EUROPEAN TELEGRAMS. (AGE.) LONDON, May, 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 1 June 1882
EUROPEAN TELEGRAMS. (?.?K) Loxno, May, 29. The moonlight bands are committing fresh crime in Ireland.' They have re cently made another murderous raid, the scene of operations, being on this occasion, County Kerry. The police have failed to find any definite clue to the murderers of Lord Frederick Cavendish and Mr. Burke. All the persons hitherto arrested on suspicion have been discharged, as there was no evidence forthcoming to connect them with the outrage. The Nihilists are still persevering in their secret plots against the existing order of things in Russia. The police, on the other hand, are. exercising the utmost vigilance to counteract their designs, and have recently made a number of fresh arrests at St. Peters burg. Serious riots have occurred amongst the students atteiding the University of Paris. The opposing factions having come into violent collision, a number of students were seriously injured before the disturbances were quelled. The new tariff adopted by the Spanish...

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 1 June 1882
SPORTING NOTES. The tist meeting of the season of the Gipi?land Coursing Club was concluded on Fridaylast, the judge pronouncing the winner to be 3Mr. Ellia's Be Happy, Flirta. tion as runner-up, and Medea third dog. There seems to be a few complaints in reference to the way the office of judge was' fulfilled, but of course he cannot please everybody. His greatest mistake appears to have boon that in some cases he did not follow the dogs, but merely watched them from a distance. This may be accounted for by his not having a good horse, and if such be the case, the club a?ould try and improve matters next rece meeting. Our Stratford friends are becoming quite extravagant in foot-races, for we believe that a match has been arranged between Bernard Hughes and James Mitchell, for £10 a-aide, to be run at Stratford on Saturday, 10th June. The nominations for the Melbourne Cup, 1882, willbe received uptill 4 p.m. on Monday next, 5th Juno. A coursing match for ?£50 has been arranged betwee...
