ENGLAND'S DRINK BILL FOR 1880 [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

ENGLAND'S DBINK BILL FOR 1880 Tile English Excise and Customs returns for the year 1880 have been re cently published. The informationcontained therein is voluminous and valuable. In dealinsr with those of the previous vear in our leading columns about twelve months ago, we took the opportunity of pointing outwhat then appeared ss very satisfactory, that there was a marked decrease in the consumption of alcoholicstimulants through out England; and that although the wealth of the mother country was increas ing at an unprecedented rate the consump tion peT head of wine, beer, spirits, and other intoxicants was on the decline. Not only was this the case, but in addition figures proved that the sale and consumption of tea, coffee, and cocoa had materially increased during the year. The rapid spread and popularity of the coffee taverns movement had probably something to do in bring ing about such a desirable state of things. England's greatest sin has been, and is still, her drunkenness....

Intercolonial. OUR VICTORIAN LETTER. Melbourne, May 14. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

itttefltottM, OUK VICTORIAN liErTEB. rFrom our own Oorresnondent.l Melbourne. May 14. The Hon. John Woods, quondam Minister of EailwajB, is the very genius of irrepressibUity. His immeasurable conceit is only equalled by his wanton and instinctive love of misahief ; there is no pie into which he is not prepared ts put his finger, no question however abstruse or sacred which he is not prepared to deal with at a momenfB notice, and always with the light hearted and voluble flippancy which is Chirac teristic of conceit and shalkiwness. His ad ministration when he was at the headsf the railways waa perhaps the most costly and blundering that the country has known. He spent more money and did more mischief, it is eaid, than any one that ever preceded him, or. than any of his sseeessors are likely to have the temerity to do. He prided himself upon his energy and ac tivity, but while be made a show of bueiness by an ostentatious exhibition of these qualities he was the terror of all associ...

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. The Biity-firefc anniversary of the birth of Her Majesty- the Queen was celebrated on Tues day as a public holiday. The weather was by no means as fine as it should have been if we are to believe the traditions whioh obtain respecting the day, but a glance at the events chronicled this morning will show that the public managed to find means of enjoying thaai celves. The military review aud sham fight on the North Park Lands below Montefiore Hill attracted a large gathering of the public, and the mimic warfare appeared to create a grea5 deal of interest. The races on the popular cource brought together between 8,000 aad 10,000 peoole, and as the racing was good it may be sappo&ed that the amount of enjojmeat e£ ptriecced by those present was considerable. At the levee held by His Excellency th; Governor a larger cumber ef persons attended than has ever been known before at a similar occasion in the colony. There wero various holi day events, inoladirjgtf...

MR. GLADSTONE'S BUDGET. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

MR. GLADSTONE'S BUDGET. Fob, the eleventh time iu the course of his long parliamentary career Mr. Gladstone, as Chancellor of the Exchequer, has pre sented his budget. The right 'hon. gentle man's faculty for dealing 'with figures is admitted even by his bitterest opponents; he is known as the wizard of finance, and those who have heard him on one of his budget field-nights are not likely to forget the charm with which his eloquence can enliven the driest statistics and make their dead bones live. But the very fame of Mr. Gladstone leads to the anticipation that on every f reeh opportunity he will give new evidence of his power, and probably it is owing to the exaggerated expectations that have been formed o£ some great and masterly development jjof financial legerdemain that disappointment has been widely felt with the comparative tameness and unpretentiouaness of the present budget. Judging from the improve ment in the revenue returns in the first three quarters of the year — an i...

THE WESLEYAN CONFERENCE AND THE SO-CALLED NEW BRITAIN MASSACRE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

THE WESLEYAN CONFERENCE AKD THB SO-CALLED NEW BRITAIN MASSACRE. The Kev. George Brown has again had an opportunity of explaining the part he took in the 'New Britain affair,' and the Wesleyan Conference, to which he is re sponsible, has approved his conduct, while 'repudiating Tesort to military power in promoting the interests of the gospel of peace. Though the matters under debate took place more than two years ago, and though the facts have been thoroughly investiated both by the Home Government and by the New South Wales Conference, it was almost unavoidable that the subject should come under discussion at the Triennial Conference in which the united delegates of the Australasian Wesleyan Church assembled for the first time since the event occurred. We can sympathize with the manly sorrow and sense of duty which led the ex-president, whose own daughter was probably saved from death by the prompt action of Mr. Brows, to bring the missionary's conduct under strict though not unfri...

HUNDRED OF KING, MAY 21. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

HUNDRED OF KING, May 21. The crops here and in the Hundred of Bondey are just springing above the ground, and if we get rain again in a few days this year will prove whether or not the Eastern Plains will grow wheat. — The Hundred of Schomborgk will shortly be open for selection. There is some of the finest land in South Australia in this hun dred, and there are a great many people waiting for it to be put into the market. One of the faults of tbe present Land Act is that the squat ters are allowed to keep their stock on the land after it is' surveyed and ready for selection. Even when the new purchaser takes possesiioa of the land he usually finds it covered with the squatters' flocks. This, to the selector, is very annoying if he takes any stock on to the land, as be finds that the feed is all eaten down, and the consequence is that he has to buy food for his oattle and horses.

BANKS AND THE PUBLIC. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881

BANKS AND THE PUBLIC. TO THB XDI2OB. Eir — In your answer to your correspondent 'J. B.' yon have overlooked one important fact which seriously affects the supposed limited liability conferred upon shareholders by either a charter or an Act of Incorporation. Incorpo ration is a privilege conferred by charter or Act of Parliament. It is eenerally aooomDanied with certain restrictions imposed for the benefit of the public, such as a prohibition against lending en land, &c., the keeping specie in pro portion to note issue, and other provisions of a similar nature. If these conditions are not observed by the manager and directors, and the necessity for settling the question should arise, it will beionnd that by a disregard of the con ditions accompanying incorporation shareholders have lost the supposed benefit of limited liabi lity. This cannot be too widely and generally known, as it may induce a little more strict observance by banking companies, managers, directors, and share...
