NOT PYJAMAS BUT BANANAS. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 6 July 1899
NOT PYJAMAS BUT BANANAS. The mention in a contemporary of ladies taking to pyjamas reminds one of the famous don who has amused and scandalised so many generations of 'V arsity men by his ingenious perversions of the accuracies of conversation. Here is one of the many malapropisms that are commonly attributed to nim. During a .pause at dessert at a big dinner party one evening, the don s hostess remarked to him, ' Do vou like bananas, Mr. B ? ?' and a gentle deprecatory voice replied : 1 No, madam ; 1 still cling to the old fashioned nightgown I' It is only seventy years since the first railway was finished, and now there are 400,000 miles in operation.

An Open Letter to Alderman Quirk. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 6 July 1899
An Open Letter to Alderman Quirk. Sir,— 1 was pleased when you rose in your place in the Council to refer to the ramour afloat as tu bow Alderman Flanagan obtained a seat in the council, but yon sur prised and disappointed me when you treated the rumor as incredible ; because yon have cnt your wisdom teeth and should have known jnst where to apply for an admission or contradiction of its correctness. I will here epnply yon with what- took place on the night prior to the day of nomination, as supplied by one of tho can didates. In order that there might be no contest the two gentlemen nominated agreed to spin a coin, the best three out fo five, the loser to stand out and the winner to be considered the choice of the rate payers. Now, assuming this to be. trae, it discloses a terrible lack of decency on the part of the candidates ; but worse than that it was a successful attempt at muzzling the ratepayers, who, in all probability, would have rejected the gentleman who won the toss ; a...

HALF-HOLIDAY v. WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 6 July 1899
HALF-HOLIDAY v. WELLINGTON. A match was played on Wednesday be tween the Wellington and Half-Holiday Clubs, and resulted in a win for the latter by 9 points to -8, after a close and exciting game. The former club was represented by. 14, and the latter 16 players. The new club set a good example to footballers in this dis trict, by turning out, without exception, neatly arrayed in black and yellow striped guernseys ; and tbey proved they had good material inside their uniforms by their play. Of course a perfect exposition of the game could not be expected from them, seeing they are a club of very recent foundation, and consequently their knowledge of the rules is not quite plu-perfect. But as every match goes on they are bound to improve in this respect. .Wellington was notrepresented by its strongest side, although Smith was playing, and they did not show their best form— at least we should be sorry to think so. As for the game, a detailed description is unnecessary, suffice it to s...
Mechanics' Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 6 July 1899
Mechanics' Institute. Last evening a very enjoyable concert came off in tbo Odfellows Hhll, in aid of the funds of the Mechanics)' Institute. To ? 8 certain extent it was on impromptu affair, * many of the items being arranged at the last moment in the hall; but it was very cood indeed, and tbo items were applauded , by a largo and appreciative audience. It , is a strange fact that a concert which is ar ranged in this way is generally a great aucccss, perhaps becauso or tne unoer iaini-y in tho minds of tho audience as to . what is to come next, so that a good item always ?receives proper recognition. The inde fatigable secretary, Mr. Long, was here, there and everywhere, and can bb' congrat ulated on tho success which attended his 6^The'concerl opened with a duet on the piano, by Misses Hughes and Horsey, nicely rendered.

Bodanyora Hotel License [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 6 July 1899
? ▼ . ? — '? - ?; I Bodangora Hostel Ucense It seems a wonderful thing to us that when evidence is given in a court on oath by reputable citizens of a town, in favor of a hotel license being granted to a man who ia given a good charaoter by everyone wbo knows him, and by the Senior-Sergeant of Wellington, — that what appears to be the wish of a considerable section of the people of and visitors to that town, should be over ridden even by a Judge of tbe District Court. A provisional license had been granted to William Patrick Rutter by the Licensing Bench of Wellington, and the owners of the mine at Bodangora appealed to the .higher court against the license being confirmed. They brought evidence from one section of the residents alone to allow that the people did not want the hotel, and chiefly relied on their owil opinion that the granting' of the license would do harm to tho miners, while admitting having had a notice pnt np at the mine, saying the ownero would take it as a person...

The statement^ of the Treaanrer for tho financial jear jtist ended, reveals a ptate o( affairs wbioh shonld be a source of con siderable gratificat ion to the people of this colony. It is aoDonnced that the year's working has resulted in a. surplan of £147,000, inolnding £106,000 broaght for* ward from 1898, and this in spite of the, drought and lingering effecte. of the. great financial crisis, of 1893. It will be re membered that Mt. Reid apprehended a. deficiency in November of last year, and with this fear in view bad resource to the' imposition of duties which considerably ?hook the faith of the people in bis protesta tions of devotion to the canse of freetrade. Without going into this matter, it may be ?aid that Mr, Reid deserved considerable credit for his boldness in defying the shafts of his sneering critics, and doing what he thought was necessary for the maintenance of the colony's credit. Of coarse, to (hoes ?onnd in their belief in the efficacy of pro...
