FOREST RANGE WATER RESERVE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
FOREST RANGE WATER RESERVE. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I beg to call the attention of the public to the action of the East Torrens District Council in regard to the water reserve at Forest Range. A poor man who has no shelter other than a tent wrote to the district council requesting permission to rent a portion of the reserve as a camping ground. His re quest was reiusea ana ne went to tiie city ana secured a 'miner's right, confident that he would now be allowedto erect his tent on the ground, but the council still refused him per mission. I have always understood that the reserves were open for the accommodation of the public. I think it very hard that a man should give the Government 5s. and then be done cut of his camping_ ground. There are several poor families living near this reserve who have been able to make a few shillings out of the blackberries wherewith to purchase the necessaries of life, but the reserve has changed hands, and the East 'lorrens council have allowed someone ...

[Published by special arrangements with the author. ? All rights reserved.] Chapihu V. — A Man's Pride. Mr. Stafford had prepared Florence Dane to tear of her great inheritance, but still the terms of her uncle's will startled and surprised her. A burning flush rose to her pale cheeks as she listened to the clause relating to her marriage and she felt almost overcome with confusion and agitation. But only a minute or eo. after the lawyer's voice had ceased someone grasped her hand, [and when she raised her eyes a vague sense ot disappointment passed through her heart. For it was Stephen Wilde who had first re covered from the shock of finding that his name was not even mentioned in Mr. Dane's will, and he now warmly shook his cousin's hand. ' Let me be the first to congratulate you...
RABBIT DESTRUCTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
RABBIT DESTRUCTION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — As the rabbit plague is such a serious matter it may be of benefit to a considerable number of your readers to know that by follow ing the instructions given below the pest can be poisoned very eas-ly and cheaply even along side of a crop of green wheat or when the grass is green. Dissolve 4i in. (about l£ oz.) phosphorus in a quart of hot water in an earthen vessel. Dissolve 4 jo. sugar m two quarts of boiling water in a kerosine drum. Mix the two solutions together, keep it continually stirred to prevent the phosphorus from going together, stir in sufficient pollard to make a stiff dough, roll into balls about, the size of beans, and lay three or four on buckheaps, first cleaning a space about a foot square in the centre. A machine may be obtained for 20s. from Messrs. Harrold Bros, that will make the pellets very rapidly, and enough phosphorus may be got for 10s. from Messrs. Faulding and Co. to kill thousands of rabbits. — lam, &c...
Selected Poetry. TWO DREAMS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
1 ^i-Ii-H'i-!i ^itHru TWO DREAMS. Two dreams came down to earth one night From the realm of mist and dew ; One was a dream of the old, old days, . . I And one was a dream of the new. One was a dream of shady lane ' That led to the pickerai pond, Where the willows and rushes bowed them i pelves To the brown old hills beyond. ^.nd the people that peopled the old time ,-: dream : ? Were pleasant and fair to see. And the dreamer he walked v/ith them again . As often of old walked lie. Oh, cool was the wind in the shady lane That tangled his curly hair ! Oh, sweet was the music the robins made To the springtime everywhere ! Wad it the dew the dream had brought From yonder midnight skies, Or was it the tears from the dear, dead years That lay !in the dreamer's eyes? The other dream ran fast and free As the moon benignly shed Her golden grace on the shining face . In the little trundle bed. For 'twas a dream of the busy world, Of the glorious noon of day — Of the summer that follows the ca...
METHODIST AMALGAMATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
METHODIST AMALGAMATION. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — Much has been made of the circum stance that the General Conference passed resolutions in favor of the amalgamation of the several branches of the Methodist Church and adopted a basis on which such amalgama tion uiierhfc be effected. A*nd it is arprued that the decision of the General Conference binds loyal Methodists to proceed with the business of organic union. But what are the facts of the case ? The General Conference having pronounced generally in favor of union, and defined a basis, proceeded to empower the annual Conferences, if and when they thought fit, to effect union, but determiued that in no case should amalgamation take place without a two-thirds vote of the Conference effecting it. In other words each annual Conference has the perfect and unfettered right to proceed with amalgamation or not ; but in case the re solve is to proceed it must be on the basis laid down by the General Conference. It is- an open question with eve...

Correspondence. THE PASTORAL BILL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
€8mmmxbzntb THE PASTORAL BILL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir-y-From the reports that have appeared of the discussion in Parliament on the word 'value' it seems to me that the great objec tion to the clause as it stands in the Bill has not been clearly put. Under the very much discussed Interpretation Act of 1887, which lessees for reasons which need not here be given considered as a cruel cutting of covenants, the meaning given to the word 'value' was the 'actual cost' of water improvements including the appliances for distribution of water, less deductions for depreciation. The Act of 18U3 lessens, however, the value of this provision, by providing that no value should be attached to any improvement 'in excess' of the value which would have been attached thereto by interpreting the word 'value' iu accordance with the definition contained in section 3 of the Act of 3887. Under this provision therefore if the value of the improvement was say ten times what was its actual cost a lessee could not...

