HBH July 3 1888 GOODE Timaru

It is to be hoped that some member of the House will ask the Government a question about the case of G COODE, whose sentence of seven days’ hard labor at Timaru is reported in our Telegraphic news.

Judging by the brief report of the case no dishonesty whatever was proved, and he appears to have been treated as a felon for an act of carelessness.

ECCLES and HOLDEN

The Rev J C ECCLES is again very will. I should think what he requires is a change from here to a warmer climate.

There was a serious accident at the native village yesterday.

A half-caste boy named HOLDEN, about eight years of age, while riding the racehorse Brown Duke, was thrown violently.

Blood came from his ears, and he was picked up unconscious.

Upon enquiry at the Pa last night he was report to be still unconscious and much convulsed. Concussion of the brain is feared. Dr MIRBACH was promptly in attendance after the accident.

HBH July 4 1888 Honi KERE or John KELLY

Honi KERE, a Maori witness in a civil case yesterday, was called by and answered to his English name of John KELLY.

When in the witness box he desired an interpreter, judging by his gestures, but Mr CULLEN said to the latter officer, “Leave him to me, he speaks good English.” Mr CULLEN then proceeded to administer the oath, but the dusky witness was in an intense state of “no savee,” and repeated some Maori words. After the words of the oath were again repeated and he again “failed to understand,” his Worship addressing the witness said, “It’s no use, you will have no interpreter; you can speak perfect English and will give your evidence in English.” The witness smiled broadly and said “Very well, sir,” took the oath flying, and gave his evidence in fluent English.

Court

Some time ago the marital troubles of a couple named GILLIES occupied the Resident Magistrate’s Court, and an order was made out that the husband should contribute 7s 6d towards the support of one of the children left with his wife. Yesterday on the information of Sarah HALL, mother of defendant’s wife, the husband was charged with disobeying the order. He did not appear. After hearing the evident Captain PREECE imposed a fine of £1 and costs, with solicitor’s fees 10s 6d, in default of payment 21 days’ hard labor. Mr MOORE appeared in support of the information.

Mr RYAN, one of the witnesses for Mr BROUGHTON in the will case now being heard at Wellington, has returned to Napier.

Some years ago Mr J A SMITH believed that he had discovered a bed of mud oysters close to Napier, and we think he had a dredger made, for for some reason the supposed discovery was never tested. The rumor is now revived on what appears strong evidence.

A man named Richard BURKE contributed 12s to the revenue this morning for drinking to excess.

Poverty Bay Herald reported a very important application under the Bankruptcy Act-Mr BRIGHT of the Loan and Mercantile Agency Company, Mr MACDONALD and others applied for an order of the Court to enable them to prove their debts in the bankrupt estate of one S R STEWART, although the four months allowed had passed. Mr CHRISP opposed on behalf of Messrs GRAHAM, PITT and BENNETT. After argument the order was granted. Application was made by the Official Assignee for an order against a person residing in England to pay certain moneys to the Assignee in Gisborne in the estate of F J THOMPSON. Mr FINN opposed for John OLDING, who claimed the sum for which the application was made by virtue of a deed of trust executed by the bankrupt before his bankruptcy as provision for his wife and family.

Order was refused, the Registrar considering the Court had no jurisdiction to make an order against a person residing in England, who had not been served with a process of the Court.

DEATH

EAST at Napier on the 15th of July, Hedley, third son of John EAST, aged 8 years.

The funeral will leave the Shakespeare Hotel at 3 o’clock this (Monday) afternoon.

Friends please accept this intimation.

Received from Mr BADER at Havelock, a sample of silage made in a press constructed by Mr BADER himself. The silage is not so moist as some specimens we have seen, but it is sound and fragrant, and is eaten greedily by the horses.

Our special reporter wires that in his report of Friday’s evidence in the case of BROUGHTON V Airini TONORE and others, he omitted to state that Archdeacon WILLIAMS replying to Mr BELL, said it was true he had stated that in his opinion Mr DONNELLY was above suspicion in the matter of the will.

Sergeant CULLEN and Detective GRACE made a smart seizure of various kinds of intoxicating liquors on Saturday night, at a professed cigar shop in Emerson street, near the Working Men’s Club.

Mr J STEPHENS left for Dunedin on Saturday by the Rotomahana to enter upon his duties at the head office of the National Bank.

A young lady, who has had a remarkable scholastic experience, is now staying with her friends at the Masonic Hotel.

Her name is Miss J PROSSER.

