THE PROPOSED AMALGAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 22 December 1888

THE PROPOSED AMALGAMATION. From enquiries we have made, we hear there is no probability at present of the proposed amalgamation taking place between the Pavrainatta and Coatcs Cricket clubs. The A nous Cup contests just now put the idea out of the question so far as regards Coates Club ; but we underslaid that very favourable opinions have been expressed on the matter by some of the prominent members of the junior club. We are sure all lovers of cricket in the district desire to see the union brought about. There are many good men in Coates Club that would be able to take their places in our most representative team, and, unfortunately, the senior ,'lub of the town has not received that support to which it. is entitled. The strength of Parrumatta's cricketing power is by 'no means adequately represented in our premier club, but were an amalgamation brought about with Coates' Club, a team could be got together that would hold its own against the best clubs in the colony. Parramatta w...

Tho applicant, Albert Card, moved for a rule nisi, calling upon Thomas Henry Rawlings, financial agent of Parramatta, to show cause why he should not be dealt with for an alleged breach of the 13th section of the Attorneys Act, in practicing as a solicitor and couveyeucer of the Supreme Court. Mr. Wise said that he moved on the affidavit of Albert Card, and he might mention that the applica tion originally came before Mr. Justice Foster, who refused to deal with it as a matter of urgency . Since the affidavit had been filed Mr. Levien's name had been withdrawn entirely from the business, and he had stated that he was in no way connected with Mr. Rawlings, as the affidavit would seem to identi - oate. Any reflei tion cast upon him, therefore was now withdrawn The afiidavit of Albert' Card, of Pa r n atia, a certificated convey.mcer, stilted that, respondent, Thomas Henry Raw ...
