Drama of the Bible. On Monday evening a lecture was given by Mr. G. E. A.

He considered that it wan invested with false sentiment, which suoceeded in - rendering it popular, but that in point of fact its tendenoy was to prostitute the noblest powers of man kind, and to render them incapable of right and early action. In bis opinion no trnly religious persons were frequenters of theatres as they were at present bonducted. ' But while they gave up their thoughts to the theatrical' craze of the day, the greatest drama ever written appeared to have entirely escaped their n...

Current Items. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 February 1885

Current items. We have repeatedly called attention to . the state of (he footpaths in Elking ton Park leading to the corporation baths, but although the matter has come under the attention of the Council no progress has been made with the work, and it is still a very precarious job to; get to the baths with uninjured feet, especi ally tor lames, vv e nope me question will again crop up at the next Council meeting. Numerous sportB are being held at the baths by the; Baimain Swim ming Club, and the attendance of the i public at them is to a certain extent cheoked by the bad approaches, besides the revonue of the lessee being inter ered with. The newly appointed Mayor has not enjoyed his office long before a very un pleasant duty has been thrust upon him. We refer to the 'HBmissing of a portion of the numerous corporation day labour ers. The low state of the boioiigh finances and consequent necessity of curtailing expenses has for some time past been discussed by the aldermen, and at o...

MR. GLADSTONE AND THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 February 1885

MR. GLADSTONE AND THE WAR. .. . In our issue of the 1 4th instant, we / . said that ' if any further proof were re . quired of the vacillating imbecility of the. Home Government, surely the state .. 'of affairs wliioh has culminated in the J 'death of that brave and gallant soldier, whose life was undoubtedly sacrificed to the half-hearted incompetency of the Gladstone Government, is enough to convince the English people-that those ? Y' .who hold the helm of State are fast ^hiding their veBsel on the quicksands.' These remarks may seem severe. We have 'often expressed respect, and even --«?' admiration for Mr. William Ewart Gladstone. . He began life as a Tory, or j-..!- as it is now the fashion to call that : ;;.Y V antiquated fossil, a ' Conservative.' As such, he labored in the Tory or Gon . _ servative ranks for some yearelending all ' his influence, or what wasjof more conse quence, all his splendid intellect and his unrivalled powers of oratory, in defence ' of the exclusive n...

Correspondence. BALMAIN CEMETERY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 February 1885

Correspondence BALMAIN CEMETERY. j TO THE EDITOR. Dear Sik, — -'Kindly allow me through your eolumcs to draw attention to the ntter apathy shewn by the proprietors of the Baimain Cemetery in allowing it to get into and remain in such a deplorable condition as it is now. Surely it is not too much to expect that the walks should be kept neat and tidy, and that a few flowers and shrubs should adorn the re served spaces now occupied only by long grass and weeds. A little tasteful decoration of this kind would do much to dispel the gloom which naturally clings to such a place. I believe it would be a difficult matter to find another cemetery doing service for so large a popula tion presenting such a desolate and woeful as pect. Hoping the company will soe fit to act a little more in harmony with the feelings of nature and the requirements of civilization, I am, Yours, &c.. A MOURNER.

Complimentary Banquet. [Newspaper Article] — Balmain Observer and Western Suburbs Advertiser — 21 February 1885

Complimentary Banquet. In these days of strikes and of ill-will between masters and men, it is a pleasure to record a complimentary banquet given by employees to their employers. Suoh a thing is rare, and its rarity makes it all the more notioeable and commendable. When men continue in the same employ for years, and the relationship is found not omy sausiaccory irom a ousmess pome ot view, but leads to mutual esteem and respeot,'it shows a very desirable state of. things. It is evident that this feeling prevails between Messrs. Kelly, Brown and Goddard, the well-known contractors, and their workmen. Mr. Goddard has just been elected Mayor of Macdonaldtown, and the firm have lately undertaken some large eontraots, It was therefore thought a fitting opportunity for such an expres sion of kindly feeling. The banquet took place at the Macdonaldtown Council Chambers last Thursday night, about fifty persons being present, Mr. Gibbes, M.L.A., was finable to be present, being in Melbourne j...

GOSSIPING CORNER. ' Let me like a soldier fall.' Excuse me, Mr. Editor, I'm a loyal and patriotic subjeot .of Her Majesty, but I'm not fool enough to go to tho Soudan to fall. I can do that in many of the holes in the Bai main streots. Since, Mr. Dalley, conceived the idea of sending a iorco to mo oouuan no neip .' crippled ' England, there has been . no thing elso talked about on change, in the parlors, in the office, in the streots, all, and oven in many of our homes, than our soldiers and the Soudan. ' In faot it seems to be the highest ambition of an Austra lian youth to go to his death like a soldier. Well, I admire the patriotism, and would almost/ feel inclined to go myself if I saw Mr. Dalley in the front rank. Oh, no, he knows bettor than to go to the Soudan and get his life simmered away under Africs boiling sun, doing Uarnson duty.
