Vasse. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 19 July 1893
Vasse. — -* — (From Our Correspondent.) Vasse, Saturday. It would appear, from certain re marks contained in your issue of the 5th ^inst., that some of the Bunbury residents are not satisfied with the result of the late public meeting res pective- our railway, and intend petitioning Parliament on the sub ject, owing, as I am informed, to a letter that appeared in the Press some time since, over the signature of Mr. A. R. Richardson, It is a pity that Mr. Richardson did not raise his objection before,, when the matter was being discussed in the House, and not wait until after all the preliminaries had been gone through, and tenders called for the work. It most certainly would have looked more statesmanlike than to try and oppose it at present. I also noticed in a recent issue of the Southern Times, a paragraph, coming, as it was stated, from a correspondent at Bridgetown, backing up the Bun bury section, and endeavoring to make it appear that, the money would be far better spent -in ...
THE DISINFECTANT ORDER. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 19 July 1893
THE DISINFECTANT ORDER. By Victor. With thelaudable object of prevent ing the introduction of insects in jurious to plant-life, an Orderin Council Avas recently issued, provid ing for the compulsory dipping of all fruit trees, etc., brought from South Australia, the dipping material con sisting of not less than lib. of com mercial concentrated lye to every 2 gallons of water. While applaud ing this attempt to keep tho orchards and vineyards of this colony as clear as. possible, I must take objection to some matters in connection with it. First, why is the prod ace of South. Australia singled out? We are just as likely to receive diseased trees from other places, or from nur series in our own colony. In fact, one particular pest — the woolly aphis of the apple tree — is, I believe, more common m West . Australia than in any other part of the conti nent. Other diseases, too, such as the curly leaf, the peach aphis, the orange scale, are very prevalent here. Another point to which I ta...
The Home Rule Bill LONDON, Tuesday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 19 July 1893
The Home Rule Bill [By Cable.] [From ouh-Corkespondent.]. : London, Tuesday. In the House of Commons yester day the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir William. Harcourt, stated that Ireland's contribution, under Home Rule, to the Imperial Exchequer, had been fixed at £1,800,000. Mr. Sexton, in a speech delivered in the House, -implied that if the Home Rule' Bill were rejected it would be necessary to increase the expenditure on the military and the police in Ireland: Mr. Goschen commented on the -significance of this admission. Mr. T.'W. Russell said that if the Bill were passed there would be no surplus to hand over to the Imperial Exchequer. Ulster would refuse to contribute a. penny to the revenue of Ireland under Home Rnle. Mr. Sexton's remark indicated that the Irish leaders were sitting on the safety valve of crime. Mr. Balfour speaking yesterday, stated that the liberals had sold them selves body and soul to the Irish Na tionalists. Later. Clause 27 of the Home Rule Bill has be...

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 19 July 1893
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, ? -c ? To the Editor of The Hehald'. ' -.' Sir. — The miserable bungle that the hangman made in the execution of the man Archer on Friday last, in. N'eAv South W ales, must have caused eAren the advocates of capital punish ment to pause, and ask themseh'es if, in the year of Grace, Avith all its boasted christianitA' and philanthropy, if a more humane and certain way ? cannot be found of putting a wretch to death than to leave him dangling in . mid-air for tho space of ten minutes, while tho, contortions of hi.s face were frightful, and the wholo spectacle AA'as sickening to behold. And it must also be remembei-ed that; up to the last Archer protested his 'innocence ; the man Avas convicted on purely circumstantial evidence, which everyone knows is not infallible : that many an innocent man has paid tho death penalty, . being conA'icted on circumstancial evidence. Surely tho worst use that can be made of a fellow being is to hang him, if he is not fit to die and ...
France and Slam. AFFAIRS GETTING SERIOUS. THE REPLY TO THE FRENCH ULTIMATUM. LONDON, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 26 July 1893
France and Siam. AFFAIRS GETTING SERIOUS. THE REPLY TO THE FRENCH ULTIMATUM. [By Cable.] [From ouit Correspondent.] London, Friday. The Siamese havo cut the telegraph wires connecting Bangkok with the capital of French Cochin China. LoNi'ON, Saturday. The Siamese Government is seeking advice from Britain as to the course to adopt in regard to the French demands. Five hundred men of the French Legion, a body of troopf* specially raised for foreign service, are pro ceeding to Siani. Geiminyifl folding two warships to Siam. Tho British newspapers declare that Great Britain cannofc assent to the French territorial claims on Siam. These would, if permitted, deprive Siam of all utility as an independent State. The French consider the return of the Marquis of Duiferin to Paris is a pledge of peace, and that it will help to remove the difficulties with regard to Siam. On Wednesday the French captured the remaining forts of the Kong group. The town still holds out ; in the en gagement 300 Si...
Topics of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 26 July 1893
Topics of the Week. Several matters of local interest have been unavoidably held over. In our advertising columns -will be seen that a Handicap Billia-d Tournament is to be commenced on Saturday next, at the Wellington H^tel. The prizes are gold and silver medals. *'* The topsail schooner, ^Beatrice, came alongside the jetty on Monday morn ing to take in the cargo of timber that has been awaiting shipment to South Australia for some time. The process of discharging ballast from the schooner and taking in the timber, was very slow, owing to the primitive character of the appliances, but the weather was most fa vorable, there being very little swell on at the end of the jetty. The schooner had to haul off today, to make room for the s.s. Flinders. *** When it became known in Bunbury and Vasse that the Government had withdrawn the application for tenders for the Bunbury railway station, and the Boyamip-Busselton railway line, there were to be heard on all sides expressions of surprise,...

