Here and There. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 January 1894
Here and tfhere. [By J.I I think the majority of the people of New South Wales will proclaim, ' Oh, let us be joyful,' that the government 01 the colony is not to be handed over to brazened-faced adventurers, whoare the foremoafc on the Opposition benches in the pre sent Parliament. Bankrupts, adulterers, ex* ? drovers, and shearers' cooks, led hr n. Tiniitiniil Biddy Moriarfcy, whose speeches throughout the country have been tho disgust of the city and country press. A man who has been before the country as a politician for fifteen years and occupied the position of a Minister of the Crown on more than one occasion and failed to benefit the colony by even a suggestion much less to leave his name on the Statute book as a benefasfcor. Yet this mounte bank is surprised that the Government 'will con tinue to hold office after the division which defeated his motion of censure, aud cries ' Crucify them.' ******** In what does humiliation of the Dibbs Govern-- ment consist? In administeri...
Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. (Queenslander, January 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 22 January 1894
11 Queensland Stock Movements and State of the Country. (Quecnslander, January 20.) The wet season may be said to have begun this week in most parts of the colony, and pastoralists and others whose prosperity depends directly upon the weather are satisfied with the prospect that lies before them. In some of the northern districts where dry weather has prevailed for a lonw «mQ copious rains have been experienced, assuring at leaatone more good season. The Wide Bay and Burnett district has had almost too much rain, Sin. being the record for a few days. With last year's experience fresh in memory the inhabitants of the country along the rivers have feared a flood, but happily their expectation has not been realised up to the present. In the far north-weat, although the amount of rain that has fallen haB been slight and somewhat patchy, the prospect is more encouraging than it has been for some time past. Cooktown, January 13.— Heavy rain fell here to-day, and is still falling. Mat-town...

LATEST SPECIAL TELEGRAMS. [Fboii the Pbess Telegraph Association.] SYDNEY. Tuesday afternoon. juice uooiey repuaiaces tne statement of having backed out oil a match with Harry Laing, the New Zealander. The former expresses his willingness to fight Lr;ng in six weeks' time for a purse of £100 without a side wager. There is very little of interest to report concern ing the political world. It is thought probable Sir George Dibbs will make a Ministerial statement to the House this afternoon as to the intentions of the Government. An efforb will be made to pass a supply bill for January to-morrow, which it is understood will rjrovide for additional road i-;nen. diture, so that the work of pushing forward road contracts will not be delayed by reason of the delay in the passage of the estimates. The Council will proceed to immediately deal with the Mining on Private Property Bill. The question of the appointment of a Minister of Lands is still in abeyance, and there is considerable specul...

FOOTBALL AS A MORAL AGENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894
EOOTBAili AS A MOBAI. AGENT. ' A contbibutob to the Nineteenth Century of December, Mr. H. H. Almond, deecantB on the value of football as a moral agent. Mr. Almond is headmaster of a great English public school, and may be presumed therefore to know eomething of the Bubject whereon he treats. Mr. Almond's position is that the nhvsical Bportu of nations have profoundly affected their influence upon the history of the world. Greek physical training schools, for example, shortened the drees which men were in the nabit of wearing, and the garb of the athlete was substituted in place of the Ionian flowing lobe. We are reminded of an observation toy Fronde or Oariyle, we think, to the effect that monastic obedience was largely the result of the sense of restraint imposed upon novices by the long gown they were compelled to wear, impeding the free use of the limbs. And it is not uamanifest that one effect of the emancipation of woman is to set her longing for a garment heretofore consecra...

Review. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894
Keview. Joyce Marlindale. By Mrs. H. E. Russell, author of Too Easily Jealous. London and Sydney : Remington and Co., Limited. This story might as fitly be railed Everard Trewyn, or Jasoa Saldein, or Alice Saldei'n, or Jack Mansfield, as tbe name which Mrs. Kubiell has chosen. For these are all characters which have some prominence in the work. Joyce Martindala is less a story than a series of episodes, in themselves undoubtedly interesting, in the lives of certain people. In the case of Joyce herself, a young lrdy in 'society' in Sydney, the tale is that of her meeting with an ascetic curate, Everard Trewyn, her awakening to a sense of the deeper obligations of life after hearing him preach an earnest sermon the growth of their mutual lore and his abandon ment of the doctrine of clerical celibacy, and the rupture of their fond relations by the discovery that Trewyn has a brother who, in the position of clerk to Joyce's father, had embezzled money and had undergone a sen tence in Pe...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WOMAN SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 23 January 1894
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. WOMAN SUFFEAGE. Sir,— Although I am not an advocate for tho extension of the franchise to women, but rather one who hopes from the bottom of his alarmed heart that our gentle sisters will never put forth a serious or anything like unanimous claim to it, yet must I take exception to the line of argument adopted by ' Eomeo' in your Saturday's ? issue, where he professes to deal with tho matter. I do not nunger tor tne hour when women will jostle tee at the polling booth nor address me from the public platform, and I do not want her to sit facing ma when I get into the House, nor yet to hurl the stern decree of justice at me from the bench : yet my desires nor tho3e of ' Romeo' may not always run in accordance with things that are in them selves correct and proper— distasteful to ua ; bat nevertheless, just and right in the main. I maintain that women are in many ways as qualified to go to the front as men are. Tuey have amply proved this in literature and in law...
