OPINIONS OF THE PRESS ON MR. CARROLL'S ELECTION. [Advertiser.] [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS ON ME. CAEROLL'S ELECTION. [Advertiser Notwithstanding the degrading issue of the polling in the District of Light, we have on the whole cause to be thankful for the manner in which the electors who went to the polling booths have exercised the franchise. Leaving out of sight that shocking exception, they have in most cases chosen the best men who offered themselves. [Southern Argus.~\ F. S. Carroll, it seems to us, will have to retire, or be put out—we don't kuow which ; but certainly, no gentleman will care to be associated with him in parliamentary duties after his exhibition of utter disregard of truth and morality at the meeting referred to. It appears the Electoral Act does not prohibit persons who have been convicted of felony from being returned to Parliament—and we don't know that we object very strongly to that, for there are some instances on record of brilliant and useful careers that have followed a fatal but repented step of evil. Mr. Carroll howe...

MELBOURNE. [From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 27,1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878

MELBOUENE. {[From our own Correspondent.] Adelaide, April 27,1878. I can imagine 'jour readers asking "What the dickens has become of our Melbourne correspondent." Well, here I am, alive and busy inditing this epistle, which although it must be brief, will have to chronicle the events of a fortnight. The principal matter in the political world lias been the reinstate ment of a certain portion o£ the previously dismissed Civil servants. It is said that on this matter the Cabinet was divided into two parties, one of which opposed any reappoint ments at all, but this section was overruled by the more moderate party, of whom Mr. Berry was one. The County Court Judges are in office again, and a portion of the Police Magistrates. In the Education Office several return, as is also the case in the Lands and other departments. But notwithstanding this, plenty are left out in the cold, and the question of compensation will doubtless come before the House when it next meets, and it is to be ho...

CORRESPONDENCE. [It mnsfc be understood that we do not necessarily endorse the opinions of Correspondents under this heading.] KAPUKDA HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR. Sir—I would be extremely sorry indeed if i the public thought with your correspondent Mr. Donaldson, that my only object in writing on this subject is to find fault. I also " write fn the interests of the public, for whose bene- I fit the Hospital was built," and for that por tion of itjwho contribute to its maintenance— for those who have been repeatedly told at public meetings either by members of the Board of Management or by gentlemen au thorized by them, to canvass for subscribers, " that the three medical gentlemen had volun teered their services gratuitously for twelve months." I perfectly agree with your correspondent that the public have no right to expect those gentlemen to give their services and so much of their time free of charge. But why, I ask, have the members of the Board of Manage ment or their authorized a...

EUDUNDA. [From our own Correspondent.] May 1, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Kapunda Herald — 7 May 1878

ETJDUNDA. {"From our own Correspondent.] May 1.1878. The great topic of the day with us as with you in Kapunda is the revelations concerning cur newly-elected member, Mr. CarrolL In dignation runs high, and yet no one seems clearly to know what should be done. Though Mr. Carroll's return was, as I said some time since, to be looked upou more as the choice of evils than an expression of actual favour. I potitively believe at the present moment folks here would prefer that the matter should re main as it is rather than risk the return of Mr. Hughes, or any person connected with the squatting interest being returned. 1 have never heard nor read of a more outspoken dread of the designs of the squattocracy than is at the present moment rampant here. This is all the more unaccountable, because the local candidate himself is a gentleman who is not altogether free of the charge of identical interest. Whether Mr. Carroll will be un seated or resign, or whatever else may happen, I am certain ...

OTJB CUT LETTER. [From our own Correspondent J Adelaide. Mav fi. 187ft. I suppose the case of the junior member for Light continues to be one of prominent interest in your district, and I may therefore be allowed to make a reference to it the first topic of my letter this week. Not that I ■wish to hound the mail down or to "write on the subject ad nauseam, for I hold that it is cruel indeed to prevent any man, whp has suffered the punishment due to his crime, from ever rising again to a respectable posi tion in society. At the same time it may ibe desirable to draw certain limits beyond which he should not be allowed to pass, limits both of time and position. We should not expect to see a man who within four or fire years had been convicted of forgery or larceny elevated to the Judicial Bench, for instance. But to return to Mr. Carroll; you, of course, see the comic papers of Adelaide; but probably many of your readers do not, I will therefore give a description of their cartoons of...

CALTOWIE. [From our own Correspondent.] Mav 1.1878. For the past few days there have been strong indications of rain, but still the weather keeps dry. Our large wheat stacks that a traveller might have seen here a few months ago, are rapidly disappearing—so fast, that to keep up the trade one of our enterprising storekeepers, who has about 50,000 bags of wheat left yet, is laying a tramway from the main line right across the township to his stack to insure a speedy clearance for the coming harvest. Trade otherwise is dull.

SADDLEWOETH. [From our own Correspondent.] Mav 6, 1878. Well, tlie holidays have come and gone. Grood Friday was very wet, as also was Easter Sunday, but on the Monday it cleared up a little so as to give tlie holiday pleasure seekers a chance to go out and enjoy themselves. The principal attraction here was the Saddleworth and Manoora picnic, held a few miles out, which was thinly attended, many being afraid to venture out in consequence of the heavy rain that had fallen previously; yet everything passed off well. The next attraction was the prize firing of the Saddleworth Rifle Club, which took place in the grounds of Mr. C. R. G-oode, J.P. The spectators were very few. Twenty-one members competed for the thir teen prizes, the first prize being a ten guinea silver cup. The terms were that the highest scorer was to have his name engraved on it, and the party having his name on it three times became the winner. The second prize was 20s. for the next highest scorer, and the other pri...

Mauy of the country people were unable to be present owing to their being busy sowing. If tbe affair is to be held every year it would be a good thing to change the time so as to give the farmers a chance of enjoying the affair. The sports were well-contested, especially the walking-match, in which J. Mullen of your town walked splendidly, his style being very much admired, although he only finished third. The concert in the even ing was crowded. The programme was lengthy and scarcely up to the usual standard of Crawler concerts. Mrs. Richards, late of your town, made her first appearance before a Grawler audience, and was well re ceived. Tfis Worship the Mayor of Gawler presented the prizes to the successful competitors during the interval. Altogether the whole affair was a great success ; but, ow...
