A Women J.P. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

A Women J. P. The Crown law officers of New Zealand are engaged in solving the problem — Can a woman be a justice of the peace ? By virtue of her office the lady who has been elected Mayor of Onehungo should be appointed a justice of the peace, and the law officers have been asked to advise if there are good and sufficient reasons why the usual course should not be followed. It is believed that there are no legal impediments, and once the precedent is established many more ap pointments of women as justices of the peace are likely to follow. 'There aint no dingoes now,' said the narrator. ' When I was a boy, ah! then they were thick. I was after a mob o' scrubbers up in the ranges and my mare bolted, one ran into a tree, oroue n9r necK and fell atop of me. I lay jammed upon her, with both thighs and three of my ribs broken. How I was to get away I didn't know, but the dingoes came in the night and ate up every bit of the mare, and in the morning I was able to crawl to the station. M...

The Husbands They Look For. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

The Husbands They Look For. flow women do differ in regard to the kind of men fchey want to marry. Indeed, there ' seem to be very few who have succeeded in getting the one fancy hud pointed for them. No doubt they all had their minds made up to marry an ideal, but when their fates came along the ideal was forgotten, and is only re called as an ideal fancy. With some it may lie serious. For instance, those who abandon their ideals'are married to rakes or worthless creatures in the guise of men. These unfor tunates often recall the husbands they had in the mind's eye or the worthy young men whom they had snubbed because they were poor. ' I am an old uiaid,' writes a corres pondent, ' or at least I am classed with this set. My years fully justify the younger public in giving me a back seat. I had an ' ideal. So fully was I impressed with the idea that a tail dark-haired, handsome man would come to me that I would not allow myself to care for auy one of the gentlemen who were anxious t...

SUNDRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

SUNDRY NOTES. The thermometer played sad pranks during the Christmas holidays. It ran up so high that, like the fellow in the railway accident or the dynamite explosion, it seemed as if it. would never come down. I don't know what figure the mercury reached. Some say 105; others 110; hut judging from personal ex perience I should say it was nearer 150 degrees than anything else. Hotter days than Sunday and Monday I have rarely ex perienced, and who can understand what; that means when I have known the mercury! burst the glass, after registering 115 or 120; in the water bag. It was a clinging, moistj sort of heat, not a breath of wind wus stir-j ring and it took all one's time to keep himself] from melting away and becoming the prover-i l.ial grease pot. If one could only have taken; off his flesh and dodged about in his boues' there might have been some enjoyment of the holidays. As it was, the heat spoiled th^ sport of most of us. How can the festive turkey or the mammoth pudding h...

The Prorogation and its Constitutional Aspect. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

The Prorogation and its Constitutional Aspect. ? + ? Speaking at Mount Kembla on the political situation, Mr. G. H. Reid. M.P., said : — 1 . ' Sir George Dibbs treated the As sembly as an ill-bred superior treats an offensive flunkey. By a stroke of the Minis terial pen, too huiriedly endorsed by the supreme custodian of law and good govern ment, our political institutions were involved in chaos. The business of Parliament was destroyed, the place of the people's repre sentatives in the Constitution ignored, and the country committed to the tender mercies of a defeated and desperate Ministry, who proposed, haviug kicked members of Parlia ment out of the halls of legislation, to govern and to incur obligations, not according to law, but according to the whims of a dic tator — a new form of sovereignty for an Australian community supposed to be safe guarded by an Imperial representative of the Queen's authority and Government. From Monday next, nil the solemn statues pre scribing that...

Teams v. Railway. A FEW WORDS IN EXPLANATION. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

Teams v. Railway. A FEW WORDS IN EXPLANATION. In our last issue appeared a brief article stating that the storekeepers, of Parkes were entering into negotiations to have their goods conveyed to and from Molong railway statiou by team, iu consequence of the high rates th» Commissioners were chargiug for. carriage on the railway. Two of our Parkes contem- . poraries (the Independent and Examiner) deny the truth of our statement; but we are in a position tostate that, with one sltahtexceb ? . . O k tion, the paragraph appearing in lask Satur day's Express is quite correct. The 'infoiiuation was supplied us, first of all, by a 1 very reliable gentleman, who was acquainted by a responsible Government official of cer tain advice the latter had received from the representative at Parkes uf a firm who do an extensive business with the railways. Believing the statement of our informant to be well-founded, wei penned the paragraph ' in question' only a short time before going to . press ; but...

