WANTED IN PENTRIDGE PRISON. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

WANTED IN PENTRIDGE PRISON. " Jack," a boll-terrier, is. one. of the most watchful guardians of the Tombs New York prison although his name is not down on the pay-rolls. Warden Finn, the efficient custodian of the gaol knows Jack's value, and sees that he is amply provided for in every way calculated to make him lead a dog's life-not as mortals construe it, but as canines desire it. Jack performs as regular a tour of duty as any of the keepers. His post is in the prison-yard, and he patrols it every night with a regularity that is a good example to biped members of the pouce force. His instinct appears to teach him the difference between an officer of the jail and a prisoner, and the former are not molested, while if one of the latter appears in forbidden quarters he is quickly seized by the vigilant dog. He Í3 a terror to the tramps in the ten-day house, who sometimes try to surreptitiously steal a little walk in the yard. Jack has also on more than one occasion frustrated the j at...

ELEVEN BROKEN HEARTS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

ELEVEN BROKEN HEARTS. Eleven wives is the number of women that Peter Tatrp claims he was married to, and of these five have been found living and well, each mourning the loss of the husband. The other half-dozen will no doubt be found within as sort time. Tatro waa sentenced in the United State District Court, at Philadelphia, May 26, under the name of John A.Moore and sent to the Eastern Penitentiary for two years and fined £100. He; was charged with haveing personated a pension agent and forging a pensioner's name to a voucher. The man is fifty-three years of age, and a native of Franklin county, New York. He is agreeable in mannen, and his ways were so entrancing that within ten years five women consented to become his wife after brief courtships. This gay deceiver appeared at Brockport, N.Y.,. in 1878, and after a brief wooing made Miss EÚá Webb his wife, giving his name as J. Stone. The noneymoon was not over be- fore the man began a desperate flirtation with a widow named Pars...

The Watch Business. VICTIMISING THE AUSTRALIAN PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

The Watch Business. VICTIMISING THE AUSTBALIAN PUBLIC. : It very often becomes the stern dnty of tbe Pre3s to speak ont boldly in esposare of impositions practised upon the public, and if thero was ever a time in these colonies that this should be done, it is the present moment, when a well planned, extensive scheme has been inaugurated to im- pudently victimise the Australian public in the watch business. The whole reading public have doubtlessly been surprised at seeing, in the newspaper Press of Sydney, Bris- bane, and Melbourne, huge, glaring advertisements from certain new-comers who profess to give the Australian people ten guineas for three pounds tee shillings. The gentry who undertake to do a thriving business on this generous plan, and at the same time pay for columns of expensive advertisements, are what are known as great English Patent Lever Watch Manufacturing firms. They announce their head factories to be in London, Liverpool, Birmingham, 4c, and it seems a most asto...

Woman Items. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Woman Items. Never fall in love. It is better to put on rubbers and step into it very gently. A young woman is about to open a cigar store. We have no doubt she will have capital to back her. Don't flatter yourself, young man, that you know a girl by heart, until you find that she doesn't no you by mouth. It isn't good manners to ask the young lady you haven't known quite three weeks where she bought her teeth. "What is the name of your cat?" one lad asked of another. "We used to call him William until he had fits, but now we call him Fitz WilUam.'' A professor says the world ia growing larger, but we doubt if it will ever be big enough to satisfy the schoolboy with the first pair of trousers and watch. " How do you preserve your peaches so nicely " asked a lady visitor. "By putting them on the top shelf where Tommy can't reach them," said Mrs. Bushman. Little girl-" Mamma, let me carry the baby ! " Mamma-" No, darling : you're too little ; you might Ut it fall." Little girl-"Well, ...

Great Wrestling Tussle. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Great Wrestling Tussle. There wrns a second great wrestling tussle in New Tori recently between the renowned Japanese, Hateada, and Duncan C. Boes, the champion all-round athlete of the world. The stakes were £250 a-side. The first bont was catch-as-catch can, which requires two shoulders and one hip to strike the ground to constitute a fall. After shaking hands the Jap jumped Uko a frog round the stage eyeing his opponent, wno stood looking down upon him m disdain. The Jap is a dwarf and the Clevelander a giant. Both sinewy, strong and broad-3honldered, but one weigh- ing about 140 and the other at loast 23011)8. Boss' first at- tempt to get the Nelson loc'c on the little fellow waa a complete failure. The Jnp twisted out of his hands like an eel. Boss, relying on his great strength, caught the Jap in his arma l'kc an infant and tried to lay him on his back ; bat the little nun took a sprawling position on the stage, and Boas exerted all his power to turn him over, but to no purpos...

