CHAPTER X. THE STRUGGLE IN THE PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 5 September 1914
CHAPTER X. THE STRUGGLE IN THE PARK. The dull crash was lost on the night air. There wan no one within earshot-no one to hear the sounds ; of heavy breathing and crunching gravel. The stakes were heavy, as both combatants, knew well. Cain fought for his very life to save him self from one who, if he gained the upper hand, would assuredly show no mercy. Charteris fought for the sud den and murderous impulse born of the other's impudent threats-an im pulse that drove him to purchase by bloodshed silence concerning the past and security for the future. Though the men were pretty evenly matched in strength and endurance, the contest did not last long. Their desperate struggles took them across the path and half-way back again. Charteris having no weapon, endea voured to throttle his antagonist. Cain had a loaded revolver in his Pocket, but he could not reach it; both hands were needed to protect his throat. The finish came unexpectedly. The master of Charteris Towers was not in the best...

The Mayer of Richmond. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 5 September 1914
w III© layer of iletaaoi. TS b , . CB. CORDON WEBBER, J.P., M.L.A. ^ (°iis -J-.O. To be elected Mayor of an important City like Richmond, with a population of 40,000, a^net annual valuation of n?*rly . £300,000, and a revenue! of 2*40,000, is a distinction of which any man might well feel proud, but to be chosen for the position a second time is an honor that has hitherto fallen to the lot of few of Cr. Webber's predecessors. In Melbourne City, three times Mayor and a Knighthood is of frequent occurrence, but in Rich mond it is a year of hard work, at the. end of which the occupant of the office has generally had enough, and cheerfully makes way for someone else to take up the running. Cr. Webber, how ever, is of such an energetic nature that nothing apparently tires him. He delights in being in the thick of a fight, Parliamentary or Municipal, and generally comes i out victorious. And, being a young man, still on the sunny side of 30, and unmarried, he has no domestic ties to diver...
