DUBIOUS COMPLIMENTS, AND A SERIOUS CHARGE. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

DUBIOUS COMPLIMENTS, AND A SERIOUS CHARGE. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,-Since your valuable paper has assumed the functions of your contemporaries-furnish- ing the public with authentic intelligence-I have never been more struck with its contents than those of last Tuesday's paper. Your comments on Mr. Morrison's scheme for the regeneration of our finances, are incom- plete, and perhaps purposely,-knowing well that the mere promulgation of the scheme is sure to deprive the colonists of that greatest of all blessings, Responsible Government, you " damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer, "and, without sneering, teach the rest to " sneer." Mr. Morrison is an able man, who has the best interests of the colony at heart, and I feel sure that if his scheme were carried out, the colonists would have the benefit of it. They would not put the money into their own pockets ; the revenue would be considerable ; and the Government would then (not as now) be enabled, for at l...

THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR NATURAL RESOURCES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR NATURAL RESOURCES. A PETITION was lately forwarded to His EXCELLENCY TUE GOVERNOR, numerously signed by the inhabitants of Albany, asking that the P. & O. steam packet company should he relieved from the payment of harbor and light dues when their steamers call at Kiug George's Sound. The reason whichthepetitioners assignedfor taking this course Avas, that the company's steamers might cease to put in at that or any other Western Australian port, unless they are dealt with on more liberal terms than at present: The reply which the petitioners received will doubtless have relieved them from any anxiety on this score. The col- lection of harbor and light dues will not de- prive us of the mail services of the P. & 0. Company, so long as the present compact between the Home Government, the Vic- torian Government, and the Company lasts. But it is, for other reasons, open to question whether the enforcement of these heavy dues at a port suchas King Ge...

INTER-COLONIAL NEWS. OUR MELBOURNE LETTER MELBOURNE, June 21. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

HU TER-COLONIAL NEWS. OUR MELBOURNE LETTER MELBOURNE, June 21. Apart from the debate on Mr. Service's Reform Bill, to which I will presently refer, the principal concern in our Legislative Assemblyduringthe past fortnight has been about payment of members. And no wonder, for with some of them, it is get- ting serious. It is easy to joke about six pounds a week, but if you do not get the six pounds it is no joke. Politics with many men here signify the means of living. It is very well to have the run of a library and a billiard-room, and free railway travelling, but a man cannot live on these things, however good they are in the way of supplement. Naturally, therefore, there is a very explainable anxiety on the score of legislatorial salaries, and it is becoming all the greater from the fact that it is uncertain. For while some declare for .£300 a-year all round, others wish to limit pay* ment to country members, so that those unfortu- nate gentlemen who live in Melbourne will pro- b...

WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1880. UNITY IS STRENGTH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

WEST ÜTRÄLIÄN. ViciiAxs ET AUDAX PEBTR, FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1880.' . UNITY IS STRENGTH. THE session of the Legislative Council is now close at hand, a session in which the House -will have to deal with many ques- tions of grave importance, and to seek some solution for difficulties more serious than any with which our Legislature has been confronted in the past. If these difficul- ties are to be met with success, and the la- bours of the session are to produce results of substantial-*benefit to the colony, mem- bers must unquestionably adopt a different line of tactics, a different method of work, from that which has hitherto prevailed. There hare of late years been but feeble attempts at anything in the shape of con- certed action. Desultory endeavours, from time to time, as questions of interest arose, to obtain majorities for one side or another have doubtless been made. But as an or- dinary rule, at ordinary times, members have come into the House to take action upon the. business ...

THE CHURCH AND THE MARRIAGE LAW. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

THE CHURCH AND THE MARRIAGE LAW. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-Now that the Synod is in session, would it not be advisable that the members should take into consideration the attitude of the Church towards the marriage law of the land. I am told, on good authority, that the Anglican Church refuses to acknowledge the change in the law respecting marriages with a deceased wife's sister, and that the clergy of that Church refuse to celebrate these mar- riages. It is not now-a-days maintained, I believe, that there is any reason, on religious grounds, why these marriageB should, not take place ; it is, therefore, difficult to see why our local branch of the English Church should not assi- milate its rules to the local law of the colony in which it is placed. The lay members of Synod should look into this, and have it out with their clerical breth- ren. Mr. Maitland Brown brought the Deceased Wife's Sister Bill triumphantly through the House,'and he would be the right man no...

What progress are they making, and what chance is there of a creditable show being made 1 Information on this subject would, I feel sure, be gladly recei- ved. .

CAN WE HELP THE BLACKS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

CAN "WE HELP THE BLACKS. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,-I notice that among the subjects which Bishop Parry proposes to bring under the con- sideration of the Synod in the course of the current session, is the scheme for establishing a missionary station on the Murchison, for the purpose of ameliorating the condition of the aborigines. In the mind of every conscientious colonist must of necessity be present some feel- ing of discomposure and discomfort when the subject of the aboriginal race crops up. Al- though' the extinction of that wretched people may be inevitable, an unavoidable evil of that sort is not to be contemplated withont some mental disquietude. It is impossible to avoid the consciousness that, in consequence of the extreme difficulty of knowing what te do with these creatures to ease their decline, we have done too little. There is no doubt, in fact, that the whole subject is one of immense difficulty. Season- ing on it from first principles, leads to a s...

'SOP POLICY' IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

SOP POLICY' IN NEW SOUTH WALES. GovmxaiEXT, as carried on under our repre- sentative constitution, has been frequently characterized as 'government by sop,'-the Administration playing into the hands of the larger interests in order to keep things quiet, and tide over awkward difficulties. And wc are frequently invited to inaugurate the system of party government as a cure for this -and other ills. Party government, though notori- ously imperfect, and necessarily accompanied by "certain evils and abuses, is nevertheless, without doubt, the host form of constitution for English communities, which has yet been devised ; and it is eventually adopted hy all, so soon as their circumstances make it prudent that they should. We have held, and the country has decided, that without a sacrifice of snch prudence, we could not, in this colon}*-, undertake these responsibilities at present. And wc have occasionally pointed out that, however desirable, for many reasons, full self-governing powers ...

The perfume from a gin is-well, A rather strange emetic. But, seeing that my theme is Pete, This verse will be the neater If I keep on the proper beat, And stick throughout to Peter. We picked him up the Lord knows where ! At noon we came across him Asleep beside a hunk of bear-- His paunch was bulged with 'possum.

THE WEST ¡PSTMMAN. ViGiLANs et Audax PERTH, TUmBA^JUL^2oTl8SO. THE SYNOD AND THE MARRIAGE LAW. We publish today such portions of the late proceedings in Synod as are likely to be of interest to the general reader. We scarcely think that a perusal of the three debates we give, on open churches, native missions and marriage with a deceased wife's sister, are likely to impress the public very favourably. In certain directions an ab- sence of that robustness of common sense which outsiders might deem desirable, is somewhat manifest. Noble purposes, hi^h aims, and good intentions hardly make up for the want of this quality. And although we gladly admit the evident sineeritv and earnestness displayed, we cannot but con- fess to a certain sense of disappointment in the result. More especially is this the casein regard to the treatment which the subject of marriage with a deceased wife's sister received at the bauds of the clergy. This is one of those questions which prove that there are, i...
