MARRIAGE

WHIBLEY-JOLL

At Hastings on 5th June, by the Rev Robert FRASERassisted by the Rev. John COWIE, Edwin James WHIBLEY to Mary Jane JOLL, both of Hastings

Some time after the death of Father DAMIEN, of MOLOKAI, the Rev Dr HYDE addressed a letter to the Rev H B GAGE, which was published by a section of the Press, asserting that Father Damien was totally unworthy of any laudation, and describing him as a man coarse, dirty, head-strong, and bigoted.

The letter then went to insinuate that Father Damien had contracted the leprosy from which he died through immoral conduct.

Mr Robert Louis STEVENSON, the celebrated novelist, has published a letter in defence of Father Damien, which is perhaps one of the most artistic and brilliant literary efforts of Mr STEVENSON.

His defence of the man he esteemed is most powerful. He first promises that after having read Dr. HYDE'S letter he felt himself inspired to reply. He contrasts Father Damien and Dr Hyde much to the disadvantage of the latter.

He then gives an insight to the home of lepers which he visited, and next, at some length pourtrays the character of Father Damien.

Miss Hilda HITCHENS met with a nasty accident last night, owing to the dastardly action of some yahoos who placed a piece of timber in front of the gate opposite the entrance to Browning Street by the Cathedral. In coming out of the Cathedral she tripped over the obstruction, falling with great violence, and cutting and bruising her right arm. She was taken to the parsonage, where Mr H OWEN, chemist, attended to her injuries. The church authorities should strain a point to get a lamp at each of the Cathedral entrances, as cowardly tricks such as the one perpetrated last night would fail to be successful if the gate entrances were lit up.

Mr W ANDERSEN applied for a license for an accommodation house at Moawhange, Patea.

Mr SHEATH appeared in support of the application and Mr LEE against it, on behalf of the five natives as required by the Act, which also required that a European be joined in the opposition Mr VAULDER opposed on his own behalf. Messrs BROUGHTON and TAIAROA acted as interpreters.

There were long arguments on both sides and Messrs J LYON and W BROUGHTON were examined as witnesses in support of the application, their evidence going to show that the proposed house would tend to stop sly grog selling in the district.
Constable LEACH was in favor of the proposed license, there being nothing against the character of the applicant.

After some consideration the Bench said they were unanimously of the opinion that the proposed house would be an advantage to the traveling public, but having regard to clauses 2 and 3 of section 22 of the Licensing Act which made the consent of the Native Assessor indispensable, they were compelled to refuse the license.

Two "ancient mariners" have just died in MELBOURNE namely, Captain Campbell (aged 85) and Captain Mc MECHAN (aged 81).

Captain CAMPBELL left Scotland for Hobart Town in 1825, and had as eventful subsequent careers as the New Zealand hero Captain BARRY. He went to Victoria in 1836, and was for many years engaged in whaling pursuits at Port Fairy. Before the gold rush he was made harbor-master in MELBOURNE, a position he held right through the busy and anxious time of the early fifties and down to 1869.

Captain Mc MECKAN, who was also a colonist since the "thirties," must be known to many in New Zealand. He was of the firm Mc MECHAN, BLACKWOOD and Co., who started the steam service between Melbourne and Dunedin, the Bluff, and Hokitika. The ALDINGA, ALBAMBRA, ALBION, and RINGAROOMA were some of the best known boats.

She promptly raised the alarm and Mr ERICKSEN, a storekeeper residing next door rushed into the hotel and with assistance cut HIGGINS down. He was in a state of collapse, completely unconscious. By careful attention he was partially restored, but he did not properly recover consciousness or the power of speech, and when the train for Napier left Norsewood yesterday afternoon he was too ill to be removed to the hospital.

Constable SIDDLES took steps to have HIGGINS properly attended to and watched, and when sufficiently recovered he will be brought to NAPIER. HIGGINS had been despondent for some time about money matters, but had given no intimation that he was likely to attempt to injure himself.

HBH 1890 Sept 5 WALTON George inquest

Woodville correspondent writes under yesterday's date: -

The body of George WALTON was found in the river yesterday about three quarters of a mile from the upper Gorge Bridge.

