SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894

SINGLETON. Presentation.— In these days of strikes and disturbances between labour and capital it is quite refreshing to note that the miners at Eix Creek have always upheld the dignity of labour and its importance to advance the prosperity of the colony in a manner that is most exemplary. At Rix Creek there has never been a strike, and the utmost good feeling has always, existed between the pro prietors and the miners. This was made manifest in a most pleasing manner on Thursday evening last, when Mr. William Longworth, who has been manager for the Singleton Coal Company for a number of years, received a cordial send off on the eve of his departure for Cobar, where Mr. Long worth will take charge of a copper mine. Mr. Longworth was entertained at a social gathering in the Eix Creek Public Hall, when about 50 per sons partook of light refreshments. Mr. Peel, one of the employes, presented Mr. Longworth with a nice addreBs and a valuable present in the shape of a useful microscope. M...

London Sales of Colonial Wool. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894

London Sales of Colonial Wool. Messrs. Jacomb, Son, and Co. report from 61, Moorgate-Btreet, Dec. 6 : — The concluding series of auctions of colonial, wool, for this year, commenced here on the 28th ult., and, weather permitting, will conclude on the 15th inafc. Half the net available stock has now passed the hammer, and about 95 per cent, of that has been disposed of, leading to the hope that 1893 will leave but little legacy of old stock to its successor. There has been a very large attendance here, from all parts, throughout ; competition has been slightly fitful and irregular, but our Septem ber-October currency is well maintained, on tbe average, for all good, medium merino wools with any class and quality; very burry and seedy, lower conditioned greasy, such (of which there is a large proportionate supply this season) rule five to ten per cent, below our October values. There is an active inquiry for the superior grades of ' super' merino lambs', with little or none of such of...

Mr. Lecky and the Scotch. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894

Mr. Lecky and the Scotch. The secretary of the Scottish Home Bale Associa tion has written a letter to the Prince of Wales on the subject of the lecture recently delivered by Mr. Lecky at the Imperial Institute, when his Eoyal Highness presided. It is complained that tke lecture simply bristled with insults to Scotland, the lecturer having thoroughly igBored that country and spoken of the British Empire as the ' sole possession of England/' and of the colonies as having been ' built up by Englishmen.' This language, says the secretary, has given the greatest offence in Scotland. Sir Francis Knollys, replying on behalf of the Prince, says -. — ' I am desired by the Princa to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of November 24th, and to inform you in reply that he feels persuaded that Mr. Lecky had no intention in the lecture which he delivered at the Imperial Institute of casting any reflection on Scotland or purposely of ignoring the great services which the inhabitants of that co...

Proposed Alterations in the Train Service. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894

Proposed Alterations in the Train Service. Mr. Mathieson, Chief Commissioner for Queens land Eailways, has had another interview with Mr* Kidd regarding the question of an alteration in the railway mail time-tables between here and Brisbane (says the Herald). The alteration which Mr. Mathieson has chiefly pressed is one which will provide for tbe arrival of the mails in Brisbane between 8 and 9 p.m., as he represents that, owing to the very late arrival at present and the necessity for crossing the river, passengers do not reach Brisbane until very late at night, and that conse quent upon this comparatively few persons non travel by train. Mr. Mathieson urged that the mail train be despatched from Sydney at about 4.45 p.m., in lieu of 6.15 p.m. as at present. Mr. Eidd quite realized the inconveni ence of the present arrangement, but pointed out that he had of course to consider the interests of the postal community of our own colony, and, as the departure of the train at 4.45 p.m. w...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. CABMEN'S LICENSE FEES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. CABMEN'S LICENSE FEES. Sir,— Beading under your report of West Mait land Borough Council the above, it certainly seems to my mind that the good idea to mitigate the burdens of the omnibus proprietors and cabmen in fees has only increased their liabilities and penalties. The Inspector must do his duty, or the police can enquire why such vehicles are plying for hire and demanding payment. At present the by-law is to pay £2 per year and 10a for drivers for licenses, which they have not. The Council say through the Mayor that the notice eaya — for further consideration of and if deemed desirable to take such steps as may be necessary to adopt the petition of cabmen for a reduction of their license fees. The Mayor thought that sufficient. The Mayor and Council may have thought so, and if by their motion they can overrule an Act of Parliament of which their by-laws are a component pait they arrogate to themselves a power which they do not poesesB. Clause 153 Municip...
