Waipawa Court
Dec 31 1891

This morning, before Messrs INGLIS and LESLIE, justices, John Burke O'BRIEN was charged with vagrancy, and pleaded not guilty. Sergeant M?ARDLE said.....more....defendant sated that he had only been in town one day when he was locked up; he said he had regular employment at BLACKBURN'S flaxmill.

O'BRIEN commenced protesting against his incarceration and declaring he would appeal against his sentence of two months' with hard labor in NAPIER gaol. As nearly as I could catch, the words he said were like poetry and went like this: -

Honest men like me to gaol are sent,
Sad and cruel is their tale.
Alas! Too often they repent
of being too honest for to steal.
For when they leave the prison vile
The police are on their track;
Poverty's their only crime,
For a longer period they're sent back.

I believe he had a record of eleven convictions since April last.

Suicide at the spit
The dead body of a man was yesterday afternoon found hanging to a rafter in HOLT'S old mill at the Spit.

The discovery was made by Mr J.L.ANDERSON, who resides near the mill. He keeps poultry, and thinking his hens were laying away he entered tie mill to look for eggs. Upon seeing the body hanging, and ascertaining that it was a corpse, he at once informed Constable HARVEY, who cut the body down and searched its clothing for evidence of identification and these seemed to prove that deceased was a man name James McDOUGALL, of BRISBANE, but who had been in New Zealand for several months.

The body, which was that of a man apparently about 40 years of age, 5 feet 9 inches in height, was shabbily dressed, and carpet slippers were upon the feet. In the pockets of the clothing were found a deposit receipt of the National Bank of Queensland for nearly £200, payable in March next, a bank book of the Auckland post office bank showing a credit of £34 17s 6d, and two one-pound notes and 19s 6d in money.

Deceased was last seen alive on the evening of the 31st of December, and as the body was much decomposed it is highly probably that he hanged himself that night.. He came to Napier first about three months ago, from Auckland, and after working some time as a wharf labourer at the port he went to Wellington. He returned from there on the 27th of December and those who came into contact with deceased regarded him as a moody and eccentric kind of person, and there seems no reasonable doubt that the unfortunate man was the victim of delusions due to melancholia. An inquest will be held at the Spit today.

Among the effects found upon deceased were several draft letters, and the following address on an envelope: - "John THURSE, SCOTLAND." There was also found a cable message from Brisbane, and supposed to be from the wife or daughter of deceased, as it was signed "Janet M'DOUGALL." The message was to the effect that the sender was well and desired deceased to write. The draft letter ran as follows: -

"Auckland, There are a lot of rumors here about Elgin and our family. These are not in the mouths of friends, but enemies. I could wish that I had a few friends in this colony. Take care of yourself, Dougall, I am receiving hard dealings here, but why I do not know-a scapegoat for others. It is knocking me off everything. Yours affectionately, John M?DOUGALL."

"Dear Uncle and Cousins, - I am in great trouble. Could you do me any good? John M?DOUGALL, your nephew. Read the Observer of the 12th and 19th of December."

"Dear Aunt and cousins-I am receiving bad usage here. Could you look up this way and protect your nephew, John M?DOUGALL? The Observer of 19th of December and two previous issues will inform you what is meant."

News from KAIKORA and WAIPAWA area

Dated Jan 1st 1892.

Mr S. HAMELING had an accident this morning. While coming down the slope at the end of Waverley street with his buggy the crupper broke, and this impetus was as great that the horse ran into the chain bounding the footway, smashing both shafts, but hurting neither the horse nor driver.


Dr. MACGREGOR, Inspector of Hospitals, visited the county hospital today, and expressed himself highly pleased.

January 2nd
Mr O'GORMAN is not likely to be able to resume duty at the post office for at least another week, and in the meantime Mr PICKETT is being severely overworked.

The train from South leaving here at 5 p.m. yesterday ran into a bullock straying on the line at BRITTEN'S Crossing, a mile North of Kaikora. The concussion was so great that
The engine, five trucks, and a carriage were thrown clear of the metals and the line ploughed up. Fortunately no one was hurt, the driver jumping off the engine.

