ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
ECHOES OP SPORT. This is essentially a Scotch story. The other evening I was accosted by a genial acquaintance whom many of my readers will recognise when I dub him ' Porridge.' ' I have something to tell you,' said he, airily. ' Proceed !' I replied; in my usual dignified manner. ' Do you know the Burns's ?' ennuired my friend. ' Is it the poet's family ?' queried I, anxious to show my literary acquirements. Then a far-away look waltzed into ' Porridge's' eyes, as he answered in a voice that had a dilution of the bag-pipes in ifc ' Well, since I heard of Hardface I am inclined to think that some of the progenitors of Burns of Sedgfield must at least have known the immortal Bobby.' Porridge always calls the talented ploughman ' the im mortal Bobby' regardless of the fact that he has been defunct for a day or two. ' Well, what about Hardface, anyhow ?' I ventured to remark, and then my reminiscent friend did this tale unfold . Therti were races atMt. Thorley, a little settlement just...
The Stolen Diamonds. CHAPTER XI. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
The Stolen Diamonds. CHAPTER XL I am- once more at home, and, as Mrs. Dyson suggested, Phcebe has the 'are of baby, while Pauline divides her time between Valerie and me ; jnst now, however, Valerie has most claim upon her, for she is extremely weak ; and is also, I think, more ill-tempered and disagreeable than ever. Yet I am happy, and though it is November, and (?here are no more lovers' walks for' Humphrey and me out of doors, where I am he is usually to be found. I haunt his smoking-den, and he my morning-room — that is, when he is not out limiting, or seeing to his tenants— often though we are to be found together worshipping at our common house hold shrine, the nursery, and baby's cot. Every body worships baby, I think : everybody save Valerie. To-day we are all three in the drawing- rooir, for my stepdaughter has come downstairs early, and I do not like her to be lonely. Poor child, she has a heavy burden to bear, for Humphrey has been obliged to tell her how matters stand b...

Great Fire at Broken Hill. Broken Hill, Thursday. Shortly before 11 o clock to-night a violent ring ing of the firebell, followed by a continuous blowing of the mine whistles, made it apparent that a fire had broken out in Broken Hill, and tha flames which lit up the heavenB indicated that the con flagation was an extensive one, and considerably out of the ordinary.

LABOUR A NECESSITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
LABOUR A NECESSITY. Sir, — It is a recognised axiom ' that labour is a commodity which the civilised world cannot dis pense with. Without it there can be no progress, no prosperity, no well-being. But capital is as necessary as labour. The man who commences life with only skill and labour as his stock-in-trade should look up to the capitalist who provides the means of utilising that skill and labour, and anticipate the day when he may also become a capitalist, if only on a limited scale, and thus secure to himself the wages of his labour and the profits on his capital. This is far more practical than the task of listening to those who delight in drawing for the working man a doleful, if not a hopeless future, representing capital as the enemy of labour. What, in nine cases out of ten, could the labourer do if there were no machinery, no mechanical appliances ? These are provided by capital. It is so with the pastoral industry. If there were no capitalists in the capacity of pas tora...
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 12 January 1894
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. Sir, — The above subject has given me much thought, as to the laws and dispensations which we find in the Bible and which, have been given for our guidance. Why should some of the old dis pensations fall into diause, while others (for in stance hanging for murder, &c.) be still held in use. Should man be deputed to take the ., life of his fellow creatures; and as I con sider it in cold blood deliberately. Surely a Christ-like people cannot accept such a law. Is capital punishment a deterrent? Tha police records and the statistics of almost every nation will Bhow that it is not. I think the thoughts and feelings of good men and women should be brought to bear in having this revolting law 'amended in these days of enlightenment and progression. We have legislators able enough to plan schemes and to formulate lawe of stupendous dimensions for the benefit and governance of mankind. Why then could there not be something devised with dexterity and wisdom to rev...
