with the services of .the Government rabbit in
spectors throughout, is meeting with streiinous
opposition from those shire councils whoso terri
tory is infested by tho pest. Yesterday the
matter was brought under the attention tf the
Marong Shire Council by.the acting president
(Cr. Nicholl), who moved-"That this council
views with alarm that the Government contem
plates the abolition of tho rabbit inspectors, as
bad as ever." Cr. Nicholl remarked that he
now; in fact, it was a rare thing to
see one. He was sure if the work of.rab
ever.' He had been greatly affected by the
rabbits and was aware of the good woi ft done
by both inspectors M'Namara and Mackay. If
they were kept on for another 12,or 18 months
they would pretty well have got" rid of the
rab\)its altogether. Cr. Bailey secondod the
the work as well as the inspectors. Cr. Sterrv
was pleased that the acting president" had
brought the subject forward. Ho felt that if
away with the good work slrendy done would
be entirely lost. Tho shire was, comparatively
speaking, fairly free from rabbits, and the in
spectors and the landowners must be congratu
out the work. Cr. Hart said he lived in an in

if the rabbit inspectors were abolished. At

for while Melbourne was hysterical over

ing of "The World's Fair." Chicago

sake of the city and its people, will not be

something very big. The World's Fair is

of the character and extent of the "World's
Fair." The buildings of which it is com-
posed form a city in themselves — a city of
palaces. It is situated some miles south of
Venice-like in the midst of lagoons, carals,
etc., formed by the waters of Lake Michigan.
The buildings, which are designed by dif-
lath and plaster composition, which is
said to harden with exposure to
the air, and resembles stone in ap-

ing is the Johntone dome, 560 feet high
and 230 feet in diameter, around which an
electric spiral railway runs capable of carry-
ing 2,000 passengers per hour. At night
8,000 electric lamps. The fair proper is
bounded by a boulevard five miles long,

which go to makeup the whole. Each of
these is a respectable exhibition building in

THE COURTS.— The May sitting of the Ben-
to a conclusion yesterday. The Court of Mines
was formally opened and the case of Stacey v.
Crichton, a Heathcote case, was mentioned,
but as the parties were not prepared to go on
the court closed. The Court of Insolvency was
then opened and good progress made in dis-
posing of the cases on the list, when the court
adjourned until 10 o'clock this morning.
JUDGE CASEY ON MINING.— His Honor Judge
Casey, who is presiding at the present sittings
of the courts in this city, does not appear to
have a very high opinion of sharebrokers or
mining speculators. During the hearing of
one of the cases the question arose as to whether
the witness had acted as a broker or as the
principal in the matter. "Oh, we all know
what these sharebrokers are," remarked his
Honor, "If it suits them they act as brokers
or agents, but when the necessity arises they
quietly turn themselves round three times and
say that they were acting as principals." His
Honor's remarks did not meet with approval
from the large number of sharebroker's who
were in court. When the Court of Insolvency
opened in the afternoon Mr. Rymer made an
application on behalf of a client for dispensation
of the statutory dividend, and the issue of a
certificate of discharge. One of the reasons
given in the affidavit was that the insolvent
had sustained heavy losses in mining. His
Honor expressed his intention pf refusing the
application, as he did not consider that was a
valid excuse at all. A man might just as well
go on to a racecourse and gamble his money
away there as to say that he could not pay
just debts, because he had lost his money in
mining. The application was, by the consent
of the court, withdrawn.
THE LATE MR. T. FIZELLE.— The funeral
at the White Hills cemetery. A large number
attended, amongst them being the town cleric
(Mr. W. Honeybone), assistant town clerk
(Mr. G. Pownall) , Mr. S. G. Gadd (parks and
gardens curator) and a number of other cor-
poration employes. The Rev. Mr. Cole officiated
at the grave. Mr. T. Sayer had charge of the
mortuary arrangements.
INTERESTING TO SHAREHOLDERS.— The case of
J. H. Jackman v. J, Burke for the recovery of
£47 10s, money paid by the plaintiff in defend-
ing a case brought against the plaintiff at the
County Court in Bendigo in November last in
which were subsequently sold to the defendant,
was resumed and concluded yesterday, and his
Honor Judge Casey decided in favor of the
Plaintiff and Messrs, Putnam, Russell, Call and
Dade, through whose hands the shares had also
passed. Mr. Burke has to bear the costs of the
hearing so far as the plaintiff and Mr. Putnam
are concerned. An extended report of the case,

