"National Credit." [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
'National Credit.' Mr. J. R. Palmer, ex-Mayor of Gran ville, Iiiib embodied in a pamphlet just issued by Turner and Henderson his views on the State-note question, recently set before the GranviUe Labor League. His brochure is for the most part clearly written, and he is enthusi astic on the subject of the benefits to follow a State-note currency. In the main we are with the author, whom we welcome as a man of a type all too rare now-a-days. But, though we are fail to agree with him as to details. The inconvertibility of the note he pro poses is a danger : and the raising of a redemption fund from ordinary taxation is open to very serious objection. The author appears, too, to have mixed up the question of general currency with that of special issue of State notes for public works purposes, in other words, loans ; and to have overlooked the risk of allowing politicians to issue paper money ad lib. It is bec&uBe we wish to safeguard the application of the principle that we dr...
WOMAN & HOUSEHOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
WOMAN & HOUSEHOLD. Every woman who has the least pretensions to well dressing must possess herself of one of the smart velvet, velveteen, or satin 'shirts;' they are blouse-like, belted at waist, and made with a single or double box Cdown front, or gathered at neck, and over a trifle at waist, in pouch form. Quite large sleeves of the leg-o'-mutton type, or the full bishop's shape, are correct. These coloured velvet shirts are worn with black cloth or serge skirts tor me street, finishing neck off with a rnme of chiffon, with pleated stole ends, headed rosettes of flowers— violets principally, for this modest little blossom is immensely popular. Black satin shirts, trimmed with handsome buttons, ore much worn, with coloured cloth skirts. Complete outdoor toilettes are shown in serge or faced cloth, handsomely braided. The skirt has but a narrow braiding at hem, for skirt trimmings are all narrow this Beason; but the coat, which is single breasted, is braided in military fash...
Natural Inaptitude for the Trade. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Natural Inaptitude for the Trade. A peculiar case, having suggestive social features, come before the Parra matta Bench on Wednesday, Messrs. F. W. Edwards, (P.M.) and B. Harper (J.P.) presiding. Herbert Partington proceeded against E. F. Hewitt, of Granville, for wages, £19 6s. Mr. F. W. O'Brien appeared for defendant. Plaintiff lifl/1 Kaon a.rmTfint.M*Ad fcn An. fendant, a bootmaker of Granville; and sued for wages as above to which he was entitled, under the indentures, plaintiff admitted that defendant had repeatedly complained of his unfitness for the trade, and had written again and again to his parents asking them to cancel the indentures. It was a fact that though he had served a three years' apprenticeship he did not come up to the standard of a journeyman Doocm&Ker, ana was now wonang as an improver. Defendant said the lad was quite unfit for the business, and it would be impossible ever to make a mechanic out of him. - He had dis covered this early, and had told h...

Roads. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Boads. Mr. Purser succeeded in getting another small sum of money granted for the road leading from North Bocks to Baulkham Hills, which is already spent, and improves our part of the road wonderfully. It is hoped that the Baulkham Hills people will join with North Bocks and Pennant Hills to try and get a bridge built over the creek so as to have close communication. It will mean the cutting off of about four miles from Baulkham Hills to North Bocks. It is a road that is certainly needed in Sherbrooke.
NORTH ROCKS. The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
NORTH ROCKS. The Weather. It is still very cold, and we have every appearance of rain at times, but we are not receiving what we consider our proper share of moisture. The or chards are feeling the want of rain to a very great extent ; it makes us glut the markets with inferior fruits. But we must live in hopes of being able to sup ply the markets with good quality stuff, when favoured with good seasons ; and, of course, reap a few extras to make up for lost time.
Improvements. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Improvements . Wentworthville is beginning to go ahead, after sleeping for a number of years. Houses are going up all over the place ; and we expect in a few years to see a nice little town here. Since Christmas Mr. P. J. Staunton has opened a general store ; and on the Prospect-road Mr. Benson, of Sydney, in Vinilrlincr a vprv nine rftfiiclAnp.n. Mr. Cooper is also making great alterations in his place on the same road, and the old house looks like new. On the other side of the Western-road a new weather board house is going up for Mr. Oak den, of Sydney, and Mr. Brooks also has built a little cottage on the same side of the road.

