THE LATE DROWNING CASE IN THE TORRENS LAKE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
THE LATE DROWNING CASE IN THB TORRENS LAKE. TO THB EDITOR. Sir— Seeing by tbe papers that there is a doubt about the man found drowned in the Torrena Lake, I am of opinion that it is Mr. Edward Martin Pearce, head schoolmaster in the Moonta model school '10 or 11 years ago. I knew him well at the time he was in Moonta. He had a heavy beard, and was 5 feet 5 inches in height. I saw him measured, He always wore shoes when in Moonta. He went to Melbourne during the Christmas holidays in 1SS3. Before that time he was, I believe, at Sturt-street model school. I have a photo, of him taken in Moonta, which I will show if of any use to his friends or relatives.— I am, &c, SOitRY. Hindmarsb, April 9, 1SS9,
THE RABBIT PLAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
THE RABBIT PLAGUE. O«c£ more the rabbits are victorious. The scientific attack npon them haa con fessedly failed. A Royal Commission has been studying them in the hope of find ing means for their wholesale extermina tion, and has finally ' given them best.' If they had only known of the interest they were excltlngand how it was mani fested their natural timidity Is such that they might have been expected to give up the ghost from sheer apprehension. What a scare would have swept over their haunts and homes had they received the intelligence that scientific men from five colonies, aided by experts from [Europe, were consulting how most speedily to classify themamoDgextinctanimals! Con trariwise how they would have frisked and capered if they could only have read the report of that commission, as laid before the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales, and reproduced in our columns last weak. The work of the In fluential body which has had the question in hand seems to have been done ...
MR. E. W. HAWKER, M.P. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
MR. E. W. HAWKER, M.P. 10 THE EDIXOB. Sir— Mr, E. W. Hawker, M.P., ia certainly deserving of the thanks of all the friends whose thoughts run in the same channel. Bat the everlasting croaking of a charmed circle of South Australians is pitiable in the extreme. They have endeavored to inflict ir reparable injury upon the colony,l*and in numerous instances these are the very persons who are indebted to the colony for the wealth they have obtained. Instead of fouling his own neBt why does not Mr. Hawker exert his influence in England and elsewhere to indues Australia ? One cannot but admire the excel lent defence of our own colony by Mr. Speight, and »1bo by the Agent-General (Sir A, Elyth), These gentlemen are entitled to the warmest thanks of our community,£Believing when the next general elections come round that every croaker or candidate holding pessi mistic views will be ignominiously rejected, I will continue as usual an ANTI-CROAKER,
