PROTECTION OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891

Protection of Women. The Crimes Act Amendment Bill* is now before the Legis lative Council. Mr Melville is verv desirous of placing our moral status upon a higher basis than at present, and- he 'aims also at protecting the weaker sex to a greater extent than they are pro tected under the present law.- ? Mr Melville. recognises the fact that as our law stands the male portion of the community have a great advan tage ovei the females. * In the event of trouble devolving upon a young woman through indiscreet trust of a lover, or maybe a pretending lover, she has at present to bear the whole disjrrace, whilst he who perhaps has trifled with her affections, and acted a rascallv part in his endeavours to blight her li^e is allowed to go «- BCot free.' Such cases are of fre quent Occurrence, and inany is ihe suicide that can be asc^bed to a broken promise on the part of the un principled betrayer- The concentus of public opinion is that some punish ment should be meted out to offenders in ...

An Ingenious Bank Fraud. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891

Jiii Ingenious JBank Fraud. Probably no more ingenious bank fraud has been accomplished than that perpetrated 'by an expert corger on the bank of Australasia Melbourne on Tuesday. In the morning a woman entered the bank and pre sented a cheque for £132, which was immediately paid by the teller, #s it bore the perforated stamp- of the bank and the initials of the ledger clerk. About half an hour after-, wards the same woman presented another cheque for £1374, duly per forated and initialled ; but it bore a different signature this time, and this, coupled with the fact of her presenting herself a second time with a cheque for such a large amount, excited the suspicions of the teller. He made inquiries, and at once found j that the first cheque was a forgery, that the pei forated letters and initials of the ledger clerk had not been placed on the cheque by the official, and that the bank had been defrauded of the amount of the first j cheque, and narrowly escaped being j victimised for...

Kergunyah South. [Newspaper Article] — The Yackandandah Times — 22 August 1891

[?] (From Our Owb Correspondent.) A vei^y sudden death, occurred at Kergunyah on Monday 'night, when jMrs, Mbrrissy, wife of 4 Mr11 Patrick 'Mbrrissy, an old and respected- 'resi- dent of the Valley passed away. Mr and Mrs' Moriissy retired for the night at 9 o'clock, and shortly after- j wards one of the children complain- ' ing of toothache, she got np to give it a drink. The cold, evidently gave . her a sudden chill, for she complained of feeling unwell. Her husband got up aad attended to her, and one of the children was sent to a neighbour's, j but within five minutes Mrs Mor ! rissy was dead- It is thought that death resulted from heart disease, as she often told her husband she had occasional pains in the region of the heart, bat neither suspected that there was any serious affection. A strange thing is that a sister of Mrs Morrissy 's-d ied at Wangaratta a few weeks ago in a similar manner ; and it was only a day or two since that Mrs Morrissy spoke of going to see her deceas...
