HBH Sept 15 1888 Fancy Dress

The Annual football fancy dress ball, which was this year given in honor of the Wellington football team, took place at the Naval drill-shed last night. As we all know the Wellington Rugby team has already departed by train, much to the dismay of a number of ladies who were in danger of swooning.

The following is a list of those who were in fancy dress, taken from the tickets of admission, It is not, however, a full list, as by far the majority of those who were in character-costumes omitted to name the characters upon their cards. There were in addition a much larger number of ladies in very handsome evening dresses: -

Mrs BEAR, STURROCK, APLIN, Mrs GOODALL, Mrs HAMLIN,

Miss R BELL, F BELL, MILLER, LAMB,, JAGO, KRAEFT, BENDALL, K HITCHINGS, U HITCHINGS, NIEDERHAUSEN, M CAMPBELL, GOODALL, A D CAMPBELL, GIFFORD, Leila MILLER, Agnes MILLER, ROBOTTOM

Misses WHITE

Misters: - WILLIAMSON, POPPELWELL, FLEMING, W GOODALL, PROVIS, J GOODALL, CORBETT, P WILLIAMS, HESLIM, BLACK, S LYNDON, SMITH, TROTTER, Mc KAY, J H SMITH.

There will be a swimming match this evening at the white Swan baths between Edward MORTON and David FRASER, the former hailing from Oamaru and the latter from Dunedin.

The stake is £5 a side, the proprietor of the baths being the stakeholder.


The second number of LIGHT, THE NEW Australasian exponent of art, literature, and science, is a great improvement on the first in every respect, and is full of interesting matter. It is modelled on the lines of KNOWLEDGE. It is worthy to be placed with that popular periodical. Mr J W CRAIGI is the Napier agent.

Application to Transfer license to occupy land by deferred payments

WOODHALL Alice US to ENGLAND

A WOMAN’S WIT

Alice WOODHILL. Who was recently arrested at BROMWICH and taken on an extradition warrant to the UNITED STATES by Inspector TURNBRIDGE, of SCOTLAND Yard, is now back again in ENGLAND.

She managed to get out of NEW YORK in a very clever manner without exciting suspicions of the detectives who were shadowing her. Judge GILDERSLEEVE dismissed the charge against her of forging John GILL’S name to the transfer of the United States bonds, but there was another charge against her.

She therefore disguised herself in a mourning costume, with blue spectacles, and took a train to MONTREAL. There she put up at an out of the way hotel, and at night boarded a rug which runs down the St LAWRENCE River and connects at QUEBEC with the ALLEN Line steamer for GLASGOW.

To make sure of eluding the detectives she engaged a woman to dress in the clothing she had wore to Court.

This woman went to PHILADELPHIA, and purchased a ticket to ENGLAND; and the detectives, while watching this fictitious Alice, allowed Mrs Simon Pure to get safely away.

On a Monday evening at a late hour Alice arrived at her Mother’s home in WEDNESBURY, from AMERICA, and a crowd of friends were ready to welcome her. On Tuesday her father’s house was decorated with flags, and in the evening bands were playing, and bells ringing and feet dancing. Colored lights and fireworks were burned in profusion from the housetop.

***Note-Abridged by Elaine and is available upon request

Mr R S SMYTHE, the much travelled manager, who since he was here last year with the Mikado Opera Company has added South America to his itinerary, arrived from Auckland on Saturday on his way to Wellington to meet Miss Von FINKELSTEIN, who will commence her New Zealand tour there on the 24th instant.

On calling at the Herald office to see the latest intelligence the first item that met the old journalist's eye was the New York cablegram announcing the death of Mr R A PROCTER, whose colonial tour was under his management.

Mr SMYTHE informs us that when he was in England last autumn he received a letter from his old friend, informing him of the death of his two sons from typhus fever.
Mr PROCTER, whose first visit to the colonies was prompted by a desire for change after the death of his wife, asked whether the time was ripe for another Australian tour.

