Is the Sun Shooting at Us? [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

Is the Sun Shooting at Us ? Every year additional proof is obtained of the sun's influence in producing magnetic storms and displays of the aurora borealis on the earth. The solar disturbances whose energy is thus felt nearly ninety-three million miles away are usually accom panied by conspicuous spots on the sun. But it is still a question whether the earth feels the disturb ance when the spots are near the meridian of the sun, as Been from the earth, or when they are just coming around the sun's eastern edge. On the supposition that it is when they are on the meridian that the solar disturbances make their power felt by the earth, M. Bicco has shown that the velocity with which the solar influence travels toward our planet is not much more than six hundred miles a second, or less than one three hundredth of the velocity of light. But the most recent experiments have shown that electric waves travel with practically the same speed aB the un dulations of light. It would seem to foll...

Public Works Committee. A meeting or the Public Works Committee was held yesterday (gays the Herald) under the presi dency of Mr. Jacob Garrard, M.L.A., when the re port to the Legislative Assembly on the proposed railway from Narrabri to Moree, and also the Clgllllll gCUCial IDpVlB \JL UUC WU11U1VUCC IA/ IIUD Governor were considered. It is necessary for the committee before the commencement of every session to send in a general report bo tbe Governor ; but this year the report is only a short one, as the only subject dealt with is the Moree Railway.

This is the first instance in which any provision as ...

How the Minister was Paid. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

How the Minister was Paid The Eev. Joseph Smith had charge of the Cross Creek and Buffalo churches in Washington County, Pennsylvania, in 1790, and from that time onward until his death in 1800. His salary was small— too small to support himself and family ; so he bought a iarzn Oil ureuifc, CAjJuuuiug lu pajr lur iu niuu i/uo salary promised by his people. Time rolled on until three years' salary was due. The people wanted to pay their minister, but how could they ? Wheat was abundant, but there was no market — it would not bring over a dime a bushel. Even suit had to be brought across the mountains on pack horses, and one bushel o£ it would coBt twenty-one bushels of wheat. At last there came a day when the minister muBt be paid, or lose his farm, for the mortgage was overdue. Meetings were called to consider the matter, but nothing came of them until Mr. More, who had the only mill in the settlement, said that if the people would furnish boat, barrels and wheat, he would grind th...

White Labour in Queensland Canefields. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

White Labour in Queensland Canenelds. In the Courier of the 4th instant a leading articl» appeared on tho above subject, suggested by a letter in the same isaue from Mr. J. V. Chataway, one of the editors of the \Sugar Journal. The Courier puts what now appears to be the real issue in these terms : — 'inr. unacaway uayu uu.au vua «.*-- liability of labour on a sugar plantation is more important than its cheapness. We are with him there. So important is it, that we should be ex ceedingly sorry to see coloured labour prohibited while there is any danger of sugar-growers being placed in the position which has been experienced by coal-mine owners and squatters and shipowners. We have seen deliberate attempts in Australasia to paralyse all industry. A great deal of the suffer ing prevalent to-day is the result of vindictive aggressions of labour upon capital. The most serious question about white labour on sugar plantations is not climate or wages, but whether or not white labour would t...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

LOCAL NEWS. Woeds op Commendation.— We have to thank many of our friends who by word or writing have approved the new departure taken by the pro prietary in issuing the Mercury as a daily news paper. One of the most pleasant of these tokens of approval appears in the Clarence and Richmond Em-miner of Jannarv 0. as follows :— The first num ber of the new departure well sustains the credit or the Mercury in every respect, and speaks volumes for the desire of the proprietors to beep pace with the progress of the important district of which Maitland is the centre. The spirit of enterprise which has maintained the Mercury in the position of the leading paper of the colony outside of the metropolis, is evidently intended to be sus tained in its future career. We congratulate our friends on this forward 6tep, and trust that, com mercially, it will — as it deserves — exceed their anticipations.