Constable TREANOR had the body taken out of the river and carried on a stretcher to a carpenter's shed. The inquest was held at 9 pm before Mr C HALL and lasted until midnight. Dr DAVENPORT carefully examined the body and testified to their being no marks of violence, and in his opinion death was caused by suffocation from drowning.

In evidence the constable stated that he found a satchel suspended from the neck of the body by a strap, and stone weighting 19lb in the satchel. The strap had caught on the limb of a snag. The head was 4ft under water and the feet above. There were no papers. The hands of the deceased's watch pointed to the hour of 4.

The jury returned an open verdict that there was no evidence to show the cause of death.
Last evening the 6.30 o'clock bus from the Spit got into trouble. Coming down the Shakespeare hill the brake did not act, with the result that the four horses attached to the vehicle bolted.

Mr Mc GRATH, the driver, pluckily stuck to the reins and managed to avoid collision with the traps he met, but when opposite Mr PREBBLE's shop the near shaft horse fell, dragging his mate on top of him, and of course bringing up the whole concern short.

The traces had to be cut to liberate the horses. The passengers got off with a fright.

The Revs: Messrs Mc NICOLL, COWIE,, and BEECROFT gave interesting though brief addresses.

Hastings readers reminded polling day for the Hastings Borough Council election and urge those who wish to vote for Mr Joseph H WILLIAMS to attend and record their votes. It is almost superfluous to advert to his qualifications for the office of councilor, they being so well known, but I may point out that he is an old resident here, a clear-headed practical man of business, and popular with all classes. If, therefore, he be elected, we may reasonably hope that he will not be either a dummy or the mere mouthpiece of any clique, but will hold a board and far-sighted policy, recognizing the fact that the interests of the town and of the borough are identical. I may therefore add that Mr HUGHES is a popular townsman, who has a great many friends, and has, I understand, been canvassing diligently, so that Mr WILLIAMS will need every vote that he can get.

An individual of foreign extraction named Desire VERSCHAFFELT was abroad at about 11 p.m. on Tuesday, and judging by the proceedings at the Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday before Messrs T K NEWTON and DUNCAN, J.P's., evidently went out with the intention of "painting the town red."

The sphere of his operations was confined to the short stretch of road from the Occidental Hotel to the police station, but he made the most of his limited opportunities, as the following record of his experiences before the sitting Justices will show: - Drunkenness-10s and costs or 48 hours' hard labor; resisting the police-£1 and cost or three days' hard labor; tearing a constable's coat-24 hours hard labor. The sentences were cumulative.

SCENE

At Hastings Street Napier. Mr BARKER, politician, meets Mr GROWLITT, professor of odds and ends, the latter being unacquainted with the former. Says BARKER, "I presume your name's GROWLITT, how de do?" Growlitt, taken aback slightly, says "And pray who are you?" "My name is Barker." "Ah," retorts Growlitt, in a tone as if what he had heard solved a lot of questions, "My name is Growlitt." Barker says, smilingly, "They say that we are two cranks, and just like each other." Growlitt, stepping back and regarding Barker with assumed astonishment. "You like me!" and a pause, after which Growlitt, who succeeds in recollecting the bit of MILTON he has been cudgelling for, tragically says, "Aye, equal to me thou art in fate, but not in renows." "Exactly," says Barker, "but our nonsense in equal to their sense." "Don't say our" says Growlitt, "the pronoun is misplaced." Barker just managed to gasp out "Good day" as Growlitt stalked off.

The lad James ANDERSON was brought before Captain PREECE R.M. at the Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, on remand, and pleaded guilty to stealing a watch from the premises of C VOLSARD, and a pair of trousers from the shop of S G RADFORD. Captain PREECE, after informing him that he might have been sentenced to a long term of imprisonment, which, however, he feared would not be of any benefit to him, committed him to the BURNHAM Industrial School until he reached the age of 15 years (he is now 12 years and 8 months old) on the first charge, and having recorded a conviction dismissed him on the second.

The boy is to be brought up in the Presbyterian faith, and the father having explained in answer to the Bench that he had other children to support, and had lost his wife eighteen months ago; no order was made for maintenance.

It may not be generally known (says a Wellington exchange) that the English sparrow, which at present is scarcely regarded by the New Zealand farmer and orchardist as a harmless, necessary importation, was first introduced into the colony by Sir Walter -then-Dr BULLER. Sir Walter BULLER stated at last night's meeting of the Philosophical Society, stated in the year 1865, when in LONDON he advertised for 100 sparrows, for the procuration of which, and their delivery in WELLINGTON, he offered, on behalf of the Provincial Government, no less a sum than £106....more..then he has not altered his opinion that they are the friend rather than the enemy of the settlers.

