THE EA1LWAY THAPT1C. Satisfactory Iletnrns. Both the ordinary and the holiday traffio on all lines has been satisfactory during the past week, being about up to the average of previous years. A large numbor of country residents who visited Sydney during the holidays have now returned to their homes, most of the country trains having been well filled during the past few days. The wool season is now prac tically over, and the wheat season has commenced. Large quantities of -wheat havo been arriving at Bathur3t during the week from country stations, the amount of grain produced in the western district showing a marked increase upon formet seasons. ______ra ? ?

PERSONAL. The first Mayor of Sydney was the Hon. George Thornton, M.L.C. Mr. Henry Baylis has for thirty-eight years been Police Magistrate at Wagga. Mr. Mayor Lees has represented Macquarie Ward in the City Council for 15 years. At the banquet to the Mayor, tho speaker most enthusiastically cheered was Sir Henry Parkes. Mr. Slattery's absence from politics will be a more noticeable loss to his party than to the State. Miss Geraldine Oliffo leaves England at onco to join the Brough-Boucicault Com pany as leading lady. Prank Sinifch and Finlayson, imprisoned for banking offences, will be released after serving anothor month. The country Press .pr.etty generally think Mr. Eeid is playing to tho pit in hia Labor Department proposals. The remains of the lato Alex.

MUNICIPAL AUDITORS' FEES. A Strange Defect iu the Municipal Act. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
MUNICIPAL AUDITORS' FEES. A. Strange Defect iu the Municipal Act. Another flagrant defect in the existing Municipal Act has been revealed by tho ; result of a case heard in the Parramatta Small Debts Court a few days since, when Andrew Menzies sued tho Borough Council of Kookwood for J;30 for services performed as an auditor. Mr. Gannon appeared for the deiendant borough, aud raised au ob jection that, under the Municipalities Act, plaintiff had no power..,to recover fees for auditing. There was no stipulation in tho Act that an auditor shall be paid ; but only for a Council, by express resolution, awarding any fees they considered adequate. Plaintiff said it was the usual practice throughout the colony to pay auditors; but the Bench held that plain tiif had no power to recover for such services, and gave a verdict for the defendant borough. It would be impossible to imagine anything more absurd as well as more unjust than such a law. We know nothing of the merits of the case, or wh...

SEWMAGE EATE GEIEYAN0E. SEWERAGE BATES WHERE THERE ARE NO SEWERS. The Water and Sewerage Board's Administration. AN INTEftYlE W WITH ME. BLOXflAM . Paying the Piper for Past Extravagance, A correspondent, a ratepayer of Erskine ville, in a letter to the editor of the Sunday Times last week, complaining of ' gross and oppressive injustice now being perpe trated by the Water Supply and Sewerage Board,' stated : ' On the side of the Borough of Erskineville on which I, in common with many other ratepayers, re side, the sewerage rate is demanded and enforced before the sewers are made, or even commenced,' In order to get tho other side of the question, a Sunday Times reporter saw Mr. Bloxham, secretary to the Board, upon this matter. ' The writer,' said Mr. Bloxham, who had read the letter previously, ' confuses the sewerage with the drainage rate.!' This drainage rate is the outcoma of the old Bystem of MILKING THE STATE COW AT EVEBY OPPOBTUNITY. The ratepayers, through their represen t...