A Sensational Burglary. Melbourne, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

A Sensational Burglary. Melbourne, Friday. A sensational burglary under arms occurred early this morning at the pawnshop of Michael Crawcour, Nelson-place, Williamsfcown. Soon after 8 a.m. (says the Herald) Crawcour was roused by electric alarm bells ringing in his bedroom, indi cating that some person had effected an entrance to the shor-. Going downstairs he heard men moving about in the shop, which is situated in front of the dining-room. The dining-room opens into the yard through two windows. Crawcour posted himself on one of these windowB, and called out, ' Come out of that, I'm ready for you.' The reply was a revolver shot which carried away a portion of the lobe of his right ear. He called out again, ' Come on, I'm not afraid of you,' and a second shot passed through his whiskers. Cronohing down by the wall he waited, cocking his own revolver, for the burglar to come out. As the fcurglar sprang out through the window Crawcour aimed at him and pulled the trigger, but tho revo...

The Stolen Diamonds. CHAPTER XL— (Continued.)

It was during his ?temporary ahsence on business that she carried her threat into execution ; though she was sorry enough three days after, when, on her return ing home, she found he had been there before her; and gone away again, merely leaving her a letter of farewell and a sum of money, so that she should not be destitute, until some arrangements should ?foe made for the future, which each would live apart in accordance with his vow. That she loved him none could deny ; for even to me she reproached her siBter bi...

ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

ECHOES OF SPORT. The Newcastle racecourse presents a busy spec tacle now every morning, and several additions have been made to the local strings of horses. Among the latest arrivals aro Proctor, Plot, Butcher Boy, and Everistas from Morpefch, and the hand some Annadour and more than useful Violet from (jmnncu. The speedy Victorian racehorse Rapid Fire has been re-named Fusee. He will be hard to blow out now. A pretty fair story is told of Jimmy Jordan, a big, hurley, genial Newcastle penciller. Jimmy is a ' Geordie,' and it is not so many years ago, either since he bid farewell to his native land. When he arrived in the coaly city he was taken in hand by another knight of the volume, Bob Law rence, who as a special treat took Jimmy out wallaby shooting, the Englishman never having seen that specially destructive Australian product. The sportsmen soon got among the marsupials, and Lawrence let blaze at a fine fellow as he darted past. Jimmy's attention had been diverted by his unusu...

DISTRICT NEWS. GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [Fkom our Correspondents.] GRETA. Miners. — A meeting of the Greta lodge was held on Friday, Mr. Patrick presiding, the business being to hear the delegates' report of the previous day's board meeting and transact other necessary business. The minutes having been read and approved, the principal attention centered on Mr. Connolly's report and much heated talk arose over that part of it wherein the Greta men are to be enrolled for strike pay. The board has decided to recommend that only those miners who remained here during the idle times, and aro clear on the books of the local lodge should get any strike pay, and a motion to that effect was carried by the delegates and will go the rounds of tho district for the approval or otherwise of the miners. This will have the effect if carried of cutting about 100 or 120 men off the funds, and many here con sider this very unfair. These men left here during the idle time to search for work in other places, and they only came b...

To be Sure. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 13 January 1894

To 'be Sure. Prose is the enemy of poetry, and always has been. A Quaker who had a young and pretty daughter was awakened one night by some one singing under his window. A certain young' gentleman, it appeared, had mistaken the father's window for the daughter's Several airs were sun g, and finally theserenader struck iato ' Home, sweet Home.' The old gentle man got out of bed and raised the window. ' Young man,' said he, ' if thou hast a home, as thou sayest, why don't thee go home ?' A Bombay firm have conceived the ingeniriH idea of painting advertisements on the panels of victorias plying for hire. Some of these novel vehicles of advertising are already on the streets of Bombay. It remains, of course, to be seen whether the public who call a victoria will choose an advertising conveyance. If the innovation succeeds, the Bombay Qazetto thinks there iB no reauon why it should not be applied to private carriages also. ?
