SIR JAMES STEPHEN ON IRELAND. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

SIE JAMES STEPHEN ON IRELAND. ÎTROÎI THK "WEST AUSTEA.U»kN.] j Certain letters on the Irish question addressed to the Times by Sir James Stephen-the last of which was in- cluded in the papers to hand by the recent mail-have been read with very general interest at home. Of equal interest, almost, have they proved to colouists, because they deal at length with the question why Ireland should not be plated iu the same position re- latively to the Empire as Canada or the Australia». The reasons against this proposition do not always present themselves very cleailv to the colonist mind, and Sir James Stephen gives them with a foi ce which has not hitherto been excelled. He shows, in the first place, conclusively, that to concede to the demands of the Nation- alists for an Irish Parliament paves Jthe way for separation-makes separa- tion, in fact, easy of attainment, un- less, indeed, we are prepared to obviate such a result by means of armed watchfulness or armed intervention. To tbe Can...

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10. The cross-examination of the plaintiff by the Attorney General was resumed. He said be did not remember the defendant Feeney being in the York hospital suffering from delirium tremens a few weeks before he made the agreement with witness for the sale of the land. He remembered his being in the hospital, but he understood he was there in consequence of an accident. (The Attorney General here produced a certificate from Dr. Thompson, the resident medical officer at York, but Mr. Burt objected to the admission of the document as evidence, and His Honor upheld the, objection ) Did not recollect Feeney being in a state of delirium tremens on the occasion of the magisterial inquiry arising out of the murder of constable Hackett. In fact, he never heard of his suffering from " d.i.," or being so affected by drink as to be unfit to be examined as a wit- ness. Feeney was three hours in the hotel parlour at York on the evening when the agreement was signed, waiting for wi...

CLOSING OF EXHIBITION. [FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

CLOSING OF EXHIBITION. - [FROM THE WEST AtTfiTBAliIAN.l The Exhibition which was closed last I night has been sufficiently successful to make it probable that similar in- dustrial shows will be held at fre- quent interval in the future. Those who took the trouble to organize it deserve more than a mere passing word of commendation. Their ori- ginal idea-to bring together a col- lection of the exhibits prepared for the Indian and Colonial Exhibition was a good one It would have been satisfactory had we been thus enabled to form some general estimate of the material upon which our Commis- sioners at South Kensington will have to work, leading as it might have done to practical suggestion and useful sup- plementary effort. It became, how- ever, quite out of the question to carry out the proposal as it first was made. Exhibits had to be sent home as they came to hand and as oppor- tunities for shipping them offered, « and anything like a complete repre- sentation of them was consequentl...

ROEBOURNE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

ROEBOURNE LETTER. We have had no rain yet, in Roebourne and the country is perfectly dry. There have been rains in other parts of the dis- trict, and evidently heavy falls inland, for the Sherlock has come down a banker twice. A few partial showers have also visited the coast plains of that River There have also been some heavy showers about Jones's Creek and Mount Fisher. To the Southward there has been no rain between the Big Hill and Roebourne. Captain Mayne arrived the other day from Congdon and reports that the De Grey had come down a banker from in- land ruii.a and that there have been showers in some of the low hind paddocks. The Roebourne Pool is nearly dry, and is not fit for stock, and we have to depend upon the water at the spring and in private wells, which latter have stood out fairly well. The proposed Roebourne terminus of the tramway has caused disatisfaction, and with reason, as the selected spot is at the lower end of the town and would in any ordinary flood be und...

OUR GERALDTON LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

OUR GERALDTON LETTER. -o The chief event of the week was the Quarter Sessions, which were presidedoyer by that well-known humorist, Mr «or. W. Leake. His personal characteristics were on this occasion not quite so pronounced .as usual, and if the sentences he passed were rather more severe than we are accustomed to, none the less were they^ deserved. Two men received ten years j imprisonment between them for larceny j and attempted arson. Both were well known bad characters, and the evidence in each ca»e was, though not of the best, «ufiiciently conclubive to j ustity convic- tion. Undoubtedly in Mr. Leake the colony possesses au able lawyer if a not over discreet magistrate. If he would only bear in mind that excellent advice to magistrates some one or other gave, viz., ««Gentlemen commit as many prisoners as you like, but never commit yourselves, there would be little occasion to find any fault with him. And talking of Mr Leake reminds me that Mr. Eliot lb improving in health, and...

An Incident with a Moral. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Au Incident with a Moral. Particulars of an extraordinary ad- venture, in which the involuntary hero* was a truant school-boy, caine by the last English mail. The scene of the incident was a small village called Bourfcon, in Somersetshire. It appears that a little boy, ten years of age,* started off as usual from home to attend the village school one morning, Taking with him the pence which were to pay his fees. Tempted however by the seductions' of an apple stall the youngster invested his school money in pippins, and, being afraid to go home, loitered about in the public park, playing with other children whom he met there, lu the course of their games, which were carried on close to a stream which runs through the grounds, our hero fell into the river. This not unusual ter- mination to the romps of schoolboys under such conditions, was followed up by the decamping of u!> his playmates. It was a bitterly cold night, in January, and, left alone in his plight, the lad made his way...

