THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1880. THE EXTENSION OF THE EASTERN DISTRICTS RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880
TUB WEST MST1AMM. VlöILiN8 ET AUDAX BEIMÍÍÍFRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1880. THE EXTENSION OF THE EASTERN DISTRICTS RAILWAY. IT IS much to be regretted that the public discussion of the Eastern Districts railway extension should take place subsequent to a determination on the subject having been arrived at by the Legislature rather than previous to that decision. For certainly it will by no means tend to further a realiza- tion of the hopes we entertain, or to induce a compliance with our wishes on the part of the SECBETABY of STATE, if he finds that na sooner have we forwarded resolutions praying that the Imperial Government will sanction a loan for the purpose of carrying on the railway in a certain direction, than we at once proceed to quarrel in regard to those resolutions, and cannot agree amongst ourselves as to what that direction should be. But a faint interest, we are well aware, is taken by the public in politics generally. Railway extension, however, is more than a question of gen...
OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880
ÔÊÊASÏÔNAk NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. 0 ÜB friend ' Verus, ' apparently quite un- able to combat our arguments, publishes as a reply to them a column of characteristic misrepresenta- tions and of characteristic sneers, embellished with an astonishing exhibition of-shall we say " bor- rowed "-classical learning. There is only one statement in his effusion which we think it worth our while to notice. * Verus ' asserts that for pur- poses of our own we have mis-represented the English constitution and led the public to be- lieve what "all men will (not) have the 'chann- ing simplicity ' to accept " - that the Crown cannot now dismiss Ministers supported by a majority of the House of Commons. 'VerusV knowledge of constitutional questions must cer- tainly be as 'borrowed' as that which he attributes to ourselves, if he really imagines that the Crown has this power. The Crown has all sorts of powers in theory, which it does not possess in practice. And we are " charmingly simple " enough t...

ON CLASSING WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 October 1880
ON CLASSING WOOL. The following remarks on wool classing by ' Pastora' in the Town and Country Journal, will, we think, be of use to our country readers at the present time. Wool-classing, even of a very rough kind, has certainly been too much neglected by the sheep farmers of this colony : " It is a most important part of business at shear- ing time, to sort and class the wool, as required for pressing, and for this work a skilful person ought to be placed at the wool-table, and as the various fleeces come before him for rolling, and placing in the different woolbins, he must carefully remove all skirtings and stained points, putting the best pieces into No. 1 woolpack, and the rest under the rolling table, which is afterwards carefully screen- ed on the table and put into No. 2 sack. The first will be No. 1 pieces, to which the belly wool is added, it being shorn first. Care must be taken by the woolrofier in assorting the'fleeces in this way. Ewes ore being shorn, say merinoes ; ...

TOO BAD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 October 1880
TOO BAD. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-Is not your fremantle contemporary more than usually inconsistent to-day 1 In one column, in urging the advisability of not at- tempting to carry out public works, before we are in a position to carry them ont ' economically,' namely, under a ministerial system of Govern- ment, your contemporary says "Responsible Government first, and railways afterwards," because (so he says) public works constructed under ministerial Government would be con- structed''economically" and be the "making of the country." Turn we to another column of the same paper. Referring to the financial embarrassments of New Zealand-the finest colony of the group, blessed, too, with Responsible Government your consistent rival says : " All the public works will be stopped, and no new ones under- taken, the reason, of course, being-no money." Really this ia too absurd ! Yours truly, MERCATOR. October 2nd.

An SIB,-Perhaps you will allow me, in the tarst place, to point ont a misprint in the 32nd line of my letter dated Sept. 20th, re " A Railway System." In place of the words " the outlet of these ports " it should have been " the outlet of three ports." In yonr issue of Oct. 1st, I notice a corres- pondent upholds "the free pass system." I would ask you,-Do hon. members feel gratified at being placed on a par. with railway clerks 1 Who are the "pseudo-economists" who have started up with a " cheese-paring" cry, declar- ing such a step will seriously increase the finan- cial difficulties of the colony ? Is it probable that a' " free pass " on all the railways of the colony (as proposed and passed iu the House) is only worth a shilling each ? Was the member who brought forward the motion, its originator ? How many of the constituencies do you think are in favor of " payment of members " in a...

FARM AND STATION. GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF BREEDING. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 October 1880
ÎAIM AUB STATÏ8M. GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF BREEDING. (Continued.) Darwin believes that the development of low organisms into higher forms is chiefly due to-(1) influences, telluric and climatic, that had a modi- fying effect on the living organisms ; (2) to the struggle for existence, and the survival of the fit- test; (3) through natural selection, carried on mostly unconsciously ; (4) through certain habits and inclinations being strongly developed and in- herited by after generations. If the surface of the earth had remained in its primitive condition, the animal and vegetable organisms then existing would have adapted themselves gradually to the condi- tions favorable to their existence. Their variation would then have been comparatively slight, and their types would soon have become fixed. Any violent and general changes in the surface of the earth must have occasioned a great destruction of plants and animals, and a comparatively small number of them survived-that is, those whose...
OUR TREATMENT OF NATIVES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 October 1880
OUR TREATMENT OF NATIVES. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAR SIR,-The severe epidemic of iufluenza which is just now prevalent, brings before ua more forcibly than ever, the deplorable state of the natives, who are far more susceptible to the disease than we are, and who suffer much more from its effects. To see them afflicted as at this present time, without any refuge where they might have their ailments attended to, forces one to ponder upon the painful subject of our treatment of the native race. I think we should as a community ask ourselves this question Are we going to take any step towards improv- ing the present disgraceful condition of the natives, or shall we calmly watch that miserable, pitiable extinction, which must be their certain doom if left in their present neglected state ? Speaking generally of the natives in the South- ern portions of the colony, and more particularly qf thoqe near the centres of population, it may be truly said that, in life, they are ...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. LONDON WOOL MARKET. The third series of colonial wool sales for the current year opened on August 17, with a fair, but not an over-crowded, attendance of buyers, the cataloguebeingcomposednsfollows:-Sydney, 3,911 bales ; Port Phillip, 376 ; Tasmania, 373 ; New Zealand, 885; Cape and Natal, 1,307 ; sun- dries, 76; total, 6,928 bales. Competition was characterised bymueh hesitation, especially on the part of the French section of the trade, which operated very sparingly. According to Messrs. Charles Bairne & Co. prices exhibited much irre- gularity, and as far as can be judged by a single sale-and that not a strictly representative one they must be quoted, as compared with the close of the May-June auctions, about 5 per cent, cheap- er for Capes, and from 5 to 7 per cent, lower as regards Australian and New Zealand produce.

Ai the last meeting of the Anglican Church Synod the subject of missions for christianiz- ing and for ameliorating the condition of the native race received much attention, and a committee on missions was appointed to further consider the matter, with a view, if possible, to arrange some practical scheme by which the benevolent intentions of the Synod might be successfully carried out. The last issue of the Standard informs us that at a meeting of this committee held on the 21st of last month, it was resolved " that arrangements should be made for the commencement of a Mission Station on the Upper Murchison River in September of next year : a party being started in May to put up buildings and to make other preli- minary preparations, provided that by that time we have the prospect of sufficient ad- ditional pecuniary and other assistance being forthcoming, and of a good man being found t...
