Was it a Hoax? ADELAIDE, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
Was it a Hoax? ADILAXDW, Monday. A man named Stephenson, working at - A. M. Simpson and Sons made a state , ment: to Brock's pyrotechnical manager and Mr. J. Creswell that he overheard the concpfion of a plan for robbing the latter as he passed from the Adelaide Oval with the takings of Friday night's performance, which, aa secretary, he would hold. In this enterprise the local robben were to be joined by " Flash " Harry, who waa expected to arrive from Melbourne by Friday morning's express. The arrange- ment wa» that between the oval gates and the main road, where the thick trees cause deep shadows, the robbery "was to to be committed by force. The detectives, however, found that Harry did not arrive; so Mr. Creswell with Brock's manager left the oval as usual on Friday night driving, but holding cocked loaded revolvers ready for use. They had also sent the money on beforehand. No attack was then at- tempted, nor on Saturday night, when the same precautions were taken. Not- withsta...

STRAY NOTES. BISHOP ULLATHORNE. [Newspaper Article] — Barrier Miner — 25 March 1889
STRAY NOTES. BISHOP ÚLLATHORííE. Ir may not".- bo generally known that j Bishop Ullathorne, of whose death at a I very advanced age the cable has just; apprised us, was the first ecclesiastic with authority over the Roman Caaholics of this colony. He arrived in New South Wales in 1832, having-bèen dispatched hither by. Bishop " MorriB, of Mauritius, within whose see the whôlè of : Australia ] then was. Dr. Ullathorne had some strange experiences of "the convict system of those days, and a few, bat few indeed, of these he has left behind him. It was he who, wheh:bróúght face to face with a number of wretched convicts, saw them fall down on their knees and .pray that they might die, and thus be delivered from the wretchedness, the brutality, the inhumanity which characterised their con- victlife. And when it is remembered, that this was during Governor Bourke's term of office, when the convict system had lost much of its abominable cruelty, those with vivid imaginations can con- ceive...
