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

TO TEE EDUOB, ' Sir— I am pleased that a etir haa been made in Richardson's case, aa I have met several jurymen who say that they would have brought ' in a verdict of not guilty rather than allow him to be punished to the extent be ie. It is one of those JDBtifiable crimes in which the seducer end seduced should be punished. I believe that Richardson's is not the only home that has been destroyed in Port Augusta by similar means, and if a vote were taken on the side of morality that Richardson would get 99 out of every 99 recorded* Unless a more reason able view is taken of cases of thiB description the law will soon be altered by the voice of the majority of this land. Englishmen endure, then agitate, and at last rebel. We are in the second stage, the sooner the last comes the better for all concerned. — I am, &c, ? ANOTHER BENEDICT. ;

THE LOBETHAL TWEED FACTORY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE LOBETHAL TWEED . FACTORY. TO THE EDITOH. Sir— I Bee by the prospectus of the Lobathal Woollen -Factory that it is proposed to remove the factory because, aB stated, a plentiful sup ply of suitable water cannot be obtained at LobethaL I would have written before bat I should not like to interfere with the sale of ths shares, aa more capital is really wanted to make the factory a success. As I see that the sbareB are rapidly being taken up I think the time has now arrived to bring certain facts before the public. Lobethal has more than sufficient good water for one 'er more faotoriea if a reservoir 1b constructed. It is a well known fact that Lobethal has one of the highest rainfalls in the colony, last year we had over 40 inohes of rain in 11 months, and therefore plenty of the very best water, which can be conserved if a reservoir were constructed in the gullies at a small cost, say about £800. ? Then we should have plenty of the very bast ? rainwater all the year round. There a...

'. : . '; ? . TO THIS EDCI03. Sir— I am not foolish enough to imagine that any wordB of mine, or anybody else's, would i-tiave any influence on the blind followers of i Mr. Dillon, but I trust there are Borne English ? and Scotch readers of The Advertiser who may care to read an instance of the operations of the National League, and of the working of tbe ariBting land laws of Ireland, which a*e represented as being bo inhuman as to justify ; landlords being ' shot down like partridges ia September,' to quote the forcible expression of Mr. Matthew Harris, HP. Many years ago an Irishman purchased an estate. A large farm on it fell vacant. Out of many applicants cne was selected, who agreed to pay £108 a year rent. The land has since then greatly in creased in value, owing to the opening of a railway in the neighborhood. NevertneleBS, not tang ago, the tenant went to tbe landlord and demanded a reduction of £39 a year. ThiB the landlord, who waB a practical farmer, and thoroughly under...

1O THE EDITOB. Sir — Anyone perusing Mr. Dillon's speech and Fcb&eqncntly the very remarkable letters of 'Unionist' published in The Advertiser of Saturday and Monday last, must come to the conclusion that either by one or the other we South Australians are being humbugged. Should tbe statements and figures so ably marshalled by ' Unionist,' and which bear the impress of a masterhand, remain uncontra dicted by Mr. Dillon and his colleagues, surely the reasonable and reasoning portion of the publio of this colony niuet feel that at any rate they have been furnished with food for reflection.— I am, &c, INTERESTED. -

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

TO XHB EDITOR. Sir — I have read with interest the critique of ' Unionist' on Mr. Dillon's speech. He says many things worthy of consideration, yet there are certain broad facts which are not presented by him, but which weigh heavily upon the minds of modern Liberals in favor of granting to the Irish nation power to manage its local affairs. We English did a profound initial wrong in conauering Ireland, and as a nation we are most responsible in the sight of con science for the terrible succession of wrongs by Irish toward British and British toward Irish which have sprung from that initial wrong. As a nation we owe the Irish an immense atonement and immense for bearance. It is true we disestablished the Irish Protestant churches. Bnt what a wicked wrong it was ever to establish them — what iniquity to collect tithes by British bayonets from Romish people to support a form of wor ship they abhorred. This England did for generations. Are the Irish to melt with gratitude because we ha...

10 THE KDITOB. Sir— As Mr. Dillon has given to the people of South Australia his version of the events of the past few years in their relation to question of Home Rule, the Land League, and the Plan of Campaign, it would, I think, only be fair that some few facts should be taken into consideration by way of justification of the policy and action of the Unionist party. On October 27, 188L some weeks after the .Liberal Cabinet had asked for 'additional powers necessary to secure protection for hie and property and personal liberty of action,' the Prime Minister (Mr. Gladstone) speaking at Liverpool said — 'It is idle to talk of either law or order, or liberty, or religion, or of civilisation, if these gentlemen (the leaders of the Land League) are to carry through the reckless and chaotic schemes that they have devised. Rapine is the first object. Rapine is not the only object. It is perfectly true that they with to march through rapine to disintegration and dis memberment of the Empi...

