PROFESSOR LANKESTER. ORDERED TO KEEP THE PEACE. LONDON, October 12. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
PROFESSOR LANKESTER. ORDERED TO KEEP THE PEACE. London, October 12. The charge of disorderly conduct brought against Professor Kay Lankester, the Linacre Professor at the Oxford University, has been investigated and the magistrates are con vinced of the defendant's guilt, there being no evidence to sustain his plea that the charge was brought by the police in retaliation for his interference on behalf of a woman whom they had ill-used. At the same time they regarded tbe offence as comparatively trivial!, and the professor was nominally bound over in his own recognisances of £10 to keep the peace. During the proceedings Sir George Lewis, the well-known solicitor, who appeared for the defendant, entered upon a heated altercation with Mr. Newton, the stipendiary magistrate, each flatly contradicting the other, and the result was that Sir George withdrew from the case. Witnesses testified to the absolute sobriety of tbe accused.

There were a few Legislative Councillors in the Speaker's gallery of the Assembly when business began on Thursday, but less than a score of strangers Were present and none of them seemed very interested in the pro ceedings. Only 30 legislators were in their places, but it must be remembered that seven members are up the Murray, while one is absent on leave. Directly the Speaker took the chair Mr. McPherson asked what steps the Government intend to take in respect to the defeat of the Public Salaries Reduction Bill in the Legislative Council.

A FEW INCHES OF PLAIN ENGLISH. Nowadays men are doing all Borts of wonders by means of electricity, both in mechanics and in chemistry. I see by the papers that they expect to be able to produce real diamonds by it. Perhaps they may ; marvels never cease. But we will wait till they do before we crow over that job. Up to this time, anyway, everything that is both valuable and useful is the fruit of hard work. Even diamonds are mostly got out of rocky mines. And, within reasonable limits, it is good for us to have to work. Ten shillings honestly earned is better for a man than twenty in the shape of a legacy. The best condition of things for any country would be when fair wageB could be earned straight along, without loss or deduction for any reason. But in the present aspect of human affairs this is impossible. Whose fault it is we cannot now discuss. One source of loss, however, is plain enough, and some remedy for it ought to be found. In England and Wales every working man average...
WHEN GREEK MEETS GREEK. A TALE OF LOVE AND WAR. CHAPTER I.—A FUGITIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
WHEN GREEK MEETS GREEK. A TALE OF LOVE AND WAR. i. ? By JOSEPH HATTON. ' ^Published by special arrangement with the author. All rights reserved, ] Chatter I.— A Fugitive. From the chaos of a bloodthirsty revolt that xuade itself heard in cries of despair and the clamor of battle, there suddenly started into the light of Marie Bruyset's lamp the fugitive Jaffray Ellicott. ' Hush, mademoiselle,' he said, as she ros« to her feet. ' ' I will not harm you.' 'What do you want ?:J the girl exclaimed, her hand upon the handle of the door. 'Sanctuary 1' he replied, blowing out the light and seizing her as he Bpoke. ' Help !' half cried the girl, the remaining half of the exclamation being stifled by the fugitive pressing his hand over her mouth, that was far too pretty and sweet for such rough usage. 'I will not harm you, mademoiselle,' he whispered, his breath coming and going in gasp. He bolted the door. She made no struggle. There was something reassuring in his voice and touch. A fugitiv...

Williams led the devotional service. The Rev. W. S. Fernie read a paper on 'The power of Christian principles in the ministry and the church.' The Rcy. J. Chapman read a paper on A moral uplift ; the great need of the age.' In an eloquent address the present state of affairs and suggested remedies were dealt with. The rev. gentleman stated that it was in the power of the churches to contribute towards a great moral uplift. He would like to see public morals raised to a higher standard, aitd the status of society might be raised by rearing a better race of men.. A discussion followed, in which the Revs. T. S.

