The men had fallen a distance of 55 feet. Arnold was killed outright, and Terry (who was the foreman) received concussion of the brain, dying in the hospital to-night.

DRUNKENNESS IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
DRUNKENNESS IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA; ^ BECExrLY we had occasion to refer to disparaging remarks made by a South Australian legislator in London with regard to his own colony. To-day we wish to direct attention to some reflections passed on South Australians by a gentle man who not long ago paid a visit to the province. A cablegram we have re ceived irom juonaon states tnac at a tare well demonstration In that city the Rev. F. Hastings, who Ib coming to the colony as pastor of the North Adelaide Con gregational Church, the Rev. Dr. Hannay said ' there was undoubtedly scope for the new pastor in Adelaide, and he would find In his new sphere that the teetotal cause vras carried on with enthu siasm. The Bpeaker felt, however, com pelled to admit that wine drinking was a serious blot on South Australian life.' The Inference to be drawn from these remarks Is that South Australia presents a field for the energies of temperance advocates of a rather extraordinary character. MoBt people will read...
COMPOSITORS' STRIKE IN [?]RISBANE. THE DAILY PRESS AFFECTED. Brisbane, April 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
COMPOSITORS' STRIKE IN 1RISBANE. THE DAILY PRESS AFFECJTEn. (By Teleerranh.i Brisbane. Anril ± The threatened strike in the printing trade was brought to a head this after noon, when the compositors on the Teh graph ar.d Observer (evening papers) aban doned their frames at 5 o'clock. The Courkr compositors declined work to night, and their action Is regarded as a bieach of faith, as an intimation con veyed to tiie master printers early last wt,tk was that unless a settlement was arrived at tbe men would be called out on Friday morning. The Courier pro prietors are therefore placed at a disadvantage, but they are making' en deavors to publish to-morrow as goc^l a paper as possible under the circum stances. The Telegraph has secured about 12 caen, and it Is believed will have little difficulty in publishing a four or six page paper. There will be some trouble in bringing out the Week, which is pub lished from the Telegraph office ; but a Dumber of men are engaged to-night In printing ...

VICTORIAN MINISTERIAL CHANGES. [By Telegraph.] Melbourne, April 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
VICTORIAN MINISTERIAL CHANGES. fBv Teleersnh.1 Melbourne. April 4. Several changes In the Cabinet are re ported. Sir Jas. Lorioaer, the Minister of Defence, will retire from that position and take a portfolio without office, while Mr. Bell, one of the representatives of the Government in the Legislative Council for tbe last three Tears, will encr.ead him as political head of the Defence Department. Mr. Nimmo, tbe Minister of Public Works, -will take a portfolio without office and will be succeeded by Mr. D. M. Davies. Mr J. B. Paterson will be the Dew Minister of Customs and probably of Mines also. The other members of the Ministry will retain their respective port folios.

