Athletics. CYCLING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

gCthJito. CYCLING NOTES, gggj TBt Htjb Lamp.1 My Melbourne correspondent writes:— 'I suppose that you will feel surprised that J. W. H, Buest was not selected to represent us in the Ten-mile Championship on April 27. The reason isj I believe, that he failed to go to Sydney after promising in last August, This greatly annoyed the executive, so it is probable they have taken this way of showing their dis pleasure.9' Quite a special feature of the manoeuvring of the Ballarat battalion on Saturday (says the Star) was the use made of a' number of cyclists in the battalion, half the men acting; as scouts, .a td the remainder as signallers with helio g aphs and flags. It is contemplated to have a p rmanent cyclists' corps in the battalion to act it ? ecouts and signallers, but it is necessary that a -ery man should be mounted on the new pat t raof Safety bicycles, and not on the class of machine used on Saturday. 8ome men rode 54-inch machines, and others appeared on tricjcleB.

THE ACCUMULATION OF CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

THE ACCUMULATION OF CAPITAL. Tee general floating Indebtedness of South Australia, apart from Govern ment borrowing, for which in the main there are valuable assets to show, must have decreased considerably during the past few years. Merchants who were in the habit of renewing tradesmen's bills time after time have learned the necessity of being less accommodating ; store keepers, especially in the country dis tricts, have also contracted their terms of credit with customers; the sale of many articles of commerce for which long credit used to be given is now reduced to a cash basis ; and there probably haa not been a time for many years past when 11 book debts' constituted such a email proportion of the assets of traders as they do at present. Hence the ill effects of the recent poor harvest are not so marked as they would have been under the old system cf trading. There has been also a wise discrimination exer cised as to those districts in the far north where credit could safely b...

Mining Intelligence. ANOTHER MINE SALTED. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

doming Intelliglt^ ANOTHER MINE SALTED. Sisce the discovery of the fraud In con nection with the Prince George mine no more flagrant case of mine salting in this colony has been brought before the public than that in relation to the Great Northern Gold Mining Syndicate which has just come to light, and particulars of which appear elsewhere. It will ba remem bered in the case of the Prince George that the swindling was done by the throwing of sovereigns into a crucible while an assay of stone from the mine was being con ducted, but in the present instance the manipulation of samples has been the means of deception. The frauds were alike in one respect — their clumsiness ; but for audacity and impudence the most recent one could hardly be beaten. That prepared samples should be forwarded to the Commissioner of Crown Lands with a view to his sending the Inspector of Mines to examine the supposed rich reef is an example of cool roguery which we venture to say has never been equalled in ...

COMMERCIAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

COMMERCIAL EDUCATION. Of schemes of edocation, like the making of books, there is no end, and the study of them, however necessary, is becoming a weariness of the flesh. A year ago we called attention to the steps the London Chamber of Commerce was taking with a view to commercial education to enable yonrjg Englishmen to withstand the tide of immigration by foreign clerks, who were ousting them from employment in English mercantile houses. A committee was ap pointed, aa we stated at the time, and it has at length submitted its scheme. The gentlemen composing it are such as to command confidence and respect. Com merce, science, and scholarship are duly represented. The names of Mr. Mundella, Sir John Lubbock, Sir Bernhard Samuelson, Sir Henry Roscoe, Mr. George Ho well, Pro fessor Huxley, Dr. Percival, headmaster of Bngby, Mr Dlggle, chairman of the London School Board, and Dr. Wace, tha principal of King's College, may be cited as Indicating the class of men, representa tive and wel...

A PATRIOTIC SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Chronicle — 30 March 1889

A PATRIOTIC SOUTH AUS TRALIAN. Mr. F. W. Hawker !s an Austral iau native and a South Australian member of Parliament. He is now on a visit to England, getting experience. As an Aus tralian native he should be proud of his country and anxious to promote its in terests. Asa South Australian legislator the welfare of his own colony should re ceive bis particular consideration. But Mr. Hawker's conception of duty has been distorted by a misdirected poli tical education. Me imagines that he serves Australia by reviling it, and that the true friend of his own colony is the one who selects it for a special measure of disparagement. That this is hia unhappy state of mind is indicated by the way in which he spoke of the colonies in general and South Australia In particular at a recent meeting of the Royal Colonial Institute. Before that august body Mr. Hawker proffered the information that the colonies have borrowed excessively, and that South Australia has been a special sinner. It fell to ...

THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN WOOLLEN FACTORY. The reconstruction of the South Aus tralian Woollen Factory Company is a step which circumstances have rendered absolutely necessary. The present site of the company's works is at Lobethal. For five years operations have been carried en at that place with a fair amount of success. In spite of many difficul ties, incidental to the establishment of a new manufacturing industry, the company has been enabled to keep its head above water. Its business has been encouraged by the Imposition of a 15 per cent, duty on imported tweeds and woollen piece goods, and in addition to numerous;, orders from the wholesale houses of the city large Government con tracts have been let to it. . Bat the profits have not thus far been sufficient to allosr of the payment of dividends, and for this a reason has been sought and found.

©riginal §^tthh& THE NEW ELECTORAL BILL. The last parts of the Electoral Bill intro duced Into Parliament last session relate to 'Offences and Penalties,' the 'Court of Disputed Returns,' and ' General Matters.' Under the firat of these headings all the provisions of Act 141 of 1879 are re-enacted. The penalty for bribery, however, instead of being fixed at £10, recoverable ' by any person -who might sue for the same, together with full coats of Buit,' 1b increased to 'not exceeding £200, or to imprisonment with or without hard labor for any term not exceeding one year.' This penalty Is to follow on a summary conviction by a special magistrate or two justices under ttie provisions of Ordinance No. 6 of 1650. For so drastic a penalty the annals of election experiences furnish no adequate ground. The secrecy of the ballot and the impossibility under the South Australian system of tracing any man's vote render the practice of bribery perfectly uselees. The money that is spent o...