Olla Podrida. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Olla Podrida. Sleepless men, says an English medical writer, are frequently suspected, insomnia as a durable disease being unknown to hardworkers in out-of door life. An English writer declares that only two men among the English men of letters are certain to stand the test of time by virtue of style, and style only. These two are Cardinal Newman and John Morley. By actual count, Dr. Wilson, of England, has found the hairs on a square inch of a fairly covered head to number 1066, from which he estimates that the whole head must have 27,920. He thinks that some heads might have 150,000 hairs. A most effective remedy against pulmonary consumption is alleged to have been found in aluminium and ita compounds. The discoverer bases his opinion on experiments made upon rabbits as well as on observations in his medical practice. A man or woman who treats a child cruelly in Japan is an object of universal horror. Char- women will not accept employment there unless they can bring the little o...

Australian Window Blind Works. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

Australian Window Blind Works. If one man more than another can lay claim to   effecting a revolution in his own line of trade, it is   Mr. G. W. Hodgson, proprietor of the well-known Australian Patent Window Blind Works, Sydney. Seven years ago Mr. Hodgson was in business m Vic- toria, then he went to Brisbane, where he did good   trade for three years, and it was while on a temporary visit to Sydney that he was impressed with the splen- did opening there was in the steady, easy-going old city for an establishment that would understand some     thing of modern work, something of an improved and, more elegant appearance, with systematic manage-   ment and vigorous output. It did not take Mr. Hodgson long to make np his mind about transferring   his operations to Sydney, and results have amply jus- tified his decision. He opened in Pitt-street, and within a month from starting he got a hold on ...

A BLOODTHISTY FIEND. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

A BLOODTHIRSTY FIEND.   The murdered family discovered four miles north of Pleasanton, Kan. June 2, was that of John H. Anderson. The bodies found were Mrs. Anderson, aged about thirty-five   years ; Lillian, thirteen years ; Ella, ten years ; Anna eight, and James four years. Anna's body was discovered this morning, making five bodies so far. The family were very improvident, the man, John H. Ander- son, and his nephew by marriage, Lewis Wampler, preferring fishing and hunting to work. It seems that Lewis Wampler had committed some crime which the Anderson family were fully acquainted with and several occasions had threatened to kill the whole family. From every indication he carried ont his threat. On May 25, Wampler and Anderson left Jones' switch to go to Missouri after Anderson's family, who resided on H. F. Daton's farm, about ten miles east of Pleasanton. On Monday, May 26, Wampler appeared at the house alone,   and told Mrs. Anderson th...

A Prosperous Fire Insurance Company. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

A Prosperous Pire Insurance   Company.     Perhaps there is no company in fire or other in- surance, doing business in New South Wales that exhibits such steady and great development as the Australian Mutual Fire Society. It was founded on a basis which met with very little sympathy from other societies working on the old plan. Its great working principle was simply combining security with honesty, and paying splendid returns on the union. The Australian Mutual Fire Society was es- tablished in 1872, and was the first Insurance So-   ciety in New South Wales on the purely mutual prin- ciple, giving policy holders back part of their premiums as a cash bonus out of profits every year. This liberal principle drew sterling money to the company from all parts of the country, and careful management in the acceptance of risks was backed up by the promptest settlement of claims. The un- usual promptitude shown by the company from the first...

The Rich Coal Mines of Illawarra. A WEALTHY COMPANY FORMED. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 19 September 1884

The Rich Coal Mines of Illa- warra. A WEALTHY COMPANY FORMED. During the last few months a project has been going forward in Sydney for the acquiring of large mineral areas in the rich coal district of Illawarra and it is satisfactory both to the locality of the mines and the trade of the metropolis, to find that the enterprise has been crowned with success. Hitherto in these colonies, a very different plan to the one here acted upon, has been pursued in the formation of coal or other mining companies, and the result has been to retard, rather than encourage the investment of capital for the development of our resources. In very many cases the investment of money is asked on what is largely a speculation, and not a certainty, and in others the general public are asked by men to subscribe who have not themselves proved the BONA FIDES of the affair by first invest- ing their own capital. The project here referred to however, is one that has grown ; not one that has been created, and t...

Political. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

Political. The Hon. Thornes M'Ulwraith, denies that he told the reporter of the REGISTER, that N.S.W. was more protectionist than Victoria. . It has come to a strange pass in New Zealand. Sir Julias Vogel head of the new Govern- ment. There is no doubting Vogel's ability-to borrow. The N.S,W. Assembly has passed the Land Bill and advanced one step nearer a political crisis. The general opinion appears to be that the Land Bill, defective as it is in many of its pro- visions, once becoming law, the Stuart Ministry will fall to pieces. Mr. Alexander Stuart, Colonial Secre- tary of New South Wales, wrote to Premier Ser- vice of Victoria, saying nndue haste had been ex- hibited by the latter in endeavouring to push the Enabling Bill through the House of Commons. Service replies in language which indicates the hopelessness of his being able to inveigle N.S.W. into his shallow schemes. A London print thus refers to the recent return of a capable Badical to the House of Com- mons :-" Mr. Pi...

