EXPLOSION OF GAS. IN A MELBOURNE HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 2 December 1905
EXPLOSION OF GAS. ! IN A MELBOURNE HOTEL. MELBOURNE, November 20. A fearful explosion of gas occurred at the Waverley Hotel, Collins Place, yesterday. Through a leakage from a chandelier the parlour at the rear of the bar had during the night become filled with gas. The licensee of the hotel, John McCraith, entered the room abont ten o'clock on Sunday morning with a lighted candle. In stantly there was a terrific roar and a blinding sheet of flame filled the room, burst away the door, and swept along the adjoining passages. The sound of shattered glass and falling plaster mingled with the screams of women and the rush of feet as the lodgers on the floors above left their rooms above and hurried terror-stricken to the ground floor. McCraith, whose clothes were fiercely blazing, staggered into the hall, all the hair being burnt from his face and head and his skin hang ing in loug strips, the blood slowly oozing from the flesh beneath.

REFRACTORY TURKEY. LONDON, November 26. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 2 December 1905
REFRACTORY TURKEY. LONDON, November 26. The Saltan of Turkey continues obdurate with regard to " the Powers' insistence upon the establishment of international financial control of Macedonia. It is semi-officially stated in Vienna that owing to the Porte's negative reply the solution henceforth apper tains to the warships. The Powers have previously learned that Bulgaria, Servia, and Greece will remain neutral and passive during the contemplated demonstration. The Porte's veiled threat of dis- ' orders and massacres in the event, of the Powers resorting to coercion has aroused great indignation in diplo matic circles. The Sultan of Turkey has placed an order with Germany involving the expenditure of two and a half millions sterling in recognition of the latter country's abstention from participation in the projected naval demonstration. November 28. It is stated that Tewfik Pasha, the Tarkish Foreign Minister, has in formed Baron de Calice, the Austrian ambassador at Constantinople,...

A HORRIBLE ACCIDENT.! . I AT FREMANTLE. PEBTH, November 30. J An accident of a shocking nature J happened on Tuesday morning at j Fremantle. James White, employed 1 by the constructing engineers of the Fremantle Tramways Board (Messrs. Noyes Bros.), with others was engaged in painting the poles carrying the electric power wires. He had one arm over the dead wire, and was covering a further portion of the iron bar canning the cables with paint.

A second later the current was cut off. Fisher pluckily remained with White, although he was almost pros...
GENERAL CABLES. HOME POLITICS. LONDON, November 25. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 2 December 1905
GENERAL CABLES. HOME POLITICS. LOXDON, November 25. A suggestion put forward by several newspapers that Mr. Balfour should resign at an early date has caused excitement in political circles. It is expected that the Liberal Government which will succeed the present ad ministration, after a brief session, will appeal to the country in 1906. The Times states that for the Liber als to refuse office after clamouring for years for Mr. Balfour's resignation would bring them into serious dis credit. Liberal newspapers strongly object to the Liberals assuming office at the present juncture. They declare that Mr. Balfour should dissolve Parlia ment and go to the country. The Daily News says the Govern ment dare not face the music of a general election, bnt hope to make the Liberals assume office and by subse quently dissolving become technically defendants before the country. November 26. The Daily Express states that the Cabinet has decided to dissolve Par liament early in 1906 without meeti...
THE RABBIT PEST. NATURAL ENEMIES. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 2 December 1905
THE BABBIT PEST. NATURAL ENEMIES. Mr. F. R. Moore writes from Estevert, Natal, South Africa, to the Editor of the Australian Pastoralists, Eeview as follows: SIR,-I trust as an outsider I ain I not presuming too much when pen ning the following ideas on your rabbit pest. The notions are mine, and if jou think them worth it pub lish for discussion. I Lave followed in your " REVIEW " the many ex pedients for stemming the rabbit in vasion, and after all said and done, they all appear to be temporary and palliative, more or less useful, neces sary now, no doubt, for immediate relief, but not such as will mean ultimate victory, radical and final. Your vigilance to-day must be con stant; your work the labour of Sisy phus, and a danger always latent aud ready to bui'st into activity. To me it seems the only hope and chance of eventually and successfully combating the evil is by enlisting the aid and forces of nature-I mean by intro ducing the most destructive natural enemies of the rabbit....

STATE POLITICS. PERTH, November 28. The Premier (Mr. Bason) denies the rumour which gained currency a short time ago that the Colonial Secretary (Mr. King8mill) -would shortly retire from the Cabinet. Mr. Bason also states that no changes in the Cabinet are to take place. November 29. Interviewed at Kalgoorlie yesterday with regard to political matters, the ex-leader of the Parliamentary Labour Party (Mr. Johnson) said the Govern ment policy outlined in the Governor's speech foreshadows what should be an uninteresting session if there were no members sitting in opposition. While there was nothing in the speech worthy of serious comment, there was a lot left out that required explanation. No doubt the members oE the Opposi tion would endeavour to get an ex planation before the Address-in-Reply was adopted. One of the principal pledges given to the State by the Premier in his policy speech was a measure to reform the Legislative Council. On this question Mr. Bason had stated the Gover...
