The Mayor's Plate. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
The Mayor's Piate. [By Vulcan.] A goodly number of persons rolled up to see tho aboyo contest, but (as was known a day previously) tho ruco did not come oil', much to tho disgust of those who put in an appeai'ance. It was frooly rumorod that Alcohol was girth uAUj-ea ana oougat over oy a lew ot tne 'books.' That rumor was only too true. Slip was favorite, but lacked heart, and did not show on tho courso proper, but hugged tho railings outsido. All I can say say about this mysterious nag is that h6 is a bitter pill to swallow, and will provo an unprofitable investment to his present supporters. Flushed with his success in tho Municipal Stakes, Devil's Own was much admired by his old and truo supporters. A rumor had got about that this 'hoss' intended to run 'cronk' and cut out tho running for Slip ; but 'Vulcan' places no crodonco in that rumor and feels assured that 'Devil's Own' will run straight and do his duty to his o.d supporters and frionds.

The Wages of Murder. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
The Wages of Murder Tjik Parisian police department has just issued and instructive and possibly an effective docu ment (says tho London '*? Daily Telegraph'), showing from actual facts that, apart from the fear of punishment, crime does not pay. The police take for the text tho late Parisian murder, that by the man Carrara and hia wife, who killed tho collector of a bank hore and took his money to pay off their debts. The collector had in his possession £880, a-nd. his assassins buried all but £28 of this in their cellar. The £28 they spent in such a lavish manner as to attract the attention of their neighbours, and suspicion was directed towards them. They were arrested, confessed, surrendered £852, and will probably be guillotined. Tho police enumerate 21 murders done by 27 'artistes,' as the '.-assassins', were humourously termed, and the average, profit to each assassin for his share in. the crime was £3 03 6d. It iB interesting to : read. of rtho very, small returns the more o...
An Unusual Spectacle. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
An Unusual Spectacle. The unusual spectacle of a funeral coming to a standstill in front of a public-house was wit nessed in Swanston-street yesterday afternoon (says Tuesday's Melbourne Akgus). People who stood about in the immediate vicinity wondered whether or not the landlord was dead, or wueuiur iiiu ueai.se-uj.ivBr waa inirscy, or cne chief mourners were concerned about the heat, and desired to slake their thirst before proceed ing further on their mournful journey. All speculations were, fortunately, wrong. The cortege had come to a standstill merely that the chief mourners might read the cricket scores posted on the publican's window.

The Partition of China. Ix an interview with tho representative of the 'Berliner NuUBe Nachrichten' the Japanese Minister in London is stated to h;\ve said that tho occupation of Kiaochou and Port Arthur so far gave not tho slightest cause for apprehen sion. Ho did not. believe that wo stood on tho ove of partition of the Chinese Empire. Ques tioned aa to whether .Japan at the present juncture would evr.ctuateWei-hai-wei if China paid the war indemnity, the Minister said : 'Why not? The question is only financial. The forts [jf Wei-hai-wei are in their present state almost of no valuo to any Power. As fur as I know ilure is at present only one wano' war and a brigade of Japanese troops on the spot. The chief, thing in my view in judging the situation is that Germany has no political interest whatever in Eastern Asia, but solely a commer cial interest, Japan as well as England has a great trado in China, but neither has much to fear from the competition of Germany or Russia.

How to Help the Local Paper [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
How to Help the Local Paper You can aid your newspaper greatly by giving the local office your general printing ; if you do not feel able to run an advertisement, surely you can afford to give tho newspaper your cards, dodgers, billheads, envelopes, and all business printing to execute The newspaper man needa it, and it helps him to, pay his printer for sotting up the thousand and one freo notices ho gives you and your town ; but don't give it to the travelling canvasser who can give you no such teturn, and is spending neither time, money, nor brains in helping you to build up your district. The timo may come when a newspaper may live simply upon tho revenue derived from subscriptions and advertisements, but no ordinary newspaper in any ordinary town can exist without auxiliary support derived from general printing. Therefore, if you want a good newspaper — one that wll still help your town and district — give all your printing to tho C.R. Advocate, the only paper published in tho C...
A Game of Cards. For £200,000. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 15 February 1898
A Game of Cards. For -£200,000. The following interesting story relating to the history of the Broken Hill Proprietory Com pany is morth republishing : — A game of euchre for one-fourteenth of the mine was played, and although a full share did not represent the stake, the then value of that share depen ded on the result of the game — depended in deed, on one man holding more trumps than his opponent. The scene occurred at Mount Gipps about 15 years ago, when Mr. McOulloch (the manager) and Mr. Cox (an employee on the station) played to decide whether the latter should give the former £150 or L120 for a fourteenth sharo in the Broken Hill mines, which wero juat being pros pected. Mr. Cox won, and Ins since had reason to blesa the man who, to please the royal maeter, tho mad King of France' invented a pack of cards. Monte Carlo has been tho acene of many a huge gambling transaction, but it is doubtful if ever the result of a single game equalled the present value (over L200.000) of th...
