The Birthday Club's Races. A REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 24 May 1901

The Birthday Club's Races. A REVIEW. (By Wellesly;) Given iine weather the anniversary meeting of the above Club to be helu to day (Friday) should be well attended, and irom a racing point of view there should be little to ca?il at. At no previous meeting held under the auspices of the I Club has such eicellent entries been re ceived than the orfe under review, and quality will also be represented. The iargc entry is no douH attributable to the handsome psrite subscribed for by the licensed victuallers of the town, and to the low entry charged to nominate. The handicapping for this meeting was left in the hands of Mr Geo. M-»recroft, and it cannot be said that it has given satisfac tion. A handicapper's lot, like a police man's, :s ttot a happy one, and of course several blots have been picked out by local sports. Whether imaginary or other wise remains to be seen, but I did nut think there xrer€ so many Francis Dakin's :n Deniliquin. But its a fact, and when it is remembered that t...

Kanaka Labour Question. A QUEENSLAND MEMBER'S VIEWS. Mr A. Fisher, member for Wide Bay (Queensland) in the House of Representa- tives, was interviewed on Friday regarding the kanaka labour difficulty, which will shortly occupy the attention of the Com- monwealth Parliament. In the course ot his remarks, he said :—   "I represent a district which produces   half the sugar grown in Queensland. The principal matter of interest in my electoral campaign was the question of a 'white   Australia' and the termination within a reasonable period of the employment of kanakas in the sugarfields. Labourers from the Pacific islands have been em-   ployed in the cane-fields for the last 30 or 35 years, but it was not till 1880 that the Queensland Government issued licenses to vessels to visit the South Sea islands to 'recruit' or obtain labourers for the sugar     plantations. Owing to certain abuses Sir Samuel Griffith ...

Horrible Domestic Tragedy. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 31 May 1901

Horrible Domestic Tragedy. One of the most awful domestic tragedies that has ever happened in Victoria oc curred at Coleraine on Friday night, when Mrs Day, wife of Mr James Day, the manager of the Coleraine Butter Factory, administered to all her five children some powerful poison, from the effects of which four of them unluckily died, and then Committed suicide by drowning herself in a galvanised iron water tank in the yard of the house. Mrs Day was well-known in Coleraine as a good wife and mother, and was much respected., No reason can be suggested tor her terrible act, but it is surmised that' it was committed in a fit of temporary in sanity, for it is known that the unfortu nate woman has been sickly, and out of health since her last child was born. In addition to this, her husband has lately been, and still is, absent from home at tending the Butter Managers' Conference, and other business. It has been noticed that lately Mis Day has fretted a good deal. There was, however, n...
