WEST AUSTRALIAN GOLDFIELDS. THE NORSEMAN FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 2 November 1895

WEST AUSTRALIAN GOLDFIELDS. The Norseman Field. Mr. A. W. B. Mather, of Gawler, who has just returned from the Norseman field, where he has been working for 12 mouths as one ot a party, states that that portion of the vast mining territory of the western colony has the prospect of a very good future before it. The Malonev battery, which is on a line of reef adjacent to tho Norseman, was formally started a few weeks ago, and it is the first battery on the field. It is only a prospectors' plant, but it will be of great value in proving the various mines. Many people thought the water difficulty would be a serious drawback to the Norseman, but this impression has been proved to be erroneous, as good water has been struck at 100 ft., and the Maloney owners will be able to do good work in consequence. At Bevilaqua's, which is about 1^ miles west of the Norseman, where a battery is in course of erection, a splendid supply of good water has been struck. Generally speaking water is too plen...

McLachlan - members of the Select Com mittee appointed to enquire into the opera tions of the village settlements left by the Broken Hill express to pay a visit of inspec tion to the Mount Remarkable settlement.

Mail News. LITERARY AND THEATRICAL. London, September 20. 1895. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895

-JKaii $l£to0. LITERARY AND THEATRICAL. fFrom our Special Correspondent.] London. September 20. 1895. The lady who writes as ' Victoria Crosse,' and has recently produced a choice blend of outrageous vulgarity and sex-mania called ' The Woman Who Didn't,' is by way of being a disciple of ' George Egerton.' By this time the reviewers must nave made her aware that she possesses most of that fair original'B faults without her redeeming force and talent. The worst mischief indeed which able but revolting books like 'Discords do is to raise up hosts of feeble imitations. Not many— thank heaven — pet into print, but publishers' readers just now tell us they are deluged with manu scripts, notable only for their nastiness. The author of 'Dodo' comes to melancholy grief in 'The Judgment Books,' which is a feeble attempt to utilise the same idea that Oscar Wilde gave the world in 'Dorian Gray.' Mr. Benson has not, unfortunately, Oscar's gifts. The situation the latter made mys teriously horri...

ATHLETICS IN AMERICA AND ENGLAND. London, September 25,1895. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895

ATHLETICS IN AMERICA AND ENGLAND. [From our Special Correspondent.! London, September 25, 1895. The result of the international athletio contest at New York on Saturday was a crush ing blow to the supporters of the old country's team. The contest was arranged as New York A.C. versus London A.C., but as, by mutual consent, each club elected members to suit the occasion the contest really resolved itself into England v. America. Unfortunately for the old country the L. A. C. could not ship some of the best athletic talent. &. C. Bred in, for instance, found himself unable to make the journey. F. E. Bacon, the champion miler, cried off. Horgan, the weight-putter, and Barry, the hammer-thrower, were also unable to take the trip ; as were Dr. Munro, the distance-runner, and J. M. Ryan, the best high-jumper in the United Kingdom. In spite of these defec tions, however, we had every reason to look for success in two or three events. Bradley was thought a certainty for the hundred, ...

ST. PETERS CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895

ST. PETERS CLUB. The attendances at this club show a marked improvement now that the inter-club matches are in progress, the players evidently being anxious to qualify for participation. On Thursday, October 24, all the tables were occupied and some interesting games were contested. The handicap tourney is practically finished, and Hicrcrinbottoni has succeeded in going through with an unbroken record, although in his last game, that with Hyett, the latter player overlooked an easy 'win. HigKinbottom's played showed great improvement as the tourney progressed, and he must now be re garded as a first-class player and will doubtless have to yield much bigger handicaps in future tourneys. Hylett also has shown improvement and played strongly at the finish of the tourney, making a very stiff game for Higginbottom, and winning from Stanford, who takes second prize. He, how ever, was too long running into fonn to be placed among the prize-winners. As soon as the two ad journed games with ...

SOUTH SEA CANNIBALS. TWO EN3LISHMEN MURDERED. Sydney, November 6. An account ot the murder and eating of two Europeans by Malayta natives, it will be remembered, was received from the islands some weeks ago. The fact that II. M.S.

A Fiji correspondent now writes : — The Ringdove arrived from the Solomon Group on the 20th, bringing two Malayta named Waia and Sigo Harry, charged with the murder of Captain Atkinson and his mate, Mr. Floyd, on board the schooner Narayoo about September 4 last. Four New Florida natives, who were members of the crew of the Naravoo, have been brought as witnesses. The vessel appears to have been anchored a few miles east of Cape Pitt, on the island of New Georgia, at night, and while the captain was sleeping on deck the mate was asleep in the cabin. The Malayta men, having armed themselves with axes, crept aft and killed the Europeans. The men say the murder was the result of the captain striki...
