A DISGUSTED AUDIENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 3 January 1896
A DiSQUSTED AUDIENCE. A Christmas audience is not usually exacting. The spirit of toleration which permits the cooks of mountains of indi gestible plum pudding to go free extend* to m iBt of the festival amusements. But there ara limits even to the elastic good temper of a Boxing night crowd, and on Boxing night the promoters of an enter tainment at St. George's Hall, Melbourne, were painfully made aware of the fact. The hall had been empty since the reign of the Empire Company, hut the excellent situation was not overlooked by an enter pri -ing manager, who reckoned upon an overflow of the Theatre Royal pantomine, and calculated also that the promenaders of BouTke-street might be drawn by an at tractive bill. He took the hall for one night only and prepared a surprise. The Princess's Theatre bad declared for a novelty and had travelled to Japan for a subject. The manager of St. George's Hall was more patriotic. He stuck to Great Britain, butalao achieved a novelty. He presenied a '...
THE NEW TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 3 January 1896
THE HEr TAXATION. ? ? : : .;??» — — — — ?? . A writer in the Dubbo Dispatch ha3 ths following l— Speaking about the Land Tax to a large owner—one of the most success ful ipf our colonists— - who has been recently on a visit to Dubbo, he Said that as the workingiiian wanted the tax it was only fair he should pay for it. ' A3 for myself,' said he, ' when I go home I'll call all my hands together, tell them that as the new taxation was a fresh charge which must be met out of profits, it would be necessary in order to make ends meet to reduce wages. I'll tell them,' added he, 'that they must all submit to a reduction of 10 percent.' And he evidently means what he said. At Daniliquin the landowners are following out the- idea. Here is what a ' man, signing himself ' W. Smith,' writes from that town to a Sydney daily : — 'I want to inform you of the effect of the land tax and income tax on the workingnian in this district: I have been employed on one of the big estates here for two years....
PROTECTION IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Albury Banner and Wodonga Express — 3 January 1896
PROTECTION 1^ ENGLAND. The Times reports^ a meeting of the Darlington Chamber of Agriculture to dia«. cuss the agricultural situation. The Mar quis of Londonderry presided. Mr. James Lowther, M.P., refeiring to the action of the Central Chamber of Agriculture in asking; the Royal Commission to expedite its report, said that the Commission was constituted in a singularly unfair-manner. The great mass of those engaged in agri culture entertained a very decided convic tion that the fiscal system required altering in a protectionist sense, and it was a public scandal that not a single member of the Commission shared those views.- Their report, whenever it came; was a matter which need not concern any agriculturist in any material way. The mere tiukering with questions of rates and railway charges would amount to uncommonly little, and he did not wish to be associated with the mistaken policy cf the Central Chamber. The la'e Eobert Chambers, in writing about the royal burgh of Tain, in K...

A CHARTERED COMPANY FORMING. London, December 29. , A new and startling development has taken place in the Anglo- American situa tion, and is exrected to have an important result on the future conduct of the negoti ations.

A GIRL'S IDEA OF GROWN-UPS. . * ... lv A little girl was asked to writedown her impressions of grown-up persons. Her' composition ran as follows :— 'In the first place they are big-gerj. then, some ot them don't like sweets ; then , they don't climb up trees j then, they are not so fond of donkey rides, because there are other things they like better. They, write books and go to meetings,,,but they won't let their children go with them, be^ cause they are ia the way. Sometimes they make children do what isn't right; they don't like us to ride on donkeys be cause they are afraid of being kicked j but children don't mind a bit, on the contrary, they think it rare fun. They are much older ; some of them twice as old as others. You've got to be twenty-one before you are grown-up, and thea you remain grown-up.
