He -was struck : in the face and thrown to the ground, kicked about the body, and the snm of Ids. stolen from him. As soon as he recovered consciousness he proceeded to the police station and reported the occurrence. His appearance clearly indicated he had been the subject of severe illtreatment. One eye was swollen and discoloured; on the left jaw was a large lump ; and the inside of his mouth was severely cut. Blood flowed profnsely from the wounds. The unfortunate man's clothes also bore marks of the fray. Adams was conveyed to the hospital and admitted for treatment.

The Northern Times. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1906. THE RABBIT PEST. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 6 January 1906
The Itortlj^nt ®ntwa. PASTORAL, MINING AND PEARLING NEWS. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 190G. THE EABBIT PEST. THE danger which threatens our pastoral and agricultural industries through the advent of the rabbit is a most serious one. Probably here as elsewhere it "will be found that the farmers will not suffer to such an extent as the pastoralisis, owing to the fact that the close settlement which is a feature of agriculture tends to keep within reasonable limits the animals which have wrought such immense damage to pastoral properties in the Eastern States. But the tracts of country used for sheep breeding, and especially those portions in the immediate vicinity of Northern rivers, are only too suitable as a home for the unwelcome intruders and once they obtain a footing here, depreci ation in the value of pastoral pro perties will certainly follow. Past Governments have shown themselves not unmindful of the gravity of the situation, and though somewhat belated, the erection of the rabbit ...

A KALGOORLIE BONIFACE POISONED. PERTH, January 4. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 6 January 1906
A KALGOORLIE BONIFACE POISONED. PERTH, January 4. Something approaching a sensation was caused at Kaigoorlie yesterday when it became known that Harry Rosenthal, proprietor of the Criterion Hotel, had died as a consequence of having taken a dose of poison in mistake for medicine. The night porter, wfio gave the wrong bottle to Rosenthal by mistake, is now in a state bordering on distraction. The funeral of Mrs. Rosenthal took place only on Tuesday. The death of his wife was a great blow to Rosenthal, and this conpled with his weak state as the result of a recent operation, largely contributed to his untimely death.
CARNARVON SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 6 January 1906
CARNARVON SPORTS. The anuual sports meeting took place 011 the Carnarvon Recreation Ground 011 Monday last (New Year's Day). The attendance was ex tremely satisfactory, and those pre sent witnessed some very interesting contests. Unfortunately the strong breeze which sprung up about mid day had the effect of raising the dust in clouds, and this marred to a great extent what otherwise would have been a most enjoyable day's enter tainment. The lion, secretary (Mr. Cowper) had for several months previously worked like a Trojan to make the sports a success, and his energy and fitness for the office were manifested on Monday by the com plete arrangements made for the conduct of the meeting. He was ably seconded by the various officers, one and all of whom in their respective positions worked hard. Owing to the absence of Mr. G. Atkinson, Sergt. Smyth was appointed io act as a judge in conjunction with Mr. E. Pearson, and tlieir decisions were promptly given and left no room for cavil. Mr...

MASSACRE BY NATIVES. IN THE NORTHERN TERRlJ^ TORY. CONFIRMATION OF BOBBY'S STORY. ADELAIDE, Janut. rv 1. News from Port Darwin in connec tion with the Northern Territory sen sation confirms beyond doubt that portion of Bobby's story which told of the murder of Bradshaw, Dannock, Skeahan, and Eggoriffe.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, January 3. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Times — 6 January 1906
t~-- - SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, January 3, j Intense heat has prevailed all over South Australia during the past few davs, especially throughout the in terior, . The shade reading in Adelaide yesterday was 107, and to-day it was 112. A strike, which it was thought would affect the whole of the mer chants in the grain trade, occurred at Port Adelaide to-day, but was promptly nipped in the bud by those directly concerned temporarily acceding to the wishes of the discontented men. It is stated, however, that the difficulty has not been finally settled, and farther trouble will probably be experienced in the near future. At noon thirty labourers engaged in unloading wheat from railway trucks and stowing it in the sheds on the ocean steamers9 wharf intimated to their employers, Dalgety & Co., that they were not satisfied with the wages received and that they desired the unionist rate of of pay.
