Vasse. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 5 July 1893
Vasse. (From Our Correspondent.) Vas.se, Saturday. The action of the Busbuet Herald, in the matter of our railway, was much admired, and the residents here are very thankful for its exertions on their behalf. The adjourned meeting of the Vasse Race Club was held in the Weld Institute ? on Saturday last. There was a very fair number of members present. The hon. secretaxy read the minutes of the previous meeting, after which Mi*. Gale was elected to the chair, in lieu of the late Dr. Lepper. It was then re solved that Mr. John Bovell be re elected hon. secretary ; also, that the persons, whose names I sent you last week, be appointed to the various offices. Mr, M. Locke proposed that as the day for holding the next races had been fixed, the x'ace course should be improved at once. A considerable discussion ensued, respecting the present course, it being the opinion of sevei*al present that a better course could be obtained fully a mile nearer Busselton. It was finally resolved that th...
TEE GREENBUSHES MINERS PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. "ITS OBJECTS, AND HOW TO ATTAIN THEM." [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 5 July 1893
THE GREENB USHES MINERS PROGRESS ASSOCIATION. ' Its Objects, axd How to Attain Them.' The following paper was read by Mr. Dunstan the President of the Association at a meeting of the Ass ociation held last week, and a vote of thanks accorded by the members. If I have correctly gauged (and I think I have) the intention of the promoters of this association, the question which will have the first and most earnest attention of mem bers, will be those having reference to the industry by which we obtain a living. Legislative procedui*e will, of coux-se, be watched with interest, especially when ' mining laws' are under consideration in Parliament ; and this association will be well within its rights should its members desix'e to express an opinion on any proposed amendment or alteration of existing Mining Regulations. Local matters, such as roads, bridges, re sex*ves, 'railways,' water supply, etc., etc., will also have attention, and as a body, we shall have the right should occasion dem...
OUR AGRICULTURAL RESOURCES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 5 July 1893
OUR AGRICULTURAL RE SOL ECUS. ? v ? To tut? Editor of The Herald Sir. — I heard that great surprise was expressed by some of the pas sengers by one of the steamships at the large quantities of flour and oats being landed at Bunbury, when they had been led to believe that any quantity could be produced here. Is it. any great wonder that this is so, to anyone acquainted with agriculture, when they travel through this part of the colony, and observe the amount of labor that is required to clear the land that will produce corn of any description, and anyone acquainted with this part of the country knows thereare avery few acres of virgin soil that will bear anything of a crop without manuring. There are a few [ spots that will for a short time, but they are the exception — not the rule, and if the land under cultivation were not manured, it would never pay. Anyone travelling through this colony will perceive in an instant that there are no large tracts of clear land fit for cultivation,...

BENEFIT CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 5 July 1893
BENEFIT CONCERT. . ? ^- The first concert in the Masonic Hall was held on Thursday night, the proceeds of which are to be devoted to a fund for the repair of the Con gregational Manse. The attendance, we regret to say, was not large, and this is the more unaccountable con sidering the excellent programme which had been provided, including as it did all the leading stars among our amateurs, both vocal and instru mental. We can only say, with the chairman (Mr. TimperleyJ to those who stayed away that it waa a loss to them as much as to the promoters. The room was nicely hung round with flags, and on the front of the stage were placed some evergreens, which formed a very pleasing foreground. It may, perhaps, be unfair, con sidering that all did so well, to par ticularly mention the performance of anyone, bnt the singing of Mrs. Mit chell and Miss Teede, and the instru mental music supplied by Messrs. Parry and Hammley and Miss Foss would do them credit before any audience. At a few min...

I have the honor to be, Sir, Your Obedient Servant, Wir. Sfexceb, Mayor of Bunbury. The Secretary then read notices that had been served on Mes...

The balance-sheet was also read, showing a total of £107 2s, and a creditor balance of £3 16s, and the Government grant not yet received, of £25. Mr. Layman suggested that the printing was a large item, and that it should be cut down. Mr. Walters favoured suggestion, and said that one paper — the Western Mail — would be a good paper to ad vertise in, but he would leave it to the council. He then spoke of the prize that had been offered by Mr. Knox Browne : v...

Thos. Muir, G. W. Hester. .Tata. Incrlis. J. Curtz, Jas. Scott, F. Nix, Gh Hester, J. Mot tram, O'Neil, McKellar, Johnston, O'Toole, and others. The chairman, in opening the meeting, said he regretted to see such a poor attendance. Meetings of this character were instituted for the advancement of the district, and he hoped that in future these meetings would be much more numerously at tended. He then called upon the secretary (Mr. Inglis) to read the minutes of the previous meeting, but the secretary stated that he did not bring his books with him, as he did not expect there would be a meeting ; he called two previous meetings, but only two or three attended, and he did not expect he would be more suc cessful on this occasion. The chairman was under the im pression that it would be bett...
THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, JULY 5, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 5 July 1893
THE BUISSBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, JUL1 5, 1893. The Annual Ploughing Matches throughout the country districts of the colony are again occupying at tention. It may, therefore, not be out of place to enquire what steps are being taken to organise this ?customary festal outing here. Our Ploughing Matches have always in the past occupied an isolated and exceptional position to similar events at other places. The Agri cultural Societies of the various (districts, or some other public or ^recognised body have invariably -organised these matches, but for .some inexplicable reason, neither ?our Agricultural Society nor any other established organization have taken our Ploughing Matches under their auspices. The inevitable re sult has been that some public spirited individual in his private capacity has had to assume the in itiative and the responsibility. It is not surprising, therefore, to find that only of late years have these matches been carried on with any degree of regularity, and sec...
THE TIN DEPOSITS OF GRENNBUSHES. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 5 July 1893
TEE TIN DEPOSITS OF GRENNB USSES. Sir. — In my last, there were two slight mistakes. (1) This passage should have read — ' It (the granite) underlies to the west ; and on either side, running with it, are diorite dykes.' (2) ' I will give you a full detail of the different runs of Btream tin, where they are to be found, and where they are being worked ' ; not, ' how they are to be worked.' 1 have endeavored to show you the centre mass or lode matter (tin bearing granite) of this field. I wish you to understand this is not the only lode matter here ; there are several on either side, running parallel to this centre mass, but very much smaller, varying from two to three inches wide, all underlying to the west, The first charges or stream tin deposits were made in the glacier period, falling from north to south. All the old stream leads here are running about the same course. I will not define them out for you now but will next time. I will also show you where these old leads have been...
Municipal Council. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 5 July 1893
Municipal Council. The usual monthly meeting of tbe Bunbury Municipal Council was held on Monday evening, the Mayor in the chair, and there were also present: Crs. -Banting, Moore and Clarke. After the minutes had been read arid confirmed, The Mayor drew the attention of the Councillors to the fact that at the last meeting of the Council, Dr. Samp son had only asked leave to build the culvert. He mentioned this because several persons had asked him why the Council did not proceed with the work. The Council had nothing to do with building the culvert; they only gave Dr. Sampson the necessary permission to build it himself. The following correspondence was then read : Bunbury, June 20, 1893. To THE MATOE & COUNCILLOBS, Gentlbmbk, — I beg to acknowledge ro ceipt of your letter, dated 30th March, 1893. In reply I am instructed to asl you, in the event of the Government being in favor of giving the club the land applied for, will you havo any objection. It is our intention to car...
