At the Colac Police Court on Friday last Ellen Gamble and Mary Lennon, two well known characters, were each ordered to pay a fine of £5, or in default fourteen days imprisonment, for being drunk and disorderly. As these two dames are unable to pay the fine, they will be taken down to the Geelong gaol this morning. Senior-constable Flahive stated that it was Mrs. Gamble's thirty-third appearance before the Bench, and that Mrs. Lennon had been repeatedly brought up at the Court. The presiding magistrate (Mr. C. Beal) recommended that when next these women were arrested, they should be brought up on a different charge to that of being drunk and disorderly, so that they might be sentenced to a long term of imprisonment. There were no other cases of any importance heard.

EX-SERGEANT PRIEST

PRESENTATION BY CITIZENS.

The esteem in which ex-Sergeant Priest is held by the residents of Ballarat, and particularly by those who resided in the neighborhood of the station he had charge of (Ballarat South), was made evident by the representative gathering at St Patrick's Hall last night to do him honor and make him a presentation. Mr D. C. M'Grath, M.H.R., was in the chair with the guest of the evening on his right.

After the loyal toast had been honored "Parliament" was proposed by Mr J. M. Feery, who expressed his pleasure at having the opportunity of doing honor to ex-Sergeant Priest, who had earned the esteem of the public and the confidence of his superior officers. He believed the members of the State and Federal Legislatures legislated generally in the best interests of the people. He admired the courageous manner in which their Federal member, Mr. D. G. M'Grath, always expressed his opinion. His wish and his ambition was always to work for the people. He had once been a strong opponent of Mr M'Grath, but now it would take something pretty strong to remove him from his side. (Applause.)

Mr M'Grath, in response, said that he was pleased to take part in the gathering, also that he was in a position to respond as the Federal representative for Ballarat. No one had had to fight more bitter political fights than he had, yet he did not think there was an individual in Ballarat he was not friendly with. As regards politics, Mr Bruce and Dr Earle Page had wedded and gone on their honeymoon, and until they came back no one would know what was coming. (Laughter.) There was great unrest in the old world today. There were more men under arms now than ever. They had had enough of secret arguments, and the people of Australia should require that Mr. Bruce should reveal the nature of what was going to be done at the next Imperial Conference. The world had had enough of war, and the party for which he stood would say to Mr Bruce that if he entered into any secret agreement regarding the construction of ships or increase of armaments, the Labor party, when it got into power, would cancel that agreement. It was not right to talk of spending millions on armament when the old-age pensioners had to exist on a paltry 15/ a week. His party would clearly and strongly express at no distant date its opinion regarding expenditure on preparation for war.

Mr M'Grath, in proposing the health of Sergeant Priest said that it spoke well for the manner in which Mr Priest had carried out this duties that so many representative citizens had met to do him honor. Sergeant Priest had put in 37 years in the service, and it was their wish that he should live long to enjoy his pension. Regarding superannuation, if there was one section of the public service entitled to a retiring allowance, it was the members of the police, who very often had to risk their lives in protecting the lives and properties of the citizens (Hear, hear.) He had much pleasure in presenting ex-Sergeant Priest with a cheque, as a memento of the esteem in which he was held by the citizens of Ballarat. Mr Priest had been a good Government officer, a good citizen, and had set an example to younger members of the force which they would do well to copy. (Applause.)

Mayor Elsworth, in support, expressed his pleasure at joining in the congratulations to ex-Sergeant Priest on having done his duty. He was not a man that should be laid aside, as there was a lot of usefulness in him yet. He thought it was only right that some provision should be made by those in authority for the later years of those who had served the Government and the people faithfully and well. It was a necessity, also, to see that our school teachers received a fair deal. Years ago it was a poorly paid profession, and those in it did not receive a proper return for the onerous service they rendered to the country. It was very pleasant to meet men of the type of ex-Sergeant Priest, men who did their duty fearlessly and yet tactfully. They knew what Mr Priest's record was. It must be good, or the gathering of that night would not have taken place. (Applause.)

Mr L. Lederman said that in doing honor to Mr Priest they were doing honor to the whole of the police force. Offences against the law were less common in Ballarat than in any other provincial centre in Australia. This was as due to the unseen work of the police force, due to the work of the men who were preventers of crime, and not makers of it. As a member of the Benevolent Home Committee he could say that the work of alleviating distress which devolved on members of the committee was greatly helped by members of the police force like ex-Sergeant Priest. He had been always a kindly friend to those needing a helping hand. (Hear, hear.)

Mr J. Lyons said that probably no other man in the room had come more in contact with ex-Sergeant Priest during the past 40 years than he had. He hoped that Mr and Mrs Priest would live long to enjoy the Sergeant's well-earned rest. (Applause.)

Mr J. Kirby remarked that Mr Priest possessed that essential qualification for a member of the force. He was most tactful. He congratulated Mr Priest on being able to throw off the shackles of officialdom and take a well-earned rest.

Ex-Sergeant Priest, in reply, thanked them all for the handsome presentation and for their kindly remarks. He had tried to do his best for the Department, for the public and for the men under him. He was pleased to learn that his efforts had been appreciated. He had been 36 years in the force, 20 of which had been spent in Ballarat. He liked Ballarat so well he intended to settle down here. (Hear, hear).

