MR. PRICE WILLIAMS INTERVIEWED. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

MR. PRICE WILLIAMS INTER- VIEWED. Mr. Price Williams the eminent Eng lish engineer and surveyor reached Perth on Monday evening from England on a professional engagement ia connexion with the proposed Guildford-G-reenough. railway line. As some curosity existed BS to what the object of his visit really was, our reporter obtained an interview with Mr. Williams on the subject.. Asked what his mission was. Mr. Williams replied : My mission is simply to satisfy myself that the district proposed to be served by this new railway is of a character likely to make it prove renuroerative as a com- mercial undertaking. X have to ascertain whether the agricultural value of th* ' land will be such as will pay for working -that it will aot be a howling wilder- ness I have to decide whether those ' capitalists in London and elsewhere who are disposed to invest iu Mr. Wadding ton's scheme would ultimately find it a good investment. I will hist of all determine the route of the linc and then when I ...

Farm and Station. JUDGING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

JUDGING CALVES. -? Nothing more severely tries the skill of a breeder or tbe extent of his observation than his estimates of young stock at very early ages, ia "connection with the after results which justify or falsify those estimates. Many mea who can judge fat beasts cannot rightly judge animals in their lean state ; bat there are far mote men who can judge animals fat or lean, and. yet hit immensely wide of the mark in their guesses of the future merits of foals, calves, or other in* fanta of thc farm. Their difficulty, how- ever, often proceeds from ignorance of' family antecedents. The written or printed particulars of family history they may know in the case cf pedigree cattle, but until they acquire a sight-and-toucU familiarity with their stock generation after generation, they cannot always tell the signs put out in an animals «arly life, analogous to the ap- pearances of the bud of a new or uuknown flower. As the practised florist can easily discern in the buds of his old...

A NEW WEEKLY JOURNAL. There is a general impression that the time lias coûte when a first class weekly paper, in a form somewhat dif- ferent from tim weeklies now in circu- lation, would prove a success in West' em Australia. Hitherto the weekly journals here have been but the Satur' day or Wedttesday issues of the |>- dailies. This want of a weekly on a r distinct footing, and acceptable to all \ ¿eetions of the population, the Propri- etor« of the "WEBT ATJSTBAMAM" have determined to endeavour to sup ply, by publishing every Saturday, a new paper to be called " THE WEST- ERN MAIL." The new journal will contain a re- print of so much of tho week's news from the " WEST AUSTRALIAN " as may be thought of general interest. Li addition it will have Original Ar- ticles, Notes, and Essays on various subject«, following, indeed, in all re- spects the example of similar weeklies in Eastern Australasia, Qreat atten- tion will be devoted to the Farm and Station, the fullest information bei...

The American Murderer. FROM AN AMERICAN CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

The American Murderer. FROM AN AMERICAN CORRESPONDENT. A man with a sensitive soul may ob- ject to an enforced idleness in a ten-by twelve cell, behind barred doors and grated window«. But, unless Ids soul is unduly sensitive, the position of an Am etican murderer is one which ho should ojjoy. In murder, as in the other fine arts, there are degrees. Should he hank- er after an excessive amount of notoriety -an extended biography, for instance, j with his picture in the " metropolitan" dailies (every city with a Baloon, a gamb- ling den, and a gaol is a metropolis in America) his viceB descanted On at length in thc flash journals, and. interviews ad libitum-thea let him select as his vic- tim a woman. His wife will do as well as any other. The more cold-blooded the crime the better for him. There is no necessity for him to give any immediate concern to that obtrusive gentleman po- pularly known as " Jack Ketch." Should a jury of his peers so far forget them- selves as to find a verdi...

Woe to the Bachelors. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

! Woe to the Bachelors, The bachelors are not to have it all their own way. In Victoria the advocates ot' a duty on all unwedded males have met with a success, in at least one chamber of the Parliament of that colony, as unexpected as it must be gratifying to the former, aud unpleasant to the latter. And now the news comes : from France of a proposition to collect I a similar tribute from the believers in ! singlo blessedness in that country. Mar- riages there do not increase, population is on the decline, aud to many people-especially the forlorn damsels whose wiles and charms have been set at nought - it seems unfair that selfish bachelors should be suffered to elude the duties of the married state, and not be made to pay for it. There are, it seems, not fewer than 2,000,000 men in Frauce who, with fair incomes and good health have, as they are told, no excuse for remaining single. To check this (from a feminine and therefore of course a national point of view) serious and growing...

