Is it Forgetfulness? [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

Is it Forgelíuliiess ? A EECENT advertisement in a well known London daily gives an amusing view of human carelessness, if that be the true name of the faculty in fault. It is proposed to sell by auction unclaimed luggage from a certain fashionable hotel. This luggage " consists of portmanteaus, despatch boxes, desks, dressing cases, railway rags, books, umbrellas, canes, a fifty-inch Keene bicycle, washing and mangling machines, two lawn mowers, thirty fowls, and miscellaneous effects." Miscellaneous, indeed ; is it possible the uniuveutoried effects can he more mis-' cellane us than those already described ? It really seems almost beyond the powers of human casualness to leave behind one hirty fowls, a fifty-inch bicycle, and a lot of mangling machines, not to mention the other and less remarkable effects, and for- got all about them. In the fine old hostel- ries of fiction, where - the landlords are always thirstiug for the blood and money of their guests, and the tops of beds co...

The Jubilee Exhibition. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

The Jubilee Exhibition. PEOPLE in these colonies are com» monly thought to be rather fond of such things as exhibitions, but judging from the newspaper reports of the dis. mission which ensued both in Parlia- ment and at public meetings upon the propesai to celebrate the jubilee anni, versary of the foundation of South Ans tralia by holding ad Exhibition in Adelaide, the project although eventually sanctioned ,by the Lê^îature doés hot . appear to have met with the most cordial of receptions. Apart from unexpected opposition which it met within certain com mercial quarters, eren inside the House a variety of reasons were urged against the hill which was brought in to euable Mr; I E. J. Smith and his colleagues to carry out their plan. The opposition seems to have chiefly arisen out of a belief that the local exhibition would interfere with the representation of South Aus- tralian in the Indian and Colonial Exhibition to be held in London next year; and secondly that the country part...

A New Joy. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

A New Joy. OHE of the favourite similes of writers of fiction when endeavouring to describe to their own satisfaction certain heights of . bliss attained by their heroes or heroines has been 'the opium eater's dream,'-an imperfect simile, by the way, as the sen- sations experienced are not of a uniformly pleasurable nature, but at one time the very reverse of delightul. In future, however, it is probable that the time honoured simile will be discarded, and delirious ecstasies of bliss will be com- pared to the sensation of hanging,-that is if the alleged experiences of a mau connected with the Pall Mall Gazette can be taken as reliable. It appears the experimentalist was a member of a kind .:. of "suicide club,''¿nd desiring to become acquainted with the sensation of banging, consented to he privately; and £arÜy*'?:-r. hung in the presence ¿f * iew parßoi^fc; : : friends. After the necessary prelimin- aries had been gone through such as fastening one end of the rope to the rafters o...

EMPLOYMENT OF CRIMINAL ABORIGINES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

EMPLOYMENT OP CRIMINAL ABORIGINES. TO THE EDITOR.   SIR,-How long will the Government continue in their unjustifiable habit of employing native murderers on the main land? Some two years ago I wrote up-   on this subject in the case of " Abra- ham," a native who was sentenced to Rottnest for daringly murdering his wife within the walls of the police station at Northam, and who afterwards, being employed on the main laud, at- tempted to take the life of the late Mr. Fraser, on or near the De Grey. Here, recently, another case, and another nar- row escape have occurred, the outcome of that injustice towards the setters which the Government seem so thorough- ly to inflict. Some two or three years ago one " Uglymug, " a native, shot another native dead while sleeping at night in his hut. This " Uglymug " was ap- prehended, tried, and sentenced to Rottnest prison, either for life or for a long term of years. But, as is usual with the authorities, they sent him o...
