No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 2 June 1876

MANIFOLD and secret as are the ways of our police force in the detection of crime, it would appear as if the "right way" had not yet been found, that is if we are to accept as a criterion of police skill the tactics which have been pur sued concerning the apprehension of the perpetrator of the horrible outrage on Mrs. REEECE, at Burrumbeet, some weeks since. The extraordinary num ber of innocent men who have been arrested, and conveyed long distances in custody of the police, then only to be discharged without any satisfaction being awarded them for their unjust arrest and imprisonment, would lead to the belief that the Victorian police, as a body, are not that wonderful class of beings vhich some persons imagine. It is hard to understand how the man "JIM," who withdut doubt is the guilty wretch, has been allowed such along respite, and it appears to us that, if only ordinary care and foresight had been observed, he would long since have been provided with a secure resting-place, an...

MYSTERIOUS THIEVING. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 2 June 1876

MYSTERIOUS TIEVNING. (TO TiE EDITOR OF TIIE IERALD.) Srmo,-I have to complain through the colimnns of Tl'le Herald of the gr?eat amotunt of petty thieving which isocontinuolly taking place from my residence. Allow me to make public that the following articles have been stolen from my premises during the lasot three mnontlhs, namely :-A large top coat, marked "T. Rae," opossum-skin rug, good riding .saddle, set of buggy-harness, and any amount of firewood. To-day I have missed a first-clss cross-cut saw, nod other articles of a more trilihng kind. Now, Mr. Editor, this is getting too bad, and these nightly marauders who go prowling about, picking'up other people's property, deserve to be severely pulished. A few of the resi dents in my neighborhood also complain of losing property, especially firewood. Mlany very ostensibly honest persons keep up good fires, and yet are well-known to live on their neighbors, and never by any means purchase a single load of firewood during the whole y...

A HORRIBLE CRIME. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 2 June 1876

A HORRIBLE CRIME. (TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIlE IIiRALI).) SIR,-I never knew before that it was a crime to be clever, but the Colac Tiime.e of thie 31st ult. blames you, or rather suggests that it is a crime, because you are competent to act as editor and reporter, and also able to compose type. Surely, it is passing strange, that your lumber-headed conte?a porary should endeavor to throw dirty water because thie editor of its successful rival " knows his way albout." Mlethinrks its another case of sour grapes. I am afraid ?Ir. Colac T'irmcs wishes hIe could do it, and tletn we might see an improvement in its miserable appearanmce. For mercy sake, some one rmust advertise in the Coleac Times, and save it from starvation. In rcturn we will get ltruth, as witness Comor's meeting.

LATEST TELEGRAMS. MELBOURNE, Thursday, 8 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 2 June 1876

LATEST TELEGRAMS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.) MELBOURNE, Thursday, 8 p.m. Some progress has been made in clearing up the Hawthorn mystery. This morning, the corpse of young, Thompson was discovered hanging to the rafters of the roof above the canvas i ceiling of the shop. Decomposition had set in, and this caused a bad smell, which led to the finding of the body. I It was hanging by a shepherds' plaidj muflier. It was only four feet from the rafters to the ceiling below, so the unhappy youth must have had great trouble in effecting his purpose, and did so only by placing his feet uponthe partition, and, then throwing all his weight forward on his neck. The police suppose' that young Thompson killed his mother and burned the body. They have had the cellar and garden dug up, and have also dragged two large brick clay-holes in the vicinity, but ineffectually. Mrs. Thompson was last seen on the afternoon of Easter Monday, walking towards the Haw thorn railway station, and carrying a ...

THE BURRUMBEET OUTRAGE. EXAMINATION OF THE ACCUSED. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 2 June 1876

THE BURRUMBEET OUTRAGE EXAMINATION OF THE ACCUSED Thomas Davis, thie man recently arrested in Melbourne, was brought up on Monday at the Learmonth Police Court, before Mr. Dowling, P.M., and Messrs. Morton, Gilchrist Beaton, and Finlay, J.P'., charged   with having, on the 4th April last, com mitted rape upon the person of Elizabeth Rees. The prisoner was undefended, and the prosecution was conducted by Detective Eason, in the presence of Inspector Culkin. The court was opened at eleven o'clock, and was immediately thronged; but after a small debt case had been disposed of, the police magistrate ordered the court to be cleared, much to the astonishment and annoyance of the loungers. The prisoner, who had been brought from the Ballarat Gaol, and was dressed in his own clothes, was then placed in dock and the charge read to him by Senior constable Moran. When asked if he pleaded to the charge of conm mitting the offence at Burrumbeet on the 4th of April, the prisoner repl...

NOTES AND EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 2 June 1876

NOTES AND Elu?N'S. No change has been made iu the date fixed for tile opening of Parliament, and there is every reason to conclude that both Houses will re-assemble the first week in July. Whether Tuesday, 4th July, or Thursday, Oth July, will be named will not be definitely known until the Gazette notice appears, calling the Houses together "for the despatch of business." We remarked in our previous issue that it would be amusing to observe in what manner our subsidised local contemporary would attempt to make capital out of the meeting held in the Oddfellows' Hall on Saturday night, when an almast unanimous vote was passed by an assemblage of nearly 400 people condemning Mir. J. tH. Conuor's political conduct. Our localAnanias has well fulfilled its task, and has actually out-Heroded Herod in a leading article on the meeting, written, it must be borne in mind, without any report or notice of the meeting appearing in its columns. It starts, in plain English, with a lie, when it sta...