At ten years of age she won a half scholarship valued at £20;

At eleven she was third in a scholastic examination and won £40;

At twelve she was first in a similar examination, and won £80;

At fourteen she won another first, valued at £80, and at eighteen years of age she was second in a University examination, and received £45 a year for three years.

These sums make in all £355, not at all a bad total.

It may also be mentioned that she had £5 worth of books prior to her tenth year in various examinations.

A shocking accident occurred at about noon yesterday, by which a lad named Hedley EAST, son the well-known carpenter of that name, lost his life.

The unfortunate lad, who was eight years of age, was walking on top of Bluff Hill with his sister, an older brother, and another boy named FRASER. They were on the highest point of the bluff, overlooking that portion of the harbor works where the wrecked punt lies on the rocks, and deceased went close to the edge.

This alarmed his brother, who called for deceased to come back.

As he appeared in the act of turning to retrace his steps, when he stumbled and fell headlong over the cliff.

He struck against several projections as he fell, finally pitching upon a kind of jutting ledge about 200 fell or thereabouts from the top, and some 50 feet from the beach.

The news of the accident quickly spread, and deceased’s father and many other persons were soon on the beach, endeavouring to reach the ledge where the lad was lying.

At last Mr EAST by dint of immense exertion and at great peril top himself, gained the ledge and recovered the body.

To carry it to the ladder by clambering down the precipitous cliff was even more dangerous,, but this was accomplished at last, and the melancholy burden taken down to the beach.

There was no sign of life in the body when found, the head and face being much injured, and the neck broken.

Constables HARVEY and SHANNAHAN removed the body to the Shakespeare Hotel, where an inquest will be held this morning.
The result of the Julien electric tram motor in Sydney on June 1 seems to have been highly satisfactory.

The car used seated 50 persons. The motive power is stored in lockers, situated underneath the seats, and access is gained to these by hinged panels over the wheels.

One charging of the car is sufficient for 80 miles or seven hours actual running, and a similar time is occupied in storing a fresh supply of electricity.

The storage of electricity is accomplished in a shed in which are employed at ten horse boiler and engine and one of the Elwell-Parker dynamos…………………….more

Then-

Manual labor is used in connection with the recharging of the cells, and to the English estimate of 6d per tram mile would have to be added the difference in the value of labor as between England and New South Wales.

This morning a night watchman discovered the upper portion of the business premises of Mr P F COLLEDGE to be on fire. By the appearance of the building at this stage it is fair to conclude that fire must have been smouldering for some time unobserved.

When first seen it was at the back corner of Messrs WILLIAMS and Son’s premises. The alarm was raised, and it was not until Mr W MILLER arrived that anything like an organised attack upon the fire was made.

Fireman WHITE was the first fireman of the brigade to put in an appearance except Fireman ROBSON and YUILL, the former night watchman and the latter station-keeper.

Some of the delay when valuable minutes were lost due to a plug nears the Criterion Hotel being covered with mud.

Constable GANTLEY broke open the shop and several townspeople began to carry out goods.

Mr Mc VAY, will be able to give an eye-witness’s account of the affair to the Council, and was in great trepidation when the wind blowing and no water available.

Shortly after Mr NAPHTALL’s shop caught fire a jet of water was brought to bear.

Mr BROPHY got the high and medium pressure turned on. Finding that the steamer was not being used the writer of this account ran round to the fire station and found Fireman ROBSON busily engaged in getting out what further hose could be found.

Finally another shop owned by Mr GOODWIN, pork butcher was also threatened with fire which was bidding to sweep away the whole block.

The manual engine was got to work with a crew of volunteers, and Superintendent WATERWORTH, who had arrived on the scene some minutes before, ordered Branchman YUILL on to the roof of Mr GIBBON’s shop with the hose from the manual.

Mrs YUILL notified the fire brigade and by this time three buildings were in a blaze, with the flames looking as though they would soon eat through to Messrs COOPER’s and Mc VAY’s, a trip to the steamer standing with lighted furnace at NEWTON’s well was made by the writer.

Her husband had found her in the Chinese camp, and a doctor had informed the husband, that one at least of the children of the wife was by an Asiatic father.

For the co-respondent it was contended that:

Mc QUEEN had connived at the adultery, and had lived on the proceeds of his wife’s misconduct until he found a solvent co-respondent likely to pay damages. The jury found that the co-respondent was guilty of adultery, but that the prisoner had condoned it. The petition was dismissed with costs.

William TUREI is aged 26 years. He is possessed of a violent and ungovernable temper, and has frequently ill-used his wife, besides on several occasions threatened to kill her.

His wife May TUREI was 23 years old. She was a tidy and industrious woman. The marriage was forced upon her, as she was inclined to another man.

