GREAT STORM IN AMERICA.

JAVANESE LABOR FOR SAMOA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
JAVANESE LABOR FOR SAMOA. Ne#s to hand by the latest mails states that the Gtrman Governor o£ Samoa was to leave the Islands about the end of December on a six months-' 'holiday trip to Germany. He would pro bably catch the 'Frisco mail steamer which left here on December 20, and would proceed by her to San Francieco. During his absence the Chief Justice of Samoa will occupy his position aa Acting Governor. The Governor, while he has been in Samoa, has found the labor question a very serious difficulty. The natives will not work, and the severe restrictions upon Englishmen prevent them from employing native labor from neighboring islands. He intends to urge upon the German Govern ment the desirability of importing Javanese labor into Samoa. The Javanese have declared them selves wiling to work, but the traders and Im porters cannot undertake the expense of carrying them to the islands, and he considers the German Government should take some measures to assist to bring labor from Jav...

BILLINGTON: A FAMOUS HANGMAN.; — ■> (FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) &lt;! V LONDON*, December 20.—Mr. William Billing- ) ton. whose death I see reported as the result of ) a chill caught at the execution of a whilom ( friend, one M Kenna. at Manchester, is the ? only membef of the honorable profession of ^ public executioners to die in office since the s century began, and he was the fourth in the \ line of succession to John.

THE SENTINEL LIZARD. A QUEER BEPTILE. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
THE SENTINEL LIZARD. A QUEER BEPTILE. &lt; One of the most curious reptiles in the world &lt; is the so-ca!lled sentinel lizard of Guiana, this ( name being given to it because It hisses loudly ( whenever it discovers a mttle-enake or a croco- &lt; dile. The authorities of the Museum of Natural History in Paris were extremely delighted when they received word some time ago that M. Mer waert, a leading official in French Guiana, was sending them a fine specimen, and were correo- &lt; pondingly disappointed on opening the box to find ! the lizard dead. &lt; This lizard was more than 4ft. In length. If it ( had reached the museum alive It is thought likely &lt; that it would have survived for several years, ( as it could easily have been supplied with appro- / priate food, such as eggs, chopped meat, and / young birds. 3 The natives of Guiana Slay that the flesh of the ] sentinel lizard is very savory, and the few Euro- J peans who have t...
COST OF THE BRITISH STORM. COUNTRY'S LOSS ESTIMATED AT A MILLION POUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
COST OF THE BRITISH STORM. • COUNTRY'S LOSS ESTIMATED AT A MILLION POUNDS. A great storm raged over Great Britain In the early part of December. What has been the amount of the country's loM through it? asks the "Daily Express." It is not only through the breakdown of the telegraph wires that great loss has occurred, al though thousands of pounds must have been lost on that account. The delay which hundreds of business men suf fered from must represent a total loss of a hun dred thousand pounds. The railway companies were compelled to em ploy hundreds of men for signalling purposes along the lines, so that the extra wages paid by all the companies would mean a huge sum if added together. Then there is the bill for damages to houses, palingis, chimney stacks, and roofs to be considered. In the rural districts hundreds of sheep and cattle have perished, and the loss Indirectly affects the farmers in other ways. In the coast towns there will be thousands of pounds wanted to rebuild sha...

Books Worth Reading. OR TALKED ABOUT. —♦— The newest books available this week contain at least two winch all lovers of really good fiction will devour eagerl". "The Man from Glengarry," by R. Connor, and "The Velvet Glove," by H. Seton Merriman, both in the cheap editions. Both authors are well known, Connor principally by hie "Sky Pilot." and Merriman by "With Edged Toole," "Roden's Corner," "The Isle of Unrest," and a host of others equally good. Writing on Mr. Connor's latest work, Mr. Gil bert Parker, who ought to be a good judge, says in the "Bookman":—"I have had a great deal of pleasure in reading 'The Man from Glengarry.' I will not say that all parts of the book gave me equal satisfaction, or that I think the construction and the characterisation are very well done. Mr. Connor has sentiment, feeling, rightmindedneas, snd an eye for dramatic cffect. One thing, how ever, he has not learned, and that is how to select those things that are salient—scenes and incidents which pr...

ONE INVASION FOILED. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
ON* INVASION FOILED. So far as the cycle trade is concerned, the Ame ricans made a big attack, and .have gone away without leaving any appreciable mark. A lot of money wa« spent by them, and very little profit indeed was taken away, while the English makers learned from the Americans a great deal that they knew on production, organisation, distribution, and advertising methods, and in the end were in all likelihood the gainers rather than the losers by the American invasion v Owing to our stupid neglect of the colonial and many foreign markets the American is la an altogether different oositi/ eUewhere. -"Cjrclia*." i
EXTRAORDINARY WILL STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
EXTRAORDINARY WILL STORY. Ten months ago a Fife (Scotland) hermit named Johnstone died apparently intestate, leaving property worth over a million sterling. His nephew, Lieutenant Maitland M'Gill Cricliton. took possession as heir-at-law, and assumed the uncle's name. On December 14 last a will, dated 1869, was found tightly sewn in the dress of a lady who died some three years ago. The will , purports to have been> drawn by the late Mr. Johnstone, and the dress in which It was found had passed into the possession of the deceased lady from an aunt who died some 25 years ago. The finding of this will is likely to very materially affect Lieutenant Crichton's posi tion, for, although the estate was entailed, the movable estate very largely exceeds in value the heritage.
The First Test Match. WHAT "RANJI" SAID ABOUT IT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902
The First Test Match. WHAT "RANJI" SAID ABOUT IT. Ranjltsinhjl was interviewed in London on the •uccess of Mr. MacLaren's team at Sydney in the first test match. Asked for an opinion as to the result of the natch, "Raiiji" replied:—"I am very surprised at the result. It was a very happy surprise. It exceeds the expectations of everybody, even those who had the fullest faith in the team. "Mr. MacLaren's side has shown its superiori ty over the other side in this game in eveiy department. Tho only department in which I personally expected them to excel the Aus tralians was in the fielding. With the possible exception of Blythe, there is no weak spot in the team as far as fielding is concerned. "The remarkable execution done by the bowl ing has astonished me beyond everything. Of course, Barnes I did not know much about. Braund, I knew, would be useful. Blythe, I thought however, would not be a great success. The one man I fully expected to do justice to himself and his English reputat...
