THE AUSTRALIAN WHEAT SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

THE AUSTRALIAN WHEAT SUPPLY. The past fortnight has witnessed a sharp rbe in the wheat market throughout the colonies. The advance Is especially noticeable In Victoria, where prices have gone tip fully 9d. a bushel without any appearance of the top being reached. The publication of the agricultural statistics of New South Wales has j3tfA?MnA«3 4-1i#* (nii^ 4-1*a4 4.1*«* _f_U — £ ujeuiuodu uiii? idUb liuab luq JM31U UL the late harvest in that colony was the worst recorded for 40 years, and that the total return is less than that of any period since 1871. These are facts which are collected from the returns pub lished, and are consequently beyond dispute. But some of the inferences drawn from these facts are of a most debatable kind. For instance, the average consumption of wheat per head of the population Is set down in most civilised countries at oh bushels per annum. But the New South Wales statist estimates the consumption of New South Wales at about 20 per cent, more than this, ...

Mr. Berriman was a man who somewhat startled the inhabitants of that neighborhood by his ulfcra-demooratic opinions. It was a stroDgly Conservative district, and when he first came amongst them there had been some feeling agaiiiEt the master of Roseneath on account of his very Liberal views; but when it ' was discovered that he was a thorough good sportsman, a staunchjpreserrer of both pheasants and foxes, and that his Radical opinions were chiefly theoretical, he speedily became a popular man in the county. As for Mrs. Berriman, she was a jolly, good-tempered woman, who delighted in society, and was very catholic regarding it. There was no thing exclusive about Mrs....

CHILD ABANDONMENT IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

CHILD ABANDONMENT IN I SYDNEY. Some of the vices which afflict old societies appear to be ripening, with terrible rapidity in these young '{states, if we are to judge by the revolting cases of cruelty towards children which have been recently exposed *m the law courts of Sydney- A yo'ung woman named Kate De Lawarie — too young, one would have thought, for Her nearc to be so -iitterly hardened against the Inborn feelings of humanity — pleaded, guilty to eight charges of aban doning infants, and was certainly not harshly dealt with when the judge sen tenced her to five years' penal servitude. Her mode of working was horribly simple. She adveEtlsed that a lady de sired to adopt a child, and when unfortunate girls, anxious to be rid of what was at once a burden and a shame to them, brought their chil dren to De Lawarie she demanded a few shillings for expenses. The lady who wished to adopt was a fiction, and no sooner was the small sum of money pocketed than the hapless little victims w...

Scientific. GEOLOGY OF ARNHEIM'S LAND, NORTH AUSTRALIA.—No. III. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

§tkntifk. GEOLOGY OF ARNHEIM'S LAND, NORTH AUSTRALIA.— No. III. [By the Rev. J. E. Tenison- Woods, F.L.S., F.G.S.] xt will be wltnln the recollection of most of your readers that I recently gave a report on the geology of the Northern Territory. If I had nothing new to add It wonld be sufficient to refer them to that report. Bat there is always some thing new to say In this science. No sooner have ws recorded our observations than fresh discoveries force themselves npon our notice, and enlarge oar knowledge. It is, to use the words of Macaulay, 'a philosophy which never rests, the distant horizon of yesterday is its goal to-day, and will be its starting-point to-morrow.' Nearly three years have elapsed since I made my re port, so there is no wonder that I can claim to have something useful to add. The geology of Arnheim's Land is easy to bear in mind. There are the crystalline schists; there Is the granite which has displaced them ; there are the tertiary volcanic emanations, and th...

THE AUSTRALIAN NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

THE AUSTRALIAN' NATIVES. If the members of the Australian Natives' Association often occupy themselves in considering subjects as Important as that which formed the topic for discussion at Monday night's meeting jthe society will speedily establish a right to be regarded as something better than a mere mutual admiration club. The hearing of a paper from 1WV. IP. W. Tanlln. of the Prtfnfc Macleay mission, on the aborigines of Naninyeri tribe meant the compress Ing of much Interesting information into a small space by a practical man - of long experience, and the after discussion by the members of the association gave opportunity to Mr. Lindsay to express opinions arrived at aa the consequence of what he had gathered while engaged on his exploration work ' In northern and central Australia. Apart from the claim which the aborigines them selves have to be known as they really are, and credited with such intelligence as they possess, all accurate informa tion about them has a definite v...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

NEW ZEALAND. New Zealand seems to have fairly tamed the corner. It has suffered long and severely, but brighter times have already dawned and the prospects are cheering. The causes of its protracted depression were not dissimilar from those which ope rated in other colonies, but were of more tnan average acuteness. xnere was an era of artificial prosperity induced by wholesale borrowing and the free indul gence of a too sanguine temper. The period of inflation was followed in due season by the inevitable collapse, but as the one had been of peculiar extrava gance the other was correspondingly dis astrous. So long as Vogellsm prevailed no radical cure waB possible, for the only way in which ib dealt with difficulties was by postponement, thereby making the day of reckoning when it did come all the more gloomy. Prodigality in public affairs was infectious, and produced a crop of booms and unprofitable enterprises which not only shook the national credit bat caused wide-spread private ...

The Traveller. DELHI AND MOHAMMEDANISM. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

%\xt %x$todhz. DELHI AND MOHAMMEDANISM. TBt the Rev. W. Roby Fletcher, M.A.] In my previous papers 1 have Hardly mentioned either the Mohammedans or Aheir creed. This omission has been In tentional, as I proposed to devote the whole of this and the following paper to their iiifitory and their influence on India. The Mohammedans are too conspicuous a factor in the problem of India to be ignored. They count up 60 millions of its inhabitants. Many of its colleges are managed by Mohammedans. In every picture of a northern Indian city the aVo&lem mosques are more conspicuous than the Hindoo temples. The grandest palaces, the most graceful architecture, the strongest forts, and, most superb of all, the innumerable tombs are all Slohammedano. Having no caste to interfere with' their social relations, Mohammedans abound among the ser vants of European houses. Tney are the chief tradesmen of all the cities except Bombay, where the Parseea take their place. They are the drapers, the g...

MR. COLES AND THE LAND ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 23 March 1889

ME. COLES AND THE LAND ACT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir — With reference to clause 41 of the Land Act, it is really amusing to an outsider to see how Mr. Coles Bits on the farmers and the association. A simple answer any member oE the deputation might have given him in case of A.B.G. would be this :— If B or C got the land for 120 vpars rent free, the Government muat t ave received the rent 120 years in advance ; it cuts both ways. Mr. Doles says the farmers should not try wheatgrowing in the north, but he will not give them a chance to obtain anything foi their holdings. Is it likely that B will buy out A if he cannot obtain the same concession that A is entitled to ? and what difference does it make to Mr. OoleB whether A or B benefits by the con cession ? Mr. Golea'e interpretation of clause 41 defeats the end for which the Act was passed, and he knows it. — I am, &c , J.G.K. Burra, March 14, 1S89.
