SOUTHERN NEWS. A COW IN A DRAPERY SHOP. PERTH, November 20.] [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 25 November 1905
SOUTHERN NEWS. A GO W IN A DRAPERY SHOP. PEETH, November 20. ] Considerable consternation was caused in Hay-street on Friday after noon, when an infuriated cow ran amok. It appears that the animal, which was a yoang and well-bred shorthorn springer, was purchased by Thomas Dunn, a resident of West Perth, and brought to the city by train. When released from the truck the noise made by a passing train frightened the animal, which broke away and wandered into Hay-street. She walked quietly into the carpet department of the Economic Stores. The attendants were naturally aston ished to see such an unexpected visitor, but no steps were taken to impede the animal's progress. Pursuing the even tenor of its way, the cow walked through the show room, at the end of which there is a large mirror. Coming snddenly in front of this and observ ing her reflection, the animal snorted, tnrned sharply to the right, and dashed through the haberdashery department ont into the street.

NEW ZEALAND. WELLINGTON, November 22. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 25 November 1905
NEW ZEALAND. WELLINGTON, November 22. j Lionel leny was charged at the Supreme Court yesterday with having murdered a Chinaman in Wellington in September last. Teriy, who was not represented by counsel, when asked how he pleaded, merely said his action was right and justifiable. En the course of a long address to the jury, Terry expressed strong objection to the King being placed in the position of protector of an unnaturalised race of aliens in the British possessions. When the life of the country was at stake drastic measures such as he had taken were imperatively necessary. He said he would never recognise a law which sought to protect people of an alien race in British countries. In taking the life of the Chinaman he challenged the alleged law to prove its existence. He demanded the full penalty of the law. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, and Terry was sentenced to death.

The &att\i£tn JltHus. PASTORAL, MINIKG AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1905. THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. THE first session of the sixth Parliament was opened on Thursday. The Governor's speech, which ire publish in another column, is interesting reading, and gives promise of stable government for some time to come. Unlike many vice-regal speeches which have preceded it, there is little mention of public works of a non productive nature, such as public buildings for the metropolitan area, and the general public will welcome this feature. In the past too much attention has been given to the erection of palatial buildings in Perth, and the money thus spent could have been far better utilised in building railways, opening up stock routes, water , conserva tion, and otherwise assisting in the de velopment of our primary industries. The building trade in the metropolis is or should be a side issuej if the country as a whole is prosperous-and it can only be made so through...