Mr. Con Loftus announced at this stage that Mr McGrath and the Mayor had to leave. In thanking Mr McGrath for presiding he said that Mr McGrath was right in saying that he thought that notwithstanding his many hot political campaigns he could meet everyone on level ground and as a friend. He desired also to thank the Mayor for honoring ex-Sergeant Priest with his attendance though the toast was a little bit out of order he proposed "The Chairman and the Mayor," because of the necessity for those gentlemen leaving them at this stage.

Mr McGrath and Mayor Elsworth briefly responded.

Mr J. Fraser presented the ex-Sergeant with a kookaburra diamond and pearl brooch for Mrs Priest and in doing so paid a tribute to the work of the ex-Sergeant in his capacity as an officer of the force and as a citizen. His remarks were supplemented by Messrs J. Cooney, F. T. Kierce, and G. H. Trekardo.

During the evening vocal items were contributed by Messrs Longenbacher and H. R. Roberts and a story was related by Mr F. T. Kierce. The accompaniments were played by Mr Bert. Humphries.

Mr. Con. Loftus carried out the secretarial duties with his customary tact and ability.

The catering was in the hands of Mr Alf. Haymes.

BLENHEIM'S FIRST GOLDEN WEDDING.
FAMILY AND RESIDENTS HONOUR MR. AND MRS. JACKWITZ.

LAIDLEY, August 23. A pleasant function took place at the residence of Mr. F. Kowaltzke, Blenheim, on Saturday, August 4. The event was the celebration of the golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Jackwitz.

The function was organised as a surprise by their son and daughters, Mr. F. Jackwitz, Mrs. H. Hauschildt, Mrs. H. Wegner, and Mrs. F. Kowaltzke. The bridal party were met by members of the Lilydale Band, about half a mile from the residence. The band escorted the happy couple to the accompaniment of appropriate music. On arrival they were met by their children and grandchildren, and friends, and cameras were used. On arrival each guest was presented with a blue and gold rosette, as a memento of the occasion. It was the first golden wedding celebrated at Blenheim.

At noon the bridal couple and guests adjourned to the verandah, where the tables were laid. They were beautifully decorated with golden-coloured flowers and streamers, the work of the old couple's grandchildren. In front of the "bride and bridegroom" was a very handsome two-tier wedding cake, which was made by their daughter, Mrs. Hauschildt, and iced and decorated in white and gold by their grandchild, Miss Hilda Hauschildt.

Rev. W. K. Holmans presided. He expressed his pleasure at being present on such a happy occasion, congratulating the bride and bridegroom on having attained the 50th anniversary of their wedding day. The toast, "The Bride and Bridegroom," was proposed by Mr. F. Blake, and supported by Cr. T. L. Moon. Mrs. Heinrich, of Kalbar, was asked to make a presentation to the happy couple from their children. She congratulated the happy couple, and feelingly referred to Mrs. Jackwitz's kindness to her in the early years of her work at Blenheim. She also apologised for the absence of Rev. J. Heinrich. Mr. F. Topp, on behalf of himself and other members of the band, thanked the promoters for their kind invitation. In the course of the afternoon the band played selections, which were appreciated by the company. The evening was spent in games and community singing, and at the end all sang "For They Are Jolly Good Fellows."

EARLY DAYS. Mr. Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Jackwitz was born at Breslau (Germany) on August 15, 1860. At the age of 18 years, he set sail from Hamburg with his parents in the German sailing ship, "Herschel," and after 16½ weeks' sailing the first land he saw was Maryborough, Queensland. After staying at Maryborough for a short time the family went to Brisbane, and from there to Tarampa. After living there for three years, they removed to Blenheim, known at that time as Sandy Creek. They were amongst the first pioneers.

In 1888 Mr. Jackwitz took up a selection of 76 acres on the western side of Sandy Creek. In 1884 be married Miss Bertha Schroder, of Tarampa, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Thos. Nock, Methodist Minister.

Mrs. Jackwitz and her parents arrived in Brisbane from Germany 69 years ago. After living at Oxley Creek, Brisbane River, for a short period, they took up a selection at Tarampa.

When Mr. Jackwitz first came to Laidley there was only one hotel (Chambers's), one store (Glesman's), Mr. H. Head's blacksmith shop, and Mr. P. Nielsen, saddler.

Mr. Jackwitz was a bootmaker by trade, but he took on farming, and with his wife had to fell the scrub, plant their crops with a hoe, make their own road to their property, and cart their produce to market, three bags at a time, in a wooden trolley made by himself. The lowest price he received for maize was 9d. a bushel. They had also to carry their water in buckets for three miles.

He was a great lover of band music, and was a foundation member of the first and only brass band formed at Blenheim-by Mr. C. Cross. He was also band conductor for a period, and the band played for Church functions, the show, and sports.

He was a foundation member of the first Baptist Church, which was built on his father's property, and in conjunction with Mr. C. Mutzleberg, opened the first Baptist Sunday School, being Superintendent of the school, and choir conductor for several years. He still takes a keen interest in the work of his Church.

The children living are one son and three daughters, 21 grandchildren, one great grandchild. One son died 18 years ago. Mr. Jackwitz has five brothers--Messrs. Herman (Tarampa), Wilhelm (Coominya), Albert (Forest Hill), Otto and Paul (Blenheim).
