic dose, about 15 points on Wednesday night. Even this cooled the atmosphere perceptibly, but it warmed up again on the following day, and on Friday it was as sultry as ever. A good steady and heavy fall of rain of some hours duration is now very much needed. Stock generally are still in very fair condition, but it will be hard to keed them eo much longer unless we soon get a few inches of rain. Later on there was a thunderstorm, accompanied by a good fall of rain. — Herald, January 6. ' If you will allow mo to interrupt you a mo ment,' called out a solemn-faced man in the audi ence, ' may I ask what po...

TAMWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 January 1894

TAMWOHTH. Weather warm and dry, though the nights are pleasant. Rain clouds daily hover about, but no rain to speak of has fallen. A downpour would be very welcome to all. Pasture is plentiful, but becoming dry. The New Year was quiet, and the only sports were those at Paradise Gardens, and a cricket match on the Oval between the local team and Quirindi, which resulted in an easy victory for the Tamworth contingent. Good play was exhibited on both sides, and, notwithstanding an intensely warm day, the game was a most enjoyable one throughout. Business is rather quiet now. Mr. John Gush — the owner of Nightingalp, the Tattersalf's Cup winner at the recent Randwick meeting — on his return to Tamworth received congratulations from his many friends, and es pecially (it is likely) from those who backed his steed. Nightingale was also fancied by Mr. Cush himself, who is looked upon as being a straight sportsman — a rara avis in these days. Political matters are quiet at present, and opini...

DISTRICT NEWS. NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 8 January 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondents.! NEWCASTLE. The absence of any exciting topic will account for a short correspondence to-day. The present state of trade is cheerful and expectant. The late settlement of- the eoal question has in a great measure helped to bring such a condition to pass. Basinoss, especially in the large houses, is brisk, and the country orders keep the hands fully employed. Largo numbers* of vessels are soon to arrive, numbering, so we are informed, some 70 odd. This is very hopeful, and now that the holi days are over we may expect brighter and happier times than we have had for a long time. Of local incidents few are to' be recorded. Politics seem to bo agitating tho minds of most people. There are very few who have taken the trouble to consult the electoral rolls to ascertain if their names are contained in the voters lists. The Labour Electoral League is busy in every district forming branches. They have a great say, and will undoubtedly have great influ...

But they are not in the drawer : in deed I had not expected them to be, since I had locked the casket myself, and kept the key in my own possession over since. I rouse Phcobe. It seems cruel to do so, and yet I am so anxious that I must speak and tell some one. ' At first sbb stares blankly up, and does not appear to understand ; now light dawns in her eye3, and I feel sure that she knows something about it. ' I saw them once, my lady,' she says at last, when I motion her to speak.