Waipawa correspondent under Saturday's date: -

One of Waipawa's oldest settlers (William Liddle) passed away yesterday at the district hospital. The break-up was sudden at the last, for he looked hale and hearty only a short time ago, and only lately had undertaken the duties of pound-keeper in addition to his ordinary work.

The funeral is to take place tomorrow at 3 p.m.

Deceased was an old volunteer, and once served in the Waipawa Cavalry Volunteer Corps under Captain TANNER. Had he lived a little longer he would probably have received a land grant under the Naval and Military Settlers and Volunteer's Land Act; but now, I suppose, his claims will die with him, as there is no provision for the heirs or assignees of claimants' bringing forward such claims

Hastings Correspondent

The numerous friends of Mrs CHAPMAN will regret to learn that she met with a serious accident about 5 o'clock last Saturday evening. It seems that she was driving a buggy along the Railway road near Sanders road when her horse shied at a little girl on horseback, and turning on to the railway crossing capsized the vehicle.

Mrs CHAPMAN was thrown hear foremost on to the railway, and lay insensible across the rails. Fortunately there was no train passing at the time, although one passed about three minutes afterwards. A girl who saw the accident ran to Mrs SANDER;s house and gave the alarm, and Mrs CHAPMAN was taken there and kept an hour, when she was removed to her own residence. There she was attended by Dr FAULKNER, who found she was suffering from concussion of the brain. I am happy to state that she is now going on as well as could be expected after so severe a shock. The only other occupant of the buggy was a little child, who escaped uninjured.

Clyde Town Board-For some time previous Mr Thos PARKER, was unable to attend the meetings owing to ill-health, and Mr J H SMYTHE invariably presided in the chairman's absence. After waiting for a considerable time in order to get a full attendance of members at the Board at its late meeting, Messrs J H SMYTHE, G N FLINT, A POYZER, and A JAMES being present (the new member) Mr H P BROWN, deciding to defer taking his seat on account of an informality in his election, viz., the absence of the returning officer on the nomination day....more....It is hard to say what will be the upshot of these and other complications in connection with this local body.
The newly elected committee of the Hawke's Bay Jockey Club met yesterday afternoon, when a circular was read from Mr H M LYON, secretary of the Late New Zealand Conference, asking the H B J C to appoint delegates to attend a conference to be held in WELLINGTON for the purpose of considering forming a New Zealand Jockey Club.

Messrs J.D. ORMOND and W.R. RUSSELL were appointed delegates.

Messrs LANG, SHRIMPTON, and FitzROY were appointed to a sub-committee to draw up programmes for the ensuing season.

The Resident Magistrate yesterday gave judgment in the case of HUGHES v MYERS, in which the latter was charged with allowing more passengers to be in the 'bus' than permitted.
A journalistic conference between the directors and shareholders of the New Zealand United Press Association and representatives of the leading newspapers in SYDNEY and MELBOURNE will be held at the Wellington office of the Press Association next week for the purpose of discussing the future supply of cable news to the colony.

The funeral will leave his late residence at 2.30 o'clock p.m. on Sunday. Friends will please accept this intimation

The search party found the body of Robert STREETER yesterday in a hole a short distance from where deceased and his mate were fencing. The locality is about forty miles from GISBORNE in very rough country, beyond the oil springs.

The message states that there is evidence of STREETER having been murdered, although the body is in an advanced state of decomposition.

William BLACK (charged with the murder) and STREETER's wife are to leave GISBORNE today in charge of the police to be present at the inquest. Detective CAMPBELL, of WELLINGTON, arrived here this morning and proceeds to the scene of the murder.
RIVERSLEA SALES

Messrs C B HOADLEY and Co report: -
We are receiving considerable inquiry for the unsold Riverslea sections, and notwithstanding the low price of produce, and potatoes in particular, the yield per acre of the latter crop has been so prolific that prices asked for the various allotments are now being paid, as it has been demonstrated that owing to the rich character of the soil, most of it being virgin, profitable yields have resulted, and, had an average market been secured this season producers would have done much better and been enabled to have taken up more land, a desire very general amongst those of us who have already bought.

