THE WEST AEST1ÄMM. VioiiAKa ET AUDAX PEBTR, TUESDAY, SEPT. le, 1880. THE report of the select committee ap- pointed to inquire into the over-expendi- ture for the year 1879 informs us that during that year £7,961 15s. 6d. was ex- pended in excess of votes for services pro- vided for in the Estimates, that services authorized by resolution of the Council caused an expenditure of £5,783 5s. yd. over and above the appropriation made, while £7082 18s. 6d. was spent without any authorization whatever. Also that in addition to these sums £14,243 10s. 6d. was disbursed without any legislative sanction for various works connected with the Northern Railway, in excess of the £17,000 which had been provided by loan for the completion of this under- taking. This report, together with the numerous explanatory returns which ac- companied it, was not brought up until the last night of the session, and considering that no more than a hurried glance at its contents was possible, previous to the seco...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7. COMMISSION TO INQUIRE INTO DEPARTMENTAL EXPENDITURE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 14 September 1880

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7. COMMISSION TO INQUIRE INTO DEPARTMENTAL EXPENDITURE. Mr. STEERE, with leave, without notice, moved that an humble address be presented to His Excellency the Governor, praying that he will be pleased to appoint a Commission to in- quire, during the recess, into the whole question of departmental expenditure, in order that the House at its next session may be in possession of such correct information as will enable mem- bers to judge whether any reduction in this expenditure can be effected without detriment to the public service ; and that such Commission shall consist of unofficial persons. Mr. RANDELL suggested there should be at least one Government official on the Commis- sion. The ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL : I shall oppose the motion. It looks to me like a reflection upon those who happen to be in the service of the Crown. The wording of the resolution is capable of that construction ; but at the same time I should hope the hon. member fo...

ÍS BRITISH AND FOREIGN. THE CAKDAHAH DISASTER AVENGED. LONDON, Sept. 3. Intelligence has just been received from General Boberts, announcing that he attacked Ayoub Khan with his entire force yesterday, and, after a desperate engagement, succeeded in carrying the enemy's positions, notwithstand- ing their having been rendered additionally strong hy the earthworks which had been pre- viously thrown up. The enemy made a most gallant defence, hut was completely crushed, and his forces dispersed in every direction. General Boberts captured no less than twenty seven of the enemy's guns-comprising, in fact, Ayonb Khan's entire artillery. General Phayrc is advancing towards Can dahar with 5000 chosen men, and with three batteries of artillery, and is expected to arrive at Candahar tomorrow.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 September 1880

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE ? To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-Possibly to the recent eouflict between the Roads Boards and the Government may be attri- buted the following instance of culpable neglect, to which, in the interests of many inhabitants of the Swan District, I must beg you will give publicity. For a long time past, the bridge (generally known as Barker's) across the Swan near this town has" been in a state which urgently required repair. The authorities at length made a move in the right direction by procuring sawn timber to replace the defective flooring, but, with a curious exccrcise of discretion-although there was plenty of room elsewhere-had it stacked in heaps on each side of the roadway between the handrails of the bridge, so as to terrify shy horses, and thus increase the danger of crossing. Some six or eight weeks ago, the timber began to arrive, aud as no repairs have yet been com- menced, the person or persons responsible for the state of the bridge appear t...

THE COUNCIL AND THE EASTERN DISTRICTS RAILWAY. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 September 1880

THE COUNCIL AND THE EASTEEN DISTRICTS RAILWAY. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAR SIR,-Never before in the history of this or any other colony has a moro deplorable mistake been made than that made by our legislators in deciding, that, when the Eastern Railway is to be carried beyond Guildford, it is to go direct to York. I do not profess to know anything about railways, but I think I am right in supposing that the more they have to carry the more they are likely to pay, and that to insure freight for a line it should pass through the best and most settled districts in a country. York represents about one-third of the Eastern districts, and, being situated at almost the most Southern end, the districts lying North will derive no benefit from the proposed railway, which will pass through perfectly worthless country from Gaildford to York the whole way, -notwithstanding Mr. Burt's assertion in Council that there is "some good agricultural land there." (No one except Mr. Burt h...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) TOODYAY, Sept 7th. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 September 1880

Ê8IÎÎTOY LETTEIS (From our own correspondents.) TOODYAY, Sept 7th. The decision of the Council with regard to the railway to these districts has given much dissatisfaction. Of what use would a railway to York be to the Toodyay people ? It is nearly as far from Newcastle to York as to Guildford. I do not suppose there will be two lines run, one to York and one to Toodyay ; but the Tood- yay people are going to protest against the pro- posed route. There is a memorial already going round, that will be signed by every man in Toodyay and Northam. "We are all in favour of the Spencer's Brook line, and, what is more, intend to have it. I have been told that the Rev. Mr. Pidcock has resigned his position as secretary to the Toodyay School Board. This is to be regretted.. I do not know any one in the district more com- petent to fill the office. Your correspondent " I.O.G-.T." is not civil. I can assure him that he does not know every- thing. I may say that there was no notice posted up abo...

MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 September 1880

MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-It is, I think, to be regretted that the question of marriage with a deceased wife's sis- ter was not permitted to rest until the decision of the Metropolitan Synod .shall have been received, as I see no more reason than before to hope that any new light will be reflected on it by the learning or ability of controversialists in this colony. If Mr. Laurence is satisfied in having shown the difficulty of altering Church rules,-which however I am not aware that he has done,-it was at best a work of supereroga- tion, for who is ignorant that " non possumus " is as familiar to other Churches as to that of Rome, or that the only alteration which is ever conceded is by accumulation. The odium theo logicum I leave to him, having personally no interest in the question other than a love of truth for its own sake. But I must again-to use his own ' expression; be it ecclesiastical, legal, or nautical-" traverse his...

THE WEST MSTIAMAN. VlOILAKS ET AtTîAX PÉRTHTFRIBAY, SEPT. 17, 1SS0. TAKING the late session as a whole, and looking at it from a " broad and compre- hensive point of view," it cannot but be re- garded as the most satisfactory which has taken place since the establishment of Re- presentative Government. It has indeed been singularly barren in useful legislation of the ordinary kind-far more barren than any previous session we remember. The measures which the Government introduc- ed scarcely call for remark, and the only Act of undoubted usefulness which has pass- ed into law is one brought in by a private member-the consolidation of the Wines, Beer, and Spirit Sale Acts,-a measure greatly needed, and for the careful prepar- ation of which both Government and coun- try owe their grateful acknowledgements to the member for the Murray and Williams, acknowledgements which, so far as the Go- vernment is concerned, have been somewhat charily rendered. The Judicature Act, to which alone was...

8KASI8MA1ÏMTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. A COBEESPOÎÎDEXT " Fair Play" draws at- tention to the case of a man called Boswell who was brought up at the Bunbury Court-house charged with stealing money from a " cockatoo farmer." When Boswell made his appearance in Court one side of his face was completely covered with severe bruises. From what transpired it appeared that this « as due to the se vere handlinghe had received from the police. Our correspondent says that the public wish to know whether any in- vestigation of the case has taken place. We ore informed that Boswell, who was supposed to be suffering from the effects of drink, was ordered some medicine by Dr. Lovegrove. When the policeman entered his cell with this medicine, Bos- well flew at him and attacked him fiercely. The policeman knocked the prisoner down, and is supposed in so doing to have caused the bruises which our correspondent noticed. He there- upon immediately reported the circumstance. Boswell however, when interroga...
