The Directors of the Commercial Bank. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
The Directors of the Commercial Bank. It would appear that Mr. TAELTOU'S explanation* to the shareholders of the Commercial Bank has not been taken in very good part. A telegram which we publish elsewhere indicates a determina- tion in certain quarters to hold the di- rectors responsible for the flourishing bal- ance sheet which they issued when the bank Was if not really in an insolvent state, at all events in no position to pay a '. > dividend. If the angry shareholders per- sist in their course, matters may yet go . very hard with the directors. There can be no doubt of their being responsible . beth in law and reason for the statement» 1 made in the report at the last annual ? &lt; meeting. If they are not so, the very object and pnrport of their appointment 1 - would be defeated and nullified, and their functions reduced to a formal farce. The law of the question has been set airest ' by the litigation that grew up round the City of Glasgow Bank failure. While ; the ...
The Western Mail. SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1886. SETTLERS WE DO NOT WANT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
SATURDAY, MARCH 27, 1886. SETTLERS WE DO NOT WA.NT. THERE seems to be no possibility of denying that a certain number of visitors to our shores have returned to the Eastern Colonies, and especially to South Australia, bearing anything but reassuring or encouraging reports of the land iu which, for a while, they bad pitched their tents. It is not difficult, we fancy, to gauge the true characters of these birds of passage or the value of their tales. We are led to suppose that these grumblers count« ed upon finding in Western Australia a veritable Canaau flowing with mi k and honey ; a Paradise where mao's many wants might be gratified with- out having recourse to such coarse, and underbred expedients as honest toil; where probably these interest- ing travellers, coming from a colony which refused to recognise their real worth, or to give them work, would find the population of this side of Australia flocking to the water side to welcome such desirable acquisitions to our people. It i...
Couldn't Stop that Boy. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
Couldn't Stop that Boy* Bomeyn, a Montclair, iv. J., boy, aged 5, converses with his friend of equally mature years, as follows : Bomeyn-"My pa is going- to get me a goat." Fairchild-"I've got twenty goats." B.-" Where are they ?" F.-"Oh, they're down in New York in pa's office." B-«? Whey don't they bring them here ?" F.-"They're siok." A pause. Finally Bomeyn speaks : "I saw Anthony's Nose last summer." Fairchild-" I saw Anthony himself." . B.-" Anthony's Kose is a rock, and it "broke off and fell into the water." F.-" I saw it falL" Bomeyn's mother, an interested listener, at this point deemed it expedient to interpose with a moral lesson. "Why, Fairohild," said she *' " did you never hear of Ananias «nd Sapphira ?" F.-" I knew them both." B.'s mother-" You know, Fairchild, they vere struck dead for telling lies." F.-" Yes, I saw them struck." B.'s mother-"Fairchild, do you know where they went ? (Very impressively)-They went to hell." F.-" I know it. I saw them go."

Selection by Flowers. At a London dinner party the other even- ing the ladies entered one room and the gentlemen another. In each room there iras a basket of flowers, and the ladies were v. asked to make choice of a flower from the ; basket, the flowers being all different. The gentlemen went through a similar proceed- ing in another room, and, on the ladies enter- ing the drawing-room, the gentlemen and ', ladies saw how chance J§ d assorted them.
Dairy Pork. [OBSERVER.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
Dairy Pork. [OBSERVER.] j Tire pig in essentially a part of tbe dairy equipment, and when we speak of dairy pro- duce we alwayB include hams and bacon in the list. Pigs that are bred and fed at a dairy, give us pork of very superior quality, and the title "prime dairy-fed pork " carries its own recommendation to the purchaser. It is an admitted fact that pig6 whioh are fed upon slops and offal will produce a meat that not only wastes very considerably in the cook- ing, but it will also possess a disagreeable flavour, qualified by the character of the food upon which the pig has been accustomed to live. In dairy'fed pork there is very little waste in cooking, and the flavour is sweet and "nutty." Where there are cows kept for milking, certainly there should he pigs somewhere nigh, to use up profitably that I which otherwise would be wasted. We can- not even think of a dairy without pigs (and fowls) in connection with it. We can under- stand how a farmer can rear pigs whioh cost so mu...
Our Staple Exports. [ADELAIDE Observer.] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
Our Staple Exports. [ADELAIDE Observer.] We lay before oar readers this morning the fourth part of our annual statistical tables. The necessity for the publication by us of these returns is enhanced by the fact that they are not given in the Government Gazette. They represent a large amount of careful work, and the information supplied by them is, moreover, of a sufficiently important character, as showing at a glance the position of our export trade, to justify the trouble taken in presenting them te the public. Table I. gives a general view of the trade of Great Britain and her dependencies. From this it appears that Australasia, with its large proportion of exports and imports to population of £32, is a good first. Guiana comes next, with a rate per head of £20 15s., and Great Britain is third with £1$ 16s. It has to be borne in mind, however, as regards Australia that the total represents the trade between the colonies as well as the external trade. Were Australia to be federate...
A Youthful Martyr. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
î * A Youthful Martyr. j The minister had preached a sermon on Sacrifice," in which he urged the benefit of v-. giving up some cherished pleasure for the vv cause of religion. Xittle Tommy has listened ;. thoughtfully, and bis mother thought she would find out how deep an impression the sermon had made. " Don't you think, Tom- my," said she, " that you could give us some oberished delight, some pleasure that you - : value, in a good cause ?" " Yes," said Tommy, " I think perhaps I might." r " Well," said the mother, greatly gratified at his religious interest, "well, Tommy, and ' ? what pleasure do you think you had better v give up." "I don't know," said Tommy, thoughtfully. "Supposing I should give up going to « churcb ?"
Not a Suspicious Person. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
Not a Suspicious Person. A patrolman on Second Street pulled the bell of a house at ten o'clock the other even- ing and said to the lady who came to the door : " Madam, a man whose actions are very suspicious has just entered the yard by the alley gate. " Wouldn't it be well for me to search the premises ?" "Oh,no, sir, she sweetly replied. "'That suspicious person is my husband. When he comes home sober he enters at the front door. When he is tight he sneaks in at the bank gate. You need never raise an alarm over him."

