THE IRISH QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
THE IKISH QUESTION. 10 THE EDITOB. Sir— In spite of numerous well-known facts, including those mentioned by 'Unionist,' many a Nationalist, such as yonr correspondent 'J. Miller,' boldly asserts and strenuously maintains that from 1782 to 1800, when she had a Parliament of her own, Ireland was rapidly rising in the scale of nations, popula tion was icoieasing) trade, commerce, manu iacbureg, auu agnuuivure were nuuxisuiug, uui since then decay, stagnation, and poverty have taken the places of progress, activity, and prosperity. So far from this being a correct statement the reverse is nearer the truth. Not withstanding the many troublesome periods through which Ireland has passed during the present century her trade and com merce, &c, have been greatly increased, This will be clear to you when yon conBider the following facts:— In 1801, the year after the union, the imports from Great Britain were but £3,270,350, and exports thither £3,537,725; in 1830 they were £7,G48.9?6 a...
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
TO THE BDITOB. Sir— I have *ead the interesting correspon dence which baa appeared in your valuattle paper re the Hoxte Rule question. My object in writing is to point out that there is one clause in the programme of Home Rulers whitib could be well applied in theae colonies, viz , the reduction of recta for tenements of * very inferior character, and which said rent* might (to use an Irish word) be really termed rack-rentB. Unfortunatehr in lanra nihina such tenements are always to be found, and the bard- working poor have (from tbe seeming cheap rental) to find their habitation there. Their rent varies from 5a. to V£i. or 13a, per week — an exorbitant price when we consider the character of these dwellings. Should the tenants be behind hand with their rent their chattels are taken from them and they themselves are turned into the street. Now, I have been a witness to several of these evictions, and bavenaturally enquired about tbe owner. In the majority of instances I have found h...
Correspondence. [For other Correspondence see page 5.] MR. RUSSELL ON MR. COLES'S INTIMIDATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
Cgmgpmtbeftce, (For other Correspondence see page 0.) MP. RUSSELL ON MR. OOLES'3 INTIMIDATION. TO THE KDITOB. Sir — Being one of those who took part in the public meeting that was held in Oarrieton on the 35tb inst., I take the opportunity of thank ing you for the fair and impartial report tbat you have given the public. Without wishing to trespass on yesr valuable space I require in justice to myself to refer to the attitude of the Hon, J. Coles aa assumed by the hon, gentleman at tbe meeting in question. First, why was be pre&ent at all ? The meeting was expreesly convened for giving the Hon. T. Playford an opportunity of explaining his con' duct in Parliament as a repi eeentative of the distiict, and as Mr. Playford got a fair hearing why (should Mr. Coles interfere between the electors of Newcastle and their supposed re presentative? 1 fail to see tbat Mr. Coles had any claim to be heard by the meeting until the motion moved by me was settled for or against Mr. Playford....
TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
TO TinE EnTTOR. Sir— In the last paragraph of Mr. KusselUa letter in your issue of 24th inst., he says — 'Mr. Coles said in reference to me as a selec tor that I had surrendered my holdings twice and got them back at £1 0b. 6d. per acre. Now, there is no truth in that statement whatever, as I never did anything of the kind ; and I ask Mr. Coles to correct his statement or with draw it.' No one knows better than Mr. Russell T Aifi not. fnalrn tha Rfn.f Ampnt nnnf^nr). TTa wbb present at the meeting, heard exactly what I said, and took no exception to it. When hehaa the grace to quote me correctly, and is able to show any inaccuracy on my part, X shall be happy to correct it. I will only add as regards Mr. RusBeH'e reckless and unfounded sugges tion of intimidation} that his own experience as a 'defaulting selector' must teach him that selectors have no reaBon to fear harsh treat ment from me,— I am, &c , JENKIN COLES. Adelaide, April 25, 18S9.
The Beehive. USEFUL HINTS FOR MAY. PREPARATION FOR WINTER. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
Wxt §tthM USEFUL HINTS FOR MAY. [Bx Ceaeles Diceks,] TBEPABAHON FOB WEJTEB,' If beekeepers have not yet prepared their hives for winter, as recommended in last month's hints, it will be well for them to do so without loss of time. I should also advise a little extra warm dry covering to be placed upon the enamelled quilt, most especially in the hills and cold districts. The bees should be rendered warm and comfortable, carefully ex cluding all draughts at the top of the hive to prevent any loss of heat. Bees that have a little extra covering and are kept dry and warm thronch the winter coma out much stronger and healthier in the spring. It is necessary to over haul all hives before the cool weather sets in to make sure that they are all right and well sup plied with food. Now is a good time. for painting any hives that may require it, and es pecially look to the roof, stopping up any cracks with putty before painting; it is of great importance to keep the cover proof against any lea...

IMPROVING THE STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
IMPROYHSG THE STOCK. In order to improve the ordinary stock with out getting rid of all the birds the yearly in troduction of a number of pure-bred cocks should be effected. This is a much slower pro cess than the purchase of a few fowls to form a breeding pen, but it has the manifest advan tage ot the least interference with the regular courEe of things. The point to be obgerved is that the type of fowls to be secured must be determined upon and adhered to, or there will hn ' nnnfnRinn TOnrsn confonnded.' What this type should be will have to be determined by the qualities demanded, the place wherein the fowls are kspt, and the personal predilections of the owner. If eggs are post of all desired, then one of the non- sitting varieties would be most suitable; if table fowls are chiefly required then one of those breeds which are best as f&tteners ; or, if a good all-round fowl is preferred, there are many that will meet all the requirements. But the chief thing is to deter m...

PRESERVING EGGS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
PRESERVING EGGS. Possibly some of your readers may be glad to have my receipe for preserving eggs by means of lime (writes a correspondent of the New Zealand Mail), as it is an old-established one in our family and amongst our friends, and always successful, and I can positively affirm that we eat eggs in January, and sometimes February, that have been thus preserved in the summer.

Poultry. DEBILITY IN POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 27 April 1889
fmUtrg, DEBILITY IN POULTRY. Debility is in poultry, as in human beings, one of the most difficult things ta contend with. Often there is no apparent reason for the weakness, and certainly so organic dis ease, GnthiBjromt HiH says:— 'Invariably surrounding *ircnmetancBE, or some heredi tary peculiarity, are at the soot of the matter. There are fowls and fowls, just as there are men and men, animals and animals. Some fowls are differently constituted to others, being imtnraUv delicate, without any absolute disease and readily influenced by dietry or atmos pheric changes, or of a highly nervous tem perament yielding suddenly to fright. Young, faEt-gxowing, and well-bred birds are more Eneceptible to changes of circumstances than ordinary fowls. Thus the first time of ex hibition is often the cause of drooping and backward growth owing to the fright the bird is subjected to from the time it leaves its accustomed run and management until it re turns home ; or, may be, it changes hands, ...
