THE AUSTRALIAN CRICKETERS. LONDON, July 29. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

THE AUSTRALIAN CRICKETERS. London, July 29. 'The Australians, in their match against l8 of Hull, resumed the batting this morning, and were soon out, for 94, all told. The Home team then went in for their second innings, b<it made a still shorter stand, only »«»ring 37 runs. The Australians were thus left with but 16 runs to win, which they accomplished with 'the loss of one wicket only, thus adding one more victory to their already long and uninterrupted list of conquests, with nine wickets to spare.

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

0KASI9NAI NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. We understand that the interpretation generally placed upon the Governor's opening speech is altogether repudiated. It was not His Excellency's intention to intimate that he was opposed to the immediate extension of the East- ern Eailway, but that he did not consider it was for him to suggest a course which might not be altogether reconcilable with the strictest notions of prudence. If, however, the representatives of the people are determined to adopt this course, and can show him a way by which it may be possible to do so, His Excellency is re- ported to be by no means disinclined to assist them. This position seems somewhat analogous to that of the captain of a ship sailing, say, in the Southern Pacific, and destined for the Falkland Islands. The vessel approaches Cape Horn. The owner is on board ; he considers it necessary to his interests that the islands should be reach- ed in as short a time as possible, and proposes to the captain to shape...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, AUG. 3, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

Tam WEST MST1ÂLÏÂN. Vigiiaxs et Audax PERTH, TUESI>AT, AUG. 3, 1880. It is not at all surprising to find that those who at whatever risk, are determined if possible to drive the colony into accepting a form of constitution for which it is not yet ripe, should attack with envenomed hostility any measure having for its object the amelioration of our present position, and the removal of those abuses in regard to which we have now to complain. Neither is it surprising-if we bear past experience in mind-that this hostility should be ex- pressed in terms showing a total disregard for tho truth, and a determination to dis- tort facts so as to suit party purposes. For such advocacy of so called 'reform,' honest men can feel nothing but contempt. Such advocates over-reach themselves, and simply create antagonism, where a little more cau- tion, and the appearance at any rate of some slight regard for fairness in argument, would be infinitely more likely to further their ends. It is pleasan...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents. FREMANTLE, August 2. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

COUNTRY LETTERS. {From our own correspondents.   FREMANTLE, August 2.   On Saturday last, the Hon. J; H. Thomas (Director of Public Works) was charged before the Fremantle police magistrate with trotting his horse over the North Fremantle Bridge, con- trary to the notice in the Government Gazette. The evidence of the policeman went to show that he was stationed at the foot of the bridge to caution drivers of vehicles and equestriaus to walk their horses over, which he had done to several who crossed the bridge previous to Mr. Thomas ; but believing he was thoroughly aware of the notice and acquainted with the import- ance of its strict observance, he did not think it necessary to repeat the caution to him. He how» ever noticed Mr. Thomas trotting his horse, and accordingly summonsed him. Mr. Thomas explained that his horse became restive and broke into an amble, going down the hill. He urged that, as ambling is not trotting (which could he seen by reference...

"AUSTRALIAN " AND THE PROPOSED NATIVE MISSION AT THE MURCHISON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

"AUSTRALIAN" AND THE PROPOSED     NATIVE MISSION AT THE MURCHISON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-In your paper of the 27th inst., a writer under the signature of "Australian" deprecates any attempt "to improve" the natives of this   colony. There is a remarkable concurrence of opinion among practical business men about the possibility and expediency of raising and improv- ing the natives, though unhappily the efforts daily made, with exemplary patience and proportionate success, to effect this elevation and improvement, takes the direction of their faculties, and not of their social and moral condition. They are improv- ed out of aimless savages to be excellent shepherds, shearers, ploughmen, pearlers, and in various other capacities to be intelligent contributors to   the wealth and still higher elevation of their masters. It is very disheartening to find their moral sense so low, but if its cultivation had been absol...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, JULY 28. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 August 1880

Legislative Council. WEDNESDAY, JULY 28. The Speaker took the chair at 7 p.m. Disteict Hoads Act, 1871, Amendment Bill. The Commissioneb oí1 Ceown Lands moved the second reading of a bill to amend the District Boads Act. The object of the bill was to provide greater facilities than at present exist for the declaration of maia and minor roads. Since the present Act was framed, nearly ten years ago, the circumstances of the colony had very considerably changed, and it had been found necessary to alter its provisions, so as to enlarge the powers of the Governor to appoint main and minor roads from time to time upon the application of the local boards. At present the only provisions there were for setting apart and declaring new roads through- out the colony, were embodied in the 25th clause of the existing ordinance, which simply enacted that, for the purposes of the Act, the roads should be divided into classes, to be called main and minor roads, and that the local boaids should, with...

