The trial of the case known as the Baccarat scandal commenced to-day,. the Court being crowded with mem bers of the aristocracy, among those present being H.B.H. the Prince of" Wales. liATEB. In the Baccarat case, in coupes- - ami nation Sir Gordon CnnftaijBgad mitted that he won £225 chiefly from the Prince of Wales. He said he never sought to confront his accusers because his friends failed to suggest it to be advisable for him to do so. The secondniglit's playing was at the expressed wish of the players to ex* - hibit the stakes clearly. He signed his declaration of guilt because Messrs - Wilson and Coventry were his intimate - friends, and he was advised that it was . the only way to escape a horrible * scandal involving the Prince of Wales*. He now believed the advice was ex- - tremely bad. The Prince of Wales, Coventry and Wilson wrote jointly that in the f ;ce of overwhelming evidence it wa: 'seless for him to deny his guilt.

The Complaints of* tlie Unionists. (Brisbane C urier, May Unionism 1b not not honored, by tlie com plaints of its prisoners appearing in our issue of Saturday. These complaints, in keeping with our uniform but unappreciated practice of fairness to both sides, we have given in full. They are contained in a letter from eleven persons now in Blackall Gaol, and in declarations from two witnesses, one of whom was himself arrested. The declarations cover tbe journey made under arrest from Auga thella to Brisbane, and the letter adds tbat fromBrisbaxie to BladkalL So far as pos sible we are desirous to give the declarants 1 and writers the credit of narrating the truth. It may be at least held as certain that they have not left unstated any severity to which they were subjected. In which : point of view it is remarkable that, even as they inform Mr. Mabbott that lie hag no occasion to apologise, they say nothing of that leg-ironing on board tbe fiodondo, for the assertion of which that gen...

The liaboi* Dispute. (BY ELECTBIC TSBEGFIAFH) (FBOM OUB OWN COBKK6PONDK3IT6.) Affairs at Adavale. ADAVAT.", May 30. The unionists 'here are very unsettled. They removed their camp ontotheBiackwater a few days ago. Storekeepers have been noti fied that in future payments will be made by rsix.months bills. This will probably be re fused. Several stations are now working full handed. The manager of Milo put a notice in the hotels asking for 60 men, and stating that if they: are not obtained they would make other arrangements. Only a few men responded. Three large stations are arrang ing forfree labor. It is feared that when . supplies are stopped here the camp will 'break up, and the men will be making a raid for food.

"A Man in the Hoose!" [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
A Kan fn (he Moose !" An aspiring youth, who wanted only a few hours of being twenty-one, thought he would press the importance of the event upon his parents by carrying oat a little surprise which lie had planned. Having undressed and betaken himself to bed, the schemer (whom we will call Sandy) anxiously awaited the hour of midnight. It seemed to Sandy as if the expected time would never come round-, but jjust as his patience was well nigh exhausted, the first chime of twelve rang clearly through the clear frosty air from the town clock. Ere the second stroke had sounded Sandy had leaped out of bed, reaching-the foot of the stairs by leaps and bounds he | made tracks for the kitchen, where he ' careered about for nearly five minutes like a madman. His father, coming to the top ol the stair, shouted, ' What's up Sandy ?' * There's a man in the hoose--there's a man in the hoose !' replied Sandy. In an in credibly short space of time Sandy was joined by his father and mother, the for...
The Day Before He Went to School. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
The Day Before Hej Went to School, In the days when railways were things j of the future, and even stage coacbes were few and far between in outlying country districts, it was the custom for commercial travellers to make their journeys either in their own traps or on horseback. One of these * Am bassadors of Commerce,' as somebody hn« not inaptly dabbed them, riding along one day. had the misfortune to lose from his saddle-bag a heavy bag of gold-at least so he supposed when he reached his journey's end that night and discovered his loss. How ever, it was just possible that the mjwring guineas might have been left behind at the hostlery where he had | stabled his horse and slept himself on the previous night, and he wrote to landlord of that inn making in- I quiries. Go back he could not, as he ; was bound by business of importance to be in a certain town on the follow ing day. Now, on the road by which the j commercial gentleman had travelled, -& hard-working laboring man, ...

MRS. GREENE'S SISTEB-IN LAW. As the train steamed slowly out of Snobton Station, Mr. Greene flung himself Into the corner of his com partment with a groan. *' What between this infernal law suitaiad one thing- and another,' lie muttered to himself, 'I believe I'm half out of my wits. For the last three days I have been in sucha muddled state of mind that I should not be surprised to find that I have forgotten hall Hie necessary papers. Let mejnst seenow.* And he opened his hand-bag and began to examine the documents in it. While he is thus engagedthe causes of his perturbation of spirit may be stated. In tbe first place, as he him self said, he had a law-suit on hand cause enough in itself to make a man uncomfortable. This trouble had been brought upon him, too, by the misconduct of a relative. The scape grace Joe Mews, his wife's brother, by indnfimg him to back some bills, got him into the dutches of a money-lender, out of which he was not likely to get without considerable loss. ...

Australasian Defences. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
Australasian Defences. THE constitution of the Defence Force of the various Australasian colonies and the means which they have of repelling the possible aggression of a foreign power "is a subject that has "engaged the attention of many colonial statesmen for several years past, and various schemes have been pnt forward, some jingoistic and others absurdly silly in the other extreme. It remained, however, for a practical soldier, Major (General SIR BEVAJVT EDWABDS, j toifnot solve, at least to advise upon the best means for Colonial defence. General EDWARDS was instructed in 1890 by the Imperial War Office to visit the Australasian colonies and :?igive t©with regard to the organisation of their forces.^ The General accordingly came to Australia and made .his report, and afterwards read a most valaable paper at the fioyal Colonial Institute which is published in fall in the journal of that body for April last.

Alteration of the Railway Time-table. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
Alteration of Hie Railway Time-table. THE public time table recently issued by Mr. J. F. THALLOX, General Traffic Manager, contains what the Railway Department are pleased to call an improved train service, to take effect from 1st Jane, 1891, on the North Queensland Railways. On perusing it we must say that there are many elements of improvement, and we believe that when the public get accustomed to its working they will admit that it will afford more convenience to them than did the old arrangement. That is, however, a matter in wbich the travelling public must be the sole judges, and not the department. If the former are satis fied, well and good. The officers of the department are the servants of the public, and in fixing up what they call an "improved train service" they are simply doing their duty so far as they are concerned, and there the matter ends. On analysing the time table issued fay the department we can see many improvements. For instance, a per son desiring to travel...
Municipal Rates. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
Municipal Sates. Ik consequence of a considerable amount nf miwindftpitawiHiig existing, regarding the payments of rates, Mr H. B. Walker has furnished the following information by re quest :-As the Municipal valuation notices for the present year are now being served upon the occupiers and owners of property within the Municipality, a word or-tw^ui explanation might not be out -of fpHp, particularly as a number of ratepayers are not aware that the valuation this year has been made under a new law, which is a good ilfiaj different from tbe valuation laws of previous years. In former years "valua tion " upon which all rates were made, was fixed at "two thirds of the annual value," and the unwniil value was that, at which the property valued might reasonably be ex pected to let at the time. In making these valuations, both the. land and the buildings thereon were yfdued, so that the person who had the most valuable buildings upon his ground was valued the highest, and in con sequence ...
