Curious Scotch Marriages. (Pall Mall Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Curious Scotch Marriages. {Pall Mall Gazette.} The farce of the Fife alleged maraagej equally contemptible and discreditable, has made it evidenfcthatideasrespectingwhat constitutes a valid marriage under the law of Scotland, not only erroneous but dangerous, axe widely entertained. It seems to be imagined, not by the lower classes that if a couple can be induced in any cir cumstances, no matter what motives, or with what feelings or views, to declare in the* presence of witnesses that they take each other for husband and wife, even though they should never live together, a real and. valid marriage has been constituted. A few years ago a strenuous, but fortun ately usuccessful, attempt was made to obtain a decision of the Court of Session that a marriage of this kind had taken place between a woman of disreputable character and a member of an old baronial family, decended from a younger brother of the ancestor of the Rojal Stewarts, and the I heir of a large estate, on the ground th...

Freetrade v. Protection. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Freetrade v. Protection. SIR HENRY PABKES and Mr. 0. R DIBBS are each energetically assuring theelectors of New South Wales that Codlin is the man, not Short, and it now remains to be seen whose as severations will receive most credence. The metropolis has ever been the stronghold of the Free Trade Party, and unless the Government obtain a large majority of seats in Sydney, the conntry districts will return Mr. DIBBS to power. Sir Henry, who to do him justice, can pnt his case mosf forcibly, details a -list of good things which his rivals are opposing, but stripped of unim portant issnes the coming battle will really be Free Trade v. Protection. So far si way from the scene of the struggle it is difficult to forecast the result, but the chances seem to lie with MB. DIBBS, who will be aided by the love of electors for a change. Protection, jfcoo, is " coming" in New South "Wales, and in deference to this spirit, the Leader of the Oppo sition has cast federation from his programme, le...

The Present Outlook. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Tlie Present Outlook. THEKE are times in the history of a country as of a voyage when decision of purpose, singleness of aim, and firmness of grip become specially imperative. A people like a crew may disport themselves or even play at mutiny with a fair wind and plenty of sea room; but when the storm note or the breakers1 roar rises on the ear, it is eveiy man to bis duty, the captain on the bridge, and a steady hand upon the helm. We do not mean to hint that there is upon us storm or before us breakers that need occasion alarm; but this must be emphatically said, that we have received the broadest intima tion a people can well receive that we are on the wrong track, that? persis tence in it were fatal, and that another course must be shaped and resolutely held if we are to reach port. Patriotism, or say self- preser vation^ for in this case that is the same thing, demands the immediate abandonment of the policy or of the counsels which have impaired the financial credit of the col...

A Queer Hypnotic Story. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

A Queer Hypnotic Story. A New York telegram in the Times states that the following extraordinary story, dated from Mier, Mexico, a town of 1500 inhabi tants, on the Bio Grande, 150 miles from its mouth, is published by the Sunday Sun. A myet riouB individual, who gave the name of Francisco Perez, arrived at Mier, and put up at the chief hotel of the town. Nothing unusual was noticed about the guest until at dinner on the second day one of the waiters went about the dining-room removing all the bottles of wine in front of the persons who were dining, bringing them all to the table where Perez sat. The guests were extremely angry, and called up the proprietor, who asked the waiter why he had token the wine. He replied that Perez had ordered him to do so, but Perez, turning ghastly white, denied that he had told the waiter anything of the kind. The latter, being disbelieved, was immediately dismissed. Du ing the after noon of the same day one of the guests at the hotel presented Perez ...

Scientific Notes. ON SOME OF THE CHEMICAL PEOPRTIES OF GOLD. XV. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

[BY A. W. GIERKE, F.CKS.] ON SOME OF THE CHEMICAL PEOPRTIES OF GOLD. XV. ARSENIC appears to have no influence on amalgamation unless water be present be is shewn in the following experiment. A email quantity, 10 grains, of white arsenic (" Rough on Rata" will suffice for the experiment) when placed in a small test tube of small diameter and heated, sublimes, and crystallizes out on the cooler inner surface of the tube, in brilliant diamond shaped crystals (octaliedra), and if a disc of gold, one of such discs as have been already described, be heated along with the arsenic in such a way that the arsenic crystallizes on the disc. It will then be found that the gold will still amalgamate freely, even passing under the crysta', bat never touching any place where the arsenic has fused without crystalling on to the gold surface. From this two conclusions may be drawn. (1). That the arsenic crystals merely lie on the surface without actually touching, and therefore shielding the surface. ...

