Dodging off the Jury. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate — 22 December 1888

Dodging off the Jury* Tbe free--thinking juryman who objected to taking the usual oath on the ground that he no religious belief has found, no doubt to his surprise (says a London paper), that the pica does not release him from attendance at the law courts. M r. Justice Stephens readily ex cused him from serving on the particular jury, but declined to let him go altogether. As the learned .ludee nointed out. it would be dangerous to encourage the idea that a profession of infidelity may save people from the obligations of citizenship. It does not greatly matter ivliat, opinions are held on matters of religion by the unscrupulous per sons who would trade upon them in order to evade their public duties. Their creed is a matter between themselves and their con sciences ; but we see. no reason why law and practice should be altered simply to furnish an e«By taodc of escaping a burdensomecivicduty.

This company has been forced, through want of work, to give notice to all the workmen that they can employ them no longer, and to-day the 300 men who have been given employ ment for some time past, are to be paid oil* at noon and tbe works closed until further notice. The throwing out of employment of this number nien will mean great distress to a large number of families.
