A WOMAN'S A WOMAN FOR A' THAT. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
A WOMAN'S A WOMAN FOR A' TEAT. To the village of Modi ing, near Vienna, which possesses a cyclists' club, - belongs the honor and the courage of having offered a prize to be competed for by lady cyclists. Ib was not (writes the Vienna correspondent of the London Daily Telegraph) a very tempting: or precious prize, but then ladies, when dis guised in raw leather boots, black knicker bockers, a yellow jacket with balloon sleeves. and a cunous little Eton cap, are still ideal enough to feel proud of a token of distinction even when its intrinsic value is not sufficient to tempt a burglar. And eight of these ideal ladies appeared on the ground with their cycles, determined to put forth all their strength and skill in the attempt to obtain one of the three '.' honorable badges.' Eight is not many, but for Austrian lady cyclists it is quite a record. And these eight were genuine heroes — not heroines— whose ambition was of the sternest stuff, as their clothes were, and their looks, too. f...
STARVING BLACKS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
STARVING BLACKS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I wish to call attention to the state of things at present on the Strzelecki Creek. Teams are all stuck up, and their cattle dying for want of feed. The aborigines are actually starving as the stations are all closed, and there are no Government rations here. There are. rations within 10 miles of Tinga Tingana that were coming to the kite caretaker there, but at hie death the order was countermanded although there has been another caretaker appointed. I wish to know if the blacks are to bo loft to starve and their rations on the . waggons. There are several old and sick aborigines who have to be carried about by the younger ones now. Surely the present: caretaker is trustworthy enough to give the rations out to the blacks, if he can be trusted to look after the Government property.— I am. &c. GEORGE M. NIXONr Borkitt's Woolshed, Tinga Tingaua, October 18, 1895.
COREA. RUSSIA ACTIVE. LONDON, October 25. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
C0REA. RUSSIA ACTIVE. London. October 25. Intelligence has been received that Russia has ordered the Pacific squadron to proceed to Corea and to instantly prepare for any emer gency that may arise.

WINE SALES IN LONDON. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
WINE SALES IN LONDON. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— No doubt you are aware of the fact fchaft within a week two sales of South Australian wines have been held in London by publio auction, and I wish to point out to your readers the great difference in the two sales. At the first sale the prices . realised in bond varied from Is. 3d. to Is. lOd. per gallon, and reached as high as Is. lid., but only for two hbds. At the second sale the lowest price, in bond, ob tained was 2s. Cd. per gallon, reaching for a small lot as high as 5s. Cd., quite a consider able lot being sold at 2s. lid. and 3s. per gallon. The reason for the difference in the two sales is obvious. The wines put up at the first mentioned sale did not come through the Government bonded depot, and had therefore not received any treatment after being landed, or if they had the wines did not give much credit to the man who treated them. In con sequence a great deal of the wine was in poor condition and one needed not to be an expert, ,...
Correspondence. METHODIST UNION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
(&Qm0$ori!bmtt. METHODIST UNION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — ' Laurie Brinson' I suspect to be a rev. in disguise — it's the hand of Jacob, bub it's the voice of Esau.^Be this so or not, the Rev. J. B. Stephenson is well able to take care of himself against allcomers in a newspaper fight, and I Bhould be slow indeed in coming to his aid only that as an eye witness I can sub stantiate some at least of his statements. ' Laurie Brinson' says the 'church was full,' ? and that ' there was accommodation behind the pulpit, but nowhere eke.' This iB not correct. Your correspondent has either been wrongly informed, or if present at the meeting was blind to facts. I know from observation at the time that the gallery was not nearly tiled to its full seating capacity. I also know that on the floor of the church there was accommodation other than behind the pulpit.' Considering the chairman, the speakers, the music, the anniversary, and other strenuous efforts to secure a crowd, it can surely o...
TROUBLES IN TURKEY. EXECUTION OF 50 TURKS. LONDON, October 25. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
TROUBLES IN TURKEY. EXECUTION OF 60 TURKS. London, October 25. Further information has come to hand respecting the execution of 50 leaders of the Young Turkish Party, who were found guilty of being concerned in a plot inciting the mili tary to revolt. It is reported that the prisoners were placed upon a Turkish man-of-war and conveyed out to sea, where under the cover of night they were dropped .overboard at a point where the current was running swiftest. London, October 26. The province of Antolia, in Asiatic Turkey has been the scene of further anti-Christian outrages. The correspondent of the Standard states that the Mohammedans have burned a village near the seaport of Ismid and massacred the whole of the Christian popula tion. Serious disturbances are also reported from Erzinjan, near Erzeroum, the capital of Armenia. The Mohammedans killed GO Armenians, whom they attacked unawares. The Ambassadors have warned the Sultan of the danger he incurs in failing to prevent the renewal...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
TO THE EDITOR. Sir — It is somewhat singular that letters coming from organic unionists are mostly anonymous, and some of them jgrossly offensive. The letter that appeared in your issue of the 24th inst. signed 'Looker On' is beneath contempt. Let me say that the Rev. J. B. Stephenson, at whom ' Looker On'1 fires liis cowardly sarcasms, is a man who has the courage of his convictions, is noil ashamed to attach his name to a letter, and is one of the most courteous, kindhearted, judicious, and able men in the Wesleyan Methodist Conference. Cannot these anony mous organic unionists see that these letters defeat their purpose. Wo really see in the Methodist Church to-day what we have seen in the industrial system — unionists makiug disguised attacks upon non-unionists. Shall things descend to this low level— that so long as a man is an organic Methodist unionist he is a brother beloved, but if he be .a freelance he is a blackleg, for whom no good word can bo said? Your correspondent sp...
MORE DIABOLICAL OUTRAGES. WHOLE VILLAGES BURNED. 150 ARMENIANS BRUTALLY MURDERED. LONDON, October 27. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
MORE DIABOLICAL OUTRAGES. WHOLE VILLAGES BURNED. 150 ARMENIANS BRUTALLY MURDERED. London, October 27. The details which have been received con cerning the recent massacre of the Christiansin Trebizond, a Black Sea province of Asiatic^ Turkey, show that the outrages committed there were of a most appalling character, and that they rivalled in brutality the horrible atrocities which took place previously in Armenia. An intense feeling of indignation has been created throughout Europe by the story of tyranny and bloodshed. Mr. Gladstone, in a letter on the subject which was published on Saturday, declares that God has given the Sultan of Turkey to the world as the curse of mankind, and ho prays that God in His mercy wiil speedily put an end to the Unspeakable Turk and all his foul deeds. London, October 28. Further particulars with reference to the recent massacre of the Christians at Trebizond state that upward3 of 900 people fell victims to the savage butchery of the Turks.

