' To the Editor. ? ...j Sir,— —I. beg to ask yon. to ? draw, 'the .attention of/ the Municipal Council to i the. fact uti tibcr 'of ratepayers, that boust that they will .not pay their '.rates. for.. this half-year, and have not done so., I 'do not know why thev will ;not. pay their rates ; it is very unfair -to those who have done bo, and the Council, ought to see that nothing liko this occurs. There was some pausing talk in tho Courthouse at tlio time of the Appeal Court he this matter. Snroly this has not frightened the Mayor and Aldermen from doing their .duly,- -or is it because it is a 'big bug,' .that leads the opposing party, retuses to pay, owing to some tech nical error ou the part of tha Coun cil.. At any rate, in fairness to the majority ot' tho inhabitants^ the de faulters ought to be compelled to pny by those whose duty it is to enforce the law. — I am, etc., . ' A RATEPAYER:.

Doomed to Die. London, January 11. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 16 January 1894
Doomed to Die. London, January 11. The trial of Yaillant, the an archist, who recently exploded an infernal machine in the French Chamber of Deputies, has been concluded at Paris. Throughout the trial the pri sioner maintained a most de fiant attitude, and at the close of the evidence he made a statement to the jury. He nflmit.tfifl his cruilt. but said that his object was merely to injure persons by the explo sion, and he had no intention of killing anyone. His action was the logical result of philo sophy as invoked by Darwin, Spencer and Ibsen. Counsel for Yaillant, M. Labori, made a powerful and eloquent appeal on behalf of his client. He de clared that Vaillant bad been driven to deeds of violence by his constant contact with the sunerlllga UI tuu uiuaaeo ui puui people in Paris, and it was to attract attention, with a view to bettering the condition of the struggling people, that Yaillant had felt called upon to act as he did. The speech was a fine piece of rhetoric.^ The jury ...

By the merest chance De tective Ward escaped being at the Aaron Skeritt's home on the night the latter was shot.
