LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894

LATE GENERAL NEWS. At the request of Mr. Copeland, Sir George Dibba has notified Mr. Hindle that under the exceptional circumstances of the case he will ar range for the motion of which that gentleman has given notice, condemning the action of the Govern ment in reinstating Mr. Copeland, to come on for discussion on Wednesday. Mr. Eeid has declined to make the question a party one. Mr. Hindle states that he will bring the motion forward and leave members to deal with it as they think fit. bpeaking at the Burns anniversary banquet at Bathurst last night, Major-General Hutton said that if federation for defence was to be practically solved there should be a general defence scheme based upon some common ground of policy, an Army Defence Act common to all the colonies, an organisation to adapt the fine military forces of the colonies to the general scheme, and a federal regi ment of artillery which should unite all the present disjointed units of artillery in one regiment.

THE MINISTER OF LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894

THE MINISTER OP LANDS. Mb. Hindle 18 not well-advised in asking the Assembly to condemn the Government for the reinstatement of Mr. Copeland as Minister of Lands. There is in every conjuncture of affaire a time to speak and a time to be silent. ' The present ia the time to be silent in the Assembly about what everyone will allow is a lamentable affair. As we have already said, the conduct of. the Minister will in evitably be canvassed in the pending general election. Mr. Copeland cannot expect th«t his critics and his enemies will be silent, -and the indictment which may be preferred against the Government will embrace in its charges this aberration of the Minister. But to raise the question in the AsBambly now is to raise an ieaue upon which Mr. Hindle is not at all likely to succeed, and to initiate a discussion likely to be productive of more harm than good. Mr. Hindle is not likely to succeed. Already the House has practically ap proved of Mr. Copeland's reinstatement, and the l...

WALCHA. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894

miXHA. A Land Association has been formed here with the immediate object of obtaining relief for con ditional purchasers and lessees. Some figures were quoted to show the vas-t decrease in number and rnark'et value of stock, thus causing much difficulty , ? to those who -were under obligations to make regular payments on their lands. At the lasfc meeting it was resolved to request the Miniater for Lands to give relief by deferring all payments in C.P's. and C.L's. for two years, with interest at tho rate of 4 per cent, per annum. It is undoubtedly a fact that even amongat those who hold only mOdSraljU Utcflo, ^icnu uiuul'ic in c&pciicuucu ILL payment of instalments and rents at the present time, whilst by the scheme proposed many would get over the present depression and doubtless profit by the many object lessons in economy which have been forced upon most of us of late.

A Wholesale Poisoner. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894

A Wholesale Poisoner. The criminal type of human character, of whiclt the Borgias, the Marchiones3 of Brinvilliers, and Madame Lafarge offered such malignant illustra tions, is by no means extinct, it seems; for a trial has just terminated at Oporto, Portugal; not less remarkable for the series of atrocious crimes it brought to light than for the high social posimon ana great scientific attainments of the malefactor. This was a certain Dr. TJrbine de Freitas, professor of legal medicine and. of public hygiene in the Academy of Medi cine in that city, and author of several, esteemed treatises on vegetable alkaloids. His wife's father, Don Jose Antonio de Samaio, pos sessed a fortune valued ab .£160,000 before the late financial crisis, and Dr. Freita3 resolved upon secur ing this. To do bo, he devised and executed a suc cession of murders, planned with singular coolness, and perpetrated with a cynical disregard of all . moral restraint. Four lives stood between his wife and the inher...

TAREE. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 26 January 1894

TAREE. Since my last the weather has been somewhat cooler, with occasional light showers of rain, and at present rain is threatening and a downpour is imminent. Such, we hope, will be the case, as rain is rather badly wanted, the recent showors that fell at intervals being insufficient for the maize crops, which presented a gloomy prospect before rain came. They have now considerably revived, and look fairly well, giving promise of fair prospects to farmers during the coming season. The monthly meeting of the Taree Band of Hope took place on Monday evening last, and was well attended. Addresses were given by several gen tlemen, some of whom were present at the first meeting some twenty-five years ago. Numerous huu^h auu rucuiiuiouB were given, aiso some grauu lantern views, and the evening pasBed' off very pleasantly. Melons are grown in abundance this year in all the surrounding districts, some of the largest weighing to 501bs. On the Lower Manning a com pany of mischievous ' night...
