SUICIDE AT ANGLE VALE. Gawler. October 6. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
SUICIDE AT ANGLE VALE. Gawler, October 6. A sad case of suicide occurred at Angle Vale on Saturday morning at 8 o'clock, when Mary Billing, aged 23, was seen by her brother to throw herself down a well 34 ft. deep. Her dead body was recovered an hour afterwards, death being due to drowning. She was of rather weak intellect, and was upset by family troubles, her sister having died a short time ago, and her father and brother being seriously ill. The coroner (Mr. D. McMillan) investigated the case and declared an inquest unnecessary.

BALAKLAVA TRAGEDY. LYNCH FOUND GUILTY. SENTENCED TO DEATH. Tuesday, October 8. [Before his Honor Mr. Justice Boucaut and juries.l The Crown Solicitor (Mr. J. M. Stuart) prosecuted. George Horace Lynch (41) was charged that he did "feloniously, wilfully, and of his malice aforethought kill and murder Donald McPhee Ross at Balaklava on August 24, 1895." Defendant pleaded not guilty. Mr. Solomon appeared to defend. The Crown solicitor having opened the case, &nbsp; Emma Christina Diekmann, 12 years of age, said she remembered Saturday, August 24. Was watching some boys play marbles close to her father's house. Heard a shot fired, and ran to the bank of the river and saw Lynch running after Donald Ross. They were running up the north bank of the river, and were within four or five yards of each other. Ross was running away from Lynch, and as he ran the latter fired at Ross. Heard Ross sing out "Oh, oh," and saw him fall to the &nbsp; ground. He fell in her father's paddo...
THE BALAKLAVA TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
THE BALAKLAVA TRAGEDY. The trial of George Lynch for the murder of Donald Ross came to a conclusion at the Criminal Sittings on Wednesday with a verdict of guilty and a sentence of death. The case was only too plain from first to last. The condemned man is a bush laborer, and his victim was a "knockabout,", and they appear to have been acquainted for some years. They had been travelling companions in more than one colony, and Lynch according to his own story had stood to Ross in the re- lation of a perpetual benefactor. Between their ages there was great disparity, for while Lynch had passed his 40th year Ross had not reached his 20th. The de- ceased was shot at Balaklava on August 24. He had gone thither at his de- stroyer's instigation, and they had taken work together, or at least in the same dis- trict. Ill words passed between them, and a letter in the prisoner's handwriting may have served as much as any- thing to remove from the minds of the jury all possibility of any reason...

Coountry News (For other Country News see page 27.) THE SOUTH-EAST. Mount Gambier,, October 16.— Mr. John Ballard, a very old resident of this district, died to-day at the age of 89 years. He arrived here 46 years ago and for along time followed farming, being the first to introduce potatoes from Tasmania. He was an ardent cricketer and to the last took a great interest in all matches, acting as scorer. He had been in failing health for some time, but appeared better this morning.

