LEGAL BUT ALMOST INHUMAN. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 31 October 1884
LEGAL BUT ALMOST INHUMAN. The case of " Roebuck v. the Norwegian Titanic Iron and Coal Company " was heard in the Queen's Bench division London recently. It was an action by the widow of a man who had been engaged in the service of the company in coal mining. There was a fire in the. mine, which was öot discovered, through the negligence of the company'* manager, whose duty it was to inspect the mine ; and, in consequence, part ; of the mine was rendered' dangerous. In the course of their work the deceased and another man in the service of the company went down into the mine. The other man went into the part that was dangerous, and was suffocated and became insensible. The deceased man, i anxious to save him though warned of the danger-went to rescue him'; and clung to his body, trying to drag it out bf the reach of the suffocating gas, until he himself felt its influence and was beginning to succumb to it. Still, with heroic self-devotion, he dung to his companion's body and persis...

THE WORLD'S FACTS, A remarkable exhibition of the inefficiency ot tome of the British regular troops was made on July. 8, at a sham fight near the oaasp at Aldershot. Hundreds of the soldiers displayed an otter, lack of ?tamma, and fell out of (he ranks during the evolu- tions. Many were sunstmek and others ware in- capacitated by sore feet, summer eomplaint and other ailments.

Some interesting figures with regard to the growth of the establishment belonging to Herr Krupp at Hessen have just been published. In 1860 the Essen foundry had only 1764 workmen, that number had risen to 7084 ten years later, and it ia now upwards of 90,000. Counting the women and children Herr Krupp's establishment gives em- ployment to 65,881 persons, of Whom 89,000 live in houses belonging to their employer. The foundry is divided into eight sections, and there are ll blast...

The engineer m charge of the'train was slowing up to cross the bridge, and the train came 'almost to a stop on the structure. He then put on a little extra steam to bring the train over when the biidge gave way; When he found the bridge breaking he blew the alarm whiste, and continued to sound it until - the, engine itself went under water. It was - .believed that by this warning a' number of people were able to jump from the bridge . inip the river, and save themselves by swimming. One car left the track, and this, it was said, was the only thing that prevented-, the whole train ; from being thrown into the river. As it was, the engine and, six cars weo precip...
OUR ESTIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 31 October 1884
OUR ESTIMATES. THE details of estimated revenue and expenditure of the Northern Territory for the year ending 30th June, 1885, have just come to hand. The revenue for that period is put down at £100,077 10s. lld, while the expenditure is made up to an exactly similar sum. The summary is an interest- ing one in both departments. In the revenue estimates, land sales are expected to realise the largest amount, viz., £30,000, Customs coming next with £25,000, or an anticipated increase over the receipts for tile same period of last year of £2,18618s 8d. Bents, Licences, Sic., for Crown Lands, are estimated to yield £23,000, or £2000 over the estimate for 1883-4, and little less than £100 under the sum received from this source during that time. Last year it was estimated that the revenue ob- tained from rainers' rights and other fees pertaining to goldfields would amount to £600, but the figures show that only |£292 13s. 2d was received ; the estimates for the following year depend upon...

For convenience of those residing m the interior, the medicine is put up in a convenient form. The trial of one bottle will prove its virtue as a. remedy for the disease for which it is. specially intended. Testimonials. The following extract from Mr, E. IL KENNEDY'S book " Four years in Queens- land," will suffice to show the value of this Medicine: " There are numerous Fever and Ague Medicines advertised; but Ï cannot in justice quit this subject without recom- mending that made and sold by Mr.; BERKLEY, of Queen-street, Brisbane. I took some into the bush in a concentrated form; a few drops completely cured the disease in every instance in which I tried it, and often prevented its coming on. No one should be without it, and he should guard that glass bottle as his life in all his wanderings." Boma, Maranoa. District^ ...

TOPICS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 31 October 1884
TOPICS OF THE DAY. . Who's to be. flogged? A. G. Taylor, ; member for Mudgee, says nobody. This, ~: of i course, might be expected, and, of course agaiu, he says so in that style of splay-footed " eloquence so much affected by men who ? : would appear to be what they are not. Says he :-" Flogging is barbarous in its opera . tion, vindictive in its purpose, a relic of the old Mosaic dispensation, and in direct %pontiontothe Gospel of Christ." School boy gag is not a suitable thing to deal with " von a subject so important as this. Any in- telligent boy of 15 can sling out these well balanced phrases that balance nothing. Then was hope that the tall man would do some good work. He appears to have , spoilt the promise of his youth, and settled down to the old hanky pank. Either he knows nothing, or he has got so prematurely "'cocky''that he thinks the public knows noshing. The Andersen case has started ibis discussion, and the papers divide on the subject. Should a man, under any cireu...

The Education Act. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 31 October 1884
. «The éducation Act. Tbs Act ù in no Auger -from the .clérical agita- tion, because nobody peja attention to the wildly extravagant talk of gentlemen who nae the words "in- fidelity," " pickpocket," ère., in deecmbing the pro- bable effecte of a purely, secular education. Sacha system of publie inststtstioB hw never been tried, for one thing, br, if tried, eertsinly not in Aus- tralia, as a glance at the schoolbooks amply testifies. The danger is pretty well put in the GOTTLBUBN HERALD, and consista in departmentalism. We get rid of political patronage only ' to be tyranised over by a sluggish department. ' We spend over half a inUlionaycar on education, but have no sort of direct voice in its expenditure. The press has called attention to the matter often enough, but years pass and nothing is done, while the system of public instruction becomes gradually dissociated from popular control ind sympathy, and depart- mental government reigns supreme. This , is a result which was delibe...
Rushing a Common. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 31 October 1884
Rushing a Common. There waa a land rash as Yong when it was found the common had not been properij reserved from selection and 8240 acres taken hp. This recalls a Kttle episode of.'10 yea» ago. Mayor M'DoweQ, of Ballarat, having heard or learnt somehow that there had been some little techni- cality neglected in the GAZETTE proclamation bf the common, went ont one fine morning and pegged ont thé whole thing. It cost a good deal of money to dislodge James. We call attention to this matter as a very argent one. Town derk* are very fre- quently slovenly-in their work, and care about nothing bot their salaries and how to please one or two influential oounefllora. Sometimes, however, the town elerie ie not -half as big a Jool as hs ap- pears, and by leaving a slight flaw in a municipal contract, or in an arrangement for a reserve, he can manage to lay his friends on to a good thing. In speaping of this we have no grounds whatever for believing'that anything of the kind has occurrad at You...
