THE MONUMENT TO LORD BEACONSFIELD. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
THE MONUMENT TO LORD BEAOONSFIELD. TO n'HH BDITOB. Sir — I am sore that all persons of moderate opinions will hail with satisfaction the news of the defeat of the extreme Radical party in their endeavor fce prevent the erection of A nnHwini monument to the late Bail of Beaoonsfield. Many persons nave, no doubt, wondered what reasons those gentlemen could advance to rapport their oppo sition. It is tine he was throughout his political life the exponent of principles which were the antipodes of their own ; true that their so called reforms (aiming as they do at the destruc tion of almost all that is worth preserving in the Constitution) found in him their most indefatigable ana powerful opponent, but one would have thought that the mere fact of this political enmity would not have prevented Englishmen, whose generosity to a foe is pro verbial, from giving their support to a testi monial which his versatile and magnificent genius demanded. That he possessed that genius his moat implaca...
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
AGRICULTURAL NOTES. Some nice showers have fallen during the past week, which altogether has been characterised by seasonable weather. Re ports of grass growing nicely and crops looking healthy reach us from many direc tions, and at a meeting of a Farmer's Association held in the North recently, the chairman congratulated the members on the seasonable weather they had experienced, and the improvement in their prospects. We hope that this state of things is a characteristic of the colony generally as the farmers have had anything but bright times of late years, and a change for the better would now b^ most welcome. The reports from the country districts in Victoria show that the crops are making good progress and that the grasB is springing up well, and the news from New South Wales is also of a satisfactory character. 'We observe from the letter of our West Australian correspondent, which appears in another column, that several South Aus tralian farmers have been writing to him, ask...

COMMONAGE IN THE HUNDRED OF BONNEY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
COMMONAGE IN THE HUNDRED OF BONNEY. TO SHB XDITOB. f Sir— During the past fifteen yean, until the bad harvests compelled me to adopt other methods than wheat-growing to support myself and family, I paid so much per head for right of ruuBing cattle in this district. This year as usual my fee was forwarded to the Surveyor General's office, and strange to say the amount was returned with a statement to the effect that there is no commonage available in the hundred, and that the lands are shortly to be offered on lease to the highest bidder. How, I would like to know what I am to do with my cattle? If the squatter, aeainst whom of ceurse I cannot compete buys all common age, the'other farmers in the .neighborhood and myself will have to drive our cattle to market or perhaps sacrifice them atone-eighth their value. It is a ename to allow such glaring impositions. Fortunately, we are blest with very good men in the squatters in the hundred, and I don't think either Mr. Bowman or Mr. Hughe...
MARINE SURVEYORS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
MABME SURVEYORS. *© TBB SDICOB. Sir— In your paper some time since appealed a paragraph to the effect that Captain Leuare licensed marine surveyor, had written to the Treaenier complaining that the Marine Board chip surveyor had been allowed to survey vessels for private parties, and that the Treasurer's reply was very evasive. It is genanlly under stood that some of the Larbor-maiters at the outports aat as enrvejers on behalf of the Under writers' Association. It certainly appears questionable whether Government officials should be allowed to interfere with license* enrvejors when there are so many anooonected ?witb the public service who are quite as capable, to say the least, to Tmflcrta^ 1Uch duties.— ] am,&&, , Pott Adelaide, May 85.

THE WHEAT YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 28 May 1881
THE WHEAT YIELD. The agricultural returns are now in the hands of the acting Government Statist, who has furnished us with the total yield of last harvest and the quantity of land bearing wheat, also a comparison with area under crop in 1879-80, and the aggre gate produce of that season. There has been more delay than usual in furnishing this in formation, owing to the collectors of the returns having at thejsame time to take the census and collect returns of persons enti tled to vote for the election of members of Parliament. This last duty was rendered more burdensome; and took up more time than it should have done, owing to -a -vast amount of utterly useless work being imposed upon the collectors at the request of the Returning-OfEicer for the province. The account of the wheat yield is anything but satisfac tory, but it now will take few persons by surprise, as since the harvest was gathered there has been ample time to correct early calculations, and get a fair idea of what sor...