He lunched with Mr Archibald FORBES at his house in Regent's Park on the day when he sailed for America, whence we have since learned that the "old war-horse" is a helpless invalid.

Mr SMYTHE fears that Mr H M STANLEY "the man who found Livingstone" will never be able to fulfil his contract to make a lecturing tour through Australia.

A recent issue of the Lyttelton Times publishes the following in relation to the late alleged perjury case: -

"At the Napier R.M. Court on Monday the case of alleged perjury against
Mr F D LUCKIE, Secretary of the Hawke's Bay Jockey Club, brought by his clerk,
B C WARE was dismissed without the defence being called on. A good deal of sympathy with Mr LUCKIE was expressed by trainers and others about Riccarton, there being a very general agreement that the Hawke's Bay official is on e of the most capable secretaries in the colony."

Mr F WILLIAMS, of Alexandra South, writes to the DUNSTAN TIMES under date August 30th as follows: -

“By today’s mail I have received advices from New South Wales re the working of the ‘Wolseley machine shears’ in the first shed to start with them in that colony viz. the Dunlop station, Darling River, where some 250,000 sheep are to be shorn. This shed is fitted with 42 machine shears, and which had when my advices left been working three weeks; up to that date the highest individual tally was 132 in wether hoggets-the average of the whole being 90. This shows an improvement on the first week’s work, the best tallies then ranging from 102 to 123. Mr James WILSON, one of the proprietors, has written to the W.S.S.M Co, stating that the ‘general working of the machines has exceeded his most sanguine expectations.’ I venture to ask you to insert this letter as a matter of great interest to your pastoral readers.”

The consecration of the piece of ground given by Mr Joseph BURNS to the Catholic community of this district, upon which was given to erect a church, was solemnly gone through today by Dr GRIMES, Bishop of Christchurch, in the presence of about 70 persons.

A very pleasing aspect of the ceremony was the chanting by the children, which showed that they had been well trained.

It was stated that the man had come down from CROMWELL with a letter from the Resident Magistrate.

A young man named Henry D PLANTE was killed on the ROSLYN cable tram this evening. He was taken to the hospital and died shortly afterwards. The young man was a compositor in the WITNESS office. His parents are believed to be in TIMARU.

It appears that the parents of the young man PLANTE who was killed on the tramway line are dead. It is his uncle who is in TIMARU. From further information it appears that PLANTE was caught by a gust of wind just as he was emerging from the cutting, and before he could recover himself he was blown on to the line and struck by the car. He had been walking alongside the line, not on it.

FROZEN MEAT

Sir,-The name of the new freezing company in Napier having been mentioned in a letter appearing in your issue of the 21st inst., I would wish, to prevent misapprehension, to state that the company has not sent any meat direct to Messrs James Nelson and Sons. The company has its own Managers in London and Glasgow, to whom the meat is consigned, and who superintend the sales made by the brokers. Two of our shipments have been sold by Nelson and Sons and two by Ritter and Sons. Perhaps our clients are the best judges of the returns from their sheep sold through Messrs James Nelson and Sons-I am, &c.,
W. KINROSS WHITE.
Napier, N.Z., September 22, 1888

St Mary's Church was crowded at both services yesterday.

Bishop GRIMES of Christchurch preached at 7 a.m. and at vespers in the evening. The evening address was a very clear and logical exposition of the doctrine of the "Real Presence," Bishop GRIMES taking as his text "My delight is to be with children of men," from the Book of Proverbs. He is a very pleasing and argumentative speaker, and he thoroughly interested a large congregation made up of all denominations.

Mr SHEATH wielding the baton and Mrs St CLAIR presiding at the organ. The solos were taken by Mrs SHEATH,, whose flexible and well-cultivated voice is never heard to such advantage as in the florid and beautiful music of the catholic Church, which includes the greatest works of the most eminent composers. Miss LEE, and Messrs MADIGAN, ALLEN, and POPPLEWELL.

