Football. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
gtaxML Nearly all the footbnll grounds iu ana arouua Adclaiuo wero occupied on Saturday, May 14, and it 1 in now ^evident that the season will bj quite as popular a odc as was the last. Three nsnoriation matches were plajed, viz., Norwood v. Port, Victorian v. Adelaidecam£easiug ti'ii, and South Pork v. South Adelaide. Ttie most imports nt one was tbat played between tho Norwoods and Ports on the Oval. The result was r.atfit r unexpected, as a very close contest had been generally anticipated, and the easy their opponents eurprued even their most sargnicu frimclR. A full report of each match is given below, and the plcy spsaks pretty well as to the weak points shown by each team. With respect to tba Norwood and Port match, however, it was quite clear that, goad 83 tbe latter clnb is, it has a lot to learn. The scientific short marking and almost wonderful dexterity exhibited by tbe winners was a treat to witness. If the Ports would only endeavor to play more together than they at pr...

THE BIRTHDAY CUP WEIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
THE EfETHDAT CUP WSIGKVS. By Exile. In order that no stone should be left unturned to secure as good a handicap, and thereby as large an acceptance as possible for the Birth day Cnp, Hz. Towles, who has been very successful in petting the weights together in several clubs in Victoria, was re tained by the A.I1.C to assist Mr. Hagbes. In framing the present handicap Messrs. Hughes acd Vowles have started at 9 fit. 6 lbs., which, considering the distance — a mile and three-quarters — I roust consider too light. Four c-r £re pounds heavier, ssv 9 st. 10 lbs, would have been better, as it is difficult to eee what cbecce a lot of the lower division can possibly have, however light their im post, with some of fee top weights. Sweet meat, as UBual, takes the pride of place with, 9 Et. 6 lbs., the weight will not trouble feim, hut the distance is hardly far enough. I should not look on Mr Ivory as a likely visitor ; the weight put on his second string, Lord Bar 3-Mey, is not likely to act a...

TAXATION IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
TAXATION IN NEW ZEALAND. Now that New Zealand is fairly recovering from the serious depression which pro strated the colony for years attention is being directed to the best means of pre Tenting any relapse into difficulties similar to those from which it has emerged, not without hazardous experience. To knnn the revenue equal at least to the expendi ture and to provide for the fullest develop ment of the country's resources are clearlv the main objects to be attained. No en couragement should be given to schemes which would tend to a repetition of the disastrous reverses which came in the wake of the Vogelian policy. That was altogether too comprehensive, what ever good results it may have pro* duced, or which may incidentally flow from it is the future. The present Go vernment are wiser in their generation. While alive to theurgentimportanceof neces sary public works they are averse to the further construction of these save in so far as they ere warranted by unavoidable condi tion...

FARRELUS FLAT, May 13. A dull t-tale of things still continues in this quiet towntbip, no bu&iness of any sort doing.

Original Articles. THE DELISSA PIONEER SUGAR COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
©ricjimtl Qxtidts, THE BbLISSA PIONEER SUGAB COMPANY. The report of the special meeting of the Delissa Pioneer Sugar Company, ield on Tuesday, May 10, will have been read with attention, not only by persons directly in terested in that association, or in some ether Northern Territory enterprise, but by many other people desirous of seeing our northern dependency started on a career of progress and prosperity. The leading mis take in the administration of affairs in Alexandra Land and in private enterprises there has been that the fact of the country being distinctly tropical has not been taken into account ; and European settlers, princi pally from this colony, have gone there with the idea of laboring and embarking in divers undertakings just as though they were in a temperate region. The impression, how ever, is becoming general, and is fact almost universal, that if the resources of the Northern Territory are to be developed this object can only be accomplished by means of Asiati...
EDITHBURGH. MAY 10. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
EDITHBDllGH. Mat 19. Weather croakers are already predicting soother dry season. Although we have not beeu absolutely without rain during the lats fall, yet thiB district has been singularly unfortunate as compared with otherparts in tbe scantiness of the precious fluid allotted to us. We were more than ever brought face to face during the last three months with the great desideratum of tuis township, namely, the providing of a public tank. Townships of lesser note and smaller population on thn npninflnlfL h&ve inne rurn been nrovidpd with this luxury. We hope the matter will not be allowed to rest in abeyance, and that it will be agitated till the boon is granted. — The ques tion of lengthening the Edithburgh Jetty was again brought forward at a preliminary public menticg held last evening and adjourned till Saturday next. There can be no doubt this matter is of pnblic importance, requiring imme diate attention. The revenue obtained from tolls would fully justify the Govern...
FARMING WITHOUT RETURN. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
FARMING WITHOUT RETURN. TO TEB HDETOB. Sir— It was with much pleasure that I read your recent leading article relating to the agri cultural seleotor. I am over 270 miles north, and as I have been here three years perhaps my experience will not be out of place, as I was one of those men with Email capital, all of which I have laid out on my selection. The first season, it being .rather late when I got on the land and horse-feed being very scarce, I was only able to get in about 20 acres, whioh yielded between eight and nine bushels to the aore ; the second BMmn thfi r.rnn Tielried not nnitA fivA; And £hfi third year about two bushels to the acre. Now, at the price wheat has been for the last few years, is it possible for me to be other than bard up? Hy second instalment was due last October, and at tbat time I ex pected my crop to yield about five bushels to the acre, but as it was, after keeping seed and a little for flour, I only had forty-fire bags of wheat to sell. I had two valu...

LANCELOT. Mat 17. Since the late rains the grass has been spring ing up rapidly, and the wheat in every direction is looking will. We b&ve had some very nice thowers to-day, and there is every appearance of the rain continuing. We are having most seasonable weather, and the farmers are in good FpiriiB. — An entertainment was held in the Wtslejan Chapel on Thursday evening last, when a very lengthy programme, consisting of carried out to tbe entire satisfaction of the large audience present. It being a beautiful moon light night, a number of visitors from Terowie snd Coglin were present. A refreshment stall at the rear of the chapel was presided over by Mrs. Alfred Coon, to whom great praise is due for the macy excellent things th&t were pro vided. The proceeds, amounting to something over £8, will, I believe, go towards paying off Ihe debt on the organ. — From wbat 1 can bear, a meeting is about to be held to consider the advisability of erecting an institute.
