COLONIAL BISHOPS. LONDON, March 21. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
COLONIAL BISHOPS. nflraatt-onr own Oorreroondent.l London, March 21. London Truth comments severely upon the return of colonial bishops to England when preferments are offered them with higher emoluments than were attached to their colonial offices. Truth also urges that the colonies should appoint their own bishops instead of applying to an episcopal committee in London, which, says the writer, is little better than a 'jobbing syndicate.' Truth recommends that the bishoprics of Sydney and Tasmania, now vacant, shcnld be filled by the colonies.
ACCOMMODATION FOR FARM LABORERS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
ACCOMMODATION FOR FARM LABORERS. 10 THE EDITOB. bir— 1 hope you will find room for a short letter with regard to working men employed on farms, their discomforts, and the harsh way they are treated by their employers. Now the winter ia approaching I hope that some of the farmers will consider what I have to say. With regard to the sleeping apartment in some places it is hardly fit for the oricinal inhabitants to rest in. The farmers will have warm cowhouses and warm pighouses, but they _ do not consider the poor working man, who is out all day with his team, coming home wet to the skin, and with wet feet sometimes. Having no other clothing to enable him to change be has to keep the same clothing on until bedtime ; he cannot dry himself at the fire as all the people of the house are around it. If they would have a men's hut with a fireplace in it it would be very beneficial to the men, and would give them fresh vigor for their next day's work. But, as I have pre viously said, they st...

PREMIER AND TREASURER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
PREMIER AND TREASURER. TO THE EDirOB, air— will you kindly allow me space to say a few wordB as to the advisability or otherwise of the Premier of a colony under responsible government being at the same time its Trea surer? The duties of the latter official are generally supposed to comprise the forming an estimate for coming expenditure and the keeping a tight and correct hand over the public revennes and accounts, while the former i is looked to for the advancement of the general i prosperity of the country at large. It is ; poesible that these duties may be found ' to claBh when combined in the same : individual? Let us see. Imagine this ; Siamese ? twin ? like potentate murmuring ! (through one pair of lips, as Premier)—' Now, I should like— nay, I fear I ought— to spend \ that £26.000' (or whatever the amount may ; be), 'but if I do ? ' (through the other* pair, : as Treasurer)— ' Good Heavens! what's to ; become ot my surplus ?' From this point i of view, at all events, it wou...

THE CASE OF SELINA COCKING. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE CASE OF SELINA COCKING. TO TEE EDITOB. bir— ueing slightly cognisant with the evidence in connection with the case of Selina Cocking, and as one having sympathy for the . oppressed, will you allow me.space for a few remarks? The case is clear to every intel lectual mind. We bave no thought whatever of palliating crimes of thia or any other eort. No : we wish to see the laws nf nnr land a secure refuge for the innocent and a strong fortress against evildoers. Oar learned judge very ably pointed out the treachery in the action of the prisoner. It is equally true that the young man might have received injuries that would remain with him through life, But this is one side of the question only. The hopes of this young woman are not only blighted, but blasted, as far as honorable and legal suc cess in this life is concerned, through this young man's conduct. His position and that of hia victim are widely different. Whilst he .can go where he chooses and has the opportunity of renovati...

ARE MANAGERS AND DIRECTORS RELIABLE? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
ARE MANAGERS AND DIRECTORS RELIABLE 1 TO THE EDITOB. Sir— Amongst the mining news in your issue of this morning I notice a statement that Mr. Sylvester Brown intends in future to debar any reporter of the presB from rutting the mineB in which he ia concerned. Now it appears to me, as a heavy loser over Broken Hill mining shares, that it 1b the want of reliable informa tion from an outside source which has been the cauBe of the Ioeb of thousands and thousands of pounds to the general public Through the misleading report of the manager of Block 14 some 12 months ago, and of the managers and directors of many other mines, the public have been heavy losers, whilst the managers and directors have become wealthy at the expense of the deluded investors. Had reliable infor mation from the reporters of the public press been always forthcoming, we should not have been bo misled. At the preeent moment it is the belief of many who are well informed that more credit is to be attached to the pres...
FARMERS AND THE LAND. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
FARMERS AND TEE LAND. TO THE EDITOB. Sir— I see by your papers that a great fuss is made over the farmers with ref erenoe to seed wheat and concessions, I am a colonist of over 50 years. In the early days of the colony there used not to be thia cry of ' What are we poor farmers to do?'' Nor yet the cry of ' Give us more liberal land laws.' I should like to know what can be more liberal. There have been farmers who have had the squatter or stock breeder turned off his run so that thsy may get selections in dry arid localities, and have bid at the Bale as much as £4, £5, and £6 per acre. Even if the land had been first-claes and within the' line of rainfall they would scarcely have been able to pay for it. They have lived some four, five, or six years upon the land, and many only paid the firet instalment, then threw it up, and Borne have bought it back at £1 0s, 6d. per acre and laughed in their sleeve to think how they Bold the Government. A great many call them selves farmers. What...
