GRATITUDE; OR POLITICAL PRINCIPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895

GRATITUDE ; OB POLITICAL PRINCIPLE. This iB the sort of newspaper apostacy that some so-called politicians get written for' them in the incredible be lief and hope that it will do them good. The only person who gets any good out of such palpably insincere stuff, is the way-worn scribe, who, at election-time, is able to torn in a crust writing it. More power to the scribe ; for if he, in hiB extremity, prostitutes, so far aB he is able, the highest profession tbe world knows, he at least helpB, unwittingly, the candidature of the man he professes to attack. All things work together to promote t'ue Right ! This is from a Sydney daily ; — ' The retirement of Mr. W. J. Ferris, who polled over 500 votes at the last general election, has reduced the present contest to a duel between Mr. Dowell O'Reilly, school -teacher, who was pitch forked into the House last year, aud and the old warrior, Mr. Hugh Taylor, lor years rarnnnaiia s represeniawve in Parliament.

"When the Ship comes Home." [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895

'When {he Ship comes Home.' Despite the idea of many an elector that in this or that candidate he has a man who will ' vote agin' the land tax ' ; it is very hard to find the candi date who will openly declare himself against the principle of land value taxation. Every man who is opposing j the Reid Government proposals either believes in the principle — with a ' but , or opposes tbe present proposals — with a ' though.' The square,' downright denunciator of the principle of making the owners of the soil provide for the management-expenses of the country has disappeared. ' We are all ' land taxers' now' — to borrow Sir W. V. Habcouet's phrase re Socialists. Even the individual who most vigorously op poses tbe ' Government man' on this occasion assures us that he has been longing, for this many a year, for a land tax — but one under a Local Government system 1 'Local Govern ment ' has, somehow, been worked to the forefront; which, considering the nature of the subject, ib a bit surpr...

These questions are particularly pertinent at this juncture. If promises were all that are to be re quired, the seat could be secured by anybody. There is no way of compel ling a candidate to redeem his pledges — and it has been well argued that there should be none, lest the people should trust the briber rather than the sterling man.

A Word from the Far Off Boys. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895

A Word from the Far Off Boys. ^ [Communicated.] Scattered far and wide all over the Australian continent are sons and daughters of oldParramatta. Where'er one goes in the land of anomalies, we will find them ; away up in the torrid terrible Gulf countiy ; buried in the magnificently fruitful Big Scrub ; out beyond the drought-stricken Western plains ; aoroBS the meandering Murray in the . vigorous little ' ' Cabbage Garden;' prospecting and risk-running ' in the parched auriferous West ; following all sorts of professions, trades and occupa tions. And these exiled sons, though far removed from the dear old town of boyhood's and early manhood's ardent days, take an exceeding great interest in all that concerns its social, moral and political well-being. It has often been said, that the average, young Aus tralian makes a serious study of athletics but only spasmodic sport of politics ; that on the one hand he gives ui uurw-rauuig, luutuau tmu cncaet alto gether too much time and atten...

JUSTICE AND LIBERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895

JUSTICE AND LIBERTY. Premier Reid at Botany : 'I am now face to face with the Legislative Coun cil. They have challenged me to go to the country, and spoken with scorn and contempt of the people. They, no doubt, thought that like others had done, I should go on betraying you ; but I am not made of that stuff. (Cheers,) I have, thank God, honest Scotch blood in-my veins that never stood tyranny ^et, ana tne oiooa oi ocoiiana is none, thq worse for the sunshine of Australia. (AjJplaftse). I have entered on the l«£t fight, and will never desist until I have rescued the soul and spirit of our free institutions from the grasp of men dead to all sense of justice. You may rely that I shall neither palter nor falter. I have pledged myself to the battle, and will fight it to the end, and when the fight is over there will not be ruin or revolution, but there will be justice and there will be liberty. (Loud and pro longed cheers).

Accident. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895

Accident. About noon on Tuesday Arthur M'Credie, son of Mr. Geo. JH'Credie, met with a serious accident. He was in the act of opening that ponderous iron gate fronting Byron-street when by some unaccountable means it fell from its hinges and pinned the little fellow to the ground. Fortunately his aunt ana Drotner rtoy were close at hand. After considerable difficulty they lifted the gate high enough to be able to rescue little ' Arty,' whon it was discovered that one of his legs was broken below the knee. He was at once taken to Parramatta to Dr. Bow man, who speedily set the broken limb. Much sympathy is expressed here among the residents for Mr. and Mrs. M'Credie.

Anderson was in the chair. The can didate said it was not at his own desire that he was contesting the seat ; but many friends had pressed him. He appeared in the interests of the fruit growers. They had held a meeting at Seven Hills, and selected Mr. T. Fye, but that meeting was not a re presentative one, and some present were not eligible to Vote ; therefore he was not going to abide by their decision. He was opposed to the Bad Govern ment and their mode of legislating and polioy ; he was in favour of the Upper Honsd-- The Lower Chamber . had brought about the crises and antago nism with the Upper.

A STRANGE PROCEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 20 July 1895

A STRANGE PROCEEDING. At the inquest on Father Keating the other day, a number of railway officials (represented by a solicitor) were present. When the evi dence was finished the solicitor pointed out to the Coroner that evidence could, if required, be called, on the point of the safety of our pre sent cars and our present platforms. He said the cars were as safe as it was possible for them to bo ; and he ventured to think that the jury had no call to go into the point at all. One or two of the jury (the foreman included) seemed anxious to ascertain if finality in the matter of safety had been reached : but other jurymen thonght that the point was not material. Later on the solicitor suggested whilst the vcrdict was being entered that a rider should bo added stating practically that it would be impossible to make safer arrange ments. (This, be 6aid, he thought was oallcd for, as Mr. Michael Davitt's remarks in the Press, rc the late accident, however well meant they might be, were o...
