THE CHINESE RIOTS. THE BRITISH ULTIMATUM ACCEPTED. LONDON, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
THE CHINESE RIOTS. THE BRITISH ULTIMATUM ACCEPTED. London, September 30. It is officially announced that the Chinese Government have complied with the British ultimatum demanding the degradation of Liu Ping-Chang, Governor-General of Szechuen, who in May and June of the present year in- stigated a series of anti-foreign riots in his province at Changtu, in the course of which the Canadian Hospital and Mission houses, the China Inland Mission, the American Methodist Episcopal Mission, and &nbsp; the Roman Catholic Mission were entirely destroyed, the missionaries having the utmost difficulty to escape with their lives. In five &nbsp; cities all the missionary property was de- stroyed. Liu Ping-Chang, who has served the Go- vernment in various capacities since 1860, and had held his last office for the past nine years, has been dismissed from the service with ignominy. London, October 1. Since the arrival of the German squadron at Swatau, whither it was ordered partly ...
ASHANTEE. THE SITUATION CRITICAL. LONDON, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
ASHANTEE. &nbsp; THE SITUATION CRITICAL. London. September,30. The situation in Ashantee has become ex- ceedingly critical. The King of Coomassie, whose claim to the title of Sing of Ashantee the British Govern- ment decline to admit, is incensed at the refusal of the British Foreign and Colonial Secretaries to accord to his envoys a hearing for their protest against British intervention in the affairs of his territory, and especially against the installation of a British resident in Coomassie, which Mr. Chamberlain, speak- ing in the House of Commons the other day, declared to be necessary if the practice of sacrificing human beings was not to be &nbsp; revived. The British Government persist in their re- fusal to hold any direct intercourse with the King, or to receive from him any communica- tion except such as may be transmitted through the Governor of the Gold Goast, on the ground that the King is not a ruler sufficiently impor- tant to be treated with directly,...

DEATH OF PASTEUR. SUCCUMBS TO PARALYSIS. London, September 29. The death, from paralysis, is announced of Louis Pasteur, the eminent French scientist, aged 73. The French Government have decided to accord a State funeral to the remains of Dr. Pasteur. London, September 30. The English and French newspapers are unanimous in lamenting the death of Louis Pasteur, the eminent French scientist, whom they style the foremost scientist of the age. M. Louis Pasteur. Born at Dole, in the French department of Jura, in 1822, Louis Pasteur took his medical degree in 1847, and was in the following year appointed professor of physic at the Faculty of Sciences. In 1856 he was awarded the Rumford medal for his researches on the polarisation of light. His enquiries as to fermentation, the preservation of worms, and the propagation of zyxptic diseases in silk worms and domestic animals are well-known. He showed by numerous experiments that it was possible to attenuate the virulence of injurious micro-...
ARMENIA. FURTHER OUTRAGES. LONDON, September 29. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
ARMENIA. FURTHER OUTRAGES. London, September 29. Further outrages on the Christians are re- ported from Armenia. The Mohammedans of Antioch in searching for arms raided a church whilst service was in progress. The wor- shippers, who were well supplied with arms, resisted vigorously, but were overpowered after 10 of their number had been slain. London, September 29. In order to enforce compliance with the demand of the British Government for the institution of a system of reform in the government of Armenia Sir Michael Culme-Seymour, admiral in command of the Mediterranean Squadron, has sent 17 men-of- war to Lemnos, an island at the entrance of the Dardanelles. The Sultan is reported to be greatly alarmed at the vigor with which the British are pressing their claims. The directors of the New Zealand Shipping Company have declared a dividend at the rate of 4 per cent., the amount of £4,449 being carried forward to the next year. &nbsp;
MR. MEAGHER IN EXPLANATION. Sydney, October 1. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
MR. MEAGHER IN EXPLANATION. Svdnev, October 1. In the Legislative Assembly to-day Mr. Meagher made a personal explanation with regard to the Dean case. He had prepared a written statement, which he read, prefacing it with a long argument as to the probability of Mr. Meagher. his making such a statement to Sir Julian Salomons, who was now a bosom friend of Mr. Justice Wihdeyer. He then read his state ment as follows :— "Being a candidate for Parliament the Daily Telegraph attacked me in three issues. I determined to sue the Telegraph ; purchased three copies of the paper; cut out the ex- tracts, and sent them over to Mr. Pilcher, Q.C., to advise upon. A few days after a supporter of mine from the Phillip division was anxious that I should take action in regard to the Daily Telegraph, so I sent for my clerk to see if he had Mr. Pilcher's opinion. He informed me that he had not, so I sent him over to see the cause of the delay. He came &nbsp; back with the answer that Mr. Pilch...