Modern Talkers. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

Modern Talkers. Lord Hartington net long since made some remarks condemning the length at which the London dailies report the ; speeches of " those whom they are pleased \ to call the political leaders on both sides," but might it not be Asked whether they are not spoken at unnecessary length? Probably Lord Hartington would person- ally prefer not to speak at all, were he free to act as he pleased; but. just the teveree is true of the majority of politicians. Political speeches are becoming insup- portable long, while real eloquence gives little sign of that improvement which we are asked to believe always lol lows on the heel of continued practice. A public mun now-a-days gets up and talks as long as his physical strength will allow him, and that is called ' making a speech.' The fact is that to maintain a j high standard of speaking means care and I work, and work means time, and this few practical men can spare now-a-days. A man who cultivates oratory at the expense of more serio...

CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

CHRISTMAS. BY PHILOMEL. I PERHAPS not one of the few holidays j which falls to the lot of long-suffering mortals is the cauee of so much pleasure both in anticipation and realization as Christmas Day. To those who really do not know what hard work is, those gentle- men whose lives are all of the sit-at-home at-eaRe description, the Twenty Fifth of December probably presents much the same appearance as auy other day iu the year, perhaps a trifle more monotonous. But there is a multitude of iudividuafs in whose horizon Christmas Day forms the one rift of sunshine in the clouded atmosphere of toil. Eveu in Australia there are meu who seem to have no minute of the day whicli they eau safely call their owu, and who in the bitterness of their hearts assent io. Lamb when he assigns the invention of work to " Sabbathless Satan." But if for them a prospective holiday lights np the otherwise blank and wearisome outlook, they have still more unfortunate brethren to whom a day of rest appears a...

THE SCAB IN SHEEP ACT. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

j THE SCAB IN SHEEP ACT. To the Editor. SIB, Mr. Harper, ia his reply to my letter commenting on tho Scab Act, 1885, says,, that the seeming inconsistencies to which 1 point, are more apparent than reaL £ can hardly think so, and, certain it is, ha has not shown them to be such. He states that the clause was allowed to remain un- altered, on account of the difficulty sheep owners at the far North had in obtaining the necessary plant for dipping. Though 1 see no objection to the Inspector being given a large amount of. discretionary power in these cases, I think, we may very well question the policy of allowing a clause to be embodied in the Act, if it is merely to suit the convenience of one section of the community, to the great injury of the other. If it was deemed necessary, a special clause, to meet the requirements of the Northern settlers, should have been framed. Clause 10 does not ev/$ do that, notwithstanding Mr. Harper te^úa it was left in the Act for that parpóse» Let tts...

^ COMMERCIAL. Under date Nov. 13, Messrs.

These small lots have changed hands at prices somewhat more favourable to sellers than laßt Auction quotations. At Antwerp some 8,000 bales Australian Wool were sold at the end of last month at prices equal to closing rates of last London series. The french were purchasers for fully half of above quantity. About 22,000 bales Biver Plate Wool are now being sold at Auctions at Antwerp, and reports state a firmer tone and better prices are being realised. These cir- cumstances of themselves somewhat slightly indicate a more encouraging aspect of affairs. Added to this we have the fact to note that a revival in the French trade has set in, and from our own Woollen manufacturing centres .we hear of signs of increased activity. All...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 26 December 1885

CHAPTER II. Mrs. Ellis was happy and busy; «he prided herself on her good management, and it was not to be thought of that Madge should not be properly equipped as Oliver's bride. J3e came often to the iarm house, but Madge was shy of him, and he very rarely saw her alone. She grew pale and thin, and her farher would hold her lovely face between his palms and -ask with anxious questioning if she were weil. And she rarely left his aide when he was in the house; she sung about him, and be believed the .cause of her sadnt-ss was the thought of leaving him. Mrs. Ellis, with ex .emplary patience, bore with all -Madge's waywardness as she had 'm?er done before. She loved the, <jiri and wondered at her silence and j her sadness, when she ought to be so proud and happy. The possibility of 1 Madge not loving Oliver never entered her head. The wedding day diew near ; Madge's silence had given place to a boisterous gaiety that was as hard to understand as her sadness had bean. She w...
