MR. GLADSTONE. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886
MB. GLADSTONE. FEOM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN OWING to the secession from the Min- istry of Messrs. CHAMBERLAIN and TREVELYAN, the political situation at home has greatly changed since the last mail left, bat the aspect of affairs, as it presented itself at that time, is still of interest. Thus we find the English papers dwelling with effect upon the dramatic difference between Mr, GLADSTONE'S triumphs of 1868 and 1880 and his recent almost humili tating return to office. On the former occasions he was the people's idol. He was the personal embodiment of the political aima and aspirations of the great mass of his countrymen. He was no ordinary party leader. He had created' his enormous ma- jorities; he framed the policy they were to follow, and ho found in his associates at Westminster nothing but devoted submission and attachment. In 1880 his^MidJ^othian campaign, his own personal exertions, carried the . constituencies for his adherents trom one end of the country to the other, and be t...

CAMBRIDGE GULF. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886
CAMBRIDGE GULI?. FROM THE WEBT ATTBTBÍI.IA.N ON Monday we took a tangible step to bring one more block of our vast ter- ritory under the direct influence of government and civilization. On board the Albany as she steamed away from Fremantle were the Resident Magistrate for the new district and his staff, and the party which is to complete the survey of the new capi- tal of Cambridge Guli. With these qo many of the appliances needed for the nucleus of a settlement, as well as a supply of those conveniences which are required to make life tolerable if not comfortable in a tropical climate. The Albany is moreover but the first boat of a regular packet service. The Government bas arranged for a quar- terly despatch of mail steamers to that distant region. It is further extremely probable the t extensive communication will spring up ne tween Cambridge Gulf, and both Singapore and Port Darwin. In thie case we maj expect to receive intelli- gence from the infant township at fre qaeut inter...

Not Used to It. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886
¿ Not Used to lt. A welf-known real éstate dealer of Detroit has for several years driven a slab-sided old torso before one of the worst looking buggies on wheels. The harness is never greased, the vehicle never washed, and the long-haired equine has'nt been tickled with a curry-comb for years. The other day some friends of the agent decided on au improvement. The rig was taken from in front of his office to a livery «table, where the horse was brushed, the harness blackened, and the buggy washed and oiled. It was then returned without the Owner being any the wiser- Along towards night he came out of-his office, started for the horse, stopped and looked around, and pres- ently called a, policeman across the street and asked : «« Do you know my rig ?" "Yes." '? Did you see any one drive off with it ?" " No. This looks libé your horse. He's been here for two hours." " I declare, bnt this is my Tom, though I don't remember the buggy." ¡ " Why, sir, it looks as if somebody had been clea...

The Indian Question. A tall and commanding-looking Indian from the Canada side, haying a big back load of door-mats on his back, was tramping ap Randolph street yesterday when a man in a saloon beckoned him in. The red man's face lighted np with a " ten-cents apiece " smile of satisfaction as he walked in. There were three men present, and they seemed to be in & hilarious state. "See here, old copper-face," said one, as he shut and locked the door, "Fm down on In- juns, first, last and all the time. They shot an uncle of mine, and I've sworn revenge. Maybe you are ready to take the all-firedest licking a redskin ever got !" " Hu !" replied the Indian as he looked from one to the other. "And the infernal, varmints scalped and roasted my grandmother !" put in the second white man. " I didn't care particularly about the old lady, but it's the principle of the thing I look at. I've get to have Injun blood !" " Hu !" said the ¡Indian as he seemed to catch on. " And I" put in the ...

THE NEW GERALDTON R.M. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886
TEE NEW GERALDTON BM. MB. BÄOWN'S appointment to Geraldton had nothing whatever to do with his hav- ing "become dangerous to the existing order of things" as a contemporary de- clares. Tue present administration has never exhibited the slightest anxiety to maintain " the existing order of tilings " if the people wished to reverse it, al- though those responsible for carrying on the Government may have their own ojiiu ionupon the subject. Mr. Brown's ab- dication of political life will be, nat again, but a distinct loss to the Government, which he was ever ready to serve on Boards, ComuiissioBS, and Committees, aud in every way which lay in his power, aud which could promote the welfare of the country. He was appointed owing to the claims he had established by disting- uished political service during the past sixteen years ;¡ owing to the fact that loug ago lie had been promised Geraldton on the first vacancy ; and, further, owing to strong pressure having been brought to bear from t...

THE CRAWFORD DIVORCECASE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886
THEORAWFGRD DIVORGEOdSE. IT would serve no good purpose to re- produce in full thc evidence given in tho celebrated Crawford divorce case, of which we have heard so much by telegram. But the principal outlines of the case are as follows:-Mr. Craw- ford, the petitioner, married Mrs. Crawford, who was connected by marriage with Sir Charles Dilke, in 1881. In 188* circumstances led him to suspect that kia wife was improperly intimate with a Captain Forster. Eventually, she made to him a confession, denying intimacy with Captain Forster, but giving a cir- cumstantial account of improper relations * which has subsisted between herself and Sir Charles Dilke. All this Mr. Crawford recounted when giving his evidence, entering into full details of the whole discreditable story told him by his wife. The lady virtually admitted the truth of his evidence by not appearing in the witness box to contradict it. There was, however, scarcely any corroborative testimouy,and & lady who, it was ...
