AN ILL-FATED SHOP. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 7 January 1888

AN ILL-FATED SHOP. The burglars have again made their pre sence known in a very marked manner, and as fate would have it, they chose the shop of Mr. J. Turner, 40 Queen street near Col lins street, which was three times similarly operated on last year. The last time the lock of the front.door was wrenched off, and many of the fancy bags, purses, etc., the well-stocked ,hop contained, were stolen, besides some money, but no trace was ever found of the robbers or the pro perty. The burglars went, to work in a different way this time. Finding the front too secure, they went up a lane leading to the back from Little Collins-street, jumped over the fence, and operated on the back door. There is abundant evidence of their expertness and of the quality of their tools. First they bored holes ;all around the lock, but apparently finding that too tiresome, cut out a panel of the door in a very neat manner. Ingress was thou easy, and the door was opened. A second door was forced, and the shop ...

UNPLEASANT EXPERIENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 7 January 1888

UNPEEASANT EXPERIENCES. -o Geelong visitors to the Lal Lal Races on Monday last had anything but a pleasant time of it. One well-known sporting celebrity had £30 stolen from his bag, an other individual lost £11 in a mysterious manner, a well-known footballer lost a gold locket presented to him by the Geelong public at the conclusion of the football season of I886, and a young lady had a narrow'; escape front death. While ithe lightening was extremely' vivid,' 'a flash passed closeto her, and rent her umbrella to ribbons. The holder experienced so great a shock that she went into hysterics, and it was some time before she recovered. Nearly everyone who visited the 'course came back drenched to the skin.

HOLIDAY RUFFIANISM. FRIGHTENING LARRIKINS WITH A REVOLVER. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 7 January 1888

HOLIDAY RUFFIANISM. FRIGHTENING LAIRRIKINS WITH A REVOLVElR. JTHE pirticulars of the outrageous scene which occurred at Mordialloc on Monday have not yet been made public, but it is as vell that they should be, and that it should be impressed on the police authorities that better , arrangements are required when 18,000 or 20,000 people, including a strong representation of Collingwood and Fitzroy larrikins, congregate at this favorite seaside resort. It is a wonder that on Monday no one was badly injured. As it was, Mr Shephard, the licensee of Bloxidge,s Hotel, had the bridge of his nose nearly broken; his wife was attacked in a most ruflianly manner; the place was rushed by an immense throng of ruffians, and it became necessary for one of the waiters to lire a shot from a revolver to intimidate the rascally crowd. Constable Glenny, who has charge of the local station, is a capital officer, who did good service at Russell street in years gone by;. but he was on Mon day only assiste...

AN EXTRAORDINARY OIUTRaGE AT MIALVERN. 0 AN INSANE GARDENER. : THERE Was much commotion at Huanting tower road, Malvern, on Tuesday evening, consequent upon the attempt; of William Wallace, forty-seven, an insane gardener, to kill Mrs. W. H, Fehon, with a garden spade. Wallace is a thick-set, poorly dressed man, who some-time ago was for eight months an inmate of a lunatic asylum. . He is said to be insane now. He has been employed on and off for a considerable period by Mrs. Fehon, who is the wife of Mr. Fehon, of Tattersall's Horse Bazaar, Exhibition street. It has been his practice to go to Hunting ower road periodically whenever there was any gardening to do, an d he went out on Tuesday afternoon, about half-past 4 o'clock taking with him the spade with which he usually worked. Soon after he had entered the premises he said to Mrs. Fehon, who is an elderly lady, " Will you come into the garden ? There is a plant I want to show you." Mrs. Fehon, thinking there was some rare plant...

JUSTICE TO ALL. SATURDAY, JAN. 7, 1888. DISORDERLY SCENES AT IMIORDIALLOC. T'HAT the larrikin element has not died out yet in Victoria, and does not intend to, was made painfully apparent on Monday last at tMordi alloc. When the rain calne down about 2 o'clock in the afternoon a scene ensued which beggars des cription, and is an everlasting slur on the authorities. Bands of Colling wood, or other larrikens held undis puted sway in the township for hours, and created a veritible reign of terror. The " few " police, who were present to keel, order, did all that men could be expected to do, but were utterly powerless to quell the disorder that was rampant. Sevoral unprovoked and brutal assaults were committed, the wonder being that some one was not killed. We understand that the Commissioner of Police is going to have a searching enquiry made, and if it be found necessary he will place a larger body of police there during next holiday's.-Necessary indeed I What does Mr. Clomley conside...

February, and 'the Limited Mail was speeding its way north., The passen gors had settled down to a long. ride, and made themselves as comfortable as cir cumstances permitted. Those within range of the light had pulled out :their evening papers and begun to peruse the rechauffe of the, morning's news, which they had already devoured. "Not much in the papers to-night," remarked Mr Barker to the company in general. He was a stout little gentleman, evidently communicative. A stranger here joined in the conver. sation. He w?is tall and spare : he looked the typical Yankee. " Have you the last edition 1" he asked. "If so you'll find as pretty a little story as you'llmpoet with in a month's reading."

ELSTERNWICK PARK. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 7 January 1888

ELSTERNCVICK PCARK. Sottx years since an application was made to the Lands 1)epartment for a lease of the Elsternwick Park for the purpose of forming a trotting course. The club was successful, and secured the lease, which has a currency of some years yet, and expires in 1891. It must be admitted that when the club secured the lease, the lands in tended for a park and recreation grounds were little better than a swamp, and might for a long titme have remained so. The club, how ever, has at considerable expense made many much needed imniprove ments in accordance with the provi sions of their lease. An attempt is now being made to secure a r:enowal of the lease for ten years. This is however stoutly resisted by the resi dents, who wish the land to be ap plied to the purpose for which it has been reserved. With regard to the real merits of the case, the Minister of Lands should have no difficulty whatever in coming to a decision. The facts are very simple. No one wants to prevent the c...

SOAKED. [Newspaper Article] — Oakleigh Leader and District Record — 7 January 1888

SOAKED. VERY deplorable was the predica ment in which holiday-seekers found themselves on Monday last at Brigh ton Beach. The morning, which epened fair and sultry, tempted out ists to go forth in search of pleasure, but thinly clad. Before the day closed, however, the phenomenal downpour which took place, found excursionists altogether unprepared. The result was that frantic efforts were made by thousands of drenched people to get back to town by rail. While the railway department " hur ried up" the trains as fast as possible, the strain on its resources was al together too great, the result being that thousands of persons eagerly sought for shelter only to be disap pointed. There was no help for it but to huddle together and simply get soaked to the skin without any chance whatever, of securing protec tion from the weather. Now, we consider that the shelter afforded the public at such apopular terminus as DBi hton Beac sAifit s aisgraoo fully inedequate. Let it be admitted that si...
