Defective Bails. On Monday, December 88, an enquiry was held at the courthouse, Port Augusta, on the subject of the defectivenils which were supplied by Hopkina, Oilkes, h Co- for the Por.t Augusta and Government Qumi Bauwayi 'For somereasm or other,' says the Por Auffiuta Mrfatcfc' which nobody can under stand, the edquiry was a prirate one, no representatives of the press nor any of the general public being admitted. This, however, is of very little consequence, aa the public already know enough of the efiair to be thoroughly disgusted with the whole matter. The fante already known are these t— That the late Government sent home an order for a large quantity of rails ; that the order was given to tfopkina, GiJus, *JCfl^ jbit_fi!e_ Afiejot OeneraT was instructed * accordingly j that officers were appointed, to^ examine and seport unto the quality of the rails so supplied ; that those officers we» incompetent; or capable of being bought by the contractors, and that in cons quence ab...
THE LATE TRIAL OF HARVESTING MACHINES. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 1 January 1880
THE LATE TRIAL OF HARVESTING MACHINES. The following letter has appeared in the Advertiser .?— . TO THI XDFTOB. Sib— We herewith forward von a oanv of protest we have entered in the matter of the decision of the judges at the late trial of har vesters. We would ask you to make what comment you may consider it entitled to in the cause of justice, not atone to us but to the colony, as we think such a decision is calcu lated, instead of encouragiug, to discourage honest competition in the matter, as it appean very strange that tbe leading position should be given to a machine which failed to reap three acres in five hours twice out of three times ; that the second position should be awardod to a machine which cast' all the' drake, wild oats, and refuse oa the land, and that a machine which complied with all tb,e requirements in two trials without any hitoh should be tamed out. We would also ask through your colocms that some of those farmers who were present at the trial to give their ...
Retrospect and Prospect. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 1 January 1880
$^tjospect and Prospect, Once more we have to speed the old year an,d welcome the new. The last moments of 1879 are upon us, and the year which has shewn us many a new scene, and introduced us all to a rariety of altered circumstances is nearly gone. One thing alone is certain — that we can never now recall its moments either to do or undo what we h£.Ye omitted or done. The year opened with a prospect not of tbe brightest, and though, on the whole, it lias served us better than we had hoped, jet its course has been one. of difficulty and reverse to rery many of our colonists.. Trade has been bad and money very scarce, and for the time a great, check has, been put upon our progress. The pastoral interest, though better-, than the others^ nas. not been as nourishing as in other seasons : the T»^''T^g enterprise has almost been destroyed among us, though just at the close of the year prices advanced ; and Hie agricuIturafi«Es— the mainstay of our prosperity — have been, seriously disco...

COPY OF FKOTBBT. Iiaura. Decemhpr 29 1R7Q,. To the Hon. the Commissioner of Crown Lands, South Australia. Sts — We tbe undersigned, having been com petitors in the trial of wheat harvesters for the bonus of £4,000 offered by the Government, and feeling that justioe baB not beea done to us by the judges, beg respectfully to request that their decision be set aside, and that a fresh competition take place next harvest under different judges, and further that the wishes and requn entente of the Government be dis tinctly and clearly act forth as early in the year as convenient-. The grounds of our protest are — That all of the machines selected for the final trial failed to do the required amount of wark , that we did tbe full three acres twenty-five minutes under the stipulated time at the first trial; that none of them made provision in the con struction to save the chaff and rubbish, which we did.

The English Copper Market. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 1 January 1880
The English Copper Market. The state of the cop wr market in England is thus referred to in the London Mining Journal of November 15 : — Daring the past week the market has been rather quiet, but fairly ateaoy considering tba general position of affairs. Prices have slightly turned in buyers favor and the preepect of deenv money alone will probably increase that tendency. Our remarks upon this metal lately have been con sidered strong, bat they are not any etronger than we intended, at we entertain a very de cidad opinion upon the changes in oar market and tbe effect they will produce. We can quite understand that oirain interested parties would have preferred different reports to these issued, and tht refers they appear somewhat annoyed on finding the market represented in its true light, bat it is not in our power to alter facts, and all that we have stated is that the market to a large extent is speculative, and that the rise was chiefly effected by speculation ; bat we now go a ...

That Telephonic. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 1 January 1880
That Telephonic. General Baxter, np on Tine-street, never did hanker much af?er telephonies. When Edison first proclaimed to the world that sound could be transmitted by win. he was heard to remark that it was another humbug, a needless luxury to the country, and an additional proof of the nnsonndness of the present administration. And later, when Baxter, Jan., constructed a primitive affair from the general's best trolling line, connecting bis bedroom window witb that of a chum's across the way, he showed his dislike more prominently by* catting the communication and a maple a witch at the same time. Young Baxter soon found out that the latter flank movement of his father's was the unkindest cut of all. But when the telephonie fever at list struck Bochester, and the feet of the workmen harried to and fro upon the housetops until the city commenced to look like an inverted sieve, the friends of the general said he must have a telephone. At the count ing-room his partners importuned ...