Mr SHEATH was also heard to great advantage, speaking solely from a musical point of view, the best sacred concert ever held at NAPIER.

Ormondville Concert
***N.B.Abridged by Elaine

Our Ormondville correspondent writes as follows under Saturday's date: - A very successful concert was given last evening, in aid of the local library fund.

Mr G GRANT occupied the Chair. Selections were contributed in excellent style by:

Mr CHANDLER, SMALL
Misses JONES, HALL, and BRENKLEY
Messrs JONES, SARGISSON, CHALDICOTT, BROWN (2)

Reading and recitation by Mr WHARTON.

Recalls were frequent during the evening.

Mrs SIMES played the accompaniments in an easy finished style.

Vote of thanks to the performers, chair, and the Norsewood brass band-which kindly attended under Mr CHICKEN.

It is not known exactly how much was realised, but I am informed that about £10 will be the net result.

The Right Rev. The Primate was unable to land at Napier on Saturday, owing to the late arrival of the steamer from Wellington. Dr HARPER was therefore prevented on this occasion from inspecting the New St. John's Cathedral, now rapidly approaching completion, but several clergymen of the diocese, including the Rev De Berdt HOVELL and the Rev C L TUKE, went off to the steamer for the purpose of interviewing the Primate.

Waipawa Correspondent-under Saturday's date: -

The rumor regarding Mr T DURHAM, of Ashley-Clinton being drowned is unfounded, but a little boy, the sone of the same person, met his death by falling off a log. The little fellow was only six years old, slipped while getting over a creek, and somehow got under the log and was drowned.

The Rev Mr BERRY, formerly of Napier, made a telling point in a speech delivered at the minister's conference at Wellington on Friday night. He was very severe on class distinctions in churches, and necessity for sympathy and companionship being shown towards people outside the church.

From LIVERPOOL to SAN FRANCISCO

TERRIBLE VOYAGE OF A LIVERPOOL SHIP

The barque BALAKLAVA, Captain William PALMER, belonging to Messrs DAVIDSON, BISSETT, and Co., of Liverpool, has arrived at San Francisco in 436 days from London, by way of Valparaiso, and all the latest mail dates was in quarantine, being fumigated before docking to discharge.

The private memorandum book of Captain PALMER shows that the vessel and her crew had had terrible experiences.

The barque sailed from TILBURY Dock on March 25 last year, and seems to have met with ordinary weather until July 5, when she had been 102 days out.

Then troubles began, as stated in the following extracts from the master’s record:

Tuesday July 5-103 days out; off Cape Horn. Heavy gales; weather very cold; several of the crew frostbitten, and unable to work. Ship laboring very heavily, and lanyards and ironwork carried away daily.

Wednesday July 27-124 days out; latitude 47 deg 20 min S, longitude 79 deg W.; blowing a hurricane. Noon, wore ship to S.W.; wind S>W., with terrible sea. 10 p.m.; ship dismasted the mainmast breaking pumps, winches, mast, combings, deck-plates, and 14 deck planks, making a great hole in the ships’ deck, through which a large quantity of water went down into the hold. The ship is settling fast. The heavy weather continued all night and all day Thursday. Heaving cargo overboard and trying to stop hole in the deck, but find it impossible, and the ship is full of water. The crew are more or less disabled, my own leg being broken.

4 p.m. Thursday 28-Launched the lifeboats, intending to lay by the ship until she foundered or the gale moderated.

5 p.m.-No 1 lifeboat got adrift with sail maker and able-bodied seaman.

5.30 p.m.-No 2 lifeboat was stove to pieces and ten men, including the mate, carpenter, cook, and one apprentice, the rest able-bodied seamen, were drowned. The second-mate went mad, and one of the sailors has gone wrong in the head. God help us; how will this end?

