Mr. _, C. Hirsch, of Hawker, has been appointed a member of the Northern Licensing Bench. " Mr. James Cater was the subject of a graceful compliment on Thursday even- ing when old scholars of the Princes-street school gathered at a smoke social at Bishop's Cafe, and presented him with a fine armchair as a memento of past as- sociation and as a token of respect. Prin- ces-street is the first street west of Pul- teney-street, and runs between Angas and. Carrington streets. Mr. Cater opened a school there in a Primitive Methodist
Church, long since demolished-in 1868. For 12 months it was a private educational establishment, and then the Government took it over, retaining Mr. Catcr's services as headmaster. He continued to control the institution until 1878, and the men who met him on Thursday night, were all under his care during that decade. In 1878 the school was closed, and the scholars were drafted to town public schools. Mr. Cater went to. Burra as headmaster and subse- quently guided the destinies of scholars in the East Adelaide and Thebarton public schools. He retired from the Education Department service 3 years ago. Mr. Cater is a natiye of London, was educated at the Barnet Grammar school, and trained for teacher in Sydney. His son, Mr. C. G. B. Cater, has been chief assistant at the Unley State school for many years. The Mayor of Norwood (Mr. G. H. Prosser), who presided over a large audience last night, presenting to Mr. Cater the arm- chair above referred to, delivered an in-
teresting speech full of humorous re- miniscences of school days at Princes-street. As he looked about the city now, and re- membered the state of tile streets at the time when he went to school the thought that struck him most forcibly was that there had been wonderful strides made in municipal work in Adelaide. If the guest of the evening had carried out his duty of character-building in his late schools as he did at Princes-street, he had done a good life's work, and all hoped Mr. Cater would live long to enioy the rest he so well deserved. Mr. R, J. Lavis, in a felicitous speech, paid a tribute to the value of Mr. Caters teaching. Alder- man Pearson (chairman of the committee) mentioned that the conveners of the social were Messrs. J. Couche (acting secretary). F. Taylor, and E. Noon. Many other old scholars spoke, and Mr. Cater made a happy response in acknowledgement of the compliment paid to him. Musical and elocutionary items were contributed.
