PUBLIC-HOUSES AS POLLESTS-PLACES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 16 April 1881

PUBLIC-HOUSES AS POLLLXG PLACES. TO TBW EQTTQ&. Sir— As an elector I bave been very mush surprised that whereas Unley and Mitcham have each public buildings suitable for voting places, tliat the retnrning-officer for tbe Start (cr whoever elsa waB responsible) preferred making the Cremorne Hotel, Usley, and tbe Edinburgh Hotel, Hitcbsm, the polling-places. There is no doubt that, this baa encouraged eiidug cl votes. The committees of certain can didates by engaging rooms at the hotels as near to the polliug-bootbs as possible, bad oppor tunities which they exercised et taking voters into these places prior to voting. I hope that iu future this mistake may be rectified, and as in Adelaide, public buildings alone will be used as voting- places. — lam, &e, AN ELECTOR OP STTJET.

PROTECTION. . TO TEE EBITOB. Sir — Knowing that you are ever ready to ad Tar.ce tbe interests of ths colony, I therefore ask for a little space in your valuable columns to make known a want of protection for leather manufacturers and tbe labor class particularly. The fact teat a great number of men are dis charged from several large employing establish ments demands attention, as it is the resr'.tof the ' exportation ' ef hides and sheepskins, which is increasing to an alarming extent. Ex porters are giving higher prices for these goods than the colonial manufacturers oan afford to offer, consequently the labor is now eent to England, greatly to the depression of labor and trade generally in this colony. In reality we have now to compete with English merchants in tbis respect, wkicb this young colony is unable to do unless our manufacturers are protected. Owing to the demand in England for Australian hark it has enhanced the priee in this colony cent, per cent, during tbe last seven...

THE BPAKEOW NUISANCE. CO THB EDITOB. Sir — I observe that the Chamber of Mausias tnres and tbe Agricultural Society propose to raise £300 for the purpose of 'fitting out trap pers with nets and other appliances to destroy the birds.' Destruction by this means would be very email. Three years ago, at the cent of 4 lbs. of poisoned wheat, I effectually cleared my orchard and its vicinity of that unmitigated pest, the sparrow. I know chat fruitgrowers have tried poisoned wheat, arid found it fail became the birds would not eat it. At first I failed in the same way. But I was completely successful on mixing one pound of Pitt's (anenically) poisoned wheat, with six pounds of sweet wheat (one to six). By that means the birds were entrapped into eating occasional scraps of the grain, which, were, however, suffi cient in quantity to destroy the vermin, and so effectually, too, that within three hours of spreading the poison, dead and dying birds were found in large numbers. As it is difficu...
