It was .true they could have made other calif; but on communicating with the larger shareholders, they found that they were disinclined to continue paying them in consequence of the fall in copper, and the large amount of money that would be necessary to carry the mine to a successful issue.

THE TASMANIAN LOAN; (From onr own Correspondent.] London, April 13. : The protest raised by the directors of the Tasmanian Main Line Railway against the loan placed on the London market by the Tasmanian Government is based on the misappropriation of previous loans.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
TO THE EDITOB. Sir — The thanks of the community are due to you as editor of the leading journal of South Australia for your wise and temperate article in Saturday's Advertiser on Mr. Dillon and Irish affairs; also to your correspondent, ' ' Unionist,' for his able and truthful exposures of various mis-statements on the same subject. His letters contrast strongly with Mr. Berens's letter of to-day. But for Mr. Dillon s attempt to raise money by misrepresentation, for the purpose of further ' making all government in Ireland impossible,' I would not have turned up the following, which will, I am sure, interest the nine-tenths of our population who do not believe in the Land League and its ways. It is undeniable that agrarian crimes were few and far between until meetings con vened in the interest of the league began to be frequent in Ireland. Then crimes became frequent in nearly- exact proportion as those meetings were more or less frequent, and were more or less violent, according ...

THE PORT AUGUSTA SHOOTING CASE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889
THE FORT AUGUSTA SHOOTING CASE. TO thb XDTTOB. Sir— If the Rev. M. Wood Green has not contracted the habit of carrying a shooting iron in his breeches pocket, as many do in the United States, hia mind baB surely been con taminated by what he saw during his recent travels in the States, or he would never advo oate such sanguinary measures as he does in your issue of the 8th inst. I have heard of a rev. gentleman in the Southern States who, hearing of improper proposals being made to bis sister, rode loo miles on Horse back and shot his man 'on Bight.' This American custom of the use of the revolver agrees witb that of the Spaniards, Portuguese, fee., who substitute the stiletto or knife for the more noisy weapon, and argue that the use of the knife in assassination equalises matters, aB the man who has been wronged should not be called upon to ran any farther risk as in a duel. Is this the custom Mr. Green would like to see established here in South Australia 2 Or would the rev, gent...
