Barley and Oats participate in die improvement and Beans and peas Are veil in Bloom.

Nobody knows clearly whether the debate now proceeding in the Assembly is a no Confidence debate or not. Or. Playford is trifling with the House. He stated that if certain explanations on a personal matter were not satisfactory to him he would ask members to vote against the motion on which the policy debate is being taken. Those explanations have been made there has been ample time for their consideration and yet the sex Premier still keeps the House in a state of suspense. It is extraordinary in any Case to propose that the Fate of the ministry should depend on what or. Playford thinks of or. Handyside but what he thinks of that gentleman since the explanations were made we do not know. One thing is quite certain. Whether unwittingly or not or. Playford did the commissioner a grave injustice. In support of his charge that or. Handyside obtained office As the Price of shameless treachery he asserted that that gentleman took care after the resignation of sir John Bray to make it known through a Mutual Friend that he expected to be taken into the Playford ministry. This the sex Premier declared was an absolute fact. Or. Handy Ide at once gave the statement an emphatic denial and reference to the Mutual Friend in question who proves to be the speaker shows that he was entirely in the right. Or. Coles did speak to or. Playford about or. Handyside s claim to consideration in the filling of the vacant office but admits that or. Handyside had not asked him to speak on his behalf. The speaker explains farther however that from his re Marks " or. Playford might readily have been under the impression that it was done with or. Handyside s As regards this Little matter whatever May be thought of or. Handyside s general relations with the late ministry and the part he took in ejecting them the commissioner stands completely Justi fied. His denial that he was actuated by Petty office seeking motives is further strengthened by the acknowledged fact that when sir John Bray had left the government or. Handyside suggested in pursuance of an idea As to which there had been previous Conversa Tion that if the attorney general would resign As he had hinted at doing there was now an Opportunity for both sir John Downer and or. Holder to join the ministry. Or. Homburg add its that or. Handyside expressed himself in favor of such a coalition a circumstance which is scarcely consistent with the supposition that the latter was so ravenous for office that he was pre pared to go almost to any length to gain it. The sex Premier does not come out of this particular episode at All creditably. It is True that the speaker provided him with a loophole for escape from a very trying position by stating that he might readily have gathered the impression that what was said As to or. Handyside s claims was said with that gentleman s knowledge. But what can excuse or. Playford for publicly presenting a Mere inference a mistaken impression As an absolute fact the sex Premier it will be noticed was not generous enough to express one single word of regret. And yet j nobody has protested More strongly than he against the repetition in the House of private conversations and their mis representation for political purposes. His Public action in regard to the present situation is in More than one respect unworthy of a nun who aspires again to Lead the House. Theoretically or. Playford s detestation of crisis mongering knows no Bounds but what sort of a crisis Monger is he who hesitates to raise a definite Issue who casts about to make i capital out of private pique and. Disappointment who utters vague threats j As to what he will do in certain eventual j tics and who nevertheless holds his Han while apparently he is trying to ascertain whether he will be Able to strike effectually or not ? or. Howe asked yester Day whether or. Playford intended to Divide the House. Amid laughter the sex Premier replied that he would consider the matter. Consider what whether he ought to be satisfied with or. Handy Side s explanation made Days ago or whether he has a Chance of so playing upon the discontent of the disappointed members of the late opposition As to get a majority to support him ? sir. Play Ford has Only himself to blame if the country prefers to accept the latter View of the reason of his hesitation. He makes Brave professions of disinterested Patriot ism but it nevertheless looks As though in vulgar language he were Only waiting to see How the cat will jump. If As is understood or. Playford cannot rely in his present line of action upon the Aid of that Section of the House which Calls itself the Independent party his Chance of brewing another crisis with the materials he thought might be sufficient for the purpose has gone. We do not know to what extent the fear of a dissolution May be operating on the minds of members but this influence can scarcely be absent As it is universally allowed that the Holder government would be fully justified in advising the governor to dissolve should a vote be carried against them. Or Grainger gave voice to a natural curiosity when he enquired yesterday whether in the event of the motion being