SALVATION ARMY ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
SALVATION ARMY ANNI VERSARY. Services to celebrate the anniver sary of the establishment of the Sal vation Army in Bunbury were held last Friday, Saturday, and Sun day last. Captain Ada Rien had hand-bills circulated notifying the celebrations, aud on Friday night the train from Perth brought down Staff-Captain and Mrs. E. Knight, Ensign and Mrs. Walter Prance, the Perth Brass Band (about 18 in number), under Lieut. Walter Bensley, and Capt. Elder, who was lately in charge in Bunbury. Quite a number of our towns-people awaited the arrival of the train at the usual hour to see the expected Salvationists but as the train was nearly two hours late and the weather was unfavorable many had to go home without seeing the band. The new arrivals, about 20 in number, proceeded immediately to the residence of Mr. Baldock, where they were sumptuously entertained, and then hurried off to keep their en gagements at the Masonic Hall, which notwithstanding the unpropitious state of the weather, was...

RICH DISCOVERY AT COOL GABDIE.

The reef has been worked some time, and one month ago was down 30ft, at which depth it was a solid well-defined reef between 3 ?«nd 4 feet wide. The reef has been opened up in the adjoining lease, over a mile in length, with, at intervals, enormous crops of good battery stone. Very good alluvial has been found in the vicinity of the reef, alongside of which runs a creek,...

THE BICYCLE CONTEST. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
THE BICYCLE CONTEST. ? ? -v Mr. Edward Maxted went down to the Vasse on Tuesday week last by the coach, taking with him his bicycle, to be in readiness for tho bicycle race between himself and Mr. Alfred Payne, which was arranged to come off at 2 p.m. After Mr. Maxted arrived at the Vasse, he went for a spin on his bicycle, and was caught in a heavy shower of rain, from the effects of which he took a chill, and was consequently laid up. On Friday he was a little better, and sent a tele gram to Mrs. Maxted, informing her of his illness, and his inability to race Mr. Payne on the following day. His illness developed into a very severe attack of influenza, and Dr. Hunger ford, the Medical Officer recently ap pointed to the Vasse, attended him, and ordered him not to race. Con sequently, the event that was looked forward to with very great interest, fell through.. Under such circum stances, we fully expected that the race would be postponed, but we regret exceedingly that Mr. Payne and ...
Opening of Masonic Hall. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
Opening' of Mas onic ? Hall. -f~ ? The ceremony of the opening oc the new Masonic Lodge Building in Bun bu?.y, took pi ace to-day, and was a complete success. The brethren of the Ancient and Honorable Order must be congratulated on the splendid edifice they have had erected. We have, on the occasion of th e cei emony or laying the foundation stone of the building in January last, given full particulars of its dimensions, which, as we then stated, is not only highly creditable to the members' of the Wellington Lodge, but also an orna ment and acquisition to the town of Bunbury. The want oc a suitable hall for balls and entertainments in our town has long been felt, and this want is now fully supplied. Since the building has been handed over to the Order, and even before it left the hands of the contractors, the spacious hall had been engaged for various engagements for which the Mech anics' Institute hall space was too limited. It was found to be most suitable, and the acoustic prope...

THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, JULY 12, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
THE BUIMeiJRY HERALD, WEDNESDAY, JULI 12, 1893. The buoyant tone and cheering tenor which, cliai^acterised His Ex cellency's speech, at the opening of the fourth session of the first Par liament of the new Constitution, will go far to dissipate the tran scient cloud of depression that has lately obscured the even tenor of the country s progress. There was little that was new, and less to take objection to in the retrospect of the position of the colony, and the favorable horoscope of its im mediate future, whilst the legisla lative work of the session embraces several measures calculated to prove of a great practical utility, The superlative tense in which the agricultural, pastoral, and mining interests of the country were re ferred to, authenticated as it was from every reliable source, is es pecially acceptable and encourag ing at this depressed period in the financial history of the colony, and bids fair to speedily restore the equilibrium of the Mercantile and Banking Instituti...
THE SALVATION ARMY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
THE SALVATION ARMY. To the Editoe of The Heeald. Sir, — The Salvation Army seems to have paid all their expenses and more, down from Perth and back, and all this out of the pockets of the people of Bunbury. I made inquiries, and was informed on good authority, that the sum collected during their visit, both in the hall and on the street, amounted to £25, leaving a balance of about £10 to the credit of the Army. I notice, sir, that our churches here want funds, and I wonder if any of them could collect such a sum so easily. 1 am, sir. SURPRISED.

KELLY APPEAL CASE. THE QUESTION OF JURISDICTION. PERTH, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
KELLY APPEAL CASE. ? * ? THE QUESTION' OF JURISDIC TION'. [By Telegraph.] (Fkom Our Ows Correspondent.) '' Perth, Tuesday. The question of jurisdiction of the Court to hear the Kelly Appeal Case was raised in the Supreme Court to day. Judge Stone held, after argument, that he had no jurisdiction to hear the case, as it was not entered in the March Sitting of the Full Court. ? Mr. Haines said he could not do so as the magistrates had not returned the conviction in time. The judge stated that if Kelly suf fered by reason of the non-return of the conviction, he had an action against the magistrates. However, he would reserve the questions raised, by Haines whether he was not bound by the order of the Fall Court to hear the case. In the meantime proceedings are stayed. The Court will hear the case on the 19th.

Boyanup. BOYANUP, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
B/VTTQl '»'!- TS YTl [From Our Correspondent.] Boyanup, Tuesday, The want of punctuality of the train service here is . simply disgrace-' ful. The few trains per week we are, favored with are timed to. reach here: at 9.45 a.m., and ? 2.45 p.m., but rarely or never arrive until 15, 20, or sometimes 30 minutes later. The distance between Bunbury and Boyanup is only lof miles, and it that little journey cannot be accom plished in three-quarters-of-an-hour, the sooner the time table is altered the better. As it is, passengers have to wait in the slush under foot, and the rain overhead, an indefinite time, whereas were the trains punctual ;they would be comfortably seated, and safe from the weather. On Saturday the Government gang were at work here finishing the points of a siding on to the new rail way line, and yesterday (Monday), platelaying commenced. So far, however, work is only going on slowly, but before the week end things will hum a bit here. A special train came out yesterday ...
