Our Waipawa correspondent writing yesterday says : - It is not known how Mr T.PARKINSON'S house at HAMPDEN took fire, but it appears to have been set on fire by someone, as the fire broke out in the heart of the house, and had complete mastery before anyone notice it. There had not been a fire or light in the place for weeks, and the doors were all locked and the keys kept at the house of the elder Mr PARKINSON. It was a clean sweep. The house was insured with the South British Company for ?150.

William Black funeral
The body of the late William Black was yesterday committed to its last resting place in the Napier cemetery.
The funeral cortege was a very long one, settlers from all parts of the district being included in it, and nearly every local body in the district was represented. The procession started from the terminus Hotel, where deceased had boarded for some years. The coffin had for pall the robes of a master of the Loyal Orange Lodge, of which deceased had been for many years a member.
There was a strong muster of members of that Order, but no regalia were worn.
The procession, which was added to as it proceeded towards the cemetery, as it passed up Milton Road comprised some couple of hundred persons walking, and eleven carriages containing corporation officials, members of the Municipal Council, and other prominent townspeople.
On either side of the hearse walked representatives, in full uniform, of the fire brigades.
The Rev J.C.ECLES conducted the funeral service in a most impressive manner. As showing the respect in which the deceased was held, it may be stated that among those who followed his remains to the grave were representatives of every shade of belief in religion and politics.

A small detached cottage was destroyed by fire this morning at DAVENPORT. It was owned by Mr PARR of AUCKLAND, and was occupied by an old couple named RANDALL. The house was in flames when discovered, and the occupants got out just in time. The insurance is unknown.
A fire broke out at 4.30 this morning to a fruiterer's shop next door to the Victoria Hotel in lower Palmerston Street, leased by Mrs FRANKLYN, which destroyed also the hotel and the Salvation Army barracks. Other buildings in the vicinity were scorched, also FLEMING'S draper shop opposite slightly. The efforts of the people with buckets and hand fire-engine prevented the fire from spreading to the other buildings in the block.
At the adjourned inquest on John CONLON, the evidence of Constable MACKAY showed that Mr SKEY'S report stated that the arsenic was found in large quantities in the liver, stomach, and intestines, which had been submitted to him.
On June 6th deceased's wife purchased some "Rough-on-Rats," saying she required it to poison the rats.
On June 14th CONLON died in terrible agony. At first Mrs CONLON denied the purchase, but subsequently admitted the purchase after her husband asked her to get some poison for the rats and cats. She said he spread it on bread and butter, though she did not see him do so.
Mrs CONLON was arrested last night on a charge of wilful murder.
The inquest on the body of John BONLON, a young man who died suddenly at Kumara, was resumed yesterday. In the meantime while waiting for the Government analyst Mr SKEY'S report, the deceased's wife, a young woman aged 20, has been arrested on suspicion of poisoning her husband.

LETTER to the Editor
THE TUG O'-WAR
Sir, Sir William Temple once said that man must exercise, fast, take physic, or be sick. I have tried fasting (between meals), and it does not answer. I have taken physic, and it has made me sick; but now I have found out the exact thing to suit my complaint, and intend henceforth to practise the tug-o'-war daily.
I worked out the programme going home the other night. I can be done by horse power if I cannot ensure any fat publicans to join me in the exercise. You simply attach a rope to the hind leg of a mule in a biggish paddock, sit it in a noose hole and hold on.
Don't forget to bring some sawdust and a few lemons. Practise as an anchor first, and when the flesh is reduced try a simple hand grip, then go to business.
I leave the suggestion open to the public for a few days, it being altogether my own idea. I shall feel delighted to some and take notes for any enthusiast who may feel disposed to try it.
From my point of view the tug o'-war is most exciting. The contests of strength are carried out in the friendliest possible manner, and I trust Napier will not be behind, as the promoters have done their level best to ensure success.- I am, &c.,

Tenders close with the Wairoa County Council for sundry works 2 and with Mr A D.CRAWFORD, Hatuma, Waipukurau for fencing.
In connection with the sad fatality yesterday on the railway line, there appears to be good reason to suppose that it was due to the cowcatcher of the engine extending a long way over the metals. Mr C.H.EDWARDS, who from his constantly being at the gasworks is a good judge of the dangers of this crossing, some time ago he wrote to the Municipal Council on that question. The body drew the attention of the railway authorities to the matter, but nothing was done to remedy what was complained of. It will be remembered that a year or two ago Mr T.R.HARDING narrowly escaped death at the same crossing, being caught by the cowcatcher of a train which he did not hear approaching.

