Before the full court this afternoon proceedings were taken in regard to the War runt for the arrest of or. W. N. Willis which was issued in so Nev on july 14. At the instance of John Haynes charging him with having in 1889 used one Samu Csori As in Dummy in connection with a Homestead lease in new South Wales. The Crown solicitor or. Sayer appeared for John Faynes. Or. R. Pilkington argued that the fugitive offenders act did not apply in the present Case because a Man could not be returned to a British Possession in which to already a is. He could be returned from say new zealand to Australia. Willis was still in i British Possession and therefore could not be returned to it. Those who issued the warrant were driven to allege that new South Wales was one British Possession and that Western Australia was another. That was not the Case although it was admitted Australia As a whole was a British Possession. The second Point was that the warrant did not show that circumstances had Arisen which would justify a magistrate in issuing a warrant in West Australia. It was Clear that the magistrate had no justification for issuing a warrant. Further the warrant was not properly stated. It must be stated for whose Bene fit the land was taken up and it was not sufficient to say that a Homestead lease was taken up by Willis otherwise than for the use Benefit and advantage of the said Samuelson. There was no specific charge mentioned in the warrant. For the grounds suited the warrant must he quashed. Or. Sayer said he had no instructions whatever from Sydney. He had telegraphed for them but no reply had been received. He was therefore unable to reply to the arguments raised by or. Pilkington. The chief Justice in giving judgment said or. Pilkington s Point As to Australia being one British Possession was fatal to the warrant. Australia was under one Central legislature and that living so the Commonwealth a us one British Possession avid the fugitive offenders act did not apply to the various states which were not now separate British possessions. It was Clear from the wording of the warrant that the applicant was in a difficulty Over the matter. It was unnecessary to Deal wit i the other Points. The magistrate had no jurisdiction to Issue a warrant and defendant would be Dis charged. Or. Justice Parker and or. Justice Mcmillan concurred. Or. Willis states that he will return to Sydney by the Sailboat on thursday to so gaily Deal with my. John Haynes ind those who have been assisting that gentle Man. Early South Australia fifty years ago.

A commodious Wes Chapel is about to be erected at Glen Ilg two acres of land having been presented to that Community there by or. Atkinson solicitor. History of South australian the province of South Australia was founded at the of 1836. But the first selections of country land were not made till May 1838. Previous to that year no produce could be exported As none was raised. That year s Export amounted to �5000 a Small amount but the foundation of South australian Commerce. The pro Duce came from Only two sources the backs of sheep and the whale fisheries the latter furnishing four fifths of tic amount. In the next two years there were still Only these two sources of exports though in 1840 the value of the Wool had overtaken the value of the whalebone and the Oil. From that Date Forward the Wool Rose rapidly in value flocks of sheep having at that time arrived 1 Overland. The produce of the fisheries never again reached the height it attained in 1830, and in some years it almost dwindled to nothing. This is one of the branches of colonial Indus try from which More was anticipated than has been realized. In the Early prospectuses of the province a Good Deal of stress was Laid on the wealth to be derived from the whale fisheries and a Good Deal of Money was sunk in speculation especially by the Bouth australian company. But it has not been found a sufficiently profitable venture to tempt a continuous investment of capital and accordingly for several years past whalebone and Oil have foraged very insignificant items in the exports. Tic year 1842 is the first that is distinguished by any Export of Dairy produce butter Aud cheese to the value of Over �3,000 having been sent out of the province during that year. The following year is remarkable As that in which Cereal produce was first exported flour and Grain being sent out valued at More than �10,000. Never since has the agricultural Export be used. With Small fluctuations it. Has increased until during the last three years it has become the chief article of Export. The year 1843 is notable As the first in which Copper Ore was placed among the Staple exports �23 is the mod est amount shipped that year but in the succeeding be irs it increased until it Over to oried ail other exports. To to 1846 Wool was the principal Export but in that year though the Export of Wool Rose Lingher than in the precede us or two subsequent years the value of Copper exceeded it by nearly �40,000. Froin this time mining was the most profitable interest in the province until the discovery of Jerold in Victoria once More turned the tables and placed agriculture at the head. The Goldfields