ENJOYING A HOLIDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 8 May 1889
ENJOYING A HOLIDAY. A bathinig-woman and her brother, belonging to a well-known, watiring place, thought they would treat them aelves to a holiday and take a trip to London-where they had never been -to see some of the wondious sights of the great metropolis. So they seized the opportunity when there was a cheap day excursion running; but on arriving at London, Bridge station they were so bewildered, not toiisy terrified, by the, to themn, un usual bustle going on around them, that they were afraid to venture out of the station. Nor lid they, for they sat in the station the whole of the day! And that's how they saw the " sights of London " and enjoyed their holiday ! heedless to; say, they were, most unimercifilly chalffed by their friends on reaching home; on relating the result of their trip. This is a faet.
TEMPERANCE SOCIETIES IN THE 16th CENTURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 8 May 1889
TEMPERANCE SOCIETIES IN THE 16th CENTURY. -- C--- The various laws which were fre. quently enacted in the 15th and 16th centuries to check drunkenness, or at least "immoderate drinking of wine and spirits, proved utterly abortive, owing to the social lifo of the Middle Ages, which "ias chiefly 'basoed upon gua ng. Charlemagne himself was obliged to·'orderi thant the '.counts nd mar.' graves should at least be sober when sitting in the courts of justice, while the German Emperors were at their coronation ceremony asked "whether they promise, by the help of God, to lead a sober lifd.!!; Indeed, all the laws and regulations of the 16th con tury were mainly directed against drunkenneas, but not against drinking. Even Luther was no enemy to wine. Witness the.large goblet (still extant at Nuremberg), which he presented to his friend Jonas. A temperance society was at last foiried 'by' the' aristocracy, and 'the following were among the rules : 1. To'drinkdailyonily fourteen cups of wine. ...

The application was heard before the Court on December 11, when Mr.' Donovan appeared for the applicant, and, there being no objec. tion, the Court granted the application. Afterwards application was made to the Court, under section 41 of the statute, to rehear the application, and notice of this was given to Mr. Fitz henry. The case was reheard on December 2B. Objections were taken to the rehearing on the ground that there was no power to rehear the ap plication after it had been granted; that this was not "a cause or matter" within section 41, giving the Court jurisdictin 'to. rehear,, and that the order for rehearing was bad, inasmuch as it did not state the grounds on which it was granted.
