It would create drowns a communities Lead to the establish is to of email schools produce strife Between them and enfeebled the system Wadi the state has built up at each a heavy wet to the country. 4. It will help to abstain schools Whigob. Avowedly exist for leu Gioya instruction and thus the state would tender direct monetary Aad stance to religions institutions. 5. It will be direct infringement of the principle of non Date creation in religion which Baa been this Colony. We have gloried in the fact that the interests of morality and Stugion can be sustained wit Bont the Aid of the state. Shall oar glorying be in vain i Trust not but if the capitation Grant is adopted it will be the thin end of a wedge which its possessors will not be slow to drive in deeper if possible even though it nay be pro a strive of sectarian bitterness and animosity. 5ebe question then arises what is oar Doty As citizens and ministers of Christ i take it that we ban not abrogated the former by becoming the latter but rather that we Are the better former by being the latter. I think oar duty is Manifest. 1. To resist any encroachment however insidious it May be on the principle of regions Equality or state assistance to religious bodies 2. To maintain an hostility to the proposal because of its per a icons leading. 3. To engage in an Earnest propagandist. We shall Nave to create it Strong conscience on the matter. Many fail to understand it Are affected by the specious and Jesuit Cal setting of it by the Boman catholics Bee nothing a it Bat a Grant Tot work done at a Lees Cost than by the state. We most let oar people know the danger that threatens speak in private and Public till every constituency is aroused to firm resistance. The fear in that if this in left to politician a it won t be Dene. If it is it must be by the revival of the class of men who secured oar present political and religions privileges. As it in the roman catholics Are bold Asser Tive and seek to overage both candidates and electors. We Mast be equally bold United and determined. 4. To advocate the maintenance of the present act in its integrity. She act May have defects some May wish an alteration in certain directions Bat in the presence of a danger to oar cherished principles we Mast sink All secondary matters and unite to resist the evil we Forsee. X know that i am Here treading on delicate ground. Many of my Deai eat friends Are Strong advocates for Sach an alteration of the Law which shall require the Bible to be read and instruction Given. If i was governed by sentiment i should go with them Bat my Xea Eon and judgment forbid it. I cannot see where the necessity comes in but i see difficulties of great magnitude created by each a course however it is not within my province to Dis Cubb this question now. In conclusion let me say that if the agitation leads As As ministers to More earnestly educate parents under oar charge to do their duty in the moral and religious training of children something will be gained and if we can devise some Means by which the churches shall be led to concerted action to engage in that part of education which does not come within the province of the state we shall wipe out a reproach against As and earn the gratitude of the rising race on the motion of the Rev.

Convened by sire to. Smith was feel at the chamber of a of fun to to Flor to to y Fly a pvt pm Fth the new of Aon Aldering what retaken to a genre the reservation of Ute whole of the main of the exhibition building for the purpose of Nodi diff Tranzo Aemon Sera Kras user waa a Good attendance. Sir e. X Sunn who presided Oaid that building before the Hoose Wane years ago he dwelt strongly on the necessity of keeping the main building few Public purposes we As the Friendly societies and More especially the chows of the agricultural and horticultural societies. He considered that the main floor along with the grounds Ahon lube retained for each purpose. Ear tear the Art gallery had been already allotted All the apace on the ground floor except the main floor had been taken and tie spaces to the Nunt and left of the main Entrance were also one now came a scramble for the vain floor itself. He did not know now they Felt on the subject but be thought they should have a fall understanding upon it before it wbb too late. If they did not think the government should give away the build ing in the Way they were doing they should not let it go without a protest. Hear Bear he believed it was Only a half Promise that had been made to the school of mines be to the disposal of the main floor. Parliament would probably prologue ibis week so that the protest most be made now or never. With re Gard to a technological museum he thought the galleries which were used at the time of the exhibition As Art galleries would make an excellent museum. The cellars he was glad to know were to be retained by the agricultural society for the storage of wines a if thought advisable they might wait on the chief Secre tary and ask what the intentions of the govern ment were. What he wished to retain for Public purposes would be Only the main floor now used As a skating rink. He was sure those of them who had been there and seen any demonstration would feel certain that it was not at All too Large for Euloh a purpose. Next month there would be a meeting of the old colonists and australian natives associations and he waa sure every part of the floor would be covered by those taking part in the affair. The Hon. A c. Hawke thought the pro position sir Edwin had made was a most excellent one and he might say that for a Long time past be bad regretted to see that the floor had been entirely used for the purpose of drinking. It seemed to him that the object of the government Wab merely to make what Money they could out of it and that he was sure was not the intention when the whole scheme was initiated and the building was erected. There was no place in the City except the town Hall which often was not available equal to the exhibition building in regard