The shipment of frozen meat by the steamer Gothic, which reached London in excellent condition, is selling at from 2s. 8d. to 3s. per stone.

THE TROUBLE IN TURKEY. London. November 1. It is announced from Constantinople that the Sultan, fearing the outbreak of a Moham medan rebellion, has refused to permit Kiamil Pasha to retire. The Armenians are mean while fomenting a run on the banks, with a view to depreciating Turkish stocks, which already have fallen heavily. They are giving trouble in another way by assembling iu numerous centres in large numbers well anned. They now hold the Zeitoiun district against the Turkish troops. According to the correspondent of the Dady News diplomatists regard the position of affairs as more critical than ever. The Sultan in order to allay the commercial panic which the Armenians are endeavoring to promote has proclaimed a four months* moratorium, within which period the banks will be relieved of the obligation to return deposits, Intense disquiet prevails in the Turkish capital, aud the rival political factions are combining against the Government.

EXECUTION OF LYNCH. INSTANTANEOUS DEATH. LEAVES A CONFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
EXECUTION OF LYNCH. INSTANTANEOUS DEATH. LEAVES A CONFESSION. The closing scene in connection with the Balaklava tragedy was witnessed in the Ade- laide Gaol on Wednesday morning at 8 o'clock, when the murderer George Horace Lynch was hanged, in accordance with the sentence pro- nounced 28 days before by his Honor Mr. Justice Boucaut, for the murder of Donald McPhee Ross at Balaklava. The execution was carried out without the least hitch, owing in a very large measure to the marvel- . lous frame of mind the condemned man was in. William Brown displayed wonderful cool- ness when he was executed last year, but Lynch— Lynch is an assumed name— met his doom with much more courage. Indeed it is almost beyond conception how any man could face death with such extraordinary bravery. Lynch had about nine hours' sleep on Tuesday night and the first thing he asked for on Wednesday morning was his breakfast, as he was very hungry. Mr. Berry, the East-End City Missionary, was at the gaol at a ve...

Yeatman and Field, justices, Stephen Crowe was charged by the police with trespassing and turning off stock from section 516, the property of Mr. D. Smith. The defendant pleaded not guilty.

THE SOUTH-EAST. Narracoorte, November 2. — The Local Court had a lengthy sitting on Tuesday last Mr. C. C. W.

Mr. A. Wallace con- ducted the case for the appellant, and Mr. F. W. Davison appeared for the respondent.

Kay for £5 damages for trespass of cattle on plaintiff's land in the hundred of Narra- coorte, and the damaging of fences by defen- dant's cattle entering plaintiff's land. The evidence tendered being of a very contradictory nature, the court adjourned to inspect the fence in question. A verdict was given for 2s. damages, with no costs,— A young man named Tobiasson, was jamm...
THE BURRA. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE BURRA. Burra, November 5. — At the Redruth court this morning, before Messrs. P. Lane and T. W. Wilkinson, George Rickards was charged on an information laid by Mr. William Fletcher, of the Burra Hotel, with taking and converting to his own use a pair of ponies and a buggy. It appears that Rickards visited Burra on or about September 25, and got the ponies and trap on hire to visit several parts of the district on business. He, however, finally left the ponies and trap at Mannahill, and went en route for Sydney by rail. The consequence was that a warrant was taken out for his arrest. This was accomplished at Albury on Tuesday last, and Police-Trooper Benham, of Kooringa, was ordered to that place to bring the defendant over. This was done, and the result of to-day's hearing was that there was not sufficient evidence to warrant Rickards being committed for trial. The information was dismissed. Mr. Winnall acted on behalf of the in- formant. No one appeared for the defendant. — &a...

DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST. Angaston. November 6. : Mr. Thomas Nock, a very old colonist, died at his residence on Monday, the 4th inst., at the advanced age of 93 years. Mr. Nock was born in Tipton, Lancashire, and left England for New Zealand with his wife and family in 1842, but after living there for 18 months he, on account of disturbances with the natives, came to South Australia. He lived in Adelaide for 10 years, being engaged during that period in the building trade. After this he came to Angaston, and has been residing here ever since. After being in this colony about two years he, with his wife and two children, made an attempt to return to England, embarking in the ship Har- pooner, but on account of a change of captains and leakage of the ship it was several weeks before they could get away, and it was even- tually found necessary to discharge a quantity of copper ore and run into Sydney. Mr. Nock left the ship at this port and returned to Adelaide. His first wife died ab...

A TRIO OF EXECUTIONS. EMMA WILLIAMS HANGED IN MELBOURNE. &nbsp; Melbourne, November 4. &nbsp; Emma Williams, who was convicted of the murder of her child at Port Melbourne on August 13 last, was executed in Melbourne Gaol this morning in the presence of about a dozen persons. Pubfic excitement was aroused over the murder when it was first discovered owing to the callous and unfeeling way in which the deed was done and the careless attitude of the mother afterwards. The victim, who was only two years of age, was taken by its mother to the pier in the Sandridge Lagoon, where she tied a stone to its body and pushed it into the water. After her conviction the Anti-Capital Punishment League made strenuous efforts to &nbsp; obtain a reprieve, chiefly because the con- demned woman alleged that she was pregnant. Medical examinations did not support that statement, and it was discovered on Friday last that the condition which lent color to the woman's statements was p...

THE MELBOURNE CUP. VICTORY FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA. WON BY AURARIA. MAGNIFICENT WEATHER. Melbourne, November 5. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE MELBOURNE CUP. VICTORY FOR SOUTH AUS TRALIA. WON BY AURARIA. MAGNIFICENT WEATHER. ? » Melbourna November 5. The Melbourne Cup of 1895 is a thing of the past ; and Mr. David James, ' ' The King of Kapunda,' is the hero of the occasion, sharing his honors with the beautiful mare, Auraria, and his excellent trainer, Mr. John Hill, of St. Leonards. This is the first occasion since The Assyrian's year that the Cup has been won by an Adelaide owner, although I)unlop, the winner in 1889, was an Adelaide-bred one as well as The Assyrian. As Mr. James made no Becret that his mare was very well and had been doing excellent work, many of his friends must have benefited by the advice he gave them to back her for a bit. But the win has not been such a general one for Adelaideans as 'might have been expected, owing to her overthrow in the Derby and the great prominence that other recent performers were thrust into in the betting market. However, it is highly satis factory that so good a sport...