Our Sales since last report are as follows: -

Block 8
Sections 446 to 451 and 498 to 508-HAYES and INGLIS-£18 per acre

HASTINGS

Own Correspondent-July 18, 1890

Last evening St. Matthew's lecture room was crowded by young men who came to discuss ways and means for the establishment of a gymnasium in our town.

The Rev J HOBBS was voted to the chair, and briefly explained the nature of the project, and read a letter from Mr FENWICK expressing his willingness to join the club, and do all in his power to help it, sending the names of six Tomoana members, and expressing his inability to attend the meeting. Letters of apology received from Messrs FRASER and GORE.

Resolutions passed

"A Society is started in Hastings under the name of "St Matthew's Gymnastic and Athletic Club."

Rev J HOBBS-elected President
Mr BEILBY-Vice-president
Mr G ROACH- elected Secretary and Treasurer.

Gisborne-Friday

The body of Robert STREETER was brought on a pack horse from the place of its discovery along a fearfully rough road to the Whakatutu Hotel 36 miles from here. Dr INNES conducted the post-mortem examination, and Mr BOOTH R.M. held the inquest.

Mr W L REES appeared for the prisoner and Mrs STREETER.

Constable LAW deposed
Dr INNES-deposed

Elizabeth STREETER gave evidence and stated that the body was that of her husband and she last saw him alive five months ago.

Arthur PARKINSON and Frank MACDONALD identified the body as that of STREETER.

BLACK will be bought before a Magistrate on Friday.

Owing to the lease of the Caledonian Hotel falling in that property is in the market. During Mr Mc CARTNEY's seven years control
The hotel has become known as a flourishing property, and will no doubt be largely inquired after.

According to a return presented to the House at the instance of Mr GOLDIE during last year 294 offenders under the age of 20 years
were received into the prisons of the colony. Of that number 190 were New Zealanders and 61 were English; 127 belonged to the
Church of England; 70 were Roman Catholic, and 44 Presbyterians.
St Asaph St, LINWOOD
Sept, 2nd, 1889.

Sir,-My daughter Alice aged 16 years, came home from service with her throat in a terrible state from Diphtheria, and so weak that she could only stand with help.

On the Friday at noon I began to use freely the "New Cure," and by noon on Saturday the throat was quite clean. She only required to keep her bed for one day, and in a very short time she was about. She was always rather delicate, but now looks better that she has done for years.

No other medicines or any application whatever to the throat was used. Although my house is small and Alice, none took the disease. The quickness of the Cure was simply wonderful. With such a remedy no one need fear Diphtheria now.

I have heard of no other cures quite as rapid.

I am
Your obedient servant

Mr TURNBULL'S FUNERAL

The Speaker informed the House this afternoon that he proposed, to leave the chair at 5 p.m. instead of 5.30 p.m., with the permission of the members, to take part in the funeral procession to the steamer conveying the late Mr TURNBULL'S remains at TIMARU, for that purpose, nearly every member in Wellington followed the hearse conveying the body to the steamer 'PENGUIN" which left for LYTTELTON about 6 o'clock.

Later-

TRIBUTE TO A DECEASED LEGISLATOR.

Fully 100 members of the two Houses of Legislature followed the remains of the Late Mr TURNBULL from his late residence to the
steamer this evening. Several Ministers and Sir George GREY were among the number.

Witnesses had a rough trip to WHAKATUTU, the rivers being high in flood and the roads very bad. This morning the prisoner named BLACK was taken to view the body.

Immediately he entered the room the police sergeant asked him, "Do you know who that is?" He replied "Yes, Robert STREETER." Those were the only words that have fallen from him; otherwise he has throughout maintained a taciturn, stolid demeanour.

WELLINGTON-Friday

The HINEMOA will convey the body of the late Mr TURNBULL to TIMARU, where the funeral takes place.

Libel action arising out of the late Petone Woollen Mill dispute was heard today. D McKENZIE, secretary of the outside union, charged G A BAILEY, shoemaker, Petone, with exhibiting in his shop window a document reflecting on the plaintiff. The accused was committed for trial.

The ex-operative of the Petone Woollen Mill have written to the Trade and Labor Council demanding further strike pay, threatening in default of compliance the institution of legal proceedings.
