WHAT IS PROTECTION? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

WHAT IS PROTECTION? TO THE EDHOE. Sir— From the report of the meeting of elec tors held at Norwood, as reported in your paper, Mr. Finniss seemed not to know the meaning of the word protection, and as It would appear he was anxious to sail along with those who would wish to alter our tariff, he may also appear to be ignorant of that word, aad from whence it was first derived. I will, therefore, quote a few words for his in struction. Origin of the word tariff.— 'The puzzling name, tariff ' is from the Town of Tarifa, at the mou'h of ihe Straits of Gibraltar, and the most southern point in Europe, sot even excepting Cape Matapan, at the foot of the Morea. Tarifa was the last stronghold which the Moors disputed with the Christians, and is still within three leagues of the empire of Morocco. When the Moors held possession of both the pillars of Hercules, it was here that they levied contributions for vessels enter ing the Mediterranean — whence the generic name tariff. — Chambers' Jour...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

THE NORTHERNfTERRITORY. TO THE EDITOE. Sir — Will you allow me to refer, in a few words, to the Northern Territory question. No one who has read the newspapers can fail to see the patience which has oeea exercised by the landholders, and notwithstanding this they are constantly assailed with unmerited abuse. It is not fair to say they bought the land merely as a speculation ; on the contrary, they paid their money on the faith of the Govern ment fulfilling their promise, and if they get land in the time specified by the Act they will forgive the delay and mismanagement which has characterised the matter from the very first; but unless the land is surveyed in the five years they will expect their money back. And it matters not what maybe the state of public opinion, the landholders are legally entitled to their purchase-money, and one Crown lawyer also holds they are entitled to interest as well. The important question for the Government to consider, in my opinion, is — ;'Are they ju...

The town was much excited, and hundreds of persons han left their cards at Government House. The clergy of the Church of England had issued a special form of thaksgiving for the Doke safety. We believe it is not unlikely that the Parliament will be prorogued next week, or early in the week following. Probably the hrst batch ot elections will be disposed of before Easter. Mr. H. C.

The Chairman opened the proceedings by reading the advertisement convening the meet ing, and by requesting a fair and impartial hearing for all the candidates, tie then called upon Mr. Cheriton, as being the first in the field, to address the. meeting. Mr. Cheriton commenced by explaining that he was not actuated by ambition in soliciting their (suffrages, but having been requested by a great number of influential electors, he had con sented to stand. It had been reported that he was united with Mr. Dunn, of Mount Barker, but he could assure them that he stood entirely alone, and if elected he Bhould do his utmost to further the interests of the district and the welfare of the colony at large.

MOUNT PLEASANT, MARCH 11. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

MOUNT PLEASANT, March 11     I am sorry to record another sad and fatal acci-   dent that happened last week to Wm. Fisher. It seems a remarkable coincidence that is   attached to Fisher's death. He was, from re-   port, walking through Springton, on his way   down here, and seeing a horse standing outside the Springton Hotel he, without permission from the owner, mounted and galloped down the road at a furious rate, and when near W. Phillis's the horse either stumbled or he fell off, but, sad to relate, he was picked up by Mr. P., who thinking he was only suffering from the effects of drink, laid him in the barn, and next morning on going to see whether he had got up and left he was horror-struck to find him dead. An inquest was held by Mr. Bennett, but not being present when it was finished, I have not heard the verdict. What is also very strange, it seems the horse that Fisher took belonged to Mr. Lyddo...

NEWLAND MEMORIAL CHURCH, PORT VICTOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 14 March 1868

NEWLAND MEMORIAL CHURCH PORT VICTOR. The services in connection with the inaugura- tion of the Newland Memorial Church took place on Sunday, March 8, and on the Tuesday following. This Church is erected in memory of the Rev. Ridgeway William Newland, a   devoted minister of the Gospel, who labored for many years in the district of Encounter Bay and the surrounding neighborhood, and who by his earnestness and self-devotedness to the reli- gious, social, and municipal well-being of the people of the South was most highly venerated; and who won for himself a place in the affec- tionate memories of the people there. Four years ago Mr. Newland, whilst returning from Adelaide to his home, met with an accident which terminated fatally. The feelings of regret for his death and also of affection to his memory led the inhabitants to take steps to perpetuate his name. It was thought that it would be more consonant with the feelings of the departed gentleman, and more useful to the...

WALLAROO. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

WAUJAROO. rFrnm the WaEaroo Times. March 18.1 A redaction of smelters' wages took place at the Smelting Works on Monday last. The pay :' of the captains of furnaces has been lowered 3d. per charge, and that of their mates Id. per charge, which, will T»e equivalent to about 7s. a week off the wages of the former class, and to about 2s. 6d. a week off the j-ay of the latter. This Jhas been effected at a time when the men can very ill afford it. Hot the past three . months their earnings have been miserably small in consequence of the partial stoppage of the works, and now that the establishment is again in fall operation, or nearly bo, the men have the pleasing intelligence communicated to them that they must henceforth work at a. re duced rate of pay. Of 'course the trade of the township will suffer another serious check from this unexpected reduction ; many of the men having necessarily of late become indebted to the storekeepers will find it less easy than they had anticipated to f...

MEETING AT LYNDOCH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

MEETING AT LYNDOCH. Mr. Santo met the electors at a well-attended meeting, held March 17, at the Lord Lyndoch, Mr. Bevilaqoa in the chair. As Mr. Santo has already at Gawler- stated his political opinions freely, a lengthy report will be need less. He defended the present land laws, sub stituting sales by tender to sales by auction, and a larger area always kept surveyed ready for sale. ' He could not see any advantage likely to arise from free selection and deferred pay ments. In Victoria, where this ? state of things existed, large capitalists could, by means of dummies, become possessedof the best of the hind at a third of its real value. He knew of one instance himself where this was done to the extent of the whole of a run. He would support any improvement of the present system. In reference to Sutherland's Act, there had been a great outcry against it, which be thought was because it was not fairly under stood. The Land Fund was now -?evo_ted, one third to immigration, one-thi...

THE LAND SYSTEM. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle and Weekly Mail — 21 March 1868

THE LAND SYSTEM. roOMMUNICATED.l At some of the election meetings that have' lately been held, questions have .been put to the candidates with reference to their views on the land question, but with the exception of the meeting in East Torrens, it is difficult to tell from what has passed whether either the can didates «r the electors have any definite scheme j to propose. The -former admit that it is the great question of the day, and they' also acknowledge that some change ought to be made ; the latter con tent themselves with stating that a more liberal land system is necessary, but do not say with any precision what it is they require. How the term ' more liberal land system' conveys different meanings to different minds, and is far too indefinite. It is moreover peculiarly inappropriate at the present time, inasmuch as the satisfactory settlement of any question of importance can never be arrived at, where, instead of distinct and positive statements, we have only vague and un ...

THE BAKKS OF THE COLONY. Our. Banking ' Establishments. ... have, within the last few years, attained a degree of expansion that makes the study of their periodical returns a matter of increasing interest. Indeed we -might say that the progress of our Banking institutions is not only an interesting financial study, but one that is becoming a grave commercial necessity, as the indica tions of each half-yearly summary of returns explain to us the lessons of the past, and supply warning and instruction for the future. It is not, indeed, essen tial that every person opening an account with a 'banker should nave the ' averages' at his fingers' ends, .nor even that every shareholder in a banking concern should know by heart the Act of Incorporation or the Deed of Settlement. The truth is, to the mass of people the principles and 'practice of banking are alike mysterious, ;Trc£ this results quite as much from the inherent difficulties of the subject as from the mode in which returns are re...
