SOUTH AUSTRALIA AND EMIGRANTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

SOI3TH AUSTRALIA. AND EMI GRANTS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— I have seen a letter from- Mr. Greenway, of Gawler, in your paper, and although I am a a freetrader as much ss be is I think he hag exaggerated. I never knew good rice less than £d. per lb. in the old cotutry, and I can get as good bere for 3d. per lb. by taking three or four pounds. If it is 8d. per lb. up country I should think that is due to impositions other than the Customs. As to saving money, I think the working man nas a better chance hen tjiaa at home, and if your correspondent has not met with a single laborer who puts money in the bank he has not met with everything that is here. Perhaps there are eome more things wbioh he has not met with. I hive not been here so loug,as Mr. Greenway.but I cau tell him I know a young man who came out here when I did, two years and six months ago. and wbo saved £50 the. first year he was bere. I know others who have not done so well, bat from all I can aef* the working men ia this colo...

THE GEORGETOWN DEPUTY RETURNING-OFFICER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

THE GEORGETOWN DEPUrr KETUBNING-OFFICER. TO THE EDITOR. Sir— On going the polling-place at George town to-day to record my vote I was rather sur prised to find that the deputy retuming-ofGner there was the same person who was a week or two ago appointed as general secretary to the central committee of the South Australian Farmers' Association. Now Sir. as the above association — no matter what its aims were at starting— has, up here Bt least, shown itself to be little eUe thi u a political club I certainly think it improper and indecent, if sot illegal, that the presiding officer at a polling-booth should belong to and be under the control of an organization which is using every means in Us power to influence the electors. The association makes a point oE electing certain Council and Assembly candidates— therefore, there should at least be the appearance of independence in tbs retnrning-omcership. In Victoria, last year, a number of returning-officers had to resign or be removed on ...

THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY AND THE EXPORTATION OF FROZEN MEAT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

THE TRANSCONlTNExNTAL RAIL WAV ABD THE BXP0KTAX10X OF FliOZEN ME IT. TO THE EB11OH. Sir—Several articles have appeared from time to time in the papers on the tranecDntiaental railway, but up to this time no oneeesmstohave entertained the idea that the exportation of froxen meat to England would plav an impor tant part in connection therewith, and be one of the principal nonroes of revenue derivable from that line. Ttt I think I shall be able to clearly and distinctly Bhow that an immense trade oan be established in Australia. Although the rail way is not immediately necessary for the forma tion of that trade yet the sooner it is started tbe better, fcr tbe reason that by the time it is oom pleted a very liirge traffic will be awaiting it. Considering that barely one-third of the whole continent of Australia is only suited to agricul ture, and the bulk of the remaining two- thirds is suited only to pastoral pursuits, it will be seen Bt a glance that in the course of years when this v...

The veracity and character of witnesses ara circumstances upsn which the weight of _ their testimony depends.

But how was this to be proved if ihe Traversers heard their names for the first time when they were produced in the witness hex. In England the practice in all indictments for conspiracy is to furnish the list as a matter of course. In the then recent Chartist trials it had been furnished.; the Travers'e counsel demanded whether the same thing could be refused in...

THE BOEMA CONCERTS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 23 April 1881

THE BOKMA CONCERTS. On Easter Monday evening the Boema Ope ratio Company commenced their season of six concerts at Career's Theatre. Although the popular parts of tbe bonee were well filled there was bnt a scanty attendance in the dress circle ; considering, however, tbe oounter-attractioas at the Koyal and the Exhibition Building the opening mgne may oe xairiy pronounced a suc cessful one. Tbe programme principally oon sieted of operatic selections, tbe pieces chosen being such as were calculated to thoroughly test tbe abilities of tbe artistes and to supply a sufficient idea of. tbe merits possessed by each member of the company. Un fortunately the piano, one of Erard's, belonging to tha theatre, is anything but a good instru ment, and quite spoilt the effect of more tban one of tbe pieces.
