LAURA. [From our own Correspondent.] April 9, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
LATJE.A. [From our own Correspondent/] Auril 9. 1878. We liaTe bean favoured with a visit from the celebrated original Georgia Minstrels, who performed on Friday and Saturday nights last at the Laura Institute to very good houses on both occasions. It is quite a treat to have such a company up—well, X may say —North. [Our correspondent also* enters somewhat into details, "but as we fully criti cised the performances of the company when in Kapunda, it is needless to insert it.—Ed.J Last night there was a monster meeting held in the Institute Hall, to take into con sideration the advisability of forming a Cor poration for the town of Laura. The town at present is under the control of a District Council, which swallows up the whole of the rates, and does little or nothing for Laura Ward; hence the meeting to have a Corpora tion. Mr. Spicer, J.P., was voted to tha chair, who read the notice convening the meeting, and asked for a fair hearing for those- who might address the meeting. Mr....
THE CHARGE AGAINST MR. CARROLL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
THE CIIAUGKE AG-AEfST Me. CAEEOLL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—On my return to town a day or two back my attention was called to tlie Register report of a meeting of electors for the Light, held at Crase's Hotel on Saturday, the 30tli ult, for the purpose of hearing the political opinions of Mr. Frank Skiffington Carroll, an intending candidate. I was Mr. Carroll's landlord, and doubtless the solicitor referred to by him ; and as I find thnt some persons are inclined to think that I made use of an incognito to attack Mr. Carroll in such an un warrantable manner, I jiave to &lt;state that I did not write, or cause to be written, nor was I in any way privy to the writing of the letter raad; neither did I even know of its existence, nor have I the remotest idea of the writer, although the candidate stated that the writer was his intimate acquaintance. I am, !Sir, &e., CHARLES M. DAVIS, Solicitor. Adelaide, April 12, 1878.
THE RACE FOR THE LIGHT PLATE. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
THE RACE FOR THE LIGHT PLATE. This struggle Trill be settled to-day, and speculation is rife as to tlie result. As I mentioned in my last, tlie three I fancy most are Whitefoot, Financier, and Hercules, out of Long Legs, and I see no reason to alter my opinion. Q.uiet breathers have been in dulged in by the nags engaged, and improve ment effected, but I must confess I was some what disappointed when I heard the other day that Haymaker (late Cambusdoon) had ran off the course and shown symptoms of funkiness. Pluck, you know, sir, is a very necessary desideratum in a contest for prizes like those now offered. This horse had been well groomed, and handled in such a manner as must have a tendency to make his chance more rosy, and it's a pity that he should have bolted. Whitefoot is in the pink of condition, looks well, and there can be no doubt he will come in an easy winner of the first prize. He is backed up in first-class style, and having the benefit of experienced trainers he will ...
MELBOURNE. [From our own Correspondent.] April 10, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
MELBOTJEKE. [From our own Correspondent.] April 10, 1878. My correspondence lias fallen sadly into arrear lately, but you must excuse rue, as through press of other business I hare had really no time to send my usual weekly. And all I can promise you now is a very short j epitome of the political affairs of the colony, leaving other matters till my next, which I promise shall leave here in time for your next issue. The first thing that I recollect of im portance is the resignation of the Attorney G-eneral (who, you may recollect, was also a Land Tax Commissioner without salary.) Mr. Trench retains his position as Land Tax Commissioner, and will now take the salary attached to that office of £1,500 per aunum. The vacancy thus caused in the Cabinet was filled by the appointment of Sir B. O'Loghlen (the :latelv elected member for West Mel bourne) to that office, which, under our Con stitution involves an appeal to the con stituency again, and so West Melbournites are to have another el...
NOCK'S ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
NOCK'S ACT. TO THE EDITOB. Sir —Having observed a letter in your paper " W. O. A." on the above subject, and not approving altogether of the way in which the matter is handled, I respectfully request you to insert a few remarks of my own. With regard to the observations respecting the rather hackneyed expression that ct You can't make men sober by Act of Parliament," I have no wish to offer any comments, but when he comes to speak of the liberty of the subject, he appears to be altogether at sea. What I apprehend to be the meaning of the liberty of the subject is this—That every man, being of full age, and in the full possession of his faculties, shall think, speak, andaetinany way he pleases, providing he does no harm to others ; or, to put the thing more correctly, that hedoes not infringe upon the corresponding rights of others to do in like manner. Now, Sir, taking tliis as our standpoint, X am utterly unable to understand in what way our ordinary sanitary regulations are a vio ...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE KAPUNDA HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
CORRESPONDENCE. [It mnst be understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of Correspondents under this heading.] ♦ THE KAPUNDA HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—On reading the subscription list for the Kapunda Hospital X was rather surprised to see that the institution •was mainly depen dent upon subscriptions, and that donations were so earnestly solicited. Yet it "was only the other evening I was told of a rather sad case that happened to a new arrival some few weeks back. It appears he was taken very ill, and his employers, thinking of no better plan, sent him to the Hospital, where he was an invalid for six weeks. Upon his recovery he was presented with a bill for the small amount ol £19 some odd shillings, for Doctors' advice, &c. Rather hard on a new chum, I guess. I was further informed that his illness has rendered him unable to pay it; but his employer, whom they look upon as a responsible person, having sent him there, has placed within his reach the means ...
VICTORIA. Melbourne, April 11. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
VICTORIA. Melbourne, April 11. The West Melbourne election is proceeding quietly. Warainga are circulated against any infringement of ma. Electoral Act, the pen alties also being published. Arrived—Steamship Durham, 52 days out from London. Yesterday's Police Gazette notifies that henceforth previous convictions shall not be made known to magistrates when judging offenders. Bing, the eaptain, and Butters, the chief officer, of the Alexandra, appeared at the Police Court to-day on a charge of scuttling the ship. The Crown Solicitor applied for a week's remand to enable the detectives to pro cure evidence. Bail was allowed—the prison ers in two sureties of £150 each and their own recognizances of £300 each. Melbourne, April 12. The Ticfcorian. artillery force of 120 men proceeded yesterday to Queenscliffe, where they will probably remain under canvas for a month. Some splendid Clydesdale entires and thoroughbred greyhouuds have arrived by the steamer Durham from London. Mr. Lee has be...