SPEEDY and PILLENS marriage
A Wellington correspondent writes as follows are date June 28th, 1892: -
"A very pretty and interesting wedding was solemnised in St. Andrew's Church, Wellington, on Monday, the 27th of June, at 1 p.m., when Miss Keren Happuck, second daughter of Mr John SPEEDY, of Burn View, Hawke's Bay, was united to Mr Hugh Handyside PILLENS, second son of Mr James PILLENS, of Seton Place Edinburgh, and late of Hawke's Bay.
The Rev C.S.OGG officiated, and his beautiful church was well filled with guests and friends, among whom I noticed several from Napier and other parts of Hawke's Bay.
The bride entered the church accompanied by her brother Mr Bruce SPEEDY, and followed by the groomsman Mr POYNTON, and Miss Diana SPEEDY, chief bridesmaid. The bride looked extremely pretty in a claret and grey tweed travelling dress and the fashionable French toque hat to match. The bridesmaids were in corresponding dresses.
By request of the bridegroom the pre-arranged choral service was omitted, much to the disappointment of Mr OGG, with whom the bride had been always a great favourite. The service was therefore rendered very brief and solemn.
The waiting carriages conveyed the wedding party to the residence of Mrs BRUCE, grandmother of the bride, where the usual wedding luxuries were partaken of, and thence to the steamer TALUNE, where the happy pair took leave of their many friends, who all joined in wishing them a long happy and prosperous life. I need hardly add that the bride's presents were numerous."

Wee indebted to Mr Thomas R. MOORE, Waimarama for particulars of the rainfall for the six months ending the 30th June in that district.
To-day has been a gala day at the WAIPATU pa, both for natives and pakehas. In the morning there were various sports, including foot-races for men, women, and children. A tug-of-war between members of the Assembly and a picked native team was won by the former after an eight minutes' pull.
A race for native members over forty years of age was won by Mr PEHI, member for the Bay of Islands. The other competitors were: - Mete KINGI, KEREAMA POTU, and TAIKAWA.
Major KEMP'S fine band contributed greatly to the enjoyment of all by their spirited playing, which did equal credit to the players and their band-master, Mr EVANS.
In the course of the proceedings Major KEMP threw down a bundle of notes and a bag of sovereigns for distribution among the assembled natives. Of course the great event was the haka, which was danced by about 60 natives, male and female. The former were garbed in kilts of Turkey red, and the latter wore white shifts and native mats which gave them a very picturesque appearance. On they came six deep; then they formed in lines with fuglemen and wahines at the ends, the latter being armed with spears and meres. Their shouting and gesticulations are impossible to describe.
Between the "acts" the dancers crouched upon the ground while one of the leaders recited an appropriate "local" relative to the Treaty of Waitangi or the proceedings of the Assembly. Then they, alt sprang up and sang the chorus. One orator, TUTANIHONIHO, made frequent and eloquent appeals to the Treaty flag to look down upon them and direct them as to some way of getting relief from their burdens. The leader of the ladies of the ballet (a fine specimen of a native) was simply delightful, his fantastic poses and airs and graces being such as would have done credit to a French opera dancer.
After a long performance the performers danced off amid the plaudits of the spectators, both native and European. I should mention that the exhibition, although well worth paying to see, was gratuitous, the majority of the natives having outvoted those who wished to a make a charge.
I am informed that the only work done in the assembly since Saturday has been the engrossing and signing of the bills to be presented in the house, viz., the Native School Bill, the bill for abolishing the Native Land Courts, and the bill for prohibiting the granting of publican's licenses on Native lands, There are also a covenant binding all tribes to work together for the general good and the support of the Treaty of Waitangi, and another for a levy among the natives as stated in one of my former letters.

