A Neglected Industry. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

A Neglected Industry, When Mr. Shenton at the last session of Council called attention to the desira- bility of offering rewards for the destruc- tion of porpoises, which the hon. member said were becoming very numerous in the river Swan and caused great havoc among the fish, the Colonial Secbetary sug- gested the formation of a syndicate, to be called the Porpoise Destroying Syndicate, to remedy the evil complained of. Such a syndicate, Mr. Fbasbb believed, would be "a very good paying concern, as the oil from these porpoises was a very valu- able article of commerce." It seems not to be generally known that the flesh of the porpoise, as well as the oil, is also useful, and not only useful but edible. So it is, however ; and in seme parts of the United States this mammal-as Mr. Pba seb;U maybe playfully suggested might be done here-is turned to very profitable account. We lean from an American con- temporary that porpoise-fishing for the oil alone has been carried on for many years...

Wanted—Public Baths. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

j Wanted-Public Baths. Oue of the questions early asked by new arrivals when thuy are shewn the magnificent sheet of water in front of Perth is, "I presume you have public baths? Whore aro they?" For reply their attention is directed to that galvan- ized iron building in frontjof tho JAecrea tiou Ground, which does duty, after a fashion, as a public bath. In connection with this matter " A Lover of Water" sends us the folio wing complaint:-It is no exaggeration to say that tho bathing house is at präsent almost entirely in the hands of the rougher members of the population. Early in the morning a bath may be had quietly and enjoyably. Later on in the day the facilities for bathing ::re lessened. The waters are muddy from the stirring up the bot- tom has undergone since morning, and, in tho evening, a walk to the bathing house for a swim is just suf- ficient to cause you to retrace your steps homeward. If a good extent of the the deep water parallel with Mount's ¿Say Road could be en...

Land Grant Railways. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Land Grant Railways. The formal commencement of the Midland Ballway has revived the question of the expediency or otherwise of the adoption of the land grant system of railway construction, and our daily cou teinporari"S have devoted several articles to the subject. It is not difficult to fore- see how great a change the adoption of the land grant system as applied to rail- way making may produce. Should they succeed, that which has heretofore been accomplished in the face of difficulties and by slow degrees will be vastly accelerated. In the earlier stages of Australian settlement the construction of railways by the State was a necessity. In no other way could the capital essential for such purposes be obtained thau by borrowing on the public credit. We have already borrowed pretty largely for a community of between 30,000 and 40,000 souls, and wo are doing the best we can with the money so obtained. But many believe wfi have paid dearly for our experience in railway making. Still,...

The Dog Nuisance. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

The Dog Nuisance. There ave few subjects which bave so largely engaged the attention of the leg- islators of this colony as tile dog nuisance. " * Scarcely a session passes without the law -on the subject being amended, or at any jaie altered. Sometimes the bone of content is the native dug ; at other times it is the dog of the nativa ,- sometimes it is the dug of the country, sometimes the »dog of the town. With regard to the first .juuned there is a general consensus of opinion tliat the sooner he is made to dis- appear from the face of the earth tiie bet , ter will it be for the sheep farmer; but -as regards the seiond his right of exist- ence is a controversial point. While -some lion, members regard the native's ¡dog with a pathetic interest, and laud bim - ^ÉteHiis virtue«, other members can see nothing but inherent vice in his nature. As to dogs in general, and the restiictions nuder which they ought to be tolerated, there ore few subjects which have occu- pied ihe atteutiou ...

The "S.M. Herald" and the Federal Council. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

The "S.M. Herald" and the Federal Connell. We wonder does any sense of the migenerons and tbe puerile strike our - Sydney contemporary when it reflects ob ' the tone it takes up about the meeting of the .Federal Council. On February 11 it wrote:-"Now that the eight gentlemen, who compose the Federal -Council of Australasia have brought their first session to a close, and-if so parliamentary a . *«< term can be applied to so droll an "lae assembly-prorogaed themselves,it should WE he a subject of congratulation at least i within the Council itself that its eontribit- -- - lion,to the first pages ot the Federal Statute Book corresponds so closely in character and importance with the char- acter and constitution of the Legislature of which that contribution is the first achievement." Now, we would ask, does -A the Herald really consider that such ..J ~ lungnage will add to its reputation. ' * Assuming that the efforts of the Council hare not been of an empire creating or ' V...

Stamping out Larrikinism. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Stamping out Larrikinism. Mr. Slade, who is doing duty as Acting Police Magistrate at Perth, is ^determined to put down larrikinism with a high hand. Unlike some of our Justices, he does not believe in exhibiting leniency to the rowdy. However he may regret to 6ce young men and lads who might lead respectable lives standing in the dock, ha allows no such considerations to interfere with the view he lakes of their case wheu befoiehitn. Quite recently three of theniost notorious leaders of a larrikin gang were " -each sentenced by him to six months' im- prisonment. This wtek another well .known character received oue month's imprisonment tor cowardly ill-treatment .of a mere boy. In each case the Acting »foHce Magistrate of Perth expressed bis stroNgf7 determination to do his best to stamp out larrikinism while it is yet, com- paratively speaking, in the germ. There are eth^r magistrates iu the Colony who hold the same views and carry them out in the same manuer. That, all things cons...

