Raid by Sir Henry Parkes having lately appeared in the Press, a representative of the Sun day Times yesterday called upon Mr. Reid immediately upon his return from Hobart, and asked if he desired to make any reply to Sir Henry's statements. Mr. Reidsaid he had only seen tho articles since his arrival in Sydney, and had not had time to do moro than glance at them. He, however, tcok up a copy of an evening paper containing the report of an interview with Sir Henry Parkes, which he read in the presence of cur representative.

Works of tast Importance — What Has Deea Done— And Proposals for th& future — An Interesting . Interview. It Jjas often been truly said, but never thoroughly realised by croakers at home and sceptics abroad, that New South Wales is ono of the richest countries, if not ?absolutely tho richest, in natural resources, on tho face of the earth. With her w ool, coal, and jjrecious metals she occupies a foremost place, evon in the present un developed state of theso industries.

TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN. Oub duty moves ns to publicly acknowledge for ourselvos, and on behalf of all the Syrian people of Sydney, what nobody can deny, viz., tbo great good Joseph George Malouf has done for his countrymen in New South Wales from the time he came here up to the present — his kindness and favors to everyone. For one J. B. Manouk has, to our indignation, taken upon himself to write in the newspapers to show that Joseph Malouf was speaking against the Syrian people. Wo regret, in deed, that anything reflecting upon Mr. Malouf, who so little deserves tbe same, should have been published, especiallj' a3 upon read ing the papers it is seen that Mr. Malouf has not really so spoken. Wo aro all Turkish subjects, and do not wish to deny our dependence, and we wili not dispute the kindness which our Turkish Government lias shown towards us ; but, at tho same time, we must not forgot that by living in Australia we have been placed in tho country in the same favor as the Aus...

CIVIL SERVICE. VI.— W0BKS DEPABTMENT, Why the Railways Do J*ot Pay, THIS JTAUI/r Qjp1 T11J5 CQUSTJiJJCTIOH slum flow £300,000 a Year Cgn be Saved. (By the '- Sunday Times' CommibsioSeb.) The Railway Commissioners in their last annual report point out that although almost every railway line ia the colony at the present traffic rates clears actual work ing expenses even under tho depressed conditions, in far too rnanv instances the original amount expended in connection with the construction of certain lines is so enormous that annual receipts fail to balance interest on the works. THE EXPLANATION OF THIS state of affairs liaa in tho fact that tha Con struction Branoh is still under political and Departmental influence and control. Once a lino is constructed the task of making it pay is banded over to the unhappy Commissioners, who are oxpeotod to make up by tho closest economy and most unremitting vigilanoe for the initial blunders of the Works Department. This is truly a curious sta...
A COMMENDABLE ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
A C0MMEN DA BLR ENTERPRISE. Some time back the Sunday Times advocated the formation of a company or.co-oporative association of Europeans for tho purpose of raising vegetables for the supply of city and suburbs, as against the monopoly enjoyed by tho ChiuoSo in tho matter of market garden ing. It is gratifying to see that at last something definite has been decided upon in this direction. A company lias acquired 1900 acres oh George's River, near Campbelltown, which it is intended to dispose of in lots. Purohasors of sections will bo dealt with in tho matter of advances and othor aids, and on a guarantee that a regulfir 3iipply will bo kept up the company will undertake to puroha'se all vegetables grown at current market rates, thoro being 110 commission or other charges except a small item por cwt. for carriage. Tho company will also see that the vegetables are stored properly ond delivered to customers in good, wholesome condition. As has often been pointed out, it 6hly needs the ...