be learned with satisfaction that vigorous mea-
sures are now being taken to stamp out the evil.
The first fruits of these measures were witnessed
yesterday morning, at the Police Court, when
11 persons, many of whom were young men of
should be attributes. They were all charged
with having played football in a public thorough-
fare on Sunday, 23rd April, and all save four
pleaded guilty. Constables Garland and Rosen-
brook stated that on visiting Bayne and
Bannister streets on the date mentioned,
young men playing with two footballs. On
being observed the offenders made off at the
gesticulating. The four defendants, who
that although they were present they took no part
in the offence. One stated that he was a mar-
he should be ashamed of himself. A married
man should have set a better example to the
others. The P.M. further remarked that such
conduct was disgraceful. He had, in his walks
on a Sunday afternoon not long ago, remon-
strated with a young man for like conduct.
The young man at once possessed himself of a
stone, incited a dog to attack him (the P.M.),
and called several of his companions to his as-
sistance. For a time he feared the lot were
going to attack him. Life would not be
worth living in the outskirts of the city
shortly if such conduct were allowed to con-
tinue. In no other country in the world was it
to be found or would it be tolerated, and he had
failed to notice it any other part of Victoria. It
appeared to be indigenous to this city, and if
not speedily checked, people would not be able
to go into the outskirts on account of the half-
drunken larrikins, footballers, card players,
and men with dogs who infested the place.
Fines ranging from 5s to 10s were imposed on
each of the defendants . Sergeant Fahey stated
that the police intended to take measures to
put down the larrikinism which obtained in the
environs, and which was becoming such a nui-

A DANGEROUS BRIDGE. — Cr. Hart again
over the Loddon at Newbridge. The worst
part of the bridge was on the Tarnagulla side,
would occur before long. Two new "bays"
were urgently needed. Mr. G. Minto, junr.
(shire engineer), stated that the bridge seemed
likely to collapse when the wet weather sets in.
Cr. Nicholl remarked that the bridge had been
It was perfectly hopeless to expect to get any-
thing from the Tarnagulla borough towards the
construction of a new bridge, and just now it
looked as if they could not get anything from
the Government. A new bridge would cost
about £3,000. Cr. Hart moved that the engi-
neer report as to the best means of repairing the
bridge; that notices be posted that the council
accepted no responsibility, and that those going
over the bridge with loads over two tons in
weight, would do so at their own risk. Cr.
Glen seconded the motion, which was carried.
AN INCIDENT IN THE COUNTY COURT.— Dur-
ing the hearing of the case of Vanderfeen v.
Craike in the County Court yesterday counsel
for the plaintiff (Mr. Lazarus) received a rather
severe rebuke from Judge Casey, who presided.
His Honor, who had previously overruled the
points of law raised by Mr. Lazarus, and was
proceeding to deliver his decision on the case
when Mr. Lazarus interjected a couple of re-
marks. His Honor proceeded with the delivery
of his decision, when counsel again rose to make
some comments, when his Honor stopped
abruptly, and, in tones that showed unmistak-
ably the annoyance he felt, exclaimed : " ???
down, sir. You have twice before interrupted
the judge while delivering his decision, and I
will not allow it. It is not often I allow it. I
may be wrong at times, and if I am, I al-
ways glad to have my errors pointed out to me
but you have risen a third- time, and to speak
pure nonsense. " Mr. Lazarus apologised for
the interuption, and his Honor continued the
delivery of his decision without further trouble
DEATH OE THE SNAKE CHARMER.— The
Echuca correspondent of the Standard le-
graphs (sic) that Professor Hullar, the snake cha-
mer who was bitten on Monday night by a
hospital. Dr. Eakins states that death was
due to various complaints, but chiefly to
poison in the system and inflammation of the
kidneys.
CONCERT AT LONG GULLY.— Last evening a
concert, was given in the Bible Christian School-
room, Long Gully, under the auspices of the
Sutton Tent, I O.R. There was a large
audience, and Bro. R. Richards, C.R of
Sutton Tent, presided. Earnest addresses were
delivered during the evening by Mr. G. L.
Bolton and Mr. Jos. Gilbert, who spoke of the
universal benefits arising from abstinence from
alcoholic liquors, which had wrought so much
evil amongst all classes of society. The beliefs
offered by the Rechibite Order were detailed by
the chairman, who issued an invitation for new
members. Subsequently a very good programme
each eliciting marked approval. Those who so
contributed to the entertainment were Misses

BENDIGO MINING MANAGERS' ASSOCIATION.
— The monthly meeting of this association took
place at Eaglehawk on Wednesday, Mr.
Samuels presided, and there wore also present :
— Messrs. J. Woolcock, R. Youldon, W. H.
Clark, J. Uren. T. Pollick , and the secretary.
The president stated that his paper on "The
Saddle Reefs of Bendigo " would be published
in two or three weeks time, and asked for per-
mission that it he issued under the auspices or
patronage of the association. Granted. The
secetary read a paper on "Mr. Dunn's Report

was passed to the secretary for his paper. The

tions for situations of mining managers, both in

Queen of the Forest was held at the Beehive
Exchange last evening to take into considera-
tion the advisability of amalgamation or other-
wise, Bro. A, Smeaton, C.R., of the Bendigo
Lodge, presided, and there was a large attend-
ance of members. The matter was fully dis-
cussed for nearly two hours, and eventually
resolution was agreed to referring the matter
back to the amalgamation committee, who were
empowered to add to their number with a view
to bringing up a scheme that would be practic-
able. T he meeting then closed,.

