A vast crowd, ombrao. ing many memberls of Royal families in !Europe, assembled at the invitation of the great Khedi've Ismall upon thle banks of the O-nal, to grace the innuguration of this thin slier .line \c'hiOh severed tl)o Isthmus, and thus connected the hitherto parted seas of the East and West; Africa was ...

ATTEMPTED ROBBERY OF A CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 12 October 1887
ATTEMPTED R03BER OF A CHUROH, Sorm of the very daring burglars who are still at large in Melbourne made a deter mined effort to rob a safe at St. Francis's Ohurch on Monday morning, They gained an entrance to tlhe vestry tlhrough a small broken window some time after midnight, and worked energetically at the large iron safe until about sunrise, at which time the church is opened. The robbors apparently knowing this, were obliged to leave their work uninished,. They were evidontly well supplied withl burglars' imnplements, for tihe safe, which is an old one of Chubb's make could not altogether resist their attack, and the outer plato at the back was torn oil. After four hours' work, for tile lurglahrs stated thus much in a laconio inscription on thi side of the safe, written with the end of a sperm candle, they found themselves, to secure their own safety, oblliged to abandon the task, " No time, Four hours" was the record of their disappointment. The thieves were obliged to move the...

TIra Kiama park is, we approbond, an insti tution with which a large proportion of the inhabitants of Kiama have but slight familiarity; and probably a good many of them might question ach! otherl as to its whereabouts without thereby obtaining much information on the sulbject, Threec or four years ago the park-or its namn--obtained a temporan y notoriety in consequence of a disputo which arose brtwoon the' Borough Council and the trustees of the park as to the tenure bf it ; but since that timeo, we ap. preheand, it lhas not been a very comnmoti topic of conversation. On the merits of the dis. pito abovo .mentioned we have nothing to say; Iut the park itself is a matter on which a lbrief notice nmay be bestowed, if only to make known to some who do not already know, the actual existence andt'proballeo nat tractivoeiicss at no distant dateo of this no. glected iustitution.

A THIEF'S CAREER. II. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 12 October 1887
A THIEF'S OAREER, IL. Oun next step was to ascertain the hotel at which, he put up, which was a very siaiple mnatter. I need hardly observe that a great many people enter an hotel, and particularly a licensed one, who do not live in it. We certainly never had any difficulty in making our way in to any part of tile establishment. * We, of course, carried "screws" (skeleton ke ys), and if tihe traveller looked up his pro. perty in his bedroom we had seldomu much trouble in getting at it.. If, however, he carried it with him into the o.dining or coffee room it was a more dificult matter. We ihave nevertheless been asuccessful on more than end occasion in carrying off a case of jewellery out of a dining-room in which tihe traveller was at dinn'r,- but were always careful to leave a duidmy case of tihe same size.and appearance in its place, Woalso frequentedltha railway stations, and were occasionallyjsuccessful in picking up a ladies' .dressing bag or jewel case.

THE PROPOSED MEDITERRANEAN CANAL. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 15 October 1887
THE PROPOSED MEDITEMEANEAN CANAL. Ti, project of oonncoting the Meditorrancan and' the Bay of Biscay by means of a cannal traversing tlhe south of France has often boon under disoussion, Tleio oanal between the two soas would shorten by soveral dlays the distance betwi!n the English ports, tihe North Sun, and the oastorn basin of the Mediterranean, and the extri'enii East, The dues levied upon tlhe ships passing through the canal. would be amply oomponsanted for, by this oeonomy of tile and thl security gained by avoiding thl stormy coasts of Spain and Portugal during tho wintur ionlthls, Tlh most rational routo would be from Bordenux to Cotto by Agen, 1lontau* bnn, Toulouse, Onroassono, and l3xiersa, From Bordeaux th oannal would gonorally follow the oourse of thl Garonne, passing on its right bank l; It would tap the Lot, the Avoyron, and the Tarn, and uither draw its supplios direct fromi their waters, or through thi creation of vast reeorvoirs, After pas sinl Toulouse, it would ...

THE FIRE AT SHOOLBRED'S. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 15 October 1887
THE P1EE AT SHOOLDRED'S. Tue business of Messrs. Shoolbred & 0ol, at wlhose place an extensive fire was repo-til? in our Saturday's issue, is the most exten sive of tile kind carried on in Lodeon. What Messrs. Hordern and Soni, of the Haymarkect, are to Sydney, Shoolbred and Co. are to the west end of London. Their premises are situated in Tottenham Court. road, within a short distance of Oxford. street, and consist partly of stone and partly of brick, having been added to fromni time to time with the growth of the business. One portion of the building is three and the other two stories high, but the showrooums are immensely large, and are probably the finest in the world. Some idea of the trade done by the firm may be gathered from the fact that they turn over about a million and three.quarters in the year; and that for groceries alone, a department started by them about four years ago, they turn over a quarter of a million. They trade in every thing, from a needle to an an...
IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 15 October 1887
I R E] L A.N D, TH'i London correspondent of the "S. M. Herald," in his latest oommunioation, gives thle following account of the state of Ireland. "There are evidences that the highly sea. soned stories of the barbarities practised at Irish eviations, and the perfervid appeals put for h on behalf of a poverty-stricken peasantry, are buginning to pall upon the English elcotorates, and that a fueling of sceupticinsm is arising with r'egard to tihe genuineness of a good duel of the injustice under which the Irish people are said to groan. The olloial statistics concerning Irish balnks and Irish investments, .whichll hlave been published this week, have intensi fled this belief, for they show that, despite the fall in prices, the machinations of iack renting landlords, and oliher injustices under which we are asked to bIlieve that the Irish man labours, he somehow manages to pros. per in a manner which hIis loss fortunato English and Scotch brothers may well envy, These returns show th...

MARITIME ROUTES TO EASTERN SEAS. No. II THE MEDITERRANEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Reporter and Illawarra Journal — 15 October 1887
* MtAUITXME RO12'8 TO EABTBRN SEBAS, No. II. TIIE MEDLTERRNAN AN. . sm,-In thu event of a struggle between Franco and England, Italy could never re main neutral; her interests are identical with our own. It has been suggested by certain eminent nuthoritites "that England should lhandon the route through the Suez Oanal to India, that Malta should be given up, and the IMediterranean evacuated by the British forces, as we should be unable to protect the sea route to India during a war with Fiance." Should England pursue such a fatal polioy she would never again obtain an ally; Italy thus deserted would be left alone, with an immense extent of coast line exposed to an attack by France, as the Mediterranean without an English fleet would be reduced to a French lake. On the other hand, a cordial alliance be. tween England and Italy would absolutely paralyze the maritimeo power of France. Tihe route to India via the Suez Oanal would be assured, and by the patrol of gunboats throughout its ...
