CANNIBAL MUTINEERS. Sydney, September 30. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 5 October 1895
CANNIBAL MUTINEERS. Sydney, September 30. The steamer Kurrara, which reached Port Jackson late to-night after a trading cruise around the Solomon Islands, brings news of a gruesome murder by cannibals at the group, whereby Captain Atkinson and Mr. Floyd, the mate of the trading schooner Naravoo, lost their lives. The Naravoo is a small inter-island trader, and the captain and the mate were the only two white men on board, the rest of the crew being natives. &nbsp; About the 7th of last month the vessel anchored off one of the islands of the Solomon Group, when seven men from Malayta form ing part of the crew formed a plan to capture the vessel. Accordingly at night they armed themselves with axes, stole up to the cabin where the captain and mate were sleeping, and butchered the two men in their sleep.

AN EXPLOSIVE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
AN EXPLOSIVE LETTER. An infernal machine addressed to Barcn Alphonse de Rothschild, of Paris, on being opened on August 24 exploded and seriously injured the baron's clork. Describing the occurrences the correspondent of the London Daily Telegraph says :— When the first rumors spread that the Anarchists had blown up tho bank of the Rothschilds a feeling cf consternation was apparent. The general question seemed to be another K-eigii of Terror, and of what service has been the extreme vigilance of the police in expelling all doubtful characters and in preventing the return of known Anar chists to Pans Y' Happily, the report that the bank was lifted to the skies proved an exaggeration. The object of the perpetrator of the latest outrage was, however, not to reduce a solid building to ruins, or even to kill peoples outright. The intention was more hideously cruel and satanic. It was to maim for life Baron Alphouso de Rothschild, and although I am glad to say this gentleman has not been...

THE PETERSBURG SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
THE PETERSBURG SHOW.. The eleventh annual Bbow in connection with thePetersburgjAgricultural, Horticultural, and Floricultural Society -was held on Wednesday on the local exhibition ground, and passed off very successfully. Generally .speaking the show was not as good as that of lasb year, as the number of entries ?was about 100 less; but still the 700 exhibits which occupied the grounds on Wednesday formed a very credit able display considering the season. The weather was favorable for the occasion, al though it was a trifle dusty, and during the day 1,800 people paid at the gates, the takings amounting to £80. Still this does not repre sent the whole attendance, as with subscribers there were about 3,000 people on the ground. There was a falling off this year of SO entries in horse stock, and this 'made a very big difference to the Bhow, as thiB section had al ways been regarded as one of the leading fea tures of the Petersburg shows. But Still the quality showed no depreciation, ...

AN ORANG-OUTANG'S llEVENGE. The following, from a resident of Malacca, is taken from t!io St. ''Louis O'lubc Denwerat :?— Although ruyliorise in the mountainous dis trict is but four hours from Peiiaug Over, the carriage route through the forost, one may reach the sea in JjaH that time on horseback along the river f front. The neighborhood abounds in wild animala, yet until six weeks agu I was not aware that orang-outangs are numerous in these parts. I made the acqu^igr tancc of the man of the woods at the -a)^e mentioned when returning from the coast on horseback. My Malay servant, raraua, a noted tiger hunter, fearless to the boue, was in my company. We came upon the apes quite unexpectedly within sight of my farmhouse There were 40 or 40 of them, a fact which is quite contrary to the convictioa of some of the noble gentlemen who write books 011 zoology. Instantaneously the memory of this Benteuce from an old-tinio text book— 'Orangoutang do not live in society, except when a pair...

[?] LONDON TABLE TALE. [From our Special Correspondent! London, August 23,'i895. Though the art of obstruction can— thanks to the closure— no longer be can-ted to the lengths which marked the famous sessions of 1878-81 it is still possible for an old Parliamen tary hand to abuse the legitimate forms of the House to ite great inconvenience. This was the unpleasant truth which Mr. Timothy Healy endeavored with considerable success to bring home to the Government on Monday last. His. expectation was no doubt that the ignorance of the new Speaker would materially assist his efforts. ' But in this the member for Louth proved out of his reckoning. Though Mr. Gulljvoccupied.the chair for over 11 hours with only 20 minutes intermission for a chop at 8 he was cool, wary, ; and unexpectedly acquainied with the great Parliamentary mystery of 'order.' Every attempt of the doughty Tim to strain the forms of the House Mr. Speaker nipped promptly in the'bud'; in fact it was soon recognised ? that ...

That it was an eloquent effort both friends and opponents acknowledged.