Saturday, July 27-127 days out. Have got hole in the deck partially stopped. Seven feet of water in the ship. Heaving cargo overboard and bailing water. Crew most contemptible cowards. It is impossible for a man to look at them without feeling utmost contempt.

From Monday, August 1, to Saturday, August 20, the ship was drifting about the ocean a complete wreck. Crew employed baling water all the time, and heaving cargo overboard to lighten the ship.

Saturday, August 20-Latitude 45 deg. S., longitude 76 deg. W., The first fine day we have had since the ship was dismasted. Stepped a jury-mast, and cast losses from the drift anchor.

Sunday and Monday, August 21 and 22-Off HAMILINE Island. Heavy gales from N.N.W. Had to wear ship to S.W. Our sails are now all in rags and pieces; nothing more left except two old spankers and two jibs, the remainder having been used to stop the hole in the deck.

Friday, August 26-Still off HAMLINE Island and still blowing a heavy gale.

Saturday, August 27-Off the Island of HUNPO. Still blowing a gale, with heavy hail squalls.

Sunday, August 28-Came to anchor in small bay, an Island bearing S.E. distance about twenty-two miles. Looking for inhabitants.

On the 31st of August found the town of GUILLON, where I reported the ship to the captain of the port. Was ordered to engage ten seamen, one interpreter, and a pilot, and proceed to ANCUD. Secured a steamer at GHOUSSEY, and on September 14 anchored four miles of ANCUD.

The log then details Captain PALMER’S trip to VALPARAISO, and return with a survey to fit out the ship. The ship lay at ANCUD fitting out until the 25th of January of the present year, when she sailed for VALPARAISO, arriving there on February 5.

Thursday, March 22-Sailed for SAN FRANCISCO

The Captain had nothing further of interest to chronicle except the light and variable winds. In his entry of May 25th he says: -“From the 19th to the 25th May we have averaged about ten miles per day. Nothing but calms, calms every day. When is this miserable passage going to end? Surely we are going to have a change soon?” The last entry in the log was made as the unfortunate ship entered the harbor, seventy-six days from VALPARAISO, and ends with “Thank God!”

Present
Messrs ORR (in the chair)

The Inspector's report showed that in Standard V and VI five children had been examined in reading, spelling, dictation, and writing with fair results.

The other subjects will now be taken in November.

In standard IV seventeen children were presented and ten passed

In Standard III twenty two were presented and twelve passed.

In standard II thirty five were presented and sixteen passed

In standard I forty one were presented and fifteen passed.

The preparatory class was also show to be backward owing, it would appear, in the inspector's opinion, to insufficiency on the part of the pupil teacher, in excuse for which it was pointed out that the young lady in question had suffered much in health since the last examination which no doubt had robbed her of much of the necessary energy required for managing a rather class of troublesome children……………………..more

Page 2

A young woman named JESSOP, formerly employed at the Caledonian Hotel as servant, attempted to commit suicide by poison yesterday.

She has been staying at a Mr LUCAS's on the Beach-road, and yesterday in an excited stated she rushed up to Mr LUCAS CALLING OUT "I HAVE DONE IT NOW."

Upon being interrogated it transpire that JESSOP had swallowed a quantity of poisonous powder use for plate polishing. This preparation, which has a mercurial base, had been contained in a box plainly marked "Poison," but it was known whether it was purchased with a view to suicide or whether the foolish young woman happened to have it by her for more innocent uses when she conceived a mad freak of swallowing it.

Dr INNES was at once sent for, and the police were communicated with, both being quickly in attendance and prompt measures were taken and as soon as the immediate danger was perceived her removal was ordered to hospital, where she now is.

The reason for the act was supposed to be despondency due to her disappointed matrimoniakl aspirations.

She stated that her parents had been behaving harshly to her for admitted misconduct, and she drunk the stuff to give them a fright. When asked is she would behave better in the future she made no reply, but to another question said she had no idea of taking another dose, not if her father behaved as he ought to do. Her alternative would be leaving her home. Captain WRAY advised her to go home and be a better girl, and dismissed the information.

