Rhyursten's Cornen. CHRISTMAS IN PRISON. TOLD BY THE WARDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 February 1892

Pgtmiteifs dfamq. CHRISTMAS IN PRISON. TOLD BY THE WARTIBR. A HANDSOME lad and bright, Such a boyish open face; _ But he put a wrong before a right, Or he wouldn't be in this place, 'Twas a pity to send him here, For his like I never saw; Hut he's ruined now for life, I fear, But the law is-well, the law. Hardened by alley strife, Poverty, caie, and sin; Tainted afresh with prison life, Who'll take the poor lad in ? The taint of a prison bird Makes soft hearts hard sometime But a sadder tale I never heard Than the story of his crime. Shorn of his sunny hair, Bobbed of liis childish grace, And growing a look of " devil-may-care" Fast on Itis fair young face. And I think it a shame all through, That he ever here was sent, Though I am a servant true Of the law and Government. What is he here for 'Well, Stealing a loaf of bread, And hitting the owner, who took it away, A blow right on the head. Be was mad just at that time, Mad with hunger and fear, And sad it is that the Christmas chim...

To the Electors of the Barcoo. February 16th, 1892. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 February 1892

To flie Electors of the Barcoo. February 16th, 1892. CrENTLEMEN, - Tne representation of the Barcoo electorate having be come vacant by the death of Mr. F. R. Murphy, it now becomes your duty to elect a successor to our late lamented member, whose promising career as a statesman and whose useful services as representative of this con stituency have been brought to so pre mature and mournful a termination. It is with extreme diffidence, and only upon the kind and earnest solici tation of several of my friends in this electorate, that I have been induced to offer my services to the constituency; nor would I have responded to the very flattering requisition presented me unless I had been strongly of opinion that this electorate should re turn an entirely local representative: one who has had the experience of many years' residence in the district and a thorough knowledge of what would be most conducive to its pro gress and prosperity. I consider, in the first place, that the western di...

MUTTABURRA MEMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 February 1892

VvUrfTABCHKA MEMS. unit correspondent writes:-The Rev. S. Brown, of Arainac, arrived in town on Satur day, and preached a sermon both morning and evening, and had fair congregations. X was glad to see that the Human Catholics attended as well as the Protestants. This is as it should bo in the bush, as people of liberal minds know that we all meet to praise liod, and that all our efforts are in the one direction : to try and mark the Sabbath, which is generally carelessly kept in the bush.-The; efforts made to assist Widow O'Brien have been very successful, and Cobb & Co. have promised to make a separate collection, and I am sure tliey will never lose anything by it.-Mr. Ilollis send-off was a great success. There was an abundant supply of champagne and fruit; some of the speeches were very good. Mr. Ilollis spoke toucliingly of leaving the district that ho had resided in for so many years, and parting with so many of his old friends. Mr. AVnell had evidently forgotten his no...

THE HAZELDINE-BIRKETT CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 February 1892

THE HAZELDIXE-UIRKETT CASE. WIIEN once a man gets himself into the hands of the Pliilistines, to be correct, the police, it is with some difficulty that he is let go until a very lengthy period. The case of the two young men, Hazeldine and liirkett, who have been remanded from time to time during the past eight weeks, we are sure evokes the sympathy of ever}- one. The cause of delay in going on with the case is principally attributed to the Government, who appear to be unwilling to apply for a habms corpus to permit one of the conspiracy prisoners, who is the prosecutor, to be forwarded from the tombs in St. Helena to liarcaldinc. At the Court House on Saturday one of the defendants (liirkett) strongly protested against being kept in custody without bail for so long a period, and the magistrate no doubt thought it hard also, but he has now made up his mind to go on with the case on Saturday, and finish it up somehow. Mr. Macarthur is a humane and just man, and will not stand too muc...

JUNDAH NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 23 February 1892

JUXDAH NOTES. Ouu Jumlah correspondent writes :-The larrakin fraternity is noticeable the last lew nights, and Saturday night especially. Their foul language was shameful, and kept residents awake until a late hour. Although three police representatives are in town bad language is the order of the day, the police taking no notice whatever of it, and for the benefit of children in town it should be stopped if for nothing else.-Mr. Gougli, proprietor of the Pastoral Hotel for the last two years, retires from the business to-day. I believe Mr. Stan ford, owner of same, takes up the hotel busi ness, having been unable, so far, to let the place, as it is slightly in want of repairs.-On tlio 16th the Police v. Oldfield, concerning valueless cheques, was dismissed; also several minor cases. Mr. F. Nixon, P.M., and Mr. Wiley, J.P., leaves for Stonehenge this even ing.-Weather fine and very hot.

The bawker, who bad gone on before and had pitchcd his tent in the village joined tbe party, and as he did not come empty-handed he was voted a jolly good fellow, although perhaps the " Mountain Dew" did not taste so sweetly as it did a week before, when it was imbibed in tbe Tiddlywink scrub. Tbe day's racing formed the topic of conversation, and tbe bawker, who seemed filled to the brim with stories of every imaginable description and upon every imaginable subject, said be got properly sold once over a "dream," and he would tell them about it. He would call it "THE SAINT'S" DREAM. Many years ago now, when I was a gay young subaltern in a marching regiment, we were stationed at tbe town of Kilballys...

Jta and iomtMtrfs. AT the G-eneral Council Meeting of Australian Labor Federation held in Towns Tille last Tuesday, the report of the General Executive was read. The conclusion was in theBe words : " The General Executive, while chary of illusive expectations, considers that the immediate indications are for more peace ful times, the more so as it is utterly impos sible for the industrial depression to get mnch worse, and that wjth reviving times there is always less disposition on the part of employers to needlessly attack unionism."