OUR DEFENCES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
OUR DEFENCES. The Chinese used to mount wooden gatu upon their battlements to frighten away - invaders. How far this innocent device succeeded we cannot venture to say, but only a very foolish enemy would be taken in by it. A scarecrow system of defence will not suffice for South Australia, Oar defenee arrangements must, so far as thay go, be complete and effective, and not a dangerous sham. The enemy will know pretty well with what sort of a f oree he has to reckon, and it depends upon our selves whether or not It 1b one ha will respect. The present position is ad mittedly unsatisfactory. A few months ago General Downes made several impor tant statetuente with regard to our military service to which attention may again be profitably directed. First, he Isaerked that the present force is dangerously *ow, : *-« the perilous times in which we live ; secondly, he de ^?P*t3?* .- its~ oort *? e»»sslve ; and, thirdly, he affirmed that the reserve as now formed will never po3sesB a trust w...
ANOTHER MELBOURNE DEFAULTER. Melbourne, April 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
ANOTHEB MELBOURNE DE FAULTER. [By Telegraph.! Melbourne, April 4. Henry J. Mouritz, 38 years of age, well known in the city as an accountant, was arrested late this afternoon charged with embezzling moneys of the Melbourne Hydraulic Power Company. The total defalcations are nearly £2,000 The accused is a aotr of the secretary of the Harbor Trust. He will appear at the Uity Police Court to-morrow. The com pany was floated In April, 1888, and Mouritz was appointed secretary at £200 a year. In consequence of the accused, failing to get a balance-sheet ready for the half-yearly meeting in February he was suspended, and an examination of the books showed a deficiency of £1,822. The amount was taken without an attempt at concealment from the second call made on the shareholders, and paid to the ac count of the accused Instead'- of the com pany. In consequence of the defalcations the company were unable to declare a dividend. ?
Original Articles. LORD KINTORE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
®pgwal Jlttttl£0. LORD KINTORS. jtv&BXiEniG connected with, the new Go Tenor of Sooth Australia la j uat now of peculiar Interest. A perfectly natural feeling of cariosity prevails as to his views, character, and abilities. From many quarters such accounts have been Gent aa to create a strong prepossession in his favor, and his address to his tenantry 'which we publish elsewhere Is calculated id deepen that impression. The occasion was in itself likely to elicit the kindliest feelings on the part of all concerned, and ' the report of the proceedings chows that there was a good deal of genuine enthusiasm. The relations between Lord and Lady Kintora and their tenantry appear to be of a very pleasant and cordial nature, and this augurs well for those which will shortly be eBtabliBhed between our new Governor and his wife and the people of South Australia. Human nature Is pretty much the same all the world over, and the qualities which have won esteem In Aber deen and Kincardine...

PLEURO-PNEUMONIA PREVEN TIVES. HBv TeleeraDh.l Brisbane, April 4. Ahe report made by Dr. Uernontand M, Loir, M. Pasteur's representatives, to the Queensland Government on the subject of the protection of cattle against pleuro pneumonia, states that thus far they have been unable to Isolate and cultivate the microbe of nleuro-nneumonla. as the process required many tentative researches and a complete laboratory. Arrangements, however, would be endeavored to be made to surmount the difficulty. Another course was open, namely,' inoculation by viruB obtained from diseased lungs. This virus if placed under the skin developes oedema at the point of inoculation, and this if inoculated in the cattle's tall pre vents pleuro.

The Chronicle. SATURDAY, APRIL 6. 1889. THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1889. THE WEATHBK. That never-failing topic of conversation — the weather — ia one that can be dla CDBBed by everyone with a cheerful Inte rest just now. It rarely occurs to a South Australian to grumble 6t the personal dis coinforta oi a wet, cold day. With us, depending as. we do so largely on the pro ductions of the Btbil, the *' trouble of the rein' is a particularly useful one. Water in this colony spells wealth, and drought is a Bjnonym for depression atd disaster. As the barometer falls, the spirits rise. Seldom is the rain ^an unwelcome visitor. Even the citizen, whom the pelting showers drive wet and shivering to the shelter of a verandah, a cab, or a tramcar, consoles himself with the thought that after all the conntry wants the water, and Indirectly all classes mnst share in the blessings that It brings. But to the anxious agriculturist on his farm and the struggling squatter on his run the gift of the clouds possesses a value which they can appreciate ...
SUSPICIOUS DEATH OF A SYDNEY DOMESTIC SERVANT. Sydney, April 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889
SUSPICIOUS DEATH OF A SYDNEY DOMESTIC SERVANT. [By Telegraph. 1 Sydney, April 4. The enquiry regarding the death of the young woman, Lavinla Dines, whose body was exhumed owing to rumors that she had been the victim of malpractices, was resumed to-day. Mr. Hallett, the Govern ment analyst, stated that he had analysed the medicines found in deceased's room, ?which she had taken just prior to her death, and which were, so far as could be ascertained, supplied by the notorious ' Doctor' Smith. In some pills he found the active ingredient to be ' Bavin,' a well-known abottive agent ; and such pills, he eaid. no respectable chemist would sell. Dr. Wilkinson, the demon strator of pathology at the University, gave evidence regarding the post- mortem examination conducted by him on the body-of Dines. Intense general peritonitis was observed, and a perforation was dis covered in the large intestine, the surface also being much ulcerated. He had no doubt that death was caused by perforation o...
