BEEF-BUITER, OR OLEOMAR-GERINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
BEEF-BUITER, OR OLEOMA.R GERINE. [By Charles E. Bolton, in the Boston Inde pendent.'] In these -wonderful days ?which produce steel from iron instanter, sugar from, heets and corn, telephones more useful than tele graphs, ice in midsummer, and butter ?without cows, it would be well if our pro fessional men would take a weekly half holiday among the business activities and successes of eyery-day life. Again and again the sluggish mind of the farmer has been quickened by the ten thousand patents on agricultural machinery. At iiist the dairyman saw only destruction in the cheese factory. Soon factory cheese brought a cent more per pound than hand made. The dairy interest of the country has passed resolutions to annihilate ' oleomargarine,' the new food product. By the statutes of New York and New Jersey, the seller of oleomargerine as buttsr must he punished. So formidable and practical has the new trade already become that even the special committee of the New York Exchange makes litt...

The secretary read a letter from the general secretary, asking that the Branches, with a view ot facilitating basi neee, eheuld hold their meetings timalt&neansly in the week preceding the new moon. The letter stated that the central committee in tended in future holding their meetings on the first Saturday after the full moon in each month, and if the breeches coma comply wiui tnu request matters could be laid before them. A notice of motion was then brenght forward by Mr. Wm. English, to the effect that the central oommittee should not be allowed to issue manifestos of their own, expecting that whatever they were the branches wonld adopt them without even consulting them. For instance, before the recent elections he said a paper was sent to the branches from the central committee nomi nating eix members for tee Legislative Council, and reque...

Saturday. May 14. [Before Mr. S. Beddoure, P.M) William Hundley was charged on the informa tion of Michael Henry Maddigan with disturb ing the congregation of the Salvation Army at the barracks, Light-square, on May 12. Frcm the evidence it appeared that prisoner went to the place in question, and by his loud talking disturbed the congregation and was ordered out by the captain, whom he threatened to ' floor,' and to ' put his bunch of fives in his b_____ nose.' He also created a disturbance &nbsp; outside, causing a large mob to congregate. Prisoner, who said he preferred being tried by the Supreme Court, was committed for trial. Bail allowed in two sureties of £50.

KOOLUNGA, MAY 16. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 21 May 1881
KOOLUNGA, MAY 16. The farmers here are again agitating for a railway to this place. An endeavor is to be made this time to make the district unani- mous in advocating one particular line, as it is found that without such an agreement the line will not be obtained at all. A "monster public &nbsp; meeting" is called for the 31st to advocate the "Crystal Brook and Blyth line,'' and I believe &nbsp; townships will be invited to attend. I am of opinion that most of the farmers are unanimous in favor of this line, as they find that neither Snowtown nor Wallaroo is the market that they were led to expect. It is a well-known fact that railway communication is much needed for this place, aud I believe the route I have referred to will be the most suitable. This hundred has been settled nearly eight or nine years, and the price of the land has averaged, I should say, about £3 per acre, yet we are fifteen miles from any market. We are thoroughly entitled to a railway. It is tru...

THE MILITARY REVIEW AND SHAM FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
TBE MILITARY KHVflSW AND STTAM. FIGHT. If the character of a community may ba deduced from its amusements, the large number of persons who found their way to Monte lore Hill on Tuesday, the Queen's Birthday, to wit nets the volunteer reviewacd sham figBt clearly shoved that tbe martial spirit whioii is sai3 to animate every Englishman has not been oblite rated by transplanting to thete wanner and more effeminate climes. The day has passed when our best defence was our lnsigaifiaaoca, and the truth expressed in the aphorism, ' the best v-ay to preserve peace is to be prepared for war,' is slowly enforcing recognition. Com pared with the vast armaments of modern Europe our body of citizen soldiers is to tbe very latt degree insignificant, while it is numeri cally inferior to these of several of the other mote important of the Australian colonies. Admitting the truth of this we nuy derive some satisfaction, from the con viction that it is extremely improbable that in the immediate futu...
