THE WRONG THING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
THE WRONG THING. There can be no question that the N.S.W. authorities always do the wrong thing if allowed to. Wo have now a lawyer at the head of the Government, and he, not unnaturally, perhaps, is standing by the lawyers. There have been several instances of this already. The latest is in connec tion with the additions to the Supreme Court buildings in King-street — whioh additions are to cost £10, 000, an estimate that will no doubt swell to =620,000 before the workis concluded. Mr. Reid's endeavor to provide better accommodation for the judges is not unreasonable. We take no exception to the extra provision being made ; it is certainly needed. What we do object to, though, is the senseless waste of money in patching and tacking bits on to an old building which never can be suitable for Courts. In the first place, these Courts are in thewrong position. There is no occasion for them to be in the heart of the city. Moreover, it is frequently impossible to hear evidence in two of t...
INTERCHANGEABLE FARE TICKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
INTERCHANGEABLE FARE TICKETS. With reference to the suggestion already made in the columns of the Sunday Times that some arrangement should be made by which tram tickets should be taken at their full value in payment of omnibus and ferry fares, tuere can do no aouDC tnat it would be an immense convenience to the travelling public o£ the city and suburbs, and aleo to the pro prietors of the boats and vehicles referred to. As it is there are several omnibus companies issuing tickets besid&s the ferry companies, and persons in the habit of moving about much are almost compelled to carry about with them a perfect assortment of these documents, which are apt to become a source of anxiety and loss, not to speak of the trouble and delays involved sometimes at critical moments and when time is an objeot,. in sorting them out from each other and from the other contents of one's purse or pocket book, and in purchasing the different varieties. It appears to us that it would 'be an easy...
WITH WHAT RESULT? [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
WITH WHAT RESULT? We would like to ask Mr. T. M. Slat tery what good he expeots to come of the Supreme Court case, whioh is in tended to test tho legality of payment of members of the present Parlia ment. Does he imagine that if the deoision is in his favor it will mean the abolition or payment ot members r It is hardly likely that he could be so foolish. There are many no doubt; who hold the opinion that payment of members is a mistake, but they are not the majority, and it must be plain to them that even if the finding of the Court is to the effect that pay ment of members is at present un authorised by an existing Statute, Parliament will at once set to work to remedy the omission. The only appa rent results of tho so-called test will be to put some money in the pockets of ihe^lawyers — Mr. Slattery undoubtedly will not object to that— - and to occasion sonje waste of time in Parliament. If those who are at the back of the attorney who is to con duct this test case will be satisf...
A TERRIBLE SUSPICION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
A TERRIBLE SUSPICiON. The following paragraph from a New Zealand paper naturally gives rise to a horrible suspicion: — 'Owing to the scarcity of maid-servants in this district, men are being engaged to perform the .1 i-i-' _ _ rni ? ? i. _ l : Ai.1 _ ? ? ? ? UUMOM. Cl/50 H» ilUUXt! SUOVtt ID WagfeS, but they do more work.' It would seem that the 'New Woman' has not only asserted her equality, but her superiority, for she has practically declared that domestic duties are only suitable to poor, weak man. Quito recently we published particulars of women' swaggers — not swag ger women, be it understood — being seen on tbe road in Now Zealand, and theso facts, coupled with the lady Mayor of One hunga, the kuicfcerbocker wedding at Christchurch, and other similar facts and incidents, indicate the declino of tho malo sex and the ascent of the female in the land so bountifully favored by naturo What will be woman's next move there ? Something revolutionary, 110 doubt, for she is hardly like...
FISH, OH! [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
FISH, OH ! This is the time of year when the busy man who has not beon able to get away for the month's ' spell ' which falls to the lot of the more fortunate, feels faggod and jaded. But he has to keep pinned to his work, and pray to be appointed a Fisheries Commissioner or President of the Lands Court, or something else nice and soft. Here are two pars calculated to cheer the tired, holidayless citizen and refresh him with a reflected refreshment as he follows in fancy the trips of the fortunate ones mentioned: — (1.) ' By the Melbourne express on Tuesday Mr. Frank Farnell, M.P. (president.), and Mr. Lindsay G. Thompson, J. P., member of the Eoyal Commission on Fisheries, with their secretary, Mr. Walter D. White, left Sydney for Victoria on a visit of inspec tion to the different fishing centres in that colony. From Melbourne the Commission will proceed to Tasmania, for the purpose of gaining the latest information regarding fish acclimatisation as carried on at New Norfolk and o...
OUR SERIAL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
OUR SERIAL STORY. To-day we commence a first-rate serial story, entitled, The North Shore Mys tery.' by Herb. Fletch. This is no story of the penny dreadful class, such as is to be found in some of the Australian dailies, but a work of literary excellence. At the same time, it is thoroughly sensational in a legitimate style, and the interest is not only maintained until the end, but in creases in each chapter. ' The North Shore Mystery ' becomes a greater mystery as the story advances, and is not solved until the close. It is of fascinating in terest, there are many exciting situations, some entertaining comedy work (all the more palatable from the fact that it is not strained), and strong and clever charac terisation. The scenes are laid in and about the metropolis and Windsor. The characters include a beautiful woman, the star of the story; her husband (a book maker), who is murdered ; a firm of mer chants ; a professor of phrenology ; a selector ; a boarding-housekeeper ; a Wind ...
NOTES AND COMMENTS. THE NEW COMMERCIAL POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. THE NEW COMMERCIAL POLICY. The remarks of the Premier at the Albion Park Show in reference to the necessity for conserving country interests and tbe development of our internal resources simply amount to a truism which everyone acknowledges, but which it seems extremely difficult to carry into effect. So far as the j duties of the Agent-General are concerned, it may be very true that we could dispense with some of the diplomacy as well as some of the dignity which seem inseparable from that office, providing greater attention were paid to promoting the practical interests of the colony. In this connection, however, the. question naturally arises -whether it is possible to put new wine into old bottles, and whether the occupant of this office should not be brought mora into touch with the changing circumstances of the colony than is possible when' it is made virtually a permanent post. It may be undeniable that in many respects Now South Wales has been served well...

MUNICIPAL POLLING BOOTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
MUNICIPAL POLLING BOOTHS. Ik view of tbe approaching municipal elec tions the various suburbnn councils are much exercised in thoir minds as to the advisableness of establishing polling booths in tbe city for the convenience of those ratepayers whose businesses neccsBitato their presence in the city ou the day of election. The question came up for consideration at tho last meeting ot the JSorttisyaney (jonncii, wnoii iirgunwins, both for and against tho proposed booths, were varied and abundant. A number of the aldermen present were very_ outspoken in condemnation of what was considered unneces sary expense in providing conveniences for those ratopayers who were too indolent to vote in their own territory. The honor of the ratepayers was at a low ebb in the estimation of ono irate aldornian, who averred that the establishment of such a booth ^in tlie city would be ' a bed of corruption,' and largely availed of b3' ratepayers for tho purpose of double voting. The same speaker declare...
