A GROWING PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1896
A. GROWING PRACTIOE. Or late numerous cases have ariseci in the lower courts, of solicitors practically taking, or endeavoring to do so, the conduct of the business out of the hands of the justices, and transacting it in any manner their owvn tastes and predilec tions may dictate. Arguments are used and points raised which jhese legal prac titioners know well enough are of the flimsiest description, and such as they would not dare to use before a judge or police magistrate, but which, taking ad vantage of their pleading before laymen, they enlist in the services of their eases.

A MUSICAL CONTROVERSY. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 14 August 1896
A MUSICAL CONTROVERSY. Snome time ago the Melbourne Lieder tafel f deling, in common with other oranizations, the straitening of finances owing to the continued dulness of the times, abandoned the practice of paying artists to sing at their concerts, and in vited musical students to submit them selves to a selection committee, when, if their performances were approved of, they were chosen to appear at the so ciety's concerts. Naturally this was largely availed of, as it was an advertise ment for the players, preceptors, and also an encouragement and compliment to the pupil. One of Herr G. S. De Chanmiet's best pupils, and one who gained a most favorable notice from the metropolitan press, on the occasion of his playing of Raff's "La Fileuse," and Liszt's "P hapsodie, No. 2," at his teacher's annual concert, replied to the notification inserted in the papers by the Liedertafel, and sent in his name. He played the above-named compositions be fore the committee (a committee of ama teur...
