Correspondence. THE PORT AUGUSTA SHOOTING CASE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
€mtgffmibfltt& THE PORT AUGUSTA SHOOTISG CASE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— Judging by several instances in which severe sentences have been passed in this colony upon persons whose only crime was an effort to vindicate tbe sanctity of home, one iB led to fear -that the judgment which some of thoee in high places have of the purpose of the law ie, that it is intended to make vice easy and virtue difficult. If the facts in the caee of Richardson prove that hia home had been ruined, then not only is the e6d tence paeEed upon him an iniquity, but the in dividual passing the sentence lays himself open to grave reflections as to the direction in which his fejenpathies go. In the old country we have been taught to regard the adulterer as among the vilest of men, and the judgment of tbe EcgliBb public has been clearly shown in tbe persistent exclusion of Sir Charles Dilke from public life, although he is admitted to be a most able man. But in this colony we have reversed the principles in w...

All lights reserved.] Chapter L— The Ninth Mubdee, There was great excitement in the Strand Newspaper boys were rushing wildly hither and thither displaying placards announcing the committal of another of the mysterious murders which had startled all London. Almost every person one met was eagerly reading the particulars in the newspaper he carried, whilst little knots formed themselves at the corners of the streets excitedly disaass int? the affair. The niurder in question was the ninth that had been committed within the last nine month*, and it had been carried out in pre cisely the same manner as the preceding eight. The victim, as in the previous cases, was a woman, and was both young and beautifal. ' When will this reign of terror end ? When will the mystery which surrounds t...

THE SOUTH MINE. STARTING OF THE SMELTER. Broken Hill, April 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
THE SOUTH MINE. STARTING OF THE SMELTER. fBp TeleirraTja.1 Broken HiU, April 8. The Cornwall smelter at the South Broken Hill mine was started at 6 o'clock this morn ing, the preliminary warming having been accomplished yesterday. Much interest has been manifested in the experiment, and imme diately after the news of tbe smelter having started reached town, quite a crowd gathered at the furnace. At 11 o'clock five tons of bul lion had run from the furnace, and was stand ing in bars ready for cartiDg away. The start iog ib regarded as highly satisfactory, and the manager is very pleased witti tbs work. He says the success of the nndeitakicg is now firmly established. Of course a few slight improvements will have to be effected. The stack is rather low, and a great volume of emoke Bweeps along tbe hill, causing much inconve nience, but the manager states there ia no room for doubt; as to the suitability of the snrelter for treating the ore from the South Broken Bill mice.

Original Articles. NATIONAL DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
©riginal ^rikle& NATIONAL DEFENCE' Tee question of the deficiency of the naval and military defences of the Empire has become the question of the day. Naturally Englishmen — and we include in this category the subjects of the Qaeen everywhere — are most sensitive to any thing like a decline in naval power and supremacy. This is to a certain extent a matter of sentiment. The power, wealth, and position of England and her colonies have been so largely founded and built up upon the empire of the seas u»b no a iiaiiiuu auu a rwre wo -u.o one and all alive to the importance of maintaining paat traditions and the spirit of our fathers. National sentiment is one of the most powerful factors in national existence. And it is one which states manship Is bound to recognise as a source of inspiration and strength. Bnt naval snpremacy is much more than a sent! - xnent. It is a matter of necessity. Naval weakness is a reproach and danger. The harvest of England is reaped beyond the Beas. ...

GENERAL DOWNES AND THE WAR OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
GENERAL D0WNB8 AND THE WAR OFFICE. The correspondence between the South Australian Government and the Imperial authorities on the subject of the employ ment of General Downes as Commandant of the local forces appears elsewhere. It will be remembered that General Downes accepted the appointment before he had received the consent of the War Office necessary to enable an officer on the re- - tired list of the Imperial army to take a colonial command. Much to the surprise of the local authorities and the public, Downing-street refused to sanction the appointment, so that the alternative before the General was either to resign his new position or forfeit his pension of £500 a year. He naturally chose the former course ; but as Ministers were ex ceedingly loth to lose his valuable services they brought pressure to bear upon the home authorities, with the result that it was finally agreed to allow General Downes to retain his position, on the condition that he should not draw his retired p...

INSANITY IN ROYAL FAMILIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 13 April 1889
INSANITY IN ROYAL FAMILIES. Insauity Is an evil which unfortunately finds victims among all classes of society, but there has always been a popular im pression that an unusual percentage of madness, or of those deeply predtepOBed in that direction, is to be found in royal families. It is a question whether this Idea does not owe its origin hi great part to the prominence which an insane ruler has always occupied in history, sometimes merely on account of his misfortune and Rnmatimes nwinf to the terrible conse quences which have resulted from it. A writer In the Economist has taken up this subject in commenting on the sad end of the Crown Prince of Austria, and makes some statements which sound in themselves sufficiently alarming as to the amount of insanity at present existing in European royal families. He says — ' We have seen a list of more than 20 princes and princesses under medical care for brain affections, and the number displays a perilous tendency to increase.' At the fir...

THE CENTRAL MINE. IBy Telegraph. I Broken Hill, April 9. x visuea we central wordings tais morning. The winze from the 200-feet leval is now down about 80 feet. The water was cleared away sufficiently a few days ago to enable sinking to be resumed, but it has again interfered with tbe work. Fully 50 feet of the shaft is in ore, and the manager informed me this morn ing *that the ore is really good payable stuff. There is now- a large heap of ore lying on the ore floors, and the manager Bays that only stuff that will pay for dispatching is being saved, A chamber is being cnt at the 300-f eet level, and it will be completed as quickly as possible. A croBscat : will then be taken towards the winze, which will drain the water and allow sinking to be resumed, ? Particulars as to the silver value of the ore will be forwarded to the directors on Thursday, but before then the manager feels . he can scarcely make them public. He states, however, that it ib thoroughly profitable,

^latl $efo0. LONDON TABLE TALK. [From our SpesiaT Correspondent,] London, March 1, 1889. The trap which Sis Charles Russell ao cleverly laid for the wily Pigott with tha word 'hesitancy' depended on one letter only. Other smart forgeries hare curiously enough been found out very similarly through an equally small yet all-Important and convincing blunder. There was one famous case I remember about four years ago. An American turned op In London with a budget of letters alleged to be by Thackeray. They contained the nove list's opinions on all sorts of subjects, were written in hia unmistakable spiders handwriting, and if genuine were un doubtedly very valuable. The novelist's daughter, however, at once pronounced them forgeries. She could give no con clusive reasons for her belief, Bave that the views expressed In the correspondence were not her father's. On the other hand, experts pronounced tha writing to ba the sarue as that on known genuine docu ments, and it was shown that Thack...

WESLEYAN CHURCH AT TUMBY. TO THB EDITOB. Bir— in replying to Mr S wann's letter I wish to assure him that he misinterprets my letter where he imagines I accuse nun-of being the writer of the marriage report. If he will turn up my letter again he will find that I drew a clear distinction between the clergyman who solemnised the marriage and your correspon dent who reported the matter to you. It was my fiimple object in what I stated to point out that the application of 'Trinity' to the Trinity Chnroh is an error, and here I may further Bay that it has liu ujjt viuirKujja iu Duxue lDBwnlCBS miB16u «ne minds of the public, and this of itself is a suffi cient cause for my having appeared in print.
