The Napoleon of the Turf. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 23 May 1885
: The Napoleon of the Turf. It.is some six-and-thirty years since, Lord George Bentinck died, and still his name exercises a sort of spell over sportsnmen, s80. Ithat- none care to speak lightly 'or disparag ingly of him. I confess that for my part I .rgard." the Napoleon of the Turf," as he was aptly called,, with less awe and admiration now than I did "in my hot youth,"' but I hardly dare,to, say so, lest.I should be hounded out of all decent sporting society as a miscreant and blasphemer. I cannot now telieve that he was the political genius his' infatuated admirers declared him to be, and I am half inclined to credit the story that his greatest speech in the House of Commons was prepared for him by his friend Benjamin Disraeli. However, this is not the place in which to criticise Lord George's political career-I am only concerned with him as a Turfite, and more particularly as the brilliant leader of a long, and, on the whole, not in glorious war against the betting ring. Even w...

Correspondence. PUBLIC BUILDINGS, To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenscliff Sentinel — 23 May 1885
Correspondence 1 . . ...w - :o : - , PU.JBLIC BfUILDINGS, To the Editor. Sir.---Judging from tie report of the deputation, I do ,not thinlk your leader on the proposed new pnblic buillings pits the matter fairly. In the first, place. the land opnosite the Grainl hotel was vested in the cnuncil as a pelrmainent reserve for public aid municipal bui!ld ings. Now. the idea is to erect law officee and post and telegraph offices, and no suggestion is made to include a council chamber and town clerk's offiee, in return for the land. If the Govern ment will: nott build the latter, then let them buy a piece of ground or utilise some other Govelnmentut rouind for the purpose, and i'e can :hold the present site opposite the Grand till sueh time as we are ready to use it for muni. ipal purposes. I think the ratepayers agree that the Government should give us what we require in the way of munici pal accommodation, and not charge the borough rent for the saine. s they will do.

Police Court. Tuesday, 19th May. (Before Mr T. S. D. Heron, P.M., and Messrs Simpson and Cuzens, J's.P.) -Robert Fitzsimmonds, on remand, was cha"ged with unlawfully assaulting one R. Hastings, a carpenter, employed on the fortifications. The evidence of the prosecutor went to show how un mercifully accused beat him on the ground. Mrs Sheehan corroborated this story. The prisoner, who made a good defence, pleaded guilty, but his elocu tionary skill was of no avail with: the bench, as they considered the assault unprovoked, and he was fined L5, with 30s costs for Dr Scott's attendance, in default two months' imprisonment. The managers of the Grand Hotel pleaded guilty to a charge of having his bar open on Sunday. 10th instant. As it was his first offence, and the first case ever brought before the bench on the Cliff, he was fined the lowest penalty the law allowed. viz., £1. George Floppan alias Wilson was called, but did not appear, on a charge of using obscene language, The usual c...

To the Editor, Sir,-Having read your leading article in last Saturday's Sentinel on what you consider the best way of pro viding sites for the several new public buildings spoken of as required, I think your views on the standpoint you take np for it are well reasoned out, but I am sure you will be ready to admit that to public questions there are generally two sides to it, and, in this instance. there is particularly so. You, will, therefore,'T trust allow nie to express my views on this question. I shall take the supposed new postofice as wanted. The way the Government will naturally look at it wvill be this-It is necessary that it shall he central, and. as near to the flagstaff as possible. To meet these views, it cannot be placed far from where it now stands, besides a large proportion of the ratepayers would petition against its being taken to the reserve as you propose, Next, you delicately hint as to a wish that the readingroom and library might also be taken to this said res...
