INTER-COLONIAL. THE KELLY GANG. NED KELLY CAUGHT ALIVE BUT WOUNDED. THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE GANG BURNED TO DEATH. MELBOURNE, June 23. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 June 1880
INTER-COLONIAL. THE KELLY GANG. NED KELLY CAUGHT ALIVE BUT WOUNDED. THE OTHER MEMBERS OP THE GANG BURNED TO DEATH. MELBOURNE, June 23. The Kelly gang of bushrangers, who have so long evaded capture, and for whom a reward of £8,000 was offered by the Governments of New South Wales and Victoria, were surrounded last night by the police, at Jones's Hotel, Glenrowan (Victoria). Ned Kelly, the leader of the gang, was wounded and captured alive. They set fire to the hotel, which was burnt to the ground, and Dan Kelly and Hart perished in the flames. Their charred remains were found among the ashes, clad in armour. The body of their other comrade (Byrne) was also found, consumed by the fire.
COUNTRY LETTERS. (Front our own correspondents.) ALBANY, June 23rd. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 June 1880
COUNTRY LETTERS. (Front our own correspondents.) ALBANY, June 23rd. Meteorological indications lead us to the belief that our old-fashioned winters are return- ing, for we have had a continuation of very wet and extremely cold weather here lately. Du- ring some few years past, our winters have been far more moderate than formerly, hut the tem- peratura this season is suggestive of the old country. I notice that you had a grand Volunteer Re- view on the 27th May, in the capital, in honor of Her Majesty's Birthday. So had we-but of course on a smaller scale. The Albany Bine Volunteers assembled on that day, fired a. fen de joie, gave a Eoyal salute, and indulged in throe cheers for our Sovereign Lady the Queen. The Government Eesident and all other public officials within hail were, as in duty bound, present. Afterwards, Captain W. Finlay put the Volunteers through various evolutions, which they are said to have performed very creditably. This is the only excitement we have had lately...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. ViaiLAXs ET AUDAX PERTäTFRjDAl7j^UL:F2, 1880. THEIMPEISÁTG^ i COLONIAL AFFAIRS. Ora readers will see in our column devot- ed to telegraphic intelligence that the Im- perial Government have been obliged^ to abandon the attempt at any immediate federation of the South African provinces. The difficulties which have been experienc- ed in endeavoring to negocíate this desir- able consolidation of interests, form the subject of articles on colonial policy in several late numbers ,of Liberal journals. And we are glad to see that one and all, abandoning that attitude of indifference in regard to the colonial empire of Great Britain, with which the Liberal party has with more or less justice been reproached, they now vie with one anothor in extolling the value of the country's foreign possess- ions, and declaim against the iniquity of those who suggest that Liberals are care- less of the stability of that slender tie which still binds the great self-governing colonies to...

MR. VENN, M.L.C. AT BUNBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880
MB. VENN, M.L.C. AT BUNBURY. It having l»ecn advertised that Mr. Venn would address his constituents in the Mechanics Hall on Saturday last, at 2 o'clock, a numerous audience assembled. Mr. Hay ward, being voted to the chair, briefly introduced Mr. Venn to the meeting, ex- pressing the pleasure which he anticipated would be derived by the electors from hearing the lion, member's address. Mr. VENN, in rising, expressed his unqualified astonishment at hearing that he was expected to deliver an address. He hod ventured to presume that the requisitionists' aims were to apprize him of their local wants, and to advise him thereon, and he would be most happy to give tbem his attention; but he certainly did not intend to address them, to expose his hand. Any man who did so would be a fool. Nor did he intend^to intimate his intentions. After Council, however, he would be prepared to render an account of his stewardship, but at pre- sent he would confine himself to answering any questions pro...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondente.) BUNBURY, 28th June, 1880. We have had some boisterous weather lately, accompanied with torrents of rain, occasionally interspersed with hail ; but tho last few days there has been magnificent sunshine. During the inclement weather, the Variety Troupe paid us a visit, and judging from their extended stay the visit appeared to pay them. They gave five performances in four days, and their.display of talent was, as usual with all itinerant purvey» ors of the sensational, highly appreciated. A considerable acquisition to the revenue has accrued by the conviction of several timber hewers, and the confiscation of timber and in- fliction of penalties for cutting timber without a license. In one particular instance the case seems to be one deserving commisseration, the offender, an aged man named Mark Brown, being employ- ed by a contractor as a sum per load (somewhat less than the usual rate), on the understanding that the reduced price would ...
