MR. E. W. HAWKER, M.P. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

MR. E. W. HAWKER, M.P. TO XBK EDUOB. Sir— The remarks of this gentleman in Eng land appear to have provoked not only your disapprobation but also that of 'Chas. M. Muiihead,' a gentleman possibly very oojnpe tent to judge of this colony's past and fntore. Bis object in writing, of course, was a philan thropic one, to ahew bis fellow ornonJats bow hurt he feels with Mr. Hawker. Notoriety, or a desire to see hie autograph figuring in print I am Eure could never have entered his bead. But surely sour sub-leader was enough on so unsavory a subject. It is not a matter to congratulate yon on, it is a matter for sym pathy «ad regret that you were compelled to write as you did. But I doirt think you travelled quite far enough. Iadinemt.as Mr. Hawker undoubtedly was in bringing before the loan markets of the world tbe oon dition of this country, can we shut our eyes to the fact that be was speaking the truth? Every right thicking man shoald say that South Australia's indebtedness to-day, con...

TO TCT STHTOR. Sir— I ehould like to say a word on SeluAu Cocking'a case. The statement that the pro secutor seduced her was never suggested,, waa not proved, and ia false. It was suggested* but denied by him, that be was tbe father of the child, but that was long after she had been a dangerous prostitute, who hu been frequently fined, an inmate of numerous brothels, and a misleader and tempter of innocent litUe girls, whom the police have frequently had to get oat of ber dutches —I am, &c, TRUTH.

THE BLINMAN MINE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

THE BLHSMAN MINE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— In the present state of the copper in dustry, as more particularly affecting share holders of this property in South Australia, I would respectfully direct Mr. Masey's atten tion to the necessity of calling together the registered shareholders, in order that he may explain to them the present financial position of the mine and his intended action in conneo tion with its future development. At the same time be might afford some information respect ing the Wirrialpa property, of which we have heard and read such glowing accounts. — I am, &«,, A SHAREHOLDER. March 26, 1889.

TO THS EDITGS. Six — Although I object to answer anonymous letters in the public press, even when signed *-A Shareholder,' because ths information asked could be obtained by communicating direct with me, or a reference to the progress reports published at the end of eaoh month, I, however, beer to inform vour corresDondent that having obtained an additional water supply at the Biinman mine by cutting the lode at the 80 fathom level I hope the dreBBing machinery will be kept going 10 hours a day, and thus turn out sufficient ore to keep the mine at work even at the present lavr price of copper. At Wirrialp* the small trial smelting furnace is in full blast, and I understand the directors in London are taking steps to form a separate company to purchase this mine, and eo give the shareholders a substantial dividend, and also provide ample working capital to open out the mine on a large scale commensurate with Us merits.— I am, &&, T.

THE FIRE AT MOONTA. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

THE FIRE AT MOONTA. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I have heard of a good deal of con versation having taken place with respect to a delay in sending the Mines' fire engine to the late fire at Moonta. I also notice the same idea has crept into print and has been pretty strongly commented on, showing that if such delay had not taken place a considerable amount of property might have been saved. The facts ate. however, that from the time the meeBenger arrived on the mines conveying the news and word was given for the engine to be Bent but from 10 to 15 minutes elapsed. The time has been variously estimated, but in do case has such been mentioned as being over a quarter of an hour. This is, I think, highly commendable, and itjis no encouragement to the members of the brigade to turn out on a future occasion, if, instead of being a little praised for attending so promptly as was done and working bo hard as we did last Saturday, we get blamed for loss of property through our apathy. — I am, &a...

THE TEACHING OF MATHEMATICS AND PROFESSOR TATE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

THE TEACHING OF MATHEMATICS AND PROFESSOR TATE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — At the last meeting of the council of the School of Mines. Professor Tate said— 'He had had considerable experience bb a teacher, and it went to show that mathematics were more thoroughly taught in the State schools than in the middle-class schools to which Mr. Scberk had referred.' These schools (according to your report) were St. Peter's and Prince Alfred Colleges. As 1 am responsible for a very large part of the teaching of this subject at the latter college, on behalf of my colleagues in this work, and on my own behalf, I cannot allow this statement to pass unchallenged. Profeesor Tate's experience as a teacher of science (not of mathematics, I think) I do not diepnte ; but I dp deny that the profeBsor'is ex perience in teaching physical science gives him any ground for the above comparison. Between the teachingof mathematics in the fctate a jhouiu and the teaching of thiB subject in our colleges there is no fa...

