COLONIAL DEFENCE. LONDON, March 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 March 1891
COLOXFAL DEFENCE. IjOSTDOK, Marcli 12. Sir William Jervois, who has identified himself with the colonial defence scheme, speaking at the Royal Colonial Insiihite last evening, claimed that the scheme propounded by Major General Edwards in the paper read before the Institute, is identical in keeping with his, fir Win. Jervois', advice given in 1880. An attack on Australia would, he considered, be improbable, especially on a large scale. The land defence forces required were troops in the various capitals and at Thursday Island, under Federal con trol. He claimed the credit of having advised the doubling of the Australian Naval forces in 1881. Sir Charles Dilke contended that hostile light cruisers might probablv frequently attack Australia- The security provided at the coaling stations was not yet perfect It would, he considered, be ad visable to garrison them before any war took place. Lord Brassey said that much re mained to be done in providing garrisons for the coaling stations. ...

IMPERIAL FEDERATION. IiOsrDOK, March 12. Lord Carrington, when banquctted at the City Liberal Club, said in his speech, that the Australian Federation would greatly help to consolidate the union between Aus tralia . and Britain, the Nationalists made Australia confident of her strength by an unimpaired friendship with England.

Imports Of Frozen Mutton. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 March 1891
Imports Of Frozen lluttou. | j FEW people are aware that the im i ports of frozen mutton in 1890 have amounted over three million car cases, being fifteen times as many as in the year 1883, for example. As new vessels have arrived lately been fitted up for the express purpose of plying be wteen England' on one side, aud New j Zealand aud the River Plate on the I other, it is calculated that our imports | during 1891 will be nearly half as much again as those for the past year. 'jOieie s an uncomfortable feeling in the trade that supplies are likely to be excessive next year, partly I eeause of the arrangements made for the in creased' imports, but also because the the weight as well as the number of sheep in the United Kingdom has in creased in consequence of the abundant supp'y of feed .secured last summer. Imports of frozen mutton are esti mated at a quarter of the whole supply, aud, inasmuch as our native flocks are largely consumed locally, it may be supposed that cities like Lo...
Lawlwssness In Siberia [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 March 1891
Lan1e§§ne§§ lit Siberia SIBERIA lias no less a bad name for lawlessness than for climate, for convicts escape from confinement daring summer and prowl about preying- upon tiie inhabitants. This is often done with ihe connivance of the public atborities, it is f-aid, who not merely draw the allowance for the escaped convict but accept t art of the spoil when he leturns with the ap proach of winter, when no robber can live in the woods or on the roads through thi long months of severe frost. An attempt is about to be made to reform the adininistra- ion, chiefly with the view of separating the office of juge d'i.istriiction, 01 examining judge, from police functions. In each town or village of Western Siberia there is to be, according to the pro posal coming before the Imperial Council, a creation of justices i f peac*\ Tli^ present provincial tribunals will fu'fiil the functions of a court of ap peal. An increase of salary seems to also form part of the scheme. This latter direciion i...
"Ask a P'liceman." [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 March 1891
"Ask a P'licemaii." IT is satisfactory to know that by two magisterial decisions yestei day the the melodyAsk a p'liceman" is now entitled to be placed on the Index Expurgatorius of Scotland Yard. At Worship-street Mr. Montague Wil liams condescended to tnJer into a minute inquiry as to whether the whistling of this melody by a small boy constituted a sufficent provocation to a breach of the peace on the part of a constable. In the result he came sorrowfully to the conclusion that " there was no doubt the boy was impertinently whistling the air re fered to/1 He did not subsequently put on the black cap, but the tone of solemnity 111 which he announced liis his decision seemed to require some formality of that nature. By that decision a Carman chained wi'h aesalt by the police was sent to hard labour for fourteen days. The un fortunate man pleaded that he had done nothing worse than remonstrate with a nonstable who bad attempted to stop the boy's melody with a vulgar threat. Mr. Will...
Busting of a Water Pipe. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 March 1891
filiating of a Water DURING a temporary thaw at Lirerpool the other day the caretakers of Browr sfcreet Museum had to cope with a perplexing addition to the ordinary inconvenience of bursting' water pipes in the agitation of an alligator. The water was pouring into the building in great streams, and the animal, alarmed by this deluge, and the general commotion round him, became frantic and seemed likely to break out of his cage. Discretion, therefore, suggested that he should be first at tended to, and his removal to a quieter spot became for the moment more imperative than the stopping of the enormous flow of- water.
Adulterated Milk. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 18 March 1891
Adulterated Milk* " ADULTERATED milk" conveys to most minds only ihe notion of watered milk. It wou'd be well for consumers if it meant no more. Mr. Cassal, public analyst for the pa ish of St. Genre's Hai»over-cquar&lt;*, warns us of the peri's of the common practice of adulterating milk with borate ecld. It seems to be in favour with dairy farmers as means of preserving mill: in transit which is cheaper than re f ige ration. Milk vendors Like it,_ moreover, because it enables them to sell stale milk as fresh- Mr. Cassal tells ns as the result of his experience, that it is quite possible that a healthy infant taking a quart of milk daily would, absorb in that time twenty eight grains of the acid. As about one twelfth of that quantity is the Fliar ma copoeia dose for a child it would follow that such arajinfant would soon cease to 1-e a ?* healthy one. - Eminent author ities are cited in favour of the opinion that boivcu* acid tends to cause - diarrhoea and injure »he digest...
