Prisoners Awaiting Trial. New Gaol Regulation. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898

Prisoners Awaiting Trial. New Gaol Regulation. A new gaol l'egtilation. to take the place of the goal regulation No. 31, with reference to prisoners awaiting trial has been gazetted. It provides     that these prisoners shall be permitted at all reasonable times to see their legal advisor, as also any relations and friends requiring to see them in reference to their trail. Other relations and friends may be seen twice in each week, or   more frequently if there be special reason. Power is however, given to the Governor of the Gaol to refuse ad- mission to any such visitors, but the persons refused have the right of appeal to the Sheriff, and if necessary, to the Minister for Justice. These prisoners     are also to be permitted sufficient air and exercise consistently with safe     custody. Prisoners under examination will be allowed no communication in the prison, nor with any person except t...

The Premir's Popularity. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898

The Premir's Popularity. -----   The cordial and kindly reception   accorded in the country last week to Premier Reid serves to prove that whilst he he no doubt possesses a fair share of political opponents, he is at the same time rich in friends prepared to assist him and promote his politi- cal interests as far as they can. See ing that the Premier was cautioned by his candid; friends of the Opposition against going out into the couutry, for fear that he might be mobbed and killed, it was no light task which he recently undertook ; and the fact that he came through it all triumphantly is alike a tribute to the good sense and good heart of the people and to the popularity of the genial head of the Government. Everywhere he went he was received with warm expressions of approval, and though there were no doubt many in the big audiences whom he addressed who did not agree with his fiscal belief, there was not, through all the long trip he made, one dis- corda...

Floods in Queensland. THe flood waters in Brisbane reached their greatest height at half past three o'clock on Thursday morning, viz., 19, feet 5 inches above summer level, or one foot below the level of the 1890 flood, and about fifteen feet below   that of 1893.

A Great Canal. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898

A Great Canal. THE Lodon Times gives a very inter- esting account of a great canal, 1080 miles long, between the Baltic and the Black Sea; which is to be begun next spring, as the surveys are nearly,   finished. The new waterway is to be 217ft wide at the top and 117ft at the bottom, with a depth of 28½ft, which will enable the largest war vessel to pass through:- 'The canal begins at Riga,   :and follows the course of the River Buna as far as Dunaburg. Here the great excavations will begin which will   cross the watershed and connect the canal with Lepel, 0n the Beresina. That river will be utilised as far as its junction with the Daieper, when the latter will be followed to its mouth. Of the total length of the canal 875 miles will be in canalised rivers, leaving only 125 miles to: be dug. The canal is to be so strongly built, that it will allow vessels to steam six knots an hour. At that speed, seeing that the canal is to be lighted ; throug...

The Salvation Army. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 19 January 1898

The Salvation Army. Sir Walter Besant has been investi- gating the work of Colonel Booth in the mother country and its results, and communicates the fruits of his inquiries, and the conclusions he has arrived at, to the Contemporary Review. Speaking of the farm at Hadleigh, in Essex, which he regards as the greatest social experiment ever attempted, he pro- nounces it to be an achieved success, resulting, in a very great measure, from the unselfish devotion of the men and women who have carried it out. There are about 260 persons upon it, mostly taken from the streets and gutters,   morally and physically weak, " the wrecks of London, the wastrels of the   great ciiy, the helpless, hopeless wretches whom prison cannot reform and church, does not touch." About   55 per cent of these are permanently reclaimed, and not more than 16 per cent, relapse into their old habits. The farm is carried on at a cost of £4000 a year; but, as Sir Walter shows, ...

Items of Interest. A list of the successful condidates, in order of merit, at tho recent com petitive examination for admission to tho Public Service will bo found else where. In reporting to the Minister for Labour and Industry on the operations of the Labour Bureau for the six months just closod, the superintondant writes most hopefully of the changed condition of affairs in regard to the labour market. The diminution of which he wrote six months ago has been followed by still further diminu tion in numbers, and most, if not all the agitators have, he says, been sent to employment. Mr. C.reer explains that the improvement in the labour market is due to the benoficial effects of recent rains, which havo greatly improved the prospects of many farmers. The first series of the London wool 'sales for 1898 has opened with a strong market, pricos being equal to or in some instances up to 5 per cent, higher than the closing rates of last year.