No title [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
The tigress at the Zoological Gardens, oc cupying with her lord and master the new iron cage, on Friday last gave birth to three cubs, one being white. The aoudads and ostriches lately born are doing well. The increase in the emigration to Wept Australia which was observable last week still continues. After the fir3t great rush which took place when the richness of the western goldnelds first became generally known the stream of people westward fell away, until at last it could have been little more than half its greatest volume. The intelligence that miners are now wanted appears to have revived the flow, for in addition to the exodus of 700 people mentioned in The Advertiser at the Deffm ning of last week nearly 600 more left by last Saturday's steamers. The A.S.U.N. Co.'s steamer Rockton took the largest number, namely, 300 ; but the New Guinea carried away 90 and the Flinders, which was bound for Esperance Bay, 73 others. The cargo received at Port Adelaide by the three boats wa...
SALE OF ST. ALBANS PRIZES. Melbourne, October 31. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
SALE OF ST. ALBANS PRIZES. Melbourne, October 31. Messrs. Yuille & Co. to-day offered for sale a number of the lots which formed prizes in the recent St. Albans lottery. A Melbourne contingent, numbering about 200, journeyed down oy special train and were afforded an opportunity of inspecting several lots. Before the Bale commenced the gathering at the ring side was one of the largest and most representative which has ever assembled at St. Albans, and the biddings were of the most spirited character. The sale from every point of view was a most successful one, prices on the whole being in excess of antici pations, the only exception being the case, of Strathmore, who went- surprisingly cheap -at 300 guineas. Several of the most valuable lots were secured by Mr. W. R. Wilson, and it is thought that somo of Mr, C. &£. Lloyd's purchases were also made on behalf of the former owner of St Albans. The prioes realised are : — Bedcourt, Mr. D. Boyd, 250 guineas. Dillon, Mr. ...

J.C. committee, held on Friday, the Miraclum case was again considered, and the committee after reviewing the whole of the evidence found as follows : — That the jocliey Thomas Matthews has told the truth in this matter, and that not only is there no reason to cancel or suspend his license, but that on the contrary this committee has satisfaction in find ing he has done his duly. As regards G. D. Basuett, this committee are advised that in couseauence o the manner in which this matter has been brought before them the)' have no jurisdiction to deal with him or the horse Miraclum, but that a copy of the whole of the evidence taken be forivarded to the stewards of the South Australian Jockey Club and the sle-si-anls of the Port Adelaide Racing Club, to enable them to make further investigations if they think fit.

THE HON. G. McGREGOR AND PASTORAL IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
THE SON. O. McQREQOR AND PAS TORAL JUtROYEMESTS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— In my letter of a recent date I charac terised Mr. McGregor's most important state ments as falsehoods. A member of the South Australian Legislature can surely make no mistake about the meaning of that term. Mr. McGregor says 'I corroborate them' (that is, his statements) 'in every particular.' He must therefore asree witli what I then wrote. As I wrote the truth this is as it should be. I accept his thanks in the ssmo sincere s»irit in which they are tendered, and in closing this little incident I may say I am grateful to find myself supported by so' eminent an authority on pastoral matters as the Hon. Gregor McGregor, M.L.C. ? — lam, &c., MALCOLM MURRAY, Wirrabara, October 23, 1895.

The French Chamber of Deputies, after a stormy debate, have passed a \ote_of con fidence in the Government in connection with their attitude towards the Carmaux colliery strike.

THE BONDA HUT-ROAD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
THE BONDA HUT-ROAD. to tub Knrrpn. Sir— In your issue of October 19 I read what I pre sume in intended as a reply to mine of September 21. Mr. Duffy is surely suffering from chronic absent mindedness. He says he would not have taken the trouble to answer wy letter had I stated facts. He distinctly repudiates the idea of spending any money on the Bonda Hut road, as according to his dictomi it is not needed, and there is not eufllcicut traffic on it to warrant any expenditure. And vet the Orroroo District Council, of which he is a member, sent an application to the Treasurer dated January £2, 1895, a portion of wliich reads aa follows : — ' Very heavy floods have been experienced, especially at Christmas time, when 4 in. Of rain fell in a couple of days, causing great damage to roads and fords, more particularly on the Orroroo, Worchard, and WHlowie roads and the Bonda Hut and White Cliff road, both of these roods being impassable unless taken very carefully in daylight.' How then can...

LONDON WOOL MARKET. London, October 25. Itis stated that since the failure of theattempt made by the Frenchbearsatthe Antwerp woo sales to depress the market, the alight depression noticeable in tho London wool market has disappeared.