LAWN TENNIS NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
LA WN TENNIS NOTES. [By Racket.] To-day is the monthly holiday for members of the association, and players will have an opportunity of that practice which. so many of them very badly need. The Glen Osmonds journeyed to the Semaphore on Saturday lost.and easily defeated a weak team from the local club. Lang and Carter being unable to play their places were filled by E. and H. Allnutt, while the visitors played Bowen and Pridmore, Murray and Seaile. Bowen and Pridmorc opened against J. All nutt and Farquhar, who won the first game, but- the Glen pair scored six games in succession, while in the second set the Semaphore pair took the first two, but Bowen and Pridmore again won the ntxt six games. Murrayand Seaile lost to E. and H. Allnult, 4-0, 6—3, 1—0. Eoth the Glen wen ployed very badly, especially Searle, who missed many easy chances to score, while both men were too often out of their places. The Semaphore pair both piayed a sure jrame, and tossed with considerable judgment. In th...
The Week. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
iEkelEcek. On Tuesday afternoon the Premier laid on the table of the House of Assembly the corre spondence which has taken place between him self and the Premier of New Zealand from October 28 to November 6 on the subject of the reciprocity treaty. On the former date Mr. Seddon telegraphed .-—'Regret House rejected treaty to-night by majority of two; New South Wales free-trade policy principal cause.' On October 31 Mr. - Kingston wired:— 'We note with plea sure that the Treaty Bill has passed its second reading by a largo majority, and we ' will take the necessary steps for securing the revival of the matter in our Assembly. The previous advice of the loss of the second read ing in your House of Representatives had ' induced the discharge of the order of the day with us.' On the same day Mr. Kingston re ceived the following reply; — 'As previously ? advised HouBe by-two votes rejected Reciprocity Bill yesterday ; got it reinstated, and to-day it finally passed both branches of the L...
COMPARATIVE RAILWAY STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
v COMPARATIVE RAILWAY STATISTICS. The Railway Commissioner has cour teously furnished us with a comparative table of statistics relating to the Austral asian State railways, which has been pre pared by Mr. Pickering, the Comptroller of Accounts. The figures all relate to the year ending June 30, 1895, except in ,the case of New Zealand, for which the railway year ended March 31 last is taken, andTas mania, whose statistics are for the calendar year 1894. In the seven Australasian systems, totalling 12,637 miles of line, £124,539,824 of capital has been in vested, and it is interesting to compare the results of the invest ment in the various colonies during a period of general depression. Propor tionately to population, South Australia is much better provided with railways than any other colony of the group ex cepting Queensland. We own a mile of railway for every 202 people. In the northern colony every 191 people are similarly accommodated ; in Victoria every 378 ; in Now South Wal...
The Chronicle. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1895. HARVEST PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1895. HARVEST PROSPECTS. October is generally regarded as the month which of all the twelve is the most critical in the growth of the wheat crops. We are always glad to have early rains in March to start theyweeds, bo that the land may be properly^prepared for the seed-sowine with the prospect of a good clean crop. The weather during May and June has much to do with the early growth of the plant and the produc tion of plenty of feed for stock. During October, however, the fate of the farmer is practically sealed. Let the weather be moist and muggy, and we hear more than rumors of redrust. Let it be dry, and the wheat ceases to grow properly and sends up thin spindly stems which all too speedily mature, or in extreme cases blight off altogether. A favorable October means, almost regardless of the rest of the season, a good wheat harvest. This year the critical month has been phenomenally dry, and as a result the crops are in a very sad condition; Many fields whi...

DR. CORNELIUS HERZ. REPORTED TO BE DYING. London, November 5.

VENEZUELA. LONDON, November 4. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
VENEZUELA. London, November 4. Telegrams from New York state that the Government of the United States is of opinion that the shooting of Captain Garcia, of the British schooner Myosotia, by the Venezuelan coastguards affords Great Britain ground for prompt and vigorous action in pressing claims for reparation on Venezuela. America will remain neutral in the matter, as it is felt that the Monroe doctrine does not applj\ London, November 5. The Government of Venezuela asserts that the schooner Myosot'iB, although sailing under the British flag, was a locally-owned smuggler, and that Captain Garcia, who was shot dead by the coastguard, was not a British subject.

THE LIVE STOCK TRADE. LONDON, November 5. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
THE LIVE STOCK TRADE. London. November 5. The London Times to-day publishes a letter rom the secretary of the Society for the Pre enticn of Cruelty to Animals with reference o the live stock trade between Australia and England. The writer affirms that the traffic in live cattle is most inhuman, and gives a graphic description of the suilerings endured oy the animals during the long voyage from Australia to London. The experiences of the mortality among the shipments of live stock by the steamers Woolloomooloo, Perthshire, and Southern Crass, are sufficient, it is declared, to prove that in the cause of humanity it is necessary that immediate steps should be taken for the suppression of the traffic.
