GENERAL REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
GENERAL REMARKS. Monoy is getting very abundant, and the banks are getting plenty of it on ourrent account. For the four onlonies of New South Wales, ? Victoria, South Australia, and Queensland the total increase iu cur rent accounts for tho quarter ending Decem ber 31 last was 110 less than ^£2.284,269 over the previous quarter in that year, and the inorease has apparently continued during Jannary and into the present month. As tho Argus very justly says, 'Nothing like this has oocurred before. Under tho existing cir .oumstances of the colonies the movement is a healthy one, for it iB a presage of more active employment of mouey, as ourrent account holders will not be long content to leave large balances unusad. For the banks also the movement is favorable, for it enables them to obtain control of money at a lowor average rate. There is, howover, the eat-off that deposits at call oannot be utilised for long dated commitments.' We look forward with great certainty to a very quiok an...
PAUPER BURIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
PAUPER BURIALS. It would appear from some suggestive correspondence which has recently taken place between the Liverpool Council and the publio that the state of things to | ?which the Sunday Times callod attention j in respect to the burial of pauperis in cer- ] tain metropolitan cemeteries is existent at Liverpool in an aggravated degree. In this burial-grouud it is alleged that four bodies are buried in one ' hole,' the coffins being iu some instances only a few inches from the surface, whilst there appears to be no means of distinguishing the graves or of recording the identity of the persona buriod in them. In reply to a letter from tho Mayor sug gesting some more decent arrangement, not to speak of one more consonant with sanitary precautions, the Director of Charitable Institutions wrote that he saw no reason to depart from ''the custom which appears to have operated satis factorily for so many years,' a decision' i subsequently endorsed by the Chief Secre tary's Department. ...
NOTES AND COMMENTS. MUNICIPAL COUNCILS AND POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
NOTES AND COMMENTS. MUNICIPAL COUNCILS AND POLITICS. There seemB to bo a growing tendency lately OU tho part of many of tho Municipal Councils to step out of their proper place and tabo pnrfc in discussing State politics. All example of thid is afforded by the Hunters' Hill Council, which, at it3 last meeting, agreed to nsk the concurrence of other municipal bodies in a formidable resolution of a decidedly controversial nature : — ' That, considering the un esnmplud decrease in tho value of all land within the colony during the last fon? years, the Council is of opinion that a laud tax for governmont purposes ou districts already incorporated and subject to muni cipal taxation would be most Oppressive, and further decrease the value of land within duch districts, and thereby bring about financial complications ; further, the Council most respectf ully wish to point out that Out of a total of 310,700 square miles, comprising the whole area of tho Colony, oill v 2436 sqilai'e mi liis ...
PARLIAMENT AND THE CONFERENCE SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
PAELIAMENT AND THE CON FERENCE SCHEME. Whatever may 'be the faults or ad vantages of the scheme for promoting' Federation adopted by the Premiers' Conference at Hobart, it will have to be considered upon its own merits, and not be complicated by any attempt to foment the jealousy ot Parliament. The fact is painfully evident thut whether Parliament is competent to discuss the question or not, it is very much disinclined to devote the time necessary for its proper consideration, and to wait until it does so simply means a post ponement till the Greek Kalends. In addition to this, Parliament has never received any mandate on the subject, and would come to tho consideration of the question without tho slightest knowledge of the wishes of its con stituents. The election of a popular con vention specially delegated with authority to deal with the subject would suffer from neither of these disabilities, and how its existence could clash with, or constitute any slur or slight upon Parliamen...
A TAXPAYERS' LEAGUE, [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
A TAXPAYERS' LEAGUE. It would seem to be one of the radical defects of modern systems of popula? government that it is \tell-nigh im possible to imbue the ordinary st mud headed ' taxpayer with tbe idea of his identity as a unit in a self governing community, and that it is he and his fellow-taxpayerB who have to find the funds by which all' the operations of government are carried on. The difficulty must surely be due to the hereditary transmission of a sentiment handed down from the period when monarchs did all the governing, and tho people had to supply the money and aak no ques tions. In -these days the people still have to supply the funds, but they are supposed, alEO, to havo a con trolling voice in their expenditure. How far this ia a mere supposition is, however, rather difficult to say, but so long as they regard with callous and careless indifference tho gross ; and reckless waste of money which they themselves contribute, th&y. will certainly continue to be the su...

SAILING. A Bad Bay and Many Capsizes. (By ' Weather-Eye.') When aro we going to have a thoroughly fino Saturday afternoon again ? Yesterday afternoon was as wet and miserable for a time as it could bo. Tho old south wind piped up for tho ocoasion too, so that it might have a say, and a good say, in the sailing business. Aerain thore were many capsizes in the Harbor. The 10ft Dingy Championship, whioh was to have been sailed yesterday under the flag of tho Johnstono's Bay Sailing Club, was postponed owing to weather. The 24-footor championship of the John stone's Bay Sailing Club ended in a one boat affair. There wero three starters, Volunteer, Lady Loch, and Willia.

BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
Es64&JEltoM6B&fl^ It is certainly a good thing that our G.O.M. has so much hair to fall back upon, because from the frequency with which he figuratively get3 it ' off,' nothing: else but a bountiful natural Bupply could stand the drain. He is now raging because another Federation scheme is on thetapis, of which he is not the author. It may or may not prove either meritorious or successful, but he will have a difficulty in getting the public to condemn it simply because he is not the leader in the movement. It is im possible to forget that he has never yet supported auything of which he was not the head and front, but he may as well recognise the fact that the new scheme is going to be dealt with striotly on ita own merits, if it has any, and that it is neither the better nor the worse for his bann or his blessing. # a a Theeie seems to be no doubt that the makings of a successful billiard-marker were spoilt in the person of the ex-bogie man of the Opposition Party, i...