were Dis covered in 1851, but it was not till the close of the year that they produced much effect in this Colony so that the exports of Staple produce do not exhibit any marked change. The flour exported that year shows a great increase on previous years a Large Quan Tity Benj sent to the Cape where the Kaffir War had created a scared to. In 1852 the agricultural Export had gone ahead of the shipment of Wool which it had never previously done and in 1s53 the value of flour alone exceeded that of Copper while that of the total of agricultural produce exceeded it by More than �100,000. In Liat Yeai also the Wool took the precedence of cop per a precedence which it Lias since maintained and the pastoral interest now stands second in importance on the list. The warm a bases tragedy How Skinner was holed ? Edwards s confession. Melbourne july is. The trial of James Edwards on a charge of having murdered William Skinner at Taranga Basin on March 4 was commenced to Dav in Tho criminal court before or. Justice Hood and a jury. Edwards who at first showed signs of agitation soon recovered a fixed composure and pleaded not guilty. Upon the Case for the Crown being closed accused was sworn and gave evidence. In a scarcely audible voice he related How he travelled with Skinner and How upon his laughing at Skinner s Gamb Ling losses a blow was aimed at him with a shovel. I was sitting near the fire at the time Edwards continued and i dodged out of the Way. As i did so i reached for an axe alongside the tree. Skinner made at me again but missed me. He then dodged and i hit him is blow with the axe. Skinner fell dead. I was in a terrible state and at once set to work to get rid of the body. I had two bags to put it in. Before putting it in them i chopped it up As i thought that was the Best Way of a getting rid of it. I first undressed the body. I put weights into the tags and threw them into the Channel near by the trial will be resumed to Morrow. The political situation. Meeting of the socialists. Tiie fateful Day. In embers As Emoiy Nave Den Gra dually arriving in Adelaide to attend the preliminary meetings of parties and by read for the on Nimr of the session on thursday. The prominent men have How Ever been in constant communication one with the other but each Side has kept its own counsel. Nothing was More talked about in the smoking room and corridors on tuesday than the Rumour that or. Peake would Lead the attack on the government and would be supported by the socialists who would not accept a seat in the Cabinet. All that the followers of or. Price would say however was wait until i thursday and you will see to Day will decide matters for the final arrange ments will be made Between the opposition and the socialists and if satisfactory plans Are agreed upon the taxpayer who up to the present his been somewhat ignored and treated As if he had no right o. Be informed of what his representatives re doing or proposing to do May be let n to the secret. Many members on tuesday were conf Lent that or. Price was going to stand Lown and allow or. Peake s party to monopolize the Treasury benches. Should f course the socialists allow the oppose Ion to move in the matter the division against the government May be 24 to 17, ind some old parliamentary hands rashly predict a three years reign for the friends of the socialists. Commonwealth legis actors who Are in Adelaide at the present Lime express the opinion that the socialists Are certain to adopt this course they declare that in connection with the Federal party they have Learnt to fight shy of All alliances and judging from or. Watson s present action they look to or. Price to pipe and or. Peake to dance for three years and then to go to the country ind ask for More direct socialistic Mem Bers so that the party can have a minis try of its own. With a majority of Mem Bers of the House behind it. Tins View if freely endorsed by several of the local legislators. Or. Price will have the precedent of or. Watson if he adopts this course but at the recent conference the Leader of the Commonwealth socialists Ana oilers of Nis own party acre Isusi my restriction of their Freedom in the question of forming alliances. They were overruled and the following motion was carried that in the opinion of this conference neither the Federal nor stale parliament Ary labour parties should in the future i Ter into any Alliance that would extend beyond the life of the then existing parliament nor ? Grant nor Promise _ immunity from opposition at election time this of course is not binding on members Here until the party in South Australia has endorsed it but it is Singuhr that there was no suggestion of the socialists refraining from taking office until or. Price returned from attending the con Ference. In Australia the position is that in the Commonwealth parliament or. Watson is the Power behind the throne in Queensland or. Morgan has a coalition ministry with labour members in it and in Western Australia or. Danish leads an exclusive labour Cabinet which have not lately agreed among themselves. To Day the opposition and socialists will meet and at 2 o clock the Assembly Mem Bers will gather together to make arrange