A CHAT WITH A FRENCH DETECTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

A CHAT WITH A FRENCH DiETECTIVE. A French iewspaper representatis:e recently had a long conversation with M. Gustave Mac?, who was Director of Criinal Investigations in Paris from 1879 to the end of March, 1881. He complained that the French detective system was hedged round by so many vexatious ad ministrative restrictions that it might now be regarded as the" worst managed force of the kind on the Europrea Continent. Too much time. he said, is lost in formalties. The multiplicity of ceremonies intervening between the applliuatioun to the police force for its services. and compliance with the request for such services, is such that the thief or murderer has fully forty-cight eight hours' start of the superintendent. Often ant interval of five days must elapse, thus affording ample time for the supposed criminals to escape. The French want an advance inl their system of criminal investigantin not un liake that inau"mrated in Englandl by the ap pointment of S?r. IIoward Vincent. Fort...

THE INDUSTRIAL LIFE OF THE FUTURE. (PRINCE EROPOTKIN, IN THE "NINETEENTH CENTURY.") [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

THE INDUSTRIAL LIFE OF THE FUTURE. (PrN?IS KROPOTrLc, IN TiE "i NETEENTr ceerTUnY.") As to the natural conditions upon which de pends the geographical distribution of indus tries in agiven country, it is obvious that there are some spots which are most suited for the development of certain industries. The banks of the Clyde and the Tyne are certainly most appropriate, for shipbuilding yards, and ship uilding yards must be surrounded by a variety of workshopsandfaetories. The industries will always find some advantages in being grouped, to a. limited extent,. accord mg to the natural features 'of separate regions. But we must recognise that now they are not grouped according to those features. Historial causes--chiefly religious wars and national rivalries-have had a good deal to do 1 with their growth and geographical distnibu tion, and still more eonsiderations as to the facilities for sale and export ; thatis, considera tions which are already losing their importance with the incr...

A GHOST STORY. HOME'S FIRST VISION. ("D. D. HOME: HIS LIFE AND MISSION," BY MADAME DOUGLAS HOME.) [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

A GHOST STORY. HOME'S FIRST VISION. ("D. D. IIOME: HIS LIFE AND MISSION," IBY MADAME DOUGLAS bHOsE.) Home was, as usual, with his friend Edwin in the woods. The two bogs were both great readers, and when either of them had found anything in a book that interested him, it was sure to be communicated to the other. On this oceasion-it was in April, 1845 or 1846-Edwin was fullofa ghost story that he had just read. The event it related to is associated with the history of a noble English family; and I am told that it furnished Sir Walter Scott with the aroundworkof one of his allads. Alady and cr lover had mutually agreed that, if there were a life beyond this, the one who died first should appear to the survivor. In pursuance of this vow, the lover, within a few dlays of his leoth, presented himself to his mistress. She treated the vision as a delusion of her senses ; on which the spirit stretched forth his hand and laid it on hers, leaving there a mark that was ineffaceable. MIany year...

THE FROZEN PIRATE.' * Y W. CLARKE RUSSELL, .Author of 'The Wreck of the Grosvenor,' . 'The Lady Maud,' ' A :Sailor's Sweet heart,' Etc. CHArrm~ XII.-A Loaer NioIrr: Ihadapipeof my own in my pocket; I fetched a small block of the black tobacco that was in the pantry, and, with some -trouble, for it was as hard and dry as glass, chipped off a bowlful and fell a-puffing with all the satisfaction of a hardened lover of tobacco who has long been denied his favourite relish. The punch diffused a pleasing glow through my frame, the tobacco was lulling, the heat of the fire very soothing, the hearty meal I had eaten had also marvellously invigorated me, so that I found my mind in a posture to justly and rationally consider my condition, and to reason out such probabilities as seemed to bh attached to it. First of all I reflected that by the usual operation of natural laws this vast seat of 'thrilling and thick-ribbed ice' in which the schooner lay bound was steadily travelling to the northw...

The Growth of Jerusalem. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

The Growth of Jerusalem. The ln«t.ec Xaehric tre aus den 31e rgcsaud, a German newspaper published in Palestine, states that the citv of Jerusalem is growing in sizeand lopulation at a remarkable rate. Its growth is all the more surprising because neither its situation nor its trade are favourable to a rapid increase; it lies amongst a not very fertile group of mountains; it has next to no commerce, and it has no manufactures. Never theless, new buildings are rising daily; churches, gardens, and institutes of various kinds are filling up the formerly deso late neighbourhood to the distance of half-an-hour's walk beyond the old limits of the city. The Jews are to the front as builders. Their houses spring out of the ground like mushrooms-uniform, ugly, one. storied, plentifully supplied with windowes, but with no manner of adornment. The Rotths childs have completed a new hospital. Close beside it there is a new Aby~ssi?an church. The Russians are also great builders; they have erect...

A PROTEST AGAINST BULLFIGHTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 8 December 1888

A PROTEST AGAINST BULL FIGHTING. The Mesican people ame beginni?g to weary of thehorrors and barbarities of bull-fighting; at least so it is to be inferred from a manifesto in English, signed David Camacho, which has . been received from Leon. Senor Camacho re minds us that before the conquest of Mexico horned cattle were unknown there; they were introduced by his victorious countrymen, partly for agricultural purposes, but more especially for the sake of this inhu man sport. How well they hare succeeded in this latter object is attesutoae by the fact that nowadays every city and large town in the country has an edifice built in the form of a Roman amphitheatro. Some are even vast enough to accommodate 15,000 spectators. After describing the " bloody and daring acts of bull-fighters," by which "the expectators become excited to the conciderable degree," he cites, under the sarcastic heading "Hurrah for the Barbarity !" a formidable list of the mis haps at these demoralising spectacl...
