THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 7 March 1868
THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — In referring to the above subject little apology is required at the present time, since it must occupy the attention of many minds in -our comnnraity, and as there is every prospect that the colony will be sacrificed to the hesitation or timidity of the Government, it is the more necessary that the public should express an opinion immediately and unmistakeahfy. The delay which has occurred in surveying the land sold has given an opportunity to the purchaser to raise an outcry for the repayment of the ouTchase money, although the time men tioned in the Act for selection has not expired. It should not, however, be forgotten, that the delay has been occasioned by the holders of land orders aad their agents who were active in in ducing the' Government to suspend the surveys until a thorough examination of the country and coast line was made. This has only jus j been completed in accordance with their wishes, and there appears now to be no dif...
THE BALLOT-BOX. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 7 March 1868
THE BALLOT-BOX. TO THE EDITOE. Sir — The letter of your correspondent on ' the unprotected state of the ballot-box' recalls to my recollection a precisely similar case, at which I was myself present, upon the occasion of the last election for the district of Sturt. In that case I was acting as scrutineer for one of the candidates, and the Returning Officer requested me to witness the closing and sealing of the box at the.close of the poll, upon which occasion he used a half-crown piece for the purpose of a seaL Although I made no remark at the time, I certainly thought it a very unsafe mode of ensuring the secrecy which the principle of the ballot is capable of at taining. lam, Sir, &&, One Equally Jealous of the Ballot-Box.
THE COMING ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 7 March 1868
THE COMING ELECTIONS. TO THE EDITOR «? Sir — Never at any previous period has a South Australian Parliament had so many important measures to grapple with as the coming Parlia ment. Never had the constituencies a greater right .or more urgent occasion to questioa their would-be representatives on their views of public matters. Never has the colony been placed in so close a. proximity to bankruptcy. Never have the public in general expected so much from that august body. Such being the case, the following test questions might be sub mitted with propriety to all candidates for legislative honors : — 1. What are your views with regard to a new Land Bill, taken in connection with immigra tion? 2. What are your views as to the Northern Territory ? Shall the colony pay a quarter of a million, more or less, for this bungling job? How can we escape from the horns of the dilemma in which we are now placed ? 3. What are your views with regard to a new Insolvency Bill ? Oh, for another Torrens...
THE FUTURE LAND ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 7 March 1868
THE FUTURE LAND ACT. TO THE EDITOB. Sir — I beg to suggest a mode of a future deal ing with the waste lands, which I believe to be a good and simple one. Not that I mean to say that ray plan may not be amended or modi fied, but I think that it embraces the principal features of a new Land Act, which, while being beneficial tothe'farnier, the real occupant of the land, will at the same time not do any injustice to those who have bought at a higher price under the present Act. It is true some have paid enormous prices for their land, but such cases I cannot contemplate now as a guiding star to a more liberal land law as it suggests itself to every impartial person, or as I ought to say, as it forces itself upon one's mind at pre sent, the old system being no longer adapted to the progress of the colony. FEATURES OF NEW LAND ACT. L Government to keep a sufficient quantity of land surveyed, in sections of 120 acres or more, in the different parts of the colony, avail able for everybody....
