THE FEDERAL CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
THE FEDERAL CONFERENCE. The date of Mr. Raid's departure for tho Conference of Premiers to be held at Hobart on the 29th instant has been slightly altered. The Premier will now leave on the 22nd instant instead of tho 23rd, as originally intended, in order to fit in with the arrangements for holding the Federation meeting in Melbourne, which is now fixed to take place on the 23rd inst., in consequence of the Town Hall being not available on the 24th, the date first arranged. Mr. Nelson, Premier of Queensland, after some hesitation has decided to attend tho Conference, and will proceed direct from Brisbane to Hobart by steamer. Mr. Nelson's reluctance is un derstood to have been due to the barren nature of previous conferences, and hie disappointment at the result. Mr. Reid, however, is very sanguine that the coming Conference will be more fruitful, and- feels suro that somo definite steps will be taken which will result in simultaneous action being adopted in all the colonies to adv...

THIRD TEST MATCH. AUSTRALIA LEADS ON THE FIRST INNINGS BY 114 RUNS. Callaway and Griffon Bowl Finely, and Bruce Bats Brilliantly. ADELAIDE, Saturday Night. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
THIRD TEST MATCH. AUSTRALIA LEADS ON THE FIRST INNINGS BY 114 RUNS. ' Callaway and Giffen Bowl Finely, and Brnce Bats Brilliantly. (BY WISE. — PBOM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT). Adelaide, Saturday Night. The weather is distressingly hot, a north wind blowing with considerable force, bringing clouds of duBt at times, and the sky is overcast and cloudy, and a? change is evidently approaohing, though it is probable that the wind will work round through the west and south without rain Tho wicket does not appear accountable for the poor batting display of Australia. There aro a tew spots on the pitch, thus possibly accounting for tho cramped batting. It is considered morally im possible for tho wicket to mend, and good judges argued before play was resumed that Riohardson's average of five wickets for 75 runs would be eclipsed by Giffen, thus making England's chance of passing Australia's score appear at the time proble matical. Punctually at noon the Australians entered the field, Maclaren an...
WHY II. MOSES DID NOT PLAY AT ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 13 January 1895
WHY n. MOSES DID NOT PLAY [AT ADELAIDE. [By a ' Sunday Times ' Cricket Special.] It is hardly necessary for me to state that when it became known that H. Moges, the famous Now South Wales batsman, had decided not to play in the test match now being fought out at Adelaide, tho public in the different colonies, and especially in New South Wales, was greatly disappointed. I was, in fact we all were, loth to believe that the champion left-hand batsman was actuatod in this determination by other than legitimate reason. Mr. Mosos returned to Sydney in tho Melbourne express on Friday with several other members of the team, and being desirous of letting the public know tho true cause of his standing out, I sought him yesterday morning. He looked as brown as a berry, and was in the best of health and spirits. Congratulating him on his success, I at once unfolded my mission, and he readily answered : ' I was afraid of my leg,' suiting action to tho words by feeling the sinews at the back of h...

NEWCASTLE GOAL 'TROUBLES. RESULT OF THE BALLOT. No General Strike. THE HETT0N COLLIERY. ('Sunday Times' Special Wire.) Newcastle, Saturday Night. People here havo been extremely anxious about thG final result of the ballot aa to whether the miners would have a general strike or otherwise, and were extremely gratified when it was made known to-day that the final returns were given against a strike by a narrow majority. To-day the directors of the Hotton Col liery announced that, in consequence of receiving no reply to their proposals from the board delegates, thoy would refuse to . parley further with the Unionists as such, but would treat with them individually. A house has been put up for the men who go in as non-Unionists, and others will bo lodged thero. All cooking con veniences, ovons, &c., are in position. They begin work on Monday with 50 men.

DOING SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE. Legislators Will Play . Cricket ON BEHALF OF THE DISTRESSED UNEMPLOYED. Remarks' bj the Premier and Sir George Dibbs. We have once or twice thrown out the suggestion that our legislators should arrange a cricket match, the proceeds of the ' gate ' to be devoted to relioving the distress of THE WIVES AND CHILDREN of the genuine unemployed. Last Sunday we pi'iuted a paragraph following up the suggestion, and pointing out that a match, Ministerialists v Opposition, would be a great draw if the elevens wero captained by the Premier, the Hon. G. H. Reid, and the ex-premier, Sir George Dibbs. ,Mr. Reid, as is well known, is president of the N:S.W. Cricket Association, and consequently a cricketer by virtuo of his office, although hardly in test match con dition, perhaps, at present. Sir George Dibbs is said to have been a demon bowler — under-arm — in his young days, and A BONNOil WITH THE BAT. In Parliament there are many capable cricketers, and the match ...

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. (The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed by correspondents.) . Are Our Great Ocean Liners Safe ? — Sir, — Everyone familiar with shipping mast have noticed, the tendency of late years to reduce' the sail-power of oeeau-going steamers of tho largest typo. Gradually equuresails have been dispensed with, and the masts have been stripped until they are little more than mere cargo derrioks aud flagpoles, aud even these havo been reduced from four, as in the Ormuz and Carthage and similar vessels, to two in the ease of the finest specimen of naval architecture of them all — viz., the Uphir, ana tuese two are out mere stioss m proportion to tho immense hull of the vessel, whioh could not spread enough canvas to steady such an enormous mass in a moderate gale. -Of course it may be admitted that the machinory is of tho newest, best, audJ,moBt reliable typo up to date.
