No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Prahran Telegraph — 18 May 1889
A LARGE batch of nealy-breated justices of the peace will shortly be made public, and we may of course take it for granted that included in thelist will be the names of gentlemen who have as much knowledge of jurisprudence, or even the mereaxioms of law, as theyhave of the heavenly bodies. The Great Un paid are a standing reproach 'to our country-they are of no earthly use, and they are capable of much abuse of the law. At least half of the gentlemen who are now entitled to place tie affix " J.P." to tlheir nares are utterly illiter ate, if well-intentioned, honest citizens; and, again, there are others who have education, but who have no legal train ing, and but for the clerks of the'eourts would be unable to give a single correct decision, except in the most trivial cases. But this is not all. The Great Inpaid have a very pernicious habit of carrying their personal .feelings into court. If a well-known and popular mann happens to be charged with a mis dlemeanor, our police court b...

PROFESSOR, KENNEDY, THE MESMERIST. Professor Kennedy continue to draw crowded houses at St. George's Hall, Mel bourne, where he gives the most mystifying entertainments that have ever been seen il the colonies. The genuineness of theenter tairmlent is apparent, as the professor in variably selects his subjects from the audi oence preerset. Men, women, and young children are actually made to see, feel,hear, an thiink whaltever the professor tells them to, arl act with an intensity that far ex cels thle wihlest imagination. They will sing and dance, makel stump speeches, fighl Ilornets, shiver in the cold, snowball each other, with miost lnughablc h:dllucirationr A steange part of the affair is:that the pro. fessor frankly admits that he does not know what this mesmeric power really is, and hi his experiments has baffled the skill of the medical profession. Those who have not witnessed the performance can form no idea ofi its inexplicability, nor the amount of amusement to be obtatine...
