STUDIES OF FRENCH CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 6 July 1901
STUDIES OF FRENCH CRIMINALS. Afteii reading some of these blood-stained biographies one feels that them is a certain polish and grace in the villainies of the Parisian malefactor which liia companions in other countries lack. In England the crime of killing is generally the result of a moment's reckless passion, and the revenge of society is as grim and silent as stoicism witli which the culprit endures it. But abroad the villain appenrs to rise by. easy steps from the most delicate inspiration to the most damnable acts. There was Troppmann, for instance, whose life was blasted by the poverty of his aged parents. Another less sensitive in dividual might have watched that irortli'j couple eat their dry broad and' dfyik their sour red wine without dreaming of heroic measures to mend '^hoir circtimstancee; Bat to this man's overflowing tenderness it was intolerable that his parents should suffer poverty while othors rioted in plenty, and he lit on the Kinck family ns suitable victims f...

(is follows : — " 31.A.I'," ljaH rendered n signal service by, its simple and striking picture of, Gerieial Booth. . I, too, have pe&lt;;n.tliis notable man twice. ;: Once'in (lie. very early diiys ot his mission work, I presided at a meeting in a Northern Borough which bo had come to address. The scene can never be effaced from memory, and the results were marvellous. One long, dreary street ran through the district in which the meeting wns held. It was ono" continuous row of miserable-looking cottages and dirty'beorhquses ; at a later date the Generul'9 staff systematically • at tacked and.closed nearly all the beerhouses, and in a few months, as I can testify, the whole social and moral aspect of the'-district was changed ; to-day. it contains a thriving and happy population of many thousand?.

KUSSIAN CRUELTY. The following, related by a gentleman of good position, who witnessed the occurrence, will serve us an instance of tilings which have-aotnally happened in Northern China : A f8W days after the occupation of Pekiu by the Allies, a Chinese woman, with her small children, one of them a mere baby in arms,, was crossiug she Bazars' Bridge, outside the Chien-men Gatt\ in the main thorough fare leading from the Ohiuese to the Tartar City, when a party of Russian soldiers came along.

A license was granted for another hotel near Moore Park, Sydney; but this was appealed against at tbe Metropolitan Quarter Sessions, when Judge .Murray reversed tbe decision of tbe Licensing Court, and ordered that tbe licence be not granted. This is 'a slop at the Licencing Court, who often are too ready to grant licences in spite of the objections of the police and local residents.

ALLEGED MISREPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 10 July 1901
ALLEGED MISREPRESENTATION. At the last meeting of the Bowral coun cil Aid. Murray asked for the names of the sanitary committee, when they were elected, ana if their appointment had been gazetted.' The Mayor replied to the ef fect that the whole affair was a myth, as no such business had been transacted. The questioner not being altogether satis fied went oh to remark that some of the aldermen had forced their way into the public-school enquiry under the guise of the " sanitary committee." This brought Ald. Oxtey to his feet, and the statement " You know, very well that ,the by-law committee has. to look after'sanitary mat ters," was made. What Alderman Murray., seems to have objected to,was the alleged, misrepresentation.
A DEPLETED EXCHEQUER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 10 July 1901
A DEPLETED EXCHEQUER 'Tis rather hard lines for the officers of the Bowral council, who are obliged to go „on the round collecting debts, &c., before they draw their wages-for the past fort night or pay any of the council's just debts. This is caused owing to the ex chequer being depleted, the payment of interest having swallowed up the funds. In the face of such a state of affairs the works committee brought up a report ne cessitating the expenditure of over ^"40 on road repairs at the last meeting. Of course nothing could be done. It is a true,assertion that our municipality is in a sad state of disrepair, and daily grow ing worse. Yet what can be done ? alas, nothing ! . No one ever thinks of getting up an entertainment in aid of the council; rather too much out of the ordinary.
MR. RYDER. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 10 July 1901
Mr. Ryder. After a long and painful illness Mr. Ryder passed peacefully to his rest on Mon day morning last. It was impossible to help thinking of him on his bed of painful illness during the reading of the Epistle on Sunday morning last:—" For I reokon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the Sons of God." What Mr. Ryder suffered during the past few years none could tell, and no one could have visited liim without learning some of the deepest lessons of human life— the lessons of patience, of resignation, of Christian fortitude. What it must be to have to live a life tbat is seldom free from pain there are few of us that can understand. There is a great mystery in such a life of suffering. But if we now see as through a glass darkly, the time will come when " we shall see Him as He is, anil know as we are known."
THE KIAMA ELECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 10 July 1901

This intelligence was received with cheers from that gentleman's supporters. Mr. Campbell briefly acknowledged the honor again conferred upon him, and as sured the electors he would continue to remain worthy of their confidence. Mr. John Waugh, although just defeated, thanked the electors for the magnificent vote accorded him. Notwithstanding the fact that be had fought ail up-hill battle, it was intensely gratifying to note that he, being practically a stranger, had created so much confidence in the . electors of. Kiama. He thanked the secretaries and others who had worked on his behalf, and conluded by congratulating Mr. Campbell on his victory.
Church of England. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 10 July 1901
Church of England. This fnllowing interesting items are tnken from the July issue of St. Jnde'a " Church News" - En fHcmorfam. Mrs. Alick Osborne. By the death of Mrs. Alick Osborne the \vhole district has suffered loss. She was a prominent worker in the.Church of England at Moss Vale, and for sometime was doing what she could to have St. John's Church enlarged. Mrs. Osborne also helped on philanthropic and charit able work of every kind. It was quite enough for anyone to represent a cause as being deserving in order to gain her practical sympathy. We should say that one of the verses of Scripture that she ap plied throughout her life was that one of St. Paul—" Ye that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the-weak, and not' to please yourselves." People may be " strong " in many ways—in health, in intellect, in riches, in sympathy—and the rule laid down by St. Paul is that they who are strong in any. way should help others..
