GOYDER, April 28. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881

GOYDER, April 28. Since my last we have had a splendid fail of rain ; a little more would have been very ac ceptable, but as it is I suppose we must be satis fied. Most people bave caught enough water to cany them on for a few weeks. — Ploughing and sowing are now being pushed on with renewed vigor to make up for time lost in waiting for the rain.— On Sunday two sermons were preached by the Kev. J. GiUingham in connection with the anniversary of the WhitwarSa Chapel; there was a large attendance. Ua the fol lowing day tea atd public meetings were held. Tte latter was presided over by Mr. YVm. Adams, and addresses weie delivered by tha circuit minister and various friends. The pro ceeds amounted to about £15, which will leave about £1 owing on the chapel. Several selec tions of music were cicely lciiderod by a epeoial choir.

GLADSTONE, May 4. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881

GLADSTONE, May 4. It eeldem happens that three elections take place within a fortnight, but tush has been the case here. The Council elections were first; next came a poll for the purpose of deciding whether the district of Gladstone should be divided into wards; auduext were the House of Assembly elections. All these created a little excitement, as of oourse there were dif ferent parties in each of the contests. At the Council election the farmers did not show up very well, although more interest was mani fested in this contest than in any previous oua. The poll taken by the district council resulted in the farmers gaining their point for a division. xne nounaarieB nave oeen aenneo, ana a memo rial will shortly ba published.
