SUPREME COURT—GRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice and a Common Jury.) WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 10 April 1886
SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice and a Common Jury.) WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7. The criminal sessions opened with an un- usually heavy calendar, both as regards the nature of the crimes committed and the num- ber of prisoners for trial. The Acting At- torney General (Mr. Burt) conducted the cases for the Crown. Stealing a Gold Ring. Henry Abrahams, a middle-aged man— known to his familiars as " Abraham the Jew "—pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging him with having, at Perth, on the 22nd March last, stolen a gold ring, the pro- perty of one Hannah Brown. A second count charged him with receiving the ring. The prisoner was not represented by counsel. The facts of the case were very simple. It appeared that the prisoner and the prosecu- trix, a married woman, were drinking toge- ther, with some other persons, at the No Place inn, and the prisoner, observing a ring on her hand, looked at it and admired it. He said he thought it was worth as much as t...

CORONER'S INQUEST AT &nbsp; FREMANTLE. [Before Mr. G. C Knight, coroner, and a jury consisting of P. Birch (foreman) Henry Albert, John Waldron, and E. Beatty.] William Smith said the deceased man, McCarthy, reached Point Walter, between three and four o'clock on Thursday week, took the horse out of the cart and tied it up. He then weut down and filled the trough with water. Mr. Lovegrove arrived three quariers of an hour later, when I informed him, in answer to his enquiry, that deceased was at the pump. I then went in search of him, but could not find any trace of him. The police came on Sunday morning and found the body in the water. I was present at the time the body was found, about one hundred yards from the shore in about two feet of water, and I assisted the police to bring it ashore. The body I have seen is that of the man McCarthy, who worked for Mr.Lovegrove. Mr. Lovegrove, solicitor, said he last saw the deceased alive on Thursday about noon in Fremantle. He was ...
LOCKING UP JURIES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
LOCKING UP JURIES. WHEN tile jury in the assault case tried', at the criminal sessions on Wednesday inti- mated to the Court the improbability of their ever agreeing upon a verdict, the Acting Attorney General said he was afraid there; was au impression gaining ground amongst jurors that they had only to disagree fora short time to justify their discharge. His Honor said he should be very sorry that such an impres- sion should get abroad, and he would do what he could to disabuse the minds of jurors on the subject. Mr. Burt said that, m years gone by, he had known Î'aries locked up all night, and, in a case ike this,-where the evidence was so simple, he thought it would be no harm, if they were to fall back upon the old. practice.
TWO BYE ELECTIONS. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
TWO BYE ELECTIONS. PEOM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. THE two bye elections about to tat place, being for districts having sinai and scattered populations, are no likely to provide features of any par ticular interest to the politician. 11 such constituencies local consideration and the personality of the candidatei put forward almost invariably contro the result. And that this will prob ably be so at the Gascoyne and at tlx Murray and Williams there already ii evidence to show. It may not, how ever, be undesirable that we sbouh make one or two observations whici may assist the electors in arriving ai a right conclusion and suitable choice In the first place we must express oui regret at the causes which have brought about the necessity for these elections. Mr. BURT'S political servi- ces, it is truo, will not be lost to thc country, though his assumption for the time being of the duties of Attorney General will weaken the elected ele- ment in the House.

The CrownJSolicitor prosecuted. Mr. Haynes, with whom Mr. F. M. Stone, appeared for the defence. Mr. Haynes, in limine, asked the learned Judge to reserve a point which ho intended raising in the course of the trial, namely, that the information given to the Court, upon which the prisoner was arraigned, had been given by the learned counsel who was now acting as Attorney General, whilst, as a matter of fact, there was another Attorney General in the colony. A question might arise as to whether it was within the power of His Excellency th...

COLONIAL. BISHOP MOORHOUSE AND HIS PREDECESSOR, BISHOP PERRY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 17 April 1886
COLONIAL. BISHOP MOORHOUSE AND HIS PREDECES- SOR, BISHOP PEBBT. Bishop Perry, though he could enunciate his views with singular clearness and pré- cision, and at times, as at the Conference in Sydney, press them home with a telling ear- nestness that was almost eloquenoe, was no orator to electrify . a meeting, or to take a community by storm by the fire of his ap- peals. ' Besides, the grave and somewhat aus- tere cost Of his own religious character served to put a distance between him and Church- men of a less severe type, and made them hold back at a crisis when their aid and sym- pathy would have been invaluable. More than this, he had made it a point of con- science to repress and repel on several occa- sions representatives of a school of thought which seemed to be gaining ground in the diocese, and the influence of which, upon the clergy especially, he distrusted and feared. His retirement, therefore, at this juncture, after his work of construction was finished, opened the d...

When we think of beautifying out homes, ve must have a due regard for colour and design ; indeed our taste must be educated, it is not in one room alone that our efforts should be exerted. All our designs will be of little avail, if in one room there is just the naked furniture and probably dismal walls, »nd another is luxuriant in colouring and artisticly arranged. Many people now use curtains worked on very inexpensive mater- ial, such as sacking, crash ; these worked in crewel are exceedingly pretty and inexpen- sive, but the pattern must be a bold one and great cara given to the colours used. Cush- ions should always be numerous in drawing rooms, provided some thought is given to the choice of pattern and colour, for one inharmonious colour will completely spoil the whole room. There is a great rage for pain...
