DE LESSEPS'S FAILURE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890
DE LESSEPS'S FAILURE. The Panama Canal Commission had presented its disheartening report, and De Xesseps has been reluctantly compelled to admit that his great scheme is a disastrous failure. The col lapse hati been too long expeoted to occasion much surprise here. In France, however, the report has deepened the gloom of tho despondent stockholders, the hard earned savings of all classes having been engulfed in the great ditch. De Lesseps and his associates succeeded, by his glowing predictions of success, in securing about 285,000,000 doL from his compatriots, for whioh stocks and bonds were issued to the amount of 426,928,000 doL At the inception of the undertaking De Les sops deolared this canal easier to oonstruct than the Suez Canal. To him tho difficulties pointed out by the American engineers bb insurmount able were mere trifles. He olaimed and demon strated, on paper, that a oanal oould bo dug from- the Atlantio to the Paoifio dovoid of locks, of ample width and dopth for th...

A MOORISH COFFEE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890
A MOORISH COFFEE HOUSE, It was a midwinter night in the old city of Tangiers, a seaport in Morocco. Dinner was over, and we were consulting our cigars on the antinuo balcony clinging to tho side of our lofty hotel, and admiring the spacious bay and weird, silent city below us. As we sat there, wondering what we should do with ; our selves, a Spanish gentleman of our acquaintance came out to us and said briskly — ' Well, gentlemen, how would you like to make a call at tho great Moorish cafS of ' Murad el Hassan ' this evening ? I can assure you that it is well worth a visit.' 'Delighted to go,' we all cried at once, and forthwith started. After winding through dirty, narrow and dan gerous streets for some 15 minutes we reached a huge pile of masonry, one story in height, from whose low, open doorway a bright light was streaming out into the darkness. We entered, and at once found ourselves in a large square room with a low ceiling. On one side was a raised platform, with chairs scatt...

^Jl#I % .^^^Pi^^Tigj?^ ^^Jg]HJ[^J|l^3 THE SWEATERS OF MELBOURNE. ['' Daring the past month a considerable amount of sensation has been caused by the publication in The Age ot a aeries of artioles showing the extent to whioh sweating prevails in the cloth ing trade. Sweating, generally speaking, means 1 working outside a factory at a smaller wage than is obtainable in oho. However, paradoxical it may appear, it is certain that many portions pro for working at home, even though prices are lower, as by doing so theio is no limit to the number of hours anyone may work. This is the case with widows with young ohildrdn, womon: whoso; husbands are ill, sis rIo women who have to look after aged and feeble parents, 'wives of drunkards or criminals, &c. Of all the metropolitan industries thore are very few which, give employment to a greater number of hands than the tailoring trade in its ; different branches, for the bulk of the cloth ) goods required in the colony are supplied from ...

II. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890
II. ? If tho Prince is popular, the Princess is pitied. Perhaps with no little justice. Hor life has not been asinnyone. ? ? ? ? ? ?? '-Theroyal family of Denmark — before prudent King Christian' succeeded in turning two of hia daughters into empresses and one- of his sons into a- king— was decidedly poor. ' Tho home life was simple, even penurious. Alexandra was a weak ohild, fragile and tortured by head* 'aches. These became chronic, and resulted in the deafness from whioh the future Queen of England now suffers. She was a strange girl. Quiet, romantic, retiring, pleased with little and utterly devoid of ambition. Her ono passion was music. Indeed, she has never lost hor lovo - for it. 'I never wanted to marry and leave my mother, 'shosaidonce to the wifeof Dean Stanley, ' but I thought if the time ever came when I must marry I would profer an artist like Lizstto a mere prince.' And it was this girl— with strange, exalted notions of tho courage and chivalrous honor of mon — whose ...
THE PRINCE'S PORTRAIT. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890
THE PRINCE'S PORTRAIT. There is little doubt that tho most popular man in Great Britain to-day is the Prince of Wales; Blue-mouldy Tories, Conservatives, Liberals and Radicals like him. ?-., . . It is equally, beyond doubt that more arrant nonsense ' has been written about him than any man living, bar. Mr. Gladstone.. If,. one is to believe everything one reads, tho Prince is supernaturally wioked and miraculously good ; a roue and a devote. Of oourso.he is none of. these. One might, fairly set him down as a gentleman of average culture, average morals' and average intelli gence. .' ? Tho future Edward . YII., King of Great Britain and (possibly) Ireland and the Colonies and Emperor of India, is a short, fat man, with a red face and a bold head. He is well mannered and agreeable, and certainly deserves the title of ' First Gentleman in Europe ' more than .any of his .boorish Hanoverian ancestors ever did. But there is one thing worth noting. Albert Edward is distinctly un-English. H...

