NOBLEMAN'S STRANGE CAREER. Joseph Lodochowski was arrested in a Vienna hotel for stealing coal, clothes, and jewellery.

SPORTING NOTES. [Br aA'-; AjiV*-.' In reference to the weights for the. two big Spring handicaps, I presume that 70a have already gone through the list, and doubtless seen the handling of them by one or other of the Southern scribes, there* fore I shall not extend on the subject too long, especially as the first declaration will be due on the 3rd August next, and conse quently give me another opportunity te deal with the subject and see to their special merits. Of course I am not going, at this stage of the business, to try to pick the winner of each of these events, as voa know it is qnite hard enough to pick a starter (let alone a winner), aa mast punteis know to their cost. I will simply content myself with selecting a few-say half a dozen-which to my fancy are likely to distinguish themselves at Caul field Cup time, analysing their weight and performances, with pedigree thrown in. If all goes well with them till then, I have confidence the following will not lower tlieir colours...

LOCAL INDUSTRIES. ALBERT PARK BREWERY. If the dictum of tin* poet Byron, that " man, being reasonable, mast get j drank,** coupled with the farther asser tion on the part of the same distinguished authority that "the hest of life is but intoxication," is held to he of any force and effect in our enlightened generation, then it can be said with truth that even thus far inland satisfactory provision has been made by one of oar enterpris ing citizens for the promotion of human felicity, in so far, at least, as. it can be influenced by a copious aiul wholesome supply of that light and spnrkliti£ liquid (with a bead on it) which approximates somewhat closely to the nectar of the Olympian gods.

SUKE SIGN OF HEALTH. Worry is a curse and a source of much 1111 Iiappiness.

HOOLAN INTERVIEWED. A LABOUR MEMBER'S OPINIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 4 July 1896
HOOLAN INTERVIEWED. A LAIIOUK MEHNER'H OPINIONS. John P. Hoolan is without question one of the most striking personalities in Austral in. In his complex nature the levity of the humourist is blended with the fiery earnestness of the enthusiast. Without his humour Hoolan would be n fanatic; without his enthusiasm he would be a clown. The blending of those two qualities has made John Hoolan one of the wisest, wittiest, shrewdest, and most useful public men in the colony of Queensland. Morally, Mr. Hoolan is a man among men. He is one of the truest and staunchest of friends, and his self-abne gation in order to give Glassey a place in the Legislative Assembly was beyond all praise. A nobler heart than John Hoolan's does not beat in all Queens land. Hoolan is a self-made man, and he mav b; pardoned if now and then he manifests a tendency to worship his maker. He began life as an unlettered miner, and by sheer grit, pluck, talent, and enterprise has passed from the mine to the press, and...

ELECTORAL REFORM. AN EDITOR ON THE WARPATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 4 July 1896
ELECTORAL REFORM. AN EDITOR ON THE WARPATH. Every year emphasises the fact thnt politics is a mere game of shuffle, and the time is not far distant when the term, politician, will be used as a re proach. We are not sare whether hiding the little pea will not shortly come to be regarded as a more respect able game, and that men who hare a word or a conscience will shrink from risking the violation of either by seek ing to entar Parliament. If the Queens land elector cannot find happiness out side a Fool's Paradise, he need have no fear of deft and willing hands to let down the slip-rails for him so that he can gambol therein to his heart's con tent-if he enjoys being doped, he will find men ready to dope him. But his sublime stupidity goes beyond him in its effects ; it iB not only a grim menace to honast legislation, but it will exalt cunning and duplicity to the rank of fine arts. When the atrong knead man who dares to say what ha dares to do has to stand aside time after time to m...