The animal it is said belonged to Mr BRITTEN. A train from town came and fetched the passengers on, and the Palmerston train was forward on to Kaikora to bring home the numerous passengers who had been to the Park races.

HBH 1892 Jan 5

Mr J.P.HAMLIN is a man of many good tales, one of the best telling how his father lost a blanket.

The Rev. James HAMLIN, it is needless to remind all but "new chums," was one of the early missionaries to New Zealand.

He was a big man, of great muscular development, and his feats of strength no doubt aided him to acquire an influence over the Maoris.

One powerful chief regarded Mr Hamlin as his special pakeha. This chief owned a number of slaves.

One day a little baby Hamlin was disporting himself on a blanket in the kitchen, when a slave entered and stole the blanket.

The alarm was raised, and Mr Hamlin, rushing out, caught the thief in the garden.

By way of punishment he lifted the slave bodily and threw him over the garden fence which was about seven foot high.

The missionary returned to his studies, satisfied that he had saved his blanket, but he had reckoned without his chief.

That august personage was very wroth when he heard of the attempted robbery from his pakeha, and decreed that the slave should be killed and eaten.

The slave, hearing of this, took refuge in Mr Hamlin's house. There he was sought by the irate rangatira, who stoutly maintained that the slave had forfeited his life, and that he must be sacrificed unless utu, or compensation, was paid.

The end of it was that Mr Hamlin had to give the identical blanket which the slave had tried to steal to save the would be thief's life.

Such was Maori law in the early days. The methods now are different, but somehow the results to litigants often come out much the same.

The fine old Maori gentleman, all of the olden time, sometimes finds a prototype in a lawyer of modern days.

William ELLINGHAM, licensee of the Occidental Hotel, was yesterday charged at the Resident Magistrate's Court with allowing liquor to be consumed on his premises during hours prohibited by law.....more.....Sgt CULLEN stated that those whose names were taken were not guests or lodgers.

Resident Court yesterday before Mr TURNBULL R.M.

Benjamin JOHNSON fined 5s and costs for drunkenness

Mary LAMB, not altogether unknown to the minions of the law was fined £1 and costs for drunkenness.

Richard WELLS discharged with a caution for drunkenness, but was sentenced to three days' hard labor for indecency.
A man named Frank OCKENDON was arrested yesterday on a charge of lunacy. The unfortunate man appeared to be particularly tormented by delusions, as he was crawling through culverts, turning somersaults, &c, when taken in charge.

An inquest was held at the Spit yesterday on the body of the man John M?Dougall, a full account of whose suicide appeared in our last issue. Nothing in addition to the facts we published was elicited, and the jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased hanged himself while of unsound mind.

The result of the examinations for the Caledonian Society's scholarships is that
Edmund LYONS wins the scholarship for boys, and Annie MORTENSEN that of the girls.
In an action against John M?DONALD, a settler at Herbertville, charged with having allowing cattle to stray on to the railway line, and proceeded against under a by law recently passed by the Railway Commissioners, enabling them to prosecute anyone whose cattle strayed on to a railway, whether it was fenced or not.

The Bench decided that the bye-law was ultra vires, and dismissed the case
On Wednesday, the 40th of December, between 10 and 11 0'clock in the morning Dr. M?Lennan of Eketahuna was drunk. .........more....... asked a man to accompany him to his surgery and help him to concoct a mixture under his directions and the doctor swallowed it.

He then made way to the hotel he stayed at, and was assisted to his room by the housemaid. Afterwards she heard a heavy fall in the room but did not go to see what it was. At nearly 5 o'clock in the evening he was found dead in his room, an unopened bottle of champagne in one of his pockets.

An inquest was held, and a post mortem examination made. The result of this was to show that no food had been taken for days, that the liver was enlarged, and that there was fatty degeneration of the heart.

The doctor who made the examination deposed that death was accelerated by suffocation, as when deceased fell the pressure of the stomach on the heart would cause syncope. The jury returned the following verdict: - "That Dr. W. G. M?LENNAN died from flatulent distension of the stomach and pressure on the heart, causing syncope."

