Parkhill Cricket Club Concert. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 March 1895

Parkhill COricket IOlub Concert, - - A concert was .held last Wednesday night in' th Brbuhain stieet WTesle-anr Lecture Hall to augment the funds of the club. Mr William Pie, the president of the club, proved a capable chairman Sgiving great satisfaction especially to the spirited occupants of th bhack. seats bho Sdemanded an encore from all the perform 'ers with Thatming impartiality. The attendance would warrant the belief that the result would largely benefit the coffers ofthe club and enable them to begin next season with a balance in hand. The perfonormance was imosfmerit orious one, making it a workofdifficulty to single any special performer out for special mention.

Kings, Lords, and -COommons. ENGLISH LESSONS FOR:AUS TRALIAN. LEARNERS.,; [BY "HISTO tiCUtS.·"]: i ,' (Continued)' · On June:26th, 1830, this royal leper died. The Blletin of the Kings phy siciang, stating that it had pleased God to take from this world the King's Most excellent Majesty. "Most excellent Majesty,"' says Bradlaugh; '" a son who threatened his mother to make public the invalidity of her marriage; a son who sought to aggravate the madness of his father ; a lover utterly regardless of the well-being of any of his mis tresses; a bigamous husband who acted the part of a dishonourable scoundrel to his first wife, and behaved most basely to his second; a brother at utter enmity with his brother the Duke of Kent; a cl eat .n gaming and racing.

N5j-h Melboajrr e WNork . ig Men' Club. Ir. P.J. MIullanuy delivered an addre~s on the ?~lalthusian doctrine last Wednes day nlicht. The prasident, Mr. J. A. Scott, o0cSpiIT the chair, and a fair attendance of iuemrnbers was present. After a short introductien, he said the capitalist and rmonopoiist averred that over-population wasu the cause of wages being low. But this was utterly absurd. The landiords pocketed two hundred millions of the money.of the pe-pleof England.- It was no.becaiee~ofiniufficient produce that the farine occurred in Ireland. It was ini ccountf of dthe produce being locked up. Population did not press upon the means of subsistence. It was n o wonder that starvation, misery and crime existed when the canitalist took the lion's share of what the workers produced. But, ultimately, this system must change. The aggregate wealth of nations was more now in pro portion to the population than it was some years ago, therefore over-population had not affected it. America...

SCIENTIFIC. HARDNESS AND TOUGHNESS TO BE COMBINED IN STEEL [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 29 March 1895

SCIENTIFIC. -4--- HARDNESS AND TOUGHMNES9 TO BE -COMBIED IN STEEL After much study and the mating of many experiments it is now cepected that a very much improved kind of steel will shortly be at the disposal of manufacturers. The new metal, as it may perhaps hbe called, will consist of an admixture of steel and man genese--the exact proportion of the latter not having yet been decided upon. Upto the. present satisfactory results have been. obtained by mixing from 10 to 14 per cent. oft manganese with the steel. It is said that,. nothwithstanding its considerable toughnessi when cast in the ordinary way, an extra-. ordinary increase of strength is secured byt methods which, in the case of the ordinary. steel, would cause defects such as water-t cracking, brittleness, and so forth. The: article which is being treated is heated to a temperature of about from 1600degs. to 2001( degs.

But George IV. was conserva five, and would not permit the discontinu ance of the episcopal wig, and, in fact, it was not dispensed with until the reign of William IV., when the abolition of the troublesome clerieal environment wasbrought about by Sir George Sinclair, the intimate friend of William IV.

They packed their type just as it stood in the formes, tied up the articles with stout cords by a process well-known to printers, and packing them closely in boxes, vowed to establish a newspaper somewhere which woild be the leading exponent of politics and historyfor the Pacific coast. Had not an unfortunate circumstance taken place it is quite evident that the same newspaper which they contemplated founding would nave been alive to-day.

It appears, however, that out informant was wrong; for, at a meeting held last week, it was unanimously deci ded that the club should be started again, the members having pleasing recollec tions of the evenings spent together last year. when the business arrangements were in the capable hands of the secre tary (Mr M. Miller) and his committee. IN MaIEsIOrIAM.-With deep regret we have to record the death of Mr Francis Doonan, one of the Altar attendants of St. Mary's R.C. Church, West Mrle!bourne, who died at the residence of his parents, 0o5 Leveson-street, North Melbourne, after a long illness.
