Bits from "The Critic." [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 22 October 1898

Bits from " The Critic." "Apropos', the increase of o^e freights. It'.was partly the S.A. Railway Department's up rates that caused the removal of the smelters from B.H. to tba,seaboard. And now, S.A. having been baulked in one direction,-, taxes the mines in another. Ugh ! Lord Kilmorey is said to be very much " down in the dumps " over the so far fail ore of his Outer Harbour Bill. Its ch mces of ever becoming law look hopeless. The Adelaide dailies each clear a good £1,200 a year out of thei " Hansard " contracts. S.A. Police Commissioner M dley was once a school teacher. Judging by his screamingly funny Children's Protection Act he cannot, shake off his ea»*ly training. A Commissioner of Police should be a broad-minded man of the world, riot a mere' groper with a baton. The little altercation between the oldest member of the S.A. Assembly and one of our military-..legislators last week was far more serious than made to appear from the, newspaper reports of the incident. The seni...

The Poultry Yard. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 22 October 1898

(Br Cayuga.) Ih & little time all the northern shows will be over, md those who exhibit will be ghd topay more attention to batching operations. Very few of oar producers realize the importance of the poultry industry; it is generally considered only fit for women, or a fewihare-brained fanciers. The actual facts are that, with the exception of the very arid portions of the colony, South Australia is an ideal place for poaltry breeding. We hsve a good market in Adelaide, and farther, by our want ofenterprisejare losing, in spite of oat- geographical position, tbe^greater portion of the export trade in poultry to West Aqstialia- A proininenfe city sales man recently told me t hat with the excellent prices ruling for ordinary farm poaltry, the returns mu?t be profitable; and when, he' added, we see wore quality and less of the present tough, scraggy mongrel, the Thorns to the producer will be still more satisfactory.

I see .by your paper of the loth that the Corporation received my letter of the 10th, and tint Councelior Wileher, while championing my case, had to withdraw the word "hard" and substitute "severe."

The Port Pirie Recorder. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1898. Practical Education. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 22 October 1898

lie $ort $irie ^ecarbcr. Saturday, October 22, 1898. Practical Education. If our Conservative friends, instead of wasting their energy in bumping their craniums against the solid masonry of settled national policy, would seek to be useful, they might be occasionally rewarded with sweets of office. Take, for example, free education. Its opponents might just as well try to sweep the oceau out of Spencers' Gulf as to persuade the people to give up what thev know is a good thing. Fees iri addition to the cost of books would bfc? a burden which the parents have no right if they could reasonably bear when the education is expressly to enable the whole people to compete favourably with other countries. What the Conservatives frequently point jut without appreciating the significence of the fact, is that the great majority of the children in State schools must work with tlieir hands for a livelihood. Why do they not then devote their talents to assist the authorities to centralise the truth...