to the accommodation and situation a great Many Public meetings would no doubt have been held there but for the Rinkis. As one of the representatives of the City he was glad to be present to assist in the object sire. T. Smith pointed oat that grounds for the use of Friendly societies demonstrations might be made below the new exhibition building and this ground would always be available for the societies free of charge when they required it. So far a the school of mines was concerned he would see improve ments made to the building they at present occupied rather than have the floor of the main building encroached upon. Or. A j. Udney supported and thought it was essential that the building should be reserved. Or. Wood been agreed entirely with what had been said and begged to move that the gentlemen present form themselves into a deputation to wait upon the Premier and ask that the whole of the main floor of the exhibition building be reserved for the purpose of holding Public demonstrations and for other general purposes. It was highly desirable that the largest and most Central building in the City should be reserved for the purposes mentioned. Or. W. Hakes seconded and said that if it were thought at the outset that the govern ment Wab going to dispose of the building in the Way proposed he was sure it would never have been brought into existence. The very of erecting it was that it would be Avail Able for the use of Public bodies and Friendly societies. He was surprised at the recent proposition of the government but he Felt that when the matter was fully explained they would consent to Reserve the building for the per pee for Bioh it was erected. Or. W. A. Robinson said that the exhibition building was not suitable for Friendly societies demonstrations. They wanted an open place and therefore there was a move ment on foot to have the old exhibition grounds dedicated to the Friendly societies. For this reason these bodies ought to be left out of the consideration. Not that they opposed the reservation of the main floor of the new exhibition building. They if ally believed in the floor Beig absolutely kept intact for the use of tie agricultural and horticultural societies. The Hon. G. C. Hawke said there was a Good Deal in what or. Robinson said the proposition of the agricultural society was to move the whole of the Beds in the old exhibition grounds to the grounds at the Back of the Jubilee exhibition building. Sir �. T. Smith hear hear of course they would re quire a parliamentary vote As the expense of moving would be considerable. He did not think there could be a better site for the meet Ings of Friendly societies than the old exhibition grounds. He thought the request to the chief Secretary might take a somewhat larger scope than was intended at first and that they might Combine the two proposals together. Or. Gould m.p., said it would be an additional advantage to have the main floor set apart for the Popores for which it was originally designed. The chairman said he had held the opinion that the grounds at the exhibition building when the racing track was Laid out would bait the Friendly societies much better than going elsewhere. Or. Robinson they want a place of their own.77 nothing could surpass the suitability of the main Hall for demonstration pure Obs. Let them get the main Hall first and if afterwards the Friendly societies thought they could do better they could lend them a helping hand. Or a p. Lav Teancy thought it would be better to stick to the original intention of the meeting and leave the question of the old exhibition ground alone for the present. Or. Of Bonk on behalf of the Friendly societies approved of the main Hall As a site for their meetings and demonstrations. The motion was carried unan Imonell. Or. Robinson expressed a wish to test the opinion of the meeting As to the desirability of the deputation urging on the chief Secretary that the old exhibition grounds should be granted for the use of the Friendly societies but the chairman considered it would be an advisable to travel beyond the original objects which the meeting was called to consider and the proposal was withdrawn. Drown by in the Torres. An inquest was held at the elephant and cattle hotel on monday morning by the City Coroner on the body of mis. Denton who was found drowned in the Torrens on saturday afternoon. Henry p. Denton land agent husband of the deceased said he last saw her alive on Friday Moraine Short la after 8 o clock. She was then at Home and he was leaving for Bubin eee. She appeared to be quite Well he did not return Home till saturday morning be tween 12 and 1 o clock. At the time he left on Friday deceased expressed her intention of going to see her daughter and a the waa not at Home on saturday he concluded she bad done so. Finding be did cot return he went to the Post office to enquire if there was a letter from her but there was none. On sunday morning his son informed him that she had not been to his daughters and on making enquiries found that her body bad been discovered in the Torrens. She had been greatly depressed in spirits she had often said life was not Worth living and had expressed Ier intention of committing suicide. He had been informed that she had property with her but be did no think any harm had been done to her. Or. Robert. Tracey Wylde of the Sema Phore said he had attended mrs. Denton for nearly two years. She had suffered a great Deal from the heart and the brain had been affected. At times she had a Good Deal of a rent a excitement followed by great Depres Sion. She ome to him on november 6 in a very excited state and after conversation he took her Home. Her symptoms were those of inability to Settle Down and rest. Her relations were always extremely kind to her. From his general observations he concluded that she was a woman whom he would suspect As Likely to commit suicide in a state of mental depression. Annie White servant in the employ of or. Denton said the deceased had been very Low spirited at times.

