District News. Orroroo. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

District News. . ©rroroo. Now that business is in its slack season there is a good opportunity to establish amongst as a branch of the St. John's Ambulance Association for rendering first aid to the wounded, which in many countries has saved so many lives and much suffering, and as we have a doctor liying in our midst there is very little doubt that he would consent to give lectures -to those who might feel disposed to join a class. The young men in the stores, and farmers especially, would find the in formation they would gain of invalu able- service to them at some future period, when, instead of wondering what to do when an accident occurred, they would remember what they had learned at the ambulance class and save very likely the life of the sufferer. Another society which ought to be es tablished here, or rather revived, is a Mutual Improvement with Model Parliament on the same basis as that which existed here. about seven years ago when the Orroroo people seemed to have more e...

What strange emotions filled the breasts of the voyagers. The day had been unusually pleasant and the vessel under most favorable circumstances had ploughed along a most even course, and, like the beginning of many a life, every thing was fair and promising. Scarcely a soul of the large number of emigrants had felt the first sensation of sickness. The dense fog so common in the English Channel did not mar the scene that night, and the moon with her full pale face looked down upon many sad hearts. The homes and kindred left behind were the all absorbing topics of con versation by the many small groups. which were seated on the deck. Little Mabel, who had fallen asleep, had been taken to her snug crib and the parents were seated toget...

Petersburg Model P[?]rliament. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

Petersburg Itfiodel P rSia ment. A meeting was held in the Petersburg Institute on Wednesday, August 17th, to consider the advisability of forming a Model Parliament. There was a good attendance and Mr. Copinger was unanimously voted to the chair. The Chairman said that as the meet ing had been called by Mr. Touchell, he would ask that gentleman to explain its object to those present. He was gratified at seeing such a large number of prominent townsmen taking an interest in the matter. Mr. Touchell said it was at the in stigation of two or three of those present that he had called the meeting. At first the idea was to form a Mutual Improvement Society, but after some discussion it was thought better to start a Model Parliament. Of course it would entirely depend on those present what description the Society should take. He had written to the Terowie Model Parliament on the subject and they had kindly forwarded him a copy of their rules, which he had with him. The Chairman said that ...

DARLING AND SONS' wheat stack, which contained 28,000 bags, cleared on Monday last.

A New Dodge. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

A Hew Dodge. The Sydney Evening News reports that last week one of the most original and peculiar cases of obtaining money by false pretences occurred in Newtown. The circumstances are thus described: An exceedingly well-dressed lady, who appeared to be suffering the most in tense grief, entered an undertaker's shop, . and gave an order for a cedar coffiin, state hearse, and five coaches. The undertaker, of course, - was deeply moved, and expressed sympathy for his lady customer, who informed him that if he went to a certain address in Marrickville, which she gave him, he would find the necessary medical certi ficate in the front room behind a vase on the mantelpiece. Before leaving, how ever, the lady became suddenly aware that she had " come out" without her purse, and she told the undertaker she had to proceed to Manly, asking him to lend her £1 until she returned. This the undertaker willingly did, and then the aggrieved one asked for 3d. for her bus fare, as she did not care to...

Correspondence. RAILWAY REFRESHMENT ROOMS BILL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

Correspondence. RAILWAY REFRESHMENT ROOMS BILL. TO THE EDITOR. Src,-This Bill is evidently creating great interest in Parliament and among the general public. Twice it has been under discussion and twice ordered to be read in a fortnight's time. The next reading will probably decide the fate of the Bill and I hope those who are so strenuously opposing it will be success ful in having it thrown out or post poned for an indefinite period. It certainly has not been asked for by the country, and as far as I am aware Petersburg does not require that its representatives should prolong the dis cussion of the Bill while other more important manners are held in abey ance. It was amusing to read the in flated eloquence of Mr. Bees, and the exciting heroics of our senior member upon the urgent necessity of the Government providing these little dram shops for the convenience of travellers. I maintain that the majority of the travelling public are opposed to our railway stations being used for t...

MEETING AT PORT PIRIE. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

MEETING AT PORT PIRIE. On a hurriedly got up requisition the mayor called a public meeting at the Institute for August the 16th to discuss the principle of assessing on unimproved values for municipal purposes. Through indisposition his worship was unable to attend, and Mr. Dungey was voted to the chair, but having explained the objects of the meeting he vacated the chair in favour of Mr. Geddes, to enable him to move- " That this meet ing supports the suggestions of the Municipal Association to amend the Corporation Act, and urges the Government to embody the principle of assessment of unimproved values in the consolidated Bill." Mr. Lewis seconded the motion, which was carried. Mr. Prest then spoke at length in favour of the principle, and moved-" That this meeting fully endorses the action of Mr. Holder in moving his amendment in the Local Government Bill, and is of opinion "that to levy all rates aud taxes on the unimproved value of land is a just and an economically sound princ...

