LAW INTELLIGENCE. SUPREME COURT—IN EQUITY (Before His Honor the Chief Justice) WEDNESDAY, JULY 7. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 July 1880
SUPREME COURT-IN.E&lt;JUITr. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice) WEDNESDAY, JULY 7. The Supreme Court sat in its equitable juris- diction on Wednesday last. Before proceeding with the cause list, ' His Honor the Chief Justice, said: I want to say a few words before I begin the business of the day. A Judge here does not enjoy the privilege which the Judges do in England, of being able, from time to time, to address the Grand Jury. That is a great loss, I think, because the privilege, where enjoyed, is one under which a Judge is able either to refer to new laws, or to make practical observa- tions as to defects whicli from time to time are made manifest in laws already in existence. My reason for alluding to this matter is this : Two cases were tried before mc at the last sit- ting of this Court in its civil jurisdiction, and in each case the Court made an order in favor of the plaintiff for the payment of the amount claimed. One of these cases was, as I thought at the time, ...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. Vighaîîs et Audax PERTH, FRIDAY, JULY 9, 1880. THE CHAIRMEN OF THE ROADS BOARDS IN REPLY. The report of the Superintendent op Roads, which has elicited from the various Boards upon whose administration he com- ments, such able and vigorous protests, was not-as one or two correspondents have rightly suggested-intended for publica- tion. It was merely a reply to certain accusations of mismanagement made by correspondents in our columns, and ad- dressed by Mr. Higman to the head of his department As we have stated before, this gentleman has been placed in an unfortun- ate position. He was called upon to work under a system which was unworkable, and which the Government have now practically acknowledged to have been such. Conse- quent upon the partial diversion of the Road Loan from what, strictly speaking, was its original purpose, the Roads Board machin- ery, which had been, on the whole, working smoothly and well, was interfered with, new and crude arrangements w...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, July 3. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 July 1880
COUNTRY LETTERS. (from our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, July 3. I have seen the now Customs House, over the building known as the " A " Store. The offices are very capacious, but their approach is over a rough unmade road, and when a N.W. wind is blowing, it will be no easy or pleasant passage from Cliff Street, opposite Flindell's Hotel, to the steps leading to the " Long Room " of the Customs Department, where all the business of receiving the payments on account of duties is done. Upon reaching the landing, the first office you meet with on your right is that sot apart for the Collector of Customs to perform his multifarious duties. This office has the most undignified aspect of any in the whole building. The walls arc of bare rough stone, presenting the appearance of a barn rather than the office of the head of an important de- partment. The furniture comprises a small counter-once, I should say, the property of a marine store dealer,-and a book-rack ; with, I think, two old ...
OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 July 1880
OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. The two other appointments, to seats upon the Central Road Committee, in addition to the one which we notified in our last issue, are some- what puzzling. Mr. George Randell is very good man, but a townsman. We are not aware that he has any of the local and practical knowledge which would seem desirable for the position, and which can only be acquired in a country life. As for Mr. Crowther, he would be just the man, if he lived in Perth, but, seeing that he lives at Gerald- ton, the object of his appointment is simply incomprehensible. News has been received of Captain Arch- deacon and H.M. surveying vessel Meda. Captain Archdeacon, dating Simon's Bay, May 24, gives a short account of his trip out so far. The voyage to Madeira was tedious, and during a gale which was encountered, the Meda lost her topmast and jibboom, which caused a detention at the island of some six days. From Madeira to Simon's Bay, &nbsp; which they reached on the 15t...

Supreme Court-In Bankruptcy. MONDAY, JULY 12TH. (Befor» Mr. Registrar Cowan.) IN THE MATTES OF MB. W. MILES, A BANK- RUPT. Mr. F. M. Stone appeared for the petitioning creditor, Mr. Henry Albert. The bankrupt filed a statement of his affairs, shewing unsecured creditors to the amount of about £1400 ; and secured creditors (Messrs. Stone and Burt), £400, by mortgage on the Tribune. The assets shewn were one fourth of the Clarence Packet, valued at £100 ; furni- ture, £75 ; book debts, £40 ; and chronometer, etc. ¡-total, about £350. Mr. S. H. Parker proved for Messrs. John McGibbon, W. Lakey, D. Cameron, J. A Cook, and others. Mr. F. M. Stone, on behalf of Mr. Albert, proposed that Mr. Higham be appointed trus- tee.

Upon its being put to the vote, the proposer and seconder were the only per- sons who voted in the affirmative ; all the other creditors, by Mr. John McGibbon, then* proxy, voting against the proposition, which was ac- c...

FARM AND STATION. INTERNATIONAL WOOL SHOW. REPOBT or SPECIAL COMMITTEE AFFOINTXO BY THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF NSW SOUTH WALKS, ON THE EXHIBITS. (Concluded.) Riverina, though a part of New Sooth Wales, ex- hibits a type of wool toa great exteut of a represen- tative kind. No district in the colonies shows such a marked improvement, as applied to her wool of to» day and that of a few years ago. Deficiency in quality is amply atoned for by increased weight of fleece. The Riverina wools are all sound, light in yolk, and deeply grown. These qualities have made them specially desired by American manufac- turers. The disappearance of salt bush from River- ina, and the running of the sheep in paddocks, have combined materially to improve the Riverina clips. The amount of dust raised when the sheep were shepherded and yarded, operated seriously against the growth of the wool, as the natural secretions of the nore were soaked up by the dust, and the same effect is noticeable in this perishi...

THE NOVELIST. A RUSSIAN KING LEAH. r/From the German of Ivan Turgénjev.] (Continued.) 1 ?Undoubtedly, something very extraordi- nary waa happening. What was to be done ? Would it be well to send to town for the police? Should the peasants be called together ? My mother was at her wit's end. Shitkov also, who had dropped in to dinner, could oiler her no counsel, though, as usual; he Baid something about having formerly commanded a troop. How that was to help in this emergency, he could not suggest, and contented himself with looking servile and anxious. Kviczinski saw that no orders were likely to be given him, so he informed my mother, with that air of respect and independence combined which was habitual to -him, that if she would permit him to take a few of the grooms, gardeners, and courtyard ser- rants he would make an effort. " Tes ! yes ! " interrupted my mother, " pray try, dear Vikenty Ossipovitch, but Ïuickly, 1 beg of you ; I will be answerable or anything that may happen !...