The Barossa water scheme. In accordance with a requisition to the mayor a Public one Trig was held in the Gawler Institute on Friday november 29, the mayor or. J. Jones occupying the chair. There were Piee ent on the put form sir j. W. Downer the Hona Jaines Martin h. E. Bright and j. Warren . A and others. A number of apologies were received for non attendance. The mayor in opening a i ? a Amir via waa Nunn riot was no echeme equal to the Bac Ogra water scheme for supplying Adelaide the port and intermediate towns. Or. G. Taebin proposed that in the opinion of this meet ing the Barossa water scheme in in every Way super to the proposed Happy Valley scheme a a National work and a capable of not Only supplying Adelaide and its suburbs but will also Supply the railway and townships North of Adelaide with an abundant Supply for Many years at a cheaper rate than the proposed Happy Valley scheme he said that the commission appointed by parliament had out of several schemes selected the Barossa and Happy Valley schemes being however in favor of the latter. Both from a financial and capacity Point of View the Forrler was far Superior. The Engineer in chief had said that he looked upon the Barabba site a of the very first class and the Best water would be obtained from Barossa the government geologist had also said Yon could not have better Rook for retaining water and the Rock was without joint a and got closer grained lower Down after such evidence there could be no doubt a to the value of the scheme the speaker went on to say that he knew the whole of the Barossa land Tor he was brought up on it. There was but a trifle of it available for cultivation not a Quarter while the balance Wab Only fit for grazing and would never be cultivated consequently no contaminating matter could enter the water. Or. E. Lucas seconded the proposition. They had reached a crisis when something must be done and there were two a cheques one of which must be carried. There was no doubt that an extra water Supply Wab required for the City. He was no advocate for reckless expenditure and would rather both by Heine should be postponed for vigorous examination. The Happy Valley was sprung As a Surprise on the country. The speaker then went on to criticise the five Points alleged in favor of the Happy Valley scheme. He considered that the Quality of the water in the South Para was equally food that provision could be made for the settlement of the water but the vat body of water that would be contained in the body of the Arosea dam would neutralise the effect of flood settlement. A separate set of trains could also be provided for it was never intended that the water should to led to Hope Valley with respect to riparian rights he believed the question was Only brought for Ward to frighten timid souls. Or. Culcheth bad said that the benefits received would amply Amend for any Little damage at the Onset. But he would Point out that while the South Para would be dammed the North Para which joined it below Gawler and which had a much More constant Stream than the former would still be open. People interested such a Means. Bray Clement and others stated that the damage to the landowners would be comparatively Small. With respect to the coat though the Barossa scheme might be dearer to Start it would be cheaper in the end. This the speaker proved by show ing the larger Quantity of water that would be i available and that would pay Well. Be thought i it absurd to Bay that irrigation would not pay in their country when there was to much Evi i Dence that where it Wab used it paid highly even when is. 6d. Had to be Given for 1,000 Gallons. Surely when it could be got for 3d, it would pay. He believed that if the govern ment was to resume say 7,000 acres and but them into blocks that the value of the land would be greatly increased a Noj jihad More than compensate for the outlay 2 if Chaffey Brothers Orold make Renmark a Suc Cess with irrigation he did not see Why the Gawler Plains land would net do As much and More. Sir j. W. Downed said it was Home years since he introduced the Barabba scheme into the Assembly a a Means of increasing the water Supply of the City. It was met with the argument that the Supply was quite adequate and that thee Aeme would involve Large expense without adequate compensation. Later on be introduced it As an irrigation scheme and then As the House wanted further enquiry he suggested a com Mission to take evidence. The gentlemen selected for that commission were mostly declared opponents to the scheme and the Hon. J. Martin was at first omitted. He the speaker was chosen but As he Felt he should be alone and that the result was a foregone conclusion he declined to sit. It was then found difficult to get any one to fill the place and. The Posi Tion was hawked about and finally offered to or. Martin but he believing himself ill aed also declined he entertained the greatest respect for the members of the commission and believed their conclusions were arrived at after deep thought. Still one would scarcely select a judges those who were antagonistic for they would be More than human if they did Sot rather seek evidence to justify themselves. He was not therefore surprised at the re port Bat rather that there was so much evidence taken he was surprised that after 4l meet Ings in which they took evidence which he thought pointed most strongly in favor of the Arosea scheme that almost at the last meet ing a scheme Wab brought Forward that had never been heard of before when the work of