During the past year sooth Australia has revived somewhat commercially. It has during that period been recover ing from & three years depression. The Progress made has not been of a startling nature but Gratifying not withstanding. Looking at the state of affairs generally we Are led to take a hopeful View of the future. It is not by looking to the government nor to the doings of parliament that the Prospect brightens. Of course the legislature can do much in the Way of furthering the interests of the Community but it cannot do All. In the past the Public made a mistake in run Ning to the government of the Day for every Little thing that was supposed would Benefit some particular locality. Money has in that Way been spent in judiciously and the state impoverished proportionately. We Only wish that we could correctly state that things in that respect had undergone a Radical change. Such however is not the Case though there Are fortunately indications of a breaking away from the apron strings of a paternal govern ment on the part of some sections of the Community. It is desirable that there should be greater self Reliance such As would induce people to do their full 6hare of necessary work. Electors who Appeal to the state to do what they should do themselves Overlook the fact that they have done much to Bur Den the Colony with a heavy tax. The enthusiastic advocates of working men s blocks have in a sense taken the place 01 those who formerly craved for excessive help from those in authority. We Are in favor of working men s blocks though we cannot go the length of those who make a fad of that system. The Hon. W. Copley purposes visiting new zealand while parliament is in recess with the View of obtaining in formation regarding the bloc holders system there. But it seems to us sheer Tolly to go on such a Mission. The conditions of climate Between new zealand and South Australia Are so diversified that what might answer in the former would be unsuitable to the latter. In new zealand with its Ever Green verdure Cool temperature and copious rainfall facilities Are afforded the holders of Small blocks which Are not to be found Here. Surely practical Farmers and fruit and vegetable growers of thirty or forty years experience in South Australia know better How much land a Blooker in this Colony should have to enable him to gain & livelihood on it for himself and family than can be gleaned by the commissioner of grown lands in new zealand. We May be told that the commissioners is to ascertain the amount of help the government there moves Small holders to enable them to get a Start. But Here again the state must be guided by local circumstances. In some parts of this Colony Block holders who have a practical knowledge of cultivating the land and Are industrious could get along without any state coddling while in other localities they could not eke out a living though the land was Given them and fruit and other Trees to Boot. What is wanted to give South Australia a substantial Start in the right direction is for those who have land to put it to its Best use and thus practically show the Public what it can produce. That is the Point which we wish to get at and All that is Neces sary is for the Farmers and other land holders to put their shoulders to the wheel. Now we Are very desirous that this District should be to the fore in that matter. If the settlers would thus begin the year in a systematic and practical Way Progress might be made during the next twelve months of a very satisfactory character. But though much can be accomplished by individual Effort there must at the same time be Hearty co operation. We Are therefore desirous that the initial Steps that were taken some time ago in this District on co operative lines but which fell through should again receive attention. It will of course be remembered that the members for this District took the initiative in calling a Public meeting with the View of establishing local industries. There was a Good attendance and considerable enthusiasm was manifested which augured a satisfactory Start. But like the old Prophet s Gourd what promised to be of great service the one Day perished the next. Now we Are Hope Ful that the old interest May again take Possession of the people and in the future Beoo Nae less fitful than in the past. An Effort at least should be made and we feel assured that our members will not stand aloof in the matter. We cannot expect anything to be done while the Farmers Are Busy with the Harvest but As soon As it is Over a Public meeting should be convened. Co operative Dairying seemed to be the favorite theme when local industries were discussed at the meeting already alluded to. And surely the subject in not to be abandoned As if it were a something that would have a tendency to impoverish them. It is our impression that Frere a Branch Bureau formed in this town and the Farmers fruit and vegetable growers and others interested in the fostering of industries to join it an Advance would be made in cultivation in the District. Farmers Are disheartened on account of the prevalence of red rust and the mischief which is being done by locusts. Market gardeners have also a H.S. of pests with which they have to keep up a constant warfare. Were these producers members of a local Bureau they might do much in the Way of encouraging each other to successfully combat the various pests. Knowledge however would be gained and information imparted that might prove highly beneficial for the District. During parliamentary recess our Mem Bers might have a Little time to devote to the furtherance of this object. Our District is capable of producing cereals Root crops fruit6, and vegetables of al most every variety. What is wanted is United Effort skill and Energy. These elements necessary to Success Are lying latent in. The people and what is needed is Tor bring them into action. Some time ago we called attention to general Booth s colonisation scheme and pointed out How undesirable it would be to have a criminal Colony in Australasia. It is Only right that As a people we should sympathise with and give what financial help we can to the lapsed masses in the crowded Cen lies of great Britain. But it is quite another thing to submit to the very scum of society socially and morally being sent out Hore to Settle on the land in the Hope of building up an Industrial Colony. Theoretically the scheme May appear Feas Ible to Rai Taij but we venture to predict that practice i a it would prove a huge failure. It is hardly to be expected that a class of people who have been reared in the Gutter in Large cities who Hare not been trained to habits of Industry who know to thing about the cum i jul of Ilia soil and whose moral faculties have Tiev a been whetted in the right direction would prove desirable colonists. It takes those who have been accustomed to Rural avocation who have rom their infancy been trained to habits of Thrift and self Reliance to make anything like head Way in the australian colonies. And were the general s colonisation scheme matured and hundreds of the waifs sent out Here they would simply be a Burden just an increase of so Many hundreds of our pauper population. We admit that the distress that exists among the lower class in the Large centres of population at Home is great and it Speaks Well for the philanthropy of those who Are contributing to the scheme for the amelioration of the distressed but it will be Well to see that the thing could be practically and advantageously carried out. It is True that no attempt May be made to found a Colony of the criminal class in Australasia but it has been mentioned by the general in his pro gramme As a Field suitable for Bis purpose. The victorian government is becoming apprehensive on the subject and has communicated with the Premier of this Colony As also with the other colonies in order that timely action May be taken to prevent the wholesale introduction of an undesirable class of people. The Premier of Victoria says after referring to the general s scheme i can hardly suppose that it will be at tempted to transport the emigrants in ques Tion to the advanced colonies of Australia and should be prepared to take effectual measures to frustrate Auch a proceeding in relation to Victioria. But i feel strongly also that it is undesirable that any part of Australia should be made the scene of settlement for such a miscellaneous collection of people we observe that sir Henry Parkes does not think it needful to take any action in the matter As he con eiders it very unlikely that any attempt would be made to Send the emigrants to Australia. But it is on statesmanlike to re main passive till arrangements Are made and then to protest. The better method is to make known the feeling of australians on the subject that the general from the first May turn his attention elsewhere. The general in his Book Speaks of South Africa Canada Australia end British Columbia As Likely Fields for the establishment of col onies. There is room in Africa for them and in Many respects that seems the most desirable place for the emigrants. Rain Fau.

