THE MOUNT RENNIE OUTRAGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 7 January 1887
THE MOUNT RENNIE OUTRAGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. SIR,—An article appeared in your last issue upon the above case, advocating, in common with the various newspapers throughout the colonies, that the extreme penalty should be carried out in the case of the six young men now lying under the death sentence. I now crave a little space to give my reasons for departing from that stereotyped method of treatment, notwith- standing that the person who raises his voice against the operation of barbarous laws, and in favor of enlightened ones, must be prepared to have his views questioned and his motives misrepresented and caricatured. He is portayed either as a dangerous visionary or as an active sympathiser with crime. He becomes a target for the dull platitudes of the great dunce family, a mark for the clumsy ridicule of the self-righteous. "Maud- lin sentimentalism," "mawkish philan- throphy," and similar well-worn catch- words from the vocabulary of abuse are fired at him from pulp...

Wodonga & Towong Sentinel. "Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallen!" —MILTON. FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 7 January 1887
Edobonga & aotuong lfcntincl. "Awake! Arise! Or be for ever fallenl!" --MIITos. FRIDAY, JANU4ARY 7, 1886. How true is the axiom, " One man may steal a horse whilst, another dare not look over the fence." We glance at the Sydney "Evening News" of Dec ember 13th, 1886, and read "Sumnmer Cup, 2000 subs., 00s each, filling rapidly.-Apply at once, Tattersall, care of G. Adams, l'itt-street.-Auvr." Side by side with this we place the fact that two respectable tradesmen of Albury were dragged before the ma gisterial bench by the local DoonBvRRS, and mulcted in a penalty which, in its amount, was sufliciently condemnatory of the farce which was played in the Albury Court House on Friday last. It seems that a bush border town is to furnish the legal precedent in the mat ter of "sweeps." We wonder how the .Sydney authorities will notice this "first prosecution." Daily in the. Press are notices of " sweeps " of ?000, 2000, 000, and 10,000 subscltbers freely advertised. We opine that Me...
MITTA MITTA NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 7 January 1887
MITTA MITTA NOTES (BY STRAY SHOT) The awkwardness of the mail service from this place must be my excuse for not writing in time for your last week's issue. We have three mails a week from this place, but, unless a letter is posted by the Monday morning's mail,it will not get away till Thursday. Some three years the day of departure was altered from Wednesday to Thursday, but then we only had two mails a week. Now we have three, and I think the Post Office Department might arrange to have them more evenly, dis- tributed - viz., the days of departure to be Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, which would greatly facilitate general correspon- dence. They are a " happy family " here, and pull "well" together. There is a local &nbsp; mining compnany carrying on operations not it great way from here, and of course great dissatisfaction was expressed at the man- agement; so some of the directors at a meeting gave the mining manager a mouth's notice. But he, being a canny &nbsp...

TOWONG SHIRE DAY LABOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 13 January 1887
.TOWONG SHIRE DAY LABOR. TO'THE EDITOR OF THE SENTINEL. tSIR,--lt.is anthor late to notice an effusion.in a late.number of The Sentinel, signed"' Horlney Handed Toiler," but the festive .season will perhapls act ias an apology. 1.havo.carefully read the article thnt has so dreadfully raised the ire of "Toiler," :and.have. arrived at two' con clusions - viz., that .his diatribe was dictated by personal qpite, or a too deep attention to " Hennessy." In the latter case there is, taking the season into con Ssideiation, some excuse; in the former, iloln i. . 'o Toiler" is evidently invincibly ignor ant upon the subject in dispute, and is another instance of " Fools rushing in where hiigels fear to tread." "Toiler" must have been complletely carried away by the deep contemplation of "Hunnessy," or someu.other,potent spirit, where he sat down to slate the editor of a rival paper. "Toiler," methinks, is a misnomer. I fear he " weaves not, neither does he spin "-unless a yarn. Mern .of.his c...

ALBURY v WODONGA. TO TIlE £EITOR OF THE SE'NTIIEL. Sil,--Mr Moullder must be a very patriotic individual indeed, or he would never have delivered such a. woundrful passage of oratory as last week's ientinel reports him to have delivered lt, Mr Allard's farewell. Did it ever occur to this Wodonga goenis, who, if -lo'had his way, would permit the sun and the in ion to shliie over W\odunga,i to thl exuclusiion of the rest of the world, that Albury's supdrior position iight be due iii somel measure to the public spirit of its iahanbi tanits 1 The Woldunga CustoUn-liouse has existed for years, while the Albury one has until the other lday been absolutely open to the world.

SIR CHARLES RUSSELL ON IRETAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 13 January 1887
SIR CHARLES RUSSELL ON IRETAND. -4--t-- The members of the Eighty Club en tortained Sir Charles Russell, M.P., at the Westminster Palace Hotel on No vember 25th. The chair was taken by Sir Horace Davey, Q.C., in the unavoid able absence of Mr Arnold Morley, M.P. The chairman proposed the health of the guest of the evening, and Sir Charles (who was received with loud cheers), in responding, said the position of affairs in the political world was curious. They saw groups of individuals acting in con junction whose unity of action a short time ago would not have been suspected -Lord Hartington, whom Mr Chamber lain described as " the Rip Van Winkle of politics," and Mr Chamberlain himself, acting in concert with Lord Randolph Churchill, who passed a great portion of his unofficial life in abusing both of them. (Laughter.) Then they had the eccentric Chancellor of the Exchequer acting with the Whigs, and the Prime Minister making Liberal speeches at the Mansion House. Notwithstanding th...
THE FIRST LADY IN THE LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 13 January 1887
THIE FIlR$7'L ,fDY7TTN1'.IE LAND. -4-- The Queen's life at Balmnoml is very simple and quiet. Her suite is not large. Her Majesty is always accompanied to the Highlands by Il.R.[H. the Princess Beatrice, whoso devotion to her umother is a splendid example to every English, or, as the Queen would herself say, every "British,"daughter. Since the princessts marriago she is, of course, frequently. accompanied by her husband,PrincluHenry of Battonborg, whose pleasant frankness of manner and genuine. kindliness of nature have won him a high plitse in the regard of the Highlanders. Occasionally other members of the Royal Family visit the Queen. The Prince and Princess of Wales often come to Abhrgeldio, which is quite near Balmorall; and this season the young widowed Duchess of Albany has boon staying at Birkhall. Frequently Her Majesty invites some of her friends to reside at Abergeldie Mains, and a visit to thetm there for an afternoon call or "afternoon tea" makes a pleansant drive. A la...

SPLENDID MINING RETURN FROM BUNGUANNAH. [Newspaper Article] — Wodonga and Towong Sentinel — 13 January 1887
SPLENDID MINING RETURN FROM BUNGOWANNAH. The Bungowanah Mining Company, at Bungowannah,yesterday cleaned up,with the splendid yield of 210 ozs. of gold. The cake was shown last night in Wodonga by Mr Stanley,the legal manager, and was a magnificent sample. Considerable im- portance is attached to the yield, which will doubtless have an important in- fluence on the district. The reef is said to be no less than 26 feet in thickness, and as the development proceeds it in- creases in richness.
