THE CITY LIGHTED BY GAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 17 October 1882

THE CITY LIGHTED BY GAS. Great interest has been felt for some con siderable time in what is known as Dr. Silvester's gas, the secret of the manufac ture of which has been imparted bv him to a public company for a substantial con sideration. Those who saw the brilliancy of the light when the gas was first exhibited pronounced it to be in every way perfect ; but people were incredulous as to the power of making it in quantities sufficiently large to light up the city. Some people averred that it was so elastic that it would not travel, others said that cast iron or leaden pipes were unsuitable, and that the piping through which it would work would have to be made of vulcanised indiarubber ; while the least charitably-disposed insinuated that if the discovery was so valuable the doctor could have imparted his secret while in Melbourne for a more substantial con sideration. There were, however, some who pinned their faith to the doctor ; his secret was imparted to four persons under a ...

OUR PARIS LETTER. PARIS, August 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 17 October 1882

OUR PARIS LETTER. ? « ? PARIS, August 12. The Duclerc ministry is certain to endure till after the vacation, because the Cham ber of Deputies will not re-assemble till then. That body, so nearly elected, has devoured already two ministries, and its first task on resuming business will in all probability be to act similarly towards a third. The present cabinet consists of men personally very popular, but having no fixed programme, no political color, who are only viewed as a stop-gap, till events develop their successors. M. Duelere will never plunge his country into any war ; he was originally a printer's devil, and by self education and hard work became an editor, financier, administrator and senator. He aims to heal the mortal divisions, caus ed by envy, hatred, malice, and all un charitableness, in the ranks of the repub licans, and which is slowly but surely telling on the fortunes of the Republic. He is not the medicine man to effect that perfect cure ; nor is. it easy to disco...

The Daily News. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 17 October 1882

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1882. What is Oleomargarine? It is a com- modity by means of which artificial cream, cheese, and butter may be made ; it is an American notion, but so successfully has this spurious com- modity been worked up that of late years manufacturers on the Continent have followed the example set by their cousins, and Victoria is now threatened with an establishment for the manufacture of oleomargarine. From this substance butter and cheese are manufactured, and the spurious article bear so great a resem- blance to the real article that detection is all but impossible. The London Times has described the various processes by which these articles are manufactured; but it is so difficult to detect the fraud that consumers do not know whether they are paying for imitation butter or consuming the produce of the cow. In case of the " butter" it is said that it so resembles the real article " that the skill of the chemist must be in- voked to render detection possible if the ar...

The Daily News. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 19 October 1882

~thubsdTy, October 19, 1S82. For many years past hawkers and pedlars have not been allowed in this colony to ply their trade. The principal reason for this has been becanse it was found that a class ot hawkers went about selling their wares, but that they also carried on an illicit sale of liquors, to the detriment of employers of labor. The practice had gained so firm a hold on a portion of the community that it was found necessary to repeal the Act, in order to check the evil. It has now been deemed expedient to permit the exercise of this trade under certain restrictions, and the new Act will come into operation on the first of January next. ''The Act , itself is a stringent one; it .is intend ed to apply to a respectable class of dealers, and for that reason its provisions are so restrictive that an unscrupulous dealer would not care to avoid it. Any person selling or offering for sale goods carried about on the person, or any animal, or in any moveable conveyance, within any pa...

CABLE TELEGRAMS. (associated pbess teleqbamW/) LONDON, October 16. Cherif Pasba, President of the Egyptian Council of Ministers, has taken umbrage? a* the British for the steps nrhich the authors ties have taken in regard to the trial of Arabi, resenting the pressure which has been brought to bear upon him. Cherif is now inclined to re-transfer Arabi to the British, leaving the latter to deal with him as they think proper. It is suspected in political circles that some arrangement has been arrived at during the recess between Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Parnell. Reports are circulating to the effect that Mr. Parnell agrees to support the Premier's cldture resolutions in the course of the ensuing session, while, on the other hand, Mr. Gladstone is pre pared to adopt a scheme for granting to treland what practically amounts to Home Rule.
