Cricket. CRICKET GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
Cricket CRICKET GOSSIP. [By 'Onlookeh.'] The only fixture of importance this week is the intercolonial match between South Aus tralia and Victoria, and given fine weather we ehould witness several days of really goo-j cricket. The South Australian team was selected on Saturday afternoon at the oval by Messrs. W. Slight, F. King, and J. Reedman, and the committee could not have had a very difficult task in -making their choice. As I predicted last week there is but a slight altera tion to the team that last represented the colony, and the committee had such a small , amount of ' ' form' to go on that they could do nothing else. The final selection was: — Georgo Giffen, J. Lyons, J. Reedman, J. Darling, A. H. Jarvis, F. Jarvis, C. Hill, H. Blinman, H. Dyer, E. Jones, and W. D. Claxton. Walter Giffen was discarded for the North Adelaide player, and I think the committee exercised good jndgment in making the alteration. We were badly in want of a change bowler, and although Claxton is a...

SOUTH AFRICAN REPUBLIC LONDON, November 7. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
SOUTH AFRICAN REPUBLIC London, November 7. A banquet was held in London yesterday, at which a number of persons interested in the Transvaal were present, to celebrate the com pletion of the line of railway connecting Natal with Pretoria, the capital of the South . African Republic. . ? The Eight Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, Sec V retary of State for the Colonies, in the course of aepeeoh stated that the relations of Great Britain to those of her colonies having autono mous government were very critical, the secu rity of the Imperial rule depending largely upon the tone and temper in which the coming problems in connection with tho treatment of the colonies were approached. Tho growth of the colonies had been most vigorous, -and tho people possessed every element of national hfe which entitled them to rank with the nations of the swldp yet happily as the possibility of separation' from the mother country increased, the desire for such separation materially lessened owing to the ever wide...
A COLLISION WITH A TRAIN. ACCIDENT AT PETERSBURG. A LADY INJURED. Petersburg, November 1. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
A COLLISION WITH A TRAIN. ACCIDENT AT PETERSBURG. A LADY INJURED. Petersburg. November 1. Another accident occurred at the Mill rail way-crossing to-day, when a horse and buggy came into collision with the 2.15 p.m. train from Adelaide. The vehicle was driven by Mr. Lyons, of Pekina, and the other occupant was Miss O'Loghlin. The former escaped un hurt, but the latter was thrown from the buggy a considerable distance and, was severely cue ana ormsea. j.no norse was so injured that it had to be de stroyed, and the trap was badly smashed. Owing to tho dangerous nature of the crossing through the impossibility of persons being able to see trains coming round the sharp curve from Terowie, the local town council have been for some time past endeavoring to get the railway authorities to make better arrangements for the safety of the public. The danger of leaving the crossing in its present state having been so frequently pointed out, the residents consider that a grave respon sibility res...
THE ANGLICAN CHURCH. CONSECRATION OF TWO BISHOPS. CEREMONY IN MELBOURNE. Melbourne, November 1. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE ANGLICAN CHURCH. CONSECRATION OF TWO BISHOPS. CEREMONY IN MELBOURNE. Melbourne. November 1. ihe ceremony of consecrating two recently appointed bishops of the Anglican Church was performed at St. Paul's Cathedral this after noon in the presence of a very large gathering. The prelates-elect were the Very Rev. J. F. Stretch, B.A., LL.B., who takes the position of coadjutor Bishop of Brisbane, and the Ven. H. E. Cooper, M.A., who will be suffragan Bishop of Ballarat. This is the second time only that such a consecration has taken place here, as until the consecration of the Bishop of Grafton in May last year all the bishops have been consecrated in Great Britain, from whence they came. It has long been a question mooted in the church that bishops should be chosen from the ranks of the- clergy educated at the Aus tralian Universities, out till last year the new departure was not made. The clergymen selected for consecration are both men who have worked hard and zealously ill the in ...
NEW SOUTH WALES POLITICS. THE LAND AND INCOME TAX. Sydney, November 1. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
NEW SOUTH WALES P0LHTCS. THE LAND AND INCOME TAX: . Sydney, November 1. opeaKing at a private picnic yesterday, tho Premier made an important statement with regard to the financial proposals of the Government. He recognised, he said, the absolute necessity for a definite settle ment of the fiscal policv. The Legis lative Council had now by passing the second reading of the Laud and Income Taxes Assessment Bill definitely pledged itself to direct taxation proposals in some shape or other. If then somo honorable settlement could be arrived at in the matter with the Council he would be the last to stand in the way. This speech evidently meant the abandon ment on the jmrt of Mr. Reid of, his previous uncompromising attitude. A few weeks ago, it will be remembered, the Premier was ex pressing his resolve to stick to every liue'of the exemptions. When interviewed to-day Mr. Reid said he was anxious to put an end to the uncertainty of the commercial world, which was, he heard on all sides,...
THE COAL TRADE. PROPOSED CONFERENCE. Newcastle, November 3. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE COAL TRADE. PROPOSED CONFERENCE. Newcastle, November 3. Endeavors are being mode to promote a conference between representatives of the -Madras colliery owners regarding the present . state of the coal trade. It is almost certain to prove abortive, as two or three of the :.i largest companies, which always act as 'bell- wethers' to the others, have already refused '..to meet the men. Meanwhile, however, nothing more is to be heard of the proposed reductions, and probably they will be quietly dropped for the time being. A mass meeting of miners to demand an increased hewing rate is announced for the 36th,
THE DEAN CASE. THE CONSPIRACY CHARGE. Sydney, November 1. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE DEAN CASE. THE CONSPIRACY CHARGE. - Sydney. November 1' The hearing of the charge of conspiracy against Crick, Meagher, Dean, Green, and Jane Reynolds was continued .to-day, when the proceedings were of a .very tame character, the evidence being mostly formal. Mr. Calvert, the clerk of Parliaments, proffered in evidence Sir Julian Salomons's statement read in the Legislative Council by Mr. Wn.nt. Crick very strongly objected to the docu ment being put in. The object of the Crown, he eaid, seemed to be to keep Mr. Want an^ Sir Julian . Salomons out of the witness-box. Who were they that this consideration should be shown them ? He was more honest than the two of them put together. Sir Julian Salomons's statements should be taken with great caution. For instance, Sir Julian had referred to him in tho Council as a married man with children, and he had never had children in his life. He was prepared if necessary to let this charge hang over his head until Sir Julian Salomons could b...
SATURDAY'S MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
SATURDAY'S MATCHES. [By Onloqkeb.1 There .was a fair attendance at the Adelaide Oyal on Saturday afternoon to witness the cricket in connection with the senior associa tion, and both matches having been left in an interesting stage on the previous day of play no small amount of interest was centred in the games. Additional interest was lent to Satur day's cricket by tho near approach of tho match between taouth Australia and Victoria, and the general' opinion expressed was that our playeis would ha\'o to put in some '.really hard gjaft''sduting the week it they wieh to ni*l^j|;^ic^«m9-a» iftwrabje terjae, The matchbetween the Adelaides and North Adelaides was a very exciting contest towards the last,, and many old ovalgocrs said jshey would not have missed it for anything. At the end of the first day the North Ade laides were within 67 runs of their opponents' score and only bad four wickets down, while Tommy Drew and Pettinger were batting with such confidence and precision that it...

' ACCIDENT TO BLACKHAM. Melbourne, November 3. While playing cricket on the Melbourne ground on Saturday Blackham met with a very bad accident, having his thumb, which was so badly hurt in Sydney, terribly smashed.