Josiah GOODE was a married man, and had a wife living, and in august 1877, he made a will in favour of his wife, but immediately afterwards left his wife and went away from Dubbo, where he had been farming, with Madame ROLAND, an actress.
For some years he lived at Richmond, Victoria, where it was here that he died in 1880, after having made a will in November, 1879, in favour of Madame ROLAND.
The executrix applied to the court for probate, and though the will was contested by the testator's wife, probate was granted. Two days after Madame Roland had given evidence in the case of the Probate Court in Sydney, she died.
In February last a commercial traveller named Maurice BARNETT, residing in MELBOURNE, purchased a bundle of "Young Ladies Journals" from a second hand bookstall in the Eastern Market, Melbourne.
The journals were tied up in a bundle and formed a complete volume for 1879. BARNETT took the books home, and a few days afterwards commenced to read them. On opening the July number he came across a parchment document, and on examining it, found that it was a will created by Josiah GOODE in 1880 and signed by two attesting witnesses.
BARNETT advertised the discovery, and was communicated with by a solicitor
of SYDNEY, to whom he forwarded the document, which turned out to be a
will made in April 1880, by GOODE. The widow of Josiah GOODE at once commenced
proceedings to revoke the former will, and these were commenced before
Mr Justice MANNING last will.

Two maintenance cases
Alexander GILLIES charged with disobeying an order of the Court to pay 10s per week towards the support of his son, Francis Robert GILLIES.-Mr DINWIDDIE appeared in support of the information-Mr LASCELLES for defendant. The defence admitted that order had been disobeyed but urged that the lad in whose favour the order was made was not defendant's son. Mr DINWIDDIE contended that Mr GILLIES had already been in gaol twice for not complying with the order was sufficient proof that the child was his. Case was adjourned bail was allowed.
Other case was James GRAY, represented by Sir William WASTENEYS, unsuccessfully applied for the cancellation of an order of the Court that he should support his wife, May GRAY, for whom Mr SHEATH appeared. The cancellation was asked for on the ground that GRAY was willing to provide his wife with a comfortable home, and that she was not a destitute person. The evidence was to the effect that although the parties had been married eight years they had never lived together. They had a disagreement on their marriage day, and so it was alleged, the wife kicked the husband out of doors. It was stated that Mrs GRAY had property and Mr GRAY could barely support himself. Mr SHEATH urged that sufficient reasons for cancellation of the order had not been shown, and the Resident Magistrate was of the same opinion, the application being dismissed.

Our Hastings correspondent writes under yesterday's date:-
A deep gloom was cast over Hastings this morning by the announcement of the death of Mrs HOBBS, the wife of our much-respected clergyman, which took place about midnight. She, as well as Mr HOBBS and other members of the family had been suffering from influenza, but last week she had so far recovered that one might have hoped that many years of a happy and useful life lay before her. Unhappily, however, she suffered a relapse which in a short time proved fatal.
Her bright nature and genial manners, her tact, ready sympathy and helpfulness, eminently fitted her for the position of a clergyman's wife, and endeared her to all who knew her; but only those who enjoyed the privilege of her intimate acquaintance, and who mourn her as a friend, can fully realise the extent of the loss which Mr HOBBS has suffered. The deepest sympathy is expressed by all classes for him and his young family.

Messrs MORGAN, POMARE, and T. TAWHAI, three Maori students at Te AUTE College, who have been on a walking tour round the pas of the district (including those of the Hau Hau natives at TONGOIO) have returned to Napier.
These young men, actuated by noble motives, have dedicated their holidays and talents to help forward the sanitary, social, and religious amelioration of their race. To that end they went on foot to every pa in the district, preaching, lecturing on elementary social and sanitary truths, and conversing with the Maoris on any matter likely to affect their welfare.
It is pleasing to add that these young men met with a good reception, even from the Hau Haus, and that consequently there is a probability of much good resulting from their efforts.

