THE GLENBROOK TRAGEDIES. BUTLER'S CONFESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 1 May 1897
THE GLENBROOK TRAGEDIES. -* BUTLER'S CONFESSIONS. Interesting details have l>een famished in regard to the voyage from San Francisco. During the trip Butler spoke freely of his misdeeds, and seemed to glory in them. De said that he bad 14 murders and 21 big rob beries to tell about. He made a partial confes sion as to a number of murders committed in Western Australia. His life's story would provide one of the mo t sensational narratives ever penned if he could be believed. He asserts than when going to school he killed a boy, and that 10 years ago he should have been hanged for the murder of his "rife. Western Australia was a happy hunting ground in connexion with his reminiscences. He always gave daik hint6 respecting that colony, but never descended to details, and left his hearers to imagine that he was a sort of war-engin > over there, maliciously slaying penp'e wholesale. He distinctly told the Sydney detectives that he had murdered a German. Butler is a splendidly built...

AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 1 May 1897
AN INDESCRIBABLE SENSATION. To be easily described a thing' most have clear outlines and unmixed colors. In other words it must be simple. A rent in one's olothin?, a boil on one's body, a tumble while walking', the shape of a box, «fcc , are easily set forth in words. On the contrary the complex and comprehensive things puzzle the mind and take the meaning from language. It was for this reason that Miss SaMaa Mitchell, alluding to an experience of illness, Bays :-"At this time there came upon me an indescribable sensation. It was as if the powers of life were going to fail me, and I should sink down without help, as a ston? sinks in water. Yet in saying this I convey no adequate idea of the nature of that feeling. I hope I shall never have it again. " The illness which led to it began in the spring of 1892. My health appeared to give way all at once. I found myself tired, heavy, and feeble. My appetite was poor, and after eating I had much distress at the stomach and pain at the ch...

CRIMINAL SESSIONS. THE OUTRAGE BY HALF CASTES AT BEVERLEY. TWO MEN SENTENCED TO DEATH. Perth, Thursday. At the Criminal Sittings of the Supreme Court on Wednesday two half castes, Windar and Michael, and one native, named Badgin, were charged with committing a rape on a young woman named Mary Ann Ellis at Beverley. The evidence disclosed that the prosecutrix and her mother had walked to Beverley to church, and were returning when, about a mile out of town, they were met by the accused. The mother was dragged in one direction in the bush and the daughter in another. The latter was ravished by two of the men and then the one who had taken the mother away came up and com- mited a similar offence. The girl's mother is an old woman over 70 and she said that the man who took her away ravished her. The jury found Windar and Badgin guilty of rape and Michael of assault with intent, but recommended them to mercy on the ground that they were practically savages. Windar and Badgin were sentenc...

The Advertiser SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1897. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 1 May 1897
SAT ÜB DAY, MAY 1, 1897. THE deputation of merchants and im porters that waited upon the Collector of Customs on Wednesday last had a genuine grievance to lay before him. It appears that for some time past it has been the practice at Fremantle, with thc sanction of the Collector, to allow the importers of potatoes at that port IO per cent, on the weight of potatoes as shown on the invoice to cover loss bj depreciation of quality and damage. According to the Customs Act the Colr lector has only power in the event of goods imported being damaged to make an allowance to the extent of the actual damage, and he has not the power to order that there shall be a redaction of the duty on any article imported if it has not sustained damage. What he has done at Fremantle is to vary the tariff in favor of Fremantle so that the im porters at that port pay a duty of only 18s per toa on potatoes while importers at Albany pay 2Qs a ton. If aa im? porter at Fremantle imports tea tons of potatoes he ...

THE GENERAL ELECTIONS. Esperance, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 1 May 1897
THE GENERAL ELECTIONS. Esperance, Friday. Mr. Harney s position is considered to be imploring. The election generally is recog nised as a contest between Harney and Con nolly. It is not likely that Austin will poll many. Perth, Friday. Thirteen members have now been returned all ministerialists. The latest of these in clude : Mr. Hubble for Gascoyne. Mr. A. Y. Hassell for Plantagenet. Mr. T. F. Quinlan for Toodyay. Mr. Harper for Beverley. Mr. Qainlan beat Mr. Clarkson by 201 votes to 115. His.return over Mr. Clarkson caused immense surprise. It is said that the latter owes his defeat to the letter of recom mendation which the Ptemicr gave him a few months back. Mr. Harper beat Mr. Dempster by 38 votes. The Yilgarn nominations on Thursday were Cohn and Oats ministerialists and G. Leckie opposition. The Returning Officer for the Plantagenet District proceeded to Broomehill on Thurs day to receive nominations for the district. Mr. Hassell, the member for the district aUo went up. The ...
SPOTTING NEWS. THE FOOTBALL SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 1 May 1897
SPORTING NEWS. - THE FOOTBALL SEASON. Last week a meeting was held in Albany for the formation of a football and it was decided to establish a club called the Albany Wanderers. Members of this club come from all parts of the town and in these cir- cumstances it may be difficult to get mem- bers to fo:m a strong competing clnb. In these circumstances we suggest that the foot ball players could consider the advisable- &nbsp; ness of forming ward clubs. The effect of forming ward clubs in cricket has been ex- cellent and there seems no reason why the same result should not follow in football. Without the territorial distinction the public can take very little interest in the games, whereas with a division into wards not only the players but also the barrackers will be &nbsp; separated into camps each eager for victory. North, East and West teams could very easily be formed whereas with teams formed indiscriminately, one club might have such a preponderance of talent as ...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN CONTINGENT. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 4 May 1897
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN CONTINGENT. The men forming the West Â astral ian con'ingeñt for London for the Jubilee arrived on Saturday morning, and were quartered at the Town Halj, thc lc wer hall being set apart for their use. The officers with them were Captain Campbell, Lieut. Hobbs, and Lieut. Strickland. As a selected military party the men are decidedly disap pointing. The artillery men are weedy, and several of the infantry are vi y ill-shajen for soldiers. Neither artillery nor infantry will, we trust, be accepted in London as samples of the average manhood of Western Australia-a country which for its men probably surpasses any other British country in the world. I he contingent is not up to the standard of a volunteer corps in a big city at home, and certainly not one-half of the men are set-up. The defects of the party have probaoly. arisen from the harry in which the arrangements had to be made. Members of tne party said that unsuitable men had been chosen and good men left be h...