ments for the election of a speaker and chairman of committees. Sir Jenkin Coles will be chosen without opposition and Al Ali Bush or. Catt will eventually be elected to the a sit Ion of chairman of committees it is doubtful whether that will be Doue to Day. It will depend upon How fixed will be the compact of or. Peake and or. Price. On. Tuesday the socialists met us let Kenn 1 Lei. meet ing was simply for the purpose of discuss ing the question of the manner of the appointment of the chairman of committees. As was pointed out in the Register last week up till 1896 the practice was to appoint the chairman on the first occasion it was necessary for the House to go into committee. In 1sp6 or. Kingston established the precedent of Havine the chair Man chosen on the first Day of the session. On the present occasion the Premier issued a circular inviting members to meet to de cide upon a speaker and he also couple with the proposal the election of a chair Man of committees. At the meeting of the socialists exception was taken this and it was decided to oppose the election of a chair Rann of committees to Day. This have Learned Only applies to the time for the election of the chairman and has no personal significance to or. Calt. To to editor. Sir it is commonly rumoured that messes. Peake. And Coombe Are in a bad Way suffering severely Froni the Strain of pros Pectic state responsibilities but More acutely still from anxiety jest the aforementioned responsibilities ship do never rest upon them. Now what cruelty could be greater than the action of the Farmers men who hold the future of these gentlemen in their inconsiderate hands. How can the interests of the Farmers be considered Para mount and the sufferings of these South australian statesmen be accounted As nothing surely fhe Farmers men won t play the Lou hand game much longer. But the latest move is a suggestion Bluit the state socialists should copy the Federal socialists move and use messes. Coombe and Peake As or. Watson is using or. Deakin. Put them in office and the trades Hail party in Power am when Taliej have made the sum total of their humiliation Complete just turn round and secure their political extinction without a Blush. I am sir a curio of. To the editor. Sir i Sec that there is a probability of or. Peake s party joining the socialists for the purpose of ousting the Butler minis . Sir nov these Trentleman with to exception of messes. Peake and Coombe who Are really labour men cannot throw their farming supporters Over in this disgraceful manner. They were elected for the express purpose of opposing socialism and if in Stead of opposing they should join the socialistic party they May be very sure that the banners and producers political Union will make a careful note of it for future use. I would therefore advisor them to look before they leap. 1 am sir a . To the editor. Sir with non unionist s. Jetter in your monday s Issue i heartily agree especially that portion that refers to or. W. P. Cummins. . Being present at Henoll ing Booth Here All election Day i am in a position to know How every ounce of the labour strength was exerted to try and defeat that gentleman s return. A i abour Leader with a big Burly voice capable of being heard Many Yards away called out lustily this phrase Don t split with cum mins vote solid for the labour party. Don t split with Cummins from Early morning till the Booth closed and As the procession of each shift reached the Booth this labour agitator walked up and Down the ranks calling out More lustily than Ever the same term. The liberals of Stan Ley elected or. Cummins to his present position and his course ought to be very Clear and i for one Hope he will not be found voting against the present ministry. I am sir. A port Pirie. Anti socialist. A neglected inheritance. ? v ? the Valley of the Murray. Prospects of do elopement. Hope in reclamation and irrigation. Jbv it is not Coli Sideres Likely that the government will outline a definite policy for parliament in connection with the Rivers question. Tea Sec session authority was sought for the erection of barrages near the Mouth of the Murray but the Bill Only escaped destruction by the inclusion of a proviso that plans and specifications should be prepared and submitted to parliament. These Are ready and will be Laid on the table when the houses meet on thursday but before the work can be started it will be necessary for a Resolution to that effect to be carried. The greater question. So far As the greater question is concerned co operating with Victoria and new South Wales in the building of locks and storage basins the government is in a position of having to Mark time at the Hobart conference held in february the request was preferred that the Case for South Australia should be restated. Thia was agreed to and or. J. B. Labatt of the Engineer in chiefs office was set aside in order to prepare a report. Or. Labatt it is understood Lias Compi Eica a portion of his task and has presented a Progress report to the government but it May be necessary for him to pay a second visit to new South Wales and Victoria to enquire into the diversion scheme on the Murrumbidgee. In any Case a