Extended Holidays. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 23 December 1893
Extended Holidays. Several representatives of banking and commercial interests in Sydney have been endeavouring to get the Government to pro claim Wednesday next, December 27, a public holiday ; and Civil servants were also of opinion that the idea was a good one. The Premier, however, has refused to grant the extra holiday, as it would not only cause in convenience and loss to the community generally, but would mean a loss of about £5000 in wages in the public service alone. The Express here rise3 and pats Sir George Dibbs on the back and says, ' Hear, hear !' This holiday craze is becoming a great nuis ance in the colony, and we are pleased to find the Premier has realised this fact and has tefused the unreasonable request of a body of thoughtless, don't-care-a-dash individuals, as far as the oonvenience of the public is concerned.

Although the happy gather ing was piesided over by a Chairman in the person of the President of the Institute (Mr. . G. H. Tempest), no formality was observed. The meeting was a free and easy one, and therefore all the more enjoyable. Mr. Haid wick had brought the committee together to have a friendly confad over matters in con nectio...

With the Wise. The call to religion is not a call to be bet ter than others, but to be better than yourself . — H. W. Be.ecb.er. With the vulgar and the learned, names have great weight ; the wise use a writ of inquiry into their legitimacy when they are advanced as authorities. — Zimmerman.

He is not poor that hath not much, but he that wants more. AVant lies in wishing. He lacks mo-t that desires most. He is richest who does not covet and desires least.
