MR. STINTON & THE GREENBUSHES TIN DEPOSITS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 28 June 1893
MR. STINTCN $ TEE GREEN BUSHES TIN DEPOSITS. ? 6 ? To the Editoe of The Heeald. Sir, — The new - fledged geologist and mineralogist of five years' expe rience must be one of the wonders of the age when he takes on to describe the extent and true bearing of the alluvial deposits of the Greenbushes tinfield.s ; and he has the audacity to say that the mineral area is far larger than is necessary to cover all the al luvial deposits of the field, simply, as he says, because the tin has not been carried any distance from its parent rock. How absurd to say that the proclaimed mineral area is larger than is necessary to cover the alluvial tin deposits. As a matter of fact, to do justice to the tin industry, I am of opinion that the mineral area should be extended to the Preston River in a northerly direction, and to the Blackwood River in a southerly direc tion. I am confident, from practical knowledge, that stream tin does exist and will be found and worked in the course of time ; and it i...
Education Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 28 June 1893
Education Reform. By Uno. The deliverance of Bishop Gibney at Albany -would, in. ordinary course, have claimed the attention of your contributor, had it not been so ably dealt with in your contemporary, the West Australian. There is scarcely any need to refer to the fact, that it is the religious element alone, that is «8he bug-bear in the path of Education Reform. There is still a hope to be entertained from utterances such as M. Satonelli's, that the Woman Catholic Party may be brought into accord with a National system, not deemed ' godless.' All of the com munity evince a strong desire to have the system based on religious in struction ; the chief difficulty is re conciling the Catholic Party to an acceptance of a general scheme. The Act in force in New South Wales is, however, admirably adapted to over come, that difficulty, and, as the provisions of that Act are generally Cn tTT-all lr-r»r-wn if. 1Q nPPfilpKS TOP Hie to quote them in t\.~~~'*° r*y*w or ~an article on religious...
MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 28 June 1893
MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY. The usual fortnightly meeting of the Mutual Improvement Society was held on Wednesday evening last, in the Templars' Hall, Mr. Woodrow presiding. Owing to the membei'S not having' been notified in due time of the new place of meeting, tnere was but a meagre attendance. Messrs. Brashaw, Collins and Cooke were elected members. In the absence of the secretary, the chairman explained the business transacted at the previous meeting, held on May 20th. He referred to the difficulty the society experienced ever since its formation, in securing a suitable room to hold the meetings, as the Mechanics' Hall could not be placed at their disposal, and in consequence of the hall being xised for other purposes, the regular meetings were continually interfered with . The committee submitted a pro posal for the Good Templars Lodge, and after some discussion it was decided that the committee be em powei^ed to act for the Society in this matter, and arrange, if possible, wit...
THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION AND TEE VASSE RAILWAY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 28 June 1893
THE PROGRESS ASSOCIATION AND THE VASSE RAILWAY. To THE 'Rdttdti nv Ttttc TTtct? * T.n Sir, — I think you must have had a very entertaining evening at the monthly meeting of the Bunbury Progress Association on the discus sion of the divergence of the Boyanup Vasse Railway, and more especially when strangers to the country get up and set forth the beautiful rich coun try Eiiat certain railway lines would open up^ and who would make a man believe the that such lands were worth £10 an acre, Such men as these put me in mind of the labor agitators who want stringing up by the neck to bring them to their senses. I would tell Mr. Marshall that he knows no more about the capabilities or extent of the soil at the Capel than his goose. I see he stated that the present line ran through a .small portion of good land. Admitting this to be the case, it is all Govern ment land, and will be free for selec tion. He further states that if the , divergence was made as he suggested large allotments of l...
