ELECTORAL REFORM. (To the Editor of the Globe.) [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 5 January 1886
ELECTORAL REFORM. (To the Editor of the Globe.) Sir,-I have read with much interest and gratiflcation'your report of the Elec 'tions and Qualifications Committee, as I "had approached the subject in a small tract which I prepared for the Trades and iLabour Congress held in the Town Hall on October 6, 1885, and during the. week. 'There is another point in" the conduct' of elections at present which I do not under 'stand, but which may possibly be capable of explanation. I was employed on the committee of one of the.members of the last general election for South Sydney, and some of the intel ligent electors, when they came into the committee room, stated thait they had four S'votes, and that they should give one vote to leach of the four :candidates. Now, I have read a very considerable' amount of ' discussion upon dual-voting, butthis quad ruple system of voting poses and perplexes 'me. I cannot yet 'qute enter into the 'feelings of British pride, honour, and exnultation which must f...
WHY IS IT THUS? (To the Editor of the Globe.) [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 5 January 1886
WHY IS IT THUS? (To; th1o Editor of the Globo.) Sir,-It has caused me considerable sur .prise for some time to find .the reason why the Globe has not been allotted its proper position among the files of newspapers for reference, and on the reading stand in the School of Arts reading room. According to my idea upon the matter, the news paper is at the least entitled to the cus tomary courtesy of commercial enter prises of a similarly important nature, involving the employment of many thou sands of pounds capital, and of a very large number of intelligent men who have their wives and families to maintain in respectability. The same remarks apply also to the Sunday Times. I cannmiotrefrain from expressing a hope that upon the attention of members being called to this matter'that the oversight will be at once remedied,-I am, lyoure, in .. ..: .... A MEMBER. Jianiary 5

AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 5 January 1886
AMUSEMENTS.?. "Cinderella" continues to be the fa vourite pantomime of the Christmas and New Year season. "Mother Goose" at the Olympic also appears.tq be held in high favor, as its run so far' has been most successful, and there is little indi catioh-of a falling off in the number who see it nightly. "Across the Continent" at the New Opera House has been drawing well, and'it is now very evident that those who direct the fortunes of the theatre have made a wise selection for the holiday season, so far at least as their pockets are concerned. The Federal Minstrels have the same programme, and there appears to be little probability of Mr. HisEocks being induced to alter it to any great extent for some time to come. "King Cockatoo" at the Alhambra is also having a most successful run. wOODYEAR'S CIROUS.. The management of Woodyear's Circus should have pleasant recollections of their present visit to Sydney.

THE LONG-GANNON SQUABBLE. To the Editor of the Globe. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 5 January 1886
THE LONG-GANNON SQUABBLE. To the Editor of the Globe.. Sir,-In the last issue of the Sunday Times you refer in an editorial to the above altercation between Mr. W. Gannon and Mr. W. Long, and. in my humble opinion your remarks deserve the hightest commendation from all who take an interest in sporting. That the disturbance did occur there is no doubt, and that it. has been " satis factorily" settled between -::the two parties is a fact; but what about the puiblic who patronise the sport and expect the rulers to do that which is just and right ?P A contemporary says that "it was settled in a common-sense way, and indeed the only way in which it could-properly be ended." From that journal's point of view, and likewise froni the two parties con cerned, that may be true, for had the matter been thoroughly sifted perhaps' neither of them would be so well contented as they are now that the public are not. acquainted with all the facts. Mr. Long, mn the heat of temper, thought fit to accus...

"The diledtion for the extraordinary vacancy in the Borough Council was hold to-day, and resulted in the election of Mr. FPrank Beames.

A STRIKE OF SUNNY CORNER MINERS. [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 5 January 1886
A STRIKE OF' SUNNY CORNER MINERS. A strike has taken place at the Sunny Corner Mine. On Saturday morning, the miners, one and all, resolved to form a union; the fact was telegraphed all over the country, and in eight minutes the telegram that the Sunny Corner miners were on strike was placed on the boards of. the Lithgow Mercury, and in fifteen: minutes huge placards were issued from the Silver Press and placarded abouttown. At 8 p.m. Weinert's Hall was crammed, three to four hundred miners were uuani mous in the belief .that their rights were infringed by being compelled to work from Saturday until 12 p.m., whereas the hours before was 10 p.m. Tlley also think the mine dangerous. But the fact is, they care little how things go, and for this the Government upset price of land is. in a great measure to. blame. My wogds are coming true. A short time ago I said the if the upset price was inforced a revolution would take place, as the miners and poor storekeepers could or would not pay ...
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. (To the Editor of the Globe.) [Newspaper Article] — Globe — 5 January 1886
THE WHARF LABOURERS' STRIKE. (To the Editor of the Globe.) Sir,-Now that the Globe, your excellent paper, is circulated in Parramatta, I get it and read it every evening. I am interested in the subject of strikes and noticed in your issue of the 1st Janu ary that in referring to the Melbourne wharf labourers' strike, whilst giving sym pathy to the labourers, you say, "the pub lic must pay all charges in the long run." May I venture to express a different opinion P that which I think is held by meect labourers. The conBumer (the public) in the long run pays all the cost of raising and distributing property. Wharf labour ers are amongst the distributors, and if their wages are raised, the necessary ad jur?ment to meet the extra cost will take place before the property has reached the consrmor, unless the cost of distribution in all its branches has been already re duced to a minimum. Labourers holdthat they do not get their fair share of the cost paid by the consumer at the present pr...

He was also delighted with the bouquet. Seating himself in the chair old Penne bunker rocked himself backwards and for wards energetically, smelling the bouquet and smiling, at the widow, who wore a g...
