Mr. W. _ Somers occupied the chair. . * Mr. Price, who was well re ceived, on rising to address the meeting, stated that under the Redristribution of Seats Act 'Nelson's Plains had been tacked on to the Gloucester electorate. He had unsuccessfully con tested two elections in that electorate, but in compliance with a promise made to his friends on the last occasion, and also from the fact that he had received numerously-signed re quisitions to again offer himself, he was again in the field to seek their support.

An Interesting Blue Book. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 9 February 1894

An Interesting Blue v Book. It has been said by someone that the bost way to decently bury a thing is to let the Government print it; and when one considers the pilot) of blue bootB that steadily accumulate from Government printing presses, each ad ditional pamphlet making it less likely that the former ones will be read, we cannot help agreeing that in the sar castic utterance there is a grain and something more of truth. It is inter esting and refreshing to turn from the strife of political parties and the war of words, which too often signifies very little, tothiB modest blue, book of 67 pages which contains an exhaustive account of -the endeavor now being made to establish the silk industry in the colony.

Particulars to hand at present aro meagre, but it is stated that one officer of the French troops and five of the British were killed.

The Gates of Morning. Before the gates of morning A singer, sweet and strong, Poured out in measured cadence A tender, soulful song. And many weary toilers - 'Mid labour's clash and clang, Took hea.'t, and hope, and courage, - From the message which she Bang; A message full of promise Of better thingB to come. The promise of a morning - When hate, and greed, and rum, Shall have no place or standing, Shall have no right to be Betwixt the gates of morning And tbe purple sundown sea. Not they alone who labour In Bunpy field or smart, But.tliey whose brains are -wedded To busy hand and heart, Havo heard tbe singer's message, Have beard ber songs divine, Haye felt'her inspiration, - And bow tbem at her shrine.
