CRICKET CHATTER. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899
CEICPT(CHATTÈRT 4 The Military 0.0. forfeited their match against Kurrajong on Satur day last. Riverstone had rather an easy win playing against Wilberforce on Saturday last. Would club secretaries Mndly forward us the results of matches as early in the week as possible. "It must have been the lobster," was the expression used by many cricketers on -Saturday last, after making " blobs." Probably it was the heat. The Park Villa club are giving a good account of themselves in their match against the H. A. College team. The latter made 93 runs in their first innings, and there are only 4 of Park Villa out for 105. James Tuckerman, the Wilber force trundler, took four wickets in one over in a cricket match at Wil berforce, on Wednesday last, when they played a team of ld, the em ployees of Messrs. Moses and Dick Bros. A return match will be played on the Windsor ground next The principal scorers in the match between Wilberforce and the Employees of Messrs. Moses and DickBros. were[:-f o...

A Naval Court Martial. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899
A SEAMAN was tried recently on board H.M.S. Tauranga for as saulting one of the officers. A good deal of evidence was taken and the accused was proved guilty, and sentenced to two years' im prisonment. In the absence of details of the offence it is perhaps wrong to say this is a severe sen tence, but there can be no ques tion but that if such sentence was justified the assault must have been an aggravated and blood thirsty one. The excuse that order must be preserved on a man-o-war at all costs is not suf ficient excuse for so severe a pun ishment ; and the free citizen of this colony resents these Star Chamber enquiries. The system of trial by Court Martial has been altered very little since Captain Marryat's day, and that authority, was very strong in his criticisms of the method. One of the great principlbs of trial by jury is flag rantly violated, the accused is not tried by a jury of his peers, but as Marryat pointed out, he is tried by the officers of the squadron, who either ...
A Rumour. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899
A Rumour. THE announcement of the above court-martial recalls a rumour which, rightly or wrongly, met with considerable credence in Sydney at the time.

A South Pacific Federation. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Advocate — 8 December 1899
A South Pacific Federation. FEW people have any idea of the importance of the duties which will devolve upon the Federal Parlia ment. Hitherto no leading news paper has devoted the space to it that the matter deserves, nor have any politicians turned their atten tion. What little has been said or written on the question has been mainly from the Freetrade Protection standpoint, with whioh we are all familiar, and which-with politicians, comprises their entire Stock-in-trade. Undoubtedly the question of finance must be an im portant one ; it is so in all coun tries. But the nature of our pecu liar circumstances has to a very great extent pre-arranged our cus toms tariff, and Parliament haying settled that matter will have sub jects to deal with which will haye much greater results to Australia, B^^^o-iR^^vat large, than aug ^#?*ait last week with the posi fion of Australia towards New ¿Zealand m the policy of the future, |&ndthe arguments which apply to that colony also apply,...
