CREMATION-A PROTEST. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 15 March 1901

CREMATION- A PROTEST. To tlie Editor. Sir— I am- in hopes. that. Mr. Hemng'3 protest .will cause the property owners of fthe west part of the city to look to their interests on a legitimate manner. The ac non oi tne wverrtmenit m granting land in the West Park lands to the Cremation Society to erect a crematorium within 300 yards of the inhabited part of . the ter race is really too bad. They must know it will depreciate property in the vicinity. One ?member of tiie Government is a re presentative for Wedt . Adelaide— s- much for the interest hie appears to have in his constituents. No otner part of the city is more handicapped than the south west portion, with its cemetery, soap fac tory' ,and rubbish tips. . The west park lands are not attended to in the same way as our oUter i»arks. The residents do not look to their interests. They should now protest, as the Naikwortih people did, against a crematorium being erected any where m the west park lands. As the prevailing winds are fr...

EARLY EXPERIENCES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ROADS, TENTS, AND "MURDER." [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 15 March 1901

EARLY EXPERIENCES IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. VI.— By. J. C. Hawker. ROADS, TEXTS, AND 'MURDER!' ?Winle labour was to lie obtained, at a very moderate rate of wage, it was con sidered advisable to turploy some of ths emigrants in improving those streets which required obstructions to be remo--ol owing to the increased traffic. When the street* wvre first defined' the scrub was cleared away, but large trees were simply sawn off, and the stumps left, about fovo feet above the ground. These on dark nights were a source of diin%vr to vehicles, and accidents were not infrequent. Msn were, therefore, set to work to grub out tlie stumps aud level the ground afterwards. Galvanizefl iron was not in existence at this ]-eniod, so temporary, rough wooden shanties, which could easily be removed were erected in a few localities for the accommodation o: tiie emigrants employed in this work. They were i\jv and far between. In connection with one of these shanties a friend of mine had a peculiar experience....

IMPROVEMENT OF WHEAT [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 15 March 1901

IMPROVEMENT OF WHEAT TBy Richard Marshall.! I crave space to reply to Professor Lowrie's remarks 'on th'a above subject made in 'an interview in 'The Register' of March 8. Although I differ from some ol lus conclusions, , 1 am pleased we can agree in others. If I criticise some of his statements 1 do so in no unfriendly spirit. I have sought his advice with profit, and I ?fully. appreciate all the good work he has done, and is still doing, and hold him in the greatest respect. If we grant that, as ne says, there is no need to cry deterioration in our wheats, it is equally true that we should make eA'ery effort to iniprow them, and in this Avork the Proiessor of Agricul ture should lead. A large number of new wheats have come into cultivation Ayithout any corresponding nulling value being ad ded, which should be one of our first aims. Not only so, but some of those wheat«s are decidedly inferior. This the professor does not deny, nor the statement that one wiiich has composed 'his ma...

MOUNT BARKER SHOW. A MAGNIFICENT SPECTACLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 15 March 1901

MOUNT BAREER SHOW, A ?MAfi-NIFTCENT SPECTACLE. The centre of one or the -most- favoured portions of South Australia, Mount Barker, hasfor many years past boasted of a show which in some respects *is the most im portant (in South Australia. To compare it in certain departments with the display made twice a year by the Royal Agricul tural Society of Adelaide is an easy mat ter, and its popularity is by no means, con fined to the immediate district. Four years ago the jubilee was celebrated, and then many people thonght that high-water mark had been reached in the general display. Last year's exhibition was a notable one on account of the visit of His Excellency the Governor and Lady Tennyson and the record gate which resulted, but -on Thurs day the attendance was larger than it had ever been before. A. perfect day favoured the society, and people to the number of 7,000 came from all over the bolls and from Adelaide. The railway department was faced with a big task in dealing with the ...

THE ART OF ENTERTAINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 15 March 1901

J HE ART OF iNTERTMl^ ' IBvLADY JEUNR} If*we were asked to name tne most strik ingv characteristic of the English people, ?mere is no doubt we should unhesitatingly fcuv their love of hospitality, ^o people are more open-handed, so generous and kind in their welcome of friends, of any one to whom they are anxious to snow their re gard, than, -we, and tht: expression of that leeimg linda its outlet in nospitality. An Englishmen's lirst idea, of showing kind ness and friendship is to feed his friend. We never feelthat we are on any terms of intimacy unless we have bidden our friends and acquaintances to dinner. To break bread Avith them and let them eat our salt is a real proof that we admit them lo the innermost ylaee in our regard, it is not so. with other people, except with the .Americans, who share our feelings to the full; for the hospitality of our^ cousins across the sea is a proverb. For many years we did not live up to our reputation ior hospitality as regarded Americans, fo...

AUSTRALIAN VOWELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 15 March 1901

AUSTRALUST VOWELS. In a particularly interesting report on his work in the north-eastern district ^luring last year Inspector Clark, of the Education Department, in his remark's about readme m the schools, says: — The mechanical branch of this subject must be considered satisfactory. The children know the words and tiheir pronunciation. Provincialisms are disappearing, and a fairly general atten tion is given to final consonants and as pirates. I am pleased to note too that the Australian vowels are neither so strong nor so general as they have been. Unfortu nately- too many of our lady teachers mouth their words; and their affected, drawling style, erroneously considered to be 'good form,' tends to impure pronunciation.'

ANGLO-COLONIAL NOTES. [From our Special Correspondent.] LONDON. February 8. numsn -kingdoms.' ? Under this title t'he 'Daily Xews,' which seems to have completely abjured the po licy of Imperialism to which its former editor, llr. Cook, committed it. and to liave relapsed into vliittle Jinglanttism of the severest type, has been discussing the sug gestion that Edward VII. should be pro [??iiiimed King of Canada, King of Austral iiasi, and in the fulness of tame King of l^outh Australia. Hew nauseous such an' idea is to it may be assumed from the following quotation:— The notion of 'calling1 Canada or Australasia a iinsilcm may come naturally crtuugh to a eet taiu clavs of people in this country whose re actionary tendencies are observable in the new spirit o[ militarism, for example. - But that any Canadian, or Aiistralian, sliould.give it for a mement u hospitable reception in Ills .mind, is startling.

THE FEDERAL TARIFF. To the Editor. Sir— Permit me to exercise my right of reply to }Ir. J'roud's criticisms publisb ed m your issue of yesterday. 1. Mr. Proud charges me with having .said ;nat nntam nau not improved mnce feiie had abandoned protection, but rather bad retrograded.' No sane man- would have .stated that Britain had actually retrograd ed during the last half century.' I certainly said notrwng of the sort; but Mr. Proud is not to blame. He has been misled by an error in your report. What I did say, as correctly reported in the ''Advertiser,' was as follows:— 'Fifty years ago, when she,' menning England, 'ceased to be protected le 'Jield a position ajnrjigst the nations of le earth which she had not improved since she abandoned protection in favour of free trade, but she had rattier retrograded.' 1 was speaking of her position relatively to other nations when I slid it 'had not been improved.
