MODEST MR. SLEATH. He Has Been Talking Tall at Broken Hill ABOUT 'PAEKES' AND 'DIBBS.' What They Said to Aim and He to Them. FUNNY EXTRACTS FROM AN INTERVIEW. Mr. Sleath, member for Wilcannia, and formerly a strike leader, has been inter viewed at Broken Hill, and the result furnishes some amusing reading. He re counts how he lorded it over ' Parkes ' and ' Dibbs,' and how he 'beat tho Speaker.' Here are some extracts : — 'The game of politics,' he said, 'is, generally speaking, a swindle. My ex perience enables me to say this without fear of contradiction. The blame, however, lies at the doors of the electors, who, through blindness to their own interests, allow men to be returned to Parliament whose sole object in getting there is to plunder. ' I met some distinguished friends of mine in the House. One of the first mem bers to WELCOME HE j was Sir Henry Parkes. Parices came up to me in the lobby and said, ' How do you do, Mr. Sleath ?' with great fervor. There were fifty or sixty ...

THE POTT'S HILL RESERVIOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
THE POTT'S HILL MSEItVIOft. A coseespondent writes to point out the empty condition of the Pott's Hill reservoir, which, he considers, endangers the city water supply. He asserts that there has been no wator in tho reservoir for about four months, and that this is owing to the faot that a sug gestion by the contractor was ignored, the consequence being that tho water had to bo turned off and the dam emptied in order to carry out repairs, on which men are now en gaged at work in double shifts.
SCARED FROM OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
SCARED FROM OFFICE. It is all vory well for outsiders to call Casimir Perier a coward for resigning the position of President of the French Ea public ; but it may be safely ventured that few of those who so stigmatise him would care to fill the position. Casimir Perier's wife is possibly responsible for his retire ment. She has been terribly nervous ever since he accepted office, and until a sec retary was engaged to specially attend to her correspondence, was daily terrified through the post by threats from Anar chists and others a3 to what they would do with her husband if they got the chance. Casimir Perier is as brave as the bravest; but every man has a right to consider tho welfare of his family ; and if his wife is being slowly driven into insanity by his enemies — or the enemies of the position which he occupies — one can hardly blame him for resigning, although one may regret the necessity. The new President, M. Felix Faure, appears to be a solid man, and possessed of suffic...
BEWARE OF TYPHOID. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
BEWARE OF TYPHOID. The typhoid epidemic that is raging (in a small way, thank goodness) in some of the suburbs means nothing more nor less than dirt, and foul drains and smells, and accu mulated nastiness. There is aa yet nothing to raise a scare about. Typhoid has often been more prevalent in Sydnoy than at present, though this is undoubtedly the record year since the new sewerage scheme has been m working order. Still, the weather has been decidedly out of the common, and favorable to the incubation of disease, and of course the three first months of the year are well-known ' typhoid months.' . It is worthy of marked notice that the suburbs whose system of drainage is most complete and effective have been most free from the disease ; and the object lesson of the recrudescence of this fever is, briefly — if you wish for health prepare for sickness. To those in the proximity of the centres of infection, and to those in districts still happily free from the disease, we have but one a...
MR. EDDY'S SUCCESSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
MR. EDDY'S SUCCESSOR. As a good deal of anxiety has been mani fested regarding the appointment of a successor to Mr. E. M. G. Eddy, the Chief Commissioner of Eailways, it may be pointed out that that gentleman's term of office will not expire till October next, although it is understood that ho will quit the colony on leave of absence some timo before that date. It should, how ever, be borno in mind that in 1S91 Mr. Eddy was also absent from the colony for some four months, during which period he retained his position ns Chief Commissioner, and that no difficulty arose in carrying on the railway system during his absence; so that there does not ap pear to be any immediate urgency in appointing a successor.
THE DEVELOPMENT OF MINING. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
THE DEVELOPMENT OF MINING. The deputation representing the mining interest which waited upon the Minister for Mines on Wednesday served to remind us that in the midst of the new enthusiasm for the development of agriculture and rural produce there is still a vast and im portant industry which is deserving of the utmost encouragement which the Govern ment cau extend. No doubt the mining industry has had assistance in the past in the shapo of the prospecting vote, and some of the results have been of a nature to show the wisdom of the help thus given in developing our mineral resources. But as pointed out by tho deputation, there are other directions in which help can bo fairly claimed, aud which may be accorded without detriment to the other great interests of the colony. Tho survey of auriferous districts, and the preparation of geological maps showing the results of such surveys, would undoubtedly assist the minor and the mining investor in selecting localities for prospecting oper...
A RATEPAYER'S GRIEVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
A RATEPAYER'S GRIEVANCE. 'Eatebatek' complains of the method adopted by some councils of appointing valuers, and objects to council clerks beimr employed instead of two sworn valuators. One correspondent thinks that more con sideration should bo shown the small free holders in assessing property for municipal purposes, aud alBO complains of the manner in which the water rate presses upon the owners of small properties who do not use the water, and have gone to considerable expense in providing tanks.

Wealth of Nations Dunn considers thai the Nitrate King got too good a bargain wheii he purchased that mine for .£140,000. There is now but little doubt that Mr. M'Lachlan, Secretary for Eailways, will be appointed a Commissioner when Mr. Eddy leaves us. Mrs. E. B.

THE SECRET OF BEING A SUCCESSFUL SPORTSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 20 January 1895
THE SECRET OF BEING A SUCCESSFUL SPORTSMAN. 'We have been looking over tho list of win ners on the racecourse, on the cricket field, End at all sports during tho holidays, and are alstonisbed to find that all tho successful men are smokers. Still you hear it said that smoking is injurious, aud weakens tho nerves, ami those who so think are quite correct, to a certain extent. There is no doubt that heavy pmoking o£ tobacco containing deleterious compounds 'would weaken the nerves of a I giant, but after consultation with, a few of the gentlemen mentioned abovo, we find that almost without an exception they are lovers of the one cigar of the age, viz., Frossard's Cavour Cigars, and these being mild and fragrant, are a pleasure to smoke. Thoy have all the pleasant flavor of the oxcellent loaj from which they aro prepared, without the unpleasant taste of the nicotine, which having lx'i n extracted in vacuo _ leaves the smokor all the essential aromatic flavor of tho tobacco.
