OUR DEFENCES. TO THE EDITOR: [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
OUR DEFENCES. TO THE EDITOB: ' tt is easy to formulate schemes of defence, and equally easy to suggest a large outlay ; but, after all, the defence ot the country is in the hands of the people themselves.' Sir— The above extract from tbe letter of Dr. Campbell, in your columns, contains the marrow of any plan for raising an efficient defence force such as will meet the approval of the great majority of the community. The press have, with no uncertain sound, kept our dangerous condition clearly io view, and it is rather surprising to hud that long before this the necessary reforms have not' been effected.

CHILD ABANDONMENT IN SIDNEY. Sydney, March 8. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 16 March 1889
CHILD ABANDONMENT IN SIDNEY. Sydney, Match 8. Kate DeLawarie pleaded guilty to-day to abandoning eight infants, and waa sen tenced to five yean' penal servitude on -each charge, the sentences to be con current. Hia Honor said that the case was of a most shocking character, and one of the worst features about it waa that people had been found — and, sad to say, mostly women — who would part with their own flesh and blood on the pretext that the prisoner would care for and bring the infanta up. Those persons mast have known just as well as the accused did that the children would be abandoned. The parents were more guilty than the prisoner was, and he trusted that ever; effort would be made by the Crown to bring them to justice as an example to others, and with the object of stamping out each a crime. He would inflict oa De Lawarle the extreme punishment the law allowed.