THE GOVERNMENT RABBIT INSPECTORS.—
with the services of the Government rabbit in-
spectors throughout, is meeting with strenuous
opposition from those shire councils whoso terri-
tory is infested by the pest. Yesterday the
matter was brought under the attention of the
Marong Shire Council by the acting president
(Cr. Nicholl), who moved — "That this council
views with alarm that the Government contem-
plates the abolition of the rabbit inspectors, as
bad as ever. Cr. Nicholl remarked that he
now; in fact, it was a rare thing to
see one. He was sure if the work of rab-
ever. He had been greatly affected by the
rabbits and was aware of the good work done
by both inspectors McNamara and Mackay. If
they were kept on for another 12 or 18 months
they would pretty well have got rid of the
rabbits altogether. Cr. Bailey seconded the
the work as well as the inspectors . Cr. Sterry
was pleased that the acting president had
brought the subject forward. He felt that if
away with the good work already done would
be entirely lost. The shire was, comparatively
speaking, fairly free from rabbits, and the in-
spectors and the landowners must be congratu-
out the work. Cr. Hart said he lived in an in-
fested district and he would suffer very much
if the rabbit inspectors were abolished. At
present the rabbits were very scarce. Crs.
was carried unanimously. On the motion of Cr.
Nicholl it was also decided to request Cr.
present a copy of the foregoing resolution to

A DANGEROUS MIXTURE.— The Standard
writes:— An important prosecution, under the
revisions of the Poisons Act, was taken by the
Pharmacy Board in the District Court yester-
day. Henry Edward Peate, secretary Tysons
Sanatorium was charged with having sold for
£10 10s two bottles of Dr.Tyson's vegetable cure
for drunkenness to Mr. Chas. C. Oak. Oak
bought the mixture for use by a patient at Beech-
worth, who died from heart disease. At the in-
quest the medical evidence showed that the medi-
harmless, contained a quantity of strychnine, a
tablespoonful of which was quite sufficient to
cause death, and half a teaspoonful administered
to a child would have proved fatal. The bench
held that a case had been made out, and fined
Peate £5, with £5 5s costs. Mr. Johnston ap-
peared for the Pharmacy Board, and Mr. Kil-
patrick for the defence.
THE STEENS.— The public of Bendigo will

BENDIGO, THURSDAY, SEPT. 15, 1898.
THE WOMEN'S FRANCHISE.
at last been taken in the Legislative Coun-
the extension of thy franchise to women,
has been rejected by four votes. The
defeat of the bill has, however, been more
favor. On last occasion upon which the
voting, and the joint measure was rejected
on the second reading, no opportunity being
given to members to register their votes in
the two questions separately. That the
rejected by four votes on a division of 34
clings to old notions, and the consterna-
particular proposal in past years, indi-
cates that the frequentl expressed
has not been without its effect on the
"grave and reverend signiors" who com-
pose that branch of the Legislature. Con-
verts have been won over, and there is
victory will crown the efforts of the ad-
vocates of the bill, and that the women of
South Australia. The arguments advanced
were in the main those which have been oft-
Wrixton. But even that gentleman in his
difficult ask of attempting to prove
against every new reform. He claimed that
no country of importance had granted the
franchise to women. Yet we dare say Sir
and will even be able to claim that he as-
sisted in establishing those principles in
spite of the fact they they constituted an
entirely new departure. If older nations
have not not yet adopted the women's franchise,
warmly advocated the principle. An
enlightened public opinion all over
Henry Wrixon was that with regard to the
woman ought to trust her husband to ex-
press her political views. Even supposing
there is no necessity for married women to
have votes, what is the position of the vast
multitude of single women who are strug-
gling hard to keep themselves and those
dependent upon them. The married
women may be quite willing in
most cases to trust to the discre-
tion of their husbands in regard to the
choice of representatives in Parliament, but
women who have no qualified male relative,
or what is worse, have only relatives whose
quite opposite to their own ? Another mem-
ber advanced the absurd plea that women
should not have votes for Parliament be-
cause they could not act as soldiers and
policemen. Yet there are many men who
are similarly incapable of serving in the
ranks or either the army or the police, but
reason. Parliament does not only deal
with questions affecting the army and the
administration and preservation of the law.
It deals often with question which are of
country, and if the women are incapable of
becoming soldiers and policemen, the men
are as a rule very poorly qualified to deal
the best authorities. The rejection of the
measure will occasion great disappointment,
but we dare say that the women who are

great and beneficent reform has ever been

struggle.