The rich agricultural land in the Forty-Mile Bush has attracted the attention of a well-known London firm (Messrs J.W. DOTTRIDGE and Co., whose Wellington agent is Mr Herbert CHESTER.
Mr CHESTER has arranged with the farmers to erect a creamery at Balance and Makakahi, and a central factory at Mangatonoko. He also intends extending his operations on the Napier and Palmerston (Manawatu) line next season, as also the Foxton and Rangitikei districts.
These creameries, which have been specially designed by Mr. A.H.WILSON, who is one of the best dairy engineers in the colonies, will be lofty buildings, with 18ft walls and concrete floors.
The machinery which has been specially arranged by Mr WILSON will consist of new De Laval's Alpha separators, 180 and 320 gallons per hour, box churns and circular butter workers driven by high-pressure engines, with multi-tubular boilers specially designed and speeded by the engineer.
By means of a special arrangement the whole of the roofs can be immediately floods, and the temperature kept uniform throughout the buildings. A cool storage chamber will be built at the main factory, where arrangements have been made for storing 50 tons of butter, if required.
Mr CHESTER and his syndicate will this season handle the produce of close on 2000 cows, which will produce about 200 tons of butter per annum, and next year he intends doubling this. The distributing power amongst the small settlers will be close on ?25.000 for milk alone for the first, and ?50,000 the second year. It is to be hoped that Mr CHESTER will meet with the encouragement his enterprise deserves.-POST
BROWN-HUNTER-On July 6th, at St Mark's Remuera, AUCKLAND, by the Rev
Isaac RICHARDS, John Hunter BROWN, of Bonnan, Dumfrieshire, SCOTLAND (Whakaki),
to Elsie Marion HUNTER, youngest daughter of the late John Agrippa HUNTER,
This has been a sad day for us, for we have had to attend the funeral of Mrs HOBBS, who might well be called "the friend of the parish," Whose aid and counsel were ready for all who were in trouble or sorrow, who had a kind word for every one, who was full of the "charity which thinketh no evil," and whose large-hearted hospitality made her home a centre of brightness. Moreover, Mr HOBBS has so identified himself with his parishioners, that his sorrow is theirs.
Early this morning a large number of the parishioners attended the celebration of Holy communion, after which the coffin, which was decorated with beautiful flowers and wreaths, was borne into the church by members of The GYMNASTIC Club.
The funeral service was read by the bishop of WAIAPU and Canon St. HILL, and after the singing of the hymn "Jesus Lives" (A. and M., 140), the latter gave an appropriate and touching address. In a few simple sentences he described the loss that all had sustained.
This common loss, he said, should bind yet more strongly together pastor and people, and all should resolve that the works of usefulness to which Mrs HOBBS had devoted herself should not be suffered to languish, but be carried on with the increased zeal. And then individually, each should lay to heart the personal lessons to be learned, and strive to emulate the example of self denial of which, following in her Lord's steps, their departed friend had set the constant example.
The best tribute to the estimation in which the deceased lady was held the unanimity with which all, irrespective of Creed or position, joined in the funeral cortege. Besides the hearse walked the churchwardens and vestrymen of St. MATTHEW'S; after it came the boys of the HERETAUNGA School, to whom Mr HOBBS kindly acts as instructor of the Bible; then the deceased lady's Bible class, who were followed by members of the Gymnastic Club, which Mr HOBBS founded, then came a line of about 25 carriages, besides horsemen and people on foot.
At the grave I saw the following clergymen and ministers: -

INQUIRY ASKED FOR.
Sir,-I have this day come out of the Napier Hospital, after a successful operation by Dr. SPENCER and Dr. MENZIES.
The operation is what is known as trepanning, necessary in consequence of a portion of the skull being depressed through fracture and pressing upon the brain. I have been doctored outside the hospital for seven or eight years, but all the doctors treated me wrongly.
Dr SPENCER found out that my illness was due to depression of part of the skull, and he and Dr. MENZIES removed the cause and cured me. I wish to return hearty thanks for what has been done for me, both by doctors and nurses. Owing to my illness, and my head getting wrong at the time, preventing me from recovering wages due to me at the time, I ran out of Court Captain Cook, A.O.F.
I desire to be reinstated, but am debarred even the right to state my case to the Court and get a fair hearing. I think Foresters all over the district ought to consider this a matter that interests them, as none of us know how soon a similar trouble may overtake others. All I ask is an inquiry.
I am, &c.

