FREMANTLE TOWN TRUST. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 April 1868
FREMANTLE TOWN TRUST.. To the Editor of The Herald. ' SIR, Allow me a .small space in your paper to make.a few remarks on the proposed plan to alter the present mode of assessing the Owners of Town Allotments to one assimilating it to the Highway rate in England, namely a rate assessed according to the annual value of each Lot. Now Sir in the first place if the initiators of the movement had referred to the Act of Council under which the Town Tru,:t.acts, they would have seen that the Trustees of the Town have not now the powers to' levy such a rate as is proposed-the rate may be made, but, to be of any practical use, there must be powers to enfore it, and such powers can only be given by. an Act of Council. The Act of Council under which the Trust acts only gives such powers if the assessment is made in a certain manner, and would not enable the Chairman or Collector to adopt legal measures for enforcing the rate if made according to the proposed new plan;- therefore if the Meeting...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, The Ratepayers of Fremantle assemble? on Wednesday last for the determination of Town assessment and the general transaction of busi ness. Mr. Newman as Chairman explained his in tention of affixing assessment according to the valuation of property. Mr. L. Samson supported the suggestion and said, " That the present rate of indiscrim inate taxation was opposed to that justice which ought to be done to the humbler class of Ratepayers and altho' he himself would be a loser by the change, still, as it was only fair he would support it."

LABOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
LABOR. The maiket is very bare.of all kinds of labor. It is almost impossible to obtain a servant of any discription. We understand Messrs Solomon and Nephews, who have recent'y opened business in this town, intend introducing a few good tradesinen from the other colonies. They are much needed, as the dissolute habits of the tradesmed. in the town, are a source of great an noyance to those who are compelled to. employ them.
MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
MABRKETS. FLOUr.-The market seems veryunsettled and prices vary. The news by the last mail has caused an advance of £2 per ton, and holders are still unwilling to make large sales anticipating a still greater advance. Colonial may be quoted at £16 to 17 a ton.

THE crowded condition of our columns last week, obliged usto omit all reference to the very interesting Meeting, held at Champion Bay on the 26th ultimo. The subjects discussed are far too im portant to be allowed to pass without some notice, and though rather late, we would wish to make an observation or two on some of the questions considered at the Meeting. Four resolutions were brought forward, one for urging on the Government: the necessity of-doing something to stop the drifting of the sand, which threatens to destroy the port and town; the next re commendingthe construction ofa macada mized road from Champion Bay to the Greenough Flats-another setting forth the want of increased Jetty accommoda tion, and the. last proposing the forma tion of a Railway from 'the Champion Bay Jetty, to the town of Northampton and on to the Geraldine mines.
