[?] : BICTClCrOAD EACE. WA.RRNAMBOOL TO MELBOURNE. ? ? . -. ? Melbourne, October 6. Considerable interest was taken in the bicycle road race from Warrnambool to Mel bourne, which took place on Saturday, and which was paced by Scott and Martin of the Raleigh -depot. Twenty-two men started, and in order to give encouragement to all to jjersevere to the end, the event was made a handicap one. The com petitors had been divided into three classes, n.nrl a. nri7A \imri-.li £30 — n. liiirli trrnrfo T?.a.laio-li cycle— was offered for the winner of the handicap, while the first first-class man past the post received a marble clock value £15, the nrst second-class man a punch bowl value £12, and the first third-class man a tea and coffee service value £10.

THE DEAN CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
THE DEAN CASE. George Dean, tried and convicted of attempting to murder his wife, re-tried by Royal Commission and released on the ground that the circumstances of the case were as consistent with the theory of innocence as with that of guilb, has at last confessed. The later developments of this extraordinary case have proved a rapid succession of almost unparalleled sensations. 'Murder will out,' it is Baid, in defiance of the fact that the history of crime is fair of unsolved mysteries. But in this instance the saying receives one of those illustrations which account for its general acceptance. The secret that Meagher received from Dean in the condemned cell at Darling hurst could not be kept. Conduct more utterly base than. that of the man who, the repository of this knowledge, led a popular agitation to turn a criminal loose, and to surround him with the halo of a spurious martyrdom, could hardly be imagined. But, though he bad so much to lose by its discovery, Meaghor him self...

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1895. TUB RAILWAY COMMISSIONER'S REPORT. Oub railways have definitely ceased to pay. They have failed to pay their way during the last three years. This is a fact which cannot be paltered with ; ifc must be fully allowed for in all financial arrangements ; and it ought to be made to disappear as soon as possible. Th^ rise and fall of the railway revenue have been substantially coincident with the growth and decline of the Barrier trade. In 1887-8— the last year of the regime preceding the appointment of Com missioners — our railways paid no less than 4 'SO per cent, on their capital cost. In 1888-9 — the first year of management by Commissioners — the re turn was 4'05 per cent. During tho notf; three years th-*railways continued to pay,; and paid handsomely ; but during the last three years surpluses have given place to deficits. The net percentages earned in the past seven financial years are shown by the annexed table, the proportion of the total receipts con...

Rumors are current here that the Ivanhoe South Exteudeds have struck a fine lode. The Starlight leases are being worked well, and the lode thereon is being prospected and tested thoroughly.
