THE RECENT DEATH UNDER SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES. THE CASE OF MRS. BEEDRAM. Information has reached the police during the past few days which it is be lieved will account for the movements of Mrs. Beedham, the subject of the recent coroner's inquiry, during the three hours she was absent from the hotel in Litttle Collins street on the Thursday night before her death. The coroner laid great stress on the importance of discovering where Mrs. Beeham went to on that Thursday night, and pointed out that if an illegal operation was performed, that ras in all probability the time chosen for it. The inquest was adjourned for a fortnight to allow of these blanks being, if possible, filled. The information now in the hands of the poliee, from ap parently trustworthy sources, though it bas not yet been followed up as tho roughly as it will be, shows that not only was abortion procured, but gives particulars as to the name and resi dence of the person who performed the operation, and also as to ...

IN MEMORIAM. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 27 May 1887
IN MEMORIAM. The Hobart Mercury of May 14, gives the following obituary notice con oerning an old colonist :-" Yesterday morning there passed away one of the now rapidly disappearing colonists of the early days, and one who has played a varied and important part in the pro- gress of Tasmania. Mr. Frederick Lipscombe died at his residence, the Derwent Nursery, Sandy Bay, quietly in his bed, at the age of 79 years. The deceased has been in this colony for over half a century, and is said to have been one of the earliest settlers of Western Australia. In any case the family have every reason to believe that he built the first house ever erected at Swan River. There was very little prospect of a com- fortable settlement there for years, so Mr. Lipscombe came over to this colony, and took up some land on the Brown's River road, close to Cartwright's. He was then joined by his two brothers Henry, an enthusiastic and successful cricketer of the old school, who died some years ago; and Edwa...

GENERAL SCHAW AND THE DEFENCES AT THE HEADS. SENSATIONAL MISSTATEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 3 June 1887
GENE'RAL SCHAW AND THE DEFENCES AT THE HEADS, SENSATIONAL MISSTATEMENTS. Some satements: purporting to give the opinions formed by General Schaw upon the defences at the Heads, which ho has just inspected at the request.of the Government, have obtained publicity. These statements are officially stated to require the most explicit contradiction. The alleged "criticisms," we are as sured by General Schaw,. are so wholly without foundation as to be purely im aginary. The fiction has been repudi ated by General Schaw, who read the report in question with much surprise. It is not merely an exaggeration, but an invention. General Schaw, so far from expressing himself freely, as he is represented to have done, as to the con clusions which he has formed respecting the defences, regards the information as confidential until it shall have'been fur nished to the Government, "who have asked for the report. To disclose any of the contents of the report would be a breach of official etiquette, wh...

TERRIBLE SCENE AT A FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 3 June 1887
TERRIBLE SCENE AT A FIRE. The Richlmod Hotel at Buffalo, United States, has been totally de stroyed by fire. When the flames were observed at an early hour on 18th March, it was soon ascertained that it proceeded from the cloak room, which was on the first floor of the building. The shaft of the elevator acted as a flue, and within a few minutes every floor of the pile was on fire. An electric alarm bell had been fitted on each floor, and this being put into action speedily awakened the large number who were sleeping in the hotel. They rushed to the windows, from which some leaped in desperation, while others managed to escape by walking along the parapets to the adjoining houses. The accounts of some of the escapes almost exceed belief. It is stated that one person, despairing of the possibility of getting out of the house, returned to his room ready to die, but was rescued by a fire man, how gallantly brought him forth from the flames. Another hung from a window sill for four minu...

He at once reversed the lever and applied the brake, but he was unable to stop the train, which dashed into the siding, and ran against four trucks, which were thrown off and upset. The engine escaped, but many men were hurt. Several of them jumped off when they saw the danger, but those who stuck to the waggons came off best.

From the statement of the constables, it appears that Constable M'Corry saw Smith and several other men creating a disturbance at the corner of Bourke and Swnnston-streets. He spoke to them, and asked them to desist, and they replied in very vile language. He en deavored to arrest Smith, but was violently resisted. Constable Maxwell came to his assistance, and a great struggle ensued, in which the constables were very roughly handled.
