THE FIRST WINTER PERFORMANCE OF TEE ' THESPIANS.' [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 July 1880

THE FIRST WINTER PERFORMANCE OF TEE ' THESPIANS.' The critic can take up his pen to notice the performance at St. George's Hall, on Thursday evening last, with a very different feeling from that which usually affects him when it becomes his duty to make mention of amateur theatricals. Unprofessional acting is rarely otherwise than more or less painful to the spectator. He has an uneasy feeling that the thing is not thor- oughly safe. He cannot give way to unrestrained enjoyment, even when all is going fairly well ; he is afraid of a hitch, detects nervousness with which he becomes unpleasantly sympathetic sees passages marred, and suffers consequent annoyance, and at the close of the entertainment leaves with a greater sense of relief than of gratification. Then, if he must write a notice of the performance, he has a difficult task be- fore him, to reconcile his notions of civility, and his feelings of kindliness, with his desire so far as possible to avoid a gross departure from th...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FRIDAY, JULY 23. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 July 1880

Legislative Council. FRIDAY, JULY 23. The Spkaki* took the chair at 7 p.m. Sbipwbkckxd Colonial Skahsk Bru* The Colonial Secretary moved the second, reading of a bill to provide for the relief and retara to Western Australia of shipwrecked colonial sea- men. The hon. gentlemaa said the measure wat introduced at the request af the Imperial Govern- ment. Ne provision at present existed for the relief, and return hence, of distressed colonial seamen shipwrecked in England ; and, as Bri- tish seamen distressed through shipwreck in the colonies are sent home at Imperial expense, it would appear only right that colonial seamen be- coming distressed by shipwreck in the United Kingdom should be relieved and sent home at the expense of the respective colonies to which they belong. The bill provided that the Board of Trade, or the Shipwrecked Mariners Society, should be authorised to relieve and send home any distressed seamen belonging to this colony, when satisfied that such seamen could no...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PESTS, TUESDAY, JULY 27, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 July 1880

THE WEST ÄUSTMMAN. Vioilaks et Audax PESTS, TUESDAY, JULY27, 188Ö. The expectations of those who filled the galleries of the House on Wednesday night were doomed to disappointment. The de- bate fell flat-in fact, there was no debate at all. And this notwithstanding that the speech to which a reply had been moved, contained matter in abundance to furnish topics for even the least ready of orators. And our House boasts of orators who are always ready. What were the hon. mem- bers for Fremantle and Geraldton about ? A rumour had early spread that the valiant member for the Port would attack the figures, while the champion of the North was also supposed to have much upon his mind. But like the heroes of Walcheren when " Lord Chatham, with his sword undrawn Stood, eager waiting for Lord Strachan, Sir Bichard anxious to be at'em Stood waiting for the Earl of Chatham." neither apparently could prevail upon him- self to rush first into the fray. There is, undoubtedly, an immense advantage i...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 July 1880

LOCAL AND GENERAL. The Hon. R. T. Goldsworthy, C.M.G., has by telegram received yesterday, been offered the Administratorship of the Island of St. Lucia. On Saturday evening last the York mail was capsized in the neighbourhood of Grove farm on the Guildford road. The horses shied at aheap of stone placed alongside the road, swerved against a fence, and the trap, passing over the stone, was capsized into the field it enclosed. None of the passengers were severly hurt, but a Mrs. Cook was greatly bruised and shaken. We understand that much of the Buccess of the late performance of the Thespian Dramatic Club was attributable to the excellence of ' make- up,' and that Mr. Hinton Naylor Griffiths-very kindly came forward on the occasion and lent his valuable experience. We have great pleasure in noticing this graceful act on the part of a pro- fessional gentleman. We observe six most magnificent oranges exhibited in the show window of Mr. G. Shenton's store. They were brought down from C...

BE-OBGANISATION OF THE GREEK ARMY. ATHENS, July 21. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 July 1880

RE-ORGANISATION OF THE GREEK ARMY. ATHENS, July 21. The Greek Government, who have lately been devoting considerable attention to the condition of the standing Army, have come to the conclusion that the service shows need for a complete and searching reform, and it has been resolved that the army system shall be entirely re-organised and improved. THE affair of the destruction of the Kelly gang was not only a very remarkable one in itself, it was so (says the Australasian) in the strangely picturesque and outré character of many of the in- cidents. Thus for instance, there is that of the rough steel-clad armour manufactured for the bushrangers by some blacksmith of felonious sym- pathies. This, we are told, was made of plough- shares, but it is clear that what is meant is the "mould-boards" of steal, ¼ inch thick, which turn over the sod after the share has cut it. There is something quite weird in its picturesqueness in the description of Ned Kelly stalking out of the forest in the...

TURKEY AND THE BERLIN CONFERENCE. LONDON, July 20. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 July 1880

TURKEY AND THE BERLIN CON. FERENCE. London, July 20. The third reply has at length been re« ceived from the Turkish Government to the collective Note despatched by the Berlin Conference on June 30th to the Govern- ments of Turkey and Greece, fixing the limits of frontiers between the two countries. The Porte proposes, in reply, that the im« portant city of Larissa, the capital of the province of Thessaly, shall continue to form part of Turkey, together with Janina, the capital of Albania. The Berlin Conference decided that the latter city should be on the Greek side of the new frontier. The reply further proposes that the town of Mezzoro, 23 'miles to the north-east of Janina, should be retained by Turkey, which place the Conference had also decided should be within the new Greek frontier.

