A STATE BANK OF ISSUE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
A STATE BANK OF ISSUE. TO TEE EDITOB. Sir— I am delighted to see by your issue of this date that my friend 'Pecuoia' is as lively »b ever, and well to the front with a new crop of quotations and some terrible jaw breakers of big words — ' ' mono- metallic system.' 'bi-metallio charmer,' and such like. He Eeems to have taken another friend of mine, ' G.M.,' under his wing. His brilliant scheme was for the Treasury to issue £1,000,000 sterling ot inconvertible notes, to be redeemed by a sinking fund 20 years hence, the said sinking fund to be employed in the meantime to make advances apparently on securities which would not be received by existing financial institu tions. I aBked ' G.M.' how his inconvertible notes, payable 20 years hence, could be made worth par, a question which still remains un acBwered. Can 'Pecunia'6olve the problem? Perhaps it is not worth his trouble, but should he eBEay to do so, please aBk him to cut it short, and not to talk about a monochromatic system, or ...

FEVER PATIENTS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
FEVER PATIENTS. IO THE EDITOB. Sir— I hear that a penon was taken to the Buira Hospital on Friday, March 15, ill with fever, and died there March 19 ; that the said person waB taken from Broken Hill to Glad stone, and from Gladstone to Jamestown, to go into the hospital; that being refused ad mittance he was then sent on to Terowie, and there had to sleep all nieht in a cattle truck. In a case of emergency like this the patient had as much right to be admitted into the Jamestown Hospital as inLo the Burra, and if such things are true it was enough to hasten the man's death. Some one must be to blame, and it is high time that the authorities looked into the matter to find out the person guilty of such inhuman treatment. Another thing I wish to speak of is that of the patients ad mitted into the Burra Hospital in a dying condition, They die there, and there are per Bone who believe that because they die in the Burra HoBpital the death rate in the Burra is -?ry high. They go bo far as ...

SOMETHING FOR NOTHING. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
SOMEIHING FOR NOTHING. [By the Rev. Lyhan Abboit, D.D.]J It always impossible to get something tor nothing honestly. It is always impossible to give something for nothing beneficently. This is true in other realms as in the commercial. It is violated by other methods than those of the gambler. The man who gives a dime or a dollar to a beggar for nothing does nothing to alleviate poverty, tie increases it. u.ms is tne lesson which thelaggard-brained world has been so long in learning. But wehave learned it at last. This lazy kind of charity is not charity at all, Tbis careless benevolence is not benevolence at all. He who makes the beggar earn the dime or the dollar, before or after, by service first rendered or by industry to be awakened and set in motion does a charity. But he who gives and neither demands a compensating energy before nor arouses a compensating energy after gives nothing. He has only helped a man to violate tbeuniversalandinexorablemorallawagainBtall effort however...
THE WALK OF FAITH. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
? «i ? THE WALK OF FAIIH. [By the Eev. Theodobe L. Cclyeb, D.D.I ''He went out, not knowing whither be went.' God gave to Abraham no map of the country before him and no guide-book to direct him. 'Get thee out of thy country unto a land that I shall show thee.' TbeBe were the marching orders ; Abraham obeyed, and jour neyed on whithersoever tbe heavenly hand con ducted him. This line, 'he went out, not knowing whither,' reveals the deepest lesson that a human heart can learn— the lesson of obedient trnet in God. It describes in one sentence the walk of faith. What is that? Is it a blind venture, a haphazard drifting along according to circumstances? Nay, -verily; it is letting God choose our path, and then walking in it, and not in the way that selfishness covetB. 'The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.' The walk of faith is just walking with my Divine Master, hand in hand, step by step, uphill or down, over emootb roada or rough, withont misgiving or murmuring. To *day £ ...
TRIAL OF THE NEW EXPLOSIVE ROBURITE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
TRIAL OF THE NEW EXPLOSIVE ROBUftlTE. At the invitation of. Mr. C. E. Stokes a party of about 25 gentlemen, including several connected with mining, proceeded by coach to Glen Osmond on Tuesday afternoon to witness some trials of the new explosive 'roburitej' invented by Dr. Roth, of Germany. The Grilles Glen Osmond silver mine waB first visited, and led hv the aeent for the exnloBive the visitors were taken some 900 feet into the Victoria drive of that mine. The experiments here were chiefly directed to proving the absence of after- fumes — a serious drawback to the use of explosives — and secondly, of course, the power of roburite. Mr. Stokes did not keep Mb spectators long in suspense, but quickly fired two charges by means of fuses. The reports were loud, and accompanied by smoke; but there was nothing in the fumes that the most fastidious could take exception to, and there can be no doubt that in this respect roburite is in advance of other explo sives. The after fumes ot explo...
LOSS AND GAIN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
? LOSS AND GAIN. I sorrowed that the golden day was dead, Its light no more tbo country- side adorning; iint whilst I grieved ; behold I— the Bast grew red With morning. I'eigbed that merry spring was forced to go, And doff the wreaths that did eo well become her ; But whilst I murmured at her absence, lo !— Twas summer. I mourned because the daffodils were killed By burning tkies that scorched my early posies ; But wbiht for these I pined my hands were filled W'th roseB. Half broken-hearted I bewailed tbe end Of friendships than which none had once seemed nearer ; Bat whilst I wept I found a newer friend, And dearer. And thus I learned old pleasures are estranged Only that something better may be given ; Until at last we find this earth exchanged For heaven.
THE MOUNT BRANDT MINE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889
THE MOUNT BRANDT MINE. The following is the report of the Inspector of Mines (Mr. D. D. Rosewarne) on this mine : —The Mount Brandt mine is situated abont 2£ miles from New Luxemburg, and on a separate line of reef locally known as Bremer's. The Bremer's shaft is 76 feet deep, of which 60 feet is vertical, the remainder being on the underlay. The reef is very small, averaging abont 9 inches of quartz, and the assays taken by me and tested by Mr. Goyder resulted in a poor return of 3 dwt. The May shaft is on a parallel reef, and it is 66 feet deep. The for mation is 4 feet of a coarse cellular quartette. The assays taken from the reef only contained traces of gold: The amount of work done on the mine is very small, not sufficient to deter mine the extent of the reefs. The poor results obtained and the small size of the reefs pre clude me from recommending for favorable consideration the application of the directors for a subsidy.