"BEAUTIFUL ROHILLA"— This is the title of
a new tale to be commenced in The Adverser
on Saturday. It is from the pen of Harold
Child, the author of "Driven by Fate," etc.,
etc., and will be found to be of absorbing in-

and dramatic situations , and is powerfully and
cleverly written.
PARLIAMENT.— A resolution was carried in
the Legislative Council yesterday on the
motion of Mr. Connor, affirming the desir-
ability of reserving sites of land for Govern-
ment experiemental farms where practicable,
The House decided to insist on its amendments
in the Maffra Beet Sugar Bill. The Quamba-
took to Ultima Railway Bill was read a second
time, and passed through all stages. The
debate on the second reading of the Electric
Light Bill was adjourned, and the Marriage Law
Amendment Bill was further considered in
committee. In the Legislative Assembly a
long discusion took place on Mr. McGregor's

rates of the carriage of produce be reduced.
The debate was ultimately adjourned till the

THE GOVERNMENT CHARITABLE VOTE.—
Telegraphing last night our Melbourne corres-
pondent states :— The Treasurer to-day in-
formed a deputation from the Warrambool
Hospital that he could give them no hope of
their getting anything like £1,500 for in-
creased accommodation. He had only £10,000
to distribute, and there were 58 applications.
He had had to give the charity scheme up in
despair. A sum of £500 was the very most
they could hope for, and he would not promise
that even.
THE WOMEN'S FRANCHISE BILL.— The rejec-
tion of this measure in the Legislative Council
on Tuesday night was much discussed in Ben-
Women's Franchise League as well as the large
and influential section of the male portion of
the community supporting the movement ex-
pressed their great disappointment at the re-
sult. Referring to the subject, the Herald
states that the Premier yesterday remarked :—
"I suppose we shall only have to try again. I
told the ladies who waited upon me as a depi-
tation some time ago that they would have to
turn their attention mainly to convincing the
members of the Upper House of the justice of
their cause. There were several members of
the Upper House away, and perhaps next time
the necessary 25 members may be secured to
vote for it."
THE COURTS.— The September sitting of the
Court of General Sessions was opened and con-
cluded before his honor Judge Gaunt yester-

three years' imprisonment with terms of soli-
tary confinement for stealing a bicycle from L.

three years for passing counterfeit coins and be-
ing in possession of a coining mould. For
stealing a horse from Mrs. Sieber, of Big-Hill,
J. C. Bourke was ordered to be imprisoned for
confinement. The jury found the miner,
Matthew Rodda, not guilty of the assault and
robbert on Charfles W. Eastwood at Eaglehawk,
or of the charge of receiving stolen property,
and he was therefore discharged. Thomas
mayor (Mr. A. Harkness) and Messrs. Ander-
son, Hoskins and Gibson, JsP., in sentencing

"HIS STYLE." — According to the evidence of
a widow in a case heard at the General Sessions
yesterday, one of her neighbors had a style
pecilarly his own of enjoying himself before
retiring to bed, after a night spent in de-
bauchery. "He generally sits down by the
fence and has a sleep," she said. "That's his

times its pleasing to hear him." (Loud laugh-
ter).

gower Times relates: — "Miss Helen Hart at-
and when the plate was sent round she placed
two tickets for her lecture in it, evidently in-
tending them for the Rev. R.H. Potter."
A GHOST IN HAMILTON.— The Hamilton
Spectator states: — We have read a good deal of
late of ghosts in Bendigo and other places, and
no doubt have prided ourselves that Hamilton
people were persons of substance and not
shadows, but from what we have heard it would
appear that a ghost was seen here on Friday
night, which would be a conclusive proof that
has no substance — in his upper story. The
ghost referred to was seen by a citizen, whose
veracity cannot be doubted, sitting on a fence
near the hospital, on the night mentioned. His
siting on a cence indicates that the ghost does
but that at least his anatomy was partly sub-
easy posture. We would suggest that if he is
fired at the most corporeal part, whereupon
probably the nocturnal intruder wil l "give up
the ghost."

