Ashburton Guardian. Manga est Veritas et Prævalebit MONDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1895 it is not a matter for surprise (says the Sydney Horning Herald) that enquiries have been made into the circumstances of the prosecution of four carriers under the Act of Charles 11. for travelling between Nelli«?en arid Braidwood on Sunday. If there are sensitive consciences which are touched and offended, because men are working on Sunday there are other consciences which must be touched, and sentiments of human liberty which must be offende J, by the'face that men whose only oflLnca ii travelling on a remote country road on a Sunday have been prosecuced and dealt with as offenders. There may, in the words of Hamlet, be ' much offence ' in the circumstance of a man travelling al ng a bush road on a Sunday, but the question arises, To whom is the offence given 1 AN ABSUBD LAW Cabinet secrets rarely leak out—ab least, not nowadays—and Sir Wemyss Reid, in the December number of O VBIFET SiJCRBTtf.

TRAVELLING CIRCUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
TRAVELLING CIRCUSES. TO THE EDITOR, Sib, —Once more the shopkeepers, etc., of the town have been injured by the advent of a circus into the town. These shows are allowed to come to the town for a few days and then depart, taking with them a few hundreds of pounds, Matiy of those pounds ought to have gone into the tills of the shopkeepers of the town, who are feeling the hard times sufficiently without any extra special losses being placed upon them. A 1 law has been made which to a certain extent protects the shopkeeper by imposing a kind of tax upon the* travelling hawker. Why not place a proportionately heavy tax upon these travelling shows, and so protect the business people and help the town's exchequer.—l am, etc., A Non Shopkeeper.

ON THE PITCH. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
ON THE PITCH. By The Barber A dab of lather on Saturday stopped the yarn for a time of a circus man I was scraping. When he got his jawing tackle clear again, he told me that the fehree acrobats in the circus who perform under the circus name of the RiEzio brothers were Wellington lads, and hid been pupils in the private gymnasium of Mr H. V. Sawtell, an athlete at one time well known in Ashburcon, where he used to perform as one of the Rozjlle Brothers. Certainly Harry has every reason to be proud of his pupils. I notice that tho Waimate City Fathers are greatly exercised over the fact that o the cost of the last licensing election the share to be borne by them amounts to £63. Three years before the Borough Council had borne all the cost of the election so far as it affected Waimate, and that amounted to £3 in all. The Borough Council evidently fancy that they could run the whole election for £9, and do not relish having to pay £63, and that only a portion of what the election cost...
SIR R. WILLIAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
SIR R. WILLIAMS. London, February 1. The Law Journal asserts that Sir Roland Williams' removal is owing to the fear that he will continue to discharge his duties in the firm and the fearless manner which characterised his treatment'of the affairs in connection with the old New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company. Mr Hunter, President of the Law Society, says the newspaper agitation with regard to Sir R. Williams' removal is unwarranted, and explains that the Judge's attendance on Circuit is the direct outcome of the Law Society's suggestion on a former occasion that Sir R. Williams' retention in London to deal with matters in connection with the leading Australian Companies caused a congestion in circuit work. Me also asserts that Judge Romer is only acting as temporary substitute for Sir R. Williams, and is quite certain that the allegations of the Law Journals as to the reasons for Sir R. Williams' transfer are without justification. A correspondent signing himself &...
Conference of Premlers. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
Conference of Premlers. London, February 1 The Daily Chronicle congratulates the Hobart Conference on its intelligence and patriotism in overcoming the difficulty respecting the scheme of federation. Sydney, February 2 The Daily Telegraph says the Conference of Premiers must be complimented on the plain recognition of the fact that federation on any other than a wide democratic basis is foredoomed. The previous convention was chiefly remarkable for the splendid mistake it made in ignoring the people, and the democracy of the colonies repudiated it with all its works, thus causing federation to sustain a disastrous check. Fortunately the Premiers assembled at the Conference this week were quite alive to this danger, and decided that the lines of the last Convention must be abandoned, with theview of broadening the basis of the movement to one of complete and absolute democracy. The most hopeful augury that something practical will result from the Conference is in the suggestion that ...
GALES in AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
GALES in AUSTRALIA Sydney, February 3 A severe gale has been experienced here since Friday night, and the highest sea known for many years was running in the harbor. The Ferry service has been partially suspended. In shipping affairs delay has been general, and all vessels which have arrived report that they had an exceedingly rough time. Fears are entertained for the safety of a number of the smaller coastal craft. The steam collier IVfount Kembla, laden with coal, broke loose at Woljongong, and was sunk in the harbor in, order to prevent her being thrown upon the shoie and wrecked. It is expected that she will be floated without damage. Brisbane, February 3 The gale still continues, and the sea is something tremendous. All steamers are arriving late, and each reports one of the worst storms ever experienced. The Wodonga ftom Oooktown hove-to for twenty-four hours. The steamer South Australian and Arawata had a similar experience, and arrived in a battered condition. The former, wh...
European and Other Foreign Items [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
European and Other Foreign Items London, February 1 Lord Brassey, in the course of a lecture under the auspices of the London Chamber of Commerce, said the closing of the Indian mints had proved useless. The true remedy for relieving that country of financial depression was, he thought, by developing its resources and the construction of about fifty thousand miles of railways. Captain Puentes, of Madrid, has&quot;* been arrested for assaulting the Moorish Ambassador by striking him on the side of the face when he was about to enter a carriage to attend a Royal audience. The Conference appointed to inquire into the question of the construction of light railways, with a view to assisting the farming industry, in isolated districts, advise that the County Councils should be empowered to authorise the construction of light local railways, subject to the decision of the Board of Trade. In cases of magnitude the Conference expresses no opinion relative to the manner in which the C...
THE SINKING OF THE ELBE. [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
THE SINKING OF THE ELBE. London, February 1. Captain Gordon, of the steamer Oraithie, states that immediately after the collison he stopped and reversed the engines, and shortly afterwards continued on his coarse, supposing that the Elbe was safe. He wm led to believe this because she signalled that she did not require assistance. The repairs to the Oraithie will occupy about five weeks. The Queen has wired to Germany stating that she is greatly distressed at the Elbe disaster, and inquiring whether there are any hopes of more survivors being found. February 2. Germans arrested the officers and crew of the Oraithie at Rotterdam. Wellington, January 88 The B.s. Craithie, which ran down the Elbe, is privately owned, and does not bolong to any line. She is held in 64tha by a number of gentlemen, and one of the shareholders, Mr Gregg, it at present on a visit to Wellington.
Cable Guarantee [Newspaper Article] — Ashburton Guardian — 4 February 1895
Cable Guarantee London, January 31 The lowest tenderers for the Pacific cable guarantee a speed of from fifteen to eighteen words a minute. Hobart, February 1 So far as can be gathered Victoria still maintains a firm attitude over the cable guarantee, although there jg some reason to believe that she wil| again fall into line with the other contributing colonies on' the matter of the English cable service. The principal difficulty,, however, will be over thf New ijealarid cable. If the question of guaranteeing the latter can be separated from that of the English service Victoria will probably agree to continue the English contribution, but if the New Zealand cable is coupled with it she may withdraw altogether. 1 [' &quot; ■ ■ u^ &quot;