Sir Samuel Griffith's InterStates Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Sir Samuel Griffith^ Inter States Scheme. SEVEBAL months ago when Sir Samuel GRIFFITH'S inter - states scheme fell like a bombshell in the camp of the Townsville Reparation League, and raised a clatter therein which has scarcely yet subsided, we pointed out that lor two reasons it would be policy for northern men to accept the proposals. One of these reasons was Chat the scheme accorded a measure of self-government, almost equal to absolute separation, and the other that it would be utterly useless toapproach the Colonial Office on the' subject of separation again until die scheme had been fully considered, and anyobjecrions thereto fully stated. We .then felt confident that the reasonableness -of the compi^ise -offered by the Premier would coin , mend his proposals to fcheSecretary State, and how hopeless it would be fc approach Lord Knutsfoed on the sobject now is shown in his letter to ?^mw-lgbBMAy» where he says; -; t'lSii^r^thepEoposals) if adopted would leraiie iQ^t of the pri...

Floating of the Queensland Loan. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

floating of (he Queensland Loan. } THE cable published elsewhere announcing the flotation of the j Queensland loan is a cheerful break I in the long ran of ill-luck which recently has so persistently stock to | Queensland. It now appears that the error was made in fixing the minimum too high, but it is hardly fair to blame the Colonial Treasurer for this, for he could scarcely, be expected to anticipate the firmness displayed by the lenders in holding out for a reduced minimum, and had Sir THOMAS M'ILWRAITH offered the debentures at 90 he would probably have been accused of a desire to play into the hands of London syndicates. It now appears that the credit of the colony is still good-were it not so we could not borrow at 3^ per cent-and that the loan simply hung fire because the lenders were holding out for the better terms which they have now secured. The loan will only add £1,329,050 to the indebtedness of^ the colony, for the balance, £1,170,950, is required to pay the debenture...

Withdrawal of Funds. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

Withdrawal of Funds. A BOOM in burglary may shortly be expected, a number of the residents of Charters Towers preferring for their money the security offered by their own homes to the protecting care of a paternal Government. Whether tbe course taken will be profitable to the capitalists who have shown their want of confidence in the solidity of existing institutions by withdrawing their money from the local Savings Bank depends of course on the enterprise of the burglars, who like the pool? aye always with us, and the invulnerability or otherwise of the establishments in .which the accumu tated capital is to be secreted. The heavy withdrawals which it is ru morfed have kept Mr. MACPHER sos and his assistants busy dar ing the last few, days may, of course, have been required to purchase Brilliants, Sunbursts or Victorias, but the impression is that they are due to a feeling of alarm on the part of some depositors, and to a desire of others to embarrass the Government.

BOXING. W. WALSH V. W. FOOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891

BOXING. W. WALSH Y. W. FOOT. 1 There was a real big house at the Skating Sink on Tuesday, to witness the fight between these two lightweights, and those there were | well rewarded, as the fight throughout was an interesting one, each man being bent on business. Walsh, who is a bit the bigger and heavier of the two, had undertaken to stop his opponent in eight rounds, and the general impression was that he would fail in his mission. In this public opinion was correct, as though he had a good bit the best of the fighting he was unable to stop Foot. At a little after nine the men were in the ring, and all preliminaries having been satisfac torily arranged time was called. In the first round Walsh commenced from the jump to make matters lively. Foot, however, missed the heaviest shots by ducking cleverly, Walsh however, kept boring in, and got a couple of uppercuts home, but without doing any damage, and honors were nearly easy at the end of the round. In the second round, Foot was on t...
