THE FAMINE IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
THE FAMINE IN CHINA. The Chinese have for so many centuries past held themselves aloof from ail the other nations of the earth, and the in terior of their vast empire Is still so little accessible to Europeans, that news of i the most stupendous disasters only filters Blowly through to the treaty ports, and thence dissemlrates itself over the world. Thus It Ib that calamities, which if they occurred in any other pact of the globe would send a pitying shudder xhtoug.iont humanity, attract comparatively little notice when they fall upon the swarming and passive crowds of* China, to us voiceless and unknown. Whenthegreatfire of Chicago in 1873 rendered thousands of .American families homeless and shelter less, subscriptions were opened through out Europe, from Dublin to Bada Pestb, and the call for aid was nobly responded to. And yet what was the misery caused by the Chicago fire compared with the awful visitation which fell on Northern China in 1887, when the Hoang-ho burst its banks?...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
XQ XHE EDUOB. Sir— Mr. Dillon asserts that the Irish people have Done of the privileges which are enj oyed by the tKngiTnii people ; that they have not liberty of speech, liberty of public meeting, nor ' in its true sense' trial by jury. Those who believe that- the Irish people have not liberty of speech need only tarn to the columns oiiiie Freeman's Journal ox United Ireland to find that they not only have liberty of speech. bat that it more frequently degenerates into license, They have as much tight of public meeting as ia possessed by the colonies or any free country: bnt when a public meeting is called for the express purpose of denouncing men who have simply exercised their right of taking a vacant farm, or of inducing people to enter into an illegal conspiracy, such as the Plan of Campaign has been declared by the lushest jodges to be, the Government, which is entrusted with the protection of persons and property; is bound ta interfere. It is true that for trial by jury hae b...
Correspondence. THE IRISH QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
SorccspmiDence. THE IEISH QUESTION. 10 THE MDCTOBi Sir — Will yon allow me, aa one who has fal lowed the Irbh controversy with some care, to comment on certain utterances of the Iriah delegates who have recently arrived. 1. Mr. Dillon states that the object of the Flan of Campaign was to obtain reductions of tent, and to save the tenants from eviction. With reference to this (a) there are duly ap pointed land courts in which the tenants can get a reduction of rent after a full and fair hnaring, bat under the Plan of Campaign they themselves are to determine what DroDortion. of their rent they will pay the landlord, (b) So far from preventing eviction, the Flan of Campaign, by inducing the tenants to pay over their rents to trustees instead of to the landlord, has directly brought about evic tions, and all the principal evictions of which we have heard during the last two years have taken place on estates where the Plan of Cam paign has been adopted. Thus, on the estate of Xiord Iian...

Here and there among the crowd of thoBe who were taking leave of friends at the Btation were some whose farewells were mingled with tears ; but the scene was one of bustle and great animation, and most of those who went and those who stayed seemed in hieh spirits. The snow lay on the ground, and the bud, shining out in the clear, crisp, atmosphere, caused it to sparkle and glisten in dazzling beauty, as if to show us at the last how fair could be the scene of an English winter in spite of its rigors, and to remind us that sli pleasure and all exhilaration are not con fined to the sunny clime to which we were goinsr. The tender which conveyed u...

GAMES UNDULY PROLONGED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
GAMES UHDUIT? PROLONGED. One of the conseauences that may possibly result from the undue prolongation of the games played in the B»tker-Smiu» matcn will be a rtvUion ot the present roles for the con duct of play. A Glaegow player offers the following suggestions :— ' If draughts matches are ever to become popular, the tioue h-jait for makiDg a move must be reduced from h»e t-j one minute, allowing each player anewner minute to mske amove, but psnaiwioqnimin time thus :— If a drawn game, takes 90 minutes, cut of which time one ot the pJayers has taken up 60 11.ir.utep, the one who has only taken 30 minutes for bis moveB should be credited with eay 30 pointp, and in the event of an eqaality of drawB the one with most points should be the winner. A Bharp player would thus pet seme credit for a valuable quality of mind, viz , decision. It would, I think, be poBBible to determine how many points gained in this way would equal a win, Let your readers turn this suggestion over in their min...

The Young Folks. A TROUBLESOME ELF. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

'Twas he who tried to scratch his name Upon a painted picture- frame; 'Twas he who left the gate untied. Which brindle cow pushed open wide ; 'Twas be who nibbled Lucy's cake She took such pains to mix and bake ; And, though we blamed tbe tricky mice, Twas he who cracked its fluted ice.

Our house would be a nicer place If he would never ehow his face ; We hope and hope some eunny day The naughty elf will run away, For oft he makes our spirits sink —...

THE BASIS OF MORAL LAW. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
THE BASIS OF MORAL LAW. [By Rev. W. J. Woods, B.A.J ' And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have none other gods before Me.' — Exodus xx., 1 — 3, Longfellow has said in language aB true as it is elegant that 'Morality without religion is only a kind of dead-reckoning, in endeavor to fiad our place on a cloudy sea by measuring the dis tance we have run without any observation of the heavenly bodies.' The analogy suggests how unsure and unsafe a guide morality is eveu for the life that now is ; and for the life that is to come it is of no avail whatever. Tae merely moral man, though his morality were uu blembhed and complete, has absolutely no claim upon the kingdom of heaven ; inasinach as eternal life is the free gift of God through Christ Jesus our Lord, and the condition of its bestowal is not morality but religious faith. Our fathers, therefore, rightly preached the ia Buf...
