Appalling Railway Calamity. CROWDED TRAIN LEAVES THE RAILS. SEVEN PERSONS KILLED AND TWENTY-SIX INJURED. SYDNEY, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 18 February 1901
Appalling Railway Calamity. CROWDED TRAIN LEAVES THE RAILS. SEVEN PERSONS KILLED AND TWENTY-SIX INJURED. SYDNEY, Friday. J One of those awfully sudden disasters which plunge the connnuuity into dis may and mourning occurred this even ing on the suburban railway between Sydney and Hurstville. A train left the Redfern Station for Hurstville at 1 five minutc-fi to 6 o'clock filled with its customary freight of workmen rcturn | ing to their homes, and it left the ; track while travelling at full speed, I when about 200 yards from Sydenham station. There is a slight fall at this point and the engine which sprang off the line ran into a contiguous street for a distance of about 00ft., when it turned completely round aud was battered to ruins. One carriage which was unfortunately filled with passen gers, followed the engine off the line and was smashed to matchwood, some of the occupants meeting with death while others were more or less seriously injured. The second carriage was hauled par...

Open Column [I Ve invite commuuicntions for this coUunn — but do not hohl ourselves respon sible for any opinions expressed therein ] Mr Ash I oil's Slistukcn Friends. TO THE J5D1TOK. Dear Sir, — In your leading article of llth inst, I was sorry to see the attidude taken np against Mr Ashton 's politieol consistency ; especially as of the two candidates I believe the ' Riverina Times ' would prefer to sec Freetrade Ashton elected before Protectionist Chanter. Perhaps it is -wiljr with the view of 'giving both sides ' that it has espoused Mr Chanter's?causc. Although Mr Ashton may have dis appointed a few people of this district in disaorreeinir with some of the clauses in the original draft of the Federation Bill, that surely does not prove him an anli-fedcralists, but rather shows his | conscientiousness. All must admit that the second bill— the present Act — is a very much better one than the first. ! With regard to his opinions 011 the Boer war, he at least had the courage to exp...

Kins and Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 18 February 1901
King ami I'arliaincut The Imperial Parliament was opened ; by the King, the ceremony being of a j specially brilliaut and picturesque character. King Edward led bis Queen by the hand, seating her 011 a ] lower throne beside himself. The I military men, arrayed in their gay uniforms, ?were there, and all the mem bers of the Royal Family with the exception of the Duke of York and the Princess Victoria were in attendance. Tlie many titled ladies present were robed in black, while the Queen herself was heavily veiled, for the Court will be in mourning for some months for Victoria the Good and Great.. The King in his opening words promised well. ' My beloved mother,' said lie, ' iu her long and glorious reign, set an ' example of what Monarclis should u be, and it will be my earnest desire ' to walk in her footsteps.' No nobler utterance, even from the lips, of a King, could be made. If the King will be true to that ideal of rulership I the future of the British Empire .will ' be more gl...

