THE CATTLE NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

THE CATTLE NUISANCE?5 To THE EDIIOK. DEAS SIE,-I see by the report of thfc . District Council meeting last week tba. the vexed question of cattle and horse straying in the township is to be con sideral at their next meeting, and, as-1 ~ MD myself sn owner of stock, I would like to make a few remarks on the matter. I will not attempt to deny that the nightly congregations of animals at the corners of our streets are a nuisance to pedestrians ; but can yon show me where any alternative comes in. It is mighty easy for 'the Government Resi- dent to write to the Council and say that the cattle ought to be kept out of the township, and it is likewise an easy matter for the Council to command owners of stock to keep their animals outside the settled portion of the town ; * but it must be borne in mind that cattle will make for wherever there m water, and also to anv place where there is a ; chance cf getting rid of the insect pest with which theyare troubled so much. However, I do not wish...

He was shot. Hainan's prize to colonial scullers, on the Nepean was a Maltese cross in 18-carat gold. Cannon, the American Athlete, recently lifted 1250 lbs. Exactly 130 lbs. over half-a-ton.

Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

Political. When Dan O'Connor, in the Assembly, recently, quoted Sterne, a lot of people soddenly thought of ox-tail soap. The English press generally concur in the idea that Bismarck would serve bis country by retir- ing from the Prussian Ministry. The Brisbane people have put on record a firm, but not bombastic, protest against the de- portation of French criminals tc the South Pacific. Mr. George Thomson, of New Zealand, has been allowed by Her Majesty the Queen tore tain the title of "Honorable." We publish this item to show how minute are some of thc duties of sovereigns. The English House of Commons declined to adjourn on receipt of news of the death of Prince Leopold. Mr. Gladstone said there was no pre- cedent for such an adjournment, and he refused to create one. The last English postal returns showed an increase of -£430,000, mainly through the intro- duction of the parcel post system. This is an item for colonial governments to note.

Scientific. The Pennsylvanian coal mines pat out last year over 30,000,000 tons. Russia sent 165,000 political offenders to Siberia during the last ten years. The frequent movement of railway trains diminishes diseases in malarial stricken districts. Returns show that 1 in every 2878 cases, of chloroform is fatal, while ether is only fatal once in very 23,000 cases. Forty per cent of the Russian soldiers, and possibly the Bussian people, have their teeth affected by dental cares. London has more than three times the population of Berlin. TheiBussian capital has a population of only 880,000. The North Pacific Railroad Company have in use an excavator capable of turning out 1300 cubic yards of earth a day. Anotherjrttempt has been made to dyna- mite the monument at Bockland (Ñ.Y.), which marks the spot where Major Andre, an English spy, was executed in 1780.

SCANDAL IN THE HAREM. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 20 June 1884

SCANDAL IN THE HAREM. The wildest excitement prevails in Con- stantinople, and palace and diplomatic circles have sustained a shock unequalled since the tragic death of Sultan Abdul Aziz. The present monarch, who has been pictured as an uncommonly mild-mannered Turk, is beside himself with rage, and Stamboul trembles at the echoes of his anger. The cause of all this commotion, which has turned the Queen of Bosphorus as completely topsy-turvy as it could be if the victorious Mahdi were at her gates, is simply a pretty widow. One year ago she was the bride of Kiazim Bey, who had been First Secretary of the Palace, but was then out of office and living in a palace opposite Scutari surrounded by every luxury that wealth .could provide, including a harem, of which the heroine Qf the present escapade was the acknowledged queen. Eiazim was gathered to his fathers some months past and his widow has since made the most of the comparative freedom which Mussulman practice has lately accorded t...