negatived ministers would ask for a dissolution. But he must be innocent indeed if he expected any other than the diplomatic reply of the Premier that he could not state until the division was if ministers threatened the House their opponents would lie the first to condemn them for seeking to gain votes by resort to that device. To unmask their batteries before the appropriate time for action has arrived would be to take a course opposed alike to precedent and strategy. The difficulties under which the government labor Are illustrated by the varied nature of the corp plaints against them. It was not i considered particularly dreadful that j although one half of the Playford government consisted of members who favor a progressive land tax that govern ment proposed an entirely different policy and that having lost or rather abandoned this they met the House at the beginning of the last session without a word As to whether at the next elections they meant to Goto the country on the four Steps scheme a progressive land tax or neither. Yet because or. Holder and his colleagues have like their predecessors presented a programme Only for the session they ate pestered for pledges As to future action. Or. Kingston says he would be prepared for a dissolution to Morrow if he knew what policy and what ministry were going to the country. Now what policy would or. Kingston have been prepared to go to the country upon if the Playford ministry had remained in office or. Kingston s or or. Playford s ? sir John Downer to whom both or. Kingston s and or. Playford s views As to the Large estates Are objection Able is at one with them both in making trouble for the unfortunate Holder government. He says that if the ministry the progressive land tax at any time they should it now. The country was appealed to on that question at the last election and the present parliament is competent to Deal with it even during the closing session. If the govern ment do not it at any time they ought to say so at once. Sir John Downer urges established while there is any uncertainty As to future proposals if the Premier and the majority of his colleagues have not abandoned their taxation scheme for Good and All it would be better to know the worst at once. The member for Barossa is perfectly sincere and undoubtedly he tries to be quite fair but nevertheless he is playing the game of the enemy. It would entirely suit the opponents of the ministry to get them definitely pledged upon this question for whatever Side they took they would be certain to evoke strenuous and bitter opposition. Or. Holder does not propose to Deal with the matter this session because As he says truly the House is so hopelessly divided that there is not the faintest Prospect of arriving at any satisfactory decision. The business for the next parliament can surely be left Over till the next Parlia ment is to be elected. There is nothing to show that the government have any terrible revolutionary schemes in contemplation but whatever they May propose when this parliament is dissolved nothing can be done that the country chooses to forbid. Those who express so much Dis Trust of the ministry on this particular ground Are really betraying a want of Confidence in the constituencies. The meeting at the town Hall yesterday which assembled to hear the delegates from the citizens meeting at broken fill does Adelaide no credit. The gentlemen who came from the Silver City in a representative capacity came As messengers of peace. Not Only the fact that they were accredited by so Large a number of the residents of broken Hill but the Pacific nature of their Mission should have ensured for them a patient and respectful hearing. The interests of Adelaide and broken hoi Are at one As regards the Para mount necessity of a speedy termination of the strike. Every step that is taken to substitute conciliation for War is therefore properly to be welcomed. Nevertheless the delegates were received As though they had some sinister purpose in View. It May be attempted to excuse the discourtesy to which they were subjected by the suggestion that their speeches were of a partisan character. Tic delegates lament the action of the directors in ignoring that provision of the 1890 agreement which proposed to Settle All future labor troubles by Means of arbitration. But if their sympathy with the position in which the miners have been placed was too pronounced to please a meeting the majority of which had made up their minds that the directors were justified in terminating the agreement it certainly cannot be Cli arged against the delegates that they assumed to decide on the merits of the system the introduction of which is the object of that proceeding. On the contrary they expressed no opinion one Way or the other As to whether the con tract system is right or wrong. Their sole desire is to have the whole question submitted to arbitration or if that is not possible at All events to pave the Way to a Compromise by holding a conference. If yesterday s meeting could be regarded As & faithful Index to Public opinion the conclusion would have to be regretfully drawn that Public opinion in Adelaide favors War to the bitter end. We feel certain however that such is not