THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 1893. THE DEVIATION FIASCO. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 28 June 1893
THE BUfSSBURY HERALD WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 1893. THE DEVIATION FIASCO. Both Bunbury and Vasse nave in the past been characterised as apathetic communities ; this op probious epithet however, can no longer be applied to us in view of the prompt, energetic, and practical action adopted bv these towns to protect the interest of these dis tricts from an attack that, how ever well intended, cannot but be regarded as perilous to our own in terests, and inimical to those of our neighbours in relation to the effort made to obtain a reconsideration of the subject of the question of the route of the Vasse Railway. A significant feature of the attempt to successfully organise an agita tion in favor of a deviation in the route of this line is the surprisingly sudden manner in which the sub ject was introduced to the public here. Until the announcement appeared, calling the meeting, no murmur of dissatisfaction had ever been heai'd in relation to the subject, and the effort so spon taneously evoke...

Boyanup. [From Our Correspondent.] Boyaxup, Tuesday. Things hei'e Have been rather dull lately owing, no doubt, to the re moval of the saw mill five miles near er Minninup. Just now we are likely to have a spurt, the adzer having ar rived, and ere this is in print, will be in full swine1 : but as thei'e is onlv room for 10,000 sleepers here, and the machine is capable of turning out 1000 a day, this will soon be over. Howevei', I hear that Messrs. 3yfield and Risely will be ready for plate laying in about a week, when we shall have a good complement of men down here.

The exact age of the deceased is not known, but he must have been close on 80 years, as he has been in the Vasse district quite 40 years, and had spent fully 30 at Quindalup.
