The North Australian. FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 14. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 14 March 1884
f^he ¿jíarlh jjUsiralfatt. FBJDAY EVENING, MAECH li. To those who take any interest in the working of the Law Courts in Palmerston, it will at once be seen that Chinese occupy, on an average, three-fonrths of the Magistrates' time, and generally speaking with trumped-up cases of exceedingly limited importances The origin of these, or, at least, a very large per- centage of them, can, we think, be traced to no other source than the insatiable love for gambling which seems to find a prominent place in the composition of almost every Celestial. Day and night, with doors open and closed, the gambling hells of China Town are kept busily engaged, and the hard-earned wages of the simple enthusiast pass into the hands of the greedy banker, who, after the principle adopted by pro- fessional gamblers of our own colour, encourages his victims to attend nightly by the indncement- of a win now then, which, however, will bear no comparison with the takings of the banker himself. As with the Europ...
THINGS AND OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 14 March 1884
THINGS AND OTHERS. IN consequence of the upcountry mail not arriving here till 10 p.m. ïast night, a large portion of country correspond- ence has been omitted. It will be seen by our telegrams that our telegraphic correspondent in Adel- aide knew perfectly well what he was about when he wired the intelligence a few weeks ago that the Hon. J. L. Parsons had received the G.B.ship of the Territory.. Our special evidently knows the benefit of being first iu the field. CORPORAL MONTAGU, in his annual re- port on the licensed premises in the Territory, gave the Bench rather a hard knock iu connection with the Margaret Crossing Hotel. Such audacity as some people do possess ! Think as much as you like, Monty, but don't put it in black and white. The Bench took it to heart and censured the Corporal for his. plainspokenness. v.-: OUR minds are ill at ease as to the* fate of the gentlemen who went oiit a few days ago and discovered a coal mine. There were seven of them, and each one gracious...
COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 11. [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 14 March 1884
COUNTRY MINING AND GENERAL NEWS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. ) March ll. COMPLAINTS are made that there are numbers of Chinese now employed hawk- ing throughout the country, and they pay no license. This is rather hard on European, storekeepers who have to pay for their business sites, whereas the Chinese storekeepers (in consequence of the ridiculous and unjust instructions issued'by the late Government Resident Mr. E. W. Price, with regard to enforc- ing the payment of licenses by the Chinese, the which they appear tobe cognizant of) scout the idea of contribut- ing in any-way to the revenue. Doctor Woods has called my attention ; to the. question of water conservation, ' .which hq considers should be attended j to without delay. He says that he con Biders the quality of the surface waters which, are consumed during the dry sea- son as a rule are very detrimental to the preservation of the health of the com- munity. He suggests Government wells at all the camping places. This I t...

GENERAL MISCELLANY. [FROM OUR LATEST FILES.] [Newspaper Article] — North Australian — 14 March 1884
GENERAL MISCELLANY. [FIÍOSI OÜU LATEST FILES.] A gentleman at Warnambool in Victoria while bathing in a pool pf salt water on Middle Island, entered a cavernous aperture in the rock, and was immediately seized by the spreading arms of a large octopus, which fastened on both his legs. After a long struggle the horrified bather managed to wrench himself free, and lost no time iu escap- ing from the pool. There is some fun in going to a theatre or concert in Boston Mass. This is how they manage these things over there. Wherever a " star " is announced thc rush of tickets is tremendous, and all ordinary methods of obtaining them being utterly useless, the pian to pay a boy-say three dollars or so--to wait outside the box ollice all night in- order to purchase the much-coveted passes immediately the place opens in the morning. Before a Patti or a Bernhardt night some hundreds of the these GAMINS are to be seen employed in this strange manner. The great white jackass in Spain is, in degre...