SMITHFIELD Quadrille Assembly. On Friday evening the most success ful social gathering of the season' took place. It had been organised by Mr. and Mrs. E. Farey, who did all in their power to promote the enjoyment of those present. The attendance was good, and the music (supplied by Miss i»i JL'BkLOJ OUU 1IJ.1i XJ. JJU1UI 111 HBOJJ1IJ.(J« The duties of M.C. were most affably carried out by Mr. Farey. The. ladies were dressed fashionably. The follow ing we noticed : — Misses Herford, Bolds (2), G.

Farey's contribution ' I was dreaming,' was well appreciated.
The Granville Railway Station Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
The G-ranville Railway Station Garden. Great care has been taken with the plants, flowers and shrubs in the rnina ture botanical gardens whioh Mr. Downey and his subordinates have established at Granville station; but owing to the want of rain during the autumn and winter this year they are not seen to such advantage as the labor expended might seem to warrant. It may not be generally known, that (Strathfield and so on) outside profes sional aid is secured, to make the station gardens look bright and flourishing, here at Granville the whole credit for the admirable state in which the plants and shrubs are kept is due to the staff. It is doubtful, however, if there is sufficient water given to the plants this dry weather ; and presuming that a plentiful supply is on tap, we would advise Station-master Downey to turn on the tap sometimes. Else the bower of beauty won't last a joy for everl

SEARCHING FOR RATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
SEAECHING FOR RATES. The fact that (as represented at a neighbouring Council meeting) the small municipality of Auburn, by em ploying a professional searcher, was able to discover the owners of over 2000 ratable properties that had, up to date, escaped the tax-gatherer is suggestive — especially in view of the recent applica tion by various municipalities to the Premier to provide for municipal regis tion of property-Bales. The machinery of that long-worn-out Municipalities Act is bo unsound, dom tneoreuciuiy and practically, that it is marvellous how it came to be preferred to the simple, automatic process of municipal registration. The hope of a soon forthcoming Local Government Act has failed us, once again ; and even the possibility of obtaining this year a fur ther patch on the old garment has now passed away. But facts like those recently adduced in connection with Auburn's hire of a city professional searcher give us food for thought — open up avenues of speculation. Auburn, ...

An Enterprising Business Man. "SPRINGFIELD " SLAUGHTERHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
An Enterprising Business Map. ' SPRINGFIELD ' SLAUGHTER HOUSE. It would not be easy to imagine a more satisfactory establishment — as viewed from either the civic or the busi ness standpoint — than the splendid ' Springfield ' slaughter-house and yards, at Blaxcell-street, GranviUe, and the property of the well-known Gran ville and Pammatta butcher, Mr. John Mahony. A reporter, representing the Free Press, had the privilege of a look over the establishment, this week, in company with the enterprising pro prietor ; and those persons who care to do likewise will find a store of gratify ing novelties ready to greet thorn on their visit, and much to please, in con nection with that most important matter (so much to the front in modern times), viz., attention to health requirements in connection with the food we eat. Some months ago, Mr. Mahony de cided to build a new slaughter-house ; and as the Board of Health of N.S.W. was at that time enacting new pro visions to deal with all such pl...
Labour League Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 6 July 1895
Labour League Meeting. A public meeting under the auspices of the Granville Branch of the Labour Electoral League was held on Tuesday evening last, in the School of Arts, GranvUle. Mr. B. Fairweather (Presi dent of the Branch) occupied the chair; and among those present we noticed — Alderman Dyer. Messrs. Pemberton, Clay, Withington, Webber, Bean, Love, Cheetham, Hill, and Ayre (secretary), Bev. J. Furlong, Alderman Kelman, Messrs. Bourke, Hopkins, Gill, and M'Leod. The Chairman referred to the cir cumstances under which they were meeting that evening. The Labour League was, as usual, first in the field, — and it gave the call to men to fall into line, and return a natural, true-born representative for a district like Granville— a Labour representa tive. This time there would be the old issues — Freetrade and Protection (with the little difference that existed between them) ; but there would be, too, a brand-new cry — that for the abolition ui due up^wi. uuuoe. iiiui tit tiuu uoou f...