The Weather. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

The Weather. The weather experienced in Molong . up to Thursday was very oppressive, and the change which occurred that evening was., most welcome. In the afternoon, the sky was somewhat cloudy, but at dusk, large black clouds began (o gather and the diataut peels of thunder and the faint glimmevs of flashes of the electric fluid betokened that a storm was not far ,-ff. About eight o'clock a strong wind sprung up, and shortly after wards the patter of drops . of , light falling rain were heard on the roofs. The thunder became much louder and the lightning more vivid, and in the couise of a short time the rain came down in torrents. The storm in creased in violence as the minutes passed by, and for over a quarter of an hour it was terrific.' The; rain, ' accompanied by some ; small hail, fairly tumbled down again, while the lightning was exceedingly vivid, and the force of the tremendous claps of thunder shook almost every place in town. Thestrp* i gutters were overflowing, and the l...

A Shrewd Guess. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

A Shrewd Guess. 'Whenever there was to be an examination Bt school little black Sammy' generally had, a sudden attack of illness. This time, how ever, his memoiy turned traitor, and he found himsolf an unwilling victim. The questions were unusually hard that day and Sammy felt that he was doomed. His only hope was that the teacher would not call him up; but even this began to vanish and when at last he heard his name, Sammy rose ?with the air of a martyr. ' Now, Sammy,' began the teacher, 'I want you to tell me in which battle Lord Nelson was killed.' Sammy waa in despair, but he must prove himself equal to the emergency. ' Did you say Lord Nelson ?' he said cautiously. ' Yes,' . ' Which battle ?' 'Yes. In which battle was he killed]'. 'Wal,' said Sammy, with apparent sur prise at such an easy question, ' I specs it must er he'n his last.' j

How About the Land? [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

How About the Land ? To the Editor: Sir,— One of the most serious results of party strife iu this country in the. careless manner in which the nil ini poitant question of land legislation 'has been treated by .successive governments. Al though land settlement, Loth pastoral and agricultural, forms the basis of all our pro gress and orosneiitv. it has been system atically muddled in such a way that neither the squatters, the farmers or the selectors are satisfied. So far as the squatters and the selectors were concerned it has been the game of 'pull, baker ; pull, devil,' and nothing else. Had the unalienated lands of the State been divided into two classes — pastoral and agricultural, and these, in turn, sub divided for sale or lease according to the requirements of the different classes of sheep breeders and farmers, the existing obstacles to settlement would long since halve dis appeared. But is it too late to do this with the lands still unalienated? Ten acres of good orchard lan...

New Year's Eve in Molong. [Newspaper Article] — Molong Express and Western District Advertiser — 6 January 1894

There is apparently no diminution in the interest the public takes in the time-honoured custom of seeing the old year out and tha' new year in, and although to the more , thoughtful the occasion is one fraught with -j a good deal, of seriousness, to many it has . ; simply passed into an opportunity for : merri- :! ment, if nothing worse.

TOf^oS OF THE WEEK; At the present time, with'smgle electorates and the abolition of the £40 deposit, so valu^ able a diKci iiiiinatot iiv past elections, it is surprising and often abusing to hear who are intending candidates for this or that con stituency. That tliere'are to be found men tiied with un ami-i-ion to serve the .Slate as ' law-makers' is yood for the State; but it is apparent to the honest critic of these men that for the largest number of theni have: ij greater aspirations than ability. in all I walks of life,' fitness for the position sought' is the first matter of consideration. Let any fl man apply for any position, be it high or low; professional or mechanical, and the fitst thing ' j needed of him is that he produce credentials; and give satisfactory proof of his capabilities to fill the position.
