General News. OUR SUPPLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
[?] OUR SUPPLEMENT. Very great interest is manifested in the personality of the new Governor, SirThomas Fowell Buxton, Bart., who, by a strange coin cidence, was born within a few months of the proclamation of South Australia as a British province. Special value, therefore, attaches to the excellent photographs of his Excellency and Lady Victoria Buxtou (a daughter of the first Earl of Gainsborough, and a godchild of her Majesty the Queen), which are published with to-day's issue of Tlie Chronicle. The likeness of Sir Fowell is from a photograph specially taken by the London Stereoscopic Company, and that of Lady Victoria is repro duced from a photograph by Eliotfc &Fry. The portraits are of full cabinet size, each being enclosed in an oval, and the design is made complete by the addition of an ornamental framework. The pictures are surmounted, by the Buxton coat of arms and motto 'Do it with thy might,', while below is a view of Warlics, the family seat in Essex, which has ...
PORT PIRIE PILOTAGE SERVICE. PROPOSED ALTERATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
PORT PIRIE PILOTAGE SERVICE. PROPOSED ALTERATIONS. At a meeting of the Marine Board a fort night ago serious charges of incapacity were directed against the pilots at Port Piric by the masters of live oversea vessels then in port. The points raised were so , grave that one of the wardens at the meeting ex pressed the opinion that if necessary the pilots should bo suspended. Before taking any serious action in the matter, however, it was thought advisable to make an investiga tion into the charges which had been made, and the enquiries thus instituted had resulted satisfactorily for the pilots ; and indeed such a reversal of the position had been brought about that it may be said that in this instance the character of the pilots for com petence has been clearly vindicated. When tho harbormaster at Port Pirie was requested to report upon the subject he was particularly in structed to interview the masters of the vessels, and, whilst thanking them for their letter, ask them if they wou...

LONDON TABLE TALK. London, September 20, 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
LONDON TABLE TALK. fFrom our Special Correspondent.] London? September 20. 1893. The Daily Telegraph's silly season corres pondence concerning that melancholy seizure of sighs and spasms commonly called 'being in love' has been effectually quashed by a humorist who answered the solemn query ' What is the age of love ?' with one cruel word — 'dotage.' After the backbone had thus frivolously and yet efficiently been taken out of the problem it was rather hard for the youug bloods of your contemporary personating 'A JNew Woman,' 'An Uld Maid,' 'A Happy Wifc,:- and 'Sweet Seventeen' to resume their speculations. Moreover, even when you know who the contributors to this sort of discussion really are their lucubrations seldom deserve perusal. This is because ninety-nine out of a hundred persons ' can't talk of. the tender passion without either posing or prosing. Take for example the case of 'Labby,'who on most subjects outside politics writes robust conitnonsense. He risked splendid pros...
OVERTIME AT JAMES MARTIN AND CO.'S. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
OVERTIME AT JAMES MARTIN AND CO.'S. A special meeting of the employes of Messrs. James Martin & Co. was called a Bhort time ago to consider a letter from the Amalga mated Society of Engineers regarding the question of overtime, Tho meeting' was a very animated one, and the sequel waa provided on Monday, October 21, when Mr. W. H. Carpenter, a- working foreman among the boilermakers, received notice that his services would be no lonprer required.' The Hon. James Martin gave as a reason for this action that Mr. Carpenter had used impudent language towards him at the meeting. From what can be learat (writes our Gawlec correspondent), Mr. Carpenter in the course of his speech intimated that many of the men doubted the statement of the direc tors that the firm could not afford to pay time and a quarter overtime. This waa taken as a reflection on the veracity of the directors, who had distinctly stated that the firm could not afford to pay the extra rate. There was a good deal of ...

His Excellency the Governor, Lady Viotoria Buxton, and suite will be with you about the time these lines appear in print. It therefore merely remains to me to mention one or two final matters in connection with the valedictory functions and the many regretful hearts left behind. The testimonial trot un to Sir Fowell by the residents of Waltham Abbey, was not fully completed till the day before he Bailed, eo that the formal ceremony contem plated in connection with its presentation had to be waived. The ' handsomely illuminated -address was, however, ' sent to Wurlies by hand. It runs' thus: — 'We, the undersigned, present this testimonial to Sir Fowell and Lady Victoria Buxton, expressive of our deep regret at the loss the parish and its surroundings will sustain by the departure to a far-off country, although at the same time we offer our congratulations upon the appointment to such an e...
STONE-GATHERING IMPLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
STONE-GATHERING IMPLE MENTS. ? The Minister of Education on Thursday afternoon laid on the table of the Assembly the report of the judges on the trial of stone gathering implements held at Stansbury on September 23 hist. Messrs. W. Lowrie, G. Sheriff, and P. Anderson were the judges. The report showed that two competitors, Mr. Fletcher, of Port Adelaide, and Mr. Jarrett, of Maitland, came forward. The hitter's machine broke down almost at the start, and. was therefore out of the running. It appeared to have been constructed alto gether too crudely and of material muoh too light to Btand the strain of such work. Mr. Fletcher was somewhat more successful with his implement, and succeeded in lifting a por tion of the stones and tipping them near the fence, but more than half were left on the ground over which the machine bad passed once, and stoppages were so frequent that the same weight of stones could have been lifted by hand and trans ported by drays at considerably less expense. S...