Centralisation. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

Centralisation. In Monday's " Register " a corres pondent under the nom de plume of " Broad View," writes as follows " The very latest towards the above is the laudable effort of our Terowie friends. Well done, Terowie ! Nothing like agitation and asking when one's house is considered in danger. A states man like policy to the winds. Do every thing possible to save eleven miles in a line of three hundred. Run a parallel line even if necessary. The government is sure to do anything it is asked. Make a bold bid against Petersburg. Port Pirie, with its advantage of eighty miles, as against the premier port, for the Barrier trade, is not worthy of con sideration. So says a former Port Piriean, who. is no longer pleased with Port Pirie, and would do Anything to cut her throat.. Continue the centrali zation policy. Of course there should be no port in the colony but one. The Terowie patriots would evidently advo cate a line of convenience past every man's door. To avoid that meeting Peter...

Press Opinions. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

Press Opinions. "PETERSBURG TIMES." - We have I received the first copy of a new weekly, j the Petersburg Times, Orroroo Chroni cle, and Northern Advertiser. "Why | should not Petersburg, which is the key and centre of a large district, have its newspaper? Why not, when there is a "gratifying list of local names amongst the advertisers," when the town is so flourishing that "there is not a dwelling of any sort to let in the place;" and when the editor can provide sixteen columns of reading matter, a good pro portion of which is purely local ? Amongst the special objects which the Times will advocate are the extension of the broad gauge from Terowie to Petersburg,liberal land laws,economical government, and increased municipal subsidies. The Times is published by Mr. R. M. Osborne, and promises to be a creditable addition to the provincial I Press. -S. A. Register.

City Gossip. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

City Gossip. BY A TA.I KER They say that the Ministry has spent many, many hours in revising the new tariff, and if the Premier can show a good statement from a protectionist's view, that his company will be likely to have a long reign on the benches. * * * They say the " Petersburg Times " will take a prominent place in the galaxy of provincial journals, and your talkative friend can reiterate the state ment, and add that it will be the fault of the people of Petersburg and other northern towns if the statement be not verified. They say that Petersburg is bound to have a Court established before long, and that a hundred persons are waiting for the post of clerk. * * # They say that the Adelaide Hospital would be greatly improved if its fathers followed the lead of the Children's Hospital, and establish a training class for nurses. A diffusion of the kindlj, motherly manner would add greatly to its usefulness, and create a confidence that is nbt too widely established. * * * They sa...

Gladstone. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

Gladstone. Battalion drills where held here on August 15th in the morning and after noon. About sixty-five men, exclusive of officers, from the'Gladstone, Laura, Caltowie, and Terowie companies took part in the manoeuvres, Gapt. Bleech more of Terowie being in command. The Gladstone Company was most strongly represented, and Drill In structor Ryan from the Staff Office was also present. In the evening a concert took place in the Institute before a good audience. The chair was taken by Captain Bleechmore. A novel and interesting feature of the programme was the bayonet exercise which was successfully gone through by six mem bers of the Gladstone Company. The concert was followed by a well-attended public ball. . The . proceeds of both concert and ball are to be devoted to purchasing uniforms for the Military Band which has recently been formed in .connection with the local company.

Auburn. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 19 August 1887

Auburn. From early morn on Friday last this township showed unmistakably that an important townsman had gone from us, bunting being displayed half mast high and the shops partly closed. Soon after midday the main street was astir with incomers from all quarters to pay their last respects to the late Mr. Joseph Edwin Bleechmore, J.P,, one of the founders of the township from the year 1851, and one who had won universal confidence and endeared himself to all classes of the community. He was ever ready to help in any public effort to advance the public weal and never slow to assist any one in word or deed. The deceased was seized for the third and last time during his midnight slumbers on the night of August 8th, and, to give the family now scattered far and wide ample opportunity to attend, the funeral obsequies took place at 2 p.m. on the 10th, the chief mourners being Chas. A. Bleeehmore, William T. Bleechmore, and Albert S. Bleechmore, brothers of the diseased. The sons present wer...
