THE AUTUMN SHOW. OPENING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 8 March 1901
the -Autumn show. OPENING DA Y. The annual Autumn Show of the Royal iA.Krienltural and Horticultural Society was opened in Rlorious weather at. the Jubilee Exhibition Buildings and Grounds on itoursday. Air. Creswell was auite pleased, because he was able to report a record Rate for the opening day. The arangements were most perfectly carried out. the decorations were a feature of the main hall, the cater ing was all that could be desired, and the show itself was ncrhatcs the best that has yet been held. Miserable croakers, who are ever runniujr down South Australia, should po to this exhibition and see the wonderful display of fruit, flowers, and vegetables, and then perhaps they would alter their tune. Finer grapes could not be seen the world over. As Mr. Kingston said at the lun cheon, 'There were grapes on exhibition that would be a credit to any table in the .world, and they would be worth thousands of pounds to Australia if they could only be placed in the shop windows at Picc...

VICTORIA. MELBOURNE. March 7. liic- Bible Christian Church Conference, which is sitting at BalJarat, passed a re solution to-day condemning matrimonial agencies, as bcine decidedly inimical to the morality of the marriage state and the social well-being of the community.

Tlie little fellow had three fingers of his right hand blown otf and received a great shock. Mr. Thomas, his grandfather, had a narrow escape, as he was struck on the right cheek. At Berringa to-day n two-year-old daugh ter of a resident named McKenzie fell into a well, 7 feet deep, which was fuh1 of water, and the body was only discovered by a little dog, which attracted attention by scratching beside the well.

ANGLO-COLONIAL NOTES. [From our Special Correspondent] LONDON, February 1. AUSTRALIA'S EEMIESENTATIVES AT. TUE QUEEN'S FUNERAI/ Tlie 'Times' of Monday last published a_ balf-column cable message from Sydney giving full abstracts of the appreciative re marks of Mr. Barton, Sir George Turner, and _ other' Commonwealth 'Ministers con cerning the personal virtues and glorious reign of the late Queen. Other newspapers have also printed long telegrams recording the profound and universal sorrow prevail ing throughout Australia. Special men tiou is made of the memorial services and of the presence of the Indian troops at the Melboutne Exhibition H'all— an act of homageTo the deceased sovereign's memory which is regarded here as peculiarly signi ficant and touching. A painful impression has been created by the conflicting ac- ' counts received respecting the choice of a representative of the Federal Government to attend the obsequies of the deceased monarch, more particularly because of the...

Weidenbofer. Stewards— Messrs. ? H. G. Butterfield and J. H. Rule. _There is again a fine collection of trade displays, and some of the exhibitors must have gone to considerable expense to show their 'wares to such advantage. Visitors to the main hall cannot but be attracted by the handsome display near the eastern entrancej where, the well known ex hibit of Hugo Wertheim takes a prominent position. Greater space -than usual is oc cupied by the firm, and- is the more con spicuous by the addition :vof particularly handsome banners suspended from gilded bars supported by eight artistically carved and flutod pillars, with each pillar, surmounted by a golden spire. The banners are woven from beautifully 'tinted silks, and are- lettered in gold and,silver set off with deep edgings oi gold. The effect _ ...

FLOWERS. Judges—Messrs. P. Somerville, G-. Hili burn, .\I. Cullen, J. Pieraon, 3. C. Sterining, and VV. 0. Ilackett. Stewards — Messrs. V. 5. Robson and -Ji Smith. The flowers which grace the Exhibition Building on showdays are not born to blush unseen. Their beauty is exhibited to tnou sandd of ad.nriring eyes. To the fair sex the bright jewels of the floral kingdom have at. trattions ever .fresh and bright, and the centre of the hall is really toe iadies' waik. The collection genferaiiy this year is the largest known, and the ordinary accommo dation was not nearly- adequate. The bri dal suites prepared by Messrs.