Hawke's Bay Herald 1892 July 15 page 2 Editorial Home Elections
During yesterday the cables brought the names of 60 seats disposed of in connection with the Home elections, together with the names of the successful candidates. Of those 60 seats the Gladstonians secured 33 and the Unionists 27. Out of the former number no fewer than twelve can be boasted of by the Gladstonians as won from their opponents, who only succeeded in wrestling three seats from the Gladstonians. The list of seats named is still considerably behind the numbers cabled, as according to the latter 521 seats are now disposed of, the Unionists still having a alight lead. But confining ourselves to the seats named, and therefore identifiable, we get a total of 475 seats. Of those the Unionists have secured 245 seats and the Gladstonians 221, leaving the former a majority of 24. It is tantalising that we have not got the full returns, as there seams little or no room to doubt that the Unionist majority would then be only fourteen, however, our analysis can only proceed upon the details furnished, and they give the results we have stated, viz, 245 Unionists end 221 Gladstonians returned. The following are the details:-

THE EXPERIENCES OF AN ANCHOR.
DEER SURR,-1 have bin unfortunate enough to be saized wid the tug-of-warr faver. Would you, surr, or any of your readers like to hear me experiences?
It come about in this way. Some of the air-brained bhoys in the same respected firrm as mesilf, in a moment of wakeness, issued a challenge to a rival firrm, the bhoys thinking they had a soft thing on and could lick 'em aisy. So makin' arrangemints with Mishther Dalton we met one night this wake, at the Gaiety Tbeaytur, to bring off the famous tug-of-warr-bad cess to it.
The bhoys bekase I happined to carry a little more bafe, owin' to me usual good timper, made me the anchorr. I was inshtructed by sum of the knowin' wuns to twisht a thing that sum of 'em called a rope, but which I called a ship's cable, twice round me unfortunit body, and then, jammin' me ligs down betune two battins. .I was riddy for action.
The uppermost thoughts in me mind was the worrds of the ould woman whin I lift home, "Billy me bhoy." says she, "you're a fule, and what's worse you're an ould fule. Is it not worrk enough you're gittin' in the day toime, and early in the morning wid the cows ?' While I was thinkin' this the reporrt of the pishtol and an all powerful twisht on the rope round mc diafram convinced me that the ould woman was right.
The bloodthirsty writches at the other end of the rope had no feelin's
for an ould man loike me, and gave another pull, and I flit me waist going
just loike an egg biter. I called out 1oud for hilp. "It's hurtin'
me, undo me ligs," for somehow me ligs had got twishted up wid. the
battins, but the unfaling response was that no-one must interfare wid
the game. And thin addin insult to injury, I heard the opposition anchor
addressin' me as "Ould Snowball." Says ha "Yer seem, matey,
But it's little I felt loike it. I couldn't shpake, or I'd a tould him so, for dear surr, I can assure you It was at this toime that I filt me inside, being shqueezed up into ma throat, and me eyes was as full of shtars as the hivins. While in this dishperate shtate our tame received another all powerful pull which landed me clane over the backs of three or four ov 'em.
I thought me lasht day had cum, and remember no more until I was picked up an insinsible mass. Since thin the bhoys has perswaded me to take part in the nixt pull on Monday night, but I'll no more be anchor-no more lovin' embraces from a boa conshtrictor for me. Eh!

