THE COMMONWEALTH. f .MELBOURNE , CELEBRATIONS. - . *v MELBOURNE, March 1./ Uunng the week a fair measure of pro gress has been made in planning the general scheme in connection with the reception of. the Duke and Duchess of York at the opening of the Federal Parliament. The committees, representing Cabinet and the city council, are now hard, at work , ar ranging details of the general scheme; \ ' ' The Government, whilcanxious that, the demonstration should be worthy of Mel bourne, is also anxious to guard against anything approaching the laVish' expendi ture of .the Commonwealth celebrations in Sydney, and as an indirect result of this cautious policy, the various public bodies and citizeas generally have so far shown no eagerness' to incur the. expense involved in doing their part towards the decoration . of the city.

SHORT ROUTE NIGHT TRAIN. A movement is on foot to induce the Rail ways Commissioner to run a night train from Port Pirie to Adelaide via Blyth, say once a week until the 6ystem has had a trial. At present persons wishmg to travel from/Fort Pirie at night have to undertake tlie long tedious' journey via Petersburg, iind not only have they to put up with the discomfort and lose the time involved in travelling an unnecessary 60 odd miles, but they are called upon, to pay for the added mileage 'they are compelled to travel. The Railways Commissioner has considered the question, and, in view of the-small and un satisfactory results accruing from a similar experiment made to Mount Gambier, he is. not; prepared to try : the- ^experiment from Port Pirie unless there is some more 'defi- nite-statement' from the residents and bum pess people of 'that town that such a scheme would be acceptable to a. -large number of nporilc/

The Register ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1991. REAL NAMES IN NOVELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 2 March 1901

ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, MAJiQri 2, 'lOM.. REAL NAMES IN NOVELS. The ancients Lad a proverb which forbade the utterance of anything but good respecting the dead. In. modern times, however, this rule of conduct, like many others founded on the wis dom of our ancestors, would . appear to be in danger of being wholly- dis carded. S.onic novelists, indeed seem to act upon an exactly contrary motto based upon the fact that even the descendants of the long-departed have no status in a law court, and therefore may be insulted not only with impunity, but even with the greatest of profit. The majority of fiction writers, no matter how hard pressed they may lie for a new sensation,' will hardly care to run the risk of a prose cution for libel by sketching the cha racters of living personages in un favourable lights. It may generally be taken for granted that, when some ob scure personage steps forward and makes complaint respecting a .portrait alleged to have been drawn from him self by a successf...

THE GRAND OPERA SEASON: "THE BOHEMIAN GIRL." [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 2 March 1901

THE GRAND OPERA SEASON. ???? 'THE BOHEMIAN GIRL.' Michael William' Balfe, a genial Irishman, born nearly 93 years, ago, wrote quite a number of operas that in his day achiev ed a transient popularity, but- his - chief work,- 'The Ikiliemmn Girl,' -produced* in. 1843, appears likely to last as, long as* there is a public. who: appreciate pure, simple melodj\ Balfe possessed no claims to. be considered a great musician. Tp'paraphrase a familiar saying, lie knew' but little har mony and less counterpoint, and the popu larity ofrhis chef d'oeuvre rests entirely on its L-alt-dozen or so cnarmiug ballads. No doubt Balfe had considerable musical abili ty, but he was lacking in' the technique of tlie t-omposei's art, and having once caught the ear of thesMiblic- with his pretty, tunes, he appears to have rested quite satisfied .with the quality of his productions. 'It is related that at the zenith of his popularity a ? less successful writer ? once ? approached him, with a view to taking le...

AX HONOURED APE. A public statue to an ape is the latest French project For some years past one Of the most familiar figures in the streets of the town of Grenoble has been a remarkably intelligent chimpan zee named Charlemagne. This extreme ly manlike ape was a general public favourite,. and' as it went about, clad in a. suit of corduroy, it might often— espe- cially' when standing at the corner of two thoroughfares— have been mistak en for a diminutive man. As a rule, Ijowever, it preferred to walk on all fours, and only stood erect when pursu ing its favourite amusement of peering into shops and rooms. It would turn the handle of a door and look around upbn the inmates so comically that no one ever had a gruff word for the ani mal, more especially as its fondness for young children and its extreme tender ness with babies disarmed any fears of its ever doing violence to any one. At sunset in the summer months, when the verandahs of the cafes were filled with men smokihg and sippin...
