The following is a copy of ihe Bill which Mr. Roberts, M.P., intends to introduce in the House of Assem bly :— An Act to provide, for the appointment vof two additional wardens of the ^Marine Board of Sonth Australia.: Be it enacted by the Governor, with the . advice and consent of the Parliament of South Australia, as follows :— 1.

Csy'stal Brook. V " (From our owu'Correspondent.) *' August 4th, On Saturday last, Mr. «Jas.; Allen of Milcowie, brother of Mr. W. Allen of this town, met with a serious accident at Warnerfcowri. He was engaged in load ing timber into a dray, when the horse suddenly started off, and Mr. Alien, in trying to turn quickly, jammed his foot between the rails in the station yard aud broke his ankle bone.

Garnishees. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 6 August 1898

A few weeks ago we drew attention to the hardship inflicted on workmen by the operation of what are known legally . as garnishees, that is, the power given to a creditor to attach the wliole of the wages of a workman until his claim is satisfied. While do:ng so we cited the provisions of a measure which the Attorney-General of Victoria desires to bring into force in that colony, nnder which the earn ings of all classes of workers "are protected up to £2 per week. Mr. Grainger's bill is based on similar lines, and we heartily wish him success with it. If carried it will save many deserving people from being rendered destitute through the action: of bowelless money-grabbers. For the man in constant employment at fair wages who gets: into debt we have no sympathy, and were he only affected by the garnishee process he: coald sweat .away so far as we are concerned. It sometimes happens, however, that a man gets into debt, during a period of eii forced idleness— J through illness or inabi...

Gladstone. (From our own Correspondent.) August 4. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 6 August 1898

(From our own Correspondent.) August 4. Touching that Circuit Court business, it might interest you to know that of 169 cases heard at Gladstone, 47 have come from Pirie. Thi3 is from March, 1888 to July, 1898. I remarked last week■,that I was willing to grant that Pirie found a majority of the cases, but in the face of these figures I retract that portion. I do so all the more pleasantly, as it proves Pirie to ho less black than she is painted, and that is a cause for sincere congiatulation. She has enough sins on her conscience without foisting the misdeeds of others on her. It has been suggested that the Local Court of Insol vency should be removed to Port Pirie. This also is a dubious compliment-, for Pirio is notorious in the way of supplying the Local Court of Insolvency with what the solicitors call "stiff uns." Liabilities, £170. or £200 or £350, assets, nil. It is enough to make angels weep to see the cruel way in which the unsophisticated store?ceeper, butcher, and baker h...

The Port Pirie Recorder. SATURDAY, AUGUST 6, 1898. Compulsory Vaco ination. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 6 August 1898

<4lte ilort Pric Jiecoi$et; Saturday, August .6,1898. Osmpulsosy T&soiaatwa, The action of the British Houso of Commons in deciding to abolish the Act rendering vaccination compul sory in the United Kingdom will meet with die approval of a large number—we believe, a large majority —of parents in Australia. It is not contended by medical men tlm t inoculation with the virus of cow pox renders the person inoculated immune from smallpox, though it makes the subject less liable to in fection. Its chief recommendation is that the vaccina*ed contract the disease in a milder form, and that consequently the mortality from smallpox has been greatly reduced by the agency of Sir James Paget's great discovery. Reliable statistics confirm the claims of the therapentists, and it would be foolish to deny that vaccination has greatly mitigated the suffering from this terrible scourge of humanity. Vaccination,; however has not been an unmixed evil. It is admitted even by its advoc...

Shake Hands. [Newspaper Article] — Port Pirie Recorder and North Western Mail — 6 August 1898

' : That was a noble handshake be tween lleid and Barton after the federal battle in New South Wales, It bespeaks bigness on both sides} Littla men cannot forgive a defeat, nor forbear to vaingloriously triumph over the vanqnished. A generons foe respects the man who has opposed him bravely. The ignoble only nurse revenge and seek to belittle their opponents after they have measured their strength. Toby and George were schoolfellows together, and though political differences planted them antagonists for a while they were not allowed , to permanently uproot the friendship of bygone years. That is the sort of feeling we should like to see everywhere, in little towns and in big—-in Port Pirie as in Sydney. Let us leave it to churls like Chaffey Baker to refuse the proffered hand of a valiant opponent. Dekpekikg River Fkontages. -In the House of Assembly on Tuesday, the Hon. A.
