Mr. Michael Davitt. HIS ABRIVAL. ENTHUSIASTIC EECEPTION. Mr. Michael Davitt arrived in Sydney on Saturday afternoon. When he stepped out of the suburban train arriv ing at Bedfern at ten minutes to 8 o'clock, he looked down from the plat form nearest George-street upon a crowd of at least 10,000 people, and must have seen at a glance that it tapered away far into the distance in the order of a rather long and gorgeous procession.

ACTIONS VERSUS WORDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895

ACTIONS VEB8US WOBDS. The candidates who so patriotically rush now to the front in opposition to Ministers and Government supporters will render an ill turn to the country just in proportion to their success at tiie poll. Nothing will do more to play into the hands of the Council than to throw out a Government supporter or a Minister. The circumstances of tbe election are unique. By the patriotic aotion of the Government the people at fast are brought fairly snd squarely faoe to face.' with the simple issue — Are we to have government by the people for tbe general welfare or by the Upper House for the benefit of the wealthy monopolists? Unless those gentlemen who have come out in oppo sition to Ministers and Government members retire before nomination day they will brand themselves as enemies of the people. It will be useless for them to plead the democratic nature of their addresses. ' Actions speak louder I than words.' 15 YEABS SEBVICE OF ? . If Mr. Barton could point to one of b...

Then, no matter how many candidates went to tbe poll no one could get into parlia ment contrary to the will of the majority of the people. No doubt if the Government declares its intention of passing the contingent vote, it will have a good effect in inducing super fluous candidates to retire.

THE LATE FATALITY AT ALUBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895

THE LATE FATALITY AT AUBUBN. A sad incident was that at Auburn, resulting in the death of little Eliza Butters on Wednesday week. The girl was playing near the remnants of a smouldering fire, when her dress caught fire ; and a Tew moments she was burned almost beyond recognition. A neigh bour had, to make access easy to his house, cleared off some sorub; and, after the bushes had been burned, the deceased and others went over to the smoking sshes and commenoed to play with them. Hence the accident. Sad as the affair is, it would be stretching the idea of responsibility tax) far, to place blame on the man who burned off the Bcrub. It is a pity a warning was not given against children playing about the dangerous place ; but that surely is the utmost that can be said in that con nection. ?

Granville Hospital Pond. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 13 July 1895

Granville Hospital Fund. There is a general feeling among representative men of Granville that it is quite time definite steps were taken to Bettle the Granville Hospital question. There is a sum of £800 in the bank to the credit of the trustees (Messrs. Scarborough and Gee), and on this a subsidy is claimable — making £600 in all. The latest proposal is that this should be unconditionally paid over to the Parramatta and Auburn Institutions — two-thirds to the former and one-third to the latter. But it is a pity that the better course of starting (in however a humble a way) a Gran ville hospital could not be given effect to.
