Thursday Blenheim A man named Michael DONONAN was brought into town today from Waiirau Valley with his throat badly gashed and his windpipe partly severed. He had been drinking heavily, and it is believed he is suffering from delirium tremens. He disappeared on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday morning went to an accommodation house in a fearful plight. From the jagged appearance of his wounds he had apparently tried to cut his throat on a barbed wire fence. It is expected that he will recover.

Death –WOOD

Birth-WOOD

Inquest-WOOD

I have heard of a sad death in child-bed at Hampden, which occurred on Wednesday morning. A Mrs Sarah WOOD, living at some distance from neighbours, gave birth to twins, one still-born, about 3 am. Her husband wanted to go for assistance, but at the earnest request of his wife, who did not like to be left, refrained. The poor woman, however, began to get worse, and at 9 o’clock her son, a lad, was despatched by his father for assistance, the latter remaining with his wife at her repeatedly expressed wish. Before any assistance could reach the unfortunate woman’s residence she sank and died. An inquest was held the following day at Hampden, before Dr TODD, when the jury returned a verdict of “Death in child-bed.” A rider was added, exonerating the husband from all blame.

A considerable block of land, extending all round Makatoku, is gazetted as Crown land, and can therefore be dealt with by the Land Board. It would be well if the land were cut up, and sold as soon as possible. It would now meet with ready sale, and a permanent settlement might be made at Makatoku, but if the Board waits until the line is carried through to Tahoraite the land will be practically unsaleable, and Makatoku will be all but deserted.

All other licenses in the district have been renewed.

(Typed completely as written in paper)

Judgment was given yesterday in a remarkable case before the Registrar of the Supreme Court, acting for the Judge. In the beginning of May last Arthur CLAYDEN, late immigration agent, sold to James PARK, surveyor, a house and land mortgaged for £200. PARK’s statement was that he purchased simply for the price of the mortgage, which was to be transferred, the land being under the Land Transfer Act. A transfer was prepared and signed, and explained to the parties. Ten days later CLAYDEN demanded payment of £200, explaining that his intention had been to sell for £400, half cash, and not for the amount of the mortgage, but as there was a mistake he offered to take back the property. PARK refused to re-transfer, and CLAYDEN then commenced proceedings under sections 140 and 141 of the Land Transfer Act, claiming to have the transfer annulled. The evidence as to the value of the property was conflicting. For PARK the evidence was that in comparison with the price paid for adjoining property £200 was a fair price, while for CLAYDEN evidence was given to its being worth £400. It was not alleged that PARK had acted otherwise than in good faith. CLAYDEN said he was so fully impressed with the conviction that the monetary consideration was to be £200 (besides the mortgage) that he paid no attention to the terms of the transfer, in which the consideration was stated to be 10s. When the sum was mentioned to him he imagined it to be a fee that PARK had to pay. The evidence and legal arguments were voluminous. The Registrar decided that neither party understood the other, and that as neither consented to the same thing there was no contract. It was not the case for rectification of contract, but for the cancellation of the same. The position of the parties had not been so altered with respect to the land as to preclude their being replaced in their former position. As there had been no dealings with the land, and CLAYDEN had sought redress speedily, the transfer would be set aside and its registration cancelled. In consequence of CLAYDEN’S carelessness the Registrar ordered him to pay the costs of the summons and the transfer.

A good many miners are flocking there from Rimu and Kumera.

Christchurch-Sunday

This morning a fire broke out in the premises of Mr Thomas JACOBS, linen-draper, Colombo street, near Cathedral square. It rapidly spread to Fountain BARBERS bookseller’s shop, on the south side, and to STEWART’s fruiterer’s shop on the north, also to GLASSON’S small hairdresser’s shop in Cathedral square. There was some delay getting the fire engines to work, but as the buildings were of wood and old they could scarcely be saved. The premises were under a long lease to Frederick HOBBS, the occupants being his sub-tenants. The upper portion of fountain BARBER’s place was occupied by the Young Mens’ Christian Association; no one lived on the premises.

BARBER is insured for $300 in the London, Liverpool, and Globe; he estimates his loss at $1000. GLASSON is insured for $80 on the Australian Mercantile Union; he estimates his loss at $100; STEWART is uninsured; he estimates his loss at $50.

It is stated that an attempt to burn a cottage on SCOTT’s road was made on Friday night. Mr SIMMONS and wife and six children were in bed, when Mrs SIMMONS heard the crackling of weather boards. The fire was extinguished with the help of some neighbours around, who saw that the weatherboards had been saturated with kerosene. The house is insured for $150 in the National and Union. SIMMON’s furniture is uninsured.

In accordance with the new instructions lately issued, the Union Steamship Company’s steamers leaving here on Saturdays will only call at Gisborne every alternated week. The Tarawera, due here from the south next Saturday, will proceed direct to Auckland.

There are many funny ways to make advertisement “catch the eye,” but the following “wanted,” which we extract from the Thames Advertiser, deserves special notice:- “Wanted-A good ‘all round’ girl with a backbone, neither square, angular, or limp. No ladies need apply to Mrs P E CHEAL, Parawai.”

Parihaka was a “bloodless victory,” but it has since cost at least one life, Mr C S MOGRIDGE, of the Telegraph Department, who died on Saturday night, was one of the Volunteers at Parihaka, and lying in a tent he caught a severe cold, which settled on his chest, and ultimately caused his death.

Thirteen rooms, in some which “South Kensington” wall paper appears in amicable rivalry with our native woods. Mantelpiece of honeysucke and rimu with judicious combination. Mr D McLEOD is building shop next to Mr FOREMAN’s for the New Zealand Clothing Factory. Close to the railway station a two roomed building is being constructed by Mr TONG for Mr GENERAL. The larger room being sacred to billiards, smaller one being a polling place, i.e. a hair dressing saloon.

Hooray more hair dressing. A saloon is being built by Mr COOKE, nearly opposite the church, for Mr JACOBI.

I had thought of writing a Hastings Directory, but find I can’t as the names of the streets are not up yet. Suffice to say that houses are springing up like mushrooms in all directions, that notwithstanding the demands we are making upon it the bush holds out nobly, and that two and a half inch nails are still to be had.

A peculuar accident happened at Makaretu on Wednesday. A little boy named PERSEN, about three years of age, was playing with a billhook in the yard attached to his parent’s house, and was amusing himself in his infantile way by prodigious chops at a log. This boy’s smaller brother, aged 17 months, observing his youthful woodman at work, crawled out of the house unobserved to play with him. Just as he reached the log, and in attempting to pull himself on to his feet, he stumbled and fell, just as the bill hook, wielded by his brother, descended. The unlucky stroke severed three of his little fingers, close to the palm, one finger dropping clean off, and the other two hanging by a shred of skin. The cries of the pair of infants soon brought the mother out, who staunched the flow of the blood as well as she was able, and the child was brought down to Waipawa to Dr MIRBACH. The latter was obliged to take off one of the fingers, just attached by a piece of skin, but bound up the other hand in splints, and has, I am told, strong hopes of saving it.