PROGRESSION, OUR RIGHTS AND OUR RESOURCES.
BENDIGO, TUESDAY, JULY 21, 1903.
THE FEDERAL CAPITAL.
This subject is uppermost once again, and
we are assured on no less an authority than
that of the Prime Minister that the site is
to be settled this year. Emboldened by its
success in pushing the High Court Bill
through the House of Representatives, the
Government will no doubt endeavor to intro-
duce Parliament to take definite action in
regard to the establishment of the Federal
capita l— action which will involve the Com-
monwealth in initial expense by no means
trifling in character, and commit the Com-
monwealth to the expenditure of at least a
couple of millions sterling in the near future,
not to mention the many millions that will
have to be spent afterwards. Mr. Ronald
may sneer at the Kyabram movement, but
he will find that the spirit of determined re-
sistance against State extravagance will also
be manifested against Federal extravagance
when the time comes for the country to
express its opinion. The High Court, and
every other project which will have the effect
of adding to the already heavy load of taxa-
tion without conferring an advantage com-
mensurate with its cost, will be remembered
by the electors, and every member who has
assisted to pile up that load will have no
reason to complain if he be treated accord-
ing to his deserts. By the great mass of
the people the High Court is regarded merely
billets for a few of the numerous lawyers
in the Federal parliament. Like the Fede-
ral capital, the High Court is mentioned
in the constitution, but, like the Federal
capital it has not been required so far and
again, like the Federal capital, it can very
well wait till its urgency is demonstrated.
The State courts have suffered no undue
strain during the past two years in per-
forming the work which would have de-
volved upon a Federal High Court, and the
administration of Government has proceeded
so far in Melbourne as satisfactorily as it
would have done elsewhere, and with les in-
convenience to all concerned than would be
the case in say, Tumut.
The latest development in the quest for a
capital site has been not a little surprising.
At one time Albury was generally regarded
as the Federal city in embryo, and the bor-
der town metaphorically hugged itself with
delight. Then Moss Vale was spoken of as
an ideal site, only to be knocked, quite out
of the discussion by the discovery that Bom-
bala was beyond all question the one place
which met every requirement. This con-
clusion was arrived at after considerable
Paliamentary junketing with Sir William
Lyne in charge of the commissariat arrange-
ments. Now the expert Royal Commission has
presented a belated report in which Tumut is
adjudged first place. No doubt Tumut was
visible depressed when the Parliamentary
picnic party forgo to visit that obscure
township somewhere between Goodradigbee
and Wantabadgery. Unlike those more fa-
voured localities — Moss Vale, Yass, Albury,
Bombala, etc. — where empty champagne
bottles are preserved as memorials of the
reddest of red letter days in their history,
Tumut does not figure in the glowing pages
which record the triumphal progress of the
Parliamentry picnic party. But it was not
destined to "waste its sweetness on the
desert air." The expert Royal Commission
discovered it, and as against seven rival
competitors placed it first by reason of cli-
supply; second in regard to topography and
general suitablity; third in regard to ac-
cessibility, and fifth by reason of building
materials being near at hand, and the cost
of building. All this is very nice, of course,
and the glowing description of the country
in which Tumut nestles is interesting read-
ing, bt pleasant phrases will not build the
capital. The resumption of the land at Tu-
mut would cost only £25,000, according to
the showing of the commission, but the con-
struction of a branch railway line to Tumut
— for it is off the main lines — is estimated
at £50.000; a water supply could be pro-
vided for £200,000, while the cost of the
necessary buildings — allowing for the de-
velopment of a city of 50,000 inhabitants
would be £2,037,500. This would not be
spent all at once, of course. The Post
would extend over three years, would cost
£100,000, the Courts of Justice (five years)
£300,000, the Governor's residence (three
years) £75,000, and the Houses of Parlia-
ment (seven years) £700,000. More than a
be spent in the first, year, according to the
commission's proposal. In any case, it is
absolutely certain that so soon as Parlia-
ment resolves upon a site the expense will
begin. As long as the selection can be held
in abeyance, Sir William Lyne can go no
further than he has already that is the ex-
pense will be limited to the cost of an occa-
sional arliamentary picnic, for which he
has a special weakness. It would be in-
finately better for the country to permit that
ardent New South Wales politication to lead
his fellow member of Parliament once every
year into the wilderness in search of a capi-
tal site that to embark on an undertaking
which will only add to the embrarrassments
of the people without leading to better Gov-
ernment or administration. But those who
are opposed to Federal as well as State
extravagance will have to be up and doing,
for the Commonwealth Parliament which
wantonly disregards public opinion in re-
gard to the establishment of a High Court
