IN COMPANY WITH A CAPE FARMER. SOMETHING ABOUT THE CAPE FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

IN COMPANY WITH A CAPE i FARMtR. SOMETHING ABOUT THE CAPE FARMERS. Mr. P. L. Vau der Byl, a farmer of forty five years' experience, in the Cape Colony, and a representative of the people in that great coiouy of many nationalities, is now - on a visit to Australia, New Zealand, and Tasmania, with a view to learning the agricultural inauners and customs, as well ¿,Jjj as- of the machinery, implements,. and y¡r appliances used by cultivators and others in this purl of the world. It appears from his accouut that the farming population of the Cape Colony are at present iu a " depressed " state, owing to droughts, foreign competi- tion, low prices, numerous diseases amongst their flocks and herds, and a host of little f circumstances which in the aggregate make a very great trouble for the poor i-irmers of that place. Their most promising pasture laudB iu some places, after a very short occupation, begin to develop poisonous qualities of a most fatal nature, and, although the cause has no...

THE DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

THE DAIRY. -mp In reference to thc above subject the Observer nays:-Writing upon dairy subject! is not a tnoet satisfactory work, because uc person engaged in dairy work ever shows his iaterest by making enquiries, by finding fault, or by communicating his experiences. And yet our dairymen have not yet reached the piuuaele of perfection either in making ch«ese and batter, or iu curing butter. We have written upon every conceivable aspect of the dairy interest, besides clippiug articles and items of news upon dairy sub- jects for years past : but, like " thc children in the market plate," wheu we have piped to the dairymen there has been no response. We have net been alono in the desire to see some progress und improvement upou the dairy manufactures of this colony, for the Jioyal Agricultural Society has offered in- ducements, year after year, in tbe shape oi prizes to be competed for at the annual ' Iribows ; but in most cases, until quite re- cently, the whole of the exhibits woul...

The End of Sir A. Stuart's Party. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

The End of Sir A. Stuart's Party. At last the -feeble heirs of the Stuart Ministry in New South . Wales have succumbed to their f ato. Any one, since the late election, knew their fall to be but a matter of time. And "honest Jack Robertson " has been sent for, but wisely commends Sir Henry Parkes,ILC.M.Gr., to His- Excellency, Lord Carririgton's notice. Of course he will accept the duty, and will succeed too, Xor every where there is disorganisation. Of late, no doubt, Sir Henry's popularity has been but a shadow of what it was in days of old. But Time's mantle has fallen over many of his sins; political and personal. AU will desire to give him another trial, though it is ever easier for a politician to gain the confidence of the public than to regaiu it. But Education and the Land are now out of the way; his outbreak on the Soudan expedition is old history; Lord Augustus is on his way to England. If lie walks straight and keeps his temper, Sir Henry may lead the Government of New S...

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1885. TO-DAY we launch au addition to the literary fleet of Western Australia.

IN REPLY TO MR. DEMPSTER. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

IN REPLY TO MR. DEMPSTEK. To THE EDITOB. J .. SIE,-I observe that Mr. W. S. Dempster has taken exception to some of the provisions of the Amended Scab Act. Bot I think it can be shown that the seeming inconsistencies he points to are more apparent than real. It has been apparent that in remote districts in thc North the period of the license under Sect. 10 is scarcely sufficient to enable owners to procure dipping materials and apply them, and it was thought better to leave it unaltered than to provide different periods for different districts. The " position" of the owner who ap- plies for a license in the months of May or June would not be quite so easy as Mr. Dempster seems tb suppose. If the owner signified his intention of dipping at the end of 82 days he would probably be asked by the Inspector why so long a de-. lay. If he answered: You cannot com- pel me to dip sooner and I will not, he must be prepared, to take the consequen- ces. At the end of 112 days he would apply for a...

As might have been expected, the whole matter of providing decent tenements for these workmen and their families has fall- en through, and there being no house ac- commodation in York, Some of these peo- j pie ate huddled together in placeB totally, unfit for habitation at a rental quite dis- proportionate to a working man's earn- ings. , Had these designs been in con- formity with our convenient and less ornate local style, which^vould be quite in keep- ing with our best one-storied and neat- ly verandahed cottages, ere this the whole difficulty would have been met, besides the buildings being an ornament to our town.-Mr. Thos.
