The Totalisator. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion — 10 January 1880

TheTotalisator. SPEAKING of this machine (lie Avttralatrian says" From the first that was heard of the totalisator in this colony we strongly advocated it being permitted to be used oo racecourses and at similar places of amusement. Considerable opposition was shown to it, but wc believe that those who were at the first the loudest to condemn it, are now amongst its warmest advocates. The position we took op was, that so long as pub lic betting is permitted in streets and other places, such as hotels, &c., it was only con sistent to permit the totalisator; and that if open speculation is allowed on horserecing, then the totalisator is the fairest method that can be devised. The preamble to the South Australian act, in our opinion, puts the ques tioned the legalisation of the totalisator on what may be termed a side issue, and most amusing to read. In one vray, however, we quite agree with it, that it is for better for the rising generation to indulge its speculative propensi...

Public Institutions, TUB Week has drawn attention to & subject to wliich we have frequently referred, and which must, and before long, be pot oflly ventilated but legislated upon in such a manner as to meet present and future requirements. It is impossible that the taxpayer can find the in creating money necessary to keep our numer ous public institutions in n state of cflieiuncy. The more that Isdone in the shape of general charity, for that is what such institutions really mean, Ihe greater bccomc the claims upon them. The nccomodntion provided in our Hospital has been lately increased ; and what do we find 7 A very simple fact; mure accommodation is required. A solitary in stance may be acccptcd os proof of the cor rectness of our assertion. According to the IIrmh; " the Treasurer of the 13ribbn.no Hospital Ijns drawn attention to the very serious fact that the contributions of the public towards the funds of the institution must bo doubled in the ensuing twelve months in...