will not be checked in its career of extrava-
gance by anything less than a pronounced
and emphatic protest by the taxpayers.
THE "BENDIGONIAN"— The Bendigo views
by Mr. F.N. Prescott in to-day's "Bendigo-
nian"; comprise photographs of Mr. Lansell's
222 mine, a Chinese sluiceman's home on the
New Churn line, and "an evening effect" on
the Big Hill, reservoir, Bendigo. A group
appears of the Victory Iron Quoit Club,
which has a good record for for the season.
There are two scenes shown of Bendigo
amateurs in the opera "Romeo and Juliet,"
and a page is-devoted to photographs of four
of the leading members of Mr. Geo. Mus-
grove's Opera Company. A couple of photo-
graphic studies complete the illustrations.
The reading matter contains the week's
news, besides the usual social letters.
COLIBAN SUPPLY.— The Malmsbury reser-
voir continues to rise steadily, the gauge
yesterday morning showing 34ft. 7 in. There
is a considerable body of water in the Upper
Coliban reservoir, but the latest gauge read-
ing is not to hand.
SUDDEN DEATH.— The death occurred sud-
denly yesterday morning of Master John
Rupert Mappin, 15 years of age, son of Mr.
Stephen Mappin, coachsmith, in the employ
of Messrs. Scholten and Marsh. The lad was
ailing from heat affection some time ago,
but it was considered that he had recovered.
On Sunday he was reading by the fireside,
and on retiring wished the remainder of the
family good night. He went to his room,
and about 5 a.m. yesterday his mother
thought she heard a noise, and proceeded
to his room, where he was found to be in a
dying state. He never spoke again, and ex-
pired soon afterwards. Dr. Gaffney gave a
certificate of death, and thus obviated the
necessity for an enquiry. The funeral will
take place at 3 o'clock to-morrow after-
noon.
HOUSEBREAKING.— A daring case of house-
breaking was perpetrated at Golden-square
in broad daylight yesterday morning about
half past 11 o'clock. Mrs. Sarah Samson, a
widow residing at Speck Gully, left her
home for about half an hour to visit a neigh-
bour, who lives a short distance away, and on
her return found that the premises had been
entered through an open window, and the
place thoroughly ransacked. On making a
search, Mrs. Samson found that the follow-
ing articles, valued at £10, had been stolen:
— Gentleman's open-faced silver watch, lady's
open-faced silver watch, gentleman's gold
ring, lady's gold ring, gentleman's gold-
mounted hair-albert,silver albert, gold-plat-
ed albert, pair of gold earrings, gold brooch,
two silver brooches, two corneliah anchor
brooches set in gold, silver locket containing
lock of hair, black cross mounted in gold,
silver thimble, one air of lady's boots, and
3½d on coppers. Mrs. Samson states that on
going towards her home after leaving her
friends she saw a man departing from the
house. She called out to him, and asked him
what he had been doing, and the man replied
that he was looking for a person named
Kelly. He then hurried away. The only
description that Mrs. Samson can give of the
man is that he was waaring brown clothes and
a brown hat.
RESUMED DUTY.— Watchman Swanwick, of
the Bendigo Fire Brigage, who has been in-
disposed for about three weeks, resumed duty
yesterday on the look out tower.
DISLOCATED ELBOW.— A boy named Patrick
Kelly, 11 years of age, was admitted to the
hospital yesterday and treated for a dislo-
cation of the left elbow. He sustained the
injury while playing in Bayne-street.
TENDER ACCEPTED.— The committee of the
Golden-square Working Men's Club has ac-
cepted the tender of H. Simmonds for the
erection of a new fence at the rear of the in-
stitute. Fifteen tenders were received.
POISONING DOGS.— Another case of dog
poisoning by throwing baits into persons'
yards is reported as having occurred recently,
when Mr. R. Gourlay, of Golden-square, lost
a valuable greyhound by this means. Mr.
Gourlay elsewhere offers a reward of £2 for
the conviction of the offender.
HARVEY FAMILY.— The Mayor desires to
acknowledge with thanks the receipt of £1/
1/ from Messrs. Henderson and Goodisson, in
aid of the Harvey family, of Pyramid Hill.
NEW MARKETS.— Yesterday the remaining
shops in the new market buildings were
taken. The City Council is, therefore, in
the satisfactory posiition of having secured
tenants for the whole of the shoos, stalls
and offices comprising the premises. The
building will be opened on the 1st August.
SUPERVISORY NEGLECT.— An employe of
the Electric Supply Co., named Nerino Mag-
gia, appeared at the City Court yesterday
public thoroughfare without enclosing it with
a protecting barrier. The evidence showed
that defendant was in charge of a number
of men constructing the tramway track to
Golden-square, and ordered the hole in quest-
tion to be sunk. It was a foot long , a foot
in depth, and 10 inches wide, and was ne-
cessary for the carrying on of the work. On
the evening of the 3rd July John Riddi-
hough, employed by Messrs. J. Andrew and
Co., was riding along High-street, when his
horse put its foot in the hole, and he was
thrown to the ground. A fine of 10/ was in-
flicted.
COLLAPSED.— The apparent total collapse of
a horse drawing a vehicle containing the
Eaglehawk mails and a number of postmen,
which occurred in the Mall yesterday after-
noon, aroused a good deal of indignation
amongt the public in that bsy thorough-
fare. The animal appeared to fall from utter
exhaution, and when it was dragged to its
