THE LOOKOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 31 May 1884

THE LOOKOUT. " Look out down there, for I'm about to lheot." YANKEE POET. Starved to death ! Whit a terrible finding for a jury of human, christian beings, and how it is intensified by the knowledge that the wee sufferer was a mite only fourteen months old. I suppose it is not for us to attempt to pierce the mystery veiling the Divine scheme of things, but it seems strange that He who proteeteth the si.arrow, should suffer such things to be. The story is short and sad. It was in Sydney, the female was bad in every way, she was sent to that sink of crime, the public gaol, and left her little one in the care of one with evidently as little womanly feeling about her as she had herself. The child was returned to 'the cheerless empty den to look after itself until the nothler was released, but she came not, and no one '`ared. All were too bus)y in the struggle for eistgpepl aod so the eager crowds in the city rushed and surged and toiled amidst the din, little woiting or reeking that the...

Local Option. The following is the draft of a petition to be presented to Parliament at the opening of the ensuing session:-" The humble petition of the undersigned women, residing in the Colony of Victoria, sheweth that your petitioners regard the Traffic in intoxicating Liquors, as at present existing in this colony, as the source or manifold evils to Society at large, and especially to manyof their own sex, inasmuch as there are numerous women who are exposed to constant ill.usage, or who suffer equally cruel neglect, because those from whom they should receive protection are made brutal by intemperance; while many mothersaresioomed to see theirsonsordaughters in whom their hopes were centred, yield to the temptation of the drinking bar, and become the victims of the shame and ruin which inevitably result from continued excessive indulgence in. gibes and mothcrs have themselves yieldedn to the allurements of intemperance which beset them, and the manifold efforts put forth for th...