REUTER'S TELEGRAMS. LONDON, April 10. Received April 11, 11 p.m. Prince Gorstscliakoff's reply to Lord Salis bury's despatch, is considered unaggressive. The English objection with respect to the refusal to submit the Russo-Turkisk Treaty in its entirety to the Congress remains, how ever, unanswered. Nevertheless hopes of a pacific solution of the existing difficulties are still entertained. LONDON, April 12. The recent speech of Earl Beaconsfield is regarded -with, disfavor at St. Petersburgii. With respect to the Congress, Prince Q-ort scliakoff says in his note that he can only re peat his previous statement, namely, that Russia vrill not engage to state openly at the Conference tlie secret conditions of the.Kusso Turkish Treaty, adding that he leaves the Powers at liberty to form their own apprecia tion of the situation, and shape their action accordingly, The Russian troops are drawing closer to Bucharest.

OUR, CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 13, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 16 April 1878
OUR, CITY LETTER. [From our own Correspondent.^ Adelaide, Anril 13, 1878. I am rather surprised to find that some persons took in sober seriousness the amusing account -which I gave in my last for the en tertainment of your readers, of the reports that 'were circulated about the city respecting the efforts made to induce Mr. 3J. Smith, J.P., to come out as a candidate for Noarlunga. I don't mean to say that they were entirely devoid of truth, but as to many of the details they were either highly colored or entirely in correct. Two weekly papers published in Adelaide liad each a rather different version of the affair to that which I supplied, but in one particular at least we were all wrong, for it was not the present Treasurer and Chief Secretary who got hold of Rob and treated him to the " tap o' his bent," but two (or three) ear-Ministers ; the present members of the Government did not take the part erro neously assigned to them. Whatever the friends and supporters of the G-overnm...

The Kapunda Herald. FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 1878. THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 19 April 1878
Cf)e HapunUa f^eralU. FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 1878. THE ELECTIONS. The elections are over. We are disappointed and to some extent surprised at the result. The electors displayed very little interest in the matter, only about one-third of those on the roll recording their votes. This, however, may be partially ac counted for by the unfortunate period chosen for the elections, just when the farmers are busiest with their tilling operations. Even this, however, does not excuse the electors, as whilst there are now 151 more names on the roll than in 1875, only two-thirds as many electors recorded t&eir votes at this' election as at the last general election. We eauuot expect to be as well repre sented as we should, or even as we might be, if-electors are thus careless as to the exercise of the privilege en trusted to their. As we anticipated, Mr. J. White headel tlxe poll by a fair majority, having nearly double as many votes as the third highest on the list. We shouldcongratulate him...
