Wesleyan Sunnay Schoo 1 Anniver sary, Darling-street. Those ot our readers who, like ourselves, had the good fortune to be present at the Darling-street Wesleyan Sunday School Services which were held on Sunday last, will, we have no doubt, agree with us in the wish to pay some small tribute to the untiring efforts of those who take so great an interest in the welfare of this excellent school. The attendance was gooa. ana we are oounu to say. that we were much pleased with the services in every respect, but particularly were we delighted with the children's singing, which was really excellent and reflects the greatest credit upon their instructor, Mr. W. J. Laws, senr. On Tuesday the annual service of song was held in the church, and a pleasing programme, sustained by the school children, enabled the visitors to spend a very agreeable evening. Mr. Jacob Garrard, M.L.A., who has been superintendent of the school for a number of years, presided, and addresses were delivered by the Rev...

Current items. We propose to issue an extraordinary giving an account of the elections and the result of the boat race. Our readers ? will find full particulars re the election, | polling booths, &c., in an advertisement. The clanging of the fire-bell has twice alarmed people living in Darling-street east. Yesterday evening a chimney on fire at Kestle's bakery brought out the | brigade, but fortunately th& flame was : subdued before any damage was done, ' although the eaves of a roof narrowly escaped catching fire. The election of Mayor on Tuesday promises to cause excitement. Alder men Garrard, M.L.A., and Hancock are the aspirants. If the meeting in favour of Local Op tion, which was held at the Temperance I Hall on Monday Inst, may be taken as indicative of the feelings of the inhabi tants of Balmain, the advocates of ob stinence are to be congratulated. The Mayor, Mr. Cameron, who occupied the chair, commented in a very happy man ner on the sucoess which had atte...
MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 7 February 1885
MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. ' vPuring the past week the battle for ' seats . in . the Borough Council and a voice in the management of municipal affairs has been raging fast and furions in each of the wards.- Stump speeches and in some instances hasty, thought less and injurious harangues by sup porter of certain candidates have been the' order of- the day. Aldermen, nasi and present, officers of the Couneil, and even ourselves have got what the speakers would, no doubt, like to think annihilating criticism. We have fared badly at the hands of a leading- sup porters of Mr. Reynolds; on what plea we, knew not, for in our remarks of last issue we rather favored Mr. Reynolds' candidature. We apologise now, how ever, to the South-West Ward electors ? for having done bo. We were not then aware of the scenes which occur red at some of that candidate's meetings. The present Council are a temperate family,, and the presence of anyone at the table who would so far forget himself as to curse and swe...

. Local Option. A public meeting to . consider the above question was held in the Temperance Hall, Balmain, on Monday night, when a ' large muster of ratepayers, atid a fair sprinkling of Jadies, were in attendance. HiB Worship' the Mayor (Mr. J. Cameron), who occupied the chair, expressed great pleasure in presiding, over a meeting to con sider such an important question, and also was pleased to see so many gentlemen on tne plat form competent to speak on the subject and bring forth conclusive arguments. Local Option was one of the-component parts of the existing Licensing Act, which gave ratepayers of any Borough power to say whether they would permit an increase or the removal of publicans' licenses. The Act had been in existence three years and they were now called upon to express another opinion under the Local Option clause, to-day whether it had resulted in good or evil. A few simple faots would prove that Local Option hnd done good; For instance, in referring to statistics i...

Mb. Elkington. Tbi- gentleman held his first public meet- , ing in connection with his candidature at Barr's Hotel on : Wednesday evening. There was a large, but decidedly undemon strative audience. Mr. Peterson was voted to the chair, and in introducing the candidate spoke of him as a man of independent charac ter, 'and one who would be able to make -his influence feit on behalf of the ward. Mr. Elkington said he had not come as a stranger amongst the ratepayers of that ward nor of Balmain generally. Some ten years ago he first appeared as a candidate for a seat in the Council, and was ilected for the North Ward. When in the Council, he could say without the least egotism, he held his own. He then alluded to his defeat at the bands of the North Ward electors when he was put for ward against a very popular man ; but he could stand defeat . During his term in the Council he could say he had brought affairs from a state of chaos to strict discipline. A great many men sought for munici...