TUREI in his fits of rage used to cast up this former attachment of his wife, and on one occasion threw her into the fire.

A week ago TUREI’s father, because of his (the son’s) curious treatment, told him he must leave the place, whereupon William TUREI threatened to kill his father.

On Friday last William TUREI and his wife left their whare to go to a plantation, the husband carrying a child.

The woman seeing him load his gun before leaving, asked him what he was going to do. He replied to shoot pheasants.

Later on a report of a gun was heard, and on search being made the body of the unfortunate woman was found in the scrub, the head cleft in twain, one side being a mass of bruises and almost beaten to a pulp.

The murderer was traced to the ranges, but nothing has been seen or heard of him since. The Maoris are very bitter against the murderer.

Rugby battle

The scourge of retrenchment has been pitilessly applied to the unfortunate civil servants of late, that it was feared the poor things might do something desperate in their impoverished and despairing state.

The worst anticipations were realised on Saturday, when a number of civil servants met together and attacked the local banks.

The offenders were several misguided youths named JEFFARES, ROSS, PERCY, KNIGHT, KELLY, STRACHAN, PATTERSON, NELSON, HERD, LINDSAY, WYATT, STUBBS, TURNER, FRASER and HANNON.

Intimation of the intended attack had been received at the leading financial establishments, and the legal fraternity, responding to the call of capital, the following devoted body of defenders assembled at the Recreation Ground at 3 o’clock on Saturday.

Messrs LOGAN, TODD, HARDEN, SMITH, GIBBONS, BENNETT, J GOODALL, STANTON, PEACOCK, SYMONDS, HUTCVHINSON, BUCHOLZ, ROCHFORT, SKEET and S R KENNEDY.

To avoid the penalties of the Police Offences Act the battle raged under what are known as Rugby Rules, and during the fight a great many bankers and lawyers showed conspicuous valor, most promising among them being KENNEDY, LOGAN Kicked with judgment and effect; HARDEN assaulted the goal repeatedly. SMITH stopped the wild charges frequently and GIBBONS frustrated, while TODD distinguished himself; BENNETT assisted his friends unselfishly and HUTCHINSON and SYMONDS also did well.

The Civil servants struggled bravely, but lack of nourishment and mental uneasiness had told on their systems. PATTERSON was valorous; JEFFARES was equally plucky, and LINDSAY and KNIGHT also prominent.

The victory was finally secured by STANTON invading the opposite stronghold and scoring one point.

The late Mr Henry ANDERSON, the well-known Wellington journalist, leaves a widow and seven daughters. His life was insured for £500 in the government Office.

Poroti, the place where the Maori disturbances have just taken place, is situated some eight or ten miles in a southwesterly direction from Whangarei.

It is a very pretty district, and contains some of the finest soil in the whole of North Auckland.

There is a small township there, and some half a dozen stores and a school-house.

There are about thirty Europeans living in the township or its immediate vicinity.

There was some considerable excitement caused in the same district six or seven years ago over a similar dispute with a survey party, and the Maoris threatened to arm themselves and protect their land, the dispute being that the Wangarei County Council were about to lay off a road which would cut off a small portion of land belonging to one of the natives, who raised a strong objection of having his land disturbed without an exorbitant payment being made for it.

The settlers in the district were greatly alarmed at the time, and preparations were at once made for putting Wangarei into a state of defence.

But, fortunately, owing to the tact and thorough knowledge of Maori usages possessed by Mr J C CLENDON, the Resident Magistrate, the whole affair was satisfactorily settled in a peaceable manner.

A report was current in town last night that Mrs FITZGERALD, the female defendant in the recent sly grog selling case, had poisoned herself.

Mrs FIZGERALD was taken ill very suddenly, and FITZGERALD, the male defendant, rushed into the shop next door, kept by Mr PATTERSON, who is deaf and dumb, and wrote on a slate asking Mr PATTERSON to run for a doctor.

Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Statement made by Inspector KIELY that Mr VILLERS, of Petane, having for some time missed chaff from his premises, communicated with the police. A watch was kept, and at 4 o’clock on the morning of Sunday last a man named Alfred NICHOLLS was seen by Detective GRACE to take away three bags of chaff in a wheelbarrow. He then went around to the house where Nicholls lived and arrested him. Accused pleaded it was his first offence and asked to be treated leniently on the ground that he had a wife and three children dependant upon him. His Worship said he would take into account what accused had urged and would deal leniently with him, but only a term of imprisonment would meet the case. Accused would therefore be sentenced to 14 days hard labor

Later-

A man named NICHOLLS got a lenient sentence at the Court yesterday for stealing three bags of chaff, but he would have escaped punishment if his dishonesty had been more scientific. He should have bought the chaff, and anything else he desire and failed to pay. A dividend of nopence in the pound will cover a multitude of sins.