ARBITRATION FEES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

ARBITRATION FEES. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sib,-Might I suggest through the medium of your valuable journal, now that the Legisla- tive Council is sitting, that some one of its mem- bers might introduce a bul modifying the rate of allowance received here by arbitrators of dis- puted claims. The scale in force in this colony is that fixed as remuneration in disputed cases in England, and is douhtless justly claimed by arbitrators here, in the absence of any other re- gulation. But it is clear that the conditions of arbitra* tion in Western Australia, as well with refer- ence to the value of the subjects of litigation as with regard to the value of the time of the ar- bitrators, vary very greatly from those obtain- ing in the mother country. And I would sug fest that some lower amount of daily fee for ar itrators and umpires (say three guineas a day as a maximum), might possibly be considered sufficient for the services in this colony of arbi- trators who may be chosen to...

OUR LAND REGULATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

OUR LAND REGULATIONS. I To the Editor of the West Australian. I Dear Sir,-In one of your recent issues I read with great pleasure a letter emanating from Mr. J. Morrison, referring among other things to a future land policy for this colony ; - bnt, whilst admiring the progressive views it advo- cated, I think fifty years too long a period to grant leases for. For the last few years, having been to some extent connected with land and squatting, I have given the subject great attention and there- fore trust the few remarks I am going to make will merit some consideration from our legis- lators. In forming future land regulations I think all will agree with me that the main point to be kept in view is to have the land made more valuable and productive than it is at present. To secure this, it must be improved by the hold- ers ; and to get this done the great requisite is security of tenure. On this point everything hinges. It is now an established fact that 50000 acres of land, fenced,...

A CORRECTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

A CORRECTION. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-If people will write long letters in equivo- cal hands they cannot complain if some of their I hieorglyphics fail to bo deciphered. I should not think it worth troubling you or your readers about some mistaken conjectures on the part of the prin- ter in the letter you were good enough to insert for me last Tuesday, were it not that two or three of them were rather serious divergencies. The gentleman whose letter I replied to is, spoken of " as culpable in deceiving" instead of " in delivering." The native interpreter in South Aus- tralia is spoken of as commended for his intelli- gence in interpreting " not in one but in several dittricts," which should have read " dialects." It is said that " efforts made tahesthe direction "where it would have been better to " take." There are other trifling errors, which, as I have said, length with want of legibility may well condone. Thanking you for the space afforded me. I remain air. Y...

MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. To tub Editob ob the West Australian. Sib,-The Standard yr'ùl be tue proper place for a full discussion of the attitude of the Church towards the question of marriage with a De- ceased Wife's Sister ¡but as many will see your article on the subject who will not see the Church paper, I hope you will give we space for a few remarks. You say, as if there were no doubt about it, that the laity differ from the clergy on this matter. We have no proof of it, and I do not for a moment believe it. A large proportion of the people of England and a large proportion in the colonies are not even nominally members of the Church of England. Of those in full cum munion with the Church who have looked into the matter I believe a large majority are en- tirely at one with the clergy both as to their conclusion and the grounds of it. As to the in- terpretation of the Mosaic Law,' your own {irinciple of common sense rightly applied eads to the opposite conclusion.* ...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, AUG. 6, 1880. THE DEBATE ON THE AUDIT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

IBU WEST ASST1ÄMÄN. VIOH.A3ÎS et Atjdax PFBT¿FBWAtTaUg7g, 1880. thFdebatï^^tiieI^dit^ct. The arguments used by the opponents of the Audit Act may bo summed, up as fol- lows :-that it is novel, that it is sensa- tional, that it is perfectly unnecessary, that it is unconstitutional, that it would unduly hamper the Administration, that it would be useless because it would not hamper tho Administration at all, that it would stave off Responsible Government, that it would be costly, and finally, that it is au insult to His Excellency the Go VEBirOB. "When the honourable gentleman who used the three first of these arguments is put up to speak at the very beginning of a debate, it íb generally understood that the matter, iu the opinion of the Government, is one of such serious importance as to make it necessary that they should hastily play their trump card. But the honour- able gentlemau was not happy on Monday night. His heart evidently was not in his words, and when he was reduced to qu...

"AUSTRALIAN" REPLIED TO. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

"AUSTRALIAN" REPLIED TO.' To the Editor of the West Australian. Sib,-The letter of "Australian," in your issue of Tuesday last, must not go unnoticed, as it may well lead some of your readers into error on a very important sub- ject ; though I may presume there could be but few who would accept the dicta of an anonymous writer against the formal re- ports of Bishop Salvado, and others of like experience. Cbaritv would lead ono to suppose that " Australian " could never have read those reports, still less can it be supposed that he has seen the report of the Crown Com- missioners on the state of the natives in Victoria. I am not, nor I think will many others be, willing to accept him-as judge, jury, and witness in his own cause, or per- mit a verdict of not guilty to pass, without further evidence before some more satisfac- tory tribunal-indeed, the example he has chosen in illustration shows his unfitness for the office he has assumed. A certain " nigger," as I have no doubt " Austr...
