The Rebellion in Hawaii. Attempt to Seize the King. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
The Rebellion in Hawaii. Attempt to Seize the King. AUCKLAND, Tuesday.-The mail steamer Alameda brings news of an unsuccessful attempt at revolu- tion in Honolulu, which, though of short duration, resulted in six persons losing their lives and eight others receiving more or less serious injuries. The prime mover of the outbreak was Robert j Wilcox, a half-caste Hawaiian, who was educated ! as a Government pupil at a military college in Italy. He is between 30 and 35 years of age, and of commanding presence. He was instigated it is believed, by those hostile to the present regime. The name of Princess Lillinokalani is being freely uBed in this connection. Wilcox undertook to organise an insurgent force, and Tuesday, July 30, was fixed upon for the opening revolution. At 3 o'clock in the morning of that day the conspirators, to the number of 200, assembled at Palama Palace, the residence of Princess Lillino- kalani, where Wilcox has quarters, and, led by the latter, proceeded to the R...
Mission of the Irish Delegates. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Mission of the Irish Delegates. : IN reply to trie cablegram from London, stating I that the mission of the Irish delegates to Australia had proved a comparative failure, and that the funds collected wonld barely pay the expenses incurred by the delegates, the Freeman's Journal says:-"'Well, that's all right for fiction. Now for the facts. We have taken the trouble to make inquiries as to the amount actually subscribed up to the present in the colonies, and the following is guaranteed as correct:-Victoria, £9500 ; Queens- land, £6000 : New South Wales, £3050 ; South Australia, £500. The smallness of the amount opposite South Australia is accounted for in this way-that it represents only a couple of meetings, the full results ot Sir Thomas Esmonde's tour not having reached us. In New South Wales only three meetings have so far been held, and as 80 or 100 have been arranged for, our present total will I probably be more than doubled by the time the ! delegates have finished their work...

SKATING IS DECLINING IN POPULARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
SKATING 13 DECLINING IN POPULARITY. j OSE or two of the skating rinks in the city have, within the past few days, been either wholly or partly destroyed by fire. It is not likely that the one which has been wholly consumed will be re-built, for skating is declining in popularity. Some time ago I foretold that the mania would have a comparatively short existence. Last season it was all the rage, and rinks were in consequence built in all directions. One cause of their declin- ing popularity is probably the fact that some of them at least became, to use a well-known phrase, seed plots of immorality. Many girls have been ruined through going to skating rinks, ifs for the young men, they soon become tired of the novelty of running on wheeled-sandals for a couple of hours every night. Now is the time for some genius to invent another indoor amusement for the winter evenings. There is a fortune awaiting the I man who can do that. A short time ago the stock I in-trade of the Crystal Palace...

Second Day's Racing. LISMORE, THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Second Day's Racing. LISMORE, THURSDAY. THE racing was commuea io-uay, splendid weather pre- vailing, but the attendance is nguiu very poor. The protest lodged by Waddell against Patterson in the Trial Stakes has been dismissed. The racing to-day was very good, close finishes resulting in nearly every event. Mr. M'Carthy again won the open- ing event with the mare Bertha, who wou after u splendid finish with Letter. That grand colt Fernando wound up his racing career under Mr. Barnes' ownership by winning the Sires' Produce iii a canter from Digby Grand ; and his new owner-Mr. Taylor, of Queensland-will now take delivery of him. The Town Plate resulted in a great " boil over," as the winner was scarcely mentioned in the betting. Tridentine was a very strong favorite, and was supported at even money, but she left her backers in the mire, aud failed to secure even a place. Viper is full brother to Mr. John Cannon's Merlin, a horse that has a long list of good per- formances both over ...

Lismore Jockey Club Races. (FEOM OUB SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) LISMOBE, WEDNESDAY, LOVELY weather prevailed for the opening day of the Lis- more Jockey Club's annual races, but the attendance was not large. The course was in very fuir order, and hos greatly bene- fited hy the attention bestowed upon it. The racing was also good. Hypatia was a great "pot" for the opening event, beiug backed down to 5 to 4, hut the uucertaiu Blaithwaite won after a slashing finish. However backe« are still held in suspense, as immediately utter the race Waddell lodged a protest against Puttersou on the ground of au alleged cross. The favorite again went down iu thu Ladies' Mile, the short-priced Waverley, with his owner up, being defeated by an outsider in Barbella. Backers finally settled on Tridentine as favorite for the principal event of the meeting, aud influenced by Pittersen in thc saddle, the mare was heavily hacked down to 3 to 1. The Grafton mare was in great heart, and had the field in troubl...
