The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 10. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
^hc jjforlli Rastrallan. FRIDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 10. Now that we are so soon to have the tenders called for the construction of the Palmerston jetty and Palmerston Pine Creek railway, it devolves upon us as a matter of duty to enquire into the question of what description of labour > should be used on these-works. By a reference to an article in another column it will be seen that the Government Resident has embraced the opportunity afforded by his quarterly report to make a suggestions or two on this important matter. We say important ; but that is hardly a word strong enough. It is, as the Hon. Mr. Parsons points out, an absolute necessity that the question of labour for these works should be con- sidered to the fullest extent ; and, moreover, it is equally necessary for the well-being of the whole colony that, if the Government find the work cannot be done by suitable labour without the expenditure of further capital than that already estimated, they should vote the extra amou...

SEPARATE REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
SEPARATE REPRESENTATION. IN the South Australian House of Assembly on September 10, Mr. John Moule (one of the present members for thc Northern Territory) moved thc following proposition:-"Thatin the opinion of this House the Northern Territory should have separate representation." " As a return he had moved for respect- ing thc Northern Territory roll had not been made he fell back on one prepared in 1882. It there appeared that no principal had been laid down as to thc minimum number of electors to constitute a district -Wallaroo had 4,487 electors, and Yatala 783. Upon the. alteration of districts in 1881 Tatala increased to 1209, but Wallaroo remained about the same. No doubt the colony had not been fairly divided into electoral districts. This question should - bc considered upon not only the basis of population, but of finance as well. Each man contributed about £6 per head in the Territory through the Cus- toms as against £2 in South Australia. If . they regarded the coloured...
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. With us Again. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
THE WEEK'S EVENTS. With us Again. Sir Henry Parkes'return is an eveat of some importance .to the colonies. Whatever ettimate we may have formed of his patriotism in the past, there can be no doubt that with renewed health and a renewed exchequer, it will not be long before his voice will again be heard, and if he can't ge. power he wfll want co know the reason why. He h a man who cannot live without it. Every malcontent in the political world wfll rally round the old veteran, and a look at him as he stepped ashore, seemed to show that like an old racehorse he sniffs fte fray afar off. This time we are to have no mote self seeking or scheming-we have his own assurance that everything is going to be downright flatfooted patriotism and no mistake. Said he, with the sea breeze still fresh about him," I thank you, gentle- men, who have presented me with this address, and .1 thank you gentlemen who at inconvenience to yourselves have assembled here for the welcome you have given me. It mo...
TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
TOPICS OF THE DAY. Horseflesh, bicycling, cricket, boating, athletics of all sorts-that is the topic in Australia to-day, and promises to he so for tie coming months. Is it a good thing? Milton said, that with the spring time, he fornida great accession of poetical power, and we have De Quincey's word for it that John was the best scholar "this island" has produced, meaning by " this island" the little patch of country we spring from. Yes, it is a good thing. Bone and muscle come before care ; and are here after brain and the products of it, are buried. We know what may he said of betting in connection with these things; but every rich thing has its parasites. "Bejoice Oh young mat« in thy youth " is good Scripture, and good common sense ; and - applies equally to a young nation. So we will,race,, and row, and see, after all, , whether a strong chest may not support a strong head, and leave to the self-styled strong- heads their unenvied monopoly of the weak chests. We will do our c...
A Bitter Reward. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
A Bitter Reward. " After thirty years of political life, aiid after the bitter reward I received at the end of it," said the orator ron Saturday, "I am inclined within the limits of all that is honourable to look after the interests of my family." He referred, of course, to the last general election, when the country decided they liad had enough of his administration for a while. But how about the 'bitterness' of the reward? Setting aside any particular legislative blundering for which he was responsible, and allow- ing that he has done much good work in the conrse of his long career, it is a fact as deep as human ' nature that no man can enjoy undue power, or wear legitimate power for too long without becoming demoralized politically. The only safeguard against the abuse of power, says Buckle, is to trust no mon with too much of it. Disraeli and Gladstone have felt the effects of this popular conviction, bat they never got into a pet, and complained of bitterness. The orator had a ...
The Lords Again. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
The Lords Again. Mr. Gladstone in a speech at Edinburgh, warned the Lords against rejecting the Franchise Bill when it comes before them again. He is not a man much given to threatening ; and everything points to a '. time not far off when the opinions which are in the very air as to the constitution of a chamber of hereditary legislators must bring on a fight for the very existence of that chamber. That a man should take his seat in a legislative chamber in virtue of his birth is felt to be an anachronism, and the number of those blockheads and unscrupulous gentlemen whqhavefoolishly called the public attention to them- selves by their antics of late, have only themselves to blame for hastening on the complete destruction of the political power they have usurped and abused for so many generations. It is ridiculous to sup- pose that the 643 gentlemen in the Commons are going to stand for ever the supercilious obstruction of a number of wealthy idlers who represent nothing but their ...