the commission was Over. Without taking one single word of evidence about the new por postal they forgot the 40 meetings held the commission made a Tabula Rasa of their memories and adopted the new scheme. To him it was Aeto Anding. He did not intend to go deeply into the matter at that meeting As he would have opportunities of doing so in another place. He would however say that the Point was gained that there must be a better water Supply and they had it proved that theirs was the Best site that the ground had Good holding capacity and that they had an abundance of water. The Horn h. E. Height Taid he had come to gather information and he thought an exceedingly Good Case had been made out. But there were two sides to every question and they should know the Cost before they commenced. From experience he was not altogether satisfied with the re turns from government offices he did not think there was the slightest Chance of the Happy Valley scheme being passed this sese Iod and he was sore that farther Evi Dence would show the advantages of the Baross scheme theron a washes ., was sorry that no other member of the com Mission was there to take its part. It was not their fault that or. Martin bad not a beat at the Board and at firs they absolutely re Fueyd to go on with the business unless he was placed there the Happy Valley scheme did not come As such a Surprise As sir j. W. Downer had said the Onka Sariaga scheme was mooted at their first meeting. The reports showed that the bed of that River was not Good holding ground. Up to August 26 they were not in a position to enquire into the scheme and they then visited the place. A great Deal of thought was Given to the scheme but no evidence besides that of the Engineer in chief was taken. He protested against the Harry with which the report was the schemes he found the Barossa by far the better of the two. He had said so much in another place on the matter that he did not think he need add much More. He had there spoken very Folly and his assertions were unchallenged. With respect to the coat they did not know whether the Barossa scheme would be so expensive for if the rip rap dam could be constructed at anything like the Cost in America it would Cost less than the Happy Valley scheme and Supply doable the amount of water. The Barossa scheme would furnish a much greater pressure than the other and As a separate main to the port could be carried irom dry Creek it would be a great Benefit to the place. At present they complained of an in sufficient pressure More especially apparent in cases of fire. The speaker ridiculed the of the dam silting up and said it would take Iran redb of years before it would be affected to any appreciable extent.

The following Are the reports of the umpires c brigade major Lovett and major Gordon on the Sham tight Bioh took place on november 11 at Burnside with some remarks by major general Downes. Major Lovett who Wai the Umpire of the defence Force reports the officer com manding the defence Force was placed at great disadvantage by the order that he was not to commence any operations until 3 o clock his scouts were therefore unable to give him the timely warning necessary to select the most advantageous position. His Foroe which was unavoidably much too Small for the Large extent of front it had to hold was therefore scattered and difficult to command As one line of defence. The natural remit being that his flank was turned on the right Hii line of resistance broken in the Centre and his left Wing both detached and turned and consequently placed out of action nevertheless it is very doubtful if the attackers exp need As they were for Folly 10 minutes to infantry fire and in fall View of a Battery of Field artillery playing on them at 2,000 Yards Range could have descended the Bare face of the Bills with no cover whatever. Even had it done of i feel sure it would have been checked at the Corner of the Asylum and Greenhill Road a Bilbo crossing the open Plain against the Field Battery supported by the 3rd battalion. The officer Oom minding the defence Force would i think have done better had he taken the Good Caver afforded by the Beaumont Road As his real line of defence with half company detached parties to protect his flanks and Small outposts towards the Bills. Faults particularly noticeable in defence were the scattered and therefore unmanageable formation adopted and want of cohesion the wild fire opened by the 3rd battalion at impossible Range the expenditure of ammunition almost uncontrolled which left Little or none for a second stand the ordering Forward of Captain Kiu coat a com Pany across open ground against a Superior Force under Good Cove which must have been annihilated two guns should have been on the Beaumont Road even at the risk of capture a better line of defence might have been taken up by the Asylum but it is probable that the officer commanding did not consider himself at Liberty to alter so much the proposed scene of action major Gordon who was the Umpire of the attacking Force reports the movements of the attacking Force from mount lofty rail Way by at Ion up to the bivouac King ground were carried out smartly quietly and efficiently the arrangements made by the commanding officer lieutenant colonel Madley for descending on to the Plains within the boundaries allowed were Well conceived. The operations ordered to be carried out on first learning the actual position of the enemy i.e., to make a strode attack on the front of their position at the same time to dispatch