Original Poetry. WHEN THE TIDE GOES OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
Original Poetry. WHEN THE TIDE GOES OUT. Lay me to rest on the brown rocks shelving, To the swirl and sweep of the breakers din, &nbsp; Over the spot where the birds go delving &nbsp; &nbsp; And the spray will,break when the tide comes in. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Where the light will flash from across the &nbsp; water, &nbsp; Through the long dark night, till the new born day, &nbsp; May another shine in the dim hereafter To lighten me over the trackless way. May it flash from a brighter and higher beacon When I set sail in my lonely craft, Stronger and clearer than yon, I reckon, Lighting the darkness fore and aft. When my moorings slip for the last long sailing, And the tiller lies in my stiffened hand, May the sea be smooth and one clear voice hailing, To pilot my boat for the borderland. Where time is not numbered by years that run, And years are as days; I'll watch and wait For the sound of the feeble oars tha...
LADIES' GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
LADIES' GOSSIP. There are eight ladies who hold the rank of colonel in the German army, namely, the Queen of England, the Empress of Germany, the Empress Frederick, the Queen of Holland, her mother the Queen-Regent, the Duchess of &nbsp; Connaught, the Princess Frederick Charles, &nbsp; and the Princess Albert, wife of the Regent of &nbsp; Brunswick. &nbsp; &nbsp; Froken Alafia Johannsdottir, an Icelandish &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; lady, was present recently as the representa- &nbsp; &nbsp; ive of the Icelandish Women's Union at a &nbsp; &nbsp; political meeting at Thingvellir, Iceland, the &nbsp; first occasion on which a woman has attended &nbsp; a meeting of this nature in Iceland. The Comtessede Paris has presented a gold chalice to the Rev. Father Morley, of St Raphael's Church, Kingston-on-Thames, in &nbsp; &nbsp; commemoration of the marriage of the Duke ...
OUTRAGE IN RUSSIA. 300 SOLDIERS KILLED. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
OUTRAGE IN RUSSIA. 300 SOLDIERS KILLED. News has reached Berlin from St. Peters- burg of a terrible outrage, believed to be due to Nihilist machinations, at the artillery, barracks at Tula, one hundred miles to tbe south of Moscow (says the Vienna correspondent of the London Daily News under date, August 20). Definite and detailed information on the &nbsp; subject is very difficult to obtain, but it is alleged that a subterranean mine, which had &nbsp; been secretly laid well under the buildings, was &nbsp; suddenly exploded. Three hundred officers and many officers are reported to have been &nbsp; killed or wounded, while the buildings were &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; completely wrecked. The police at once &nbsp; &nbsp; carried out extensive domicilary visits in Tula and the neighbourhood, making many &nbsp; &nbsp; arrests, principally of persons suspected of &nbsp; &nbsp; holding revol...
THE CHINESE MASSACRES. LONDON, October 2. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
THE CHINESE MASSACRES. London, October 2. Professor Douglas expresses a doubt as to whether the Chinese Government are acting straight in respect to the punishment of the officials who were responsible for the recent massacre of missionaries at Ku Cheng. The Viceroy Lion-Ping-Chang, whose &nbsp; degradation has just been ordered by the Emperor, is, according to Mr. Douglas, identical with an official whom China pro- fessed to degrade in 1894. &nbsp; &nbsp;
ARMENIANS AND TURKS. A SERIOUS CONFLICT. LONDON, October 3. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
ARMENIANS AND TURKS. A SERIOUS CONFLICT. London, October 3. &nbsp; Intelligence has been received of a serious &nbsp; conflict between the Armenians and the Turks at Constantinople. It is stated that a body of 20,000 Armenians attempted to march to the office of &nbsp; Said Pasha, Grand Vizier of Turkey, in order to present a petition demanding redress for their wrongs. &nbsp; The patriarch of the Armenian Church tried vainly to dissuade them from making the attempt, but with shouts of "Liberty or death" they persisted in their march, until meeting with a check they shot Major Shervet Bey, aide to the Minister of Police, and several of the guards, who endeavored to bar their advance. &nbsp; &nbsp; A serious conflict ensued, the fighting being stubborn on both sides, upwards of 150 being either killed or wounded, the Armenians suf- fering the greatest loss, while subsequently 500 of their number were arrested. It is reported that the Su...
