OBJECTS FOR LEGISLATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 July 1880

OBJECTS FOR LEGISLATION. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-Amongst the " various other measures of minor consequence," which His Excellency, in his address, told the Assembly, need not be particularized, I trust that in the interest of the country settlers the repeal of our "Masters and Servants Act," and the substitution of another will not be omitted. The sum and substance of our present Act is-warrant in the first instance for apprehension, and imprison- ment upon conviction. The alternative of a fine is not permitted, and agreements, written or verbal, are altogether ignored unless the work be entered upon and actually commenced. A traveller in search of work, or pretending to be so, may agree, draw a week's rations, stay the night, decamp the next morning, and can only be sued for-debt. Or he may make a contract in answer to advertisement, formally inserted three times in two local papers, to'put up (say, for instance) ten miles of wire fencing, and please himself as t...

THE FIRST FORTNIGHT OF THE SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 July 1880

THE FIRST FORTNIGHT OF THE SESSION. . The House has now sat for a couple of weeks, and scarcely anything at all lias been done. No real work of the slightest im- portance has been undertaken. Any mea- sures requiring more than the moat cur- sory consideration have been handed to the tender mercies of select committees, and the real business of the session has not yet been attacked. It has always been so of late. Everything of importance is crowded on at the last, and consequently that por- tion of the work which should demand the most earnest and serious application, re- ceives in reality the smallest amount. Energy flags and interest palls. Strange as it may appear, members actually weary of talk, and the torrents of words free flowing during the first few days-when no more serious topics than Colorado beetles, the punishment of larrikins, and the clos- ing of streets, form the vent pegs-run dry as the weeks pass by, till, as the session draws to a close, members will vote away tho...

THE AMIRSHIP OF CABUL. CALCUTTA, July 28. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

THE AMIRSHIP OF CABUL. Calcutta, July 28. Although a large number of the adherents of Ayoub Khan (formerly the Amir of Cabul) are favourable to the new Amir, Abdul Rahman, and, acting under British advice, bad actually accepted bim as such, it appears there ia still a considerable number of Ayoub Khan's party who persist in their hostility to the new Amir. One section of this party is very strong, and it is stated that, in consequence of their attitude towards Abdul Rahman, it is probable that the evacuation of Cabul by the British will, in the meantime, be deferred.

THE THESPIANS AND THEIR CRITICS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

THE THESPIANS AND THEIR CRITICS. To the Editor of the West Australian. ; Sir.-If X may be allowed, l should nice to point out to the many-eyed critic of the Inquirer, that if he wishes a criticism such as he furnish- ed upon the late performance of the ' Thespi- ans ' to carry with it any weight at all, it should at least have the small merit of being written in decent English. The critique I alluded to, . in addition to being obviously malicious, was ab- surd. Disraeli's definition of a critic as one who has failed in literature and art, although most frequently incorrect, would, at any rate, have some application in the present instance. ' " Argus " is certainly a failure from a literary point of view. And most probably, if Mr. Prin- sep knew who his " friend " is, we should be made aware that his knowledge of Art is equally deficient. The best recommendation I can give to " Argus" is, that, as his self-constituted office is to analyse, he should apply himself to the analysis of s...
