FATHER PBENDERGAST ASKS FOR NAMES AS WEIiL AS AR GUMENTS. XO TEE EDTTOB. Sir — The increasing popularity of Home Rule for Ireland has been shown these last few days in South Australia by the number of anonymous letters against it, and by the fact tbat they have drawn forth no reply. You really ought to pubfeh no anonymous letters againBt Home Rule, except you are anxious to advanceitmorethanyougenerallygetcreditfor Should any of these liberty loving and intelli gent persons who are againBt Home Rule, not counting any who may have been lately re ferred to Dr. Mayo, wish to know some thing about it I recommend them to get a little book, published by A. M. Sullivan, in Dublin, in 1872, by John George McCarthy, on ' A Plea for the Home Government of Ire land,' in which he answers 28 objections . against it.

THE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

» ? THE HOUSE. The Aet of Puus Skwing. — Classes ara now being formed in Melbourne and ita suburbs for teaching plain sewing in all its branches, and lessons are to be given also in cutting out and making up clothing. This movement was originated by Lady Loch, and! other ladies bo interested themselves in the matter that a thoroughly qualified instructress _ —Miss Tegetmier— has been brought out front England to take charge of these classes. Very young children may be entered as pupils, ana young iftdiptF can have the benefit of instruction in more advanced work, such as bodice-cutting,' draping, &c All girls should be well drilled! in the use of the needle, because at every period of their lives whatever ttieirpoBi tion may be they will feel the need [o£ it. Many young ladies excel in different kinds of fancy work, but so far as plain needle work goes ace inexcusably ignorant It is much to be desired that the good example set us by the ladies of Melbourne will be followed i...

With autumn rapidly advancing upon, them my correspondents most ba needing warm bat liglt gowns, for which purpose the new rough surf&ced woollens are excellent. I use the ' word 'rough' merely as opposed to faced textiles, sueb as Amnzon cloth, which, by- the ? way, is very unsatisfactory wear, as in a short time the gloss disappears, and until this happens the material shows creases in ft most provoking way. The woollen I recommend is softer tban.eaahmere, and it wears admirably, does not crease readily, and certainly makeB op with eilk, moire, or velvet in charming manner. With long Directoire coat of the new color ([raize) or crashed strawberry and tablier front, and Bleeves of Boft woollen of the same shade or a little lighter in tone, yon have a most elegant toilet. The folded waistcoat should be of soft silk, exactly repeating the color of the woollen. The cuf...

SUNDAY WORK ON THE BARRIER MINES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

SUNDAY WORK ON THE BARRIER MINES. TO THE EDITOB. - Sir— In your issue of April lla correspon dent writes over the signature of 'Argus' con cerning Sunday work in the mines at Broken HilL As the letter is full of inaccuracies and miEBtatement8 calculated to mislead the public, . I ebaR be glad if you will give me space wherein to state facts as they are. ' Argue' is glad tbat the miners 'are waking up to the injus tice of being compelled to work on Sunday,' Now, as a rule, and one which all the mina managers, especially the Americans, do all they can to keep intact, no work is done in the mineB on Sunday. Now and again it happens that it is necessary to do some work, and on these occasions the miners are invited, not com pelled, to undertake it. The result of. the invitation is that a greater number of men than are required volunteer to do the -work, and as a matter of fact miners have been known to accuse a manager of partiality because they were unable to obtain labor on that day. ...

This being so I Bhould lite to know what will become of the subsidy, as if Government assistance ia to be granted for purely speculative purposes, I know several minee which will quickly make application. When the North Nairne was first started it was asserted that the stone would run 2 oz, throughout, then the average dropped to 1 oz., subsequently to 15 dwt,, and when Mr. Rose wam6 inspected tbe mine he was informed that 12 dwt. was the figure.

THE S.A. COLONISATION SOCIETY. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— In these prosaic days it is quite re freshing to study the philanthropic zeal dis played by tbe Rev. Mr. Honner and the S. &.. Colonisation Society, but it is sad to Bee such bigh-souled enthusiasm like the flower thafs ' born to blush unseen ' wasting ' its sweet ness on the desert air.'

On the contrary, nine out of ten are on tbe downhill grade.

They were prepared in a legitimate way to decide in the Legislative Hall for or sgainBt the question, and whatever the decision arrived at by the representa tives of the general public might be, the matter would have been there and then settled. It was, however, with surprise and indignation tbat the Ministry's recommendation to the Governor, and his consequent decision, were received.
