The Chilian Rebellion. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
Viae Chilian Rebellion. For many months past a rebellion in. Chili, one of the republics on the western side of South America, has been proceeding, and although dis turbances in that country mnsthave | a considerable effect on Australian trade, comparatively little is known; bv the general public as to the causes ] which led to the result. It is true we have had almost daily references to the affair in the cablegrams, but they have been so meagre, and in many instances, so disjointed, that they conveyed very little information. The Sydney Daily Telegraph, ho w ever, ^ a recent issue published an. interesting account of the beginning of the revolution as described by the representative of a shipping firm in Sydney, resident in Valpa raiso, and who forwarded his diary to his principals. It appears from that gentleman's narrative that " in the middle of October last the Presi dent of the Republic, Don Jose Manuel Balmaceda, closed the extra ordinary session of Congress, find ing himsel...
The Ministers' Farewell to Canon Tucker. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
Tiie Ministers' Farewell to Cauou Tucker. £c 3MJ£U3JTCATED.3 As many of your readers are aware, the ministers of tlie various Protestant churches. in town formed themselves into a union ajittle over three years ago for the pur pose of mutual help and co-operation in so far as these ends can be achieved by members of different communions; and it is well-known that the results have not been confined to the union, but have extended to all the congregations. Canon Tucker, who is about to leave for Towns ville, was one of the movers in the formation of the union, and he has done very much by his constant attendance and deep interest, but above all, by the able papers and con tributions submitted by him at its meet ings to widen its influence and enhance its worth. It was therefore felt by the mem bers that they could not allow him to depart without expressing these feelings in more than a formal way. Accordingly they invited Canon and USE.

SAVED FROM MISERY. Mrs Fanny Dent, wife of a gentleman employed in tlie Lambton colleries, kindly allows us to publish, the following facte of her interesting case and wonderful recovery, which we gather from her correspondence, and which . we will be glad to allow anyone to peruse who wishes to do so. Mrs Dent has been in a | state of extreme debility for twelve years, | frequently quite unable to do any work, the , lightest kind causing great fatigue, with, severe pains in the limbs, back, and left side. So severe was the pain that she would have to sit or lie down frequently- Walking exer cise was very trying and she could only walk very slowly. She had long seen Clements? Tonic advertised, but like many more people, her husband was prejudiced against" patent medicines," but (now we use her own words) ' I knew someone who had tried Clement's Tonic, and I decided to get a bottle on the (Jbiet and say nothing about it if it did me no good. The effect I thought something wonder ful....

Paul! and Mr Stephen Eddy, both old and well known citizens, but as there is no par ticular burning question at present to agitate the minds of the ratepayers, the election was a very quiet one, and barring a" few cabs being driven about there were no risible signs that it was going on.

That Editor had a Liver. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
That Editor hail a Liver. Ah Anglo-Indian editor once relieved his feelings and increased his circu lation thus : Somewhere in the forties there was a paper called the Mofus silite. The greatest ecclesiastical dispute, Gorham versus the Bishop of Exeter, was at that time occupying men's minds and filling the columns of the newspapers at home; and though a very absorbing topic in England, it had but faint interest for Anglo-Indians. There was thea no telegraph to India, and only a monthly mail to keep India in touch with Europe. Any curtailment of the supply of suitable news by such a controversy was, therefore, rather a serious matter, and it was no easy thing to make a presentable ap pearance. The infliction was horn in silence for some time; bat when, at length, after some months had gone by, and the stream of dreary disputa tion continued, the edit^^^lljlM',; it no longer. He indiifel^peihaps,/ the shortest leader that ever Was written ; but that leader told the j whole story of ...

The Election Clap Trap (Courier, May 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 30 May 1891
Tlie Election Clap Trap (Courier, May 22.) THE Workers' Political Association have captured a popular cry in their sententious and symmetrical pr«£ j gramme of *' One man, one vot ."^ ' But one man one wife, or one montli one idea, would be just as euphonious and perhaps equally significant as an axiom. Again one of the great evils that afflict the commanity is held to be £t plural voting," bur plural voting in the ordinary sense is not lawful in. the election of members of Paaliament in Quesnsland. It is always jvell for the political speaker who does not wish to become popular at all risks to beware of pretty catch phrases. "We; in fact, are now living uuder a system of one man one vote, because no .man can have more than one vote for one candidate in any one constituency. A i person unacqaainted with facts would suppose that the popular cry in Australia at present was being directed against pluralist voters in | the sense that in a parliamentary elec | tion they exercised double ...

Late Mall Mews. It is remarked in connection wifcli tke aiili tory movements in Bussia and Germany, that great activity also prevails in the French military departments. Several mobilisation trials have been made on the Franco -Grerrnan frontier, witli complete success. One was made in the neighborhood of Belfort.

J THE Daily Telegraph says : While rum maging among the parochial archives of Islington, Mr Edwin Davey, clerk of the guardians, found an old book which gives some interesting facts about this famous metropolitan distract as 'it existed at the beginning of the present c...