THE HON. G. McGREGOR AND PASTORAL IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
THE HON. G. McGREGOR AND PAS TORAL IMPROVEMENTS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— My absence from Adelaide until late oo Monday evening is the reason that I have not replied to Mr. N. W. Stirling's letter pub lished in your issue of the 6th. Mr. Stirling refers to the following statement I made in the Legislative Council, viz.:— 'In a station in the north a well was sunk and the water was so bad that when old ewes drank it they onlv lived a short time. The man fihat rarm'o/i out that work spent £2,000 or £3,000 in maVimr additional improvements, though he knew the water was unfit to give his sheep and cattle, yet the Government had to pay for all' improvements— which included water on the run.' And Mr. Stirling asks four questions, to which I now reply. 1. ?'Whence was the information obtained?' I answer— I'rom two persons living on tho run at the time the work was done and subse quently. 2. 'To what station does he refer ?' Reply — The Myrtle Springs run, at the time owned by Mr. A. B. Murray, ...
CYANIDE WORKS FOR PETERSBURG. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
CYANIDE WORKS FOR PETERS- BURG. A deputation, comprising delegates from various parts of the north and north-east, waited on the Hon. P. P. Gillen (Commis- sioner of Crown Lands and Minister of Mines) at the Petersburg Town Hall on Friday week last, and requested that the Government would erect cyanide works at Petersburg. The depu- tation was introduced by Mr. L. O'Loughlin, M.P. (senior member for the district of Frome), who emphasised the suitability of Petersburg as a site for the proposed works. The secretary to the progress committee, Mr. R. W. Goudie, read letters of apology for non-attendance, all heartily sup- &nbsp; &nbsp; porting the proposal, from J. Melrose, Ulooloo ; J. Moody, Orroroo ; H. H. Taylor, Cockburn ; J. McCartno, Dawson ; J. Ey, Yongala; J. Davey, Wadnaminga ; J. Ling, Nackara ; and sympathisers at Wadnaminga and other north-eastern mineral fields. The memorial on the subject bore nearly 900 signatures, including those of persons re- siding i...
CANNIBALISM IN WEST AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
CANNIBALISM IN WEST AFRICA. News reached England on August 27 of an extraordinary case, of cannibalism in a British colony, as a result of which three men were hanged. The scene of the occurrence was Sierra Leone. The men belonged to a society called the 'Human Leopard Society.' Covered with leopard skins, they had been in the habit of secreting themselves in the bush near various villages. Anyone who ventured out was set upon and killed, and a cannibal feast was afterwards held. So serious had the matter become that the Sierra Leone Government sent men in pursuit of the murderers. Nine natives were arrested. On investigation six were liberated. The other three were brought down to Freetown for trial before a jury. Amongst these was a man named Jowe, who was for- merly a Sunday-school teacher at Sierra Leone, but who subsequently went to trade in tbe Im- peri country, which is under the Sierra Leone Government. Jowe, in his defence, declared that he had been compelled to join the so...
A DOCTOR FOR HAPPY VALLEY. TO THe EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
A DOCTOR FOR HAPPY VALLEY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Kindly allow me to contradict a state- ment made by the Commissioner of Public Works in answer to a question put by Mr. McPherson in the House. The Commissioner &nbsp; stated that the doctor who had always done the camp work was resident three or four miles away. The facts are that nearly three years ago the employés resolved to contribute 3d. in the pound from their wages towards the cost of having a resident doctor for the camp. Dr. Elliott was engaged and resided in a house about a quarter of a mile away from the camp and he was followed successively by Dr. Horneck and Dr. Proctor, who lived in the same house. The latter left four months ago. Dr. Hornick, who is attending the camp now, is living at Morphett Vale, one mile south-east of the post-office, making it seven miles from the camp. I think the jury at the inquest in connection with the recent fatality acted wisely when they added to their verdict a rider that it was n...
Correspondence. THE BITUMEN MYSTERY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
Correspondence. THE BITUMEN MYSTERY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Referring to the letter of Mr. Francis J. Spence in your issue of October 3 under the above heading, let me first say the words quoted are not my words but those of the South-Eastern Star. I simply said the sub- stance was not resin and that it had similar properties to amber, physical properties, understand, for in the same article the Star stated the fact that I had not analysed it. I could not say it was not a resin and at the same time say it was amber, for amber is a fossil resin. Mr. Spence does not seem aware of this latter fact. Let me add I have since found the substance re- ferred to melts at a point not under 53 per cent., rather above ozocerite. With regard to the long extract which forms the bulk of Mr. Spence's letter, which has nothing to do with the peg on which he hung it, I need not com- ment. — I am, &c., CHARLES BRUCE FLINT, Ph. C., Great Britain. Mount Gambier, October 6, 1895.
THE KAPUNDA SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 12 October 1895
THE KAPUNDA SHOW. The Kapunda aud Light Agricultural Society has at its disposal one of the prettiest show grounds in the north, and on a fine spring day, when the trees are a mass of green, a carpet of grass covers the ground, and the surrounding undulating country is under crop it is seen at his best. Such were the condi tions on Wednesday, when the annual show was field, mere is always a large attendance at the Kapunda show, aud this year was no exception to the general rule, ? as nearly £100 was taken at the gates. People nocked in from all parts -of the district, and the special trains were crowded with visitors. All the hotels were packed, and those who made a late application had great difficulty in obtain ing sleeping accommodation. The majority of people, however, drove to the scene in every conceivable kind of vehicle, and the town presented an unwontedly gay appearance. Naturally when a number of farmers col lect together at this time of the year the chief topic of conver...