a sufficiently Strong Force under cover of the Hills to turn their right flank and Force them to retire from the City were Good and steadily carried out. I do not consider that the fire of the pub from the position first taken up by the defending Force a artillery would have inflicted any material loss on the attacking Force the taking up of this position waa however unavoidable owing to the nature of the ground in the neighbourhood. The breaking up of the first or lighting line of the defending Force due to the successful attack on their right flank was Well and promptly Takenda Vantage of and there by the descent on to the Plains was made Good the second position taken up by the artillery of Tho defending Force supported by the 3rd battalion militia infantry was Vety Good and i consider that the artillery fire from this Poi ii Tion about the beat distance for the use of shrapnel Shell would have so crippled the attacking Force that they could not further push their advantage from the foot of the Hilla. On the whole the men worked steadily Aad Well orders were quickly and intelligently carried out and the pm Bique of the troops underwent a severe test with satisfactory results the commandant major general Downes adds the following remarks to the umpires reports attack Force. The manner in which the troops were taken across the open part of the Road to the Eagle on the Hill and from their bivouac conducted to the Crest of the Hill overlooking the Plain was very Good. On arrival at this Point there should have been no delay when once exposed to the enemy s View. All arrangements should have been made before exposure and then the attack should have been pressed Well Home. As it was companies were kept exposed at the halt for some minutes to artillery fire and the men thus exposed stood up instead of lying Down. The right wine lost time at first descending the Hill and then halting when nearly a their Post but Well made up for this error by their after steady and determined Advance. The remainder of the attack was Well posted Home and the men were Well under control. A question has to be considered How far the artillery fire of the defence would have prevented an attack As then made. The artillery position was very nearly 2,500 Yards Distant with their infantry at intervals probably 700 to 800 feet above it. The effect of shrapnel Shell at this distance firing up to this height would not i think have had any great effect upon the attack who really should have Only been a very few minutes exposed to it a the guns could not for Long fire Over their own troops. Doubtless if the guns had been 12-Pounder . Instead of the obsolete 16 Pounders m.l., the Case for the artillery would have been far More probable defence. Owing to unavoidable Circum stances such As cultivated ground houses Gar Dens a Many positions which might have been taken up could not be made use of neither could communication be readily made along the line hence the artillery were posted too far off but at least two guns might have been put somewhere near Beaumont or barn bide. It would have been better for the defence to have been somewhat More retired. The right Wing sacrificed itself by not retiring before being completely outflanked on its inner Side. The Centre retired in column and should have been destroyed before entering the Olive Grove where a stand should have been made in order to re establish touch with the left Wing. The left Wing never leaving its position till too late we surrounded on three sides and entirely Cut off. The 3rd battalion near the artillery conducted a useless and Wae Lefoi fire so no attack could have been within 1,000 Yards of them. Doubtless the real position Lunatic Asylum racecourse could have been held very strongly and the open ground in front thereof could not have been passed by the attack if there had been reserves at hand but a it was nearly half the defence was out of action inspection of the third battalion. On saturday november 30, the 3rd battalion . Paraded in full marching order at Montefiore Hill for inspection by the major ? general go mandant. The Parade state showed one lieutenant colonel 1 major 1 adjutant 1 Captain 7 lieutenants 2 sergeant majors 16 color sergeants and sergeants 13 corporals 1 Pioneer 3 butlers 150 privates. The whole were under the com Mand of lieutenant colonel Lovely who had with him major Peters Wald and Captain adjutant Ham Rison. The battalion in line received the general with a general Salute after Wei Bithe commandant inspected the arms and accoutrements of the men. They were then Pat through the manual and firing exercises and they marched past in fairly Good order considering that the battalion has had so few drills owing to its recent formation. The commandant then inspected the individual companies of the battalion after which head dressed the men. He said considering that the battalion had Only recently been formed he was pleased with the manner in which they had turned out though he would like to see More attention Given to Little details. The Volley firing Wab not As Good As he would like but he hoped before the next annual inspection they would greatly improve in that direction. The battalion was then marched Back to the Parade ground and dismissed. The members of the militia band adjourned to the plough a a Harrow and drank with musical honors Success to colonel Lovely and the 3rd Bat Talion three cheers were also Given for sergeant major Presb. ? school of Mises and Indus tries first annual examinations 1689, physics.