WAIPAWA Correspondent, writing of Saturday says: -
A serious accident occurred at POUKAWA last night on the arrival of the train leaving Napier at 4.20 p.m. Just as the train was pulling up, and before it had quite stopped, Mr Allen CAMPBELL stepped off, but fell under the guard's van with his left leg entangled in the axle box beneath, his back against the platform, and was dragged a short distance.
Guard JULL, Mr J.GILBERD, and other passengers hastened to extricate him, which was not done without difficulty, as they had to push the van back some yards. It was then found that his left ankle was broken. Mr Hugh CAMPBELL, his brother, arranged to have the injured man taken to his house, and at TE AUTE a wire was sent to Dr. LINNEY, of Hastings. This morning the patient was reported on favourably.
Mr RUSSELL, late of PATEA, arrived last evening to take Mr J. MATHESON'S place in the Bank of New Zealand.

HBH 1892 July 19 4 FEMALE FRANCHISE
I am informed by a member of the Legislative Council who was one of the strongest opponents of female franchise last session that the council will pass the clause in the Electoral Bill giving the franchise to women.
My informant states that his views on the question have been considerably modified since last year, and that although he has not quite made up his mind whether or not he will vote for the extension of the franchise to women he will at any rate not vote against it.
He considers that whilst on the one hand female franchise will go in the direction of extending the one-man-one-vote principle by swelling the votes of the working classes who possess the voting power in the present Parliament, on the other hand it will ensure the constituencies will not be at the mercy of the floating population but that the franchise will be exercised by the wives and daughters of the genuine settlers of the colony.
The position of the Council is, however, somewhat peculiar as last year 32 Councillors voted-15 for female franchise and 17 against.
Of the 15 two (Mr FULTON AND Mr MARTIN ) are dead, and two (Mr ACLAND and Mr WILLIAMS) are absent from the colony. Of the 17, two (Mr BOWEN and Mr PEACOCK) are absent, and five of the present members of the Council (Messrs MORRIS, OLIVER, SHEPHARD, STEVENS, and SCOTLAND) did not vote owing to absence and other causes. Of those Mr SHEPHARD is still absent through illness, and assuming the votes go as last year there would remain eleven.
But as that clause will be settled in committee Captain BAILLIE will be in the chair, thus losing one vote for female franchise, and Mr MILLER, who is against it, will be free to vote, not being in the chair as Speaker. This would give 15 against, to 10 for on the last year's basis. But it is said that Sir Patrick BUCKLEY (as having charge of the Government Bill) and Mr WHYTE, as well as one or two others, will not vote against the clause if they do not vote for it, and that in effect it will be allowed to be carried by a majority of one or two with the aid of the Government.

The Hawke's Bay Waste Land Board met yesterday
Mr J. TAIT, Nuhaka-applying to purchase a small piece of road of road reserved for the purpose of erecting a sheep dip thereon-To be offered at auction.
Mr F.C.LITTLE wrote stating that his lease of a piece of land, 28 acres, 3 roods in area, would shortly expire, and he asked that either that the land should be put up for sale by auction or that it should be re-released to him at an increased rental to be fixed by the board-Mr HALL said that the section was a piece of good land and Mr HOLDER had done nothing particular to improve it, and it would be better for the Board to keep the land. It might become very valuable.
Mr HALL was then asked and said he (Commissioner) wondered whether Mr HALL was a member of the Road Board? Because it sometimes happened that Road Boards cast longing eyes on nice little pieces of land such as Mr HOLDER had leased, and opposed settlers getting them-Mr HALL only spoke in the interests of the Public interest.
Mr M'GREEVY attended in person to explain his position with regard to a small grazing run of 930 acres he had leased on perpetual lease system.
It appeared from his explanation and statement made by the Commissioner that the applicant was a hard-working respectable young man with a wife and small family and he had practically no capital. He applied to take up 700 acres of land in the Nuhaka district, but as the piece he applied for was of a peculiar shape, he had to take up 230 acres more, or else take none, making the total area of his selection 940 acres. He had to pay £50 odd for survey fees, for a start, and with that and rest he paid £103 to the government.
The Commissioner kindly told him that it would be a pity to lose all
he had paid, and advised him to ask the Board to grant him an extension
of time or else to allow him to find somebody who would purchase his interest
in the land.-Extension of time was grant by the Board for carrying out
the improvements, and also that if the applicant would transfer within
a reasonable time the board would waive the non-completion of the improvements.