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

g.1 _ -A SCAPEGOAT. j Bf LUCÏ BLAKE. Miss Doris Bracondale was bending over a glass counter strewn with «octet books and card cases of every imaginable shape that fine leather and crushed velvet could be made to as* sume. She was a noticeably pretty girl even among the best of faultlessly toiletted beauties that the summer brrn«s to Baden-Baden, and stragglers through the colonnade where she stood "gave vent to an occasional « Voila la belle Anglaise!" or " What a lovely face '."-quite in a whisper of ourse. The object of her quest was a case to contain a photograph suitable for carrying in a gentleman's pocket, the photograph being a poor reflection of her own delicately-tinted «weet face, and tbe pocket for which it was destined that of Mr. Felix Wyatt, her betrothed lover. After much deliberation, she select- ed a pretty little toy in white leather with a spray of forget-me-not» painted on it, and a beetle, anatomically wrong, capering in one corner. It was lined with the palest ...

Making Fish-Hooks. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Making Fish-Hooks. One who hos seen Êsb>hooks made says : " I saw a magical little machine not long ago, bite off a little piece of steel wire, chew it a moment, and then spit it out formed into a perfect hook. It would toss out these little hooks every half-second, the different machines making the different Bices. There are eight steps in the making of a fish-hook by the machines 1 saw. The curious little machines would first nip off bits of wire ; another stroke of the machine, and the bit of wire had a loop in one end. The next half second the wire had a hack in it near the other end. Then came a little hammer stroke which flattened out the hacked end. Then a little chisel shaved the flattened end into a point. And, lost of all, it receives the crook, and drops a per- fectly-formed hook into a little bucket, having been, only four secondB before, nothing but an inca or more of steel wire on a reel. There are two ways of finishing these hooks. Either they are " japanned," whic...

FOOD AND CLOTHING OF CHILDREN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

POOD AND CLOTHING OP 1 CHILDREN. ! In connection wich the Board of Tech- nical Education of New South Wales a lecture bas been delivered by Dr. Roth, in the Technical Hall, on "Pood and Clothing of Children." 1 Dr. Ruth said : In this city there is a great mortality amongst children, in fact, j over 50 per cent, of the total deaths takes place amongst children under 5 years of age. The majority of these children are born strong and healthy, but for some cause or ether tbey pine away aud die. The reasons of this mcrtality amongst these strong healthy children are general- ly negligence, ignorance, and poverty. The two former can be easily averted by giving proper instructions on health mat- ters to girls attending private and pub- lic schools. On looking over the causes of death one is struck by the great num- ber due to diseases of the bowels and of the chest, due to improper feeding and clothing. Five years ago I had the op- portunity whilst attending the General Hospital in Vienna...

OUR DERBY LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

OUR DUR BY LhïTER. We nave had a splendid rainfall of over 34 inches, and it does not appear to be all over yet. This, I am informed, only represents the fall in the townsite, and, by all accounts, is much less than has fallen further inland. Both the Leonard and Fitzroy rivers have overflowed con- siderably, but neither of them ore as high as lost year, and no loss of stock bos resulted. It has, however, made travel- ling very arduous, and in some places impossible, and one or two settlers on the far side of the Fitzroy were reported & few days ago as being rather short of rations in consequence, but ere this some- body will have swam to their relief. The various lambings now going on Sromise to be exceedingly good. The leda River Company began very well, but owing to their having to dip their sheep about five months ago do not expect quite such favourable returns. At the Kimberley Pastoral Company's out- station at Liveringa, and Mr. Game's station on the Yeeda river very ...

A View of the Colonial Wool Trade. (FROM THE "ARGUS.") [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

A View of the Colonial Wool Trade. { (FROM THE " ARGUS.") It would probably be diflioult to find a more striking commentary on the vanity of human attempts to peer into the future than has. been afforded by the course of the wool mar- ket during the past six weeks. After the fall which culminated in September a reaction set in, and the year 1885 olosed at prioes showing a distinot advance of id. per lb. on the September rates. At the close of last, and for the first fortnight of the present, year the trade at home took a most sanguine view of the future. From advices dated January 14, five days before the sales opened, it seems clear that a very firm market with an upward tendency was anticipated, and that most of those who did net bold considerable stocks were regretting their caution. And yet the sales opened on January 19 at prices in favour of buyers, and closed on the 13th inst. at an all-round fall of from id. to Id. per lb. There can be little doubt now that the chief cause o...

Green Ma[?]re. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

Green Manure. 5t. Jamet's Gazette of a late date has th» following :-" The question of green manure is just now attracting a good deal of attention abroad. In Saxony and Silesia, where an al- most purely sandy soil abounds, whare there is consequently little fodder, and cattle-feed- ing will not pay, the want of ordinary ma« nure has led to the practice of employing in« stead such green crops as clover and vetches. The procedure is as follows :-So Boon as the rye-a common crop in Saxony has flowered, yellow vetch-seed ig grown among it in the proportion of 2¿ bushels to the acre. Protected by the ryestalkB the vetches Boon sprout, but are still too young at harvest-time to be touched by the reaping machine. Immediately afterwards they Í shoot ahead rapidly, and ought to be in full flower at the beginning of September. The ' field is then well rolled so as to thoroughly "lay" the plants, and the plough follows the roller, ploughing the vetch crop. Every four or five years about 4 cwt...