A CREAMERY, DAIRYING- # ENSILAGE. ' To the Editok 01? The. Heeald. Sir, — Kindly allow me to make a few explanatory remarks — first with reference to the establishment of a creamery, upon which subject Mr. Harper will lecture next Saturday morning. I wrote to: Mr. Harper suggesting a preliminary objection to thfi ?mwnnsn.l- i.n wit. t.Tip. distance tha dairymen lived from each other and from town, and he replied — ' I trust you will secure a gooa meeting ox dairymen as I wish to put a definite proposal before them, and I may add that the proposal is to establish the creamery in Perth. I think I can promise that there is nothing impos sible as far as those are concerned who live within a reasonable distance of the railway, and that the business would be lucrative.' It is hoped, therefore, that all who are, or will be interested will attend to hear Mr. Harper. As to the lecture in the af ternoon on dairying and ensilage, everyone who keeps a cow and has so much as a few thistles where...
THE BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 1893. THE GIRLS' SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 26 July 1893
THE BUftSBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY, JULY 26, 1893. THE GIRLS' SCHOOL. ? %r ? Our present Education Act lias en joyed a long and prosperous exis tence, and in many respects lias been well suited to the require ments and circumstances of the co lony. ? Like other legislation, how ever, the whirligig of time has ren dered some reforms necessary, and only recently the curriculum of the schools of the State has undergone a revision in the direction of liberalising and extending educa tion, whilst at the same time effecting some slight and much needed improvements in the status and emoluments of the educational staff. To the Central Board of Education is due the credit of in troducing the amended regulations, having for their object these en hancing prospects. We the more gladly recognise the practical and useful action of the Central Board in this case, inasmuch as we shall have serious occasion to take grave exception to its supineness in deal ing with, other aspects of the educa tional re...
THE CULTURE OF VINES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 26 July 1893
TEE CULTURE OF VINES. . To the Editoh of Thb Herald The admirable paper on Viticulture read last Saturday by Mr. E. M. Clarke, president of the Wellington Vine and Fruit Growers' Association, should prove of great value to all who are engaged in the vine growing industry. In dealing with £h'e ques^ tion, there was no attempt to shrrk facts, or ignore climatic conditions. At the commencement of his address the president told his hearers that ' vine growing could be carried on at a much greater profit than corn grow ing, and that it was established beyond donbt that a good, sound, and saleable wine could be produced. It is to this point I would call especial attention to those interested in wine making, and suggest that a similar method bo adopted to that in operation in other wine growing countries, leav ing the details to be worked out in a practical shape by the Vine Growers' Association. The movement now taking place in Rome of the other colonies towards the establishment of Winer...

THE CONVENT FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 26 July 1893
THE CONVENT FUND. ? v A very successful children's con cert in aid of the Convent Building Fund was'heldin the Catholic School room on Friday evening. The Sisters of Mercy have every reason to be satisfied — both with the attendance and with the creditable manner in which the juvenile performers acquit ted thfiTnsplvfis. The walls of the room were hung round with wreaths of evergreens and more wreaths hung from the lamps down the centre of the room. The tasteful manner in which the children were dressed and their happy faces gave an air of pleasant cheerfulness to the room which formed a striking contrast to the inclement and uninviting state of the weather outside. Indeed, the state of the weather was such that it must have been a very popular object to draw people from their homes to a concert; arid we are pleased to be able to state that the appeal on behalf of our popular and genial Sisters was res ponded to by all classes and all de nominations, with the result that the takings...
