THE KELLY SYMPATHISERS [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 11 November 1880

THE KELLY SYMPATHISERS A meeting of persons desirous of obtaining a reprieve for the condemned man Edward Kelly was held on Fri- day night in the Hippodrome, Stephen street. It was convened by the brothers Gaunson, and was attended by at least 6,000 persons. Only 4,000 were able to secure admittance, and the remainder had to remain out- side in the street. The crowd was of a miscellaneous description, compris- ing 200 or 300 women from Little Bourke-street and the vicinity, large numbers of the larrikin class, and hundreds of workingmen and others who were attracted by mere curiosity. Mr. Hamilton, phrenologist, acted as chairman, and the speakers were Messrs. D. Gannson, Wm. Gaunson, and T. P. Caulfield. Mr. Gaunson reviewed the convict's case at great length, and argued that Kelly con- scientiously believed that the police came after him and his brother for the purpose of shooting them down like dogs; but he did not intend to shoot any of them but simply wanted to make prisoners o...

CONCERT AT WATERLOO. A highly successful concert was held at the bMechanics' Institute, Waterloo, on the 12th inst, in aid of the Church of England building fund. The hall was well filled, particularly the front seats, which were crowded. Before such an audience the singers could not fail to do their best. Proceedings were inaugurated by Mrs. Harrison and Miss Nicol (whom we do not remember having heard before) playing a pianoforte duet in splendid style, which showed their thorough knowledge of the instrument. Next on the programme was a song by Mr. Ferguson, ina, like yon Bright Orb, which he rendered in excellent style, the accompaniment by Miss Love being simply perfect, which reflects great credit on herself and talented tutor. Mrs. Hampton sang the Bonnie Hills of Scot land, her full rich voice ringing through the building, and on conclud:ng she was greeted with loudapplause.

L.W.C. to Regent street tailor: "Sir, when my bill is tired of standing, pray let it sit down too.-Yours, &c." Theur is a nice little story, very popular in nurseries, that the power of steam was discovered by a young gentleman who noticed that the lid of his mother's tea-kettle bobbed uip and dosin as the water boiled. I believe, in the veracious narrative referred to, that young gentleman went straight away andt constructed a steam-engine, and that very soon afterwards railways and steamlboats sprang u, like mnshro...

THE BUNCH OF VIOLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 18 November 1880

THE BUNCH OF VIOLETS. It was a stormy night in June. The fair weather of many weegs had been followed by a tempest of. more than ordinary severity, and the elements seemed resolved to prove that their previous mildness should not hie taken as a sin of continuousi inactivity. Amid the blinding rain, the howling wind, the constant rolling of the thunder, and the flashing of the lightning, a man sat bare headed and unmoved. ! Foril his own mind there raged a tempest greater than that of Nature. Big drops rolled down his face other than those fromnt the clouds; his form was shaken, but not by the blast; and his groaning could be beard above the cracking of the branches and the sighing of the leaves. In his hand lie held a wjithcreT bunch of vio lets. And, in truth, his case was passing pitiful. He had been happy-too happy ; and, without waining, the cup of happiness hald been dashed from his lips.' Before him stretched the future-a vast sea of doubt and care, with no beacon of hope to i...
