..'?? the '; . Publtilied every Monday, Wednesday, and ' Friday , Morning. FAIE AM) IHFABTIALi ? ; ? MOKDAT, MAJICE 20, 1899.-^ JUDGES ' AND JUDGES. Chief Justice Madden is, no doubt, exceedingly sorry that he indulged in Scriptural allusions when summing' up the evidence in the ' Boot Trunk Tra gedy.' Thekla Subbcrke may possess many points of .resemblance to Nell Gwynne, Peg ? Wbffington and Mary Magdalen, but the crowning glory - of the. Magdalen's career has yet to be at tained by the Victorian harlot. His Honor's comparison was certainly not a happy or tasteful one, but his critics in tbe Melbourne papers are clearly in the wrong when they declare that it was altogether inappropriate and displayed a lack of knowledge of the real character of Mary Magdalen. That, knowledge is - bequeathed to 113 by ' ' his - tory, and it certainly sustains the Chief Justice's allusion, else .why should the ' ? Church whose feel iugs are said to have been outraged delight to apply to the homes fo...

Latrofoc Turf iMu ST. PATRICK'S DAY MEETING. Tho Latrobo Turf Clu'o's annual meet ing on Friday List, St. Patrick's Day, passed off very successfully. The weather was pleasant, though somewhat threaten ing, and a slight freshening shower or two fell during tho day. The attoudanco of spectators was quite up to the average, in fact, an improvemontn o last year. A notable feature in tho assemblage was the largo percentage of lady visitors.

Naval Drill at Sydney. AN EXTRAORDINARY INCIDENT. Sydney, Thursday. [Newspaper Article] — The North Western Advocate and the Emu Bay Times — 20 March 1899
Naval Drill at Sydney. AN EXTRAORDINARY INCIDENT. ..'.? . Sydney, Thursday. During the recent drill manoeuvres in Sydney Harbor a party from H.M.S. Royal Arthur laid . a 5001b submarine countermine in Spectacle Bay, near Middle Harbor. When the mine was taken up two days later it was found that it had been struck by a passing steamer, and, fortunately for the steamer, had not exploded, although the contact was so se vere that a portion of one of the propeller blades of the steamer was left in the casing of the charge. It was decided, as the mine had thus been proved defective for offensive purposes, to use it for experi menting whether, if fired within 300ft of the ordinary ground mines, it would cause them to explode. This experiment was carried out yesterday under the direction of Admiral Pearson, and, so far as can be at present -ascertained, the ground mines were unaffected by the discharge of the man-of-war countermine.
