OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 August 1880

©OLSMINAIOTTE1 LOCAL AND GENERAL. TUE news received by telegram on Wed- nesday morning last, of the appointment of Lord Gifford to the'Cclonial Secretaryship of this colony, has caused much surprise, and not a little disap- pointment. We scarcely think that Ashantee is the best preparation for work of the kind which devolves upon the Colonial Secretary here. And that the Home Government should send out, at a critical time such as this is, a young and untried man-wholly untried so far as work of the nature of that which he now undertakes is con corned-indicates but small understanding of the present position of our affairs. EDRIE FBEDEEICK: GIFFORD, Baron Gifford of St. Leonards, is a grandson of Sir Robert Gif- ford, Zt., the first Baron, a distinguished lawyer who was raised to the Peerage in 1824. The pre- sent holder of the title was bora in 1849. He entered the army and accompanied Sir Garnet Wolseley to Ashantee, serving as aide-de-camp to that distinguished general from the ca...

I This evening, in the House of Commons, Sir Charles Dilke, the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs, in reply to a question regarding the state of the relations between the Porte and the Great Powers, said that, during the progresa of the negotiations recently carried on, it had been suggested by the several Powers that, with a view to obtaining the consent of _ the Sultan to the proposed frontier changes, a joint undertaking should he given, guaranteeing hint the whole of the remaining portions of his ter» ritory, on condition that he formally yielded to the decisions of the late Conference. He fur- ther added that the Government, recognising ' the justice of the above proposal, had notified its acceptance of the principle. The proposal has not yet been submitted to the Sultan, bat will probably be so at an early date. MR. GLADSTONE'S HEALTH. London, August 12. Mr. Gladstone, ...

THE "INQUIRER'S" SCHEME OF TAXATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 August 1880

THE "INQUIRER'S" SCHEME OE TAX- ATION. To the Editor of the "West Australian. Devr Si«,-As the question of taxation is just now brought prominently before the pub- lic, I trust you will find space for a few remarks on that subject. Your contemporary, the In- quirer iu this day's issue, has gone largely into the matter,-and no doubt considers the scheme proposed in his leading article a masterpiece of wisdom,-in fact, quite an important discovery ; namely how to pay off the deficit in an easy, practical, and simple manner, by the entirely novel process of completely crippling the chief industries of the colony-in fact the only in- dustries that keep the country afloat, vis., wool, pearl shells, timber, and minerals. In my opinion-and I should say in the opin- ion of every sensible man-nothing could be more suicidal than the policy advocated by the Inquirer. "With regard to wool, I have had several years experience both as a producer, and from being connected in business with pro- duc...

FRIDAY, AUGUST 13. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 August 1880

FRIDAY, AUGUST 13. The SPEAKER took the chair at 7 p.m. Bunbury Jabead: Timbee Co. (Limited.) Mr. CAREY, in accordance with notice, moved that the House resolve itself into a committee of the whole, to consider the petition of the directors of the Bunbury Jarrah Timber Co., praying for certain eoncossions. Agreed to. In committee : Mr. CAREY said lion, members would observe, on reference to the petition, that the concession asked for by the comrjany was the exclusive right to cut timber upon some 4000 acres of land in the Wellington district and to have four reserves, of forty acres each, granted to them within that aroa, at the usual rental of ten shillings per acre. T he company did not ask to have this land alienated, but leased for a terur of fourteen years, paying for the same ¿it the rate paid by Mr.*M. C. Davies for the land granted to him for the same purpose. The compauy also asked that the timber which they hereafter exported should be exempt from export duty, but he did n...

THE CLERGY AND THE MARRIAGE LAWS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 August 1880

TUE CLERGY AND THE MARRIAGE LAWS. To TUE ElUTOE OF THE WEST AuSTB.AI.TAX. Si h.-It was not my purpose to have tres- passed on your columns again, but the assertion made by Mr. Laurence, that '. the Standard is the proper place for the full discussion of the attitude of the clergy towards the question of marriage with a deceased wife's sister" requires qualification,-if indeed it be a question for further discussion in any newspaper, which I think may well be doubted, for it has been dis- cussed already, usque ad nauseam, for many years, and very recently in both Houses of the English Parliament. And it is not likely that the learning or experience of any one in this colony will tend to the elucidation of a subject on which so many learned and able men still differ. Moreover the decision, so far as the Protestant Episcopal Church in this colony is concerned, rests with the Synod and the Bishop. I think that Mr. Laurence's letter is a suffi- cient proof of the uselessness, if not evil...

