A PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM. (" JACK THE HIPPER.") BY DB. N. OLIVER; Author of "THE KING OP GOLD," "CONVICT 72, " ALMEDA," ETC. ? CHAPTER I. J have ten days, three hours, and twenty minutes to live! How straDge that looks upon tbe paper before me as I write it. I laugh 8B I finish. Laugh, not through merriment, not from the natural lightness of the heart, but because it will be a joyful release to me when that blest time comes. Strange that a man should feel a delicious sensation of joy at tbe thought of the coming -of bis last hour. Strange ? Yes ; in an or dinary human being-in any one of tbe ?thousands who live in the world as it is, as it used to be to me. But I am not as theBe. The world is not to me as to them. I am not like any creature who draws the breath of life. God would not permit any other to be as I am, to suffer as I have. I have a short time to live. There is much to do; I must be about it. I must write what I dare not say. I must give to the world the strangest history...

Rhgmster's Corner. An Editorial Wail. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 April 1892

Jhpateifa dfornty An Editorial Wail. IF you happen while exuberating in your own verbosity, To write up some snuffy einner in a style that knows not platitudes, You can bet your sweet existence he will call you a monstrosity, And assail you in your sanctum with his pugilistic attitudes. And your editorial dignity he'll treat with wild hilarity; And hell mention that your style of work is not the proper caper, Adding gravely, "Far too long, my friend, you've lived upon my <&arity, To punish you is only meet-I'm going to stop my paper." Or if perchance the fates decree it, and you slate some aged duffer, 'Who has scarcely got back-bone enough to cherish animosity, And who'd fill the bill acceptably as a sort of railroad buffer, Simply on account of Jus excessive pulchri tudinosity, You can stake your little pile that he will call around complainingly, Staring you nght out of countenancc, like any country gaper, And when he has finished speaking to his argu ment, sus...

THE WINDSOR MURDER. BY TELEGRAPH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) MELBOURNE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 April 1892

THE WINDSOR MURDER. 1$Y TELEOBAPH. (FBOM ODE ovm OOEEESPONBENT.) MELBOURNE, Saturday. IN the Central Criminal Couit yesterday, Williams, alias Deeming, was charged with the murder of his wife at Windsor. After the charge was read over, Williams was asked how he would plead, and in a firm voice he replied, " Not guilty." He asked the warder if ho could sit down, and receiving a reply in the affirmative, sat down on a small stool. Messrs. Furlong and Deakin appeared for accused, instructed by Mr. Lyle. Williams' counsel, upon applying for an adjournment of the trial, pleaded that with the existing public feeling accused was not likely to have a fair trial, and there had not boon sufficient time to prepare the defence. Another point was, that the Press had ex pressed criticisms on the case in a manner unparalleled in history in similar actions, and it was stated that abuse and execration had been heaped upon the prisoner in some of the said articles. Then followed a number of extracts ...

NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND, Monday. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 April 1892

NEW ZEALAND. AUCKLAND, Monday. The steamer Monowai arrived yesterday and brings Samoan files to April 16. Prom these it appears all attempts to reconcile the two hostile native ffictions have not only failed but resulted in a more bitter feeling between the respective followers of King Tomare and Mataafa, Many rumours are prevalent in Apia ae to the strength and intentions of the Mata&fa party. News by the llonowai from San Francisco states that the reported revolution in Hono lulu turns out to be a silly scare, possessing no political significance. Mr. J-. Alexander, the well-known solicitor at Auckland, died suddenly yesterday. The police have requested that an inquest be

LONGREACH GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 26 April 1892

LONG-REACH GOSSIP. OUR corresjxjiidcnt alludns to a few matters which arc dealt with in our district news else where as follows:-There appears to be some difficulty pending in the building trade here. It seems Messrs. Bremner and Evans, contrac tors of Rockliampton, secured the contract of the station buildings, and liave based the tender upon the ruling' rates of wages in their town, which are from 10s. to 12s. per day. The Carpenters' Union here complained of these men working for ft less sum than 14s. per day, although, if Messrs. Bremner & Evans were to give the extra 2s. per day, this would make a difference in their contract and against their profit of a sum equal to £114- for the comple tion of building. All the contractors of note think the present rate of wages, £4 4s., too much. Some arc only worth according to the builders 7s. per day, and yet by union rates are entitled to 14s. for that time.-Many cot tages on the lately surveyed allotments are being rapidly buil...

WEST AND EAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 3 May 1892

WEST AND EAST. A WHITER in the Maryborough Chronicle pro phecies war between the districts of the inte rior and the coast. He says what happened in the Barcoo will very likely happen in many of the western electorates. There are far more men than masters ; all are registered on the roll ready for the fray. The men caro nothing for the sugar indutry; they do not like it; they will not work in the cane-lields, and, therefore, have no sympathy with it. It is no use telling such men that capital will drop it altogether if the kanaka is not on hand. Learned as they are with past and present experiences, they say, "l«t capital drop it; what sympathy hare wo with capital if it betiie loser." "What has capital done for me?" cries a leader of tlio Union. Here am I now in rage, with no link tying we to the colony but my vote, and I intend to use that in memory of the past." That this "memory" is of somewhat elastic character may be taken as a fact, for it does not clearly defme what Sir T. M'...