WHO IS TO BLAME. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 July 1880

WHO IS TO BLAME. To the Editor of the West Australian. Dear Sir,-Allow me, please, a short spas* for a few brief remarks upon a letter by " Cen- sor" which appeared in today's Inquirer. I quite agree with " Censor" in thinking that th» guard of honour at the opening of Council wm summoned absurdly early. It ia not fair on men who lose time, by attending parades, to b* kept under arms far longer than is necessary. I myself travelled eleven miles to attend the guard, and we were kept standing nearly two hours, when twenty minutes would hate been ample time for the whole parade. But my object in writing to you is to inform " Censor ' that no blame ought to be attributed ' to Captain Hillman. He, I imagine, received his orders from the Staff Officer of Volunteer», and as a matter of course, obeyed them. Every member of the Metropolitan Rifle Volunteer« knows that Captain Hillman is the most con» siderate of officers, and " Censor*' may rest quita assured, that, had tho time for assembli...

NOW OR NEVER! TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 July 1880

NOW OR NEVER ! To the Editor of the West Australian. Sin,-I endose a copy ot a memorial wiucn was presented to Sir Harry Ord, shortly after his arri- val, by the settlers in the Eastern districts, and as it has never appeared in any of the leading journals of the colony, perhaps you might think it worth publishing (at least that portion of it which refers to the probable traffic that might be counted upon if the present line of railway were continued to- the Eastern districts.) The statistics were com- piled from the various Blue Books of 1874, '75, aud '76, and may be considered tolerably correct. The traffic now is doubtless considerably increased, as the sandalwood trade has been as brisk as ever the last two years, and if the teamsters had only to deliver this product at York or Northam, no doubt there is sufficient supply far back to the East and South of York to keep up the trade for several years, as, on the private and Government lands the young trees are growing up in milli...

MR. PRINSEP AND HIS UNKNOWN "FRIEND." TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 July 1880

MR. PRINSEP AND HIS UNKNOWN "FRIEND." To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-So many have asked me " Who's your friend," that I beg you will allow me to confess my total ignorance of the name of that captious critic in the lnquirer who seems so fond of the word "rendition." At the same time I must   record my opinion that the late Thespian enter- tainment was the best we have seen ; and thai I saw scenery, because, I suppose like most people, I knew where to look for it, and I thought it pretty good, though rather contracted, - at least very suitable to the pieces played. If the public hunger for amusement, such treatment will blight the growth of that food which   will satisfy them. Accurate criticism, even though adverse, will do good; but such mis- appreciation of the intentions of the actors, as well as of the plays themselves, is only aggra- vating. Yours, etc., HARRY C. PRINSEP. Perth, July 29.

SOME HINTS FOR OUR M.L.Cs. 1 I To THE EDITOB OF THE West" AUSTRALIAN. ¡sib.-As our noble senators are in council assembled, deliberating and legislating for the advancement of our adopted country, I would beg leave humbly, and with all the respect due to such dignatàries, to give my opinion on one or two matters likely to be submitted for their consideration. One of the first questious that should occupy the attention of the House, in connection with the health and welfare of our fellow creatures, is-hospitals. . Let our legis- lators look at this question in the light of Christ- ians, and not as a number of men pandering to public opinion on money matters. Had Mr. Steere, when he said that not one sixpence more should be spent in Champion Bay district, or had those members who voted against the first sum asked for being placed on the Estimates, ever seen or heard of a man dying, you may say, on a dung-hill (as was reported in a recent number of the Wat Australian) ?

MR. MAJOR IN DEFENCE OF THE QUEENSLANDERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 July 1880

MR. MAJOR IN DEFENCE OF THE QÜEENSLANDERS. . y To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-I have read in the local papers a para- graph purporting to be copied from the Queens- lander, of a diabolical murder alleged to have been perpetrated in that colony by the nameless manager of a ñámeles* station, on a black boy named "Toby." I have not seen the issue of the Queenslander in which the highly sensa- tional crime alluded to was published, but take the story to be the production of some novelist of your own "Moondyne Joe" stamp, and just as worthy of credence. I, as an old Queenslander, do unhesitatingly affirm, if such a murder was ever committed, the perpetrator was brought to condign punishment. The Queensland Government and Queensland era are just as humane (and are not the colony of demons you would wish the world to sup- pose) as that of West Australia, and its inhabit- ants. A lot of trash has been written by Exeter Hall dupes, and also by those who should be better informed,...

C!rt» -WIia ohiioa **ff o nrtnrat* nilli/»li iu ni Ai* All Sir,-The abuse of a power which is placed in the hands of the police has j nat been instanced here, and I think should be noticed before it becomes more common than it at present is. The power to which I refer is that of " calling, in the Queen's name" any bystanders to assist in the arrest of offenders against; the majesty of the law. The abuse which I particularly refer to is, that not unfrequently .the police call on citizens to assist them in dragging helplessly drunken men to the station, when, by simply sounding their whistle and waiting a little while for police assistance, they would be able to get it. It surely is outrageous that a peaceful citizen should be liable at any time to be called on (by a man who possibly may have a grudge against him) to assist at such very unpleasant work as I mention. The case which has drawn my attention to this abuse is ...
