The Advocate Libel Case. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 29 April 1898

The Advocatn LiVip) O.aap. 'We promised to have something more to say concerning tho remarkable trial that terminated in Grafton last Saturday in a verdict against the Advocate for £u damages. But we°must bear in mind that — to quote 'Tramp's' lineo that were referred to in tlio case ? 'Law is a strange thing-, some people say And sensible men should keep out of its way.' Thoro are many aspects of the case upon which we might comment, but that such comment would bring us under tho power of tho unjust and obsolete libol law that disgraces our country. In our last issuo wo bracketed somo few com ments in our report of the j udge's summing up. Any furthor criticises in our columns on that part of the trial m^y be considered as biassed unless they wore put with such clearness as to inako us amenable to another action, but we submit herounder a few extracts from the Gulp's report of tho summing up, with a few of our own comments : — 'But to anyone reading the article there was no getting...

"Home, Sweet Home." [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 3 May 1898

'Home, Sweet Home.' What a beautiful place home is when the father is bilious, the mother is suffering from female weakness, and the baby has tho croup ; father frowns and sweara, mother scolds and grumbles and baby yells! And yet this husband and wife may be two of the beat natured and rea sonable people on die globe when they are in good health. It may seem ridiculous to say that nearly all domestic, disagreements are caused oy tne nver, ouo a caroiui siuuy or tne problem reveals the fact that such an assertion is quite within the bounds of reason. When a person is in ill-health they are impatient, un rsasonable, and quarrelsome j what more natural then than a family '? tiff.' Few people are cynical enough to bolieve that married couples don't wish for poace and harmony, and some reason must, therefore, be found for their all too common differences. Bilo Beans como, therefore, in the guise of a peacemaker ; they put iho livor in good ordei, and invigorate tho whole system, giving ...

Editorial Notes. The Law of Libel. The libel law is admitted to bo in a very unsatisfac tory stato in Now South Wales, and our nowspapors continually bold up England as an example of what proper libel laws should bo, But if tho English press is to be bolioved tho law of libol in tho parent c.nnntrv is bv no means what it should bo. If that is so, then in New South Wales wo must be in a very bad condition. Of the condition of England a Lon don paper of a recent date says : — 'Is it too much to hopo thut boforo the present Government goes out of offico it will do somothing to reform the abuses of tho lav/ of libel 'i Tho number of cases in which the law procures real rediess for a real injury are fow and far between.

Notes and Comments. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 3 May 1898

Notes and Comments. [By C.S.I Some years ago an amphibious animal called the bunyip was alleged to exist in tho inland waters of this colony. Like tho sea-serpent, tho bunyip was «omewhat mysterious, and reports of its appearance were received with a certain amount of incredulity. After having provided the papers with a good deal of conv. tho bunvin was heard no more of for some years. A couple of weeks ago, however, it intro duced itself to public notice again, this time on the Richmond River. A Mr. Patch tells the story of its re-appearance in the river nearCoraki, as follows : — 'As wo were nearing what we thought was a cask or a dead beast drifting with the tide, we suddenly turned our punt around to avoid running into it. The object suddenly swam around tho punt, and, on following it, we noticed it moving away from us at a quicker paco than we were pulling after it. We got a little started at this, and pulled away from it, as quick as possible, but it followed us for halfa milo...