A SUCCESSFUL MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
A SUCCESSFUL EIISSION. As an example of indefatigable perse verance, resulting in a large measure of financial success, tho mission of the Rev. W. G. Taylor, who has just returned from a lecturing tour through England and America, with the object of raising money to pay off the debt on tho Centenary Hall property in York-street, is well worthy of notice. It appears that in tho compara tively short period of one year and nine months ho was absent he has succeeded in gathering a sum of JM000, a fact which Bpeaks volumes for the taient as well as the industry of the lecturer. Presuming that Mr. Taylor spoke on Australian subjects, and he could luirdly avoid doing so directly or indirectly, ho lias no doubt rendered good service by disseminating a knowledge of the characteristics and resources of this country amongst the British and American peoples. At nil events, his reception and the results of his mission shows that he has not unworthily sustained the credit and repu tation of Austr...
A SLOW PAY. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
A SLOW PAY. Last Sunday we gave publicity to a very reasonable complaint in reference to delay in paying persons who undertake the caro of boarded-oufe State children. The result has been satisfactory to those who were bo long kept without their money. Some ex planation should, however, be forthcoming as to the cause. Tho same remarks apply exactly to the complaints of delay in handing over the slender pay of the P.P. forces. There ie a great deal too much of this description of negligence in the Public Service generally, and it will probably be necessary to say something more about it. ;
CARRYING CORPSES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
CARRYING CORPSES. J The Railway authorities explain in con nection with the charge of 13 a mile for : carrying corpses that their minimum charge is less than that .prevailing on the . English railways. The charge is, never theless, very high, and b-e.-ars heavily on persons already weighed down by misfor tune. But the explanation of the Railway people is none the less reasonable. They point out that coffins cannot be carried an any part of ..the ordinary train, and that a hearse carriage ha-s consequently to be put ' on, and the charge for this of course cannot be considered exceptioual.
LIBERTY OP AN H.P. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
LIBERTY OF AN H.P. Members op Paeliament have many privi- : leges, but it is time the liberty which they enjoy of monopolising the time of Ministers : and under-eecretaries in the various de partments to the exclusion and annoyance of the public, was checked. Some of them : are more assertive than the Ministers, and if messengers don't run after them they are promptly xeported. -
PERSONAL. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
PERSONAL, Lady Parkes continues in delicate health. Sir Geo. Dibbs is in accord with Sir Henry Parkes. Mr. Reid likens Sir Henry Parkes to ' & civilised Polar bear.' Mr. Reid put on much weight during the Hobart series of picnic?. 'Mr. Reid has no constructive ability, although he is an admirablo critic.' — Sir George Dibbs. It is said that Lord Brassey makes it a rule to save a third ot his vast income every year. Sir Henry Parkes' late allusions to hia former colleagues have not . been in par ticularly good taste. We have reason to believe that after the 24th May ensuing the Premier will be known as Sir Geo. Reid. Sir Geo. Dibbs considers that at 'Cabinet tricks' he will never look on Hon. T. M. Slattery's like again. Many happy returns on Tuasday to Mr. Harrie Wood, Under-Secretary for Minei and Agriculture, born February 12, 1S37. Hon. 'Tom' Slattery walked into the banqueting hall accompanied by the Cardinal, He had the full benefit of clergy at his political funeral. M...

TOM SLATTERY'S POLITICAL WAKE. Shuro, 'twas eating aud drinking, and speeoh making fine ; M'Mulliou was present, with Copoland and Lylie, And mimbers, musicians, and lawyers galote * And they ate, and thoy ate till they couldn't cat more, Till they couldn't eat more : Not a ha'pennorth more. Chorus. There was lashings abd lavings of turkey and ham ; They gorged and they guzzled beef, mutton, aud la,mb ; They poliBbed ice-crames and Frinch dishes and cakc ; 'Twas a broth of a banquet was Slattery's wake. M'Mullion stood up, and sez he, ' I am here To throw me mimento on Slattery's ' bier.' ' ' 'Tis Toohoy, ye mane,' said soino innocent bloke. And they laughed at the tables because of the joke.

And 'twas thought by the waithors that something Would break If thoy didn't stop drinking at Slattory'a wake...
NOTES ON THE MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 10 February 1895
NOTES ON THE MATCH. (By 'Not Out.') Sid. Gregory was eleoted oaptain of the New South Wales team, and Percy M'Donnell aoted in a like capacity for the Banana landers. Percy M'Donnell owed his fall to a fino one hand catoh at mid-on by M'Kibben, who took a hard ball hieh. Coningham and M'Donnell eaoh played with great care. The left-hander in poking out at one snicked it into his wioket. Bradley's batting was of tho stonewall charaoter in the morning, but waa a shade brisker after lunoheon. The Queensland innings olosed at ten minutes to 5 for 106 runs, the last seven wickets added only 7 runs. M'Kibben took three for 2 and Iredale three* for 1 after the adjournment. Altogether M'Kibben oaptured five wiokets for 10, and bowled splendidly, breaking both ways. The fielding was exoellent Howell effecting two good catches in the slips, Gregory at extra mid-off, and M'Kibben at mid-on secur ing a very fine one eaoh, Trumper also fielding cleverly, whilst Kelly was at hia best at the wicke...
