Hallett Institute. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 11 April 1879

Hallett Institute. The township of Hallett though compari tively young is not by any reason slow of growth or lacking in enterprise, and during the last year has made very considerable pro gress. Among the latest addition is a very neat and suitable public school and now fol lowing up that educational movement by another intended to benefit those who are older in years, or who have sufficient energy to enter upon a course of self-improvement. In view not only of these advantages but of the many other social and educational ones securing therefrom a number of the residents have determined to establish an Institute. Among many who have actively assisted in initiating the movement it would be almost in vidious to single out any in particular for praise yet the name of Mr. Smith at the Telegraph Station stand as one of the most energetic Already a piece of land has been secured and a large sum promised towards a building which it is hoped may shortly be commenced, and on Friday last as ...

A United States Judge on the Jury System. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 18 April 1879

A United Spates Judge on the Jury System. At-the recent session or the New York State Jar Association, Justice Miller, one of the United States ^upreme'Conrt Judges, thus ex pressed himself on Jtbe Jury cystem : — It requires all the vaneratun which age inspires for this mode {trial %f jtary) of dispensing justice, and all thai eminent men hare said of ite value in practice,^ n^want^^nataral reason from revolting against tbe system, and cp.pccis%«one of its incidents. If a cultivated Oriental were told for the first time that a nation, which claims to be in advance of all others in its love of justice, and its methods of enforcing i-, required as one of its fundament*! principles of jurisprudence that every contro versy between individuals, and every charge of crime against an offender, should be submitted to twelve men without learning in the law, often without any other learning, and that neither party to the contest could prevail until all the tfre've men were of one opinion in h...

Loans to Selectors. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 18 April 1879

Loans to Selectors. There is just now considerable discus sion in many quarters as to allowing Selectors to mortgage their holidays or in other ways to raise money upon them and the Register has given its readers a leading article on tbe subject beside publishing several letters dealing with it. No doubt the present tight ness of the money market is one of the promoting causes of the agitation but it has long been foreseen that as the selec tors became more and more numerous and so exercised increased political influence, there would be from time to : -,:: ; icessions asked for and in the . 4 t -tained by them beyond the origin: 1 intention of the various Acts or £he Agreements made between them and the Gov rn£*nk 3Sow- while many of the a sraJaOns sought by selec tors In the W laws-are IirrntHrements and are likely to besofroD the nature of the case, yet there is great danger that the vast influence that could be unitedly brought to bear upon the Government may at some time lie use...

BURRA V. MINTARO. [Newspaper Article] — Burra Record — 18 April 1879

BURRA P. MTWTARO. The return match between these clubs, as above, was played at Mintaro on Monday last. Play was commenced soon after tbe arrival of the Burra team, tbe Burraites taking the field. The wicket waa a very rough one, and before the first innings of the Mintaro team was over it was one mass of dust. The Mintaro played a good innings for 82 runs. The Burra team fielded well in all parts of the field. The chief scorers were Jolly .27, Hudson 20, Jessop 8, and Smith 8. Jolly's runs were made chiefly by hard hitting, over fielders heads. The Burra team then took the wickets, from which clouds, of dust rose with every movement of the player*, Snell and Belcher were the first to take the bat, and the former was the first to retire after mak ing 9 by good off play, bong bowled with a baU shooting frpm the dust. Belcher by careful play managed to. put 6 together. The only ?ethers who scored in thi- innings were Wheare 3 and Parks 1, which with 3 byes made up the total score of 2...