A Disagreeable Subject. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

A Disagreeable Subject. Those of our readers who are in the habit of persuing the daily reports of the proceedings ia our police courts cannot fail to have been struck with the increas- ing frequency, of late, of brutal assaults committed upon females by male ruffians. The offenders in the majoriiy orneases are the husbands of their wretched victims. It was only last week that a case occured at Fremantle when a drunken fiend brutally attacked a defenceless woman, who was lying on her bed half asleep, by striking her senseless with an iron bar, and afterwards repeating the dose, leaving the object of his savage fnry more dead than alive. On the very same day an- other fellow was brought up at the city police court, his wretched wife being in mortal terror of her life. More recently still, another brutal husband has been arrested for committing au aggravated assault ou his wife, by striking her with a bucket, his victim having to be taken to the Colonial Hospital for medical tra- ment...

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. PERTH WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT. Perth, March 12, 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

WEEKLY COMMERCIAL REPORT. ???- ?? ?» ?? ? ? ? PEETH WHOLESALE PEICES CUBBENT. Perth, March 12, 1836. The general aspect of trade is not favour- able Its principal feature is the enormous quantity of produce and manufactured goods which is now being forced upon the market, without consideration of its require- ments or the cost of the varions articles. It is said that some leading lines of merchandise have been sold in large quantities at 25 per cent, under cost, and while this is the case legitimate traders have great cause for anxiety as to the possibility of disposing of their own imports at remunerative rates. Looking at the unfavourable condition of affairs in many of our eastern colonies, and the consequent effort houses there are mak- j ing to force their stocks on buyers here, we think that our local merchants will see the propriety of curtailing their indents for some time to come. Money for investment is not plentiful, and it is an acknowledged fact that the banks look with...

%89Ustemytól SATÜBDAY, MARCH 13, 1886. GOLD IS THE COLONY. It is most disappointing that the last mail from our Northern districts has failed to bring us any news of value iu reference to gold discovery in these parts. From both tbe Kimberley and Nor* Wost intelligence more or less important wai« expected For the last five or six mouths no direct information has been received.. from Derby or Cambridge Gulf as lo the hoped for gold field lying some- where between these ports. Some accounts have certainly come to hand, but they have travelled round to us by the circuitous nute.of th« Eastern colonies. "Various gold seekers are said to have tried their luck in the river courses which intersect this the latest reported of Australian gold fields and to hare returned to Queensland and New South Wales with reports the reverse of cheering. The forbid- ding character ol' the country is in the opinion of some of these men only to be equalled by the difficulty ol finding the precious metal in ...

FORETELLING FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

FORETELLING FLOODS. - ?? ' ? ? ? A Ma. Ledgbe, writing to the Tam- worth News, says :-" After many years residence in Northern Queensland, and knowing well the habits and nature of the blacks generally, I can, from my own personal knowledge, and without fear ef contradiction, assert that it is the move- ments of the ants that the blacks study in reference to floods. When the ants begin to shift from the ground to the trees, then will the blacks shift to the ranges. Providence seems to have endowed these wonderful little in- sects with a certain amount of instinct, as no ordinary rains will shift them. Twenty years ago I was managing Leich- ardt Downs station, on the Burdekin, and only sixty miles from Cleveland Bay, and, on riding through a clump of timber one day, my attention was drawn by a black boy I had with me to the ants building "their nest in the highest and most secure fork of a tree they could find. I said to' the boy, "What that fellow yanP" The boy replied, "Coborn big ...

THE LAW OF DIVORCE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

? I THE LAW OF DIVORCE. | The Parliament of New South Wales is struggling hard to render divorce as sim- ple aud easy a matter as it is in most American States. Some few years ago Mr. Darley, Q.C., a gentleman who is a curious mixture of extreme radical and conservative viens, but whe not infre- quently dabbles in matters on which his large practice does not allow him to be- stow adequate thought, brought in a mea- sure enormously extending the grounds on which a married woman may apply for a divorce. He was stoutly opposed by Sir Alfred Stephen. The bill passed, and apparently Sir Alfred has gone over tu the enemy, for we now find him moving for leave to bring in a bill further to amend the law of divorce Jn the course of his remark», he ex- plained the provisions of the bill, and said that there was one provision to the effect that if since the celebration of the marriage the respondent had without just cause or excuse deserted the petition- er and remained continuously absent fro...

Haynes, the plaintiff's solicitor, raiseàfiii , important point with respect to the pay- ment of special jurors. It appears that, the cusioni of the court is to allow special < jurors a guinea per dtem for every day they are iu attendance at court, although - they may not be sitting the whole of the time. This, Mr. Haynes argued on - I Saturday last, was not in accordance - I with the meaning of the Jury Act*" In New South Wales special juries are only allowed attendance fees for the fdaya ?> they actually sit upon a case-not for the - days tltey are in attendance at Court. The Master over-ruled the objection, and Mr. Haynes brought the matter under the i notice of Mr. Justice Stone, in Chambers» on Monday. His Honour agreed'with the*. learned Counsel that it was a most im- portant question, and might, perhaps, involve a change in the...

It is needless to say that in doing so it once more be- comes hopelessly befogged.

" The._view- of the Court," observes this droll legal authority " and of the Chief Justice in particular, is that when a newspaper allows its columns t» be used for prejudicing cases and speaking of the Court iu unbecoming language , . . the Court should not con desceud to take notice except when it is unavoidable." Of course no such rub- bish escaped from the Bench. They sim- ply deeided that Fenwick v. Barnett was not commented ou in our columns, and...
