Yunta. Oct. 18. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 October 1887
Hantfa. Oct. 18. After a hot day yesterday a cool change set in at night succeeded to-day by a iei rfiic dust-storm, which has continued for several hours. Oat-door work has had to bo sus pended in consequence of its severity. The Paracbilna Plain was formerly supposed to be the premier dust-producing piece of couutry in the colony, bat Yunta is now believed to occupy that unenviable position. Very little rain has fallen for months, and the surround ing country is in consequence excessively dry.
Correspondence. CO-OPERATION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 October 1887
Correspondence. CO-OPERATION. TO THE JSDlIOB. Sir,-I note the letter signed "Common Sense," and after perusing the epistle wondered what description of drivel would have been presented to the public had not common sense inspired it. " Self Interest" should certainly have bean the "nam da plume,'' and then I should have been spared the small trouble of replying to the cowardly insinuations, the low indecency, and the superficial rubbish set forth in the effusion Why did not " Common Sense" stand forth like a man and say "oar craft Is in danger! Great is Diana of the Ephesiaus," and step boldly forward and place a coronal upon her brow. I am sore that those who are desirous of retarding the growth of this grand principle of industrial salvation will not thank this silly being who humorously subscribes him self " Common Sense," for persons of the most ordinary intelligence will certainly conclude that if this is the best opposition which self-interest can offer, the principle of distri...

Torowie, There has been a gold discovery at Wonna, about 14 miles from here. There are about 50 claims pegged out, Messrs F. Mattey and S. W. Pearse, of Wonna, are the discoverers. The former noticed some ironstone which seemed to show gold, on some leased land about four months ago, but took no further notice of it till Mr Pearse and himself passed by about a month ago. Mr F. Mattey is now in Adelaide, intending to have the stone tried, and also to ask the Commissioner of Crown Lands to aid them in giving the locality a good trial. The annual meeting of the Terowie Cricket Club was held on Friday, the 14th inst., at the Imperial Hotel. There was a very small attendance, as the notice given was very short. Mr Pendlebury occupied the chair. Mr McAlloney, the hon. sec., read the balance sheet and financial report, which was adopted. It was resolved to hold another meeting on Monday, 17th inst. We have had some Very dry and rough weather this last week, but we hope it will not continue...

Pleaded not guilty. Mr Copinger conducted the case for the defendant, and in the absence of Mr Bonnar Mr Bannigan undertook the prosecution. The counsel for the defence drew the attention of the justices to. the fact that the summons was not legal, as it had not been issued accor ding to law, inasmuch as it bore no seal; but as he wished the case to be judged only by its merits he would waive his objection and allow it to be brought before the court. The witnesses were ordered out of court. Johann Kloss was sworn and said: Remember 24th September last. Was at my house and saw William Davis with another man drive past...

The Petersburg Times ORROROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1887. THE TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 21 October 1887
CFRE IPJCTERSBM-G STMTS, SRRQROO CHRONICLE MID KORTNERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 18S7. THE TARIFF. Daring the last few days the public of Petersburg and district have had an opportunity of expressing their views on the tariff as passed by the House of Assembly, and the result shows that the opposition to the measure which is eo generally expressed throughout the country is shared by .this community, the motion approving of the Govern ment policy being defeated by a sub stantial majority. Indeed several of the speakers who came forward as the champions of Protection did so in a veiy half-hearted manner, and certainly not in a way that was likely to carry conviction to their hearers. It will be gratifying to the members for this district-and especially to Mr. Ward to know that their efforts on behalf of Free Trade are appreciated by the majority of their constituents. The" question of Protection has never been put to the country, and the late General Elections were certainly no...

It was proposed and seconded that the j meeting adjourn, and that another meeting be called to consider the sub ject, and an effort made to properly advertise the same so as to bring to-; gether a more representative gathering. The motion, however, was lost, and an amendment carried by a large majority, to the effect that the business be pro ceeded with. Mr Wright moved " That this meet ing consider the tariff as passed by the lower house as about the best that could have been devised for the interests of the country," He said he proposed this for three reasons. 1. That produc tion would eventually lower the price of goods, 2. All cannot be growers of wheat, and the rising generation ...

He Wanted maintenance. I £BR BRASH.] There is a ludicrous side even to such a common place situation as the agency of a Trades Union. My experience happened thusly. I . had just got through the pre liminary, of initiation into the mysteries of the office i>y a gentleman who had thrown up the (official sponge. Every thing had been settled up for our mutual interests, even to tfee smoking of a fragrant weed from the private box of my predecessor. We should have parted sworn friends indeed, had not toy host, with an inexcusable want of hospitality, declined to understand a perfectly intelligible hint that another ' of his special regalias would be accept able. But we will let that pass-some people are very obtuse. Three shillings had just been disbursed : in providing books for the new office,! and I was just closing, after having 1 racked my brain with the insane projects of providing a second hand safe that the records of my guardian-ship should not be lost to future generations. ...