METHODIST UNION AND METHODIST USAGE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
METHODIST UNION AND METHODIST USAGE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— 'W. H. Hanton' has asked me ' in fairness' to give my ' real name.' Ho claims to have been 'entirely misrepresented.1'. I caunot understand this. There is no reason in bis complaint. Tiiis correspondenco is due entirely to a gross misrepresentation on his part. The Governor's name has not 'fre- quently' appeared hi connection vrith ' balls. theatres, and Hudson entertainments, and when it has the patronage has always been official. Only once has patronage been granted to the* latter, and presence never. His infrequent attendance and lack of patronage to the theatre have been quite sufficient to cause expressions of regret from thos3 interested. As to 'balls,' had Mr. Hanton taken the trouble to enquire lie would have been informed that dancing is neither included in the desires nor accomplishments .of the official concerned. But he evidently dons uot 'presume' to enquire any more than he 'presumes' to answer ' ' anonymous corr...

SYDNEY WOOL SALES. Sydney, October 14. At the wool sales to-day 0,230 bales were offered and 4,326 sqld. The market for Buperior wools fully maintained its firmness, bnt medium and faulty kinds had unsatis factory sales, occasionally prices a farthing less than those of last week having to be accepted. Lambs' wool met with a strong demand. Sydney, October 16. At the wool sales to-day 6,064 bales were catalogued and 4,593 Bold. The tone of the market showed a slight improvement on yesterday, but faulty lots had again no show of good prices, and the Withdrawals of such lots were extensive. It is anticipated that next week the offerings will be very large.
PROTECTION AGAINST PHYLLOXERA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
PROTECTION AGAINST PHYLLOXERA. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— I notice that, at the instance of Mr. Hardy, a few gentlemen near Adelaide,^ who pose as the Vinegrowers' Association of South Australia, liave drafted a Bill to be brought before Parliament having for its object the taxing of all vineyards within the province so as to provide a fund for coping with the phylloxera pest. The msasure provides for a tax of (5d. per acre per annum on all vines of two years old, whilst the maximum of one shilling per acre is reached on vines of four years old. Judging from the manner in which these gentlemen approached the Premier, ask ing (ostensibly of course) for permission to tax themselves, it is evident they are anxious to steal a march on the growers pure and simple. A few years agp, acting on tho advice of some of the 'know-alls' in the wine trade, a number of capitalists, farmers, and others went in for vine-planting. As a result, the blind follow ing the Wind, the grower at all events has tumbl...
NEW SOUTH WALES POLITICS. Sydney, October 14. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
NEW SOUTH WALES POLITICS. Sydnev, Octolaer 14. The candidates nominated for the Phillip division to-day were:— Dr. Hodgson, free trader ; Mr. Henry Copelaud, protectionist ; Mr. James Wilson, labor candidate ; Mr. J. Hanrahan, protectionist ; -Mr. W. Dumbrell, independent. The candidature of 'the last two can hardly be rararded as sericw. The fight, therefore, resolves itself into a contest between Dr. Hodgson, Mr. Cope land, and Mr. Wilson. Of these Mr. Copeland is looked upon as having by far the best chance of success. The withdrawal of Sir Henry Parkes came as a great Burprisa To-night he addressed a letter to hie com mittee in which he stated that he was pre pared to stand on the great broad cause of federation, but he declined to be involved in a struggle on a petty provincial tariff. The fact of the matter seems to be that Sir Henry hoped to get the Protectionist support, and finding them pledged to Mr. Copeland he withdrew from an apparently hopeless conflict. To-day was the...
