THE BROADFORD MURDER. JONES ARRESTED AT KYNETON. HE GIVES HIMSELF UP. STOUTLY PROTESTS HIS INNOCENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
THE BROADFORD MURDER. JONES ARRESTED AT KYNETON. HE GIVES HIMSELF UP. STOUTLY PROTESTS HIS INNOCENCE. An "Argus" reporter states that Wil liam Robert Jones, the butcher who is charged on warrant with the murder of Rita Jones at Broadford on Boxing Day, was arrested at Kyneton on Tues day. At about 12 o'clock Sergeant Beck was returning from the township, and had just reached the gate of the police station, when he noticed a swagman enter the gate of the yard attached to the Court House, about 50 yards further down the street. As the man walked briskly along the path towards the rear of the Court House the sergeant crossed the yard of the police station and intercepted the stranger at the com municating gate. "Good day," said Sergeant Beck, scrutising the man as every police officer in the country has been scrutinising all strangers for the past five days. "Good day," answered the swagman, moving towards the ser geant. "Your name is Jones," observed Beck, satisfied that he had stumbl...
GOOD ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
GOOD ADVICE. "'When you have a pain in the stomach take Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarrhoea Remedy; it will soon ease the pain; I know it is good' was the advice my brother gave me one day when calling at my house, and found me suffering from acute pains in the stomach and continual diarrhoea," says Henry Lankester, a well-known merchant at Simon's Town.

KILLING A TIGER. ENGLISH SOLDIER'S ADVENTURE IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
KILLING A. TIGER. ENGLISH SOLDIER'S ADVENTURE IN INDIA. Although there are some good sports men amongst the rank and file of our soldiers in India, it rarely occurs that any big game falls to their guns, more especially is it so in the case of the Royal Bengal tiger. However there have been odd cases in which that ferocious cat has succumbed to the prowess of Tommy Atkins, and of the two that came under the notice of the writer during a prolonged stay in India, the following was the most remark: able, and it was considered by all who knew of it at the time, that the man had had a double escape from death from the animal itself, and from the gun with which he killed it. "Chummy" Marsden had been on a week's leave to visit an old comrade in another station, and was on his return to Dinapor. He was travelling by night, and was the only European in the train. The compartment being otherwise empty he had made himself as comfortable as possible, and was awakened from a good sleep by a re ...
COACHING ACCIDENT. SEVERAL PEOPLE INJURED. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
COACHING ACCLI)ENT. SEVERAL PEOPLE INJURED. The mail train which arrived in Laun cestoin yesterday morning was delayed some time en route in consequence of a serious mishap to the Swansea coach. It seems that the brake snapped short while descending a steep hill, and as a consequence the coach capsized. Some of the passengers were badly hurt, Mr. Hedley Salier having his leg broken. The mails were brought on to the station by a man on horseback, who only had time to give a bare outline of the mishap, when the train started. HOBART, Thursday. As the Swansea coach was journeying between Buckland and Campania yes terday with 20 passengers a capsize occurred. The vehicle, to which four horses were attached, was commencing to descend the very steep hill known in the locality as "Bust me Gall," when the brake gave way and the horses attained a furious pace. Before reach ing what is known as Culvert Turn the coach capsized, and injured several of the passengers. The' driver (Patrick Cusack...

Had the Boer confined his attention to tilling the soil, legitimately develop ing the mineral resources of his coun try and leaving his neighbours in Natal, Cape Colony, and other parts of South Africa alone, Great Britain would never have interfered with him. How ever, thanks to, the advice of the ava ricious Hollander and the meddlesome German, he left the straight track for the dangerous one of political intrigue, the result being the pres...

RAILWAY SERVICE DELAYED. MADAME MELBA HOTEL DE STROYED. CAMPS BURNED. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCES. ZEEHAN, Wednesday Night. To-day has been a trying one for many people on the Coast. The heat has been great, and added to this nu merous bush fires have raged around, and the wind increased to a perfect gale during the afternoon. Our Mount Read correspondent wired this morning that a heavy fire had commenced at Williamsford. The Ring Hercules camps were entirely de stroyed, and the hands from Hercules, Mount Read, and other mines were all told off, and waiting to try to ward off a repetition of what occurred two years ago. At the time of wiring, however, there appeared to be no im mediate danger. Heavy fires were burning in the vici nity of the Tasmanian Smelting Com pany's timber reserves, but willing hands and a slight change in the wind averted a great loss of firewood. About fifty tons were destroyed around the Oonah mine. Those con cerned passed a trying day, but no ma terial damage resu...

NOTES ON THE CABLES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
NOTES ON THE CABLES. (By "Rhodesian.") The late hour at which the last batch of cables came prevented my com- menting on the workmanlike manner in which the Canadians and Australians performed the task allotted to them. Nothing that could be said, however, could have had anything like the effect of Sir Alfred Milner's brief message of congratulation on the brilliant suc- cess of the Australians in their first real engagement. Other branches of the force had been in previous skirmishes and had been under fire, but Sunnyside was the first encounter where they had to meet the enemy posted in a position of their own choosing. The artillery work of the Canadians was very accurate, while the frontal attack, led by Lieutenant Colonel Percy Ricardo, of the Queens- landers, was delivered with telling effect. It is very gratify'ing to find that the first time our boys have met the enermy they have routed them. The victory was not gained without some loss, and two of the Queenslanders fell, wh...
WIRE FENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 5 January 1900
WIRE FENCES. An expert bushman makes the fol- lowing suggestion:---- "Our troops are going to the front equipped with a number of things which they do not want. This fact is established by the cable messages and letters which we have received from South Africa noti- fying that various articles supplied to our men have had to be left behind at the Cape or at De Aar. My suggestion is that each man of the Mounted Rifles now about to leave Victoria should have issued to him one of the wire clippers which are in use on almost every station in Victoria. From ac- counts of recent engagements, barbed wire fences enter largely into the Boer &nbsp; defence schemes, and if the Black Watch and the Gordons had had some such means as I suggest of dealing with such obstacles our generals might have had other tales to tell of recent engagements. Why not try the ex- &nbsp; periment, even to a limited extent ? These handy little articles weigh less than 1lb., and if one was issued to,...
