PLOUGHING MATCHES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
PLOUGHING MATCHES. ? _-w_ ? __ To the Editoe of The Heeald. Sir. — If ploughing matches are of any earthly utility, they should in all reason, be held under the auspices of the various Agricultural Societies, as you indicated in your last leader. My opinion is that they serve no useful purpose whatever, beyond the dis tribution, of^ a few pounds to a deserving class of people. This op inion may seem rather immediate, but if I am wrong, I err in numerous as well as in good company — nearly all the Agricultural Societies of the other colonies, representing hundreds of thousands of practical and scien tific farmers. Land prettily and uni formly ploughed has nothing to do with the production of a good crop ; neither have width and depth of fur row — different conditions apply in different soib, etc. With a view to the best results in farming, we notice leading farmers everywhere directing their attention to a judicious system of letting out and fallowing and cropping alternately, and al...

THE TIMBER ON THE JETTY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
THE TIMBER ON THE JETTY. v ? To the Editoe of The Heeald Sir. — Could you tell me if our main jetty is a timber yai'd or a place to berth vessels calling at thisjjort ? I am afraid if the timber at the end of tho jetty is |not removed shortly, we shall lose our jetty altogether, and perhaps have a fatal accident also. Anyone on the jetty on Sunday night week, when the Bullarra came alongside, will bear me out in this statement ; for what with the large concourse of people and the timber on the end of it, how they were going to unload the horses, etc., of Wirths' Circus would puzzle a Philadelphian lawyer to tell. I really think that we have enough room at the approach to the jetty for the timber, until it is known definitely when it is to be shipped ; then, in my opinion, it is quite time enough to monopolize the ietty. I think, Mr. Editor, this is a grievance that ought to be seen to at once by the authorities, both for the safety of the general public, and our Govern ment property...

CHINESE EXCLUSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
CHINESE EXCLUSION. To the Editoe of The Heeald. Sir, — I was pleased to notice in the Governor's speech that steps will be taken to bring the Chinese Restric tion Act into comformity with the Eastern colonies ; the presence of Chinese in great numbers in our midst is a menace to society at large. The Chinese can neve? become an in tegral part of oar population. Their idea of 19th. century civiliza tion is diametrically opposed to our own. Their mode of living is incom patible with that of any other na tionality that take up their abode with us, and become a part of our selves. They marry and inter-marry amongst us, and regard the land of their adoption as their home, and it is manifestly unfair that our working men should be asked to compete with men who can live on a lew pence per clay, and who contribute so little to the revenue of the colony. The mo ment they acquire wealth enough to enable them to return to the Flowery Land, they make their exit, and take with them the gold out ...
Vasse. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
Vasse. (From Our Correspondent.) Vasse, Saturday. Dr. Hungerford, the newly ap pointed R.M. and Medical Officer, and his wife arrived here on Saturday last. For the present they are stay at the Vasse Hotel, and as he was not gazetted as R.M., he was unable to take over his duties. Mr. Stewart and his assistant re turned from Karridale the other day, having been busy during the past week removing the telegraph poles complained of by the Roads Board. He has also placed lightning rods on several of the poles, as a protection against lightning. Mr. C. J. Hough has now com pleted his contract for the re shingling of the church, and Mr. Fry is also making excellent progress with Mr. Sutton's new House on the beach. A very heavy storm passed over here on Thursday last, unroofing Mr. Bovell's hay shed, and doing con siderable damage to a wagon and other articles under the same roof. The cutter Blue Bell dragged her anchors a considerable distance, but fortunately did not go ashore. The ball...
Education Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
? 1 Education Reform By Uno. The danger of denominational con flict was pointed out in my last ar ticle as likely, in any scheme of Education Reform, to . result in a hackneyed system of morality teach ing in substitution for that based on the Christ-like principle — the spur ious for the true. The only other alternative will be a strictly secular course, which will never give satis faction to right-thinking men, who have the future welfare of the coun try and its people at heart. An effort in the same article was also made to show how the difficulty might be overcome by exercising a wise discretion. Certainly all Our clerics do not belong to the weak kneed class, who have not robust and 'vigorous thought enough to recognise the blind bigotry and folly of con founding denominationalism with religion. Should each denominational head recognise the impossibility of getting all men to think as he does, the attempt would be given up, as was done by the amateur watchmak ing king, and the ...
OUR TELEGRAPHIC SERVICE. PERTH, This Day. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
OUR TELEGRAPHIC SERVICE. [Br Telegraph.! (From Our Correspondent.) ?« Perth, This Day. The decision of the two Perth news papers to stop for the present all the telegraphic service, as announced yes terday is causing general consterna tion among the public. It is generally felt that the Govern ment is treating the papers of the Colony in an unfair manner. ^^ What is wanted is simnlv a fair ^ ' share of the advertising of the Co lony's requirements. The matter will probably be men tioned in Parliament. Mr. Robert Sholl gave notice in the Assembly of his intention to ask the Premier what the Government intend doing in view of the inconvenience to the public, owing to the nonpublica tion of Press telegrams ; and also moved for returns showing the sum spent by each paper in telegrams for the past six months, and other in formation. Perth, 4 p.m. This Day, Both the papers appeared to-day without a line of telegrams, either foreign, intercolonial or provincial. The inconvenience is greatl...
Local Court. TUESDAY, JULY 11TH. (Before W. H. Timperley, Esq. R.M.) [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 12 July 1893
; Local Court. TUESDAY, JULY 11th. (Before W. H. Timperley, Esq.R.M.) The cases of Delaney v. McNeil ; Crampton y. .Crampton, and Dela porfce v. Lovegrove, were settled out of court. Flotd v. Law. This case was .a claim for £12 cash lenfcjbutthere was no appearance of de fendant. The plaintiff stated that in March last he lent the defendant £12, and received an order for the money on the defendant's brother in Perth. This order was not honored, and the defendant 'admitted receiving the money in a letter to the plaintiff's solicitor, and also asking for the case to be withdrawn, as he would pay the money as soon as he received his re mittances. Judgment was given for the amount with costs. W. B. Mitchell Je. v. C. Hutchins.
