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

TO THK EDITOR. Sir— Whilst reading the report of the Fort Augusta Bhootirjg case I was struck with the ?everity of the sentence. It also struck me that such a sentence was not consistent with a case which, if, I am not mistaken, was tided by the same judge, in which, he asked Sis plaintiff the following question :— ' What did yon hew the defendant aay about your wife t' Answer — ' He said he had had improper intercourse with my wife, and could do so again whenever he chose.' Judge— 'And did you standby and hear him soy thiB about sour wife and make no attempt to knock him down?'—' Yes, your honor.' 'Then I cannot believe yon, aB the first thing ft man would do in.such a case would be to knock the man- down with the first thirjg ' he could lay his hand upon, and no one could blame him for doing so.' I think these cases are strongly related to one another, and show in-different cases different judgments according to the feelings of the jadge at the time. If it would have been right fo...

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

TO THE EDHOB. Sir— I read with much pleasure the letter signed ' J. Williams,' protesting against the heavy sentence passed on poor Richardson at the Port Augusta Circuit Court, and suggest ing an appeal to the public on bis. behalf. One's natural exclamation on reading the case is— What! and is the Bcoundrel who wrought the mischief to go free? I feel safe in Baying that the opinion of a good many is, that if the adulterer were tarred and feathered, and] thrashed through the town in addition to hia popgun wound, it would only be what he richly deserves. The penalty under the Jewish ww iiuouuiwcjr woo uww j uim a aouputro^ Bt*f when South. Australian free lovera have their way it will be the injured party who iB put to death, while the guilty go soot free. Cardinal Manning, in the Nineteenth Century, writes:— 'A country where domestic life ia perishing has a settlement in ite foundations,' and I am sure there are many who, believing Qua, will sympathise, as I do, solely with Richard...

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

TO THS) EDHOB. Sir — If our laws are such that the judge could not award a lighter sentence it is time memberB of Paliament passed a law that would prevent such a case being treated the same as a Ehooting case without such terrible provocation as this poor fellow ib said to have had. Another upjust law iB that which pre vents evidence being given of the conversation between the victim (I mean Richardson) and his accuser, the man who w&b shot. And here I would like to ask — Is the statement of the latter, aeBeiting his innocence of Richardson's charge against him, consistent with preventing tbe abovenamed evidence being brought before t.hp pnnrf. ? T oav tin AVtll anv bm «aa? T think not. If he were innocent of the con diet attributed to him by Richardson, way did he not seek to publicly prove his innocence and Richardson's mistake by aBking the judge to admit all the evidence ? I regret our country * ' holds Buch aB consider dishonor no dif grace, and I am proud that we have...

MR. E. W. HAWKER AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889

MR. E. W. HAWKER AGAIN. Mr. E. W. Hawker, having distin guished himself by making a foolish speech, has added to hb laurels by writ ing a foolish letter. His statement that South Australia has borrowed excessively, even were it true, ought not; to have been made on the occasion when it was pub forward. His attempt to justify that statement is an aggravation of the original offence. Mr. Hawker's supposed evidence of excessive borrowing is the fact that population and production have not Increased In the same ratio aB ?oitilln anA niHTrafn rtnrrnwinfs. Ttnfi flifa is not a trustworthy test, and nobody should know better than Mr. Hawker that it is not. Who would venture to say that the debt of the Australasian colonies presses more hardly on the colonist than does that of the United Kingdom on the British taxpayer? Yet in proportion to population Australasian indebtedness Is more than twice aa large as the public debt of Great Britain. What has to be considered In this connection is th...