POST CAEDS. To the Editor of tub West Australian. Sut,-Tbe colonial öecretary, wnen speaKing- un the Confirmation of Expenditure Bill, said with respect to the introduction of the postal card sys- tem, "But he regretted to say that the post card " system from which so much was expected, had " not been very generally adopted throughout the " colony. When first introduced it had the freah " ness of novelty-it was like a new toy placed in " a child's hand-the public were delighted with " it, but now that the novelty of the thing had " worn off the public had neglected it almost en "tirely," etc., etc. Had the bon. gentleman said, when first intro- duced the price was only a penny each, but that the Government, thinking they had granted too great a boon to the public, afterwards raised the price to one penny half-penny for a single one, or one shilling and three pence per dozen, ai>d from that time the sale had fallen off, he would have stated the real facts of the case.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL REPLIED TO. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 August 1880

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL REPLIED TO. I To Tire Editor of the West Austbaltax. I Sir.-JNot long ago j'ou published a j euer from a Government official to the head of his de- partment, impugning the honesty and integrity of a numerous body of the settlers of this co- lony ; and the statements contained therein were found to be utterly unjustifiable. Again, a high official, the Acting Attorney General, in his place in the Legislative Count-il is reported to have said : " Sometimes they heard-he had " heard it lately,-of magistrates who sat " in petty sessions, coming into court with their '' votes in their pockets." Mr. Acting Attorney General could give no names-in fact, he chose to throw this indiscriminate censure based it appears on mere rumour, on a large body of re- spectable men, who hold highly responsible positions among their fellow-colonists. I will ask any impartial person, who read that speech of the highest law officer of the Crowu in the IIousc, whether it did not give him r...

"AUSTRALIAN" UNJIASKED. To TUE Editok of the "West Austbaliax. Deae Sir,-1 take the earnest opporti-micy o£ appearing from behind " the "broad shield oc anonym," -under cover of which I am charged by " Alicnus" with shooting arrows at men whom I might fear lo meet openly in the field. I am surprised that " Alienus" should himself have followed a practice which he so strongly con- demns in others, and, I expect that he will now follow the example I set, by throwing off that shield. I have read the report of the Crown Commis- sioners, and many others upon the subject of the aboriginal natives ; but, as these reports are so entirely at variance with the opinion of all prac- tical men upon the subject, I have come to the conclusion that the " good results" shown are more apparent than real. I base my opinion upon the substantial and trustworthy stand of " experience," and claim as my jury all who have had like experience-not in the least fear- ing the verdict. Can "Alicnus," or any one ...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, AUG. 17, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 August 1880

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, AUG. 17, 1880. Mr. Store's amendment to the District Boards Act 1871 amendment Bill, will pro- bably cause much dissatisfaction in country districts. We do not think however, that such dissatisfaction will have any just foundation. The clause first proposed, by Mr. Marmion, which provided that no moneys should be granted to any local board which had not levied rates upon the property within the district it administered -was certainly objectionable, and in our opinion a very mistaken way of attaining the object in view, which was simply that the general revenue should be relieved of burdens which arc not properly chargeable upon it. It was not contended by the sup- porters of Mr. MiUtairoN's clause that the up-keep of the main roads should not-un- der present circumstances-be defrayed out of the public revenue. It would therefore seem quite unnecessary to do more than provide that the annual grants for roads should be devoted to m...

SIR.-In the Inquirer of the 21st ulto., a let- ter appears, from one who attended a public meeting at Albany on the qnestion of modifying the port charges at this place, which requires both explanation and correction. In the first place the writer is honest enough to own that the P. & O. Company entered into the contract to call here with the full knowledge of what they had to pay as light' dues, etc. He then goes on to say that he thinks " some considera " tiou should be shewn them" from the fact that " they could not have been aware of another " line of steamers being subsidised to oppose " them, such subsidy being so much per annum " pilotage, etc., free of charge and the use of the " telegraph lines for reporting (a concession " capable of a deal of stretching)."