Ihe service. PLAIN TALK ABOUT THE STATE DEPARTMENTS. Some Queer Tacts. uircomlocut™ extraordinary The Lands Department. Offices which shonld be Amalgamated. Lands, Mines, Agriculture — The Gangs— The Boss and the Cook. Pertinent Points. (By the 'Sunday Times' Commissioner.) In order to get a fair idea of the adminis tration of the lands of New South Wales the whole matter must be viewed with eyes unobscured with tho dust of mouldering precedents, for to the official mind, nar rowed and cramped by red tape technicali ties, the term land administration by no means covers the whole question. The occupations of agriculture, forestry, and mining are not supposed, officially, to have anything to do with laud; yet, although expenditure under all these varidtis heads is kept distinct from what is technically called ' laud administration,' all receipts arising from the occupation of land for any purpose are rightly included under the genoral term of ' annual land revenue,' Taking the figures...
READY FOR THE GRAVE. A Story of a Strange Disguise. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
EEADY FOE TEE GR1VE, A Story of a Strange Di3guise. ' We can't take Annie with us, of cours e,' said the young clergyman, glancing out into the yard of his lonely parsonage. ' I wonder if your sister ' ? ' Harry !' exclaimed his wife, reproach fully, ' Ada stay in this house, so far away from a neighbor, alone ?' 'Ofoourse not. What am I thinking of ?' echoed the Rev. Mr. Pearson, hur riedly ; ' I couldn't let any woman do that. Well, then, Annie must stay.' Annie was not a woman ; she was the servant girl. Notwithstanding this draw back she was as pretty a girl of 18 as one could desire to see — smart at her work, but rather more ignorant of life than1 is common with colonial girls. Therefore it never struck her any more than it did the selfish young couple not yefc reoovered from heir honeymoon isolation that ' there was any reason why she, a young girl, &hould not spend her master and mistress's three nays oi aosence atone in a couniry parsonage more than half a mile dist...
THE BANK OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Stormy Meeting of Shareholders. London, January 4. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
THE BAKK OE SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Stormy Meeting of Share holders. (' Sunday Times' Special Message.) London, January 4. The meeting of shareholders of the Bank of South Australia was of a very stormy character. Mr. Stewart, the official liqui dator, read letters received from Mr. Meldrum, manager at the time, and other persons, urging that the directors pUUUlll CAOltlOO UUUlrlul utci nufauvba luu-av by Melbourne managers. They alleged much of the Melbourne business was of a worthless character. Mr. Stewart also had letters which had been received from the Melbourne directors at the same time, which painted the condition of affairs in rosy colors. Mr. Arbuthnot, chairman of directors, Bald he did not fear inquiry into tho actions of the board. One of the shareholders said he would not be satisfied until the direc tors were held liable for their actions.
THOSE LARGE SLEEVES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
THOSE LARGE SLEEYES. From Paris comes a whisper that large sleeves for evening- wear are to be larger than ever. This is fortunate (says a London correspondent), as how few women, even beauty women, have beautiful arms. The present voluminous sleeve covers a multitude of sins. But women who have pretty arms will be tempted to wear shoulder straps and full sleeves coming low on the arm. I saw a pretty gown of white satin with such sleeves. The bodice was cut square and embroidered with gold ; the shoulder straps were of gold braid, the full sleeves of pale mauvechiffon. A sash of tbo same went round the waist, and was tied loosely at one side, falling in long ends to the bottom of the dress.
A STRANGE STORY OF A WIFE'S INFATUATION And a Husband's Generosity. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
A STRANGE STORY OF A WIFE'S INFATUATION And a Husband's Generosity. Lord Ktllach?, in the Court of Session, Edinburgh, heard evidence, in the action by Charles Lindsay Orr-Ewing, Newark Castle, Ayr, against his wife, the Hon. Beatrice Mary Leslie Ruthven, 46 Ebury Btreet, London. There was no appearance on behalf of the defendant, from whom the plaintiff seeks divorce. The plaintiff stated Lnac tno parties marnea in mtiti. ' There were two children of the marriage. Mrs. Orr-Ewing went to Worthing. In June last ho j'oined-her in London. She again went to Worthing in July, the plaintiff going north in his yacht. The defendant said she would join him by rail, but, in stead, sent him a telegram that she had missed her train at Leicester, and returned to London, and could not travel north for a weok. After he returned to London a friend made a communication to him about his wife and Lieutenant C. G-. Malcolm, of the Scots Guards. It came to this, Mrs. Orr-Ewino; had MISSED HEK TBAIN ON P...
THE JEW'S HARP. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
THE JEW'S HARPo Is the Jew's harp a musical instrument ? The question has been raised in the United States, for if it be only a toy it will be liable to another rate of import duty. Most people with delicate ears would pro bably be inclined to negative the idea that any music could be extracted from this implement. But tho axithonties are the other way, and Charles Eulen stein, who died only a short time ago at the age of over 90, was a great per former in his day. Eulenstein in London in 1827 gained a great reputation by play ing upon sixteen Jew's harps, aud he so delighted the then Duke of Gordon that he was induced during the next year to tour in Scotland, where, particularly in the Highlands, the Jew's harp is said to be still very popular. The name of the instrument is of course an absurd corruption of 'Jaws- harp ;' but in Germany, whore most of them are manufactured, the instruments ar« called ' buzzing irons.' Following up John Wesley's idoa, that thero was no reason why th...
A QUEER ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 6 January 1895
A QUEER ACT. Speaking the other day on the matter of a case against the Hunter River Water and Sewerage Board, Sir Julian Salomons, Q.C., said that the Act (which is on the lines of the Sydney Water and Sewerage Board Act; core much evidence or scissors and paste ; in fact, there were so many errors of omission that it looked as if a gust of wind had blown away several of the clauses and they had hot been missed. This about sums up the position. In practice the Act has been found so faulty that steps should be taken at once to amend it. That would be the most sensible way of dealing with the difficulties, instead of attacking the Board, which is sworn to administer the law as it is, with all its blemishes.
