Cricket. CRICKET GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
©rickri. CRICKET GOSSIP. [By 'Onlooker.'] The cricket season wul open in earnest to day at the Adelaide Oval, and during-the week members of the senior association have been putting in some good practice. The next Australian Eleven is a matter that is being freely discussed at the present time by followers of cricket, and many people are be: ginning already to try and select the team. This is a somewhat difficult contract, as the candidates will have to play through a lon-* season before the final selection is made, and intercolonial matches may bring out one or two young players who will cause older men to stay at home. The Cricket Council of Australasia have given their consent to an Australian eleven visiting England in 189G, so that it is pretty well certain that an eleven will be sent to the old country. The manager of the team will be appointed on December 27, and South Australia has some claim to filling the billet on this occasion. Either Mr. G. M. Evan or Mr. J. Creswell wo...

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1895. THE PUBLIC SALARIES BILL. The House of Assembly, by its action in altering the Public Salaries Bill, refused the Government £15,000 of the sum of £32.000 which they hoped to save at the expense of Civil servants.

This decision was Arrived at by the substantial majority of five votes, and accordingly there is little encouragement for the Government to attempt its reversal. The general policy and the detailB of Jhe measure Bplit parties in the Council in rather a curious fashion, but this was not particularly surprising. Little, if any thmg, could be said in favor of the Bill except as a measure of financial expe diency. How far the claims of expediency should be admitted,. and to what extent principle may be relaxed under the pres sure of .temporary ? exigency, were questions sure to occasion disagree ment even...

THE BOWDEN-ANDERSON D1SPOTE. Melbourne, October 16. Mr. J. C. Bowden stated to^ay that he was anxious that some final decision should 1m reached soon in the dispute between himself and Mr. Arthur Anderson, but said he did not believe in a board of enquiry consisting of re presentatives from the-V.R.C.t V.A.T.O., and Victorian Club committees, be cause he has friends upon those bodies ?nrVin woiiM naturally not act, and he would not like to be judged by those whom be believed to be ill-disposed towards him.

Mr. Bowden had the names of several eligible men in hiB mind, but for fear it might affect the enquiry he would not suggest the personnel of the board. Sir. Arthur Anderson, when seen subse quently declined to further discuss the matter. He had...

CANDIA. A THREATENED REBELLION. London. October 16. A repetition is imminent of the grave dis turbances which occurred last year in Candia, an island of the Mediterranean lying to the south of the iEgean Sea and Archipelago, and appertaining to Turkey/ Owing to the injustice with which they have been treated 1,000 of the Christian notables of the island have taken up arms, and to avoid arrest have retreated to the mountains.

The execution in February last year of four Christians who had been sentenced to death for various crimes led to grave dis turbances throughout the island. Several Mussulmans had also been sentenced to death, but only oue was executed, and the apparent injustice greatly exasperated the Christians. The assembly of delegates from all parts of the island met at Khama on July 5, and petitioned the Sultan to replace the system of taxation introduced in 1890 by the...
