LATEST CABLEGRAMS. London, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
LATEST CABLEGRAMS. [Fitoic the Press Telegraph Association.! London, Thursdav. Ifc is believed that the report of the massacre of fifteen members of the Bechuanaland Border police beyond Inyati, north-east of Buluwayo, has been confounded with reports as to the fate of Captain Wilson's party. In the House of Commons this evening, Mr. W. i'. tlyies, M.P. for Shipley Division of the West Riding, Yorkshire, urged the Government that it should endeavour to bring about a mutual disarm ing in Europe prior to adding to the navy. Mr. Gladstone, in reply, admitted the importance of the subject, but expressed a doubt if it would be any use to move in that direction at present. The Foreign Office has instructed British Consuls abroad to discourage immigration to England. This step has been taken with a view of putting a stop to alien pauper immigration. London, Friday.

Late Commercial News. Sydney, Thursday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
Late Commercial News. Sydney, Thursday evening:. In the Stock and Share market there was little or no improvement in business. Not much is expected to be done in bank stock until after the meetings to be held. The dividends will produce a little money, and may impart a degree of life which is at present wanting. Commercial Bank of Sydney B shares were sold at 82-, and Australian Joint Stock at 43s 6d. Other banks were neglected, the quotations being without material alteration. Steam and insurance were quoted about the same aa . yesterday. Australian Gaslight were again dealt in at previous quotation. Trustee stocks were rather weaker; otherwise quotations were substantially as before. The following sales were reported at the Sydney Stock Exchange at noon to-day : — Commercial Banking Company of Sydney B 8^, and Australian Gas 12; and at four o'clock— A. J.S. Bank 43s 6i, and Australian Gas 12. Few transactions of moment came under notice in the import market to-day, though there wa...
Pastoral News, Stock Movements, and Markets. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
Pastoral News, Stock Move ments, and Markets. Dubbo Stock Report. — The weather during the week has been somewhat changeable. It has been stormy and looking like rain, but very little has fallen. We have had a few showers, but we could do with more. The country around looks dry, and a good downpour woula not only cause a shoot but effectually insure against bush fires. Stock move ments are not many. The state of the markets is not sufficiently attractive to cause owners to send in. In a week or two rat sheep will, however, be sent away from many properties.— Dispatch Jan. 12.

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
ITEMS OP INTEREST. [Original and Selected.'! A well-known Sydney society lady made a novel departure lwst week ia the way of social entertain ment in the shape of a bathing party for both sexes at the Bronte Baths. A number of well-known 6ociety ladies and gentlemen were present, and en joyed the novol situation immensely. The swim ming party dispor ted themselves in their picturesque costumes under the light of the moon, which was more becoming than the garish light of day, which would be liable to show up possible defects in com plexion or figure, after a dip 'in the briny.' It is said that several other ladies intend to organise similar parties of this kind, for which our climate is so suitable. The Agricultural Department has received several fine samples of fruit grown on the State Farm at Kichmond. The samples, which include principally peaches and nectarines, are the product of very young trees. They all exhibit a healthy appearance, and while of a size much larger than is or...