Quito you Laid on the table of the Hoot of asset try a tuesday afternoon Tbs Jour song report by the Western land Board on lands lately returned in the Fowler Bay Dii Triet acting on minute dated september 25, 1889, instructing the Board to proceed to Fowler a Bay for the purpose of inspecting lands lately resumed in that District comprising about 660 Square Miles situated West of the Hundred of Oatt and included in six new hundreds nos. 338-43% we Nave the Honor to report that the Board having met on tuesday october 23, proceeded at once to the country referred to and after making a thorough inspection of the whole of each land completed the examination on thursday november 14. The soil through out is very similar a Light Sand and Lime the subsoil a rubble Limestone except that upon the open Grassy Flats where it is firmer and deeper and adapted to wheat growing if the rainfall is sufficient. Toe whole May be summarised As follows the Belt land is that bordering on the main track running Westerly through the hundreds containing approximately an area of 117.000 acres and May a classed As Light Sandy soil undulating and Flat with from fairly to Well grabbed Plains and open . The second class land May be roughly estimated to con Tain 122,000 acres of Good and fair sheep country lightly grassed and soil poor with patches of Salt Blue and other Bushes and partly timbered with Mallee Myall and Sandal Wood and Blackak. The area of the third Clubb country is approximately 170,000 acres. That on the Northern portions of hundreds no. 338 and 339 bears indications of a very dry climate the vegetation consist ing of poor Salt and Blue Bush up Miles and Mallee scrub. The Rountr included in the Southern portion of Nob. 340, 311, 342, and 343 averaging five Miles in Width in also very poor Sandy soil nearly the whole being covered with dense Mallee and Tea tree scrub with scarcely any other vegetation excepting a narrow strip on the coast which is fair summer pasture. Although Stock water of various qualities has been found in places at a depth of from 50 to 60 feet the difficulty of obtaining water fit for Stock in Many parts or this country will be the greatest drawback to settlement. The Board is unanimous in the opinion that a Good living May be made by those settlers who secure sufficient land to enable them to Combine grazing with cultivation Bat to depend entirely upon grow ing wheat would be hazardous and might end in disappointment. It is Gratifying to note the entire absence of wallabies and rabbits on the whole of the land inspected. We have under consideration a plan of the subdivision of the land and propose to Complete and sub Mit same for approval at an Early Date to Gether with schedule giving description and Price of each Block.

The trades and Council. A largely attended meeting of the trades and labor Council Wab held at the sir John Barleycorn hotel on Friday nov. 23, when or. D. M. Charleston the president occupied the chair. After the routine business had been disposed of tax. Charleston retired from the chair and or Kie Rogers took Bis a Aoe. Or. A. A. Kibe Fatback on a motion for the suspension of the standing oders referred to their president having taken a prominent part in a meeting recently held to discuss the subject of the single tax or Cea Eleston said he had attended As a private individual. Or. Kiekpatrick said that outside it Wab deemed that while their Council were protectionists the president had taken a prominent part at a free Trade meeting tie had placed them As a Council in a Peculiar position and he thought they should declare what their real policy was. He moved that seeing that the president of this Council took a prominent part at a Public meeting at the town Hall to Forward the objects of the party in favor of the single tax which Means absolute free Trade to prevent any misapprehension As to the policy of this Council on the question this Council declares that it cannot support any movement that is opposed to the policy of Protection or. Gaid that the meeting he was invited to attend was in reference to a taxation Reform league. Some people who did not know him had taken a prejudice against him As a dangerous Man and therefore he thought that the More prominent part he took in Public proceedings and thus disabused the minds of these people the better it would be for the Council. The Resolution which he moved at the meeting in the town Hall was in accordance with his own views and what he said was certainly not in antagonism to the principles of Protection. If what he said was in opposition to the views of the Council he was willing to resign his seat As their president he went to the meeting not a a member of the taxation Reform league Bat As a guest. He then read the speech delivered by my at the league meeting at the town Hall or. W. A. Robinson moved As an amendment that being that the president in the course of his speech did not say anything in contravention of the protectionist principles of the Council but rather supported them the thanks of this Council be tendered to him or w. Bice food seconded. Or. Tracey thought that the speech delivered by or. Charleston could be taken in two ways own part he did not understand it. He regretted their chairman had spoken at the meeting in question. Or. A Salmon supported the proposition. It was Well known that they were stanch protectionists and the taxation league meeting was in his opinion merely an attempt to get in the win Ena of toe wedge a int Protection Ixl. S. Peacoe who was at the meeting deemed it to have been practically a protectionist one with the exception of the disclaimers of or. Glynn and another free trader. He would support the amendment. Or. Kiek Pateick in reply pointed out that the Dis Cussion which had taken place was away from his motion All that he wanted Wab to counter act the impressions which had gone abroad in relation to or. Charleston being present and speaking at the taxation meeting. He had no desire to cast any reflection on their president. He believed that what he bad done was done in error and this they were All liable to fall into. The original proposition was carried the words taxation Reform league being however substituted for Sinele tax As moved by or. Kirkpatrick. Or. Cd Ableson who resumed the chair said that he placed Bis Resigna Tunas president of the Council in their bands.

