Original Articles. INFANT MORTALITY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

[?] ' INFANT MORTALITY. The Registrar-General's report, recently published of births and deaths registered in this colony during the quarter ended ^Wnrrh 31 of this year, once more directs attention to the large rate of infant mor tality, that is to say, the mortality of in fants under twelve months of age. Of every hundred children born during the quarter seventeen died, and of 1,150 the total number of deaths, 448 were those of babies who had not completed one year of mundane existence. This is a very large proportion, out it must De remembered tnat the figures relate to the hottest quarter of the year, and the months most fatal to infant life, except April, when sickly in fante appear to be unable to rally from the effects of the summer and its attendant ailments they have passed through. The rate of general mortality in South Australia is considerably lower than in England, where the death rate in 1878 was 31*7 per 1,000 of the population, while that of this colony in the same y...

RAILWAY TRAIN SIGNALS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

BAIL WAY TRAIN SIGNALS. Within the last fortnight some telegrams have been published in the South Australian papers in reference to a railway accident which occurred upon one of the lines in New South Wales. It appears that a train took fire while on its journey. There was no means of communicating with the guard or the driver of the engine. One of the passengers in his alarm slipped off or got off the carriage while it was in motion, - and a day or two back news came that he linJ JinJ fvnvn +lin VTI^nVlaG TlO TlOil OnotoinOa . A railway carriage on fire is not a very common occurrence, but it is of sufficient frequency to form one of the recognised risks of railway travelling that can only be met by estab lishing some method by which a signal could be made from any carriage to the guard's van, and to the engine-driver. The chances of a conflagration on a railway are only some of the dangers to which passen gers are exposed. Violent assaults, rob beries, outrages on helpless women, ...

THE BRITISH AND THE BOERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

THE BRITISH AND THE BOERS. Ocb last mail budget contained particulars of the treaty of peace concluded between the British and the Boers, and we have recently published some telegrams intimating the likelihood of the renewal of hostilities in the Transvaal. Unfortunately there are many reasons to render such an event probable. When the late con ditions of peace in the Transvaal were printed persons who had extensive and practical knowledge of the matter at once declared that many clauses contained in it wfiTfi Tm-D-namt with indications of future bickering and consequent strife, and notably those which provided that British garrisons should be kept Li the principal towns, and that native and frontier questions were to be regulated by British management. The first ispartieularly fruitful of the apples of discord and the seeds of coming con tention. It is known that the fanatic sec tion of the Boers under Paul Kruger, called ' Doppers,' have for many years entertained hitter animosity...

THE BRADLAUGH CASE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

THE BRADLAUGH CASE. Thb Bradlaugh case is still occupying the attention and trying the patience of the Houee of Commons, and, judging from the present appearances of things, there seems every probability that some time will elapse before all difficulties are solved and a satisfactory conclusion arrived at. Many people, including several of his own inti mate friends, hoped that at the close of the late trial Mr. Bradlaugh would see the hopelessness of continuing a contest which, wnue it perplexed parliament, could not in any way secure much material advantage to himself. The member for Northampton, however, is made of sterner stuff than the majority of men, and his disposition is so decidedly pugnacious that he is evidently determined not to give up the fight until he finds that there is absolutely no other al ternative. The late trial, which took place in the Queen's Bench Division before Mr. Justice Watkin Williams and Mr. Justice Mathew, was in many respects very re markable, and ...

Had she spoken hotly or bitterly, or in wild anger or grief, he might have let the matter drop, In hope of time softening her feelings and giving him an opportunity of renewing the theme, but there was nothing but deep gadness in her looks and words, speaking of an eternal separation, and a decision as irre vocable as fate. Swiftly the thoughts of Myles reverted to his former conversation on the subject, and the subsequent interview with Dan. ' I grasped the end of the tangled skein ther,' was his excited reflection. 'I never yet was beaten in any task to which Ifairly set myself. JSow for an attempt to get at the whole mystery.' He did not attempt to re...

THE BLACK ROBE. BY WILKIE COLLINS. {Pnbliihei bj special airangrainnt vrith tbe Author; All rights reserved.] AFTER THE STORY. The Diaby Resumed. London, 2nd Jslay, 1864. — Mrs. Eyre court's telegram reached me, just after Dr. Wybrow had paid his first professional visit to Penrose, at the hotel. I had hardly time to feel relieved by the opinion of the case which he expressed before my mind was upset by Mrs. Eyrecourt. Leav ing Penrose under the charge of our excel lent landlady, I hurried away to Lord Loring. It was still early in the day ; liis lord ship was at home. He maddened me with impatience by apologiainff at full length for ' the inexcusable manner in which he had misinterpreted my conduct on the de plorable occasion of the marriage ceremony at Brussels.' I stopped his flow of word3 (very earnestly spoken, it is only right to add), and entreated him to tell me, in the first place, what Stella was doing in Paris. ' Stella is with her husband,' Lard Loring replied. My head t...

They ask that their Local Court may ba proclaimed a Court of Insolvency under Act 185 of 1880, and urge the necessity for this to prevent them from suffering any longer the inconveniences and losses to ?which business men in that quarter have been subjected for so many years through the want of any means of dealing with bankrupt debtors, without travelling to Adelaide, hundreds of miles away from their homes and occupations.

THE AGRICULTURAL SELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 14 May 1881

IDE AGEICULTURAL SELECTORS.. An attempt was made by the last Parlia ment to enable needy selectors to tide over temporary financial difficulties by giving them the right to mortgage their selections. This right, however, was so hedged about by restrictions that few selectors have taken advantage of the Act. The number of insolvencies amongst farmers, although per haps not large in proportion to the number of agriculturists, is still sufficiently serious to attract attention, and calls for more con sideration than has been given to this matter. It is not to the benefit of the State that cultivators should be forced by a run of bad seasons to relinquish their farms, and any system which enables the industrious far mer to successfully tide over a few unfor tunate years without loss to the cominu nily at large will not only assist and eu courage him to persevere, but will also lend to ultimately swell the revenue we dtrive from the sale of our waste lands. Under the present Act selector...
