BEECROFT. Daring Robbery. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
BEBCBOFT. 'I [feoii oub ooBsmoKDEirr.] I Daring Bobbery. Early on Friday morning, the Station office was broken into, and the safe burst xjpen, and the money, about £6, stolen. The structure, which serves as the offioe, is a second-hand one, having served elsewhere before, it was placed here ; and apparently the_ robber or robbers had little difficulty in opening the door. This eSected, a small hole was drilled through the top of the safe, and a cbaipe of explosives — dynamite probably — inserted. The explosion had the effect of breaking the bolt of the lock, and opening the safe. Tbe offioe clock was found stopped at 17 minutes to five ; and at the same time several residents close to the station heard a loud report, though they took no par ticular notioe of it : so that that was about tbe time the robbery took place, no doubt. Sbme valuable documents of the Station-master are missing ; but the tickets are intaot, excepting that they show signs of the explosion. Whosoever the robbe...

The Grauville Borough Council and those Ornamental Trees. (To THE EDITOR) [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Free Press — 3 August 1895
The Granville Borough Council and those Ornamental Trees. (To THE EdjTOh). Sir, — Through the medium of your praise worthy weekly, I would like to draw the attention of the Granville ratepayers to the conduct of ; their civic representatives with regard to the ! matter of those ornamental trees, which, I quite recently, in one of their lucid intervals, they magnanimously decided to disperse— free gratis— amongst the possessors of humble homes in this Borough. At least, so these poor people were betrayed into believing. And, with extravagant visions of lofty pines, and majestic o&ks, not to mention aspiring poplars | and the graceful weeping willow,, surrounding ; their previously unadorned and stu-shrivelled oot, they sent in their mild appeal for a share of the promised blessings. But, lo I shattered now are their fondest hopes 1 money is again the qualification. And, air, this is ootually what it amounts to. The conditions yon have to submit to, are, I understood, of a nat...