The equine youngster, however, is progressing favourably, deriving its nourishment from a cow. Many persons have been seen to see the curious sight of the foal and its attentive foster-mother.

Says the Christchurch Press: Recently it has been stated in LONDON that butter carried home in a frozen state does not answer. This is not confirmed by the experience of Captain BARLOW, of the TAINUI, who on his last trip recently took a box of fresh separator butter manufactured at Long Beach. Before leaving it was placed in the frozen chamber at BELFAST, and on the voyage Home was kept in the refrigerating chamber, so that it must have been in a frozen state for more than two months. Or arriving Home it was taken out of the chamber and used for several weeks, and up to the last day it remained in a perfectly sound condition.

Constantly drunk, with his poor horse wandering for hours about the town day and night, is the uniform course of conduct he pursues. The police should forbid the hotelkeepers supplying such a man with drink. Nothing is a caution to him, and kindness is thrown away. He was fined yesterday £1 for drunkenness and £2 for cruelty to his horse. He was allowed one week to find the cash.

Thomas Mc MANUS sent to gaol for one month for wandering about with no visible means of subsistence

He was 40 years old, and is believed to leave a wife and two children at NEWCASTLE N.S.W.

Story of the Chinaman in OTAGO who tendered for and secured a contract by giving his name as MACPHERSON has often been told.

The Western Star says: - "Mr MACPHERSON is now a somewhat prominent resident of the Round Hill. He was a witness at an inquest last week, and the coroner was somewhat surprised when he appeared in answer his name. When asked for his real name he gave it as George Ah Fu MACPHERSON."

At a recent meeting of the Wellington Diocesan Standing Committee it was stated that the parishioners of WANGANUI desired that Mr G F ALLEN, one of their Synodsmen, to resign, on the ground that he had become a paid choirmaster in a Roman Catholic Church, but that Mr ALLEN had declined on conscientious grounds to accede to this request.

At the next meeting of the Committee the Bishop announced that on further consideration Mr ALLEN had decided to resign, although he still maintained that there was nothing incompatible, in his position-which was purely a matter of private business-with the office of Synodsman. His resignation (adds the New Zealand Times) was accepted, and Mr W J SMITH was appointed Synodsman for Wanganui in his stead.

At the time the accident occurred the boat, which was loaded with about a ton a goods, was about a quarter of a mile from the shore the KAHU lying nearly that distance away.

The sea was rough, with a break at the landing place. One of the crew of the KAHU refused to go in the boat, and Mr Mc ALISTER, who was saved, went in the man's place.

In view of the facts that four lives have been lost there ought to be an official inquiry into the matter.

With today's HERALD is issued the plan of the Karamu reserve, which will be sold by auction on November 7th by Messrs C B HOADLEY and Co, in conjunction with Messrs BAKER and TABUTEAU.

The block has been well laid-off in sections varying from under three to eighty-six acres.

The railway runs right through the middle of the land, the TOMOANA station is just on the edge, and if the settlement justifies it no doubt another station will be established between TOMOANA and WHAKATU.

Complaints are often made that good land on the plains near NAPIER cannot be obtained at reasonable prices, but as in this instance there is practically no reserve, as the land is to be sold under an order of the Supreme Court, the genuine demand for land will be tested, and the prices obtained will be a better criterion of present values than we have had for years past.
Local News Summary

In our telegraphic columns will be found the details of the death of a young lady by accidentally taking poison. The many friends of Mr Sydney SYKES, formerly of the Napier workshops, will regret to learn that the object of the accident was his daughter.

Mr Joseph CHAMBERLAIN has properly sized up Mr GLADSTONE in declaring, as our cable news states, that he is preaching pure anarchy. The grand old humbug's motto appears to be, "Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven."