THE SCHOOL OF MINES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE SCHOOL OF MINES. TO THE KDITOB, Sir — I notice in a recent issue that Mr. Vivian JohnMallicotthasina not very classical manner taken me to task for presuming to give expression to my opinion with regard to the School of Mine*. I suppose I ought to feel sorry for having caused pain to a gentleman of such delicate, sensibility and 'varied ex perience' as he seems to be, and at the same time deeply grateful that the fates have been so propitious at this particular juncture as to allow such a bright and particular star as an 'English graduate' to appear in order to enlighten my benighted mind, and to correct (in his opinion) my childish arguments. As one of the workers I s»y that if any opposition has been raised with regard to the teaching of mathematics it has not been from us, as we are aa folly alive to its importance as M V.J.M.' is, We only opposed the entrance exam,, and fully appreciate the action of the committee in the matter. There is however, one piece of infor mation th...

THE WILD DOG NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE WILD DOG NUISANCE. TO THB EDITOR. Sir— I would like to call the attention of the Government to the increasing number of wild dogs in some of the settled districts, Doubt leBB it their intention in leasing agricultural and other blocks of rough country to have the vermin extirpated, but I would like to ask is this being carried out? Or has anyone been appointed to see .that conditions of such leases are complied with 1 No one of course cares to make himself officious, and complain about his neighbors ; but someone should see that the intentions of Government are carried oat. There can be no question as to the large amount of damage done by the dingo. Not only are flocks attacked in the yard at night, but in broad daylight under the shepherd's eye, while those who have fenced paddocks cannot let their sheep run in them without someone to guard them. I think every means possible should bejused to rid the country of this vermin, and all lessees of country where the dingo resorts be ...

BAKER'S CREEK GOLD MINE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

BAKER'S CREEK GOLD MINE. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— When the directors of this mine re turned from Armidale they assured the share holders that the lease difficulty with the Baker's Creek* Nprth had been satisfactorily arranged. A great deal of speculation has arisen amongst the shareholders as to what the nature of this arrangement was. It has leaked out through unofficial sources that no. cash payment was made, but that -the use of the tramway when completed and tbe crushing ot the North Company's ore with the Baker's Creek battery formed the basis of settlement. If this be true it is not reassuring to share holders. Did the directors take measures to secure the lease of the ground upon which their batteries are erected? Is there any limit to the quantity of stuff which the North Company can command them to crush at any given moment? This latter question is one which the anxious shareholders would be glad to have answered without delay. If there should be no limitation we may be sure the...

THE SUGAR BOUNTIES. LONDON, April 16. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE SUGAR BOUNTIES. [Fiona our own Correspondent.] London, April 16. It Is considered doubtful whether the Bill Introduced Into the House of Com mons for the ratification of the convention concluded between the English, German, and other Governments for the Imposition of heavy taxes on bounty-fed sugar imported into their territories will be carried. The Unionist Liberals, upon whose support the Government de pend for their continuance In office, are strongly against the Bill. The French Government have refused to co-operate in the tre»tyvand have threatened reprisals in the event of the exclusion of their own sngars from Great Britain. The sugar market Is excited in consequence of the statement of Baron H. de Worms, In the House of Commons, that a scarcity of sugar was- expected. Beet sugar has already risen, the present quotation being 21s. 3d. per cwt,, or 2s. higher than the last quo tation. ___^________

FATAL ACCIDENT AT THE WEIR. A CORPORATION EMPLOYE DROWNED. Ae&d fatality occurred at the TorrenB at about 1 p.m. on Wednesday by which Mr. Patrick MoNamara, who was working in com pany with tbe city surveyor (Mr. J. £L Iiangdon) at the weir, lost his life. It appears that the deceased and Mr. Lang don were standing on some of the debris that had collected at the weir, endeavoring to remove a large log which had brought up against one ot the sluice screws. Suddenly, withnnfc anv vr&mine the debris on which they stood moved away, and they were both precipitated along with it over the weir into the raging stream running below. Immediately on the accident beinsr perceived a large number of people ran down the banks of the stream beyond the weir in the hopes of rescuing tbe men. For a few seconds - nothing was seen of either, but in a Bhort time Mr. Langdon was noticed in the middle of the stream swimming for the eastern bank.

THE MAYOR ON THE SCENE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 20 April 1889

THE MAYOR ON THE SCENE. The Mayor of Adelaide (Mr. James Shaw) bad no sooner heard of the disastrous nature of the floods than he proceeded to the city weir, where he remained without sustenance for almoBt 24 hours. It was impossible to do much, but all that could be done for the relief of people in the locality was done by Mr. Shaw, and in such a manner as is likely to characterise 'his assumption of tbe municipal reins of government as the most popular mayor Adelaide has ever known. Mr. Shaw did everything in his power to alleviate the suffer ings of persons who had been injured by the flood, and any one who visited the weir on Wednesday afternoon must have recognised the extent to which the appeals on the chief magistrate of the city were likely to be made. Everything in the vicinity of the dam was sloppy— everything semedto predict a catastrophe, lit was unnecessary for a stranger to see the immense crowd of persons congregated in the neighborhood of the weir to aek what had hap...