Mr. Heydon prosecuted for the Crown. All the accused, except Crick, who defended himself, were represented by counsel. . Mr, Heydon, in, opening the case, gave a brief resume of tho Dean poisoning charge. He ? referred to the neglect on the jiart of Meagher to ques tion Chemist' Smith before the North Shore Police Court as to whether he sold poison to Dean. He further pointed out that an attempt had been made at the Dean Royal Commission to1 trump up a charge of bigamy against one of the witnesses named Gail. In this attempt the Crown would seek to prove both Crick and Meagher were engaged. After Dean's confession to Meagher, of which the Crown presumed Crick was cognisant, both entered into an agitation in Parlia ment aud elsewhere for the r...

Parkes) at tho Mines Office on Thurs day morning to present him with an address of farewell signed by 90 miners in the colony. Mr. C. H. Goode was voted to the chair. Captain E. J. Htjgiies, speaking on behalf of? the northern diggers, said that there is an abundance of gold in the northern goldfields and Mr. Parkes had taken a lively interest in the development of its mineral resources. He regretted very much, not only for his own sake, but for the colony at large, that the occa sion had arisen for Mr. Parkes to leave the colony. He asked Mr. Stirling to present Mr. Parkes with an address, drawn up by the diggers of the colony, which contained an ex pression of the high opinion in which he was held by those with whom he had been brought in contact.

GREAT EARTHQUAKE IN HONDURAS. 300 LIVES LOST.

MR. CUNINGHAME GRAHAM'S LATEST ROLE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
- MR. 0UNINGHAME GRAHAM'S LATEST ROLE. Mr. Morrison Davidson has discovered that Mr. Cuninghame Graba-n is the de jure monarch of the United Kingdom. It is generally believed (writes the Wcstonin&ter Gazette) that Mr. Graham has a clear title to the dormant earldoms of Menteith and Stratherne, but it has been reserved for ' the Christian anarchist' of Fleet-street to show that in the strict law we ought to bo living under the rule of Mr. Cuninghame Graham with the title of Robert I. It is all a question of genealogy. Robert II. of Scotland, the founder t-f the House of Stuart, was twice married, but in both cases he re quired a Papal dispensation, for which a precise reason does not appear. He had, however, been living in a state of concubinage with his second wife before he married the first, and by the former he had eight children. By the first wife, a daughter of the Earl of Ross, he had two sons. When the first wife died he warned his former mis tress, the daughter of Si...
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WINE. London, September 27, 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WINE. [From our Special Correspondent.! London, September 27, 1895. The second auction sale of South Australian wihea ex Government depot took place in room 6 of the London Commercial Salerooms, Mincing-lane, yesterday afternoon, Mr. Arthur Southard again being hammerman. And very dry work he must nave found it, for the day was unseasonably hot, and room No. 6 is at the top of the commercial block, and has more than a fair share of glass in its construction. Be fore arriving at the South Australian wines the man in the rostrum had 874 lots of port of various grades to get through. He accomplished this feat in two minutes under two hours, which I'm told is not 'a record.' When I arrived at the rooms Mr. Southard was knocking down 'Bon Retiro port, vintage '93,' as fast as pencil could chronicle prices of the lots. These prices, be it said, are about one-half of what the shipper 'expected,' and ' the languor of the buyers — they did not seem to care much whether they ...
AMY SHERWIN ROBBED. SOME RICH HAULS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895
AMY SHERWIN ROBBED. SOME RICH HAULS. A burglary of a particularly destructive character was committed during the early hours of Thursday morning, September 13, at the residence of Madame Amy Sherwin, the well-known Binger, 53, Wellington-road, St. John's Wood, London. The building, which is a handsome semi-detached residence, con taining' 14 rooms, has been in the occupation of Madame Sherwin and her husband, Mr. Hugo Gorlitz, for some years. One side of the house faces Circus-road, and is enclosed by a high wall, but the front of the house is only protected by a wall about 5 ft high. It has been the custom for some years past for the family to spend some weeks during the summer at a seaside resort, and about the middle of August the household, including the servants, went to Westgateon Sea. Mr. Gorlitz had previously taken ample precautions for the protection of the premises, having left the keys in charge of a neighbor, Madame Fisher, and also arranged with a erossing sweeper to m...
