AN OPPORTUNE ARREST. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 14 March 1879
AN OPPORTUNE ARREST. As the steamship Otway was about leav? ing thie Sandridge Pier on Sattiuday: at noon, Detectives Duncan,: Mahoney and O'Donnell observed a woman. named Ca therine Smith, thirty-five. years of sage, whom.they.auspected of being a pickpocket on account of her living with a notoriously bad character.' She was pressing against several ladies who llwere passengers by the ship. The detectives asked . the r ladies whether they missed anything'out of their pockets, but all they said was that they had felt the '.woman pressing, against their pockets; however, they did. not wish to have her arrested, as: they were unable to stay in -Melbourne to give evidence." On one of the detectives asking Smith whether she .was a passenger by the. ship, she re plied in the negative. He then told her she should go ashore as she had no business there, but she refused to leave the 'vessel. The captain's attention was then called to the woman's presence, and he ordered her to go ashore, w...
SHIRE SEVERANCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KERANG TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 14 March 1879
SHIRE8 1 SEVERANC.' To Tu' EDITOR Or THE kIEa s TIEs?. S?a,-If making public allusion tc inconsistent conduct on the part of a publio man " without first codisil-ti?_ nim or seeking an explanation," be an act of discourtesy or a breach of eti quette, permit me to apologise through. e same medium in which the offence was oommitted. I. am. notsuirprised that Mr Langdon replied to the charge, but it is a surprise to me that a gentle man of his intelligence should resort to a mere subterfuge to justify himself. He states "that it was as a member of a deputation of the Swan Hill Shire Council" that he " appeared before the Minister of Public Works, &c." Has Mr Langdon, then, one set of opinions as'a ratepayer, and another as a coun cillor? For what purpose was the deoutation appointed? If the TIaXES report of the Council meeting was correct, it was to oppose severance. Did Mr Langdon approve of the action of the Council? He either did or did ot. If he did, then he broke faith ith...
