EARLY CLOSING. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
EARLY CLOSING. In these days of small profits and of humane sentiments — when an effort is being made to minimise the wear and tear of business on men and material — is it not possible to institute (or re institute) some local reform as regards the hours of labour of shop employees. Can we not restore to Parramatta an early-closing system ? It is generally agreed that (except, perhaps, on Saturday evenings) the business done after night fall scarcely pays expenses. But as a matter of bet there is no reason worth mentioning why the little business now done after 6 p.m. could not be jqst as well done during daylight — or at least before 6 o'clock. There is no force in the contention that competition foroes long hours on shop-owners or I their employees. It is not competition — but publicopinion — thatregulates the hours of labour. For, clearly, competi tion may be and is restrained within limits, and these limits are determined either by legal enactment, or, preferably perhaps, by pub...

KELLYVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
K kT.T.y v 1 1 .T.T1 Kellyville to the front I We have daily evidence of this in the oart loads of building material passing up the road. Mr. Matthew Davis, we believe, is now building a nioe cottage on his portion of the Elphinstone Estate. We however require rain very badly, as water is getting very scarce ; and the orchards, between the frost and drought, am not looking as well as they might. Advantage is being taken of digging the dried-up watlrholes to deepen them, in anticipation of the much-required rain. This is all the more necessary, as the army of ' Juven ile Good Templars' is on the inorease.

DURAL. The Elections. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
DUBAI.. The Elections. The election being over, we have settled down into our usual quiet groove ; although there was very little excite ment here during the campaign. Mr. Garrard's absolute majority was antici pated from the start, and, although he did not poll as many at Dural as at the previous election, his supporters seemed quite satisfied with the general result. If they are not, they ought to be I There can be no doubt Mr. O'Conor's land tax ' bogie ' scared a few ; but he will have to make great improvement in his poli tical ideas before he can hope to get the inside running of our present member. He says that Mr. Garrard has had fifteen years' experience, and, if he had the same, he would be ' up shoulders with him.' ' Perhaps so,' some one said, ' but what would be doing in that fifteen years, while you were getting tbe necessary experience ? '

Polioe-Sergeant James Robertson, at present stationed at Parramatta, had a paralytio seizure on Saturday evening last while visiting some friends in Macquarie-street He was at once removed to the Distriot Hospital, where the medical officers gave all possible attention to the case ; bnt, up to the time of going to press yesterday (Friday), without any marked benefit to the sufferer. The patient's left side la affected, the result of hemorrhage on the brain, and he is unable to speak or to show more than the lowest Indications of conscious ness.

Sherbrooke Electors and the Land Tax. TO THE EDITOR OF THE FREE PRESS [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
Sherbrooke Electors and the Land Tax. To TBE EutTOB OF TBE FB£E pKESti Sir, I believe that many small land -holders | in Sherbrooke voted for Mr. Garrard and the taxation proposals because of the very liberal exemptious and the smallness of the tax. Mr. Garrard, in his speeches, advocated the land tax proposals, and their details in sueh flowery and forcible language (not veir forcible arguments) that many electors, unless they thought out the whole matter carefully for themselves, would be led to support them. This land-tax proposal is the thin end of the wedge, which, before many years, may be driven home, and then scores of eleotors may regret the vote they gave at the recent election. We have in this colony, as elsewhere, the so. ; called Labour party, the Single-takers, and others working hard for a heavy land-tax. The i preseut proposal its largely the result of their work. Will they likely rest satisfied with tbe tax of a Id ? Certainly not. When the Gov. ernment bring iu the...

Nr. B. J. Anderson's Accident News continues .to arrive of the satis factory progress towards recovery of the victim of the late accident, Mr. B. J. Anderson. It is said that when the ones of the injured man were heard is suing from the Tannery at the time his hand was being crashed to palp in the cruel rollers, those close by feared that someone was literally being torn to pieces in the machinery. Though the accident was sad as it was, it is realised with thankfulness, by most of our folk, that it was a mercy the young man's arm was not torn right out.

SMITHFIELD Bobberies. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
SMITHFEELD. Bobberies. On Monday night, some evilydis posed person, or persons, broke into the premises of our well-known storekeeper, Mr. Carter, and got away with a large quantity of tobacco and.some cash. The . tobacop had only lately been got in.; and over. 25lbs were carried away. Strange to say, the burglars did not take all tbe valuable goods they got «near, perhaps because some of the said goods were wrapped up in brown paper, and there was nothing on the outside of the parcels to indicate what was inside. A. few other small goods were removed. A s\mi of money— about £5— had been left in the cash drawers, and the thieves tookthat, of course. Entrance wasgaincd into the store by force, a shutter being broken down, and the glass of the .window shattered. The matter was reported to the local constable ; but up to the time of writing, the offender or offenders had not been caught, Some of our residents think that these rob beries — which have become rather too frequent of late —...