l.iveriita Federal Electorate. ELECTORS' RIGHTS. The following information witli re spect to electors' rights for tlve Federal Electorate of Riverina will be of in terest : —The electors' rights now in possession of electors will be useless for the Federal elections. New rolls, col lected bv the police some little time back, arc now being printed. Every person enrolled will receive an electors' right (personally delivered by the police) in the course of a few weeks. It will then be necessary for electors whose names are not on the rolls to make application to the C.P.S, for an elector s right. Their names will be placed on a provisional list, when they will be dealt with by the Revision Courts held in March. The names will then be added to the roll. In about a fortnight's time the new rolls will be ready, and it would be advis able for every elector to peruse the rolls, and- if their names are not on, apply at once to the local registrar for an elector's right.
A Strange Incident. A SUPPOSED DEAD MAN ALIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 18 February 1901
A Strange Incident. A SUPPOSED DEAD MAN ALIVE. A sensational incident happened at | Newcastle 011 Wednesday. A man j who was supposed to be dead was plaeeil in the hospital mortuary, and ; was afterwards discovered to be still alive. Au old man named Robert Hughes, who for some time had camped in a shanty on Russell's Wharf, was 011 Friday last discovered there by a : citizen who considered him to be ' seriously ill. Hughes was removed to the hospital, but the authorities ar rived at the conclusion that he wa.s not sufficiently ill to warrant his de tention. He was, therefore, discharged on the following morning, and prO1 miscd to return to his family at Mere wetlier. Hughes did not. fulfil his promise, but camped in tlie shed on the wharf, where he was again found, and he complained of feeling very. ill. The police were informed, and Hughes was taken in a cab to the hospital. Upon his arrival at the institution the medical superintendent, Dr. Lavery, examined the man in the cab, an...
A Prehistoric Mummy. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 18 February 1901
A Prehistoric Mummy. In the mummy room of the British Museum may now be seen what is pro bably the oldest corpse in the world. It comes from a prehistoric cemetery j in Upper Egypt, on the west bank of j the Nile, some* miles below Assouan, I and its appearance in England'is due to the energy of Dr. Wallis Budge, the keeper of Egyptian antiquities at the Museum. On his last visit to Egypt he heard that the cemetery in question had been uncovered, and, hastening to the spot, was able to note the position and surroundings of the body before its removal. These details are as nearly as possible repro duced in the exhibit. The body lies in a shallow oval pit scooped out of the sandstone rock, a task of great diffi culty, when it is considered that only stone tools can have been employed, the pit being covered by sandstone slabs laid transversely across it. Round it arc arranged some dozen pots of burnt clay, which, we know from M. : Amelineau's discoveries at Abydos, , were used to conta...
Fencing. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 18 February 1901
Fcncing. Lime as a preservative of timber has ljeen found to keep it for centuries. The following is recommended as ex cellent for fencing posts : — A pit is dug large enough to hold a convenient lot of posts set on end, fresh quick lime is laid in the bottom Gin. deep. The timber is laid or set on end in this pit. The spaces between the posts are filled with small broken lime, room being left for it to swell as it slakes, and when the pit is filled, water is thrown on to slake it into paste, as if for mortar. The lime, in expanding, fills in tightly between the posts, and making a great heat, drives the i moisture out of the timber, and seasons it. Water is added as the lime slakes, until it is a semi-liquid mass. Then as the lime and the heated timber cool, the vacuum I created in the timber by the previous | i heating, is immediately filled by the i lime water, and the cellulose, with all the acids which are neutralised in this way, becomes mineralised, and decay of the timber is...

THE PEACE MOVEMENT. PI ET DE WET AT CAPE TOWN. Mr. Piet De Wet (the brother of General Christian De Wet), who lias recently made several appeals to his brother to lay down his arms and sub mit to the British, is at present at Cape Town, and is continuing his endeavours to brine: about a cessation of hostilities. Mr. De Wet is desirous that the Afrikander Bond should sent a deputa tion to General Christian De Wet and cx-Presideut Stcyn, to intimate to them that the Afrikander* will afford no material help to the Boers, and try and persuade those commandos at pre sent raiding in the Cape to recross the Orange River and surrender. Mr. De Wet has expressed himself to the Bond as confident that if Christian De Wet would yield, General Louis Botha, the Boer commander-in-chief, would then do so, as Mr. De Wet says he is aware that General Botha had previously earnestly advocated surrender. Mr. T. P. Theron, the president of the Afrikander Bond, is now on his way to Cape Town to consult wit...
GENERAL FRENCH AT WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Times, Hay Standard and Journal of Water Conservation — 18 February 1901
GENERAL FRENCH AT WORK. General French, who is operating successfully in the Eastern Transvaal, has made an important capture near Ermelo, a towu close to the Swaziland' border. When General French approached the town the Boer force which had occupied it retired on Amsterdam, some twelve miles from the border. In the vicinity of the town, however, General French came upon a strong Boer laager, which he attacked, and carried, with greav loss to the enemy, 40 of their number being killed, and 200 taken prisoners. In addition, General French cap tured a great quantity of cattle, and recovered a 15-pounder gun, which was lost from Colonel Long's battery at Colenso, when Sir Red vers Buller first attempted to cross the Tugela, in De cember, 1899. [It was in an attempt to save one of these guns that Lieutenant the Hon. F. H. S. Roberts, the son of the com niander-in-chief, lost his life, and - gained the posthumous honour of V.C.] j