FRUIT. Judges— Messrs. J. Habbs, T. Hardy, G. ?; bid-, W. Merchant 0; Gfles, and J. H. Cowling. Stewards— Messrs. J. Beggs and J: F. Pascoe. The farmers in the far north may have cried out abont the bad season, but those lower down rejoiced at a bountiful harvest, and the fruitgrowers in the neighbourhood of Adelaide were blessed with overburden ed fruit trees. 'As far as the rain was con cerned, there was nothing extraordinarily favourable a'bout it, but the general condi tions lent themselves to the ? development of clean fruit of attractive appearance and high quality.- This was amply borne out by the display on the benches in the main hall, and in -nothing more bnan'in grapes was the richness of the season made manifest. In lie size of the bunches, the largeness of_ the berries, and tie freedom from any aint, the exhibits excelled- anything which lave -previously' been seen in Adelaide. Every class was particularly fine, the com petition was keen, and the entries nume rous. . In...

No show would now be complete without Carlyon and Thunderbolt.

VEGETABLES. Judges-Messrs. P. M. Merkel, W. Moulds, and T.'Locb. Steward— Mr. C. W. G;lcs. It is scarcely a good time for vege tables. The housewife is complaining that there is not much variety at present, and that what there is is dear; but there seem; ed to be a fine assortment on the tables) still there was not the abundant quantity which is to be seen at some shows in more seasonable ' times. Most of the growers on the plains were unable to compete, and the exhibits came chiefly from the hills, but they proved to be of high order. There was a small 'but excellent collection of po tatoes, those of the kidney class being mag nificent. Oabbages were not up to the usual standard, but the turnips and carrots were first rate. The display of rhubarb .was abant the finest ever seen, Mr. J. Johnson fcikmg the first prize. Beans were an even lot and of excellent duality, while onions were large and firm, and quite up to' the ususl standard. Messrs. Sutton Brothers won the first prize for...

THE NATIONAL PARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 8 March 1901
THE NATIONAL PARK. The Commissioners of the National Park met at &nbsp; the General Post Office on Monday afternoon. There were present Sir Edwin Smith (chairman), Messrs A. McDonald, M.P., A. C. Minchin, W. Gooch, W. Gill, S. Dixon, and M. Holtze. The curator reported that temporary repairs had been effected to most of the fencing destroyed by fire last month, and that the raising and carting of ironstone gravel for road repairs was being pushed ahead in order to have all carting completed before the early rains set in. Samples of iron standards and droppers were inspected, as it was thought ad- visable to erect iron fencing in place of that de- stroyed. It was decided to call for tenders for pulling up about a mile of fencing along the Upper Sturt road. A report of works most urgently re- quired to be carried out to June 30, with approxi- mate cost, was laid on the table; but as a large expenditure was involved the Commissioners de- cided to pay an official visit to the Pa...

THE POWERS AND CHINA. [Received March 8, 2.45 a.m.] THE MANCHURIAN AGREEMENT. ENGLAND'S ADVICE. London, March 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 8 March 1901
THE POWERS AND CHINA. . ? \ [BY SUBMARINE TELEGRAPH.] [Received March 8, 2.45 a.m.] \ THE MANCHURIAN AGREEMENT. ENGLAND'S ADVICE. London. March 7. The 'Standard' announces that the Itusso-Chinese convention hi regard to Manchuria has been finally signed at Moukden, and that the agreement is thus outside the cognisance of. the foreign Ministers at Pekin. The 'Morning Post' declares that Russia has annexed Kin-chan-fu, a railway town near the north-western corner of the Gulf of Liaotong, and claimed the exclusive right to all rail way and industrial concessions in Mon golia as far as Kashgar, a city in Eastern Turkestan, besides insisting upon constructing a direct railway be tween Pekin and Manchuria. Great Britain has advised China to defer the ratification of tlie Manclni rian agreement, and to consult the Powers upon it.