the general View and that the vast majority of those interested and who is not would be infinitely better pleased to Avert the Cost and buffering of a protracted strike by timely resort to measures of conciliation. The dispute it is Clear cannot be settled unless each Side is willing to make some concessions j merely As a preliminary to a conference this is necessary. It will be seen from a Melbourne Telegram published. Elsewhere that the mining companies have unanimously and positively decided not to receive any deputation or enter j upon any negotiations until ticketing is abandoned. In View of this intimation the miners would be Well advised to j remove the pickets which now stand in j the Way of a conference. It was argued i by one of the speakers at yesterday s meeting that the Union Rule which pro Vides for pickets was approved by a committee of managers under the agreement with the men so that the latter Are doing nothing which it was not admitted that it was within their province to do. The argument of the speaker that the agreement proposed that there should be no More strikes and at the same time approved of a certain form of strike procedure is however surely a Little mixed. But in any Case the present position is that the agreement has been abandoned altogether and in order that the Way May be prepared for a conference As to the conditions of labor to prevail in the future All avoidable causes of offence should be removed. The miners have desired a conference All along Aud it will be consistent neither with their policy nor their interest to insist upon maintain ing a condition of affairs at broken Hill which is of such a character that while it lasts no negotiations can be opened. It is to be hoped that before the delegates reach Melbourne this obstacle will have been cleared from their path. Thi Wisdom of the policy of dedicating the 2,000 acres of land comprising the government farm at Belair As a National Park is indisputable. This magnificent estate has More than once been in danger of passing out of the hands of the Public but we take it for granted that it has now been secured to the people As a pleasure ground for All time. The act for its preservation was passed last session and in january last commissioners were appointed to take control of it. The first annual report of the commission was Laid before parliament yesterday. It contains ample evidence that the commissioners have been animated by a laudable desire to make the most of their resources but unfortunately these have been exceedingly limited. A Promise Given by the late government that provision would be made on the supplementary estimates for com mencing the work of improvement in order that the natural attractions of the Park May be rendered still More pleasing and More easily accessible was not carried out. The funds after wards advanced to the commissioners amounted to the paltry sum of �150, and this was supplemented by an amount of �47 received As. Fees for de pasturing Stock. Naturally with so Small a re venue it has not been possible to accomplish much but a Good Start has been made. Extensive repairs to the fencing of the Park were put in hand As soon As the commissioners had been placed in funds and other minor works were also undertaken. The appointment of a curator in May last was followed by the elaboration of a scheme for the construction of roads giving easy Access to picturesque portions of the estate and this scheme will be put into execution with As much rapidity As possible. A part of the design is the construction of an Oval. It is to be hoped that a sufficient sum will be placed upon the estimates this year to enable the commissioners to carry out their pro gramme of improvement on a Liberal scale. In order to Render the Park the popular resort which it is intended to be it is also necessary that the railway authorities should do their Best to encourage the passenger traffic to Belair. A Short train journey suffices to land the pleasure seeker in the midst of some of the most Beautiful scenery which our Hill country can boast. All that is needed is to liberally advertise its attractions and to Foster an excursion is traffic by Means of cheap fares. The delegation appointed by the residents of broken Hill to visit the capitals of South Australia Victoria and new South Wales held its first meeting in the Exchange room of the town Hall on tuesday. There was a Large attendance and the mayor of Adelaide occupied the chair. The delegates met with a Rowdy reception interjections Many of them emanating from individuals who had evidently attended the gathering for the Sake of amuse ment being so frequent that the chairman had to continually Jask for it fair hearing for the speakers. The latter at the outset explained that they did not attend As partisans of either Side but they wished to put before the share holders the terms of the last agreement entered into Between the min owners and the men which contained a clause betting Forth that All disputes should be referred to arbitration. It was pointed out that had the agreement not been departed from by the directors of the associated mines no strike would have resulted As had the arbitrators or the Umpire decided that the mines