THE STORY OF A SCAR. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
THE STOEY OF A SCAB. On the back of my right hand— j'5i about the . middle of it — ihere- is a' small' scar, half aa big as a threepenny piece, perhaps. You would nevsr notice it unless I showed it to you, and even then you would have to look sharp to boo it. But it's there, all the sa-me, and will bo until, the hand is roturnod to duet. It dates back forty years, that Bear dona. Going borne from school ono day another^ boy and I quarrelled and fought. Strange to say, it wasn't about a irirl either. Auvwrt. h« drew iris jack-knife and stabbed mo in the back of the right hand. Tho wound, I re member, was :;low to heal. Ifc was eoro and inflamed for months, and hardly a day but something liit it, or I knocked it against some thing, and Komade it worse. My whole avail able Sndy appeared to be concentrated in that Bore. You know how such things are. Thoy are like boils, and if there is any comfortable spot to have a boil there are loads of money waiting for tho fallow who discovers it. ...
LATEST PARTICULARS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
LATEST PAETICULARS. The ovidonca of the woman Eva Jansen lias furnished a clue to work upon. It transpires that she was able to identify not only the body, but a piece of art muslin found with the. body, which, she said, the man had been woaring a3 a neckorohief , ' and she also described hia olothing. It has been discovered that a man cashed a cheque at the Union Bank for J-70 odd, a year's pay, which he had received from a pastoralisb in the district. With these aids it is uipuu&eu toe inuraerer may be run down. It is proposed to drain the water from the dam, and it is expootod that the weapon used will be there found.

JUSTICE OF THE PEACE—A SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
JUSTICE OF THE PEACE— A SUGGESTION. 'Tbtje Blub 'writes: — 'In reference to the suggestion of the Sttndat Times that Justices of the Peace should pay for the title, I have a suggestion to make. It is that the people of the city, town, or district to be granted a certain number of new justices should meet together and elect the gentlemen to wear the distinc tion. The townspeople should also pay the amount fixed by the State for the rignt to the magic letters 'J.P.,' and thus have it entirely in their own gift. Even at iJ10 a piece the State would rake in a fair sum. Of course the number of Justices could be limited in order to make the honor more to be: coveted. It should, however, be a matter of election, and the people should subscribe the amount re quired. Thus could real honor be done to worthy citizens.'
SIR HENRY IS VERY ANGRY, And Rough on Mr. Reid. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
SIR HfiNfiT IS VERY ABGRY, And Rough on Mr; Reid. News reporter : ' One word more about the doings at Hobart, Sir Henry: ? ' Sir Henry Parkea : ' They are not worth thinking of j the'y are like the annoying hum of a mosquito — nothing more. In a month's time it will be forgotten that any such body (the Premiers' Conference) ever met. Certainly no Australian Parliament would ever ratify what they propose to do.' ' Your opinion, in short, then is — ' ' That the Federal Council, though un fortunately constructed, is a tangible reality, while the Conference of Premiers is mere vapor — and very foul vapor at that.' ? * . Having vouchsafed this much, Sir Henry rose, and as th9 writer took his leave, the veteran added, with some em phasis : ' If there were four honest, capable men in all Australia, Australia could be fede rated in a year — men in power, I mean. But it is not likely to be federated by a gentleman like Mr. Reid, who has strained to the utmost of. his poor capacity to frustra...

