AN ELECTRIC SPECTRE [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 11 July 1876

AN ELECTEIC SPECTRE. It seems that M3'Clellan Gclch .as just been thrown into a state of unc. countable excitement by the appoaranze there of an electric spectre, demon cr spirit, which has driver the camp fromw its propriety. The circums:anuces attending this remarkable episode are as follows : Some months ago John Hewitt, a miner, sharing the cabin of William Barton, died leaving his partner, to whom he was tenderly attached in great distress. They had come to Montana together, and bad never been separated for even a day; had endureJ privation and had mutually shared the perils arid dangers of the mines. But early it, the autumn Hewitt sickened and died, and his old partner had secluded himself more and more ever since. The other night, however, the wbule camp was aroused by a succession of piercing shrieks in his only cabin. RI.hsiug pell-mell into the house, Burton was discovered on his knees facing the single glass window in his cabin, his eyeballs nearly protruding from his he...

The Guardian, WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE "PORTLAND EXPRESS." To Protect our Rights—Not to Infringe upon those of Others. TUESDAY, JULY 11. PORTLAND GAS WORKS [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 11 July 1876

WITH WIIICh IS INCORPORATED TIIE "PORTLAXD EXPRESS." To Protect our Rights - Not to Iufringe , upon those of Others. TUESDAY, JULY 11. PORTLAND GAS WORKS. IN his published reply to a recent requisition, Mr. SCOTT enumeratos several considerations of importance as likely to occupy the attention of the Borough Council during the coming year, and one of these is the supply of gas to the town. Portland, as we have before stated, has reached a stage in her history when some further out lay on public works may fairly be looked for outside the town's general revenue; and if the place is to prosper and prepare for the busier future that has so long been promised it, it is absolutely necessary that the most liberal and spirited public men should be induced to enter the Council and work towards moving us a little faster out of our primitive condition. Several private enterprises have been lately successfully launched, and in business matters generally a marked improve ment is visible in the t...

THE RAILWAY AND TOWN RESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 11 July 1876

THE. RAILWAY AND TOWN RESERVES. If the line of railway from the terminus at Percy-street to tile jetty is to be constructed at once, the Borough Council should take prompt steps to conserve the interests of the town as regards the cutting that must be made crossing Percy and Bentinok. streets, and which of necessity must be carried through the esplanade fronting the sea, and terminating nearly opposite Mr Must's store in Bentinek-street. The permanent way at the bottom of the cutting, we learn, is to be 30 feet in width, and the entire width from bank to bank is to be 75 feet. The banks of the cutting, carried down to the permanent way, will be at an incline of 45 degrees, or one in one. There will of course be bridges over Percy and Bentinck.streets to save the expense of gates, gatokeepers, and a level crossing ; and possibly the pro. posed declination in the banks leading to the permanent way is the best plan to preserve the beauty of our town that under the circumstances could b...

GOOD ADVICE [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 11 July 1876

GOOD ADVICE. Keep clear of the man wbo does not value his own character. Nothing is more like an honest man than a thorough rogue. In any business never wade into water where you cannot see the bottom. Do not choose your friend by his looks - handsome shoes often pinch the feet. Put no dependence upon the label of a bag, and count money after yo'ur own kind. Don't go to law, unless you have nothing to lose : lawyers are built on fool's head. Don't believe the man who talks the most- for mewing cats are seldom good mousers. See the sack open before you buy what is in it; for he who trades in the dark asks to be cheated. Do not be fond of Compliments ; remember "Thank you pussey, and thank you pussey." kill the cat. By no means put yourself in another person's power. If you put your thumb between two grinders they are apt to bite. Drink nothing without seeing it, sign nothing without reading it, and make sure that it means no more than it says.

MELBOURNE. Tuesday, July 7. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 11 July 1876

MELBOURNE. (FROM OUR OWN CORREfSPONDENT.) Tuesday, July 7. As the period of the Assembly of Parlia ment approaches rumors of important changes are becoming current to which it is not well to lend too eager an ear. Amongst these is the statement that Mr. Kerferd hankers after the County Court judgeship, which will be vacated by Juilge Pohlman on his retirement, and if this were true it would show considerable prudence on Mr. Kerfcrd's part; but unfortunately it is not yet at all clear that an attorney-general would have the option of refusing the office even if he coveted it. Of course it is difficult to say what vacancies will be filled up when the hoor of Ministerial trial arrives, but until Judgo Pohlman (at present on leave of absence) resigns, speculation as to his suc cessor is somewhat premature. At present the old judge, though somewhat worried by recent domestic trials, is still lishle and cheer ful looking, and it is not expedient to specu late upon his early retirement unt...

PRICES ON THE BORDER [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 11 July 1876

PRICES ON THE BORDER (FROM THE BORDER POST, JULY 1.) A childish argument has recently been ad- vanced by the protectionist journals of Melbourne, for the purpose, we presume, of bolstering the decaying and pernicious system of fiscal policy which still finds favour amongst a certain benighted class in Victoria. Our contemporaries unblushingly stated as a fact that in Wodonga, which belongs to pro- tective Victoria, the common necessaries of life can be sold cheaper than in Albury, which forms part of the free trade colony of New South Wales. The statement was so manifestly absurd - it carried its refutation on its surface - that we did not deem it necessary to contradict it. However lest our silence might be construed by the unthinking into acquiescence, we emphatically assert that nothing could be wide of the fact. Cer- tainly sugar of all descriptions can be sold cheaper at Wodonga than at Albury. The reason is obvious. The duty on sugar in Victoria is 3s per cwt. ; in New South W...

A NAVAL DEMONSTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 14 July 1876

A NAVAL DEMONS'TRATION. The German squadron has been ordered to Salonica and Constantinople. It comprises nearly the whole German navy. The object is, of course, moral rather than warlike. It is thought that the leading member of the triple alliance ought to make in the Medi terranean a demonstration of naval strength corresponding with her political position, About the unity of action on the part of the great powers no doubt exists, but profound anxiety is caused by tile noers from Turkey. A private letter from Constantinople im plores the powers to send ironclads thither, as the passions of the MDahomedans are hourly rising. It was rumored that the foreign ambassadors had demanded the execution of Dervish Plasha for distributing arms among the populace, and for inciting them to the massacre of the Christians.