Hanlan in Training. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

Hanlan in Training. It is quite clear that Edward Hanlan, the celebrated oarsman, has not come down to Australia merely to win a little money from us. He has come here to explode one or two of onr oldest beliefs. It appears that we've been going on the wrong tack altogether with regard to training. Hard-cooked, well-burnt steak, with powdered brickbat in lieu of potatoe mash-or raw hock, bruised under a road roller, and minced bullock hide, have been from time immemorial the privileged dish of the Australian athlete. But Hanlan doesn't take to powdered brickbat,^ or minced green-hide. He is now engaged training for the biggest contest cf his life, and here is his bill of fare for last Sunday's dinner:-Breakfast, two oranges, two chops, and some stewed kidney with bread; dinner, roast mutton and roast turkey, with carrots, turnips, cauliflower, and plenty of batter sauce, a large slice of plum pudding, also custard pudding with champagne sauce, and the wherewithal to wash down these ...

The Oriental Bank Failure. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

The Oriental Bank Failure. The English cables give nc hopes of the re- formation of the broken Oriental Bank, and the only thing the depositors can look to is the result of the official liquidation now proceeding. The straight " tip," to use a parliamentary expression, is that depositors will not get more than 5s in the £1 if they will get that, which strikes ns as a pretty bit of legalised robbery. And jnst now we're strack with a very funny idea-and here it goes in the form of a question. What sort of a crime would it be if a man, knowing his thonsands were still in the vaults, " burgled " the bank and took his own money ? Something of the kind once done would start a neat little legal point. We need hardly say who would coin money over the affair.

A Quack in Trouble. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

A Quack in Trouble. - During the week, Abraham Van Heekerin.aquack doctor bas been before the Sydney court on a charge of procuring abortion. The evidence which has come out' indicates, however, that a man need not be a quack doctor to be a blackguard. The unfortunate girl appears to be the vietim as well of a legally qualified man who first seduced and then deserted her. Bat thc aforesaid Abraham V?.n Heekerin is not a stranger to charges of this kind. Some years ago he was charged with complicity in a notorious abortion case with the famous " Widow Welsh," and escaped conviction through the capable advocacy of Mr. Edward Butler, whose brief was marked 200 guineas. The poor " Widow " (one Thomas Burdett) was convicted,; however, and got seven years in Darlinghurst, and to add to his misery, the woman he trusted with all his house and shop property while in limbo, sold the lot and cleared. Now Van Heekerin, after subsequently running three or four risks of prosecution for procuring ...

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. A Political Wrinkle. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

THE WEEK'S EVENTS. - u ui r A. Political Wrinkle. ' ' It is pretty generally known that there is almost a certainty of forfeiture of the rich coal land selec- tions held in Illawarra, by the Hon. Alexander Stuart, the N.S.W. Premier. It is an extraordinary thing that this discovery should have been made by an' employée of the Hon. Sandy's own department, -which shows how honest Civil Servants can be when they want to settle a grudge. By the way, it is well known that a noted N.S.W. political trickster has made his money on the plan to which poor simple Sandy has fallen a victim. Here is the little pitfal. À country resident discovers a rich bit of gold, copper, silver, tin, or other rainerai land, and gets the political agent to make the appli- cation. This document is of course drawn up informally, and meanwhile the agent arranges with others to make a correct application, he, the agent, standing in as a partner. It is said Sandy Stuart's selections will be lost through entrusting ...

Telegraphic News. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ADELAIDE, SEPTEMBER 25. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

Telegraphic Hews. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ADELAIDE, SJSPTBMMB 25. The Government have now under consideration à proposition to con - struct a raihray from Petersburg to the Silverton silver field, to which, however it is expected a good deal of opposition will be offered. The mining prospects of Silverton j have considerably improved during the past few days. It has been reported that some good Bilver discoveries have been made in South Australia proper this week, but the exact locality has not yet come to light. The principal papers here are strongly urging upon the Govern- ment the desirability of fostering to the greatest extent the mining inter- ests of the colony. Hr. John Moule, one of the mem- bers for the Territory, has written a letter to yesterday's RBGISHB upon the agricultural land laws, in which he shows that speculators have a better chance to secare land on fair terms in the Northern Territory .than have genuine agriculturalists. He also mentions several objectiona...

THE DALY RIVER MURDER. FINDING OF HOUSCHILDT'S BODY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 26 September 1884

THE DALT RIVER MURDER. FINDING OF HOUSCHTLDTS BODY. THE latest accounts from the Daly ? Uiver, the scene of the late terrible 1 outrage by the blacks, treats principally ; of the^Iiscovery of the remains of Henry ; Houschildt. The features of this cir- cumstance all point to what had already been accepted as inevitable, viz., that Houschildt was the first to fall a victim to the bloody designs of the murderers, and also that the outrage was carefully and well planned by them for the direct purpose of totally exterminating the whites who had made a settlement in their country. The following is the gist of a telegram from Corporal Mon- tagu to the Inspector, sent from Tam Creek during the early part of the week: Henry Houschildt's remains were found on Friday last on the east side of Haywood Range, about five miles from the Daly River. The body had been wrapped in a mosquito net and buried in the sand. The party disinterred the remains and upon an examination being made a perforated w...
