THE BANKSIDE ANNUAL VINTAGE FETE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881

THE BANXSLDE ANNUAL VINTAGE FETE. The annnal gathering at Mr. Thomas Hardy's vineyard at Bankside is quite an institution in tbe history of colonial wine making, and is therefore looked forward to by all his employes —snd especially by the morejavenile portion— as the most important event o4 the grape season. It was in the year 1862 that Mr. Herdy first settled nesr Thebarton, and at that time te introduced the gsod old English custom of the harvest home into the more continental industry of grape growiDg, and every year sinoe he has held these nappy reunions, at which we had tho good the fiist fete at the end of a season which had mceaearily yielded rather small results there were only about seventeen persons— including employee and friends— pre-ent, but since then with increasing prosperity and the development of what is now one of the greatest industries of the colony, the number of those who eujiy hi) bcEpitality on these occseioos has increased until at the present time more th...

THE AGRICULTURAL SELECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881

THE AGRICULTURAL SELECTORS. An attempt was made by the last Parlia ment to enable needy selectors to tide over temporary financial difficulties by giving them the right to mortgage their selections. This right, however, was so hedged about by restrictions that few selectors have taken advantage of the Act. The number of insolvencies amongst farmers, although per haps not large in proportion to the number of agriculturists, is still sufficiently serious to attract attention, and calls for more con sideration than has been given to this matter. XL. ia xiub lu lug ueueiii. ul luq uuiiiO Lua.ii cultivators should be forced by a run of bad seasons to relinquish their farms, and any system which enables the industrious far mer to successfully tide over a few unfor tunate years without loss to the commu nity at 'large will not only assist and en courage him to persevere, but will abo tend to ultimately swell the revenue we derive from the sale of our waste lands.

THE GENERAL WESLEYAN CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881

THE GENERAL WESLEYAN CONFERENCE. Thb Wesleyan Methodist Church has se cured such numerical strength and such widespread influence that its proceedings command attention much beyond the limits of its own immediate membership. Time was when the press seldom referred to its existence st all, and then chiefly to expose its extravagance or ridicule its followers. But to-day it ranks among the leading forces in the religious world, and sways considerable Bower in the social and poli tical wor!fU'lt-ji not surprising, therefore, tiat its operations are watched with inte Tfist Ssy i£e^ community at large, and' frequently reported in the secular as well as the religious press. No doubt this change of public attitude towards Metho dism is due as much to its own internal development as to an increased appreciation of its principles. In the early days the es travngances of many of its followers, and the eccentricities of a rather large propor tion of its preachers, irresistibly invited the shaf...

?um: SA.TUBBA.T, MAT. 7, 1881. THE ELECTIONS. Teb elections for both Houses are at last over, and we know of what men our new Parliament is composed. The campaign has been longer, and latterly more exciting than usual, on account of members for both branches of the Legislature having to be returned at about the same time, a circum stance that las never occurred before since ~ bur present constitution was established,'; and may cot occur again for the next thirty ' or forty years, unless any alteration of the constitution should provide that as _ a rule, or occasionally through a special dis solution of the Upper House, the elections for both chambers should be simultaneous. The districts of Encounter Bay and Stanley have brought up the rear, the former sending to the Assembly Messrs. H. E. Downer and S. Newland, and the latter electing Messrs. Howe and Catt, the chosen candidates of the Farmers' Associa tion. Political parties, as far as they can be said to exist, are now endeavorin...

Gentlemen. — As I shall not be present at the formal declaration ot the poll at Port Augusta I take this means of acknowledging the compli ment paid me by the 335 electors who have expressed their confidence in me, and the desire that I should represent their interest in the Legislative Assembly. Your votes establish the fact that the farming communities were very generally agreed to accept me as their representative, and but {or the (to me) unexpected disclosure that the names of a majority of the agriculturists had not been registered, and many members of the Farmers' Association even being unenrolled, I am satisfied that you would have secured the return of those who would have made the agricultural interest their peculiar care. An analysis of the voting also shows that had this electoral district bees divided as was pro posed by the Electoral Bill which was thrown out by tbe Council I would have secured a seat for tiie Melrose...

THE DOCKYARD LOCK-OUI. TO 1'UK RTiprnR Bir — As no ready reason is beiog brought forward for the action of the Marine Board ia reducing the wages of the dockyard employes, the impression exists here that it ia due in some measure to outsioe pressure. Kow, sir, it is a well-known fact that influential employers are usiDg every excuse possible to reduce their workmen's wages, for it is a sore thing to them that Government emploj es get more than 4s. Sd. or 5s. Der dev like their own men : and some are of opinion that these persons have been exerting tbeir influence to bring about the present state of aflairs at the Port. It is rare that the work men are the aggressors in suoa matters in South Australia, but employers wil 1 find that by acting as they do they wiU bring about the state of things which exists in England and America, where demands are made for more both firmly and strongly before the masters get tbe chance of serving notices of reductions.