Harvesting operations Are nearly at a close and the Farmers Are Busy carting in the fruits of their labor. Christmas Day passed off quietly Here. The port Broughton dramatic Clab played to a crowded House in the evening. Messes. Robinson and Purling did their parts admirably and theirs were the most difficult. The new Post office is finished and is quite an addition to the town. Burra january 1. Holiday keeping has been the principal thing indulged in during the past few Days. The Christmas holidays passed of Well and Hare been thoroughly enjoyed. On Christmas eve As usual crowds were pro menacing the streets and footpaths. The hops were Well patronised and a roaring Trade was done till very late hours. The Burra band in accordance with their usual custom rendered some excellent music during the evening in front of the main business places. A very Large crowd gathered to listen to the band and to enjoy the Sweet strains of music. On Christmas Day b very interesting service was held in the Wesley an Church. Previous to the service the members of the various Friendly societies attended at the Institute and having formed a procession marched to the Wesleyan Church headed by the band. It was a very pretty eight As All the members appeared in regalia and each society having different colors added to the scene. The Rev. Hunter conducted the service and afterwards a collection was taken up for the Burra Hospital amounting to about �8. The primitive Msty odits held their usual sunday school anniversary which took place on sunday december 28. The Rev. R. J. Daddow conducting the morning and evening services and Rev. W. Hunter afternoon services. The Tea and Public meetings took place on Christmas Day and were Well attended. Boxing Day was a great Day Here the at traction being the United Friendly societies sports on the Burra Oval. A very Large crowd assembled to witness the sports which were considered the Best Ever held Here. In the Sheffield and bicycle handicaps the excitement was very great. A concert was held in the evening at the Institute Hall which was crowded the takings being Over �21. During the evening the prizes were handed Over to the successful competitors. After the concert a Ball took place and dancing was kept up until Day break. Everything passed off Well and nothing occurred of a very serious nature during the Christmas holidays. A concert was Given in the Institute Hall on december 31, by the Saddleworth cricketers. A very select number were present being about 30, to the utter Dis gust of the performers. The entertainment consisted chiefly of the Bristy minstrel fare which generally draws but on this occasion it was a failure. No doubt the at Tendance would have been fair had the concert been held on new year s evening. I notice that our local paper the Burra record is Only to be issued weekly instead of twice As previously. A Cricket match was played on the Burra Oval to Day Between the Burra and Saddle Worth Cricket clubs and resulted in a draw min Taro. January 3.

I new year s Day was Beautiful for out \ door pleasure and Over 1,000 people gathered 00 thursday last on the Stanley j Flat racecourse to witness a Day s running provided by the Clare sports committee. The crowd was most orderly but some of the spectators would persist in getting on the track while the races were being con tested. The police were there but they would not keep the delinquents Back having no instructions to do so from their Superior officer. Such being the Case the services of the gentlemen in Blue were not required. Or. Stock of the Globe hotel did a Good business with the publican s Booth while or. Clark of water Vale provided the hungry with first class edibles. The races were very Good and the entries %4 quite satisfactory and the committee should congratulate itself upon a credit j balance after the liabilities have been Dis f. Charged. There were eight races on the programme the first being the Handicap hurdles which was won by cup bearer i who jumped Well and Atao did Gilbert and Spieler. Little Dot came Down at one of j the hurdles and threw her rider who How Ever was not much Hurt. The new year Handicap was a soft thing for Yule. Ten sported milk for the Maidens which was a close thing Between lightning and Catt. H coming up the straight Cadet looked like winning easily. Stirling gained the judge s verdict in the Pony race while Black Prince soon had his Field in trouble in the Trot and got Home com portably a horse under the unique Cognomen of four Penee Halfpenny coming a bad second.