THE TORN FORGED CHEQUE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
THE TORN FORGED CHEQUE. By james McGovan, Author of 'Brought to Bay,' 'Hunted Down,' 'Solved Mysteries,' &c. A stately lady, with a particularly erect carriage, stood before me one afternoon at the Central, and the words ' Old Maid' would have instantly risen in my mind but for the placid and sweet expression of her face... - Her age might have been anything betw§erT30 and 50, but her face was of the kiud^that is always youncr, always attractive, ol-tfays beautiful, for it beamed with eo much^ goodness and trust fulness that I caugnt myself wondering what could have brought her to me. Old maids are a privileged race — they are seldom criminals, they have no heartbreaking sons, no foolish daughters, no faithless husbands ; and so but seldom need the help of a detective. They may have brothers and fathers, but if these be inclined to go wrong they generally savo them before they call for our attention. My visitor, however, settled the matter by giving me her name as Miss Hende...
WOOLGROWERS AND FARMERS' CONFERENCE. Mount Torrens, October 16. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
W00L0R0WERS AND FARMERS' CONFERENCE. Mount Torrens, October 1(5. A conference of woolgrowers and farmers ' was held at the Mount Torrens Hotel to-day, Mr. Charles Dunn presiding. Mr. John Pontt, of Gumeracha, read a paper on 'What I think bimetallism will do,' and Mr. George Thompson, of Adelaide, spoke for about an hour on 'Falling prices: their cause and cure.' There was a small attendance. Mr. Pontt said the question was a serious one. He attributed the cause of the depression to tampering with currency. Let them economise as they would, but things were going wrong. He referred to many of the assigned reasons and the proposed remedies for them, and said that in spite of all they were drifting they knew not where. He believed currency reform was what was wanted. The supply of money must increase as population increased. He would not say that bimetallism would cure .ill, but it was the first step in the right direction. Mr. Thompson said the question -of bimetallism was being discu...
HEINEMANN'S COLONIAL LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
HEINEMANN'S COLONIAL LIBRARY. The 'general reader,' if he have time to re flect at all, must long have stood amazed at the flood of novels that come pouring forth year by year, and even month by month. A man must be a pretty 6teady reader who has once gone through the works of the half dozen great novelists of whom our language can boast ; and when he has once gone through them he must be blessed (or cursed] with a wonderful memory if he cannot with equal pleasure go through them all again. It might have been thought, therefore, that as we are provided with as many good stories as we can read, the novel-writers' trade would come to an end. Each generation, however, seems to require that the mirror should be held up to itself, and that its own peculiar virtues, vices, or follies should be imagined. The writer who aims at depicting contemporary manners is rated in popular estimation much more highly than even the. greatest man or woman who has described human nature in general. In all...
" OLD TIME MEMORIES." [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
' OLD TIME MEMORIES.' Mr. Simpson Newland, author of ' Paving the Way,' has embodied in a pamphlet some recollections of pioneer life in South Australia. Though chiefly relating to personal adventure ' Old Time Memories, as the publication is entitled, contains ruany facts of permanent interest which justify the author's sugges tion that it may prove serviceable to the historian of the future. Mr. New land in vivid language describes tho settlement of the 'band of pioneers' at Encounter Bay who arrived in the Sir Charles Forbes in 1839, after a voyage occupying between five and six months. The writer's father, the Rev. R. W. Newland, who was at the head of the party, had originally deter mined to settle in Adelaide, but as he found another minister of the same de nomination, the Rev. T. Q. Stow, already in possession he took the advice of Colonel Gawler, then Governor, to whom he had letters of introduction from Lord Glenelg, the Secretary of State for the Colonies, and proceeded to...
MARK TWAIN AND MENTAL TELEPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
MARK TWAIN AND M3SNTAL TELEPATHY. An article on mental telepathy by Mark Twain appears in Harper's Magazine for Sep tember. It is a subject he has written on before. Several times it has happened to him to think of a person or write to a person who had been long out of his mind, and to discover that that person had been making approaches, to him at the very same moment. A few of the instances given in the Harper article will be found below : — Several years ago 1 made a campaign on the platform with Mr. ? George W. Cable. In Montreal we were honored with a reception. It began at 2 in the afternoon in a long draw ing-room in the Windsor Hotel. Mr. Cable and I stood at one end of this room, and the ladies and gentlemen entered it at the other end, crossed it at that end, then came un the long left-hand side, Bhook hands with us, said a word or two; and passed on in the usual way. My sight is of the tele Bcopic sort, and I presently recognised a familiar face among the throng of strang...
" THE ADVENTURES OF ARTHUR ROBERTS." [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 19 October 1895
' TEE ADVENTURES OF ABTEUR ROBERTS.' Readers who may dip into 'The Adven tures of Arthur Roberts, by Rail, Road, and River, told by himself and chronicled by Richard Morton' (Arrowsmith), will find (remarks the Westminster Gazette) a good deal to amuEe them. Some of the stories are perhaps a trifle 'thin,' and a few of ihe jokes are rather lacking in point, but the variety of the Lion Comique's budget makes up for ail}- minor deficiencies it may possess. Mr. Roberts made his first public appearance about the mature age of 13, in connection with some Penny Readings, and gradually worked his way to more ambitious performances. While emplos'ed as a bank clerk at fifty shillings a week, he took occasional engage ments as a comic singer at such places aa tbe Town Hall, Shoreditch ; Myddleton HaiJ, Islington ; and at Greenwich, at half a guinea a time ; but the prospect of securing £12 a week by undertaking two turns at East-End music-halls presented itself, and decided his fate. Mr. Robe...