Since the attn Tara Fuwk puce in the Effate duties Bui the that they ctr Ald he to relinquish Tacti prop East for free education. They had Alao promo met which depended on tree education and the Bui was word for word the same As that introduced it year. Or. Bees wid when he saw this notice of motion he thought it was just one of the parting Shoto of Bubo Tetli tic of the doing Toenea of parliament and a Wou mask the Ohlef Secretary whether be was really in Earnest in this matter and whether there was any reasonable expectation of Nanri Ourthe bu1j themble Secretary knew Baring taken an youve intend a educational questions what a storm of Diacou Asiaa would be created by even one clause in the Bui and As the government had abandoned ail intention of giving practical effect to a principle very dearth Bern. Bers of this Home the principle of free education it seemed a though the government were under the impression that free education Ronld Only be carried into practical effect in connection with the estate duties the question was one that could not be disposed of in a Short time. In the interests of the Over Nyunt themselves and of the educational system itself be thought it highly undesirable on the eve of an election that a principle upon which the Public mind was so agitated from a sectarian Point of vie w abeam be introduced. At the present time there was a wide scope for difference of opinion of the matter and there were the questions of payment by result of fees and their Mode of collection and a thousand Aad one other matters upon which the Public mind had been sex erched for a Tang time. Then there was another question of vat alluded to Bible Reading in state schools. Start that topic on the floor of the Howe Aad they afforded enough matter for discussion for months instead of a week. It Wab a farce to discus the question in Tien of the discos Eion that must take place in the Leiala Tulve Council. The legislative Council would demand that time Debould be Given for consideration he ufred the Prenti to Bay the Bui would be with drawn. Or. Giles thought the sooner they dealt with the question the better. He was willing to sit Here for another two months to finish this debate because their constituents expected them to do so. He congratulated the government on bringing in the Bui even at this a the Hoar. If the late government had brought this Bill in they would probably have been in office now. Laughter be know s majority of to Bouse was in favor of an alteration in oar education Eyetee. He denied that oar present education system had worked Well Oboh and the same thing was Felt in the other colonies we were in a Small degree educating the body Bat still less were we educating the higher capacities. People who were atheists were bringing up their Chil Dren in absolute atheism. Under the present system if a teacher waa an atheist the children were bound to be saturated by his sentiments. It was utterly in Poselle for a teacher to keep from the boys the knowledge that he did cot believe in the supreme being. If they educated children without religion they would be at War with All religions. Nonsense he had thought Over the question for hours and hours. Or. Kingston and cot Oon lured the Public system waa ignoring the higher morale. Or. Johnson no it Wae All very Well to say that we could educate children without interfering with religion at All but we must either educate them religiously or not at All. Or. Johnson what religion would you educate them in ? he would leave the people to educate their children As they liked. If an atheist wished to educate his children in atheism let him do it Bat he or. Giles did not believe in being forced to pay towards their education. He did not believe in Public schools and he sent his children to private schools. He did not suppose there was a poorer Man in the House and yet he was contributing to the education of the children of Rich men in South Australia and at the same time had to pay for the education of his own children at religious schools where he had to pay More. Be knew some members thought that the children could be taught religion at the sunday Schoob but that was not so and Many would let no religion at All unless they got it in stale schools. The work at our govern ment schools waa too Bard the pressure was too great and the whole time of the children waa taken up in the preparation of their lessons. He would like to see teaching in pastoral pursuits farming ploughing and the keeping of accounts. The body waa neglected in order to educate the mind. Rubbish the South australian Eyetee of Educa Tion was for the future evil of the country. His boys were taught at Prince Alfred s College. By. Playford they get no religion there no religion Why Only the other Day his boy was rinsing a hymn that he Learned there to a very Nice tune and with ? lot of moral teaching in it. Load laughter Ana to Hon. Member did be see you coming ? he had much pleasure in supporting the Bill laughter Lar. Johnson heartily congratulate a the govern. Merit on their adroitness in introducing the Bill at the eleventh hour and so keeping the word of pro mite to the ear and breaking it to the heart. In a theatrical performance they usually be an with a farce but in this Case parliament was ending with one. He would not give the government credit for any earnestness in introducing this measure. I. Ward ? you introduced it last year ? and or. Horn Yon carried it about in your Black bag laughter he web prepared to move the second Reading of the Bill but the time did not come As the late government recognised that there was not sufficient time to dices the