The Port Pirie Recorder. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1898. Froggie v. Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 29 October 1898

^Ite $ort ^iric Saturday, October 29, 1898. SaH. Monsieur Froggy is in a tight place. He has either to climb down a lonj? way or go to war with John Bull. It is a satire on the recent disarma ment proposals. A war. might shelve the Dreyfus incident, and delay a revolution, but at what cost ? So far as the diplomatic correspon dence has been published, it is no" wonder that all parties are welded in Britain, and that public opinion universally supports Lord Salisbury in resisting encroachment- For France, with so weak a case, to give battle at sea to the infinitely superior naval power of England, appears so improbable thac one can liardlv realize the situation to he as serious as represented. Probably it will be found that the delicate mission of Count Muravieff, the Russian Foreign Minister, was connected with the crisis. Well, England is fit, and in the temper to defy the world if an attempt is made to block her uninter rupted connection from the Cape ■ to Cairo. War is so terribl...

Edithburg. From a Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 29 October 1898

From a Correspondent.. Perhaps some of yonr readers would like to know something aboisfc ibis" part of the country. The town of Edibborg lies at the extreme end of Southern Yorka's Pehinsniar, and abtftt sixlypiles across the gulf front Port Adelaide. The favorite little steamship Warooka ia charge of Captain Bartlett trades between the two places twice a week, doing the trip in about four and a half hours. She has now been running without mishap for about 17 years. She has lately been fitted with a new boiler imported from England and. thoroughly overhauled and painted,- which makes her appear quite a new vessel. Like many other towns in South Australia^ Edithbur^ has seen better days. About- twenty six years ago, when this port 'was first taken up, a very large quantity of wheat was grown for the first few years and the place flourished,bat as years passed oq and season after"" season failed,- the I place dwindled down, "to low water mark, and" many farmers who could not stand the...

THE QUESTION OF ORE FREIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 29 October 1898

THE QUESTION OF ORE FREIGHTS. The Mayor said the next question was a very- important one, viz., the pro posed increase in the ore freights between the ports and Broken Hill. Mr. K. W. Duncan moved " That this meeting protests against the proposal: of the Railway Commissioner to increase the charges for the carriage of ore as being unfair to the mineowners, andcalculated to prejudicially affect the trade of Port Pirie and the colony generally, arid we respect fully urge the Government to disallow the by-law imposing .same." If the proposed increase is decided on great " injury will _ be done to Port Pirie, and the increased revenue expected is hardly likely to accrue. Some of the mines are now run on the smallest margin of profit, and; operations would have to be considerably curtailed if the proposed alteration is to be enforced at such short notice. We should, do all we could to strengthen the hands of the deputation which had waited on the Government in the matter. Cr. Conley had ...
