Superintendent of Roads have been large in pro- portion to the amount of the Road Loan expended.'

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, AUG. 10, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 August 1880

ïTÛE.i VIGILANS ET AUDAX "PERTH, TUESDAY, AUG. Í0, 18ScT THOSE who'remember the Legislative Coun- cil of this colony during the first few years after its establishment, cannot fail to notice a very marked improvement as to the man- ner in which public " questions are now ap- proached^ from that which was usual in the earlier periods of its existenèe. It is un- deniable that a much more " broad and comprehensive" view is now taken by hon- ourable members than that very " cribbed, cabined, and confined" one, which was at first so much to be deplored. Members are no longer the mere special advocates for their particular districts, at one time ap- parently the conception of the position which they favoured. Special advocacy, except when the object can be shown to be really legitimate, isbut little tolerated in the House, and our legislators we trust have learnt, that the general interests of the colony must come ürat, and interests that are purely local, t>econd. This we are glad to ...

A FALL OF SNOW. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 August 1880

A FALL OF SNOW. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. Youra truly, C.BOSE. Wilgarrup, August 6th. DEAR SIR,-Thinking it might be interesting te many of the readers of your paper, I ask permission to make a statement which perhaps will surprise not only them but yourself. This morning I fauna on going out that it was unusually cold. It waa raining at the time, and I looked at the thermometer, and, to my surprise, found it at 38 deg. This waa at 8 a.m. Two hours later, to my still greater astonishment it commenced to suow, and very large flakes fell for about ten minutes. I looked at the thermometer again, and found it Btill the same. The servant girls (who are both colonists) then told me it bad been snowing early in the morning, and, on my granary steps, it was lying a quarter of an ¡inch thick. It is the first snow I have seen in the colony, hot 1 have been told there was snow on the Black« wood about 56 years ago. One tery old native described it to me, and I have no doubt, froaa ...

THE INCIDENCE OF TAXATION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 August 1880

THE INCIDENCE OP TAXATION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR. During the debate in reply to the address of His Excellency, Mr. Steere is reported to* have said " The only taxation in this colony is taxa " tion through the Customs ; we have no other " tax properly so designated, and that being the " case, it must be apparent, that the richer "class of people, who of course cousume* *' greater quantity of dutiable articles than tha " poorer class, contributo quite as much pro* " portionately to the revenue." As this max« im of political economy was passed unchalleng- ed by the House, I presumo it was accepted aa an infallible dogma, not to be gainsaid ; and, coming from such a source, it might also be ac- cepted by the unthinking, if not refuted. But can Mr. Steere really mean what ha says ? The chief articles on which duties ara imposed, are hops, drapery, Hour, spirits, wine. tobacco, sugar, tea, etc. I take it for granted that it is an acknowledged fact that the consum- ers...

THE WEST ÄIST1ÄMAN. VioiLAKs ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, AUG. 13, 1880. In the Legislative Council yesterday Mr. GRANT moved for a return of all moneys raised under the provisions of the North District Special Revenue Act, since the passing of the Act, up to the end of last year ; and a return showing in what manner such moneys had been expended. In reply to Mr. S. H. Parker, The COLONIAL SECRETARY said it was not the intention of the Government to introduce during the present session a bill for the purpose of amend- ing the Tariff Act, by removing the import duty on flour.

COTPÏTfiY LETTES! (From our Correspondents.) M BUNBURY, August 7. Since my last we have had a continuation of storm, and bad weather. The brig Theresa has been lying here thirteen days unable to discharge cargo, which might be landed in four hours j and I hear that her detention has suspended the consumption of spirits and tobacco at the Vasse, to which port she is bound with supplies. The Mayflower and fixtures were knocked down at the Vasse on Wednesday, at nominal prices, the depreciation being caused by the inaccessibility of her position.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. MONDAY, AUGUST 9. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 August 1880

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. MONDAY, AUGUST 9. The SPEAKER took the chair at 7 p.m. EXCESS OF APPROPRIATIONS. The COLONIAL SECRETARY, pursuant to notice, moved that the House resolve itself into a committee of the whole, to consider certain exponses requisite to be incurred in certain departments, over and above the sum voted in the Appropriation Act for the current year. The bon. gentleman said the course adopted with reference to this matter was a somewhat unusual one, but he felt sure that the feelings of the House would be with him when he ex- plained the reason for its adoption. That rea- son simply was, that the votes appropriated by the House for the services in question had proved inadequate, the actual expenditure hav- ing exceeded the estimated expenditure. The first item and the heaviest item to which he would call the attention of the House was in connection with the Postal and Telegraph De- partment - " Conveyance of Inland Mails, £3000." This might appear a large amount in exc...

Jama I Palmer, contractor for the Northern Railway, and J the Governor of the colony. On Wednesday, the 4tb inst., the Court granted a rule nut, calling upon the contractor to show cause why the remission to arbitration of the dis- pute between him and the Government should not be revoked, ou the ground that the arbitrators had erroneously held that the contract entered into between the parties had been abandoned. Mr. S. H. Parker, with whom Mr. Burt, now | appeared to show cause why the rule should not be ¡ made absolute. The Crown was represented by the Attorney General, with whom Mr. Howell. Mr. PARKER, before proceeding to argue the case on its merits, raised the question of whether the Court had any jurisdiction, or any right to interfere with the decision of the arbitrators.
