Extraordinary Case of Personation. SOMETHING LIKE TICHBORNE'S. A case of personation which has been going on for a long time has just been brought to :v. light, but as the victim dees not care to prosecute, nothing fur ther will be heard of it. It is said to be on the lines of the Tichborne case. It appears : that in 1868 a man in a good position in a bank in New York married, and soon after got into tronble about money, but he obtained money to square his accounts, and came r out to Australia. His wife and family went to England, where r ? the eldest son became smart in business, jmd was sent out to Victoria to open up a branch, Some two years later he was called on in Melbourne by an elderly, starved-looking man, who stated he was his father, and he gave such accurate de tails of the family that the son ? believed him to be his father, and supported him for years.

To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser — 22 March 1894

Jo the Editor. Sir, — I think it high time that there was some new regulations made con cerning our - Public Works Depart ment in the contracting line, especially road works. Why does not the de partment make an estimate price of each contract they are letting for public tender, and let the tenderer (u ho is thought capable of carrying the contract through) have the. work that is any thing near their estimate. Of course the estimate that the Depart ment makes, .should, allow the con tractor to give his men seven shillings per day, that is good workmen. Here we have lately contracts taken at a price that the contractors are offering men ten shillings per week and tucker. I suppose that is for every six days they work they are paid ten shillings, that is if the contract allows the contractor to pay that amount. I am doubtful if some of the contracts that hava boen taken will allow the contractor to pay that amount. I am not alluding to all the contracts taken ir. this district lately ...