further con Ference with the governments of new thaw Nurt Victoria is foreshadowed. T has been urged that South Australia hould forthwith begin the construction of Ocks ? within its own territory a part of the comprehensive scheme advocated but the government considers that it is around to first pre ent or. Labatt s report to the other states. An attempt to obtain Victoria s a sent to push on with the storage works it Lake Victoria was met with a reply that nothing could be done pending the receipt of the information asked for at the Hobart conference. Meanwhile a Bill is before the parliament of new South Wales authorizing the of diversion works on the Murrumbidgee which will ultimately have a serious effect on the How of this important tributary. Ile chiming Idle lands. If a period of marking time must be faced in connection with the locks and storage basins there is. Fortunately no excuse for South Australia lagging behind in utilizing River water. Last session the government obtained authority to reclaim certain swamp lands near hurray Bridge and credit is due to the Premier for the manner in which tins work has been car ried out. No time was lost in getting to work and or. Butler will be Able to re Nort to the House that the embankments Are practically completed Aud that the Cost has been considerably less than what it was expected to be. The government will shortly be in the Happy position of be ing Able to offer 700 acres of Fertile land suitable for intense culture and1 Dairying. As far As can be seen the reclamation works at Murray Bridge will be thoroughly justified. The ii estion is what extent of similar swamp land capable of imitation by gravitation is available for the same kind of treatment that it pays to reclaim swamp lands and apply water Bartni scially cannot be doubted by anybody who has seen the object lessons of irrigation in the Valley of the Murray. Pro Fessor Perkins dealing with the question of irrigation on the Murray said or natural facilities for irrigation Are compare icly limited and it is a duty that own to air selves and our successors that not one of them hould be allowed to he Idle. In All parts of he world Rivers have generally been valued As the lie ways of Commerce and uie Means of inter a mrs betwixt the Shore and Distant Inland com unities. It were Folly to Overlook the treat ulv Antares of cheap freight thus provided by mature and Well regulated irrigation need not interfere with the navigability of the it Cirii. The recently expressed opinion that the unwritten Law of nations that regulates the flow f watercourses should be abrogated in favour of he states that control the sources of the Murray an receive no support from irrigation lists in this state. Not a drop of water that is ours by Law Ami surrender As much in the interests of future irrigation As in Hie interests of the navigability of the Stream. It Lias often Iwon referred to As a National misfortune that the Murray in its lower course at All events docs not traverse a More naturally Fertile tract of country. Perhaps in times to come when Art has supplied its Banks with a Vei lure that nature has denied our descendants May see cause to reverse a some what Hany inference. Even at the present Day there Leek not examples to show that after All this barrenness of the land through which the River has torn its Courso is Only relative. Let us remember with pm Derain that water is the first Factor in soil Fertility and next to water conies heat with which uie slurry country is Abun Dantly supplied.

Those familiar with the marvellous growth that is Oha of the Pioneer Zirri ration colonies. Mil Dura and Runmark know that the Banks of the Murray Are not dead but asleep and Liat it wants but the Enterprise of Man to awaken them to exuberant life. A hint by sir Win Cote. There seems to be something favourable in. Our climate for the production of Pessi mists. Anyway there Are always a Supply of sceptics As. Soon As any new departure in Industrial life is proposed. In the Early Days of the state Farmers were warned that they would Only be courting failure to try and make wheat growing pay on the Ade Laide Plains Only 10 years ago men to hip business declared most positively that South Australia would never be in a Posi tier to glow lambs and Export them to London last year nearly 200,000 carcases were. Slipped now Are told that irrigation won t pay and after the Premier stated Ait Gawler that he Tow unlit a Albert could be reclaimed and 40,000 Acrea made available for closer Opio is tin to the scheme was at once manifested. On the question of making irrigation pay it is interesting to turn to the report furnished to lord Milner. Kir a. Will checks went to South Africa at the invitation of lord Milner and those persons who Are still among the unbelievers when Ever the word irrigation is mentioned in Australia ought to read what the great egyptian Engineer note. Irrigation he said in his report is the foundation Stone on which alone can be built the per manent Prosperity of South Africa. Ibis authority advocated the expenditure of �30,000,000 in order that Only 3 000,000 additional acres might be perennially irn rat de. This said sir Willcocks