PARLIAMENTARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 16 May 1891

[?] Last year Mr Monro, and the then Oppo sition were loud in their criticisms of | the action of the r remier m not call itig Parliament together before May. There was such a fass being1 made of the delay that Mr Gillies undoubtedly hurried matters somewhat, and it was generally known that- the Cabinet were in a state of unpreparedness. j Mr Mimro did his best to try and 1 catch the late- Premier napping, as j wag instanced by tie brevity of the ] diseossion on the Address-in-Renlr. Bat Monro is not perfection in this respect, and we canimagiue the that will beam on the face of Mr Gillies when, on the assembling of Parliament, he will remind Mr Manro that it is easier to criticise than to perform. In the face of Mr Gillies* tardiness last year we do not expect a heated criticism, but simplv a reminder on the part- of Mr Gillies, ' that every dog has his day.' The next session should be an interesting one, for in addition to the considera tion of the Federation scheme, we expect to ...

J. H. SCAMMELL A TOTAL WRECK. A RUSH FOR THE SALVAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 16 May 1891

J. H. SCAMMELL A TOTAL WRECK. A RUSH FOB THE SALVAGE. The American ship J. H. Scammell, which struck the rocks at Spring Creek, near Barwon Heads, on Thursday night 7th, broke up com pletely during the gale of Friday night. On Saturday morning the coast for miles along were strewn with wreckage, thousands of kero sene tins glittering like blocks of silver among the rocks, while pianos, harmoniums and children s perambu lators were floating-about in a pitiable condition. There was a rush of resi dents in the neighbourhood to secure eome of the salvage before the cus toms officers could establish theii cordon, and many a box of tobacco is suspected of having been abstracted, but the wreckers in many instances will meet with bitter disappointment, for the floating kerosene from the broken tins has permeated nearly everything in the vessel's hold. On Sunday there was a great rush of 1 visitors from Geelong, but the police were there before them, and as a strict watch was maintained alon...

The cir cumstances which led up to the postponement of the execution -were of a strange character. Johnston's case had been fully considered by the Executive Council, and notwithstand ing that pressure was brought to prevent the carrying out of the capi j tal sentence on the plea that the prisoner \v-i» msaue wiieu nt? iuoi dered his wife and children, it was determined that his execution should take place, along with that of a crimi nal convicted of a shocking outrage on a young girl, at 10 o'clock on Monday morning at the Ballarat Gaol.
