Can a Witness Demand Costs. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 27 April 1894
Can a Witness Demand Costs. . At the Goulbourn Police Court on Monday morning Mr. Davidson raised the ques tion whether a town witness could legally demand costs be fore attending court. He said it was a question which was continually cropping up and he would like to get the Police Magistrates opinion regarding it. He contended that town witnesses could not demand their costs and that the Act . only referred to persons living at a distance from the court1 Mr. H. O'Brien thought differently, as he thought it would be rather hard to drag * a man from bis work ? without compensating him for it. The Police Magistrate ag reed with Mr. Davidson and said that the clause of the Act meant to secure to a witness his travelling expenses only. Therefore any witness who was ? put to no expense in getting to the court had no right to de mand costs. . This is an im portant decision, as the gen eral impression is that such a power does not exist. — Penny Post.
Very Much Married [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 27 April 1894
Very Much Married It is usually considered a noteworthy* circumstance for a man or womim to be married three times', :btit in olden times the number would have been 'thought but little of. Saint Jerome mentions a widow who married her 22nd husband, who in his turn had been married to 22 wives. A woman named Elizabeth Mast, who died at Florence in ^ 1788, had been married to seven husbands, all of whom she outlived. She married the last of the seven at the age^, of 70. When on her death-bed she recalled the good and the bad points of each of the husbands, and having im . partially weighed them in the balance, she singled out the fifth spouse as her favorite, ; and desired that her remains might be interred near his.