Lawrence District Improvement Board. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Lawrence District Improvement Board. Is response to advertisements, about 120 residents of Law. renee district attended a meeting in the Company's goods shed on Wednesday, for the purpose of receiving, discuss, ing and ultimately adopting, with any desired amendment, the code of new bye-laws and rules for the working of the proposed Board. Messrs. Lowenthal, Shields and Philip (the Select Committee appointed at a former meeting for the purpose of drawing up the rules) had everything in readiness. Mr. Philip occupied the chair, having been appointed chairman PRO. TEM. at the former publie meet- ing, which was adjourned to this night : and Mr. Lowen- thal having in a similar manner been appointed secretary, acted in that capacity for the meeting. The report submitted by the Secretary having been read and discussed, it was adopted unanimously. After some discussion, it was decided that the residents whose names were not upon the Electoral Koli should be permitted to take part in the pr...
The Potts Point Murder. Execution of James Morrison. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
The Potts Point Murder. Execution of James Morrison. OüE "Political and Social" correspondent writes on Tuesday-:t The murderer Morrison was executed this morning at a few minutes after nine o'clock. The newspapers say that he died pénitent ; but seeing that he left no confession of any kind for the public information, I should like to know in what his penitence consisted. When he found that he was to he sent to the gallows, he began for the first time in his life to take a great interest in religion. He entered the Roman Catholic Church, and was duly confirmed and received the commu- nion. He evidently believed that a fortnight's attention to the teaching of his male and female spiritual advisers would atone for a life of wrong- doing, which finished np with a cowardly murder. There are thousands who are of the same opinion, but to me the belief seems to be a very absurd one. The demand for the evening papers containing the report of the execution seems to be very great. Re- gardin...
Glen Innes. AUGUST 21. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Glen Innes AUGUST 21. THE KAILWAY TO INVERELL.-Much satisfac tion is expressed at the action of our Member (Mr. Wright) re his efforts to obtain^ a line to Inverell. His motion, carried jn the Assembly, that the line from here to Inverell be submitted to the Commis- sioners without delay, leads to the belief that it will be the scheme adopted. With the immense increase in the traffic to Inverell and westwards since the line opened to Glen Innes, it would be indeed difficult to imagine how any other proposal could be for a moment entertained. BEET PLANTING.-The proprietor of the Examiner has distributed parcels of sugar beet to about 70 farmers, who intend planting same. It is -hoped that the experiment will lead to the estab- lishment of another staple product in our district. ACCIDENT.-Mr. Flanagan, a road contractor, while engaged the other day on the Grafton road, had one of his legs broken through slipping. It is only a few weeks since Mr. Flanagan sustained a fracture of the ot...

Gratton water Brigade. MINUTES of a meeting held on Tuesday. Present : Mr. G. H. Varley (President), Messrs. H. E. Wil- liams (vice-president), Captain W. G. Evans, Cox- swain H. B. Waterhouse, A.B's. J. J. Hill. J. Cramp. E. Ferguson, T. Dellow, H. Holt, J. Wright, E. Ring, and J. Gill (hon. sec.) Resolved, that the Brigade make application to the Government (through the Member for Grafton) for a grant of £25, to provide the crews with oil ?kin suits. Resolved, that the Secretary complete insurance on the two sheds, four boats and gear. The Secretary gave notice that he would move that the rules be amended to admit of members being enrolled without any fee. Two accounts were passed for payment-T. Dellow (repairs and cleaning to both sheds) £2 2s ; Rush, Cochrane and Co, goods, los. It was reported that the recent freshet had caused the end of the North Grafton shed to bulge in. and the Caretaker was authorised to have the necessary work performed. The four boats and gear were repor...
CANON LANGLEY AS A COMMERCIAL SPECULATOR [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
CANON LANGLEY AS A COIIMEBCIAL SPECULATOR HEBE I may say that if some of the Low Church clergymen in the Sydney diocese have contracted theological views, they are as capable as the best business men in regard to commercial speculations. This Canon LANGLEY told the Synod a day or two ago. that he had just bought a property in Pitt street for the use of the church. The property con- sists of the premises used as a Church of England book depot. They are situated alongside of a site that is going to be used for an arcade. The price agreed on for the property was £9000. The mem- bers of tbe Synod thought it was too much, and expressed the opinion that the Canon had not made a wise speculation, whereupon he informed them that if they did not care to take the property he would keep it himself. Yesterday he was offered £(>000 on his bargain, and I need hardly say that now the Synod are extremely willing to become its possessors. Canon Langley, I may say, was a bank manager before he bec...