Messrs MILNER and THOMPSON have something like a novelty. It is a fine toned violin contained within the limits of a walking stick, everything being of the highest quality.

It is not a toy, but can be made to discourse as good music as a violin of the ordinary shape and size, they also show another novelty obtained to the order of Mr SPACKMAN. It is an instrument (or rather a combination of three instruments) for strengthening and rendering supple the wrists and fingers for piano-playing.

An elderly man named Harry Wilson, who was arrested a week ago for drunkenness, must have peculiar ideas as to what constitutes that condition.

When arrested he was in a very bad condition though drink, and was remanded to be treated by the gaol surgeon. He was brought up at the Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday, appearing considerably saner than on his first appearance, and was formally charged with drunkenness and he denied the charge, in spite of all that had happened, and evidence had to be given.

This conclusively proved the drunkenness. He was ordered to pay the cost of his treatment I gaol, together with 7s costs, but time was allowed him to pay the money.

THE DRINK EVIL

Sir,- Now that the preoccupation caused by the holiday season is over, is it not a suitable time to take some measures for the lessening or removal of the evil of intemperance that has been working such misery in our midst? I would there, as a citizen and clergyman of the town of Napier, beg his Worship the Mayor to call a public meeting to see what can be done to stay this evil of intemperance.-
I am &c.,

The barque INVERURIE arrived in the bay at midnight on Thursday, and anchored off the Bluff, very close in shore. The s.s. Wairoa went off to her at 5.30 a.m. yesterday with the health officers and a supply of fresh provisions. The ship’s company mustered along the rail in full sight of those aboard the Wairoa, and appeared an able lot of men in perfect health.

In answer to inquiries the chief officer (the Acting Captain) stated that the Inverurie left Santos on the 6th of November. Captain CRANCH in command, and a couple of days later after leaving the Captain took ill with pains in his head and across the loins. His illness increased, but he still kept at his work, and directed the movements of the ship up to a few hours of his death.

Four of the crew had slight fever about the same time, of an intermittent type, but the symptoms of Captain CRANCH’S illness were as like the current Influenza as possible.

The Central board of Health have been communicated with, and the future movements of the Inverurie depend upon their decision.

An empty cottage in Bell Street Kaikora was discovered to be on fire about 7 o'clock this morning, but the flames had got too good a hold to save it and it was entirely destroyed.

The house on the adjoining section, in the holding of Mr A.G. MONK, was saved by the efforts of Mr VENN and others, although at one time its preservation was doubtful.

The cottage burned down belongs to Mr SAINSBURY, Napier, and is insured in the National. No clue exists as to the origin, but it is a curious fact that it was found on fire last Sunday morning, and was only saved by the promptitude of Mr D. MILNE,

We were subsequently informed that the other cottage, occupied by Mr A.G. MONK and owned by Mr S. JOHNSON had been burned down. Mr A.G.MONK was away working at the time of the fire and when Mr VENN left the house was apparently safe, but at 1 p.m. was found to be on fire.

After this an adjournment was made to a paddock attached to the manse, where various games were practised by the youngsters with much zest until about 5 o'clock, when the whole party returned to the hall, where 72 children and about 50 adults sat down to a plentiful tea provided by the Sunday School teachers and the ladies of the congregation.

A disastrous buggy accident occurred in Emerson Street yesterday afternoon.