must in future be worked under the contract system the men would have been compelled to abide by it. The Burden of their remarks was that the agreement entered into Between the now con tending parties provided for All disputes being submitted to arbitration and that the associated min owners had forced on the present difficulty by taking matters entirely into their own hands and setting aside the machinery which provided foe the settlement of All Dis Putes. No Resolution was passed at the meet ing which broke up amidst uproar. The delegates left for Melbourne on tuesday afternoon but the Barrier companies association have positively declined to Confer with them until the Amalga mated miners1 association withdraw the pickets from the mines. The defence commit tee at broken Hill on tuesday issued a detailed reply to the directors manifesto. On broken Hill correspondent telegraphed on monday that or. Josiah Thomas who was sent from the Barrier to represent the True state of affairs to the people in Adelaide and Melbourne bad cent a wire stating that everybody he has met in South Australia so far is heartily in favor of the men. Or. Thomas states that this is to a certain extend misleading. The message referred to which was dispatched on monday morning after consultation with the leaders of the South australian labor party read labor men with us the legislative Council sat for about an hour and a half on tuesday the major portion of the time being occupied by an address from or. Cotton on the government policy. Or. Tomkinson obtained leave to introduce a Bill for an act to repeal those portions of the acts of iss7 and 1890 relating to payment of members. The minister of education gave or. Duncan information As to the funds from which the expenses for official ministerial trips Are taken assured or. Baker that the govern ment will ask the House of Assembly to give effect to the report of the joint committee of both houses which decided As to what additional accommodation should be provided for Meir Bere of the Council and promised or. Stirling that if necessary a Bill will be introduced to Amend the fences act of is9l the Conneil subsequently adjourned till tuesday next. In the legislative Council on tuesday the minister of education gave notice that on july 13 be will move that in the opinion of this Council a member should be appointed chair Man of committees of the whole Council. That the matter be referred to the standing orders committee for report and the necessary additions or alterations of the standing orders to give effect to the above developments in connection with speculation in the civil service Are now of almost daily occurrence and the system which permitted Guh a condition of affairs has come in for considerable criticism of a far from kindly nature. On tuesday further investigation showed that j the officer in the supreme court before men j to Contd As having appropriated moneys passing through his hands has altogether utilised some �500 which should have been paid in to official accounts. With respect to this it is under stood that his position did not entitle him to receive moneys but that this was permitted i through some laxity in the observation of the tules of Jim act portion of the government ser vice with which he is connected. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of or. C. C. Northmore the clerk in question who has of j recent years been Well known As a sportsman having been a Patron of both the turf and the i coursing Field. Or. A. G. Scrum gone formerly chief clerk in the department of the commissioner of Public work who left for the other colonies in the Melbourne express on thursday last has not since been heard of. The police Are however taking Steps to assure his arrest while or. J. G. Austin until recently clerk in the departments of the City Coroner and the Central Board of health appeared before the police court on tuesday morning when he was committed for trial bail being allowed. Or. If. C. Siekmann has been promoted from the i audit office to that of the Coroner where he j will fill the vacancy caused by the removal of . Austin. A meeting of the Council of the South aus i Ralian Branch of the Royal geographical i society of Australasia was held at the society s rooms broken Hill Chambers on tuesday afternoon when there were present the presi Dent sir Samuel Davenport in the chair messes. G. W. Goyder Surveyor general. H. Goode w. B. Wilkinson a. T. Megarey t. Gill Hon. Treasure Rand j. W. Jones Hon. Secretary.

David Lindsay from All blame in the matter. This decision of the society will be forwarded to sir Thomas elder. On tuesday afternoon the commissioner of Crown lands Laid on the table of the House of Assembly a paper containing the results of a further geological examination of Leigh s Creek and Hergott districts and a report upon a shale Deposit in the encounter Bay District by the government geologist and papers on South australian lower Silaran and mesozoic fossils by or. B. Etheridge iun., Lakeon Tolo Giet to the geological Survey of new South Wales dealing with the farther geological examination of country in the Leigh s Creek and Hergott districts and the alleged discovery of Coal at Mulligan Springs.
