The Courier (Mount Barker)

The Courier was founded as The Mount Barker Courier and Onkaparinga and Gumeracha Advertiser on 1 October 1880, price 3d. Charles M. R. Dumas was sole proprietor, and its offices were on Gawler Street, Mount Barker. Publication continued every Friday morning. Dumas, who was for four years Member for Mount Barker, died on 19 February 1935, and his family kept it running until May 1938, when it was taken over by T. H. Monger, previously owner of the Tasmanian King Island News. In 1909 Dumas opened a printery in Murray Bridge, and started a newspaper there, the River Murray Advocate, but by the start of 1911 the Advocate existed only as a single page supplement in the Courier.