Mrs DAVIS of Puketapu, with Miss DAVIS, Mrs John McKINNON, jun, of STRATHOLM, Wairoa, and her infant, were about to start from PALMER'S stables for home when the horse attached to the buggy suddenly bolted. Miss DAVIS, who was driving, managed to guide the frightened animal past several vehicles, but when n ear Mr ECCLE'S branch pharmacy the horse started kicking, and she temporarily lost control of it. Opposite was Mrs W.T. IRVINE'S buggy in which two of her children and a nursemaid as well as vehicles making the passage between ver4y narrow. Miss DAVIS pluckily stuck to the reins and remained perfectly cool, but was unable to guide the horse with the nicety required and the runaway dashed with great force into Mrs IRVINE'S buggy. Mrs DAVIS's buggy was upset and the occupants thrown violently to the ground. Miss DAVIS had an almost miraculous escape, getting off with a bruise or two. But it fared worse with the others. Mrs DAVIS and Mrs McKINNON fell on their heads and were picked up unconscious, the former being carried into Mr PITT'S establishment and the latter into Mr ECCLES' shop. Dr CARO and INNES were soon in attendance, and found both were seriously injured. Mrs DAVIS sustained a fracture of the skull, and Mrs McKINNON received concussion of the brain. Mrs DAVIS was taken to Dr. INNES' house, and Mrs McKINNMJON to Dr. CARO'S. In the evening Mrs DAVIS recovered partial consciousness, but at a late hour last night Mrs McKINNON remained semi-conscious. Mrs McKINNON's baby was slightly bruised, but no bones were broken. One of Mrs IRVINE'S children was injured in one ankle and the back, but it is hoped not seriously. Both buggies were much damaged, and Mrs IRVINE'S horse received some injury.

When some five years ago the Hawke's Bay Caledonian Society was started, through the Energetic instrumentality of Mr R SMITH, few could have supposed that it would attain to its present importance and magnitude it is now one of the premier organisations in the colony, and its annual gatherings are events of the first order in athletic circles.

It is doubtful if a better show can be seen anywhere in the home of Caledonian sports. It is doubtful whether Inverness and Braemer, the two principal gatherings in Scotland, could event boast of such a display of youthful dancing as may be seen here tomorrow. In the long distance race the celebrated Kenny BAYNE has arrived, and looks as if our local champion Sam M?DOWELL, is said to be in the pink of condition. In the dancing competition will be the two most successful dancers at the Timaru and Dunedin sports, and also DAVIDSON and BANKS both famous dancers, besides our local champions.

In today's issue appears the prospectus of the Waiotapu Oil Mining Company. We understand that a very substantial offer has been made by a syndicate of Sydney and Melbourne gentlemen to the solicitor for the company, Mr Austin BAKER, at Melbourne for the purchase of the present company's assets.

We have already referred to the merits of the petroleum, hematite's, acid and various other mineral deposits found on the ground of the company's lease at Waiotapu, and each day goes to strengthen it, as the secretary Mr SCOTT, who is here on a visit, receives almost constant confirmation of its increasing value and of fresh deposits being found.

Intending investors had better not delay too long, as shares will only be allotted on priority of application.

Shipping note: -Kate Tatham
When leaving the wharf at 7.30 a.m., yesterday for Greymouth, her pilot KRAEFT had a narrow escape from drowning. He had stepped into the boat and let go the ladder when the boat tippled over and he dropped in the water. His men did not realise that he was overboard till they were fifty yards away.

Pilot KRAEFT was always of the opinion that he could not swim a stroke, but now thinks it is a very easy matte as he had not difficult in keeping afloat till the boat came up and took him on board again. With all the varied experience Mr KRAEFT has had as mariner and pilot this is the first time he has ever fallen overboard and
He has not the slightest desire to repeat the experience.

An inquest was held at CLIVE yesterday, before Mr E. BECK, coroner, on the body of Peter POWNALL.

It appeared from the evidence that the deceased, who had been ill for a long time with phthisis, and had suffered from insomnia and melancholia, rose from his bed at about half past 3 o'clock yesterday morning and had a smoke.

After finishing smoking he went out as though for a stroll. Shortly after he left the house his daughter saw him walking in the direction of Mr RATHIE's house. Looking in that direction for some little time afterwards she could not see her father, but upon going a little way from the house she was horrified to see him hanging from the branch of a willow tree close to Mr Rathie's house.

An alarm was at once raised, and the body still warm was cut down by Mr Rathie, but life was extinct.

Deceased had gone into the cow bail near Mr Rathie's house, taken a leg rope there from, and after mounting a fencer from which he could pass the rope of a limb of a willow tree, had there hanged himself.