Important Note for Storekeepers &c. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
Important Note for Store- keepers &c. It is an undoubted fact that no firm of manu- facturera in Australia have made such a hit in the production of colonial appliances as that of Messrs. Fletcher & Son, who have been identified for the last 15 or eighteen years with the wholesale manu- facture of stoves, ovens, &c. This well-known finn has an extensive foundry and iron works at Waverley near Sydney, where they carry on the entire work of designing and manufacturing every description of cooking stoves and grates, and every description of plain and ornamental iron work for builders and cob« tractors, such as columns, pilasters, balcony railings, &c. It is an admitted fact that it was the substan- tial character of the firm's productions in ironwork which awakened the country to the advisability of manufacturing for itself all its principle appliances. Excellence of material and perfectness of make were tho stamp which won for the original Fletcher oven...
Why M-Straddles Forsook Literature. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
Why M-Straddles Forsook Literature. Just eight hundred years ago, there dwelt in a lodging house in that decidely Latin Quarter, Yurong-street, Sydney, two gentlemen of the Press who divided their time between Electrifying the Sydney papers and more than galvanising their landlady's financial arrangements. "Their appe- tites were from fair to medium" they said, on applying, and their hours regulated by the one o'clock gun and the post-office clock. One was a deep philosopher and powerful leader writer, while tíie other cooeed very hard into the ears of a Muse, who, np to date, appears to be needing the attention of Stamen, the ear doctor. It is needless to say that the poet rapidly worked bis way into the front rank of funeral verse writers, married well, and soon set up as a grasping money lender who showed nc mercy to his strug- gling brethren. " Tue AGE " he used to say " pays for what it wants." They want poetry and I ooze it out. AU poets marry rich. As for you Straddles, your ...
APPALLING RAILWAY ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
APPALLING RAILWAY ACCIDENT. A terrible railway catastrophe occurred at Bullhouse-bridge, two miles beyond Pehistone, a station between Sheffield and Manchester, on Wednesday afternoon July 16, by which 21 persons were killed outright, and between 80 and 40 injured. The train was the express leaving Victoria station, Manchester, at 12.30 for Sheffield and London. It was passing the Bullhouse colliery at the time (20 minutes past one) when the axle of the engine broke, and the .train at once left the metals, running along the sleepers for a considerable distance. The oscillation of the heavy locomotive caused the draw-hook attaching the brake van behind to the rest of the train to break, and engine and van ran on for a couple of hundred yards, but the carriages, nine in number, losing all guidance and steadying power, toppled, over the embankment, about 20 feet high. At the point where the disaster occurred, about 40 yards on the Sheffield side of the Bullhouse colliery, there is a hi...
The Crime of a Religious Fanatic. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
The Crime of a Beligions Fanatic. Mrs. William Adoins, a widow, who lives in the North'Creek district of Pendleton county, W. Va.;, and her daughter, aged ten, were murdered on Monday, June 9, by Mrs. Adoins' son, Andrew, aged sixteen. The boy recently attended a re- vival held in the North Creek schoolhouse by Baptist ministers, and since that time he bas shown symptoms of insanity. The Adonis family did not attend church on Sunday, but this did not attract attention, although they seldom stayed away. On Monday a neighbour went to the house and knocked. Not receiving a reply, he forced the door open, and fonnd Mrs. Adoins lying on the kitchen floor, with her head terribly crushed. In an adjoining passage the daughter was found with her throat cut. Andrew was found crouched in a corner. Ho was evidently insane. He told thc following story :-" I had a visit from the Lord last night, and he told me to kill them. I crept upon mother yesterday ns she stood over the stove, and struck her...
LATEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. THE CHOLERA—DYING LIKE SHEEP IN FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
WIEST NEWS BY THE MAIL. .._-.--. THE CHOLEKA-DYING LIKE _i -, SHEEP IN FEANCE. ""The panic both at Toulon and Marseilles continues. The number of persons .who have left Marseilles is officially stated to be 10,000, but it is said that 15,000 would he nearer the mark. At Paris, cholera doctors have been attached to the principal station's on the lines in direct communications with Marseilles. They are bound to be at their posts whenever a train arrives. The War Minister has directed the discontinuance of pork at the military messes and the in- terdiction of all butcher's meat which is not of irreproachable quality. The children i n the Communal schools are given, at the expense of the municipality, weak coffee and rum to drink when thirsty. Should the cholera visit Paris the central hospital for it will be the Hotel Dieu, the night service there being more complete than elsewhere. As the latrines there are in direct communication, with the river, this will be a cause of danger to tho...
The A.J.C. Spring Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 10 October 1884
The A.J.C. Spring Meeting. The A.J.C. meeting commenced on Saturday weather, racing, and attendance magnificent. Most of the favourites had their own way. Half a score went to the post for the Hurdle Race, and Vidette and Despatch were most fancied, while Alpha only came in for a litlie support from the outside public, and Uhlan's party accepted 5 to 1 about him. Statesman, a fine strapping fellow, cut out the work at a great pace, and, when the back of the course was reached in the last round, had a lead of 40 lengths, but Chiffney easing him off at the seven furlongs" post, he jumped sideways and fell on tb the white railings which surrounds thc course, and re- ceived an ugly fall. Chiffney was bleeding at the nose when the ambulance brought him back to the paddock, but was otherwise uninjured ; but from the nature of the fall the horse must have received a severe shaking. When the outsider came to to grief, Despatch took up the running, and, having more foot than the others, won ...
