OABLEGRAMS. RBUTEB',B DPEOIIB. WILFUL MURDEB. INSURANCE AGENT'S CRIME. LONDON, Sunday. The coroner's jury at Whatton, in Nottinghamshire, has recorded a ver dict of wilful murder against Frederick IlHoghton, who is alleged to have shot dead his father, William Houghton, a farmer, and a younger brother named Jasper. Evidence was given to the effect that the prisoner was an insurance agent, and held insurances amounting to £14,750 on his brother's life. The brothers were seen on the mill platform' 55 feet from the ground,. when Jaspor was struggling to regain his balance. Frederick Iloughton's version was that a ladder on which they were standing slipped, and that he was sav ing his brother from falling. A doctor told the parents in 1913 that Frederick was suffering from a mild form of epilepsy, and that wea pons ought to be kept out of his reach. It was stated in evidence tnat af ter the first shot was fired inside the farm the gun was deliberately re loaded.

DEATH OF OLD AGE PENSIONER. HOLDING OF THE INQUEST. At the Ararat Court House on Satur- day afternoon, Mr E. J. Simpson, J.P., held an inquest touching the death of the old age pensioner, Henry Hodges, who, as previously announced in these columns, was found dead in his tent in Picnic Road on Friday afternoon last. Dr. F. D. Hayman deposed that he had made a post mortem examination of the body of the deceased. The body was well nourished, but the brain was covered with blood, and in his opinion, death was due to hemor- rhage of the brain accelerated by the heat. There were no marks on the &nbsp; head, nor fracture. Elizabeth Squire, a married woman living in Picnic Road, said that she had known the deceased, who lived in a tent near her, for the past eleven years. Deceased had resided in Ara- rat for a great number or years, but about four years ago he went to reside at Williamstown and only returned back a month ago that day. Deceas- ed stayed, with her for a fortnight, and...

A POLITICAL COMBINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 February 1914
A POLITICAL COABLNE.. Tlough there are not very tangibh grounds for the belief, so far as tht writrr is capable of judging tne sitna tiol, quite a number of prominent. people in Federal politics profess to'be lieve that a double dissolution will bea achieved by the astuteness of the'1in.: istry. The Socialist party, if. one is to jualge by its organ, is anxious, and is beating a vigorous rally on the war drum. Members of the party art warned that they must stand armed for nyv temergency, and be ready to tdke the field at a moment's notice. .Not are the Liberal organs less vigorous with the tocsin, and the alarms have so impressed the Liberal Leagues that they have come to a conunon agree meat, or what is termed in diplomatic circles an honorable understanding. A plan of campaign has been prepareu aln adopted by the People's Party, tht 'eople s Liberal Party and the Aus tralian Women's National League. ints is designed to enable them to worl' together witt a duin object.

KELLY ECHIOEB. .anwy years have now rolled by since the Kelly outbreak, but during the?past -eek we have had two. sad episodes which bring back memories of that. stirring event. Ex-sergeant Steele,. hino play?ed such a prominent, part?in following up the gang, and in.taking. ihe outlaw, passed away, as also did another veteran ilember of the polite: force., ex.sergeant Doherty,, who was:sa emlntr . of the police force at- Glen rowan at the time of the outbreak.

OUR MELBOURNE LETTER. THE BUTCHERS' STRIKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 February 1914
OUR MLEOVURNE LETTER. TILE BUTCHERS' STRIKE. For a time, at least, to quote the as. surance of one of the representatives of the Federal Meat Employers' Union, at the meeting following Monday's con ference with the Master Butchers' As sociation, there is to be no further trou ble in the trade, and we are saved from the discomforts bei.g endured in Syd noc. In sue capital of the ma State the effects or the butchers' strike are being acutely felt, and the price.of sar dines and other tinned stuff has ad vanced in consequence of the dilliculty experienced in ootaining fresh meat. As a result of the conference the men in the metropolis and large towns of tihe State will receive an advance which will aggregate about £20,000 or £30,000. Each memaber will receive an advance of £131/ a year. That part of the ar r,ngemeni t no one, perhaps, will object to, but the ugly feature is in the statement that the public will' nave to par £40,000 at least to make up the differCeLe in wages. Thus, the...
CORRESPONDENCE. [To the Editor.] A NIGHT SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Ararat Advertiser — 26 February 1914
CORRESPONDENI+CE. [To the Editor.] A OIGIT SCHOOL. Sir,-Could any of your readers in. form me if there exists in the town a night school of any description where a few ambitious lads, desirous of inl proving their positions in life, could at' tend after working hours I It seems almost incredible that in a town like Ararat. where there are so many young people (no doubt also desirous of im proving their positions). The qucs" ton of urging upon the Government the necessity of a night school, such as eXi~t; at Colac and many other cen trcs, has never been given serious eousideration. But the "brains of the comnmunity" are surely suffering irons the saime complaint as ''Rip Van Winklle." Thercfore, let us pray that the shock of awakening to the fact that they are twenty years behind I:o times will not prove too severe. Tours, etc., AMBITIOUS. Ararat, 25th February, 1914.