There appeared no doubt whatever that deceased's long illness had affected his mind, and the jury brought in a verdict to the effect "that he had committed suicide by hanging while suffering from a disordered intellect."

KOWALSKI, the great pianist now in Napier, is a Frenchman descended from an old Irish family on his mother's side and from an equally old Polish family on his father's side. His mother's family name was WOGAN. Her ancestors migrated to France after the fall of the Stuarts. Kowalski's father left Poland a proscribed man, owing to his devotion to his Fatherland. He became an officer the French Army in 1831, marrying soon after. Kowalski, who manifested exceptional musical talent as a child, studied at the Paris Conservatory from 1851 till 1861, his teachers for execution being Marmontel and Prudent, and for composition Reber and Carafs. After brilliant successes as a player and composer he went to England in 1869 for a season, and evoked much enthusiasm. He paid four visits to America, the first being in 1876, being engaged with OFFENBACH for a concert season. He came to Australia in connection with the Melbourne Exhibition, and gave one hundred concerts in Melbourne alone. The decoration he now wears-that of "Officer de l'Academie de France," was granted to him for his services to French art in Australia. He has besides over 50 other gold decorations of various kinds, Of his musical compositions 121 have been published in the various countries of the world, and he is the composer of several operatic works, including a five act opera "Gilles de Bretegae," and the three act comic opera "Le Moustique." During the time of the Melbourne Exhibition he was special correspondent for Le Figaro, and his descriptive letters were widely copied. He has also published a book that had great success in France entitled " A Travers Americne."

DEATH

I regret to announce the death of Mr John MACKERSEY at 3.30 this (Monday) morning at Waipukurau.

His loss will be much felt in public circles, he being one of the few men of means willing to take his share of public duties.

I believe that he was one of the prime movers in the effort that resulted in the erection of the county Hospital, to which institution he was most friendly, and was repeatedly the chairman of the Hospital Board, and held that position at his death.

If I am correctly informed, he has been a member of the Waipawa County Council from its commencement until this division, and was also several times. When the Patangata County was formed he was chosen its first chairman and held the same position until his death.

During the last four or five years he represented the UNITED CHARITABLE AID BOARD as almoner in these parts, and I have heard no complaints of his administration.

The interment will take place tomorrow afternoon.

The hospital grounds, or the old police station reserve at Spooner's Point,, would be much more convenient.

Sir John Gorst's Antipodean friends (writes a London correspondent) will be pleased to bear of his promotion in the Government, It is a long time now since Sir John left New Zealand, where he acted for a couple of years as Civil Commissioner In the Waikato.

While in the Waikato he started the once famous Maori newspaper, Te Hokioi, which he
edited for a time in a whare beyond Ngaruawhia, In the troublous days which preceded the final straggle between the Waikato Maoris, and the invading pakehas.

Those who were in New Zealand during the wars it the sixties will remember that at the battle of Rangiriri the Maoris, having plenty of powder but no ball for the few fourteen-pounders they possessed, loaded their guns with shop-weights looted from the pakeha store-keepers along the Waikato.

In the early part of the fight at Rangiriri they did considerable damage with those missiles
on the droghors in which the troops were conveyed up the river.

At a subsequent battle, further on in the Waipa direction the shop weights having been all used up, the Maoris seized upon the fixtures of the 'Hokioi' office, and the guns were charged with type. And it came to pass, according to local tradition, that Sir John Gorst,
who was among the British troops for safety on the occasion of the battle in question, was nearly shot with one of his own "spring poems," the column of type with which the gun was charged having smashed into a wall a few inches away from the future statesman's devoted head.

He liked high rates of interest, but money was difficult to obtain on any terms in those days, and many of our earlier settlers owe their present comfortable surroundings to Mr TOLLEMACHE'S capital, widely expended to improving their properties.

Mr Tollemache had the reputation of being "close-fisted," but many generous acts are recorded of him, and it was owing to his forbearance in times of low prices and severed pressure that he made his fortune.
