$mzmi Jteto& work in; pak^iameot. i (For other Parliamentary News tee pajc S7.) THE PUBLIC SALARIES BILL. BEOEPTION OF THE GOVERNOR. THE STATE ADVANCES BILL. It looked as though the Public Salaries Bill were dead as Julius Caesar and sundry other gentlemen who lived as long ago, but etrenuouB efforts are being made to reanimate that much-discuBsed and apparently deceased measure. The idea of the Government is to have it once more considered in committee with the hope that some modus vivendi may be arranged by those members who favor ?. reductions in the. service, but are disagreed as carried. The third reading having been . rejected by the Upper House the Chief Secretary on Wednesday attempted to obtain a suspension of the standing orders so that the committee stage might be revived, but although there was a majority in favor of that ? course it was not a 'statutory' majority. On ' Thursday another attempt was made to effect the object of the Government, but it was done in a...

With respect to the proposed visit to Italy of Carlos I., Kim? of Portugal, it is announced that the Pope in writing to King Carlos ex pressed the deepest regret that his Majesty purposed visiting King Humbert at Rome. Such an action his Eminence declared could not but be considered as a persona) affront to himself and one that he ventured to say was entirely undeserved after tlip, svmnathv which bad been shown by the Vatican towards Portugal. In consequence of the remonstrance of the Pope King Carlos has decided to abandon his visit to Rome. Great indignation is expressed by the Italian Court at the interference of the Pope, and it is reported that the relations between Portugal and Italy are greatly strained in con sequence of the abandonment of the projected visit of King Carlos.

After following this occupation for a few years he entered the oil and color trade, which included tallow-rendering and tallow candle-making.

THE LATE MR. R. WOOLNOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
THE LATE MR. R. WOOLNOUGH. Mr. R. Woolnough, sen., a well-known and highly respected resident of the Semaphore, died at his residence, Woolnough-road, Exeter, on Tuesday. The deceased, who was in his 73rd year, was for some time engaged in the pilot service. Our shipping reporter writes : — 'There are few people who have been connected with waterside pursuits at the Port for nearly half a century but were acquainted with Pilot Woolnough, who was as straight out a sailor as could be met with, having all the characteristics of one of the old school of mariners whose dogged resolution helped to keep up the prestige of British sea men. In 1823 he was born at a village within a few miles of the sea near Lowestoff, and there became imbued with the desire for salt water. In very early life he made journeys to the nearest port, where he sought without success the stepping stone to a seafaring pursuit. &nbsp; At length circumstances favored his desire and he was taken by the master o...

A POUNDAGE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
A POUNDAGE CASE. Renmark, October 15.— Last Wednesday, at the Local Court, before Messrs. D. Sinclair aud R. Robertson, an interesting poundage case, Johns v. Southall, was decided. The infor- mant sued in respect of excessive maintenance, 4s., charged by the defendant, the pound- keeper. The point really at issue was whether the poundkeeper had power to charge a main- tenance fee of 3s. per head. It appears that some time since the Renmark Irrigation Trust were approached by Chaffey Bros., Limited, with a view to obtain official sanction to in- creased maintenance charges, and defendant had accepted an erroneous report of the transac- tions at a trust meeting as conveying to him authority to levy the higher claim. The depredations caused among the irrigation works by stray stock had given rise to the necessity for some special deterrent to owners. As it was obvious that the defendant had anticipated the proper official authority to raise the maintenance fee from 9d. to 3s. per head...

Mr. S. B. Rudall for plaintiff and Mr. F. D. Harris for defendant.

THE RABBIT PLAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
THE RABBIT PLAGUE. Burra, October 23. — Several important rabbit cases were heard at the Redruth Court this morning, when Messrs. William West and D. J. O'Leary presided. The ranger for the Burra District Council (Mr. John Morgan) laid the informations, and Mr. J. E. H. Winnall acted on his behalf. Donald McDonald, for neglecting to carry out a notice to destroy the rabbits on his land at Bal- dina, was fined in all £4 19s, ; R.J.M. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; McBride, for a similar offence in the same district, had to pay £6 10s. 6d.; A. McCulloch, of Princes Royal, and Ernest Gebhardt, Baldina, were also fined £4 12s. each. Each defendant complained bitterly that the rabbits came on to their land from the eastern country, and the stock roads in charge of the council are said to be swarming with the pest.— Owing to the very dry weather to the east of Burra vast armies of rabbits are said to be coming west, and it is likely that before long the at present serious tr...

Eitzen, and Commissioner Peters- wald, Henry Allerdale Grainger, M.P., was charged by Robert George Crittenden, of Meadows North, with unlawfully assaulting and beating him. Mr. W. V. Smith appeared for the plaintiff. Mr Grainger occupied a seat at the counsel's table, and when the case was called on he &nbsp; stood up and placed one foot on his chair. He &nbsp; thought that all witnesses in the case, if there were any, should be ordered out of the court, which was accordingly done. Mr. Smith raised some objection to the interruption of Mr. Grainger and to the attitude he assumed. He thought that although he was a member of Parliament he should not be treated differently from an ordinary citizen. Mr. Smith, in stating his case, said Mr. Crittenden, in company with Mr. Michell and Mr. Eckersley, was walking down King William-street, a...