Where am I? [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Where am I? THE St. Leonards correspondent of the Daily Telegraph writes :-About a week ago the wife of a well-known tradesman in St Leonards fell ill, and the doctor gave his opinion that she could not live through the next day. On the following morning at ten o'clock the doctor pronounced his patient dead, the nurse who was in attendance con- firming the opinion. T,he intimation nf death naturally created great distress among the friends of the woman, who was laid out in graveclothes and prepared foi* burial, and, being a BomalS Catholic, a crucifix was placed in her hand as she lay on the bier. "When it was announced that the woman was dying a priest was sent for, but he could not attend, as he was out of town at the time. About a quarter to ten the nurse entered the room without a light for the purpose of getting something which she knew where to find. "While in the darkened chamber she was startled to hear a slight cry proceeding from the bed where the body lay, and she rushed ...
TYPE-SETTING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
TYPE-SETTING MACHINES. I HEARD the other day that the proprietors of one of the morning papers here have despatched two experts to England for the purpose of procuring a number of type-setting machines to be used in their office. If this report is true, it will be bad news for the compositors. Type-setting machines are, I understand, used in some of the London I establishments, and I have been told that one of the daily papers in New York is entirely set up by those agencies. There will be a tremendous row when the new system is brought into operation here, so much aa that I may predict, without being I classed with prophet Varley, that the Unions may be expected to make supreme efforts to boycott the t paper. But in the long run the machines must I win the day.
PROPHECY OF THE MILLENNIUM. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
ÍEOPHECY OF THE MILLENNIÜM. TVE have another travelling Evangelist in Sydney. I allude to Mr.. VARLEY, whose name is pretty familiar to religions bodies in Australia. He began his mission on Saturday evening, and will continue it for a week or a fortnight according to circum- stances. Bot I do not think he will be largely patronised by the ungodly. Missions of that kind have become stale. What has caused them to degenerate may be the fact that the missionaries generally live like fighting cocks when engaged in their benevolent enterprises. What is neeaed to revive the public interest in these things is the visit of a few ascetic missionaries ; men who despise worldly luxuries with the exception of good apparel, and who are highly educated. Such men would fetch the sinners, and be the sensation of the day. Men of that stamp should be obtainable, and the churches should procure them. Mr. Varley, like some other evangelists who could be named, indul- ges in prophecy. Thus he declared o...
A Strange Story. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
A Strange Story. THE " Woman Cat "-La Femme.cltat-who has just escaped from the Salpetriere Hos- pital, forms a frequent topic of sensational talk and conjecture just now. It appears that recently a good-looking and apparently healthy girl of 15 was taken to the hos- pital by her friends. She was examined by Dr. Parinaud, and while he was looking at her eyes she suddenly went on all fours ; her features became distorted ; her eyes glared, and, imitating the mewing of a cat, she endeavoured to bite the persons standing near her. After having acted for several months in this manner the patient began to lick her hands, and then gradually returned to her senses. When under examination by Dr. Charcot the girl had another attack of her malady, which is called " galeanthropie hystérique," and she bit the eminent sur geon severely in the leg. Dr. Charcot had hopes of curing the patient, but she has suddenly disappeared from the Salpetriere, and is now wandering at large through Paris.
Bullfighting.—Revolting Scenes. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Bullfighting.-Revolting Scenes. TEE Paris correspondent of the London Standard writes on July 8:-A. revolting scene was enacted yesterday at a sham bull- fight given at Marseilles. Great expecta- tions had been raised by the arrival in that town of the Spanish bull-baiting company. The fight took place at the arena of the Prado, in the presence of 12,000 spectators. The principal attraction was the presence of Felipe Garcia, a swordsman of high repute. The bulls had been rendered vicious by a previous sham fight and answered badly the attacks of the toreros. One of the animals jumped 14 times over the second barrier. A cruel sight was then witnessed. The unfor- tunate bull was goaded on with a long trident, and was soon streaming with blood. He was tormented in this way for over half an hour, amidst indescribable tumult and hissing. At the end of the fight with the last bull the public clamoured for the animal to be killed ; but strict injunctions having been given to prevent it, th...
Shocking Allegations of Depravity. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner — 24 August 1889
Shocking Allegations of Depravity. ] A CASE of vagrancy, which presented some : very shocking features, was brought under ' the notice of the Prahran Bench. The accused was a girl 16 years of age, named Bridget Nash, who was charged by her father, James Nash, with having no visible means of support. The girl, it appears, left her home some months ago, and was found about six weeks back by her ïather living with a man named Barry, at Fitzroy. She was then in a delicate state of health. The father (says the Age) demanded that Barry should marry her, but he refused to do so, and a warrant was issued by her father for the arrest of the girl, as she refused to accompany him home. The, man Barry informed the magistrates that the girl was brought to his house on the night of the 5th January last by a man in the Government service, who asked him to allow her to stop with him for a fortnight, and promised to pay for her maintenance. On the following morning the girl stated that she only met ...
