THE ELECTORAL LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 January 1894

THE ELECTORAL TAW. Qualified electors will do well to bear in xnind the provisions of the new law. A generous Legielaiure has spared them as far as possible money expenFe in obtaining their rights to vote. But the Legislature was not able, eveD had it been willing, to froare them some little personal trouble. Electoral tigbte available for three years will eventually be issued, nhd those who possess them will enjoy without further anxiety about en rolment the opportunity to vote at every election occurring during that term. But the baBis on which the electoral rights go otit is the General Boll, and an elector whose name is absent from any G-eneral Roll will receive no right either in the firot distribution or unless he afterwards interests himself in the prescribed way to have the omission remedied. Though the police have collected tbe rolls, and saved him the trouble of personal register of bis name, there is a point in the proceedings at which he must actively help himself. The i...

Echoes of Sport. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 January 1894

Echoes of Sporty The raoe meeting at Newcastle on Monday must be regarded as a decided success were it not that it was responsible for some glaringly inconsistent running and lor some -wonderful reversals of form. Few regretted the slice ot luck which fell to such a veteran Bportsman as Mr. R. G. Yeomans, when Brenda, who is one of his own breeding, won the double. They were only unprepared for the victory, for the cognoscenti were agreed, almost ton man, that the handicaps were badly constructed, and that Hercules and Corsair had the plums of tbe pudding well within their reach. Some even went so far as to refer to the meeting in derisive tone3 as ' Chippendall's races.' And to see Brenda, who had been disgraced at Walls end a week previously, come out at the right end and simply run away from her whilom oonquerer ! It was incredible. But nevertheless it was true, and the curiosity to hear the explanation of tne owner and trainer waB so general that the stewards promptly decided to...

DISTRICT NEWS. NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 January 1894

DISTRICT HEWS. [From oun ConnEsroNDENTa.] NEWCASTLE. ahc proceedings of the last few days have consisted ot holi day-making, and but little business and few other events have taken place. The weather remained very favourable, and from early morning yesterday crowds of pleasure-seekers were about and n3tir. The tramways did a roaring business, and trains and steamers also had croivda on board. The beach was a great centre ol attractiou, and on no former occasion have we ever eeon such a crowd of pleasure- seekers. Their faces bore quite a different aspect to those of tho Christmastido holidays, due to the fact that a settlement in the coal trade had been effected, and the district likely to go ahead for n while. The whole tram and train arrangements were ndniirably carried out and without a hitch. Tho Stockton people held a regatta, -which was very well patronisea and was quite successful. The Hallewell Concert Company give a grand concert in the Masonic Hall on Friday night next. Th...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 2 January 1894

ITEMS OP INTEREST. [Original and Selected.] The diamond drill has been boring for coal on the Red Bluff, St. Kilda, for the past two weeks, and at a depth of 101ft. fiin, the drill pierced a splendid Beam of brown coal of excellent quality, 4ft. Cin. in thiokness. Thero are favourable indications nt 200ft. ot another ream, with the possibility of a thick seam of black coal at a depth of 400ft. The company have obtained a licence to tearch for coal over nn area of about 500 square miles around the bay, between Williamstown and Brighton. And thus do we find Newcastle's possibilities and prospects disap pearing. At a recent garnering, two ladies were talking about tne recently-acquired privilege of female franchise in New Zealand. Naturally, the conversation turned upon the likelihood of tl^i, principle being extended to the other colonies. Then the foiSJi lowing was overhead:— Unmarried Lady: 'If women gar vote?, I shall vote whichever way Harry votes, just to pleas* him.' Married Lad...

Yes, I know he will like me in it, and I laugh toftly to myself as I put it on. But here comes Phoebe, ray maid, looking half ?horrified, to find uic dressing without her aid. ' Oh, my lady !