FIJI. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

By the arrival of the-Behring we have in telligence to the 13th May. His Excellency the Governor and suite left in the steamship Fiazroy on a tour roundthe island of Viti Levu. No doubt the disturb ance amongst the native tribes at Nadroga is to some extent the occasion of his Excel lency's visit. In addition to his Excellency's personal staff, other ladies and gentlemen accompanied him for the purpose of making a botanical excursion on the island. In the Royal Gazette is published a state ment of the revenue and expenditure of the quarter ending 31st March. From this'it appears the revenue for the quarter has re alised the sum of £5,872 Os Gd, while the expenditure amounts to the sum of £13,245 16s 4d; the excess of expenditure over revenue being the sum of £7,372 15s 10d, lwhich has been defrayed out of the balance in hand of the loan advanced by the British Government, which balance, on the 31st December last amounted to£12,3790 10s ; but, after providing for the financial -defic...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The sharp frosts of the past fortnight have been succeeded by another is elcome fall of rain. This will be higllyboneficial inl re plenishing waterholes, starting the late sown crops, and, if these early winter rains, which appear to have set in, should be accompanied by mild weather, the pastures which have suffered to some extent by the frost will again be enabled to come forward. The season, so far, is not a good one, as regards feed for stock. Wheat sowing in.the latest districts, generally, has been brought to a close, so that the other operations of the season will now be enabled to receive their share of attention. The Marong correspondent of-the Bendigo Advertiser says :-"The want of rain is be coming seriously felt, as the long continuance of frosty nights and bright sunshiny days has rendered the ground so hard that it has become perfectly impervious to any agricul tural implement. Within the last day or two I have conversed with several farmers of my a...

A COMPARISON SUGGESTED. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.) [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

A COMPARISON SUGGESTED. (TO TilE EDITOR OF THE IIIERI!.D.) Sn:,--I wish to direct the attention of the people of Colac to an editorial footnote ap) pended to a letter signed ''An Elector," which appeared in the Colac 'l'imes, of the 3rd instant. In this. precious footnote will be found the following-" There is no reason whatever that will warrant nus in allowing our correspondents to malion a private indi vidual, even though the latter should be our bitterest foe." Now, Sir, I would ask the public after reading the footnote to turn to the Colac Timies of the 27th ult., and peruse several letters which are to be found in that issue. In these letters the proprietor and editor of the Colac Herald are basely slandered by some individuals under the cloak of anonymity, and if this is not "ma-o ligning a private individual," I don't know lihat is. The Colae Tiomes does not practice what it preaches, and the gross personal abuse contained in the letters above referred to show what value is ...

CORRIE S'POiVDU C'U. [It is to be distinctly understood that we do not identify ourselves with the opinions of our correspondents.-EDITOl.] AN OLD RESIDENT SPEAKS. (TO TIE wEDITOiR OF TIHE HERALD). Sse,-Who are the correspondents of your prostituted contemporary, who, with imbe cile effusions, pretend to give forth the opinions of the people of Colac? Do they consist of a football initiator, and Fussy and RIotlschild's clique? Most decidedly they do, for who else could possibly write such horrible trash as has lately appeared in the T7imes, from its darling correspondents. Can they possibly imagine that tihe people will be led away by the paltry and untruthful assertions of men possessing neither know ledge or ability, and who .are so narrow minded as to suppose that their fellows should bow to-what?-a little lucre.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

POLITICAL reforms are necessarily sur rounded and hedged in with many and serious obstacles, but these obstacles are, fortunately for the well-being of the community at large, not insurmount able. The removal of these obstacles to progressive and liberal legislation is the object which has called into exist ence in Victoria the body known as the National Reform League, branches of which have been established in most towns of any importance in the colony. The principal plank in the platform of the National Reform League is the establishment of a progressive land tax. We are pleased to observe that at the lastjmeeting of theLeague in Melbourne, it was determined that the various other objects included in the programme should be subordinated to the cardinal principle of a 1pnd tax. It is useless to endeavor to accomplish too much at one time in the matter of legislative reform, though the temptation to do-so is undoubtedly very strong. There are so' many grave abuses running through ou...

GENERAL SUMMARY. LONDON, April 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 6 June 1876

GENERAL SUMMARY.I LONDON, April 21. ,Great concern was created by a statement in the Bia'"mingaqlcm Post that New Zealand was suffering from six months' drought; but an official contradiction has been given. The memorial which has been pre sented to the Queen by the Royal Colonial Institute, praying for a distinct recognition of the colonies in the new title, does not meet with the general concurrence of the colonist now in Eng land. A deputation waited upon the Secrc tary for the colonies on the subject of the bill regalising marriage with a de ceased wife's sister in Australia, urging the injustice to which snicl persons are subject on coming to England, where such a marriage would be illegal, though legal in the colonies. Lord Carnarvon's reply was the reverse of encouraging. The question, lie said, in substance, was a legal, not a poliimcal one, and must be decided not at Whitehall, but at Westminister. MIr Whalley and Dr. Keneally have come to an open ruptnre, the latter being ...

Having stated what is not true, our subsidised Ananias forthwith makes it the basis on which to ground a lot of abuse of the National Reform League. We now state most distinctly that no such "instructions" have been given to the different branches of the League. No word of anything of the kind has been sent to the local branch of the League, or indeed to any branch ...