feet blood was streaming from its knees, and
two sores were discernible on its off shoul-
der. Constable Tonkin had the animal
promptly removed to the vicinity of the
watchhouse, where Sergeant Glenny inspect-
ed it. The driver, Wm. Briar, a nephew of
the mail contractor, and owner of the turn-
out. Thomas Briar, of Bakewell-street
stated that the animal had fallen on its knees
several times recently. The sergeant in-
formed the driver that the horse was not in
a fit condition to work, and advised him
to procure a lotion from a chemist to dress
its woulds, and then put it in a paddock
when it might soon recover sufficiently to
be worked again. No prosecution will take
place.
PITIFUL CASE.— On Sunday Mounted-con-
stable Le Page arrested a man named John
Orwin at Reedy Creek on a charge of vag-
rancy He found the man sleeping out in a
partially dressed state, without covering of
any kind. He was dreadfully emaciated and
neglected, his clothes being a mass of rags
and filth. Though he looked fully 70 years
or age, Orwin told the police that he was
only 46 years. He was remanded by the city
bench yesterday for a week to undergo medi-
cal treatment.
MISSING WATCH.— A miner named Robt.
Lindsay, residing at- Buckley-street, has re-
chain. He states that he fell asleep in
Pall Mall, and was wakened by Constable
Currie, who arrested him for drunkenness.
Subsequently he found that his silver watch,
chain and locket, valued at £3, were miss-
ing.
LECTURE.—The apparatus which the School
of Mines some time ago ordered for the pur-
physics has just arrived, and in order to
afford the public an opportunity of under-
standing its utility, Mr. J. Sarvaas will give
a lecture entitled ''Fundamental Electrical
Experiments" in the large hall on Thursday
evening next. The lecturer will demonstrate
the nature of electricity and the first prin-
UNUSUAL CASE.— Recently Mr. William
Cowan, who holds a residence area situated
on lease 7573 , complained that residence
George Manley, of Jackson-street, Long
The complaint was lodged under section 9,
cases of dispute the district mining regis-
boundaries. Accordingly on Saturday last
Mr. H. S. V. Busst visited the locality, and
Cowan, whose residence area, situated off
Jackson-street, was clearly defined on the
lease plan, and was in no wise encroached
upon. He also found that the portion pur-
chased by Manley was included in Reeves's
could not establish his claim. On the evi-
dence he decided as follows:— "I find that
the residence areas of Robert Reeves and
George Manley do not encroach upon the
residence area of William Cowan, and I ad-
RETURN BALL.— The return ball to his
Worship the Mayor and Mrs. Curnow pro-
mises to be most successful. All arrange-
ments are in a forward state, and the va-
make the ball most enjoyable. The supper
will be laid in the new market buildings,
and arrangements are being made for the
guests to be seated all at one time. Her-
schell's Band has been engaged. The cater-
ing will be in the capable hands of Messrs.
Milburn Bros. and Mr. J. Pierce will supply
the wines, etc. The programmes are being
printed by Mr. M. J. Stapleton. Dancing
will commence at! 8.15 p.m. Tickets may
still be obtained on application to the hon.
secretary, Mr. Hemming.
MC IVOR GOLD ESCORT— Just 50 years ago
yesterday occurred what is known as the rob-
bery of the McIvor gold escort. It was a
private escort, raised by some citizens of
Melbourne, under licence from the Govern-
ment, and known in police circles as Dight's
Light Horse. It was attacked by an am-
bushed party of bushrangers between Heath-
cote ( McIvor) and Kilmore and robbed of
gold to the value of nearly £8000. The men
of the escort returned the bushrangers' fire,
but were so severely wounded that they could
not save the gold. Subsequently five of the
robbers were arrested — the ringleader by a
cadet named Simmonds — one committed sui-
cide, and the others were executed. As a
matter of historical detail, the Government
escart (sic) proper in Victoria, whether of military
or constabulary, was (says the "herald")
POOR BOX.— Sergeant Glenny aoknow-
ledges the receipt of 10/6 from Mr. Wm.
MEAN THEFT.— The Golden-square police
are at present making inquiries into what
appears to be a contemptible theft on the
part of some person, who, after the death
of an old man named John Hansard, which
occurred in the Bendigo Hospital recently,
carted away his little home and its contents.
The police have been successful in obtaining
some information as to the whereabouts of
a Bible, a number of small books, and a
quantity of chattels. It is probable that a
prosecution will be instituted against the per-
son suspected.
LAND TAXATION.— Last evening a meeting
of the newly-formed Unimproved Land
Values Taxation League was held, when
there was a very fair attendance, Mr. W. H.
Thompson occupying the chair. A strong
committee was formed, consisting of a pre-
sident, two vice-presidents, two secretaries,
a treasurer and 20 ordinary members, for
the purpose of vigorously carrying on the
work of the league. Considerable interest
was taken in the meeting, and the enthu-
siasm shown indicates that the campaign
will shortly be an active one.
INSULTING BEHAVIOUR.— James Liddle and
Geo. Greene, both respectable-looking young
men, were charged at the City Court yester-
day with behaving in an insulting manner
in Mitchell-street on Sunday night. Greene
pleaded guilty, but Liddle stated that he did
