EMPHATICALLY NO. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
EMPHAT10ALLZ NO. 'F.O'N. ' answers in the negative, for the following reasons: — In the first plaoe, we all believe in freedom of contract, and marriage is a oontraot by whioh two persona of opposite box enter' into an agreement to live together for the term of thoir natural lives, under cer tain conditions most binding ; and when we consider th&t it is .the making or marring of a lifotimo, ia it any wonder that singlo men hesitate, especially when thoy read tho law reports of the .jdaily papors? Is man a freo agent, to bo specially taxed for not entering into this oontraot, either from disinclination or f oar of the future P Another view is that a large majority of thoso, who daily marry — consumptives and others — are guilty of tho groasest and vileBt aina that man can oommit. Then because man is true to himself and future generations, ia ho to bo speoially taxed ? The question is monstrous.

A MASONIC MYSTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
A MASONIC MYSTERY. It. is not often that the outer world is allowed to become familiar with the dis agreements of the brethren of the mystic tie, and it is hardly to be wondered at if the fact of an appeal to the law courts to settle the disputes between two bodies of Sydney Freemasons arouses a certain degree of curiosity amongst the uninitiated. Whether this will be gratified by affording any glimpses of the mysterious proceedings that are supposed to take place behind the veil it would be difficult to say, but it has certainly been whefcted by the peculiar allusions to portions of the property, or perhaps we should say properties, in dis pute, indulged in by the learned counsel retained in the case. It is stated,-for instance, that when the seceders left the lodge represented by plaintiffs they took tho whole of the bookB, minutes, and records ofithe lodge, the Masonic jewels, and, in fact, the usual things possessed by a Masonic body. Of course the first thing that the outside p...
A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT. According to a Forbes telegram published a few days oinco, the police in that district saem imbued with a somewhat large, not to cay liberal, view of their powers and privileges, seeing that a constable in tho above locality did not soruple to shoot at and 'wing' a man whom he wished to arrest on suspicion of having committed forgery. No doubt it is quite necesaary-to arm the police, and even empower them to use firearms against persons resisting arrest or themselves resorting to violence ; but it will strike most parsons as involving a dangerous precedent to admit the right of a policeman to drop a man in his tracks in order to secure an easy arrest on the mere suspicion that he is guilty. If this is allowed, what is to pre vent any constable directly ono man is accused by another of having committed some, offence, shooting him on sight, as the speediest means of effecting a capture P There is a vast difference between a culprit caught in the act of burglary ...
LIBRARY BOOKS AND INFECTIOUS DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
LIBRARY BOOKS AND INFECTIOUS DISEASE. In connection with our recent articles on the above subject, the following extract from the British Medical Gazette will be. found interesting:— 'Dr. Loyett, M.O.H. St. Giles, writes to say that in his district a list of infected premises is regularly fur nished to the librarian of the public library, who immediately stops the issue of books to borrowers residing in these premises, and books ? returned from such t-lace3 are at once disinfected by the Board's workmen free of charge. Dr. Henry Kenwood, M.O.H. Stoke Newington, informs us that very similar regulations are in force in that parish. A copy. of. 'every notifi cation of infectious illness is forwarded at once to the public library. The librarian ascertains if. any boot has been lent to an inmate of the infected house, and, if .so, the book is not received into the library again until the public health authority certifies that the premises and the book have been disinfected to its satis f...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. THE CITY WATER RATES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. — . — © — , . THE CITY WATER RATES. Thh faefc of the City Council having .adopted a resolution protesting against any increase in the Water and Sewerage rates, and in favor of securing control of the water and sewerage reticulation within the boundaries of thoir jurisdiction, show that they are beginning to recog nise the difficulties and inconvenienciesof a divided authority in these matters. It is evident, however, that it would be quite impracticable to grant what the Council asks for, inasmuch as there is an immense suburban adjacent area equally interested in the proper management of water supply and sewerage, and equally entitled to a voice in its control. In any readjust ment of the relations of the consumers to this important department it will be absolutely necessary to recognise the municipal areas lying outside the city, and the general dissatisfaction which has been evoked by the existence of so many soparate jurisdictions is clear evidence .that some...
TERRORISED. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
TERRORISED. The extent to whioh the larrikin pushes of the city still exercise a terrorism over their victimB has been again exemplified by a case called on at the Redfern Court on Thursday, when a defendant on remand was charged with having inflicted grievous bodily harm on Joseph Healt ; but there was no appearance of the prosecutor because, as the police stated, he had been threatened with the vengeance of the push if he gave evidence. The magistrate very pro perly ordered a Bummons to compel the man's attendance, but it is certainly the duty of the police to afford proper protection to the injured and threatened person. if the facts are as represented, they seem in some degree to reflect on the police themselves, inasmuch as the push evidently presume on their immunity from interference by the constituted authorities when they boldly threaten their victims with dire results if they dare to en deavor to obtain legal redress. That such threats should be efficacious is a slur upon ...
THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
THE MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. Considering the importance of the functions entrusted to , the local Municipal Councils, and the large powers possessed by those bodies, the interest taken by the general public in the annual elections is certainly not what might be expected in a com munity where the acts and qualifica tions of public men are so closely regarded and so extensively criticised. Although Tuesday next is by some peculiar hocus pocus peculiar to the drafters of our statutes designated the ' day of nomination,' the nomi nation of candidates actually closed on Tuesday last, that being the latest period permitted for so doing, the language of the Act following ont Talleyrand's -well-known dictum in being apparently carefully intended to conceal its meaning. At all events, the candidates for eeats in the various Councils are now definitely before the ratepayers, and yet there is a degree of apathy which is strangely at variance with the magnitude of the interests involved and the hab...

CANTERBURY PARK RACES. RAIN SPOILS SPORT, And Outsiders Get Home, [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
CANTEBBDEY PARK EACES. BAIN SPOILS SFORT, . And Outsiders Get Home, It would be difficult to pitoh upon a more unpleasant day than yesterday for raoing, but the olub authorities decided to go on rather than take' the risks attending postponement. Postponed meet ings are ' generally unsatisfactory, and perhaps it is as well that the meeting is over and done with. Notwithstanding the weather, a good attendance was seen in the enclosures, and people dared the elements throughout the afternoon very bravely. The new railway carried race visitors for the first time, and the experience was not a oleasant one. The train service was satisfactory, but the tramp, from the new station to the entry gates was not appreciated owing to the sloppy ground that had to be oovered. When good paths are made matters will be improved in wet weather, but the initial trip on the nevr line through rain and driving wind was decidedly unpleasant. Backers ggot an instalment of what was in store for them in the f...
A JOCKEY'S FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
( A JOCKEY'S FAILURE. In D. C. Johnston e s noted work on . V Jookeys and their Career,' he dwells at length upon the numbers of riders .who, relying on their usual good luck, grow care less, und gradually decline into..- obscurity. Successful jockeys study, more than other men, their. diet and exercise, and above all things keep their lungs. in order. They are all smokers, however,- and it is through indul ging' in-common tobaccos' and1 cigarettes that many of them lose their wind, and cannot ride a hard finish. We do not: say that all tobaccos are iniurious. and wo can even safelv advise thereto try Frossard's Cavonr Cigars for a week. They will be quite satisfied that these weeds contain no injurious elements whatever, although they retain, a. delicious aromatic flavor.
