THE LATE INTERNATIONAL CONTEST. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

THE LATE INTERNATIONAL CONTEST. Commenting on the match, the Glasgow Weekly Herald says : — The American champion unquestionably increased bis reputation as a checker- player by the masterly manner he conducted his games. Draughts-players did not give him credit for the ability and skill he has unmistakably shown, and were inclined to rank him as a 'book' player with a good memory and an aptitude for the game. But that opinion muBt now be cast aside. The games in thiB match, bo diversified and difficult, show that he has as great a genius for checkers as his fellow countryman, Paul Morphy; had for the sister game of chess ; and although we shall pin our faith to the veteran, ** Hflwi TiftririlA '* fshn in nnnr in A naf volia « match between Barker and Wyllie for the championship of the world wonld undoubtedly prove a dose affair and the most interesting contest of modem times. Such a matoh may be looked for. Smith and his friends took their defeat with a good grace. In a conversatio...

THE BEETALOO WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— Would you kindly permit me to explain on behalf of the people of this district and roy bcH the ciuel mismanagement of those who arranged our st&ndpipe in Paakeville. We have a reeervoir in the township containing ten million gallons of water supplied from the Eeetaloo works, and yet we Bee fanners coming here every day, some aa far as 14 miles, for water, and have to go away without being able to get a drop, not even for their famishing horses in the waggon. Some considerable time ago I &«ked our representatives in Parliament, through our council, to ask the Commissioner to alter the present source through which we are supposed to get an unlimited supply from tbe Beetaloo, and they got the usual atereo ticed reply. 'Will iret a report.' But we have never heard anything more since, nor I suppose are we likely to. Instead of getting onr supply direct from the Beetaloo main, the Rsalway Department comes in between. Tae Rail...

Sir — Will you kindly allow me to say a word ia explanation and in justice to myself with reference to the prisoner's conduct in the above case, ' reported by you to-day ? My address to the juiy on Mb behalf waa based entirely on his own narration of the cir cumstances to me, and I waa instructed that he would make the same state ment in the dock.

Your reporter will remember that on my resuming my eeat at the close of my address I waa told privately that prisoner had denied being out of bed, and I at once contradicted the atote ment that prisoner had made such a denial.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

TO THE EDITOR. Sir— After reading Mr. Wood Green's letter on the Port Augusta shooting case I can only express my deep sympathy for Jthe wronged man Richardson, but to endeavor to prevent in the future men from taking the law into their own hands in these cases it would be as well if Parliament W6re to consider the follow ing suggestions;— Any man attempting to criminally assault a single female (with or without her consent) under the age of 25 yean should be sentenced to five years* imprisonment with hard labor. Aoy man attempting to criminally assault a married woman (with or nifh/nf tia» unnaanfi ofinnlr) 'ha aafltanflAl^ tn Ifl or more years imprisonment with hard labor. This will teach men to cultivate independence of the feminine gender. Tbe idea of limiting the consenting age of girls to 16 is only limiting the degree of immorality and crime. Some men have a polished manner of making women consenting parties to the immoral act. The above suggestions would not excuse either ma...

Wxz loung Jfolk^ A SLEEPY LITTLE SCHOOL. [By Malcolm Douglas J A funny old professor kept a school for little boys, And he'd romp with them in play-time and he wouldn't mind their noise ; While in his little schoolroom, with its head against the wall, WftB a bed of such proportions it was big enongb for all. ' It's for tired little pupils,' he explained, 'for you will find How very wrong indeed it is to force a budding vninrl ? Whenever one grows sleepy and he can't bold up his head I make him lay his primer down and send him off to bed! ' And sometimes it will happen on a warm and pleasant day, When the little birds upon the trees go tooral looral-lay, When wideawake and studious it's difficult to keep, One by one they'll get a nodding till the whole claes iB asleep.

CREDULITY IN SCIENCE COMPARED WITH CREDULITY IN RELIGION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

CREDULITY IN SCIENCE COM PARED WITH CREDULITY IN RELIGION. [By Principal Henry Dakling.] ''Many therefore of his disciples, when they bad heard this, said, This is an hard saying ; who can hear it?' These words are expres Bive not so much of a positive unbelief, as of a wavering, hesitating scepticism. Christ had just preached one of His profoundeBt spiritual discourses. He bad proclaimed Himself to be tbe true .bread from heaven, the antitype of the manna, and had affirmed that, as that Divine food had nourished the temporal Israel in the wilderness and had given them phyBioal strength to enter Canaan, so He was the spiritual food of His people, and feeding upon Him an 'entrance into heaven would finally be illIUlBbBFeU UubUlrOClU.

TO IKK EDUCE. Sir— Allow me space in. regard to the weakness of the town council of fort Augusta in sympathising with the first and principal offending person in the unhappy shooting case. Now Mrs, Richardson, as every honest man or woman must admit, is the cause of the tragedy, becauee if she had not consented to unlawful intercourse her huBband would not now be in gaol, neither would that family circle have been ruthlessly destroyed. Shame and confasion to such a woman. Instead of being sorry for what she haB done, the asks the council not to hare companion on her husband and the father of her children by signing a petition against the mercilees sentence inflicted on that unhappy mart, and the worthy town council acquiesceB in her request. I hope the honest men of Port Augusta and all over the colony will rally up and hold public meetings to protest against the unjust sentence let them consider how they would feel if £uch a Ecandal happened in their homes, and therefore show their...

TO THE EDHOB. Sir— While endorsing 'J, WnUamB's' re marks on the above case I would draw the attention of all honorable men and women, and all lovers of morality, home, and happiness, to the conduct of the man who, without fear of justice overtaking him, deliberately set about ruining and desecrating another man's home, bappioesp, and life; and I ask, how does society treat him 1 What punish ment is meted out to him for the misery he has brought to many hearts? For has he not cast the dark shadow of shame and sorrow over all the beloved relatives not only of his victim, but of the man who is now condemned to almost a felon's doom — a doom almost as bad as death to a high-spirited man. The far-reaching and perhaps terrible results of the seducer's conduct no one may ever know. Yet how doet society treat these despoilexa ? Does it not take them by the hand ? Are they not welcomed into society, and do they not enjoy life and liberty while their victims are disgraced and ruined, and dee...

10 THE EDHOB. Sir— Since writing my letter of 1st inst, you have published extracts of two letters from Mrs. HichardBon to her husband, dated 6th and 8th March, the very time the shoot ing occurred. Now his honor in passing sentence made it a Btrong point that prisoner acted only on suspicion of his wife's infidelity, and the I Crown Prosecutor said prisoners allegations of bis wife's confession were un worthy of belief. Granted that nothing could prove justification of the shooting!' sfiH had these letters been produced corroborating prisoner's statements and at the same time contradicting the prosecutor's sworn denial Boncaut would bave taken a more lenient view of the case, and I have no hesitation in saying that if these facts are now brought before him in a proper manner he will be only too glad to recommend a reduction of the sentence. I think the action of the prisoner in not calling hia wife, who was at the hearing, to contradict pro secutor's evidence worthy of approoation....