Telegraphic News. LONDON, March 18. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
LONDON, March. 18. The statement that Messrs. Chant jberlain and Trevelyan have resigned is incorrect. They have simply disent ed from the proposal to entrust the -expenditure of the money required to buy out the Irish landlords to a Parliament established at Dublin, and .are hopeful that Mr. Gladstone will modify his scheme in this direction. Claims on the Commercial Bank are selling at ISs. in tho £. The idea .of resuscitating the Bank is ridiculed in financial cueles. -.

Farm and Station. Soft Eggs. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
' Soft Eggs. The cause of hens laying soft eggs is owing to not having sufficient shell-making materi- al in-their diet; this should be immediately 'Supplied. Lime riddlings, ground or broken or oyster Buells, ground old dishes or crooks, or bones, will be eagerly eaten by the fowls, , «ad will shortly remedy the evil of laying eggs without shells. A slight tonic should be given, which should be supplied by leav- ing an old rusty nail or two in the drinking water. The water would thus become im- pregnated with iron, and the required tonic - -would be obtained. Hens should be given plenty of change of food, also a good supply of vegetables. A swede or mangel wurzel .thrown down oscasionally is eaten with in- tense relish, and cabbage leaves and turnip tops are generally eagerly devoured. Boiled potatoes are a good vegetable, and may be .given either alone or mixed with meal, lt must be the object to keep the fowls in good ^general health, and this will tend to make ?tbemgèaj freely g...
The Land Laws, N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
The Land Laws, N.S.W. The aew N.S.W. land law is still on its "trial says the Queenslander, and in regard to 'v some features of the Act there is probably no part of the colony where the measure has ..had a better trial than in Eivorina. And this is particularly the case with regard to . . the operation of tue homestead lease system. This has always been looked upon as one of "the most important and valuable priuciples in the statute ; even the opponents of the Act os a whole admitting that it was a grand step in advance to have provided for the requirements of a yeomanry class, to .form the connecting link between the shepherd kings on the one hand aud the cockatoo selectors on the other. That the .offer of a 10,000-aere block at a merely nominal rent would attract a large number .of applicants was from the first a foregone conclusion ; aud expectation ia this respect was not disappointed, the liberality of the Legislature meeting with a hearty response ..from all pures of th« colo...
THE LABOUR MARKET IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
THE XÀBOUE MARKET IN WESTEJSN AUSTRALIA. FROM THE WEST MTSTBAIiIAN.. THERE are no social phenomena more curious and unintelligible io Australia than the fluctuations of the demand for labour. No two colonies appear to be in the same position at the one moment. If in one there is a glut of labour, its neighbour will, most probably, record a tale of employers at their wits' end, and works languish- ing for want of men. And a remark- able fact about the problem is that no colony remains for long in one list or the other. A regular cycle of change seems to pass over the group. If a col- ony is understocked now, we may pre- dict with a fair certainty of its coming true, that it will be suffering from an under supply in a very brief period. For example, a dozen of years ago j Queensland was crying out for work- men of all descriptions. Then for a long era New South Wales advanced by leaps and bounds, presenting, in- deed, the most remarkable picture of. rapid growth in wealth and populati...
NICOL BAY. NO. 4. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886
NICOL BAY. NO. 4 (By BUCOLIC.) Shortly after settling the Pyramid an exploring expédition was organised on that ?station to examine tho country in a south ?erley direction, more particularly the Ash- burton which river had "been crossed by Gregory about 200 miles above the sea, where it looked so promising that the ex Slorer regretted being uuable to follow its ownward course. The party now organ- ised consisted oï Messrs. L. L. Mount, A. E. Anderson, T. C. Murray and E. T. Hooley. They left Withnell's on the Harding in May 1865 taking four riding and four pack horses and following the Harding upwards for two days crossed some very rough stony ranges which brought them out on the now famous table land. This country totally differ- ed from the level plains along the sea coast, consisting of undulating slopes of rich choccolate soil of great depth but covered on the surface with a coating of ?small stones, (quartz and trap) which ap- pear to have been rained down from above.
