THE DUKES OF HAMILTON. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 June 1894

THE DUKES OF HAMILTON. A personage .who, in my early days, was all-powerful in the Lowlands, was the Duke of Hamilton, the grandfather of the present Duke. He inherited in some measure his father's grandeeship of manner, for never was such a magnico as the tenth Duke, the ambassador o the Court of Russia in the tinme f the Empress Catherine. When I knevw him he was very old, but held himscf straight as any grenadier. He always, dressed in a military laced undress coat, tights, and Hessian boots. When lie showed any visitor over Hamilton Palace he in sisted on opening every door himself, and then made the lowest obeisance to each lady who passed him. I have seen him walk down a long drive bare-headed in a pouring rain while conducting a lady to her carriage. At the time of .his son's the late Duke's-t arriage to the Princess Marie of Baden, hit. satisfaction and pride were unbounded. He arranged a triumphal progress from the borders of the county to Hamilton Palace in honour of her S...

GEESE THAT COST 105 DOLLARS EACH. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 June 1894

GEESE THAT COST io, DOLLARS EACH. One of Senator Mitchell's first cases became famous in Oregon as the "goose case." A poor German owned four geese, which were killed by a wealthy but unscrupulous citizen of Portland. The German retained Mitchell, and the wealthy man employed "Lanndelet": Williams. The damages claimed were 20 dols., but the rich man by perjuring himself got a verdict in his favour. The German was in despair, but Sena tor Mitchell, knowing the character of the rich defendant, advised his client to take a back seat in the leading saloon of the place that night to see if the man would not acknowledge that he had shot the geese, in the presence of witnesses, and if lie did to note their names. It turned out as he thought. The rich man made a night of it, and celebrated his victory by treating his friends. He told them that he had shot the Dutchman's geese, but "that blanked little ?ittshbrg lawyer of a Mitchell couldn't prove it." Upon this Mitchell demanded a new trial...

SA PRBIENDLY LEAD." HOW s0Mta PEOPLE RMISE Ton WN?fD. Perhapa the most curions method of ;aising the wind is that known as the " friendly lead." The writer obtained she fcllowing interesting information re specting this strange custom from the proprietor of a public-house situated in s poor part of London. The father of a family falls ill, or the wife dies, or a child has to be buried, or a bread wi'ner is clapped into gaol for a month or to: than is tle time for the gooe-natured lead "with a view to assisting the distressed ones. Suppose the case of the mother of a family of children having died. A bosom friend of the husband immnediately makes arrangements for a "lead," and this is how he sets about it: He goes to the landlord 'of the public honse most pctronised by the bereaved family, and asks his permission to hold the lead in the taproom on some early Saturday evening.

ORATORY AND ORATORS. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 June 1894

ORATORY ANDI ORATORS. A paper read: before the Local branch of the A.N.A., by Mr; W. A. Watt. Perhaps there is no Art more worthy of cultivation, in a community which is favored with democratic institutions, than the Art of Public Speaking ; or, as it is appelied when in its highest de velopment, Oratory. The brief con sideration, therefore, of some of its phases, cannot but be productive of good results. In Social, Educational, and political circles, Oratory-in these latter days of tile nineteenth century-has acquired an influence, second only in importance and extent, to that exercised by the Press. In fact we ilay be pardoned for attempting a parody on a well-known proverb, when we say "Thle tongue is mightier than the sword." Poetry has been designated * the Crown of natior.'s literature,' and just as correctly may Oratory be termed, ' the Crown of a nation's social and political life.' We ate a free people! We govern ourselves,-or rather- we instruct car representatives how the...

M'CCMB'S ABILITY. "They may say what they please about Warden McComh and his jute factory, but I saw him do something one day that made me admire his executive ability,' remarked an ex-San Quentin guard, as he b!-=w the smoke from his cigarette into the face of a lady passing along Kearney-street yesterday. "What wanderful thing was that ?":' asked a politician who had been refused employment at the most popular peni tentiary in California. " It was rather amusing," continued the other, "and nobody but McComb would ever have thought of it. Late one afternoon we got word that Governor Waterman was to visit th. prison next day. What did McComb do but call out several hundred men and start them into changing the garden plot along the principal walk. They tore up the lawn until we who were looking on thought it was-going to be ruined, bt't at last we saw what it all meant, for there in mas sive green letters stood cut the word " Waterman."

Correspondence. WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 8 June 1894

Oorrespondence. i WOMiEN'S SUIFF-R AGE TO THE EDITOR. Sir,--hose who advocate Women's Suffrage either misconceive or ignore the true end of government. They fall into a fallacy of regarding .government as an et?d instead of as a meanis to an end. They regard Government to some extent as a machine for giving effect to fads and dispensing" imtragiotry rights:" instead of a mneans where trute rights and liberties are protected from aggres sion, and justice maintained between man and mlan: Mr. Watt's letters on Women's Sutf rage exemplify this. He has not at tempted to show that the extension of the franchise to women would be followed by btneficial effects, that abler men would be returned to Parliament, that better laws would be made. that the condition of the nation would be im proved, that Parliament would be more capable of performing its proper func tions, that the true rights and liberties of the people would be protected better than at present, or evenl that the con dition of wo...