not contribute in any way to the assault.
Constable Currie stated that he was on duty
in Mitchell-street, and arrested the accused
for fighting. Liddle, however, stated that
he was conversing with a friend when Greene
came up and started to talk about fighting.
Turning to one of those present, he said,
"Hold my hat, and I'll have a go at him."
He then struck Liddle, who fell in the mud,
and the constable came up and arrested both
of them. The P.M. said it was strange that
none of the witnesses' who were about had
been called. Mr. Ni Gan, who appeared for
Liddle, said that his client had been in
gaol all night, and could not get his wit-
nesses. He asked for an adjournment, for
the purpose of securing the presence of the
witnesses. The P.M. granted an adjourn-
ment for a week, and allowed the prisoner
out on his own recognisance of £10. Greene
was fined £1, the bench remarking that he
was being lightly treated.
MILITARY.— This evening a parade of the
Fifth Battalion will be held, and the com-
pany officers will continue their lectures.
Subsequently the annual meeting of the
Battalion Rifle Club will take place.
TEMPERANCE ENTERTAINMENT.— A grand
temperance entertainment arranged by the
No. 1 Evangelistic Band, will be held in the
Temperance Hall, View-street, to-night.
Selections will be rendered by Mr. E. H.
Leggo's united open-air choir, and numerous
other musical items will be given. A col-
lection will be taken up during the entertain-
ment.
BAND SOCIAL.— A social and dance were
held in the Oddfellows' Hall, Long Gully,
last evening in aid of the funds of the Hope-
toun Brass Band. The gathering was ar-
ranged by the married lady friends of mem-
bers of the band, and was a great success.
There were about 50 couples present, and
dancing was carried on till a late hour, to
the strains of music provided by Messrs.
Bowden, Baker, and Holmes. During an
on behalf of Sergeant Major Whitehead,
with a large framed group photo. of the
members, An excellent supper was provid-
ed by the ladies, and altogether a most en-
joyable evening was spent.
WOMAN'S WEAKNESS.— Two classes of
women are frequently seen in the City Court.
The one is induced to speak only by persua-
sion, and the other cannot be kept silent ex-
cept by threats of punishmment. A woman,
who came within the latter category, was a
witness in a case at the City Court yester-
day. She was an Assyrian, and spoke in the
Arabic tongue. While one of her country-
men was in the box she rattled off advice as
to what he should say with that indifference
to the law's formaility, born of the want of
knowledge of court procedure. The court
heard her on the first occasion in astonished
silence. Next she was admonished, and final-
ly the P .M. threatened her with imprison-
ment. A moment later her native tongue
again rang out, and this time the court re-
laxed its sterness, and smiled at the woman,
who complacently explained that she was
only helping the witness to understand the
questions. Fortunately, the witness's ex-
amination was brief otherwise the court, in
order to maintain its dignity, would pro-
bably have been compelled to commit the wo-
man for contempt of court.
LITERARY SOCIETY.— Last evening the
Women's Literary Society held its usual
meeting in the Masonic Hall. The presi-
dent (Mrs. F. Bush) was in the chair, and
there was a goodly number of ladies present.
Mrs. Eddy read a paper on Goldsmith's
works, and it created an interesting and in-
structive discussion. The members subse-
quently gave readings from the prose and
poetic works of that author.
CITY COURT.— Messrs. E .N. Moore,
P.M., W. Wilson, J .W. Faul, W. Beebe and
A.P. Miller, JsP., presided yesterday.
Isaac Moore, employed by a woodcarter was
charged by Constable Coman with using a
horse under circumstances involving cruelty
on the 10th inst. The evidence showed that
the animal had large sores on its shoulders
and back. The accused said the horse
was already harnessed when he went to his em-
pliyer's yard for it. The employer in ques-
tion said that the horse was used through a
misunderstanding. The fine of 20/ was inflicted
the employer paying the amount. Leonard
Giles, William Pierce, William Hoy, and
Claude Harry were each fined 2/6 for driving
a dray not bearing the owner's name. Wil-
liam Riddihough was charged with negli-
gently driving a horse and dray in Barnar-
street. Constable Carrie said defendant al-
lowed the horse and vehicle to go on
the wrong side of the road, with the result
that the wheel of the dray knocked over a
perambulator containing a child. A fine
of 10/ was inflicted. For having no name on
the vehicle, defendant was fined 2/6. Wil-
liam Walters, Samuel Johns, Joseph Swin-
burne, William Akehurst, William Eadie,
William Liddle, Samuel Jones, Frank Tren-
car, and Henry Dable were each fin 5/ for
riding bisycles on the footpath. Other cases
elsewhere reported, were dealt with, and the
court adjourned.
PROPERTY SALES.— Messrs. Ernest R.
Jones and Co. report having sold on account
Mrs. McLean, a six-roomed w.b. house and
half-acre of freehold land, situtated in David-
street, to Mr. Paxton; and on account of
Mr. Mann, a three roomed house, and two
acres of land, situated at Holdsworth road,
to Mr. Ingham. Satisfactory prices were
PUBLICAN'S BOOTH.— Mr. M. Kelly was the
successful tenderer at £15 for the publican's
booth at the winter meeting of the Marong
Jockey Club on 29th inst.
