THE CASE OF SELINA COCKING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE CASE OF SELENA CO 3KING. 10 THB EDITOB, Sir — While public sympathy is so strong as regards Selina Cocking does anyone give a thought of her victim, who for the last five weekB has been in a very precarious state ? Blood-poisoning wbb caused by the absorption of the acid, and but for medical skill he would nave been beyond the slurs of the public, who take it for granted that he is the father of the child. I think it would be more charitable to do something for that innocent one than to blame him who has already suffered enough. I should be very glad to hear of the girl's sen tence being shortened, but I think it would be as well if the c&ee was viewed from both sides, and let him who is without sin cast THE FIRST STONE.
The Chronicle. SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1889. AUSTRALIAN WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1889. AUSTRALIAN WOOL SALES. A very important and interesting change is year by year taking place in the method of disposing of Australian wool. In tbe early days of colonial life settlers were content to devote them selves almost entirely to the work of pro ducing raw material for export, and to leave it to the inhabitants of older countries to transact the principal part of their commerce, to undertake almost all the manufactures required in a new country, and even to carry out the more important functions of government. Slowly but surely a complete change has taken place in these respects, while tbe Australian colonies have been increasing rapidly in population, In wealth, and in productive power. Fcr a long time pub the principal pro vinces have governed themselves ; almost every week some new manufacture is started or come old-established one is fnrC&er developed ; - and banking and commercial Institutions which have their head offices In Australia i...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
TO THE EDITOB. Sir— Your own views, those of Dr; Allan Campbell, and most others on our defence necessities partake of various phases, but principally of the one phase, namely, the almost universal sentimental notion of man's duty to maintain national prestige, as superior to bis duty to himself, to those to whom he belopgB, and also as superior (by implication) to his dutv to his Croat nr. Nnf-.nrifchofoinrtino' this largely prevalent idea as regards man's fighting duties, offensively and defensively, there are still two sides to the question, and this particular one, shorn of its ignorant and diabolical sentiment (although the same has been sustained by the most brilliant minds of the past ages and of the present age), stands upright, a spectre of infamous injustice to tbe masses— a dictatorial demand to men by an assumed ot licensed power of men to offer up themselves as sacrifices at the shrine of pro perty on behalf of the rights of property. As a believer in natural defence an...

OUR DEFENCE FORCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
OUR DEFENCE FORCE. TO THE EDITOB. Europe is a vast military oamp, strewn with iaflitn mable material?, and no one can prediot when, wbere, or how the conflagration may break forth.— AdueT' tiser, Febiuary 9, 18S9. Sir — The above is simply a reminder, such as nearly every one is the better for now and then. Still, its truth will not ba disputed by even the most peaceat anyprice individual in the colony, and even those who hold that our defenceleeaneesis our best defence cannot well be more active in arcasterly policy of inaction than that obtaining with those whose duty it is to see that our defences are of such strength as to obviate the feeling that were an attack made upon us we should be constrained to instant submission and peace offerings. In these days of free aud rapid communica tion tbe weak spota in an enemy's defence are generally better known to the invader than to those who are attacked. Those who watch your hand over your shoulder can see the errors in the game clearer...

INDEPENDENT ORDER OF ODD FELLOWS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — I and eeveral others were very much surprised on reading the report of the annual eesEion of the Grand Lodge of the above society in last Friday's Advertiser. The report says — 'The funds of the Grand Lodge amount to £5,934,' but omits to say how the money is placed, whether in the banks or out on inte refit. The riee in the grand secretary's salary from £100 to £150 is also carefully left our. I would like to know how this increase of salary is to be paid. 1 'i-,;-e not from the funds sub scribed to meet the death claims. I am aware that the Grand Lodge officers' salaries and the expenses of the representatives from the sub ordinate lodges attending the Grand Lodge sessions aie paid from the Grand Lodge inci dental fund, which is raised by levies on each financial member of the subordinate lodges throughout ths colony belonging to the Grand Lodge. By the report the levy is 6d, per adult member and 2d. per juvenile member per qu...