THE SCHOOL OF MINES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

THE SCHOOL OF MINES. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— Ever 9iace the inception of ta9 School of Mines the idea has been pravalent among the residents of this locality that while osten sibly designed to benefit the community gene rally this institution is really intended to be of advantage only to the sons of the wealthy cleefieB. At the last committee meeting evi dence tending to deepen this conviction cropped up in the motion of Professors Renme and Tate, affirming that it is desirable that candidates should be required to oaaa an examination in mathematics pure and simple befoie being admitted into the institution in order to study for its diploma. Apparently this resolution is intended to make - the task of teaching easier and at the eame time render the classes .much more select. There are in the mining tonrns of the Peninsula numbers of intelligent young man (and for the matter of that older ones aleo) who would gladly enrol themselves &b students, and if possible obtain the diploma...

THE AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE FORCES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

THE AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE FORCES. XO IBS EDITO&. Sir— A short tune back I saw iu your columnB the official account of the strength of tbe Militia Force. I observed that a large cumber of men were absent, some with leave, others without leave, to the regret of General Downes. It is a well known faot that numbers of the men are unable to obtain -permanent work near headquarters, and are obliged, with or without leave, to travel in search of work, and thus become throueh lack of ^constant drilling non-efficient, and the battalions be come skeleton battalions. Such a state of affaire as now exists would, in the event of war, prove disastrous to this colony, as the skeleton battalions would be too weak in numbers to protect Adelaide and its surroundings, or successfully resist the attack of a well disciplined and thoroughly efficient force, doubtless assisted with machine guns, which our battalions are destitute of, and tbe guns of the eqnadron operating against the forts, In the ev...

Correspondence. RICHARDSON'S CASE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 6 April 1889

Qomzpovfomt. RICHARDSON'S CASE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — A spectator at the Circuit Court, Port Augusta, the other day, I was forcibly re minded of what a curious thing is law, and of the numerous shapes it is made to assume. As an instance, an unfortunate friendless youth of 17 is charged with forging an order for a pound, He baa been some time out of work, ana has a nrevions rood character. His honor was asked to deal with him under the Minor Offences Act. Instead he expostulates on the enormity of the crime, tells the poor lad 50 years ago in England he would have been hung, and finally gives him 12 months' hard labor— in all probability the means of making him a felon for life. Next a man who was in a responsible poBitioD, in receipt of a substantial salary, with influential friends, surrenders for trial charged with_ embt zzlement. The Crown Prosecutor applies that the case be made a remanet on the ground that his evidence was not complete. Bis honor refuted the application, and th...

§J&bk0' ©olxtmn. FEMININE FASHIONS AND FANCIES. [From cur Lady Correspondent. 1 London, February 15, 1889. '^ The perfection of clothing will surely be attained at length. For some years paat we have pinned our faith exclusively on woollen garments. Numbers of persons, including many eminent physicians, dress entirely in woollen ; and as the smallest combination with cotton is said to deteriorate the. sanitary value of woollen garments, faddists of the masculine persuasion make no exception even in the ease of collars, cuffs, or handkerchiefs. As wool resolutely declines any assimilation with starch, collars and cuffs are necessarily limp, and as immaculate whiteness is not to be ob tained in woollen goods gentlemen are com pelled to sacrifice appearance on the altar of their belief, tor their shirts, collars, and cuffs look exactly as if the laundress had washed them in pease porridge and dried them on the grid iron, but the maximum of perfection ap parently baB not yet bee...

THE PICKWICK CANTATA. A SUCCESSFUL OPERETTA SUITABLE FOB, AMATEURS. [Fcorc our Special Oorreerwndent.] London, February lo, 1889. The so-called ' dramatis cantata of ' Pickwick,' produced with such success last week at the Comedy Theatre, will be 'a boon and a blessing' to musical amateurs all over the world. It Is indeed admirably adapted for private theatricals, as the scene (Mr. Pickwick's apartment in Goswell- street) Is simple, the music fnll of melody and easy to learn, and there are only four characters — Mr. Pick wick, the Baker, Sirs. Bardell, and Tommy Bardell. The favorite number (soon, alas ! to be heard on every piano-organ) is the Baker Roll with which the enamored man of loaves announces his advent. Bakeb —Morning breaks, I must awake her, In the yeast the sun's a baker, Yom are crumby and full weighted, Hear, your baker-laureate troll Would you cruBty be if mated?