"LICTOR" 'LICKED.' THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880
"LIC TOB" 'LICKED.' THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,-In Wednesday's paper, an infatuated writer under the norn de plume of "Lictor," in his fifth paragraph, takes the trouble to parade, for the édification and admiration of a benighted public, and the benefit and satisfaction of Mr. Thsmas (of course " Lictor" is not Mr. Thomas hardly knows him), certain statements calculated to awe all but very big men, as to Mr. Thomas's abilities and experience in many foreign lands. Nothing, however, is said about the Commissioner's well-known command of other languages, besides pure and undetiled English. Sir, this is the secoud time we have been in- formed of Mr. Thomas's wonderful abilities, through the columns of the press. I have no doubt he is a good man, when out of bad company ; but if he is such a walking wonder of engineering skill, etc., etc., as "Lictor" would have us join him in believing, why should he have left a colony where good men can always get good salaries (professio...
MR. BURT IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880
MR. BURT IN REPLY. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. . SIR,-My attention has been drawn to a communication which appeared in the columns of the Inquirer yesterday, under the signature of " Lictor." " Lictor " states that some remarks (relative to the Eastern Railway) which I made at a recent public meeting in Guildford, were so startling that he made it his duty to inter- view the Hon. the Commissioner of Railways in order to ascertain whether there were any reasonable grounds for my statements, and that he (*' Lictor") is nowjiappy-to inform the read- ers of the Inquirer that not one of them has the slightest foundation in fact. Now, let us see what the statements I made actually were. Firstly-that extra culverts had to be made, and were now being mide on the line through the swamp gardens at the hack of Perth, thus involving additional expense. Secondly-that it had been pointed out, that the railway embankment at Fremantle would probably be washed away by winter floods, and th...
MR. HIGMAN'S CHARGES AGAINST THE ROADS BOARDS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. Swan, June 19, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880
MR. HIGMAN'S CHARGES AGAINST THE ROADS BOARDS. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. Swan, June 19, 1880. DEAR SIR,-In reply to your circular drawing attention to the sweeping statements made by Mr. Higman in your issue of the loth, concerning the supposed misconduct of the Roads Boards, I will give you my experience. Judging other Boards by our own, and acting according to my own feelings in the matter, I should consider the accusations made against the Boards by the above-named gentleman too absurd to be worthy of notice, and should offer no explanation unless required to do so by His Excellency the Governor ; but as you seem to think differently, I will endeavour to meet your wishes. . This is the sixth year that I have been a member of the Swau Roads Board, and for the greater part of the time I have had the honor of occupying the chair. I have no recollection of any money ever haviug been paid for supervision. We pay Mr. Knight (who is not a member of the Board) ¿320 per annum ...
SANITARY CONDITION OF THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880
SANITARY CONDITION OF THE CITY. Wx are glad to see that the sanatory, or rather insanatory, condition of the city is receiving a certain amount of attention from the City Council. That very much more is required to ensure the preservation of the public health than the present wholly inadequate arrange- ments, there can he no doubt. At the same time, unless the citizens are prepared to submit to extra taxation, it it, we imagine, but little that the City Council can do. For the estab- lishment of a really satisfactory condition of things, money, and no inconsiderable amount of it, is absolutely required. Mr. Councillor STONB was.right when he stated that the mere cementing of cess-pits can by no means effect all that is necessary. The coating of cement very frequently cracks, in which case soakage of course continues. But it is not only soakage from cesspits that is to be dreaded, nor even the intolerable effluvium from possibly water- tight receptacles, of which several councillors ...
THE ROADS BOARDS IN REPLY TO MR. HIGMAN'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880
THE ROADS BOARDS IN REPLY TO MR. HIGMAN'S REPORT. I>* consequence of the very damaging state- ments lately made in regard to the local bodies to which the management of our roads hare been hitherto entrusted, more especially as to the extravagance of their expenditure for supervision, we have thought it advisable to seek for information bearing upon this subject from the audited accounts of the several Boards,-information which, ia reply to a circular we sent out, baa been furnished us with ready courtesy. When written in official form, we shall pub- lish these replies as they come in. The result, we think, will show that the state- ment of the SUPEBINIXKMST OF ROADS was'rather a rash one. Every Board, no doubt, ia not equally careful, or equally efficient ; but, on tbewhole,*wefeelconfldent it will be found that the Boards have worked with anxious regard to economy, have expended the moneys entrusted to them in a useful and workmanlike manner, and deserved well of the colony. To...