would Render South Africa a very different country from what it is to Day and it could then contemplate the exhaustion of its Mineral wealth without exhaustion. Here in Australia Are asians for uie expenditure of �2,500,000 in order to Supply a permanent Sheet of water extending v5, Niles into the continent Andi yet there arc people so lacking in imagination so Deh client in Faith that they question the and visa Bleness of the scheme Hie extent of land which the interstate commission Esti mated can be profitably irrigated m the Murray Basin if water were made Parma Nentl available is 5,000,000 acres of which the area in South Australia is larger than the whole of the acreage put under crop this year throughout the state. The Lake Albert scheme. Why cannot Lake Albert be reclaimed fhe Lake As it is has no productive value. It is a shallow Sheet of water that and nothing More no riparian rights would be destroyed by its reclamation. Part of the proposal is that in the making of the embankment there shall be constructed a circular canal by which Means a Perma nent Supply of water will be made available to All existing frontages and a such client depth maintained in order that Small ves Sels May continue Tradina As at present to men Ingie. This would enable the produce raised by the settlers occupying the 40 acres to be carried by water. To Milan. I he scheme if carried out would greatly Benet these two towns whilst Lakeside owners would enjoy the same rights As they now possess � is it practicable experts say the scheme is not Only practicable but that it is a sound proposition. Professor Perkins made an analysis of the soil taken from the Bottom of the Lake and he concluded his report in the follow ing favourable terms i am of opinion that if the bed of the Lake in any Way corresponds to the samples that have need submitted to me by the Engineer in Clef there is no doubt that the composition is such As to be considerably above the aver age with the exception of the. One some what unimportant Point to which i have drawn attention i am Cunt Siuai Vuicic forc tha t if the Engineer in Chiee can pro vide for regular evacuation of drainage Waters and thus Leach out the Salt the bed will offer in every Way a suitable site for an irrigation settlement in Winch forage crops would be Raa Inry raised for Dairying purposes. I have no doubt therefore that the reclamation works will in the end prove directly remunerative worthy of consideration the Engineer in chief or. A. To. Mon Crit of has written As follows to the government consider professor Perkins s report most valuable As indicating the Superior character of the soil which constitutes the bed of the shallow Lake Albert and i am definitely of the opinion that the reclamation of the area now covered by the brackish Witter in this Lake is an under taking Winch is worthy of the serious consideration of the commissioner. I. Fully recognise that difficulties of ownership and riparian right will arise but i venture of forecast that these difficulties will not be and creater than those which exist in re Gaiotto the attempt to keep the lakes full awl Sweet. While in the latter Case there a t no of Milf hut Small Horte of remunerative results being secured it appears to me that in the former Case with the reclamation of 41,000 acres of land suitable for growing fodder Nikses and possibly Capa ble n irrigation for intense culture there would be a most valuable. Not. Seeing that the Cost of so reclaiming would be Romarn. Timely Small virile in addition it woul mean the Complete removal of the area of the Lake from the evaporating area which forms the crucial Point in regard to and Effort to keep the lakes full of fresh i Tor Why wait the Prospect of the closer settlement of 41,000 acres of Fertile land that at pre sent docs not grow a Blade of grass that does not carry a Hoof of Stock but on produces a few fish that will not pay. To catch is surely a scheme that should com mend itself to legislators vested Inte rests need not be considered for it is not proposed to touch even the hem of the ear ment of vested interests riparian rights will be fully conserved. The project is one that not Only appeals to the imagination it commends itself to ones judgment As being a National undertaking of the first magnitude one that will pay All round and Hurt nobody. In the Valley of the Jim Ray stretching 500 Miles through its territory. South australians have a Rich inheritance awaiting sympathetic treatment. Golden opportunities Are being neglected. Why Are politicians so fearful of doing something worthy of statesmen offences by natives. Government action in the West. Perth. July 18. In the legislative Assembly to Day or. Connor asked the Premier what Steps were being taken by the government for the Protection of the lives and the property of settlers in the Northern part of the state or. Daglish in reply said that the police in the North Kern districts had Clear instructions As to their duties where offences by natives were reported. Every Effort was being made to suppress native depredations. The commissioner of police was in the Kimberley District and would be Able to Deal with any questions Liat might arise.