'' A DEAR LITTLE GtRL.' By Ella Hbpworth Dixon. ' Think I shall have urgent business' in Paris;'2 . announced Jaok, with a portentous yawn, ''if you're going to fill the house with schoolgirls, juit when we want to amuse ourselves a little. What in heaven's name are you going to do with her ?; 'Pon my word,' he finishes up with a -groan, 'its absolutely uncivilised of you, . Cooil, and you've generally so much tact.' I glanced at Jack's broad shoulders and hand some, woebegone visage, and burst out laugh ing. 'I am devoted to Jack. We have been married seven years,- and he is certainly tho most 'outrageous flirt I ever come across, but still :. . . I am devoted, to Jack.

THE TRAITOR BANDIT. A BIT OF EARLY CALIFORNIA LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890
THE TRAITOR BANDIT. A BIT OF EARLY CALIFORNIA LIFE. "Murdered, you say?" cried Stump, the &nbsp; &nbsp; miner, "old Twing murdered?" "Sure, replied &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Pat Dogan, "if the old man ain't dead he's mighty good at playing possum, for his eyes are bulged out as big as onions and his face, is as &nbsp; &nbsp; black as the bottom of a camp kettle." As the two men ran towards the log cabin that had served Twing for a trading post, the Irishman continued. "I wint fora bit of bacon and a drop of whisky. 'Hello!' says I, opening the &nbsp; door; devil a word did he answer and the next &nbsp; minute I saw him lying on the floor as dead as a herring." They pushed open the cabin door and found the dead man lying in the middle of the room. The livid ring about his neck, the staring eyes and protruding tongue told only too plainly that he had been strangled to death. There were piles of overturned goods, and th...
EARLY MORNING AT THE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890
EARLY MORNING AT THE MARKET. Melbourne obtains its supply of vegetables and small fruits from the numerous market gardens which lie in and around the city. By far the greater part of these are down by Brigh- ton and Cheltenham, for as one goes further northward from there the number grows less and less till by the time the valley of the Yarra and Heidelberg is reached it is very sensibly reduced in comparison to those along the coast. North and west there are very few gardens at all, and they merely supply local wants. The life of a market gardener is a hard one. He has to work hard all day in good weather and bad, and his profits are by no means commensurate with the trouble he has to take. The Chinese are his great com- petitors, as they do a good trade in vegetables, and John, his little hand cart and bland smile are familiar sights in the suburbs. They, however, most prefer to be near town, probably because by using a small cart the man can perform both the work of horse and sel...
KING'S ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News — 1 July 1890
KING'S ISLAND. King's Island is a small island' lying to the south- west of Melbourne, from which it is distant 'about 120 miles. ' It is a bleak and inhospitable place, tenanted by a few fishermen and hunters, who manage to eke out an ex istence at their respective livelihoods. Lying as it does but a little out of the track of vessels coming to Melbourne, its shores have been the scene of many a dreadful wreck, and even now; the remains of many a gallant ship may be seen half buried in the sands.' Everybody remembers the wreck of the British Admiral there, which caused such a sensation at the time, but fortunatoly since then: there has been no suoh fatality. In early days it was by no means an uncommon thing for ships to| have nnnow escapes from striking, but now lighthouses have been erected, on the principal headland, thus minimising tho danger. Sometime back the island was visited by the Field Naturalists' Society, who succeeded in making a num ber of valuable additions to the f...