matter. The action of the government was very much like that of the Sundowner who went about asking for work but praying All the time teat he might net find it. The govern ment were perfectly Safe in moving the motion they had As they knew they had no Chance of Intro nine the �111. With regard to what 3sr. Giles had said one the pc Wab certain and that was that one of his objects was to break Down the present so of Public Edu cation altogether. His was that he should not be taxed to keep up a system of education that he did cot approve of but he was not quite willing that people should be taxed to pay for their children to be taught Home doxy. So far As the present system waa concerned he thought Home of details might be amended but it would be an id Otlo thing to alter its principles. The system provided for the care of the mind and the Bedy. He noticed in that Day s paper that the highest roman Catholic ecclesiastic in the colonies Cardinal Moran had apparently Given up his opposition to the present system and head fitted that it would be injudicious to break Down the present system unless the catholics could get exactly what they wasted. But the fact was that they could not agree to any by of education which would leave it open for Ody Jetem of religion to be taught. Or. Gile9 had argued that the Standard should be reduced to use. Lotveit stage but be would Point out that the boys and girls of to Day would be the men and women of the future and would take of the work of guiding the destinies of the country and therefore the character of the education Given to them was not one Whit too High. Before he had had an Opportunity of investigating the question he was opinion that the Standard was too High but he took the present Opportunity of recanting that opinion. The present system bad rot Only raised the Standard in the Public Echo be but in the private schools As Well. No doubt or. Giles and those who thought with him wished to break Down the existing system and to establish denominational education but the country was totally against that . Or Cheek thought the Bill ought to have been introduced months ago and it was astonishing Ftnat it should be brought Forward at the eleventh hour and _ unlet8gu�scientteason could be adduced be would vote egad not the motion. Why this question would occupy a month s disc Raon. He would not enter into the subject of i tee education or subsidising privates Boole. He was sure that if there were no other questions to disease they would not finish debating the education question in three months. The matter should be remitted to the electors for their consideration Anu ? then the next parliament would be Able to Deal wife it. Ctn Leeb the government would Advance sufficient reasons to the contrary he would oppose the motion. Ijar. Cohen would not discuss the provisions of the Bill proposed to be introduced and while he regretted that this guest Lon had been brought fori Rard so late la the Keetion he intended to support this govern ment. He believed a similar measure had been in the lockers of previous governments inc a period of 10 years and therefore it was High time that the whole matter was thrashed oat. He woe astonished at the opposition shown by or. Johnson to the motion because or. Johnson wbb the minister who had charge of a similar Bill last session and he bad prepared an elaborate speech on the eur beet. Or Johnson that is not known she question was of such importance that the Bouee should Endeavor to pass the Bill into Lav. It wbb Eaid that even if they passed the Bill it would go into what bad been termed the Slaughter House but he thought they should do their Doty and not return to their constituents without toying to give effect to their opinions on matter of each vital interest. Or. Jtj neb did not suppose the government imagined for a moment that the Bill would become Law this session Fiill he thought they should have its provisions before them in a Concrete form. It. Kingston it is identically the same a the Bui of Laet year he was satisfied the Bill could not become Law this session but he old not see Why it should not be introduced. Or. Ward very much regretted that at this period of the session when the government had decided to introduce Telb b3i that any member should seek to Burk a discussion upon its provisions. An Hon. Member Wai until the second Reading How did they know that it would reach second Reading 2 he could net join in the government in introducing this Bill today on the contrary be blamed them very much indeed for not introducing it at an Early stage of the session. This was no new question. The Bill was. The result of the report of a Boyal Cammi Staa. That commission was presided Over by the Hon. John Colton and every government that had. Been in office since had Given an Assurance that they would introduce this Bill. Sir e t. Smith certainly not not the Bray government the Pla Foid government actually did introduce the Bill but for Home reason or another the second Reading was never moved and now tins Bill had Only been Intro danced within a few Daye of the Termina Tion of the session. The government had made no practical attempt to redeem the Promise they had Given to the House. It was True that the govern ment proposed to incorporate another question that of free education in the measure and that they sail that that proposal depended on the passing of the estate unties Bui but could not the government have taken a decision on that Bill weeks and weeks ego. Was it any excuse for the government to say that it was. Because they did not know the Fate that wbb to overtake the estate duties Bill hut they bad.