A WAIL FROM NEW AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
A WAIL FROM NEW AUSTRALIA. We have been shown a letter, received by her sister, from Mrs. Alfred Bridges, one of the settlers in New Australia, descriptive of &nbsp; her experience during the four months of her residence there. It is, according to the writer, a "poor place," from which many had de- parted since her arrival to the envy of others, who were prevented by want of means from following them. The houses are "miserable" and wanting in floors, and the food is "wretched stuff." White bread is un- &nbsp; known. Its place is taken by corn cake, with maize meal for porridge. Corned beef is sup- plied, varied occasionally by fresh beef. Butter is never seen. Treacle is allowed, and it was a red-letter day when the settlers were each pro- &nbsp; vided with six ounces of jam. Milk is getting scarce owing to the slaughter of the cows for their meat, and many of the animals were sold to pay the debts of the association. No money is coming in for produce, and th...
VICTORIAN RAILWAY SERVICE. INDIGNANT EMPLOYES. Melbourne, September 29. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
VICTORIAN RAILWAY SERVICE. INDIGNANT EMPLOYES. Melbourne, September 29. At the annual dinner of the Drivers and Firemen's Association on Saturday night some feeling of resentment was shown in connection with the report of .the Railway Enquiry Board. The assertion that "the whole service is dis organised, if not demoralised," was denied, and Mr. Ross, the secretary, denounced the report as an abortion and shame, and stated that instead of collecting evidence on which to base their recommendations the board appeared to have taken to their bosom a cast-off expert from a smaller colony than our own and swallowed him whole.
Football. THE FOOTBALL SEASON. A RETROSPECT. [By ONLOCKER.] [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
J ootbalL THE FOOTBALL SEASON; a retrospect!. [By Onlooker.] By the North Adelaides forfeiting their fix ture for Saturday last to the Norwoods the 1895 football season was brought to a sudden termi nation last week, and once again .attention will be turned to the cricket field. There has been nothing to specially mark the past season, and the poor attendances at the principal matches indicate a feebleness in public interest. The number of associated clubs was increased at the beginning of the season by the inclusion of the Port Natives, and although they com menced operations with a great flourish of trumpets they failed to impress the public favorably in subsequent contests. And the position they occupy on the association scoring list is sufficient indication of their strength. True it is that they brought out several promising juniors, and it is to be hoped that next season, under good management, they will come further forward. Tho South Adelaides had a comparatively easy task i...
Correspondence. THE COST OF CONVERTING CHINAMEN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
THE COST OF CONVERTING CHINA- MEN &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR Sir— Mr. John Richards has most ingeniously insulted (by a side thrust) every Scotchman by his allusion to John Bull 'owning tens of thousands of Jews, infidels, and Scotchmen.' The generous Scot usually takes no notice, of an insult of this nature, but puts it down to gross ignorance and ill manners. Thus men of John Richards's stamp begin to think they can always sneer with impunity, but they will find Scotchmen have plenty of spirit and ability to strike back. John Bull owning Scotchmen indeed ! The boot is on the other leg. The Scotch will bear comparison with John Bull in every respect, be it courage, learning, or philanthropy, but for meanness aud bragga- docio they will yield the palm to men of Mr. Richards's class — I will not say Englishmen, for I would not dream of insulting a generous people. I will not adm...

NURSE GRACE AND NEW AUSTRALIA. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir— Kindly Grant me a line to say that &nbsp; &nbsp; Nurse Grace, for whom I made an appeal &nbsp; &nbsp; some months, declines to return to South Aus- &nbsp; tralia, and the money forwarded by me for her &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; use to the British Consul at Buenos Ayres has &nbsp; been returned. As soon as I receive also the &nbsp; amount which was lodged with Messrs. T. &nbsp; Cook & Son I will refund to the subscribers. - &nbsp; I am, &c., &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; J. DAY THOMPSON.
MISCELLANEOUS. VICTORIA. Melbourne. September 27. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
MISCELLANEOUS. VICTORIA. Melbourne. September 27. &nbsp; The mining registrar at Heidelberg has re- ported the discovery of a valuable quartz reef at Yow Yow, near Queenstown, within a few miles of Melbourne. A bag of specimens weighing 82 oz. it is estimated will produce 60 oz. of gold. It is said that they rival the richest exhibits from West Australia. The width of the reef is 15 in. and the depth of the find is 125 ft. The discoverers are all working men who have done a lot of prospecting. Sir James Patterson, speaking on the budget yesterday, said the Agricultural De- &nbsp; partment was doing nothing to help the pro- ducers. Mr. Tavener, who was absent from Parliament, calls attention to facts in refuta- tion and alleges that "When Sir James was in office he went about the country eating turkeys. The present Government export them." Two prospectors, Joyce and Hopkinson, sold a parcel of 224 oz. of gold at the Mint to day. They obtained it from a mass of quartz ...
