The Mayor o'fi Thebarton (Mr. A. A.

Tot hill, who has managed the Koonoivla pro- - perty, for some ? years, intends to ,re# finquish the position in order to reside iu India, has been received with regret, and by none more than the working men of the locality (writes an Auburn correspon dent). Old residents remember when, about 20 years ago, under Mr. Tothill'* management, the Koqnowla farm land was rapidly transformed into a hive of indiis- - try, over 30 men having been employed in laying the , foundations of one of the best properties devoted to the cultivation of vines and fruit trees in the district. This' was at a time when a revival of prosperity ? was sadly needed in, the vicinity, and before the advent of the manures which Bubhe nuently altered the whole condition of af fairs in the forming community. Th« future management of the estate, which i- owned by Mr. H. Dutton, of Anlaby, hai been a matter of speculation. It is now announced that Messrs. J. Robinson, E, O. Wishart, J. E. and W. Millard, who have been employed on the place during periods varying from 12 to 20 years, have decided to take over the property, and manage it on the share system. This is strong testimony to the confidence reposed in the men by the owner. They have tha iropd wishes of the residents in their enter, prise, who congratulate them on thtdiu pluck. i