THE POPULATION RETURNS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
. THE POPULATION RETUUNS. According to the population estimates for 1894, prepared by Mr. Coghlan) the colony cannot boast of any large accession to its numbers during the past year. The natural increase of 23,708, consisting of the excess of births over deaths is, however, about up to the average of the past ten years, and that caused by the difference between arrivals and departures, amounting to 4372, ia at all evenfcB nearly four times greater than that of the previous year, although much less than during any other year of the decade. As compared with the years 1890 and 1891, when the increases from the same source amounted re spectively to 15,298 and 20,268 there is a great falling off. These, however, embraced the period of the financial collapse in Vic toria, when so many of the citizens of that colony who had experienced reverses of fortune transferred themselves to the mother colony. When it is considered that this great influx has to be provided for, and that even since th...
THE CONVEYANCE OF CORPSES. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
?THE CONVEYANCE OF. CORPSES. Theeb is one Bcale of charges upon the railways which seems peculiarly hard and oppressive, falling as it does upon persons suffering from bereavement ond mis fortune. We refer to the high scale charged for the conveyance of corpse^. It seems that the, , regulation rate is Is per mile, and an instance has recently been made public in which p. dead body was conveyed from Sydney to Mudgee, when tho charge amounted to the exor bitant cum of £9 14s. ThiB certainly has the appearance of taking advantage- of human distress and calamity to fleece the survivors tor the purpose of raking in revenue, as there can be no good reason why such a heavy rato should be im posed. Everyone i3 aware of tho senti ment which makes the friends of de ceased relatives desirous of interring their remains along with those of .. previously deceased members of tho family, raid where death takes place at o cliat&nco from homo and Mndred it io only right that such a sentiment ...
SEAMEN'S WRONGS. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
SEAMEN'S WRONGS. Uotee tho heading of ' How Seamen Pis appear,' a diagram has been issued from the offices of the Federated Seamen'B Union of Australasia showing the average loss of life amongst factory and workshops' operatives, railway servants, miners, and seamen,, and founded' on statistics con tained in the report on the work of the Labor Department of the Board of Trade, 189S-3. Tho diagram shows, in a very Btnking manner, the dispro portionate loss smongst seamen as com pared with the other classes, tho per centages being for faotory and workshop operatives 0.0076 per cent., railway servants 0.12 per cent., miners 0.14 pei cent, and seamen 1.15, the last-named being four times as much as all the other olasses together. About one-sixth of this total is set down as probably due to causes not easily preventable, and the remaining five sixths is attributed, to such preventible causes as under-manning, incompetent sea men, insufficient stability, want of proper shifting boardB, ov...
THE COST OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Times — 3 February 1895
THE COST OF JUSTICE. Accoeding to a' statement made to us, there would seem to be some need of reform in connection with prosecutions authorisedby judges, so that the course of justice should not be impeded by the inability of private persons to bear initiatory expenses con nected with the proper conduct of such cases. In a recent matter the judge, after perusing certain affidavits, granted autho rity to proceed against a person for perjury ; but as the information had to be based upon the judge'B notes, a cer tified copy was required from the asso ciate. It might have been thought that it would have formed part of this person's duty to furnish documents required for the purposes of public justice, but the official in question, it appears, took a different view of the matter, and at first demanded £4 10s and afterwards .£3 10s for supplying the papers in question, and which amount, he admitted, would be retained by him aB private perquisites. Of course, this may bo strictly legitima...

DAEKEST BEDFEEN. ' !? ' ? ? ? Indians and Syrians Dissatisfied WITH OUR DESCRIPTION OF THEIR COLONY. . The Turkish Consul Roused. THE TRUTH ABOUT^THE SYRIANS. (TO THE EDITOE OF TUB ' SUNDAY TlilES.') Sir, — It -ia a groat miotake, and a no less groat injuotice towarda my countrymen, to look upon them as idlers and people without morale. They are, on the contrary, honest and hardworking men. Concerning those merohants whom a misguided reporter desoribes as strangers to civilisation, it will suffice to mention that they are well educated, speak several European languages, and have almost all of them gone through the Fronoh colleges in Syria, whioh are under the direotion of the Rev. Fathers Laztirists at Antoura, and Rov. Fathers Jesuits at Beyrouth. I would surely not have gone to the trouble of refuting the groundless arguments of a re porter at a loss wherewith to fill tho columns of his paper were it not that tho informations he has given have been supplied by an excountry man of ...
