CONDOWIE, APRIL 19. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881
CONDOWIE, Apbil 19. The topics of conversation just now are the forthcoming elections. Messrs. Catfc and Haselgrove are well spoken of here, and as far as I can judge will have a good amount of support. — It is almost time that something in the shape of a gesd road was made from Morton's Corner to Snowtown as the road across the laeoons is verv bad. This would be a favorable time to do such a work, as the lagoons are dry, and work could be proceeded with without delay. Tbe pie=e of road referred to would not cost a great deal and would be a great boon to the fat ners in carting the!? wheat to the township. — The weather cu tinues very warm and dry. People are cj-ting wrter, and a good downpour would be we'. come. Sowing is going on, buc there is not much done as yet owing to the dryoess ot the toil.

Tbe bank returns show an average increase during the last twelve months of £21,761 in the note ieeue and the coin and bullion of £290.070, or a total increase of £314,831. The popula tion bas, of course, increased during the same period, but looking back we find the note issue shrank the previous year by about £13,206, when the volume of business was larger than it now is. With this increase of funds, of not less than £314,831, the banks have decreased tbeic advances to the public during the year by about £025.008. Tbe advances are now, say £5,522.650, not a large sum when we consider that three years ago with a much smaller population the amount of accommodation extended to borrowers amounted to £5,683,233. Tbe banks cannot complain of having to pay dearly for money. The interest allowed on deposits in tbe country is only 2 and 3 pec cent, though why depositors at say Gume racha should...
