ECHOES OF SPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 January 1894

ECHOES OF SPOBT. The disappointing Singleton horae Frank was re turned to his owner, Mr. W. Y. Cousins, at Single ton during the week, and will probably bo treated to a spell, Frank has lately been an inmate of Alderman Teddv Kevs' stable, and on occasions showed a good deal of pace, but he was never capable of winning a race, and the son of Welcome Jack very soon got himself disliked by his trainer. ' Birds in their little nests agree and tis a shameful sight when children of cne famiiy fall out and chide and fight.' Those veteran racing men Eli Jellett and D. Fountain had a quarrel in the saddling paddock at Caulfield a few days ago, and from words came to blows. Then the stewards pounced upon them, fired them off the course. There is another quotation which might be aptly quoted for the benefit of these gentlemen, but un fortunately I have forgotten it. ' While running about loose at Randwick on Monday afternoon last the racehorse Redan received a severe cut on one of his pastern...

PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. TUESDAY, JANUARY 23. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE MINING ON PRIVATE LANDS BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 January 1894

PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Herald). TUESDAY, JANUARY 23. LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE MINING ON PRIVATE LANDS BILL. A slight discussion occurred over a formal motion by Sir George Dibbs, requesting the Legislative Council to reinstate and proceed, with the Mining on Private Property Bill. Mr. Reid said he was willing that the motion should go as a formal one, for he recognised the necesaitv for the bill being carried into law as speedily as possible. At the same time he intimated that he would not feel inclined to assist the Government with its business in other directions. Several members took the opportunity of saying a few words before the motion was agreed to. A MOTION FOB ADJOURNMENT. The action of the Government in providing special trams and trains for members last Thursday night came in for criticism on a motion for adjourn ment. Mr. Farnell was the member who brought the matter up, and ' five hon. memberB having risen in support of the member for Central Cumberland,' he p...

LOCAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 January 1894

LOCAL NEWS. Proposed Narrabri to Moeee Railway. — Mr. -Garratd laid on the table of the Legislative Assembly last night the report o£ the Parliamen tary Standing Committee on Public Works on tho proposed railway from Narrabri to Moree. The report sets out (according to the Herald) that the principal object in constructing the railway was to retain for the railways of this colony a traffic from the districts near the southern border or Queens land, which legitimately belongs to New South Wales, and which, unless railway communication be extended northwards from Narrabri, will, go elsewhere. Another reason for constructing the line was the desirableness of developing more rapidly than can take place in existing circumstan ces a large tract of country which, for natural richness and for productiveness, is equal to country in any other part of New South Wales. The estimated cost of constructing the railway was less than in the case of any Govern ment line previously constructed in New S...

DISTRICT NEWS. GRETA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 January 1894

DISTRICT NEWS. [From our Correspondents.] GRETA. Kicked by a Horse.— On Tuesday afternoon a rather bad accident occurred in Hunter-street to a boy, 13 years of age, named Lai. Heney. The lad» who seems to be of a rather lively nature, was playing about in front of his residence when a youth riding past on a saddle horse claimed his attention. He appears to have rushed over on the instant and caught the animal's tail, and the horse lashed out and caught the boy on the shoulder and temples, throwing him stunned and bleeding in the dust. Help was soon on the spot, and the boy was carried in and Dr. Rogers sent for, and that gentleman managed after a time to restore animation and examine his hurts. These did not appear serious, consisting only of a slight abrasion on the, right temple and a bruised shoulder, and the doctor prescribed for him to that extent, but could not give any decided opinion as to how the case might eventuate. Calling to en quire late last night we learned that the ...

CHICAGO AS VIEWED BY PANMURE GORODN. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 January 1894

CHICAGO, AS TIEWED BY PANMTJRE GORODN. Nothing strikes the visitor to the United States more powerfully than the extraordinary improve ment which fche American railway system has undergone during the last few years. One has only to travel from New York to Niagara, a distance of about 500 miles, afc the rate of more than 40 miles an hour, or take one of the sumptuously furnished expresses to Chicago and cover more than double that distance afc a still faster rate of speed. Such quick work will put him somewhat out of conceit with the lightning-like qualities of our English trainB. The express trains at present running be tween New York and Chicago do the 1000 miles and odd in a trifle under 24 hours. The ' intelligent traveller must visit Chicago to form an accurate idea of America. I arrived in Chicago on fche anniversary of the conflagration of October, 1871. From the Sunday evening until fche following Tuesday the great fire set human bravery and every fire-restricting appliance a...

Three Days with Tyson. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 January 1894

Three Days with Tyson. [By E. A. D ? t, in 'The Queenslander.'] About five years ago I travelled north in the Arawatta. It was growing dusk &s she left the wharf, all good-byes had been said, and aB the supper gong was sounding most of us picked up our travelling traps and dived for our cabins. In my cabin there were two bunks ; on the lower of these lay a tall man with coat and waistcoat off, and a red handkerchief bound around his head by way of a nightcap. I bade him good-evening. He nodded, and then in silence watched me as I unstrapped my bag and got out some things. Seeing me unfold my pyjamas and throw them on the top bunk, he asked : ' Are you going to turn in notr ?' ' No,' I replied, ' not quite ; but you look as if you had gone to camp for the night.' ' Ah !' he said. ' Tou're a bushman, I see. I thought so at first, but the travelling bag and the pyjamas puzzled me a bit.' And he looked proudly down at an old worn saddle valise and a rug rolled up in a tanned kan...

NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 24 January 1894

NEWCASTLE. . Last night about half-paat eight the guns at the Fort were fired three times in indication of a fire. It turned out to be a conflagration at the premises of Messrs. Cohen and Co., near Parnell Place. The crowd of people which soon assembled was very large, but the police were present in a large body, and kept the crowd away from the building. The iron of the Bhed was red hot, but the brigades were successful in keeping the fire from spreading. It lookB as though the greater portion of the building was destroyed. The police were in attendance all night. The loai must be severe, though we are informed that the stock was insured. We have again had our attention drawn to the question of the sewerage snrvey. It will be remembered that this was pointedly referred to in a former communication, and then we informed our readers that the Municipal Council had decided against the scheme and gave the reasons for so doing; The Council further passed a resolution protesting against t...
