OKeeffe, J's.P., Richard Simmons was charged with wilful trespass upon a travelling stock reserve, upon the information of Mr. E. V. Ffrench, inspector under the Public Watering Places Act. Mr. J. E. Mclntyre, solicitor, appeared tor trie defence, and raised an objection to the information which disclosed no offence under the Act. The owner of stock did not offend by trespassing : it was his stock. The Bench allowed the information to be amended and the case was proceeded with. Mr. E. V. French stated that he was the inspector appointed under the Watering Place3 Act, and on the 13th September last found 230 sheep trespassing upon the reserve, which he afterwards impounded. The sheep were the property of defendant. A witness supported the evidence, and stated he had seen the sheep upon the reserve at that time. Mr. Mclntyre asked the bench to dismiss the case, ...

SINGLETON. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 25 January 1894
SIHQlETOra. Illness op Mr. Charles Durham. ? Tha numerous friends of this highly-eBteemed gentle man will be sorry to learn that Mr. Durham is seriously ill, the state of his health having assumed an alarming aspect within the last few days. It appears tbat within the last fortnight Mr. Durham contracted a chill when returning from Sydney, bufc ueiuK an active strong man in the prime of life took no notice of it. Subsequently, however, measles of the depressed type developed, and the asfc news we heard about tke patient was that fever had supervened. Both Doctors Read and Bowman have been in daily attendance on Mr. Durham, and everything that medical science can otter is done for the patient. We sincerely hope that it may please the Almighty dispenser of events to preserve the life of this good man for his dear wife and children.

Appearing before the court were also Thomas Maloney and Hugh Degidan, two cabmen, charged with being accessories after the fact. . Detective Gouldor inti mated that he was nob prepared to proceed with the case. Accused were remanded till nest weok. It appears that Clarke told one of the officers that it was one of the greatest surprises he ever received in his life. He than ex plained that he carried a loaded revolver, not with the intention of discharging it but merely to brandish it. On being taken to the police station he freely confessed his guilt and made important statements. Although search haa been made for the stolen ...

SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894
SYDNEY BOUDOIR GOSSIP. [By ZaraH I have just the time to write my g0Bsip this week from Bowral before descending . the two thousand, feet or so of mountain to hot Sydney. Sitting in a large bow-window, with a lovely view of hill and valley before me, inspiration ought to be a matter of course.- The air here is delightful, and the undulating grassy country picturesquely timbered with eucalypti, which in their luxuriance of foliage do honour to Australia, offers many attractions for a summer holiday. Riding or driving along the well-kept roads is a pleasure, and the various towns and villages offer good accommodation and a certain amount of interest. It is not surprising, then, that the district is largely patronised by the wealthy residents of Sydney, and that they have built within short distances of each other handsome country homes, where they not only pass the summer months, but in many cases spend an odd week during the winter and spring. Following the main road from. Bowral one...

The Council was also asked to accord the same treatment to Mr. Walker's Reduction of Cost of Ligitation Bill. On the other hand, messages were received from the Council requesting the Assembly to proceed with the con sideration of the Disorderly Conduct Suppression Bill and the Medical Bill, and with the considera tion of the ...

GRAPES FROM THISTLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894
GRAPES FROM THISTLES. , Sir,— The old fallacy that ail the social ills which afflict mankind can become removed by legislative enactment- still finds followers, especially in Australia, where some of the New South Wales unionist shearers are voting a portion of the union tunas to aiding in the return of unionist members of Parliament. Of course they have a perfect right to do this if they think fit ; but if they think that in so doing they are preparing the way for an industrial millenium they are grievously mistaken. They may seek to fix by legislative enactment the hours and conditions of labour, rates of wages, and so forth, but the result will invariably be the same —failure. _ They cannot compel the pastoralist to conduct hie business on lines laid down by them selves, or in defiance of the laws of supply and demand. Five hundred years ago employers in England attempted what is now sought ^to be achieved by the Australian labourers — that of fixing the conditions and remunerati...
LATE NEWS BY CABLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894
LATE NEWS BY CABLE. The following messages are taken from the Herald : London, Jan. 24. London Truth reports that the accounts of the recent illness of H.K.H. the Princess of Walea wore ?xaggerated, but that nevertheless ifc is certain shat the Princess has decided to withdraw from society. The Bank of England has made no allotment of India Council bills this week. Tenderers offered 14 15-I6d. The India Council made a special allotment of a quarter of a lakh at 14 13-32d. It is anticipated that the trial of Jabez Spencer Balfour, the defaulting director of the Liberator Building Society, who has been arrested in the Ar gentine Republic, will result in startling disclosures, involving the prosecution of other perBona. It is al leged that letters are in existence showing that Bal four was making preparations for an inevitable finan cial crash five years ago. Jan. 25 : Jabez Spencer Bal f onr is contesting the legality of his arrest. Inspector Tonbridge, of Scotland Yard, will leave Lo...
THE CASSILIS ELECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894
THE CASSILIS ELECTORATE. Sib, — My attention has been called to your issue of Saturday, 13th January, in which your Merriwa correspondent supplies some information new to me. He says I am one of the coming candidates for the Rylestone electorate., and most unwarrant ably asserts ' That 1 wish to prop up the ok exploded fabric of freetrade, by the help of a land tax.' Now, as I object to be misrepresented, perhaps you will allow me to correct this Merriwa Solomon. Though from his hypothesis, he would seem to ignore the signs of the times, he cannot be ignorant that a bill to modify the American tariff strongly tending towards freetrade— is before Congress. After so many years restriction the American people seem tired of it. Germany and many of the Continental States, though oblized to cling to crotection for revenue to keep their immense armaments are entering into reciprocity treaties for the free interchange of many necessaries of life. Victoria is crying out for intercolonial fre...

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. MR. E. J. BOWLING AND WOMAN SUFFRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR. Mfi. E. J. BOWLING AND WOMAN SUFFRAGE. Sir, — Allow me, through the medium of your columns, in behalf of the women who have the interest or their sex arid the larger interests of humanity at heart, to thank ' E. J. Bowling' for his letter about Womanhood Suffrage. That he is not personally desirous for the extension of the franchise to women, makes the letter more remark able for the fairness of its tone. If men of the type of E. J. Bowling were the rule, rather than the exception, we should be less anxious for our rights. But doubtless, when the justice of our claim was seen, the franchise would be granted without any screaming from the sisterhood. Letters like those of 'Borneo' (wherefore '.[JEomeoP') unintentionally do more to advocate our claim than anything we can say for ourselves. Let us thank him also. A WORKING WOMAN. Jan. 24, 1894. Sir, — It goes without saying that your cor respondent, E. J. Bowling, has a very high opinion of himself, if nobody els...

Painting the nostrils with glycerine on a soFfc camel s hair brush, so far back as the passages will permit, will sometimes give great relief in cases of cold in the head. Dr. Galippo reports to the French Academy of Sciences, after eight years' investigation, that all stones, such as gravel, found in the human bodv Hfcf *C-£ ^y ,microbes. Microbes are the author _ of that chemical decomposition which results m calcareous deposits. Healthy organs may fv^ 5ese Parasites. for so long as the humours ot the body are in a normal state they produce no bad effects. When tho system becomes diseased the microbes produce the depoeits winch develope into gravel or stone. From human saliva Dr uaiippe haB produced stone mechanically.
