AN OUTWITTED DETECTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 15 February 1882

AN OUTWITTED DETECTIVE. i . I Not very long before the death of Beranger, the popnlat- song writer, M. Claude, the celebrated detective, was requested by the Commissaire Central to look after an escaped convict, an accom plished swindler (one of wbnse specialities iras the procuring of good situations for fieedv clerks, which of cdutse they never "ot, after paying, in,their caution money), whom* k® had arrested eix months ,,„i„ Mid'who preferred breaking ^ bis iime ib™ quietly and ^ecently. - He,^ tll«n le«d* ing a joyous life in tlie Qua.rt.er» in company with young ladies 01 - notoriety.

The demand on the Wallaroo Wells, too, is something tremendous" Not a moment night or day but eorae one ia raising ^ftter from them for stock, and even juojE^sstic purposes. Eight wells have been ppejxei, yet the supply is nothiug like *Yjuij tp the Remand. On Monday the $Iayor telegraphed to the Commissioner ot Public Works to know whether the j i.ivernmenf would undertake any part el the cost of owning additional-wells.

THE DEPUTATION RE WATER SUPPLY. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE WALLAROO TIMES) [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 18 February 1882

THE DEPUTATION EE WATER snppr.Y. i (to the editor of the wallaroo times) Sie—Enquiries are being made to-day as to wbat the deputation which waited upon the Commissioner of Public WorKs on Wednesday, said or did regarding danis for the districts of Tickera, Peela Weela, and Thomas' Plains, as nothing appears in the dailies' report. So to avoid any dissatisfaction and give an early reply, allow toe to say that new dams were urged as necessary ; that the Peela Weela dam should be pushed forward at once and that the £150 promised should be spent on it, that the Tickers dam should be made double its size and both covered. Further, that a new dam should at once be put down on the farthest north Government reserve in Tickera, so that new settlers would be certain of being able to get on to their scrub sections this year. If any more water storage was required, to be asked for, and sites to be pointed out by the residents. I could say nothing for Thomas' Plains more than the last paragraph...

STORAGE OF WATER. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE WALLAROO TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 18 February 1882

storage of water. I (to THE J5DITOS OF THE WA£IrABOO TIMES.) Sib,—I was pleased to read your sensible remarks on storing water in last Saturday's paper, where you urge the advisability of constructing tanks io preference to open dams. I have had to tbink a good deal abont tbe matter the last month or two, and have come to the same decision as yourself. The conclu sion I have arrived at is, that to every open dam, there should be made a supplementary tank, quite near to tbe dam, so that when the dam is full the tank can be filled from the water of the dam. This could be easily done. If the dam is oil the slope of a hill, and the tank is made on tbe lower side, the water could be carried to the tank by a syphon without any labor at all. If the tank and dam are on a level, three deal boards would make a spout wbicb would carry the water from tbe dam to the tank readily, provided there was a man with a bucket at tbe end of the spout, who did not suffer too much from back ache: Mr Todd t...

DEADSTOCK. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE WAILABOO TIMES.") Sik.—While on my way to chapel on the 12 insfc, my attention was drawn by a very offensire smell caused by a dead horse lying not many chaios from the main road ; and on inquiry I found the owner to be Mr John S>eid. -Whether Mr fieid is fond of the smell or not, I am not prepared to say, but judgiDg from the quantity of stock, he has generally lying about the Plains in the same condition I should thiok he was. Jfow, Mr Editor, I should like to know whether there is any Act to compel the owner of such nuisance either to burn or otherwise remove it, as it is a disgrace to the owner and a great annoyance to the public geueralh'. -I am, Sir, &c.

WANTS OF WALLAROO. (TO THE EDITOR OF THE WALLAROO TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 18 February 1882

WABTS OF WALLAROO. (TO THE -EDITOE OF THE WALLAROO TIMES.) Sot,—1 see by your issue of Wednesday tbat a meeting is convened lor Monday to consider the question of water supply for Wallaroo and the surroundiag dis trict. Would it not be advisable to allow the public an opportunity at that meeting to speak out on the question of getting a Railway Station in YVallaroo, or are we to allow this town to be quietly ignored by the Government and laughed at by every traveller tbat comes into the place ? Par liament will assemble in a short time, and we should give our members an opportu nity of doing something for us. I think if the public do not bestir themselves in this matter it is very probable the next Session will be frittered away and the very extraordinary sum of £150 will be left standing to our credit, and the date of commencing the erection of that noble structure postponed to an indefinite period; as I am of opinion thai we could scarcely find a person high enough in the Governme...

WATER FAMINE ON THE PENINSULA. (From the Register). [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 18 February 1882

WATER FAMINE ON THE PENINSULA. (From the Hegister). A deputation representing a large body of settlers in Kadina and the Hundreds of Tickers, Feela Weela, and Thomas Plains, waited on the Commissioner of Public Works on Wednesday afternoon with regard to the great scarcity of water on Yorke's Penin sula. The Hov. 31. D. Ross said that the far mers and other residents in the districts which the deputation representd were driven to great straits through the inadequate supply of water. The eettlers depended entirely upon the few dams in the locality and whatever water they could catch in the tanks, but these sources had unfortunately failed. Nothing material had been done with regard to remedying the matter since 1876-7. The then Government, of which he was a member, gave the means for a better supptyj and at the time the supply was certainly ample. With, however, the increase of population, it was found that those means were now totally in adequate to the requirements. Mb Chbisthas (t...

CONCESSIONS TO FARMERS—MEETING AT DOWLINGVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 18 February 1882

CONCESSIONS TO FARMERS—MEET ING- AT DOWLINGVILLE. A large meeting of farmers was held at the Dowlingville Post Office, Hundred of Cunningham, on Wednesday afternoon, February 15, to consider the desirability of petitioning tbe Uoyernment tor an alteration ot the present laud laws in ooneequence of the partial failure of the wheat crops daring the past five years. Delegates from the Mait land meeting also attended. Mr A Waterman J.P., Chairman of the Ardrossan Branch of, the Farmers Association, was voted to the chair. The Ckaibman he said th e reason they had for convening the meeting at Dowlingville rather than Ardrossan, was that the former was the most central for the farmers. He might state that the idea first originated with the Ardrossan Parmer's Association, and he might also say that a reform of the land laws had been one of the things which the I Ardrossan branch had mogt strongly advocated from its commencement. They had discussed the question and arrived at the conclusion...

ADELAIDE TELEGRAMS. Friday 5, 40. p.m. [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 18 February 1882

ADELAIDE TELEGRAMS. Friday 5, 40. p.m. Messrs Stirling and Co, agents for the Orient Line, have addressed a remon - strance to the Hon. the Treasurer, against the request made to him to prohibit the clearance of vessels on Sundays. They point out that extra expense will be incurred ; and that there s sufficient guarantee that Sunday is not wantonly encroached upon, that the prohibition would entail loss of time and money and would in no way conduce to raise the standard of public morality. The annual report of the Independent Order of Oddfellows, M.U., shows that there are ninety-four lodges in the colony. The membership is 11,241. and the total funds £140,636. The report ot the Inspector of credit selections states that in the hundreds of Pinda, Willochra, Boolcunda, Palmer, Coonatto and Kanyaka, the average yield of the wheat crop will not exceed one and a halt bushels per acre. This is owing to the small rainfall and the terrible visita tion of locusts. 8* 15, p.m. A deputation f...
