Education Reform. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 2 August 1893
Education Reform. By Uno. In reply to correspondence from 'teachers and others Uno returns his thanks, especially to the teachers, for the confidence reposed in him, and he hegs to thank them sincerely for their private assurance of good will and good wishes. He, in return, begs to assure them he will use his best exertions to advance their interests, and endeavour, as far as possible, to have rectified their many grievances! and the many flagrant injustices in flicted upon them. Before the new Education Bill occupies the attention of Parliament it ia needless to indulge in useless comment, as the following facts will speak for themselves. Pedagogue writes : — ' Acting under instructions from my Local Board I sent home for the fees for the current week, the children of a family, who at least for two years previous had paid none. The children (four) have ^Tiot since attended school. Query: Can the parents be compelled to send their children to school ? If the parents still persist in...
A CONTRADICTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 2 August 1893
A CONTRADICTION. ? ? -V To the Editob op The Hehald. Sir, — Two lettei'S which appeared in late issues of 3-our contemporary the Southern Times, charged the Go vernment with extravagancies by em ploying too large a staff of engineers and inspectors on the railway works' of the southern districts. The writer in one or the letters states it has . ' always been a mystery to me why, '' when work is in the hands of the ' Government, it should always re ' quire more hands to carry it through ' tli an if same was in the hands of ' a private firm.' The writer is wrong, as such is not the case. On the Great Southern Railway of this colony, which is a private undertak ing, six engineers* were employed, whereas on the Perth -Bunbury, and Bunbury-Boyanup line, only three engineers have been engaged. Ad mitting the Great Southern Railway is 243 miles long, and the line from Perth to here and Boyanup only 133 the former was let in one contract, 'whereas the latter was let in four se parate contra...

Maxtecl, G. Lawrence. H. Gibbs. D. Flood, W. Burchain, G, W. Floyd. ' The Mayor was then formally voted to the chair. The chairman said he didnotlntend to sav much on this subiecfc ; there were peculiar circumstances sur rounding it. It will be seen that the tenders for the public works' which have been withdrawn from the news papers, still appear in the Govern ment Gazette. He then called upon the gentlemen whose names are at tached to the requisition, to speak. M...

GOVERNMENT INSPECTORS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 2 August 1893
GOVERNMENT INSPECTORS. To the Editob of Tns Herald. Sir, — I was delighted to see a letter in your- contemporary, sigued ' Economical Labor,' in which the writer rails at. the extravagance of the Government in appointing inspec tors to see that the work on the rail ways now in course of construction is properly done. For my part, I have always considered the appoint ment of inspecting engineers a slur upon the honesty and capacity of the contractor. Why not trust the work to the good faith of the contractor, leaving him to finish it as he pleases, and when he sends in his little bill pay it and take over the line ? In fact, Sir, what do we want, with en gineers at all ? Would it not be far better to let the contractors draw up their own plans and specifications, fix the price, and settle amongst them selves who shall have, the job. Were this course, adopted, the whole Public Works Department, could be abolished thus saving some £30,000 a year, aud the work could be done by the Hon. ...

The BUNBURY HERALD. WEDNESDAY AUGUST 9, 1893. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 9 August 1893
BUNBURY S-1ERALP, WEDNESDAY AUGUST .9, 1893. The Homesteads Bill now before Parliament is pregnant with inter est to the farming community, highly calculated to advance the welfare of our present population having tendencies in the diz-eetion of agriculture, will constitute an attractive feature to induce immi gration and settlement, and is or vital import to the development and progress of the country. In the absence of some comprehensive scheme for the settlement of the lands, of the Colony, the public works policy of the Government can only result in anephemeralpros perifcy to be followed by a corres ponding depression on the cessation of Loan expenditure. That the. Government have set themselves to solve the problem that shall obviate such a disaster all will admit. The present measure introduced by the Government is not of an experi mental character, the principle of the bill having been largely availed of as a basis of settlement in the United States and the Dominion of Canada...

THE HOMESTEADS BILL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 9 August 1893
....TEE HOMESTEADS BILL. .... . - ? ; ? . ; ?'» ? To the Editor of The Herald Sir,; — By the time this reaches you, the Premier's pet chick that- he has taken so long to hatch will be sent forth as it were to forage for itself; and really what does it amount to, and where az*e the advantages over the present land laws. It is true it looks grand and liberal on the face of it that 160 acres are given as a homestead block : but when we look at the leasehold, where £12 . 10s. must be paid for . every, thousand acres, per annum for 2nd class arid £S 6s. Sd. for 3rd class for thirty years, and not £12 as stated by the Premier for 2nd and £8 for 3rd class. Now, I ask. what's the tise of a man with a- small capital acquiring these small blocks if, he is to be handi . capped in that way. I do not see jmuch liberality there, and, as to the igiving of the homestead block, 1 think the settlers will be veiy apathetic in the matter, as there is no finance attached to it as in the old bill. This b...
Children's Concert. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 9 August 1893
Children's Concert, — « — The concert hold on Monday night in the Oatholio School-room proved a great success. There was a large and appreciative audience, the schoolroom maJ being literally crowded, Several new \, items were introduced, amongst which ) were the May Pole Dance, the ' Old \ Dutch Pair' and 'Bills to Pay.' I To name any one performer would be I invidious where all performed their parts so well. Tho training of the children to such a degree of perfection must have entailed an immense amount of time and patience on the part of the Sisters, Miss Daly, and \ ' Mrs. Stafford, who must have 'j felt rewarded by the enthusiastic re- | ception accorded to each performer. j The youthful negro troupe waa very \ much inevideace and simply brought j _- down the house, encore after encore \ being loudly demanded. The whole j affair passed off without a hitch, and 1 goes to prove that when care and at- t feention are paid in the getting up of -J an entertainment, the public of Bun- ...