The Garrison Band and corps paraded in review order last evening for government inspection and drill. There was a good muster, Captain WOOD in command.

She intended to take a dose of carbonate of magnesia, which was kept in a bottle that stood near another bottle, which contained sulphate of zinc. A full teaspoonful of the latter drug was taken, and as this, although poisonous, is a strong emetic, the results can be imagined.

Mr J B GODWIN, the pork butcher who was burned out by the recent fire, and who unfortunately for himself, not insured, has determined to imitate the fabled Phoenix to a certain extent and to rise, not from his own ashes, but from those of sundry items of pork and a variety of small goods. He will reopen as a pork butcher in a few days in the shop recently occupied by Mr S J THOMPSON, in Hastings Street.
Mr RAVEN of the Waitangi Brewery, has burnished us with samples of his brewing, and we have submitted them to competent judges.

First there is bottled ale, which is pronounced as an excellent gable beer. It is not so heavy or “hoppy” as English beer, but is beautifully clear, with a fine “head,” and we believe it would prove equally good as a pleasant tonic. Next the horehound beer came under review, and the verdict of this that no better is made. Thirdly, there is stout, which is also a capital example, and though not equal to Guinness’s the fact that both it and the beer sold at less than half the price of the imported articles should ensure an extended sale.

Mr RAVEN boasts that he used no glucose in his brewery, the only materials employed being hops, malt, a little sugar, and water.

Mr David BLAIR, about the best qualified man in the colony for such a design, will commence on Thursday, at the Athenaeum, a special course of instruction in hand railing.

Waipawa Correspondent writes under yesterday’s date: -

The doings of two old colonial favourites are thus commented upon by a Sydney paper:-

“Miss Emilie MELVILLE, once the idol of the Australian public, and Signor VERDI are playing to empty benches in some of the obscure country town of Victoria.

VERDI was also a star of the first magnitude a few years ago.”

Professor Elisha GRAY, of Highland Park, Illinois, by the invention of the new apparatus to which he had given the name of the tetauograph, has gone a long way towards displacing the telephone. By means of this instrument a person may sit down in his office, take a pencil in his hand, write a message, and as the pencil moves, a pencil in his correspondent’s office will move simultaneously and form the same letters and words in the same way………………………more

Then the two pencils move synchronously, and it is stated to be just as easy to work the circuit 10 miles or 500 miles.

Patrick CORBETT had to interview Dr PRESTON on Saturday. The doctor sat at the Magistrate’s Court to hear about Patrick’s symptoms, and at the conclusion of the diagnosis Patrick was told to go away and not get drunk any more.

Marriage

DIXON-HARGRAVE- On Monday 30th July, at St MARK’S Church Clive, by the

Rev H Mc LEAN, Ernest R DIXON of Pourerere, to Ada C HARGRAVE,

daughter of the late W F HARGRAVE, Esq., formerly of Waimarama.

Ormondville correspondent under yesterday’s date: -

A man named James HARWOOD, who is employed at the Hawke’s Bay Timber Company’s Sawmills in the Rakiatai bush, was the victim of a very painful accident on Friday morning, when it appears he lost his balance, and in putting out his hands to save himself from falling, the thumb of his right hand was caught between the two pinions of the feed gear of the flitching bench, and was completely crushed up-.

The effect being much the same as if his thumb had passed through a sausage machine. He went down to the hospital by the morning train to undergo amputation.

The wreck of the Suva was purchased for £151. The cargo &c., fetched a few pounds more.

Herald Office-Monday evening

Messrs NELSON Bros Limited have received a cable from their London house, date the 28th July, to the following effect:

“New Zealand mutton, market price averages 5 1/2d per lb.”

Here is an example of the frauds perpetrated under the Metropolitan Board of Works, which a Royal Commission is now bringing to light: -

Mr VILLERS, proprietor of the Pavilion Music Hall, stated that when Mr GODDARD told him (Mr VILLERS) that Mr GODDARD “expected something.” It was arranged that they were to offer him £50 a quarter, or £200 per annum, and Mr DUNCH reported that he had paid him the first £50. An annuity of £200 a year is something like a bribe. More significant still is a sentence in a letter written by Mr GODDARD referring, apparently to this little transaction. “I shall swear,” says this remarkable person, “I never had a penny; nor more I have actually, for the money £225-was divided among my family.”
