CONSERVATISM [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 3 January 1888

CONSERVATISM. Small, communities like this with which we have cast our lot are generally very conserva- tive. The watchword "order" has a more apathetic signification than is generally at-   tached to it. Order in the sense of stagnation is an unhealthy sign of social life, but that allied to progress is a right stamp of feeling that ought to animate us. People living to gether for a long time, in a town of small population are apt to get into a hum-drum groove, out of which it requires something startling to rouse them. They are apt also to resent interference in any 'public matter if suggested by an outsider, and thought not deficient in native politeness are inclined to regard every new comer with suspicion, and without being aware or intending it, to put difficulties in the way of those whose purpose is honest and straightforward, but whose business               &nbsp...

KANGAROO SKINS [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 3 January 1888

KANGAROO SKINS. Kangaroo skins now being in such de- mamd it will not be out of place to give directions as to their preparation for the market, more . especially as the best well stretched skins always realise the best prices. In the first place take the skin just below the   shoulders, where it is usually very narrow, and peg out to its utmost extent. Then take a straight line on the top, shoulder to shoulder, removing the head and the shanks. .Next stretch the hind legs downwards, peg up both sides and afterwards the bottom, thus presenting a surface nearly square shaped   Skins should be dried in the shade, and to this particular attention should be paid, as many skins have been' rendered quite worth less through over haste in drying and expos ing to the sun.

BUNBURY [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 3 January 1888

BUNBURY   The town of Bunbury is situated on a peninsula, culminating in Point Casuarina, running north, bounded   on the west by the Indian Ocean, and on the east by Koombana Bay, and Leschenault Estuary. The Bay is formed into a secure harbour, sheltered from all winds, except northerly, (which are rare), by a reef running out in a north-easterly di-   rection. Parallel to the reef is a substantial jarrah jetty 1963½ feet long, to which is now being added an extension of 142 feet, in the same direction, north east; with a head running due north of 134 feet long and 24½ feet wide; making a total length of 2239½ feet, at the end of which there will be 20 feet of water at low tide. The entrance to the estuary lies at the south of the Bay, but is continually shifting, as the ocean tides and the fresh water from the rivers, Preston and Collie, silt the sand, forming a bar and spit of varying depth and length. The Estuary itself runs for 13 miles i...

ARRIVAL OF THE REWA   The barque Rewa, with the Bunbury-Black- wood Railway rolling stock, arrived in Koom- bana Bay at 10 a.m. on December 24th. Captain F. H. Hurburgh, Master of the vessel, reports that he left Gravesend on September 7th, and took his departure from the Lizard on the 11th. On the 24th picked up the north east trades, which were moderate, till October 2nd, when he lost them off St. An- tonio, in the Cape de Verde Islands. From thence he had light southerly winds and much   showery weather till taking the south east trades on October 24th in latitude 20. 30 north. The passage to the equator was pro tracted to the extent of 50 days, owing to the light and contrary winds experienced in get ting abreast of the Cape de Verdes. The   Equator was crossed on October 27th in 21.   50 West longitude. The south east trades were carried with moderate winds and fine clear weather to 13. 20 south latitude on November 3rd when l...

The Advertiser. Nihil sine Labore. JANUARY 3rd, 1888. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 3 January 1888

Nihil sine Lahore. JANUARY 3rd 1888 The venture to which we commit ourselves to-day is an important one   in the annals of the district we in tend to represent. The progress of any town is marked by strides, more or less rapid and firm. Each com mencement of a public undertaking, such for instance, as the building of a   jetty, the institution of a municipality or the beginning of railway works, is one of these strides. Every one of the undertakings enumerated is a step of progress, but one of the greatest; indications of advancement is the publication of a newspaper to be spe cially devoted to the interests of a district or group of districts. The southwestern portion of the colony,   popularly called the "Southern Dis   tricts," has been progressing steadily for years, and the time has now ar rived when, it is necessary that it   should be represented by a local journal. The largest town of the Southern Districts, be...

BUN BURY-BLACKWOOD RAILWAY LINE TO BE SHUT UP. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 10 January 1888

BUNBURY-BLACKWOOD RAIL-     WAY LINE TO BE SHUT UP. Last night the Resident Engineer received a telegram from the Direct- or of Public Works stating that the Government did not intend to put the rolling stock for this line together for the present, but to store it in the sheds. This news is very vexatious as the people of the district fully ex- pected to see the line utilised, at least by a train once a week. Some steps should be taken to induce the Government to alter their decision, and a public meeting should be imme- diately called to consider the matter. It would not be surprising after this if the Government were to call for tenders to pull up the Bunbury Blackwood Railway Line and shift it elsewhere. At any rate the ratepay- ers should at once requisition the Mayor for a public meeting. This intelligence was only made known this forenoon.

THE BUNBURY-BLACKWOOD RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 10 January 1888

THE BUNBURY-BLACKWOOD RAILWAY. The first section of the Bunbury-   Blackwood Railway Line now being completed and the rolling stock now in the station yard, a short description of it will not be out of place at the present time. The line was surveyed in the latter part of 1886 under Mr. James Gardiner. A. M. I. C. E. (Lon- don,) Resident Engineer of the South- ern Districts.. The contract was let in April last to Mr. Edward Keane for £19,116 for the work of construc- tion for 15½ miles, the Government pro- viding the rails. Work was com- menced almost immediately, and car- ried on with that energy and despatch, for which the contractor is famed. Starting from the jetty, where there is a siding into the Goods Shed, the line curves from the foot of the Light- house hill into Wittenoom Street, run- ning due south, branching off in a more easterly direction at the Post Office, and leaving the town boundary close to the Vasse Road at Hastie's Corner. For the first 9 miles th...

OUR CITY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 10 January 1888

OUR CITY LETTER. During the past week there has been both in Perth and Fremantle more holiday making than business, and the amusement provided for pleasure seekers has been equal to the occasion. On Boxing day the principal feature of enjoyment was the Railway Em- ployees annual picnic at Bullen's Half-way Hotel, where some 3,000 to 4,000 people congregated together to witness the sports and Camel races. The latter being the new feature of colonial sport.   On the Saturday and Monday fol- lowing came the Perth Races, which passed off very successfully, and of which you will have had full particu- lars before this. Last Wednesday was the opening day of the Newcastle Railway by his Excellency the Governor, accompani- ed by a large number of visitors. On Saturday last the third day of the races came off when Agitation carried the palm for the hurdles, First King   being second. The Losers' Handicap and a Hurry Scurry finished the most successful meeting the Tu...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. BRITISH & FOREIGN LONDON, January 2 [Newspaper Article] — Southern Advertiser — 10 January 1888

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. BRITISH & FOREIGN London, January 2. M. Etienne has expressed the opin- ion that the conclusion arrived at between England and France in regard to the New Hebrides, is the only logical settlement of the difficulty. He thinks the plan recommended of a   joint Government of the islands is   workable, and the determination to maintain the treaty previously enter- ed into by England and France a wise one, and should be revived. A gunpowder explosion, attended by terrible loss of life, has occurred at Amoy in China. The powder magazine was blown up and a part of the town destroyed. A hundred people were killed.   The jubilee of the Pope has been   celebrated at Rome. No members of any of the reigning houses of Europe were present. The Ministerial crisis in Servia, which caused the resignation of M. Rustics, who took office last June, is at an end. M. Gruetch, radical, having succeeded in forming a Cabinet accep...
